When the shocking video of a Planned Parenthood senior official bragging about organ harvesting from aborted babies went viral yesterday, The Washington Post originally ran the story with the headline containing the words ‘organ harvesting’. However, the headline was altered a short time later, to intimate the official was merely discussing “research”.

The story itself was also edited, with body parts like the heart and liver being changed to “tissue,” yet no note was made of any changes by the publication.

The timing of the Washington Post headline change coincided with Planned Parenthood releasing its own spin on the footage, claiming it was “heavily edited” and calling for journalistic “balance”.

The Post removed a sentence about the PP official “sipping red wine” while explaining how to preserve the organs of an aborted fetus while “crushing” it. The Post also added the sentence, “In the video, Nucatola appears to allude to methods for carefully extracting the organs.”

Also in the edited version, a whole new paragraph was added about fetal tissue research. “In the 1980s and 1990s, researchers considered fetal tissue transplants a budding treatment for Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. Some believed they held the potential to prevent autism.” the retouched version notes.

The video of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, clearly shows her bragging about how babies are aborted in a specific way so 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 said to 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.”

“I’d say a lot of people want liver,” Nucatola continued. “And for that reason, most providers will do this case under ultrasound guidance, so they’ll know where they’re putting their forceps.”

The sickening footage has prompted Texas governor Greg Abbott to promise a full investigation of the organisation. In a tweet, Abbott noted that he has already sued Planned Parenthood for Medicaid Fraud.

The Washington Post wasn’t the only mainstream outlet to temper its coverage of the story. Newsweek was accused of conducting damage control when it began tweeting out a write ups of how “there’s more to [the video] than meets the eye”.

Newsweek claimed that “Tissue donation is different than the harvesting of human organs for sale”, and that “due to editing, the context is not entirely clear” in the video.

Several people pointed out that the unedited 3 hour video is even worse than the edited one, and provides all the context needed to understand exactly what Nucatola is referring to – organ harvesting.

Yet Newsweek also claimed that “At no point in the video does Nucatola say Planned Parenthood actually sells body parts, fetal or otherwise…Similarly, she does not admit to selling tissue, either personally or through the organization.”

While Newsweek hashed out the spin, AP just went full on Orwellian with their coverage:

Then everything became clearer when it was discovered that the AP author is in bed with Planned Parenthood:

Meanwhile, no word from the White House, but Obama did tweet this:
