This author has been ardently pro-life for about 40 years. Along the way, I have participated in some protests by marching with thousands and in others by praying alone in front of Planned Parenthood clinics, as well as helping establish Crisis Pregnancy Care centers in two communities.
During this time, I have also followed the antics and arguments of the “pro-choice” crowd closely and written much about the evil nature of the “pro-choice” philosophy. Earlier this year this vile doctrine of the Left plumbed the depths of evil to the very bottom when politicians in New York and Virginia promoted killing the baby up to, and even beyond, leaving the womb.
Or so I thought. I should have known better. I actually underestimated how grotesque “pro-choice” actions can, and have become.
One might wonder what could possibly be worse than executing infants even after they are born. The answer is found when the motives of the murderers are seen.
Two recent reports concerning murderous motives used to destroy innocent human life revealed a new depth of depravity in the name of the ‘right’ to be “pro-choice.”
Baby Body Parts Peddled for Politics and Profit
This story is not new, but it is also not well-publicized and non-existent on the Leftmedia. It involves the work of two undercover journalists from back in 2016.
David Daleidien and Sandra Merritt were undercover citizen journalists who videotaped conversations with Planned Parenthood officials who detailed the illegal selling of aborted baby body parts to the company StemExpress.
The videos were released and of course, Planned Parenthood denied that they were authentic. However, with the aid of a current Democratic candidate for president, they also managed to convince California to charge Daleidien and Merritt with 15 counts of the illegal taping of confidential conversations.
Presidential candidate Senator Kamala Harris [D. CA] was then-Attorney General in California and ordered the seizure of the video evidence from Daleidan’s home in 2016. That search and seizure were specifically against California law.
An excellent piece chronicling this case which has now come to court in preliminary hearings in San Francisco was penned by Madeline Osburn on Sept. 11, 2019, at thefederalist.com. Turns out the videos were both legal and authentic.
…former California attorney general Kamala Harris sought to prosecute Daleiden at the behest of her political donors at Planned Parenthood. Even though Daledien’s unreleased footage should have been protected by the California Shield Law, Harris ordered a search warrant against Daleiden in 2016 and a raid of his apartment, seizing his computer, camera equipment, and footage. Email records show correspondence between Harris’ office and Planned Parenthood officials, orchestrating public responses, filing police reports, and even drafting legislation targeting Daleiden. Harris has received tens of thousands of dollars in political contributions from Planned Parenthood-affiliated entities, so the nature of her behavior is no mystery.
The involvement of Kamala Harris would explain why more hasn’t been forthcoming in the Leftmedia concerning this. That and, of course, one other serious political consideration, the malevolent doctrine of “pro-choice” being a primary icon of the Left.
Otherwise, the Left might see this as a very important free speech case, as Ms. Osburn highlights. However, the video which is now being viewed in court has revealed the most disturbing details yet of Planned Parenthood’s baby body-parts trafficking.
Four days into the hearings, significant and graphic details about StemExpress’ business steadily emerge, such as their supplying of beating fetal hearts and intact fetal heads to medical researchers.
This means Planned Parenthood was selling the beating hearts and complete heads to StemExpress who would then sell hearts that were beating and fully intact heads to the, um, ‘researchers!’ All of this is illegal, by the way, and undercover evidence of illegal activity is legal to obtain not only in California but under most whistleblower laws nationwide.
The fact that the “pro-choice” enthusiasts believe so fervently in their cause that they would support such butchery for profit and political gains even though it is illegal is pure malevolence befitting the label of demonic. Yet as disturbing as this revelation is, the next story matches, if not exceeds it in reaching new depths of malignant depravity.
Abortions for Sexual “Pleasure”
If you are staring at the subtitle in disbelief, I shared similar astonishment when I first heard of this in another article from Sept. 11, 2019, at lifenews.com. Author Micaiah Bilger chronicles the beginnings of a disturbing new trend in a particular part of social media.
As unimaginably evil as it seems, apparently some couples find a sexual high in purposefully getting pregnant and aborting their unborn babies. Summit News recently uncovered couples discussing the disturbing sexual fetish on Reddit. The comments came from a post where one user explained that their female friend “has a really powerful fetish for breeding.”… “My girlfriend enjoys her pregnancies and she enjoys the abortion,” the person responded. “Her preferred date to abort is between 20 and 24 weeks of gestation. I enjoy making her pregnant. And I enjoy the time of her pregnancy. She has no menstrual period and she is sexually very active. …“In the last ten years in our relationship we have done seven abortions and my girlfriend is pregnant again with a little girl,” he continued. …A third person praised the abhorrent behavior, writing: “It is good (and rare) to hear of a couple (both man and woman) where both members are into abortion and pregnancy. This is a wonderful and potent example of personal power, where sex meets violence and creation combines with destruction,” the report continues.
The most surprising aspect of this behavior is not that it actually happened. Something akin to this was always the logical extension of the legal and societal approval of abortion on demand.
One thing that is more surprising and disturbing is this scenario makes abortion a “good” thing because couples can exercise their “personal power, where sex meets violence and creation combines with destruction.” It’s kinda like being a pair of sex-crazed serial killers without ever having to see your victims or worry about getting caught.
To put it another way, the couple gets a high playing God by sacrificing other lives over and over. Moreover, it’s all for the physical comfort and ‘pleasure’ of the self-made demigods which they can enjoy again each time a child is snuffed out!
What I also found astonishing was the nonchalance the Reddit commentators showed discussing killing the unborn child when they obviously know he or she is really a human child. The one whose girlfriend was now pregnant for the eighth time casually noted that the child now in her womb was a girl.
He makes this comment knowing that in a few weeks, they were going to pay someone to have this little girl killed once she served her purpose for their pleasure. Not only was he okay with that, but he seemed happy that they could just start the cycle all over again!
This is a different level of depravity on display than any I know. It manifests a deeper evil than even the abuse and murder of slaves or the Nazi medical experiments on living human beings.
This practice is a deeper evil for two simple and virtually unprecedented reasons. First of all, there is no force or coercion of any kind toward the mother.
In the vast majority of abortions, coercion plays a large part in the decision to abort. The mother is often pressured by the father, her own parents, other authority figures and peers to “fix” her “mistake,” so she can move on with her life.
However, in this scenario, the father and the mother agree to a long series of abortions, one after the other, for as long as they are together and physically able, for the sake of their own ‘pleasure’!
Secondly, the child in the womb is viewed here as a “sex toy” to be used and later discarded in favor of another human child to use as another “sex toy.”
Not only is the life of the child viewed on a lower level than the life of the parents, but the child herself is regarded as an inhuman non-living thing! Even when deceptive “pro-choice” advocates say that the fetus is a “lump of cells” they at least acknowledge that those are living human cells.
Recently an official from Planned Parenthood said this,
…we will continue to defend the truth: EVERY reason to have an abortion is a valid reason,” said Colleen McNicholas, chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region.
This means that Ms. McNicholas would have no problem with serial abortions as a sexual fetish. Taking what she has said in another light, she could add that according to this view, there is also no good reason to actually give birth to a child and every good reason to destroy that child!
Welcome to the depths of depraved “pro-choice” ideology where what was called light is now darkness and what was good is now called evil. Should this ideology continue unabated, it is a frightening omen for the future of society.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 [ESV]
