During the Special Report broadcast last night, Fox News contributor Brit Hume offered up some thoughts on the 41st anniversary of Roe vs. Wade and the decades-old abortion debate. More precisely, he blasted the High Court’s landmark decision granting women a constitutional right to “snuff out” an innocent life “with a beating heart.” This, he argued, according to estimates, has happened to roughly 55 million unborn children since the decision was brought down in 1973. He added that unborn babies as young as 20 weeks “can hear and recognize their mother’s voice,” and that the tactics of the Left to obfuscate breakthroughs in science and medical research are increasingly desperate and absurd. Meanwhile, his criticisms of Planned Parenthood were particularly withering. “[T]he biggest chain of abortion clinics in the country refers to itself as ‘Planned Parenthood,’” he said. “In 2012, this organization says it carried out quote ‘abortion procedures’ 329,445 times. Whatever that number represents, it’s not parenthood.”
