It’s amazing the lengths to which pro-abortion advocates will go in order to defend Planned Parenthood from the indefensible. Nancy Pelosi is no exception, and in an interview with CNN, she attacked the Center for Medical Progress, calling their videos fake and saying she wants the pro-life group – and not Planned Parenthood – investigated. And what’s truly shocking is that she says all of this while acknowledging that she hasn’t actually watched the videos.
I don’t stipulate that these videos are real. And the fact is – the fact is, that, uh, the research that is being criticized, the research that has been supported. No, I haven’t seen – I’ve seen some news reports on it, but I also know that some of it is not real. You can create any reality that you want.
… And I think they should be investigated, as to how they attained those, and doctored those, and had them be accepted as something that was an indictment against Planned Parenthood, because that’s not true.
There is no reason for Pelosi to call the videos fake, considering that the full, unedited footage of every single video was released. But then, she said herself that she hasn’t seen them, yet she’s willing to blast the Center for Medical Progress in defense of Planned Parenthood. It’s enough to make one wonder if there is anything that Planned Parenthood could be caught doing on camera that would cause Pelosi to rescind her support. This isn’t the first time Pelosi has demanded that the Center for Medical Progress be investigated, but at some point, she might want to take a few minutes to actually watch the videos so she can at least to pretend to know what she’s talking about.
Pelosi definitely got one thing right: you can create any reality that you want. And that’s exactly what she, along with Planned Parenthood’s supporters, is doing. The truth is, there is a lot that Planned Parenthood has to answer for, and breaking multiple federal laws is just the tip of the iceberg. Unfortunately, they have plenty of congressional allies willing to stick their heads in the sand so they may remain ignorant of the facts of the situation, and continue to live in their own little created reality where Planned Parenthood is an organization devoted to doing good, as opposed to an evil, law-breaking abortion mill that is killing and then selling preborn babies to make a profit.
