Skip to comments.Obama Spokesman: “No Evidence” Planned Parenthood Acted Unethically by Selling Aborted Babies
Posted on 07/30/2015 1:11:12 PM PDT by Morgana
The top spokesman for President Barack Obama today said theres essentially no evidence that Planned Parenthood acted unethically by selling the body parts of aborted babies. Ergo, theres no reason for Congress to de-fund Planned Parenthood.
The comments from White House spokesman Josh Earnest come despite a fourth video showing the abortion giant potentially breaking state and federal laws to sell the body parts of aborted babies.
The Hill has more about Obamas spokesmans comments:
White House press secretary Josh Earnest stopped short of issuing a formal veto threat against the legislation, but he said on balance, the president would not be supportive of such congressional action.
This is a tactic we have seen used before, Earnest said of the GOP legislation. The president obviously does not support that ongoing effort.
The spokesman accused Republicans of trying to play some politics with some selectively edited videos and said they were released in a fraudulent way.
Earnest also said he is not sure if President Obama has seen the videos, but added he is following the story in the news.He had no specific comment on the footage, other than to suggest the footage was selectively edited.Earnest said the fraudulent way the videos were released means there is not a lot of evidence Planned Parenthood violated their own standards and rules.
Asked how he knows the videos are fraudulent, Earnest said he was relying public statements made by Planned Parenthood.
SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately
Carol Tobias, the president of National Right to Life, disagrees.
The chirpy nonchalance with which these Planned Parenthood executives talk about dismembering and pricing unborn children is both sickening and deplorable, she told LifeNews.
After three shocking videos caught Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and arranging the sale of body parts of aborted babies, a fourth video has been released today catching a Planned Parenthood vice president discussing how to break or get around the law to sell aborted babies.
New undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, negotiating a fetal body parts deal, agreeing multiple times to illicit pricing per body part harvested, and suggesting ways to avoid legal consequences.
In the video, actors posing as representatives from a human biologics company meet with Ginde at the abortion-clinic headquarters of PPRM in Denver to discuss a potential partnership to harvest fetal organs. When the actors request intact fetal specimens, Ginde reveals that in PPRMs abortion practice, Sometimes, if we get, if someone delivers before we get to see them for a procedure, then we are intact.
SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must Investigate Planned Parenthood for Selling Aborted Baby Parts
Wed have to do a little bit of training with the providers or something to make sure that they dont crush fetal organs during 2nd trimester abortions, says Ginde, brainstorming ways to ensure the abortion doctors at PPRM provide usable fetal organs.
As LifeNews reported, the first video of undercover footage shows Planned Parenthood Federation of Americas Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and admitting she uses partial-birth abortions to supply intact body parts.
In the second video, Planned Parenthood doctor Maru Gatter discusses the pricing of aborted baby body parts telling the biotech company officials that the prices for such things as a babys liver, head or heart are negotiable. She also tells the officials that she could talk with the Planned Parenthood abortion practitioners to potentially alter the abortion procedure to kill the baby in a way that would best preserve those body parts after the unborn child is killed in the abortion.
A third video caught Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains Vice President and Medical Director, Dr. Savita Ginde, discussing selling aborted baby parts and dissecting aborted babies.
Punished by a ba-by Punished by a ba-by Punished by a ba-by
That was my first thought too. How can it be unethical if you are just preventing punishment for ‘a mistake’
Lie Until You Cannot Lie Anymore!!!
the man is evil Through and Through
on every issue, on every day
he exudes evil, hatred, anger, prejudice, deception, disambiguation, and deceit
among other things
Here’s an idea: ABORT OBAMA!
There are enough aborted babies to provide a legitimate protein source for processed meat packers. Get THAT on tape.
Below is the investigation Barry’s regime conducted.
Regime: Did you do anything unethical?
Regime: Good enough for me!
The same government that used its tools of government enforncement to target political groups.
they wouldn’t realze something unethical even if it walked up and smacked them in the face.
Well 0bama, you can parse about ethics, but the selling of body parts is ILLEGAL!
Not to mention the completely despicable behavior of the abortionists and organization involved to include those who have audacity to defend this in DC.
And unfortunately, this is what the enemedia will lead off their broadcasts and news articles with.
And they wonder why so many Americans don't trust them but they can ill afford to lose their supporters or the whole libtard movement will come crashing down on them.
...and the 2015 Joseph Goebbels Award for Achievement in the Field of Crisis Management goes to....
So, they didn’t really sell aborted babies, but if they did, it wasn’t illegal. And if they did sell fetal tissue and it was illegal then there really isn’t any evidence that “they” (depending upon the meaning of “they” “sold (depending upon the meaning of “sold” “babies” (depending upon the meaning of “babies”) and if the videos appear to make it seem like fetal tissue was being sold, then that is what’s being taken out of context and the crisis firm PP hired may in fact make it look like they are concerned over their image but in fact, they are not, and this isn’t a crisis, there really is no connection between these events, because they really did nothing illegal and if they did, there is no evidence that did anything illegal and if these videos may be taken to portray that PP did in fact sell aborted fetal tissue, then that is out of context because they really did nothing wrong.
Ethics are opinions, basically. The problem is whether it is legal or not. It isn’t.
he killing of Cecil the Lion was legal, and maybe even ethical to the people of Zimbabwa, but not to the libs here.
Why not euthanize people that have body parts someone else wants? This will lead to that.
Amazing, isn't it, how efficient they can be when they want to. Of course, have a Congressional committee investigating the IRS ask for e-mails, then it will take "years" to produce them. Not so efficient then, are they?
How DID I know...?
"Everything is legal here".
This is a tactic we have seen used before, Goebbels said of Jewish interference. The Fuhrer obviously does not support that ongoing effort.
It’s pretty obvious to anyone with eyeballs what’s going on at Planned Murderhood. Even still, if that’s the Marxist-in-chief’s story than someone in the media should ask “how the hell can you know that without an investigaton?” I’m tired of this man getting a pass. Are there absolutely zero journalists left in the U.S.? Sheesh
Had to look back at the top....thought for sure this was John Whatshisname posting another semi-satire piece.
