Huckabee on 2nd Planned Parenthood Video: 'We Must End Nightmare of Abortion'
Mike Huckabee said a second disturbing undercover video of a Planned Parenthood official proves "the nightmare" that abortion has become in America.
The new video (below) shows a Planned Parenthood official haggling with an undercover activist over the price of aborted fetus specimens.
Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014, is seen on the tape talkign about “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”
Planned Parenthood claims the video was deceptively edited by the Center for Medical Progress, which it says has been "widely discredited."
The footage came out one week after a video showed another top Planned Parenthood employee casually discussing the demand for aborted baby parts for medical research.
Huckabee said on "America's Newsroom" today that the footage is "sickening," and said it's time to go beyond just trying to defund Planned Parenthood.
Huckabee said it's time for the country to decide whether it's "civilized behavior" for someone to discuss the "selling of parts of a baby, as if we were trading parts for a Buick at an auto parts store."
"We need to really have a more serious, thoughtful discussion of ending this nightmare of abortion that's taken 60 million unborn babies since 1973," said Huckabee.
The former Arkansas governor and 2016 presidential contender emphasized that "life begins at conception," and the science on that is "settled."
"Sonograms and the science that has developed over the last several years has made this a more urgent issue. People can pretend that this is just a blob of animated protoplasm, but it is not. This is a human being," he said.
