I thought I might just weigh in on the whole Planned Parenthood SCANDAL ruminating in the media for the past few weeks.
One of my first observations was how liberals almost IMMEDIATELY blamed Fox News for daring to focus on the story of Planned Parenthood selling what representitives from Planned Parenthood described as “HUMAN body parts” from “unborn fetuses.” That in and of itself is amazing because Planned Parenthood constantly claims that a fetus is not “human” but then sells the organs as “human body parts.”
Fox News did indeed use a calculated attack in its coverage of the story, but I feel it was for good reason. Planned Parenthood has consistently used Fox News as a whipping post within its rank and file, claiming that Fox News was lying in most of its reporting about Planned Parenthood and that they had a “hidden agenda” to outlaw abortion and take rights away from women. Given a perfect opportunity, Fox News producers teed up the ball and broke out the driver.
This produced an absolute hysteria from the left which has been a lot of fun to watch. Liberal groups including Planned Parenthood themsleves first tried to dismiss the story as a “hit piece” from David Daleiden and his non-profit, the Center for Medical Progress, when he first accused the health care provider of illegally selling aborted fetal baby parts.
Planned Parenthood was quick to point out that Daleiden was heavily funded by groups that oppose abortion . . . Big surprise there. I wondered why that even mattered. After all, Planned Parenthood is supported not only with tax dollars, but also with contributions from individuals and groups that are pro abortion, so what’s the difference? I didn’t get that one or how it would hurt the anti abortion crowd.
Once the campaign of attacks on the pro-life crowd started, all their bandwagon supporters on social media started in with memes about Mr. Daleiden’s videos, almost immediately saying he was “at war with women” playing Planned Parenthood and women as the victims in all of this.
That seems to be the typical liberal tactic when caught in a sticky situation. First, liberals create subterfuge. Then they publish hysteria and hyperbole about how this is an open attack on women directly or an attack on women’s rights by conservatives. And like sheeple they are, their addle brained rank and file spew it all over social media as if it were fact. Then they wait for those on the right to acquiesce. To accept without further protest.
Unfortunately the only actual known FACT is that a representative of Planned Parenthood is clearly seen and heard, ON VIDEO, offering what she called “HUMAN ORGANS” for sale to the highest bidder. There is no denying this. You can deny it until your blue in the face. But that’s what the woman in the video says.
From its inception, Planned Parenthood is the exact opposite of what its name implies. They don’t “plan parenthood” at all. They provide abortions and birth control. Nothing more. At least the government should force Planned Parenthood to change its name to something more intellectually honest. Perhaps “Abortion Clinic” would at least imply what it is that they actually specialize in. Just a thought. JD
