Top Six Planned Parenthood Deceptions

Over the past week, Live Action has released six videos revealing Planned Parenthood’s willingness to aid and abet the sex traffickers of underage girls. Since the beginning of our release, Planned Parenthood has attacked our organization and attempted to discredit the growing evidence of institutional and rampant abuse cover up. Here is a top six list of some of the deceiving statements that Planned Parenthood has made in just the past few days.

Deception 6) “We reported this to the FBI”

Planned Parenthood wrote the FBI a letter a week AFTER our investigation, only after they realized that Live Action had conducted the sting. They say this themselves. As much as they may pretend, Planned Parenthood was not attempting to help send human traffickers to jail; they were attempting to pre-empt the release of Live Action’s footage.

If Planned Parenthood really cared about reporting potential sex traffickers to authorities, they would have called police while the pimp was in the clinic, or immediately after. Not wasting a minute. Planned Parenthood, where are the reports from the now SIX clinics we’ve released, that you immediately called the police?

Why did all your staffers, instead of refusing service or gathering information from the pimp about his sex ring to inform authorities, GIVE the pimp information about how to access the Planned Parenthood system for secret services?

Deception 5) Live Action Videos Are All “Doctored” and a “Hoax”

We have heard this tired claim from Planned Parenthood every time we release a video. Yet every time we’ve released a video, we post the full, unedited footage online for all to see, and send the full, unedited footage to state and federal authorities. Planned Parenthood can’t argue with the full footage.

See Vice-President Stuart Schear on camera claiming our tapes are doctored, then admitting he hasn’t even seen then (link: http://video.foxnews.com/v/4529123/sneak-peek-the-factor-confronts-planned-parenthood/)

Planned Parenthood, if you really think our videos are “fake”, “doctored” and a “hoax”, why did you yesterday claim that you will be retraining your entire staff of 11,000?

Deception 4) “We are retraining our entire staff of 11,000”

First of all, we have heard the “retraining staff” excuse before. When Live Action released undercover footage in December of 2008 showing the sexual abuse cover up of a 13 year old girl at Planned Parenthood, the organization called for “re-training”. Clearly, that re-training (whatever it was) didn’t last very long, if two years later Planned Parenthood workers are caught on tape working with human traffickers to provide services (link: liveaction.org/traffick), ways to get around pesky parental involvement laws that protect children, tax-funded discounts, and even business advice.

But more to the point: Are Planned Parenthood workers “trainable”? Our tapes show them repeatedly and unabashedly doing “business as usual” with the self-disclosed seller of underage girls’ bodies for sex. The brutal business of human trafficking cannot be taken seriously enough.

Yet instead of showing even basic concern for the victims, Planned Parenthood workers across the board are happy to help the serial abuser.

And another important question: Can Planned Parenthood be trusted to train its staff sufficiently? What does it say about an organization’s leadership if their staff–from managers, to supervisors, to clinicians, to staffers–unequivocally and without question show willingness to do secret business with a pimp?

A final question: How exactly will Planned Parenthood be “training” its staff? Will the training be a special seminar on how to recognize Live Action cameras?

Deception 3) Virginia Staff Acted “Professionally”

This is one of the most disturbing statements we have heard yet from Planned Parenthood higher-ups.

Virginia staff, on all four tapes released in Virginia, were very helpful to the self-identified pimp of underage sex slaves. Staffers assured him it was confidential, offered him information on how to get cheaper birth control, on how to get free STD testing, told him how to use the website and phone system. And even coached him how to use judicial bypasses to get secret abortions for his underage sex slaves.

These are the actions that Planned Parenthood is calling “professional”. Does anyone think that it is professional to give a brutal sex trafficker of children advice on how to use the system?

This is not professional; this is criminal. It is criminal and incredibly offensive and harmful to the victims of abuse across our nation.

And keep in mind: If Virginia staff acted “professionally”, then is this how the public can expect Planned Parenthood to “train” their staff of 11,000?

