Planned Parenthood Video Underscores Gruesome Practices
Recent video revelations showing Planned Parenthood
executives calmly discussing barbaric abortion practices and procedures
have caused national outrage and will hopefully lead to accountability
for Planned Parenthood.
The series of undercover videos show Planned Parenthood executives discussing, among other gruesome things:
How they were good at getting body organs such as heads, hearts, livers, and lungs.
That prices for such organs were negotiable.
The use of partial birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
The altering of abortion procedures to kill babies in such a way
that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is
killed in the abortion.
As a result of the disclosures, anti-Planned Parenthood marches were
held in over 60 cities; Florida Gov. Rick Scott has ordered the
investigation of 16 Planned Parenthood offices in Florida that perform
abortions to ensure they are following state laws; nine other states
have indicated they will undertake similar investigations; and, the
Senate will vote before its August recess on a Republican effort to
block or restrict Planned Parenthood’s half billion dollars in annual
Two years ago, when black Philadelphia physician Dr. Kermit Gosnell was
found guilty of several felony counts, including first degree murder and
involuntary manslaughter, related to gruesome abortions, anti-abortion
and black pro-life groups said that Gosnell was just the tip of the
Gosnell, whom I called in this space Philadelphia’s “black angel of
death,” took the coward’s way out and struck a deal to avoid the death
penalty and chose life without parole.
It looks like those groups have been proven right. The videos showing
Planned Parenthood officials casually discussing barbaric abortion
procedures and negotiating the price of aborted fetal organs as if they
were bargaining at a garage sale expose a little bit more of the
The dirty little secret in the abortion debate is the impact of
abortions on blacks. According to the anti-abortion and prolife Radiance
Foundation, abortion is the No. 1 killer of blacks with over 360,000
black babies aborted each year. Based on the undercover videos, that
means that potentially thousands upon thousands of black fetal organs
are trafficked each year.
GOP Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson called abortion a “blatant
evil going on in our society,” that Planned Parenthood founder Margaret
Sanger was “an advocate of eugenics,” and, noted that “the plurality of
their clinics are in minority neighborhoods.”
In light of these new revelations, my fellow Newsmax Insider colleague
Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, has challenged the
Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) to condemn these practices saying in
her Newsmax post that the CBC “cannot serve both Planned Parenthood and
your constituents. By serving Planned Parenthood you are not only hating
the other or despising the other but your position is helping to kill
Not only is the CBC silent and hiding behind the skirts of Planned
Parenthood refusing to condemn or even call for an investigation of
such barbaric practices, the NAACP and groups in the “Black Lives
Matter” movement and much of the black church and civil rights
leadership are also silent. To them, apparently the lives of these
black babies killed while still in their mothers’ wombs — and those of
their white and brown counterparts — do not matter!
As one writer noted: “Human organs come from human beings, and the only
way to harvest them from unborn human beings is to kill them first.”
The CBC, NAACP and most of the Democratic Party and black political
establishments accept abortionists’ arguments that a fetus is a bunch of
cells and look the other way. The same can be said about the main
stream media. As Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also a GOP presidential
contender, has said: “virtually every reporter, virtually every editor,
virtually every person who makes decisions in the mainstream media is
Cruz is on target. Recall that the mainstream press failed to cover the
Gosnell abortion trial until it could no longer be ignored.
And what about the first black president? He and Planned Parenthood are joined at the hip in the same political bed.
If the videos have done nothing else, they have aroused the conscience
of much of the nation to the fact that all lives matter — black and
white — even in the womb.
