Congressman flips out after being schooled on abortion

November 19, 2019 0 By Ronny Jaskolski


Rep. Cohen: To suggest I’m disingenuous shows
your ignorance or your absolute inability to deal with Congress people the way they
should. Rep. King: Miss Parker, you brought a comparison
between slavery and abortion, and as far as I recall that’s the first of that type of
testimony that I have seen before this committee or any committee. Is that an original thought on your part,
have you had others that index the same comparison? How did this come about? Star Parker: Others have looked at it as well,
and in fact, when you put the Dred Scott decision next to the Roe V Wade decision, they read
almost verbatim. I’d like to also address something that was
brought up earlier, if I may, when it comes to mixing the abortion issue with the challenges
that we face in many of our hard-hit communities. I feel it disingenuous that the issues of
Medicaid would come up and other opportunities for
us to re-address what has happened and broken down on our most distressed zip codes the
way that Planned Parenthood specifically targets these particular zip codes with abortion. Abortion is a leading cause of death in the
black community today. Since Roe V Wade was legalized, 20 million
humans have been killed inside of the womb of black women, and then on Halloween Planned
Parenthood tweets out that the black women are safest if they abort their child rather
than bring it to term. To the gentleman from Texas who brought up
Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, I think that it is important that we put in
the record that the needs of those that are most vulnerable in society cannot be addressed
with abortion. Abortion feeds a narrative that women are
victims, that they have no control over their sexual impulses and a result of this narrative
being forced down into our hardest hit communities, we are seeing now recklessness in sexual activity
and marriage has collapsed. In the 50’s, 70% of black adults were married
today that number’s 30%. This is causing a lot more social pathologies
that have to be addressed through different types of legislation, not the heartbeat bill. The heartbeat bill is to protect the innocent— Rep. Cohen: Chair? Rep. King: Chair recognizes the gentleman
from Tennessee, the ranking member. Rep. Cohen: Thank you. Firstly, we’re in filler time, waiting for
somebody to come testify. I would ask that we allow Miss Jayapal to
do filler as well as as well as the chair and I’d also like
to say that I’m not disingenuous about anything I say about Medicaid or Medicare or LIHEAP
or snap programs and to suggest I’m disingenuous shows your ignorance or your absolute inability
to deal with Congress people the way they should. I believe in those issues and I think they’re
proper. And to say I’m disingenuous is just wrong
and I expect an apology.
