The Silence of the Lapdogs...

The Silence of the Lapdogs...  The mainstream media, with only rare exception, has been completely silent on the recent revelations about Planned Parenthood's baby parts business.  Mark Steyn notes this:
When kids are slaughtered in a Connecticut schoolhouse or churchgoers are shot down in Charleston, the media jump straight on the public policy implications: gun control, Confederate flags at state buildings... But when baby parts are sold by an organization that receives half-a-billion in taxpayer funds, there are no public policy questions at all, and it is necessary to look away. Because the realities of abortion have to be crushed and smothered by the slick, blurry evasions of "a woman's right to choose".
Do read the whole thing.

Last night, tossing and turning while trying to sleep, my brain wandered to this story.  Most especially, I started thinking about what Planned Parenthood's “business” says about American society.  The next thought was “Is this really something we want to preserve?”

Good question.

I don't have a good answer, yet...
