Who needs consent? The Stem Express Planned Parenthood Baby Parts Scandal Continues

While the nation, especially Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood, waited all day Tuesday for the Center for Medical Progress to release the next video of their underground investigation on Planned Parenthood's illegal trade in fetal body parts, many of us were hoping that CMP would wait just another day to keep the pro-abortion media on the edge.

Well, CMP did wait until today, Wednesday August 12, to release its next video which consisted of an interview with a young woman who worked for Stem Express, explaining what happens when the Stem Express employees go to retrieve "specimens" (read body parts) from the aborted babies.

The ensuing conversation reveals violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) at many levels, including the failure to obtain proper consent from the women having the abortions.

Ms O'Donnell explains that Stem Express and Planned Parenthood conspired to obtain bodies without the patient's consent.

Watch the video. 

Then call your local news station and ask them if they intend to tell the story.

Ask them if they have been bought off by Planned Parenthood's million dollar PR firm.

Ask them if they have even watched the videos.

Then pass this on to your friends, neighbors, acquaintances, and people you know. 

This nation needs to be outraged.

Otherwise we owe an apology to the German people.

Planned Parenthood - Public Enemy #1

Five videos released by the Center for Medical Progress showing planned Parenthood executives discussing the sale of fetal body parts have unleashed a firestorm that shows no sign of abating. Indeed Tuesday another video is expected to make its way into the public consciousness challenging conventional wisdom and calling for the de-funding of Planned Parenthood by the federal government.

But no one should be fooled into thinking that Planned Parenthood is going to walk away from 500 million dollars without a fight. It has already hired a major public relations firm to deal with the fallout. Its success can be seen in the silence of the big 3 television news networks.  ABC, CBS and NBC all have quarantined the story. The standard line is that the videos are heavily edited (not true, one can watch the unedited versions on the CMP website.  The next line is that PP only does 3% of its business on abortions.  A nifty video put out by Students for Life of America puts that argument to rest in short order.  Planned Parenthood leaders claim PP is only getting "reimbursed for costs. Another SFLA video destroys that argument.    Finally the leadership at PP has been claiming that the people behind the videos are evil extremists.   That is so absurd. The fellow behind the videos is 26 years old and was not even born in those days of rage.  So much for the pot calling the kettle black.

So here are my thoughts as we look at week 6.

Expect the debate to get uglier.

Expect more in the media to finally have their "come to Jesus" moment.

Expect the Washington insiders to try to muzzle it again.  They are very frustrated. and this includes some who are suppose to be on our side. In fact unless GOP leadership gets an earful during this recess, they will do nothing when they return. Many are truly afraid of PP. It is critical that your elected representatives know you will hold them accountable if they do not do EVERYTHING in their power to de-fund PP.

Expect the media to continue its blackout of the story. Note the media likes diversions. Two weeks ago it was Cecil the lion.  Last week it was Trump. Look for them to find something this week to distract the public.

So what do we do.

It was the social media, including Facebook and Twitter that has delivered a staggering blow to PP. It still has not figured out the truly guttural anger and outrage of the American people toward PP and its actions.

1. Keep talking and writing about it.

2. Participate and join in any public protest against PP.   The next nationwide event is AUGUST 22 in front of a local PP abortion mill in your home town.

3.Call your elected representatives and voice your outrage that PP is getting funded at all (especially when the government is broke).

4. Contact your local right to life organization and make sure you are getting the latest in information. Sign any legitimate petitions to stop the funding of PP by state or federal governments.


6. Speak to your priest, pastor, minister, rabbi or preacher and ask him to mention the current scandal. Inform him of what is happening in your state. ask him to have the congregation pray for an end to abortion.

7. Participate in the social media and comment on the various websites and blogs.  always act and write charitably. We are seeking  the conversion of the lost.

8. Know what is happening. do not speculate. READ up on the latest. Know the talking points. Again SFLA has some great links  to bring you up to date.

Here are a few.

1. The videos speak for themselves. The PP executive is talking about body parts. That is proof of the child's humanity.

2. The ends never justify the means. "killing" a baby to help research so we can save lives. . Do you not see the craziness of such a position.  Kill a healthy child to help save another - are we nuts!

