Planned Parenthood president blames 'militant wing' of anti-abortion crowd for videos

In any other context, this would be funny.  The president of Planned Parenthood, appearing on This Week, said that what needs to be looked at is not the organization selling human body parts, but rather the "militant wing" of the anti-abortion movement that bombs clinics and murders abortion doctors.

Daily Caller:

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards tried to downplay recent videos showing doctors discussing the selling of body parts and organs of aborted babies in a Sunday “This Week” interview.

Richards tried to blame the  “militant wing” of the anti-abortion movement for the videos, telling host George Stephanopoulos they have bombed clinics and murdered doctors in the past:

“This has been a three-year, well funded by the most militant wing of the anti-abortion movement in this country to try to entrap doctors and, of course, highly doctored videos which show absolutely they –doctors repeatedly said, it’s all been edited out, Planned Parenthood does not at all profit from fetal tissue donation, which is an important element of health care research in this country,” Richards said.

Richards claims that the videos were "selectively" edited, failing to mention that the entire, unedited video was released at the same time. 

You've got to hand it to Richards – her creative talking points are at least entertaining.  Maybe she'll take that stand-up act to Vegas.
