The media are leaving out one critical detail about the Democrats defending Planned Parenthood’s actions.

For The Hill, staff writer Sarah Ferris wrote “Several Dems defend Planned Parenthood.” In it, she quoted “several House Democrats” defending Planned Parenthood after an undercover video appeared to show an executive reveal how clinics procure and sell aborted babies’ body parts. But what she didn’t say was that the three Democrats she cited received nearly $43,000 from Planned Parenthood during election cycles. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which lists Planned Parenthood donations from 1990 through the 2014 elections cycles, Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.), Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) and Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) received $42,913 from the abortion giant.

None of the three Democrats had watched the video, Farris reported, but they offered her their comments.
