The Lion Sleeps Tonight



Dale Ahlquist 
Crisis Magazine

Planned Parenthood has been caught selling baby parts and the headlines and talk show hosts are screaming with outrage. But not about that. About a guy who shot a lion in Zimbabwe.

It turns out that the guy who shot the lion is a dentist. His office is just down the road from my home in the otherwise uneventful suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota. He is now a marked man, a wanted criminal. His business is in shambles, his patients all scattered to other dental clinics across the Twin Cities.

Okay, it’s true that we all like to see dentists suffer, and that is perhaps the latent motive behind the worldwide blitz against this tooth-puller who paid $50,000 to some African guides for the privilege of bow-hunting the king of beasts. Open wider, please. This is going to hurt.

But then there’s that whole thing about hunting. Lots of people don’t like hunting for various reasons. I admit I don’t like hunting. But it’s not a matter of principle, it’s a matter of pleasure. Or lack of it. I tend to agree with Dr. Samuel Johnson who said that God gave us so few pleasures, it’s strange that hunting should be one of them. However, I understand that going back across the centuries, there is a tradition well-honored that involves the thrill of the chase, the bagging of the prize, the meat, the mount, the glassy-eyed memory of man versus beast. One of our most popular presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, posed proudly with the big game he shot in Africa. It contributed to his fearless and rugged image, a man with a zest for adventure. Nobody complained.

Eyewitness to Planned Parenthood Atrocities Testifies!



Father Frank Pavone
Priests for Life


It’s far worse than you can ever imagine.  There’s a reason I call abortion America’s holocaust.

What’s going on inside Planned Parenthood abortion mills on a daily basis is nothing less than what Nazi “doctors” did to prisoners in concentration camps.

The videos coming out of the Center for Medical Progress prove it. I know these pro-life heroes personally and speak with them on an almost daily basis. Their shocking videos have captured Planned Parenthood executives and abortionists callously talking about how they go to great lengths to harvest intact baby body parts so they can sell the tissue to the highest bidder:
“…I’m going to crush below, I’m going to crush above (the thorax)…”
“…using a ‘less crunchy’ method to get more whole specimens…”
“…most people want intact hearts these days…”
“…always as many intact livers as possible…”
“…we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver,…
so I’m not going to crush that part…”
“and often, the last step, you can evacuate (harvest) the intact calvarium (head)…”

In the latest video you see an abortionist gleefully looking at the body parts of a mutilated baby and talking about how much money his abortion mill will get from the sale of them.

Dr. Savita Ginde of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains in Denver is seen saying:

“We don't want to do just a flat-fee (per baby) of like, $200. A per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

A moment later she’s actually laughing as she gloats about the amount of money she can get for selling them.

It’s gruesome and will turn your stomach.

You can click on this link to watch the latest video yourself.

One brave woman – Holly O’Donnell – has come forward to speak out publicly and give her eyewitness account of what she was told to do with the bodies of aborted babies. Her testimony is both riveting and compelling. For example:

“I was asked to procure certain tissues. Brain, heart, liver, pancreas, lungs, pretty much anything. It’s basically a huge trafficking of fetal tissue” 
“The director of the clinic said ‘Planned Parenthood needs compensation.’ The harder and the more valuable the tissue, the more money you get. If you can somehow procure a brain or a heart you’re going to get more money.” 
“I remember my first day. It was early in the morning. I walked in and met the staff. I looked in the corner and saw a tray with pie dishes in it. Then a worker came in and emptied a container of red fluid into a strainer over the sink. My trainer took me over and she took tweezers and started picking body parts out of the strainer. ‘This is a head. This is a lung. This is a leg. You have to identify these. Can you do that?’ So I took a pair of tweezers, picked up a leg and said, ‘This is a leg.’ The moment I picked it up I felt pain shoot up through my body and I blacked out.”

What has happened to our nation? What is happening to us as a people? No decent person can turn a blind eye to the evil taking place inside Planned Parenthood’s killing centers.

And Priests for Life is calling on all Americans and all politicians to shut down Planned Parenthood and end its Nazi-like crimes against humanity.

You have a vital role to play in this important work.

For years Priests for Life and other pro-life groups have been shouting for all the world to hear that Planned Parenthood was heavily involved in these macabre practices.

But lawmakers turned a deaf ear to our cries because they didn’t want to believe that they were giving your tax dollars to an organization that has so little regard for humanity that it would perform atrocities on the human body that would make Dr. Mengele and other Nazi “doctors” proud.

     
Consider those words from Dr. Nucatola in the first video. In order to collect the best tissue, the child is gripped in vice-like pincers “above or below the thorax” … depending on what tissue or organ the body-snatchers want.

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”


She went on to brag about how Planned Parenthood abortionists force the baby into the breech position – feet first out of the womb – so that they can more easily and more precisely use their razor-sharp scalpels to extract the body parts they want without damaging them.

There’s no concern whatsoever for the baby.
  • No anesthesia.
  • No mercy.
  • No compassion.
To show you what I’m talking about, here’s an illustration showing the extent a Planned Parenthood abortionist goes to in order to keep the baby’s organs and tissue intact:



If that gruesome illustration looks familiar, that’s because it’s a diagram of how to do a so-called “partial birth abortion” … WHICH IS NOT MERELY ILLEGAL but, as I just mentioned …

… it is a DEPLORABLE CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!

But these butchers talk calmly about their atrocities. And they have the gall to do so while sipping wine and eating lunch.

Wait! There’s more, if you can believe it.

After the undercover video of Deborah Nucatola admitting that Planned Parenthood abortion mills routinely mercilessly cut up the bodies of baby’s in order to harvest their organs and tissue went viral, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards looked America in the eye and said:

“The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in  any way from tissue donation is not true.”
That’s a direct quote. But guess what? Cecile Richards LIED when she said that. A second Center for Medical Progress undercover video proves it!

This time they captured Dr. Mary Gatter on camera haggling over how much she would get paid to provide organs and tissue from babies killed in abortions to a medical research firm. Gatter currently serves as President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council.

Toward the end of the luncheon meeting, Gatter talks about using an abortion technique that’s not as violent as the normal suction method. She speaks about an IPAS abortion, which is a reference to a company that makes “manual vacuum aspirators” abortionists can use in order to get intact internal organs and tissue. In her own words, Gatter called this a …“LESS CRUNCHY” abortion.

