Pro-life political leaders responded quickly to the video. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott started an investigation. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also promised an investigation in his state and was one of 11 Republican presidential candidates, including Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, George Pataki, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Scott Walker, to release a statement denouncing Planned Parenthood and pledging allegiance to the pro-life cause.

National Right to Life Committee president Carol Tobias didn’t address the claims that Planned Parenthood profits from fetal tissue sales, but she did call for an investigation into the abortion giant’s practices. She found Planned Parenthood’s willingness to manipulate unborn children to harvest undamaged fetal tissue particularly problematic. Nucatola’s statements raised several ethical questions, “including whether pregnant women are being given detailed information in advance about exactly what is going to be done to them and their babies,” Tobias said.

She also encouraged Democratic lawmakers who oppose the federal 20-week abortion ban to reconsider their motivations. 

“Lawmakers who have enjoyed Planned Parenthood’s backing should now be asked whether they will continue to oppose pending legislation to restrict the abortion of pain-capable unborn children after 20 weeks fetal age, as Planned Parenthood insists,” Tobias said. “And if so, whether they are motivated in any degree by a desire to preserve Planned Parenthood’s ability to deliver intact, well-developed baby body parts to order.”

It's OK to slaughter babies but not use their dead bodies for research? I mean, "use discarded fetal tissue". Folks sure have a way of wording things so it doesn't sound as gross and awful as it truly is. 

There was talk that this video was heavily edited and basically a hoax. Any word on that before we all man our battle stations?

Susan the full video was released as well--almost 3 hours long (see bottom of original post). This is not a hoax, although Planned Parenthood and their cronies are trying everything they can to discredit the originators ("They set up a FAKE company! Planned Parenthood was the victim of a video sting operation!" As if that's worse than selling baby parts.) and deflect with weasel words ("disposition of fetal tissue for medical research", no selling just reimbursement for shipping costs, etc.).

Folks, this is exploding on Twitter, as much as the mainstream media is trying to cover it up.

EDIT: As soon as I posted the above link, I saw this update: http://www.lifenews.com/2015/07/16/shock-abc-and-cbs-end-their-censorshi....

Mainstream media is being forced to cover this because of outrage on social media and calls for investigations by politicians, but of course their coverage is slanted.

I hadn't had time to follow up on this story, but I'm not sure that I'm happy that it's not a hoax, KWIM? 

One of these days the media spin machine is going to create a rift in the space/time continuum and we will all be sucked into a black hole.
