Every video anyone shows is edited. Don’t let the pro-aborts change the subject.

As shown below, one of the most consistent double deceptions used by the child killers/sellers at Planned Parenthood and their supporters is that the videos uncovering their deeds were “highly edited” or “selectively edited.”  One deception that is the easiest to show is that the full videos are online as well.  Every journalist and pro-lifer should simply note that and ask whether they knew of the full videos or not. Either way they lose: If they didn’t know, why not?  If they did know, why are they deceiving others?

The other deception is pretending that every video you see isn’t edited.  Every news story is edited, even in the sense that they showed you one story (Cecil the lion) and not another story (Cecile Richards, Planned Parenthood CEO and chief liar and baby killer/seller).  Every documentary is edited, or no one would have time to watch them.  And so on.

But just because videos are edited doesn’t mean they are misleading.  If Planned Parenthood and their defenders want to make that claim they need to back it up.  Are they claiming that those weren’t real PP employees?

So never let the “Christian” Left or other Molech-worshiping ghouls get away with dismissing the videos as being edited.  Just ask a simple question: “Have you watched them?”  Then add, “Either way, let’s watch them together and you can highlight where you think they were deceptively edited.”

Via Democrats Blocking Bill to De-fund Planned Parenthood Admit They Haven’t Seen Shocking Videos | LifeNews.com.

But multiple democrats admitted they have not even seen the videos that caused the stir leading to Senate Republicans putting forward the bill to de-fund Planned Parenthood.

After the vote, Senate Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire, who voted against the bill, released a statement through her federal office in Washington, D.C. In her quote, Shaheen said the videos were “highly edited.”

However, John McCormack at the Weekly Standard caught up with Senator Jeanne Shaheen and directly asked her about the Planned Parenthood video tapes. “I have not seen them,” Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire told McCormack after the vote.

Shaheen is not the only senator voting against de-funding Planned Parenthood who admittedly hasn’t watched the videos. As McCormack reports:

“I have not seen them, no,” Senator Bob Casey of Pennsylvania told me last week.

“I’m sorry, what’s your name?” asked Senator Brian Schatz of Hawaii in response to a simple yes-or-no question. “Can you call my comms director?”

As New York senator Chuck Schumer stepped into a senators-only elevator, I asked him the same yes-or-no question. “Shut the door,” Schumer told an aide.

Only one Democratic senator, Claire McCaskill of Missouri, told me that she had seen any of the videos. McCaskill agreed that the videos were disturbing, but she added that “that’s not the point. The point is to prevent abortions by making sure that women can get birth control.”
