It reminds me of what my great grandfather used to say: “I’m not stubborn; I’m just set and determined.”
Planned Parenthood isn’t selling body parts. That would be illegal and immoral. And since Planned Parenthood is the bastion of morality, such an accusation surely taints their glowing image.
Everything they do is within the bounds of the law. They would never sell human body parts for profit. If the woman gives her consent, the baby’s tissue and organs can be donated to science, and any reimbursement to cover the cost of organ/tissue harvesting is greatly appreciated. But one thing is perfectly clear. They’re not selling body parts for profit.
In a previous statement, Planned Parenthood admitted that there is a financial exchange to cover their costs:
“There is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for Planned Parenthood. In some instances, actual costs, such as the cost to transport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”
There’s really no need to split hairs here. Planned Parenthood, as well as every other clinic that provides abortions, are committing murder every time they perform an abortion. That should be enough to outrage us. The fact that they might be selling – er, excuse me, donating and receiving cost reimbursements for – fetal tissue and organs just makes them that much worse. What they’re doing might actually be “within the bounds of the law.” But that’s not actually saying much, since the act of butchering an unborn or partially born baby for the sake of convenience is well “within the bounds of the law.”
