Englewood, NJ — Speaking at a rally in support of Planned Parenthood on March 22, 2011, New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg told the group that pro-life people “do not deserve the freedoms of in the Constitution.”
Operation Rescue makes the following statement in response, attributable to Troy Newman, President, Operation Rescue.
Sen. Lautenberg wishes that he could disenfranchise pro-life supporters, which comprise the majority of the American people, and turn them into second-class citizens based on their deeply held religious and moral convictions. His remarks are unconscionable and offensive, not to mention extremely inappropriate for a United States Senator who has been entrusted with looking to the best interests of the people.
We find Lautenberg’s remarks highly hypocritical since his state of New Jersey is home to the notorious illegal late-term abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, who recently had his license to practice medicine suspended after he was caught operating an illegal bi-state late-term abortion racket. Let us not forget that the bodies of 35 late-term babies were discovered at Brigham’s illegal abortion clinic and that he remains the subject of a murder investigation. New Jersey is also the home of the Planned Parenthood office where an employee was recently caught on tape aiding and abetting the concealment of sex trafficking.
Perhaps Lautenberg should spend more time actually protecting the public from predatory abortionists in his home state instead of wishing to strip precious Constitutional rights from those who do work to protect women and their innocent babies. While Lautenberg prattles on in support of those who exploit women at tax-payer expense, women and their babies remain at risk in Lautenberg’s state from unscrupulous abortion clinics like Brigham’s and Planned Parenthood.
We demand that Sen. Lautenberg apologize for his bigoted and hateful remarks immediately and publicly.
