MARTHA MACCALLUM: You also have to think about the babies. Because, you know what technology has afforded us in recent years, I think back to when I had my first child, you could barely see, it was just a fuzzy sonogram, black and white, I could barely see the baby. It's not like that anymore. We know what they look like at ten weeks, at eight weeks. And so we can't pretend that we don't know that anymore. And that's where we're at today. That's why we need to reevaluate and think all of this through. Mike, I'll let you in here. 

MIKE SLATER: Lower abortion rates, that's good, but still, way too high. This is why I encourage everyone who is disturbed by this video to contact your local crisis pregnancy center. These are pro life pregnancy centers, that meet women where they are, work with them through their pregnancy, and then after they give birth to the their beautiful children. We've been saying for a long time we can't combat planned parenthood, unless we shower women with the love that they deserve. And also lift up the Planned Parenthood alternatives, and that's these pro-life centers. Now part of that also, is not giving federal funding to Planned Parenthood, in the mean time while they're still giving abortions. 

MACCALLUM: Alright that's going to turn into a war on women discussion, and fortunately because of the breaking news we have, I hope you come back. Because we need to do the political side of this, the funding side of this as well, and how it's gonna translate into the election.
