Planned Parenthood has been caught on tape selling the body parts of aborted children.
In a lengthy investigation, Planned Parenthood Federation Senior Director of Medical Services Dr. Deborah Nucatola, is recorded discussing the sale of dead babies. She calmly nibbles on a nice green salad and sips a bit of wine as she tells the buyers (actors, posing as medical researchers) all about her organization’s efforts to deliver intact limbs and organs to interested parties.
A few excerpts:
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.
I’d say a lot of people want liver. And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.
Mysteriously, these “clumps of cells” are suddenly considered identifiable bodies with limbs and organs.
And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it’s not vertex. So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end.
In case you’re wondering, the calvarium is piece of the skull. According to Nucatola, as the abortionist is executing the child, he will sometimes “evacuate” it a certain way so the baby’s head can later be sold for money.
Further demonstrating Planned Parenthood’s high standards and attention to detail, the depraved salad-chomping sociopath even admits to having no idea what some of these buyers plan to do with the “items” they purchase:
Some people want lower extremities, too. I mean that’s simple. That’s easy. I don’t know what they’re going to do with it, though.
Of course, it’s actually a federal crime to traffic aborted babies, so she stipulates that they must be careful:
At the national office, we have a Litigation and Law Department which just really doesn’t want us to be the middle people for this issue right now. But I will tell you that behind closed doors these conversations are happening with the affiliates.
Hint: Next time make sure there isn’t a camera behind that closed door, you vile huckster.
She discusses the transaction like she’s at a yard sale dealing old furniture and picture frames. This isn’t just “disturbing” or “inappropriate,” this is a vision of pure evil. These Planned Parenthood officials are warped, corrupt perverts. They are crooks as bad as, or worse than, any war criminal or genocidal dictator. And I say that not just because of this video, but because if they weren’t selling dead babies, they’d be throwing them in dumpsters as “medical waste,” and reaping enormous profits anyway. Is one worse than the other? Do we have to choose? It’s like asking if I’d rather have Ted Bundy or Charles Manson spend the night at my house. Both options are sick and terrifying.
I am incredibly angry as I write this. I try not to be, usually. Writing angry is often like going to the grocery store hungry; you’re bound to make choices you’ll regret later. But I anticipate that much of the media will ignore this story, so I have to write about it. And if I’m going to write about Planned Parenthood selling dead children, or Planned Parenthood doing anything else, it’s impossible to be anything but angry in the process. This is the most wretched and contemptible organization in the world, and I don’t think I ever want to get to the point where they don’t make me angry when I think about them.
So, rather than attempt to write a cohesive essay, I’d just like to pass along a few individual points that spring to mind as I contemplate the latest wickedness born from the hideous deformity known as Planned Parenthood:
1. Pro-lifers: Don’t be shocked by this story.
I was, at first, but we shouldn’t be. Be outraged, be infuriated, be saddened, be heartbroken, but don’t be shocked.
Indeed, it is time to stop being surprised by the cruelty and barbarism of the abortion industry. Unless you are a liberal, or a pitiful, emasculated, “socially moderate” conservative who justifies your own moral cowardice by pontificating about the “gray areas” surrounding the wholesale butchery of infant humans, you really should not be shocked by anything these infanticide merchants do.
You know what abortion is, don’t you?
You know that Planned Parenthood might pretend it’s primary function is handing out condoms and mammogram referrals, but you know its business is abortion. You know that, by far, its primary source of revenue is abortion. That is, aside from the half a billion dollars in tax money it receives every year. You know that it rakes in ridiculous profits from abortion, and pays its executive hundreds of thousands of dollars a year from abortion, and earns its title as the nation’s largest and richest abortion provider by performing over 300,000 abortions annually.
You know all of this, so you shouldn’t have been shocked when a Planned Parenthood official went on the record to endorse post-birth abortions. And you shouldn’t have been taken aback when Planned Parenthood was caught covering up rape and child molestation and sex trafficking. And you shouldn’t have been stunned when Planned Parenthood was exposed lying to women and manipulating them into getting abortions. And you shouldn’t be astonished when Planned Parenthood continues to commit massive financial fraud and abuse.
