On Planned Parenthood

Dear Friends,

I write to you today concerning a matter of urgent attention and action on the part of Christians everywhere.   Recently, private investigating organizations released four undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors and medical officials negotiating the sale of human body parts of aborted babies.   Also revealed is the practice of the barbaric and illegal procedure of partial birth abortions, before being completely removed from the womb.  Worse yet is the shocking denial of Planned Parenthood officials and the silence of the Administration and the Justice Department in perusing justice in this alleged criminal activity on the part of an organization which receives millions of American tax-payer dollars every year; your money.      The callous dealing, selling and securing of body parts even before the child is murdered in the womb by medical professionals who constantly violate the Hippocratic Oath to “do none harm” only adds to the horror and the outright disgusting dismissal of human life.    Planned Parenthood seemingly gets away with these illegal procedures only because they are protected by politicians, business interests and an enabling media that refuses to even run negative stories against this organization. 

The public outrage and political pressure to defund Planned Parenthood has begun to reach a critical level.  Now is the time for Pro-Life activists and faithful Christians and indeed every decent and civilized Americans everywhere, to pressure our elected officials to finally rid our nation of this plague.    Every human person no matter their political affiliation or their beliefs ought to experience horror, disgust and fury at what this supposed “health care provider” is doing to the most innocent and vulnerable of human life.    Today, I urge you to take part in the effort to restore justice and civility to our American nation.      Now is the time to reach out to the White House, to the members of Congress, to our Governor and the Texas Legislature and even our local political and community leaders to not only defund Planned Parenthood, but put them out of business once and for all.   

After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of communism in Eastern Europe, and its history was being documented,  a journalist interviewed Pope John Paul II and asked him if he could rightly be credited with bringing down communism in Europe.   His response, “communism was a rotten tree, I just helped others to shake it, it fell on its own corrupt roots”.    We are seeing the corruption of the legalization of abortion in the U.S. since 1973; it is rotten to its roots.    Let us all join in the effort of countless heroic women, men, and children who are leading the fight to “shake it to the ground”.   

I invite all of you to pray and do penance so this evil will be defeated.   Ask for the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the Patroness of the Unborn to help us to see the end of this long battle which is ever so near. 

Thank you for your courage, your prayers and your help to overcome in the struggle to protect the innocent child in the womb and defend the right of mothers to be mothers.   

Yours in the Lord,
Fr. Vásquez
