On today’s “Faith and Freedom” radio program, Liberty Counsel’s Mat Staver and Matt Barber called for the creation of “sanctuary states” where Planned Parenthood facilities are defunded and shut down and abortion is simply outlawed by Republican governors and state legislatures.
Praising the right-wing smear campaign against Planned Parenthood, Staver reiterated his call for the creation of abortion-free zones as he urged Congress to defund the organization and for states to follow suit, because Planned Parenthood should not be receiving “any more for genocide.”
“But beyond that, we need to stop abortion,” Staver declared, urging governors to “just simply say, ‘Enough is enough, we’re not going to kill children in our state.'”
Saying that is it not enough to simply defund Planned Parenthood, which is “like funding the Holocaust,” Staver advocated the creation of “sanctuary states” where abortion would be against the law.
“You’ve got these so-called sanctuary cities,” he said, “setting these up for the protection of illegal aliens, we should set up a sanctuary location, a sanctuary city, but particularly a sanctuary state that says that children within our state, they’re protected, we will not stand by and allow them to be slaughtered in the womb.”
Barber eagerly agreed, suggesting that Arizona, Georgia, Louisiana, Indiana, Kansas, Missouri, Ohio, Texas, Oklahoma and other “red states” should all “come together” and declares themselves to be “sanctuary states for the preborn.”
