J.D. Winteregg, John Boehner’s primary opponent for Ohio’s 8th District, has gone on the offensive challenging the Speaker to immediately defund Planned Parenthood.
In the wake of the revelations in an undercover video that Planned Parenthood was illegally harvesting fetal body parts for financial gain, Winteregg blasted Boehner’s Pro Life record.
The sting was orchestrated by Center for Medical Progress, a non-profit group that monitors and reports on medical ethics.
They released the undercover video last Tuesday. It showed director of medical services Deborah Nucatola brokering the sale of aborted baby parts.
In the shocking video, Nucatola discussed how Planned Parenthood facilitates trafficking in fetal organs and tissue.
Winteregg urged Speaker Boehner to defund Planned Parenthood immediately!
Nucatola discussed prices and detailed how Planned Parenthood’s doctors severely altered their methods to prevent damage to valuable organs: (Warning Graphic!)
“So then you’re just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”
Nucatola explains to the undercover reporters that the butchered body parts sell for $30 to $100 apiece.
Moreover, the more fully-formed the baby body parts like the heart and liver are, the more valuable those parts are.
Now we know why they are fighting so hard to keep keep partial birth legal. Planned Parenthood is able to harvest more profitable body parts.
Winteregg and his team immediately went on offense! #TeamJD used social media and other outlets to make it clear that Boehner’s Pro-Life record is dismal and strongly urged him to defund Planned Parenthood immediately!
Planned Parenthood currently receives nearly a half-billion dollars in taxpayer dollars annually.
It has been rumored for a long time that Planned Parenthood and other abortion mills like it have been using legal loopholes involving “site fees” to skirt the law.
Winteregg posted the following press release on his website:
I am calling on Speaker Boehner to defund Planned Parenthood immediately. Taxpayers should not be forced to pay for these gruesome actions, and any investigations into Planned Parenthood practices should come after Congress moves to defund the organization. This organization receives public money because of DC’s out-of-control political pandering–and people with moral or religious objections are being forced to pay for actions they oppose. This must stop now.
The Speaker holds “the power of the purse.” He can–and must–defund this organization. If he champions himself as “pro-life,” now is the time for him to prove it. Regardless of what he decides to do, however, the fact remains that he has voted to fund Planned Parenthood. I’m challenging him in the Republican primary in March because we need principled and proactive leadership, not empty rhetoric, meaningless hearings and continued acquiescence to the Far Left.
I know and respect the value of life. I will defend religious liberty. I won’t squander my constituents’ hard-earned tax dollars. And I will never cast a vote to fund Planned Parenthood.
Winteregg decided to primary Boehner earlier this year after Boehner “caved” on executive amnesty and the Cromnibus bill. He decided that people in Ohio-8, as well as the American people needed someone who will listen to them.
Winteregg proclaimed on his website: “Whether ignorant of what progressives represent or compliant with their agenda, my current representative–Speaker John Boehner–has proven that he has neither the ability nor inclination to fight progressives on behalf of his constituents and the American taxpayers.
It’s time that we have a fresh face who both understands what he’s fighting and is prepared to fight it “tooth and nail.” The Speaker talks about it. I’m the guy who’ll actually do it.”
This is the best chance to send Boehner packing. The attempt to oust him from his speakers position failed. It is time to send him packing entirely. He can go lobby with Eric Cantor!
Call To Action! How can you help Winteregg defeat the Speaker and fight the atrocities of Planned Parenthood?
Running against Boehner in 2014, Winteregg raised a total of $48,000. Boehner spent nearly $13 million. Winteregg took almost 23% of the vote. He needs more funding!
