The Point: Planned Parenthood Admits Evil

Their own words condemn them. For the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, I’m John Stonestreet with The Point.

The latest video released from the Center for Medical Progress is its most shocking yet, full of admissions from abortion providers filmed at National Abortion Federation conventions.

In the video, one abortion provider admits she might “pull off a leg or two” to avoid a partial birth abortion, while another admits to performing the illegal method. And another jokes about an eyeball falling in her lap.

Dr. Lisa Harris, the medical director of Planned Parenthood in Michigan, says “…we actually see the fetus the same way… it’s a person, it’s killing.”

And Dr. Paul Blumenthal, from Planned Parenthood Maryland admits, “I know Planned Parenthood sells a lot of stuff to people.” And by “stuff” he means fetal organs.

YouTube has censored the video and a California judge is considering contempt charges. But Christian, don’t turn away. We can’t be silent. Allowing evil to hide only enables evil to flourish. Come to BreakPoint.org to watch the video, and share with others.

[Editor’s Note: Since John Stonestreet recorded this edition of The Point, the video in question has been pulled from the Internet. We apologize that we’re no longer able to make it available. If it’s put back up, we will provide the link. Update: We’ve now put in the link to the copy at LifeSiteNews. Thanks to the commenters who pointed us to it.]

    In John’s commentary he promised that we could watch the video here on BreakPoint.org but I don’t see it here. I hope BreakPoint will help the cause of Truth and engage in a bit of civil disobedience and post the video. Our LORD is the God of Truth–will we bow to Him — or kowtow to the courts of our fallen man?

    So what does this video add? For Christians it doesn’t change the view on abortion or Planned Parenthood and I doubt anyone being pro-choice will be swayed the other way due to this video either, also because the previous videos have been proven to be severely edited. And since a Judge already ruled against this particular video and it’s release (which didn’t persuade the Center for Medical Progress to adhere to the law and obey the Judge) means it’s inadmissable in any investigation, including the investigations by Congress or possible criminal investigations.
    So, at best, this video will be another nail in David Daleiden’s legal coffin, taking him a step closer to doing actual jailtime. And even that is hardly news. So it’s a lot of noise about nothing.

      Even pro-choice people are finding these videos abhorrent. They are adding a lot, actually.
      They are showing Planned Parenthood for what it is. The truth really does hurt. More and more people are agreeing with limits being set on abortion, even if they are pro-choice.
      How can you possibly say that people talking about ripping off arms and crushing skulls is “noise about nothing” ?

        I can say it because it is daintiness, and while daintiness is all right in it’s place it cannot be a substitute for morality. The words “killing babies” are abominable enough in the abstract without details. There are only so many ways to dress up a corpse. The
        fact is that the reason people accept abortion at all is because they are men without chests driven by feelings. The fact that pro-lifers use petty propagandistic manipulations is all very well in one sense(as one can make a club out of any kind of wood), but is in another sense making a consensus to corruption.

        If you would here a surgeon, or a cardiologist, or a pulmonologist talk about the procedures they do you would most likely lose your lunch as well. Because, in the end, pretty much all medical procedures are pretty gruesome and can make you feel sick. I’m a doctor and I passed out more than once in the OR due to the nature of the operation. I have inserted chest tubes into patients while they were fully awake while I knew there was no way I could anesthetize the chest wall sufficiently. And let me tell you, you don’t want to see 3 nurses holding your loved one in place while a chest tube is inserted with a certain amount of violence into the chest cavity or hear the screams coming with that procedure. Still, it needs to be done or the patient will suffer even more. It’s not as clean and friendly as seen in shows like Grey’s Anatomy or ER.
        Bottom line, medical procedures are not fun to watch or to hear about, not even for medical professionals. Let alone for people with no medical background who only get to see a heavily edited video made with the sole purpose of making a point. There is a reason why the Judge ruled against the CMP in regard to releasing these videos and, as far as I’m concerned, David Daleiden and the rest of CMP should suffer the consequences of disobeying the Judge to the fullest extent of the law.
