UPDATE 7/21: Second Planned Parenthood Senior Executive Caught On Undercover Video. Dr. Mary Gatter, President of the Planned Parenthood Medical Directors’ Council, who now oversees the Pasadena affiliate (sold to Novogenix through the Los Angeles affiliate before that), haggles over the price, admits “Ian” will change the procedure so it is less “crunchy” — so as to produce an in tact (alive) “specimen”. On to the original post…but how many other undercover videos are there left to release?
I teach my boys (age 14 and 17) Christian apologetics, especially during summer break. Yesterday we read Tim Keller’s chapter from The Reason for God on knowing God exists through knowing right and wrong, and today we started Douglas Groothuis’ chapter from Christian Apologetics on the moral argument, which was written before the Supreme Court ruling on marriage, referred to Nazi experimentation on children (segued into current event of Planned Parenthood harvesting baby organs using partial birth abortion), and obliterated the idea that cultures create rights. We watched the first undercover video that caught the Senior Director of Medical Services of Planned Parenthood, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, admitting three ways Planned Parenthood and affiliates she oversees are violating the law as a matter of policy–the “reasonable people” among them, anyway:
1. Premeditation in performing abortions for the purpose of harvesting organs, seen in their “huddles” that determine which procedures they will use on each “case” that day, depending on what organs have been ordered, and what can most-likely be harvested from each “case”. Federal law prohibits abortions performed for the purpose of donating tissue, and the procedure to be changed in order to collect tissue. See Public Law 103-43; 6-10-93, NIOH Revitalization Act Of 1993, Title I – Gen Provisions RE: Title IV Of Public Health Service Act, Pt G, Sec. 498A.
2. They change their abortion procedures to make it possible to harvest certain organs (see 1). See Public Law 103-43; 6-10-93, NIOH Revitalization Act Of 1993, Title I – Gen Provisions RE: Title IV Of Public Health Service Act, Pt G, Sec. 498A. The really frustrating thing is they get the mother’s consent *after* the abortion is complete, so *on paper* it looks legal
3. They use partial birth abortion to harvest the head in tact. Partial birth abortions are banned–that “breech” procedure the doctor references. This is a federal felony punishable up to 2 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $250,000. (18 U.S. Code 1531). The crushing she refers to is how abortion doctors kill the baby. So if they are avoiding crushing vital organs, they are basically dealing with a born-alive infant, and any further action taken to kill him or her is homicide (1 U.S. Code 8). Future generations will look back on our partial birth abortion ban as an idiotic delusion (I pray)…thinking that abortion is murder outside the womb, but totally fine inside the womb. But who is going to go into abortion clinics and make sure the babies are murdered INSIDE rather than OUTSIDE, much less make sure they aren’t just being harvested for their organs? How can this even be stopped? The partial birth abortion ban is also an idiotic delusion because NO ONE ENFORCES IT.
My sons and I talked about the delusion of the partial birth abortion ban (still murder before baby changes location, and not enforced) and had a long discussion about what determines a person’s worth. Painfully good discussion that needed to happen, aided by Defenders classes we’d been watching on divine omniscience and foreknowledge. Would you (should God) kill Hitler as a baby? Apparently it’s been on Ethan’s mind, and ties all of this together. Grace and love being a free choice was at the center of the answer.
