Republican’s Mind Blown When Witness Tells Him Some Planned Parenthood Patients Are Mothers
A Republican mind is a fragile thing. It often struggles to comprehend basic concepts, and for Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI), he couldn’t believe that mothers worked at Planned Parenthood.
On Wednesday, Sensenbrenner was discussing defunding Planned Parenthood with Yale Law School’s Priscilla Smith.
“Could you please tell us why Planned Parenthood needs to get over half a billion dollars of federal funding every year when there are other pressing needs, such as feeding hungry children, that maybe we should put that money into?” Sensenbrenner said.
“I’d like to know what your priority is,” he repeated, “Planned Parenthood or feeding hungry children?”
Smith calmly suggested to Sensenbrenner that Planned Parenthood provided additional services like testing for STIs, cancer screenings, and affordable contraception to mothers of those poor children he was referencing.
“How can they be the mothers of the children when children are aborted through Planned Parenthood?” Sensenbrenner said.
Smith turned to statistics, reminding the Congressman that over 60 percent of women who seek an abortion already have one child.
“Well, I don’t think that there’s statistics that indicate that’s the case,” Sensenbrenner said.
