The fifth video of The Center for Medical Progress illustrates just how eager Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. is to profit from the corpses of some of their victims.

A Planned Parenthood executive admits in an undercover video that her doctors alter abortion procedures and she manipulates prices to accommodate specific fetal tissue harvesting requests — including delivering fully intact fetuses — though doing so may violate federal law.

In the nearly 16-minute, edited video, the fifth released by Center for Medical Progress, a woman identified as Melissa Farrell, director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, discusses pricing for specimens — ranging from intact fetuses to tissue and organs — for outside tissue procurement companies.

“Yeah, and so if we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget, that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this,” Farrell said. “I mean it’s all just a matter of line items.”

    Did American Independence start with a tax revolt?

  • Mitch McConnell voted against it as well, supposedly on a technicality.

    Please note: McConnell had been refusing to bring it up.

  • Abortion is the liberal’s blood sacrament.

  • Can we finally put to bed the lie that there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats when it comes to advancing the pro-life cause? I even see that canard repeated in posts on this site. Enough! It is the party of death.

  • Of course there’s a difference: the Democrats support abortion and do everything they can to keep it vibrantly alive; the Republicans talk about opposing abortion and do everything they can to just fail at putting a slight dent in it.

    Seriously – with a GOP controlled Congress, why haven’t they voted to not renew any grants, subsidies, etc. to PP? Why this kabuki theatre on “defunding” and the “Oh, we tried, but those dastardly Democrats foiled us again” trope? Why is it when the Dems want abortion to keep going, they can accomplish it even when they are in the minority, but the GOP can’t seem to get anything done about PP, even when in the majority? All they have to do is next time voting for funding this satanic cult comes around, vote “no.” A simple majority is all they need.

  • It is difficult to fathom that we tolerate – even defend as a right – what the Nazis did in concentration camps 70 years ago, and for which many were hung by the neck till they were dead. I sincerely hope and pray for a peaceable end to abortion, but Democrats did not give up slavery without a fight. 🙁 I hope we come to repentance on our own without the need for God to do what He did to Israel and Judah.

  • “Seriously – with a GOP controlled Congress, why haven’t they voted to not renew any grants, subsidies, etc. to PP?”

    Been there, done that. Obama vetoes the spending bill. The Government shuts down. The GOP gets a huge amount of bad press. The GOP caves.

  • Good answer Donald ?

  • The blue blood Republicans include a lot of folks (I call the country club set “snobs” ) who support abortion–plain & simple. What we conservative Republicans called the “blue bloods/old money/country club Republicans on the 1990s are now generally referred to as the “establish Republicans.” I was sent as a pro-life emissary to the Greater Little Rock Republican Women’s Club from the North Pulaski Republican Women’s Club during my younger years. Those two Republican womens’ clubs were at each others’ throats over the abortion issue (and drinking and fornicating and attending church, etc,). These women despised each other! The Greater Little Rock women were rabidly pro-choice. The North Pulaski women were rabidly pro-life. Acting as a peace making emissary, I was greatly resented and publicly mistreated by the pro-choice group.

    A staunchly pro-life young man whom I knew became the executive director of the state Republican party about this same time. Within a year of interacting with RNC power brokers as the executive director, the young man began to advise the pro-life folks in the party to basically pipe down because he didn’t want us running off more liberal folks. The executive director also recommended that we keep our mouths shut re: the sin of specifically homosexual sex acts–saying that the Republican Party must have a “big tent” philosophy.

    That type of battle had been going on long before I got involved and is still going on within the party today. The establishment types absolutely cannot stand people with my political and religious view points and work constantly to undermine any cannot who disagrees woth the RMC in explicit manners. In our state currently, Republican party power has been consolidated all the way from the liberals at the RNC to the lowliest precinct member on the county committee. No one gets raised to the federal level in our state whom the RNC cannot explicitly control once they arrive in Washington. such top down power was achieved through dictatorial use of our state party rules committee issuing edicts defining what would and could happen at the local levels. We conservatives despised the Democrat Party when it was operated In such a fashion. We have lost a lot of respect for the Republicans at the national level over these issues.

Veil of Lies

Wednesday, July 22, AD 2015

 

My favorite liberal, Kirsten Powers, has a first rate column on the Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. videos:

 

Planned Parenthood head Cecile Richards apologized last week for the uncompassionate tone her senior director of medical research, Deborah Nucatola, used to explain the process by which she harvests aborted body parts to be provided for medical research.

Nucatola had been caught on an undercover video talking to anti-abortion activists posing as representatives of a biological tissue procurement company. The abortion doctor said, “I’d say a lot of people want liver,” and “a lot of people want intact hearts these days.” Explaining how she could perform later-term abortions to aid the harvesting of such intact organs, she said, “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, 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.”

A second undercover video released Tuesday shows another Planned Parenthood official talking about using a “less crunchy” way to perform abortions while preserving salable fetal tissue.

This is stomach-turning stuff. But the problem here is not one of tone. It’s the crushing. It’s the organ harvesting of  fetuses that abortion-rights activists want us to believe have no more moral value than a fingernail. It’s the lie that these are not human beings worthy of protection. There is no nice way to talk about this. As my friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”

Richards worked to discredit the video by complaining it was “heavily edited.” But the nearly three-hour unedited video — a nauseating journey through the inner workings of the abortion industry — was posted at the same time as the edited video. Richards intoned menacingly that the video was “secretly recorded.” So what? When Mitt Romney was caught by “secret video” making his 47% remarks, the means of attaining the information was not the focus of the story.

  • “The pro-aborts have never gotten much beyond their a “mere clump of cells” defense of abortion that I heard back when the abortion battle was new in the seventies”

    Is that really true?

    In his Rethinking Life and Death (1996), Princeton bioethicist, Peter Singer submitted that “[The argument that a fetus is not alive] is a resort to a convenient fiction that turns an evidently living being into one that legally is not alive. Instead of accepting such fictions, we should recognise that the fact that a being is human, and alive, does not in itself tell us whether it is wrong to take that being’s life” and goes on to justify both abortion and infanticide.

    In 2012 a paper in the Journal of Medical Ethics, “After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?” by Alberto Giubilini and Francesca Minerva, expressed similar views.

    This is implicit in the Veil Law ((Law No. 75-17 of January 1975, concerning the Voluntary Termination of Pregnancy), “The law guarantees respect for every human being from the outset of life. There shall be no derogation from this principle except in cases of necessity and under the conditions laid down by this Law,”

    As Miss Anscombe pointed out, as long ago as 1958, “In present-day philosophy an explanation is required how an unjust man is a bad man, or an unjust action a bad one; to give such an explanation belongs to ethics; but it cannot even be begun until we are equipped with a sound philosophy of psychology. For the proof that an unjust man is a bad man would require a positive account of justice as a “virtue.” This part of the subject-matter of ethics, is however, completely closed to us until we have an account of what type of characteristic a virtue is – a problem, not of ethics, but of conceptual analysis – and how it relates to the actions in which it is instanced: a matter which I think Aristotle did not succeed in really making clear.” On this, I do not believe we are much further forward.

  • “Is that really true?”

    Yep, outside of ivory tower “bio-ethicists”, and what an Orwellian formulation that is in his case, like Singer, pro-aborts would sooner eat ground glass than defend an accurate account of what goes on daily in the abortion mills.

    From an abortion mill in New York:
    “Contrary to anti-choice rhetoric, abortion does not kill babies or children. Abortion does not kill persons. Abortion is only performed before a person is formed and long before viability or any consciousness, which is the ultimate determination of personhood.”

    http://www.libertywomenshealth.com/rtc.php

  • Where are our bishops? Where is the USCCB? Where is the outrage and, action as a result? PP must be defunded. There will be no better time.

  • Judging from their news releases, the USCCB could care less about this story:

    http://www.usccb.org/news/

    “1Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, 2saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; 3therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them.…”

    At least the Scribes and Pharisees gave their flocks empty words. Our Bishops do not even do that. I do not doubt that the word has gotten around that a Bishop being strong against abortion and taking actions to match his words, is not a good career move under the current Pontificate.

  • “Abortion is only performed before a person is formed…”

    Certainly, so preposterous an argument played no part in the debates that led to the Veil Law and would have had little traction in a country where the common term for an abortionist is « faiseuse d’anges » or “angel-maker.”

  • Wrong. Cecile Richards did not apologise. Nor did she come close to apologising.

    She did the following:

    A) Justify the practise of donating the tissue of the aborted babies for scientific research by likening it to regular organ donation. A complete falsehood because in regular organ donation scenarios, the person must sign a consent form. The aborted child has not consented, and never can. How stupid is this woman.

    B) Undermined the clear video evidence, as an example of the disgusting organisation she heads, by claiming the video was heavily edited. And those that never bother to lightly scratch the surface on this claim will believe her.

    My blood boils.

    Cecile Richards is a bald-faced liar.

    And I hope, for her sake, she doesn’t end up in that special seat that the devil has carved especially for her in the fiery depths of hell.

    An evil evil lady.

  • “Judging from their news releases, the USCCB could care less about this story:”

    But they are showing great strength of character in supporting the reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act.

  • “pro-aborts would sooner eat ground glass than defend an accurate account of what goes on daily in the abortion mills”

    I note that GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina (officially a “pro-choice” “moderate”) sent out the following tweet yesterday with a link to the PP video: “Whether you’re a pro-choice woman or a pro-life woman, this video is depraved.”

  • For Cecile Richards. “I believe Man’s soul is immortal…. and will be treated with justice in another life respecting it’s conduct in this.”
    -Benjamin Franklin

    The justice that is not present in this life will, without a doubt, be present and final in the life to come. Watching C.Richards in the clip called to mind a puppet on a string. She did her floppy dance for the audience while Satan worked the strings.

    Poor soul.
    Let our prayer ask God for her conversion before she becomes another satanic toy for eternity.
    While we’re at it… ask God for help defUNding Murder Inc. $500,000,000 a year! This country has been desensitized and it may need shock-treatment as to appreciate the gift of life.

