The recent Planned Parenthood videos that have surfaced have brought the abortion debate to the nation’s attention once again. The corruption within Planned Parenthood seems almost a farce, to see Dr. Mary Gatter, a Planned Parenthood medical director, haggle over the prices of aborted babies’ body parts while joking about wanting a Lamborghini seems too outrageous, too monstrous, too inhumane to be possible in our country.
Meanwhile Planned Parenthood is holding fast to their support of Dr. Gatter and Dr. Nucatola, mildly chastising Dr. Nucatola for not showing a “caring” attitude which is so central to their motto. But they are still defending their right to abortion, as well as their right to “donate” the “fetal tissue” (which is so clearly described by the doctors as hearts, livers, and lungs that are tricky to get out the right way so as not to crush them).
And the Pro-choice rhetoric is to a point where its assertions of “rights” is finally being held to scrutiny. This continual plea that it is a woman’s right to determine wether her child lives or dies is starting to sound questionable.
We had better be careful when we use the word “rights”.
Because the law defended a white man’s right to own a black man.
And the law defended a German’s right to seize the property of a Jew and send them to a concentration camp.
When we use this language of “rights” we had better tread carefully, because when we start to assert that our value and rights are held above another person’s we become the villains in our own stories.
Because to a slave-owner a black slave had more value as property than as a person.
And to a German Nazi a Jew had more value as an experiment than as a person.
And to a Pro-choicer a baby has more value cut in pieces for “life-giving” research than as a person.
Regardless of Planned Parenthood’s other programs, regardless of what percentage goes into abortion, we know, without doubt, that two of their medical directors look at human life as something to trade like a piece of meat, we know they look at human life as something they have the right to end and to distribute as they see fit, we know they look at human life as property, we know this, and Planned Parenthood still defends them. The corruption of Planned Parenthood is not something to defend, it is something to systematically eradicate.
To those of you who have identified yourself as pro-choice and supporters of Planned Parenthood, now is the time to acknowledge the corruption. I ask you to step back from what has been your Progressive rhetoric and look at what your place will be in history. Pro-choice holds the position of oppressor, and now is the time, as you are faced with the reality of what the abortion business really looks like, to repent to the gracious God whom we all must answer to, to find forgiveness and freedom in the sacrifice of Jesus, and to put yourself on the side of the fight that upholds all life and sees every person as valuable by the very nature of their being created by God.
Because no matter what good things Planned Parenthood may or may not do for women, their provision of abortion creates a callousness and a disregard for human life, as we can see so clearly in the two videos. Dr. Gatter and Dr. Nucatola perform abortions regularly, and the complete nonchalance they show when discussing the murder and dismemberment of babies is a natural conclusion to abortion justification. If that fetus is not a life worth defending, then Dr. Gatter and Dr. Nucatola haven’t shown any “lack of caring”, they’ve simply done their job with precision. They have gotten rid of a child that was perceived to have no value, and have in fact turned that child into something of monetary worth by it’s piecemeal organs. If this seems preposterous to you, it is. Because those livers and hearts they describe are not “fetal tissue”, but the body of a nameless child who was not deemed worthy enough for a grave. And the hearts of those two Doctors and the many others in the abortion industry have been hardened by their careers as systematic killers. The abortion industry must be abolished for the sake of the children being murdered, for the sake of the mother’s handing them over, and for the sake of the doctors who’s hands are bloodied.
No matter what “good” comes out of Planned Parenthood it will never make up for the evil within it. I side with John Wesley,
I deny that any villainy is ever necessary. It is impossible that it should ever be necessary for any reasonable creature to violate all of the laws of justice, mercy and truth. No circumstance can make it necessary for any person to tear apart all the ties of humanity!
-Thoughts Upon Slavery
Voluntary abortion (excluding instances when the mother’s life is threatened) is never necessary. It is never necessary that we ever claim one person has a higher value than another. It is never necessary that we dehumanize a person so as to justify our means to accomplish our ends.
Villainy is never necessary, and it is certainly not a right.
