Letter to the Editor

Planned Parenthood

To the editor: “A woman came out of Planned Parenthood with a small cooler, like a lunch pail size, that said ‘Human Organs’ on it. She tossed it in her car ...”

This is the text I received from a volunteer who eyewitnessed this occurrence during our 40 Days for Life event.

I was the president of Right to Life-Interior Alaska, and so when members or volunteers have experiences relating to life issues, they often share them with me. When I saw and read this text, I felt like my heart was crushed with those babies. The thought of our precious little children made by God in his beautiful image being killed and their tiny organs being transported in parts and pieces to who knows where, there’s just no words for something this sad. Those kids should have been born and had a chance to play and grow and learn. What kind of people are we to allow this organization to continue killing our children! Those are our sweet Interior babies and people just go about their day like nothing’s even happening. Abby Johnson, former Planned Parenthood clinic director whose story is in the movie “Unplanned,” witnessed the abortion of a first trimester child and that baby tried to escape the machine and fought for his or her life. The abortionists doing the “procedure” told her “they always do that.”

David Daleiden went undercover to several Planned Parenthood events and meetings and revealed their baby body parts business they’ve been conducting with Stem Express. Planned Parenthood took David to court where his accusations and videos are being proved to all be true. But what also came out were that some of those babies were sold alive and their organs removed after birth. Here is the article: bit.ly/2BiEDCY.

We are responsible for allowing this organization to continue in our neighborhood. Funding for pregnancy planning and STD tests, etc. can all be redirected to any OB clinic instead, and the quality of care would be even better for women since they are licensed obstetricians. Women are not prisoners to Planned Parenthood, and our children should not be their victims ever again.
