Why all the fuss about body parts and/or fetal tissue Planned Parenthood is allegedly selling? They aren’t human. They are fetuses. The law states fetuses aren’t alive because they aren’t considered “viable;” meaning they can’t survive on their own apart from their incubator in most gestational stages.
Even after the fetus emerges from its incubator it is still not legally protected as a child or a person. Doesn’t anyone listen to Barack Obama?
Obama clarifies any confusion about this. On March 30, 2001 he argued before the Illinois General Assembly that if a doctor is required to “have to keep alive a pre-viable child as long as possible and give them as much medical attention as is necessary to try to keep that child alive, then we’re probably crossing the line in terms of unconstitutionality.”
Understand? According to Obama it’s unconstitutional to try and keep alive a non, or pre-viable fetus. (The Hippocratic Oath doesn’t apply in this instance.)
“Whenever we define a pre-viable fetus as a person that is protected by the equal protection clause or the other elements in the Constitution, what we’re really saying is, in fact, that they are persons that are entitled to the kinds of protections that would be provided to a – child, a nine-month-old – child that was delivered to term. That determination then, essentially, if it was accepted by a court, would forbid abortions to take place. I mean, it – it would essentially bar abortions, because the equal protection clause does not allow somebody to kill a child, and if this is a child, then this would be an antiabortion statute.”
In 2006 Obama also asserted abortion doesn’t violate any moral principle.
Planned Parenthood isn’t at fault for using suction curettage or vacuum aspiration procedures either. They’re perfectly legal and safe. Physicians, even non-physicians, have been using suction and curettage methods for years, beginning in the first trimester. Suctioning out the fetus doesn’t harm the incubator and the fetus doesn’t feel being ripped apart because it’s not a human being.
The cannula (a hollow plastic tube connected to a vacuum-type pump with a flexible hose) dislodges and sucks the fetus out of the uterus into the tube—either whole or in pieces.
Next, a curette is used to scrape out anything left inside. This is followed by one last round of vacuum suction to really make sure no pieces like a foot or head are left inside. After all of the contents are suctioned into a jar they are examined to determine if they adequately represent the correct amount of fetal parts and tissue correlated to gestational estimates.
Gays and transgender people can participate as well, in simulated procedures offered at gay abortion “spas”. They can pay to pretend to be human incubators who choose not to allow anything to grow in their non-uteruses and undergo a simulated procedure to remove nothing from their bodies. It’s unclear if Jeb Bush’s communication’s director Tim Miller or any of his other gay activist staff members have tried it. But according to national news reports, gays are raving about it.
Don’t be angry with Planned Parenthood. One of its founding treasurers who helped launch its first national fundraising campaign in 1947 was Prescott Bush, father of former President George H.W. Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush and former governor Jeb Bush. The Bush Dynastic legacy has long been involved with reproductive rights and family planning.
It’s no secret that Prescott’s daughter-in-law Barbara has publicly supported pro-choice positions and contraception use, as does his grand daughter-in law Laura. Even former First Lady Barbara Bush kept her miscarried fetus in a jar.
In 1991 he publicly addressed Congress referring to a “new world order,” which includes family planning on a global scale.
After all, he had learned from his father who supported advocacy campaigns designed to control family size as part of the war effort. (It was only until he was tapped as Ronald Reagan’s Vice President that as a job requirement he had to publically change his position and politically oppose abortion, contraception, and Planned Parenthood.)
To be fair, the Bushes aren’t alone. In 1946, more than 3,000 Jewish and Protestant clergymen publicly supported Planned Parenthood. In the 1950’s men primarily interested in population control ran Planned Parenthood (their efforts were a smaller version of those financed today by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation). Even Barry Goldwater was an active supporter, and his wife was a Planned Parenthood board member in Phoenix.
Body parts, like stem cells, should at least be used for something. The U.S. government is funding far worse.
Like Iran, America’s sworn enemy.
And ISIS (the “Junior League, non-Islamic group” partially trained and funded by U.S. tax dollars and debt), which is using U.S. military weapons, ammunition, communications and transportation to commit widespread genocide against mostly Christians (in the name of Allah). Genocide is certainly one method of population control.
Where’s the outrage or political will to stop funding ISIS and Iran and protect Christian refugees?
ISIS isn’t selling body parts. Yet they’ve received far more resources from the U.S. than Planned Parenthood has.
ISIS is selling whole bodies. Living “viable” bodies.
Living “viable” bodies of mostly 9 year-old girls and younger.
Living girls are repeatedly sold in slave bazaars. For less than $200.
Where’s the outrage and political will to rescue the living?
