There have literally been hundreds of tweets about the gruesome Center for Medical Progress videos and the resulting fallout—including some from the infamous Planned Parenthood itself. We found these a bit over the top, though they do reflect the arrogance of the baby-killing/harvesting organization.
For example, the tweet “Ho ho, hey hey, Planned Parenthood is here to stay!” musters a couple of cerebral reactions from this pro-life veteran, primarily that there must be a fear that the abortion giant is not so sure about that anymore! After all, how many slugs to the gut can one deformed entity take before it crumbles on its own evil ways?
In addition, the #standwithPP slogan generated many posts, including “Too bad for anti-woman health politicians” and a celebratory tweet that the defund Planned Parenthood measure failed to pass in the United States Senate.
But for every tweet American Life League cited this week in our Social Media update there is a powerful pro-life retort. We celebrate the ingenuity, the creativity, and the faith of the tens of thousands of pro-life Americans who have seen through the veil of lies and are consistently unmasking the truth behind the façade America knows as Planned Parenthood. As we said in our Friday update, “In 2014 Planned Parenthood shut down 34 centers while opening a measly seven. We shouldn’t be referring to Planned Parenthood as the Walmart of abortion. It’s the K-Mart of abortion.”
In response to PP’s celebratory remarks about the Senate vote, we responded,
Planned Parenthood calls the blocking of a Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood “great news.” This might make for good Twitter material, but the executives at Planned Parenthood must be chewing their fingernails. In all of its 100 years of operation it has never lost as much political sway as it has at this very moment. This week we’ve seen that the majority of both houses of Congress are in favor of sending Planned Parenthood back out to sea without a government lifejacket.
In other words, Planned Parenthood is on the ropes, and frankly, regardless of the social media hoopla, it knows it!
Yet this is not the only signal America has received about the desperation flooding Planned Parenthood’s nervous system. Its “Clergy Advisory Board” released a statement telling America that killing preborn babies is God’s work. The Planned Parenthood-generated headline states that the “Planned Parenthood Clergy Advocacy Board Releases Response to Smear Campaign,” and then goes on to knock the CMP video series as “politically motivated, heavily edited, and secretly recorded.” Further, the statement reads, “As faith leaders committed to justice, honesty, and liberty, we are troubled by the decades-long campaign of harassment against Planned Parenthood and those they serve. Our faiths demand care for those marginalized by poverty and other oppressions. Faith leaders have supported Planned Parenthood for nearly 100 years because of our shared goals: every person—regardless of income, race, or religion—deserves access to safe, affordable, high-quality health care.”
These things are so disturbing that one becomes nauseated by the realization that there really are folks in this world who can, in all sincerity, equate child killing, destruction of the souls of children, and lies about truth in healthcare with “religious traditions.”
Seeing this evil prance around our nation from one taxpayer dole to the next we are reminded of this verse from the first book of Peter, “Be calm but vigilant because your enemy the devil is prowling round like a roaring lion, looking for someone to eat. Stand up to him, strong in faith and in the knowledge that your brothers all over the world are suffering the same things.”
Be thankful for the valiant work of David Daleiden and his collaborators at the Center for Medical Progress. Praise God for the many pro-life organizations teaching truth without apology, including our own work over the past 40 years, in this quest to dismantle the aura of credibility that has cloaked Planned Parenthood and its dastardly agenda.
Today the veil is finally being lifted and Planned Parenthood in all its ugliness is being revealed.
God will not be mocked, my friends, and evil will fail every time under His awesome power.
Keep up the prayers and the hard work, and continue teaching the truth because Planned Parenthood—regardless of its rumblings—is going down.
