In the past few days an undercover video has been released by the Center for Medical Progress that should be shocking and disgusting to all civilized people.
Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services, is describing how her organization sells the body parts of unborn aborted children during a luncheon appointment.
As Nucatola sips her wine and eats a salad she casually describes how to best crush an unborn child to preserve those body parts. Her description was so gross and insensitive, that the President of Planned Parenthood, Cecile Richards offered this apology for the “tone” of Dr. Nucatola.
“Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide. In the video, one of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion. This is unacceptable, and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements.”
Of course, Richards, did not offer any apology for the procedure that has claimed the lives of 57 million innocent children since 1973 when abortion was legalized in the united States.
The reaction has been swift and pointed by pro-life advocates.
Senator James Langford said that he had spent last Thursday in a meeting about protected ora whales and horses when he heard the news.
In an emotional speech on the Senate floor, Senator Langford addressed his colleagues, often fighting back tears. “You can’t say in one moment that’s not a human and then sell it for the next moment as a human organ and say now suddenly it is. It was a human all the way through. There was never a time that wasn’t a child, never a time that wasn’t a human, and it seems the ultimate irony to me that we spend time talking about humane treatment of animals being put down… and we completely miss children being ripped apart in the womb and their body parts being sold.”
In a recent interview, retired Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson, who dedicated his career to saving lives observed, “What’s really disturbing,” Carson said, “is the fact that we have become so calloused that a lot of people don’t even realize that this is shocking. To see the callousness with which we are treating human life… There are so many people who are concerned about little spiders and things, and yet, the human being inside the mother’s womb… is much more sophisticated than many of these creatures that they’re trying to preserve.”
/Planned Parenthood insist that fetal tissue is important to medical research, a claim which Dr Carson called “spurious” and explained “There’s nothing that can’t be done without fetal tissue.”
Cries from many quarters have denounced Planned Parenthood’s procedures. Yet, when a society ignores and discards the rule of God’s divine law, what can we expect?
The Psalmist David knew who made his body parts and gave him life in his mother’s wombs when he described the greatness of Jehovah’s power and majesty.
For you created my innermost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. (Ps 139:13-16)
Our concerns about Planned Parenthood and abortion are not political, but spiritual. The blood of 57 million children cry, “How long, how long?” In the meantime, we wait for God’s answer.
