Planned Parenthood is bad enough, now this......

I was alerted to a despicable and horrific Facebook group post yesterday that equaled the barbarism of Planned Parenthood selling baby parts.  I question the actual existence of this group, but sadly, in this day and age, nothing surprises me.  I checked, and googled them and found nothing that confirms or refutes their existence.  It might be satire, or someone that just doesn't have one ounce of  empathy or compassion.  Who knows, it just might be someone from Planned Parenthood ...

Abortion is not something to be taken lightly or used to elicit laughs.  With that in mind, I want to bring the focus from levity to reality.  

The information provided next to ad says, “Even though they know they have made the correct choice, many women will feel a sense of loss after terminating a pregnancy. Luckily, there is now a way to watch that fetus grow, while also having a positive impact on the environment. Over 33% of American women will have an abortion before the age of 45, and over 1 million abortions are performed each year; imagine the effect on our carbon footprint if that resulted in 1 million new trees being planted each year! So, unless you have already earmarked your aborted fetus to be harvested for scientific research, consider making the right choice for yourself and the environment, and plant a tree today.”

What a nonsensical means to assuage the guilt.  I don’t think any woman that has entered an abortion clinic leaves thinking, “Problem solved, I’ll plant a tree and watch my baby grow,” or “At least I’m doing something to reduce our carbon footprint.”  

There were several people appalled at the concept and posted their comments on the post.  Here are some of the answers given by the page administrator:

“An unwanted pregnancy does generate waste. Is this a difficult concept for you sweetheart?”

“It's not murder; it's more like having your appendix removed, that is if your appendix had the potential to destroy your body for 40 weeks and then ruin all your future plans.”

“Fetuses are not human. They are not sentient. They are parasites on a woman's body and if a woman wants them removed they are participating in a beautiful act of liberation.”

More examples of how people are led into Satan’s lair.  The concept of choice is used as justification for taking a life so why not saving the environment?  This is the ultimate dehumanization of our most vulnerable.  

We need to do all we can to stop the misleading rhetoric of this group and others that promote abortion by countering their claims with the truth of what abortion is and does.  It takes the life of a child and damages the heart and soul of those involved in the decision.  They need to understand life is precious from the very beginning and nothing, absolutely nothing, justifies destroying it or using it as material for satire or laughs.  We also need to offer them up in prayer for a conversion of heart and mind, just as we are doing for those involved in Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities.  

Planting a tree will not take away the guilt, pain, shame and remorse of aborting a child.
  That can only be obtained through healing and the infinite love and mercy of God.
