Abortion and Planned Parenthood

     Many of you probably know that Planned Parenthood has been selling aborted babies and their body parts, profiting from the death of the unborn. This dark truth has just recently come into the public eye thanks to a series of videos released by the Center for Medical Progress. For those unaware of what's happening, please take a look at Doug Wilson's writeup on the story ( and watch the video below.
     I thought I'd take this opportunity to share an excerpt from a report presented to the General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church in 1971. It's not exhaustive, but it provides a solid groundwork on the topic:
As we search the Scriptures for God's will concerning abortion, we find that the whole abortion issue can be reduced to one question: Is the fetus in the womb of the mother a human life? If the answer is yes, then abortion for the sake of convenience is murder, and the Christian church has the obligation to teach its members to protect and nourish the life of the unborn child. The sixth commandment gives an absolute prohibition against murder (Exodus 20:13), and so murder is never, under any circumstances, to be regarded as a moral option.    
 Often supporters of abortion confuse the issue by pointing to the financial and emotional hardships that both mother and child will face if a pregnancy is carried to full term. Certainly, the pressing social hardships surrounding unwanted pregnancies are enormous, but if an unborn child is a human life, some way of treating the problem must be found other than licensing the hospitals and clinics of our nation to perform mass executions of unwanted children.     So is a fetus in the womb of the mother a human life? I believe the Bible answers with a resounding yes! Consider the following evidence:
  1.  God relates in a personal way to the unborn child (Ps. 139:13-14; 51:5; Jer. 1:5; Luke 1:44). He does so because the child is created in his image.[2]
  1.  The Bible teaches that both conception and birth occur because of the sovereign rule of God (Gen. 21:1-2; 30:1-2; 1 Sam. 1:19-20; Job 31:15; 33:4; Ps. 100:3; 127:3). "It would be a willful act of defiance against the Creator intentionally to kill an unborn child whose conception is so intimately a divine as well as a human act."[3]
  1.  The Greek word for "child" in Luke 2:12 (brephos) is used in Luke 1:41, 44 to refer to John the Baptist while he was in his mother's womb. A Hebrew word for "child"(yeled) is used of the unborn in the mother's womb (Ex. 21:22).[4]
  1.  Theologian John Jefferson Davis points out that "the personal history of the Son of God on earth begins not when he was 'born of the Virgin Mary,' but when he was 'conceived by the Holy Spirit.' His human history, like ours, began at conception."[5]
  1. John the Baptist was filled with the Holy Spirit even while he was in his mother's womb (Luke 1:15).
The Bible treats human life, from conception to death, as a continuing experience. To willfully terminate it for reasons of convenience is murder. Faithfulness to the Word of God demands that this truth be taught in the church of Jesus Christ.

  1. Hi Caitlin, I just wanted to let you know that what you shared about Planned Parenthood is at least a rumor (I would call it a lie). A few media outlets have talked about the subject, and apparently what PP does is donate tissue to scientific research and get reimbursement for some of the costs of transportation. The material is donated by women with the hopes it helps cure degenerative neurological diseases, brain tumors, spinal cord injuries and others. The video you saw was edited from a longer footage who was released later (2.5 hours long). This was done on purpose by a group who's mission is damaging Planned Parenthood. Don't believe me, look it up.
    I'm not american but I follow the fundie subworld because I find it entertaining. It's funny to see people believe this type of things. Lol I can't imagine why someone would buy baby parts. If it was actual babies I'd be open to believe it but lol, you guys are amazing.

  2. Hi Carolina! I'm sorry to hear that you don't believe that they sell baby body parts for money. The video's don't lie. Some material might be donated by Woman... but, sad to say, most is not donated.
    Would you mind sending me the link to where you said that the longer footage was released? I can't find it, and I'm curious.
    I'm studying up on it, but would like to see the video that you're talking about...

