NY Times Very Upset Over Planned Parenthood Sting

Not once does the Editorial Board profess anything approaching repugnance to the selling of aborted baby parts

The Campaign of Deception Against Planned Parenthood

A hidden-camera video released last week purported to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells tissue from aborted fetuses. It shows nothing of the sort. But it is the latest in a series of unrelenting attacks on Planned Parenthood, which offers health care services to millions of people every year. The politicians howling to defund Planned Parenthood care nothing about the truth here, being perfectly willing to undermine women’s reproductive rights any way they can.

The nine-minute video clip released by the Center for Medical Progress, an outfit apparently created in 2013, invites viewers to “Hold Planned Parenthood accountable for their illegal sale of baby parts.” In it, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director of medical services, is seen discussing the collection of fetal tissue in a lunch meeting with two people posing as potential tissue buyers. A second video, released on Tuesday, shows another Planned Parenthood staff member discussing fetal tissue.

Interestingly, the EB isn’t howling about PP selling baby parts. Nor are they howling after we learned that PP employees wanted to sell baby parts to buy a Lamborghini.

Of course, the rest of the editorial is all about protecting PP, and attacking the group that shot the videos. There is no concern that PP is illegally selling aborted baby parts. No outrage. Heck, they aren’t even upset that PP was using ultrasound to make the abortion cleaner to get the parts. Aren’t abortion on demand proponents against ultrasound for abortion?

Researchers use fetal tissue to study and develop treatments for diseases and conditions like H.I.V., hepatitis, congenital heart defects, retinal degeneration and Parkinson’s. Last year, the National Institutes of Health gave $76 million in grants for fetal tissue research. Planned Parenthood is certainly not the only collector of fetal tissue — clinics associated with universities also supply tissue for research.

So far, embryonic stem cell research has provided no viable cures nor medications. Unless you deem fixing a medical issue then causing big tumors “progress”.

The Center for Medical Progress video campaign is a dishonest attempt to make legal, voluntary and potentially lifesaving tissue donations appear nefarious and illegal. Lawmakers responding by promoting their own anti-choice agenda are rewarding deception and putting women’s health and their constitutionally protected rights at risk.

It’s dishonest to promote abortion as a means to gain tissue for failed research as a means to continue the abortion mills. If these were puppies or baby seals, the NYTEB would be freaking out in apoplectic outrage. And this same EB seems to have a big problem when it comes to school choice, especially vouchers, and the choice to own a gun.

Would this same NYTEB, along with all the leftist supporters of unfettered abortion on demand, have a problem with an open investigation of Planned Parenthood in light of these videos? I’m suspecting that the answer would be “no”.
