The liberal media has taken its marching orders from Planned Parenthood and are happily marching with them.
From Cosmo to the Daily Beast to the Washington Post, left-wing writers are parroting the narrative that Planned Parenthood did not sell baby body parts, because they gave the parts to their business partners at cost.
But. Of course they sold them.
Dr. Deborah Nucatola of Planned Parenthood said exactly that on the now infamous videotape taken secretly by David Daleiden and his team from the Center for Medical Progress posing as entrepreneurs hoping to get into the baby body parts business. Nucatola even cited prices ranging from $30 to $100, she said.
Consider someone going into a Ford dealership this afternoon and buying a car at cost. It is still a sale. It is not a “sharing” of the car, which is the way the Washington Post described the monetary transaction between Planned Parenthood and the company called StemExpress.
The question is not whether Planned Parenthood sold body parts. The question is, did it make a profit? If it did, it is probably in violation of federal law. And even liberal New York University ethicist Arthur Caplan says it looks like that’s what happened in this case.
