Planned Parenthood is under fire for two (so far) videos that have been released showing PP staffers discussing how the organization harvests and sells parts from aborted babies, and alters procedures in order to not damage certain organs during the abortion process. Horrific, right? Well, the New York Times editorial board actually came to PP’s defense:
The Times’ editorial board writes “a hidden-camera video released last week purported to show that Planned Parenthood illegally sells tissue from aborted fetuses” in fact shows “nothing of the sort.” However, in the article, the only items the board takes issue with are allegations that the practice is illegal, and that PP profits from the sale of harvested baby organs (even though their representative in one of the videos haggled over price). There is no denial that it actually takes place, which is the most horrifying part of it all.
Way to be pathetic, NYT.
The Times’ defense of PP is nauseating.
