The videos are devastating to the central evasion of American abortion advocates: Why, they’re not like the rubes; they know the difference between a human being – and a zygote, “a clump of cells”, or “a pile of goop”, in the words of the sitcom actor Lucas Neff. Of course, if the kid were merely a zygote, a clump of cells or a pile of goop, you would not be able to operate a lucrative business selling the brain, lungs, liver, heart, etc, because a zygote, clump of cells or pile of goop does not have any of those things. In that sense, “Dr” Nucatola’s breezy laundry list of what she’s able to cannibalize for parts gets to the heart of the lie American abortionists tell.
The only pile of goop in this debate is Lucas Neff, a very characteristic exemplar of contemporary depravity and stupidity. The defense of Planned Parenthood in light of what has been revealed is almost as disturbing as the mound of body parts – because a moral vacuum can never be contained to the one little corner of life you don’t mind it in; it always expands.
