I don't have a lot to say today. Frankly, I haven't watched all of the videos going around about Planned Parenthood right now. I'm not sure that I can. I realized that I feel completely sick about what is going on, but I am also sick of myself, because I'm sitting on the sidelines in horror, but I'm not doing anything. Not one thing.
I did watch a video (edited) by someone that was speaking in favor of Planned Parenthood. It was interesting in the double speak that has to happen. She essentially said that it wasn't happening, but then she said it was done with consent (certainly not the babies' consent!) and better to do research than just throw the babies in the garbage. I don't understand the need to say that someone is lying because it's not happening, but also justify what's happening. Not a lot of logical consistency there.
Anyway, I know that's vague and random, but that's what I do. I pick apart someone else rather than speaking up myself. I guess all I have to say is that this is evil. It seems like there is a madness going on all around, and the logical consequences of our sins as nation are coming to light. You can't argue that babies are only a blob of tissue and then be surprised or object if that child is then used for profit and research. We also can't dehumanize the most vulnerable among us without becoming less human ourselves. I don't know if I'll find anything that I can actually do in all of this, but I will be going to Mass tomorrow.
