Reader PM sent in these photos. I’m really bummed I did not attend, I was out late the night before praying outside the strip club but the simple fact is that I forgot to go! I didn’t remember until the next day. Not very useful, that.
There were several scores of people who prayed and protested outside the Banned Parenthood South Dallas mill, though, and that is a great thing:
That’s a quite sizable crowd. Great job, everyone!
Unfortunately, PM related that there were no priests or religious in attendance. There continues to be a general paucity of priests praying outside abortion mills in this diocese, in marked contrast to some other dioceses. I don’t want to say too much, but I have received some fairly direct hints from local priests who would very much like to have a regular presence outside abortion mills that such is frowned upon by the chancery. At any rate, none were present for this particular protest.
On a related note, protestant pastor Stephen Broden, who ran for Congress in 2010 and used to be on the radio with Vicki Middleton quite a bit, was present and decried the fact that major black pastors in South Dallas do very little, if anything, to oppose the deliberate placement of abortion mills in the midst of their communities. Not only do they not oppose abortion mills, men like TD Jakes and other prominent black pastors rarely speak against abortion, for fear of alienating a good portion of their flock – of which, statistically speaking, some 60% have taken part in procured abortion. I was further disgusted to see a recent video showing TD Jakes just blowing off the significance of the Supreme Court decision legalizing pseudo-sodo-marriage, and even more, seeming to indicate he found little morally objectionable in sodomite behavior.
It is pretty weak solace knowing that it is not just Catholic shepherds who are leaving their flocks defenseless before the ravening wolves.
Stephen Broden is an effective speaker. He was always entertaining to watch in the KSKY studios with Vicki and Jim:
Indeed, where are the pastors of those very large black churches? And, for that matter, where is the black community in opposing this evil that strikes them gravely disproportionately. The pro-life movement is almost entirely a Caucasian and HIspanic phenomenon. To some degree that is to be expected since the pro-life community is dominated by Catholics and there have never been many African-American Catholics, but STILL, when you have a genocide aimed deliberately at your community, that afflicts blacks at rates 2-4 times greater than whites or Hispanics, shouldn’t that engender some kind of response, some kind of leadership from black pastors? It does not, though. Pastor Broden is a rare exception.
But these pastors won’t bring up the subject of abortion because blacks overwhelmingly favor keeping abortion legal (and, as the data shows, using it themselves), and they do not want to risk angering their
source of income flocks. It’s a huge scandal in its own right, but don’t look for it to change anytime soon.
Meanwhile, brave men like Stephen Broden will continue to be ostracized by the community.
There, I said it.
As I’m sure most readers are aware, muslim President Obama has concluded a disastrous treaty with Iran, basically allowing that insanely hostile muslim state to pursue a nuclear weapon’s development program with very few limitations, in exchange for which all sanctions – persisting for decades – against the world’s number one sponsor of islamist terror will be lifted. Hundreds of billions of dollars worth of frozen assets will be freed up, providing the regime both the with wealth it needs to remain in power, and excess cash with which to export death and destruction around the world.
But what most people do not know is that the Republican party, supposedly so opposed to his agenda, has taken positive steps to insure this treaty will pass into law. Months ago, the Republicans working under Senator Bob Corker voted to change procedure regarding the passage of this treaty. Instead of requiring a 2/3 majority as per regular senatorial procedure for a treaty, they changed it to a simply up/down vote. Since Obama could veto the Senate Republican voting down of the treaty, and since a veto requires a 2/3 majority to overcome, what the Republicans in essence did was to let the democrats pass this treaty on a 1/3+1 minority vote!
So everything you have seen from the Republicans on this subject has been complete, 100% kabuki theater. Or, more correctly, failure theater. All the committee hearings, all the sturm and drang, all the serious faces at the long-prepared press conferences, all the rhetoric used on establishment Republican media like Fox News has been complete balderdash. These men deliberately conspired with Obama months ago to make this treaty all but invincible in terms of up or down votes and it will become the law. And Iran will become a nuclear power, with a government that sees as its sacred mission the bringing about of an Armageddon that will lead to the exaltation of their satanic religion.
