MSNBC's Joy Reid: 'Absolutely False' Planned Parenthood Sold Baby Parts

No one can in good faith dispute that Planned Parenthood sold baby body parts. It has been carefully documented. And there's that video of a Planned Parenthood official fantasizing about buying a Lamborghini with the proceeds. The capper is that PP President Cecile Richards announced not long ago that PP would no longer take money for body parts. As Michelle Malkin marvelously put it in her headline: "Planned Parenthood will stop taking payment for baby parts their defenders said they never sold."

Note my trick phrasing: no one "in good faith" can dispute that PP sold baby body parts. That excludes MSNBC's Joy Reid. On MSNBC this morning, when Kellyanne Conway, head of a pro-Cruz super PAC, attempted to raise the issue of PP's sale of baby body parts, Reid repeatedly shut her down: "That story was false. That story was false. That story was absolutely false. It was a false story . . . that story was false, so that's not a factor."


KELLYANNE CONWAY: Majority of women in this country, whether you're pro-choice or pro-life, were appalled to see what was selling baby body parts by Planned --

JOY REID: That story was false. That story was false. That story was absolutely false. It was a false story. 

CONWAY: If we're just going to have this screed about Ted Cruz is bad for women -- and Hillary Clinton is going to get off scot-free. 

REID: But that story was false, so that's not a factor.