When it came to getting her blood money, Gatter’s flippant comments and cold-blooded calculations are horrifying. And after doing some haggling back-and-forth on how much she’ll be paid for harvesting hearts, lungs, livers, kidneys, brains and other baby body parts, Gatter smugly declares:
“[The] money has to be big enough that it makes it worthwhile for me. . . [S]o let me just figure out what others are getting and if this is in the ballpark, that’s fine. If it’s still low, we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”
Those words put the lie to Richards’ statements that Planned Parenthood does not profit from the sale of body parts.

The grisly truth is that Planned Parenthood abortionists use painful, illegal and immoral procedures to harvest intact tissue that they sell to the highest bidder.

Planned Parenthood’s horrific atrocity must end!
Not tomorrow.
Not next week.
Not when Congress comes back from its summer recess.
Not next year.
NOW!!!
       

To make that happen Priests for Life – working in concert with the entire pro-life movement – is moving heaven and earth to rally decent, fair-minded Americans to rise up and tell Congress to CUT ALL FUNDING TO Planned Parenthood! Every penny!

But the only way that will happen is if pro-life heroes like you join forces and make your voices heard in Washington, D.C. The best way for you to do that today is to …



ELECTRONICALLY SIGN the  “DEMAND LETTER to Congress.”

Tell Congress it has a moral obligation to cut off all funding of Planned Parenthood.

Right now is the perfect moment to act and that for two reasons:

  • The spotlight now shining on Planned Parenthood is making all those self-proclaimed “pro-life” lawmakers we helped elect to Congress uncomfortable. They know that in light of the atrocities Planned Parenthood is committing, they have to do something.
  • Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) and 80 original cosponsors have introduced H.R. 3134, theDefund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015. If passed, it would place an immediate moratorium on all federal funding of Planned Parenthood for the span of one year while Congress conducts a full investigation into the organization’s activities.

That’s our first demand:

No tax dollars to Planned Parenthood until Congress has completed a thorough and exhaustive investigation into the selling of baby body parts for profit.

In line with that, we have THREE MORE DEMANDS for Congress. They are:

1.To hold public hearings regarding Planned Parenthood's harvesting and selling baby body parts. 
2.That the Senate act to protect the babies Planned Parenthood is cutting up for their body parts by passing the “Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”

3.That the House introduce and pass the “Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Abortion Act.”

Then we have a further demand:
4.That candidates for the Presidency make it clear where they stand on this issue: Is Planned Parenthood's activity acceptable or not?

That’s on the national scale.

We are also working with states and communities all across the country to launch their own investigations into illegal activities perpetrated by Planned Parenthood.

We know for a fact that in addition to harvesting baby body parts, Planned Parenthood clinics have been covering up crimes of sexual child abuse for years.

In light of all this, it’s time to demand state and local school boards to BAR Planned Parenthood FROM OUR SCHOOLS!

But I don’t want to get into too much detail about these activities just now.

Sign the “DEMAND LETTER to CONGRESS” and help CUT ALL FUNDING of Planned Parenthood! Period.

Don’t put this off till tomorrow! If ever there was a moment to get Congress to act and CUT FUNDING to Planned Parenthood, now is that moment!

So please act right now. And to have an even bigger impact …

Again, though, we’ve got to do this NOW … while the eyes of America are focused on Congress and waiting to see how it will act in response to the atrocities Planned Parenthood is committing every day in its abortion mills.

We may never have an opportunity like this again in our lifetimes.  We must take full advantage of it.

AUL Reacts to Newest Planned Parenthood Video; Announces Unborn Infants Dignity Act

Americans United for Life Says Fourth Shocking Planned Parenthood Video Underscores Issues in Letter Sent to Congress


AUL Announces the ‘Unborn Infants Dignity Act,’ model legislation that would require a “humane handling of the broken bodies of unborn infants.”

“Legislators at the federal level should immediately freeze tax dollars from going to the discredited, abortion-industry leader during this investigation,” said Dr. Yoest. “And this is also a time for us to consider how to show respect to unborn children who do not survive to take their first breath.”
From Kristi Hamrick
American United for Life


WASHINGTON, D.C. (07-30-15) – “Repercussions from public and political reaction to the shocking spectacle of Planned Parenthood abortionists picking over the bodies of their unborn victims to sell their tiny human organs while collecting more than half-a-billion dollars from taxpayers will be felt at the federal and state levels,” predicted Americans United for Life President & CEO Dr. Charmaine Yoest. “Today’s video from the Center for Medical Progress illustrates AUL’s concerns, detailed last week in a letter to Congress, especially in light of the profiteering by abortion industry employees.  (Click here to read more.)  This new video shows that Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards is less than truthful in the face of evidence that abortionists working for her organization are making specific plans to profit from harvesting infant hearts, lungs, livers and limbs.

“This new Planned Parenthood video also includes an admission from Dr. Savita Ginde that she performs three to seven second trimester D&E abortions a day, and that these infants are sometimes delivered ‘intact,’” noted Yoest. “The context is related to the greater marketability of these intact infants, but this begs the question of whether some of these babies are alive at the time.”

Ginde notes that less than 10% of their aborted babies are intact. “That’s not what we go for,” says Ginde. Many babies in the second trimester have reached medical viability and could survive outside the womb.

This is a particular concern because the state of Colorado does not have a Born-Alive Infant Protection law. At the invitation of Colorado legislators, Dr. Yoest testified in support of such a law in March. However, after official opposition from Planned Parenthood of Colorado, the Public Health Care and Human Services Committee voted the legislation down.

Also noteworthy, Ginde says that she has to talk to “Deb,” who is Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood, the doctor featured in the first-released video. This comment highlights Nucatola's knowledge and involvement with Planned Parenthood's abortion profiteering and the systemic corruption of the organization. Congressman Fred Upton, the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee has asked Dr. Nucatola to brief the Committee and respond to questions about Planned Parenthood’s involvement in the sale of organs from aborted infants. Planned Parenthood has responded that they will not make Dr. Nucatola available prior to the July 31st deadline.

“We’ve now seen three different Planned Parenthood doctors involved in abortion profiteering. Cecile Richards and her allies in Congress and the Obama Administration continue to deny, dodge and distract in order to avoid addressing the brutal reality these videos have revealed. The American people are demanding a response,” said Yoest. “The nation's number one abortion federation has received billions of tax dollars over the years, and now is the time to pass the No Taxpayer Funding of Abortion Act.

