Richmond Virginia Planned Parenthood Clinic Shows Willingness to Aid and Abet Sexual Exploitation of Minors

Abridged video below. The full, unedited video is the 2nd video embedded in this post.

February 3, 2011 – Just days after an explosive undercover video showed a Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaching a purported pimp and his prostitute how to cover up their child sex trafficking operation, Live Action releases full footage from a Richmond, VA Planned Parenthood abortion center showing the clinic agreeing to help the pimp get secret abortions and cheap birth control for his trafficked girls. The new video is evidence of the endemic problem of Planned Parenthood’s willingness to aid and abet in the sexual exploitation of minors and young women.

“Planned Parenthood’s problems go far beyond New Jersey. Our new video shows their Richmond clinic willing to aid and abet the sexual exploitation of minors and coaching a pimp about how girls as young as 14 – 15 could circumvent parental consent laws for secret abortions,” said Live Action President Lila Rose. “Watch the video – the clinic worker admits they do this ‘once or twice a month.’ Our investigations of 12 clinics in the past four years show a pattern of Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover-up the sexual abuse of minors and young women.”

“We are sharing the full Richmond footage and transcripts with Virginia law enforcement officials and we are formally asking Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to conduct a statewide investigation of these heinous practices, just as the New Jersey Attorney General is opening
her own investigation into Planned Parenthood’s compliance with the law in her state. Planned Parenthood needs to be held accountable,” Rose continued.

The new Richmond video presents a similar scenario as the New Jersey video. A man posing as a pimp and accompanied by his “bottom girl” seek assistance for getting abortions, STD testing and birth control for girls they “manage” as sex workers, who are from out of the country and as young as 14 to 15 years old.

The investigation continues to unearth alarming evidence that Planned Parenthood, which receives more than $350 million from the American taxpayer every year, is willing to facilitate the sexual exploitation of minors and young women.

The following quotes are excerpts from the Richmond video, after the employee has been told some of the girls are 14 – 15 years old:

“If someone’s a minor and they don’t want their parents to know – parent’s insurance – so an abortion would show up. You fill out paperwork and we kinda help you set it up and we have a confidential hotline that will call you at whatever number you give us and handle the whole thing. So, for someone who’s a minor, that’s a really good thing. We do ‘em like once or twice a month here.”

“We’re pretty good at handling if someone doesn’t want someone else to know.”

“We can talk to them over the phone – everything’s confidential.”

Live Action has previously released more than a dozen hidden camera videos from ten states. This body of visual evidence shows several alarming patterns of illegal Planned Parenthood activities including cover-up of sexual abuse of minors, the skirting of parental consent laws, citing unscientific and fabricated medical information to manipulate women to have abortions, and Planned Parenthood’s willingness to accept donations earmarked to abort African-American babies.

    Wow. That's quite a spin machine you have there, Live Action. According to news reports, the FBI was notified that someone visiting their clinics was claiming to be sexually trafficking minors. How is that "aiding and abetting?"

    And if you have a problem with laws that provide a judicial consent option for pregnant minors, your cause would be better served by taking your hidden cameras to the offices of legislators, would it not?

    I commend your Undercover Operations Department, but your Legal Strategy Team is woefully underfunded and, perhaps, grossly under-educated….

    @Jimi This video was recorded January 12th. Planned Parenthood contacted the FBI January 18th after they detected Live Action investigating another clinic. Is that immediate reporting to law enforcement?

    • Niki

      They contacted local authorities immediately. (The charlottesville staff followed the guy to the parking lot to get his license plate number even.) The FBI was contacted once it was clear this involved multiple states and hence fell under their jurisdiction.

  • FreedomToChoose

    It's ironic that Live Action posted a video that completely proves why P.P. is such a trusted medical provider for millions. As you see here, the P.P. clinician acted professionally, and provided accurate and honest medical information. She is caring, and listens to the "patient." What do you expect? She hears "sex work" and immediately runs out to call the police and have them arrested?…I don't think so. No matter what happened in this video, Live Action was going to find a way to put a negative spin on it. Unfortunately, it was a complete and utter failure.

