Live Action: Planned Parenthood Caught Again

Written by 

Like the employees of ACORN before it, employees of Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion mill in the country, have been caught on video giving advice to undercover sex traffickers seeking contraception and abortions for fictive underage prostitutes.

Live Action, the pro-life group that has bedeviled Planned Parenthood with secretly recorded videotapes of its employees breaking the laws and peddling false medical information about abortion, released edited and full-length video recordings of the encounters at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Perth Amboy, N.J., early this week.

The chief of Planned Parenthood in New Jersey admitted the employee violated the nationwide abortion mill’s policies and standards.

According to The Associated Press,

[T]he clinic manager advises that the underage girls could lie about their age to lessen the chance of triggering an investigation once they sought health services.

"For the most part, we want as little information as possible," the employee says, according to the video.

The video also depicts the employee suggesting that prostitutes could get cheaper contraception by claiming they were students.

"Yeah, just kind of play along that they're students — we want to make it look as legit as possible," the woman identified as the clinic manager says. …

Responding to the video release, Planned Parenthood issued a statement detailing its efforts to notify state and federal authorities after the recent clinic visits. It said the FBI had been collecting evidence from Planned Parenthood employees and clinics, and reviewing photos of at least one of the persons claiming to be a trafficker.

"Planned Parenthood insists on the highest standards of care, and safeguards the trusted relationship we have with patients, families and communities," the statement said. "What appears on edited tapes made public today is not consistent with Planned Parenthood's practices, and is under review."

Phyllis Kinsler, chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey, added that the clinic employee's behavior, as portrayed on the video, "violates PPCNJ policies, as well as our core values of protecting the welfare of minors and complying with the law, and appropriate action is being taken."

The attorney general for New Jersey is investigating Live Action’s charges.

Live Action’s nationwide sting hit 12 clinics in Virginia, Indiana, New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Arizona between Jan. 11-15.

A spokesman for Planned Parenthood called Live Action’s sting “an astoundingly cynical form of political activity.”

We’ll Keep It Secret

However political, the recordings are damning for an organization that receives more than $350 million annually in government funding.

The employee on the tape, Amy Woodruff, is frank about what the pimps and Planned Parenthood have to do to avoid getting caught. Said Woodruff:

One, minors are always accepted without parental consent. The only thing you do have to be careful is if they are minor, we are obligated, if we hear any certain information to kind of report, so, the first thing that is, what if they do speak English or even Spanish, it doesn’t matter what they speak — if we’re going to have it translated, they just have to be aware, that they have to be careful with whatever — you know, I’m not going to be like leading — I’m don’t want to get anybody in trouble

Even if they lie, just say, "Oh he’s the same age as me, 15,"…it’s just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesn’t matter if their partner’s the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report. Like on the paperwork there’s going to be a point that asks, uh, like are you sexually active, stuff like that … if they’re under a certain age… — you know, me and my other counselor, like for the most part we want as little information as possible — cause we don’t want to be involved.

As well, Woodruff tells the undercover operatives that pretending the prostitutes are students will enable them to get contraceptives more cheaply: “If they’re minors, put down that they’re students,” Woodruff says. “Yeah, just kind of play along that they’re students — we want to make it look as legit as possible.”

Even worse, Woodruff offers advice on how soon the prostitutes can return to work after an abortion and what kind of sex they should offer. “Waist up,” Woodruff advises.

Live Action

Lila Rose, the president of Live Action, said the tapes demonstrate that Planned Parenthood victimizes young girls and knowingly tolerates the sexual abuse of minors to keep its abortion business going.

She told LifeNews.com:

This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Planned Parenthood intentionally breaks state and federal laws and covers up the abuse of the young girls it claims to serve.

Time and time again, Planned Parenthood has sent young girls back into the arms of their abusers. They don’t deserve a dime of the hundreds of millions they receive in federal funding from taxpayers. Congress must cease funding and the Department of Justice should investigate this corrupt organization immediately.

Rose has been giving Planned Parenthood fits for years.

She has video recorded Planned Parenthood staff members offering advice to minor girls seeking abortion after a statutory rape. She also recorded Planned Parenthood staff members peddling false information about the nature of an unborn child and abortion. She even caught staff members accepting donations from a contributor who want their gifts specifically used for the abortion of black babies.