Do you remember how Mitch McConnell schemed to increase the debt limit, while suckering conservatives with a claim that conservatives voted against it?
The scheme worked like this: Congress authorized the president to increase the debt limit on his authority. (Actually, we’re already at the stage of falsehood, because he wouldn’t be raising the debt limit on his own authority, but with the authority Congress had just voted him.)
Now, the deal also granted, supposedly, Congress the power to block the raising of the debt limit, by voting a “resolution of disapproval.”
But here’s the thing: The president can veto that.
Which is what he did, of course.
So the debt limit was raised in this way:
1. Republicans voted to give Obama the power to raise the debt limit. They didn’t take responsibility for this themselves; they just said Obama could do so, if he wanted.
2. But Republicans retain the right to “block” it, supposedly, with a vote of disapproval.
3. But which Obama can veto — which every Republican knows he will do.
4. McConnell, Corker, and all the other other con artists now get to claim they didn’t raise the debt limit. Heck, they even voted aResolution of Disapproval against it.
What they don’t tell you is that this had been designed from the start to pass the debt limit increase, with a fake Resolution of Disapproval voted on and vetoed, which had been planned from the start, so that they could lie and say they “voted against” the increase in the debt limit.
Well, Corker’s alleged “compromise” with the Democrats and Obama on the Iran “deal” plays exactly the same game with foreign policy.
This whole scam is about giving Obama exactly what he wants – a nuclear Iran – while allowing the Republicans to pretend they voted against it, when they didn’t they actually conspired to insure this treaty would be approved.
And now that what they schemed and planned to do for months is coming fully to fruition, McConnell “admits” it will be impossible to stop Obama’s Iran treaty from passing, but what he doesn’t say is that he and Corker and other squishes conspired to make this happen.
Even just a couple of years ago, I very strongly believed that there were crucial distinctions between the democrat and republican parties that made support for the latter crucial, at any level of government. At the federal level in particular, I no longer believe that. Even with historic majorities in both houses the Republicans have not done a single thing to slow down, let alone retrench, the progress of socialism and the sexular pagan agenda in this country. In fact, ostensible Republicans like Justice Anthony Kennedy always seem to play the key role in assuring the next great leap downwards. And Chief John Roberts has twisted himself, and the law, into pretzels to keep Obamacare constitutional, when it blatantly is not.
The point seems to be, the elite has interests that conflict with the vast majority of the base (not to mention the moral order), and both parties now exist solely to service that elite. The elite likes Planned Barrenhood, so I doubt even this latest expose will lead to anything but a series of small headaches for them. If Republicans cannot ever convince even one or two demonrats to switch to their side on any important issue, and yet 6 or 10 or 20 Republicans can always be found to switch to the democrats, what is the point? They’ll never have a majority large enough to do anything to turn this nation around and stop the descent into amoral barbarism.
I’m sorry, the only thing the Republican party has been good for in the last 15 years is starting endless wars and getting more tax breaks for the very wealthy. In the meantime they do a whole bunch of bad stuff. That’s not enough to maintain my support.
You know eventually the Senate will be forced to vote again. If what I hear is coming actually does, even the most crazed pro-aborts are going to be forced to turn on this organization, at least as a political expedient if not out of true conviction. We’re still tipping icebergs here.
A new video produces evidence that Banned Parenthood and its partner companies in the baby murder and organ harvesting business routinely eviscerate fully alive babies outside the womb. This is the kind of thing that sent Kermit Gosnell to prison for life:
The video features Holly O’Donnell, a licensed phlebotomist who unsuspectingly took a job as a “procurement technician” at the fetal tissue company and biotech start-up StemExpress in late 2012. That’s the company that acts as a middleman and purchases the body parts of aborted babies from Planned Parenthood to sell to research universities and other places. StemExpress was partnered with Planned Parenthood up until last week, when it quietly announced it ended its relationship with the abortion corporation.
The new video includes O’Donnell’s eyewitness narrative of the daily practice of fetal body parts harvesting in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. She tells the harrowing story of harvesting an intact brain from a late-term male unborn baby whose heart was still beating after the abortion.
