After getting caught on video haggling over prices of aborted baby parts, Planned Parenthood has gone on full-throttle damage control. The organization has even sent out a letter warning media not to air the videos, claiming that the group (Center for Medical Progress, CMP) that released the videos obtained them “through deceit and unlawful behavior, including possible violations of state recording laws, federal tax laws and falsified state identification. Planned Parenthood has also accused CMP of concocting wildly false stories through selective editing.
In other words, the videos make them look like the infanticidal, barbaric butchers that they are, and they don’t want the bad publicity.
Here’s the entire letter Planned Parenthood sent to North Dakota Health and Political Reporters and Producers:
“The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is an extreme activist organization whose sole mission is to prevent women from accessing health care and to destroy Planned Parenthood. The board members of this group believe that abortion is “genocide,” and employ people who went to jail for attempting to bomb a women’s health clinic. They are also connected with the man who murdered abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.
CMP has used footage obtained through deceit and unlawful behavior, including possible violations of state recording laws, federal tax laws and falsified state identification. Then, they concoct wildly false stories through selective editing. We expect this video will be no different in that regard; however, footage yet to come is expected to represent an extreme violation of patient privacy by including footage of post-abortion fetal tissue neither patients nor health care professionals authorized be filmed.
When your network decides whether to consider this story newsworthy, or whether to use any of this footage at all, we urge you to keep this in mind: The extremists who entered Planned Parenthood labs under false pretenses violated research protocol, and, worse, violated the privacy of patients involved. Those patients’ privacy should not be further violated by having this footage shared by the media.
The storage and examination processes that CMP used to get this footage are medically necessary. It is necessary medical professionals ensure an abortion is complete so that patients do not get an infection. When tissue is donated for medical research, these steps are also necessary for the donations to be completed. It is also medically necessary that researchers evaluate the laboratory procedures of a medical provider for safety standards and best practices.
Some of the conversations and protocols that occur in medical settings and among professional peers can sound jarring when taken out of context. While this can be difficult to hear or watch, it should not be used as an excuse to defund Planned Parenthood.
CMP gained access to Planned Parenthood facilities under false pretenses and filmed without securing approval from the Planned Parenthood staff being filmed or the patients whose privacy is compromised by this secret videotaping. The material should not be aired.”
Center for Medical Progress Expected to Violate Patient Privacy.
Sorry, Planned Parenthood. It just doesn’t work that way. You don’t get to abort unborn babies, sell their organs like you are selling parts to a Buick, get caught, and then try censor the TRUTH.
And you actually have the nerve to call CMP an “extremist” group? Have you even listened to yourselves?
You also claim that CMP violated patient privacy. You may actually have a point there—because there once was a patient present in these videos, that little tiny human being you butchered to pay for your Lamborghinis.
You make me physically sick.
Just for that, I am reposting the video you don’t want people to see:
