Happy Hour News Briefs
Troy Newman of Operation Rescue and Co-Founder of the Center for Medical Progress has a press release:
“I call on Mitch McConnell to resign from his position as Senate Majority Leader because of this leadership failure. Republicans must replace him with someone who can unite the majority and lead the Senate to accomplish President Trump’s agenda…”
Yay! We agree, let’s ditch Mitch!!!
But, wait a moment… Operation Rescue and the Center for Medical Progress? The people who gotta copy of iMovie and created a totally fake baby chop shop meme out of Planned Parenthood? Those guys? What did amply be-chinned Mitch do to them?
“I am extremely disappointed in the Republican members of the U.S. Senate who could not band together to get this bill done. It angers me that we have to fund Planned Parenthood for another year. This means Planned Parenthood will have the resources it needs to continue its killing spree, and thousands of lives will be lost because of it,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Co-Founder of the Center for Medical Progress, which exposed Planned Parenthood’s participation in the illegal sale of organs and tissue obtained from aborted babies… Defunding Planned Parenthood was a high priority for the Trump administration, which promised to redirect funds from the abortion giant to legitimate health care providers that do not participate in abortions.”
