Hillary Just Reacted To Horrific Planned Parenthood Videos With 1 Word That Will Shock Many

Given Hillary Clinton’s reputation for not always telling the truth, it might come as little surprise that the Democrat presidential hopeful just said something misleading and inaccurate — one might graciously say Mrs. Clinton misspoke or overstated the case — in her defense of Planned Parenthood. But the one word she used to characterize the recently released videos that have upset people across the political spectrum will come as a shock to many.

In a one-on-one interview with the New Hampshire Union Leader, Hillary said: “Planned Parenthood for more than a century has done a lot of really good work for women: cancer screenings, family planning, all in our country.” However, what the Democrat front-runner told the newspaper in the early primary state was flat-out wrong on one, and quite likely two, counts.

In the first place, while it’s been providing what advocates call “family planning” services for about a hundred years — including many millions of abortions to prevent women from increasing the size of their families — it is highly doubtful the organization has been offering cancer screenings “for more than a century,” as its early roots date back to 1916, when Margaret Sanger’s first clinic was all about birth control. Preventing pregnancy was the group’s chief objective for many decades.

Clinton’s big goof was claiming that the Planned Parenthood services she lauded are performed “all in our country.” A quick search of the organization’s website shows that not to be true, and that the group’s global footprint is quite extensive.

“For more than 40 years,” according to a page on the site, “Planned Parenthood Global has been working overseas in partnership with local advocates, medical service providers, youth leaders and more to ensure that women, men, and young people in some of the world’s most neglected areas have access to the health care they need to control their bodies and their futures.”

The website page explains that those overseas services include sex education, providing contraceptives, and increased access to abortion.

Beyond the glaring misconceptions Hillary Clinton is trying to peddle about Planned Parenthood’s services, there’s the more surprising word she just used to describe the three undercover videos that show top executives and doctors working for the organization talking about the sale of body parts from aborted babies.

The Union Leader newspaper reports that Mrs. Clinton has, for the first time, said something negative that calls into serious question the practices of the nation’s most active provider of abortion services — a group she has long championed.

Calling them “disturbing,” Hillary Clinton said undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood officials discussing the sale of aborted fetal tissue raise questions about the process nationwide.

“I have seen pictures from them and obviously find them disturbing,”

Mrs. Clinton did not endorse a GOP-led effort to strip federal funding from Planned Parenthood — Senate leaders have indicated there will likely be a vote to defund the organization before the body takes its fast-approaching August recess. Planned Parenthood receives more than $500 million annually in federal funds, accounting for about half its operating budget.

One of the GOP senators leading the effort to take the many hundreds of millions of federal dollars away from Planned Parenthood is Kentucky’s Rand Paul, also a candidate for president on the GOP side. At an anti-abortion rally on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, Paul called on Clinton to return any donations from the organization that routinely gives big money to pro-choice Democrats.

As the Washington Post reports, Rand Paul told the abortion protestors gathered outside the Capitol: “Hillary Clinton’s hands are stained by accepting this money.”

Read The Unbelievable Letter Planned Parenthood Sent To TV Stations About Airing Undercover Vids

In anticipation of the video released yesterday by The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) exposing the truth of what goes on at Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota sent out a letter, published by KVLY-TV in North Dakota, warning news outlets in the area not to air the footage.

In the letter, Planned Parenthood claims the footage used in the videos was “obtained through deceit and unlawful behavior” and in “extreme violation of patient privacy.”

They also assert that CMP is “connected with the man who murdered abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.” However, as Tom Blumer of NewsBusters points out, Tiller’s “murderer [Scott Roeder] had no connection to pro-life groups and Tiller’s murder was immediately denounced by pro-life groups across the land.” He argues that “Planned Parenthood’s letter dishonestly rewrites history by pretending that he did, hoping that its readers at media outlets won’t know any better.”

KVLY-TV notes that no wrongdoing by CMP has been proven. Planned Parenthood, though, is scrambling to save face and save funding as the undercover videos have prompted some lawmakers to move to defund the organization.

CMP has said it plans to release several more videos exposing Planned Parenthood in the coming months.

Re: Center for Medical Progress Expected to Violate Patient Privacy

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) is an extreme activist organization whose sole mission is to prevent women from accessing health care and to destroy Planned Parenthood. The board members of this group believe that abortion is “genocide,” and employ people who went to jail for attempting to bomb a women’s health clinic. They are also connected with the man who murdered abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

CMP has used footage obtained through deceit and unlawful behavior, including possible violations of state recording laws, federal tax laws and falsified state identification. Then, they concoct wildly false stories through selective editing. We expect this video will be no different in that regard; however, footage yet to come is expected to represent an extreme violation of patient privacy by including footage of post-abortion fetal tissue neither patients nor health care professionals authorized be filmed.

When your network decides whether to consider this story newsworthy, or whether to use any of this footage at all, we urge you to keep this in mind: The extremists who entered Planned Parenthood labs under false pretenses violated research protocol, and, worse, violated the privacy of patients involved. Those patients’ privacy should not be further violated by having this footage shared by the media.

The storage and examination processes that CMP used to get this footage are medically necessary. It is necessary medical professionals ensure an abortion is complete so that patients do not get an infection. When tissue is donated for medical research, these steps are also necessary for the donations to be completed. It is also medically necessary that researchers evaluate the laboratory procedures of a medical provider for safety standards and best practices.

Some of the conversations and protocols that occur in medical settings and among professional peers can sound jarring when taken out of context. While this can be difficult to hear or watch, it should not be used as an excuse to defund Planned Parenthood.