“This is also a time for us to begin showing respect to unborn children who do not survive to take their first breath. AUL has developed the ‘Unborn Infants Dignity Act,’ model legislation that would require a humane handling of the bodies of unborn infants. We will be working to pass this bill in all fifty states.”

AUG 22: #PPSellsBabyParts National Day of Protest



From Eric Scheidler,
Executive Director
Pro-Life Action League

Today a fourth undercover video was released showing Planned Parenthood doctors callously discussing how to dismember aborted babies and sell their body parts for profit.

Even pro-choice people are horrified by what they've been seeing in these videos -- Planned Parenthood's doctors pricing out fetal hearts and livers, and JOKING about it!

This has become a HUGE national story, and Planned Parenthood is in full damage-control mode. They know their massive $500 million taxpayer subsidy is threatened like never before!

Now it's time to ramp up the pressure on Planned Parenthood by making this a LOCAL issue, and putting the focus on the Planned Parenthood facilities where this barbarism is taking place.

That's why, together with my friends Mark Harrington (Created Equal) and Monica Miller (Citizens  or Pro-Life Society) I'm calling for a National Day of Protest on August 22.

But we need YOUR help to make this protest day a success.

Local leaders are needed to organize #PPSellsBabyParts protests at their local Planned Parenthood facilities. Are you being called to host one of these protests on August 22?  If so, sign on here

At that site, you'll be able to see what protests are already scheduled, get resources for organizing a protest, find talking points on this scandal, and more.

We may never have a better opportunity to defund Planned Parenthood and expose the truth about this cruel, corrupt organization. Please pray for the success of this endeavor, and help out in any way you can.

Planned Parenthood Bullies News Organizations into Suppressing Body Parts Scandal



By Cheryl Sullenger
Operation Rescue


Washington, DC - Reports are beginning to surface that Planned Parenthood is attempting to use their influence to bully news organization into suppressing the scandal involving their selling of aborted baby body parts for profit.

So far, three videos released by theCenter for Medical Policy reveal incriminating evidence of Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal sale of fetal remains for profit and the use of the outlawed Partial Birth Abortion method to ensure the harvesting of marketable organs.

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richard as responded with denials of any wrong-doing, but the videos continue to draw unwelcome scrutiny to her now-beleaguered abortion organization. Now it appears Planned Parenthood is resorting to desperate means to tamp down the scandal.

Yesterday, TruthRevolt.org published a story that included an e-mail reportedly from Jen Aulwes, Communications Director for Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, sent to North Dakota Health and Political reporters and producers on July 27, 2015.

Bucks County Pro-Life Coalition Holds Annual Pro-Life Prayer Vigil & Mass



It’s that time of the year again! Every summer in Bucks County, a very important Mass is celebrated for our innocent preborn babies. The Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Good Council Church, Second Street Pike, Southampton, PA on Friday July 31st at 7:00 pm.

Following Mass, we will all gather for a prayer vigil in front of the Planned Parenthood located at 610 Louis Drive in Warminster, PA.

Please make every effort to attend this night of prayer and reparation, and bring your family, friends, and as many fellow parishioners as possible. Spread the word!

Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane. He said to His disciples, “Stay here while I go over there and pray.” Then he said to them, “My heart is nearly broken with sorrow. Remain here and stay awake with me.” Matthew 26:36-39


A #PLANNEDPARENTHOOD ICE CREAM SOCIAL??? ABSOLUTELY




By Reverend Katherine Marple
KeepLifeLegal


Planned Parenthood is a ‘wonderful organization’? I would say DEFINITELY NOT for the unborn whose little bodies are up for sale. Even some of PP’s contributors are running like little ghouls from the wrath of consumers while others are actually trying to profit from it, you know, much like Richards does. An ice cream shop in Oregon is doing exactly that, profiting off of Planned Parenthood’s very recent scandal.

Seriously, the flavor in ‘honor’ of Planned Parenthood at What’s the Scoop in Oregon is called…wait for it…’Taste of Victory’. Interestingly, this is after the first video depicting Cecile Richards for what she is: A Ghoul paid with BLOOD MONEY, and now with aborted baby organs and tissue.

Baby Parts Trafficking Scandal Widens with Release of Graphic Video



Mark Harrington, National Director
Created Equal
Columbus, OH - July 28, 2015 – Today, the Center for Medical Progress released a third video exposing Planned Parenthood's (PP) involvement in selling aborted baby parts. The difference between this video and all the others is it shows PP harvesting baby parts in preparation for sale. Watch the NEW video below:

 

In a preemptive strike, PP sent a letter to a Congressional subcommittee warning of the existence of the graphic video.

"We believe that on at least one occasion a representative from Biomax was shown a highly sensitive area in a clinic where tissue is processed after abortion procedures. While this work is standard and essential during any abortion procedure, any filming in such an area would be an extremely serious invasion of our patients' privacy and dignity."
Read entire letter HERE.

The biggest threat to PP in their 99 years of existence was initiated by graphic descriptions of abortion, therefore the debate over whether "graphic images" are effective needs to be put to rest once and for all.

For years, Created Equal has been the premiere organization exposing abortion victims to the public using photography and videos. We are pleased that the American people are outraged over the recent revelations of selling aborted baby parts. However, videos showing the harvesting of aborted babies should be no more shocking than videos showing them being killed." – Mark Harrington, National Director, Created Equal.

In a few days will be announcing a national day of protest at Planned Parenthood (PP) facilities all across America. Stay tuned for details.

If you would like to make a donation to Created Equal to help them with their efforts to expose Planned Parenthood,  please use this link.  


Planned Parenthood Uses Manual Vacuum Aspirators to Harvest Organs

PRI Blew the Whistle on the use of MVAs years ago



By Jonathan Abbamonte
Population Research Institute

A second video alleging Planned Parenthood’s gruesome selling of fetal body parts surfaced last week. And once again we find a senior executive of the organization, Dr. Mary Gatter, willing to put women’s lives at risk in order to make more money for the organization and for themselves.

As Gatter explains, “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an Ipas [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen.”

“Intact specimens”, you see, are worth more money. And Planned Parenthood gets them by using a device that regular readers of our PRI Review are all too familiar with: a manual vacuum aspirator.

Manual vacuum aspirators are murderous machines used to abort babies between three and fourteen weeks gestation. They are large, unsophisticated syringes operated by hand that work by suctioning the fetus from its mother’s womb. The baby’s delicate body is crushed and sliced as it is aspirated through a long cannula. After the abortion procedure, the baby parts are emptied into a bowl of water or vinegar and inspected to insure that all pieces are there and accounted for. One must wonder how a “doctor” can can justify abortion as he or she inspects baby parts floating in a pool of vinegar.

Manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) uses less suction than electronic vacuum aspiration (VA), perfect for preserving more organs intact for harvesting. It’s for this reason Gatter refers to MVA in the video as a “less crunchy technique.”

Manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) devices are used particularly in developing countries because they can be used without electricity. Since MVA devices require little training to operate, they are often used by non-physician abortion providers. Their small price tag and portability allow them to be widely distributed in remote locales, often in areas with poor sanitation and poor healthcare.

PRI has long documented the use of MVAs in developing regions. Unsterilized reusable MVAs have likely contributed to the spread of AIDS in Africa and STIs worldwide. The painful MVA procedure is often done without anesthesia such as in the Marie Stopes clinic we documented in Kenya. MVA devices have been reported to be used up to sixteen weeks gestation under the guise of “menstrual regulation” and “post-abortive care,” the abortion advocate’s code words for first trimester abortion in countries where abortion is illegal or largely restricted.

Planned Parenthood would stand to benefit financially from switching from VAs to MVAs. Electronic vacuum aspiration equipment is far more expensive than MVA devices. Some researchers argue MVAs can be done in the doctor’s office, saving the cost of having to invest in maintaining expensive operating rooms. Alisa Goldberg, MD concludes her study comparing MVA and VA procedures by saying as much, “Whereas purchasing an electric vacuum machine requires a large initial investment, the manual aspiration equipment is inexpensive...These factors, together with the simplicity of use…could increase the number of physicians who offer abortion to their patients in an office setting.”

MVA devices are not subject to FDA approval. PRI years ago tried to have the FDA pull the MVA abortion devices off the market but the FDA would not budge. In fact, they would not even subject MVAs to the same safety standards required of all other medical devices on the market. The FDA claims the devices do not require a pre-market review because they were available prior to May 28, 1976. New iterations of MVA devices are not subject to review as long as they do not deviate too far from their original design. Even so, according to the FDA, “manufacturers are primarily responsible for determining whether changes that are made to their device require the submission of” the proper forms.

While the FDA has refused to review the device for safety, a number of adverse reports have been filed with the federal regulatory organization including a report of uterine perforation and even death.

The lead manufacturer of MVA devices, Ipas, is not a pharmaceutical or medical device company but rather an international abortion advocacy organization. Ipas declares on its own website that it is dedicated to expanding “comprehensive abortion care.” The abortion activist organization is also actively involved in “work[ing] with nations’ ministries of health to interpret laws governing abortion in the broadest terms possible and to write standards and guidelines for abortion care accordingly to ensure access for as many women as possible.” In other words, the MVA device manufacturer is actively involved in pressuring independent nations into loosening restrictions on abortion and in finding loopholes in the law to increase access to abortion.

Ipas also advocates for non-physician procured abortions. MVA abortions procured by mid-level practitioners have higher failure rates and complication rates than MVAs procured by doctors.

PRI blew the whistle years ago on Ipas’s deceptive practice of distributing miscarriage-inducing misoprostol to women in South American countries where elective abortion is illegal. When women report to their doctors, hemorrhaging from the drug, the physician completes the abortion procedure under the guise of treatment for a spontaneous miscarriage.

Ipas claims to have distributed over 800,000 reusable manual vacuum aspirator devices worldwide. Ipas asserts that this is enough to commit 20 million abortions.

As one of Ipas’s leading donors, Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) stands behind Ipas’s mission to promote abortion. In fact, Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the United States accounting for about one-third of all clinical abortions.

During its fiscal year 2013-2014, Planned Parenthood committed 327,653 abortions, roughly the equivalent of the population of St. Louis, Missouri. At this figure, Planned Parenthood aborts children at a rate of 37 every hour. PPFA’s parent organization, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), aborts over 1 million children every year worldwide.

PPFA receives approximately $500 million every year in federal and state grants and reimbursements. Half a billion tax dollars are funding the largest abortion provider in America every year.

Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of Planned Parenthood’s selling of fetal body parts. A recent Rasmussen poll indicates that only 25 percent of likely voters find the practice permissible.

Planned Parenthood’s abortion business is out of touch with public sentiment. The most recent Gallup poll on late term abortion indicates that 64 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be illegal in the second trimester and 80 percent believe it should be illegal in the third trimester. Many Planned Parenthood clinics provide abortions after the first trimester.

Last Tuesday, Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) introduced the Defund Planned Parenthood Act of 2015 which strips all federal funding to Planned Parenthood. The bill has already garnered 137 cosponsors. Sen. James Lankford (R-OK) has since introduced a similar bill in the Senate.

Americans should not be forced to subsidize an organization that sells fetal body parts for profit and procures late term abortions. An abortion giant like Planned Parenthood does not need our taxpayer dollars.

Dr. Gatter can be seen at the end of the video bartering for maximum profit while settling on a price that doesn’t look suspicious. “Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark,” Gatter says, “if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”

Troy Newman Responds to Cecile Richards' Vituperative Attacks



Operation Rescue
Wichita, KS - On Sunday, Cecile Richards, CEO of Planned Parenthood appeared on ABC News where she was interviewed by George Stephanopoulos.

Rather than answering the questions Mr. Stephanopoulos asked, Richards attempted to deflect by making false statements against those behind the videos that were recently released by the Center for Medical Progress.

While Richards did not mention any names, she obviously was referring to Troy Newman, who is one of three members of the CMP Board of Directors.

Richards said:
The folks behind this, in fact, are part of the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement that has been behind the bombing of clinics, the murder of doctors in their homes and in their churches, and that's what actually needs to be looked at.
Troy Newman, who also serves as President of Operation Rescue issues the following response:
The evidence is clear that Planned Parenthood is selling aborted baby body parts for fees that exceed their actual costs and is modifying abortion procedures in order to produce organs that can be sold all in clear violation of State and Federal laws.
Therefore, it is no wonder that she would deflect with fallacious attacks in order to divert attention away from Planned Parenthood's own appalling behavior.
 
As for the videos being "highly doctored" or "out of context" Richards repeatedly ignores the fact that full, uncut videos of the entire conversations with Planned Parenthood abortionists have been available for public inspection and only support the allegations that Planned Parenthood is profiting from the sale of aborted baby organs and tissue.
Newman is considering legal action against Richards for her slanderous and libelous accusations.

