“I lied through my teeth”

By Tom Quiner


The year was 1995.

The partial-birth abortion debate raged.  The Executive Director of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers went on ABC’s Nightline.  Ron Fitzsimmons said partial birth abortion, the procedure where the fetus’ skull is crushed and its brains suctioned, was only performed in situations to save the mother’s life.  He said it was rare.

Sixteen months later, he admitted he “he lied through his teeth.”

The willingness for a spokesman for an industry, in this case  the abortion industy, to lie through his teeth on such a major issue is difficult to shake.

That leads me to the September 5th editorial by The Des Moines Register.  Here is what they said:

“… Planned Parenthood (PP) of the Heartland has used telemedicine as it was intended: to expand access to legal health services in rural Iowa. The challenge of that smart approach should prompt state leaders to update laws and policies – to give Iowans increased access to health care, including abortion, through the use of technology.”

Notice what the Register is saying here.  The law needs to be updated.  In other words, they are acknowledging in a rather sneaky way that PP is violating abortion laws on the books, laws that state a physician needs to be present to terminate the human life in the womb.

The Register goes on to say:

“Now it’s up to Iowa leaders to:

– Re-evaluate outdated abortion laws in this state.

The law requiring physicians to perform abortions made sense when all abortions were surgical procedures. But that requirement is called into question now that women are increasingly choosing to take a drug….

Iowa should take a step forward in fostering 21st century medicine – including using it to give women access to a legal medical procedure.”

The Register is saying that Planned Parenthood isn’t wrong in breaking the law. Rather, it is the law that is wrong.  They label their Pro-Life critics as anti-choice.  I guess that makes The Register and PP anti-law.

Why is the Register so supportive of the illegal Tele-Med abortion scheme?  Because they believe PP when they say 1500 hundred women who have had the illegal abortions over the past two years haven’t had any complications.  Not even one.

The PP Federation states, regarding RU-486:

“Complete abortion will occur in 96–97 percent of women who choose mifepristone. In the small percentage of cases that medication abortion fails, other abortion procedures are required to end the pregnancies.”

Here’s what the problem will be in the 3 to 4 percent of the abortions that go bad, according to the Planned Parenthood Federation:

  • an allergic reaction to either of the pills
  • incomplete abortion – part of the pregnancy [baby] is left inside the uterus
  • infection
  • undetected ectopic pregnancy
  • very heavy bleeding
  • Out of 1500 of the illegal telemed abortions using the RU-486 abortion pill, 45 to 60 of them should have experienced complications according to their own publicly stated studies.  And yet, inexplicably, these 1500 telemed abortions came off without a hitch.

    Do you buy it?  The Register does.

    In light of a past paucity of veracity in this industry, I’m skeptical.  But even if we have another situation of the abortion industry lying through their teeth about the “safety” of this procedure, it’s nonetheless all a lie.  A baby dies in the womb.  There’s nothing safe about that.

    Telemed abortion will kill more Iowans.  PP has a problem: they’re having trouble finding doctors willing to kill babies in the womb.  The video at the top of this article eloquently explains why.

    An impersonal telemed abortion is an easier way to end a human life.  It’s illegal. It’s lucrative for PP.  No one is stopping it.  The Register applauds it.

    Look at the video above.  Are you okay with killing it?