We are dealing with a conglomerate of serial killers, preying upon the poor and the desperate, raking in billions of blood-soaked dollars and building its criminal empire upon the mangled, rotting corpses of dead children, and yet we hear these stories and still think, “Oh, wow, I can’t believe they did that.” Well, believe it. Believe all of it. And realize that for every despicable thing we hear about, there are a million others we never will.
But I suppose our perpetual “shock” at Planned Parenthood is kind of like the viewer who watches a documentary about Auschwitz and comes away calling it “eye opening.” In one sense it is, but in another, it ought not be. This was a place where Nazis murdered human beings in bulk. That’s why the concentration camps existed, to exterminate people. What do you think it’s going to look like? Once you understand what they did, how can you be additionally shocked by the peripheral details? They gassed women and children and burned their naked bodies like heaps of garbage. Why would you be “shocked” to find out that, in the meantime, they also tormented and starved them?
And that’s how it is with abortion clinics. Each one is a for-profit concentration camp, and together it took them less than half a century to murder 50 million human beings. In fact, the similarities between the Nazis and the abortion industry run even deeper, as the former were also known to chop their victims up and sell parts of them for profit.
It is a shocking thing when looked at on its own, but we should all try, as hard as it is, to confront and comprehend the fact that the abortion industry is evil right to its core. Nothing is beneath them. Nothing. Once you get into the business of massacring children, you have sunk to the lowest, darkest level a person can possibly descend to. When we accept this reality, these kinds of stories are suddenly far from shocking. They are instead tragically, horribly, shamefully predictable.
2. Abortion only matters when it furthers the left’s agenda.
Whenever a Republican even says something politically incorrect about abortion, the media sensationalizes it like it’s Sept. 11, 2001, and every Republican politician in the country is expected to officially condemn the insensitive comment. But, as we’ve seen time and again, Planned Parenthood can coordinate an elaborate and sustained criminal conspiracy — this time involving the harvesting of human organs — and it’s treated like a minor news item, if even a news item at all.
Speaking of not being shocked, we should finally come to terms with the fact that the news media effectively doesn’t exist, and hasn’t for quite a while. To report the news and hold our elected leaders accountable, one must have integrity. Unfortunately, integrity is in short supply in our culture, and with rare exception, it’s all but extinct in Old Media. Most of these people have no dignity, no pride in their work, no hunger to get to the truth and reveal that truth to the world. They are not in the news business. They are in the entertainment/propaganda business. Propatainment, let’s call it. Just don’t call it news.
Now, if by some miracle the media takes this latest Planned Parenthood scandal and does with it what it should — making it headline news for days, demanding that politicians speak out about it, holding the abortion industry accountable — I will gladly eat my words.
But I just have a feeling I won’t be feasting on any of these words anytime soon. Call me cynical.
3. Republicans, grow a spine.
Conservatives have been extremely ineffectual at combating the greatest evil of our time, abortion. Mostly, this is because they are afraid of the issue, or strangely unconcerned with it. But if the movement can do anything — if it even has a pulse — it ought to be able to use this horrific story to finally, once and for all, defund Planned Parenthood.
We should be outlawing abortion, conducting mass arrests of Planned Parenthood employees, and charging its executives and “doctors” with thousands of counts of first degree murder, but if we can’t do that, then at least we shouldn’t be giving these monsters our money. I know most Republicans won’t speak out eloquently against the practice of abortion, but for God’s sake, at a minimum every Republican politician in the country should be screaming from the rooftops that taxpayers should stop being forced to subsidize this criminal enterprise.
Liberals will target private businesses and have them shut down or severely sanctioned if their owners simply say something they disagree with, so can’t we accomplish the withdraw of tax funds from a business that repeatedly breaks the law, illegally sells the corpses of dead children, and, oh by the way, also murders those same children at a clip of about 350,000 a year? Can’t we do that?
