Just a few minutes ago, the Center for Medical Progress released their latest undercover video of Planned Parenthood’s revolting practices – this despite a federal judge (one who is an Obama appointee and who raised $200,000 for the president’s campaign, natch) issued a temporary restraining order on Friday to stop the video’s release. And the desperate attempt to stop it is understandable. In this video, the discussion of the “diversification of the revenue stream” by selling “specimens” and how much the Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast research department “contributes…to the bottom line of our organization” throws into question even more deeply Cecile Richards’ claim that Planned Parenthood “does not profit” from “tissue donation.”
And then of course, there is the discussion of “altering the process” so that they are able to “obtain intact fetal cadavers” which will then be “split” into “different shipments” – all “just a matter of line items.” Later on, they look at a study that wants 120 “samples”.
And then they go to look at “fresh specimens” to see their quality and “intactness.” I can’t recommend watching this part of the video unless you have the stomach for it. And maybe not even then. I moved beyond nausea into horror, and then just deep sadness. As they picked through a tray of eviscerated human remains, identifying each organ and part, I found that I had to stop the video when I saw them pull out a perfect little hand with the tweezers, a leg clearly visible in the bloody mess behind it. To be honest, I broke down for a moment and just started to cry. How could they? How could they?
Planned Parenthood must be destroyed. There’s simply no other option. If there is any justice in this world, I will live to see the days when there is the abortion-related equivalent of the Nuremberg Trials. And the people in this video, and so many others, will be lined up and brought before the court. This is the precisely the kind of butchery I saw memorialized when I walked through Auschwitz. It’s the kind of feeling I had when I walked the grounds outside the ovens at Birkenau, and was told that the white grit I saw in the dirt I was walking on was ground up human bone.
And as the Santayana quote that was prominently featured at the entrance to those famous death camps so solemnly warned us, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.”
