Abortion is an industry.
Fetal tissue harvesting is a lucrative business.
Pro-choice advocates have adamantly protested against laws that would promote patient safety and quality of care.
Planned Parenthood is being allowed to establish themselves as an accrediting body providing accreditation services to service providers that obtain business referrals from Planned Parenthood.
And they want NO external oversight involved!!!
Just to reiterate a few points, here are portions of an interview conducted with Carol Everett, a former director of four abortion clinics and owner of two, who has since become a pro-life advocate:
Q. What is the governing force behind the abortion industry?
A. Money. It is a very lucrative business. It is the largest unregulated industry in our nation. Most of the clinics are run in chains because it is so profitable.
Q. Abortion is supposed to be a “safe” experience. What complications did you witness?
A. In the last 18 months I was in the business, we were completing over 500 abortions monthly and killing or maiming one woman out of 500. Common complications that take place are perforations or tears in the uterus. Many of those result in hysterectomies. The doctor might cut or harm the urinary tract, which then requires surgical repair. A complication that is rarely publicized is the one in which the doctor perforates the uterus and pulls the bowels through the vagina, resulting in colostomy. Some of those can be reversed, some must live with the colostomy for the remainder of their lives
From the testimony of those who have worked within the industry, we know that the financial implications pertaining to the abortion industry do play a significant role in relationship to what goes on within the industry itself. We also know that the “rare, safe and legal” canard that Planned Parenthood and other pro-choice advocates use to describe abortion is little more than a cover-up to hide the financial emphasis within the industry as a whole.
As Conservatives, in fighting against abortion, we usually tend to look at funding derived from taxpayer sources and individual pieces of legislation such as the Sonogram law, ban on human embryo patents, fetal pain abortion laws and others. What I have hoped to present in providing information in this series is to show that pro-life advocates also have another option as well…the option of regulatory measures, including accreditation and credentialing.
If we do not challenge Planned Parenthood now where regulatory measures are concerned, then the most likely outcome is that they will establish a monopoly, both economically and as an acting governing body for legislative issues.
We have new allies on the horizon, found in pro-life champions representing minorities within our society. For example, we have pro-life allies such as Eduardo Verastegui (a Latino actor/producer whose video “Dura Realidad” is included below) and ad campaigns within the black community coming from organization such as the Radiance Foundation. Here’s one of their recent ads:
By recognizing our allies and joining forces with them in what ways we can, we increase our chances of succeeding in protecting the sanctity and dignity of human life…and that is what this battle is all about!
I deliberately saved the “Dura Realidad” video until last. And before readers come to it, I will remind them once again of the quote that was made on the Planned Parenthood website:
In later second-trimester procedures, you may also need a shot through your abdomen to make sure there is fetal demise before the procedure begins.
By using the word “demise” in their onsite instructions, Planned Parenthood indicated very plainly that they are completely and totally aware of the fact that they are contributing to the death or termination of existence of a human life! There is no other explanation or any excuse that can be offered to explain this away.
The Dura Realidad video provides a clear example of the culmination of Planned Parenthood’s activities. But please take FULL ADVANCE WARNING…this video begins with a brief introduction from Mr. Verastegui, but then includes very graphic images of aborted babies. The images themselves are very powerful, as is the conclusion of the video.
It is the reader’s choice to determine whether or not they want to watch the video, but it is my responsibility to tell them in advance that it is indeed graphic in the images that it provides!!
With that being said, I’ll offer my thanks to those who have read this series, and may we join forces for a stronger alliance in the days to come!
