In the past couple of months, investigative journalists have released video evidence of Planned Parenthood's illegal sales of the body parts of aborted babies. Planned Parenthood and it's supporters have been crying foul and claiming that the videos are "heavily edited" and "inaccurate." The fact is, the group that has released the edited versions to the internet have made the full videos available to media outlets and no evidence of deception has been discovered in the edited versions. What kind of an organization is Planned Parenthood? Planned Parenthood(PP) describes itself this way on it's website: "For nearly 100 years, Planned Parenthood has promoted a commonsense approach to women's health and well being, based on respect for each individual's right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning." This statement is a blatant lie and easily exposed as such. The fact is that PP is an evil organization founded by an evil woman whose express and stated purpose was to eradicate the less desirable of society which included controlling the population of blacks to the point of bringing them to extinction. Today, PP is a used body parts mill making millions from the slaughter of innocents.
PP SAYS ONE THING BUT OBVIOUSLY MEANS ANOTHER
PP condemns itself by it's own statement. "...100 years... promoted... women's health... based on respect for each individual's rights..." To see if this is true or not, one only needs to look to the founder of PP and her original intent. In 1916, Eugenics proponent, Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood. Her goal was not based on respect for individual rights, but the polar opposite of this idea. Sanger was a racist and a white supremacist whose ideas were in line with Adolph Hitler and his desire to create a master race. Today, Sanger is heralded as a great pioneer of women's rights, but in reality, she was a hate filled bigot obsessed with eradicating the black population from the United States. These seem like bold and inflammatory statements, but are easily verified by Sanger's own statements.
MARGARET SANGER WAS A WHITE SUPREMACIST
In 1926, Sanger spoke to a female auxiliary of the KU Klux Klan. In The Autobiography of Margaret Sanger the author brags about the reception she received at the event and how it garnered her a dozen more invitations to speak at other such events. Her remarks are not known today, but it would not take a great imagination to figure out what her topic must have been at a KKK rally, especially with the reception she received. We do know, however, what she said in 1932: "Birth control must lead to a better race." Sanger was a blatant eugenicist and in case there is any doubt about which race Ms. Sanger was referencing here, we have her comments made in 1939: "We do not want word to get out that we want to exterminate the Negro population." It is more than apparent that PP's origins had nothing to do with "respect for individual rights..."
PP DOES NOT SUPPORT "INFORMED ... DECISIONS"
It would seem reasonable for any person who is considering a medical procedure to be given as much information about that procedure to make as informed a choice as possible. Laws have been legislated forcing abortion providers to provide information to potential patients, information that would be routine in any other medical environment. Informed Consent laws generally require an abortion provider to explain the procedure that is about to be performed and the risks involved. Also, part of most informed consent laws is making a sonogram of the unborn child available to the patient. Not requiring the sonogram, but making it available. PP opposes such laws to the point of having, in the case of Planned Parenthood vs Casey, gone all the way to the Supreme Court, in 1992. It would appear that PP does not want anything to get in the way of maximizing the amount of abortions it performs. Any attempt that may persuade a potential client against having an abortion is ardently opposed by PP and it's minions of lawyers. What possible benefit could PP have in encouraging abortion rather than attempting to spare women the trauma of such an invasive procedure?
If a stated purpose of PP is to provide "informed... decisions" while spending millions of dollars attempting to prohibit informed decisions in the case of abortion, what could PP's true motivations be? This is a terribly over used cliche, but follow the money. Abortion is big business. Until recently, the public had no idea how much money was generated by PP through abortion, but thanks to recently released videos, we can get a pretty good idea how profitable the harvesting of body parts of dead babies is. A group called The Center for Medical Progress has released a series of videos documenting PP's baby parts for profits program. PP's harvesting and sales of baby parts is so sophisticated that they take orders and perform abortion procedures that are most conducive to harvesting requested parts without damaging said parts. click here to access website for CMP
EXTREMELY DISTURBING VIDEOS
If you want to view the videos exposing PP, you can click on the link above. I was going to post the 8th video that has been released but the content was so graphic, I became physically sick and did not feel comfortable posting the video in this forum. The video showed footage of an abortion provider picking through the remains of an hours old abortion in which distinct limbs with hands and feet are clearly visible. I was horrified. It is one thing to know this goes on, but to actually see this is a bit traumatic. I cannot fathom how these clinic workers can become so desensitized to such horror.
The videos mostly show PP representatives discussing the different parts they make available and the costs of harvesting these parts. The representatives graphically describe the procedures used to acquire certain parts without damage. Some of the videos also reveal that PP is performing partial birth abortions in order to preserve harvested parts. This horrific procedure is nothing short of murder. In the partial birth procedure, a baby is pulled through the birth canal feet first, leaving only the head inside the mother. A sharp device is inserted into the base of the baby's skull and the brain is sucked out, collapsing the skull, at which point the baby is pulled the rest of the way out of the mother. If you support this procedure, I defy you to view a video of it on YouTube, and let me know what you think.
