The seventh Planned Parenthood video comes pretty close to Dante’s seventh circle. That’s not what scissors are for. But one of the first things I thought of after seeing it was the ninth circle, the circle dedicated to the treacherous. And that is what this is — treacherous, horrific, appalling, heinous, and cold as Hell.
Holly O’Donnell is the technician who worked for StemExpress, and who is testifying in the most recent of the sting videos. And, by the way, when I googled StemExpress to find out if it was two words or one, I was helpfully informed by Google through their suggested sub-directory searches that I can still buy fetal liver if I want, and at the very end of this macabre list was the “wish list” option. What do I wish they could put in my shopping cart for me?
The fact that Planned Parenthood is being evil, and is committing indecencies that are beyond vile, does not mean that they are guilty of every evil. They are murderous, but that does not make them guilty of every murder. The first videos were damning because we could see what the abortionists were doing directly, we could hear them talking about it themselves.
But one of the earlier videos relying on the testimony of O’Donnell was not like that. We heard her saying what other people were doing in the other room. This was an allegation of a great evil, but there was no independent corroboration. This was just one witness.
The fact that Planned Parenthood has forgotten the rule of justice does not mean that those of us who hate what they are doing are allowed to forget it also. And so as I listened to O’Donnell’s earlier testimony, I adopted a wait-and-see approach. I knew there were more videos coming, and I wanted to see if there was going to be corroboration of what she was saying. This video put all those concerns to rest.
This is because what O’Donnell is giving us here is a confession. She is not telling what other people are doing, and expecting us to take the word of one witness for it. She is telling us what she did. And she is doing it in a context where her confession is entirely supported by the surrounding evidence. And so the answer is yes — America is a place where some people do this, other people give them a ton of money to help them do it, and then other people vote the ghoul-enablers to the U.S. Senate. We the people, incidentally, are that last group of “other people.”
If there is to be any hope of dismantling the fabric of lies that have enabled us to become the nation that does these things, and then impudently refuses to stop funding it, it would seem that such hope has to be found in the current moment.
If you took all the skulls of all the babies aborted since Roe and set them side by side, that mournful line would reach from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and probably part way back. And that line would tell you everything you need to know about our spiritual condition. We are a wreck — and the only way out for such wrecks is to repent and call upon the Lord who bled on the cross and rose from the dead. No other way.
If not now, when? If not when confronted by such appalling constitutionalities, what would it take? Abortion is evil, and we are an abortion nation.
