Carly Fiorina, Planned Parenthood, and the Government Shutdown

For those with the stomach and the curiosity, I invite you to the 5:59 mark of the video above.  Then, read's Sarah Kliff, who claims Mrs. Fiorina is wrong about what she described, saying "But the things Fiorina describes — the legs kicking, the intact "fully formed fetus," the heart beating, the remarks about having to "harvest its brain" — are pure fiction".

Now, I am not The Hammer.  I don't advocate a "burn it down and start all over" strategy because Republican leaders have been insufficiently aggressive and/or successful in attaining the things that they ran on.  But for crying out loud--if we do not stand for the protection of that BABY on the platter in that video--because that's what it was--ex utero, it is no longer a fetus--then we stand for nothing.

Does the government have to stay shut down forever?  No.  Might we actually in the end, fold and pass something that funds Planned Parenthood?  Maybe.  Is closing the government and making American lives inconvenient for a few weeks in order to bring the light of shame upon the practice of infanticide for profit worth the cost?  You goddamn bet you .

UPDATE:  A handy discussion of the serve and volley on this subject at The Federalist.

How does what we see differ from murder?

AND if the mother had been murdered and the baby die, it would have been charged as a double homicide in every state. How do progressives square that?
