An old article from 2015 is circulating around voat about reports of Planned Parenthood keeping aborted babies alive to harvest organs. This is the hill worth dying on, folks. This is pure evil. And it is not debatable. Shame on any pro-choicer who defends funding this institution. Enough with the pleasantries. IT IS NOT OKAY TO KEEP BABIES ALIVE TO HARVEST THEIR ORGANS. I thought I was once pro-choice for very early abortions. No more. Via the article:
In an undercover video released Wednesday, a former technician for a tissue-harvesting company details how an aborted baby was kept alive so that its heart could be harvested at a California Planned Parenthood facility, raising more legal questions about the group’s practices.
Holly O’Donnell, a former blood and tissue procurement technician for the biotech startup StemExpress, also said she was asked to harvest an intact brain from the late-term, male fetus whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
A StemExpress supervisor “gave me the scissors and told me that I had to cut down the middle of the face. And I can’t even describe what that feels like,” said Ms. O’Donnell, who has been featured in earlier videos by the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group that previously had released six undercover clips involving Planned Parenthoodpersonnel and practices.
And a little further down:
California law also prohibits any kind of experimentation on a fetus with a discernible heartbeat, said the Center for Medical Progress, which is calling for the federal government to cease its $500 million a year support to Planned Parenthood and for it to be investigated.
“Today’s video is especially gruesome, and it shows, once again, the barbarity of what takes place at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country,” said Rep. Joseph R. Pitts, Pennsylvania Republican and chairman of the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on health, one of several congressional panels investigating Planned Parenthood.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz, Utah Republican and chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said Wednesday that all the videos are “disturbing,” and his committee’s investigation will look into whether “any federal funding supported transactions involving fetal tissue.”
“Top-level employees of Planned Parenthood admit to changing their procedures to harvest intact bodies of unborn children for body-part trafficking,” said Rep. Trent Franks, Arizona Republican and chairman of the House Judiciary subcommittee on the Constitution and civil justice.
Mr. Franks and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, also said Wednesday that they have written to 58 Planned Parenthood affiliates. They are seeking 10 years of data about all abortions, late-term abortions, “born-alive” infants, fetal tissue collections and any modifications of abortion techniques to “increase the odds of preserving intact fetal tissue and organs.”
Five states — Louisiana, Alabama, Arkansas, Utah and New Hampshire — already have defunded Planned Parenthood.
The video is posted below. It is a little gruesome at parts, especially from the 5′ 30″ mark going forward.
The article was from 2015. Planned Parenthood’s annual report from 2017-2018 shows that they are still well funded over half a billion dollars a year from the government. That is your tax money, folks.
This is what happens when you turn away from God. People can roll their eyes; once upon a time I would have too. But it is true. Since we have turned away from Christianity can we honestly say we are better off as a country? Have we really progressed as a society? No. Christianity instilled a moral compass that has been eroded to the point where you are shamed if you question the KILLING OF BABIES. Where some people will honestly justify this, like it is an acceptable moral position, saying a woman has a right to choose what to do with her body. NO. The moment you decide to make a bad decision, the moment you choose to get blackout drunk and sleep with someone you probably don’t even know, you have made your decision. When another life now depends on your own, you do not have the right to kill it. Shame on us for ever allowing it to come to this. Where we cannot even hold that moral position without caving to some BS about “my body my choice”. It is not progress to kill a human life because a woman wants carte blanche to sleep with as many partners as she wants and then not suffer any of the consequences of her actions. Even worse is that we are all paying for it. Why are we funding birth control measures? Why are we funding abortions? Yes, Planned Parenthood receives federal reimbursement through Medicaid. Medicaid covers abortions.
Enough is enough. Do not commit the sin of omission by sitting idly by knowing what you now know about the situation. Write your state representatives. Do not be afraid to call out pro-choicers, feminists, or anyone else who will try to justify this unjustifiable position. Vote out the politicians who support funding Planned Parenthood. Consider moving to states that will not fund this. The reasons continue to pile up for why I should leave California and move back to New Hampshire. California is at the very heart of all of this. We all need to step up and take action. Merely shaking our heads and saying how terrible it is is not enough. Spread the word.
