February 10, 2011 – New undercover audio released today by Live Action reveals yet another Planned Parenthood clinic, this time in Washington, D.C., more than willing to aid and abet a self-identified sex trafficker exploiting underage girls, including girls from other countries. A woman posing as a prostitute and “manager” of young girls for “sex work” meets with a staffer at Planned Parenthood’s Egypt Center on Minnesota Avenue, NE, in Washington, D.C. The Planned Parenthood staffer counsels the sex trafficker on how to get the girls tested, the best way for them to get an abortion and how to work the system if they don’t have health insurance.
Excerpt 1: Underage? No insurance? No problem.
PP: Um, but I would recommend them come in all alone with this I mean, it doesn’t matter if it’s on the same day, their slots-
Prostitute: Oh, ok
PP: just make them appointments, and if they don’t have insurance-
PP: Because they’re teens, we’ll put them under the teen thing –
Prostitute: Ok, teen years have teen servi-services
PP: Yeah and we’ll waive like a $5 or $10 donation with them.
Excerpt 2: “If they need an abortion.”
Prostitute: And then the same thing maybe if they need an abortion or something?
Well, what’s the process for that?
PP: For that, we don’t do it but we give referrals to the other ones –so on the card –
Prostitute: Oh, on the card, yes –
Prostitute: Oh, ok
PP: Yeah, I just, I know that they have reduced fees through, um, people that’s, like you know, low income. It’s normally $297, for actual procedure.
Prostitute: Ok, a hundred- $297?
PP: Yeah, yeah they take it down, from-
“The pattern in DC, just miles from Capitol Hill and the White House, is clear: presented with information that underage girls are being exploited for commercial sex, Planned Parenthood’s again shows its willingness to aid and abet sex traffickers,” Said Lila Rose, president of Live Action. “An institutional crisis has consumed Planned Parenthood at the highest levels. The reason their story has changed five times in reaction to our investigation is because they know they’re guilty.”
“Sex trafficking in the U.S. has increased dramatically in recent years, and the pattern revealed by our investigation shows sex traffickers have no better friend than Planned Parenthood. Untold damage has already been done to countless girls and young women, whose safety and health are clearly at risk because organizations like Planned Parenthood provide confidentiality and safe haven for sex traffickers,” Rose said.
Since February 1, 2011, Live Action has released footage from New Jersey, Virginia, and New York Planned Parenthood clinics, all of which have been met by an ever-changing defense from Planned Parenthood. These replies amount to a list of deceptions:
