The nation is walking "down the road to depravity" by allowing Planned Parenthood to sell the body parts of aborted fetuses and dissecting those that are still alive, Republican presidential candidate and former senator Rick Santorum tells Newsmax TV.

In an interview aired Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show," Santorum said he was sickened by a video in which a former medical worker who harvested tissue from fetuses aborted by Planned Parenthood described how she watched one infant's heart beating before she was asked to cut out its brain.

"How low can we go? How much can we walk down this road to depravity that we just see a little child, a child with a beating heart, and your reaction is to dissect it. Your reaction is to remove a brain while the heart is beating. How cruel is this?" Santorum said.

"How much have we dehumanized that child in the womb? How callus are we to human life and what's the effect on the American psyche? What's the effect on who we are as people if we just have such coldness to how we treat innocent human life?"

Some in Congress have called for Planned Parenthood — which describes itself as an agency delivering "vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide" and receives millions in federal money — to be defunded.

But Santorum said that doesn't go far enough.

"Planned Parenthood should not just be defunded, it should be prosecuted. If that child was alive, there are laws in place to prosecute these people who are doing these horrific things," he said.

Santorum also ripped into liberal lawmakers who condone the practices of Planned Parenthood, which have been bared in a series of undercover videos released by the conservative Center for Medical Progress.

"The most remarkable thing is … the politicians will stand and defend this and say this is okay —these are leaders of our country who have just lost all moral, their entire moral compass," he said.

He accused them of hypocrisy for being able to "criticize and condemn the Nazis for this type of experimentation," but when it's funded by "some group that gives lots of money to liberals, it's okay."

Santorum is now CEO of EchoLight Studios, producer of family-friendly films such as "Seasons of Gray: A Modern Day Joseph Story," rated PG-13 for a scene of violence and some thematic elements.
