Watch: Planned Parenthood Rocked By A 4th Undercover Video. 2 Sick Words Uttered At The End Make It Worse

A pro-life medical ethics group released a fourth video in its undercover Planned Parenthood series on Thursday, adding further (at times, graphic) evidence to the charge that the largest provider of abortions in America is engaging in the trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts.

In a statement on Thursday, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) indicates that its newly released “undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.”

CMP notes that “Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) is a wealthy, multi-state Planned Parenthood affiliate that does over 10,000 abortions per year. PPRM has a contract to supply aborted fetal tissue to Colorado State University in Fort Collins.”

As in the three previously released videos, actors purporting to work for a human tissue procurement company meet and discuss their needs with Planned Parenthood representatives.

Dr. Ginde, the PPRM medical director, is very cooperative in seeking out ways to get the buyers what they want. At one point, she admits her abortionists need to improve their skills for the sake of harvesting more intact body parts and be “more gentle.”

“We’d have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they don’t crush” fetal organs during 2nd trimester abortions,” says the abortion doctor.

She tells the buyers that oftentimes, fully intact fetuses are removed following the dilation and evacuation procedures.

“Ginde also suggests ways for Planned Parenthood to cover-up its criminal and public relations liability for the sale of aborted body parts,” CMP reports. “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” she says.

“It makes it look better?” a buyer asks.

“Yeah,” she replies. “And in the public I think it makes a lot more sense for it to be in the research vein, than, I’d say business venture.”

“That’s how we talk about it,” a buyer affirms.

“Yeah!” exclaims Ginde.

Ginde also gives a word of caution: “If you have someone in a really anti [-abortion] state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”

The doctor also assures the buyers, nonetheless, that the PPRM attorney has got the legal side of what they do covered. “He’s got it figured out that he knows that even if, because we talked to him in the beginning, you know, we were like, ‘We don’t want to get called on,’ you know, ‘selling fetal parts across states.’”

The buyers ask: “And you feel confident that they’re building those layers?” Ginde replies: “I’m confident that our Legal will make sure we’re not put in that situation.”

After the meeting, the doctor takes the buyers into a lab at the Denver facility, where they are shown fetal body parts.

One asks a Planned Parenthood medical assistant, who is working with aborted babies’ body parts: “What crack was that? The little bits of the skull?” and receives an affirmative response.

Ginde states that regarding the pricing of body parts, “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.”

CMP notes that the sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).

As the buyers and Planned Parenthood workers identify body parts from the last fetus in the path lab, a Planned Parenthood medical assistant announces: “Another boy!”

Thousands Of American Women Just Stood Up And Sent Planned Parenthood A Message They Can’t Ignore

Rallies took place throughout the United States earlier this week to demand an end to the taxpayer funding of Planned Parenthood.

World Net Daily reports that an “estimated 12,000 Americans in as many as 65 U.S. cities” took to the streets Tuesday to protest Planned Parenthood’s alleged violation of federal laws in the harvesting and sale of body parts from aborted babies.

The “Women Betrayed” rallies, coordinated by Students for Life of America and Pro-Life Future, came in the wake of the release of a series of damning videos by the pro-life group Center for Medical Progress, implicating Planned Parenthood and high ranking officials in the organization of participating in the gruesome practice.

Tuesday’s rally at the U.S. Capitol featured the following speakers: Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul; Dr. Ben Carson; Reps. Marsha Blackburn, Andy Harris, Tim Huelskamp and Chris Smith; Marilyn Musgrave of the Susan B. Anthony List; Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America; Jeanneane Maxon of Americans United for Life; and Arina Grossu of the Family Research Council, according to WND.

Cruz gave a fiery address calling multiple times for the Department of Justice to open criminal investigations into Planned Parenthood and its officials seen in the videos. He encouraged Americans, regardless of their views on abortion, to watch the “horrifying” videos and ask: “Are these my values?”

“When we see the truth, after a time for truth comes a time for action. Today is a time for action,” the Texas senator said.

