Planned Parenthood denies/obscures reality; COGWA comments

Unborn baby


Planned Parenthood continues to try to defend the indefensible:

August 28, 2015


Planned Parenthood, a U.S. government-funded women’s health care organization, has been making headlines after an anti-abortion group released several undercover videos that show some of its employees discussing the availability of aborted fetal tissue for medical research.

The heavily edited videos were secretly recorded and released by members of the Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group.

The group claims the videos show employees of Planned Parenthood, which primarily provides women with basic health care services but also abortions, discussed the selling of fetal tissue with them.Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards vehemently denied the charge.

“I want to be really clear,” she said in a recent video statement. “The allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true.”

“Our donation programs, like any other quality health care providers, follow all laws and ethical guidelines,” she added.

It is illegal to profit from fetal tissue donations in the U.S., but organizations like Planned Parenthood may provide fetal tissue for medical research if the mother gives her consent.

Planned Parenthood is not a ‘quality health care provider.’  Of course Planned Parenthood profits by selling human tissues from aborted babies.  Planned Parenthood is receiving money for tissues that it would otherwise have to pay to dispose of.

Let me also state here that the original Hippocratic oath had a statement that doctors WOULD NOT perform abortions.  Here is part of an English translation of the original Hippocratic oath:

I will prescribe regimens for the good of my patients according to my ability and my judgment and never do harm to anyone.

I will give no deadly medicine to any one if asked, nor suggest any such counsel; and similarly I will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.  (Hippocratic oath. Wikipedia, viewed 12/13/13)

Now, Wikipedia now has that last statement re-translated as follows:

Moreover, I will give no sort of medicine to any pregnant woman, with a view to destroy the child. (Hippocratic oath. Wikipedia, viewed 08/29/15)

But the oath still means that doctors were not to perform abortions.

Even thousands of years ago, that was considered to be immoral. Reportedly, though there is currently no legal obligation for medical students to swear an oath upon graduating, 98% of American medical students ‘swear to some form of oath.’  The version that most doctors ‘swear to’ no longer mentions abortion, but if they understood their history better, they would realize that their profession is supposed to be against abortion.  Irrespective of that, the Bible teaches that one is not to murder (Exodus 20:13).

The “Church of God, a Worldwide Association” (COGWA) posted the following comments by Jeremy Lallier:

Personally, I don’t care so much about whether Planned Parenthood isn’t jumping through the right legal hoops for the things they’re doing behind closed doors. And I don’t care so much whether the CMP has cut and spliced their video footage in an unfair way (even though they’ve released the full and unedited versions of each video).

What I care about are the dishes. In at least two of the videos, we’re given an uncomfortably close view of glass dishes filled with bits and pieces of aborted fetuses. What I care about is how a rational human being can look at dishes filled with the dismembered remains of a human being and still have the audacity to call a fetus nothing more than a clump of cells or a blob of tissue.

The real issue

Because that’s the crux of this whole thing, isn’t it? Are fetuses human beings, or are they not? According to most pro-choice advocates, a fetus cannot be considered a human being because it can’t survive outside the womb. It’s just a nonviable blob of tissue.


Biologically, we’re all just clumps of cells and blobs of tissue—and under certain conditions, we’re all nonviable. If I ripped you away from your food sources and thrust you into a totally inhospitable environment (say, the surface of Mars), you wouldn’t be too viable either. But would that make you any less human?

But that isn’t what I want to be focusing on right now—because, as I watched these videos, I didn’t see featureless blobs of tissue. My stomach churned as technicians rooted through piles of livers and kidneys and eyes on behalf of prospective clients. My fists clenched as one employee hunted for a pair of legs while his coworker exclaimed, “And another boy!”

And my heart sunk as a pair of tweezers picked up a perfectly formed arm, complete with perfect little fingers. It may as well have been waving to the camera—that is, if it weren’t for the technician who had ripped it off the shoulder of the fetus it belonged to.

Blobs of tissue, indeed.

We have shed innocent blood

Did you know that roughly three weeks after conception a baby’s heart is pumping blood through a closed circulatory system? I think that’s fascinating. Did you also know that, since 1980, there have been more than a billion abortions worldwide?

After the very first murder, God asked Cain, “What have you done? The voice of your brother’s blood cries out to Me from the ground” (Genesis 4:10, emphasis added). If the blood of one man was enough to symbolically cry out to God for justice, how much louder is the blood of more than a billion unborn children?

Don’t think for a second that God isn’t listening. Don’t think for a second that He doesn’t hate the way the human race has opted to sacrifice its own offspring at the altar of convenience.

In a list of seven things God hates and calls abominations, No. 3 is “hands that shed innocent blood” (Proverbs 6:17). Tell me, is there any blood being shed today more innocent than the blood of unborn children? Other items on God’s list of abominations include “a heart that devises wicked plans” and “feet that are swift in running to evil” (Proverbs 6:18). If that’s not an apt description of abortion clinics around the world, I don’t know what is.

The Bible repeatedly warns against shedding innocent blood:

19 So you shall put away the guilt of innocent blood from among you when you do what is right in the sight of the LORD (Deuteronomy 21:9).

16 These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him:  17 A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, 18 A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, 19 A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren (Proverbs 6:16-19).

