FORUM: 7th Planned Parenthood Video and Saturday’s Rallies
“It’s time to stop this violence”
United States of America, (ZENIT.org) Staff Reporter
By Marissa Poulson of Alliance Defending Freedom
A baby’s beating heart.
It’s quite simply one of the most precious miracles of life.
A baby’s heart begins to beat around three weeks—just three weeks! Around five weeks, the baby’s heartbeat is often visible on an ultrasound. Around 10 weeks, a Doppler can pick up the sound.
Typically, a baby’s heartbeat is the first tangible connection that a mother has with her child. The heartbeat affirms to the mother the reality that there is life growing inside of her.
Perhaps that’s why the seventh Planned Parenthood video is so hard to watch.
In the video, a former StemExpress technician details her experience harvesting baby parts from a late-term aborted baby boy at a Planned Parenthood mega clinic in San Jose, CA. The goal was to harvest an intact brain from the baby’s head (which is bad enough), but before that could happen, her supervisor wanted to show her something “cool.”
“And she just taps the heart, and it starts beating. And I’m sitting here and I’m looking at this [aborted baby], and [his] heart is beating, and I don’t know what to think.”
It’s not cool that a baby boy’s heart beats at the slightest touch after he’s been killed. It’s not cool that his little body was cut open and his organs picked through.
It’s horrifying. It’s heinous. And it’s heartbreaking.
If you’ve watched the video, then you already know this (and if you haven’t watched it, please do so). It’s time to stop this violence and do everything we can to protect the lives of these innocent children.
Whether it’s signing a petition to investigate and defund Planned Parenthood, whether it’s contacting businesses that support Planned Parenthood, or contacting Congress to ask them to defund Planned Parenthood or thank your representatives who are working to do so, there are plenty of things that you can do right now to contribute to the movement to defund Planned Parenthood.
And there’s more. This weekend, on Saturday, August 22, pro-life community members will be holding rallies in front of Planned Parenthood clinics across the country.
The goal of these rallies is to help raise awareness about what Planned Parenthood is doing, to put pressure on the media to report the truth about Planned Parenthood, and to encourage government officials to redirect the half billion tax dollars Planned Parenthood receives every year to the over 13,000 alternative clinics that provide more comprehensive care without treating human life as a commodity to be sold. You can find your rally location here.
And please, don’t stop praying. Never, ever stop praying for these precious lives, for the mothers who may not know there are real alternatives to abortion and Planned Parenthood, and for the people involved in the abortion business.

The Cost of Abortion & Contraception Deception click below:
Michael Voris talks an in-depth discussion of the true, financial cost of abortion and its effects to the United States. Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches that, “The inalienable rights of the person must be recognized and respected by civil society and the political authority. These human rights depend neither on single individuals nor on parents; nor do they represent a concession made by society and the state; they belong to human nature and are inherent in the person by virtue of the creative act from which the person took his origin. Among such fundamental rights one should mention in this regard every human being’s right to life and physical integrity from the moment of conception until death” (CDF, Donum vitae III; CCC: 2273).

We are used to thinking of the Rockefellers as simply a byword for wealth, power and financial success. Perhaps we might think of them as determined businessmen or see them as great philanthropists. But the truth is far different; the Rockefeller Foundation is actively undermining the Catholic Church, and in the process, attempting to erase man’s natural orientation to the eternal.

Are the environmental movements and groups simply devoted to laudable, correct stewardship of God’s creation, or do they have a more sinister, hidden agenda? Is “global warming” being used as an excuse for something far darker? Is the final goal of the liberal elites behind the push of junk science population control, eugenics and Gaia worship?
