A Second Look at the Planned Parenthood scandal

It’s a good time to take a second look at the baby body parts scandal which rocked Planned Parenthood.

A series of undercover videos three years ago showed high-ranking Planned Parenthood officials blithely discussing harvesting the body parts of aborted babies as the doctors sipped wine and savored salad.

Last week, the group behind the videos, the Center for Medical Progress, asked the Supreme Court to toss out Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit against it as a violation of first amendment rights to freedom of speech.

And just this week, Fox News featured its documentary on the scandal on its new streaming video service, Fox Nation.

The television special, “Planned Parenthood: the Hidden Harvest” is well worth a second look. It tells the story of David Daleiden, the intrepid citizen journalist who masterminded the undercover investigation.

The probe took two-and-a-half years and encompassed 300 hours of video. It also launched Congressional investigations into Planned Parenthood’s questionable business practices.

Tellingly,¬†although former Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards denied at the time that the organization profited from the sale of baby body parts, Planned Parenthood officials refused to be interviewed for “The Hidden Harvest.”

What does Planned Parenthood have to hide?
