Senator Gets Choked Up In Passionate Speech: ‘Every Adult Here Was Once 20 Weeks In The Womb’

In an emotional speech Thursday on the Senate floor, Sen. James Lankford questioned whether the nation had become “numb” to abortion and cared more about animal rights. “It seems the ultimate irony to me that we spend time talking about humane treatment of animals being put down, like in horse slaughter, and we completely miss children being ripped apart in the womb and their body parts being sold,” Lankford said. Lankford, R-Oklahoma City, choked up at times during his remarks about a video that became public this week showing a Planned Parenthood official talking about abortion methods used to preserve certain organs for medical research. Lankford described the technique and said, “That’s a human being we’re talking about. “It doesn’t bring me comfort to know that one child is torn apart so maybe they can do research on the child’s organs so at some future moment (they can) help a different child.”
