Viewers react to video showing Planned Parenthood accepting donations to abort black babies

What does Planned Parenthood do when it is offered money to eliminate the number of African-Americans through abortion? Live Action’s latest investigative release probes the abortion giant and its readiness to bankroll racism inside facility walls.

Live Action’s “Planned Parenthood and Race” video reveals how the abortion giant is willing to target black lives in order to make a profit. The investigative video comes at the heels of Planned Parenthood’s condemnation of the Ferguson tragedy, and of white officers who allegedly targeted and killed unarmed African-Americans. Although Planned Parenthood claims “Black lives matter,” its documented readiness to perpetuate racism in turn for cash proves quite the contrary.

Abortionist: “when I start to see little hands come out, it bothers me”

Abortionist Lawrence Scott was interviewed in 1994 by a pro-choice author. He said:

When I start to see little hands come out, it bothers me, even though I know the fetus is not completely developed and cannot feel any pain. It just bothers me. In the early 70s, when I first started doing abortions, we didn’t have ultrasound. I was doing an abortion on a woman whom I thought was 16 weeks pregnant, but during the procedure, I discovered that she was in fact 22-23 weeks pregnant. That shocked me….I totally adore and love children, so when I see these little body parts, I start seeing kids, and it bothers me.

Black lives are eradicated thanks to the lie that abortion’s an answer to poverty

In honor of Black History Month, I want to share a significant story from my personal history.  Before I was born, my mother, overwhelmed by pressures, went to a hospital to abort me. Although I know her story of walking out on the doctor,  I just learned the location of the scheduled abortion. I had an appointment to die at Mount Sinai Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut.

In the late 1980’s, Mount Sinai struggled with financial problems which  led to an affiliation and a merger with St. Francis Hospital. This merging of a Jewish and a Catholic Hospital was the first of its kind in the United States. Since St. Francis is a Catholic hospital with pro-life standards, the merger put an immediate end to Mount Sinai’s abortion services in 1990.

The end of abortion services at Mount Sinai Hospital infuriated some of the board members, also leading to the resignations of two trustees.

Harvard students were pro-choice on abortion but not on putting up posters

In a recent article on Live Action, I wrote about how a pro-abortion booklet aimed at college students and other activists told them to prevent people from seeing images of preborn and aborted babies. The booklet said:

Another set of questions involves the opposition. Has your audience seen anti-abortion propaganda? Are you debating a Right-to-Lifer? Is the opposition bringing slides or pictures? Try to insist that they not be allowed to … Find out if your opposition is bringing audio-visuals. Try to insist that you will only speak if they do not …

Now I have stumbled across an example of some pro-choice college students  who took that advice to heart. What I’m about to relate happened in 2006, but because it so perfectly illustrates the point of the other article, I’m going to discuss it now.

Heartbroken father shares the pain of being helpless while two of his children were aborted

While the abortion debate usually centers around women, it’s important to remember that in many situations, there’s another person who is affected.

Some fathers are heartbroken, helpless to prevent the murder of their children, powerless to protect them. A father can beg and plead with the mother of his preborn babies to allow them to live, but ultimately, according to the most common interpretation of the law, there’s nothing he can do.

[Note: If you are a father who wants to know how to try to stop an abortion, see this article.]

How would any mother feel if she was forced to watch, helpless, as the father of her children methodically killed them? It’s a heavy burden for these fathers to carry. And one father has written a heartbreaking account of the pain he endures now, as he has to live with the daily knowledge that his wife chose to kill two of their preborn babies.

Blog post: I aborted my boy because he is a “monster” and an “enemy”

InjusticeStories.com printed a story by Lana in January of 2015: “I Aborted My Baby – Because it Was a Boy.” Lana, who claims to be a feminist, writes that she “WAS ready to have this child.”

When she first discovered she was pregnant, she willingly called the baby a “child.” And yet, when she discovered the child was a boy, he became an “it,” a “monster,” and one of her “enemies.”

South Korean pastor’s ‘drop box’ saves hundreds of unwanted, but ‘perfect’ lives

Most people associate the words “drop box,” with the online file-sharing tool that allows users to share data across computers and smartphones from anywhere, instantly. But for Jong-rak Lee, a pastor from Seoul, South Korea, the term has a very different meaning. For Lee, a drop box is a way to save hundreds of unwanted infants from being abandoned on the crowded streets of Seoul each year.

Courts in Canada approve doctor assisted suicide

The day has come and the door has now been opened for doctor assisted suicide to become a reality in Canada. In a unanimous decision the Canadian Supreme Court ruled to overturn the nations ban on doctor assisted suicide. This decision reverses the one made in the 1993 Rodriquez case in which the court ruled the states obligation  to “protect the vulnerable” outweighed the rights of the individual to self determination.

In the present case, Carter v. Canada the Canadian Supreme court changed it’s opinion, declaring the law denies people the right “to make decisions concerning their bodily integrity and medical care” and leaves them “to endure intolerable suffering”.

As NPR reports the courts ruling has several provisions. Patients who desire to end their life must be competent adults who give their consent. Those seeking doctor assisted suicide must be suffering from a “grievous and irremediable medical condition that causes enduring suffering that is intolerable.” In addition, “physicians cannot be compelled to assist those wanting to die.”

Pro-life groups join MRC in denouncing media blackout of March for Life

Nineteen leading pro-life organizations joined the Media Research Center to chastise the networks for their near blackout of the 2015 March for Life. The annual March for Life, which attracted over 200,000 participants from around the country, marked the 42nd anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision that legalized abortion.

The only network that offered coverage was CBS, which dedicated 15 seconds to the March in the context of highlighting moderate Republican opposition to the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. Meanwhile, NBC, ABC, and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo completely ignored the March. The networks did, however, find time to cover “DeflateGate,” sidecar dogs in America, and Prince Andrew’s sex scandal. Media Research Center founder and president Brent Bozell reacted:

What makes you so special?

What makes human beings so special? What gives us value? When we assert that it is worse to kill a human than to kill a dolphin, are we guilty of racism, or more precisely, of speciesism? On what rational ground can we assert that Homo sapiens should be considered more valuable than any other animal?

In a debate between Yale professor Shelly Kagan (left) and Christian philosopher William Lane Craig (right), Kagan attempted an answer:

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous letter holds message of justice for the unborn

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”
— Martin Luther King, Jr.

It was April 16, 1963 — 10 years before legalized abortion in the United States — when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. penned the letter that could have been written on behalf of the unborn, as well as the African-American.

The powerful “Letter from Birmingham Jail” still has a message for us. What is astounding now, in 2015 — as we honor King, and we, likewise, grieve approximately 57 million babies who have died in the past 42 years — is that King, who was vocal then, would doubtlessly be just as vocal now. Ironically, he would not have to change much of his letter, for what we did to African-Americans, we now do to the unborn. And the most tragic irony of all is that African-American babies are aborted at a rate five times greater than white babies.
