A hidden-camera video released last week purported to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells tissue from aborted fetuses. It shows nothing of the sort. [That assertion has me wondering what the editors of the Times smoke before they write their editorials!] But it is the latest in a series of unrelenting attacks on Planned Parenthood, which offers health care services to millions of people every year. The politicians howling to defund Planned Parenthood care nothing about the truth here, being perfectly willing to undermine women’s reproductive rights any way they can.
That is not what you learned when you learned Christ. I am assuming, of course, that he has been preached and taught to you in accord with the truth that is in Jesus: namely that you must lay aside your former way of life … and acquire a fresh, spiritual way of thinking. You must put on that new man created in God’s image, whose justice and holiness are born of truth. (New American Bible, 1971 edition)
