Watch Elizabeth Warren Proudly Stand With Planned Parenthood

Before Monday's Senate vote on defunding the bill for Planned Parenthood, Senator Elizabeth Warren took the floor.

She began her speech by asking this question to those in favor of defunding: "Do you have any idea what year it is? Did you fall down, hit your head and think you woke up in the 1950s or the 1890s? Should we call for a doctor?"

The Senator's powerful words didn’t stop there. Throughout her speech, she defends Planned Parenthood and the importance of its role in our society. The Senate later voted down the bill. 

Watch the entire speech below:
