Carly Fiorina’s claims that a Planned Parenthood representative was harvesting a fetus’s brain after aborting it on video with “it’s legs kicking, it’s heart beating,” have been roundly debunked, though she has continued to double down on the remarks.
The anti-choice group, Center for Medical Progress (CMP), heavily doctored the videos which triggered the recent assault on the vital women’s health organization.
That may all be over now, though, because CNN forced David Daleiden, CMP’s lead anti- Planned Parenthood hitman and the driving force behind the deceptive videos, to admit that the video that Fiorina references had nothing at all to do with an abortion.
When CNN host Andrew Cuomo confronted Deleiden about Fiorina’s graphic claims from the GOP debate stage, Deleiden said:
“Carly Fiorina was referencing a sequence in our video that shows footage of a born-alive infant from a late term abortion actually moving in the specimen pan.”
Cuomo reminded him that it was a stillborn fetus, not an aborted one:
“But if you’re talking about organ harvesting and abortions and how terrible they are why would you use a stillborn fetus, which is not a function of an abortion?”
“It’s the same baby, whether it’s born dead or alive, whether the organs are harvested or not.”
Cuomo showed unbelievable patience as he explained why the video was so deceptive:
“It’s also completely irrelevant to the point you’re trying to make, which is, ‘Look at what they do to these babies.’” It was born stillborn. It was not aborted. Doesn’t that matter to you if you’re talking about abortion?”
Of course according to Deleiden, it doesn’t matter one bit.
“It’s the same kind of fetus,” he said.
Cuomo hammered the last shot home, saying:
“My point is context. You’re saying, ‘what they do in abortions,’ that wasn’t an abortion. That’s my point.”
And that, of course, is the only point that matters here.
