At last night’s CNN debate, Carly Fiorina did what the country’s major media have by and large failed to do: She simply mentioned the horrifying videos showcasing Planned Parenthood’s participation in the fetal organ harvesting trade:
“As regards Planned Parenthood, anyone who has watched this videotape, I dare Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama to watch these tapes. Watch a fully formed fetus on the table, its heart beating, its legs kicking while someone says we have to keep it alive to harvest its brain.”
After her powerful statement, Planned Parenthood and its public relations firm SKDKnickerbocker lobbied journalists to claim that Carly had made up her claims. Many complied. Here, for example, is the Washington Post‘s response:
Fiorina might have trouble finding this video to show to Clinton. No video has surfaced showing the scene Fiorina describes taking place inside a Planned Parenthood facility.
On the other hand, CNN said that Fiorina’s claim was true but said it was misleading, since part if it is eyewitness testimony and part of it is images of aborted children. Others went full truther, such as this media outlet, which called it “totally made up.” Sarah Kliff, who gained fame for defending her failure to cover the story of Kermit Gosnell — a serial murderer and abortion doctor who snipped babies spinal cords after they were delivered — on the grounds it was just a “local crime” story), published a piece at Vox headlined “Carly Fiorina is wrong about the Planned Parenthood Tapes. I know because I watched them.”
There have been 10 videos exposing Planned Parenthood since July. The media have struggled to cover most of the them, even though they are full of scandalous information about human organ harvesting. In addition to the 10 videos, lengthier footage of the hours-long meetings from which they were gleaned is also available. Everyone who cares about humanity should watch these videos, which are available here.
A few of the videos are graphic, such as this one which shows Planned Parenthood officials picking through a young boy who was recently aborted. This one also has graphic footage. The videos are very difficult to watch, such as this scene which shows a technician lifting the tiny hand and arm of a recently killed human.

As for Fiorina’s quote, she is likely referring to the entirety of the 10 videos, including the seventh video released by the Center for Medical Progress. Watch the full video for yourself. It does, in fact, show a fully formed fetus, heart beating and legs kicking. And it shows this while Holly O’Donnell, a former organ harvester who worked for StemExpress at a Planned Parenthood affiliate, graphically discuss the harvesting of a brain from a baby whose heart was beating.
WARNING: This video contains graphic imagery of an aborted child and descriptions of harvesting a brain from a male baby whose heart was beating. It also shows a baby born alive at the same age as the baby whose face and head was cut open to harvest the brain.
This is by no means the only video, and other videos include far more graphic footage of aborted children. But the scandal is that the media never covered the shocking claims of this video, not that Fiorina brought them to people’s attention.
