A Few Thoughts on Planned Parenthood Selling of Infant Organs

Unless you live under a rock propagandized by the left, you are aware of the video produced by The Center For Medical Progress featuring the Senior Director of Medical Services of Planned Parenthood, Deborah Nucatola, openly discussing their practicing of harvesting and selling the organs of aborted children. The left continues to defend an organization that sells the organs of children executed by means of partial-birth abortion which involves the removal of the brain while the head of the child is outside the womb.

In light of this earth-shattering news, many have offered their take of what this means. Obviously, the Evangelical community is outraged and speechless of the video. What I find even more despicable is how the left continues to defend this violent organization.

One of the best articles I've read on the subject comes from Doug Wilson. In his article Ghouls, Wilson makes 7 points some of which are worth highlighting here.
4. Embrace their inconsistency. Lean into it. Press it. This is because our nation is profoundly schizophrenic on this issue, and their inconsistency must be pressed hard, especially now. In other words, everyone is outraged because the body parts were sold to traffickers, instead of being thrown into the dumpster. Got that? Our nation wants to retain its self-respect on this issue through arbitrary legalisms. But surely the heart of the crime is the murder itself, and not the disposal of the body?
He's exactly right! The real crime is the murder in the first place. To dispose of "fetal remains" by either throwing it in the dumpster (which is the usual practice) or by selling the organs of the aborted image bearer is to add insult to injury.

He goes on to say:
6. Now would be a good time for a bunch of people to get down off their high horse on any matters concerning the Confederate battle flag. If you voted for Obama (twice), the most pro-abort president we have ever had, a man who is an ardent supporter of Planned Parenthood, an organization that we now see practices (illegal) partial birth abortions, which preserve more marketable pieces, an organization which chops babies into pieces and then sells them off for ready money, then you are the problem. You want to do all this feeling morally superior to Robert E. Lee? I am not defending the sin of any past generations, but it seems to me that moralistic fury from this generation is more than a little bit out of place.
His point here is a valid one. Beyond what one thinks about the Confederate Flag, surely we can agree the taking of human life is worth greater outrage than the removal of historic symbolism. I do not own a confederate flag and have no plans to ever do so. The racism prevalent throughout the Union (and not just the South) was/is despicable but here we are talking about the dismemberment of infants! Is it too much to ask our "progressive" culture to be at least as outraged by the harvesting of infant organs for profit than it is over the rebel flag?

His final point is a call to repentance:
7. The way out is repentance. The only way out is to turn from sin, and turn to Jesus Christ. America needs to take a lesson from what the Lord said to another nation with a heart of stone.

“Have ye forgotten the wickedness of your fathers, and the wickedness of the kings of Judah, and the wickedness of their wives, and your own wickedness, and the wickedness of your wives, which they have committed in the land of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem? They are not humbled even unto this day, neither have they feared, nor walked in my law, nor in my statutes, that I set before you and before your fathers” (Jer. 44:9–10).
There is an important lesson regarding this seventh point. It is not enough for us as Christians to point out our national sins without directing our hearers to the Savior. To be prophetic, which we must do when addressing the public square, is to call people to repentance.

There are two other points that need to be made not raised by Wilson. First Planned Parenthood's history makes this anything but shocking. Its founder, Margaret Sanger, was a racist feminist hated the poor and believed birth control and abortion ("planned parenthood") was necessary to weed out the unwanted in society. In other words, Sanger favored eugenics and saw Planned Parenthood as an institution that was to carry that out. Though Planned Parenthood has a large budget and is beloved by the entire left, Sanger's vision continues to be realized through them. Planned Parenthood continues to prey on the poor, racial minorities, and the handicap and instead of our promised Utopia, we have been given decades of blood.

Finally, we cannot separate pro-choice advocacy from the sexual revolution. Do not expect your neighbor to hold to traditional sexual ethics while at the same time believing a woman is lord over the fate of her unborn child. The abortion clinic is Plan C. If contraceptives and the Plan B pill do not prevent pregnancy, there is always Planned Parenthood.

We cannot separate sexual anarchy from the culture of death. Artemis demands sacrifice. Unfettered and unfiltered fornication demands we offer Moloch our children. And to profit from their hearts and kidneys is, well, icy on the cake.

Make love. Not families.
