RUSH: Let’s move on to the Planned Parenthood Stack here. “Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards…” By the way, do you know who that is? (interruption) That’s right. Cecile Richards is a the daughter of Ma Richards, the former governor of Texas. So, “Planned Parenthood Federation of America President Cecile Richards apologized for the lack of compassion portrayed by an executive in an undercover video…” It was the “tone” that was bad. Her “tone.” They apologize for her “tone.”
This is Dr. Nucatola who was describing — while eating salad and drinking cabernet — how you harvest body parts from aborted babies and how you make sure that they’re whole and intact and not crushed, and then how you sell them and then how you make a little money off of it. They didn’t apologize for any of that. They just apologized for her attitude. But Cecile Richards, the daughter of Ma Richards, “continued to refute claims that the organization is profiting from fetal tissue donation.
“Richards spoke in a new video released by the organization on Thursday. This was the first time the organization had addressed the tone of the comments publicly.” The “tone” is all they’ve addressed here. Ma Richards’ daughter said, “Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide.” Does that just not want to make you vomit? “Our top priority is the compassionate care that we provide” in our abortion factories. “In the video, one of our staff members…”
Not one of your “staff.” Your medical director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola! “[O]ne of our staff members speaks in a way that does not reflect that compassion, this is unacceptable and I personally apologize for the staff member’s tone and statements.” Big whoop. Apologizing for the “tone.” You see, in liberalism, that counts. Yes, apologizing for your intentions, apologizing for your attitude and your tone? That’s really all you have to do. By the way, Ma Richards’ daughter, Cecile Richards, is married to top honcho at the Service Employees International Union.
One other thing: I kind of got it wrong about Warren Buffett. Yeah, he gave them $100 million, but since 2002 to 2012 or ’14 or whatever, that man has donated $1.2 billion to Planned Parenthood and other “abortion rights” operations. It’s $1.2 billion
Warren Buffett has donated. That’s another thing. You know why he does that? So they’re never gonna come after him as a rich guy. They’re never going to. The barbarians are never gonna show up at his gate.
They’re never gonna demand Warren Buffett give up any of his fortune ’cause he does all those politically correct things. The same thing with Gates. And then Ma Richards’ daughter said in the video, “I want to be really clear, the allegation that Planned Parenthood profits in any way from tissue donation is not true.” Well, prove it, then! It’s kind of hard to believe that it costs $24,250 to transport a baby’s liver to their harvesting partners. By the way, so what if they don’t profit? They’re still doing it!
The evil is the profit in the harvesting of body organs from aborted children? The real evil there is the profit? By the way, it does profit them, and do you know how we know? This whole thing does occur for profit, and guess who let the cat out of the bag on that one? None other than Media Matters! “You know, I’m… I could throw a number out that’s anywhere from $30 to $100 depending on the facility, and whatÂ’s involved. It just has to do with space issues, are you sending someone there thatÂ’s going to be doing everything, or is their staff going to be doing it?
“What exactly are they going to be doing? Is there shipping involved, is somebody coming to pick it up,” meaning an organ. “So, I think everybody just wants to — itÂ’s really just about if anyone were ever to ask them, ‘Well what do you do for this $60, how can you justify that? Or are you basically just doing something completely egregious, that you should be doing for free.’
“So it just needs to be justifiable. And, look, we have 67 affiliates. They all have different practice environments, very different staff, and so with that number…” The actor says, “Did you say sixty-seven?” Nucatola says, “Sixty-seven.” The actor says, “Okay. And so of that number, how much would personality of the personnel in there, would play into it as far as how weÂ’re speaking to them?”
Remember, the actor is posing as a buyer. Nucatola: “I think for affiliates, at the end of the day, theyÂ’re a non-profit, they just donÂ’t want to — they want to break even. And if they can do a little better than break even, and do so in a way that seems reasonable, theyÂ’re happy to do that.”
This was offered as evidence that they’re not doing it for profit by Media Matters. She says her affiliates, Dr. Nucatola says, “makes clear Planned Parenthood isnÂ’t just covering their costs in these transactions. She says her affiliates are happy to ‘do a little better than break even’ when possible. Obviously, when you do better than break even in a financial transaction, thatÂ’s called a profit. This is an admission that PP is profiting from these sales.
“Again, Dr. Nucatola is being somewhat careful here because she knows where the legal line prevents her from going. Planned Parenthood canÂ’t go wild with its organ prices,” because they can’t make the profit obvious. “But if they can make a little on the side selling organs in a way that ‘seems reasonable,’ then ‘theyÂ’re happy to do that.'”
That doesn’t prove that they’re not profiting. It proves that they are, having the director of medical services explain how they skirt the law by keeping profits small enough to not be noticed or to pass muster or what have you. And of course the next story: “Democrats Come to Defense of Planned Parenthood,” in TheHill.com. “Congressional Democrats are coming to the defense of Planned Parenthood,” as I told you would happen. This is not gonna change anybody’s mind. And if you’re waiting for some Democrat to stand up and say, “Oh, my God, I had no idea this is what Planned Parenthood was doing, I condemn.” That’s never gonna happen, folks. It just isn’t gonna happen.
And I’ll tell you, if you are a devout Christian, there’s nothing anybody could point out to you about Christ to make you change your mind about him, right? There’s nothing any politician, there’s no scam video somebody could run, if you’re a devout believer in Christ, there’s nobody that’s gonna talk you out of it. Same thing here. If you’re a devout believer in abortion and Planned Parenthood, there’s nothing anybody can do that’s gonna talk you out of it. It’s their religion.
