New abortion scandal

You may have read about a horrible case in Philadelphia in which an abortionist is accused of multiple counts of murder. Authorities say late-term babies were fully delivered at the abortionist's "clinic," then their spines were deliberately severed with scissors, killing them.

Several other employees at the facility -- which authorities described as a "house of horrors" -- have also been charged with murder.

And now, in a separate case, an undercover video has been released showing a worker at a New Jersey Planned Parenthood clinic offering "advice" to a man and woman who were posing as traffickers of underage girls.

This is how The New York Times reported on the video at the Planned Parenthood clinic: "The man says he is involved in sex work and wants to bring girls, some only 14 or 15 and illegal immigrants, for medical exams. The [clinic] manager says that 14-year-old girls should not admit their ages, because it triggers extra reporting requirements. 'For the most part, we want as little information as possible,' she says. Asked if the girls can obtain abortions, the manager replies that if they are under 15, they should go to another clinic where 'their protocols are not as strict as ours.'"

Of course, the clinic worker's response should not have been to "advise" the man and woman about anything! There should have been an immediate report to police about the alleged trafficking and abuse of children.

Planned Parenthood tries to present itself to the public as "respectable" and "mainstream," and it claims the behavior by the clinic worker was "isolated." But the employee in question was a manager at the clinic!

It is tragic that millions of babies have been killed purposely in our country since the Supreme Court's horrible Roe v. Wade ruling in 1973. At a minimum, Congress should cut off the tens of millions of dollars in federal tax money that Planned Parenthood gets yearly.

Why should U.S. taxpayers have to help finance any organization that provides "services" that so many people consider reprehensible?
