The Latest Expose On PPF Is Even Worse Than The Others *Open Thread*

by

This is a very difficult post to write. It is a very difficult topic for me to discuss in general due to the barbaric nature of what Planned Parenthood is doing in this country with tacit approval and acceptance. But it needs to be told, and these actions must be addressed.

Honestly, the latest revelations had me in tears.

And I am not the only one. Rep. Mia Love could not keep from crying when talking with Lou Dobbs about this very issue. The Hill has the story and video:

One of the House GOP’s most promising new members delivered an emotional appeal for defunding Planned Parenthood on Wednesday night, choking up as she condemned the organization.

As Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) took her first question about Planned Parenthood in an interview with Fox News, she told host Lou Dobbs, “I get a little bit emotional just thinking about it.”
“This is not about a right or left issue; this is about right or wrong,” she said, wiping a tear away.

“As long as I’m here, it’s my job to do whatever I can to get colleagues on both sides of the aisle to see what’s happening,” she said with wet cheeks, when asked about the millions of abortions each year. She added that she is motivated to act, in part, because of her role as a mother. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Here is that interview with Lou Dobbs:

I don’t blame her one bit for tearing up. Some things are so visceral, so barbaric, that it is near to impossible not to shed a tear.

That said, if you don’t want your blood pressure to spike, I suggest not reading some of the comments at The Hill article linked to above. Wow, this country is in serious, serious moral and ethical trouble…

Especially when you consider the latest revelation about Planned Parenthood. I warn you, this is unbelievably disturbing, inhumane, and downright disgusting. If you wish to proceed, steel yourselves. This is ugly beyond belief.

Okay, so here goes from The Federalist:

[…] Holly O’Donnell, a former procurement technician with Planned Parenthood partner StemExpress, described in the video how one abortionist thought it was “kinda cool” to arbitrarily stop and start an unborn baby’s heart during the abortion.

“‘Hey, Holly, come over here. I want you to see something kinda cool. This is kinda neat,’” an abortionist told O’Donnell.

“The moment I see it, I’m just flabbergasted,” O’Donnell said. “This is the most gestated fetus and the closest thing to a baby I’ve seen.”

“[The abortionist] has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus and it’s heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”

I can barely stand it. Seriously. Astonishingly, though, it gets worse:

O’Donnell detailed how the abortionist performed the abortion in order to “procure” the baby’s brain. O’Donnell also described how the abortionist made her harvest the baby’s brain by cutting his face open with scissors.

In one portion of the video, a prospective organ buyer asked a supplier whether a baby’s heart is still beating during the procedure.

“So you know there are times when after the procedure is done that the heart is still beating,” Ben Van Handel, a Novogenix executive, told the buyer. […] (Click here to read the rest and see the video.)

How in the world can these people do this? How can they LIVE with themselves? How can they be so GLEEFUL about what they are doing to a HUMAN FETUS/BABY?? How?? It just does not compute, not intellectually, not emotionally, certainly not morally, ethically, or spiritually. How in the name of all that is holy can these people DO this, and with such disregard for life?!

And it begs the question: why are more news outlets not reporting what is happening at Planned Parenthood?

The Federalist has the answer to that for a few outlets at least, and is it ever telling:

Earlier this week, a seventh video detailing Planned Parenthood’s gruesome organ-trafficking operation was released. In it, a former procurement technician who worked with the organization described how Planned Parenthood harvested a brain from a baby boy whose heart was still beating.

If you use BuzzFeed as your primary source of news, however, you’d know nothing about the story. The same goes for the video in which a top Planned Parenthood official said she needed a good price on aborted baby organs because, “I want a Lamborghini.” That little detail was also never reported. In fact, it’s been over a month since BuzzFeed published any standalone stories featuring details from newly released undercover videos.

[…]

Journalists from several other organizations also received Planned Parenthood “Maggie” awards, named after Margaret Sanger, the racist, eugenicist, Hitler-supporting founder of Planned Parenthood.

This Yahoo! Health editor received an award just hours after she published this story about how those multi-state and federal investigations of Planned Parenthood are like, totally, not a big deal you guys:

Jen Gerson Uffalussy

As 7th ‘Sting’ Video Is Released, State Investigations Into Planned Parenthood’s Come Up Flat: https://www.yahoo.com/health/in-the-center-for-medical-progress-seventh-127081792747.html?soc_src=unv-sh&soc_trk=tw … via @YahooHealth

[…]

More than a dozen additional journalists also received awards yesterday from the nation’s largest abortion provider and unborn baby organ harvester. It would appear that the only thing Planned Parenthood enjoys more than harvesting baby parts to sell is rewarding activists with bylines for their work in snuffing out news coverage before it even leaves the cradle. (Click here to read the rest.)

