President Obama is big on collectives. He thinks that, since didn’t pass his gun control legislation, we are “collectively responsible” for those shot and killed at a community college in Oregon. He’s getting pretty darned tired of having to point this out every time there’s a mass shooting. Jacob Sullum at Reason is getting pretty darned tired of explaining why this makes no sense.
Last weekend in Obama’s adopted hometown Chicago 14 people were shot, 6 were killed. Chicago has the gun control laws the president says we need.
Cecil the Lion chased baby body parts off the front page. The Planned Parenthood scandal isn’t popular with the Washington Elite. The Obama administration thinks Planned Parenthood adheres to the the highest ethical standards for fetus crunching. The Senate had no stomach for defunding the organization.
It wasn’t just the lion story. As of July 24 Michael Barone says there were 773 stories about the confederate flag compared to 31 on the Planned Parenthood video.
Planned Parenthood defends itself by saying the organs harvested from aborted fetuses go to research that saves lives. If that’s the case it’s a generational wealth and health transfer. Most of the saved lives belong to older people. The survival rate of the fetuses is zero.
Kirsten Powers, in a column titled “Crush Planned Parenthood”, quotes a friend:
My friend and former Obama White House staffer Michael Wear tweeted, “It should bother us as a society that we have use for aborted human organs, but not the baby that provides them.”
Ken Blackwell says that when it comes to abortion, black lives don’t matter.
It’s not surprising that schools and theaters would be considered soft targets for sickos and terrorists. But U.S. military bases? The men and women gunned down in the “workplace violence” at Fort Hood were unarmed. So were the four Marines and a sailor killed by an Islamic extremist at two Navy recruitment centers in Chattanooga.
Parts is parts to Deborah Nucatola.
Nucatola is the senior director of medical research at Planned Parenthood. She was caught on video discussing her method for harvesting body parts from the babies she aborts.
“I’d say a lot of people want livers”, she explained while swirling a glass of wine. In order to deliver quality parts Nucatola uses ultrasound to locate an organ and then “crushes” the baby above and below the desired part.
This use of ultrasound outraged Michele Malkin.
Think about that. Planned Parenthood has officially declared it “torture” for women to see their unborn children through ultrasound before submitting to abortion.
Her point is that Planned Parenthood fights laws requiring that women be shown fetal ultrasounds before an abortion can be performed.
Here’s Kevin Williamson, in National Review:
Abortion is a brutal business — emphasis on business. Planned Parenthood takes in a half-billion dollars a year in government money; its financial footprint is the same size as that of the NCAA.
