Is America A Barbaric Nation?

I can just hear Muslims now iterating this remark. Selling aborted baby parts puts us over the deep end in their eyes. They think that we are morally bankrupt

Pew Research poll concludes:


Most Muslims say that having an abortion is morally wrong, including three-quarters or more in 24 of the 37 countries where the question was asked.23 Azerbaijan is the only country where fewer than a quarter (23%) say terminating a pregnancy is immoral.

By contrast, few Muslims say that abortion is morally acceptable. In only five countries do one-in-ten or more say the practice is morally permissible: Bangladesh (18%), Uganda (15%), Bosnia-Herzegovina (14%), Mozambique (13%) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (10%).


Meanwhile back on the home front Senate Republicans led by Joni Ernst have offered a bill to defund Planned Parenthood.

The Daily caller reports:

 Joni Ernst

A group of Republican senators, led by Iowa’s Joni Ernst, introduced legislation Tuesday to strip Planned Parenthood Federation of America of the more than $500 million of taxpayer money that it receives every year.

The bill comes after the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials talking with disturbing frankness about selling the organs of unborn children to research facilities.

The group’s affiliates across the country performed 327,653 abortion procedures in 2013, according to its most recent annual report. That report shows that Planned Parenthood took more $528 million in federal money, 41 percent of its revenue.

“As a mother and grandmother, I find this footage of Planned Parenthood’s role in the harvesting of the organs of unborn babies morally reprehensible and vile,” Ernst said in a statement. “The American people are horrified by these videos as well. Simply put, this legislation ensures that funding for women’s health is protected and that taxpayer dollars will not go to Planned Parenthood.”

The group’s affiliates and national office reported $77.9 million in “other operating revenue.” No word on how much of that revenue came from the sale of aborted babies’ body parts.

Nineteen senators are cosponsoring the legislation. They are:

      John Barrasso of Wyoming
      Roy Blunt of Missouri
      John Boozman of Arizona
      Richard Burr of North Carolina
      Dan Coats of Indiana
      Tom Cotton of Arkansas
      John Cornyn of Texas
      Ted Cruz of Texas
      Steve Daines of Montana
      Mike Enzi of Wyoming
      Deb Fischer of Nebraska
      James Inhofe of Oklahoma
      Johnny Isakson of Georgia
      Ron Johnson of Wisconsin
      James Lankford of Oklahoma
      John McCain of Arizona
      Mitch McConnell of Kentucky
      Jerry Moran of Kansas
      Rand Paul of Kentucky
      David Perdue of Georgia
      Pat Roberts of Kansas
      Ben Sasse of Nebraska
      Tim Scott of South Carolina
               John Thune of South Dakota

“The horrendous videos of senior executives from Planned Parenthood discussing in callous tones and shocking detail their role in a national scandal requires a congressional response,” McConnell said. “Our constituents demand it; the unborn deserve it.”

No Democrats have joined in cosponsoring the bill so far.

“Every member of the Senate and every member of the House should stand together and say: under no circumstances should federal taxpayer dollars, your money and my money, be sent to Planned Parenthood,” said Cruz. “I commend my colleagues for introducing this bill and am honored to stand with them in this important fight.”
