MASON CITY – “They cut the baby’s face open so they can get that fresh baby’s brain” a woman told Iowa Governor Terry Branstad this week while he visited Mason City.
Branstad was called upon this week while holding a town hall meeting in Mason City to defund Planned Parenthood by a woman who went into graphic detail on the abortion process. He’s been under constant pressure for weeks from many who want the agency defunded by the state.
A woman with a large stack of papers and a wavering voice told Branstad that it’s time to defund Planned Parenthood, describing the abortion process as she believes it happens which includes “no painkillers”. She claimed the “babies are manipulated” so that Planned Parenthood can “get better body parts”.
She told the governor that Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal had defunded the agency and blamed Obamacare and big corporations for continuing to send funds its way.
Branstad rebutted by saying the state of Iowa gives “no direct funding” to Planned Parenthood and said Senator Joni Ernst was working to thwart the agency. He said the threat of lawsuits was one reason he had not went after the agency with more vigor.