O’Donnell describes the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term baby aborted at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, California.
“‘I want to see something kind of cool,’” O’Donnell says her supervisor asked her. “And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
The San Jose Planned Parenthood does abortions up to 20 weeks of pregnancy. Referring to the beating heart of the aborted fetus, O’Donnell remarks, “I don’t know if that constitutes it’s technically dead, or it’s alive.”…….. [I pray most fervently for the conversion of your reprobate heart]
……..The group also indicates StemExpress has been cited in published scientific literature as a source of fetal hearts used for Langendorff perfusion, which keeps a heart beating after it is excised from the body. [Would that not be evidence admissible in court? Why has no one filed charges against StemExpress and PP?]
O’Donnell also tells how her StemExpress supervisor instructed her to cut through the face of the fetus in order to get the brain. [With the baby still alive. There is no depth to the horrors to which men will sink when they reject God]
“I can’t even describe what that feels like,” she says.
The video also features recordings of Dr. Ben Van Handel, the Executive Director of Novogenix Laboratories, LLC, and also of Perrin Larton, Procurement Manager of Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc. (ABR)…….
…..Van Handel admits, “There are times when after the procedure is done that the heart actually is still beating,” and Larton describes abortions she has seen where “the fetus was already in the vaginal canal whenever we put her in the stirrups, it just fell out.” [Well they can’t let all that valuable tissue go to waste just because the baby is alive and breathing! Quick, bring the saw!]
………This newest expose’ video further confirms what Dr. Theresa Deisher, a world-renowned scientist in the field of stem cell research who holds patents after discovering adult stem cells in human hearts, said in a recent interview. Deisher helped the pro-life activists who spent three years recording undercover videos and capturing documents and information showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts.
She says she has reviewed the information the activists collected and she is making a shocking claim that Planned Parenthood may be keeping some babies alive after the abortion procedure in order to better collect their organs for harvesting — such as their hearts.
“Biomedical companies prefer gestational ages of greater than 20 weeks for heart muscle,” she adds. “This is from reading their publications; so, I have always suspected that the babies in some of these cases were alive until their hearts were cut out.” [Just a thought – you see Bill Maher and other deranged atheists proclaim how much “evil” religion has foisted on the world. Give me a break, this latest PP scandal is exactly the kind of evil that godlessness provokes! Only people totally cut off from Grace could descend to this level of macabre evil. You want to see hell on earth, Bill Maher, keep pushing your satanic atheism.]
……The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.
The federal law that technically prohibits the sale of aborted babies and their body parts was written by a pro-abortion Congressman decades ago and essentially spells out a process by which sellers of aborted baby body parts can meet certain criteria that allows the sales to be legal. That’s why a Colorado congressman has introduced legislation to totally ban the sales of aborted baby body parts.
One would hope, at the end of all this scandal and stomach-wrenching heartbreak, that’s the very least that would result. But who knows, it seems only 30% of the American public – almost solely conservatives – have heard of this scandal, so total has been the media embargo on this subject. So it’s very likely nothing will happen to Planned Barrenhood. If so, what a damning indictment of this nation and the depths to which it has sunk, and what a frightening portent for the future.
God will not be mocked forever. At some point, there will be a horrific reckoning for this nation’s descent into the most despicable evil.
This video is pretty rough. Discretion advised.
Protest Planned Barrenhood August 22! August 17, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, awesomeness, Basics, contraception, Dallas Diocese, episcopate, General Catholic, Glory, Grace, Our Lady, scandals, Society, Tradition, Virtue.
This Saturday, August 22 there will be a nationwide protest effort against Planned Parenthood. In the DFW metroplex (Dioceses of both Dallas and Fort Worth), there are four Planned Butcher-baby locations. You can pray and protest outside any of them, although only the Dallas and Fort Worth locations murder babies and sell their parts for profit.
Since August 22 is a Saturday, more people will hopefully be able to attend. I plan to go to the mill in Dallas. The protest runs from 9a to 11a. Take part in this nationwide campaign to wage spiritual warfare against the dark principalities and powers that keep Banned Parenthood in operation!
