Planned Parenthood Gets Busted
Is anyone surprised that a taxpayer supported (to the tune of 500 million annually) abortion business has been violating Federal Law by selling aborted baby parts. We have been observing the steady decay of American civilization and culture for more than half a century. It seems that what was once a bastion of morality has slipped down the slide of depravity so far as to be almost unrecognizable.
This practice was exposed by the anti-abortion group The Center for Medical Progress. In their documentary, they posed as a company looking to purchase fetal cadaver parts. Several recordings of different Planned Parenthood doctors were caught discussing how this procedure can be done to minimize damage to the fetus, thereby optimizing potential profits.
Since this became public, Planned Parenthood has denied any wrong doing in this matter. In fact, progressives in the media have rallied behind the Planned Parenthood organization with articles that attempt to dismiss what can only be characterized as both illegal and grotesque. Federal law bans the practice of partial birth abortions.
But the practitioners of abortion have gotten around the ban on partial birth abortion with a clever ruse. Rather than killing the full or late term baby as it is partially outside of the birth canal, they began using a heart medication Digoxin that is widely used in the treatment of various heart conditions such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter and congestive heart failure. But abortion practitioners admitted years ago in various interviews that they are misusing the drug in off-label use to do the second-trimester abortions. When this medicine is delivered into the baby’s heart, it causes death. Now the abortionists could claim they did not kill the child during delivery (partial birth abortion), but that the baby was already dead when the abortion took place.
Did I say this was clever? I think it would be more accurately described as diabolical.
How did the land of the free and the home of the brave become so corrupt? When our society calls things that are evil, good we open ourselves up to God’s righteous judgment.
The Creator of the universe claims to be a Father to the fatherless, Ps. 68:5. He offers adoption to everyone, regardless of ethnicity, age or societal standing via the Gospel. The Lord is truly an “equal opportunity Savior.” But His judgments against these practices are clear. The same God that judged Sodom, Gomorrah and the other cities of the plain for their sexual immorality is not going to overlook the depravity of this country. The unborn are defenseless; they have no voice concerning what happens to them. Their future is often cut short, because men and women want to be able to avoid the consequences of their actions.
Nearly 2,765 years ago a prophet of Israel named Isaiah told his people:
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness;
Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20
Today, a large segment of our society is calling this evil practice of murdering children in the womb a “good” thing. You can read how many liberal and progressive pundits are blaming the Center for Medical Progress for exposing just how wicked these purveyors of premature death really can be. The success of Planned Parenthood is not rooted in the services they provide concerning women’s reproductive health. Sadly, their success has been assured, in part, because they have been able to hide what they are doing behind misrepresentation of what they really are and what they really do. They are not pro-choice when their ability to choose can end the life of another human being.
I am glad that we have people who are willing to expose the truth behind Planned Parenthood’s facade. When you raise the curtain of darkness and expose Planned Parenthood’s evil practices in the light of day, they are seen for what they really are. They are not a woman’s health delivery organization; they are the purveyors of child sacrifice in the 21st century. They are the worshippers of a modern-day Molech (Moloch) causing their children to pass through an abortionist’s fire to be sacrificed under the guise of a medical procedure.
