Planned Parenthood: Rape Enabler & Beauty Product Supplier

I wrote a few days ago about a former Texas Planned Parenthood director who had a “pro-life conversion.” As I was researching that story, I came across a YouTube video that I included at the conclusion of that post.

The video is an astounding expose` of Planned Parenthood personnel avoiding their duty to report obvious child abuse in the form of statutory rape. A pro-life group, Life Dynamics, Inc., had a woman with a very young-sounding voice call various Planned Parenthood clinics in several states. She would tell the clinic employee who answered the phone that she was 13-years-old and was pregnant by her 22-year-old boyfriend, who she wanted to be able to attend the abortion with her and pay for it. This is obviously statutory rape, and the “medical providers” at abortion clinics are mandatory reporters of such child abuse. These calls were recorded, and those recordings are contained in the aforementioned YouTube video.

Any description of the recordings does not do them justice. You really need to watch the video for yourselves.

Most of the calls can be summarized like this. Girl tells about her much older boyfriend. Clinic employee says “Stop, don’t tell me your name. That’s statutory rape. So, when you come in to get your abortion, don’t talk about your boyfriend so we won’t have to report what happened to the authorities.”

This happened in approximately 90% of the calls made, including calls to Iowa abortion clinics.

Then, a few days ago, I got an email linking to a story that is just as appalling.

Apparently, a San Francisco-based cosmetics company is using skin-cell proteins from aborted fetuses in its anti-aging cream.

They are not bothering to hide that fact. They are using it as a marketing tool.

This got me to thinking about an email I received a long time ago (and cannot now find) alleging to be a price list of aborted baby body parts sold and used for medical research.

I started researching that topic and found that Life Dynamics has been involved in uncovering the truth on this issue as well.

The sale of human body parts, including those of aborted babies, is illegal, but it seems that abortion providers and medical researchers have found a loophole.

It is legal to “donate” human tissue for medical research. So, according to Life Dynamics:

1) A baby parts “wholesaler” enters into a financial agreement with an abortion clinic in which the wholesaler pays a monthly “site fee” to the clinic. For this payment, the wholesaler is allowed to place a retrieval agent inside the clinic where he or she is given access to the corpses of children killed there and a workspace to harvest their parts. In most cases, this retrieval agent is an employee of the wholesaler. In other instances, the retrieval agent is a clinic employee who was trained by the wholesaler.

2) The buyer – usually a researcher working for a medical school, pharmaceutical company, bio-tech company or government agency – supplies the wholesaler with a list of the baby parts wanted.

3) When such orders are received by the wholesaler, they are faxed to the retrieval agent at the clinic who harvests the requested parts and ships them to the buyer via FedEx, Airborne or a similar common carrier.

4) These parts are “donated” by the clinic to the wholesaler who turns around and “donates” them to the buyer. The buyer then “reimburses” the wholesaler for the cost of retrieving the parts.

On the surface, this system does not appear to violate the legal prohibitions against trafficking in human body parts since, technically speaking, no one is buying or selling anything. The loophole is that site fees and retrieval reimbursement amounts are unregulated. The law requires that such payments be reasonable and reflect the actual cost of securing the parts, but there are no state or federal laws which establish guidelines or sets limits regarding these payments. Additionally, no governmental or law enforcement agency is charged with overseeing the system.

This means that the wholesaler is free to set site fees and retrieval fees at any amount.

Baby parts being bought and sold… baby tissue being used for “beauty cream”… is this really what our society has come to?

We should be thankful that groups like Life Dynamics are fighting to tell the truth about the abortion industry in this country, and we need to tell everyone we know the truth about the “business” of abortion.

The abortion industry is NOT about women’s rights. It’s about making a quick buck at the expense of human life and dignity.