Friends of the Unborn. Check the list below and find the nearest PP office to you. In charity to the UNBORN who are killed every day in most cruel and painful ways, you are needed to witness publicly that you believe that murdering the innocent cannot continue.
Do not wait! Check the locations below and pray for the courage and strength to STAND UP for life against the murderers.
Your voice is needed now, and your presence is desperately needed on August 22, 2015. The killing continues because we have not seriously combated against the evil done every day. [This is a most important point. But where has the failure most manifested itself? Is it among the laity, recent pontiffs, or the “middle management” of the Church, priests and especially bishops? Where has the leadership been most lacking?] Let us not grow weary, but take our rosaries to the streets and bear witness to the Love of God for his children.
Thank you and God bless you!

Speaking of efforts against PP, Catholics in Charlotte staged a large rally this past weekend and had over 350 souls present in attendance! Most positively, at least 6 priests were present performing minor exorcisms on the PP facility and blessing the crowd. Reader MFG apprised me of this and I am glad to share his photo with you:
In addition, the event garnered strong media coverage, quite a change from Dallas where even 10,000 souls at the March for Life elicits at best a back-page 100 word mention in the Dallas Morning News and which is embargoed entirely by the radio and TV media.
Finally, MFG also shared the following, which apparently appeared on Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s Facebook page:
That’s a move in the right direction. Typically, a good number of evangelical-types had to blaspheme the Mother of God and denigrate her key role in the economy of salvation as the Mediatrix of all Grace through their ignorance and hostility. It takes a pretty rare politician these days to post something like this. May his governance be always in accord with the virtues and Truth enshrined in Our Lady.
Not Assumption-related, but still my favorite image of the Blessed Mother, Our Lady of the Expectation:
I never had much regard for him, but I can definitively cross Ben Carson off my list:
Women who get pregnant from rape or incest should be able to go to the emergency room for an “abortion pill,” Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Thursday.
Speaking on Fox News Channel’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto,” the anchor asked Carson if he believes women should be able to get abortions in cases of rape or incest.
“I would hope that they would very quickly avail themselves of the emergency room, and in the emergency room, they have the ability to administer RU-486 and other possibilities before you have a developing fetus,” Carson said, more than five minutes into the interview.
Yes but if there is a “developing fetus” then RU-486 kills it, and we have no way of knowing how soon that may occur.
Is there any candidate aside from Huckabee who is 100% pro-life in all situations?
Sorry for limited and not so great content today, I had a really dumb meeting chew up my morning.

Know the Texas Republican “pro-lifers” who ain’t August 11, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in abdication of duty, Abortion, contraception, Dallas Diocese, error, foolishness, General Catholic, sadness, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, Society.
Texas Right to Life – which organization I strongly support – has compiled a helpful list of Texas state legislators (the lower house) who claim to be pro-life Republicans but who proposed dangerous legislation or worked against pro-life reforms. The graphic below lists them in detail:
Remember these names when it comes time to vote again in 2016. Note that some of these people may have some pro-life votes to their names – Texas has possibly the most pro-life legislature in the nation at present – but who turned out to be some of the weakest among the huge Republican majority who claim to be pro-life.
Also note (and the importance of this cannot be overstated) that the very powerful (and some might say, corrupt) House Speaker Joe Straus had a perfect 0% rating when it came to pro-life legislation. That is par for the course for Straus, who has done more than anyone else to keep the overwhelming pro-life majority in the legislature from enacting even more meaningful laws against abortion and the entire culture of death. Please support challenges to his leadership from pro-life sources.
You can also view a list of those who excelled in their pro-life work in the recently concluded legislative session here.
The entire list is here. Both my representative and senator compiled 100% ratings but neither merited mention on the pro-life heroes list.
May this soon change. And may the legislature find the wherewithal to defend perfectly innocent unborn lives.
