Left Fears a Take-down of Planned Parenthood

The just-released undercover videos at five separate Planned Parenthood clinics exposing, among other things, employees' complicity in sex trafficking, coupled with the ever-increasing American public's abhorrence of abortion and congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, could spell the decline of the nation's largest abortion corporation.

The Planned Parenthood employee caught on tape giving inappropriate advice to a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute has been fired, the organization announced Wednesday.

The video, taped as part of an undercover sting by an antiabortion group, showed a clinic manager in New Jersey apparently advising the pair on how to obtain services for illegal immigrant prostitutes and sex workers as young as 14.

The video was shot as part of a years-long campaign by the group Live Action targeting Planned Parenthood because of its role as an abortion provider.

At least 12 clinics in six states received visits in January by men claiming to be engaged in sex trafficking, according to Planned Parenthood.

Activists behind the sting, conducted on Jan. 13, claimed victory Wednesday, saying the firing is an acknowledgement of negligence.

The undercover actors approached the clinic without an appointment to inquire about testing for sexually transmitted diseases, abortions and access to contraception, Live Action said. They openly stated involvement in "sex work" that employed young, undocumented immigrant girls.

"The only thing that you do have to be careful is, if they are a minor, we are obligated if we hear any certain information to kind of report," the manager said in the video. "So as long as they just lie and say, 'Oh he's 15, 16.' You know, as long as they don't say '14' and as long as it's not too much of an age gap then we just kind of like play it stup-- ..."

New Jersey Attorney General Paula Dow has asked the state Division of Criminal Justice to investigate whether the manager should be charged with a crime in the incident. "At first glance, I find these allegations to be very disturbing," Dow said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood has come under fire from the religious, pro-life, and legal community for five recent videos showing Planned Parenthood clinic managers in New Jersey and Virginia talking to undercover reporters posing as a pimp and prostitute.

The New Jersey abortion clinic manager told the undercover reporters to have the girls lie about their age and write that they are "students" in order that the pimp might get a cheaper service rate. To avoid reporting cases of abuse to the authorities, the manager promises to "play it stupid" when the supposed pimp and minors falsify medical documents to obtain abortion and testing services.

Expose Planned Parenthood, a coalition of many pro-life organizations and individuals, held a webcast on their website Thursday night in which advocates called for the federal government to more closely regulate Planned Parenthood operations and end federal funding to Planned Parenthood. During the webcast, a former Planned Parenthood clinic manager said, "Planned Parenthood is a safe haven for people who are trying to abuse girls and even minor women."

Three more undercover videos taken at separate Planned Parenthood clinics have been released by an organization called Live Action, which claims it's finding "alarming patterns" of abortion providers willing to aid and abet underage sex-trafficking.

"Live Action has previously released more than a dozen hidden camera videos from ten states," Live Action asserted in a statement. "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."

The videos capture conversations between the undercover "pimp" and Planned Parenthood staffers in three Virginia cities: Charlottesville, Falls Church and Roanoke.

In the Roanoke video, viewable [above], the Planned Parenthood staffer offered the "pimp" emergency, 5-day contraceptive pills that he could pick up for his underage "girls." The staffer also encouraged him, if he was worried about having a sexually transmitted disease, to go donate blood, because the plasma places "have to test for everything anyway."

She further explained for his underage girls, "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?"