  • What did the Lord God do to King Manasseh for making his children to walk through the fire in sacrifice to Molech? Will God change His response? Or does God remain the same? Jezebel was thrown out the window to the dogs for stealing Naboth the Jezreelite’s vineyard and arranging for his murder. What should Cecile Richards expect?

  • PS I oppose violence. My questions are rhetorical. But even Robespierre got what he gave. That’s how God set up the Universe. Sow death, reap death. Lord have mercy – and He will – on the unborn babies. But nobody should throw PP people out windows. Let God do that if He so elects.

  • “What should Cecile Richards expect?”
    .

    Thomas Meagher in a 1848 Dublin statement upon his conviction and death sentence said that we will all appear before another judge (God), one of infinite justice and mercy; and that many of the decisions of this fell World will be reversed.
    .

    I assume (you know what that means) the liberal anticipates oblivion: nothingness. They only have concerns about this world and its their sole duty to make it (what they feel is) better.
    .
    In charity, we should attempt to persuade her to convert; to repent; to do penance; to amend her life; and to do good works to glorify God. For that, we would be labeled haters.
    .
    Catholics would be concerned with the last things: death, judgment, Heaven or Hell. The PP apologists and democrat voters should be terrified about judgment: Whatsoever you did to the least of my brothers . . . FYI Christ isn’t working a set of scales: one mortal sin and you’re literally toast; voting to raise someone (who you hate) else’s taxes to pay more welfare isn’t one of the corporal works of mercy. Someone tell that to OH Gov. Kasich.

  • T.Shaw-

    “For that we (could) be labeled haters.”

    We already are labeled haters for admonishing our wayward neighbors. Oh well. We do what were asked and with love we try to help them.
    It’s very difficult when the word sin is not in their vocabulary.

    I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.

    Funny world…sort of.

  • One of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is “Admonish the sinner.” Charity for one’s neighbor includes concern for others’ eternal lives. By His life, death, and Resurrection Christ purchased for us the rewards of eternal life.
    .
    Christ descended from Heaven in order to convert us, not to promise us a “rose garden” in the here-and-now.
    .

    Mankind’s worst defeat (in the struggle for salvation) at Satan’s hand was when the demon deceived so, so many that he and sin do not exist.
    .

    Another gang that (I think) are in deep spiritual distress and denial believe that they have no sin and ergo are “arrogant (not poor) in spirit.”
    .

    Every time I see/hear the lie “Love wins” I silently scream “Sin wins.”
    .
    We live in a fallen World. It’s a Vail of Tears. And, it’s spiritually crash-diving faster than Hell. God help us.

  • T Shaw writes, “I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.”

    It is axiomatic that acts of the understanding are specified by their object and this should remind us that good and bad choices are no more equivalent than apprehension and misapprehension, truth and error are equivalent species of an identical genus; rather, bad choices are paralogisms, as Aristotle calls them (παραλογισμός = Unreasonable or fallacious). The good choice, “This – being such – is to be done,” is intelligible, because intelligent; the act of the bad will is a surd, ultimately unintelligible. True enough, we can often trace its causes to instinctive or dispositional factors, but it remains logically incoherent.

    That is why Aristotle insists that “All wicked men are ignorant of what they ought to do, and what they ought to avoid; and it is this very ignorance which makes them wicked and vicious. Accordingly, a man cannot be said to act involuntarily merely because he is ignorant of what it is proper for him to do in order to fulfil his duty. This ignorance in the choice of good and evil does not make the action involuntary; it only makes it vicious. The same thing may be affirmed of the man who is ignorant generally of the rules of his duty; such ignorance is worthy of blame, not of excuse” (EN 110b 25)

  • Thank you MPS.
    You’ve opened the door to this idea of bad choices vs. sin, with the help of Aristotle it’s ignorance of duty vs. due diligence.
    As always… great points and interesting food for thought. I will be better prepared to help them.

  • The “Love Wins” bumper sticker calls to my mind the final victory. Many who promote the message may not be aware of the author of Love. If so, the time will come when the meaning of the message might take them by surprise.

  • “I’ve been told by aquantices that they have never sinned. They just made bad choices that’s all.

    Funny world…sort of.”

    My thoughts exactly Phillip.

    Again, too many do not want to scratch the surface, in other words, they refuse to reason that a bad choice goes against what is universally right. Going against what is right or good is going against the natural order. Which is what we define as sin.

    Many choose to stay in a state of confusion.

    Funny world indeed.

  • “From an abortion mill in New York:
    “Contrary to anti-choice rhetoric, abortion does not kill babies or children. Abortion does not kill persons. Abortion is only performed before a person is formed and long before viability or any consciousness, which is the ultimate determination of personhood.””
    How do they know that the person is not acknowledging God in his transcendent soul while growing his body to worship and praise God in his immortal soul? How do they know? this elite intelligentsia is phishing and coming up with their wishful thinking that does not have a shred of proof or evidence, and is nothing more than hearsay in a court of law. Margaret Sanger said that we are” human weeds”. After God is removed from the public square, Planned Parenthood is saying that we are nothing more that a clump of cells. pink slime. This person is a constitutional posterity of George Washington and so are all other persons conceived. This person is also a constitutional posterity of Margaret Sanger. and now, I am a constitutional posterity of Cecile Richards and she would mutilate me as a clump of cells in a blender to get my stem cells. Freedom for all persons and our constitutional posterity.

