The Detroit Free Press editorial board has issued an editorial defending Planned Parenthood’s practice of trafficking in the body parts and organs of unborn human beings.
The Free Press works diligently to downplay Planned Parenthood’s
role in the abortion industry, parroting the typical talking
points. Free Press readers would be surprised to learn that
Planned Parenthood is the leading abortion provider in America,
providing more than 300,000 abortions a year, and that by any reasonable estimation abortion makes up a very sizable portion
(30%-40%) of their clinic revenue.
The editorial claims the videos exposing Planned Parenthood are a
“sophisticated, concerted attack unparalleled in its history,
aided and abetted by presidential politics.”
The Free Press says the videos are “carefully edited.” Notably,
the Free Press editorial doesn’t link directly to the full,
unedited videos for readers to make up their owns minds. Nor does
the Free Press even seem to be aware that two more videos were
released this week. There’s a reason for that. The Free Press
would prefer to brush aside discussions and images of hearts,
lungs, livers and brains being harvested and trafficked by
saying, “Some comments made by Planned Parenthood officials are,
without question, distasteful.”
Any sensible person would wonder which comments were distasteful
and why they were so distasteful. The Free Press feels no
need to share that information.
That’s because the editorial board at the Detroit Free Press
doesn’t have the courage to look at what’s on those videos, much
less defend it. They don’t want their readers to know that a
Planned Parenthood employee says, “And another boy!” after sifting
through the remains of an unborn child and discovering male
Or hear Mary Gatter, the President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical
Director’s Council, haggle over what price their affiliate would
be compensated with for the tiny organs.
Or hear Savita Ginde, Vice-President and Medical Director of
Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, say, “I think a per item thing works a little better, because we can see how much we can get out of it.”
Also missing from the Free Press editorial is any mention of how
Planned Parenthood abortionists openly discussed changing their
techniques in order to retrieve organs that are intact. This is a
violation of law and the consent agreement Planned Parenthood
provides to women. The Free Press wouldn’t want their readers to
know that Planned Parenthood Medical Director Deborah Nucatola
describes how she crushes the body of an unborn child above and
below the abdomen but attempts to preserve the abdomen so
the organs remain intact.
The Detroit Free Press editorial board gladly blind themselves and
their readers to the atrocities which occur everyday in Planned
Parenthood abortion clinics. They do this because they realize
that if America sees what really happens behind closed doors,
support for abortion may dwindle as our society begins to
recognize that these aren’t clump of cells being removed,
but tiny humans with intact organs who are being dismembered.
