House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi today defended taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business — despite a fourth video showing the abortion giant potentially breaking state and federal laws to sell the body parts of aborted babies.
She said Democrats will “overwhelmingly” oppose any bill funding the feral government that also includes provisions for de-funding Planned Parenthood, and called the battle to de-fund the abortion company a “distraction.” As Politico reports:
The California Democrat’s comments add to the risk that the government will shut down in October if Congress is unable to pass a stop-gap measure because of objections from GOP lawmakers to Planned Parenthood’s federal funding.
Eighteen House Republicans told GOP leadership on Wednesday that they are unwilling to back any government spending bill that does not strip the healthcare organization of the roughly $500 million in taxpayer funds it receives.
“It’s really a distraction,” Pelosi said of Republican threats to block a government funding bill over the issue. “Shutting down the government is a terrible option…and it proved to be very unpopular when Republicans did it before. Let’s hope… cooler heads prevail.”
“Please know that we cannot and will not support any funding resolution — an appropriations bill, an omnibus package, a continuing resolution or otherwise — that contains any funding for Planned Parenthood, including mandatory funding streams,” the 18 Republicans wrote.
Pelosi, who offered a strong defense of Planned Parenthood, said it’s up to Boehner to “to weigh … what is important.”
After three shocking videos caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, a fourth video has been released today catching a Planned Parenthood vice president discussing how to break or get around the law to sell aborted babies.
New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.
In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Ginde at the abortion-clinic headquarters of PPRM in Denver to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs. When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRM’s abortion practice, “Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.”
“We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush” fetal organs during 2nd trimester abortions, says Ginde, brainstorming ways to ensure the abortion doctors at PPRM provide usable fetal organs.
As LifeNews reported, the first video of undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the second video, Planned Parenthood doctor Maru Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts — telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a baby’s liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.