A belated conversion for our dear leader? Yeah, right, it’s his (and the left’s) dogmatic situational ethics at work yet again. Some killing for the sale of human parts is bad, others just wonderful:
President Barack Obama told a group of young African leaders on Monday that harvesting organs from humans that are killed as part of an African ritual was “craziness” and a “cruel” tradition that needed to stop. He warned of dehumanizing marginal groups of humans and of the problems that arise when “you are not able to see someone else as a human being.” [Liberals frequently have deep problems with self-awareness and self-contradiction, but Blojamba has taken the narcissistic bubble to a whole new level]
In a wide-ranging question and answer session with members of the Young African Leaders Initiative [YALI], a woman from Kenya said “Persons with albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes. My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.” [how about the atrocity of abortion, which is available in many African states?]
Obama decried the practice and went on to encourage the young people to do everything in their power to fight on the behalf of vulnerable humans. [get this…….]
“Young people, you can lead the way and set a good example. But it requires some courage because the old thinking, people will push back at you and if you don’t have convictions and courage to be able stand up for what you think is right, then cruelty will perpetuate itself,” he said. [There is none so blind…….And talk about hubris. This man, who holds the most radically pro-abort views of any president in this nation’s history, had the unmitigated gall to say this!?!] He added, “If there’s one thing I want YALI leaders to come out with, it’s the notion of you are strong by taking care of the people who are vulnerable, by looking after the minority, looking after the disabled, looking after the vulnerable. You’re not strong by putting people down you’re strong by lifting them up. That’s the measure of a leader.” [Physician, heal thyself, you self-deluded narcissistic bully]
Obama also tied the practice of harvesting organs from albinos with racism and discrimination against gay people[oh, naturally] and urged consistency in how they view the sanctity of human life if they want to complain about human rights abuses.
I know, file this post under the water is wet category, but sometimes, it’s important to highlight the depths of delusion that are rampant on the socio-political left. This guy is their paragon, and yet he is utterly blind to his own mammoth hypocrisy.
A thought occurred to me in concluding this post. We see Obama try, inanely, to tie “discrimination against ‘gay people'” with African animist human sacrifice (have some of the animists present at the Assisi confabs taken part in this satanic practice?), while ignoring his feverish support for abortion. But we are told by the radical sodomite crowd that they are born that way. Let’s suppose that they are right (not that it would make the slightest difference with regard to the immorality of their acts), and that concrete, irrefutable proof a “gay gene” is discovered, and more than that, prenatal testing can discern the presence of this gene. And let us further surmise that, like the genocide against Down’s Syndrome babies, parents decide en masse to abort their “gay” babies.
What would the extreme pro-abort, pro-sodomy crowd do in that instance? I’m sure they’d amaze us with their double-think, decrying abortion over an inclination towards sexual perversion as a terrible evil while still encouraging, nay demanding, it in every other instance, including Down’s Syndrome, autism, and whatever else they feel makes a life “not worth living.” But it would probably be quite fun to watch them tie themselves into rhetorical knots with all the special pleading, and I might expect a huge increase in the price of wheat what with the billions of straw men that would have to be fabricated to advance their unsupportable position. Schadenfreude certainly is not a virtue, but sometimes its allure can prove darned near irresistible.
I know this priest. I’m not sure whether I’m supposed to say his name. Nonetheless, God bless him and those taking part in the minor exorcism and Rosary outside a Denver Planned Barrenhood.
This kind of leadership is priceless. So is this kind of spiritual warfare. Let us have much more of the same.
BTW, New Hampshire de-funded Planned Butcherhood today. Not much, but it’s a start.
Jeb Bush oversaw donations of tens of millions to Planned Butcherhood while director of philanthropy August 5, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, Basics, contraception, disaster, episcopate, error, foolishness, General Catholic, horror, It's all about the $$$, paganism, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
As if I needed another reason to never, ever vote for a Bush again. Won’t these people just please go away and stop afflicting us with their eastern establishment RINO liberal horse hockey?
Until the eve of his presidential campaign, Jeb Bush was director of a philanthropy that gave tens of millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood and financed its advocacy of “unrestricted access to abortion” around the world. The charity also approved money to global abortion providers while he sat on its board.