"Richard's outright lies, misrepresentations and vituperative attacks do not change the truth that Planned Parenthood has been caught with their bloody hand in the cookie jar," said Newman.


URGENT ACTION REQUEST TO CHALLENGE BANK OF AMERICA


Note: This is something we can all do no matter where we live as Bank of America is located throughout the USA.

from John Pisciotta, Director
Pro-Life Waco


Our Hometown Pro-Life Action group can bring a divorce between BOA and PP by midweek with 200+ phone calls. I made mine this morning.

The phone number for BOA Charitable Giving is 800-218-9946. Choose option #1 from the menu. Tell them that there is a huge PP controversy. If BOA does not announce that they will not donate to PP in the future, this would be a big mistake. You can mention that Coke, Ford, Xerox, American Cancer Society have already made this public divorce.

I told the phone person that there would be public demonstrations in Waco at BOA if this split does not happen SOON. That was not an idle threat. Hometown Pro-Life Action Group on Facebook was created for THIS HOUR.

Call now! You can make more than one call, from different phone numbers. Don’t keep calling from the same phone number. I was told that they are well aware of the PP scandal. When BOA folds, we will move on to the next company. We need to bring intense pressure on one or two companies at a time. Share this message to your friends and other groups. We are the pro-life infantry with great influence if we work together.

Greed Has Always Driven the Abortion Industry



by Anne Hendershott
Crisis Magazine 

For more than a century, abortion has created tremendous wealth for providers in the United States. That continues today as yet another shocking video has been released showing a top Planned Parenthood official discussing the sale of body parts of unborn children. And, although this news does not seem to disturb many on the pro-choice side, there was a time when most believed that ending the life of the unborn child was “so egregious an offense against nature” that it deserved the harshest penalties. It was an era when even the New York Times found the practice so abhorrent that their editorial staff responded to the 1878 death of Madame Restell, an infamous abortionist, with the statement that her passing was “a fitting end to an odious career.”

Madame Restell’s death occurred during a time when she held sway over New York City’s abortion industry—owning a network of abortion parlors throughout the city that stretched from her primary facility in a house on Chambers Street all the way across the River to Hoboken. She was joined in New York City’s burgeoning abortion business by dozens of other abortionists who were luridly described in New York’s National Police Gazette as “fiends who have made a business of professional murder and who have reaped the bloody harvest in quenching the immortal spark in thousands of the unborn.”

The practice of abortion has always been lucrative, and Restell was just the first to parlay the provision of abortion services into a personal fortune of more than a million dollars and a lavish Fifth Avenue brownstone described in the tabloids of the day as the “Mansion Built on Baby Skulls.” She shared the abortion profession with her husband, Charles Lohman, an ex-printer who took the name Mauriceau and advertised himself as a “doctor,” advocating early abortion with “potions and powders” as the “safest” alternative. Lohman specialized in creating abortifacients, which he sold for exorbitant prices. In the extensively researched Abortion Rites: A Social History of Abortion in America, author Marvin Olasky writes that “Mauriceau was a brazen Barnum with an audacious sales technique.”

Carson: Hillary's 'Awe' of Sanger a 'Ticking Bomb'



by Bob Unruh
WND


President Barack Obama’s advocacy for abortion has been unparalleled by any American president in history – he’s on record, while he was a state senator, of even opposing instructing doctors to try to save an infant who survives an abortion procedure.

But the “awe” possible Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has for the woman who is credited with launching Planned Parenthood is nothing less than a “ticking time bomb,” according to surgeon and GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson.

Planned Parenthood has been in the headlines over the last two weeks because of undercover videos that revealed two executives discussing the prices for the body parts of unborn babies.

One of those executives even said that while prices didn’t really matter much, “I want a Lamborghini.”

So the issue arose recently for 2016 presidential candidate Ben Carson, who was being interviewed on a Des Moines, Iowa, radio show.

According to a report at Truth Revolt, Carson was asked by a WHO radio host to comment on an Obama speech from a short time ago when he said, “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.”

“You wonder if he actually knows the history of Planned Parenthood and Margaret Sanger, who was trying to eliminate black people,” Carson said. “That was the whole purpose of it.”

“Abortion Free” is the manual for removing abortions from America, one community at a time.

He also recalled Hillary Clinton’s appearance from 2009 before a Planned Parenthood audience.

“I admire Margaret Sanger enormously, her courage, her tenacity, her vision,” Clinton said. “I am really in awe of her.”

“I am delighted to have her saying that on tape because if I am a nominee and we are in the race, believe me, that quotation that she just said will come back and it will be in a context that people can understand. She has done us a great favor right there… That is a ticking time bomb and of course, her whole relationship with Saul Alinsky,” Carson said.

Evangelical Left Leaders Jim Wallis and Others Respond to Planned Parenthood Videos




by Jeffery Walton
Christian Post


Evangelical Left figures have begun responding to an unfolding scandal involving Planned Parenthood and the alleged sale of organs from aborted children for profit. The authors and columnists join officials from the Southern Baptist Convention, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and others in expressing concern about the allegations.

Controversy erupted last week when an anti-abortion organization, the California-based Center for Medical Progress (CMP), released an undercover video showing Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola discussing the sale of organs from aborted fetuses. A second video released this week shows Dr. Mary Gatter, president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors' Council, negotiating payment for the sale of baby body parts. Both videos have gone viral, with over 2.5 million views of the first, and the hashtag #DefundPP trending on Twitter. CMP has indicated that the videos are merely the first of a series of recorded conversations exposing alleged wrongdoing by Planned Parenthood and its affiliates.

"We confess to being at a complete loss of what to say in the face of humanity's brokenness," wrote Sojourners President Jim Wallis and Sojourners Web Editor Sandi Villarreal July 23 on the web site of the progressive Christian magazine. "Beyond the ethical questions of how an organization receives payment for tissue or the debates around the potential benefits of the patients' donations of fetal tissue, the videos are an in-your-face reminder of our culture's blatant disrespect for life."

Gov. Wolf Appoints Member of PA Planned Parenthood Board as His New Chief of Staff



By Micaiah Bilger, Education Director
Pennsylvania Pro-Life Federation


As Planned Parenthood comes under fire nationally for harvesting aborted babies’ organs, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf today appears to have appointed a board member of the abortion giant as his chief of staff.

