Sean Duffy and Gwen Moore


Gwen Moore claimed to be offended by Sean Duffy's pro-life comments.

What did Sean Duffy say that was so offensive?

From Live Action News:

On Friday, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-WI) criticized her colleague, Rep. Sean Duffy (R-WI), after Duffy called on black legislators to take action to protect minority women and babies from abortion.

Duffy declared in his speech, (which can be seen below):
“My friends, liberals, Congressional black caucus members, they talk about fighting for the defenseless and the hopeless and the downtrodden but there is no one more hopeless or defenseless than an unborn baby. But their silence is deafening.”
Duffy cited the high abortion rate among minorities and asked members of the Congressional Black Caucus why they were not speaking out about “how their communities are targeted in abortion.” Moore, who is black, took offense to the pro-life comments.

“After nearly 30 years in public office, not much surprises me anymore,” said Moore. “So you can imagine my lack of astonishment when my dear friend and colleague from Wisconsin, Sean Duffy, rolled out abortion statistics among African-American women to lecture black legislators like me about defending the welfare of our constituents.”

Moore went on to call Duffy’s comments “offensive” and accused him of “hypocrisy.”

Duffy contends that his comments were not an attack on Moore or any of their colleagues, but rather “an invitation to work together to defend poor, minority women against a powerful industry that targets them and preys on their vulnerability.”

“It’s worth noting that Rep. Moore did not refute the harrowing statistics – more African-American abortions than live births in NYC – because they are irrefutable,” he added.
Typical Gwen Moore. Typical Leftist.

The truth is irrelevant.

She should be ashamed.

Meanwhile, Sean Duffy is trying to save lives.
