According to Democrats, an organization that dismembers children then sells the body parts is the real victim here.
A group of House Democrats have responded to the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood executives haggling over the price of aborted baby parts, by calling for an investigation … into the organization that exposed them.
The Dems have asked U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch to launch an investigation into the Center for Medical Progress – the group that created the undercover films – to determine if any federal or state laws were violated, according to the Huffington Post.
House Dems just sent letter to AG Lynch asking for probe into Center for Medical Progress over its sketchy Planned Parenthood videos.

Following comments from Lynch that the Department of Justice would investigate “all aspects” of the scandal, Illinois Democrat Rep. Jan Schakowsky said in a statement that she would like the DOJ to focus on the possibility that the creators of the video may have engaged in fraud.
“I am deeply concerned about the allegations that federal and state laws were violated in an attempt to attack Planned Parenthood,” she said, adding that the video was a “coordinated” attempt to discredit Planned Parenthood’s “critical” work.
Selling aborted baby parts for profit is apparently not nearly as worrisome to Schakowsky as the possibility of a “vast right-wing conspiracy.”
Judging by social media’s reaction to the Huff Post’s story, an investigation into the undercover investigators might not be the best way to sweep Planned Parenthood’s “baby-parts-for-sale” scandal under the rug.
As one user put it, “beyond insane” sums it up pretty well.
In your opinion @jbendery who’s sketchy, the group videoing or the people harvesting baby parts? Just your opinion please.

Treating aborted babies as a way to turn a profit earns deafening silence from liberals.
But exposing the depraved practice?
Well, that’s just criminal, according to Democrats.
