Congressman Earl L. "Buddy" Carter (Ga-01) condemned the actions of Planned Parenthood on the floor of the United States House of Representatives today. 

While on the floor, Carter said "the videos that have been released exposing the appalling acts committed by Planned Parenthood are horrifying. These are despicable acts on par with the sickest of criminals behind bars. That is exactly where these people belong. In prison, behind bars." Carter urged "federal law enforcement to execute a full criminal investigation into these alleged actions."

He also reaffirmed his strong belief that "taxpayer funds should never be used to fund or offset the costs of providing abortions, and it is especially unacceptable when these illegal and horrific practices, like the selling and trafficking of unborn fetal tissue, are happening."

Full Transcript:

I stand today in support of the innocent and the unborn.

I strongly believe now is the time for Congress to stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves.

The videos that have been released exposing the appalling acts committed by Planned Parenthood are horrifying.  These are despicable acts on par with the sickest of criminals behind bars.  That is exactly where these people belong. In prison, behind bars.

These videos have given everyone insight into the inexcusable and horrific culture at Planned Parenthood.

Taxpayer funds should never be used to fund or offset the costs of providing abortions, and it is especially unacceptable when these illegal and horrific practices, like the selling and trafficking of unborn fetal tissue, are happening.

As a father and grandfather, I believe we must seek justice for these crimes that have been committed.

I urge federal law enforcement to execute a full criminal investigation into these alleged actions by Planned Parenthood.

These two bills being debated today, of which I am a proud cosponsor, are the necessary next steps.

I urge my colleagues to support this legislation and to support life.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.  I yield the remainder of my time.
