Planned Parenthood Endeavors to Keep the Media Silent

The Center for Medical Progress’ undercover exposé of Planned Parenthood harvesting aborted children’s remains — the third installment of which was released this week — is getting harder and harder for the media to ignore. Consequently, America’s largest abortion provider is doing all it can to stop the damage. Its number one priority is ensuring the Leftmedia keep silent, which it intends to accomplish with the help of SKDKnickerbocker, a leftist PR firm recruited by PP to coerce networks into submission. And it’s working. According to the Media Research Center, the network news “spent more time in one day on Cecil the Lion than they did on the Planned Parenthood videos in two weeks.”

Politico, which broke the PR story, reports, “The group circulated a memo to reporters and producers late Monday that discouraged them from airing the undercover videos, arguing that they were obtained under false identification and violated patient privacy. ‘Those patients’ privacy should not be further violated by having this footage shared by the media,‘ the memo reads.” Patients’ privacy? What about the victims whose body parts are sold? Planned Parenthood technicians may find that kind of depravity chuckle worthy, but congressional Republicans don’t, which is why Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will hold a vote before August recess to end the more than $500 million Planned Parenthood extracts annually from taxpayers. Amazingly, Minority Leader Harry Reid responded, “Good luck with that. We’re dealing with the health of American women, and they’re dealing with some right-wing crazy.” With even more videos set to be released, it’s only a matter of time before the story goes mainstream. Let’s see who the public will think is crazy — those who want to protect the sanctity of life, or those who try to justify the trafficking of human organs.
