The story of Planned Parenthood was already a grand deception. Under the guise of “protecting women’s health,” the organization has created a culture of abortion for convenience and the devaluation of human life. Now, we see just how sick this organization is as another video has surfaced in which a high-ranking Planned Parenthood official is caught negotiating the price of aborted baby parts… all so she can buy a Lamborghini!
Last week, the first undercover video was released which showed “a top abortion doctor discussing the sale of fetal body parts while drinking wine and eating salad.” As Fox News reports, Barack Obama has yet to comment on anything related to the Planned Parenthood issue despite the fact that selling human tissue for profit is illegal.
Now, a second video has been released which shows the former president of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council discussing the price of certain tissues. Here’s the video which was released by the Center for Medical Progress.
And here’s a summary report by Fox News:
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott called for an investigation into Planned Parenthood following the release of the first video on July 14, and he released a statement Tuesday commenting on the new video.
“This latest video showing yet another Planned Parenthood senior official negotiating the price of unborn baby body parts is more than just callous and morally bereft, it may be criminal,” Abbott said in a statement. “The video appears to directly contradict Planned Parenthood’s statement last week that they do not earn a profit for selling body parts. Today’s new grotesque revelations necessitate that Texas expand its investigation into this abhorrent practice.”
Father Frank Pavone of Priests For Life spoke in stark terms about Planned Parenthood Tuesday morning.
“In the light of what they do to kill children and sell their parts, it is clearly immoral to give any support or transact any business with Planned Parenthood,” Pavone told Fox News.
Now, the real question is… what are we going to do about it? Planned Parenthood receives millions and millions of dollars straight from our own pockets! We are funding their terrible activities with our own tax dollars, and this must stop.
As One News Now reports, these videos may finally lead to some action:
Republicans in Congress have repeatedly pushed to pull federal funding for Planned Parenthood and Rep. Louie Gohmert, responding to the videos, said that officials need to be held responsible for their “grotesque” actions captured on film.
“It is utterly despicable,” the congressman said, “that an executive at Planned Parenthood would cruelly joke about the remains of precious lives by haggling over their body parts using terms such as – ‘lowball’ and her desire for a ‘Lamborghini.’ These are human lives – not specimens.”
Carter Snead, who is a law professor at Notre Dame, wrote a scathing piece on the actions of Planned Parenthood noting that “like any big business, Planned Parenthood protects its brand and promotes its agenda in the political and cultural spheres.”
Crushing human bodies. Evacuating human skulls. Harvesting human vital organs for a fee. This is what Planned Parenthood does. This is its business.
And business is booming. Planned Parenthood is the largest abortion provider in the world. According to its most recent annual report, in 2013 Planned Parenthood performed 327,653 abortions – an increase from previous years, despite an overall nationwide decline in abortions. This constitutes 94 percent of all “pregnancy services” provided during this time period. At an average price of $500 per abortion sold (according to various sources including Planned Parenthood’s website), this amounts to roughly $164 million per year (almost 54 percent of its non-government health services revenue for 2013). U.S. taxpayers provide Planned Parenthood with $540 million per year.
We are talking about innocent human life here… life that is killed by the hundreds of thousands each and every year. It must stop, and yet there are many companies that continue to donate to Planned Parenthood.
Please spread the word. Call your congressman and senators. Now is the time to defund Planned Parenthood once and for all.
