The Center for Medical Progress released a third video this morning, and it is even more gruesome than the previous ones.  I’m including the video below.  Please note that there is a warning near the end, and if you are at all tenderhearted, you should heed that warning.  The images you see are horrendous and will be seared into your mind’s eye.

Why is it horrendous?  Because, after debating the prices for body parts and deciding on the euphemistic language they’d use to cover up what they were really doing, they visited the remnants of a 11-week-old fetus and literally picked through the body parts to decide which ones were viable enough to earn money for Planned Parenthood, flipping a petite eyeball away because it wouldn’t earn them anything.

Before I saw this video, I wanted to believe these people were so uninformed that they really saw these tiny arms, legs, hearts, livers and other body parts as simply tissue, but my doubt was removed by a comment the doctor herself made as she first approached the petri dish.  “It’s a baby.”

Baby FeetA baby.

Not a fetus.

A baby.

That told me everything.  They know what they’re doing.  They know they are killing tiny humans.  They know it’s a real baby, not a lump of tissue.

They know—and don’t care.

Tell me, what’s the difference between these people and serial killers?

They know they are extinguishing the life of a human being.  They know they are doing it by literally pulling the child apart, ripping legs and arms from the torso, crunching skulls, eviscerating this tiny being.  They do it without feeling any sense of remorse or guilt for what they’re doing.  Isn’t this how serial killers behave with no regard whatsoever for their victims?

And then there are those who excuse them, who offer reasons why these ghouls are actually performing a service to women so we shouldn’t criticize them.  Aren’t they just as guilty because they try to hide the truth?

Has the coverage for these Planned Parenthood exposé videos been adequate to the magnitude of the horror?  Well, let’s check the stats. (from The O’Reilly Factor)

Planned Parenthood newest video coverage on CBS, NBC and ABC combined:
11 minutes, 13 seconds

Does that seem like enough for a story about an organization partially funded by American taxpayers’ dollars?  Well, let’s get some perspective.

In Zimbabwe, an American dentist paid $50,000 to kill a lion.

How much time did those three networks spend covering Cecil the lion’s death?
30 minutes, 1 second

Huh.  So, the three major networks spent almost three times as many minutes covering the death of a lion (which, by the way, is a non-story in Zimbabwe among the majority of the people) than they did the harvesting and trafficking in human baby body parts.

Really?  Is a lion’s life three times more important to these networks than thousands of human babies?  What does this tell us about their own humanity?

As I watched this newest video, all I could think of was Romans 1:28-29:

“Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.  They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity.”

These are indeed, as the doctor herself said, “war-torn babies,” and only those with a depraved mind could ever see this and not want to make it stop. Immediately.

I’d like to recommend Malcomthecynic’s post, Here is What Planned Parenthood Said that is Completely Unambiguous, for a good think through on a couple of points.

Also, in this post from Egnorance, we see a good point about if it’s a donation, there shouldn’t be any haggling.  Haggling indicates it’s not purely for their expenses, but they’re trying to get the most money out of it–and that indicates profit.

I’m sure by now you’ve see the video exposing Planned Parenthood’s trafficking in fetal body parts, and I would hope you were as horrified as I was by what you saw.  But the sad truth is that there are some in the media who are trying to shirk it off as no big deal.

This blog is about viewing what we hear and see through the lenses of a biblical Christian worldview, and from this perspective, there’s simply no excuse for harvesting baby parts with no more emotion than picking a new crop of tomatoes.
Unborn Child
The Bible tells us we are “fearfully and wonderfully made” and that all of our days were written in God’s book before we were even born.  (Psalm 139:14-16)  Then how can it be right to destroy a human life and then ship off the parts for experimentation?  Those defending this practice claim the study of fetal tissue can help us understand how our organs work.  So, let me get this straight.  The fetus is not human and that’s why they say it’s fine to kill it, but it’s organs somehow are human?  This makes no sense.  If the fetal tissue and organs is human after it’s removed, then it was human before the child was killed.

This should send a shiver down every human’s spine.  If a woman can so callously eat her meal and talk about chopping up babies, how much lower will she stoop if the price is right?  She claimed it was legal because the mothers, and I use that term purely in a biological way, have given their consent for the child’s organs to be used for science.  Huh.  So does that mean now that if a serial killer finds a scientist who is depraved enough, he can sell that man body parts of his victims?  And that’s okay because “something good is coming from it”?  Yet that’s what MSNBC’s host Alex Wagner (in the video below) claimed made it all fine.

For those who justify it, the end justifies the means.  If we’ve become a nation where that mentality rules, then may God help us all.

Anyone can justify their behavior, but that doesn’t mean their behavior is right.  Murderers and rapists justify why they do what they do.  Does their own self-justification exonerate them?

Just stop trying to excuse it.  There. Is. No. Excuse.

What kind of a country do we live in when law-abiding businesses are fined, threatened and demonized for refusing to bake gay wedding cakes, but barbaric baby butchers are hailed by feminists, Hollywood and a president who asked God to ‘bless’ them?

God help us.