  • Mary,

    The crux of pro-abortion and all liberal projects is that they, not God or facts or data or hundreds of years of culture, make the determinations. They not only deny God and objective truth, they usurp God’s Will as to who lives and who dies. They exhibit peak hypocrisy whenever they utter the words “death penalty.”
    .

    Soon they will be establishing death panels to rid the World of aged and infirm people.

  • Can I drive over the Coochs Bridge Road without remembering T. Shaw?
    The principle of separation of church and state is used to silence church members, while the unborn have their souls separated from their bodies. The Court has made atheism, abortion and sodomy of “We, the people”, “We, the people” who constitute the government, while catering to sodomites, atheists and abortionists. Equal Justice.

Hitler Wants His Royalties

Tuesday, July 21, AD 2015

 

A second video is out by those redoubtable video warriors at The Center for Medical Progress showing a Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc. ghoul demonstrating yet again that you can put a price on human life and human body parts.

Father Z gives us the details:

Never has the label “Big Business Abortion” been more appropriate for Planned Parenthood. HERE

Another video is out, showing a PP exec negotiating the price of body parts of babies.

Planned Parenthood receives million of YOUR tax dollars.

A new undercover video shows a top Planned Parenthood official discussing “less crunchy” techniques to get “whole specimens” and haggling over the price of fetus tissue sales because she wants “a Lamborghini.”

The video released Tuesday morning, the second put out by the Center for Medical Progress, features a woman identified as Dr. Mary Gatter, who was president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council until 2014 and now works in a leadership and advisory capacity at the local and national level of the organization. Over drinks, Gatter and the undercover activists discuss “specimen” prices, eventually settling at $100 for “intact tissue.”

    While we’re at it, a quondam member of Congress cannot make sense of our zombie congressional caucus, much less can an ordinary voter.

    I have to use prose to express myself:

    Then the Lord said, “The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me.”

    Then Abraham approached him and said: “Will you sweep away the righteous with the wicked? What has the cities done?”

    The Lord said, “The blood of their children cry out in pain, spilled from the warmth of their mothers’ bodies before ever tasting the air. Their bones groan under the weight of the coins paid for them that the inhabitants might squeeze another year of life into themselves.”

    Abraham stood silent a moment in thought.

    Finally he turned his back on the direction of the cities and spoke again: “Burn it all. The righteous will understand why.”

  • I am sure that the SS as they harvested parts of the Jews they murdered could honestly claim that they were a non-profit organization. I recall Rudolf Hoess, the commandant of Auschwitz, stressed in his defense that he had issued strict orders against his men personally stealing from their Jewish victims. He also claimed that he had regulations against abuse of the Jews. As he said to his men, they are sent here to be killed, not to be abused. A common tactic of monsters is to point to small ways in which they can present a somewhat normal façade, while seeking to ignore what they are doing that makes them monsters. Hence Planned Parenthood raises the mendacious defense of merely accepting donations, as if that makes any difference to their ghoulish selling, or “donating”, parts of the corpses of their tiny victims.

  • “Finally he turned his back on the direction of the cities and spoke again: “Burn it all. The righteous will understand why.””

    Jeremiah 32:35:

    And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.

  • I have spent, over the decades, many a hour pondering why the German people (Christians) could eagerly support and even adore a man of evil such as Adolph Hitler. Then I read a lot about the Nazi Docktors and Mengele, who also sought medical scientific knowledge by doing the most un-Godlike things to God’s innocent people. He fled to (sanctuary city?) Argentina after the war and became…… an abortionist.
    I fully believe that we in the USA have traveled the same path morally. In fact, one could argue that most of the German people may not have known of the evil they unleashed with their support of Hitler. We did and we do, so there is no excuse for America to be relieved of the damning responsibility of our part in a morally similar evil–even down to those conservatives who insist upon setting aside “cultural issues” until after each election. They fool no one.
    We have become a depraved evil nation; may God have pity on us.

  • Let’s be clear. There would be no legal abortion if voters did not elect Democrats. That continues to occur because self-identified Catholics continue to vote for Democrat politicians. If the “Catholic” vote abandoned the Democratic party tomorrow, PP would be defunded rather swiftly. It won’t happen, even after these horrific videos reveal the truth of abortion.

  • “There would be no legal abortion if voters did not elect Democrats.”
    I would like to believe that, but I don’t think the GOP of today has the courage of the Republicans of 1854.

  • Kyle’s is correct. It doesn’t excuse voting democrat. They’ll get it when they face St. Peter.

    Elections would be only indirectly effective to curtail abortion. So, forget the GOP. When the cowards had the WH and Congress, they couldn’t place sufficient numbers of pro-life judges. And, they fold like cheap cameras on judge nominations when the damned, hellion democrats control the WH and Congress.

