Planned Parenthood - Liberal Icon

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) vs Planned Parenthood

On the video (below), Dr. Deborah Nucatola, the senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood Federation of America, is seen talking matter-of-factly about the organization's participation in baby/fetal tissue-selling programs as she slugs down wine and chomps a salad. I would have thought that Planned Parenthood made enough from the federal government that they wouldn't need to stuff their pockets from cash derived from selling dead babies that they harvest (late second trimester and early third trimester children have more value).

Nucatola talks about doctors performing abortions in which ultrasound is used to ascertain the best location to grab the fetus with forceps. She explains, "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver because we know that, I'm not going to crush that part." 

On the video, Nucatola describes the best strategy to extract calavarium, or skulls, intact, but it is not clear if she is speaking in general terms or if she is describing Planned Parenthood's methods. And then, she says nothing about whether or not the fetus is still alive when it's delivered.
"And with the calvarium, in general, some people will actually try to change the presentation so that it's not vertex, because when it's vertex presentation, you never have enough dilation at the beginning of the case, unless you have real, huge amount of dilation to deliver an intact calvarium. So if you do it starting from the breech presentation, there's dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last, you can evacuate an intact calvarium at the end."

Make of this what you will.

To be fair to the other side, progressives contend that the babies who Planned Parenthood kills are not alive, and that the parts that they harvest are sold simply to medical laboratories for experimentation to reimburse their costs.


Present and Past

When we look back, photographs are time capsules, capturing an instant in time that will never come again. Facebook, the Internet, etc. are often (correctly) excoriated by many, but it does serve to capture moments in our history that future generations will view.

To me, the reason for blogging is to set the record straight that not everyone in our generation glorified in transgender behavior, sodomy and the corrosive 'progressive agenda'. So if you ever ask yourself, why I do it, that is why. To establish for the historical record that it was not all MTV, and sanctuary cities, inner city riots and a nation dictated by executive whim without a rule of law. Bill Clinton calls resistance to an immoral and generally lawless (unless they are laws that the executive favors) government a "vast right wing conspiracy". There is no conspiracy. There are some who simply disagree with what has become political correctness.
