Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards tried to downplay recent videos showing doctors discussing the selling of body parts and organs of aborted babies in a Sunday “This Week” interview.
Richards tried to blame the “militant wing” of the anti-abortion movement for the videos, telling host George Stephanopoulos they have bombed clinics and murdered doctors in the past:
“This has been a three-year, well funded by the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement in this country to try to entrap doctors and, of course, highly doctored videos which show absolutely they –doctors repeatedly said, it’s all been edited out, Planned Parenthood does not at all profit from fetal tissue donation, which is an important element of health care research in this country,” Richards said.
“I think what’s not told is that, of course, these are highly selectively edited,” Richards told the host. “The folks behind this, in fact, are part of the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement that has been behind the bombing of clinics, the murder of doctors in their homes and in their churches. And that’s what actually needs to be looked at.”
