Pointing to the 196,543 pairs of baby socks at the U.S. Capitol representing half of the babies aborted per year by Planned Parenthood, Sen. Sasse urged, “we need to have images like this so that people start to reflect on the magnitude of this suffering that’s happening out there.”
Life, he argued, transcends party politics.
“I’m a conservative Republican, but I care about a whole bunch of things far more than I care about the Republican party or the Democratic party,” Sasse declared, referencing DNC Chair Tom Perez’s controversial words that “every candidate who runs as a Democrat” and even “every Democrat, like every American” should support abortion.
He wasn’t done.
He called out the media in the perfect way as well.
“The picture I tweeted out is just science,” Sen. Sasse affirmed. “It’s a picture of an actual baby. It’s a picture of what’s actually happening inside a mom’s womb. And that kind of picture needs to be the thing that we’re about…”
But that’s not how many in the media see it. Talking afterwards with MRC Culture, Sasse condemned the media’s handling of abortion.
“First of all, there’s just not honesty in dealing with the magnitude of the crisis and where Americans actually are on the issue,” he noted. “…Think about the butcher that is Gosnell, and how the media just tried to overlook that for ages.”
Here’s some video.
Gotta love that!
Always nice to see people in positions of power standing up for what’s right.
