In the wake of Center for Medical Progress release of videos showing Planned Parenthood’s sale of human baby organs for profit, there has been an outcry that those who protest such organ sales are “attacking women” or “blocking women’s health.” What an outrageous statement.
As a physician specialist in Women’s Health for over 25 years, I say categorically that abortion is NOT “healthcare.” Medicine and physicians strive to preserve LIFE. Abortion is death. Abortion is the anti-thesis of life. That is why most physicians do not practice abortion and cringe at the thought.
In fact, for over 2,500 years, the Oath of Hippocrates for physicians has prohibited us from performing abortions or prescribing abortifacient drugs.
In my clinical practice seeing women, I find two victims of abortion: the soul and life of the baby who never had a choice, and the soul and psyche of the woman who chose to have her baby killed. Years later, the abortion takes its toll on women in higher rates of depression, anxiety, and even endocrine hormonal problems.
Let’s be correct in terms: Abortion ends the life of a baby. In fact, if it isn’t a baby, then the woman isn’t pregnant.
Planned Parenthood uses benign terms as fetus, tissue, specimen, or “glob of cells” is designed to confuse patients and the public, and to hide the emotional impact of the reality: this is a human baby whose life is being snuffed out. Now we see that PP is using body parts from this “blob of tissue” to bring in revenue, beyond its 500 million a year in federal funding from taxpayers!
Planned Parenthood abortion practices are even more horrific than anyone knew. Doctors and their assistants actually use ultrasound, normally a life-saving diagnostic tool, as instrument of death to crush the baby in such a way to retrieve undamaged organs. Doctors who did this in a normal hospital setting would likely lose their license or possibly face jail.
The baby’s death is not done in any gentle or humane way. Babies are crushed. Torn apart while alive. Cut into pieces in ways to save whole organs for sale and profit. Abortionists cannot use feticides such as digoxin to kill the baby first. That would make the saleable (profitable) organs then unusable. That means the baby is crushed for organ retrieval while still alive.
The Planned Parenthood doctors make Dr. Joseph Menegle, Hitler’s “Doctor of Death” look like an angel of mercy by comparison.
Planned Parenthood itself is a misleading name, designed to obscure the role as agency of death to 1.6 million babies annually. It is more correctly called Planned Infanticide.
An even darker side of Planned “Parenthood” is the connection to the American Eugenics movement of the early 1900s that subsequently led Hitler to his views of racial cleansing to create a “Master Race”.
Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood in 1916 and idolized by feminists today, was a leader in the Eugenics movement, speaking and writing extensively on the urgency of “exterminating inferior races.”
Sanger focused particularly on blacks, saying “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.” Sanger also wrote “Slaves, Latin, and Hebrew immigrants are…a deadweight of human waste. Blacks,soldiers, and Jews are a menace to the (human) race.”
Sanger must be ecstatic. Her legacy of Planned Parenthood has cost the lives of over 57 million babies since 1973, with over 13 MILLION of them African-American babies. That makes Planned Parenthood the leader in Black Genocide. Over 80% of Planned Parenthood abortions are either Black or Hispanic babies. There are now more abortions among Blacks in New York than there are live births.
Today’s Black Lives Matter proponents apparently do not know this hidden side of Planned Parenthood’s abortion deaths of Blacks, or they would not keep supporting political candidates who vote for taxpayer funding of Planned clinics that destroy so many black babies.
- Planned Parenthood conducts 1.6 million abortions annually, according to CDC statistics.
- They receive more than half a billion dollars annually in taxpayer funding.
- It is against US law to perform abortions in a manner designed to preserve heart, lung, liver and other organs intact. Yet for Planned Parenthood, this is exactly what they are doing according to their own admissions on camera.
- Sales of baby organs are big business for Planned Parenthood’s coffers. Details of actual dollars generated are still withheld from public scrutiny.
In another bizarre twist, typical of the cronyism and hidden agendas that dominate the Washington DC cartel today, House Speaker Boehner’s Health Policy Director Charlotte Ivancic, is the sister of Cate Dyer, the CEO of Stem Express, LLC that buys organs from Planned Parenthood. Could this explain Speaker Boehner’s block of the House vote to defund Planned Parenthood?
Planned Parenthood reports to be a “women’s health” provider to justify its federal funding. Yet all of the non-abortion medical services are already available through taxpayer-funded federal community health clinics. Taxpayers should not be hit twice for the same services.
America, what have we become that we allow such mass killing of human babies and selling of their organs? What have we become that our elected representatives do not enforce existing laws to stop criminal practices? Is this who we as a country really are?
“Women’s health” needs to return to a focus on life, health, and the entirety of our humanness with multiple medical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