“Today the U.S. Department of Justice should open a criminal investigation whether Planned Parenthood nationally is a criminal enterprise. breaking the law.

“When you have multiple individuals caught on tape apparently confessing to multiple felonies that carry with them long jail times, justice must be served. I call on the U.S. Department of Justice to enforce the criminal laws and investigate Planned Parenthood,” Cruz said, drawing loud applause and cheers from the crowd of hundreds.

Sen. Rand Paul agreed with Cruz that the time to act is now and offered promising news to those in attendance. “There comes a time in the history of nations when we will all be judged on whether or not we took a stance for life. Now is that time,” Paul said. “Today we take a stand, and today I have good news: the Senate will vote on defunding Planned Parenthood before we go home in August,” he added, causing cheers to erupt from the audience.

Former pediatric neurosurgeon and presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson observed that the videos exposing Planned Parenthood have highlighted just how unstable the ground on which those who support abortion stand.

“I spent so many nights in the operating room, all night long, working, toiling so hard to save one of those lives,” said Carson. “You know one of the most wonderful aspects of life is when later on, you can see that same little baby as a 25- or 30-year-old who has their own little baby. And yet there was somebody, at some point, saying it was just a clump of cells that didn’t mean anything. Well isn’t it funny that those same people who say it’s a meaningless clump of cells are trying to get livers and lungs and kidneys? How could you have such organs from a meaningless clump of cells?”

“There was a time in this country where there were people who thought it was OK to own other people. They thought they could do anything they wanted with them because they belong to me. ‘I can beat them. I can kill them. I can do whatever I want to do to them.’ We, fortunately, as a society, matured and began to actually think about what the words of our Declaration of Independence and what the words of our Constitution actually meant. Well, those words are meaningful today, too, because they talk about life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Well guess what? There can be no liberty and pursuit of happiness if there is no life.”

On Thursday, the White House indicated that if Congress votes to defund Planned Parenthood, the president will oppose the effort. Asked if Obama would veto the bill, spokesman Josh Earnest said: “I know there has been an effort on the part of some Republicans to play some politics with some selectively edited videos…I can tell you that on balance, the President would not be supportive of any congressional effort” to defund the organization. “That is an effort that we oppose,” he added.

The Center for Medical Progress has posted unedited versions of the videos on its website.

Guess Which American Institution Is A Greater Failure Than The Federal Government?

There is NO DOUBT in my mind that the biggest failure in America is the establishment church. It’s a bigger failure than even the federal government. Now that’s saying something.

No people in Church history had been given the rich heritage of the churches of America. The Church of America was birthed by the courage and sacrifice of men such as Jonas Clark, John Peter Muhlenberg, James Caldwell, Joab Houghton, et al. These men stood in the gap and rallied the Christians in Colonial America to dispose of a tyrannical British Crown and to help create a land of liberty such as the world had never before seen.

Alas, the courage of the patriot pastors of Colonial America has been forgotten, their sacrifice wasted. Everything they purchased with their dynamic and powerful preaching has been squandered by generations of gutless, ear-tickling men-pleasers in these entertainment playgrounds known as churches. What a waste!

However, as far gone as we are, if even a significant percentage of the 300,000-plus evangelical churches (not to mention Catholic, Episcopalian, etc.) would stand up NOW and begin sounding the clarion call of national repentance and constitutional liberty, the ship of state could yet be turned around. But there is NO SIGN of that happening. NONE!

What would it take to get the pastors of America to take a stand? One would have thought that expunging prayer and Bible reading from our schools back in 1962 and 1963 would have done it. It didn’t. One would have thought that copying the Nazi playbook for gun control back in 1968 would have done it. It didn’t. One would have thought that legalizing the cold-blooded killing of unborn babies back in 1973 would have done it. It didn’t. One would have thought that beginning the construction of a Police State back in 2001 would have done it. It didn’t. And one would have thought that the legalization of same-sex marriage would have done it. It hasn’t.

At this point, it does seem obvious that the vast majority of pastors in America are content to allow this country to nose-dive into destruction without as much as a whimper. Again, what a waste!

