In a recent interview on Mama Grizzly Radio, former Governor of Alaska Sarah Palin criticized Planned Parenthood’s organ harvesting business. She said, “Planned Parenthood needs to be defunded and shut down. It is such a sham business. This BS of them touting all the medical services they provide women and the free healthcare–They don’t provide all these services. They are able to refer out services. It’s immoral, it’s unethical, it’s disgusting, it’s despicable, this butcher shop that we see now that they are.”
As LifeNews previously reported, in five videos released by the Center of Medical Progress Planned Parenthood’s top executives are seen haggling over the price of aborted babies’ body parts, admitting to altering abortion procedures to procure salable organs and casually discussing ways their doctors can “crush” unborn babies to obtain fully intact parts. Additionally, a sixth video was released yesterday featuring former Stem Express phlebotomist Holly O’Donnell.
In the new video, O’Donnell explains how Planned Parenthood worked with Stem Express to procure fetal body parts and pressured patients into “donating” their aborted babies to research. However, she also said that sometimes Planned Parenthood employee’s harvested aborted babies’ organs without their patients consent.
Breitbart News reports that Palin credited her son for helping her keep perspective in the midst of the Planned Parenthood scandal. She said, “Planned Parenthood does not reflect our nation’s culture and they more than likely do not tell women who come in for abortions that their baby’s organs and body parts will be bartered and sold. The left would be going ballistic if we were talking about puppies or lion cubs or anything besides babies. Family helps me keep everything in perspective. Trig is functioning well. He’s the light of our life.”
Palin welcomed Trig into her family in April 2008. Trig has Down syndrome and in the past people have made of fun of him because of his condition. For example, in 2013, Comedian Bill Maher called Trig retarded and Barbara Walters later defended his comment.
In 2014, atheist bioethicist Richards Dawkins said that aborting children with Down syndrome was the “sensible thing to do.” He also said if a woman finds out she will have a child with the condition, she should “abort and try again.”
In response, Palin said on Facebook, “I’d let you meet my son if you promised to open your mind, your eyes, and your heart to a unique kind of absolute beauty. But, in my request for you to be tolerant, I’d have to warn Trig he must be tolerant, too, because he may superficially look at you as kind of awkward. I’ll make sure he’s polite, though!”
So far, 12 states have responded to the Planned Parenthood videos and launched investigations into their abortion and organ harvesting business including South Carolina, Florida, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Kansas, Missouri, Arizona, Indiana, Ohio, Georgia, Texas and Louisiana. The district attorney in Houston Texas is also investigating after the Houston-based Planned Parenthood abortion facility was caught selling aborted babies.
Congress has expanded its investigation into the Planned Parenthood abortion business and three states have revoked taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood’s abortion business, including Alabama, New Hampshire and Louisiana.
The full, unedited videos have confirmed that revelations that some aborted baby remains sold by Planned Parenthood go to biotech companies for the purpose of creating “humanized” mice. Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has been exposed as having sold body parts from aborted babies for as much as 15 years.
