Planned Parenthood: A Great American Disgrace

Rebecca Hagelin · Apr. 5, 2017

One minute it’s a living, moving, perfectly formed little boy or girl inside its frightened mother, and the next minute it’s a dead specimen on a steel table being dissected like a frog.

Welcome to the world of Planned Parenthood and its special way of caring for women.

Planned Parenthood’s grisly business in trafficking “fresh” human organs is lucrative. It’s also subsidized by you and me. As The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) has documented through its extensive 30-month-long investigation into Planned Parenthood and its “Tissue Procurement Organization” partners like StemExpress, a single Planned Parenthood clinic can make a tidy quarter of a million dollars in one year through the sale of human baby body parts. Of course, the law says that tax dollars cannot be used to pay for abortions, and that the sale of baby parts is illegal. So I guess you can say that we are paying for the table the unsuspecting mom is lying on; or maybe the pan that her newly dead baby is put in; or perhaps the lab table on which the child is being sliced and diced. Oh, and while we are at it, let’s call the payments to Planned Parenthood from the body-part buyers “reimbursements” for expenses. Now, everything is fine. Right?

No, everything is not fine. Supporting Planned Parenthood and its barbaric practices is a great American disgrace and it’s time for it to end.

The CMP investigation is carefully and thoroughly documented through undercover video, hundreds of pages of documents, and eyewitness interviews. If you care to know the truth about just how evil Planned Parenthood is, you can view the videos and read the documents for yourself at CenterforMedicalProgress.org. That is, you can view some of the videos. The California Attorney General, who has received numerous campaign donations from California-based Planned Parenthood entities through the years, recently levied criminal charges against CMP’s David Daleiden and Sandra Merritt for recording various California participants in the grisly project without their permission. The AG’s strategy to protect his Planned Parenthood benefactors is to lock up the messengers — and their evidence. While these citizen journalists are awaiting trial, many of their videos are now under a “gag order” and cannot be seen, even by law enforcement officials. How convenient.

Daleiden and Merritt investigated claims that the FBI and Department of Justice refused to, and had it not been for their courageous efforts, America would still be in ignorant bliss about the world of the lovely and svelte Cecile Richards and her grotesque enterprise. As the president of Planned Parenthood, Ms. Richards is a frequent guest on television news where she is portrayed as a glorious defender of women’s health care, even while young women are being led by the thousands to the butcher chamber and their babies’ hearts, brains, eyes and other organs are harvested and sold.

The problem is, we now know what really goes on inside Planned Parenthood. Congress and the president also know the sordid and bloody truth. So the real question is: What will we do about it?

Thank God, last week Vice President Mike Pence cast the tie-breaking vote in the Senate on legislation that allows each state to make the decision to halt the flow of federal dollars to their home-based Planned Parenthoods. While state officials must hastily act to cut off the funds, so too must Congress on a national level. And, for God’s sake, federal and state investigations and prosecutions of Planned Parenthood must move speedily and on a massive scale. It’s time that Ms. Richards and her colleagues speak to us not from the glitz of a television studio but through prison bars.

This is stuff straight out of a horror movie. Or maybe a story you would expect to be playing out in a communist or socialist country. But it’s happening in real time, right now, in the land of the free and the home of the brave — and maybe in your own neighborhood.

Help end Planned Parenthood’s charade. Visit CenterforMedicalProgress.org and click on the “take action” link. Demand that Congress immediately hold hearings to thoroughly investigate Planned Parenthood and to stop using your tax dollars to subsidize its bloody business.