It is one thing to be born in an enslaved country with the weight of the state forbidding public dissent or freedom of assembly, worship, and speech. It is one thing to be born with the shackles of bondage firmly fastened around your neck from the time of your entrance into the world. It is another thing altogether to be born in a land of liberty where one’s ancestors broke the shackles of tyranny at the cost of their very lives–thus allowing us to live in a land where the freedom of dissent, the freedom to elect our civil magistrates, the freedom of speech, assembly, and worship (not to mention the freedom to keep and bear arms) are sacrosanct–only to then turn around and squander our liberty and to allow would-be tyrants to take it from us without a fight. What a waste! What a horrible, terrible, awful waste! And that is exactly what the last few generations of so-called “preachers” have done.

Think what these pussyfooting preachers have lost: they failed to preserve the sanctity of life; they failed to preserve the sanctity of marriage; they failed to preserve the sanctity of the Holy Scriptures; they failed to preserve the sanctity of liberty; they failed to preserve the sanctity of honesty and decency; they even failed to preserve the sanctity of the Church itself.

Truly, “Ichabod” is written over the establishment church in America. And, as a result, “Anathema” is being written over the entire nation. I am convinced that any spiritual renewal that might still come will mostly bypass America’s establishment churches and will be carried by nontraditional, non-aligned, unincorporated, unaffiliated–maybe even underground–fellowships. This is what is currently happening in communist–and other oppressed–countries. And America is fast becoming an oppressed country.

In fact, if the pastors in America had even a fraction of the man-stuff that the pastors in Colonial America had, they, too, would be sounding the clarion call of independence and secession. Like King George’s England, Washington, D.C., has become a corrupt cesspool of wickedness that is using every means possible to wrap its tyrannical tentacles around every State, city, hamlet, and village in the entire country. At some point, the only options freedom-loving people in this country will have are slavery or secession. And that point may come a whole lot sooner than most of us expect.

So, what has happened to the Church? How did our pastors become so timid? How could the direct descendants of the Pilgrims, Puritans, and Patriots become so cowardly? Here are the reasons:

1. The Church, which is the Bride of Christ, entered into an adulterous relationship with Caesar when it put on the state’s official wedding band: otherwise known as the 501c3 non-profit, tax-exempt organization status. At that moment, it became a “creature of the state” and left the sanctity of its spiritual wedding to Christ. That happened in 1954. In just a little over a short half-century later, the Church has lost not only the virtue of its own spiritual institution, but also the virtue of the most fundamental institution of all: Holy Matrimony.

Yet, instead of sounding forth the message of truth regarding this attack against Western Civilization itself, our pastors stand mute and apathetic, holding onto their precious tax-exempt status with their last waning breath. In practice, our pastors are saying exactly what the Pharisees said in Jesus’ time: “We have no king but Caesar.”

2. The heretical misinterpretation of Romans 13 that teaches Christians must submit to civil government “no-matter-what.”

This fallacious doctrine has damned America. Our pastors and churches are following the Nazi playbook verbatim. True resistance to evil must, by nature, come mostly from spiritual sources, because the battle between good and evil is mostly a spiritual battle. Therefore, it is obligatory that our spiritual leaders be the ones leading this battle. Alas, for the most part, this is not happening.

In the name of Romans 13, our spiritual leaders have abandoned the battlefield. They have sounded retreat. They have waved the white flag. They have capitulated. They have surrendered. And the enemy has taken the field.

I submit that at the judgment bar of God, these squeamish milquetoast preachers are going to have to apologize, not only to Clark, Muhlenberg, Caldwell, and Houghton, but also to every courageous man and woman throughout history. Think of Gideon and Samson and Samuel and David and Vashti and Esther and Daniel and Micaiah and Jeremiah and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Think of Simon Peter and James and John, and even Paul, the man who penned Romans 13.  Think of the Anabaptists, the Waldensians, the Protestant Reformers, and the martyrs of the Dark Ages. Think of the Scots and Irishmen and Americans. Think of the persecuted people of Tibet and Burma and Sudan and Saudi Arabia and China and Palestine. Think of the millions of people throughout the centuries who stood against oppressors and tyrants of all stripes and types–be they political, religious, or military–and said, “No!”

