Sasse Mourns Planned Parenthood’s Disregard of Human Rights

“Another example of how little regard Planned Parenthood’s leaders have for basic human rights.”

July 15, 2015

Today, U.S. Sen. Ben Sasse issued the following statement regarding a video showing Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood, discussing the trafficking of body parts of unborn babies.

“Well meaning people from both parties should agree that the trafficking of baby body parts is abhorrent and has no place in civilized society. Planned Parenthood’s callous discussion of babies’ hearts and lungs gives Americans an inescapably clear reminder of what science already knows: a baby is more than a ‘lump of cells.’ It is time to set aside meaningless euphemisms and have a serious discussion.

“This is yet another example of how little regard Planned Parenthood’s leaders have for basic human rights and further reason to prohibit their access to taxpayer dollars. As a co-sponsor of Senator David Vitter’s Title X Abortion Provider Prohibition Act, I am committed to getting the federal government out of the abortion business.”
