In a statement released yesterday Planned Parenthood said:
Planned Parenthood of New York City has reviewed this video carefully, and it is clear that the video cannot be trusted. The conversation as portrayed on this doctored videotape is not accurate.
They go on to state:
These tapes are clearly doctored and cannot be trusted.
In the statement Planned Parenthood fails to point to anything specific in the video that was doctored. How can one judge for themselves whether something is doctored when Planned Parenthood won’t even say what they think is doctored?
The full uncut video and accompanying audio is embedded below for your viewing:
We have even released the full uncut tape of the 2nd camera angle and accompanying audio as well:
And finally the clinic visit was also recorded with an audio recorder. That audio in mp3 format can be downloaded here.
Anyone can compare these 3 separate recording streams and see that they are synchronous and accurate.
Planned Parenthood, you have made the accusation that our tape was doctored while offering no evidence of doctoring whatsoever. Your desperate attempt to smear our student group, Live Action, to defend your organization’s actions of supporting child sex traffickers speaks volumes about who you are. Instead of reforming your ways to ensure that young girls are not trafficked, your focus is on avoiding scrutiny and keeping your government funding.
You could have admitted your mistakes from the beginning and opened yourself up to real accountability that would have ensured that minors are protected. Instead you have chosen to defend the indefensible and hurl wild accusations at the expense of ensuring that real little girls are protected. Your reaction shows that your problems are not your front-line staff but rather your management that isn’t willing to take child trafficking seriously and do the right thing.
