Musgrave says Planned Parenthood covers up rape, incest

"I think we all need to pause in our daily lives and think about what Planned Parenthood really does. And, you bet, the Senate is a problem right now when we're talking about defunding them."

Musgrave challenged Democrats who have pledged not to cut the group's funding.

"[Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid says he'll shut down the government before he'll take money away from Planned Parenthood, and I say to Harry Reid 'Go ahead!'"

She argued cutting Planned Parenthood's funding should be a non-negotiable point for the GOP during the current budget talks and called the current House Republican leadership including Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) "the most pro-life Congress ever."

Family Research Council PAC President Connie Mackey echoed Musgrave's call for the GOP to shut down the government over the issue of Planned Parenthood's funding.
