Planned Parenthood is at it again, but this time, people may not look the other way. The abortion giant that eats millions of our tax dollars for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every year may finally have churned out something the public can’t stomach.
In a video released by the Center for Medical Progress Tuesday morning, it was allegedly revealed that Planned Parenthood has been harvesting the organs of babies aborted in their clinics and exchanging them for profit. If this simple reality isn’t enough to make you lose your lunch, check the video out for yourself and watch as Planned Parenthood’s own Dr. Nucatola casually participates in a question-and-answer session about the dirty details of this dark trade — while she passively munches on a salad. She speaks about it so routinely, so expertly, that it can only add to the nausea a sane person naturally experiences at hearing that babies’ livers, lungs, hearts, etc, are being sold after they’ve been killed (or, in Dr. Nucatola’s own words, ‘crushed’).
The public is horrified after major news outlets such as the Washington Post and the New York Times picked up the story, and rightly so. But the pro-life community is anything but shocked. Planned Parenthood has been found in the habit of several disturbing behaviors, including but not limited to covering up sexual abuse and telling people with HIV that they shouldn’t have to disclose their HIV status to sex partners.
And, of course, how can we forget that the nation’s largest abortion provider routinely kills and dismembers babies for profit everyday? Why is anyone at all surprised that such a disgusting, disturbing organization is engaged in something so disgusting and disturbing? These babies aren’t human to them; they’re profit. Why should they think anything more of the parts that make up their bodies?
But, this story does come with a glimmer of hope, though ever-so slight. If people are disturbed by the buying and selling of dead babies’ body parts, perhaps it will bring them to consider the blatant immorality of killing the babies in the first place. After all, if a fetus has human organs, how can it be argued to not be human? And if it must be killed to obtain said organs, how can it not have been a living human? Will anyone come to these babies’ defense — “their body, their choice”?
Have no doubt that Planned Parenthood will rally a strong defense in regards to this issue. Planned Parenthood is a well-liked staple in our culture of death, and the fact that it receives so many tax dollars annually is testament to its place in our society. Planned Parenthood will not back down, and neither should we. Follow this story. Spread this information. Don’t let people comfortably ignore the truth about Planned Parenthood.
And most of all, pray. Pray that this darkness will be exposed for what it is. Pray that the nation will wake up to the cries of vulnerable innocents being slaughtered by the thousands daily. An organization so taken by evil cannot be brought down without the help of God.
St. Benedict, pray for us. St. Michael, defend us. Our Lady of Victory, come to our aid.
