Love him or hate him as a Presidential candidate, Governor Rick Perry is right on the money this time.
As we covered yesterday, the murderous taxpayer funded organization known as Planned Parenthood has been exposed for the monster it is. One of the group’s foremost “physicians” was caught, on camera, describing the process of selling baby parts leftover from partial birth abortions. It’s sick. It’s immoral. These people should be in prison.
Rick Perry agrees. In a no-holds-barred interview with Breitbart News, Perry said:
“The video showing a Planned Parenthood employee selling the body parts of aborted children is a disturbing reminder of the organization’s penchant for profiting off the tragedy of a destroyed human life.”
Profiting off the tragedy of destroyed human life. That’s exactly what Planned Parenthood is doing, and precisely why they need to be defunded. Forever.
Rick Perry is no stranger to the pro-life movement, by the way. Elizabeth Graham, the Director of Texas Right to Life stated that during Perry’s tenure as Governor, Texas had “passed more pro-life legislation in the last 10 years than in history.”
Need proof? We’ve got it. In addition to signing a bill prohibiting Texas’ taxpayer funds from going to Planned Parenthood, Rick Perry also signed:
- The “Women’s Right to Know” Act in 2003, a parental consent law and ban on abortions after 26 weeks gestation in 2005.
- The new funding for abortion alternatives in the 2005 state budget.
- The sonogram law in 2011.
- Supported House Bill 2 (HB 2) in 2013, the law that banned abortions after 20 weeks and imposed stricter safety requirements on abortion clinics.
Thanks for believing that all Americans, both born and unborn, have the unalienable right to life, so that they might subsequently have the liberty to pursue happiness, Governor Perry. #Respect.