This part of her biography is not in the official state press release, perhaps conveniently so. Nationally, Planned Parenthood faces two federal investigations into whether the abortion chain is profiting off the sale of aborted babies’ tissue and changing the abortion technique for the purpose of harvesting intact organs, both of which are illegal. Watch the undercover videos that led to the investigations here.

According to a biography posted on the website for Mack Sumner Communications, Mary Isenhour, Wolf’s new top advisor, serves on the board of Planned Parenthood of Pennsylvania.

Coca-Cola, Ford, Xerox Detest Being Listed as Planned Parenthood Sponsors in Light of Baby Parts Selling Scandal



by Samuel Smith
Christian Post


Three major American corporations have told the nation's largest abortion provider that they no longer want to be listed as corporate sponsors after two recent viral videos purport to show representatives of Planned Parenthood discussing the sale of baby body parts.

Officials from Coca-Cola, Ford Motor Co. and Xerox have told The Daily Signal, a news site founded by the conservative Heritage Foundation, that they have asked the abortion giant to remove their companies' names from the abortion provider's list of corporate donors.

The move comes after the Daily Signal posted the names of Planned Parenthood's 41 corporate sponsors — a list that is no longer available on the Planned Parenthood website — following the controversy surrounding the recently released undercover videos by Center for Medical Progress.

Although pro-choice advocates say the video footage produced by CMP, which is run by longtime pro-life activist David Daleiden, was highly edited to make the organization look bad, that did not prevent these three organizations from claiming that Planned Parenthood was misleading the public by including them on its list of sponsors.

Call for Participation in an Urgent Pro-life Rally in Waco or a City Near You on Tuesday July 28

  


John Pisciotta, Director 
Pro-Life Waco

WACO, TEXAS IS IN as one of over 50 cities responding to the national call for rallies on July 28 to demand an end to Planned Parenthood desecration of the unborn with organ harvesting AND for the total cessation of taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

Will 200, 300, or more Christians stand together in public next Tuesday July 28 in opposition to the callous atrocities we read and hear about at Planned Parenthood? I seek your participation in the Women Betrayed Rally in Waco—or in another city closer to you. Rallies are also planned for Houston, San Antonio, Austin and Fort Worth. The killing of babies in the womb and harvesting and marketing of their organs must stop.

The rally happens at 9-10 a.m. Tuesday July 28 on the 5th Street side of the McLennan County Courthouse. I hope you will be present for possibly the most important event in the history of pro-life outreach in Waco.

I realize I.m not giving you much time to plan your schedule. Video revelations about Planned Parenthood began just two weeks ago. This created a firestorm of concern and controversy. Just last week, Students for Life in America issued the call for national rallies on the date of July 28. At this time of greater awareness of the moral crisis in America, it is urgent for more Christians to reach out in public witness.

Pro-Life Waco and Righteous Remnant has rushed to put together a fine program of speakers that will include:
Rev. Joe Geleney, St Mary’s Catholic Church
Rev. John Guzaldo, St. Louis Catholic Church
Rev. Ramiro Peña, Christ the King Baptist Church
John Pisciotta, Pro-Life Waco
Jessica Weatherby, Righteous Remnant
Molly White, Texas State Representative from Belton
Christian public witness is vital as a counterpoint to the silence in the press about the desecration of the bodies of precious little ones. A new video, more damning than the first, was released on Tuesday the 21st. I hoped for a substantial news article in the Waco Tribune-Heraldon Wednesday. The video did not receive a single word. Instead, there was a story about teenagers’ increased use of the abortifacient morning-after pill.

I am a little frustrated. However, I know God will act for good as we step forward in Christian discipleship to defend the defenseless that Jesus loves so dearly.

#WomenBetrayed Rally Comes to the Delaware Valley



From the Pro-Life Union of Greater Philadelphia:
Following the release of the undercover videos showing horrific revelations regarding Planned Parenthood and the sale of aborted baby body parts, the pro-life community throughout the country is responding through public witness.

Already, several states have called for investigations, and some have even defunded Planned Parenthood from taxpayer dollars, but not Pennsylvania. It is time to defund Planned Parenthood and investigate the abortion giant.

Most importantly, we want women to know the truth about Planned Parenthood and abortion. We want women to know that there are options and that they and their unborn children matter!
Below is information for several places in the Delaware Valley where you can participate in this event.  

In center city Philadelphia:



For those who are unable to travel to center city, there will also be a rally at the Planned Parenthood in Warminster, PA.
     


 From Marie Tasy, New Jersey Right to Life: 
Every year, Planned Parenthood obsessed, NJ pro-abortion legislators try to reinstate millions of taxpayer dollars back in our state budget. Thanks to Governor Christie's vetoes, NJ taxpayers have not been funding the abortion giant through our state tax dollars.

Already, several states have called for investigations into this grisly body parts scheme, but more than half a billion dollars are still going to Planned Parenthood every year from our federal tax dollars and legislators here in NJ will not stop trying to fund the abortion giant.

We need to bring the power of the grassroots to Planned Parenthood. We need to stand up and show that we are sick of being forced to donate to Planned Parenthood through our tax dollars. If there is a chance that the abortion giant will be defunded from our tax dollars or that there be a proper governmental investigation into the activities of this organization, prayer and witness will need to be increased.
 
We are participating in the nationwide “Women Betrayed” rallies here in Trenton. These rallies are happening in dozens of cities across the country, all at the same time. And we need YOU to join us.
 For those who live in and around the Trenton area: 



The “Women Betrayed” rallies will be calling for three things:
  1. For an immediate investigation into the practices of Planned Parenthood by all state governments
  2. For all state governments and the federal government to immediately end taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood
  3. For all 2016 presidential candidates to pledge to defund Planned Parenthood, if they are elected
For those who live in other areas of the country, please use this link to find a rally near you.


Planned Parenthood Struggles Under Bad Publicity From Body Parts Trafficking Scandal

Democrats desperate to protect Planned Parenthood's sinking ship seek punitive DOJ investigation of Center for Medical Progress



By Cheryl Sullenger
Operation Rescue 

Washington, DC - David Daleiden, Director of the Center for Medical Progress, appeared on the Hannity Fox News program last night discussing his nearly 3-year investigation into Planned Parenthood's participation in the illegal profiting from the sale of aborted baby body parts that has resulted in national scandal.

Fox News Host Sean Hannity asked Daleiden, "So we are going to see tape after tape after tape as bad as the two we've already seen or worse?"

Daleiden responded, "Exactly. Even worse."

