We’ve all seen them, the gruesome videos detailing Planned Parenthood’s cold, calculated harvesting and sale of infant body parts.
“I just want a Lamborghini,” one Planned Parenthood doctor joked when a buyer asked about the price of various organs.
I’ve stopped, paused, and brooded over what we collectively, as a nation, are doing to our unborn sons and daughters. It is abhorrent. The actions of Planned Parenthood are a mirror of what our society has become. That mirror reflects the image of a 16 week old child, killed while still in the mother’s womb, removed, and dismembered for “science.” Maybe we aren’t the doctors doing the procedure, but we are the ones in the room assisting.
Yes, yes. I know all the arguments, reasons, logic, and legal decisions that birthed Planned Parenthood into existence. I have lived through the decades before and since the Roe vs. Wade edict. I know what went into it, and now I know what resulted from it.
Yet, because this human body part industry has grown on our watch, under our noses, by our elected officials. We are all to blame. The time for figure pointing has long since passed. We are all guilty, even those, like me, who have been steadfastly Pro-life. It’s our system. We own it. Therefore, we must stop it.
When the people who lived around the Nazi death camps were asked why they didn’t stop the killings. They either said they did not know about the camps, or they said they didn’t know what was going on inside the camps. A convenient delusion.
We can’t say we didn’t know about Planned Parenthood, nor can we say we didn’t know what was going on inside. We have no excuse. We must speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves. I want to be more than outraged, more than repentant. I want to do something positive to help end this.
On Saturday, August 22nd from 9-11 ncfamily.org is calling for people to speak up, or to just show up in support of putting an end to this brutality. I am acting locally by attending the Love our Unborn Neighbor and their Mothers gathering in Vancouver, WA. You can act locally by attending the events happening in your area.
