The culture of death bares its teeth: Planned Parenthood president says life begins at delivery
LifeSiteNews ^ | 3/5/14 | Albert Mohler

Cecile Richards is no stranger to controversy. As the president of Planned Parenthood she leads one of the central institutions of the Culture of Death — an organization that was born in the dark vision of Margaret Sanger and now exists as the nation’s most visible promoter and provider of abortion. Cecile Richards has been an ardent defender of a woman’s “right” to abort her baby at any time for any reason. She also believes that women should be able to abort their babies for free, with taxpayers footing the bill.

-snip-

Then she dropped the bombshell:

“For me, I’m the mother of three children. For me, life began when I delivered them. They’ve been probably the most important thing in my life ever since. But that was my own personal decision.”

So life begins at delivery. Until then, no life, no dignity, no sanctity at all. This defies any moral sense, but it also defies modern biology. Cecile Richards did not try to argue the now infamous trimester argument of Roe v. Wade or a point of viability or any other argument about fetal development. As her comment makes clear, in her worldview the fetus doesn’t matter at all.

How convenient.. In the case of partial birth abortions, though, the label of life will be delayed another 10 minutes..

And then others say it is okay to murder a child up to a year old.

So she is criticizing Obama for voting against the bill that would have protected babies born alive during an attempted abortion?

They are totally wrong. What do they say about ultra sound and the pictures of a healthy baby moving in the womb?

God is in control, and God is pro-life.

The Alabama Legislature just passed a law stating that life begins at the moment a fetal heartbeat can be detected, about 6 weeks into the pregnancy. At that point it is illegal to abort unless it is life threatening, even if the pregnancy was the result of rape or incest.
God Bless Alabama. It is a beginning.

ok..

Sure it does. Tell me, did she get prenatal care during her pregnancies? Did she watch what she ate and otherwise put into her body to care for and nourish that nonliving growth in her womb?
Did that nonliving growth receive a name before it began to “live”?
I’ll bet the answer to those questions is “yes”. I’ll bet she even referred to those growths as “the baby”.

It is. That law will also be struck down as unconstitutional in a nanosecond by some liberal appointed judge.
Logically life begins at conception. Dead cells don’t divide.

Really? So why then must one KILL something that isn`t alive? Non living things do not suddenly come to life. If its not alive how does abortion prevent its continued life? Humans gestate humans. Phlegm does not have a heartbeat or a face. And if its not alive in utero it doesn`t have to be KILLED.

If she went through all that #8 pointed out and still has that attitude she must consider the unborn child as a ‘bother’ or ‘handle it like it was a mole or any other growth’.

With the attitude of the article then a lot of women (and men) should have ALL records of illegal activity done while she was pregnant wiped from the slate.

How could she be endangering the ‘life of the child’ by drinking or smoking when there was NOTHING to be endangered?

How about the ‘murder cases’ that would be thrown out because the victim was pregnant when murdered and the doer was charged and convicted of 2 counts?

We could take up volumes of cyber space of what ifs but.....

A woman’s “right” to murder.
Murder Inc. always delivers.

Ignore all the life signs in the womb like heart beat, brain activities, etc and define the beginng of life by the passage thru a magic portal.

And we Christians are the science deniers...

Sorry, Cecile, but science contradicts you. Solving the problem by changing the definition isn’t solving it at all.
