Dear Planned Parenthood Supporters:
I should probably be addressing this letter to abortion supporters as well because all of you have dipped your toes in the same bloody pool and basically anyone who is a proud supporter of Planned Parenthood has come to be one because of their stance on abortion.
At this point you’ve all seen the video…that filthy, vile, cringe-worthy video of one of your own explaining the economics of selling off parts of dead babies over appetizers and red wine. I know some of you have already dismissed is as “hysterical pro-life propaganda” and still others of you have simply not bothered to look at it at all.
The battle over the ethics of vacuuming a baby out of a mother’s womb will continue long after you and I go on to meet our maker and find out for sure if our Creator is okay with all that (my money’s on “NO” but both my cash and your excuses will be worthless by that point anyway). There will always be passionate arguments on both sides of the issue and it will always be a point of contention as most life and death issues eventually become. I don’t expect you to read this letter and suddenly abandon your pro-abortion stance. This debate involves deep passion and commitment from both perspectives. I don’t expect you to walk away from a deeply held belief from one letter.
However I do expect you to exhibit a tiny bit of rationale in the face of some pretty disturbing truths. Remember when you guys used to harp at us about the “science” of gestation and how we must use “science” to determine when a human is really a human? You begged us irrational pro-lifers to look at the facts and not our feelings and certainly not our religion! Isn’t it interesting how almost none of you are arguing for “science” in the abortion argument anymore? That’s because real science has caught up with our feelings and we can now peek into the womb nearly to the point of conception and see arms, feet, eyes, hearts…babies. It’s hard to deny that a 12-week old fetus sucking its thumb or clapping to a musical beat is anything but human.
So you’ve shifted your argument to how people feel and how babies can hurt a woman who isn’t ready to become a mother. Let me implore you to return for a moment to that cold, scientific consideration you once felt we religious folks lacked.
If you have the stones (and I know some of you don’t) watch that video. Watch this woman describe how they price “specimens”, which parts are most in demand and how Planned Parenthood abortion doctors will use ultrasounds to make sure they aren’t damaging organs that will be harvested in the process of the abortion.
Now replace the word “specimen” with “baby.”
Ask yourself why the doctors are so careful to keep the organs intact (apparently livers are in demand) when we’re talking about organs that belong to something that supposedly isn’t a human yet. Are we to believe these “specimens” aren’t human but their individual parts are human? How do you even get that to make sense in your mind?
Imagine for a brief moment that this is not a hidden-camera scandal video. Imagine this is a Hollywood movie. Our hero protagonist sits down to his first meeting with his new boss at his dream job making…medications, let’s say. His boss casually explains the rules of the workplace over a glass of wine, and then suddenly as she stuffs a forkful of salad into her mouth light-heartedly mentions that the main ingredient in their medications is made out of human remains.
SOYLENT GREEN IS PEOPLE!
That would be the point in the movie that you would gasp. You would be disgusted by that idea. The very idea of selling the dead without their consent would nauseate you.
Well, this isn’t a movie. It’s real life and in this case the dead aren’t people who lived full lives before their demise – they are babies who never even had a chance to say “Yes, I want to live.” This isn’t some textbook evil Hollywood capitalist trying to get over on the little guy, it’s an employee of a government-funded organization that legally harvests the organs of the dead and sells them for profit. The same tax-payer funded organization that has a president who makes $650,000 a year. If the lives of innocent babies don’t move you, that fat-ass salary should. Corporate greed, anyone?
WE ARE THE 99%!
If it were just this one thing then maybe – and that’s a HUGE MAYBE – you might be justified in dismissing some of the ruckus, but it’s not just this one thing. It’s a whole garbage-sundae and this is just the body bag on top. See, you’re the same person who tells everyone else that history is important, we have to understand history so it doesn’t repeat itself. Flags don’t kill people but the Confederate flag has a sordid history so we have to get rid of it. The history of that flag endorses hatred and bigotry in those that take it too seriously.
Well how’s this for some history? Margaret Sanger is the founder of Planned Parenthood, a eugenist and an evil racist. Some of her more inspiring quotes:
“We should hire three or four colored ministers, preferably with social-service backgrounds, and with engaging personalities. The most successful educational approach to the Negro is through a religious appeal. 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.”
“They are…human weeds, reckless breeders, spawning… human beings who never should have been born.”
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
That’s the history you support. I know that right now you’re reading and saying to yourself, “Oh, please. That was a long time ago. What was started has no bearing on what the organization is today.”
And yet, Planned Parenthood remains the number one abortion provider in the country and maintains an overwhelmingly disproportionate number of abortion clinics in exclusively minority communities – specifically the black community. Sanger thought the blacks needed to be culled and low and behold – Planned Parenthood is at the forefront of culling the future of black America. Maybe the secretary at the front desk doesn’t know a thing about who Margaret Sanger was but they’re still doing a bang-up job of fulfilling her mission, don’t ya think?
Do any of these things cause the slightest discomfort?
As I said earlier, I don’t expect you to change your position on abortion overnight…but can we all agree at the very least places that profit from the harvesting of dead bodies without previous consent of said “specimens” probably shouldn’t be receiving our tax dollars?
If this video cannot appeal to your compassion then for the love of God, let it appeal to your common sense.
