When Planned Parenthood is cutting babies’ faces off to extract their brains and sell them, it’s no time to mince words. Rick Santorum understands that. His comments on Newsmax on Tuesday really can’t be added to:

STEVE MALZBERG: Senator, when you saw that last Planned Parenthood video talking about the live baby that was then cut up — I mean, there’s no one stronger on this issue than you. It’s unfathomable that we’re funding this, you and I are paying for this!

RICK SANTORUM: How low can we go? How much can we walk down this road to depravity that we just see a little child, a child with a beating heart, and your reaction is to dissect it. Your reaction is to remove a brain while the heart is beating. How cruel is this?

How much have we dehumanized that child in the womb? How callous are we to human life and what’s the effect on the American psyche? What’s the effect on who we are as people if we just have such coldness to how we treat innocent human life?

Planned Parenthood should not just be defunded, it should be prosecuted. If that child was alive, there are laws in place to prosecute these people who are doing these horrific things. And here’s the most remarkable thing, is that the politicians will stand and defend this, and say that this is okay. These are leaders of our country who have just lost all moral – their entire moral compass. We can criticize and condemn the Nazis for this type of experimentation, and then have it happen, and because it’s funded by some group that gives lots of money to liberals, it’s okay.
