A pastor who has written a book on the church and social media said he believes that Planned Parenthood, not Facebook, is to blame for the blocking of posts with links to two op-eds by Christian leaders expressing outrage this week over Planned Parenthood's reported selling of aborted baby body parts.
Although Facebook later unblocked Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission President Russell Moore's posts with links to his piece on Tuesday, posts that included a link to an op-ed by Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Albert Mohler were blocked on Wednesday.
"I tried to share Al Mohler's post, which according to Feedly was 10 minutes old, and the attempt was blocked because the url had been flagged by other users as offensive," said Brandon Cox, who wrote the book, Rewired, and is editor of the online resource site Pastors.com. "With that kind of reaction, I can't help but come to the conclusion there's a concerted effort on the part of Planned Parenthood and their volunteer PR army to squash criticism." more >>
The Rev. Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan's Purse, said on Wednesday that people who perform abortions have "no conscience." His comment is a response to the undercover video released earlier this week that shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing the sell of fetal organs, such as hearts, lungs, livers, as well as limbs.
"Abortion is a sin and is clearly murder in God's eyes. The people who perform it have no conscience, so I'm not at all surprised that they would be selling organs, tissue, and body parts from babies. Planned Parenthood should be put out of business. They've done enough damage," wrote Graham on Facebook.
Graham also said he believes abortion will bring God's judgement on America. more >>
An in-depth undercover video released Tuesday shows a Planned Parenthood abortionist discussing how the billion dollar organization harvests and sells the intact body parts of aborted babies to fetal tissue wholesalers.
The video, first unveiled at the Center for Medical Progress website, is part of a three-year investigation into what the Center for Medical Progress is calling "illegal" practices by Planned Parenthood. Once received by fetal tissue wholesalers, the body parts are shipped to universities, pharmaceutical companies, and government agencies.
Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services who performs abortions up to 24 week gestation in Los Angeles, is captured in the video from July 25, 2014, saying the clinics perform partial birth abortions to secure fetal body parts. more >>
David Dalieden, project lead for the undercover video that caught a Planned Parenthood abortionist talking about selling aborted babies' body parts, has fired back at the organization's claims that the investigative report was "heavily edited" and "falsely portrays" its "mission."
Eric Fererro, Planned Parenthood's vice president of communications, argued Tuesday that California-based Center for Medical Progress, a group dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances, is: "A well funded group established for the purpose of damaging Planned Parenthood's mission and services [that] has promoted a heavily edited, secretly recorded videotape that falsely portrays Planned Parenthood's participation in tissue donation programs ..."
In the video titled "Planned Parenthood Uses Partial-Birth Abortions to Sell Baby Parts," Deborah Nucatola, a Planned Parenthood abortionist, said she plans her weekly abortion procuedures with the intent to extract and sell organs. "We've been very good at getting heart, lung, liver ... I'm not gonna crush that part," says Nucatola. "I'm going to basically crush below, I'm not gonna crush above, and I am gonna see if I can get it all intact." more >>
The video evidence is too clear to deny, as a powerful Planned Parenthood leader discusses the sale of baby parts – livers, limbs, tissue, and hearts – while casually eating her dinner, even describing how partial birth abortion is used to preserve those body parts which are in particular demand.
The leader in question is Planned Parenthood's Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, caught in a shocking undercover video that is sickening viewers as quickly as it is going viral. (The video excerpts we posted on my ministry's Facebook page were viewed more than 500,000 times in the first 10 hours, while the post itself reached well over 2 million Facebook users in that same period of time.)
In response, Planned Parenthood issued a pathetic, truly unbelievable explanation for this barbaric practice, as if the slaughter of the baby in the womb was not enough. No. The tiny infant's body parts must be trafficked as well. more >>
It's bad enough that Planned Parenthood is the nation's largest abortion business, and that on top of it, it receives tax dollars from you and me. The organization has been known to commit abuses and break the law though, documented for all to see, oftentimes by Live Action.
Sadly then, as horrific as it may be, it sadly is not shocking then that the Senior Director of Medical Service for Planned Parenthood, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who is the organization's top doctor, would be recorded discussing Planned Parenthood's fetal parts business. In the recording from Center for Medical Progress, a non-profit organization, Nucatola is shown having lunch with actors whom she thinks are potential buyers. A clip also shows Cecil Richards, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, praising Nucatola.
As part of her role, Nucatola oversees the medical practice of Planned Parenthood, trains abortionists for the organization and performs abortions at Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, up to 24 weeks. It also seems she is the face of another business tactic Planned Parenthood is involved with, "behind closed doors." more >>
