Amber Phillips writes: “It’s absolutely horrific,” Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) told Lou Dobbs on his Fox Business show Wednesday night when asked for her reaction to leaked Planned Parenthood videos showing officials talking about selling fetal tissue. “I get a little emotional.”

On “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” Love came across as empathetic, heartfelt and eloquent as she laid bare her emotions on national television about abortion; emotions that seemed raw even weeks after the news of the leaked Planned Parenthood videos first broke.
