Gerritson: Babies or Bureaucrats? An open letter to Congress

The unborn don’t get a furlough, like a bureaucrat during a government shutdown, instead they have a permanent “solution” violently forced upon them as they are dissected alive, parceled out and sold for profit.  Can anyone in Congress coherently argue that saving government bureaucrats from temporary layoffs should come before rescuing live babies? Please watch this video and forward it to your contacts and tell them to ask their Representative and Senators, "Babies or bureaucrats?" . WARNING: it graphically makes the point in 60 seconds.

Gerritson: No Fake Leadership Show Votes On Defunding Planned Parenthood
