Rep. Bill Patmon, who represents Cleveland in the Ohio House of Representatives, announced Tuesday he has introduced a bill to defund and investigate Planned Parenthood in the wake of the abortion mill’s fetal body part selling scandal.

Patmon made the announcement at a rally on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse.

Making his voice ring that much louder is the fact that Congressman Patmon is a Democrat. What’s more, he is an African-American well aware of Planned Parenthood’s work to exterminate black lives. He notes 63% of the abortions in his district are performed on black women. “You hear a lot of demonstrations across the country now about Black Lives Matter,” he said. “Well they skipped one place — they should be in front of Planned Parenthood.”
