The House Judiciary Committee is holding another Planned Parenthood hearing today. This one will focus on the details of abortion procedures, with much of the attention on late-term abortions, as well as a medical analysis of the ramifications of altering abortion techniques to acquire intact, usable organs.
At its last hearing, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards was grilled on the ghastly practices of her organization and the way in which taxpayer money has been spent on those practices, along with the exorbitant salary she receives for being the public face for Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts of aborted infants.
Richards claimed that she had never heard of any baby being born alive during an abortion. If that’s never happened, why did Barack Obama, as an Illinois state senator, fight against a bill that would have provided medical care to children who “accidentally” showed signs of life after an abortion? Why fight against something that never happens?
She also had to admit, under this public scrutiny, that the oft-repeated claim that Planned Parenthood performs valuable services such as mammograms just isn’t true. One might ask why the mainstream media hasn’t picked up on that whopper, but there’s no need to ask—the mainstream media supports Planned Parenthood, being ideologically joined at the hip.
Democrats have pushed the lie that the videos showing the gruesomeness of abortion procedures and the callousness of conscience that allows for selling those body parts were “doctored.”
Bottom line: they aren’t interested in the truth.
Life is a sacred gift of God. We need to treat life with the greatest of respect. We’ve already seared our national conscience on abortion. Where are we headed next as a society?
Don’t think this couldn’t happen. I applaud all those who are taking a firm, principled stand for life. May their efforts roll back this tide of depravity.
