Yesterday I discussed how the abhorrent practices of Planned Parenthood have contributed to the systematic murder of over 17 million unborn black babies since 1973 under the guise of providing women’s healthcare services. While the baby-killing behemoth is the leader in the industry, there have been others who have done their part in this holocaust.
In fact, one such case has recently fueled a debate that has reached the Supreme Court; the 2013 trial and conviction of Doctor—I use the term loosely—Kermit Gosnell. The chamber of horrors he called a women’s health center was the place where babies were murdered after being born alive. His favorite method of torture was to sever the spinal cord through the back of the neck. In addition, his practice was responsible for the death of a patient due to an anesthesia overdose.
Though not on the scale of Planned Parenthood—although cutting into live babies to kill them is pretty impressive as far as PP standards go—his case served as the impetus for several states to pass new restrictions on the baby-killing industry.
One of those states is Texas, where laws were passed that require abortionists to hold admitting privileges to local hospitals, and another requiring abortion facilities to maintain the same health and safety standards as any other outpatient surgery center.
You would think that Planned Parenthood and the rest of the abortion industry would favor such a law, right? After all, their primary concern is the health of women. But as has become all too clear, their business has NOTHING to do with women’s health and everything to do with protecting the unlimited ability to murder the unborn for profit.
This reality became evident in the Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt case heard in the Supreme Court yesterday, where the abortion lobby is attempting to have the Texas law tossed because it will cause an “undue hardship” as a result of having fewer locations to obtain an abortion.
Apparently, baby killers aren’t able to keep their doors open if they have to actually operate like a health center; which ironically proves two things:
- Existing facilities are operating in less-than-optimal conditions as far as women’s health is concerned.
- The abortion industry is willing to provide unsafe and unhealthy services as long as the baby-killing assembly line continues to operate.
Sadly, with the Supreme Court down one member following the untimely passing of Antonin Scalia, the outcome of this case is in serious doubt. And that’s one more reason to keep Obama—the man who wants abortion to be unlimited because he would never want one of his daughters to be punished with a baby—from successfully nominating a new justice.
