U.S. Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ) brought a tiny but powerful prop with him to last year’s Congressional hearing on Planned Parenthood’s “medical procedures:” a diaper made for a micro-preemie, a baby born alive very prematurely. During the hearing, former abortionist Anthony Levatino described in chilling detail the process of committing a dismemberment abortion (the lucrative and barbaric procedure that yields saleable baby parts for Planned Parenthood).
Franks, a member of the House Judiciary Committee, is renowned for his unapologetic Pro-Life stance and his ability to convey his values passionately and eloquently. His comments in the following clip are no exception.

The tiny diaper, dwarfed by Rep. Franks’ hand, would fit a child born very prematurely to parents who wanted him or her. In such a circumstance, every available medical resource would be administered to the child in hopes that he or she would thrive. But a child of the same age could, in many states, be brutally dismembered in utero. He or she would never be given the chance at Life outside the womb.
