Congresswoman Reveals Abortion, on House Floor

Outraged at the callous demagoguery of her fellow representative, Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) made a shockingly personal revelation during a congressional debate.

She said:

“I really planned to speak about something else. But the gentleman from New Jersey just put my stomach in knots. Because I’m one of those women he spoke about just now. I had a procedure at 17 weeks pregnant with a child who moved from the vagina into the cervix. And that procedure that you just described is a procedure that I endured.

“I lost the baby. And for you to stand on this floor and suggest that somehow this is a procedure that is either welcomed or done cavalierly or done without any thought, is preposterous.”

Her heartfelt, brutally honest response occurred after a debate over Rep. Mike Pence’s (R-IN) push to defund Planned Parenthood.
