Ignore the Tiny Corpses: America’s Powerful Conceal the Monster

at Catholic Online

Jesus showed us with astonishing clarity how endless is the love of God and how deep His mercy when He faced His executioners without a word except to say, “Father, forgive them.” He modeled for us the power of meekness. A challenging example indeed.

There was also the day He became justifiably angry, cracked a whip and turned over some tables and was anything but meek. There are things worthy of outrage, things that cry out for a bold confrontation.

When exactly did it become a crime against Love to expose evil and call it evil? When did it become more loving to soft-peddle with gentler words rather than speak candidly?

Taking a cue from Edmund Burke, all that’s necessary for the unthinkable to be accepted is for people to find candor and confrontation of evil more unthinkable. We have mistaken politeness for Love. We’ve placed comfort and niceness above the truth and called it our Christian duty. We grow more and more silent, more and more complacent as the evil around us grows braver and more outrageous.

I’m not talking about pronouncing judgment on anyone’s soul or limiting God’s mercy, but about tolerating evil. Not just tolerating it, but disguising it, concealing it, feeding it.

For the sake of shredding the flimsy veneer of respectability and righteousness covering the stinking pile sitting in our midst, here goes.

There is currently on trial in America a person who fits the definition of a monster. Every bit as evil as Hitler, or the most demented murderer you can imagine. He has a medical degree, so his monstrous actions were done in the name of “health care.” His name is Kermit Gosnell, and he has murdered babies for years. He is a human butcher.

He preys on foolish, desperate women, and perhaps some women who are as cold-hearted as he is. He serves no one and cares for no one. He is a killer of the weakest, most vulnerable, most defenseless human beings on the planet. His “work”, his actions, his business is nothing but pure evil. (He likes to keep his victim’s little feet in jars as trophies.)

He’ll rip a near-term living baby from the womb, grab a pair of scissors, and cut the child’s spinal column at the neck. He calls it abortion. So do a lot of other people in America.

You would think that every decent citizen in our nation would be so repulsed, so aghast and horrified at the evil this man has done that it would cause soul-searching on a massive scale, and finally, an honest public debate about the reality of abortion.

Thanks to the intentional, shameful silence on the part of major news media, I’ll bet that a majority of Americans have no clue about Gosnell or what he’s done. This same majority will bristle at the legitimate charges brought against Planned Parenthood and balk at the idea of defunding them. This same majority will go deaf, dumb, and blind when presented with the fact that their stylish, charming President voted four times to deny life-saving medical care to infants who survived an abortion.

I’d bet there are more people who will defend Gosnell’s “work” than people who will call him a child killer. In fact, the people most desperate to make Gosnell just disappear are those who want to see his “work” continue, though perhaps not as gruesomely or publicly.

Then again, I don’t think the gruesomeness bothers them at all. What bothers them is that Gosnell has made abortion and abortionists look bad and made some people actually feel sorry for the baby.

I don’t think taxpayer-funded-Planned Parenthood, NARAL Pro-Choice, any other pro-abortion lobby or organization, anyone in the mainstream media, or any of our pro-abortion politicians including Obama cares one whit about what Gosnell has done to so many innocent children. They only care that he did it sloppily, left a mess behind him, and got caught.

This murderer’s shocking crimes are being ignored by those in power because abortion is more important.

A sadistic and greedy killer is being hidden by people who say they only want women to have freedom of “choice”, and they only want the best for children in America. They are the ones who truly care about women, about children, about families, about quality health care, about freedom.

To Planned Parenthood; to PP’s guardian and benefactor in the White House; every other political advocate for abortion; and every so-called feminist screaming for “Abortion on demand and without apology!”, I’m calling b.s.

You don’t give a damn about women, and you certainly don’t give a damn about children. You are every bit as invested in the death of the unborn (or born) child as Gosnell, every bit as greedy for the money to be made by killing babies. Your mission is not women’s health or women’s freedom or women’s choice, but women’s coercion, women’s manipulation, women’s degradation and usage, and if women are sometimes butchered right along with the babies, so be it.

Your mission is dead babies. You don’t want fewer abortions, you want more. You’re not interested in planning parenthood, but in making sure abortion finally is seen as a necessary, essential, and noble facet of every woman’s life. Your goal is that the stigma of abortion should be redirected toward the child in the womb, and to the woman who refuses to believe your bloody lies.

In order to secure future clients and keep the money coming in, you’re going after our school children with your perverted version of “sex education” that destroys modesty, normalizes every sort of sexual immorality, mandates condom and Pill distribution and forbids any mention of abstinence. You’re making sure Planned Parenthood has access to young girls to “provide” them with “health care” information and abortions without their parent’s knowledge or consent. You are actively corrupting our children in the most manipulative and disgusting manner.

Only one thing is sacred to you (beyond the $$) and that is sex — wherever, with whomever, whenever, and however anyone wants. With no consequences or obligations. You worship genitals and orgasms and every manner of titillation, and the sacrifice you bring to your altar is the child in the womb.

