Marco Rubio is outraged and he jumped on Twitter to share his angst today after hearing all the fury that’s been conjured up over the dead lion Cecil. He wants to know where that fury is for all the dead babies who were taken by Planned Parenthood.
According to Fortune Magazine on July 29, Florida Senator Marco Rubio is not seeing priorities in the media today as the Minnesota dentist is raked over the coals for shooting a lion, but Planned Parenthood continues to kill babies with abortions. The Bloomington dentist has folks furious world-wide after killing a protected lion, who was fitted with a GPS collar by Oxford University researchers, so they could study its movements.
Rubio is questioning the lack of outrage over the planned parenthood videos in comparison to the news that the lion was killed, according to The Business Insider today. Rubio tweeted, “Look at all this outrage over a dead lion, but where is all the outrage over the planned parenthood dead babies.”
This dentist was with a safari hunting party that lured Cecil the lion out of the confines of a national park, where it lived a protected life from hunters. The hunter did this with food and then shot the lion with a bow and arrow. That shot didn’t kill the lion, so for another 40 hours or so Walter James Palmer and his safari group hunted the wounded cat and then put him down with a gun.
Palmer lured the lion outside of Hwange National Park so he could legally shoot it, or so he thought. The lion was a protected animal, but Palmer said he didn’t know this until after his trip. He said he relied on the guides, who were all local, to lead him on a legal lion hunt.
He had beheaded the lion and skinned it, apparently for trophies of his kill. One of the guides was charged with “failure to supervise, control and take reasonable steps to prevent an unlawful hunt.”
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conveys that it is “deeply concerned” about the killing, and Zimbabwean authorities are planning to press poaching charges, but Palmer says he hasn’t heard a thing from authorities as of yet.
Palmer has been the target of online death threats and protests outside his dental office are planned. A petition is circulating online that wants the U.S. to extradite Palmer to Zimbabwe to face justice in the killing of this lion. According to Fox News people were leaving stuffed animals outside his dental practice to draw attention to what this man did.
Rubio is furious that the senate failed to take up a bill that would stop taxpayer’s money funding for Planned Parenthood. He has voted in the past to take the funds away from this organization and now he claims he is “sickened” by the latest videos showing big money dealings by Planned Parenthood employees selling aborted baby body parts.
Planned Parenthood has taken the stand that the videos are “heavily edited.” They also say that the videos “falsely portray Planned Parenthood’s involvement.” Along with the abortions, which they claim make up only three percent of their business, they perform millions of STD tests and thousands of PAP smears and breast exams each year.
Still Rubio doesn’t understand where priorities stand when the lion killing saturates the headlines in comparison to all the unborn babies that are killed and used for their body parts.
