The president of Planned Parenthood, on defense and trying to stem the tide of investigations into her organization’s operations like that announced by Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday, has tossed a staffer who was caught on an undercover video under the bus.
PP President Cecile Richards released a new video Thursday boasting about Planned Parenthood’s “full range” of health care services such as cancer screening, birth control and abortion. And she said the organization offers “much more,” by supporting millions as they “build their futures.”
But she tried to distance herself, and the organization, from the recorded statements of Deborah Nucatola, the head of Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Services Division.
She was caught on video describing how Planned Parenthood sells the body parts of aborted unborn children and uses partial-birth abortions to harvest intact parts, statements that have even those who traditionally support the abortion business recoiling.
