Josef Mengele Would Be Proud

I come from a long line of medical doctors, my grandfather faithfully dedicating half his career as an obstetrician/gynecologist. I, like my grandfather, am for women’s healthcare, and I am for choice. I am for choice because I do not believe intrusion into our daily lives by any persons or entities, especially government, that would restrict our choices is warranted by our republican system. Women should have the right to do as they see fit to do with their bodies, and to have full access to all measures of medical services. In full disclosure, though, I also hate most of humanity because, in my opinion from decades of being a chronicler and witness to it, it is evil at its primal core. Thus, whenever someone wishes to mitigate the circumstances of population increase, I am very supportive. Yet, as GOP presidential hopeful Carly Fiorina succinctly stated, “It doesn’t matter whether you think you’re pro-choice or pro-life. Every woman, every man has to look at these videos and think, what has gone wrong in our nation?” Exactly. When situations other than providing medical services come into play - such as describing “crushing” a fetus in ways that keep internal organs intact for the sole purpose of marketing to the highest bidder - the debate is no longer about simply providing healthcare.

How can any sane person not be sickened and shocked by the chillingly garish admissions of Planned Parenthood personnel concerning their fetal organ harvesting program? Especially, female medical staff who so callously describe - seemingly without an ounce of motherly instinct or remorse - the mechanisms and procedures for harvesting fetal organs like that of a detached technician as if working on inanimate equipment. Frankly, killing babies to sell their organs is scientifically unethical, goes against any reason given latest medical breakthroughs and, simply put, is inhuman behavior for civilized society. Admittedly, it is obviously beyond my own ethics, reason and values to understand how anyone who supports ethical science, reasoned inquiry and humanistic values cannot be disturbed by actions that go against all of those principles.

As Lila Rose, president of pro-life group Live Action, stated, echoing the sentiment of Edmund Burke, “Silence in the face of such atrocity is complicity.” We thought humanity had learned that lesson with the downfall of the Nazi regime and their depraved experimentation on children and adults alike. Apparently, we were wrong. In the end, it increasingly seems to depend on the life whether “all lives matter,” or if it is more arbitrary than we, as a civilized society, care to admit. After all, we have already seen what happens when mob mentality dictates that idea.
