Marco Rubio Takes Heat For Comparing Lion Killing And Planned Parenthood Scandal

After widespread furor erupted in reaction to the Minnesota dentist accused of shooting Africa's most famous lion, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) questioned why people weren't as outraged over Planned Parenthood. In a Tuesday tweet, the Republican presidential contender posted:

"Look at all this outrage over a dead lion, but where is all the outrage over the planned parenthood dead babies."

An anti-abortion group shot undercover videos by posing as a representative of a fetal donation company. One of the videos shows a Planned Parenthood employee sipping wine and eating cheese while speaking on abortion procedures that doctors use to preserve tissue for research. Rubio, who is pro-life, joins a group of Republican presidential candidates who have condemned Planned Parenthood in the wake of the video releases. Rubio, along with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), are all in favor of legislation that would strip federal funding for the family planning agency. Ted Cruz has even argued that the Department of Justice should investigate the organization.

Rubio believes people should be more appalled by the Planned Parenthood videos then the killing of a lion.
