A Democrat Congressman is threatening violence if President-elect Donald Trump follows through with his promise to sign legislation to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business.
Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio is a Democrat who is challenging pro-abortion Democrat leader Nancy Pelosi to lead his party in the next session of Congress. Perhaps because of his need to show potential leadership he went too far in an interview over the weekend concerning Democrats and their opposition to defunding the nation’s biggest abortion company.
Ryan threatened violence in the streets if Planned Parenthood is defunded.
“If he tries to defund planned Parenthood or kick people off their health insurance or privatize Medicare or cut taxes for the wealthy, you know, we’ll have a Youngstown street fight in the capital. That’s what will happen,” he said.
During a press conference last week, pro-life speaker Paul Ryan said Congress is committed to passing another bill to defund the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies. Hearings have exposed how the abortion company likely violated federal laws to sell the body parts.
Earlier this year, Congress approved legislation to defund the nation’s largest abortion company. Pro-abortion President Barack Obama vetoed the bill and the House did not have enough votes to overcome objections from pro-abortion Democrats — who prevented Congress from reaching a two-thirds threshold to override Obama’s veto.
In his comments to reporters, Speaker Ryan said Congress will pass another piece of legislation. This bill to defund Planned Parenthood should arrive at the desk of President-elect Donald Trump, who has already promised to sign such legislation into law.
“We’ve already shown what we believe with respect to funding Planned Parenthood,” Speaker Ryan said. “We put a bill on Obama’s desk in reconciliation. Our position has not changed.”
