UPDATE 8/4/15: A second baby was shown in another undercover video from August 4. This baby – and all babies who are unjustly aborted each and every day – deserve dignity. Call them Emmett, for they may very well be the catalysts to end abortion in our nation, just like Emmett Till. “..and another boy!” ~ Planned Parenthood medical assistant The little boy in the most recent undercover Planned Parenthood videos from the Center for Medical Progress has been referred to as “Eleven Six”, meaning that he was aborted at 11 weeks 6 days gestation. His tiny body parts are easily identifiable in the horrific videos as they are sorted in order to be sold. This baby deserves a name, deserves dignity that is rightly afforded him as a member of the human race – dignity that was ripped from him as he died at the hands Planned Parenthood. Dignity as they took from him as they referred to his body as “war torn.” His name should be Emmett, after the boy of the same name who became the catalyst for the 1950s and 60s Civil Rights Movement. Emmett Till was a 14-year-old black boy from Chicago who dared to speak to a white woman when he was visiting relatives in Mississippi. He was subsequently beaten with one eye gouged out, and then shot through the head before being tethered to a heavy gin and thrown in the river. His body was recovered three days later and returned to his mother in Chicago. His mother, Mamie Till Bradley, wanted to have an open casket at Emmett’s funeral as to show the world what her son suffered simply because of his skin color. His rights – and his life – were unjustly ripped away from him. And his killers were acquitted yet they admitted to their deed in an interview after the trial and received significant pushback in the community – they were unable to get loans and people refused to work for them. But Emmett’s murder resonated on a national scale and he inspired the Civil Rights movement. Rosa Parks even said she was inspired by the boy: “I thought of Emmett Till and I just couldn’t go back.” This baby boy in the Center for Medical Progress is the Emmett Till of the pro-life movement. We cannot let his – and the millions and millions of other babes – death be in vain. May others who see these videos and see the gruesome dissection of baby Emmett’s body stop supporting Planned Parenthood, demand the government stop funding Planned Parenthood, tell their friends and family about Planned Parenthood’s chopping up of babies and selling their body parts. Pro-lifers have been holding up photos in public of aborted babies like Baby Emmett for decades. But this time, it’s not pro-lifers holding those pictures, it’s the Planned Parenthood abortionists themselves.]]>
Post by Emily Stumpo, Great Lakes Regional Coordinator. On Good Friday, members of Knights for Life at Marian University, located in downtown Indianapolis, were surprised to receive news that a faculty member in the Department of Psychology had emailed the entire list of faculty department chairs, staff and administrators to lambaste the pro-life event. The faculty member characterized the event as intending to mislead people making a pro-life event part of sexual assault awareness month. His position was that it was insensitive to survivors of sexual assault to exclusively talk about those survivors who became pregnant after their assault and that the group shouldn’t be holding the event, or at least should vastly change its content.
