This week we found out that Planned Parenthood has been harvesting aborted baby body parts for years.
Here is a likely Progressive argument for harvesting baby parts:
Young babies, still in utero, are among the most medically miraculous of all God’s creations. Small, packed with new tissue, stem cells, and developing organs, the fetus is a cornucopia of remedies for many maladies and a treasure trove for researchers. Given the millions of unplanned pregnancies each year, and the deep need for such truly “human resources” to cure the sickest among us, a simple solution becomes obvious.
Paying for the bodies and cell tissue of these unwanted babies will solve many of the problems plaguing our society.
First -for poor mothers facing unplanned pregnancies it will have a doubly beneficial economic impact, providing the mother with income for supplying the raw materials and saving the mother money from having to give the child expensive child care, which as we all know is a burden on the poor in this country.
Second – for those waiting for medical breakthroughs and the tissues only such fetuses can provide, the increase in the supply of such materials will kick-start a revolution which will save thousands if not millions of lives.
Third – the aborted fetus will, when viewed holistically, be a beneficiary of the procedure, as he will have been spared growing up in such an unequal world, likely in poverty, and unwanted.
And Fourth, and perhaps most surprising beneficiary is the very the purse of the people! It’s not unreasonable to think that the existence of a market for fetal samples will encourage a whole new group of women to become professional (breeders), hoping for at least one child, but perhaps being blessed with twins, triplets or even quadruplets. These will be the new mass producers of the fetal material which will drive the industry. Their earnings will be taxable, and thus the country will benefit from a lowering of the deficit, as the treasury receives a new inflow and a reduction in unemployment.
Such a simple mechanism is plainly reasonable given the current state of affairs. I urge any thinking man to consider it, and beg and detractors to find fault. As a single man, I have no benefit to gain, except perhaps the admiration of my peers for proposing such a comprehensive solution to a problem in our community.
