Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) invoked the Old Testament while denouncing Planned Parenthood during a House Judiciary Committee meeting, reported RawStory. He compared Planned Parenthood to boiling babies.
Gohmert’s rant is nothing short of completely insane:
[I] was reading about a woman that came complaining to the Prophet. She was in a city that was under siege. And she complained that another woman had talked her into a deal where the first time, they would boil her little baby and eat the child. And then after that, they would boil the second woman’s child and eat that child. Well, let’s face it: this hearing we’ve heard over and over, “If it’s to save lives, it’s OK.” I could not believe how reprehensible that was, how immoral.
“So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son,” continued Gohmert, quoting 2 Kings 6:29.