In 2010, Jeb was named one of the founding directors of the Bloomberg Family Foundation, established as a tax-exempt foundation to advance the vision of former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He resigned from the board at the end of 2014 to prepare his presidential campaign.
While a Bush spokesman has responded to concerns by saying that Bush would not have voted on every initiative of the foundation, a pro-life leader told LifeSiteNews it “stretches credibility” that Bush was unaware of the foundation’s pro-abortion work, given the centrality of such work to the foundation’s mission, and its scope. [It’s complete and utter garbage that he was ignorant of this. Whether Jeb Bush is pro-life is open to debate (I doubt he is pro-life as you or I would consider it, he is probably pro-life when it is politically expedient to be so). What is not open to debate is that Bloomberg is as radical a partisan of the sexular pagan agenda as one can find. Few have done more to advocate for evils like abortion, pseudo-sodo-marriage, and other perversions as he has. Bush knew this and chose to work for his organization, anyways, citing the other good it does. This only confirms the horrible formation and moral degeneracy of so many Catholics (that our bishops have allowed and even encouraged), that Bush is ignorant of the fundamental moral law, we cannot cooperate with evil that good may come of it]
LifeSiteNews reached out to Bush for comment, but did not hear back by press time.
$50 million to ‘reproductive health’ and Planned Parenthood
In March of 2014, the Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $50 millionundertaking to expand “reproductive health,” including lobbying foreign nations to loosen restrictions on abortion.
Bloomberg announced a major partnership with Planned Parenthood-Global to train and equip abortion activists in pro-life countries. [This is so evil. It’s not just giving money to Planned Barrenhood, it’s trying to force countries to make baby-killing legal.]
There is a lot more. This is a really evil initiative by Bloomberg. Given the source, I’m not surprised he is pushing it, at all. I’m also not surprised that Bush would cooperate with it. They’re all squishes. Michael Bloomberg is a very wealthy man and could contribute many millions to a presidential campaign. So if that requires spreading abortion to reluctant countries and the deaths of millions of babies……not a tough call for Jeb, apparently.
If it came down to a choice between Hillary or Jeb, I’d stay home or write in someone.
When will our bishops start enforcing a tiny bit of Doctrine? This is solid evidence of direct cooperation in grave sin, the promotion of baby-murder. What will they not tolerate? Oh, right……..
Fifth undercover video: Planned Barrenhood Houston admits selling fully intact murdered babies – UPDATED August 4, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Abortion, contraception, disaster, disconcerting, General Catholic, horror, paganism, scandals, secularism, self-serving, sexual depravity, sickness, Society, unadulterated evil.
The hammers continue to drop. This slow drip release of increasingly damning videos is just obliterating Planned Barrenhood’s already shattered credibility. Anything they attempt to say in way of defense or explanation may well be exploded in a future video release. No wonder they’ve resorted to lawfare try to enlist the power of the leviathan state in blocking further releases.
In the latest video, Melissa Farrell, research director for Houston area Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast admits to selling fully intact aborted babies, which strongly implies delivering babies intact and then allowing them to die of neglect (or other, even more foul means):
The pro-life advocates behind the four shocking videos exposing Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of aborted babies for research have released a 5th video today that catches a Planned Parenthood official discussing how the abortion business sells “fully intact” aborted babies.
The video, which follows Senate Democrats defeating a bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood, makes it appear the Planned Parenthood abortion business may be selling the “fully intact” bodies of unborn babies purposefully born alive and left to die.
Planned Parenthood could be breaking the federal law known as the Born Alive Infants Protection Act that requires abortion clinics, hospitals and other places that do abortions to provide appropriate medical care for a baby born alive after a failed abortion or purposefully birthed to “let die.” That would be one of the potential ways Planned Parenthood could produce a “fully intact” baby to sell to StemExpress for research. Most “crunchy” abortion methods would do damage to the baby’s body.
The fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact aborted babies……..
……….The investigators ask Farrell how she will frame a contract in which they pay a higher price for higher quality fetal body parts, and she replies, “We can work it out in the context of–obviously, the procedure itself is more complicated,” suggesting that “without having you cover the procedural cost” and paying for the abortion, the higher specimen price could be framed as “additional time, cost, administrative burden.”