Deception 2) This is an “isolated incident”

A favorite of Planned Parenthood’s. Every time Live Action releases a video (and we’ve released over 16 now), it is “an isolated incident”. Let the facts speak for themselves. Look at the evidence. For over three years our team has been investigating the institutional sex abuse cover up at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics. Even before the human trafficking footage, we released 10 clinics that revealed the sexual abuse cover up of minors as young as 13. In these 10 clinics, we had actors posing as the underage girls, self-reporting abuse and asking for help. In every case, Planned Parenthood worked to cover up the abuse of the underage girl and did not comply with the mandatory reporting laws for sexual abuse. Instead of help and safety, the underage girls are coached by Planned Parenthood staffers on how to cover up abuse and get secret abortions.

Live Action has now released six more clinics in the past week, all showing Planned Parenthood workers, at all levels of the organization, willing to aid and abet the human traffickers of underage girls.

This is an institutional crisis that has engulfed the whole organization. No matter how many times Planned Parenthood’s PR firm says “isolated incident”, the growing body of evidence still stands.

Deception 1) We have a zero-tolerance policy for abuse, and you should trust us

If anyone can still believe this, I don’t know if there is any evidence in the world that will convince them otherwise.

The growing body of evidence reveals that Planned Parenthood unequivocally covers up the sex abuse of young victims and is willing to work with the abusers.  Our undercover actors could not have said who they were and what they represented more clearly.  Planned Parenthood repeatedly looked the other way. It is a federal crime to aid and abet in the trafficking of underage persons. What is a better way to aid and abet a pimp of young girls, than give him all the secret abortions, birth control and the services that a pimp would need to keep his sex slaves on the street?

    Get 'em Lila! Your reporting of this scam is great! I think there's a real shot at taking our federal dollars from them ….FINALLY.

  • gmc907

    Thanks you so much, Lila. Your evidence is solid. Your arguments are focused and concise.

    I think you could teach Laura from Fox News how to ask questions of pro-choicers on her newscast without yelling at them. : ) Your group is organized and talented. Great things will come out of all of your hard work. I'm really excited to see a pro-life organization that really gets how people tick and uses that.

  • blahrahblah

    Solid evidence…sure. Live Action is sickening. I will admit that the incidents filmed are shameful, and give the prochoice movement a bad name, however, Live Action does a really good job of twisting things around to help their cause. NO ONE IS PRO ABORTION. It is a matter of choice, something this country was founded on. "The greatest human rights injustice of our time." I was a victim of rape, and I got pregnant because of it. You are telling me that I should have had to carry that baby, and live with the constant reminder of my violent and shameful past? Being raped wasn't my CHOICE, having an abortion was. If you had it your way, I would have a baby that I couldn't care for, and that was half my violent attacker's. If you had it your way, mothers who could die from pregnancy complications would loose their lives, and then leave their child (if he/she survived) into the hands of the system, the very one that you claim is so broken.
    This country is so divided, you are not helping that.

    • livewell8

      "NO ONE IS PRO ABORTION." Are you sure?

      "I'm definitely pro-abortion"

      "Why I'm Pro Abortion" http://youtube.com/watch?v=n5prYs09Me8

      "This country is so divided, you are not helping that. "
      And the abortion lobby like NARAL, NAF, etc are by pushing for taxpayer funded abortion on demand, and no choice to opt-out of performing abortions?

      • blahrahblah

        Ok, the first one is from the Live Action You Tube channel, and that girl is obviously not the brightest person, and seems to me to be a little intoxicated, people answer questions with the wording that you ask them. The question was if you thought abortion was wrong, she used the question in the answer. That really helps prove your point.
        You are arguing semantics on that one.

        I do not have the choice to opt out of a slew of things the government spends my taxes on that I don't believe in. Like that wasteful war we have been in for so long? How is that any different?

        • livewell8

          You miss my point. My point wasn't that people can or can't opt out, my point was that the abortion lobby is pushing the agenda as well. They are actively working against centers that provide abortion alternatives and they are working to make it so that doctors must perform abortions against their will. My point is that both sides are trying to change things and that it isn't one side the is dividing the country, it is the reality of irreconcilable positions….primarily one side that believes the right to life comes when one is born and the other side the believes the right to life comes before that.

