The other night I rolled over in bed to turn on my 3 year old son’s video monitor, just to check him before I fell asleep. I didn’t see him when I turned it on…but then I looked more closely as my eyes adjusted……and I saw his arm. He must have been far over on one side of his bed so only his little arm was showing. As I stared at his arm….I had tears come to my eyes….because earlier that day, I saw an arm in the same shape and position as my sons, being pushed around a petri dish in Planned Parenthood’s 3rd video that had been released.
While the majority of American’s mourned the death of Cecil the lion, which of course upset me too, the selling for profit of aborted baby parts has gone widely unnoticed.
I ask myself why……why is there not MORE outrage in the fact that an organization -that our tax dollars funds- is ILLEGALLY selling aborted baby parts? Why is it that a LION, takes presidency in news coverage and outrage OVER babies?
Is it because being outraged about a LION doesn’t have to make you pick a side on the political aisle?
I have had Pro-life liberals tell me that they vote Democrat (which can now also be called “socialist” because the head of the Democratic Party, doesn’t know how to decipher between the two-but that is a whole other blog) because abortion is a social issue….and they don’t let social issues determine their vote. Well……let me just tell you….46 Democratic Senators voted yesterday to continue to fund Planned Parenthood -which means continuing to give federal funds to an organization that illegally sells aborted baby parts. If you voted for one of these Senators that means….this IS okay with you. Because those Senators ARE YOUR voice, and if you are voting for them, then you are suring up the fact this barbaric behavior continues.
In September, Obama (who by the way supported killing a baby if it survives a botched abortion while he served in the Senate) and Congress will find themselves in a debate over the funding for the “Health and Family-Planning Organization,” which gives over 500 million dollars to Planned Parenthood a year. The possibility of a government shutdown on October 1 is looking like it could be a possibility if the House and Senate do not pass a bill that keeps the government funded. But Republicans are saying that they WILL NOT support a bill that continues to fund Planned Parenthood…..if they don’t support a bill, then the government will shut down.
I say…….. SHUT IT DOWN!
Yep…..because all of this “proposing” of bills to stop the funding of Planned Parenthood is often just show boating. If the Republicans REALLY want to take a stand, then I say exercise the CONSTITUTIONAL authority that has been given to them and utilize the Power of the Purse!
Now if you are going to argue that shutting down the government is going to cause mass pandemonium….I would just like to remind you the majority of the government shuts down over every single weekend and on holidays….and, you guessed it-we survive. Sometimes you have to take that leap for the greater good and I think stopping the illegal sales of aborted baby parts for profit….is WORTH that leap!
Also….women would be just fine without Planned Parenthood, because we have Obama Care now….and Obama Care covers everyone that can’t afford healthcare…..soooooooo
I say…..SHUT IT DOWN!