  • Randy B

    Is anyone surprised that these people are getting death threats? People, we are talking about a WHOLE LOT OF MONEY here. The abortion industry is all about "SHOW ME THE MONEY", nothing more and nothing less. Abortion is one of the sacred cows of the Liberal Left. When you attack the Abortion Industry, they bring all they have against you. The abortionist crowd makes the Acorn crowd look like a bunch of girl scouts when it comes to intimidation and threats.

    Live Action deserves a medal, and I hope they take seriously the death threats from the Putrid Progressive Left. There are people out there that will off someone for a video game, much less to protect a BILLION dollar industry. Even one who's profit margin is determined by the number of babies they kill.

  • TC

    'FreedomToChoose' – you, unfortunately, are WHY PP believes itself to be above the law. While I do not condone abortions, there is a HUGE difference between a young girl coming in VS what happened in this video.

    Your pathetic attempt to put LiveAction down was a complete and utter faliure.

    Medical workers ARE supposed to report ANY suspicious activity of child abuse. Prostitution of a CHILD falls under that. SELLING of a child for sex act falls under that. Get it? They were told to their face what was going on, they chose not to do so. They failed. Yes. WE expect adults to call the police.

    You support PPs action, you deal with your conscience. I don't believe you have one however.

    And by the way, judicial bypass, the way they are using it, IS illegal, so I suspect a great many charges will be coming down the road. And I am glad for it. Whomever took a child to the court and stood in for the legal parent/guardian in absentia (it goes without saying that the legal parent/guardian does NOT have knowledge of this) so the 'child' could get an abortion so their parent/guardian did NOT know will be facing jail time.

    • Niki

      What part of “they reported it to local authorities and federal authorities” are you failing to understand? And they are using judicial authorization precisely as the law requires. Multiple lawyers have reviewed the tape and all concur that the staffer was advising the “patient” accurately and lawfully.

  • TC

    VA law states: http://leg1.state.va.us/000/cod/16.1-241.HTM

    The parent/guardian have the legal right to know. Period.

    Are you suggesting that the law of the land needs to make way for Planned Parenthood to practice this (vaguely defined) professionalism of not calling the police when presented with evidence of a federal crime? I'm sorry, but that makes about as much sense as tossing out loads of physical evidence about the age of the Earth when an allegory suggests Earth is 6000 years old. This claim ought to be regarded as gratuitous and unfounded by both opponents and proponents of abortion.

    Two years ago, when we miscarried yet again and were again encouraged to name our little one….after tears and prayers and prayers and tears, one name came forth. With profound appreciation for your continued zeal for innocence, I am again tonight so blessed and grateful for the brief earthly life, even if only in my womb, of Lila Rose.

    May you continue to know the reality of the Communion of Saints!!!!

  • Father Robert George

    I'm a priest and I'm also a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. One of the issues which public health outreach workers face is how to best approach those in the illegal sex industry. There has been an ongoing lengthy debate of how to handle these issues, especially when many sex workers are underage.

    The issue that I have with how the Planned Parenthood "Counselor" handled the situation in the video is that I heard NO discussion on disease prevention (HIV and other Sexually Transmitted Diseases). Although as clergy, I'm not condoning condoms for birth control, standard STD prevention (recommended by CDC and others) would calls for condom use as one mostly effective way to prevent transmission of HIV and several other STDs.

    While the "Counselor" did talk about STD testing, much of the conversation was focused on how best to procure an abortion for these underage girls. What I wonder (and the video could not show) is if an underage "sex worker" actually went in to the clinic and mentioned that she was part of a "stable", under the thumb of an older "pimp" or "madam" would PP just conduct the tests or would the staff call the police and/or Department of Social Services to report child abuse and get the "sex worker" help.

    It would be appaling if the clinic just did an exam (or God forbid, an abortion) and simply sent an underage "sex worker" back to her pimp.

    • Niki

      Please view the long version of the video (which has been edited so that the audio is out of order from how it was originally recorded). Very little time was spent discussing abortion. The staff person answered his questions and encouraged him to have the young women call or walk in so they could help them directly.

