Faith and Freedom with Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and BarbWire’s Matt Barber… An 11-minute weekday radio program discussing hot topics in the area of religious liberty, the sanctity of human life and the family.
Defunding Planned Parenthood should be a no-brainer. Anyone who still wants to continue funding this genocidic organization that brutalizes children and then sells their body parts should not be in office at all. And those who try to oppose this need to ultimately be removed by the voters.
Mat Staver: Matt, you’ve got a Republican dominated or majority House and Senate, and it should be a no-brainer that they could get a bill passed in both houses to defund Planned Parenthood. I know that there’s this Continuing Resolution that’s coming up, and that’s this “kick the can down the road” resolution, while we still have a budget that is out of control. A deficit that continues to skyrocket into the trillions of dollars. And now we continue to kick the can down the road and continue to lift the spending lid so that the government can continue to borrow more and go more in debt.
What ought to happen as part of this continuing resolution is a complete removal of funding of Planned Parenthood from it. And if some of the people on Capitol Hill want to filibuster that, if they want to oppose it, let them do it. If they want to shut down the government then this is something worth shutting down the government over. Conscripting money from taxpayers in order to kill innocent children and kill their body parts.
Matt Barber: Yea Mat, but the establishment wing of the Republican party does not seem to have the political will to do what’s right here. Fox News reported, on FoxNews.com on September 13th:
With Congress being officially in session and just a handful of days before the potential shutdown deadline, GOP leaders haven’t said how they will handle conservatives’ demands while also rounding up enough votes to prevent a shutdown. Conservative’s long-standing opposition to Planned Parenthood and abortion was reignited this summer by the release of secretly recorded videos showing group officials offhandedly discussing how they sometimes provide tissue from aborted fetuses for medical researchers…
Well, that’s an understatement of the videos. These showed atrocities. Holocaust-type atrocities, that we haven’t seen since Nazi Germany…
