Bachmann: Planned Parenthood “Committing Crimes and Enabling Young, Minor Girls”

Robin Marty

If Bachmann is at a conference for the religious right, you just have to expect some crazy, unfounded soundbites.

Who was the Belle of Ralph Reed’s “Faith and Freedom” conference this weekend?  Why, Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who was in her element as she preached for a nation run under biblical law and toyed with a possible presidential run.

And, while she was at it, she threw in calling Planned Parenthood a “criminal enterprise” for good measure.

Via USA Today:

Bachmann, a Minnesota congresswoman, accused the group of corruption and of “committing crimes and enabling young, minor girls.”

“This organization has by their own records performed 324,008 abortions in 2008 and 2009 and that’s in addition to the trafficking of under-age girls that has gone on under Planned Parenthood’s nose,” she said. “Do you think we could start here by defunding this organization?”

Watch the speech below.  She doesn’t want to “talk about it, it’s so disgusting.”  Then she talks about it a lot.
