Skip to comments.PP Tries To Silence Undercover Videos By Sending Threatening Letters To TV Stations
Posted on 07/28/2015 2:12:43 PM PDT by NYer
On Tuesday the third undercover video of Planned Parenthood's despicable practices was released by the Center for Medical Progress, but as the blog Jammie Wearing Fools highlights, some people may not see it if PP gets its way:
Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota warned news outlets today that airing undercover videos from the Center for Medical Progress could violate patient privacy. Planned Parenthood says the videos violate laws however no wrong doing by the Center for Medical Progress has been proven.
"The material should not be aired," states a press release sent out to the stations. This absurdly transparent attempt at damage control is no surprise. The organization has been engaging in mafia-like strong-arm tactics in their all-out attack-as-defense strategy, including congressional pressure, an Obama Department of Justice investigation. and the same from the California Attorney General's office. >
In short, PP is willing to do just about anything to stop people from hearing bad things about it. Well, anything except for not selling baby parts.
Here is the letter from Planned Parenthood, courtesy of Valley News Live. the website for station KVLY in Fargo.
To: North Dakota Health and Political Reporters and Producers
From: Jen Aulwes, Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota
Date: July 27, 2015
Re: Center for Medical Progress Expected to Violate Patient Privacy
The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is an extreme activist organization whose sole mission is to prevent women from accessing health care and to destroy Planned Parenthood. The board members of this group believe that abortion is genocide, and employ people who went to jail for attempting to bomb a womens health clinic. They are also connected with the man who murdered abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.
CMP has used footage obtained through deceit and unlawful behavior, including possible violations of state recording laws, federal tax laws and falsified state identification. Then, they concoct wildly false stories through selective editing. We expect this video will be no different in that regard; however, footage yet to come is expected to represent an extreme violation of patient privacy by including footage of post-abortion fetal tissue neither patients nor health care professionals authorized be filmed.
When your network decides whether to consider this story newsworthy, or whether to use any of this footage at all, we urge you to keep this in mind: The extremists who entered Planned Parenthood labs under false pretenses violated research protocol, and, worse, violated the privacy of patients involved. Those patients privacy should not be further violated by having this footage shared by the media.
The storage and examination processes that CMP used to get this footage are medically necessary. It is necessary medical professionals ensure an abortion is complete so that patients do not get an infection. When tissue is donated for medical research, these steps are also necessary for the donations to be completed. It is also medically necessary that researchers evaluate the laboratory procedures of a medical provider for safety standards and best practices.
Some of the conversations and protocols that occur in medical settings and among professional peers can sound jarring when taken out of context. While this can be difficult to hear or watch, it should not be used as an excuse to defund Planned Parenthood.
CMP gained access to Planned Parenthood facilities under false pretenses and filmed without securing approval from the Planned Parenthood staff being filmed or the patients whose privacy is compromised by this secret videotaping. The material should not be aired.

Well, it seems to be working. There is another blackout in place with the alphabet soup media frauds. They are just going to ignore and will this story away.
Follow the money trail!
Sounds to me like someone’s worried, they usually just shrug this stuff off, and sit back while the complicit media ignores it for them, until the next fire is set, in which they repeat the cycle.
The PP folks will have fun explaining themselves at the Pearly Gates. Good luck with that.
How did all the letters fall off “Planned Parenthood” in the title?
Cheap glue? Faulty thumbtacks?
Inability to copy and paste?
A desire to post “PP”?
Disgusting. They only worship the dollar.
At least half of the "patients" would have heartily approved, were they alive today, given the "choice".
Totalitarian leftist thugs rule the media.
