Yes, of course. The 'new'ish' laws of this this once great land are just wonderful. Selling aborted baby parts, NDAA, AHCA, eminent domain laws, looking to give Iran billions, protecting Monsanto through the FDA. Quite the legacy we are building here.

It is election season and demagoguery and propaganda are the only tools for those bankrupt of solutions and ideas.

Otherwise, expect more of the same...from the same people.

More information as the next video is released (how's that for timing?) by the relentless hoaxers, maybe in response to these findings of no wrong doing.


The trend of fruitless investigations has prompted governors in Washington, New York, New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Virginia to deny calls for probes in their own states. Most recently, Idaho Governor Butch Otter announced last week that his administration would not investigate the state’s Planned Parenthood affiliates.

"]There is no evidence a crime has been committed,” he wrote in a letter to the state legislature.

Most of the other states investigating Planned Parenthood are unlikely to produce any evidence considering that the organization’s regional affiliates only facilitate fetal tissue research in three states: California, Washington, and Oregon. No investigations into Planned Parenthood are underway in Washington and Oregon. The California Attorney General’s office is investigating the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) for potential violation of privacy and tax laws. [Source]


And these governors aren't the only ones backpedaling. This may well have blown up in the faces of many, including some candidates for presidential office.

Attack on Planned Parenthood Called Likely to Backfire

Recently, Gov. Scott Walker led an effort that forced Planned Parenthood to close several Wisconsin clinics, and the latest attack to cut federal funds would do nothing to solve the issues faced by women in Wisconsin, Safar said. "We're not even coming close to serving the need that there is with the funding that we do have," she said.

"Cutting the federal funding would be going in the absolute wrong direction. We would see more unintended pregnancies, more cases of sexually transmitted diseases and more abortions." Planned Parenthood handles 60,000 patients in Wisconsin every year. Safar said one in five Wisconsin women has been a Planned Parenthood patient. Nationwide, she said,

Planned Parenthood helps prevent 345,000 abortions every year. Only 3 percent of Planned Parenthood's activities involve abortion, she said; the vast majority of its work is providing health care for women.

You seem mighty confused...

Baby parts are not being sold...tissue is being donated.
NDAA is over 50 years old..
AHCA is new...People getting dropped by their insurance when they get sick is "old"
Eminent Domain is over a hundred years old...mostly employed by folks in your home state of TX to build pipelines for oil.
Not sure what your beef is with the FDA...I do know that the GOP have dramatically and repeatedly defunded the FDA in recent years..

Let me know if you would like links to any of the above to clear things up.

Just in too..

Americans back federal funds for Planned Parenthood health services: poll

Americans broadly support providing federal funding for free women's health exams, screenings and contraception services, a Reuters/Ipsos poll has found, suggesting risks for Republicans criticizing Planned Parenthood as part of the 2016 campaigns.

Support for federal funding of Planned Parenthood itself to provide those services was even stronger, according to the Reuters/Ipsos released on Wednesday.


So, even though our for-show Congress and CMP made the effort, most women and many Americans saw through the sham.


Seventy-three percent of respondents said they supported federal funding for an unnamed group to provide women's health exams, 69 percent backed federal dollars for prenatal services, and 59 percent were in favor of it for contraception. Both Democrats and Republicans polled supported federal funding for the services.


And again, just as a reminder, this funding 1.) isn't nearly enough and 2.) is actually just a very small drop in the bucket.

Have any of the videos suggested criminal activity?

If so, what kind of criminal activity?

How is what CMP did considered a "hoax"?

I don't understand how videotaping a conversation and then letting others view it, to make up their own minds, is considered a hoax. ETA I guess you could say they hoaxed PP with posing as interested buyers. Is that what you mean?

As for the rest of your post, of course it's legal. It may be disgusting and questionably ethical, but they are smart enough to work within legal parameters, and often lobby to expand those parameters before taking any step further.

Their hoax was to set up people and then deceptively edit videos to take peoples' words out of context and intermingle them with erroneous or outright false information.

All to create an uproar surrounding something that was not true.

Also see above.

No confusion here. "Tissue" is not how I would refer to my children, but I guess me using "baby parts" and you saying "tissue" separates us on the issue.
NDAA is revised every year and it's never in a good way. Like detaining you indefinitely without a trial. 2012?
AHCA is good? Not for the working class! Every working person I know has taken a hit.
The FDA refuses to allow food to be marked GMO.
Eminent domain probably wasn't intended for Jerry Jones to build a new football stadium.
But back on point, forgive me if I don't believe the government investigation.

There are edited versions because the originals are long. One was 5.5 hours long.

But they made the originals public too. I listened to a few hours of the 5~ hour long one.

Can you show me where something was taken completely out of context, when comparing an edited version with the full length one they released along with it?

I'm not talking about CMP's commentary on the issue, like in the post you made. I mean the videos themselves.

Thanks.

PP knows they are under extreme scrutiny.

There's always the chance an employee will do or say something, but overall, as much as PP has been investigated --- of course they are vindicated once again.

Start here.

Unspinning the Planned Parenthood Video

Then take a look at this...

I read the full transcripts of the Planned Parenthood videos and consulted with a friend of mine who is a lawyer and learned that they had not, in fact, talked about violating any laws in those videos.

Planned Parenthood Tapes: Full Transcripts

It is legal to donate fetal tissue for things like scientific research, and the cost is to cover the cost involved with the donation, not make a profit.


And then you tell us.

Who didn't watch them? Who just parrots?

I personally, and many others here and in the world took the time to read full transcripts, watch both the short and full videos where available, research, and put things in legal and actual context, research the funding issues, and clarify. Can you say the same?
