More on those abortion videos . . .
Writing for the Daily Beast (August 10, 2015), Ruben Navarrette Jr. admits, "I Don't Know if I'm Pro-Choice After Planned Parenthood Videos," and he is particularly disturbed by the fifth video:
Most recently, in Video #5, Melissa Farrell, director of research at Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Texas, talks cavalierly about the cost of extracting "intact fetal cadavers." It is, Farrell says coldly, "all just a matter of line items."No one wants to discuss this, but here we are, discussing it. I've often encountered the argument that abortion should be a woman's right even up to the moment before birth. After a successful birth, however, a living fetus is not only declared a baby, but, presumably, is also granted the right to life. Wouldn't that presumption likewise apply to aborted, "intact fetuses" taken from the womb alive?
This raises the possibility that no one wants to discuss - that some of the aborted fetuses exited the womb alive and they were either killed or left to die, their "cadavers" intact.
Note that I'm focusing upon a narrow point: Does an aborted but intact, living fetus have the right to life?
