Watch Elizabeth Warren Slam GOP Planned Parenthood Attack

“Do you have any idea what year it is? Did you fall down, hit your head and think you woke up in the 1950s or the 1890s? Should we call for a doctor?” – Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D -MA) speaking to Republican colleagues, August 3, 2015

Sen. Elizabeth Warren took to the Senate floor yesterday to deliver a scathing and hilarious attack on Republicans’ efforts to defund Planned Parenthood. She called out the GOP’s history of holding other issues hostage in an effort to roll back women’s healthcare funding.

Republicans have initiated many convoluted attacks, but the recent release of dishonestly edited guerrilla footage is among their most disgusting yet. Planned Parenthood actually offers a huge range of important health services aside from abortion, which only makes up 3 percent of their annual services.

Planned Parenthood offers cancer screenings, birth control, STI screening for all genders, and other standard clinical care. But they’re distinguished from traditional clinics by being nonprofit and working with patients of all income levels, regardless of insurance status.

Thankfully, the vote to move forward on defunding Planned Parenthood failed yesterday in the Senate. Republicans needed 60 votes to stop a Democratic filibuster, but only came up with 53.

Watch Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s epic speech above and sign the petition to stand with Planned Parenthood against GOP lies and defunding efforts.

There are not too many things I support the spending of my tax money on. But I'm glad that they are using my tax money to support Planned Parenthood. I can't pretend to know what's in a Republicans head, I can only say I'm glad they lost this one.
