The Center for Medical Progress’ YouTube video featuring an undercover meeting with the director of Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, has stunned many today (July 14th, 20015). In the video The Center for Medical Progress dispatched two actors who posed as interested buyers of aborted fetus (baby) body parts. In the video, Nucatola makes very clear that Planned Parenthood is in such a business, and that it would be no problem for them (PP) to provide these buyers with whatever body parts these potential “buyers” wanted (including livers, hearts, and various other tissues and organs).
And of course, rightly so, this video has once again reminded everyone what we have learnt to live with ever since Roe V. Wade and the legalization of abortion. We know it is there (abortion); we know millions upon millions of babies are being mutilated and murdered every year through abortion, but it is as if, as if to cope, we have collectively attempted to not dwell on what appears to be an impossible evil to ever overcome (through legal maneuvering etc.). And so when confronted, once again, with this kind of reprehensible darkness that clouds our nation (among many other evils), we shudder in horror and disbelief. We call for the defunding of Planned Parenthood by our government, and act once again as if we never realized that the trafficking of human body parts and tissues hasn’t been an ongoing reality in the abortion industry.
It is this that I am trying to highlight in this post; this idea that we as evangelical Christians are somehow shocked in horrid disbelief. As if we never realized that such things took place, and now as a result of this video we ought to push for the defunding of Planned Parenthood! Are you kidding me?! Yes, I agree, Planned Parenthood ought to be defunded, and they ought to be thrown into jail, all of them, as mass murderers. Planned Parenthood’s history started with its founder Margaret Sanger, and her eugenic vision of sanitizing the world of all of the unlovely and unwanted. Sanger wrote, “The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” Planned Parenthood’s very genesis has been rooted in systemic evil and Darwinian social ethics (thus eugenics) from the very beginning; Sanger’s vision was to erase the world of the poor and weak among us (you know ‘survival of the fittest’). So it only makes sense that a century later that the organization that she founded has come full circle and devised the most heinous and calloused of ways of not only exterminating the weakest and most vulnerable among us (the unborn baby), but that they have also figured out to make a major profit off of it; not only by procuring Federal (tax) funded monies, but also, as this undercover video reveals, by way of selling fetuses and babies (their body parts, tissues, etc.) to the highest bidders.
Again, I simply wonder though why this is surprising to any evangelical Christian. We have all known that this has been the ugly reality (in regard to Planned Parenthood) for years and years. Yes, we might be being confronted once again with the repulsive reality that we would rather not dwell upon, but I guess I just don’t understand the shock and awe and apparent surprise of all of this. I guess the best thing that this video can do is once again reignite the drive and motivation in all of us who claim to be pro-life to give this reality its rightful attention once again! At the very most it ought to cause us to pray to God to have mercy on us, and most importantly upon these unborn babies who are being slaughtered and mutilated in holocaustic form right in front of our faces everyday!
