When the Center for Medical Progress broke the story last week about Planned Parenthood and the trafficking of aborted human remains, many pro-lifers and pro-aborts alike cringed in revulsion over the videoed confirmation of gruesome practices associated with the reaping of human infants. By providing visual documentation, the Center for Medical Progress successfully exposed the rampant materialism engrained in Planned Parenthood's corporate culture as representatives callously laid out the appalling procedures for procuring viable organs and tissue while haggled over the price.
Reactions to the videos have run the gamut. See the latest video from the Center for Medical Progress here. Pro-abort fundamentalists, of course, are not finding fault with Planned Parenthood's discussed best practices for harvesting but rather with the means by which the video was obtained. According to Fox News, Nancy Pelosi is calling for an investigation of the Center for Medical Progress by the DOJ stating:
"Let's have an investigation of those people who were trying to ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy that doesn't exist."
This reaction from Rep. Pelosi is surprisingly consistent with the Left's mantra of "the nature of the evidence is irrelevant; it's the seriousness of the charge that matters," so we must commend Ms. Pelosi for being such a dependable ideologue for our nation's emergent death culture.
