Is anyone else baffled by the response of the pro-abortion left to the notorious video of a Planned Parenthood executive casually discussing the sale… oh, I’m sorry, not the “sale” that would be illegal under Federal Law… the donation of aborted baby parts to for-profit commercial enterprises in return for financial reimbursement in the form of a cash transaction? They seem to actually be kind of angry and upset about it. Why?
Of course, some of them are claiming it is a fake, or borrowing the Talking Points Memo “heavily edited” descriptor, (even though the full, unedited video is available on-line). They are attacking the people who put it out, of course. They are denying that what the Planned Parenthood explicitly says in the video is what she explicitly says in the video. But the reasonable response to this, if you are pro-abortion, should be, “So what?”
If you are pro-abortion, it means you’ve made up your minds that babies in utero are not not entitled to any human rights until they pass through the birth canal and then somehow magically become human because science. (Note, there are some social left ethicists who don’t think babies or children have any right to live either, not until they become socially useful.) (And some say we’d be better off offing people at the other end of life’s continuum as well.)
Yes, there is that pesky issue of Federal Law, but it’s just odd to me that people who are so adamantly pro-abortion would have a problem with this. It does seem as though the left is much more indignant that their real beliefs are made public than at their real beliefs
Anyway, I thought the basic defense of Planned Parenthood was … “They don’t perform hardly any abortions, they just do mammograms ‘n stuff.” Which aside from being inaccurate, is an odd defense if you think abortion it’s totes fantastic.
