The Committee on Energy and Commerce in the US House of Representatives has convened a Select Investigative Panel to probe the marketing and sale of aborted baby body parts. The website tells us that the Committee has been established to “gather information and get the facts about medical practices of abortion service providers and the business practices of the procurement organizations who sell baby body parts.”
So right off the bat, it is more than concerning that still, after more than 43 years, nobody in politics is willing to call abortion a crime against humanity—a violent terrorist activity occurring all across our land and mutilating millions of people. Instead, this special investigative committee is looking into “business practices” for those who provide “abortion service.”
If you don’t see anything wrong with that description, allow me to explain.
The entire debate about the selling of baby body parts will continue to be a sham until those whom we elect to public office are willing to define truth in terms of objective reality instead of whitewashing it in a way that plays directly into the hands of Planned Parenthood and its cronies. By using terms like “business practices” and “abortion service” the committee gives credibility to a deadly business. This is a symptom of political correctness that simply has to stop.
How could I possibly say such a thing?
Well, in case you have forgotten, David Daleiden, the investigative journalist who started this latest brouhaha, has been indicted for allegedly committing a crime. Daleiden, according to Time magazine, “joined his first group in high school, wrote his thesis at Claremont McKenna on fetal personhood in American jurisprudence and became the director of research for the national antiabortion group Live Action while he was still an undergrad” did his due diligence. What he did was tell the truth.
David gets it; he knows he is working to expose a criminal act that profits many companies and even an industry. But sadly, the industry continues to operate because it is wrapped in a cloak of legitimacy woven for it by the United States Supreme Court in January 1973.
Planned Parenthood, that business of which I speak, celebrated Daleiden’s indictment, saying, “These people broke the law to spread malicious lies about Planned Parenthood in order to advance their extreme anti-abortion political agenda.”
This “woe is me” statement belies the genuine evil perpetrated by Planned Parenthood—an organization that is the nation’s number one abortion sales machine. It is in the “business” of killing people and harvesting their bodies for tissue and organs that can be sold publicly.
And this is why I am concerned about a congressional committee that is offering its version of validating Planned Parenthood by investigating it the way one might investigate IBM or APPLE!
If lawmakers were honest about it, they would state clearly that there is no justification to be found in murder, let alone in harvesting a body for its parts.
The good news is that David Daleiden’s legal team is on the spot with a motion to quash the false indictments filed in the Houston, Texas, case against Daleiden. Further, Daleiden’s Center for Medical Progress is pleased to report that the House Selective Investigative Committee has uncovered financial documents that prove beyond a doubt that Planned Parenthood was making money on the sale of baby body parts.
These facts suggest that progress is being made. But they do not change the fundamental questions that nobody is asking: Who dies during an abortion and why aren’t such crimes against humanity defined as such in our laws, by our lawmakers, and by our judges?
Why aren’t the officials and doctors of every business that profits from killing people being indicted for the crimes that result in the death of innocent people?
Until Congress investigates those heinous crimes, business as usual will continue.
