The fact that the Planned Parenthood videos of recent infamy have been widely discredited was no problem for Senator Ted Cruz; he was happy to continue spreading the lie that Planned Parenthood sells dead “baby parts.”
“…I’m proud to stand for life. These Planned Parenthood videos are horrifying. I would encourage every American to watch these videos. See senior Planned Parenthood callously, heartlessly bartering and selling the body parts of human beings. And then ask yourself, are these my values, these are horrifying,” said Cruz during the debate last night. “On these videos Planned Parenthood also essentially confesses to multiple felonies. It is a felony, with ten years jail time, to sell the body parts of unborn children for profit. That’s what these videos show Planned Parenthood doing.”
Nevermind that none of what Cruz is claiming is true. It wouldn’t play well with his narrative of hate and fear for Cruz to bother with being accurate.
