To me, the most shocking moments in the Planned Parenthood videos are the several instances where people associated with the organization appear to talk about killing babies who have been born alive, and selling their organs. I could hardly believe that this was true, and yet it clearly seems to be implied by PP employees themselves. If true, I thought it was a major scandal, worthy of criminal prosecution.
Evidently I was naive. Many people, apparently, already knew about this practice. In fact, killing babies and selling their body parts is officially supported by the Democratic Party. We know this because of the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act, which has passed the House. The Act declares that “If an abortion results in the live birth of an infant, the infant is a legal person for all purposes under the laws of the United States, and entitled to all the protections of such laws.” It makes it a crime to kill a baby that has been born alive in the course of an attempted abortion–which, I take it, would include situations, as described in the Planned Parenthood videos, where the abortion appointment comes too late, and the baby is born in the normal course before he or she can be aborted.
I would have thought that killing a baby is already proscribed as murder, but the House doesn’t want to take any chances. What is the Obama administration’s position on the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act? You can read it here:
H.R. 3504 [the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act] would impose new legal requirements related to the provision of abortion services in certain circumstances, which would likely have a chilling effect, reducing access to care.
If the President were presented with H.R. 3134 or H.R. 3504, he would veto them.
So Barack Obama is officially in favor of killing babies that are born alive, and selling their organs.
For many years, I wrote nothing about abortion, never having taken much interest in the issue. But the Planned Parenthood videos have been an eye-opener, for me as for many others. I had no idea that such corruption is not only being permitted, but is financed by a half billion taxpayer dollars. If the Democrats, hungry to profit a few measly dollars from the sale of body parts, can’t draw the line at murdering babies who are born alive, they are far sicker than I realized. Let’s get the House bill through the Senate, and let Obama fulfill his threat to veto it. That will make for an interesting Rose Garden press conference.
