Just stopping by to say hello and share with you these videos of
two three! amazing Congresswomen speaking out against the Pence Amendment on the House floor. The Pence Amendment would cut off federal funds to Planned Parenthood.
I am simultaneously shaking in anger and beaming with pride. Representatives Gwen Moore (D-WI), Jackie Speier (D-CA) and Louise Slaughter (D-NY) are heroes.
First, Rep. Moore, who, in response to the anti-choicers’ claims that Planned Parenthood commits genocide against black babies, said, “I know all about black babies. I’ve had three of them.” People had the nerve to get up and leave during her speech.
And Rep. Speier, who testified about her own abortion experience:
ETA: I found another one, of Rep. Slaughter. Thanks, Nancy Pelosi’s YouTube channel!
I wish I had a transcript. If anyone comes across one (or both) please let me know.
