PS: The version of eugenics supported by the founder of Planned Parenthood wasn't the same as the form of eugenics supported by the Nazis.
As part of her efforts to promote birth control, Sanger found common cause with proponents of eugenics, believing that they both sought to "assist the race toward the elimination of the unfit." Sanger was a proponent of negative eugenics, which aims to improve human hereditary traits through social intervention by reducing the reproduction of those who were considered unfit. In “The Morality of Birth Control,” a 1921 speech, she divided society into three groups: the educated and informed class that regulated the size of their families, the intelligent and responsible who desired to control their families however did not have the means or the knowledge and the irresponsible and reckless people whose religious scruples "prevent their exercising control over their numbers.” Sanger concludes “there is no doubt in the minds of all thinking people that the procreation of this group should be stopped.” Sanger's eugenic policies included an exclusionary immigration policy, free access to birth control methods and full family planning autonomy for the able-minded, and compulsory segregation or sterilization for the "profoundly retarded". In her book The Pivot of Civilization, she advocated coercion to prevent the "undeniably feeble-minded" from procreating. Although Sanger supported negative eugenics, she asserted that eugenics alone was not sufficient, and that birth control was essential to achieve her goals.

One side will say, "Yay! Abortions!"
The other side will say, "Ew! Murder!"
And nothing will ever be decided.
For the record, "Ew. Murder."

It's a moral issue.
Once you take the stance that an unborn child is a human being, morally, how could you call for its death?
So to protect themselves, the pro-death crowd refuses to accept the fact that an unborn human child is human.
They call it a "clump of cells" and distance themselves from it.
If that doesn't work, then they say that they cannot debate it because they aren't a woman. But that fails, because they'll always debate the military (without serving a single day) and they'll debate gay marriage (without being gay).

Considering that premature babies born at 20 weeks have survived, and we typically allow abortion until 24-26 weeks, the argument that the unborn baby isn't "viable" is absolute bull****.
The fact that the baby is literally torn apart, limb from limb, is absolutely disgusting to me. I do not understand how someone can be for abortion but against war or the death penalty.
“We have probably 100-200 pages of Planned Parenthood body parts purchases, internal documents about the practice,” he added.
Several of those documents have already been posted to the group’s website. For example, one order for the liver and thymus of a 16-week-old unborn baby was sent to Colorado State University’s pathology department:
PP_order1Separate orders from other facilities including UCLA, University of Massachusetts, Harvard University, Temple University, Yale University, Stanford University and The Rockefeller University were made for brains, calvarium (skulls), livers, thymuses, skin, kidneys, pancreases and inferior vena cava (a large vein that carries blood to the heart).
StemExpress, which is run by Planned Parenthood abortion doctor Ronald Berman, offers its procurement technicians bonuses based on the baby parts they harvest, according to the Center for Medical Progress. Larger bonuses are offered for more valuable body parts, classified as “Category A” parts, while smaller bonuses are given for “Category C” parts. (A list of those parts and their categories is available at the bottom of this report.)
Deleiden said more compelling video will soon emerge.

This is a Procurement Log of baby parts harvested from Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s flagship abortion clinic in San Jose, CA, on January 10, 2013. A total of 9 specimens were harvested from 8 different fetuses by StemExpress. At the time, StemExpress paid Planned Parenthood $50/specimen, so this one day of procurement at one clinic yielded $450 for Planned Parenthood Mar Monte. StemExpress also harvests from PPMM clinics in Sacramento, Fresno, and Stockton, and so a similar yield at those clinics just one day per week means at least $1800/week, $7200/month, and $86,400/year for this Planned Parenthood affiliate.
