Many across the United States were shocked and revolted when investigative journalists with the Center for Medical Progress began releasing a series of videos made about the organization Planned Parenthood.
The first video features Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, casually explaining over wine and lunch how to “crush above” or “crush below” parts of an unborn baby’s body in order to harvest intact organs to sell. In the second video, Dr. Mary Gatter, who oversees a Planned Parenthood clinic in Pasadena, California, haggles with the undercover journalists over the cost per specimen. She says that, in order to obtain intact organs, the doctors will have to use a “less crunchy” method of aborting the babies.
These videos make one thing very clear—abortion murders a baby.
An unborn baby is a living person with organs and tissue that are valuable to those who purchase them precisely because they belonged to human beings. These are real people who are being slaughtered in the womb, not merely unwanted clumps of tissue.
But when a society rejects the Creator, who specially made us in His image, everyone does “what is right in his own eyes” (Judges 21:25). Eventually that society will simply dispose of any life it deems inconvenient, whether of babies, the elderly, or other “undesirables.”
