Planned Parenthood and Pontius Pilate
The first Station of the Cross, “Jesus is condemned to death”, recalls one of Western history’s most iconic acts of antinomianism, Pontius Pilate washing his hands of Jesus’ blood (Matthew 27: 24). Pilate’s cowardly and contemptuous abandonment of an innocent man to death stands—and will stand till the end of time—as a warning about how easily officers of the State can betray their duty to uphold fundamental justice. Well, the specter of Pontius Pilate walks again, this time, though law enforcement offices with jurisdiction over Planned Parenthood abortion clinics.
The first appalling videos of Planned Parenthood personnel marketing dead baby parts to fund their lust for Lamborghinis embarrassed some abortion supporters into silence and provoked others into stammering, incoherent defenses of PP’s naked barbarity. At present, only abortion ideologues like Obama and Clinton, people who long ago hardened their hearts against truth, still stand with Planned Parenthood. But the most recent PP videos indicate that a new low has been reached and that a line of unquestionable illegality has been crossed. We are talking now about credible audio-visual evidence that statutorily defined, common law recognized cases of murder have been committed in PP “abortion” clinics.
Yes, the ghost of Pontius Pilate hovers over Planned Parenthood. The only question is whether that ghoul will be honored by law enforcement officials who wash their hands of responsibility for the innocent being handed over to a tortuous death, or, will it be repudiated by men and women who know that fundamental laws against murder should be enforced.
That question is not hypothetical.
