First, Planned Parenthood’s CEO apologized for the undercover videos exposing its trafficking of aborted baby body parts. Then it backtracked and claimed the videos were “heavily edited.” Now, it’s saying the videos were entirely “faked.”

The undercover videos by the Center for Medical Progress have damaged the abortion giant’s already shady reputation. Since last summer, CMP has released a dozen undercover videos showing various Planned Parenthood employees discussing the sale of aborted babies body parts. These videos have prompted numerous state and federal investigations, as well as efforts to ban the sale of aborted babies’ body parts and end taxpayer funding to the abortion chain.

Planned Parenthood has been trying without success to discredit the videos. Several forensic analyses of the undercover videos, including one by Planned Parenthood, found no “widespread evidence of substantive video manipulation,” LifeNews reported.

Perhaps the abortion group hopes people have forgotten the results of these forensic analyses. A report on Twitchy points out how the abortion business recently published a series of tweets describing the undercover videos as “fake”:

But followers on Twitter did not let Planned Parenthood get away with it:


For a while, Planned Parenthood was describing the undercover videos as “heavily edited,” a deceptive line that the mainstream media has repeated often. However, CMP leader David Daleiden and his fellow undercover investigators maintain that they conducted and reported about their undercover investigation the same way other journalists do. Mollie Hemingway, senior editor at The Federalist, pointed out on Monday how a new 60 Minutes segment used similar methods to CMP while investigating a Republican call center where members of Congress spend time raising money for their campaigns:

Perhaps Planned Parenthood thinks it can get away with calling the CMP videos “fake” because it has the mainstream media on its side. But it is becoming more difficult to deceive the American people as state and federal investigations uncover new evidence exposing Planned Parenthood’s deceptive and life-destroying practices.
