FINALLY! Planned Parenthood exposed on mainstream television.
Last week, in an episode of The Good Wife, CBS stood up to Planned Parenthood and powerfully defended free speech rights. CBS should be commended for highlighting Planned Parenthood’s abominable disregard for human life and the liberal establishment’s attempt to silence pro-life advocates.
In the Good Wife episode “Restraint,” the actors recreated the drama from early this year when Planned Parenthood was exposed for selling baby body parts. In the episode, an undercover group, Citizens for Ethical Medicine, releases videos of an abortionist cavalierly discussing selling baby body parts while eating frozen yogurt.
The portrayal closely reflects the first video released by the actual Center for Medical Progress that exposed Planned Parenthood abortionist Dr. Deborah Nucatola offering to sell baby parts for $100 per specimen. The actress echoed Nucatola, saying she would alter typical abortion procedures in order to move the unborn baby into a better position to preserve its organs for harvest.
In the episode, pro-abortion character Diane Lockhart initially dismisses the videos as propaganda. But after a judge grants an emergency hearing to ban the videos, Diane takes action. She believes in protecting freedom of speech and decides to defend the rights of the prolife group. At every turn, the liberal establishment tries to silence the prolife whistleblowers. At one point, the judge hearing the case calls Diane into his office and tells her to drop the case entirely, saying: “I want you to stop trying to make this work. So let’s go back out there, put this to bed, and make sure those videos never see the light of day.”
The events depicted in the episode eerily reflect attempts by the actual liberal establishment to silence pro-life advocates. In late July the Los Angeles Superior Court issued a restraining order preventing the Center for Medical Progress from releasing certain videos that exposed officials from StemExpress purchasing aborted baby parts from Planned Parenthood. Once the restraining order was lifted, the Center for Medical Progress exposed StemExpress and Planned Parenthood eager to conduct “bulk business” in aborted fetal tissue.
“Planned Parenthood has real volume because they are a volume institution,” said CEO of StemExpress Cate Dyer. She said her organization planned to receive another “50 livers this week."
After the videos were released this summer, most major media outlets remained completely silent. This was unacceptable. In this episode of the Good Wife, CBS chose to stand up to Planned Parenthood and the liberal establishment. They should be recognized and thanked for their excellent portrayal of this issue.
