Sorry liberals, Carly Fiorina was right about the Planned Parenthood video

The left has come unhinged over Carly Fiorina’s accurate portrayal of Planned Parenthood at Wednesday’s night’s debate. At the debate she described “a fully formed fetus on the table, it’s heart beating, it’s legs kicking” while Planned Parenthood ghouls discuss how to keep it alive so they can harvest its brain. To refresh your memory, here’s the video:

This, naturally, has thrown the left into a state of apoplexy. “It doesn’t exist”, they claim. Carly Fiorina made it up. It’s a figment of Fiorina’s “fevered imagination.” And so on. Examples?

Amanda Marcotte, Slate:

Despite Fiorina’s insinuations to the contrary, many people have, in fact, watched not just CMP’s edited videosbut the entire, unedited videos, and continue to be pro-choice anyway—and not just because they missed the part with the legs kicking (which doesn’t exist!). It’s because the facts remain unchanged.

Andrea Peyser, New York Post:

There’s one problem. A video showing a fully formed fetus on a table may have been a figment of Fiorina’s fevered imagination. Each video made by an anti-abortion group, The Center for Medical Progress, merely shows people talking. Confronted with a report to that effect posted on Vox.com by a woman who watched all 12 hours of video, Fiorina said Thursday on ABC News, “Rest assured, I have seen the images that I talked about last night.’’

Washington Post:

Fiorina might have trouble finding this video to show to Clinton. No video has surfaced showing the scene Fiorina describes taking place inside a Planned Parenthood facility.

Irin Carmon, MSNBC:

One problem: No such video exists.

There’s plenty more, but you get the point. Here’s the problem for the Planned Parenthood apologists: The video Fiorina described does in fact exist. Via Mollie Hemingway at the Federalist, I hasten to warn you that this video is extremely graphic. If that’s going to be a problem for you, don’t watch. You’ve been warned. That said, if you forward to about the 5:55 mark, you’ll see the aforementioned “figment” of Carly Fiorina’s imagination with your own eyes.
