The anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress claims that the Planned Parenthood foundation violated the law by selling fetal tissue to medical researchers.

    ““These outrageous claims are flat-out untrue, but that doesn’t matter to politicians with a longstanding political agenda to ban abortion and defund Planned Parenthood,” Ferrero said.”

    I could think of no better summary for this whole thing. Its telling that the politicians getting involved are:
    1. Anti-Abortion
    2. Known for pandering to religious conservatives
    3. Known for saying rather dim bulb things in service of #2
    4. Have shown zero interest in medical science/ethics in any capacity before.

    Its pretty well established that the outrage is over editing to the video. It does not depict body part selling in its fuller version. This the first hoax video done to defame planned parenthood, nor will it be the last. .

    Planned Parenthood’s denial seems to have been written by Bill Cosby.

    Just as God Almighty has exposed the filth that infested the Catholic Church, and exposed the horrors that were occurring to teenage boys by certain “bishops and priests,” so is this evil industry known as Planned Parenthood, having its mask ripped off by the King of the Universe, so to see the jackals behind their treacherous crimes. Words cannot describe the pathetic utterances stated by one of their esteemed “doctors,” who goes by the name of Nucatola. She states the brutal actions that will take place to the poor babies being aborted with the emotion of a shark attacking its prey, with heartless indifference. I am hopeful that our Lord will continue to expose the evils of our Leftist society so that we can truly see the despicable truth behind the filth that many have come to trust, having assumed that they are honorable and good.

    Larry,

    I’m against burglary. Does that mean if I see someone breaking into my neighbors house at 2:00am and report that as a crime that I’m just furthering my agenda?

    Science has utterly ended the debate about personhood. It is the rabid, fanatics of abortion that refuse to see the writing on the wall and on the white paper that a “person” is just as much them at conception PER DNA, as they are when they find a body part that leads to a murderer.

    Planner Parenthood has to be suspect in ANY issue dealing with abortion because abortions are part of their mission. YOU, have to be suspect, because you are a progressive ideologue that will not give any ground to the fact that maybe you are on the heinous side.

    When you have made 30 deliberately false calls in the last week, people will have very good reason not take your claims too seriously. 🙂
