Week in Review – Planned Parenthood Mobilizes Abortion Van and Vasectomy Van Dubbed the ‘Nutcracker’
This week, the bi-monthly Wednesday STOPP Report brought news of a disturbing new work-around for Planned Parenthood to get around “pro-life laws.” The abortion machine will now utilize mobile “clinics” to perform abortions and sterilize men via vasectomies.
In the WSR, Rita Diller, interim STOPP director, reported that Parenthood announced it will deploy its first abortion facility on wheels this month, when it sends its abortion van out in Illinois to dispense abortion pills to kill babies up to 11 weeks’ gestation, with plans to commit surgical van-based abortions on older babies in the near future. The reason for the van? To work around abortion-restrictive laws in neighboring states. According to NPR coverage, Planned Parenthood will determine the routes it will follow by “reviewing data to determine where patients are coming from and looking at healthcare facilities, churches, and other locations as potential stopping-off points.” Imagine, going to your local church to kill your baby. What will they think of next?
Well, let me answer that question. Planned Parenthood is partnering with Dr. Esgar Guarin to provide vasectomies in November across two states. Guarin, an activist for vasectomies, will start out his “de-fathering” tour at three Planned Parenthood facilities in Missouri, where he will do 60 vasectomies inside and outside the facilities before heading across Iowa in a van decorated with large sperm and dubbed “The Nutcracker” to perform more mobile vasectomies. The stunt is done in conjunction with World Vasectomy Day. An ABC News report points to a perceived urgency in getting vasectomies after the Dobbs ruling set aside the constitutional right to abortion.
The report goes on to quote a truck driver who will reluctantly take advantage of the opportunity to get a free vasectomy because “it is the right ethical choice” for him since he does not want to “thrust the responsibility of birth control on partners anymore” with today’s crunch in abortion availability. The 31-year-old said he has been “priced out” of having children because of the expense involved. But, hey, vasectomies are free at the Nutcracker van.
Planned Parenthood’s end game is destruction of the family. It is a tool in the arsenal of evil, and it knows no limits. The children it can’t kill before birth, it works tirelessly to corrupt and lead into sin. Welcome to the lawless, fatherless world of Planned Parenthood where mothers and fathers are led to fear and hate children because of their cost and inconvenience, where adults believe that impeding their ability to have children is “the ethical thing to do.” We must double down on prayer and fasting to overcome the evil that is Planned Parenthood. Marriage is the cradle of life, the cradle of the Church. Planned Parenthood must be stopped from robbing and destroying the cradle.