And that is why there is not more about the abhorrent practices of this organization that receives hundreds of millions of our tax dollars: because too many journalists and outlets are in their pocket.

Something has to give. Something MUST give to stop these heinous practiced by Planned Parenthood and now. I hope and pray that Rep. Love will be able to effect some real change when it comes to how this organization is being allowed to operate. Perhaps there can be some legislation that puts some major restrictions on what they (and others) can and cannot do with fetal tissue. Because all I know is that what they are getting away with now is simply unacceptable for a civilized society.

At least that’s what I think. How about you? This is an Open Thread.

    The media can ignore this story and it will still get out. We don’t live in the days when we could only get our “news” from the newspapers or television. Most have computers and can find “news” all over the Internet.

    The problem is that most on the left, and women in particular, don’t want to know the truth. If they acknowledge that the things done in the name of “women’s health” are evil, barbaric and morally, wrong their little world of talking points falls apart. Ignorance is bliss only for so long.

    The evil barbarians who chortle at a fetal heartbeat and make sick jokes about Lamborghini’s may not pay a penalty thanks to the sick culture that permeates this nation at this time. That will change.

    The videos are out there. And the media can ignore them. But people will see them and know. And every sick, twisted, female politician that backs Planned Parenthood is going to pay some day.

    As a Catholic I would like to know why the Pope is so concerned with Global Warming and not more concerned with refusing the sacraments to the evil lefties who pretend they are “good” Catholics. Start with Pelosi your Holiness.

    • mcnorman Says:

      You have to wonder about the Pope. Global warming and immigration seems to be top on his priority list.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I honestly thought that breaking the “Vatican type” Pope would be a good thing. A man of the people right? No left. Our first Socialist Pope. He’s changing a lot of things but there are some, like abortion he can’t change. So he ignores it.

        • mcnorman Says:

          He is very much the Latino Hispano male. I know that the man has his heart in the right place, but he is from a third world ass backwards country. Venezuela has always had problems. Latin America will NEVER change. They still believe in serfdoms. There are only two classes. You’re either in or out. For those that have never known anything but poverty, they will gladly subscribe to socialism as salvation.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            Hadn’t looked at it like that before, mcnorman. Thanks for that perspective. Definitely food for thought!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      What an unbelievably powerful cartoon – thank you for that, Marge. Holy smokes, that says it all.

      Great comment, too. Yes, these MSM outlets may refuse to report on the abhorrent behavior caught on film by these PPF people, but we do know despite their efforts. And all they are doing is proving again and again how MSM “journalism” no longer exists in this country for the most part.

      Good question for the Pope, too. When you have all these Lefties proclaiming there is nothing wrong with what PPF is doing, you see just how far we have fallen. It ain’t pretty, not by a long shot, and is truly disconcerting for where we now stand as a nation.

      Something’s gotta give. We need to reclaim our moral equilibrium in a big way…

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        These women politicians have to be held responsible for what they support. Especially the ones that are mothers. The ones who felt a baby grow within their body and beneath their heart. If they can ignore the barbarity of what is being done then they show us that inhumanity makes them unworthy not only to hold the office they hold but to hold ANY office.

    Advice to Donald Trump’s Over-Praisers and Over-Criticizers

    Since he is going to be around, probably for quite a while, I offer some tips for folks driven to the opposite extremes here in the Summer of Trump.

    First, for his over-criticizers:

    —Realize that in bashing him, you are seen as attacking every corner of his large fan base. Coming at Trump with a scalpel is smarter than the sledgehammer— an approach that will make you look like a fan of the faint-hearted weasels who have run things for too long.

    Now to Mr. Trump’s reputational guardians, the folks who are loving his ascendancy so much that even measured criticism of him brings out their long knives:

    — Just enjoy the ride. Your man’s golden moment could last anywhere from a few months to Inauguration Day. But whatever happens, real voters will be the determining factor, not a few pundits or rivals who are knocking him around. And if Trump were to evaporate tomorrow, he has cemented immigration, trade policies and American exceptionalism as issues the entire field will likely address with greater vigor. Be happy.

    http://townhall.com/columnists/markdavis/2015/08/21/advice-to-donald-trumps-overpraisers-and-overcriticizers-n2041505/page/full

