When I pitched this piece to the Post, I told them, truthfully, that I did not want to write about this Planned Parenthood debacle in the USA. It started in July and I avoided writing about it, until now. I felt compelled when I saw Planned Parenthood Ottawa using depravity to raise funds.
Hopefully the general public in Canada is starting to get a better idea of why Planned Parenthood donations might diminish. BTW, for the reader who is aghast and reading this for the first time, Planned Parenthood does not contest the videos, the veracity of the videos or the fact that they sell human parts. They only contest that they make profit by it. Which is the part that would get them in trouble with the law. Whereas the rest of it is merely deeply troubling.
BTW, many are asking me, how do we know Planned Parenthood in Canada doesn’t do the same thing? They don’t have clinics, is why. They can refer to private clinics and hospitals. They can support their USA counterpart from the sidelines–which they do–but without the clinical capacity to do abortions, they can’t actually sell human body parts/babies/beating hearts. That’s my understanding at this point. If anyone has capacity to correct, feel free. What we don’t know is whether private abortion clinics and/or hospitals are engaging in this practice.
Why specifically now would Planned Parenthood donations diminish? This a question they would rather let fade into obscurity.
On July 28, a group calling themselves the Center for Medical Progress began releasing the results of an investigative sting operation into the practices of Planned Parenthood south of the border. Two actors, posing as buyers of organs for research purposes, took undercover video purportedly showing that Planned Parenthood in the United States engages in the sale of fetal hearts, livers, kidneys and heads (“calvarium”) for profit.
The video evidence, all of which is available in full online, shows Planned Parenthood executives in different states discussing fetal organs with infinitely less concern than your auto mechanic discusses car parts.
Quotes include one Planned Parenthood director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, saying, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver … so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.” This while drinking a glass of wine and munching on a salad.
Additional videos show Planned Parenthood lab techs showing off bloody body parts — little legs, hands and arms — to the actors posing as buyers, declaring when it was “another boy” or a twin. The discussion of financial benefits is frequent and forthcoming, with one Planned Parenthood exec saying that “she wants a Lamborghini.”
Are times ever so tough that the body parts of aborted fetuses should go up for sale?
