The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) tried a proven tactic to get their message across. I suspect they are students of the late great Andrew Breitbart. They have earned this Ushanka Tribute post.
Just as Breitbart partnered with James O'Keefe to crush ACORN with the successive rollout of anger-inducing videos, so too the CMP is executing an attack against abortion-mill Planned Parenthood.
Keep in mind, as for the political, this scandal has zero impact. If someone had already rationalized and redefined murder as "choice," then why would they change their position now that they know the dead baby is butchered for profit? Politically, this story is just an embarrassment to liberals. Kind of like Bill Clinton in 1998. Or Detroit. Or Benghazi. They just want it to go away.
So far CMP has released two shocking videos. Video 1. Video 2. The CMP hints there are more videos, and so Planned Parenthood has all but admitted this (GP). PP has done their damage assessment and must have realized they may have provided a cameraman access to the organ-harvesting operations within. My questions:
Do they use a cleaver?
Do they harvest even if they don't yet have a buyer?
Do they they dance in the baby's blood?
Do the clinic staff receive extra compensation based on the condition of the organs?
And now we know why they so adamantly desire late-term procedures. Don't we?
In the DECADES that I've been following this subject, only once or twice have they ever pointed to an actual case of a woman's health justifying an abortion. And since they pointed to it, it is suspect, as I would assume their stats on incest-pregnancies are equally inflated. To these 'people,' ANYTHING justifies more blood and less births.
As ugly as it might sound, I've always suspected that an abortion translates into a lifelong Democrat voter. It is easier to vote Democrat than to confront this demon. (Of course, my heart goes out to those few who do. I fully understand the brainwashing that happens to our young adults as I was one of them once.)
And of course, the act of sharing this opinion does not result in dead bodies. Just liberal tears now, and an early cot in the re-education camp later.
Worse. MSNBC rushed to defend Planned Parenthood. I didn't make it through this, but maybe you can. And isn't it great that YouTube is forever?
I am suspicious of any group with the word "progress" in their name, but CMP passed the test with both their videos and their mission statement:
The Center for Medical Progress is a group of citizen journalists dedicated to monitoring and reporting on medical ethics and advances. We are concerned about contemporary bioethical issues that impact human dignity, and we oppose any interventions, procedures, and experiments that exploit the unequal legal status of any class of human beings. We envision a world in which medical practice and biotechnology ally with and serve the goods of human nature and do not destroy, disfigure, or work against them.My own contribution to the memes:
No liberal cause is defended with more dishonesty than abortion. No matter what else they pretend to care about from time to time--undermining national security, aiding terrorists, oppressing the middle class, freeing violent criminals--the single most important item on the Democrats' agenda is abortion. Indeed, abortion is the one issue the Democratic Party is willing to go to war over--except in the Muslim world, which is jam-packed with prohibitions on abortion, because going to war against a Muslim nation might also serve America's national security objectives. To a liberal, 2,200 military deaths in the entire course of a war in Iraq is unconscionable, but 1.3 million aborted babies in America is something to celebrate.
The Orwellian dishonesty about abortion begins with the Left's utter refusal to use the word abortion. It would be as if members of the National Rifle Association refused to use the word gun. These "pro-choicers" treat abortion the way Muslims treat Mohammed. It's so sacred, it must not be mentioned.
The only other practice that was both defended and unspeakable in America like this was slavery....
Abortion is the sacrament and Roe v. Wade is Holy Writ.
CMP could have just accused Planned Parenthood of selling baby parts, but we know that would have gone nowhere. This effort to gather evidence and release in increments has led to a grand slam against America's abortion mills. Bravo!
CMP's YouTube Channel.U/T: FB comrades for providing the cool images. Especially comrade Ben!
My original post on this topic: Ghouls.
My Roe Effect video from 2008. (My math was right and analysis correct, but oh my conclusions were wrong!)
My 2014 article about Obama's lust for infanticide.
UPDATED and BUMPED 8.14.15:
Another shout-out to CMP. The ghouls at Stem Express have severed their contract with the ghouls at Planned Parenthood (GP). PP will now have to find another buyer of their baby parts. And, as the CMP videos clearly show, they were always seeking out that higher demand.
In a sane world, PP would have been forcibly shut down within 24 hours of the first CMP video. Today's news is the next best thing.