  • Father Robert George

    By the way. fellow readers. by mentioning condoms and standard practice in public health counseling, I do not advocate in any way the evil of abortion.

  • Father Robert George

    I forgot to mention that not only was the STD issue not handled according to standard public health protocols but the "Counselor" spent a great deal of energy discussing how these "underage girls" could obtain an abortion.

    Simply wrong, wrong, wrong.

  • Clarissa

    Do you realize that if you make abortions illegal or too difficult to obtain, you will simply drive it underground and then abortions will be performed under septic, unsanitary conditions with tools such as coat hangers. But if that is really what you ignorant misguided people want, you will have on your hands, the blood of all those killed by underground abortions. Hence, you are making yourselves killers so you had better prepare yourselves to face everything that you people claim that killers will face because you WILL be among them as killers yourselves.

  • tps

    Okay guys. I am pro-life. I have walked the sidewalk and more.

    I have to say that the medical assistant in this video is doing nothing but explaining the services, how to get them. She is not "conspiring" like the manager from NJ. Even if I think judicial bypass is b-ll-sh-t and shouldn't be available, it is not a crime to explain that it is available.

    I sure hope LiveAction has more than this. I really want to see PP get caught in widespread trouble that they can't excuse, but video like this will not help that cause. Claiming a crime when there isn't one will just make us look silly.

  • Clarissa

    No David, Poland and Ireland are not working out. Don’t spread misinformation just to further your misguided special interest.

  • Clarissa

    The catholic church and organized religion are the entities MOST responsible for why abortion takes place in the first place! If organized religion had chosed to face reality rather than bury its head in fantasyland they would have promoted and encouraged PREVENTION OF CONCEPTION. But no, religion refused to accept the simple fact of biology that PEOPLE LIKE TO DO THE NAKED PRETZEL -> FACT, solid fact. Nobody will ever change that fact. Hence, a vast many people do not use contraceptives because the vatican and other religions do not promote use of condoms and other methods to prevent conception. Not a very bright move on the part of organized religion, at all!

  • tps

    @Clarissa:

    Because abortion facilities in the USA are all sanitary and safe and never septic. They never lie. They always get medical help for women with abortion induced injuries, always tell them that elective abortion is linked to infertility, higher cancer risks, depression and anxiety. They always tell the truth about fetal development that the 8 week fetus has a heartbeat and brain waves and pain perception, hands, feet, and beautiful face. They tell them that fetus is Latin and Greek for “child” not “cell-blob.”

    Yes, PP is sooo helpful and honest. Give me a break!!

    Isn’t it interesting that when a fetus is “wanted” it is a baby and treated as such, but the unwanted is “not human” and just cells.

    Last time I checked whether a person had a right to live or not shouldn’t depend on if they were “convenient” or “wanted.” Isn’t it interesting that everyone who is pro-choice is already born…

    Clarissa, first of all I do not see where David mentioned Ireland and Poland.

    Second, where did you hear that Ireland and Poland are not working out? Certainly not from those of the countries, themselves. According to the people and governments of Poland and Ireland, they will NEVER accept abortion as legal – even if the EU tells them they have to, which, so far, the European Courts have only criticized Ireland for making it too difficult for women with health concerns to obtain an abortion. About 90 percent of the people in those countries will not accept abortion. It is not part of our cultures or beliefs. To suggest otherwise shows how little you know of the Irish and the Polish, and shows how disrespectful you are of our cultures, claiming to know something of them that you obviously have not put any research into, save for reading from pro-abort news outlets from outside Ireland and Poland. It is beyond blatant contempt against our cultures, for you to assert such things.

    My family and I live in the Us, but hail from Ireland and are active in causes pertaining to the country. The right to life from conception, and the outlawing of abortion (except in cases where the mother's health is at stake), is part of the Irish Constitution. The section on the life of the unborn child CANNOT be changed or stricken from it.

    Article 40, section 3 of the Bunreacht na hÉireann states, "1° The State guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate the personal rights of the citizen.

