I think I must be witnessing the filming of a horror movie. Can it be true that body parts of babies are being removed and sold for profit? I’m nauseated by the statements being made by Planned Parenthood. Are we really living in a world where the only thing potentially wrong with harvesting body parts of babies is IF the funds from the sale of body parts exceeds the expenses of running the organization that is doing the killing? Is this really where we are?
I am a scientific simpleton. But even a child who knows what is going on can figure out the sickening truth about harvesting fetal organs.
Planned Parenthood’s foundational argument is that these babies are not living human beings. If they are not living, then their body parts would not have value. If they are not human, then why are they harvesting their parts instead of the parts of pigs and goats and mice and monkeys? Of course, there IS a beating human heart. That’s why they want that heart! And that is how we know a person is a person. Personhood is life that is human. Let me repeat: The body parts would have no value if their source was not human life.
Then there are their arguments about money. “We’re not making a profit on these body parts.” I’m unconvinced that profit is not being made by Planned Parenthood. Some of the undercover videos, in fact, are extremely incriminating. One representative, in speaking about the sale of fetal tissue, spoke of wanting a Lamborghini and another spoke of desirable body parts going for higher prices. (Again, obscenely repulsive.) But even talking about the funding is a distant secondary concern when the issue is life and death. The truth is that Planned Parenthood representatives have explained exactly where they like to crush the babies to remove them so that the vital organs will not be crushed. They are “expert”, in their own opinions, in being able to crush the babies in the right places so that the “right” body parts can be harvested. Is this conversation that we are hearing and having in America real? Am I going to wake up?
Then there’s the health care argument touted by proponents of Planned Parenthood. “Those who are wanting to defund Planned Parenthood would make healthcare unavailable for millions of women.” The truth here is so obvious that I can hardly believe Planned Parenthood representatives can keep a straight face while verbalizing this lie. We live in the United States of America. There are problems with our health care system, but mammograms and pap smears are some of the most available of health procedures. American women have access to mammograms. But they do not go to Planned Parenthood to get them. The truth is, the provision of mammograms and other care that is non-birth control related is not what Planned Parenthood does and they know it! They are, of course, primarily a baby-killing service, killing a child every 94 seconds, and taxpayers are currently being forced to support this baby-killing to the tune of a half-billion dollars per year.
But the most horrific part of all of this is the discussion itself. We are actually discussing—looking at each other without grimacing, and talking—about whether or not this murderous organ recycling-for-cash is acceptable…and there are people in every arena who are looking into cameras and defending the butchering of babies and the sale of their body parts. Shockingly, it’s not the murderer on death row or the “criminal” element in society that’s most defensive of Planned Parenthood. The loudest protective voice for the killing at Planned Parenthood is the voice from the Oval Office. It’s the twice-elected President of the United States, Barack Obama. The new criminal element is in the White House. He is sitting in Congress. She is winning national elections. He is a doctor…a lawyer. She is a representative of a “service” organization funded by the United States of America. Unthinkable!
I am with the Prophet Ezra…
O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God; for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our guiltiness is grown up unto the heavens. (9:6)
p.s. I know that I have not said anything today that has not already been said by many righteous people across our country in recent days. But my conscience cannot permit my silence on the subject while those who are being slain and sold cannot speak for themselves.)
