GOOD NEWS UPDATE:
This just received by Erick Erickson from the Coca Cola Company:
Coca-Cola was listed as a corporate supporter of Planned Parenthood. They were on Planned Parenthood’s website. Various other outlets had attached Coca-Cola to Planned Parenthood.
This morning I received this email to my radio station’s email account. Coke will not contribute to Planned Parenthood and will not match employee contributions to the organ harvesters either.

For the first time in the history of Murder Incorporated, also known as the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA), they appear to be genuinely concerned that the truth may finally come out.
Since its beginning, the right has been railing against them, as merely an abortion factory and nothing else. The lefts rebuttal has always been that abortion is just a small part, and that they are really all about women’s health. As if there were no Planned Parenthood, where would women go for screenings and advice? Of course the answer is the local clinic which do all they do and more, save for sucking out fetuses.
There have been calls to shut down, or at least defund them in the past, but the issue never garnered enough support, or sufficient outrage. Well, the times they are a changing, thanks to the work of the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) and the videotape evidence they’ve presented thus far.
But the next video, of several more to be released, may serve as the proverbial “nail in the coffin,” in that those in the know are hinting that it involves the actual dissection and harvesting of an aborted baby.
So Planned Parenthood, and the supporters of the radical left’s religious sacrament, have begun to circle the wagons. Thus far Planned Parenthood’s written response to the videos is that they are “deeply concerned about the infiltration of Planned Parenthood and its affiliates. At this point, we do not know the full extent of Biomax’s illicit conduct. We believe that on at least one occasion a representative from Biomax was shown a highly sensitive area in a clinic where tissue is processed after abortion procedures.”
Biomax is the fictitious company created by CMP to infiltrate Planned Parenthood.
Now hold on. What have we on the right been complaining about for years, particularly under the Obama administration? That’s right – unwanted and unwarranted surveillance. And the lefts response has always been, if you have nothing to hide, you should have nothing to fear. Well here you go. What has Planned Parenthood to hide? If it’s nothing, then what’s the problem?
I guess there might just be a problem, because the Democrat defenders are beginning to pipe up. California Democrat Rep. Scott Peters said, “It’s got a Benghazi feel to it, for me,” as if Benghazi wasn’t and isn’t a scandal.
Another far left Democrat, Rep. Barbara Lee, also from California said Republicans have “been attacking Planned Parenthood for years. They’ve been calling for investigations for years.”
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council is calling on all members of Congress to return the almost $88,000 in campaign contributions given to them by PPFA.
Okay – hold on again. We the taxpayers are forced to give Planned Parenthood over a half a billion dollars every year and they are allowed to turn around and line the pockets of leftist politicians? Something is seriously wrong with that.
On Tuesday, House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer defended Planned Parenthood. He said: “I know there have been controversies, national controversy over these tapes that pertain. I haven’t reviewed the tapes, but I read articles on them. But I’m not going to jump to conclusions. But I will say that I reject any premise that Planned Parenthood is harvesting fetal organs, or body parts, anything.”
So he hasn’t reviewed the tapes, but has read articles. Gee, I wonder which articles – the New York Times, Huffington Post, ThinkProgress or Abortion Quarterly?
And, Mr. Hoyer, it appears you have jumped to a conclusion – that Planned Parenthood is completely innocent.
I wonder – when it’s proven that Murder Inc. has been doing everything that’s been claimed and more, will these Democrat apologists admit they were wrong or, like Illinois Democrat Jan Schakowsky, simply say that “Planned Parenthood’s baby parts business plan ‘is not illegal.’”
If they say anything, it will be the latter.
