A Century of Corporate Infanticide
Planned Parenthood's 100th anniversary is cause for mourning, not celebrating.
“A true measure of any society can be found in how it treats its most vulnerable members.” Mahatma Gandhi
The most vulnerable of any society are those whose faculties don’t permit independent function, such as the mentally and physically challenged and handicapped, the elderly who are frail of strength and mind, and children, both growing inside and outside the womb.
Ironically, Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion mill, celebrated its 100th “birthday” Sunday, Oct. 16. But it has so dishonored life and birth it should be scorned and condemned for its true role — a profitable organization devoted to the deaths of children so as to control population under the guise of health.
The 100 years of existence of these abortuaries, which perform more than 300,000 abortions annually, began with Margaret Sanger. She was an advocate not of family planning but of controlling “the human weeds” from “reckless breeders.” In her book, “Pivot of Civilization,” Sanger made no efforts to hide her prejudice in supporting methods to deal with some “human beings who should never have been born.”
Sanger was a devotee of eugenics, obviously deeming herself fit to live, while making the determination which humans were worthy of life or death. Sanger went so far as to proclaim, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” How empowering.
The evil of this woman’s heart certainly sprang forth to reveal contempt for those who weren’t on her approved list of worthy civilians. Sanger was brazen and consistent. She wrote that for the purpose of racial “purification,” couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. She wrote in the November 1921 edition of Birth Control Review that birth control was valuable for selection “to create a race of thoroughbreds.” Her blatant racism was captured in “Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right,” in which she laid out a plan to use “colored ministers” to convince blacks that delivering birth control to their communities was a good idea. “The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal,” she wrote. “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.”
How proud Margaret Sanger should be of the seven million babies whose lives have been “terminated” through the effective propaganda of Planned Parenthood. That organization has led the effort to define a baby human as nothing more than a “mass of tissue,” because it’s much easier to talk about removing it. They also contend that, at best, viability outside the womb should be a factor.
Careful. Viability outside the womb, if strictly applied, would allow the disposal of many of our most fragile seniors as well as the mentally ill and handicapped who depend upon the care of others for their very existence. Planned Parenthood’s logic has a dark and horrible conclusion.
Yet, Planned Parenthood has prettied up population control to empower women regarding their fertility and “reproductive health.” While dolled up with words, marketing slogans and hip campaigns, abortion is performed almost always merely to prevent unwanted birth, not to save or protect the life of the mother. According to the National Abortion Federation, reported victims of rape comprised 1% of those seeking abortions, while abortions performed to protect the life of the mother account for fewer than 1% of all terminations.
Abortion is not contraception. The authentic medical definition of contraception describes methods that prevent pregnancy by interfering with the normal process of ovulation, fertilization and implantation. Abortion is performed once fertilization and implantation have occurred and is, therefore, to halt the growth of the product of human reproduction — a child.
As more conservatives have been elected to state legislatures and governorships in recent years, they have enacted policies and laws to stop taxpayer-funded abortions and tighten the regulations on clinics. The unfortunate side-effect was that with the praiseworthy decline in the number of abortions performed, the revenue of corporate infanticide had to be replaced. These folks found a new moneymaker in “tissue” research.
In 2008, Planned Parenthood “partnered” with a few companies by providing body parts of aborted babies for “fees.” That practice ended in 2015 when the Center for Medical Progress released videos of the haggling of Planned Parenthood employees for brains, kidneys, hearts and other vital organs and tissues for sale. At one point, this disgusting organization had accumulated an inventory valued at $10 million in cells and parts for research harvested from aborted children.
Two of these “partners” have been recently charged for the illegal sale of these precious tissues. DV Biologics and DiVinci Biosciences will be prosecuted by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office in California for profiting from the sale of prenatal “heart, lungs, kidneys, brains, intestines, skeletal muscles and bones of the aborted fetus donations.”
As technology has provided 3-D images through ultrasounds, the lie of abortion is being exposed. With the horror of selling baby parts, the industry has been further laid bare for its true nature — opportunists who profit through deceit and death. A century of that is worth mourning and fighting, not celebrating.
