VIDEO: Gutierrez thanks Planned Parenthood
At Wednesday's U.S. House hearing on Planned Parenthood, Illinois' Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-04) thanked the people that work at Planned Parenthood, attributing their services to 500,000 less pregnancies last year.
"I'm not for abortion," Gutierrez said, "but I do honk that I'm pro-choice."
Gutierrez said no one has proven that Planned Parenthood is selling body parts, but, "I'm right to defend my two daughters' rights."
