Steny Hoyer: “I Don’t Accept the Premise That Planned Parenthood is ‘Harvesting’ Anything”

They’ve been saying for decades that an unborn baby is just a clump of cells. It’s not like it has feelings or anything. People have referred to unborn babies as “parasites” and “uninvited guests.” As if the child put himself there.

You’d think that an entity with such descriptions would have no value. If it has no value, then why would an abortion clinic harvest the “parasite’s” organs? If it’s just a mass of tissue, then they should have no use for any part of it.

They know very well that it’s a person whom they’re killing every time they perform an abortion. The mother knows it, the doctor knows it, and all the nurses involved know it. And since the child poses absolutely no threat to any of them, no one can argue that it’s self-defense. It’s murder, plain and simple.

Some people flat out deny that Planned Parenthood was doing anything illegal or immoral. Nancy Pelosi said that Planned Parenthood was involved in a controversy that doesn’t exist. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer said the whole thing is a non-story and that there’s nothing to see here. CNS News reported:

On Capitol Hill, CNSNews.com asked Hoyer, “In its last annual report, Planned Parenthood said it did more than 327,000 abortions in fiscal year 2013. Recent reports indicate that Planned Parenthood doctors have been harvesting tissue from aborted babies. So should federal taxpayer dollars be required to subsidize Planned Parenthood or should Congress cut off all federal funding?”

Hoyer responded, “Look, I don’t accept the premise that Planned Parenthood is ‘harvesting’ anything. Planned Parenthood is doing very, very important services for literally hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of women as relates to their health.”

“I know there have been controversies, national controversy over these tapes that pertain,” said Hoyer.  “I haven’t reviewed the tapes, but I’ve read articles on them. And, certainly, the Congress, as I understand it, will be having hearings on it, and I’ll be interested to see when that is.”

“But I’m not going to jump to conclusions,” he said.  “But I will say that I reject any premise that Planned Parenthood is harvesting fetal organs, or body parts, anything.”

I think this is what they call ‘denial.’ Politicians who are beholden to the abortion lobby are simply trying to sweep this whole thing under the rug and act like it never existed. They say it’s only an issue now, because the GOP has a “war on women,” and they’ve been looking for anything as an excuse to try to bring Planned Parenthood down. And the only people who should be brought down are those sneaky rascals at the Center for Medical Progress.