I say again: what a waste!

3. The heretical “feel-good,” entertainment-oriented Prosperity Theology that has infested America’s churches.

Men such as Joel Osteen are Pied Pipers of a sleep-walking church whose music is only serving to march these unsuspecting souls into the gulags of a modern inquisition. Yet, these sycophants lead the largest churches in the country.

“Like priest, like people.” People have heaped to themselves teachers having itching ears. They have sown to the wind, and they are reaping a whirlwind. They are like the Israelites of old who refused to listen to God’s prophets and, instead, gave heed to the hireling-prophets of Ahab.

4. Then, there are the folks who think they must help God fulfill Bible prophecy.

First, there is Mr. Warmonger himself: John Hagee. This man, and thousands like him, have convinced their churches that they must help God establish His Kingdom on the earth. They have appointed themselves judge, jury, and executioner of all things pertaining to the Middle East. Their loyalty does not reside in America; it resides in the modern state of Israel–a nation that has absolutely NOTHING to do with Biblical Israel. Their erroneous interpretation of Genesis 12 has created a climate of war and hatred that is tearing the soul out of America. All of these perpetual wars that are being fomented in the Middle East are done in the name of Genesis 12, in much the same way that our domestic internment is being facilitated in the name of Romans 13.

Folks, God didn’t need anyone’s help when He sent His Son to earth the first time; and He doesn’t need anyone’s help when He decides to send His Son to earth the second time.

Secondly, there are those well-meaning Christians (I think) who actually believe it is their God-ordained duty to do nothing to resist evil.

I received this post on my Facebook page just this week: “None of these things [the evil, calamitous things happening to our country] could have been prevented, nor should they have been. All these things must come to pass before the Lord returns. In this world, nations rise and nations fall, and this one just happens to be falling right now. Praise God! I praise God for the destruction of this evil nation! I wish the Lord would return right now! But unfortunately, he will not return until ‘everything that must happen, has happened.’ The sooner these things happen, the sooner the Lord can return.”

I wonder if this Christian gentleman is going to be praising God when his children or grandchildren are put to the rack, or his mother and father are tortured, or his wife and sisters are molested and ravaged.

Yes, I realize that our sainted forebears often endured the most hideous treatment with spiritual and moral courage, but no one in their right mind would wish such treatment on their loved ones–especially if they had the power to prevent it. This man rejoices over his country’s destruction? This man is NOT in his right mind. The prophets of old wept over the destruction of their beloved nation. Jesus wept over the impending destruction of the city of Jerusalem.

But this is the kind of rationale one gets from these pastors and churches who use the Scripture to brainwash people into attitudes of fatalism. They are the ones who become nothing more than their own self-fulfilling prophecies. They stand back and do nothing and then claim to praise God when their own indifference grows into their own destruction. Such people are NOT in their right minds.

Famed Nineteenth Century revivalist Charles Finney is widely reported as saying: “If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the public press lacks moral discernment, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the church is degenerate and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses its interest in Christianity, the pulpit is responsible for it. If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.”

Amen!

The Church is to blame for legalized abortion on demand; the Church is to blame for the SCOTUS decision to legalize same-sex “marriage”; the Church is to blame for the growing Police State in this country; the Church is to blame for America’s war-mongering abroad; and the Church is to blame for the growing influence of false religions in America.

When America is lying in the graveyard of history, the epitaph on its tombstone will read: “Here lies the United States of America: killed by the apathy and indifference of its pastors and churches.”

As I again reflect on the giants who thundered forth liberty from the pulpits of Colonial America, and I see the behavior of so many of our pastors today, I can only repeat: What a waste!

Planned Parenthood: Custom Killing 20 Week Old Babies To Harvest Their Organs

So, let me get this straight.

If you have an objection to a Planned Parenthood staffer telling an undercover investigator that they can do things to make an aborted fetus “less crunchy” in an attempt to preserve viable organs, you have declared a war on women.

