The Center for Medical Progress has been releasing videos showing how Planned Parenthood has been selling organs and body parts of murdered babies for profit. In one of the more recently released videos, the baby’s heart was still beating as the abortion staff removed its brain to sell to a research firm.
The videos have been so horrifying that many are turning away from Planned Parenthood. Protests outside Planned Parenthood centers have been increasing and various state legislatures have been taking notice of the changing support for America’s number one baby murdering institution. As a direct result of the released videos, Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana and New Hampshire legislatures took steps to defund Planned Parenthood.
Utah has followed the example of the other four states by joining them in defunding Planned Parenthood programs that provide STD testing and sex education in the public schools. Gov. Gary Herbert made it clear that Utah is not defunding STD testing and sex education programs in the state, but that the money that would go to Planned Parenthood for those programs will be re-directed to other agencies. One report said that the funding would go to 26 other health agencies in 49 locations throughout the state.
At a press conference, Herbert stated:
“We really do care about women’s health, and the idea that women’s health will be shortchanged in this process is not accurate.”
Protesters are already lining up at the state capital claiming that women’s health will suffer and that there will be more unwanted pregnancies due to the defunding of Planned Parenthood. They fail to acknowledge that many other health agencies within the state also provide STD testing and pregnancy counseling for women of all ages.
One high school girl defended Planned Parenthood’s sex education material by saying that it gives the information they need to help them protect themselves. My answer to this is that if they were not having sex outside of marriage there wouldn’t be any need for protection or STD testing. It’s been proven time and again that the only sure way to protect against STDs and unwanted pregnancies is abstinence. However, very few school programs teach abstinence these days. Instead they teach kids that sex is okay as long as they take precautions.
Hopefully more states will take measures to defund Planned Parenthood and eventually force the murder giant to permanently shut their doors.
Our society in general has abandoned the moral foundations that prevailed in our nation for over 200 years. With the acceptance of premarital and extramarital sex along with the acceptance of homosexuality and other sexual perversions, America has become a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah and we all know how God judged them. Our time is coming.