    BLOODY RICHARDS, HYENA GRESE, HILLARY THE BEAST, PELOSI THE BUTCHER, MONSTER GATTER, NUCATOLA MENGELE, AND KOCH THE BITCH

    You can now say these names in one breath: Richards, Koch, Gatter, Neudeck, Clinton, Mandel, Wattleton, Grese, Sanger, Nucatola, Binz, Pelosi, Lachert, Bosel, Waters, and Bothe. Read descriptions of female Nazi concentration overseers, nurses and personnel – monsters like Ilse Koch, Irma Grese, Dorothea Binz, Greta Bosel, Herta Bothe, Hildegard Lachert, Ruth Neudeck, and Maria Mandel – and their actions, particularly those of nurses and doctors; listen to their crimes-against-humanity trial testimony or read it; learn about the acts of utter depravity, torture, sadism, and satanic cruelty they engaged in on a daily basis as the camps; and then remember speeches and recordings you have heard over the years from Faye Wattleton, Margaret Sanger, Cecile Richards, Mary Gatter, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, and politicains like Hilary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Maxine Waters. Consider the recent revelations of Planned Parenthood’s harvesting and sale of human body parts; their efforts to carefully crush babies without crushing their organs, and efforts to develop “less crunchy” techniques for insuring that hearts and livers and kidneys are not damaged as babies are cut, crushed and die.

    Consider that the Nazis were the model of efficiency in processing subhumans, including over 6,000,000 Jews through their “camps.” Upon arrival, unless deemed extraordinarily beautiful, all children and babies were sent for immediate gassing and execution. Shortly after arrival, all prisoners were shorn of all their hair. The hair was made into felt and thread; made into socks for submarine crews, ignition mechanisms in bombs, ropes and cords for ships; and used in pillows and mattresses for soldiers, and, since it expands and contracts uniformly, it was used in delayed action bombs. Camp commanders were required to submit monthly reports about how much hair had been collected. Human skulls were made into ashtrays. Lampshades were made of human skin, particularly human skin that had an interesting or beautiful tattoo. Human flesh was made into soap. And gold teeth were pulled from the corpses in the gas chambers.

    More than any other product or commodity of the money-making Nazi Camps, the gold recovered daily from the teeth of the dead, amounting to millions of dollars, illustrates the evil of the Third Reich. In one camp alone an average gold day was 18 pounds. In 1930s dollars that is $10,000.00 per day; in today’s value, for this one camp, that is over $300,000.00 per day.

    Then consider the various nicknames given to the Nazi women – The Beast, The Bitch, Bloody, The Witch, Butcher, The Hyena – and wonder if these Nazi women were better – in a variety of senses of “better”- than today’s women of Planned Parenthood. The Nazis, although they killed over 11,000,000 persons, cannot hold a candle to the tens of millions dead here and around the world which can be laid at the feet of the women of Planned Parenthood.

    And if in reading about any of these Nazi women you stop and have a startled intake of breath at the sheer inhumanity of their actions, just review Planned Parenthood abortion techniques and organ harvesting procedures, and then go back and listen again to the recording of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s very own Dr. Mengele; watch the video of Planned Parenthood Medical Director Mary Gatter discussing the “less crunchy” techniques and her need for a new Lamborghini; check out the medical and scientific facts of the pain capability of children in their mothers’ wombs; and you will realize that these Nazi women were rank amateurs in pain, sadism, torture, and death compared to the women of Planned Parenthood.

    When you learn that on an average day Auschwitz personnel removed about 18 pounds of gold from the teeth of gassed Jews, you will realize that cleansing the population of Margaret Sanger’s “human undergrowth” was one thing, and making money off the dead was another; that “follow the money” explains the alleged lofty humanitarian goals of Planned Parenthood in not crushing an unborn child’s heart and liver; and that the women of Planned Parenthood, today’s Bloody Beasts of Planned Parenthood, take death dealing, genocide and crimes against humanity to a whole new level of consummate evil.

We want the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our (constitutional) posterity”…We want God. and Blessings of Liberty on the Little Sisters of the Poor in their quest for freedom and the Blessings of Liberty

Julius:  The new made Adam!  And this is how you see man?  Noble, beautiful, unafraid?

Michelangelo:  How else should I see him?

Julius:  As he is! Corrupt and evil! His hands dripping with blood, destined for damnation! Your painting is beautiful but false.

Michelangelo:  I cannot change my conception.

Julius:  You’ve taught me not to waste my time trying to change your conceptions.  How did you arrive at this?

Michelangelo:  I thought …  my idea for the panel was that man’s evil he learned from himself, not from God.

Julius:  (quietly) yes…

Michelangelo:  I wanted to paint man, as He was first created.  Innocent, still free of sin, grateful for the gift of life.

