The Truth About Planned Parenthood's Recent Actions

Many have posted on our sight and have written me some very direct accusations in defense of Planned Parenthood.

I understand that it is difficult to accept the moral and possibly legal failure of an organization that embodies one's beliefs. Planned Parenthood is the banner carrier for abortion. And for those who advocate for it.

However, I would urge you to take a closer look at what it is that you are defending.

LIFE NEWS has published some clarification on what is happening on the matter from Lila Rose, the founder of Live Action. Please consider this:



Lila Rose: Planned Parenthood Deceives in Sex Trafficking Video Response
LifeNews.com 2/9/11 2:16 PM

The following are six of the top deceptions Planned Parenthood has engaged in its response to the sex trafficking videos.

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 also 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 them. (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” it’s 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, then give him all the secret abortions, birth control and the services that a pimp would need to keep his sex slaves on the street?

  1. Well done Gary. I hope your appeal for a closer look at Planned Parenthood is heeded. Thanks.

  2. Gary, Please look into the WAPREPPlan. This is the plan to make Planned Parenthood as the infrastructure for statewide Sex Education in a formal and institutional way. They will have a resource center that determines what can be taught. This is behind the scenes and there is $6M behind this when you look at 3 sources of funding.

  5. 6) PP reported to the FBI on 1/18, just after Rose's "sting". If a few days is too long to report this, why did Rose sit on the information for several weeks before brining it forward? If, as she claims, aiding pimps of underage "bottom girls" is a regular occurrence at PP, just how many girls were victimized while Rose waited for the most political advantageous moment to release her information?
    How does Rose propose staffer gather information from the alleged pimp without talking to them and gaining their confidence? Also, Rose makes much of PP telling the FBI that this incident was most likely a hoax - would she prefer that PP withhold that information and the FBI divert resources from chasing actual child sex traffickers?

    5)Rose got flat out busted by Media Matters doctoring the audio in her shortened versions of the tapes. Clearly there is dishonest editing going on on her part, furthermore the fact that she is affiliated with noted paragons of dishonest video editing James O'Keefe and Andrew Breitbart, only a fool would accept her claims or her videos at face value. The fact that PP is retraining their staff doesn't mean the video's aren't also dishonestly edited - that's called a red herring.

    4)Every organization has turnover, hence training is an ongoing process. Other than that I don't really see a clear point here. One could also point out that, despite Rose's grandiose claims of exposing criminal activity, past Live Action "stings" have resulted in exactly zero criminal prosecutions.

    3) The Virginia staffer's actions WERE professional and in compliance with the law! No one was coached on how to get a judicial bypass (which is perfectly legal according to Virginia law, despite Rose's false claims that it is circumventing the law), they merely explained how the process works. Anyone following this process would have to convince a judge to agree to the bypass, something an actual sex trafficker is unlikely to be able to do.

    2) Rose has released tapes, which even if they showed what she alleged-which they often do not- show incidents at 16 out of over 820 clinics operated by Planned Parenthood, or less than 2%. Even if Rose's claims were 100% true, she has only shown that there are a few bad apples at PP, as in any other organization. One wonders how many clinics Rose and her conspirators visited where she did not even get anything she can deceptively edit to smear the organization. That is her real cause, after all, smearing Planned Parenthood. She doesn't really care about child sex trafficking, she is just callously using the specter of child sex trafficking to advance her goals.

    1) If anyone believes or trusts Rose, her claims and her videos at this point, they just aren't paying attention.

    If child sex trafficking cover-ups were as endemic at PP as she claims, why hasn't she been able to provide a single ACTUAL victim? In all her videos all we have is B movie actors hamming it up i utterly unbelievable roles as pimps and "bottom girls" or 13 year olds, who are actually 18-20. What a joke.

  6. If an organization is good it will find out what went wrong, was done wrong, went bad, or was not good, and will do the real work to make the correction, acknowledge the errors, ask forgiveness from the public, and then ask for support because they are about doing good and not evil.

    But for that to happen, wouldn't they have to be a Christian organization?

    It seems to me that they would at least have to have someone born again who is in charge of something there, for a tree is known by it's fruit.

    How refreshing it would be to see real change, from darkness to light, from the power of Satan, unto God.

    God knows everything we need even before we ask. He's given his offering to us to provide for all. Therefore we plead the blood
    for all the things we need salvation from. For this world is full of trouble, and trouble comes. God shelters us as we come to his mercy seat. There we find shelter underneath his wings.
    Psalm 91.

  7. As much as some pro-abortion people would like to push this aside as a joke, it is not. It's awfully difficult to bring yourself to the point where you watch the video, then defend Planned Parenthood. If they are indefensible, then you attack Gary, all pro-life people, Ramona and anyone else who brings something to light that was supposed to remain in the darkness.
    2:48 I believe there will be charges, but you say Lila has not been able to bring forward "a single actual victim". Does that mean Planned Parenthood aiding and abeting someone whom they think is a criminal is okay, once we know they wern't? Or until someone is injured or killed as in the case in Philadelphia?

  8. Why does our government continue to fund Planned Parenthood when we have such a significant short fall? They are corrupt. Gary can't we talk to our legislators and ask them to cut off funding?

    "But for that to happen, wouldn't they have to be a Christian organization?"

    What a pathetic belief system that only christians can be good. I feel badly for your children.

  10. 'But for that to happen, wouldn't they have to be a Christian organization?"

    Wow, that statement is so gobsmackingly ignorant and bigoted I just don't know what to say.

    @8:47 - Lila Rose has been doing this shtick for years and there have been exactly zero prosecutions thus far. Assuming that the people in question actually think Rose's minions are criminals implies that A) they heard the often mumbled admission of sex work, b) the tapes themselves aren't doctored - Rose has already been busted editing the audio and c) the acting ability of her minions is at all convincing.

    The case in Philadelphia did not involve PP.

    Again, if there are criminal acts going on at PP, just where are the victims. PP operates over 820 clinics in the US, Rose would have us believe that a pimp and his "bottom girl" walking in, admitting they are trafficking underage women, and seeking health care for them is an everyday occurrence at these clinics. That would mean there are literally thousands of victims, yet we have to see so much as a single one produced. Anyone with critical thinking skills would rightly ask why. Could it be that the real child sex traffickers don't give a rat's rear end about the health of the girls they abuse?
