Planned Parenthood deletes offensive “Minions” tweet

2015-07-27_1949

As if Planned Parenthood needed any more heat, it drew fire July 24 for an ill-conceived tweet attacking pro-life undercover investigators who exposed its side business of baby parts trafficking with, of all things, a yellow creature from the children’s movie Minions.

The Washington Times laid out the groaner:

Following widespread criticism after two video clips revealed Planned Parenthood is in the business of selling the organs of aborted fetuses, the organization tweeted an encouraging message to its followers using animation from the new Universal Pictures movie, “Minions.”

“Friends who #StandWithPP: Stay Strong. The anti-abortion minions want to bully us into silence. That’s not going to happen,” the organization tweeted Friday, with and [sic] image of one of the lovable yellow “minions” dropping a microphone…

“The irony of Planned Igorhood posting a clip from a children’s movie! I guess dead conscience is a dead conscience,” one user responded….

In a blog post on Friday, Ms. [Bristol] Palinblasted Planned Parenthood asking, “How ironic is it that Planned Parenthood is using a gif of a minion to attack their critics?

“Can you imagine the folks over at Planned Parenthood, wondering how on earth they can spin themselves out of this mess? I know! Let’s use cute minions to distract people from the fact that we got caught selling dead baby parts!” Ms. Palin wrote.

The gif doesn’t make much sense, really.

Is the Minion dropping the mic supposed to be Center for Medical Progress’s David Daleiden fumbling the investigation? With five federal investigations now either launched or requested in its wake, eight state investigations, 2.6 million views of video #1, and 1 million views of video #2, I don’t think so.

Is it supposed to represent Planned Parenthood deciding to ignore the outcry? With Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards offering her own vapid video in response (to a paltry 235k views), followed by a shaky interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, I don’t think that’s it either.

Minion_angryWhatever, Planned Parenthood’s rattled PR minions finally decided to abandon the ruse of bravado and quietly deleted the tweet today.

Either that or the real Minions threatened to sue.

Fortunately, however, the Wayback Machine has preserved the infamous tweet for posterity, along with some inglorious comments. Click on the link, type “https://twitter.com/PPact/status/624579796153040896″ in the search, and click on July 24, 2015.

VIDEO: Obama goes out of his way to thank Planned Parenthood during height of baby parts scandal

2015-07-27_1000President Obama has a long-standing, super close relationship with Planned Parenthood, most clearly exemplified by his willingness in 2011 to shut down the federal government rather than allow the abortion giant to be defunded.

Obama hasn’t stopped with his own turf. He has also blocked state efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood speculates what we’ll see in upcoming videos, including actual baby dissections for organs

deborahnucatolazPlanned Parenthood has submitted a letter to the House Energy and Commerce Committee refusing to produce its scandalized Chief Medical Director, Deborah Nucatola, at a briefing to answer questions regarding potential illegalities she admitted to in a conversation caught on video by The Center for Medical Progress during an undercover investigation.

In that letter, Planned Parenthood seeks to get in front of further scandal by speculating what it thinks will be on future damaging investigative videos by CMP. This includes an admission that CMP investigators may have video of actual tissue procurement at a PP facility:

Pro-life videos special on Planned Parenthood baby parts scandal

Video-Planned-Parenthood-Doctor-Admits-to-Selling-Aborted-Baby-Body-Parts

by Hans Johnson

We were shocked on July 14 by the blockbuster release of an undercover investigative video showing Planned Parenthood executive and abortionist Dr Deborah Nucatola blithely discussing the value of keeping a baby’s organs intact during a late-term abortion. It was like a new Grimm’s Fairy Tale: “The better to harvest from you”!

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) movingly spoke for many as the news broke on the floor of the House:

Planned Parenthood is trying to derail the convo but NO: Stay. On. Message.

2015-07-15_1654
Planned Parenthood Federation of America
and its allies want desperately to steer the conversation away from its senior medical director, who cheerfully discussed harvesting babies’ livers over some salad and a nice chianti, to borrow a line from Hannibal Lechter.

And away from the fact the abortion giant illegally trafficks baby parts – and commits illegal partial birth abortions to do so.

Planned Parenthood wants to suck us into side debates to get away from the reality of what it does.

The conversation Planned Parenthood wants to derail us to is on the merits of embryonic stem cell and fetal tissue research. Hence, its statement yesterday:

In health care, patients sometimes want to donate tissue to scientific research that can help lead to medical breakthroughs, treatments and cures for serious diseases. Women at Planned Parenthood who have abortions are no different….

And, on cue, Time magazine today:
