On Planned Parenthood and the Sale of Baby Parts

A pic of PP Medical Director Debora Nucatola

I have no idea what to say about this story.  By all verifiable sources, it is true that Planned Parenthood is taking body parts of aborted babies and selling them to increase their profits.

I don't even...

I can't even...

On the one hand, it's wicked enough to kill the unborn.  As an adoptive dad, I've put my money where my mouth is twice.  And I commend that route to birth moms and parents who can adopt.

On the other hand, to turn a profit twice over by this murderous act is heinous beyond imagination.  What kind of wickedness is this?  As one said, "It's not only that they were deprived of their lives, but also that their corpses were desecrated for profit."

Some thoughts...

1.  If there is any justice left in the U.S. justice system, people like this will go to jail.

2.  The justice of God, though potentially unseen now, will indeed prevail.  They are set in slippery places; they will fall to ruin - destroyed in a moment, swept away utterly by terrors (Ps. 73.18-19).

3.   If the church is to have any moral voice in the world, we darn sure better speak up here and now and to this issue.  Furthermore, we better darn sure step up our game for orphan care and advocacy.  If we can't get angry about this (without sinning, as instructed), then we should become monks and wait on the Second Coming.

4.  If the word "evil" isn't in your vocabulary, it should be.  We shouldn't surrender that in the name of political correctness or cultural relevance.  In days of old, the people living around the Israelites would sacrifice their children by fire to the god Molech by rolling them down into a ramp into a pit.  God spoke about it multiple times in the OT.  And this is worse.

May God have mercy on us all.
