I pray that the video series by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) will shock America and awaken our nation to the shame that is Planned Parenthood.
The tapes are dramatic, raw and honest. Some members of the traditional media and liberal politicians say the folks who did the videos are sneaky. The President’s official spokesman even said the White House wants to investigate how the videos were made, suggesting they were “heavily edited” to produce the desired result. (NOTE: CMP released the entire unedited tapes, just in case someone wants to judge the appropriateness of their editing.)
White House objections ring hollow, coming from an administration headed by a president who vows his support for abortion because a woman who gets pregnant shouldn’t “be punished with a baby.” In a sane, just world our leaders would be appalled that someone is selling parts of dismembered babies – and they would be praising the people who revealed the scandal.
In fact, the proponents of Planned Parenthood are afraid that the truth is finally on graphic display; it is an ugly truth. It is a truth of crushed baby skulls and tiny dismembered bodies auctioned to the highest bidder.
Bless the video producers for this courageous work. And if they were a bit sneaky, they were simply following a long tradition by people trying to change society for the better. The “sting” is nothing new.
Police capture drug dealers and pimps by pretending to be customers for their illicit goods and services. For these efforts, we give our law enforcement officials awards.
Reporters expose corrupt politicians by posing as people willing to offer a bribe for a favor. For these efforts, journalists win Pulitzer Prizes.
CMP is doing the work journalists at the major newspapers and television networks ought to be doing. Instead, “real” journalists are simply reading the latest liberal talking points. Instead of questioning CMP’s techniques, they should be apologizing for not getting the story first. They have failed to report this generation’s holocaust.
Millions of innocent souls were tortured and murdered in the Nazi concentration camps of World War II. At the end of the war, many Germans – some living in the shadows of the camps – said they had no idea what was going on inside. As a result, in some cases liberating Allied forces marched the locals through the camps and showed them. As you might expect, it was a shocking experience; they could not deny what they had not know or perhaps denied before.
Now is our turn. We have seen inside the camps of Planned Parenthood. Will we continue to deny?
