The Twittersphere blew up after Planned Parenthood sent a tweet from its official Twitter account for which it could have probably made a better choice of words:
Where the abortion providing organization made a mistake was in using the phrase “out on a limb”. This is sensitive verbiage for the organization to employ since they were recently exposed in a series of videos talking about how they sold aborted fetal body parts.
The reaction from Twitter was instant:
Planned Parenthood was exposed earlier this year when actors using hidden cameras portrayed buyers from a human biologics company and spoke with senior Planned Parenthood executives over the possible sale of body parts.
The videos were released by the Center for Medical Progress, and in one video, Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s senior director of medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, said that Planned Parenthood abortion providers were “very good at getting heart, lungs, liver,” and even went on to estimate a price of $30 to $100 “per specimen.”
In the United States it is illegal to profit from the sale of human organs, including organs from unborn fetusus.
Even so, Planned Parenthood has denied that the organization profited from illegal transactions and argued that the discussion was merely about reimbursement for “reasonable expenses related to tissue donation.”
The organization, however, recently announced that it would no longer accept such “reimbursement,” which called both the original practice and their defense of it into question once again.
Any way you look at it, Planned Parenthood is very good at making public mistakes.