Your scare-tactic speeches about the back-alley abortions of yesteryear are as hollow as your professed concern for the welfare of children. Your insistence that a woman’s bodily autonomy is paramount have now been revealed to be nothing but smoke. What you really mean is, babies who have the nerve to survive the first attempt on their lives have no right to medical care, and can quite justifiably be left to die, even made to die, on the table. (It’s not infanticide, you say, but post-birth abortion.)

When PP’s Florida lobbyist recently said out loud that the decision to give medical care to an infant who survives an abortion should be left to the woman and her doctor, she was merely echoing Barack Obama as an Illinois Senator when he said that caring for the child would “only burden the original decision of the woman”. In other words, mom wanted the baby dead, so somebody better make sure the baby dies. That’s what we’re paid for.

It doesn’t matter to any of you when the baby dies, or how the baby dies, or where the baby dies, just as long as the baby dies. That is what you’re really all about, and not another breath should be wasted trying to say otherwise. No more soft-peddling with euphemisms and tip-toeing around the truth.

You are all advocates for killing defenseless children. You are not advocates for women’s health care, or women’s equality, or women’s freedom. You are advocates of child murder. If you find that statement harsh, too bad. You have gotten this far only because too many people are too squeamish to call things what they really are. The evil you do has thrived only because people are unwilling to confront you honestly and tear the sympathetic masks off your faces.

You may find Gosnell distasteful and annoying because he focuses unwanted negative attention on your killing industry, but the best you can do is whine that the monster is in because not enough doctors are willing to become abortionists because of the pesky “stigma” of abortion. To you Gosnell’s “clinic” is proof-positive that America needs more access to abortion, with fewer restrictions and legal oversight so that women won’t be “forced” to see a creep like him.

You step right over the tiny corpses. Your answer to evil is to keep feeding the evil.

And you’ll keep doing it for as long as we give you the power. You’ll keep feeding the evil, and feeding America lies and smokescreens for as long as you can. And we will remain a nation that butchers its own babies.

How long will that be, America? How long will that be, Body of Christ?

A Picture Worth Half a Million, Invisible to MSM

The crowd was estimated to be close to half a million people this year.  The silence from the media is ridiculous.  Their attempts to minimize, or flat-out ignore the hundreds of thousands of people (so many of them young people) who descended on Washington, D.C. in support of the unborn is growing so tiresome and pathetic.  We’ll see a few photos this week of the six or seven counter-protesters who showed up, but no honest coverage of the pro-lifers who were undeterred by the cold, the snow, the distance they’ve traveled to be there.

Looking for a good aerial shot of the crowd from the March (some I’ve found are disputed as to their date/event), but for now this photograph shows a small portion of the marchers as they made their way to the Supreme Court.

Poor, Poor Planned Parenthood: Media and Politicians Run to the Rescue

at Catholic Online

 

Poor, poor Planned Parenthood. Is there any other organization in America that is more coddled, more sheltered, more pandered to than PP? They are a billion-dollar spoiled brat, but unfortunately, no one has the guts to put them in the corner and take away their toys. (This spoiled brat, like a Transformer, morphs into a giant monster bully that will demolish anyone who gets in the way.)

The Susan G. Komen Foundation attempted to discontinue some of their grant funding to Planned Parenthood this week, and boy, did they get smacked down for it! Liberal, pro-abortion politicians came to Planned Parenthood’s rescue within seconds. 26 U.S. Senators sent a letter to Komen’s founder, Nancy Brinker, pressuring Komen to restore the funding immediately. NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg joined in the chastisement and promised to “offset” the “loss” to PP by giving them $250,000. The Lance Armstrong Foundation then released a statement saying they would be giving Planned Parenthood $100,000.

The media pressure on Komen was furious and brutal. Every major news network headlined the deprivation of Planned Parenthood of this precious funding as though women all over America had been sentenced to death by Komen. Komen, who is supposed to champion breast health, they said, had all but guaranteed that women were going to be denied vital care that would cost them their lives. Oh, the drama! The travesty!

Of course, the message being drummed out by the media and the pro-abortion politicians was that Komen had succumbed to political pressure from those mean, woman-hating pro-lifers who just want women to get sick and die (preferably on the floor of the U.S. House). Yes, this was surely Komen showing how cowardly they were, and how they didn’t really care about women’s health at all. Anyone who would DARE deny money to the almighty Planned Parenthood is a pathetic excuse for a women’s advocate.

How ‘bout a reality check, hm?

