I haven’t written much (actually anything) about the Planned Parenthood debacle. Simply put, its an absolute tragedy. How any group of adults can joke or even be serious and discuss selling body parts of aborted fetuses is beyond me! Choice? Really?
Look, it’s disgusting to say the very least. It’s down-right contemptible that any group that is held to high medical standards and helping women in any capacity would stoop so low as to sell body parts for profit. At the very least, I equate what’s happening with Planned Parenthood at the end of the Obama administration to what happened to ACORN at the beginning. It’s wrong. It’s unethical, immoral, unprofessional, and it needs to be put out of its misery, and the doctors that are talking about this need to a) lose their medical licenses, and b) need to be jailed.
I’ve never been a fan of abortions. I’ve always thought of my mother. She went through hell raising three kids on her own, and she did it without a word of complaint. Her biggest fear was that she wasn’t going to have enough money to keep a roof over our heads and clothes on our back. So did she complain to the government? Nope. She went out and got her masters degree. Then she went out and got a PhD so she’d always have the education to fall back on. And she was never without a job, ending her career as a vice president at a medical university.
I think of what would have happened in today’s society. The easy way out would have been to just abandon or even abort us kids. How some women can do such a thing and never have a second thought is beyond me. I truly can’t believe there is any shred of maternal instinct alive there. Where is the mother/child bond? Where is the love? My wife certainly felt it with our kids. It’s a special bond that frankly, father’s can’t feel. We don’t give birth, and so we don’t have that special connection. Choice? What choice? To choose whether or not you want to kill your baby? That’s just plain sick.
Look, I can certainly argue the political side of this debate. I can certainly argue the monetary side, or the religious side. But let’s just look at the ethical side. You don’t kill people. Thou shalt not kill, remember? And if ultrasounds have taught us anything other than the sex of our unborn child, it’s taught us that there IS a person in the womb, and it IS possible to feel pain at an early stage of development. Conception, it turns out IS the beginning of life. Ethically and morally, I can’t see how anyone would make that decision.
Planned Parenthood not only needs to be defunded by the US government entirely, it needs to be shut down nationally. Oh, there are other clinics and such that will fill any void. And there are other groups that will spring up and take the place in the poorer neighborhoods. But no more federal funding for any group that performs abortion. Period. It’s heinous, and it’s not a way a civilized country behaves. End of story! And it’s not open for debate!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
