But I couldn’t get the comparison out of my mind once I began reading the stories and the transcript of the now famous and recorded conversation in which Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior medical director for Planned Parenthood, explained how some of her clinics harvest the organs of live, unborn babies…err, excuse me…fetuses. Individuals in utero who are crushed to death and whose kidneys, livers, hearts, lungs, legs, calvarium and brains are harvested. Fetuses that are going to die anyway and whose non-person cells just happen to be available for medical research. (The full, unedited video is here.)
In the conversation, covertly recorded by the Center for Medical Progress, a California-based pro-life group, Nucatola explains in gruesome detail how to harvest the organs without damaging them during the abortion procedure, which involves certain amount of crushing the life out of the fetus.
But, Nucatola explains, look at all the good we do. Women who are told they can give their children’s organs for medical research are made to feel better about their abortions. Look at all the cures that we’re helping scientists discover. We’re not in it for profit.
It’s chillingly the same reasoning that Josef Mengele, a physician and SS officer, used to justify his
put into pressure chambers, tested with drugs, castrated, frozen to death. Children were exposed to experimental surgeries performed with anesthesia, transfusions of blood from one to another, isolation endurance, reaction to various injections with lethal germs, sex change operations, removal of organs and limbs….[Emphasis added.]
The first objection that I’ll hear is that Planned Parenthood doesn’t do this on living victims. That, of course, assumes that something other than human beings are the victims of the abortion and harvesting procedure. In fact, according to pro-choice dogma, one does not even dare call the “mass of cells” losing their organs “victims.” Because they’re not human beings.
According to Nazi dogma, the victims weren’t human either, or at least not worthy enough to have a claim to life. They are Jews, Gypsies and others who don’t have an inherent–as all humans do–right to life. Just as the pro-abortion folks like those at Planned Parenthood justify abortion.
Some other similarities:
- Mengele’s procedures were done without anesthesia; so are the abortions.
- Mengele’s procedures were done without the consent of the victim; so are the abortions.
- Mangele’s procedures were done without regard for the health or safety of his victims; so are the abortions.
The harvesting and commercial sale of fetal organs is illegal, grotesque and immoral. But the callous and anti-science defenders of unrestricted abortion, such as Planned Parenthood, can only justify their response by insisting, in opposition to the medical evidence, that the fetus is not a person and just a part of the mother, to be disposed of at will.
Nucatola’s insensitive detachment and the speed that pro-choices came to her defense, and the slap on the wrist the Planned Parenthood is giving her is further revelation of the depths to which our culture has descended.
As Joseph Welch famously said to Joe McCarthy, the soulless commie hunter: “Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”
- Planned Parenthood apologizes for Deborah Nucatola’s “tone.” But not much else.
- John Kass’ excellent Chicago Tribune column.
- ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN Sunday Shows Ignore Planned Parenthood Scandal. No surprise there.
- Mengele an Abortionist, Argentine Files Suggest, the New York Times reports.
- Did Planned Parenthood violate the law by altering abortion technique to harvest organs?
