27 Jan Protecting the Guilty…Again?
More than 150 years ago, the good people who helped their fellow men in bondage escape slavery, would be prosecuted if caught. Around 70 years ago in Europe, the good people who helped Jews escape capture from the Nazi regime and almost certain death in concentration camps, would, if caught, be prosecuted and likely sent to a concentration camp themselves. The law in both these circumstances protected the oppressors and punished those who fought that oppression.
Today, a good man, David Daleiden, went undercover to film Planned Parenthood illegally selling the bodies of aborted babies. Like the good people before him, Daleiden did this to protect the most vulnerable in society. Unfortunately, like in days of old, the government is not going to protect the vulnerable. The government is going to exonerate the oppressor and slayer, while prosecuting the one exposing and trying to stop the oppressor. Today the unborn will continue to be legally killed and those killing them and selling their bodies will continue to be protected.
A grand jury in Harris County, Texas, tasked with investigating Planned Parenthood for illegally selling aborted body parts, instead indicted Daleiden while acquitting Planned parenthood. It might be unbelievable if history hadn’t already told the same tale. The grand jury actually charged Daleiden with one count of “tampering with government documents” and one count of attempting to purchase fetal tissue.
Apparently Planned Parenthood is innocent of selling baby parts to Daleiden, but Daleiden is guilty of buying baby parts from Planned Parenthood. Of course, slave owners were innocent of owning humans and those who helped them escape were guilty of theft. European citizens who helped Jews escape concentration camps were guilty, while those sending them to their deaths were innocent.
This is corruption at its peak. It is not hidden corruption. It is blatant. In history classes today those who helped slaves escape and those who hid the Jews in Europe during World War II are revered as heroes. Hopefully, in years to come, David Daleiden will be revered as the hero he is.
