The Republicans are currently working to keep, what was to most of them, a campaign promise. Since the first tax-payer dollars made their way to the eugenics-based organization disguised as a women’s health provider, the defunding of Planned Parenthood has been talked about by Christians and Conservatives alike. While Christians are clear on their moral reasons and Conservatives, have made compelling financial arguments for not supporting the Margaret Sanger founded abortion provider, for some reason the political left has insisted that our federal government should continue to fork over millions of dollars a year.
Planned Parenthood has played accounting games for years to document that they don’t spend American tax dollars on the abortions themselves. I would suggest that every dollar spent on any part of the organization simply allows them to use more money from other, private sources for abortions. Therefore, every dollar still goes to help pay to end innocent lives. The American left still claims that Planned Parenthood does “so much more than abortions,” but it doesn’t take long looking at Planned Parenthood’s own numbers to see a very different reality. Planned Parenthood’s most recent annual report shows increases in abortions and taxpayer funding with a decrease in contraception, breast exams, and overall patient numbers. They remain the largest abortion provider in the United States, having performed 328,348 abortions of unborn babies. Meanwhile, the abortion chain received more taxpayer funding. The report shows Planned Parenthood received $554.6 million, up from $553.7 million the previous year.
Forget the racist, eugenics beginnings of Planned Parenthood of Margaret Sanger saying her “birth-control” efforts were meant to rid us of black people and other undesirables. Then ask yourself why would an organization that receives so much money in private donations, that would hardly miss the half-billion dollars from the federal government, still require such ferocious defending by Democratic politicians? Every time the idea of ending it’s “meager” support of the illegal traffickers of embryonic tissue, the false narratives about reproductive rights, women’s health, a woman’s right to choose, and the Republican’s War on Women all come out to be used as a club to silence anyone who wants to end our subsidizing the murder of the unborn.
Setting my personal shock that the Catholic hasn’t already excommunicated Nancy Pelosi aside, has now sunk to a new low in the battle to protect the abortion-mill. She now claims that Republicans are dishonoring God in their effort to end the practice of handing the practitioners of child sacrifice tax-payer funds. Her reasoning, (and it’s a stretch to call it that) “… So, this is God’s creation; we have a real responsibility to it…to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us…”.
That’s right; Nancy Pelosi believes that Planned Parenthood is God’s creation and that it’s doing God’s will and that we are obligated, as an act of faith, to support it. I can’t quite square that with what I know about the God of the Bible (which I’m pretty sure is the God that the Catholic Church worships) nor can I quite understand how someone who claims to be a practicing Catholic could make such an outrageous statement.
Putting Dr. Sharon Schuetz’s suggestion that Pelosi now worships Moloch (not saying she is wrong, just putting it aside for the moment) there are sadly just a few options that make any sense. The first possibility is that Nancy has been noticing that evangelicals are showing up at the polls much more the last two election cycles and she thinks she can somehow lure them in with her talk of God.
Next, she simply knows her base and is desperate to instill the notion of normalcy of abortion among the religious, although it is entirely possible that she is merely trying to convince herself that she hasn’t sold her soul to win elections.
Then there is, to me, the saddest of them all; the possibility that Representative Pelosi has become so far removed from her faith that she might actually believe what she said. In an attempt to attack Republicans, she has revealed that she no longer has a grasp on the most basic of tenets of any denomination of the Christian faith… the sanctity of life.
“I know my colleagues are people of faith,” Pelosi said. “They tell us that all the time. So, this is God’s creation, we have a real responsibility to it…to minister to the needs of God’s creation is an act of worship. To ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us…”
Pelosi also told Republican lawmakers to “examine their consciences and look into their hearts” before they vote so they can “make a decision in favor of what is right.”
