Defaming PP tapes are proven to have been altered

Three teams of forensic experts, using special video software, have examined the video tapes used by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) to defame Planned Parenthood. Their report concludes that:
"CMP edited content out of the alleged 'full footage' videos, and heavily edited the short videos so as to misrepresent statements made by Planned Parenthood representatives.   In addition, the CMP transcript [of one tape] differs substantially from the content on the tape. . . .

"[T]hey have no evidentiary value in a legal context and cannot be relied upon for any official inquiries . . . .  The videos also lack credibility as journalistic products."
For this, Republicans want to cut off funds to Planned Parenthood -- funds that support the 93% of non-abortion health care that, for some women, is the only health care they receive.
