Sensenbrenner: If We Fund Planned Parenthood, How Will We Feed Starving Children?
Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, Republican of Wisconsin, used his time at today’s House hearing on Planned Parenthood to demand that the single pro-choice witness at the hearing choose between federal funding of Planned Parenthood’s preventative health care services for low-income women and “feeding starving children.”
“Could you please tell us why Planned Parenthood needs to get over half a billion dollars of federal funding every year when there are other pressing needs, such as feeding hungry children, that maybe we should put that money into?” Sensenbrenner asked Yale Law School’s Priscilla Smith.
“I’d like to know what your priority is,” he repeated, “Planned Parenthood or feeding hungry children?”
When Smith noted that Planned Parenthood’s services, such as affordable contraception, STI testing and cancer screenings, help the “mothers of those children,” Sensenbrenner was baffled.
“How can they be the mothers of the children when children are aborted through Planned Parenthood?” he asked.