7 Their feet run to evil, And they make haste to shed innocent blood; Their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; Wasting and destruction are in their paths. 8 The way of peace they have not known, And there is no justice in their ways; They have made themselves crooked paths; Whoever takes that way shall not know peace (Isaiah 59:7-8).

3 Thus says the LORD: “Execute judgment and righteousness, and deliver the plundered out of the hand of the oppressor. Do no wrong and do no violence to the stranger, the fatherless, or the widow, nor shed innocent blood in this place (Jeremiah 22:3).

17 “Yet your eyes and your heart are for nothing but your covetousness, For shedding innocent blood, And practicing oppression and violence” (Jeremiah 22:17).

Babies are innocent.  Killing them is the shedding of innocent blood.

Notice the following:

172 My tongue shall speak of Your word, For all Your commandments are righteousness (Psalm 119:172).

34 Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34).

Killing babies through abortion is not righteous. It is a reproach to nations that allow and encourage it.

Those that consent to abortions are often proud, are normally lying to themselves that they are not doing violence to a human being, and often have abortions because of their own lusts and covetousness.  Adding the sin of abortion to their other sins is simply not the answer.

They also place themselves in the same category as Judas Iscariot, for he admitted that when he betrayed Jesus Christ, he (Judas) betrayed “innocent blood” (Matthew 27:4). Jesus was betrayed by someone He considered to be a friend–no baby should be betrayed by the mother that is supposed to love them.

Notice some other comments about the situation with Planned Parenthood from a news/commentary post by Matt Walsh:

Despite the claim, reported as fact, that the videos are “totally manipulated” and “altered,” making them essentially worthless as evidence, the truth remains exactly the same. Planned Parenthood sells dead baby parts. This is a fact, and it has not been even remotely debunked. …

Now, stop and think about this for a second: abortion enthusiasts are tripping over themselves to paint these videos as “false,” because they can’t bring themselves to accept that their beloved Planned Parenthood would sell human limbs and organs. Yet, these same brainwashed sycophants eagerly accept, and in fact applaud, the fact that Planned Parenthood kills children to begin with. …

I want everyone reading this right now to please remember one thing for as long as you live: Planned Parenthood can never be trusted. Ever. Under any circumstance. They are liars to their core. Filthy, murderous liars. They lie about everything. Of course they do. Again, they kill human beings, what do you expect? Planned Parenthood lies when it says “3 percent of its business is abortion.” It lies when it says it does mammograms. It lies to women. It lies to everyone. It lies all the time, in every situation. When raped teenage girls come in for abortions, it lies by not reporting the abuse to authorities. It keeps women in the dark. It lives in the dark. It thrives on lies. And lies. And lies. And lies.

This is a relevant point because the “independent analysts” who inspected the videos were hired by Planned Parenthood. They were not, in fact, independent at all. They were working for, and being paid by, the very organization being investigated. On top of it all, the report comes to us courtesy of a company called Fusion GPS, which is a deeply partisan opposition research firm tied to the Democrat Party. …

In one of the videos, a Planned Parenthood staff member refers to a murdered unborn child as a “baby,” and in another part, a lab tech looks down at the mangled corpse of a dead baby, laughs, and remarks, “another boy!”

Here is Planned Parenthood’s smoking gun. Out of 10 pages, the analysis spends the most time here, which should tell you something. They can’t defend themselves against the substance of the accusations — that they sell organs and limbs for profit and alter their procedures to preserve specimens — so they dedicate paragraph upon paragraph to refuting the most trivial aspects.

Planned Parenthood is in the baby killing business.  And to recoup more funds, its employees have shown a willingness to sell baby parts.  Jesus tied murdering and lying in with Satan when He condemned certain leaders in His day:

44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. (John 8:44)

Satan wants to obscure the truth.  The truth is that Planned Parenthood kills and dismembers babies and some of its employees want to sell the parts for the most they can get.  That is a fact, and the willingness to sell baby parts is clearly shown in the videos that Planned Parenthood is complaining about.

Notice also something that came out yesterday:

August 28, 2015

Today, the Center for Medical Progress released the full, uncut video of the conversation between undercover investigators form CMP and top officials with StemExpress, which buys aborted babies and their body parts from Planned Parenthood. The full footage is of a shorter video that summarized the meetings earlier this week. The release of the full, unedited video also comes one day after Planned Parenthood released a new report claiming the eight videos released exposing it were “altered.”…

In the video, Cate Dyer, the CEO of StemExpress, is shown in a lunch meeting with undercover operatives posing as representatives of a biotech firm. Dyer is laughing about how StemExpress purchases fully intact aborted babies from Planned Parenthood. She laughs about how shippers of the aborted babies would give a warning to lab workers to expect such a baby.

“Oh yeah, if you have intact cases — which we’ve done a lot — we sometimes ship those back to our lab in its entirety,” she says.

“Tell the lab its coming,” she laughs about the intact unborn babies. “You know, open the box and go ‘Oh my God,’” Dyer adds.

The eighth video in the ongoing controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted fetal body parts shows the CEO of StemExpress, a major buyer of fetal tissue from Planned Parenthood, admitting the company gets “a lot” of intact fetuses, suggesting “another 50 livers a week” would not be enough, and agreeing abortion clinics should profit from the sale.

What Planned Parenthood does is outrageous. But what can we expect from a group that kills the most unborn babies in the USA.

Yet, many US politicians have come to the defense of Planned Parenthood. This does not bode well for the United States.