Screenplay, The Agony and the Ecstasy

Kevin Williamson at National Review Online nails it in reference to the revelation that Planned Parenthood Worse Than Murder, Inc, is trafficking in some of the corpses of their murder victims:

Human beings are not lumps of labor. They are not capital, consumer goods, taxpayers, commodities — or meat. The philosophy of Planned Parenthood (and Eros is a jealous god) is the philosophy of men-as-meat, and that philosophy is not long compatible with liberty and human dignity. When Erich Fromm wrote his famous book on the dream of religion without deity, he titled it “You Shall Be as Gods.” The truth is that without an understanding of the uniqueness of human beings and the consequent value of every human life, you will not be as gods — you will be as meat. And meat gets butchered, packaged, and sold. It gets stuffed in the freezer.

  • “When men have been deluded into believing that Man is merely an animal with pretensions, do not be shocked when they act upon that belief.”
    So true, but then, this was the main theme of another “scientific consensus” (are you listening Pope Francis?) that dared to claim (biodiversity) that all species are equal.
    We heard nary a peep from either Rome or the USCCB, while many liberal “catholic” celebrities signed on publicly to such heresy. My 4th grade teacher’s manual told us that “A boy a dog, is a rat.” Body parts indeed!
    This was the breakdown that helped abortion and human parts sales to become morally justified in the minds of many…but not a word from the pulpits.
    Today, we are chasing more “scientific” nonsense to save the planet, while body parts and souls are being sold to those tainted with the smoke of Satan, and Rome says, “Ho Hum.”

  • *points at this horror*
    This is why I freak out about people complaining about capitalism. Capitalism isn’t the problem– it doesn’t exist, as a system. It’s like how zero isn’t a number, it’s a description of a lack of numbers. Capitalism isn’t a system of economics, it’s what exists when you have no system to your economics.
    Any evil is an expression of what else is around– your laws and culture respect all humans as people? Then the free exchange in keeping with those laws will do the same.
    It gets confused, because the alternative systems that get offered are usually package deals of world philosophy that they don’t especially want to admit are anything but an economic system.
    Guns don’t cause violence, guns are used by those who have chosen to do violence.

    ******

    Pope Francis tried to hit a note like this– hopefully, it rang clear to someone, because it sure as heck missed here.

  • Still no word from USCCB or Pope Francis on the buying and selling of baby parts. I expect to not hear anything about it at mass of course. Thank God for Fr. Pavone and Priests for Life for their active role in getting the word out and how to respond.

  • In a way it is surprising that people are shocked. $$$ for murder all these years.

  • Sergei Bulgakov, the Russian Orthodox theologian, philosopher and economist drew attention to the Western practice of referring to workers as “hands.” He recalls that in Russia, serfs were referred to as “souls.”

  • in Russia, serfs were referred to as “souls…”

    In my observations of the Soviet system, Russian serfs ought to be referred to as “poor” souls.
    Cheer up, we’re heading there.

  • “Souls” used to be sold in Russia prior to the emancipation of the serfs at about the time Lincoln freed the slaves. An estate would be advertised as coming with 200 “souls” for example. As usual with Russia, pretty words papered over a very ugly reality.

  • “As usual with Russia, pretty words papered over a very ugly reality.”

    Ah yes, the old painting evil with a gilded halo works most every time. Well there was that incident of Satan quoting scripture to God in the desert….

  • One day there comes a time in everyone’s life when they have to come to terms with the reality that some people are plain evil. And these same people will do anything for money, power, self.

    No amount of mental gymnastics can excuse this or gloss it over.

    For me It is a hard truth to learn, when I have been brought up to see the good in everyone.

    Unfortunately some people have permanently lost this good.

Ghouls for Profit

Friday, July 17, AD 2015

 

Christopher Johnson, a non-Catholic who has taken up the cudgels so frequently for the Church that I have named him Defender of the Faith, in a post entitled appropriately EINSATZGRUPPEN, looks at the revelation that Planned Parenthood is making money off the corpses of some of the babies they murder:

Initially, I wasn’t particularly shocked by this story:

An undercover video shot last summer by a new pro-life organization called Center for Medical Progress purports to show the chief medical officer of Planned Parenthood of America talking on camera about how to abort a child intact so the child’s body parts can be transferred for medical and scientific research.

The video was shot by a team led by David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress posing as representatives of a start up biotech firm in the business of buying fetal body parts for medical and scientific research. Daleiden told Breitbart News, “It as remarkably easy to make contact with Planned Parenthood” to discuss procurement of fetal tissue.

I mean, it’s Murder, Inc., it’s what they do.  But the truly scary thing about this story is that the more you think about it and the deeper you dig, the more horrifying this all eventually becomes.  Satan, and I’m not being at all figurative here, is in the details.  Like these.

The video purports to show, between bites of lunch and sips of wine, Dr. Deborah Nucatola saying, “A lot of people want intact hearts these days, because they are looking for specific nodes.”

She adds: “Yesterday was the first time she said people wanted lungs. And then, like I said, always as many intact livers as possible. People just want…some people want lower extremities, too. I mean that’s easy. I don’t know what they’re doing with it, I guess they want muscle.”

Or these.

[Nucatola] talks about pricing. “You know, I would throw a number out, and I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100 [per specimen] depending on the facility and what’s involved.”

