Elizabeth Warren has evidently had enough. After yet another mindless, endless, doomed effort by the GOP to deny health care to millions of women by stripping Planned Parenthood of federal funding - an effort spurred by hysterical wingnuts who invoked "the American Joseph Mengele" in claiming that bogus leaked video showed "the savage butchery of an organization that kills our children and sells their organs" so they'll have to shut down the whole government Right Now - Warren launched a fabulously fiery tirade against a bunch of mean-spirited, misogynistic idiots who live in the wrong century and get all their facts wrong and need to shut up already. She opened with an aghast, "Do you have any idea what year it is?!" and ended with a furious, "The government does not fund abortions. Period." Warren/Sanders would be such a dream team. Meanwhile, watch righteous rage in action, and rejoice.

“Do you have any idea what year it is?” Warren asked

“Did you fall down, hit your head, and think you woke up in the 1950s? Or the 1890s? Should we call for a doctor?”

“Because I simply cannot believe that in the year 2015, the United States Senate would be spending its time trying to defund women’s healthcare centers. On second thought, maybe I shouldn’t be surprised. The Republicans have had a plan for years to strip away women’s rights to make choices over our own bodies.”

Warren then proceeded to discuss what Planned Parenthood means for millions of women in the United States and exposed what is perhaps the biggest public misconception about what any defunding of the program would accomplish.

“The government doesn’t fund abortions,” she said. “Period.”

” A vote today to defund Planned Parenthood is not a vote to defund abortions. It’s a vote to defund cancer screenings and birth control and basic health care for millions of women.”
