Like Jihadists, Planned Parenthood Uses Women and Children as Human Shields
As we were erecting our Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) abortion photos on the campus of UC Berkeley in October, a professor raged up to our Director and hissed “Shame on you for making women feel guilty about their abortions.” When our trucks drove through State College, Pennsylvania, in 2004 The Daily Collegian ran a story quoting Planned Parenthood’s argument that we shouldn’t show pictures of what their abortion clinics do to unborn children because it upsets born children. “Paula Nossek, health center manager for Planned Parenthood … said she thought the group’s tactics were both ‘tasteless’ and ‘cowardly,’ and she questioned the authenticity of the images.” She added, “‘If they were decent human beings, they would be sick letting kids see it ….’” She isn’t sick killing these babies, but we should be sick showing them.
Planned Parenthood’s hiding behind women and children (as a means of stopping us from exposing the horror of their abortions) is conceptually similar to a common hostage-taking tactic employed by Islamist fighters. The BBC recently ran a story that described the use of civilians as human shields. The lead paragraph reads, “Gen. Mohiudin Ghori said his soldiers had seen Taliban fighters placing women and children on the roofs of buildings and firing from behind them.”