    "2° The State shall, in particular, by its laws protect as best it may from unjust attack and, in the case of injustice done, vindicate the life, person, good name, and property rights of every citizen.

    "3° The State acknowledges the right to life of the unborn and, with due regard to the equal right to life of the mother, guarantees in its laws to respect, and, as far as practicable, by its laws to defend and vindicate that right.

    "This subsection shall not limit freedom to travel between the State and another state.

    "This subsection shall not limit freedom to obtain or make available, in the State, subject to such conditions as may be laid down by law, information relating to services lawfully available in another state. "

    In other words, the ONLY way to make abortion legal in Ireland would be to overthrow the government, and install an anti-life dictatorship, which Britain has already done, and is losing – they already lost 26 counties, and they only hold the last 6 by a thread.

    Erin Go Bragh!

    Virginia law allows a minor to get an abortion without parental notice or consent in some cases, including cases in which the minor is emancipated by marriage or other law, where there is abuse/neglect, in an emergency and where a judge authorizes it under a judicial by-pass. The law linked in a post above makes that clear:

    A physician shall not knowingly perform an abortion upon an unemancipated minor unless consent has been obtained or the minor delivers to the physician a court order entered pursuant to this section and the physician or his agent provides such notice as such order may require. However, neither consent nor judicial authorization nor notice shall be required if the minor declares that she is abused or neglected and the attending physician has reason to suspect that the minor may be an abused or neglected child as defined in § 63.2-100 and reports the suspected abuse or neglect in accordance with § 63.2-1509; or if there is a medical emergency, in which case the attending physician shall certify the facts justifying the exception in the minor's medical record.

    @David: Among the many lies Live Action has attached to this video is the slanderous and libelous claim that Planned Parenthood was "aiding and abetting". That is a legal term. And it is being used falsely with malice aforethought. (One could argue that Lila et. al. are simply ignorant of the law, and there is ample evidence to suggest that, in which case such malice would not attach). The point is, though, that to make such an inflammatory claim that the crime of "aiding and abetting" was taking place, one ought to demonstrate complicity. Notifying law enforcement is not an act of complicity. Providing information about legal options is not an act of complicity.

    Furthermore, attaching the labels "pimp" and "prostitute" to the video's subtitles intentionally masks the fact that these actors never identified themselves as a pimp and prostitute.

    If this video were truly allowed to speak for itself, then it would be the non-issue most educated people regard the edited version as. Live Action's agenda can only be served by lies, edits, and a profound misunderstanding of the law. With any luck, the latter will be their undoing. Their decision to retain the services of a law firm was probably a wise one.

    @TC: Read section V of the law you cited.

    • livewell8

      "Live Action's agenda can only be served by lies, edits…," Except the video is 100% full right there for everyone to see.

    Hear, hear sir. I might add, to your spotless analysis, the point that there is no aiding & abetting if there is no crime. And while the acting may be really, really, really, really, really bad, it's not a crime.

  • Ben Cole

    @TC.

    Section V clearly describes circumstances under which parents have no such "legal right." I admit, you did sound persuasive when you attached to the indescribably descriptive term, "legal", and I was very disappointed to learn how completely wrong you were.

    The dialog between proponents of those deemed harmed, i.e., PP and friends of their accusers, Live Action, if that was all we had would be a comfort to me as a supporter the later’s cause. In the video, Amy reference to the lady in the front office as “my partner in crime,” while probably not an actionable admission does indicate a conscience at work, although possibly retired. This blog, this situation, especially the fetal moments in the womb require peace. It is my belief that when total peace is restored to life before birth living after it will become more peaceful. Please accept my prayers for that peace and the good for all who reads this.

    This sounds like several things. I think a business between the manager and clinics but either way if they were prostitutes think the abortion should be done with the consent of the girl and the pimp.

  • Markus Johnson

    Doesnt this all seem to, idk, break the law itself? Planned Parenthood offers confidential work, and if not all then most medical care is confidential and i believe that these hidden videos are also breaking the law and exploiting the patients, while i disagree with what planned parenthood does with this whole affair i believe that these hidden videos are just as bad…
