    If not for prior #Gosnell Twitter campaign, would MSM be covering Bronx and D.C. revelations?

    If not for prior #Gosnell Twitter campaign, would MSM be covering Bronx and D.C. revelations?

    We previously noted how an active Twitter movement forced the mainstream media into covering the Gosnell trial, Infographic — Conservative Tweets Force MSM Coverage of #Gosnell.

    Another pro-life group has released videos of clinics in the Bronx and District of Columbia, and it is getting mainstream newspaper coverage.

    From The Washington Post, Antiabortion group releases videos of clinic workers discussing live births:

    An antiabortion group that mounted a six-month undercover investigation has released videos this week that raise questions about what might happen to a baby as a result of an unsuccessful abortion.

    One video features a D.C. doctor, Cesare Santangelo, who said that in the unlikely event that an abortion resulted in a live birth, “we would not help it.” Santangelo was answering repeated questions from an undercover operative about what would happen, hypothetically, if she gave birth after an unsuccessful abortion.

    “I mean, technically, you know, legally, we would be obligated to help it, you know, to survive, but . . . it probably wouldn’t,” Santangelo is shown telling the woman, who was 24 weeks pregnant. “It’s all in how vigorously you do things to help a fetus survive at this point.” …

    Another video released Sunday shows an unidentified worker in the Bronx  saying the clinic would put the baby in a jar of “solution” that would cause it to stop breathing. Marjana Banzil, director of the Bronx clinic, said Friday she had not viewed the video but that any employee who would say such a thing was misinformed.

    From The NY Times, Group Shows Covert Video of a Bronx Abortion Clinic:

    When a pregnant woman posing as a patient asked what happens if the fetus accidentally “comes out” at home before the final procedure, a staff member replied, “If it comes out, it comes out. Flush it.”

    The woman also asked what happens if the removed fetus is still “twitching” or “breathing.” The staff member said all aborted fetuses are placed in jars of solution and sent to a laboratory for weighing; if the fetus is still moving, “the solution will make it stop.”

    The longer video shows that the staff member has been assigned to record the woman’s medical history, but is not an abortion counselor. In the same video, an abortion counselor gives the woman somewhat different explanations.

    When the woman asks the counselor what will happen if the fetus emerges from the abortion breathing, the counselor explains that it is unlikely, but that the doctor will send it to a hospital or resuscitate it: “Once that pregnancy comes out alive, he will do everything he can to save it.”

    The counselor also explains that the woman will not be dilated enough to accidentally deliver at home.

    The NY Times link says the story appeared on page A15 in the NY edition, so it wasn’t in any national editions. The story said Lila Rose/Live Action (Breitbart lives!) previously made videos to try to get PP government funds cut. This was the kicker for me, “The current law (as opposed to Cuomo Jr.’s support for on-demand-whenever) permits abortion after 24 weeks only if a woman’s life is in danger, although it is not enforced because federal court rulings have allowed less restrictive late-term abortions.” (I read that to mean that Gosnell-schmosnell—the court says there’s nothing wrong with it.)

    The Post says Lila Rose seeks to “provoke,” and called the pregnant women in the films “operatives.” The story stated that “Barely 1 percent…” of abortions (“…perhaps 15,000…”) occur after 21 weeks, although who knows from where those statistics came. (Guttmacher Institute was mentioned earlier in the article, but the numbers mentioned are not attributed to anyone.)

    Does “Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics” count as journalism nowadays??

    What happened to the whole narrative that late-term abortions wouldn’t be done except to save the life or health of the mother, or if the fetus had such severe birth defects that it couldn’t live anyway?

    The uncovering of criminal activity going on in these clinics and airing their revelations publicly is like shining a flashlight in a dark corner and seeing the cockroaches scurry. You just know, however, that there are more cockroaches than just the ones you saw fleeing.

    Let us please stop calling them Planned Parenthood. Just call them what they do Planned Babykilling.
