A just-released undercover video provides further evidence of the disregard the abortion industry has for preborn children.
For decades, the abortion industry has soft-peddled its work. Undercover videos, however, have revealed the truth about what goes on behind closed doors during surgical abortions.
David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress has released a series of the videos, most recently from the 2014 and 2015 conventions of the National Abortion Federation – the major trade group of abortion providers in North America. Half of the NAF's members are Planned Parenthood abortuaries.
Caution: Video contains disturbing discussions.
The video contains clip after clip of providers describing the abortion process in gruesome detail, and in some cases the audience laughs about it. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards responded as expected, saying the clips are "deceptively edited."
Daleiden and sidekick Sandra Merritt, who did the exposé, face criminal charges in California for recording and releasing the videos, although similar charges in Houston, Texas, were dropped. Pro-life organizations are suggesting it is further evidence federal tax dollars ought to be stripped from the abortion industry – most of all from Planned Parenthood, which receives up to $500 million annually.
