‘Infanticide for Profit’

In the wake of another episode of Planned Parenthood’s evil and twisted ways, here are a few more things to consider. Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards responded to the first video with an “apology” that spent a few seconds lamenting the “tone” of the abortionist and more than two minutes lauding the abortion mill’s supposed virtue and slamming opponents for objecting in any way. The second video opened with one of her claims: “I want to be really clear: The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true.” That’s especially powerful since the entire second video is about the organization profiting from “tissue donation.” As for the second video, Planned Parenthood continues to insist that the “heavily edited” videos contain nothing “to suggest any violation of the law or improper activity.”

The Weekly Standard’s Steve Hayes eviscerated Planned Parenthood and its defenders: “Let’s be clear what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about the extraction of infants, many of whom could live outside of the womb were this not done to them — the taking of their body parts and then selling them for profit. This is not morally ambiguous. This isn’t one of those discussions where there are two sides to the discussion. What we’re talking about is wrong. It’s morally reprehensible. I mean, I thought on the scale of things in the world that are morally reprehensible, infanticide is just about the worst. This is worse! It’s infanticide for profit!”

Politicians who receive donations from Planned Parenthood should be made to answer for its practices, as should the numerous businesses that donate to the organization. Republicans in Congress are working to strip more than $500 million in federal funding from Planned Parenthood — as well they should. Even aside from constitutional questions, such a morally bankrupt organization should have no claim to Americans’ tax dollars.
