Why is Selling Fetal Tissue Such a Crime?

Abortion and racism are evil twins, born of the same lie. Where racism now hides its face in public, abortion is accomplishing the goals of which racism only once dreamed.” – Alveda King

After the videos were released in which Planned Parenthood employees are secretly caught discussing the sale of fetal tissue and organs, endless commentators strongly condemned this horrific practice. You can’t turn on the news without seeing some man or woman discussing the vile act of selling fetal organs. But why now?

Bill O’Reilly asked “Are we becoming a barbaric nation?” Kirsten Powers said that this issue isn’t pro-choice versus pro-life. Everyone is condemning the sale of tissue and organs as if it’s so much worse than the act of slaughtering the child from which the tissue and organs are harvested.

It’s like a father saying “Sure, it’s totally cool if you want to murder my teenage daughter,” then breaking down in tears when the killers try to sell her organs. Are we entirely blind to the initial crime? Does no one care that these children are being crushed in the first place? It’s only now that their tissue is being sold that it’s a big deal? Seems odd.

Are we becoming a barbaric nation? We became one decades ago when Roe v Wade passed. We are a nation in which it is legal for a woman to pay to have her own child executed. But it’s just terrible that after these totally legal executions, the doctors are using the bodies and tissue for scientific research! I’d clutch my pearls, but selling fetal organs doesn’t seem like a big deal in the face of the fact that killing your unborn child is perfectly legal.

See the problem here? We are outraged by a secondary crime, when the primary crime is not only so much worse, but completely ignored. It’s hypocritical and ludicrous.

Call me when your outrage is justified.
