PENNSYLVANIA (KMOX) - Pennsylvania state Representative Wendy Ullman, a Democrat, likened miscarriages to, "just a mess on a napkin," on Tuesday.
The controversial statement came as she was expressing opposition to a Republican-sponsored bill that would require abortion providers to handle aborted remains with dignity, instead of treating the children as medical waste.
Shortly after her statements, the Pennsylvania Family Institute released a statement.
"Every Pennsylvanian should be appalled at such a heartless comment, which devalues life and ignores the pain experienced by so many women and families in Pennsylvania,” the statement read.
