Do you recall this GOP Debate "dog whistle" from Carly Fiorina? "...with regard to Planned Parenthood!" . A pre-planned comment obviously used as a debate zinger.
If you are a newsy person, you know the stated video was not widely recognized by anyone, and became an object of Sunday Morning News show probing in addition social media fodder that continues today. Abc's Sunday rendition ran as such:
It appears the tape viewed by the failed HP CEO, exists! As should have been expected, it does not support Fiorina's indictment of and public declaration against Planned Parenthood.
The Daily Kos
By now we all know GOP Presidential wannabee Carly Fiorina has been telling everyone that she saw a video of an aborted fetus "with arms and legs kicking while Planned Parenthood people dissected the baby looking for its brain."
Her story is bullshit of the highest order -- HOWEVER -- there is a tiny element of truth in the story.Turns out, what she saw was a video of an infant that had been born prematurely at 19 weeks and that did not survive.
Here is the mom who gave birth to the premature baby. By the mother's own description, the baby lived only a few minutes after birth. There was no dissection and no one was "harvesting the baby's brain," fetal tissue, or any organs.
It is not clear if the mom is in on the scam that has been spreading. Her name is Lexi Oliver Fretz and she is a pro lifer. She has a Facebook page where she states "they did not ask for permission to use the photo." Apparently she knows the photo is being used deceptively; she seems to be okay with this because as she puts it, "YES it is illegal (using the photo without her permission) NO I am not going to do anything about it."
The level of deceit and manipulation from staunch pro-lifer's, is overwhelming GOP politicians who seek out and promulgate such garbage speaks volumes about American conservatism.
