In a House hearing for de-funding Planned Parenthood, women who have survived abortions testified. One of these is Gianna Jessen.
Gianna’s mother tried to abort her baby 7 and a half months into the pregnancy. Gianna was born alive, but she testified that an abortionist “doctor” would have “finished the abortion” via strangulation, suffocation or leaving her to die. Since he wasn’t there yet, a nurse intervened, called an ambulance, and she was saved.
Gianna appealed to the House members, “Planned Parenthood is not ashamed of what they have done or continue to do. But we will have to give an account, as a nation, before God, for our apathy and for the murder of over 50 million children in the womb. Every time we falter in courage as individuals and fail to confront this evil, I wonder how many lives have been lost in our silence… How many children have died and been dismembered, and their parts sold, for our ego, our convenience, and our promiscuity? How many Lamborghinis were purchased with the blood of innocent children?”

Everyone in the room was greatly moved by her testimony – except for the Democrats. One Democrat, Rep. Steve Cohen, passionately defended Planned Parenthood and its murderous acts: We are not going back to [Dwight Eisenhower’s] America. It’s about abortion, period. For me, Planned Parenthood is part of my DNA. It’s one of the finest organizations in this country. It helps women, women of color, poor women, and it gives them a choice.”
“But we need Planned Parenthood to help women.” Democrats still resort to this cover up to re-direct attention away from Planned Parenthood’s atrocities, despite the fact that it has been exposed as grossly misleading and false.
There are more than 13,000 health clinics in the country that provide comprehensive, compassionate health care to women WITHOUT being under investigation for committing heinous crimes.
And the money currently going to Planned Parenthood can be redirected to these healthcare clinics.
But the fight goes so much deeper than de-funding Planned Parenthood. Many liberals are completely closed to the practical, legal, and moral arguments to de-fund Planned Parenthood because they are completely sold on an entirely different moral view of life.
They have shockingly inhumane attitudes towards what acts are humane in their eyes.
When asked if the dilation and evacuation procedure is humane, the Democrats’ witness, Priscilla Smith, said yes: “For a fetus, a pre-viable fetus, a D&E procedure is a very humane procedure.”
The bottom line is this: they do not acknowledge the inherent value and dignity of every human life. And that’s where the battle truly lies.
