Pelosi: Planned Parenthood “Controversy…Doesn’t Exist”

In liberals’ minds, the only controversies that exist are those involving abortion access that isn’t “free” and businesses that still act like they have religious freedom. An abortion provider like Planned Parenthood openly discussing selling fetal tissue and organs and haggling over prices of aborted baby parts is not scandalous or even controversial at all. It’s “women’s health.” In fact, what’s egregiously scandalous is that organization that dared expose Planned Parenthood. They’re the ones that should be investigated, prosecuted, and convicted for…something. There had to be something illegal that they did.

Now, crushing a partially born baby’s skull and sucking its brains out? That’s “reproductive health,” and it’s so important that it should be taxpayer subsidized.

Nancy Pelosi didn’t seem to think there was anything wrong with what those two Center for Medical Progress undercover videos exposed about Planned Parenthood. The Daily Caller reported:

“[Republicans] have been out to get Planned Parenthood for as long as I can remember,” Pelosi said opening her comments.

“Planned Parenthood has as its top priority women’s health,” Pelosi said. “That’s what they have always been about. One little part of it is — and women’s health does include reproductive health, but it’s about breast cancer, cervical cancer. Testing and service to women. It’s a very, very important part of the lives of many women in America. ”

“For some reason, the Republicans have had this in their sights…for a very long time,” Pelosi said referring to Republicans wanting to defund the organization.

“This is about women’s health. Planned Parenthood has said they have done nothing illegal,” Pelosi continued. “They did not ever charge, which would be illegal, for fetal tissue. That they’ve only used — only have defrayed the cost of mailing that to someone, which is not breaking the law.”

“I support what my colleagues are doing, which is to say lets have — everybody’s calling for an investigation of Planned Parenthood. Lets have an investigation of those people who are trying to ensnare Planned Parenthood in a controversy that doesn’t exist,” she argued.

“Women’s health is what is at stake, and Planned Parenthood is a very important part of promoting women’s health in our country,” she concluded.

An investigation into Planned Parenthood by the Justice Department isn’t likely to yield any real results. They’ll probably find that the organization has operated within legal bounds, nothing will happen, and funding will continue as before.

As it turns out, the DOJ is actually looking into the Center for Medical Progress to see if they obtained their footage “legally.” Now that might be bad news for CMP. Don’t be surprised if the DOJ finds some technicality in the way they recorded their videos to be “illegal.” What an upside down world we live in. Butchering an unborn baby and selling off its organs and tissue is fine, but doing a citizen sting operation to expose evil is wrong.
