In recent months, a series of undercover videos has exposed Planned Parenthood’s practice of harvesting fetal organs. In defense of this practice, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards argued:
This is actually laudable that women and their families choose to make fetal tissue donations in order to potentially save lives of other folks.
Note that an action which would ordinarily be considered barbaric (i.e. dismembering a fetus and selling her pieces) has been transformed by Richards into an act of mercy (i.e. making “donations” to “save lives”). This is nothing new. The same tactic was used by those who sought to justify the institution of slavery and the crimes of the Nazi regime.
A new report on abortion stats published by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) indicates that abortions have decreased in the last year, a trend that has continued for the past 25 years. Because abortion reporting requirements vary from state to state, the numbers do not represent all abortions performed in the United States.
The University of Minnesota (UMN) has admitted to using the parts of aborted babies in research after first denying it, according to reports by Alpha News. Using the Freedom of Information Act, Alpha News obtained purchase orders clearing showing that from 2008-2014 UMN had purchased fetal pancreas, lung, liver and thymus from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR), one of the fetal organ brokers featured in the undercover videos produced by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP). Capitol Lien in St. Paul is the registered agent for ABR in Minnesota.
In a horrifying tragedy in the Bronx, a woman murdered a pregnant woman, then carved the baby from the mother’s womb. The story made headlines that sounded like a soap opera: Deranged woman who said she was pregnant kills another woman and steals her baby to pass off as her own.
Alexander Sanger, the grandson of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, is dedicated to the pro-abortion movement. In 2004 he wrote a book called Beyond Choice: Reproductive Freedom in the 21st Century. In it, he makes his support for abortion very clear. But there are several passages from the book that seem to concede pro-life points.
Despite video evidence of Planned Parenthood’s baby harvesting operation and other atrocities, the abortion giant believes those who oppose them are the extremists. To protect the millions of dollars pouring into Planned Parenthood’s coffers every year, the organization is rolling out a campaign to battle anyone who opposes their agenda in the 2016 elections. The effort is so important to them that they plan to spend $20 million to help defeat their political opponents.
In a new video, Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards decided to put “extremist” pro-life 2016 political candidates on notice that if they are against “reproductive rights” like abortion and against funding her organization with taxpayer monies, then they aren’t going to be supported by Planned Parenthood.
A Texas Policy Evaluation Project (TxPEP) study released on Tuesday asserted that nearly a quarter million women in the state may have induced abortions themselves because of “onerous” restrictions that lawmakers have put on reproductive choice.
A quote from the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecologydescribes the emotional impact abortion has on nurses and highlights the plight of nurses who are pro-life. The quote is from the early days of legalized abortion but is still relevant. The facts of fetal development have not changed; abortion workers still have to learn to cope with seeing the features of aborted babies, hands, feet, etc.
Following the release of videos that show Planned Parenthood embroiled in a baby body parts scandal, more fraudulent activity by the abortion giant has been uncovered in Colorado.
Public records, requested and released from Colorado State University, show that Planned Parenthood has been paid by CSU to supply aborted baby body parts. CSU has also purchased nearly $100,000 in body parts from Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) since 2010. A lawsuit recently filed in a Colorado district court alleges that these payments are fraudulent and unconstitutional.
