Obviously not quite that simple but it may not be far off from it.
We live in a world where our founding principle of an unalienable right is no longer self-evident. Remember this? “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Planned Parenthood’s national organization and its California affiliate have announced a federal lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), the pro-life group that produced a series of videos last summer exposing the abortion business’s apparent practices of selling the body parts of aborted babies and altering the position of babies during abortion in order to harvest their intact organs.
The complaint against CMP – the court proceedings which Planned Parenthood’s attorney, Beth Parker, reportedly said could go on for as long as 18 months – describes the pro-life group as:
[A] complex criminal enterprise conceived and executed by anti-abortion extremists. The express aim of the enterprise – which stretched over years and involved fake companies, fake identifications, and large-scale illegal taping – was to demonize Planned Parenthood, harass and intimidate its dedicated staff, and interrupt its operations, all with the ultimate goal of interfering with women’s access to legal abortion.
“Today, Planned Parenthood is going on the offense,” Kathy Kneer, president of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California said – according to The Hill – in a call with reporters to which Breitbart News journalists were shut out.
