CNN's Chris Cuomo Confronted Fake Planned Parenthood Video Perp

Center for Medical Progress’s David Daleiden appeared on CNN's New Day for an on-camera interview with Chris Cuomo. Even the most sympathetic of pro-lifers know the role Daleiden and his organizational have played in the current Right-wing attacks on Planned Parenthood. Common consideration is, Deleiden and the Center for Medical Progress did to fair well at the end of the interview.

As the US economy chugs along in better economic shape than the majority of major industrial nations, and as US troops are not occupying any nation beyond poised withdrawal from Afghanistan, what is conservative America to do? Conservatives have few issues on which to build a political platform. The issue of LGBT and same sex marriage rights simply doesn't offer that "gripping" issue on which to hang political policy and campaign strategy. Alas, legal abortion continues to provide that gut issue on which to threaten "federal government shutdown", an issue on which to snuggle up to uber wealthy oligarchs with hands positioned for financial sustenance, and that issues that rightly should reach into one's heart for an answer. Abortion offers opportunity. Before I love on to the Cuomo interview, I must acknowledge with compassion how millions find the right of Choice reprehensible.   

It is same these same groups do not align to combat cop abuse, workplace discrimination, gender and sexual orientation bias.

From the transcriptcourtesy of Media Matters (Via Contemptor):
CUOMO: Here’s what really created a flash point I want you do speak to. Carly Fiorina, very passionately in the debate, very cogently brings across this image of an aborted baby on the table, the heart beating, the legs moving. Look at that video and then tell me what you think. Let me ask you about that image. Is that an aborted fetus that is on that — in that image? 
DALEIDEN: You know, I’m actually in the studio, I don’t have a visual of what you’re showing me. 
CUOMO: You know what I’m talking about David. It’s a miscarriage. You know the mother was interviewed. You know you didn’t ask her for permission for it but that is beside the point. 
DALEIDEN: That’s not what Carly Fiorina was referencing. Carly Fiorina was referencing the sequence in our video that shows footage of a born alive infant from a late term abortion actually moving in a specimen pan while Holly O’Donnell — who used to work at stem express — is talking about the harvesting of a brain of an infant of the exactly same gestational age — 
CUOMO: So you think it’s a different image than the one that was pointed out — 
DALEIDEN: Yeah, if you’re showing the image of the Walter Fretz right now that is not the image. 
CUOMO: I don’t know now the names. I don’t own the material the way you do. I just know what I’ve seen. I know it comported with what Carly Fiorina was describing and that it seems like something that was certainly taken out of context by whoever put the video together. Because the mother says — the mother says — you know what I’m talking right? There was a mother who had a miscarriage, a stillborn, and you used that in the video right? — 
DALEIDEN: Yeah I’ve spoken with Lexi Fretz, the mother. And absolutely images where used to illustrate 
CUOMO: And what do you use it to show? To show what?DALEIDEN: Used to illustrate exactly — exactly the kind of late second trimester baby, fetus, that we’re talking about in these cases of organ harvesting. 
CUOMO: But if you’re talking about organ harvesting and the abortions and how terrible they are, why would you use a stillborn fetus, which is not a function of an abortion? 
DALEIDEN: Do you think the fetuses are different somehow? It is the same gestational age. It’s the same baby whether it’s born dead or alive. It’s the same kind of infant. 
CUOMO: Absolutely. It is also completely irrelevant to the point you are trying to make, which is look what they do to these babies. It was bornstillborn. It was not aborted. Doesn’t that matter to you if you are talking about abortion? 
DALEIDEN: What — What I think what matters is the fact that this — that’s an example of an 18 to 19 week fetus, which is the exact same gestational age that Planned Parenthood routinely aborts and harvests the organs from.
CUOMO: Right but you used it as an example of look at the babies that they abort. Look how its a real person, look how it is, look what they do. But it wasn’t aborted. Isn’t that misleading? 
DALEIDEN: No. Because the subject, the creature that is being aborted is the same — the same kind of thing. It is the same kind of fetus. That is not misrepresenting at all.
CUOMO: It is not a creature. It is not a thing. It is a little person. And the point is, if you want to represent a little person, do it fairly, because this is such an emotional thing. It is so religious for people. It’s so moral for people. That baby was not aborted. It matters in the context of your conversation.

It is without questions ridiculous that some are guiding many in our nation as such.
