Innocent? Planned Parenthood Tries to Silence Video-Makers With Gag Order...
Planned Parenthood is in trouble. So much trouble that Hillary Clinton is turning on them, and she wouldn't be... unless she saw some really expensive and thorough internal poll numbers showing that Planned Parenthood is in trouble. Having the usual actors lying on their behalf doesn't seem to be working.
It would appear that harvesting organs doesn't sit well with the American people. It's moved beyond the "my body my choice" or "no uterus, no opinion" soundbites.
So what does Planned Parenthood do? Go to the courts and have them silence their opponents!
After releasing three videos that have caused great controversy for Planned Parenthood, the Center for Medical Progress has been slapped with a restraining order that temporarily prevents them from releasing any more. The Los Angeles Superior Court handed down the order on Tuesday, saying that no video can be shown depicting the three officials shown discussing prices in the second video.
The Center for Medical Progress calls this a “meritless litigation” to cover up an “illegal baby parts trade..." mainly because... this is a meritless litigation to cover up an illegal body parts trade.
They are not succeeding—their initial petition was rejected by the court, and their second petition was eviscerated to a narrow and contingent order about an alleged recording pending CMP’s opportunity to respond. The Center for Medical Progress follows all applicable laws in the course of our investigative journalism work and will contest all attempts from Planned Parenthood and their allies to silence our First Amendment rights and suppress investigative journalism.
Is it just me, or is Planned Parenthood doing the exact opposite of what an innocent party would do here? If they believe that they've done nothing wrong, wouldn't they try to demand the full release of all unedited videos as soon as possible? Why is it that when leftists try to prove their innocence, they do so by operating in the shadows?
Planned Parenthood, you've got nothing to hide! Demand sunlight on these practices for all to see. That's how you'd prove your 'innocence'.
You'll get your day in court, don't worry. More videos are coming. :)