Daleiden continued, "We did this because Planned Parenthood had been harvesting and selling the body parts from the abortions they commit for decades now and no one has held them accountable. "They held themselves above the law and this is something offensive to the American public, it's offensive to us and human beings, it violates human dignity and it has to stop."

The fallout for Planned Parenthood has been staggering to the abortion giant, which was caught off-guard by the videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress in consultation with Operation Rescue.

Pro-Life Leaders Say Planned Parenthood Openly ‘Targets’ Black Community





Kelsey Harkness
The Daily Signal


Following allegations that Planned Parenthood is selling aborted fetal body parts for profit, black pro-life leaders are calling to defund the organization and address what they call “targeting” of their community.

“It’s an open secret that they are targeting the black community, that they have located their facilities within a two-mile walking radius of a black or Latino neighborhood…and they are coming after black women,” Catherine Davis of the National Black Pro-Life Coalition told The Daily Signal while gathering with other pro-life leaders in Alexandria, Va.

To hear that this organization is allowed by our government to do that kind of targeting is very disturbing to me. I call it today’s 21st Century Jim Crow.

Davis, a longtime critic of Planned Parenthood, said the only difference between Planned Parenthood and Jim Crow is that “we can’t see” the targeting because it occurs inside abortion clinics.

In light of the recent videos released by the Center for Medical Progress, which have sparked multiple investigations, Davis is calling on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.

“If they don’t defund Planned Parenthood after this, then shame on us. Shame on America, shame on every black person in this nation, every white person, every Latino person, that we would openly allow an organization that targets people based on their color of their skin to continue operating and harvesting the body parts of the unborn.”



China vs Planned Parenthood: A Modest Comparison

Fetal Cannibalism, Planned Parenthood Style




By Steven Mosher and Jonathan Abbamonte

On the menu of some exclusive Chinese restaurants is an item that goes by the name of Spare Rib Soup. Very expensive, it is usually served only in the back rooms to known customers, who are willing to pay to premium for this delicacy. So what is Spare Rib Soup?

Brace yourselves.

Spare Rib Soup…. is actually a human soup, made from the bodies of aborted babies. It is regarded by the Chinese—at least some Chinese—as a rejuvenating potion. A kind of fountain of youth that will fix sagging wrinkles, grow back missing hair, and generally put a spring back in your step.

All of which is quite simply nonsense.

But I thought of Spare Rib Soup when I watched the video of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services, Planned Parenthood, describing how her organization is harvesting and selling parts and pieces from aborted babies.

You’ve all seen the video by now, so I needn’t describe it in detail. If you haven’t, join the 2 million others who have. Prepare to be revolted.

I’m sure the picture of Nucatola calmly masticating her food as she discusses the importance of not crushing the organs so she “can get it all intact” will stay with you a long time. Or the thought of her sipping her cabernet sauvignon as she brags “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver”.

How the abortionist can manage to keep down her lunch while casually revealing that she did a “seventeen-weeker just this morning” is beyond me. She is talking about taking the life of a child who is about 12 inches long, can suck his thumb, can sense light and can feel pain. The thought makes me want to vomit. Apparently it stimulates her appetite.

Federal law prohibits the commercial trafficking of fetal tissue for profit and carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. That’s why Nucatola is careful to say that Planned Parenthood abortionists “want to come to a number that doesn’t look like they’re making money. … If they can do a little better than break even, and do so in a way that seems reasonable, they’re happy to do that”. [italics added]

Nucatola skirts the law a second time when she explains that Planned Parenthood’s abortionists sometimes do a manual version to keep the baby’s head intact so it can be sold. The baby is delivered feet first and killed in the process. This is, of course, akin to an illegal partial-birth abortion, following a 2003 law passed by the Congress and signed into law by President Bush.

The fetal soup sold in China is nauseating to any normal human being, but are Planned Parenthood’s actions any less so?

And reflect on this difference: In China, the only people responsible for this human cannibalism are the paying customers themselves. But in the United States, because of the huge subsidies that Planned Parenthood receives from the American taxpayer, we are all “paying customers”.

According to Planned Parenthood’s FY 2013-2014 annual report, the supposedly non-profit organization received a whopping $528 million. The U.S. taxpayer is the single largest contributor to Planned Parenthood, providing some 41 percent of its total revenue.

Planned Parenthood committed 327,653 abortions in the FY 2013-2014, an estimated one-third of all abortions committed in the U.S. that year. To put this number into perspective, Planned Parenthood abortionists are stopping a beating heart 37 times every hour, night and day, week after week, month after month.

And there is another reason why we can make no claims of moral superiority over China. Unlike the People’s Republic, we are a democratic country. We elected the men to Congress who appropriated our money and gave it to abortionists like Nucatola. We elected the President—Barack Obama—who keynotes Planned Parenthood fundraising events. So we are all—collectively—responsible for doing something about Planned Parenthood’s dirty business.

Because of its trafficking in baby body parts, Planned Parenthood is already under investigation by the U.S. House of Representatives and in several States, including Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Ohio, and Texas. More states need to follow—including your state.



It is past time to cut off all funding to the Planned Parenthood killing fields.

Contact your Congressman and Senators, your governors and state legislators, your mayors and your city counselors. Tell them to defund Planned Parenthood once and for all. Now.

Join a #WomenBetrayed Rally on Tuesday, July 28th



WHAT WE ARE DOING AND WHY

On July 14th and July 21st, the Center for Medical Progress released undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives casually discussing the harvesting and sale of baby body parts. It was sickening. It was horrifying. In both videos, the abortionists filmed - Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Senior Director of Medical Services and Dr. Mary Gatter, the President of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council - candidly discuss the harvesting and selling the body parts of aborted babies and the haggling of prices for these baby body parts.

The abortion giant claims they care about women but they don’t – just look at their actions. Planned Parenthood gets over $500 million a year in our taxpayer money and makes more than $100 million in profit, all while having abortion quotas. The organization has been caught covering up statutory rape, double-billing taxpayers, aiding and abetting sex traffickers, scheduling sex-selective abortions and accepting money to abort African American children.

Women have been betrayed by Planned Parenthood. Families have been deceived. And the smallest among us have been the ultimate victims of Planned Parenthood's horrific business schemes. Quite frankly, we've had enough. It’s time to relieve Planned Parenthood of our taxpayer dollars. Join pro-lifers across the nation on Tuesday, July 28th to call on state and federal officials to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood, now!



