The Liberal Harvest Of The Killing Fields

Planned Parenthood, much to its chagrin, has been thrust into the media spotlight because of an undercover video exposing its abortion mill practices — showing leadership admitting to having actively participated in the harvesting, selling and transport of human fetal body parts and tissue.

The graphic detail in which the Planned Parenthood doctor Deborah Nucatola describes the partial birth abortion dismemberment of a baby in order to save the organs for sale is as disturbing and disgusting as it is barbaric.

Trafficking in human body parts, human fetal tissue is a felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Yet that is exactly what Planned Parenthood appears to have done according to Dr. Nucatola on the video, the fruit of which came by way of a nearly three-year-long undercover investigation by the Center for Medical Progress.

Planned Parenthood, known as “America’s Abortion Clinic” by the Pro-Life community, is harvesting, in Nazi like fashion, the organs of babies created in God’s image.  Babies developed enough to have hearts, livers, lungs and “lower extremities” for removal and sale and the gruesome details in which other portions of the tiny anatomy that must be crushed and torn apart in order to not only ensure death but to leave intact and undamaged those parts for human consumption.  This is medical cannibalism.  This is evil.

endabortionDr. Nucatola went so far as to tell the undercover investigators, there are ways around the law. “The federal abortion ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation.” One only needs to be aware of the most recent string of Supreme Court decisions to understand where she’s coming from. The left has escaped the folly of their ideology by redefining words and plain language to mean whatever they choose it to mean.  Dr. Nucatola also said. “So, if I say on day one that I don’t intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn’t matter.” In other words, she has a clear conscience and will lie to herself and others in order to circumvent the law.  Without a moral conscience the law is worthless and only greater powers can stop it.

On a recent trip to Washington DC I was deeply moved viewing row upon row of headstones — as far as the eye could see — at Arlington National Cemetery. Graves sites of those who died in the cause of freedom.  It also reminded me of the inhumanity of mankind towards each other — that these heroes had to be called upon and were so willing to go and fight and give their last full breath, so that others might be able to live to pursue their happiness free from fear and the conflicts of war.

Men and women fight evil because evil exists.  It exists, not in an intangible darkness but in the form of other men and women who believe so differently, so radically, that they will literally crush another persons arms, legs, neck, shoulders and skull with no sense of shame or remorse, pulling flesh from bone with no more concern or second thought than if they were peeling a banana.  And they do this to the tiniest most vulnerable and most innocent.  And so many who could change it simply turn and look the other way not because they don’t care but because it is too difficult to bear.

planned parenthood scandalToday in America we have an industry whose purpose is to not only kill tiny babies — but to harvests their tiny organs under the authority and protection of the federal government and uses your tax dollars to accomplish that evil task.

Martin Luther King Jr. said: “Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Consensus asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?”

America has been moving from facts and moral conscience to feelings and selfishness for a long, long time; it’s the accomplishment of our education system and entertainment industries.  We see the results in the liberal attitudes of younger generations with regard to virtue, sex, parenthood, family, child rearing, gender and marriage.  On the issue of abortion, however, an odd trend has developed where the young are moving away from cowardice, consensus and selfishness towards compassion and conscience, towards scientific and medical facts — towards being strongly pro life. Where the left sees a problem, they see a baby endowed with the same right to life that they enjoy.

The facts are that only 27 percent of Millennials identify themselves as strictly “pro-choice” and nearly double that number (51%) say that abortion services should not be covered by health insurance, according to a 2015 study by Public Religion Research Institute.  This is really terrific news.  Other polls have shown that the younger generations are moving towards the Pro-Life position at an equally rapid pace.  As science and medicine proves the viability of the baby to earlier points in the gestation process, the more we’ll see that this is not a “choice” — it’s a “child.”  It’s a cause that we are winning!

So what can we do to continue the trend?  Stoke the fires.  Setting fires in the minds of others is our job.  Keep this topic alive by calling all your state and congressional representatives offices and see what they are doing about it.  Call for investigations.  Write letters to the editor, call talk radio, bring up the topic with friends and family.  No reasonable person can defend the murder of a baby and the tearing apart of its limbs ending its life but saving its organs — like parts off an old car — that are useful and profitable.

If these babies were dogs or cats the outrage would be coast-to-coast headlines for a week, a month.  Let’s keep this story alive and continue to change hearts and minds so we can further protect those defenseless hearts that are being harvested by monsters who look like us but certainly don’t think, believe or care like us.
