What America is seeing in the Planned Parenthood videos isn't sensationalism and it's not a Hollywood horror movie. These are real, American babies being murdered in the most gruesome way imaginable.
What do you do with the arms and legs of aborted babies who have been chopped up in their mother's womb?
First thing you do is lay all the body parts together to make sure you didn't leave anything inside the mother. At the end of the day, you put all the bloody arms, hands, legs, torsos and heads in a plastic bag and dispose of them. And you keep the more valuable organs – such as the liver, heart, and kidney – and sell them to companies who use them for fetal tissue research.
Welcome to Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion-provider in the world.
By now millions of Americans have watched some of the videos of what goes on inside Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. The videos (Video #5: Are 'intact fetal cadavers' born alive?) were produced and released to the public by The Center for Medical Progress. They show Planned Parenthood officials being secretly taped discussing how they extract body parts from unborn babies in order to sell them.
If you have a soul, the words and images on these the videos are too much to take without vomiting, crying or turning away. Personally, I watched video #5, and when the Planned Parenthood employee went to the freezer to get out one of the more intact babies – as if it were the "catch of the day" – I had to turn off my screen.
In 1973 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that aborting a human fetus was a right found in the Constitution, therefore declaring the practice legal across the country. The high court said that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion. Before that, the states regulated abortion. Since that time the culture war over the issue has been fought between people who believe in a woman's right to choose to abort her baby and those who believe the baby has a fundamental right to life.
Another big political aspect of this is that Planned Parenthood receives over $500 million a year from American taxpayers. Planned Parenthood supporters will say that those dollars are not used for abortion services but rather used for other parts of their business. For me, they can say whatever they want about the bookkeeping sleight-of-hand, but it doesn't matter. The fact is Planned Parenthood is killing unborn babies and they have no business getting any money from people who pay federal taxes and who obviously see this practice as immoral and barbaric.
President Obama and the Democratic Party support Planned Parenthood and have vowed to fight the Republicans who want tax dollars to stop going to Planned Parenthood. Obama and the Democrats don't care about the babies who are having their body parts laid out on the abortionist's table every day in our country. Again, watch the videos now available online, especially if you consider yourself pro-choice but have an open mind. What you see in these videos is not sensationalism. This is not a Hollywood horror movie. These are real, American babies being murdered in the most gruesome way imaginable and their body parts sold to the highest bidder.
One the main reasons the Republican Party has been supported so overwhelmingly by evangelicals and church-going Catholics over the last three decades is because it has been the pro-life party. We will find out this fall just how serious Republicans are about the right to life of the unborn. They will have an opportunity to take Planned Parenthood out of the federal budget and force Obama to make the case that American taxpayers must continue to fund Planned Parenthood. He will be forced to veto the budget, thereby shutting down the federal government.
Abortion is a grisly business and a great sin against God Almighty. My hope is that more and more Americans will wake up to the reality of what abortion really is. These videos have sounded the alarm.
