Roby fights back tears in impassioned response to ‘barbaric’ Planned Parenthood video
(Video Above: Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-AL2) delivers impassioned speech on U.S. House floor)
WASHINGTON — Just hours after news broke that Planned Parenthood’s top doctor was caught on camera explaining how abortion industry professionals illegally sell the body parts of aborted babies, Alabama Congresswoman Martha Roby (R-AL2) took to the floor of the U.S. House to deliver an impassioned speech urging Congress to watch the disturbing video and take action.
In accordance with House rules, Roby was given one minute to speak on the topic. But that’s all she needed to deliver her emotional comments, which ended with members in the House chamber applauding.
The transcript of Roby’s remarks can be found below, but it’s definitely worth taking a minute to watch her deliver them in the video above.
Mr. Speaker, I rise to raise awareness about a disturbing development.
Today video surfaced of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, admitting – in fact bragging – about the harvesting and trafficking of fetal organs after abortions.
To those who haven’t seen the video, I encourage you to watch. But be forewarned. The casual, callous way she details how babies can be killed in such a way that their tiny hearts, lungs and livers can be taken and sold for profit simply horrifying.
To quote Doctor Nucatola “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver… so I’m not gonna crush that part,”
“I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
It is honestly hard to believe a human being could bring themselves to believe this is okay. Of course, this is completely illegal, but that apparently isn’t stopping Planned Parenthood.
Mr. Speaker we have long fought to prohibit federal funding to Planned Parenthood, and we will continue to. But this admission of barbaric behavior warrants a closer inspection of this organization.
This is one of those moments that – as a nation and as a people – we have to ask ourselves, “who are we? Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity? Are we going to look the other way while babies are brutally killed and organs harvested for profit?”
These aren’t specimens! These are babies for goodness’ sake!
I may only have one minute today, but I promise we are not finished talking about this. Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
