I’m beginning to think it’s impossible to keep up with the passing parade of insults and assaults on the conscience of America. I believe we are witnessing the death march of a once great nation.
In a video just released Tuesday, July 14th, clearly, and graphically shows a lengthy * conversation with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, while she enjoys her lunch – punctuated with sips of wine, she details the harvesting and sale of human tissue from aborted fetuses (AKA unborn babies.) It is a film that must be seen to be believed. It is a film that cannot be unseen once it is.
When I was younger, I dabbled in the theater arts. Some of my experiences included acting lessons as well as the opportunity to play on stage. I recall once how one director explained the best way to portray an evil character: It was to deliver the lines not with a snarl or a menacing look – but with the face and demeanor of someone casually and calmly enjoying the horror of their words and deeds. I believe America should see Dr. Nucatola for what she is: Evil.
If the judgment is harsh – so be it. State and Federal laws may well figure into the filmed interview’s revelations and that inevitably will entail months if not years of litigation. Regardless, harvesting human body parts is most assuredly, patently horrific. Scheduling an abortion to facilitate harvesting optimal human tissue is illegal. Terminating a life for the purpose harvesting human body parts is illegal – indeed it qualifies as homicide. But there is nothing redemptive or even excusable with the Planned Parenthood medical director’s damning remarks. In short, what this video reveals is completely depraved and utterly immoral.
If a case can be made that Planned Parenthood is at the center of a concerted effort to profit from the sale of human body parts (and I firmly believe there is such a case) then the only course of action is to pursue legal action relentlessly – including a congressional investigation. But will there be such action? And, if there is, will will it really put these people out of business?
I once thought I could depend on the idea of “do the right thing” as the way this nation operated. The last few years, however, has begun to wipe that notion away. Once again, I am reminded of how much a stranger I have become in my own country.
How very, very sad. Human life has so little coin anymore. I want to weep.
For further commentary worth reading: (I am particularly resonant with Al Mohler’s observation taken from Nucatola’s comment: “A lot of people want intact hearts these days.”)
* There are two versions of this video released online. The embedded version on this site is the “short” version. A longer version may be found here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4UjIM9B9KQ. It is worth watching if you want to dispel any notion the short release is edited for effect.
