As Philadelphia abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell went on trial for murder in late April, Live Action, a pro-life group, began releasing hidden-camera videos recorded inside other abortion clinics. The videos were shot by pregnant “investigators” who lured clinic personnel into sham doctor-patient conversations orchestrated to embarrass doctors and their clinics. Live Action edited the hours of raw video (available here, here, and here) into selective highlights, lasting from 30 seconds to several minutes (shown here, here, here, here, and here), which were then heavily promoted and aired on TV news and commentary programs.
Slate went through the raw footage to see what the video editors took out. Above is a highlight reel of what Live Action didn’t want you to see.
