According to Center for Medical Progress, a group of journalists who are monitoring the contemporary bioethics world, Planned Parenthood gets a failing grade.
An investigative video put out by CMP shows Dr. Deborah Nucatola, a Senior Director of Medical Services at Planned Parenthood, discussing the sale of fetal body parts with a couple of undercover members from the center.
If the video isn’t disturbing enough, the demeanor of Nucatola as she discusses how to adjust the technique during the abortion so as to not harm the organs, is. She is stuffing her mouth with salad and drinking wine while nonchalantly going into the details of where the forceps will be placed on the infant’s body to ensure the organs have a safe delivery, but that the end result is death.
Since the video went viral Senator Rand Paul, R-Ky., has called on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood altogether. His email, highlighting the issue, went out Wednesday to his supporters asking them to sign a petition in support of his request. He is right on the money as he reminded them who holds the purse strings for programs like Planned Parenthood.
He brought out a quote from the video in which Nucatola says, “We’ve been very good at getting the heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part.” How she can retain the “Dr.” in front of her name is beyond understanding. I wonder if she was required to take the Hippocratic Oath. “I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion”, is in the vow listed on the website of The National Institutes of Health. I guess we’ve come a long way since then.
According to Breitbart, “The video, provided by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, purports to show an actual online order form from StemExpress where buyers can order the parts they want and the age of gestation. The pull down menu shows “brain, heart, heart (veins and arteries attached), lungs, liver, liver and thymus, spleen, large intestine” and so on. The order form allows the buyer to choose the gestational age of the baby to be aborted from four weeks upward.”
The company is only five years old and is located in California. It claims to be a multi-million dollar business. Reportedly their website crashed sometime today. Since the selling or buying of body parts is against Federal Law, I would hope some of those involved to be prosecuted.
The abortion industry has always been about money, getting rid of the less desirable, and providing an avenue for women not to be inconvenienced with a child. Our culture has become one of self-centeredness to the point of practicing pure evil if it makes our life easier and lines our purses.
