When The Babylon Bee published the satirical piece entitled “Serial Killer Released after Explaining Murder Was Only 3% of What He Did,” a strange reaction occurred in my brain as I thought about Planned Parenthood’s phony claim that only three percent of its business is aborting children.
I wondered, just how bad does Planned Parenthood have to get before people begin to see the bloody truth about the nation’s leading abortion chain? And I think that time is now.
We know that in Northern California three Planned Parenthood centers will close at the end of June. This follows on the heels of reports that during the week of May 15, 10 Planned Parenthood clinics closed in four states.
Further, thanks to the hard work of Jim Sedlak, American Life League’s vice president and founder of Stop Planned Parenthood International, we noted in a recent media release:
Despite fewer clients, Planned Parenthood managed to increase its abortion business. It says it committed 328,348 surgical and medication abortions from October 1, 2014, to September 30, 2015. This is up from 323,999 the previous year, but the same as the average number of abortions a year over the last five years (328,445).
In a startling demonstration of Planned Parenthood’s priorities, abortions outnumbered breast exams at Planned Parenthood for the first time in its history! It committed 328,348 abortions and performed only 321,700 breast exams.
In other words, as child killing has risen in prominence at Planned Parenthood’s business centers, Planned Parenthood complains that the medical reimbursements (which include paying for abortions) are not sufficiently high enough. So it might be safe to ask the question: Is the government finally going to advocate for all human rights, including those of the preborn?
Well, not really.
Planned Parenthood is a profit-driven business. According to one Planned Parenthood official in Northern California when asked about the closing of those three clinics: “We’re continually looking for ways to streamline and find efficiencies. . . . This is part of that effort. This was done in a careful, deliberate way to ensure our long-term stability.”
That’s PP’s story.
But the truth of the matter is that, for years, pro-life Americans have called on the government to stop giving our tax dollars to this abortion giant, and in these fiscally constrained times, it is a good sign that taxpayers are finally being heard. Yet we must continue to understand that Planned Parenthood will still be making a killing on its practices, and the well-heeled Hollywood crowd will make sure that the funds Planned Parenthood needs will be raised—at least for now.
We will have to fight tooth and nail to make sure that the taxpayer dollar cuts remain in place and ultimately become permanent. So we still have a lot of work to do. But we are moving in the right direction and we will always voice our objections to aborting children because every preborn child is a human being. Whether that baby is surgically aborted, medically aborted with abortion drugs like RU-486, or chemically aborted with the pill and other such devices, the death of a single preborn child is unacceptable.
And contrary to the unbelievable statements of abortionist Dr. Willie Parker, who was described by the New York Times as a “black, feminist and driven by his Christian faith to provide abortions in the South, where women seeking to terminate a pregnancy have few options,” abortion is a crime against humanity. God never condones a single abortion!
Parker claims that his “Christian faith” drives him to kill babies and that he is “doing God’s work,” but those are the words of a heathen who has long ago abandoned the word of God for the depths of wickedness.
Yes, we have a lot of work to do, but for this moment in time we can thank the Lord for the Planned Parenthood closings that have occurred and we can resolve to work even harder than before.
And lest we forget, the preborn babies are 100 percent God’s children. So three percent serial killers like Planned Parenthood should know that their days of making a profit over the bodies of little babies are numbered.
We will not stop until Planned Parenthood and all of its cohorts are out of business.
