Cecile Richards Can’t Hear the Silent Screams of the Unborn
Three House members issued a letter  to Speaker Boehner demanding an apology for the House Oversight Committee’s investigation into Planned Parenthood, and their cross-examination of that company’s president, Cecile Richards.
“(CNSNews.com) – Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), and Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) released a letter  Tuesday evening to House Speaker John Boehner, saying that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee should “extend an apology” to Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards for ‘ideologically based personal attacks’ in the committee’s hearing investigating the organization last week.”
They want pro-lifers to apologize for speaking on behalf of the souls Planned Parenthood has wiped out.
Those children aren’t supposed to be given identity, even as human, according to Planned Parenthood. Yet each one of the more than 300,000 aborted unborn children per year by the money-hungry company had the potential for greatness for all humankind.
Planned Parenthood defenders continue to say that the videos that exposed  their house of horrors were “highly edited,” and yet, I still saw hundreds of children’s arms and legs and bodies and faces when I forced myself to watch them. If they were “highly edited,” in other words, cut down, I really don’t need to see more evidence of a twisted and sick industry.
Planned Parenthood should seek forgiveness, not an apology.
Quite fitting, isn’t it, when representatives of government demand atonement upon their authority to, in essence, continue to dehumanize the souls of children? They suffer from a lack of empathy few have, and they are placing themselves in competition with ISIS for cold indifference toward human life.
In their defense, Planned Parenthood made their own video  about a woman who found out that her child would not live long outside the womb. “April,” was told her child wouldn’t last. So she made the decision to abort at 21 weeks. She couldn’t deal with the thought of having a baby in her arms that might die there, so everything was taken care of so she couldn’t see. During abortions, women are told the procedure will be carefully done so that she feels little discomfort and pain, but the child’s death isn’t treated as kindly.
At 21 weeks, children are forming eyebrows and have fingerprints, and soon will be kicking inside the womb. Research also shows that the child can hear your voice, and by this time you will know if you are having a boy or girl, if you choose to find out. April was having a boy, and she was told his lungs wouldn’t develop properly.
You’d have to be a monster to not empathize with April’s story. What heartbreak to find that your child will die shortly after you give birth. Yet this example shows the difference between those of us who believe life begins at conception and ends at natural death, and those who do not.
The choice to nurture that child within the womb is a choice too, and exposes the lie that “pro-choice” means anything. At 21 weeks, you have a child who is alive and soon-to-be kicking, knows your voice and hears you sing and talk. He is a part of your life, but he has his own life too.
What if the choice was made to carry the child to term, and hold him as his soul leaves his body and ascends to Heaven? He is innocent; he surely is a saint. Why instead should his last moments be trying to move away from the suction of a vacuum that will tear him limb from limb, and the pain from the crush of forceps?
The emotional toll for women who undergo heartbreak when their child dies is terrible. But why can’t Cecile Richards see that ending the child’s life is worse, especially in such a brutal tortuous way , than any emotional turmoil Mom is feeling. Emotional pain is a part of life, but death is death.
So, on behalf of the millions of aborted babies Planned Parenthood has committed and will continue to commit with our tax dollars, I demand an apology for their brutal treatment of the unborn, their inhumane handling of these little one’s remains and their reluctance to heed to the silent screams of God’s children.
