Andy Richter: Stop ‘Howling’ About ‘Baby Parts’

Comedian Andy Richter slammed anti-abortion activists on Twitter for their hypocritical approach towards Planned Parenthood.

The Hill reports:

Richter’s criticism follows a mass shooting at a Planned Parenthood facility in Colorado Springs, Colo. last week.

Robert Dear, the alleged shooter, reportedly said “no more baby parts” upon entering police custody on Nov. 28.

Dear is accused of killing three people, including a police officer, and wounding nine others after opening fire on the clinic. Police have repeatedly stressed Dear’s remarks may not fully explain his motivation for targeting Planned Parenthood.

Dozens of the organization’s clinics nationwide are now boosting security in the wake of last week’s violence.

Planned Parenthood’s fetal tissue practices gained fierce scrutiny earlier this year following a series of undercover videos from an anti-abortion group.

The graphic clips sparked outrage by showing the organization’s officials discussing abortions and financial aspects of sharing fetal tissue with researchers.

Planned Parenthood has repeatedly denied selling fetal tissue for profit while dismissing the footage as heavily edited and misleading.