CMP gained access to Planned Parenthood facilities under false pretenses and filmed without securing approval from the Planned Parenthood staff being filmed or the patients whose privacy is compromised by this secret videotaping. The material should not be aired.

Teen Calls 911 For Shot Friend. Dispatcher Tells Her 6 Words That Enrage Everyone Who Reads Them

Image for representational purposes only.

Esperanza Quintero wanted help for her badly wounded friend. What she got back from a 911 dispatcher in Albuquerque, N.M., were words she will remember as long as she mourns the 17-year-old boy she could not save.

Dispatcher Matthew Sanchez, who resigned Tuesday from the Albuquerque Fire Department, had been under investigation since the June 26 incident in which Jaydon Chavez-Silver was shot to death.

Quintero had been at a party with Chavez-Silver when a car drove by and opened fire. The boy was hit. Quintero called 911. The Albuquerque Fire Department released portions of a tape of the call Monday.

On the tape, Quintero, who described herself as frantic and scared after the shooting, is heard telling Sanchez that her friend had been shot and was having difficulty breathing.

“OK, is he not breathing?” Sanchez asked.

“Barely!” She then spoke to the boy. “One more breath! One more breath! There you go Jaydon. One more breath! There you go Jaydon. Good job! Just stay with me, OK? OK? There you go, good job Jaydon!”

“He’s barely breathing,” she said on the tape. “How many times do I have to f—ing tell you?”

There is a pause before the dispatcher replies.

“OK, you know what ma’am? You can deal with it yourself. I am not going to deal with this, OK?” Sanchez said.

“No, my friend is dying, I need …” Quintero said before the tape of the call ended. She later said she dropped the phone to tend her friend, who later died at a hospital.

Quintero later apologized for not being able to better communicate with Sanchez.

“I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I gave you attitude or I got upset with you,” she said.

The family of Chavez-Silver has said they want authorities to focus on finding the killer responsible for their son’s death.

Watch: Megyn Kelly Saw This Reporter’s Unfair Attack On Trump And Knew Exactly What To Do

Donald Trump asked for it, according to the reporter for The Daily Beast who wrote a story Monday about allegations Trump’s ex-wife made more than 20 years ago. However, Tim Mak’s comments didn’t set well with Fox News host Megyn Kelly, who called the story alleging Trump raped his wife “totally without merit.”

On Monday, The Daily Beast published a story that cited statements made by Ivana Trump in the early 1990s, during her divorce from Trump, in which the word “rape” was used. A statement at the time from Ivana Trump also clarified that she was not referring to the criminal act.

Tim Mak, senior correspondent for The Daily Beast, said that discussions of rape and Donald Trump had their roots in Trump’s own allegations. The Republican presidential candidate, speaking on illegal immigration, has said “rapists” are crossing from Mexico to the U.S.

“It is a statement of fact that some of the people who cross the southern border are rapists and murderers,” Kelly said in response.

Mak said Trump’s campaign brought “new relevance” to comments from a 1993 book discussing a 1989 incident.

“He deserves to be looked at,” Mak said of Trump. “His history should be looked at.”

“But that doesn’t answer the question about whether your reporting is fair or relevant,” Kelly replied. She noted that spouses often make inflammatory accusations against each other during divorce proceedings. Furthermore, Ivana Trump has since distanced herself from the comments and publicly supported her ex-husband’s White House bid.

Kelly also had harsh words for Trump’s attorney, Michael Cohen, who told The Daily Beast that a man could not legally rape his wife. Kelly said that Cohen was “wrong on the facts” and “wrong on the law.”

WATCH: MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Says Media Underestimated The Impact Of Hillary Clinton’s Email Scandal

MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell admitted on Monday that the media have underestimated the impact of the Hillary Clinton email scandal. She said that none of the intelligence officials she spoke with at a recent security conference could explain why Clinton would use a private email server unless it was to thwart inquiries.

Mitchell was responding to a question from Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski about Clinton’s email issues:

Brzezinski:  Is it possible, Andrea, that the media analysts and others have underestimated the impact of this e-mail situation on Hillary Clinton’s campaign?

Mitchell:  I think so. Look, you have two inspectors general, and they are referring this to the Justice Department… What they are suggesting is that there were classified—four out of the forty randomly selected [emails] had classified information, and it was not information that was later ungraded to be classified, it was information that was classified as “secret”…

This gets very confusing, and it can be confused further by statements on all sides. That said, the original sin, if you will, is having a private email system.

I was at a security conference speaking to intelligence officials on all sides and the attorney general, and we’ll talk about that later. But nobody can give an explanation for why a cabinet secretary would have a private email system other than to thwart inquiries, FOIAs [Freedom of Information Act requests], and someone who had spent 20 years fighting off many investigations, many of which were unwarranted and which led nowhere and so you understand the defensive crouch that a lot of Clinton people were in. But it still doesn’t explain why going from the Senate into a cabinet-level position that there was a private email system.

The New York Times public editor Margaret Sullivan has called the paper’s reporting “messy,” but said that doesn’t mean the story should be ignored:

None of this should be used to deny the importance of The Times’s reporting on the subject of Mrs. Clinton’s email practices at the State Department, a story Mr. Schmidt broke in March. Although her partisans want the focus shifted to these errors, the fact remains that her secret email system hamstrung possible inquiries into her conduct while secretary of state both by the news media and the public under the Freedom of Information Act and by Congress. And her awarding to herself the first cull of those emails will make suspicion about what they contained a permanent part of the current campaign.

Yes Hillary, even the liberal media want answers.