3. The PP executives are haggling over price. 

3. The Stem Express paperwork and promotional material clearly promote a profit motive for the "clinic."

4. The lawsuits do not prevent CMP from publishing the videos that do not involve Stem Express or NAF.

5. The videos show in all their starkness that abortion kills a human being.

There are points more but these are the clearest.

Finally what Planned Parenthood and its minions have relied upon is the short attention span of the public. It is crucial that the story remain in the public eye.  Only our efforts will make that happen. And every day that the story continues to be discussed provides another opportunity for lives to be saved.

Racist Planned Parenthood ONCE AGAIN Caught Selling Baby Body Parts

The latest scandal to make its way to the news involves something that we in the pro-life movement have known for years. Abortion mills were selling the body parts of babies killed by late term abortions. In the early 1990s when activists discovered the intact D and X techniques pioneered by late term practitioners, questions were asked as to why and what as done with the bodies. Soon we learned that the bodies were being harvested. Mark Crutcher and Life Dynamics did a thorough investigation but the congress failed to act.  The money that Planned Parenthood had to stop any investigation of its illegal practices was more powerful than the truth at that time.  Frustrated by the failure of those who should have in the lead demanding the end to all federal funding of this racist organization, pro-lifers worked on other strategies to stop the killing of the unborn.

Until now.

Yesterday a shocking new undercover expose reveals once again Planned Parenthood to be the mercenary racist organization we in the pro-life movement have known for years.   The Washington post reports that a high ranking Planned Parenthood official - the director of medical research - cavalierly discussing the "sale" of baby body parts following abortions.   While casually sipping her wine and eating her lunch,  Dr. Deborah Nucatola explains what body parts are in greatest demand.

“I’d say a lot of people want liver,” she says in the video posted on the Center for Medical Progress’s Web site, between bites of salad. “And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”
Outrage has come from many sources including various presidential candidates. The governors of  Louisiana and Texas have called for investigations at the state levels.  Congressional leaders are also calling for hearings and investigations.

But unless the people of this nation exhibit a true disgust for this illegal and morally bankrupt behavior, nothing is going to change. Planned Parenthood has its closest friend in President Obama. This is a man who was willing to shut down the federal government rather than allow Planned Parenthood to lose its half a billion dollars in federal taxpayer funding.

Contact your congressional representative. Demand action. The federal government is running a deficit. We do not have the money to give to a racist bigoted organization. If the confederate battle flag is an affront to people and should be out of sight, how much more an organization that makes money by killing children and then selling the body parts of those dead babies?

Stop funding Planned Parenthood now. Demand that Planned Parenthood comply with the GAO audit requests from years ago.

It Takes Courage to Believe - Reflections on the new movie "Little Boy"

Imagine you are a little boy whose dad has gone off to war and you want him home in the worst way.
And you will do anything to bring him back.

Such is the premise of the new movie "Little Boy."

Actually there is a lot more to the movie - a whole lot more - but I would prefer to let it unfold before your eyes while you sit in the theater and take yourself back to a little California coastal town during World War II.

There you will meet Pepper Busby and his brother London and his dad and mom. You will meet Fr. Oliver and his associate Fr. Crispin. You will meet Dr. Fox and his bully of a son along with all of the other boys and girls in O'Hare, California.

And you will meet Hashimoto,

This is a story about relationships - relationships strained, broken, and damaged. Relationships strengthened, tested and proved. Relationships born from a willingness to look beyond what is seen to believe what cannot be seen.

In other words - faith.

Sidebar: the secular critics did not like the movie.  Ignore them. Go see the movie.  Invite a friend. True, everyone is talking about going to see the new Avengers movie. But it will be around for awhile and there will be long lines.  Go see Little Boy.  Do something good for your soul.  Feed yourself with a story that will ask you to think - am I doing all I could do - to make this world a better place?

Then after you have seen the movie, tell me what relationship affected you the most.

Final point - the acting is wonderful. The characters are well developed and the Jacob Salvati is excellent in the title role. Emily Watson and Tom Wilkinson are masters of their craft and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is compelling as the hated "enemy" who moves into town. David Henrie shows us a dramatic side and Kevin James offers us a smile in his role as Dr. Fox.

 Little Boy is currently in theaters nationwide.
