Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) claimed Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, saves babies during a virtual House hearing Thursday.
The far-left representative was in the process of criticizing pro-life Republicans when she said her mother received care from the organization founded by eugenicist Margaret Sanger.
“If we want to talk about Planned Parenthood, let’s talk about how many lives Planned Parenthood has saved and how many babies have been born because of the prenatal care provided by Planned Parenthood,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“And if you don’t believe it, and if you’ve never met a Planned Parenthood baby, I’m happy to let you know that I am one,” she continued. “And that my mother received and relied on prenatal care from Planned Parenthood when she was pregnant with me.”
According to its 2019-2020 annual report, Planned Parenthood affiliates committed 354,871 abortions, which is the highest number of abortions ever reported in a single year. Compare that to the 8,626 prenatal services provided.