    Good advice. I should take it. Probably, given how much I loathe the man, I won’t.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      ROTFL – I hear you. And I have tried the scalpel approach – selecting a particular policy. His supporters are unmoved by facts, unfortunately, just like Obot supporters. So, not sure if it makes a difference one way or the other, but I get the point: sit back and let it unfold. We have to hope that his star power will burn out as the serious politicians step it up…

      • mcnorman Says:

        You gotta give the guy credit for some of the good things he has done while teh won has played golf. I don’t know who I will vote for, but Trump does love this country and I cannot say the same for teh won.

        http://gretawire.foxnewsinsider.com/video/video-yes-donald-trump-helped-sgt-tahmooressi/

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          True, mcnorman – good point. He has done some good things, no doubt abt it. So yeah – I’ll give him that. And yes, he does love the country, clearly more than Obama. I appreciate that you haven’t decided yet – I haven’t either.

          But for me, Trump is the flip side of Obama. Personally, I think we need someone far less bombastic and bullying, and who does not engage in gratuitous put downs. We have had that for over 6 yrs already.

          So, yes, Trump does have some good things abt him, but personally, I think his temperament is lacking for the office he seeks. (And I hope I don’t offend you with this response!)

    • foxyladi14 Says:

      Good advice Marge.
      As for me I am just watching the Circus. 😆

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    Good for Mia Love! She shows that some female politicians, at least those on the right side of the aisle have come sense of decency.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Yes – I like Mia Love a lot. Though she is NOT “African American,” as the article refers to her. Her parents are from HAITI. Just sayin’.

      But yes – thank heavens she is driving this subject in Congress since others have not done anywhere NEAR enough.

      Great cartoon, too!

  4. mcnorman Says:

    You have to wonder if HRC, Barry or any of these supporters would support this if it were their daughter? You know darned well that HRC would be taken aback if someone asked her what she would think if baby Charlotte had been sold for body parts.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, wow, mcnorman – that is so true! I guess as long as they are some other women, often coerced into having these abortions, they don’t matter.

      Excellent point…

  5. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Branco sums up the whole Iran deal beautifully:

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      The man is a genius as I’ve said before. I don’t know how he does it but I am so glad that he does! Thanks for sharing. I’ve been busy today and haven’t gotten around the net much.

      I also pulled weeds and “topped” my basil. Now I smell like pesto and I love it! A bee followed me and tried to come in the house so I guess he liked the smell of basil too. I sent him on his busy little pollinating way. Also watched two goldfinches on my sunflowers for about 15 minutes. Just sat on the steps and enjoyed the sight. I needed a rest any way. I ain’t as young as I once was ya know.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Oh, nice! So glad you had a chance to play out in the garden and made a bee friend! And pesto – YUM! Love basil…

        And the goldfinches – how nice that you got to watch them. I love watching the birds at the feeders we have, and the big hunting birds in the marsh (egrets, herons, etc.). What amazing creatures!

  6. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Marge, to prove your point, I just got this email from the Humane Society: The reverberations from the early July slaying of Cecil the lion continue to be felt worldwide, with the news that authorities in Zimbabwe have charged the second of two men who guided Safari Club International member Walter Palmer’s illicit trophy kill just outside the borders of Hwange National Park. “Cecil was delivered to him like a pizza,” said the Hwange Lion Research Project’s Brent Stapelkamp, who took the last photo of Cecil alive, just a month before Palmer killed, skinned, and beheaded the lion with the assistance of hunting guide Theo Bronkhurst and game park owner Honest Ndlovu. We are still awaiting word on Zimbabwe’s request to extradite Walter Palmer, who was at the center of this scheme to kill Hwange National Park’s most famous lion, and if that happens, there will be some measure of justice for all three horsemen of the Hwange apocalypse.

    We’re also urging the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to finalize its proposed rule listing the African lion under the Endangered Species Act, as have dozens of members of Congress. We are hoping for final action from the agency soon, so that further imports of lion trophies will be restricted or banned from African nations.

    Either way, the killers will have a hard time getting those trophies back home. Since the Cecil slaying, 38 airlines have committed to halting the shipping of the Africa Big Five. Delta, United, and American Airlines — the big U.S.-based carriers with service to Africa — are among the airlines to ban shipping lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros, and Cape buffalo trophies. UPS this week announced a good, sound policy of not shipping shark fins, but we are still awaiting a declaration from that company on its policy concerning the hunting trophies, since four species of the Africa Big Five are listed, or about to be listed, as threatened with extinction under the provisions of the Endangered Species Act.

