Only One Cecil, But 1.3 Billion Slaughtered Babies

Innocent Child

I sit sadly hearing about the tragic death of Cecil the African lion, quietly sipping tea, until I am interrupted by another news report about “babi …” (Oops, almost said “babies”) “fetus” parts being sold for cash, and medical research, by Planned Parenthood.

It brought to mind prior reports I’ve seen, such as:

“The remains of 17 babies in medical Ziploc bags – with their mothers’ names labeled on the outside – were found in a dumpster at a Woman’s Choice abortion clinic in Lansing, Michigan. (Under current Michigan law, these aborted babies and other biohazard waste can be placed in the trash as long as they are dipped in formaldehyde beforehand.)”

Another:

“In Lufkin, Texas, a 19-year-old man was convicted of murder after being found guilty of stomping on a mother’s stomach, at her request (she was carrying twins). Interestingly enough, though she had asked for his help, she was not prosecuted because ‘she could have had the same result by paying for an abortion.’”

Silly me! I was more outraged when I read the two above news stories than I was while being inundated with TV reports about Cecil the lion being killed by a dentist. Here was “poor Cecil” (himself a hunter who exercised his “right to choose” and killed other live animals for food) being killed by another hunter. Plus, the killer of Cecil used another dead animal to trick him into coming within range of his weapon. So, what about the animal that was killed to lure Cecil within range of the hunter? (Probably just some poor, unfortunate antelope.) Are we not upset about him, too?

Zimbabwe (along with some of our illustrious Hollywood celebrities) is now demanding that the “murderer of Cecil” be extradited and punished for his “crime.” I agree that Cecil was a magnificent creature. It is, indeed, a shame he was recklessly killed for no good reason. But really – we need to get some perspective here.

We now have a federally funded killing machine reaching unspeakable heights of depravity by not just killing babies at any and every stage of development, but selling their parts to the highest bidder. This is a mind bender.

We are having high-decibel national discourse about the fact that Planned Parenthood is selling baby body parts, yet we are unmoved that they are killing the “baby people” in the first place. And on top of that, everyone is enraged about a dead lion. A lion – not a human being! What is wrong with this picture?!

Babies are not some zygote/morula/blastocyst/embryo/fetus thingee inside a pregnant woman. A “fetus” is conveniently not identified as “human” – which makes it easy to debate away the “right to live” argument for the woman’s “right to choose” option. However, a woman’s “right to choose” legally permits something even more horrendous than the killing of Cecil; it is called a “partial-birth abortion.”

For the unenlightened minority, a partial-birth abortion is a procedure in which the abortionist pulls a living baby feet-first out of the womb and into the birth canal (vagina), except for the head, which the abortionist purposely keeps lodged just inside the cervix (the opening to the womb). The abortionist punctures the base of the baby’s skull with a surgical instrument, such as a long surgical scissors or a pointed hollow metal tube called a trochar. He then inserts a catheter (tube) into the wound and removes the baby’s brain with a powerful suction machine. This causes the skull to collapse, after which the abortionist completes the delivery of the now-dead baby.”

Will someone please explain to me the difference between removing a baby via C-section, where they enable it to live, and a partial-birth abortion, where they terminate a fetus? In both cases, the “thing” is out of the womb, so please tell me, what is the difference?!

Scientifically proven techniques, developed in the mid-1990s dealing with DNA, “have proven that each human being is totally unique immediately at fertilization [conception]. A human being at an embryonic age and that [same] human being at an adult age are … the same; the biological differences are due only to … maturity. Science has further discovered that the human being is fully programmed for human growth and development for his or her entire life at the age of one cell.”

Hmmm, as I ponder the tragedy of Cecil, it almost makes me wonder: Should I be as upset about the 6,828,378 abortions by Planned Parenthood since 1970, or the 58,128,431 abortions in the U.S. since Roe vs. Wade (thus far) as I am about Cecil?

Then, on the other hand, since Cecil is an international figure, should the worldwide figure of 1,343,355,594 (and counting) abortions since 1980 be of concern to me? And, since Cecil was from Africa, killed by an American, what about the almost 18 million African-American babies aborted since 1973?

Should I be upset? I guess not. After all, there was only one Cecil.