Baby Parts for Lamborghini’s




Tom Graffagnino

Baby parts for Lamborghini’s,
Planning Parenthood’s resolve.
Using suction….(It’s “less crunchy”)…
Watch the conscience, sir, devolve.

Watch the lawless claim, “It’s legal!”
Watch the dark disguised as light.
Watch man dining with the devil,
Note, please, this Inhuman Rite.

Watch the “hits” just keep on coming,
Watch as prophecy’s fulfilled,
Watch the flesh on center stage, sir…
Watch as innocents are killed.

Watch The Fall come into focus, 
And the Neo-Pagan reign…
Listen to the Idol chatter,
Watch atrocity mundane.

Watch as Molech makes a comeback,
Watch the “goddess” make her play…
Watch a culture’s downward spiral ,
Deadly Pride on full display.

Watch the Nihil-isticks banter,
Watch red tooth ‘n’ claw revered…
Watch progressives there progressing, 
Watch a nation’s conscience seared.


List of Businesses that Support Planned Parent(Murder)hood




by Fr. Peter Carota
Traditional Catholic Priest


How much do you know about the charitable organizations that you support? We hope your answer is “a lot.” But if the answer is “very little,” do not fret for LDI is here to do the research for you.
Does a charity you support:
  • give some of your hard-earned money to Planned Parenthood or another pro-abortion group?
  • advocate for embryonic stem cell research?
  • take an anti-life public position on a life issue (abortion, euthanasia, etc.)?
  • distribute abortifacient birth control?
  • choose to keep women in the dark regarding the link between abortion and breast cancer?
The answers to these and other questions may surprise (and disappoint) you. But they also present an opportunity for you to do something about it!

The names of the nonprofits are listed alphabetically. Each group is listed under commonly used names. For example, the Fraternal Order of Eagles may be found under “Eagles.” (If you cannot find what you are looking for, check under “National,” and “American.”)

A much more complete list of nonprofit organizations involved with the Culture of Death, with mailing addresses, names of chief executives, phone numbers, and so forth, may be found in the “Dishonorable Mention” section of The Boycott List.

"I want a Lamborghini" - New Video Shows Planned Parenthood Honcho Haggling over Baby Parts Price


Video refutes Cecile Richards’ claim that there is no profit for Planned Parenthood and raises further questions about the unethical altering of procedures to one “less crunchy.”


By Operation Rescue

Washington, DC - The second video in an investigative series from the Center for Medical Progress exposing Planned Parenthood's illicit sale of aborted baby body parts has now been released.

The most recent video shows a luncheon conversation with Dr. Mary Gatter, who currently serves as President of Planned Parenthood's Medical Directors' Council and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood's Pasadena abortion clinic.

In the video, Gatter is heard haggling over the price she will charge for intact fetal body parts and is concerned that she will be "low-balled." She asks for at least $75 per specimen, but wants to see what other Planned Parenthood abortionists are getting to make sure she gets similar compensation so she can buy an expensive sports car.

"It's been years since I've talked about compensation, so let me just figure out what others are getting and if this is in the ballpark, that's fine. If it's still low, we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini," Gatter laughed.

"The statements in the Gatter video prove that Cecile Richards flat-out lied when she said that Planned Parenthood does not profit in any way from the sale of aborted baby parts. It takes a lot of baby livers to buy a Lamborghini," said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. "And now it also appears that Planned Parenthood is also lying to women, altering their procedures in order to get body parts that can be sold for profit. These represent serious legal and ethical breeches for which Planned Parenthood must be held accountable."

Newman consulted on the undercover investigation conducted by David Daleiden, Director of the Center for Medical Progress for which Newman is a Board Member.

Gatter explains that she has no problem altering a procedure to one that is "less crunchy" ensure that the baby's body is as intact as possible, but also implies that they need to avoid the appearance - if not the fact - that they are selling the tissue.

Altering the abortion procedure to make sure organs are intact is considered unethical by medical standards and also illegal, which Gatter considers a "specious little argument."

"I don't think the patients would care one iota. So yeah, I'm not making a fuss about that," said Gatter

Planned Parenthood Federation of America is well aware of each participating affiliate's organ procurement contract and approves each one.

Last week, the CMP released a video showing Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola cavalierly discussing the sale of livers and other fetal organs obtained from altering late-second trimester abortion procedures. The video sparked a firestorm of outrage and prompted investigations into Planned Parenthood's sale of human fetal organs in Congress and seven states.

Survive


by John Bennett

Where are the innocent now?
Defenseless when taken away
Without a choice, yet they still have a voice
Do you wonder where they are today?
What would the unborn say?

From the womb by force I was taken
To a tomb where they buried my rights
I was a gift from God to my Momma
Until she was deceived for a time
I hope she knows that I still forgive her
And takes the time, to tell others the truth
For whatever it’s worth, or wherever you’re at
Mommy, I still love you

I’m still a part; I once shared your heart
After I was conceived
Now please don’t cry, for redemption draws nigh
In the freedom that you seek
All the hurt from the past, does not have to last
Break away all those chains of pain
There’s forgiveness and love, awaiting from above,

If you call upon His name
The days were few that we shared together
The sonogram was an image of me
Our DNA so closely related
But lost my freedom within your liberty
Now I’m not alone, it’s great here in Heaven
I’ve got a name, and a body a new
I long to see you one day, with the Lord we can stay
Daddy, I’m waiting for you

I’m still a part; I once shared your heart
After I was conceived
Now please don’t cry, for redemption draws nigh
In the freedom that you seek
All the hurt from the past, does not have to last
Break away all those chains of pain
There’s forgiveness and love, awaiting from above,
If you call upon His name

Why worry about prenatal care, if a human isn’t there
Won’t someone tell me why? (baby coos in the background)
She’s a child not a choice; He’s a baby with no voice
They’re both humans in the womb, a different stage that’s yet to bloom
So why are all the innocent dying? Why, have untold millions been silenced?
Why? Oh tell me why?
Why? When it’s a child not a fetus?
Why? Do you think God doesn’t see us?
Why? Oh tell me why?
Why…………must the unborn die?

She’s a child, not a choice
He’s a baby with no voice,
Let the unborn child “survive”
Oh tell me, tell me, tell me, oh woe won’t you tell me why (baby coos)
Oh tell me, tell me, tell me, oh woe won’t you tell me why…
“But God will redeem my life from the grave; he will surely take me to himself.” Psalms 49:15
