Chuck Todd made the claim that parts of them were fake.
Ted Cruz ain’t got time for that…
Let me tell you what there is no controversy about, it is a federal crime – a felony with a 10-year prison term – to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit. That is a federal crime. These videos show senior Planned Parenthood officials laughing, sipping Chardonnay, and bargaining, and apparently selling the body parts of unborn children. Listen, even if you’re pro-choice, selling the body parts of unborn children as a commercial endeavor is a horrifying thing.
And it’s one of the sad indictments of the Obama administration. Nobody on Earth, you don’t think and nobody else thinks the Obama Justice Department would ever investigate Planned Parenthood because they are a political ally of this administration. I think we need a Justice Department that enforces the criminal laws, without regard to party or ideology, enforces the law for everybody.
Now, this is nothing new. Particularly for Chuck Todd. He and people like him – particularly those who’ve never watched any of the videos – also used the same lie to attack Carly Fiorina’s statements about Planned Parenthood. Back then, they admitted to never having even seen the videos. Kinda hard to say someone’s lying about something she’s seen and you haven’t, isn’t it?
That said, the video (which you can watch here) both Ted and Carly are referencing did take video footage of a miscarried baby at the age the StemExpress ex-employee was referring to, and inserted it into the StemExpress ex-employee’s testimonial to illustrate what had happened to the intact fetus. Somethings are better left to video footage and not the imagination, as the video proves. The main takeaway from that video is exactly what Carly Fiorina referenced and exactly what Ted Cruz is referencing here: the aborted baby, who’s heart was still beating, was kept it alive to harvest its brain.
Seriously, how on EARTH did we reach a point in our society where we’re more concerned about whether the baby in the video was the real aborted baby or a miscarried baby (that was the same age and gestation as the aborted baby) than the fact that Planned Parenthood cut into its face TO HARVEST ITS BRAIN?
However, if you’d like to completely discredit the video in question simply due to the miscarried baby, there are a plethora of other disgusting videos for you to choose from. Don’t take our word for it, watch some of these yourself. Start with watching these here, here, and here. GRAPHIC warning.
For those who can’t stomach it, I interviewed former Planned Parenthood director, Abbie Johnson on the show. Watch below.