    1. This CNN article links to the vídeo. Took me 2 minutes.

    2. Thanks for the video Carolina! I see in the video the facts are the same… I see the CNN news reporter, and planned parenthood website, say, “there is no financial benefit for tissue donation for either the patient or for planned Parenthood. In “some” instances, actual costs, such as the cost to rapport tissue to leading research centers, are reimbursed, which is standard across the medical field.”
      However in the video, the woman never said anything about the fetal pieces being donated by other women who knew about it.
      I'm sorry that you're Pro-choice, and that you feel like it's okay.
      I'm a Christian. I stand on the Word of God alone. Have a great week! Many blessings!


  4. Caitlin I would appreciate you being honest. I may have been sarcastic but I didn't lie. "The Pro-Life News Source" is evidently a lobbying site for the anti abortion agenda not a news outlet, and it's article says nothing different from what was discussed earlier... so what is the point? I don't feel I should be telling you this. I think you know quite well and you repeat yourself anyway because you want to believe this so much. You may not have published my comment but you read it. And you see I have a point.
    You don't care about truth. And it saddens me.

  5. Hi Carolina! I didn't publish your last comment because of some inappropriate things that you wrote, that I don't want on my blog. Lashing out in anger isn't going to help. I have my belief. I believe abortion is wrong... on top of that, to sell baby parts, whether or not the parent gets a say-so in the matter, is still biblically wrong. The point? Abortion is wrong. Getting money back for baby parts that someone let the abortion clinic have... is wrong.
    I don't see you have a point. You have your belief, and I have mine. I care about Gods truth... nothing more. God tells us that murdering is wrong. I'm sorry that it's making you mad, but I won't change. I stand on the Word of God alone. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog, and for commenting. Even though we don't agree on this issue, I appreciate your comment. Have a blessed week!

  6. I see you are willing to lie to defend something on false grounds. I have shown you there is no proof of the accusations. If you want to prove you point maybe you should consider providing the evidence for it, not repeating yourself. Because from the video that I showed you one can not conclude anything like that happened.
    Maybe you just hate seeing women who get abortions doing something nice for other human beings for completely selfless reasons.
    And I didn't write anything inapropriate. I think you just don't like to be wrong.

    1. I'm not lying. I'm speaking the truth. I ADMIT, that many times I'm wrong. You're right, I don't like to be wrong, but I am at times.
      I'm assuming you're pro-choice? Because, no matter what I say, or what articles I give you, you won't change your mind. Likewise, I know abortion is wrong according to the Word of God. Putting the selling baby parts aside, abortion is wrong. I'm not trying to "prove" a point. I'm simply stating that abortion is wrong, and so is selling baby body parts.
      obviously, we're not getting anywhere. You have your beliefs, and I have mine. If you'd like to discuss this further, I ask that you click on the "contact me" link on the sidebar.

    2. Dear Caitlin, I think you misunderstood me again. I understand you feel abortion is wrong and noone should do it ever. I won't tell you to change your mind about the issue. My intention was to point this particular piece of information was misleading, to say the least. I have the feeling, and forgive me for being honest, that in order to fight abortion you are willing to accept lies. Pro choice and pro life should both acknowledge this news are false (I believe I have provided sufficient reasons, in the comment you didn't post) for the sake of truth. That is what I mean by being honest about the information.
      The article you provided didn't add new data and doesn't explain why companies would be willing to pay for something they can get for free anyway. Also didn't mention the context of the longer video. It almost looks like they are trying to hide it or pretend as it doesn't exist. And I believe that is for a reason, tricking people into believing lies. And I don't appreciate that at all.

    3. I wasn't just referring to that video... but more of all these video's as well...

      I'm not going to change my mind about this. Abortion is wrong! Selling baby parts, or even taking baby parts (for free as you say) to experiment on, is wrong.
      I'm not tricking people into believing something that's "not true". Several states have already defunded planned parenthood because of the "selling of baby parts".
      You can believe what you'd like, I obviously can't change your mind. I'm sorry.
      I hope you have a great week!
