The undercover videos of Planned Parenthood showing unthinkable behavior have brought much discussion about whether taxpayer money – $500,000,000 – should be used to help fund them when they do only a few medical exams (no mammograms) and dispense birth control. Other community clinics offer far more services (but no abortions) and do not receive taxpayer funding.
The videos show Planned Parenthood workers discussing how they rearrange the baby prior to delivery in order to maximize the “value” of the baby’s organs. In some cases, the baby is delivered alive then killed by carefully crushing some less marketable organs in order to preserve the valuable organs. In one video, the organs are shown on a pie plate as a technician moves them around. It’s reminiscent of someone using chopsticks to move Chinese food around. It’s absolutely sickening to listen to the Planned Parenthood people laugh about the procedures while they’re eating their salad and sipping wine, and negotiating prices for the organs.
Americans were outraged that such barbaric atrocities were occurring in a civilized society, let alone that taxpayer money was funding such an organization that was profiting from the sale of organs, which is illegal. Americans put pressure on their Representatives and Senators to stop the funding and investigate the apparent illegalities.
So far, Senate Leader Mitch McConnell has been unable to get enough votes to support defunding Planned Parenthood in the Budget. Obama has said he will veto any Budget that doesn’t include the funding.
Yesterday House members voted on a Bill that would clarify that it is an act of murder to kill a baby who survives an abortion. Unbelievably 177 House Reps voted AGAINST this bill!