I have decided to link to the third video that was released but with a warning, this video is far less disturbing than the 8th video but still is horrific as it shows a baby that has supposedly been aborted,but is obviously still alive because it is still moving :
This video contains graphic content after 5:56 mark - not for children
ARE WE BEGGING FOR GOD'S JUDGMENT?
In the book of Ezekiel, we find the nation of Israel in it's final stages before being devastated by Babylon. God, speaking through the prophet Ezekiel, warns Israel that impending disaster is coming due to national sin. One of the sins Israel was committing was child sacrifice. Is abortion a sacrifice to the god of Convenience or, in the case of PP, the god of Mammon? Ezekiel 22:12-14 could easily be an indictment of PP - In you they take bribes to shed blood; you take interest and profit and make gain of your neighbors by extortion; but me you have forgotten, declares the Lord GOD.
"Behold, I strike my hand at the dishonest gain that you have made, and at the blood that has been in your midst.
Can your courage endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with you? I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.
Is this verse only applicable to PP? I do not believe this passage pertains to PP at all, but the nation that is most complicit in PP's fiendish activities. The United States of America, one nation under God, in Whom we supposedly trust(according to our currency) is using tax dollars to fund, not only PP, but United Nations abortion projects, as well. Are we responsible for the actions of our government? Can we expect judgment because of the sinful actions and policies of our elected officials? As a Representative Republic, we elect official to represent us in the running of the country. These officials are acting on our behalf, as a nation, we are complicit in PP's actions and are in danger of falling under the judgment of God Almighty. click here to read Is America Heading For Destruction By Representation?
America is on the front lines of the abortion battle, unfortunately, our nation is fighting for the wrong team...
SAFE, LEGAL AND RARE... REALLY MR. PRESIDENT?
In 2010, President Obama gave a speech in which he repeated the same lie Bill Clinton told in 1996, "abortion should be safe, legal and rare."(emphasis added) President Obama supports funding PP and, as a U.S. senator got a 100% rating from PP on his voting record concerning abortion rights. This president has signed more legislation and made more executive orders for funding abortion and giving unfettered access to late term abortion than any president in history. click here to access Obama's record on abortion
Leading Democratic presidential contender, Hilary Clinton, declared her support for PP, even after the videos exposing PP as a clearinghouse for baby body parts became public. Democrats in congress filibustered attempts to defund PP, after the videos were made public! Our elected officials support PP and thus support the ordering, harvesting and selling of body parts of aborted babies. Abortion clinics run by PP are slaughterhouses for research labs and are run by human monsters who are enriching themselves by encouraging abortions for profit. Our government officials are obviously on board and America is defying the author of life.
WHAT SHOULD BE THE CHURCH'S RESPONSE
First of all, I want to be clear, if you have had an abortion, God loves you and desires a relationship with you. The church needs to make this message clear. Abortion is considered a sin, but all sins are forgiven at the cross. Romans 8:1-2 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death. The church cannot just sit in judgment of abortion and those who choose abortion without offering an alternative. We, as believers need to be at the forefront of education and provision for those in need. Many good organizations already exist, but these organizations need our support through giving and volunteering. In Florida, our family was involved with the Hope Pregnancy Center(now Hope Women's Center) click here to access website by hosting a table at their annual fund raising banquette. In Knoxville, where I currently live, The Hope Resource Center is at the forefront of pro-life support. click here for Hope Resource Center website These places are looking for men and women of Christ to step up and assist in offering hurting women alternatives to abortion. We can also support legislation that restricts abortion in our states and legislation that makes adoption by quality families easier and more affordable.
Tennessee recently passed a law that allows future laws to be passed governing abortion and truly protecting the health and well being of women who choose abortion. This was a positive step.
Educating women about what they are carrying in their womb is the greatest deterrent to abortion and the quickest way to destroy the evil influence Planned Parenthood has on society. This is why PP is so opposed to informed consent laws, these laws reduce abortion by giving women a "truly commonsense approach to women's health and well being, based on respect for each individual's right to make informed, independent decisions about health, sex, and family planning." PP counsels that a fetus is nothing more than an nonviable tissue mass. Education reveals that a fetus is a baby with hands, feet and a face, a beating heart and the ability to suck it's thumb. This information is often a game changer for a woman who is considering an abortion as a form of birth control.
Planned Parenthood was started with evil intent, to eradicate Black people and others that Margaret Sanger and her ilk determined to be society's undesirables. Margaret Sanger was a monster, pure and simple. Today, PP is in the baby parts business and will do all it can to keep the money train rolling.
The church's response must go beyond outrage, we have to let our voices be heard, we have to let or elected representatives know we are opposed to government funding of baby harvesting, we must support those who are on the front lines such as the organizations I have linked above. We must also be ready to provide for babies who are born that would have been otherwise killed in the womb. We have to be willing to adopt, to help single mom's and to promote abstinence in our churches.
Our greatest weapon is prayer, "for we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but powers and principalities..." Violence against those whom we oppose on this issue is never an option for those who follow Christ. We are called to love.
Please pray and see what God would have you do in regards to this issue, it really is a matter of life and death. If nothing else, pray that Planned Parenthood is defunded and those who flout the law for profit are brought to justice.
