New Forensic Report Flushes Planned Parenthood’s “Highly Edited” Talking Point
By Casey Mattox
Planned Parenthood can no longer hide behind a defense of distraction.
With hours of video footage available online showing its senior level executives and its baby-part-harvesting corporate partner, StemExpress, discussing the business of baby body parts, Planned Parenthood and its allies did the only thing they could do – deflect.
Unable to defend their words and afraid Americans would watch the videos and make up their own minds, Planned Parenthood employed a Democratic opposition research firm to discredit the videos and promote the narrative that the CMP videos, even the full versions available on YouTube, are all “heavily edited.” Planned Parenthood’s defenders then broke out the thesaurus and began an ever-escalating series of claims about the videos. From “edited” to “manipulated” to “doctored” to “fraudulent.” And the media played right along.
But this week, ADF released the results of a new forensic report that debunks this talking point. Coalfire, one of the country’s most trusted digital forensic analysis companies, released a report indicating the undercover videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress are “authentic and show no evidence of manipulation.”
