Planned Parenthood: America’s ISIS
Commentary by Sanford D. Horn
July 31, 2015
It’s ironic that “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” is a 1961 song by The Tokens. While media outrage over the killing of a lion has flooded the airwaves, only token coverage and scant outrage has been offered by the same liberal, hypocritical media over the horrific videos cavalierly discussing the subdividing of babies’ bodies to be sold for the purpose of harvesting.
Another hypocrisy is that the ghouls at Planned Parenthood don’t consider what proven science has demonstrated – that what Planned Parenthood calls a so-called clump of cells is actually a human life. A life Planned Parenthood is deliberately snuffing out in a meticulous manner – not to ease the pain of that life – because, once again, science has proven that that human life feels pain, but to retrieve body parts to sell as though salvaging parts of a Chevy from a junk yard.
Planned Parenthood and its supporters can’t have it both ways. They can’t call that baby a non-life for the purpose of murdering it in the womb, yet at the same time use certain parts of that human life for tissue “donation” the way a butcher would strip a cow for steaks and other beef products.
Make no mistake; these human body parts are not being donated. They are being sold, as the multiple videos have unearthed. A pro-life organization, the Center for Medical Progress, has produced several videos of Planned Parenthood doctors and executives casually discussing the price ranges for various human body parts while munching away on salads and enjoying wine.
This is the abject loss of humanity society has sunk to, where human body parts are converted into cash, while more and more babies are being destroyed by doctors who have clearly forgotten their Hippocratic Oath to first do no harm. The principle role of a doctor is to save human lives, not end them – especially those that have barely started. Innocent lives murdered, mostly for selfish reasons as the request of, oftentimes, irresponsible adults who should know better.
Once such doctor, Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, callously explained in grim detail how the procedures occurred in order to salvage particular human baby organs as well as appropriate price ranges for the sale of said organs. There is no denying the validity of these videos. They are not excerpts and can be viewed in their unedited entirety to see the absolute dearth of humanity these butchers put on full unabashed display.
Defenders of Planned Parenthood’s Nazi-like behavior suggested the videos have been taken out of context. There can be no defending the indefensible. Planned Parenthood is a butcher shop for the destruction of humanity. What is almost as disturbing is the lack of outrage regarding the destructive behavior of Planned Parenthood – an organization claiming to be a non-profit, yet has annual income ranging from $230 million to $375 million – figures derived from confirmed and unconfirmed sources, including Planned Parenthood itself. Planned Parenthood also reports in its own annual report the slaughter of over 327,000 babies in 2013 alone, roughly the murder of nearly 900 babies each and every day of the year. Even ISIS can’t report such dastardly figures. Yes, I just compared Planned Parenthood to ISIS – both are organizations committed to savage barbarism.
Since 1970, Planned Parenthood is responsible for more than six million abortions – murders of innocent human beings who did nothing to deserve their death sentence. That is just Planned Parenthood’s contribution to this holocaust of humanity in the womb. Yes, I just compared the murder of six million babies to the Holocaust of European Jewry that also saw the murder of six million innocents.
That there is a lack of outrage on a national scale is akin to the loss of humanity that has grown in the United States since the passage of Roe v. Wade (1973) and since prayer was forbidden in the classrooms.
That there is more outrage over the killing of one lion – and I’m not defending that action if it was done illegally, as is the claim, demonstrates an off kilter set of priorities. PETA has actually called for the execution of Walter Palmer, the Minnesota dentist who killed Cecil the lion. I didn’t know PETA supported the death penalty.
All pro-life supporters are seeking is the defunding of Planned Parenthood. That organization sponges $500 million from the federal government – money coming out of the pockets of the taxpayers. There is a multitude of corporations who support Planned Parenthood financially. Let them continue to step up without pro-life taxpayers having blood on our hands for aiding and abetting both abortions and the dissemination of the body parts of innocent babies.
The United States Senate is set to vote Monday, August 3 on the defunding of Planned Parenthood. Not surprisingly, Barack Obama has threatened to veto such a defunding. This is not a political issue; at least is shouldn’t be, yet there are still too many Democrats willing to side with Planned Parenthood, no doubt because of the campaign dollars that flow their way. No, my friends, this is a moral issue; a moral outrage, that such an organization can continue to receive taxpayer dollars to murder babies and sell their parts. Selling human organs for profit is against the law and Planned Parenthood should be punished for doing so.
Planned Parenthood is not the only organization able to provide healthcare to women, as they claim is their first goal. Planned Parenthood claims no federal tax dollars fund actual abortions, but theirs is an operation that uses that money to fund abortions indirectly and that too needs to be stopped.
Thus far, 10 states have banned state funding of Planned Parenthood, including Texas and New Jersey. It’s time the remaining 40 got on board. Within a week of the revelations of Planned Parenthood’s organ selling operation, three of 41 major corporations have pulled their financial support from the abortion provider. The remaining 38 include American Express, Avon, Bank of America, Ben & Jerry’s, Macy’s, Nike, and Starbucks.

While liberals and those without a soul or a conscience continue their handwringing over the death of a lion while remaining silent regarding the continuing destruction of their own species, remember all lives matter. This includes those lives growing inside the womb for whom there is no voice. We must all be that voice – now more than ever.
