CNSNews caught up with Steny Hoyer, a Maryland Democrat, and asked him whether or not Congress should pull federal funding (in the hundreds of millions of dollars annually) from the abortion providers.
Hoyer’s response was pretty amazing. First, he denied that the video shows what it shows, then said he hasn’t seen the video. Here’s his response:
“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. But I will say that I reject any premise that Planned Parenthood is harvesting fetal organs, or body parts, anything.”
Got it? Let’s summarize what Steny is saying: The video doesn’t show what it shows and I haven’t seen it. Amazing.
A word to Steny. Before shooting your mouth off, first look at the videos, and then render an opinion. They are the party of Satan. Evil is their mantra. How dare we Christians say anything about them committing wholesale murder for pure profit.
Someone tell Steny we have the video he can check out! What do you think? Was Steny lying? Share your views below and add this story to your Facebook/Twitter timeline.
