RESTON, VA – Media Research Center (MRC) Culture Vice President Dan Gainor issued the following statement after ABC and CBS ignored a chilling video of Planned Parenthood’s Senior Director of Medical Services selling body parts of aborted babies. Although Planned Parenthood receives taxpayer subsidies and a senior official appears to admit on tape to violating federal laws against partial-birth abortion and selling human body parts, ABC and CBS didn't devote a single second to the story. NBC's Today used only 39 seconds to tell the story, carefully avoiding any damning quotes from the video and using the images merely as background.
MRC Culture Vice President Dan Gainor reacts:
“This is a network media cover-up of a grisly practice the Nazis might support, but virtually all Americans consider worse than barbaric. It is pure evil. How is it not news that a senior executive at Planned Parenthood, an organization that receives millions of taxpayer dollars each year, seems to be violating the law and selling aborted babies' body parts apparently obtained through illegal partial-birth abortions? This practice is as ghoulish as anything Josef Mengele ever did. And this isn’t news?
“ABC and CBS are so outlandishly pro-abortion they passed on the news that a taxpayer-funded entity appears to have been breaking the law and trafficking human body parts. As with the Gosnell nightmare, journalists have refused to cover this story because it upsets the narrative they actively push which is that Planned Parenthood cares about women’s health.
“If ABC and CBS continue to ignore this story, they are accomplices to one of the most gruesome practices the abortion industry has perpetrated to date. Shame on them.”
