9. The right-wing creators of these videos are relying on the "ick factor" to upset people

with these videos- just like how the right for years made people uncomfortable about gays and lesbians by playing up/emphasizing same-sex behavior, which most people don't like to think about, especially in regards to gay men (even though many heterosexuals engage in the same sex acts). People may be pro-choice but may not like to think too much about the actual procedure and the nitty-gritty details of the disposal of the resultant medical waste, especially when they are being labled as "baby parts", which conjures up a whole other set of gruesome images in people's brains even if it is not accurate. If that's what they mean by being "disturbed" by the videos, I can understand that and it shouldn't make it impossible to still maintain support for PP. If what they mean is that they think that PP is doing something wrong, I'm not sure about that, especially with them having been edited like they were. Also, I have to keep asking, if this group is alleging CRIMINAL behavior by PP, then why did they not turn this information over to law enforcement IMMEDIATELY as they should have? I see videos like this as being akin to entrapment- asking people hypothetical questions and then using edited footage of them answering those questions as "evidence" that there is something illegal/immoral/unethical going on. If PP is supposedly profiting off fetal tissue donation, where are the receipts, transactions history, etc.? As a concerned citizen, that is the sort of proof that I would need to see before condemning PP, cutting off their funding.
