For all their caterwauling about the Planned Parenthood videos, for all their complaints, few will actually watch them. They do not want to be disabused of their notion that PP is super awesome
(Breitbart) The hearing in the House subcommittee on health of the Committee on Energy and Commerce was to consider proposals to expand protections for unborn children whosurvive an abortion and also the federal ban on partial birth abortion.
Reps. Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Renee Elmers (R-NC) want the Congress to give states the right to withhold federal funding, especially Medicaid funding, if an abortion provider is even suspected to violating either the Infants Born Alive Protection Act or the Partial Birth Abortion Act.
Subcommittee chairman Rep. Joe Pitts (R-PA) opened the hearing by showing video of Holly O’Donnell, the StemExpress whistle-blower talking about how a Planned Parenthood staff member showed her starting a baby’s heart. Other footage shown by Pitts showed Planned Parenthood personnel talking about intact fetuses, leading some to believe the children were born alive.
In the committee hearing last week, witnesses said the Democrats refused even to look at them. This time some of them looked, others looked away and still others “panicked,” in the words of one observer. They huddled together and then tried to have sub-committee chairman Pitts stop them. He refused.
We shouldn’t be surprised in the least that Democrats spend most of the time attacking the videos (which they didn’t want to watch, and probably didn’t for the most part) and the group that took them. They claim there is no evidence PP did anything wrong, though they pretty much refuse to watch the videos to see the evidence.
One has to wonder why Democrats have such strong support of PP that they engage in these childish games. Obviously, abortion on demand is a main sacrament within their fascistic political cult. Is it that they cannot admit that people can do bad things within their favorite abortion providing operation? Or is it that they really like that PP provides abortions for Black women in so many black areas around the country? 78% of their clinics are in minority neighborhoods. PP founder Margaret Sanger was proud racist, loved eugenics, and though Blacks were a mongrel race, saying “Colored people are like human weeds and are to be exterminated.”
Is that why Democrats support PP to such an extreme? Are they simply showing their historical racism towards Blacks in a different manner?