In the video, Nucatola goes into great detail about ordering specific body parts and how the abortionist goes about ensuring those parts are not damaged in the abortion. She says the abortionist uses “ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”

And then she talks about the baby’s head. “The kind of rate-limiting step is procedure is calvarium.

Know what a calvarium is?  There should be one on top of your neck.

Calvarium — the head — is basically the biggest part. Most of the other stuff can come out intact.”

Nucatola says the doctor has to be “just kind of cognizant of where you put your graspers, you try to intentionally go above and below the thorax, so that, you know, we’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part, I’m going to basically crush below, and I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

Nucatola explains how the position of the baby can be changed so that she can be extracted up to the head and then collapse the head so that all the other body parts can be extracted without damage.

Think about that for a second.  The “chief medical officer” of Murder, Inc. doesn’t want it’s accredited teppanyaki chefs to go in there and just start indiscriminately slicing and dicing.  MI has a bottom line to think about.

They’re harvesting them.  The bastards are harvesting them.

But they’re “harvesting them” for medical research.  They’re trying to save lives.

So?

Oh, come on now, Johnson.  You’ve just been diagnosed with some kind of terminal illness; the doctors tell you that you have 3 to 5 years left.  Optimistically.

But there’s this treatment deriving from the research on or the direct use of fetal tissue that could extend your life be decades or even cure you.  Are you seriously claiming that you would refuse such treatment if you knew where it came from?

Yeah, pretty much.  Prolonging my existence is not a high, personal priority right now.  And if it necessitates killing other human beings, it’s far too high a price to pay anyway.

Will this story have legs?  The Washington Post has picked it up so we’ll see.

  • “When the time comes, as it surely will, when we face that awesome moment, the final judgment, I’ve often thought, as Fulton Sheen wrote, that it is a terrible moment of loneliness. You have no advocates, you are there alone standing before God — and a terror will rip your soul like nothing you can imagine. But I really think that those in the pro-life movement will not be alone. I think there’ll be a chorus of voices that have never been heard in this world but are heard beautifully and clearly in the next world — and they will plead for everyone who has been in this movement. They will say to God, ‘Spare him, because he loved us!'”

    Another advocate… Jesus himself. When you gave testimony on my behalf while you were on earth. Now I will give testimony on your behalf before my Father. (Poorly remembered).

    One more for pro-life warriors; “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, my loved one in whom I delight. I will endow him with my Spirit and he will proclaim justice.”. Matthew 12:18.

    Let us serve Him in serving the poorest… the unborn. Talk about Social Justice issues.

  • As far as I know, even Mengele didn’t sell the body parts of precious humans, at least before he fled to (where else?) Argentina to become (what else?) an abortionist….

  • This national outrage happens because millions of catholic Liberals (peace and justice!) vote democrat. This includes so-called catholic pundits who never write about 50 millions of unborn baby murders, but spill oceans of ink and massed gigabytes on dishonest, uncharitable detractions against good people falsely based on Abu Graibh!, AGW!!, guns!!!, illegal invaders!!!!, water-boarding!!!!.

  • 40+ years of this garbage, and it’s still legal.

    I’m not surprised. At all. there was the ghoul in Philadelphia who was murdering babies born alive, and the Pittsburgh Tribune Review – the libertarian paper owned by the late Richard Mellon Scaife – a HUGE Planned Parenthood supporter – had to spin the story to show support for abortion.

    Scaife ran a front page editorial saying “Don’t defund Planned Parenthood.” Scaife was a hypocrite. Scaife hated it when owners of pro sports teams asked for money to build ballparks, etc. but when it was Scaife’s pet issue – abortion – he wanted government money to fund it.

    The elites have always been comfortable with abortion. It kills off the potential rif raf. This is why people as different as Ted Kennedy and Barry Goldwater supported abortion.

    Notice the silence from the USCCB.

  • Synonymous; liberial / hypocrite
    Painting with a wide nozzle you say…?
    Damn right!
    They have earned it!

  • There is no substantive difference between a liberal progressive Democrat who supports Planned Parenthood and a radical Islamic Jihadist terrorist.

  • “There is no substantive difference between a liberal progressive Democrat who supports Planned Parenthood and a radical Islamic Jihadist terrorist.”

    Well Paul, a wee bit perhaps. One dies for being out of their club, the others, just for daring to be.

  • I stand corrected, Don L.

  • Gentlemen, just to clarify, Scaife was no liberal. He was a libertarian and an abortionist and a homosexualist. I canceled my paper subscription after that front page editorial.

    Many of us grew up with a big Sunday morning paper. I haven’t bought one in years.

  • But there’s this treatment deriving from the research on or the direct use of fetal tissue that could extend your life be decades or even cure you. Are you seriously claiming that you would refuse such treatment if you knew where it came from?
    .
    I know I’ve mentioned before, my mom is a breast cancer survivor.
    Back before I was married, I had an argument with someone who knew she was still being treated for it– the topic was the “miracle” if fetal stem cells.
    That person, for motives that are not clearly manipulative, asked roughly the same thing about my mom.
    Being me, I asked her.
    Answer?
    There’s no disease she could possibly have that would make it alright to chop up babies.

  • Penguins Fan– sounds like a “only consequences I choose” libertarian, AKA “Liberal-tarian.”
    Babies resulting from sex would interfere with the “freedom”to choose whatever they wanted, so the babies must not be “really” there until some later point.
    I’m easily annoyed by libertarian theories*, but the ones that deny responsibility to even consider unintended but direct results are probably the most outrageous.
    .
    *excessive idealism, especially if the theories ignore important variables

  • During the second or third time I watched the video of Dr. Nucatola describing the ghoulish business of Planned Parenthood, the lampshade making of the Nazis came to mind.

  • Foxfier.

    Similarly my sister in law, who is battling MS, was devastated when George Bush Jr. placed a cease order on frozen embryo’s to be used for research on a possible cure for MS.

    When I carefully tried to support the former Presidents position I was shot at with a barrage of “Christian insult’s,” which I was ready for. There family, and she is steadily loosing ambulatory function. I understand their frustration, and tried to call them to look at human tissue research, primarily post birth tissues, which at the time was showing great potential.

    We try as best we can to have them reason as your beautiful mom reasoned. Not everyone can look at the sacredness of life in the same light.

  • I once chanced on an article by Sir Dugald Baird, written when he was the Regius Professor of Midwifery at the University of Glasgow. He went on to become the President of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynaecologists

    “In India, though Nehru (Times, 11th December 1963) and his Government recognized the dangers of population increase and supported a policy of birth control, in practice in the second five-year plan for India only $10 million was allocated for population control as against $14 million for malaria control, a measure which, by lowering death rates quickly, could further aggravate the population crisis and reduce the standard of living, in that more capital, skills, and experience are absorbed in looking after children and young people and less is available for industrial development.”

    Why, I wondered, did a person holding such views not only choose medicine as a profession, but midwifery as his specialty.

    Needless to say, he was a strong supporter of the 1967 Abortion Act.

  • A slip of the pen – He was Regius Professor of Medecine at the University of Aberdeen, not Glasgow.

  • Third time lucky – Regius Professor of Midwifery at the University of Aberdeen from 1937 to 1965.

    He was granted the Freedom of the City and The Dugald Baird Centre for Research on Women’s Health at Aberdeen Maternity Hospital is named in his honour

  • Sorry I have to disagree, PWP.

    “There is no substantive difference between a liberal progressive Democrat who supports Planned Parenthood and a radical Islamic Jihadist terrorist.”
    .

    There are two massive differences: 1. a liberal helps kill 1,500,000 unborn Americans each year; a hadji get fewer than 20. 2. A liberals is a real threat to our country and our way of life. Hadji not so much.

    Goodness, that was covered on day one, two and three of catechism class in the 1940s. We may do (or assist or enable) no evil–no matter how good the result.

    Frankly, entering my ninth decade of life, in fairly good health and looking at the way this world has been wilfully and radically corrupted (especially inside the Church) I would refuse any miracle science that promised to extend my life substantially.
    Getting old with a strong faith is sufficient for me.

  • thanks to Christopher Johnson and Donald McClarey for making it all so explicit , including the Nuremberg historical evidence.
    I understand there are homeschoolers who use this blog . The education of many young voters has been lacking, especially on the history of the 20th century. In order for there to be real cultural re-formation in this country, we have to educate the young. They are not aware of the what has happened under nazism, communism or islam. We can go on very long with our voting public so undereducated. I think the internet and these kinds of blog post ( also “educate the pope” post) are a great boon.

  • sorry- can NOT go on very long (under-educated)
    We also could use some emphasis on the good done by Catholicism and by America.

  • I understand there are homeschoolers who use this blog .

    Yo. *waves*
    Although the use is quite indirect so far– the reading level here is a bit beyond the “still impressed by reading street signs” level. 😉
    Jimmy Akin’s blog, and ones like it, were my introduction to there being anything substantive to learn about Catholicism– and resources to learn it.
    I view commenting and writing to be paying it forward– if I can get just one other person to see some of the “oh, that is cool… response that I did, or even just help others and get the result….

  • To T Shaw,
    .
    You’re late in correcting me. Don L already beat you to the punch. 😉

  • Atheism imposed by the government. The denial that the human being is simultaneously imbued with a rational, immortal human soul with sovereign personhood at creation and procreation. A person who can and does love God by his very existence must be acknowledged as a human person by all men created equal and acknowledged by the Court. To love God and one’s neighbor as oneself, one must acknowledge the humanity of the neighbor. Atheism imposed by the government. “We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal and endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these rights are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” George Washington’s constitutional posterity is being aborted and used for cosmetics, research and sold for body parts. I saw the catalogue and prices. The National Catholic Register did an article on this catalogue almost two decades ago. It is in their archives. I may try to find it. It is on my hard drive.

  • Abby Johnson also witnessed this happening . There are persons now denying that this is happening.

  • I await a calling down from Rome (a Michael Voris metaphor) chastising PP for making a profit.

  • Waiting to hear from the Pope about this as well as gay marriage legalization. He has opinions on everything else.
