Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh lambasted Planned Parenthood Federation President Cecile Richards on Monday for her comments in a recent television appearance that the "most disgusting part" of undercover sting videos of organization officials was the deceit pro-life activists used to obtain and edit them.

"They didn't edit the video," said Limbaugh. "All three hours of these videos are alive and able for people to see, more than the babies in the womb ever were."

All three hours of these videos are available, unedited, online, said Limbaugh, blaming the "drive-by" media for editing the clips.

One video shows their conversation with Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood's senior director of medical services; the other is with Dr. Mary Gatter, one of the organization's medical directors.

In both videos, the Planned Parenthood officials discuss the amounts the group charges to provide the organs and the abortion procedures used to obtain the organs.

"The only people that are handling in these videos are the undercover folks who are absolutely trying to entrap doctors, and they were completely unsuccessful," Richards complained to ABC "This Week" host George Stephanopoulos. "That's why they're showing these highly edited videos. This entire effort is a complete political smear campaign in order to cut off funding for basic healthcare for women in America: Planned Parenthood."

"Damn right, that's what it's about!" Limbaugh said. "There's no reason taxpayers ought to be paying for this."

Richards also denied that abortions are performed in "less crunchy" ways so organs can be harvested, telling Stephanopoulos that the officials' comments were taken out of context and that "these folks lied, lied to gain access to clinics."

"We have heard this before," said Limbaugh. "It's a standard response technique that the left uses. Rather than discuss the substance of what an expose has shown, attack the motives of the people that did the expose. She doesn't realize how absolutely insincere she sounds. She doesn't realize how easy it is to spot that she's lying."

If the spots were taken out of context, he contended, "then Planned Parenthood would not be conducting specific abortions to harvest organs for sale, and they are."

He also questioned why Washington's Republicans aren't coming out on the matter.

"This is so far beyond the social issues," he said. "If that's the only way you see this, you need a wake-up call. The Republicans can't even mount an insincere statement of opposition to this just to placate people, much less real opposition to it? It's just too weird."
