White House Stands Behind Planned Parenthood, Calling Video Makers “Extremists”

The Obama White House has never been shy in demeaning political opponents in a personal manner, nor have they been shy in regards to blaming the messenger

(CNN) The White House on Thursday dismissed the latest video accusing Planned Parenthood of selling fetal organs and tissue, calling the group behind the sting “extremists on the right.”

“There’s ample reason to think that this is merely the tried and true tactic that we have seen from some extremists on the right to edit this video and selectively release an edited version of the video that grossly distorts the position of the person who is actually speaking on the video,” White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said. “And Planned Parenthood has indicated that’s what has occurred here.”

I don’t recall Team Obama decrying the heavily edited Romney 47% video. Do you? They also called the videos fraudulent. In other words, they know how bad this issue for abortion supporters.

This comes as the group responsible for the videos has released a 4th video, just as bad, if not worse, than the other three

After three shocking videos caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, a fourth video has been released today catching a Planned Parenthood vice president discussing how to break or get around the law to sell aborted babies.

New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains’ Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.

The Federalist notes 8 shocking moments. Of course, for many, this is a yawn moment, being more concerned with a lion

This week brought with it a strange convergence. The story of surreptitious Planned Parenthood videos that appeared to show a doctor haggling with potential buyers over prices for fetal body parts and the story of an American dentist killing Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe collided in an Internet frenzy of charges and countercharges over moral priorities.

Animal rights activists and anti-abortion advocates started criticizing each other for their misplaced outrage on social media. Then the debate moved onto a wider media stage.

Rush Limbaugh bemoaned the fact some would “cry over Cecil the lion but shrug off Planned Parenthood.” Conservative media watchers claimed major networks covered Cecil the lion more in one day than they covered the Planned Parenthood story in two weeks. Even presidential candidate Marco Rubio chimed in, criticizing what he considered to be a disproportionate Cecil vs. Planned Parenthood reaction.

I did the same thing on Twitter on Wednesday, and boy howdy did people deflect away. It’s not to say that the killing of Cecil wasn’t despicable: it was. But, it was one old lion. Here we have a federally funded organization harvesting unborn baby parts, seemingly illegally, for profit. The liberal media has spent vastly more time covering Cecil, and was quick to demonize Cecil killer, driving him into hiding. He’s received tons of death threats. Yet, they’ve barely covered Planned Parenthood, except in short bursts to provide cover.

The real extremists are those who would cover for Planned Parenthood no matter what.

    If you object to fetal tissues being legally used in research, work to outlaw the practice.

    Note that abortion is legal, harvesting tissues for research (with consent) is legal, and being compensated for the work and transport is legal.

    If you don’t like the system, it’s legitimate for you to organize and get the practices banned.

    I guess you don’t realize that one is a non profit corporation that gets government grant funding and one is a private citizen.

    In America, the government protects their own, not private American citizens.

    The government protects all of its corporations and departments, no matter how bad their actors and agents behave.

    Private American Citizens do not have a government…. And technically we don’t need one anyways.

    What we need is to get rid of this organization that pretends to be for the people but is rather a mechanism for the few privileged to get rich and powerful. Because that is all it actually is.

    And the sooner Americans wake up from their charmed spell of chanting USA over and over again, the better off we will all be!

    -If you object to fetal tissues being legally used in research,…yada, yada-

    Ginde also suggests ways for Planned Parenthood to cover up its criminal and public relations liability for the sale of aborted body parts.

    “Putting it under ‘research’ gives us a little bit of an overhang over the whole thing,” Ginde remarks. “If you have someone in a really anti state who’s going to be doing this for you, they’re probably going to get caught.”
