Planned Parenthood came under fire recently over some controversial videos produced by The Centre for Medical Progress. The videos expose the organisation of illegally selling foetal tissue (baby parts) and altering abortion procedures to yield more in-tact specimens (baby parts). Whilst the public spotlight and outrage has been focussed on the organisation facilitating the procedures, little has been said in the conversation about the sheer magnitude of mothers who are voluntarily, whether consciously or ignorantly, sending their children for the slaughter.
How many abortions will Planned Parenthood carry out this year? Let’s just say for example’s sake, 300,000. That means at a minimum, 300,000 mothers went through Planned Parenthood clinic doors to end the life of their unborn child. Isn’t our outrage a little misdirected?
And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.
Am I against an organisation that facilitates the murder of the innocent and defenceless? Yes. Am I against tax dollars being used to subsidise the costs of the procedures? Yes. But let’s focus on the heart of the issue. The heart of the problem is not what is done with dead baby body parts. Neither is it how a baby is killed in order to yield the most in-tact remains. It’s the fact that the murder is even allowed to take place to begin with. Then, to add sin to sin, the one who sent the baby in to be murdered suffers no legal ramifications.
If mothers stopped supplying Planned Parenthood with “aborted foetal tissue” the current conversation would be irrelevant. Arguing over what is done with the remains of a murdered person or how those remains are transported or used, is a secondary issue.
Think about it: If it’s socially acceptable that thousands of babies are being aborted and their remains thrown out with the rubbish, then I can understand how the opposition can argue the point that this is a waste of “tissue samples” that can be used for medical research. I believe we would be more effective in this debate if we address the heart of the issue, which is where the supply of fetal tissue is coming from in the first place. We need to bring the conversation back a step.
Remember, Planned Parenthood exists because there is a market demand for their services. Their existence is a symptom of the problem, that is – pregnant mothers demanding their services. I’m not saying that Planned Parenthood’s doctors and staff are not responsible for the atrocities they are taking part in, but behind every “tissue” transaction”, every “organ donation”, every “early termination”, a pregnant mother has opted to end the innocent life of a little human being growing inside of them.
Who has the greater sin?
10 Then saith Pilate unto him, Speakest thou not unto me? knowest thou not that I have power to crucify thee, and have power to release thee?
11 Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above: therefore he that delivered me unto thee hath the greater sin.
