Default PP Videos "Heavily Edited"

http://america.aljazeera.com/article...ges-smear.html

http://www.npr.org/sections/itsallpo...od-fights-back

What a shock...what an utter shock that they were massively edited including the allegedly "whole videos"

Its ACORN all over again.

ACORN stands for Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now. They focused on voter registration and access to affordable housing and healthcare for the poor, but were destroyed due to a hoax involving a video sting operation. It's not quite as simple as the Planned Parenthood sting however. That one is clearly nonsense. The ACORN sting just made everyone involved look sketchy.

Anyway, here is the NYT's analysis of it...

It doesn't matter which side you're on politically, but if you can watch those undercover videos and not be against what Planned Parenthood is doing, you are sick. What they are doing is murdering babies and selling their body parts. Planned Parenthood MUST be defunded. This nonsense about it being for women's health is complete bullshit. We are stuck with Obamacare, and that is heavily focused on women's health issues. Legitimate women's health issues, not murder.

If you can watch the videos and not feel upset about the non existent sale of fetal parts, chances are you are actually capable of differentiating between heavily edited fiction and unedited reality.

If you can watch a movie and not be revolted by the wholesale slaughter of innocent people and animals you should be totally offended. Hollywood MUST be shut down.

For once, I agree with you.
But for some inexplicable reason, your own (unedited) post is a lot less worthy. Can you tell me why you didn't write this yourself?

I mean, you do agree that editing does not make any difference at all, I hope. If not, then you would not trust those videos to tell anything like the truth, and thus would not use them to form an opinion on anyone or anything apart from the liars who cooked them up and spread them.

You're right, PP doesn't contribute towards birth control or knowledge about STI's, or numerous other benefits.
PP is a giant abortion facility, and they should be advertised as such. "Want a quick, and easy abortion? Go to your nearest Planned Parenthood and with just ONE easy payment of 19.99, you can get rid of the "sentient" fetus in your body!"

Isn't that the American way though? Mass marketing and the like? They good hard working Capitalist Americans. Shouldn't they be lauded for that?

I'm mean she it's a little sketchy, but the robber barons of the wild west were too. Same with all those guys dumping toxic waste and destroying nature preserves and animal habitats. Or the oil spills. Those are good, honest, hard working, God fearing Americans trying to make an honest buck. Is PP really that much worse?

Well all those rapists' babies are being killed. It's bad from the rapist's point of view. So why would all those men complain about it? Makes you think, eh?

Perhaps they're all upset at being denied the chance to pay Child Support?

At least wait to post this if and when it actually is coming from a real news site.

Wikipedia doesn't have a lemma for Coalfire Systems, but it does mention the company in a number of other cases. Superficial scrutiny of them suggests to me that CS produces the results their employer wants to get, which isn't really a recommendation that inspires trust.
