The average age of entry into child prostitution is 13, and some girls have been subjected to multiple abortions. An encounter with any health care worker should be an opportunity for trafficking victims to get help to escape from slavery. Live Action went undercover to find out how Planned Parenthood would respond to sex traffickers seeking services, including abortions, for their underage sex slaves.
PERTH AMBOY, NJ
A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaches a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers on how to secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their underage female sex slaves, and how to make their whole operation “look as legit as possible.”
Manager Amy Woodruff, LPN, of Planned Parenthood Central New Jersey’s Perth Amboy center, warns the pimp and his prostitute to have their trafficked underage girls lie about their ages to avoid mandatory reporting laws, and advised, “If they’re a minor, just tell them to put down that they’re students.” She says, “For the most part, we want as little information as possible.”
Following the release of the video, Planned Parenthood fired clinic manager Amy Woodruff. Phyllis Kinsler, executive director of Planned Parenthood of Central Jersey, said the following:
“We were profoundly shocked when we viewed the videotape released this morning, which depicted an employee of one of our health centers behaving in a repugnant manner that is inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable.”
The Richmond video presents a similar scenario as the New Jersey video. A man posing as a pimp and 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 Planned Parenthood staffer provides information on types of contraception and how they can get around parental consent laws to obtain abortions for the trafficked minor girls.
Undercover audio revealed yet another Planned Parenthood facility, 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 for STDs, the best way for them to get an abortion, and how to work the system if they don’t have health insurance.
When told by a man posing as a pimp that he needs help with girls he manages as young as 14 to 15 years old, a Bronx, NY, Planned Parenthood staffer is unfazed and offers to go one better: “We see people as young as 13….everything is totally confidential.”
FALLS CHURCH, VA
“The evidence continues to mount and shows a clear pattern where Planned Parenthood is willing to aid and abet the sex trafficking industry. These are abhorrent practices and it is time Planned Parenthood be held accountable.”
– Live Action President Lila Rose
The footage shows a man who identifies himself as a pimp working with underage girls. He seeks assistance for getting abortions, STD testing, and birth control for girls he “manages” as sex workers, who are from out of the country and as young as 14 to 15 years old.
“From the age of 12 up, for birth control, you can just come in and do that. You don’t have to have a parent, OK?”
– Planned Parenthood staffer
