There's a couple of things Planned Parenthood's Cecile Richards said a few things yesterday that really gave me pause.
CNS News had the quotes.
First, the CEO of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards responded to questions from Doug Wagner of WHO Newsradio.
Wagner said, “At what point does that child - or that unborn person, fetus – whatever you want to call it – at what point does that baby get the constitutional rights?”You know, you'd think that before you started a mass slaughter of unborn human beings for profit, you'd question yourself on that one little point.
“Well, I don’t really, actually – I don’t know that there’s an exact answer for that” Richards replied.
You'd think that might come up, right?
But then she says something really interesting.
“Because what the point is (inaudible) that women have and there are, as you know, restrictions on women’s ability to terminate a pregnancy – and when they can, but until a pregnancy is viable they have the right to make that decision.”Wait, what?
Did she just argue for the validity of laws restricting abortion once an unborn baby is viable or can live outside the womb? If so, that would be a huge breakthrough because up to this point, Planned Parenthood has fought every restriction on abortion.
Did we just have the president of Planned Parenthood agree that once a baby is viable outside the womb then restrictions are valid? I think babies have been born and survived as 22 or 23 weeks. This would be a big change. Let's take her up on her offer and pass some legislation.
