Anti-abortion group warns it has more controversial videos

Washington (CNN) - An anti-abortion group that released two controversial undercover videos from a months-long investigation of abortion service providers has vowed to soon put out six more - perhaps releasing a third as early as this week.

The group, Live Action, claims that all of the videos will show varying degrees of an illegal act: abortion clinic workers admitting to being willing to kill babies who are born alive after botched abortions.

    Fact: even assuming what's being presented is true and not a stilted, edited piece of propaganda, individual doctors or lesser clinicians misunderstanding or mis-stating the correct, legally required reactions to a "survived abortion" or committing heinous illegal acts such as those of which Gosnell has been accused (which really have nothing to do with the abortion debate if he's truly that deranged)...NONE OF THAT changes your Constitutional right to choose. It would merely suggest a need for better regulatory practices, oversight and enforcement....again, if true and not edited into becoming a false representation.

    Of course, that just highlights that conservatives/GOPers/Teatrolls are ever so willing to talk about strict "big government" regulation of private industry and heavy-handed enforcement thereof, even at the risk of your Constitutional rights, when it's something they have a problem with. Ask them how much they want that kind of strict, heavy-handed approach towards Wall Street and the practices that consistently cause cyclical recessions once a decade and they'll fill their manpampers over it.

    Kermit Gosnell

    A name democrats are so proud of.

    I'm sure the MSM will try their hardest to contain these videos considering they've done it with the Kermit Gosnell situation.

    If things are truly happening the way Lila Rose and James O'Keefe say they are, why are ALL the ever videos presented edited?
    Show the raw stock and make the point...what, the raw film doesn't show what you say it shows on the edited film?
    That would make you a liar using out of context remarks and other words, perfect for Fox and the rest of the echo chamber.

    Some people (Democrats) support these baby murderers.

    And this same crowd shouts that gun control will save children's lives!
    What a bunch of tools!

    Please do tell why the MSM is avoiding the Kermit Gosnell issue like it's the plauge? Everyone knows they are.

    Sorry, but amateur videographer James O'Keefe has made me cynical about news like this. In any case, one alleged psycho doesn't typify the whole bunch. Right, gun nuts?

    Sebelius and Pelosi both support Partial Birth Abortions.

    Why do democrats protect people that perform PBA's when neither one is in danger?

    Dear California the prolific poster, Gosnell is a murder suspect, not an abortion suspect. That means he's charged with murder not abortion. You'd like them to be the same thing but the law of the land says differently.
    Keep abortion legal, safe and rare.

    I hear it said about guns that if I don't like them, don't buy one....
    You don't like abortion, then don't have one....

    Good for Live Action. More people need to understand the heavy consequences of choosing an abortion. To visually see it is to understand It is murder, plain and simple.

    Actually California, that is a lie. I haven't heard ONE person support this monster. Stop repeating Fox lies, they just make you sound crazy. Like most republicans.

    More edited fantasy from the Right. As these transcripts indicate this stuff simply doesn't happen. Playing "what-if?" is great, just don't try to build policy on that slope.

    Meanwhile, the GOP trashes half of the populations' legal rights over theoretical zygotes' rights. That's small government in action-right? And they'll wonder why they are perceived as too radical to get elected.

    In the Gosnell trials the lawyer tried to bring up that the prosecution was racist.

    There's literally no limit as to how far demco\\ocrats will go.

    If he is found guilty of first-degree murder, Gosnell, who is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, could be sentenced to death.

    Whoa! They have video of people saying "they would be willing?" What about video of them admitting they had? There's a big difference. Also, where did this issue of botched abortions and live infants come from, anyway? I'd like to see some legal documentation on the occurrence. What Gosnell did was murder, but implying that it is common smells like politics.

    They can come up with all the videos they want; that train left the station.

  21. Ghostwriter are so right.

    My question goes back to the edited video. Who in their right minds would allow an editted video as evidence? That will get it thrown out

    And if they actually broke the law, why wait to release the videos?

    The problem I have with these "pro-life" people is that they don't fully consider the consequences of what they are asking for. They are also only being pro-birth since many are for the death penalty. I'd like to know if they are willing to take care of all the babies that are going to be born if abortions stop. If they aren't, then they can't really expect people to do as they want them to do.

    Bowel movements and vomiting are unpleasant, too. But they're legal. Get over it.

    Too funny, California. "Pro life or pro death."

    It's a legal choice. Drive you crazy, obviously!
