How Can We Continue to Turn Away?
A close friend of mine witnessed a miracle last year. His wife delivered a baby at 20 weeks. As I write this post, that baby is 10 months old and thriving in every way. The picture at the top of the page is of a baby born at 19 weeks. The most recent undercover video by The Center for Medical Progress shows a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the desire to fill a requisition for 120 intact babies between the ages of 18 and 22 weeks for the purpose of harvesting their organs and other tissue. Maybe you think I'm exaggerating or have the story wrong. Maybe you think her words were taken out of context. Maybe you think there was some trick editing. See for yourself, and you decide.
Is it possible that there are sane individuals in our women's health clinics who are making a profit from the harvesting of body parts from babies aborted at a stage of life when they are VIABLE?
Here is what our President had to say about the practice of dehumanizing groups of humans, killing them, and then harvesting their body parts:
President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel” tradition that needed to stop. He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of humans and of the problems that arise when “you are not able to see someone else as a human being.”
Again, listen to the question that is posed to the President, and then listen to his answer. Watch the entire video if you like, but the critical part starts at minute 48.
You see, he gets it when it is about killing albino people in Africa and harvesting their remains for a ritual, but somehow fails to see how his words would apply to killing defenseless babies who are viable, and harvesting their parts for profit. How can someone so intelligent fail to see how crazy his words must seem when the reason for killing these babies is almost always the convenience of the mother, the pressure of parents, or the insistence of the sperm donor or others. How can he fail to see that the cruelty to a little baby is just as horrific if not more so. How can he fail to see that it is barbaric to profit from the use of these little babies body parts in any way - not in the abortion, nor in the sale of body parts.
Hillary Clinton says that the videos were "disturbing." Then she stand up and gives full support to her old friends and contributors at Planned Parenthood. And who are these heartless humans who run a butchery for human flesh. It is unsurprising that this organization is so inhumane and amoral. The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, established the founding principles of the organization almost a century ago. Those founding principles were the same eugenic ideas that caused millions to March for the Third Reich - the desire to purify the human race of those who were not quite as perfect as the Margaret Sangers of the world thought they should be. And she would know best, just as Hitler would know best, which humans should be left out of the gene pool.
In “Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger penned her thoughts regarding immigrants, the poor, and the error of philanthropy. Sanger’s ideology of racial and social hygiene bleeds through her writings on breeding an ideal human race:
They are…human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning… human beings who never should have been born.So Christians seeking to follow Jesus by helping the poor are messing up Margaret Sanger's plans. Those efforts tend to increase human populations of those most detrimental to the future of the race.
Organized charity itself is the symptom of a malignant social disease…Instead of decreasing and aiming to eliminate the stocks [of people] that are most detrimental to the future of the race and the world, it tends to render them to a menacing degree dominant.
Hillary and many of her followers hold Margaret Sanger up as some kind of a leading light. Hillary received the Margaret Sanger award, and had this to say when asked about her great appreciation for Margaret Sanger:
To exert a bit and paraphrase: She admires Thomas Jefferson, even though she deplored his unrepentant slave holding. Hillary admires Margaret Sanger even though she abhors her statement about eugenics. How can this intelligent woman juxtapose those two ideas. For Margaret Sanger, the motivation for reproductive rights, the pills, and abortion, was eugenics. The closer parallel would be to say that she admired Hitler, but found it distasteful that he wanted to clear out the master race of those he deemed less admirable. Margaret Sanger and her organization and those inspired by her have killed more babies than Hitler killed Jews...many times over. Hitler made lamp shades from the body part of the Jews. Planned Parenthood buys fancy cars and homes from the body parts of babies.
What are we to do? Will we continue to watch our sitcoms and football games while this new breed of Sangerites attempt to rid the world of those who aren't as good as them? Will we continue to elect Presidents and Senators and Congressmen who use your tax dollars to fund Planned Parenthood? In the face of the horror of these undercover videos, only two Democratic Senators voted to stop sending your money to this baby butcher. EVEN THOUGH the half billion dollars we now send to Planned Parenthood would have been used to fund other women's reproductive health facilities.
Thousands will protest on August 22, 2015. You could join me on that day in front of a clinic near you. The information about where the protests will occur is here: http://protestpp.com/protests/
