Blog Post: Killing a Lion vs. Killing a Baby
Was the repeated reporting about the killing of Cecil the Lion used as a distraction to draw attention away from the Planned Parenthood videos? The July 1st killing of Cecil By Minnesota dentist Dr. Walter James Palmer received more news coverage from the mainstream media than did the killing and dismembering of human babies by Planned Parenthood. About the time Dr. Palmer finally resurfaced after receiving threats from those outraged by the killing of Cecil, a gynecological oncologist who directs the Center for Bloodless Medicine and Surgery at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh, Dr. Jan Casimir Seski, was accused by Zimbabwe of illegally killing a lion in April. This story did not receive as much media coverage, possibly because this was simply a lion without a name, like the babies killed by Planned Parenthood.
The seventh undercover video from the Center for Medical Progress was released today. Here are some excerpts:
“’Okay, I want to show you something.’ So she has one of her instruments and she just taps the heart and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here, and I’m looking at this fetus, and its heart is beating and I don’t know what to think…
It had a face. It wasn’t completely torn up. And its nose was very pronounced. It had eyelids and its mouth was pronounced. And then, since the fetus was so intact, [Jessica] said, “Okay, this is a really good fetus and it looks like we can procure a lot from it. We’re going to procure a brain.”
Holly O’Donnell then describes how Jessica began the harvesting process by cutting through the lower jaw and into the face with scissors, then instructed O’Donnell to finish cutting through the face so she could extract the brain.
Later, heartbroken and crying, O’Donnell returned to the biohazard container to hold the baby boy one last time.
‘It just really hard knowing that you’re the only person who’s ever going to hold that baby,’ she said.
She often thought of what each child could have been, if given the chance. One could have been lawyer, or a firefighter or one day perhaps, even the President. Would a little girl at age three have liked to color? Would she look like her mom or her dad?
‘Things like that, I think that it’s a wasted life, and it’s sad that so many people view it as a mistake.'”
Philadelphia abortionist Kermit Gosnell is serving prison time for delivering babies alive and then killing them, yet Planned Parenthood is free to operate with the aid of our tax dollars! This is an outrage.
Can a nation become so callous that these videos don’t prick the heart of the viewer? Can the citizens of a nation sit by and not demand their elected officials take steps to stop the killing and selling of human baby body parts? American citizens were rightly outraged over the killing of Cecil the lion, will they become as outraged over the killing of an innocent unborn child?