If you object to using the euphemism “fetal tissue” when they really mean “body parts” harvested from late term, partial birth abortions, than you have declared a war on women.

Well, I don’t know about that. But I do know that Planned Parenthood has apparently declared a war on viable babies, and I know it because I saw the video and read the unedited transcripts.

If there were ever a reason to declare a war on a half a billion tax dollars funding this organization, this is it.

And their lamo response?

The video was “heavily edited,” and shooting the video was possibly illegal since the poor miscreants from Planned Parenthood didn’t know they were being recorded.

As my step children would have said before they all became adults (because their mother wisely decided to have them), duuuhhhh…

Even the moron doctor who said she wanted a Lambo when she was haggling over the price probably would have cleaned up her big fat white wine rinsed mouth if she knew she was being recorded.

ABC News does a program with John Quinones called “What Would You Do?” where they set up a whole situation somewhere with actors and hidden cameras. This would have been a fascinating episode because all that was missing was the big reveal with John stepping out and introducing himself. Nobody says that ABC has violated anybody’s rights.

What do you think the abortionist would have said under those circumstances?

What would you have done—no matter your political leaning—if you were at the next table?

Harry Reid (D-Ritz Carlton, Washington DC) defended Planned Parenthood, noting that the videos were “politically motivated” and that fetal tissues had been used in research for a long time.

The part about fetal tissue is true.

But whole organs? Which were harvested by a doctor who—for lack of a better term—custom kills a baby so as not to damage the organs?

I don’t know about you, but that’s a little too much playing God for me.

It sounds pretty close to what Dr. Josef Mengele (The Nazi Angel of Death) did during the third Reich.

It’s only a small step from there, to just picking out a kid whose life maybe doesn’t matter as much as others and harvesting his or her organs.

Just like they custom kill a cow to get a specific cut of meat.

It is typical of the left that even when they get caught doing or supporting the most horrific of things, they never, ever admit that they might have gone over the line.

I’m a realist. I don’t think you will ever stop abortions as long as you have irresponsible people having irresponsible sex.

Reasonable people can differ on when life begins.

But when you can harvest an intact heart and lungs, then what you are really doing is murdering a baby.

Anybody who can argue with that has never seen an ultrasound at 20 weeks.

We don’t have to pay for it with tax dollars, and we certainly don’t have to encourage late term partial birth abortions where the baby is custom killed by a doctor who is trying to harvest the baby’s organs intact.

When people getting federal funding to the tune of half a BILLION dollars a year admit what they are doing over white wine, salad and brie, we need to stop paying for it.

Only God can play God.

Watch: Ben Carson Drops Two-Sentence Planned Parenthood Truth Bomb That Stuns CNN Host

CNN’s Jake Tapper and Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson discussed the ongoing controversy surrounding Planned Parenthood’s apparent complicity in the harvest and sale of aborted body parts during a recent segment of The Lead.

A series of undercover videos revealed the disturbing practice, prompting Planned Parenthood Executive Vice President Dawn Laguens to respond. In a statement this week, she declared that those who released the footage engaged in a “grossly offensive act” against an organization that exists to “foster an environment in our country where providers of essential women’s health care and their patients are not subject to threats, harassment and intimidation.”

Tapper asked Carson for his reaction to Laguens’s reaction.

“The argument is,” the host began, “that none of the federal money pays for abortion. That is separate funding; and by defunding Planned Parenthood you would be eliminating all these other vital medical procedures, which you as a doctor know.”

Carson replied: “All of the services she mentioned are available through multiple other sources.”

He continued, alleging that the taxpayer-supported organization “makes money selling baby parts” and “doesn’t seem to understand the sanctity of human life and is willing to destroy that.”

Tapper used Carson’s point regarding disproportionately high numbers of Planned Parenthood facilities in minority communities to suggest that poor Americans might need the health services these clinics provide.

“I thought they were supposed to be able to get all of these things based on Obamacare,” Carson retorted. “Why do we need Planned Parenthood?”
