Today in the National Post Robyn Urback complains that pro-life people are being hard on Planned Parenthood. She says:
"Back in July, a series of controversial videos emerged purporting to show that Planned Parenthood was profiting of the sale of aborted fetal tissue, which is illegal, though the tapes actually went only so far as to confirm that the organization was being reimbursed for transport costs associated with donating tissue to medical research, which is legal."
It seems that like most "pro-choice" people, Ms.Urback probably never even bothered to watch the Planned Parenthood undercover videos. If she had, she would have been aware when there were negotiations between PP employees and the undercover person taking the videos, about the prices that would be charged for the fetal body parts. If the costs were truly only for transport costs, well then negotiations would not be needed would they? This is selling for profit pure and simple.
Ms. Urback also feels that calling Planned Parenthood an abortion factory is "morally disingenuous and utterly incorrect". Wow. Does she really believe that? What else does one call the systematic, repeated slaughter of children before they exit the womb if not an abortion factory?
What is morally disingenuous is not only the killing of these children, but making a profit from it. Unfortunately there are far too many people of the "pro-choice" persuasion who simply can't see this. Or maybe they don't want to see it.