        • pnyikos

          Do you still maintain that no one is pro-abortion?

          I have long debated a highly dishonest pro-abortion person who is proud to call himself pro-abortion. Here is how he reacted to the tragic news about a young Colorado woman being accidentally given an abortifacient by the pharmacist instead of the antibiotic that was prescribed:

          "We can only hope! One last bastard child to infect the world is good
          news. Too bad she wasn't given certain anti-cancer medications instead,
          that would've finished the job properly!

      I am sorry that you had to go through the terrible trauma of rape. Such an act of violence should never happen to anyone.

      When a child is conceived as a result of rape, it is too often a grievous result that this child's life is ended because of the circumstances of their own conception. Why should this child suffer a premature death because of the offenses of their father? This is an innocent. Children are born to all sorts of parents, some with high moral standards, others in the context of adulterous relationships and still others where there is not consent. Nevertheless, these children do nothing to choose who their parents will be.

      I am sorry that you were convinced that there was little hope for this child's future and driven to an abortion.

      There are others who have carried their babies to term and found healing from their trauma in the gift of their children. One story that is powerful is Rebecca Kiessling's who was herself conceived during rape. She now speaks as an advocate for the civil rights and dignity of the unborn.
      http://www.rebeccakiessling.com/

      I really do hope that you come to peace and healing, for the violence done to you twice. No mother should have to endure that.

      The heart of our family goes out to you.

        " Why should this child suffer a premature death because of the offenses of their father?"

        Along your lines of reasoning, women should be forced to endure pregnancy and childbirth in order to save someone's life.

        But why draw the line there? There's nothing to say we shouldn't also force men and women to donate parts of their livers to save lives. (Your liver grows back). It's essentially the same thing: you're saving a life; you're forced to take weeks off work to recover; you endure a few months of discomfort and at least one day of excruciating pain; and you maybe risk some side-effects and long-term damage, but definitely not any worse than pregnancy.

        Why don't we force people to donate livers to save lives? Why don't we force them to donate blood to save lives? The reason is that Americans apparently seem to value something MORE than life: autonomy over our own bodies. For the same reason that we don't legally force someone to donate their blood and organs, we don't legally force women to endure pregnancy and childbirth. Both processes save a life at the expense of taking away autonomy and control over your own body. Explain to me why this example is any different from forcing someone who is raped to bear a child.

    Instead of wasting your time trying to deprive women of thier RIGHT to choose, you should fight for the right to recieve comprehensive sex education, and the right to recieve birthcontrol. It only makes sense, less unwanted pregnancies less abortions.
    how can you blame an entire organization, for the mistakes of a few?

    • farmchick20

      It's not a civil/human right to have sex but not have a baby. A person's right to not be killed for another's convenience, IS a human right.

  • x_x

    They did report it to the FBI…

    You'll need more actual evidence to support the claim that they only reported it because they knew it was fake. Otherwise, the accusations that they knowingly facilitate sex trafficking are pretty weak in my view.

    • livewell8

      They state in their report to the FBI that they think it is Live Action, not real sex traffickers. The fact that it is 4-7 days after the videos were shot is kinda disturbing. The law is most states says reporting should be immediate.

  • rlansfrd

    As far as sex-ed is concerned (and even though it may seem a bit off topic), I am proud to say that the public school district that I teach in DOES teach sex ed as part of their science course. But they teach the only 100% effective method: abstinence until marriage.

    • farmchick20

      That's great! Here's hoping more schools will follow your example.

    • Dan

      Abstinence until marriage doesn’t have a perfect record. There are at least a couple of historical accounts of an engaged woman getting pregnant without any sex, almost causing her future husband to break off the engagement. Now Mary would have been a great candidate for a state funded abortion; she was low income, almost lost her fiance and the governor tried to kill the kid a few years later anyway.
