You don’t have to be religious to be disgusted by the Planned Parenthood videos, nor about the media blackout from liberals about all of the most appalling details. Fortunately, an injunction was just lifted allowing even more damning material to come to light.
A broad chorus has come out against Planned Parenthood, with the hastag #ProtestPP currently trending on Twitter, primarily made up of Republicans — to no one’s surprise. But there are Democrats questioning things as well. For example, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has called the videos “troubling.” So that’s something.
Incredibly, Planned Parenthood does not appear to be in any immediate danger of being defunded. Financially speaking, the organisation is stable. Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million in federal funding, enjoyed excess revenues over expenses of $90 million in 2014, and has more than $1 billion in assets.
Of course, David Daleiden’s videos have produced hiccups. Corporate donors have demanded their names be removed from the Planned Parenthood website. Who knew that having your customers imagine an exhausted abortion doctor enjoying an ice cold Coca-Cola at the end of a busy day extinguishing lives might not be an effective marketing strategy?
Abortion is the business model of Planned Parenthood, and business is booming. Looking at the period of 2000 to 2013, government funding increased from just over $200 million to the aforementioned $500 million, while abortions rose 66 per cent and adoption referrals dropped 25 per cent.
More importantly, Planned Parenthood is gaining market share at a strong clip. In 1986, it accounted for about 6 per cent of the abortions in the United States. That has grown to more than 30 per cent as of 2011. This type of growth makes Planned Parenthood the Apple Corp of the Valley of Death.
Planned Parenthood can attribute a good portion of their boffo baby-killing business to their president since 2006, Cecile Richards. Richards is well on her way to personally matching Hitler’s body count. Breitbart has done the grim maths so you don’t have to.
Using a conservative estimate of 300,000 abortions a year — or 300 kiloscrapes, using the technical metric measure — Cecile Richards has presided over three million abortions, or three megascrapes in her ten years as president of the organisation. This has earned her “half Holocaust” status. Full Holocaust seems eminently reachable given Planned Parenthood’s growing hegemony in the abortion industry.
To be clear, this is just since Richards took charge. Planned Parenthood has since 1970 performed 7 million abortions, comfortably surpassing Hitler according to its own annual reports. You have to admire the chutzpah, if you’ll forgive my terminology: Planned Parenthood has amassed a Third Reich-style death count completely legally and while pocketing half a billion dollars a year to do so.
But under Richards the numbers have skyrocketed such that in just the last ten years, at least 3 million young lives were ended. If Cecile stays in her post another decade, she will reach “full Hitler,” by matching the six million deaths of the Holocaust. In fact it’ll probably be sooner than that, given the acceleration during her reign.
The road ahead may be rocky. Besides the undercover videos still being released, some media sources are starting to cover the revolting practices of these sociopathic monsters. Nice normal people, whatever their views on abortion, have no stomach for these unashamed charnel-house activities.
The liberal media, of course, can’t see the problem. One Slate writer considers abortion an altruistic act. And the Internet is full of misguided leftists like abortion counsellor Emily Letts, who posted a gruesome abortion diary in which she smiles and holds hands with nurses during the procedure. She wrote: “I don’t feel sad. I feel in awe of the fact that I can make a baby. I can make a life.”
She forgot to mention the last step: I can casually end that life, too.
Letts’s reaction may seem bewildering, but it is right in line with the beliefs of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, who once said: “The most merciful thing that the large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”
And then, of course, there are the notoriously racially-charged objectives of Planned Parenthood. Presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson recently pointed out that Planned Parenthood has a goal of controlling the black population.
There are many comparisons to be made here. Some of the revelations coming out about Planned Parenthood remind us of the ghoulish experiments of Dr. Mengele and the odious Unit 731 in Japan, both of which performed terrible tests on living subjects in the name of furthering medical science.
But for now we can say this: in a lineup of history’s biggest killers, Cecile Richards is currently in the middle of the list behind Japan’s Togo. If she can just keep up the fine job she is doing, she will quickly enter much more exclusive company in infamy.
