New Video Exposes Abortion Horror
The Center for Medical Progress (cmp) released another set of shocking undercover videos on May 24 exposing the gruesome reality of the abortion industry. The video contains excerpts of interviews taken by undercover members of cmp at the 2014 and 2015 National Abortion Federation conventions, some of which reveal the disturbing mindset of abortion providers.
“Given that we actually see the fetus the same way, and given that we might actually both agree that there’s violence in here … Let’s just give them all the violence, it’s a person, it’s killing, let’s just give them all that,” Dr. Lisa Harris, medical director of Planned Parenthood of Michigan, can be heard saying in the video.
The video also contains recorded admissions of abortion providers who are illegally trafficking fetal tissue from aborted babies. Dr. Paul Blumenthal, the former medical director for Planned Parenthood of Maryland said, “I know Planned Parenthood sells a lot of stuff [referring to fetal organs] to people.”
Others were recorded admitting to conducting illegal partial-birth abortions. “But we certainly do intact D&Es,” said the director of abortion services for Planned Parenthood, New York City, Dr. Stacy De-Lin. Intact D&Es (dilation and extraction) are another name for partial-birth abortions. They were outlawed in 2003 over concerns on their affect on the mother’s health.
The videos are the latest in a series that appear to confirm illegal activity in the abortion industry. The National Review reported in April:
The recent congressional investigation into the fetal-tissue-trafficking industry uncovered contracts and invoices showing that [Planned Parenthood senior executive Dr. Mary] Gatter’s affiliate, among others, accepted illegal payments from groups like Novogenix for providing baby body parts to researchers. The Novogenix contract, for example, promises Planned Parenthood Los Angeles $45 “per donated specimen.”
Planned Parenthood still refuses to provide records documenting the money they received in total from biotech firms, despite having been referred by Congress to federal, state and local law-enforcement agencies for criminal investigation.
While the courts decide if Planned Parenthood should be charged, they’re sure of one thing: Those who uncovered and exposed Planned Parenthood should be charged. The latest videos have already been erased from YouTube. In March, two members of cmp were charged with 15 felonies for their involvement in secretly recording the conversations with the abortion providers. This included 14 felony counts of unlawfully recording people without their permission as well as one count of conspiracy to invade privacy. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra said his office “will not tolerate the criminal recording of confidential conversations.”
“The right to privacy is a cornerstone of California’s Constitution, and a right that is foundational in a free democratic society,” he said.
Suddenly, the liberal left is a defender of law and rights. This twisted reasoning is at the center of lawlessness in America. While it vehemently defends someone’s right to privacy, it ignores laws that prevent trafficking of fetal tissue or that ban partial-birth abortions. While it determines to uphold the right to abortions, it ignores “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
And therein lies the root of the issue: who has endowed these rights to man. If you believe in God, you know that little embryo is a life, and that it will become a born human being, with an incredible potential wrapped up in that life (be sure to request a free copy of The Incredible Human Potential if you don’t have a copy to understand what this potential is). A belief in God means you understand that His law has authority in your life, and that His law states that any kind of murder is outlawed.
But if you believe that man is the originator of those rights, then you believe that man decides what constitutes life. You believe, as is stated in American law, that an embryo only constitutes a life if it’s viable outside the mother’s womb. Otherwise, it’s just a lump of cells. You believe that your rights supersede that of the fetus. That leads you to believe that any action against that fetus is justifiable—even pulling off its legs. ▪