    U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, D-N.J., has introduced a bill to ban all imports of trophies and parts from African lions and other at-risk species into the United States. Reps. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-TX, and Eddie Bernice Johnson, D-TX, have announced their intention to sponsor a bill to amend the Endangered Species Act to ban “all acts of senseless and perilous trophy killings.” Lawmakers in New York and New Jersey have introduced bills to restrict imports into their states.

    Right now, there are 41 trophy hunters who, just like Walter Palmer, paid a fortune to kill an animal about to get listed under the Endangered Species Act, and want a waiver from Congress to display the heads and hides of the slain animals in their homes. In the case of the 41, they killed polar bears in northern Canada. We’re fighting their import-waiver effort not just as a symbolic act to deny these trophy hunters their ill-gotten gains, but to prevent the bum rush of trophy hunters into a foreign land whenever our federal government announces that it’s going to upgrade federal protections for a declining species and restrict imports.

    Finally, there is the battle we’re waging in the marketplace of ideas. We’ve answered the self-serving reasoning of the trophy-hunting clan about the value of their activity to conservation, and more than ever, people see through their pay-to-slay reasoning. People realize that trophy killing undermines wildlife conservation, is no boon to national or regional economies anywhere, and should not be countenanced or encouraged by anyone. How can anyone possibly think it’s helpful to animals to kill a dominant lion in a pride with an arrow, or to slay a large-tusked elephant, or a mature rhino with a beautiful horn? For them, I guess, it diminishes the utter selfishness of the activity by concocting some far-fetched scenario where killing a creature somehow helps the grieving, surviving family members or pride or herd mates. It’s really a travesty to think anyone could buy this drivel.

    When it comes to The HSUS and Humane Society International, we’re going to devote more resources, in the near and the long term, to fight this enterprise of globe-trotting trophy hunting of the rarest, most remarkable animals in the world. If you’re willing to stand with us, and to support our worldwide campaigns against trophy killing, I’m willing to make you this promise: Cecil won’t have died in vain.

    Not a word abt the selling of fetal parts, though…

    • mcnorman Says:

      Such an ill world. The lack of reverence for life kills me. Even those who hunt for sustenance like your Eskimo understand what taking that animal’s life means in order to eat. I don’t begrudge what they do. i do not care for hunting as sport. I find PP utterly disgusting. As for those who continue to support PP, their souls are dark.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Exactly. While I have never hunted, I appreciate that there are those who need to hunt for food. And many people give thanks to the animals for giving its life for them.

        But what is happening at PP is indeed disgusting, and you summed it up well.

    Liberals Suddenly Concerned About Babies and “Tiny Humans” That Should Be “Cherished and Valued”

    By Katie Pavlich

    Liberals are outraged. No, it isn’t about Planned Parenthood sorting parts of babies in pie pans and selling them at a profit. And no, they aren’t outraged over the abortion giant selling whole baby cadavers in order to keep body parts “intact.” Nor are they outraged over Planned Parenthood cutting out the brains of babies while their hearts are still beating.

    They are, however, suddenly concerned about babies of illegal immigrants born in the United States being called “anchor babies” by GOP presidential candidates.

    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2015/08/21/liberals-all-the-sudden-concerned-about-babies-and-tiny-humans-that-should-be-nurtured-n2041427

    The hypocrisy of these barbarians is stunning.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Katie Pavlich NAILS it with this. It is AMAZING that illegal aliens mean SO much more to the Left than babies being murdered and cut up.

      I struggle to understand just how it is the Left decided to open the floodgates to illegals ANYWAY; why they think THEY should have more rights and entitlements than US citizens; why they should be able to serve on city councils and take the bar to be attorneys; and why they should be treated as victims; and why they think illegals should be allowed to DEMAND citizenship, rights, and entitlements.

      Meanwhile, should any US citizen balk at paying for them, we are called anti-immigrant, demeaned, and demonized. It is astonishing.

    Pro-Planned Parenthood Rally at Governor’s Mansion in Louisiana Draws Paltry Crowd

    Around two dozen pro-Planned Parenthood protesters stood outside the governor’s mansion in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Thursday to protest Governor Bobby Jindal’s recent decision to have the abortion provider investigated and defunded.

    When the Jindal administration caught wind of Planned Parenthood’s plan to hold a protest in the pro-life governor’s front yard, they came up with a brilliant plan to counter them.

    Jindal had a huge screen set up outside the governor’s mansion, and ran each of the seven disturbing expose videos of Planned Parenthood on a continuous loop for the duration of the protest.