Farrell finally summarizes her affiliate’s approach to fetal tissue payments: “If we alter our process, and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this. It’s all just a matter of line items.”…… [I wonder, do you think this poor creature would use such cold and calculating terms if she were discussing, say, parts removed from murdered puppies? That’s the thing about WASPs……they love animals, but they can’t stand people]
…….Farrell also indicates to the investigators over lunch that the specimen sales from her department contribute significantly to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s overall finances: “I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States. Larger than any the other affiliates’ combined.”
And that same Planned Barrenhood Gulf Coast is currently in federal court fending off charges of millions of dollars in Medicaid fraud. Why anyone would think an organization whose sole purpose is the murder and sale of human beings for profit would have moral compunctions regarding theft, enabling child rape, or any other evil is beyond me.
Now for the video. I must warn this is perhaps the most explicit yet in terms of horrors to be seen. It explicitly shows an aborted 20 week twin being torn apart for its valuable organs. I have twins that were born at 34 weeks. 14 weeks……..life or death……..heaven or hell. Someone made the wrong choice. And I think how my wife and I are praying and struggling to bring one more life into the world!:
If you watch the discussion around the 5 minute mark (starting maybe 4:45) you can see one of the investigators allude to the fact that they are giving valuable remuneration for these baby parts, which is illegal per federal law. This part of the discussion basically involves yet another Planned Butcherhood official – for the 4th, 5th time – stating that they can simply create false costs and pretended expenses to cover the large amount of income they will receive for murdering babies for their body parts. The whole conversation was about saying “we sell baby parts for profit” without saying it. She admits at a luncheon that her job is to create new revenue streams. What other streams could there be from the murder of perfectly innocent children? I bet Abby Johnson underestimated how much this Houston PB makes off the sale of murdered babies.
What do you think of this campaign by Center for Medical Progress? Will it be successful in converting people away from their support for abortion? Will it result in Banned Parenthood being defunded at the federal level? What of the states, will PP be hounded out of the more conservative states by constant litigation and investigations? Or with Obama in office will all this effort just get flushed down the memory hole?
We’ve seen so many exposes, so many revelations, and yet this evil organization remains in operation. Have we reached the point where a large enough majority of Americans can simply no longer be reached by appeals to decency and morality to effect any real change? Put another way: have Americans, by and large, become so addicted to all manner of hedonism, fornication, and adultery that they will never allow abortion – the backstop to it all – to be completely taken away from them? Might it become a regional phenomenon, where abortion remains legal in 30 states but is unobtainable in 20?
It is an incredible indictment of this nation that after the very first, shocking exposes of Planned Barrenhood it was not sued and legislated out of existence.
Speaking of indictments, that Obama-loving judge in Sodom by the Bay just extended his emergency restraining order against Center for Medical Progress from releasing video footage taken at the National Abortion Federation (NAF) convention from being released until at least the end of August, when a full hearing on the matter will be held. NAF is arguing that if the footage is released, they fear “its members that they would suffer harassment, intimidation and even violence……..” which begs the question……..just how damning is the footage?
Further, it has been revealed that the NAF requires all participants to sign non-disclosure agreements in order to even attend their convention, which seems to point to a very strong motivation to hide what is discussed therein.
I’m sure there will be even more explosive revelations to come. Right now, it appears Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast lied in testimony given to Louisiana state investigators, claiming they never, ever sell butchered baby parts.
UPDATE: The Repubniks were unable to pass a bill defunding Planned Barrenhood last night. The broken Senate, where nothing can happen without a supermajority of 60 votes, failed to pass the defunding effort in spite of a vote in favor of 53-46. Mitch McConnell refuses to use the same “nuclear option” (advancing legislation based on a simple majority of 51 rather than a supermajority of 60) that Harry Reid used with abandon.
Sure, the Repubniks are better than demonrats…….just not better enough to ever make even the slightest difference. With historic majorities in both houses they still cannot block even the most atrocious evil imaginable.
