"The behavior we saw in the videotape was egregious and repugnant," spokemsan Stuart Schear told the news agency. He said Woodruffs actions were "completely inexplicable and inconsistent with what Planned Parenthood does."
Planned Parenthood also denounced the videotaping as an an astoundingly cynical form of political activity.
Live Actions nationwide sting hit 12 clinics in Virginia, Indiana, New York, New Jersey, Washington, D.C., and Arizona between Jan. 11-15.
Woodruff was caught on tape providing the two undercover operatives with ways to disguise the age of the alleged prostitutes, who, if real, would have been victims of statutory rape.
Among other things, Woodruff told the undercover operatives that we want as little information as possible. She also advised the undercover operatives how to obtain cheap contraceptives by pretending they are students: "[J]ust kind of play along that they're students we want to make it look as legit as possible."
Woodruff also advised:
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 doesnt matter what they speak if were going to have it translated, they just have to be aware, that they have to be careful with whatever you know, Im not going to be like leading Im dont want to get anybody in trouble
Even if they lie, just say, "Oh hes the same age as me, 15,"its just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesnt matter if their partners the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report. Like on the paperwork theres going to be a point that asks, uh, like are you sexually active, stuff like that if theyre 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 dont want to be involved.
Even worse, Woodruff explained how to keep the sex money rolling in after the alleged prostitutes had an abortion. Because an abortion means the prostitute cannot partake of sexual intercourse for a few weeks, she advised that any sex should be from the waist up.
The video recordings came from Live Action, the pro-life group headed by Lila Rose, who has been repeatedly exposed Planned Parenthoods Mephistophelian operations. Said Rose:
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 dont 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.
Defund Planned Parenthood
According to LifeNews.com, the videos have inspired pro-life activists. They want to defund Planned Parenthood, which receives some $363 million annually in taxpayer funding.
Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., has introduced legislation to defund the organization.
In his floor speech on an amendment to Title X family planning programs, Pence explained that Planned Parenthood is the largest provider of abortion services as well as the largest recipient of federal family planning funds.
The Pence amendment before the Congress today simply states none of the funds made available under this act shall be available to Planned Parenthood for any purpose under Title X of the Public Health Services Act.
The largest abortion provider in America should not also be the largest recipient of federal funding under Title X, as I believe a majority of the American people would attest. The time has come to deny all federal funding to Planned Parenthood of America.
The nations largest abortion mill, Planned Parenthood brags of murdering 324,008 unborn children in its 85 affiliated offices during 2008. Thats 888 abortion every day of the year.
Although Title X funds may not be used in programs where abortion is a method of family planning, according to the federal Department of Health and Human Service, which administers Title X, it is clear that Planned Parenthood, notching 888 abortions every day, does exactly that.
Thus, Pences amendment, which was defeated 247-183 in July 2009.
Pro-Lifers Comment On Live Action Video
Pro-life activists were aghast at Live Actions video. Speaking to LifeNews.com, Susan B. Anthony List president Majorie Dannenfelser said [t]he exploitive roots and track record of Planned Parenthood is a largely untold story that now cannot be ignore. The horror of the logic behind Planned Parenthoods founding has come to roost in this modern form: it is the primary partner of those who degrade and exploit women.
Keep in mind that Planned Parenthood is a business making a very clear business decision. Abortion is its most lucrative "service," and like all businesses, Planned Parenthood is simply maximizing its profits from its primary moneymaker.
This becomes macabre when one stops to consider that Planned Parenthood is in the business of killing preborn children.
Planned Parenthoods Ugly Face
As The New American reported last week, Live Action has repeatedly documented Planned Parenthoods record on abortion and contraception when it comes to minors and blacks.
The group has 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 a donation from a contributor who want their gifts specifically used for the abortion of black babies.
This last is no surprise, as Planned Parenthood was founded by the eugenicist and free-love advocate Margaret Sanger. She and her cohort conceived something called The Negro Project to limit the growth of the black population.
Sanger thought blacks and immigrants were "human weeds" and that "the most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it."
