Rep. Chris Smith: ‘Planned Parenthood Is
Child Abuse Incorporated’
In a speech at the March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday, Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) said Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, “is Child Abuse Incorporated,” pointing to recent undercover videos, which showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale and procurement of aborted babies’ organs.
“Planned Parenthood is child abuse incorporated,” said Smith. “Recent undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress have exposed in numbing candor several high-level Planned Parenthood leaders gleefully talking about procuring children’s organs all for a price, all while altering gruesome dismembering procedures to preserve intact livers, hearts, and lungs.
“This isn’t as you know the first time Planned Parenthood has been caught doing the unthinkable,” Smith said. “In 2011, undercover videos by Live Action exposed Planned Parenthood clinics that were eager, eager to facilitate secret abortions for child sex trafficking victims and another series in 2012 exposed Planned Parenthood promoting sex selection abortion, especially of little girls.
Smith said the press will eventually recognize what pro-lifers already know that Planned Parenthood “is the tip of an ugly iceberg, a multibillion dollar industry that systematically exterminates children and hurts women.”
“Subsidized by over $500 million in taxpayer funds every year, Planned Parenthood dismembers or chemically poisons a baby to death every two minutes, killing over 7 million innocent children since 1973,” he said.
Smith noted that this week there will be an override of President Barack Obama’s “veto of the bill to defund Planned Parenthood, and we will win that in the House.”
