No one has done a better job persuading people to defund Planned Parenthood than, well, Planned Parenthood. In video after undercover video, the organization has been its own worst enemy in the fight for taxpayer dollars. Out of their own mouths, they've let Americans into a dark world where killing is currency and empires are built on the backs of innocent children. One after another, the tapes sound like something out of a horror movie. If only they were. Instead, the gory trade -- often joked about by the employees involved -- is putting an exclamation point on taxpayers' insistence that Congress defund Cecile Richards's group.
Today, those voices were even more adamant after the release of the 13th sickening conversation with a Planned Parenthood staffer. With shocking nonchalance, the star of the Center for Medical Progress's latest show sips wine and talks about how routinely her Arizona clinics break the law by performing abortions at 24 weeks. As casually as if she were talking about the weather, Dr. DeShawn Taylor explains how she often delivers intact babies -- as late as six months -- to harvest high-quality "hearts, lungs, livers, and brains." Investigators for the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) pose as buyers, whose frank questions lead to stomach-turning answers from a group raking in $550 million tax dollars a year. In one particularly nauseating part, the Planned Parenthood doctor explains that abortion is such a workout that she had to get a gym membership. "My biceps appreciate when the dig[oxin] works," to kill the fetus before the procedure. "I remember when I was a [Family Planning] Fellow and I was training, I was like, Oh, I have to hit the gym for this," Taylor says, describing the force she feels in her biceps when she dismembers a baby.