Fact #1: Planned Parenthood is currently under investigation by Congress over their use of all those federal dollars we taxpayers are obligated to provide them. And let’s not be obtuse here, folks – funds are fungible. Funds that pay the electric bill for the abortion mill are funding abortion. Planned Parenthood EXISTS to do abortions. Period. If they had to cease killing babies tomorrow, they’d close up shop the day after that. They are not a benevolent medical organization interested in women’s health. They are not philanthropists. They are interested only in profits, and abortion means BIG profits. Those “blobs of tissue” may be small, but getting rid of them is a multi-million dollar bonanza. Breast cancer screenings? Not a money-maker. (Hence the cry for grants from generous folks like Komen.)

Fact #2: Planned Parenthood does not provide mammograms. There is not a single PP clinic in the U.S. that can give a woman a mammogram. Planned Parenthood does not offer any direct cancer treatment services. PP does a physical breast exam, and then they are merely a referral center. They send women to hospitals and health care facilities that do provide mammograms. And for this, they demand the generous support of charitable contributions.

Fact #3: Planned Parenthood performed less than 5% of the breast exams that Komen grants funded in 2011. Clearly, Komen has not abandoned women to suffer without needed care. Quite the contrary. Brinker explained that Komen’s goal is to direct their funding toward providers who – imagine this now – actually provide mammograms and cancer treatment!!

And last but certainly not least: It was not the Komen Foundation that issued a statement about their decision to discontinue funding PP, but Planned Parenthood who leaked the news to the media first in order to stir up the necessary outrage toward Komen. And the mainstream media was only too eager to oblige. Poor, poor Planned Parenthood! One ABC News story set it up this way: “Witch Hunt or Policy Shift?” With “reporting” like that, how can anyone question the allegiance of the media to PP?

So began the smear campaign against Komen, accusing them of politicizing women’s health. Have you noticed that a decision to not fund Planned Parenthood is always about politicizing women’s health, but mandated funding of PP is never political, just noble and necessary? In the world where Planned Parenthood is sainted and adored, any citizen who doesn’t bow and pay homage (literally, pay) is punished and if necessary, crushed for their transgression.

That’s the lesson of this Komen story: Planned Parenthood has friends in high and useful places, and if you dare cross them, you.will.be.destroyed.

In the most ironic statement of the month, Cecile Richards griped that Komen’s decision was the result of bullying by the pro-life community:

“It’s hard to understand how an organization with whom we share a mission of saving women’s lives could have bowed to this kind of bullying,” Cecile Richards, president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, told the Associated Press.

Then Planned Parenthood does what it does best: they charged their political allies and the mainstream media with the task of bullying Komen into submission once again. Between Mayor Bloomberg’s largesse and the LiveStrong donation, as well as other private donations, PP had more than made up for any loss of funding. Yet that wasn’t satisfactory. Komen had to be humiliated and reprimanded. It wasn’t just about the money – it was about unquestioning loyalty and obedience to Planned Parenthood.

And on Friday, Komen seemed to change their minds and reinstate the funding for PP. The media and pro-abortion blogosphere labeled the move a mea culpa – Komen’s “apology” to Planned Parenthood. Apology for what exactly?

Did Komen cave? That depends on who you ask right now. (Komen’s statement can be read here.) They said that grants already awarded to PP will be honored and paid, and that PP may still be eligible for future grants, but they have not promised that PP will get anything in the future. Are they trying to weather a nasty media storm for now, and refuse PP any grant money down the road? It’s anybody’s guess.

The media has stubbornly ignored the countless women, like me, who have gone out of their way for years now NOT to buy products that support Komen precisely because they donate to Planned Parenthood. Komen reported a huge surge in their donations this week, along with a flood of positive emails, all in response to their decision to stop funding PP. Now, once again, Komen has put themselves back on the “do not donate” list for pro-lifers. Many in the pro-life community feel that Komen has lost its last shred of credibility.

But that credibility was lacking all along, really. Komen refuses to acknowledge the link between abortion and breast cancer. The link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer is also a bugaboo that Komen has to overlook when it comes to Planned Parenthood. In more ways than one, PP puts women at greater risk of breast cancer, and for years Komen has played the blind, deaf fool just handing over the cash.

I was happy to write a letter to the Komen Foundation this week to thank them for their decision to stop funding Planned Parenthood. It was a step in the right direction, and I wanted them to know the move was appreciated. It’s disappointing, but not very surprising, that they may have changed their minds, thanks to the slanderous pounding they got from Planned Parenthood’s bully machine.

Bottom line: Planned Parenthood kills over 300,000 babies in America every year. They receive over $350 million taxpayer dollars every year. In 2011, PP ordered every one of their 99 affiliates around the country to have at least one clinic performing abortions, because abortion is where the profit is. PP is a billion-dollar industry because of abortion. They have shown themselves time and time again to be more than willing to cover up child rape and sexual abuse, and to thwart and outright defy the law when it suits their purposes. They are invested in promoting promiscuous and dangerous sexual behavior among teenagers because they need a steady stream of new clients.

And they have President Obama, at least half of Congress, and the mainstream media under their bloody thumb. The beast bared its teeth this week, and everyone scrambled to make sure the thing got fed.
