Where Is the Outrage?

Thursday, April 22nd, 2010

What will it take for the media to get on a real story of child abuse — not decades-old cases of clerical sex abuse, but the present involvement by the abortion industry in covering up the rape of children and lying to women about the nature of abortion?

In the last two weeks, the pro-life group LiveAction, headed by the intrepid Lila Rose, has put out two undercover videos of her experiences in abortion clinics.

The first found her in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wisconsin.  Posing as a young girl seeking an abortion, she was told by a Planned Parenthood employee that her 6 to 8 week-ole baby had “no arms, no legs, no heart no head, no brain”, and that an unborn child at that age has no “identifiable parts” and is just “fetal matter.”  The clinic employee discouraged her from adoption, and urged her to have an abortion right as soon as possible.  View the video for yourself, and you’ll feel your blood pressure go up, especially if you have a daughter.  Yes, that’s really “pro-choice” — lying to women and pressing them to destroy their children.

The next video is the worst.  Lila goes into an abortion clinic in Kentucky, claiming to be a 14-year-old girl who is 14 to 15 weeks pregnant.  The clinic worker coldly explains to her how she can evade the state’s parental notification laws by obtaining a “judicial bypass”, with the help of a local attorney.  So much for informed choice, if the girls’ parents won’t even know about the abortion.

That was bad enough, but what happened next is stomach-turning.  The worker asks Lila how old her “boyfriend” is, and Lila tells her outright that he is 31 years old.  The clinic worker doesn’t bat an eye, and just tells her that this won’t be a problem for the “judicial bypass”.

Think about that for a nauseating second — a 31-year-old adult, having sex with a 14-year-old.  That is rape, and it should be reported to the authorities instantly.  View the video for yourself and be sickened at the callousness of the clinic worker, who clearly just doesn’t care — after all, what’s  little rape when you’re in the murder business?

In a day when technical flaws in cars are the subject of endless headlines, and where deception and fraud on Wall Street produces Presidential addresses, what does it say when child-rape and deception aren’t even newsworthy?

It says to me that the conscience of our society has been deadened by indifference to and cooperation in the worst kind of child abuse — the killing of unborn children.  And until we recapture our reverence for human life at its earliest stages, all sorts of horrors are possible — and may even be inevitable.

Turning the Tables on the Culture of Death

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

In the last several weeks, two women have given us fine examples on how to turn the tables on the Culture of Death by doing a very simple thing — exposing the truth about abortion.

Our first truth-teller is Catherine Davis, the minority-outreach director for Georgia Right-to-Life.  An African-American, Ms. Davis looked into the impact of abortion on blacks and was horrified at what she found — although blacks make up only 13% of the American population, they have almost 40% of abortions, and almost 40% of black pregnancies end in abortion.

Her response was to start going to black churches and communities, and talking about this little-known truth.  The reaction has been striking, as blacks have reacted in horror to what is happening in their families.

Her most recent effort has garnered a lot of attention, even in the mainstream media.  A series of billboards have been put up in the Atlanta with the provocative statement, “Black children are an endangered species”, and a Web site, www.toomanyaborted.com.  The news media has reacted by reporting on the “racial controversy”, but it has enabled Ms. Davis to get her point across.

Good for her.

Our second truth-teller is Lila Rose, who has released the latest of her series of video exposes of what goes on in Planned Parenthood abortion clinics when she goes in, posing as a pregnant teenager made pregnant by an adult. You can view her videos at her website, Live Action.

She has consistently found that the clinic workers tell teenage girls to lie about the age of the men who got them pregnant, to evade laws requiring them to report incidents of statutory rape.  They also give advice on how to evade laws requiring parental notification when a minor seeks an abortion.  These exposes have actually led to some investigations of Planned Parenthood clinics.

Good for her.

Unfortunately, the rampant lawlessness of Planned Parenthood hasn’t stopped them from enjoying public favor and large amounts of government funding.  Maybe that would change if they were a car maker with faulty accelerators instead of an organization that corrupts young people with wicked “sex education” and kills a quarter of a million children each year.

These incidents highlight once again that our greatest weapon in fighting the Culture of Death is the truth.  And that individuals can make a difference in the cause of life by standing up and speaking the truth.
