The tenth undercover Planned Parenthood video was released today by The Center for Medical Progress. While a part of me was relieved that there were no baby arms and legs floating around in a pie dish in this video, or dead babies being pulled out of the freezer, the tenth video is just as disturbing and incriminating of Planned Parenthood's baby-part-selling business.
Here are three important things we learned:
1. Planned Parenthood does not discourage its affiliates from selling baby parts.
While Planned Parenthood preaches a message of caution to their affiliates to try to ensure they won't get caught selling baby parts, the organization in no way discourages it.
To Planned Parenthood, the rewards of selling baby parts outweigh the risks of people finding out.
2. Planned Parenthood has gone to great lengths to hide their baby-part-selling business from the American public and the government.
Planned Parenthood is not dumb. They know what they're doing. In fact, they are a well-oiled machine.
As abortion survivor Melissa Ohden puts it, "I have long believed that if my birthmother’s abortion would have taken place at a Planned Parenthood, I would not be here today. Completing over 300,000 abortions a year provides them with the experience to make sure that 'failures' like me don’t happen."
The same is true of the organization's collection and sale of baby parts.
That's why they don't like to talk about it over email.
And why the timing of conversations concerning baby part sales could spell disaster for Planned Parenthood.
3. These undercover videos are Planned Parenthood's PR nightmare come true.
Everything that's happened in the last couple of months has been a nightmare for Planned Parenthood. Why? These ten (so far) videos are everything the organization has tried to avoid over the years.
They wanted to avoid the headlines.
They wanted to avoid a congressional hearing like the one that took place last week and the one taking place on Thursday.
And they've wanted to protect their reputation.
If Planned Parenthood really "look[s] forward to the facts coming out" like they say, then why have they gone to such extreme lengths to hide the facts from the American public?
If what they are doing is so great and perfectly legal, then why are they worried about the New York Times finding out?
The strong front that Planned Parenthood has tried to put on since the release of the first video is just that—a front. The truth is coming out and it's the truth that has them shaking in their boots—or their Lamborghinis.
We cannot let these videos go to waste. There's a reason why Planned Parenthood does not want people to see them. Share the whole story with your friends and family and encourage them to watch the videos. There is a lot of misinformation out there about Planned Parenthood (Miss Tennessee, anyone?), and it's time to set the record straight.
Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization will provide the best opportunity in a generation to overturn Roe and Casey.
The reality is that our federal abortion laws are stuck in the past. So, it makes sense that Mississippi would want its state law to reflect our modern scientific knowledge.
While claiming to protect women’s health, this legislation fails to acknowledge the physical and mental toll abortion has on women—to say nothing of the unborn female lives being aborted.