One thought on “Only One Cecil, But 1.3 Billion Slaughtered Babies

    The following posting is from my Facebook page, and deals with the horror of Planned Parenthood’s holocaust: The genocide of Black American babies.

    ——————————————————————————–
    In 1857, Black slaves were denied their humanity.
    In 1935, German Jews were denied their humanity.
    In 1973, American babies were denied their humanity.

    Subject:
    AMERICA’S BLACK HOLOCAUST: Planned Parenthood and Genocide

    A common thread:
    “I felt the same way about (using tax dollars to fund) the Viet Nam war as well as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. I had strong moral objections but paid my taxes because that was the law. Funds for abortion services at Planned Parenthood completely funded by donations. No tax dollars involved.”

    Sandy Kramer responds:
    “Tax dollars for Planned Parenthood are fungible. Every dollar sent for supposed non-abortion reasons frees non-restrictive funding dollars… Planned Parenthood plays fast and furious with the numbers. http://www.lifenews.com/2012/09/05/media-hides-fact-planned-parenthood-does-40-of-abortions/

    The organization’s founder, Margaret Sanger, was a self-avowed racist. The racist policies of Planeed Parenthood continue unabated to this day. Unspoken in most of the hullabaloo is the fact that Black neighborhoods are targeted – – – follow the money: 78% of Planned Parenthood’s clinics are in minority neighborhoods.

    Planned Parenthood’s claim that only 3 percent of its business activity – not of its revenue – is from abortion is no different than if a car dealership claimed that it wasn’t really in the business of selling cars because the number of new car sales was only a fraction of its total services provided (financing cars, repairing cars, providing manufacture recommended maintenance for cars, cleaning cars, and so forth). Of course no one would believe such an outrageous claim. Sure, a car dealership does all of those things, but its purpose is to sell cars.

    As far as providing non-abortive services for women, ObamaCare provides funding for such services. We must use our tax dollars to provide services to women’s organizations which are not INVOLVED in abortion and trafficking of human organs. This is not rocket science. The fact of the matter is that 51 percent of Planned Parenthood’s yearly clinic income – their only self-sustaining revenue source – comes from abortion: 329,445 abortions. All the accounting prestidigitation in the world doesn’t change this. If you can live with this, so be it. You don’t have to answer to me… Thank God.

    Some may try to justify their tax dollars being used to fund odious behavior by appealing to tax money being used for war, saying they felt the same objections about the Vietnam War. They had strong moral objections but paid their taxes because that was the law. I can only ask if they would have paid their taxes to Nazi Germany to support the Nuremberg Laws in 1935? Or would they have left the country or participated in civil disobedience rather than support actions which they could not condone?

    Justice Kennedy was lauded by liberals for his suffusion of the concept of “dignity” which he conveyed upon same-sex marriage. Yet these same “liberals” deny that same basic dignity to the remains of human beings. America has traveled far along the road of abomination. I dread contemplating our next steps. Dare the unspeakable be spoken? Perhaps we shall take the cause of starvation or energy generation under our immoral mantle? Is it truly that great of a leap from death without dignity to “Soylent Green”? Lest you scoff, take note of the fact that thousands of fetal remains were burned in hospitals in the United Kingdom in order to generate heat …

    Another common remark:
    “I always am amazed at the compassion and care anti-abortion activists have for babies right up to the moment they are born into poverty.”

    Sandy Kramer responds:
    “This is an antiquated red herring. Pro-lifers have sponsored charitable assistance and adoption centers for decades. But, please, don’t take my word for my defense of life. Just GOOGLE “Pro-life support for adoption”. You’ll have about 10,000,000 entries. Furthermore, by GOOGLING the phrase “Pro-life financial support for mothers”, you will find 5,000,000 results. There is a worse poverty than being financially indigent – it is the poverty of the soul. Martin Luther King, Jr., said: “The Negro cannot win as long as he is willing to sacrifice the lives of his children for comfort and safety.” How can the “Dream” survive if we murder the children? Every aborted baby is like a slave in the womb of his or her mother. The mother decides his or her fate. I was unable to do anything to stop the Nazi extermination of the Jews. I will be damned before I am silenced for trying to stop the genocide of my Black brethren.”
