BLACKOUT: Media Go Dark On Planned Parenthood Organ Trafficking

BLACKOUT: Media Go Dark On Planned Parenthood Organ Trafficking

A shocking video obtained by The Center for Medical Progress shows top Planned Parenthood executive Deborah Nucatola attempting to sell body parts from aborted babies.

The senior director of medical services for the country’s largest abortion supplier is shown on video bragging about how she aborts babies in such a way that their body parts and organs can later be sold for profit.

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part,” Nucatola tells actors posing as organ traffickers. “I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

While the media usually rush to flood the zone on news stories — for a few weeks our media were obsessed with stories surrounding the Confederate flag, for instance — there has been a stunning blackout on this news story. Six hours after the news broke, here is how major media reported on the expose of Planned Parenthood:

This is a story that requires thoughtful and substantive coverage. That the media are beginning by ignoring it is not a good sign that they have learned a single lesson from crapping the bed with their coverage of the monstrous abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.
