On Thursday, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest admitted to using talking points from Planned Parenthood to defend the organization. Earnest used the talking points when asked about the recent undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood's harvesting and selling of aborted baby parts.
“I’m merely repeating what I’ve seen that they [Planned Parenthood] have said,” Earnest said.
Earnest said that the undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood harvesting and selling aborted baby parts are "fraudulent” and a "tried-and-true tactic of extremists on the right.”
“There is ample reason to think that this is the tried-and-true tactic from some extremists on the right to edit this video and selectively release an edited version of the video that grossly distorts the position of the person who is actually speaking on the video,” Earnest said.
