If the enemies of Planned Parenthood wanted to make the organization look bad, they could not done have a better job than the baby-killing corporation did for itself with its new slogan and ad campaign. The slogan? “Care. No matter what.” The ad campaign? “Your Baby Will Thank You.”
Too bad Dr. Kermit Gosnell didn’t think of the slogan first. He could have boasted, “We provide baby-killing care no matter what. In the womb. Outside the womb. Early in the pregnancy. Late in the pregnancy. You just come in pregnant, and we guarantee you’ll leave without a baby—although we might just keep some of the baby parts as trophies of the excellent ‘care’ we provide.”
Yes, mothers, your babies would certainly have thanked you for bringing them to such a caring doctor: “Mommy, I started to whimper, and I was so afraid, but then that nice man snipped my spine, and I didn’t feel anything anymore.”
Here in Charlotte, N.C., the city’s busiest abortion clinic (located on Latrobe Drive), provided a different level of “care” for its customers. This week, the Catholic News Herald reports it was temporarily shut down after “inspectors from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services conducted a surprise visit to Latrobe April 19-20 and did additional investigation work in late April and early May.
“They found ‘that conditions at A Preferred Women's Health Center, LLC, present an imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare of the clients and that emergency action is required to protect the clients.’
“They found that the facility was improperly administering chemical abortions and improperly examining post-abortive women before they were discharged from surgery. ... These health violations come on the heels of a similar investigation in December, when state inspectors found dead insects, blood splatters and dirty surgical instruments inside the abortion facility.” (This is a link to the actual report.)
The Latrobe clinic also failed to reassemble the body parts of the aborted babies—clinically and coldly called the P.O.C., or “products of conception,” a procedure which is intended to ensure that the mother’s uterus is completely emptied of any baby remains.
At Latrobe, mothers had to return to get some of the leftover “products of conception” evacuated from their wombs. Planned Parenthood should be proud of the extra “care”! (Of course, these “products of conception” soon become “medical waste,” so, not to worry.)
And what would the babies have to say about this? “Thank you, Mommy, for bringing me to such a wonderful, caring place. When the nice doctor realized that he left my arm in your belly, he took it out the next time free of charge.”
Apparently the folks at Latrobe weren’t as careful with their trophies as Dr. Gosnell was. But then again, Dr. Gosnell didn’t have the same way with words as did another colleague with his own house of horrors, late-term abortion specialist Dr. LeRoy Carhart.
As documented in a chilling video, Dr. Carhart had this dialogue with a prospective patient:
Woman: So I’ll have a dead baby in me?
Dr. Carhart: For three days, yeah.
Woman: Will it start to decay or something?
Dr. Carhart: No, it’s like putting meat in a Crock-Pot, OK? ... In a slow cooker.
Woman: And what do you use to break it up? Just—
Dr. Carhart: A whole bunch of, you know—
Woman: You’ve got a toolkit.
Dr. Carhart: A pickaxe, a drill bit, you know ...
“Oh Mommy, I really like this doctor. He has a special toolkit for sucking out my brains, and he thinks I’m really special, like ‘meat in a Crock-Pot.’ Can we see Dr. Carhart if you decide to abort me too late for the other nice doctors and nurses?”
Yes, dear mothers, as Planned Parenthood says proudly, your baby will thank you.
And according to Dr. Carhart, the mothers will then thank him:
Dr. Carhart: And I think out of respect and love and honor for this baby that you’ve lost, you will find yourself being a better person. ... Postpartum depression is really very common, but post-abortion depression? I can honestly tell you that I haven’t seen one—one person that way, and ... I’ve not had anybody leave there feeling worse than they came.
In fact, it seems that lots of people are thanking doctors like LeRoy Carhart these days. His few colleagues who continue to perform the barbaric, late-term procedures have been celebrated in a new film entitled After Tiller, which the Hollywood Reporter says “chronicles the lives of the only [four] physicians in the country still performing third-trimester abortions in the wake of the assassination of Dr. George Tiller in 2009. ...
“The audience [at the Sundance Film Festival] gave a standing ovation for the filmmakers as well as the four featured doctors who were on hand to take questions from the audience after the film.”
Yes, let’s all rise and applaud these noble and courageous doctors. And while we’re at it, let’s all thank Planned Parenthood for caring, no matter what. Unfortunately, it will be hard to hear our voices over the din of 55 million babies as they join together with one voice and say, “Thank you, Mommy, for killing me!”
Oh, yes, I know that millions of moms agonized over the decisions they made and many live with guilt until this day. All the more, then, must Planned Parenthood be exposed.
