Barack Obama has so far been silent on the series of investigative videos done by Center for Medical Progress that exposed the heinous and illegal practices of abortion at Planned Parenthood and their harvesting and selling of the organs of babies killed in the womb. The most recent video shows Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, selling intact bodies of aborted babies.
Despite calls from pro-life supporters to defund Planned Parenthood, which receives $500 million in taxpayer money from the federal government, the Obama administration has not only not watched the videos, they have also repeated the talking points spouted by Planned Parenthood on abortion when asked to address this controversy.
As pointed out by the Center for Medical Progress, the practices of Planned Parenthood are not just criminal, they are felonies.
The sale or purchase of human fetal tissue is a federal felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison or a fine of up to $500,000 (42 U.S.C. 289g-2). Federal law also requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).
While Obama is choosing to ignore the investigative videos which captured Planned Parenthood’s top doctors admitting to illegally harvesting baby organs, illegally altering the method of abortion to harvest the organs, and selling whole bodies of aborted babies, he has chosen to hypocritically lecture Africans visiting the White House about how harvesting organs in voodoo practice is wrong.
A Kenyan woman visiting the White House as part of the Young African Leaders Initiative [YALI] said to Obama, ““Persons with albinism in Africa are being killed and their body parts harvested for ritual purposes. My request to you is to raise this issue with heads of state of African countries to bring these atrocities to an end.”
Obama’s response is mind-boggling, disingenuous, a sadly hypocritical as he lamented over the need to protect the vulnerable.
“Young people, you can lead the way and set a good example. But it requires some courage because the old thinking, people will push back at you and if you don’t have convictions and courage to be able stand up for what you think is right, then cruelty will perpetuate itself,” he said. He added, “If there’s one thing I want YALI leaders to come out with, it’s the notion of you are strong by taking care of the people who are vulnerable, by looking after the minority, looking after the disabled, looking after the vulnerable. You’re not strong by putting people down you’re strong by lifting them up. That’s the measure of a leader.”
Mollie Hemingway over at The Federalist points out the ludicrous nature of another comment Obama made.
Obama also tied the practice of harvesting organs from albinos with racism and discrimination against gay people and urged consistency in how they view the sanctity of human life if they want to complain about human rights abuses.
Watch Obama address this at the 48 minute mark.
Obama lectures on the sanctity of life?
This from a man who refuses to either acknowledge or heaven forbid watch the investigative videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s barbaric and illegal abortion practices used to harvest the organs of babies murdered in the womb. This from a man who believes in infanticide. This from a man who sang the praises of the baby butchers at Planned Parenthood and asked God to bless their work.
Barack Obama could care less about the sanctity of the innocent lives of babies. After all, he did say he sees them as a burden. Leave it to him, the ultimate hypocrite, to invoke the words “sanctity of life” as he lectures those from another country.
