Planned Parenthood has long presented themselves to the public as a legitimate health care provider, with society’s and women’s best interests in mind. Pro-life Christians have known the real story all along, that this is no ordinary health provider, but the nation’s largest abortion provider (responsible for more than 300,000 abortions per year).
You see, the first rule of medicine is “do no harm,” but instead, Planned Parenthood has made a living off of aborting babies in the name of “reproductive rights” and “choice,” leaving one dead and one wounded in the abortion equation, with a culture of death in its wake.
Until now, they almost continued to get away it. A new shocking video has emerged, an undercover video conversation (viewable at lifenews.com) that “shows Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, explaining how Planned Parenthood sells the parts of aborted unborn children. The video shows her describing how the heads of these babies come at the highest price.”
When confronted about this selling so-called fetal tissue, their CEO, Cecile Roberts, defended it as “legal” and criticized the people who made the undercover video as a way to distract from the issue at hand.
She later offered a weak apology for the “tone” of Nucatola, who was shown in the video talking casually over dinner about the practice of selling the organs of aborted unborn children, like hearts, lungs and livers.
Commenting on the video, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission president Russell Moore said, “Is it not clear that these are not health-care providers but pirates and grave-robbers of those who have no graves?”
What makes matters worse, this grizzly practice is coming from an organization that receives approximately a half-billion dollars annually of taxpayer funds.
A second undercover video, also from the Center for Medical Progress, surfaced on July 21, showing a similar expose on the sale of fetal tissue, that is to say baby parts. This video goes even further by making it clear the motives of Planned Parenthood also include money-making.
Now, Planned Parenthood will try to make you think taxpayer dollars go to support their more politically-correct services, such as health screens. But don’t let them fool you.
Money in any organization is fungible, meaning it goes toward various parts of the whole and cannot be fully separated. Think of it like this: to say “those tax dollars don’t pay for abortion or the harvesting and selling these ‘fetal parts’ but only pay for other things Planned Parenthood does” is like saying, “your dollars didn’t go to pay for that specific part of the machine gun used in a violent act.”
No, it is your tax dollars keeping Planned Parenthood afloat, and it is time they lose all of it. For any alleged good they do, those services to the public can be handled by more reputable groups, localities and entities.
The United States Congress will reportedly investigate them for this practice, which is only right. Planned Parenthood, which has been exposed, should have their funding withdrawn and face the fullest possible investigation.
Through these undercover videos, we saw Planned Parenthood without their mask on. For the sake of the countless children killed and mutilated for financial gain, let’s not forget what we saw. And let’s not rest until every last tax dollar is withdrawn from Planned Parenthood, so we can be sure they do not get any money from taxpayers to do this bloody work, not one red cent.
