WASHINGTON,DC (Catholic Online) - On the day that a Judge named Minehart threw out three of the seven murder charges against the abortionist Kermit Gosnell who is on trial in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, came news that President Barack Obama will be the keynote speaker at a Gala event on Thursday night in Washington, DC. The event is called "The Time for Care" and it will raise money for the activities of Planned Parenthood.Cecille Richards, the President of Planned Parenthood flashed her smile and told the Press:

"President Obama has done more than any president in history for women's health and rights. He understands that access to birth control and preventive health care are economic issues for women and their families.  We fought alongside him to ensure that women's health access was expanded in the landmark Affordable Care Act, and now we have to fight hard to ensure that the full promise of health care reform is realized for millions of women.  We are honored to have President Obama join us at our 'Time for Care' Gala at this pivotal moment for women's health." 

Of course, the propaganda code words are intentionally designed to conceal the truth. Planned Parenthood is the number one provider of abortions in the United States of America. The President of the United States is volunteering to be their number one fundraiser. What Kermit Gosnell did in his house of horrors in Philadelphia is no different than what is done in every abortion in a Planned Parenthood facility. The only difference is that the evil is hidden from view.

Horribly, the same sonogram technology now used for baby's first pictures, which we share with one another and show on television commercials, is often used to guide the instruments of execution or the injection of the chemical weapons in Planned Parenthood facilities. These are the very facilities which the President of the United States will raise money for on Thursday evening. 

The same deadly snipping using surgical scissors which Gosnell performed on children outside of the womb is done within the womb at Planned Parenthood facilities. The same body parts found in the House of Horrors in Philadelphia are suctioned and scraped out of the wombs of women who have been lied to by Planned Parenthood. The events in West Philadelphia - and this speech by the President on Thursday evening - both call us to examine who we are becoming as a Nation.

We are killing our children based upon the sole criteria of convenience and whether they are wanted. Usually, the disposal of their little bodies is hidden from our eyes. We do not want to see what an abortion really looks like. When people show graphic images of the remains of a child killed by abortion, they are called extremists. Yet the trial of Kermit Gosnell removes the veil for all to see the truth. 

Planned Parenthood calls itself a Health Care Provider and includes the taking of the lives of innocent children in the womb as a service under what they euphemistically call reproductive services. There is nothing reproductive about abortion. The taking of innocent human life is not health care. It is also not a service to the child, the mother, the father or society. The President of the United States should not be raising money for them.  Planned Parenthood must be defunded.

Planned Parenthood charges women, many of whom have been deceived and are themselves the second victims, for killing their own children. The abortionists who carry out the evil act use surgical strikes, brutal suction or what they euphemistically now call a medication abortion (using chemical weapons) to cause these deaths of children. They are often paid for the evil act with our tax dollars. This Gala will raise funds to add to the treasury.

Every procured abortion is the intentional taking of innocent human life in the first home of the whole human race. Every person alive today began their human life in that sanctuary of life, the womb. No one with any integrity or genuine moral sensibility any longer claims that the child in the womb, whom we now surgically operate and see clearly in 4D images, is not a human being.

The argument made to try and justify this killing of our youngest neighbors is the perverse idea that freedom somehow gives a new right to the one with more power to hire an abortionist to reach inside the sanctuary of the womb and take the life of a vulnerable and innocent child. Yet, every procured abortion denies the fundamental, inalienable Human Right to Life of an innocent child.

There is no moral distinction between what Planned Parenthood does and the actions of Kermit Gosnell which are now on trial in Philadelphia. They both cause the intentional killing of a child. The time thresholds of viability set forth under the insane framework forced upon us by the Supreme Court's Roe and Doe decisions are regularly pushed back. Science has confirmed what our consciences have known all along, every procured abortion kills a child, a neighbor, a son or a daughter.

The arguments that dependency and development make us less human are themselves inhuman. They were the same arguments used in such notoriously evil defenses of the holocaust such as the 1920 book entitled "Permitting the Destruction of Life Unworthy of Life" written by German Lawyer Karl Binding and German Doctor Alfred Hoche. It laid the groundwork for the Nazi T4 euthanasia program which in turn became a defense for the Holocaust.

The truth is we are all dependent upon others throughout our life and we are always developing throughout our life. We owe an obligation in solidarity to one another. Most especially, we owe an obligation in solidarity to those who have no voice but our own. We must protect them against the deadly violence committed against them in every procured abortion. Planned Parenthood is routinely engaged in taking the lives of innocent children in the womb using our tax dollars. Now, the President of the United States will be their main speaker on Thursday evening to raise even more money for their treasury.

Our civil and criminal law has rejected the Natural Law Right to Life. Instead of protecting children it protects the perpetrators of intentional homicides committed against our youngest neighbors through abortion. Until the positive law is changed to reflect the truth, our tax dollars must not be used to fund the evil. We must do what we can in every State in the United States to defund Planned Parenthood. We must also speak out against the President of the United States of America speaking at the Planned Parenthood National Gala in Washington, DC on Thursday and raising money for Planned Parenthood. Money is fungible. It will be used to further evil. The President should not participate.
