The two recently released videos that expose Planned Parenthood’s savage view of unborn babies have driven even the most liberal commentators into a choice of silence or moral outrage. As Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards apologized, not for the words of her senior director of medical research, Deborah Nucatola, but the “tone” of her words caught on tape, liberal commentator for USA Today Kirsten Powers writes, “This is stomach-turning stuff. But the problem here is not one of tone. It’s the crushing organ harvesting of fetuses that abortion-rights activists want us to believe have no more moral value than a fingernail. It’s the lie that these are not human beings worthy of protection. There is no nice way to talk about this.” Even former Obama staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”
By now, you have probably seen the undercover videos, recording Planned Parenthood leaders negotiating the sales of baby organs which would be recovered by the cruel crushing of the unborn babies’ bodies in their mothers’ wombs in a way that would preserve these organs. Richards complained about the “heavily edited video.” But the full, three-hour unedited video has gone viral. It only serves to confirm the horrific stance of these “pro-choice” leaders. Did anyone complain about the secretly recorded video that recorded Mitt Romney’s remarks about the 47% who would never vote for him because they were receiving federal funds?
Amazingly, some still stand with Planned Parenthood, including Washington Post columnist Petula Dvorak, whose column was headlined, “Planned Parenthood deserves to be supported, not attacked.” I agree with Powers, who responded, “It’s the fetuses who are under attack by Planned Parenthood.” The White House stands clearly and unapologetically behind Planned Parenthood. Spokesman Josh Earnest was asked if they might reconsider their support, at his daily briefing Tuesday. He responded with one word – “No.” Then he spent 12 minutes criticizing Donald Trump. The next day, he covered for Planned Parenthood again. The liberal media is attacking those who exposed the truth with their secretly recorded videos, while ignoring the fact that this practice by Planned Parenthood is patently immoral, savage, and, if anyone cares anymore, illegal.
So take your shots at the Center for Medical Progress for secretly recording Dr. Nucatola’s statement that her organization charges $30 to $100 for fetal “specimens.” But you won’t find medical ethicists who support the savage brutality against the most defenseless among us. The fact is, your life will be more protected if you illegally enter America after being deported several times and after committing numerous felonies, than if you are in the womb of a woman seeking “counseling” from Planned Parenthood. America offers hundreds of “sanctuary cities” for felons who illegally enter our country. But babies are offered no sanctuary from Planned Parenthood. Instead, they are “crushed” in the womb in such a savage way as to procure body parts to be sold for $30. That should disgust any humane person. Almost as shocking is the complicit support of the mainstream media, and now the outspoken support of the White House. Thank you, Kirsten Powers, for standing up for what is right.
