“Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this ($100/body part) is in the ballpark, then it’s fine. If it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”
– Dr. Mary Gatter, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President
A second video was just released this morning revealing more about Planned Parenthood’s human-body-parts-for-money dealings. The fact that these discussions are happening during meals is one of the most disturbing details. Meals are for celebrating life and relationships… not for scheming the destruction of life and relationships.
I’m not a polemical person. Though a conservative, I don’t watch the Fox News Channel (or any of the liberal-versions of that type of stone-throwing, entertainment-driven “coverage”). I think much of our television news industry is geared to instill fear and cause hatred of “the other side,” and I don’t agree with those goals. There are humans on each side of every issue. Many of my closest friends and family members are pro-choice and liberal, and while disagreeing with them, I deeply love and respect them. All that to say, I’m not throwing up these posts on Planned Parenthood to simply contribute to the vitriol that is American politics these days.It’s just that on this issue – human beings being killed in the womb using methods that keep body parts intact so that they can be sold – I can’t be silent. We are wrong as a nation. We are wrong to help fund Planned Parenthood. We are wrong to call human body parts merely “tissues.” We are wrong to joke about how our “compensation” from these horrific acts might help us purchase a Lamborghini. And we are wrong if, as American citizens, we don’t take our tears to the tops of the highest mountains and scream about how wrong we have been.
Friends, if abortion and the sale of human body parts deeply saddens you, find a mountain, scramble up it as fast as possible, and scream. For the love of life… scream.
Psalm 93:3-9 (ESV)
O LORD, how long shall the wicked,and murder the fatherless;
how long shall the wicked exult?
They pour out their arrogant words;
all the evildoers boast.
They crush your people, O LORD,
and afflict your heritage.
They kill the widow and the sojourner,
and they say, “The LORD does not see;
the God of Jacob does not perceive.”
Understand, O dullest of the people!
Fools, when will you be wise?
He who planted the ear, does he not hear?
He who formed the eye, does he not see?