Republicans, grow a spine. Do what the Democrats would do and have done in much less urgent situations. Hammer on this issue every day until something happens. Force liberal politicians to not only fight for Planned Parenthood, but to fight for the half a billion dollars we give it every year. Force them to. Beat them over the head with it until they cry. In these economic times, do you think the majority of voters actually want to give their money to a wealthy corporation that aborts infants and then packages their legs and livers into little gift bags and sells them to scientists at a $100 a unit? Do you think most average Americans care to continue being the defacto sugar daddy to Cecil Richards and her cavalry of baby-killing minions?
No, they don’t. So defund these blood thirsty maniacs. If you make a huge deal out of it, if you refuse to let it go, if you put liberals in the position of defending these heinous butchers, you can win. So do it. Don’t let the Democrats make idiots out of you again by managing to remove tax exempt status from churches before you manage to remove tax funded status from infanticide mercenaries.
Please. I don’t ask much of you people, but get this done. Just do it. No excuses.
4. To the pro-abortion crowd: I know you aren’t all gone.
You still have a soul. You have your humanity. You have a mind. I know you do. And I know when you hear about things like this, your first reaction, deep down in your gut, is to cringe. And it’s only for a moment, I know. It’s a flinch. It’s a brief relapse back to the days when you were the kind of person who knew it was wrong to kill people and hawk their body parts for profit. You knew that once. Maybe when you were very little, before the liberal propagandists got to you, but you knew it.
So, listen, just live in that cringe for a while longer. That instinctual repulsion you experienced — let it simmer in your head. Don’t push it back down as quickly as you usually do, drowning your conscience with vapid slogans about a “right to choose” and “my body, my choice” and all the rest of it. There’s plenty of time for that, but all I’m asking is that you watch the video of the woman eating her salad while she describes crushing a child carefully so as to preserve his internal organs for resale on the black market, and meditate. View the footage, and when that voice in your head says, “ew, this is horrifying,” listen to it. Hear it out.
View the footage, and when that voice in your head says, “ew, this is horrifying,” listen to it.
As you’re listening, reflect on why you’re horrified. Is it the selling of dead babies? Or is it the fact of dead babies? Imagine them scalping a bag of severed arms and scooped out kidneys to men in lab coats. Then imagine them throwing the rest in a dumpster out back. Feel repulsed by both scenarios. Feel outraged. Feel it there in your own mind, where all of your ridiculous rationalizations don’t matter, and all of the things you say to your friends or when you’re arguing with me on Facebook hold no weight. Feel it in that part of your soul that still rolls its eyes and shakes its head every time you justify the extermination of innocent life with some insipid talking point. Feel it where your driveling nonsense about “bodily autonomy” gives way to the inevitable realization that all of the feminist rhetoric in the world can’t mitigate the abominable nature of this institution you so valiantly and unconvincingly defend.
And if your conscience is so thoroughly silenced at this point that you, in fact, do not react like a human being to horrors like this, then try a different mental exercise. Pretend that woman in the video is talking about dolphins or puppies or seals or spider monkeys. Pretend she works for a billion dollar corporation that hacks baby gold retrievers to pieces and sells their paws and teeth and fur. Pretend she’s not talking about the liver of a baby, but of an adorable seafaring mammal or polar bear or spotted owl.
You certainly wouldn’t be merely calling for an end to funding of this organization; you’d be insisting that it be prosecuted and its facilities shutdown and demolished.
Now try to imagine for a moment the radical possibility that a baby’s life is as valuable as a bird’s or a dog’s. Then travel another step down this scary road. Ask yourself if, perhaps, the baby is more valuable?
Ask the question. That’s all.
Or just stay there in your delusions.
Go to your grave as a person who condoned the holocaust of infants, and feel the scorn and shame of history and the judgment of God Almighty.
The choice is yours.
In the meantime, I will fight you with every ounce of energy I have, because you are wrong, and there is blood on your hands.
