“This Corrupt Organization”

— Posted by Elizabeth (February 8, 2011 at 9:15 pm)

In the past eight days, six undercover videos by Live Action have been released showing Planned Parenthood clinics in New Jersey, Virginia and New York willing to assist a pimp and his ring of child prostitutes.

The clinic workers gave instructions encouraging the girls to lie, made a referral to an even more lax abortion clinic, and told the pimp that he could sign as the guardian of the girls coming for abortions. All of this ‘justified’ in the name of confidentiality.

So much for the “women’s rights” pretense that Planned Parenthood so often brandishes.

Planned Parenthood has already been duplicitous in responding to Live Action’s sting. The organization called the original video a hoax, and claimed that the incidents were reported to the authorities, with their employees acting professionally.

Meanwhile, they suspended, then fired the employee in Live Action’s first video, the clinic manager, and issued an apology for the “repugnant” and “unacceptable” behavior. After the release of the five additional videos, Planned Parenthood announced that they would be retraining their staff in addition to terminating those who violate procedures.

In the face of these shocking videos, is it really surprising that Planned Parenthood has gone this far? I mean, this is the organization whose founder was a eugenicist like Adolf Hitler. There have already been a dozen videos previously released by Live Action in which employees are shown covering up sexual abuse and statutory rape, and presenting false information to the women coming for abortions.

It is the hope of Live Action and the pro-life movement that this corrupt organization be rightfully stripped of its taxpayer funding – around $350 million a year. Live Action has already sent the footage to the State Attorneys of New Jersey and Virginia, and has called for an investigation of Planned Parenthood.

    Note: FBI contacted on January 18. Not exactly a galvanic response on PP’s part.

    Someone else put the issue more clearly than I would have:

    “The premise of these videos- that it’s wrong for Planned Parenthood to offer services to people who are engaged in human trafficking- implies that our intolerance for the crime, should include an absolute neglect of the needs of the victims outside of a criminal justice setting. Obviously, as a society, we should work to stop sex trafficking. We should also realize that we need to find ways to mitigate the harm to the young women that we haven’t yet been able to get out of those terrible situations. As others point out, we can’t be effective in addressing the health needs of victims if the same organization which is supposed to help them, is threatening to the people who are in control of them.

    But more important than realizing that the videos are based on a flawed premise, is realizing that it’s a disingenuous one: the creators aren’t concerned with helping the victims of sex crime, they’re concerned with abolishing legal abortion. The videos seek only to associate PP with pimps and prostitutes, in a crass attempt to foment disgust and hatred for PP- as though, if we make PP go away, we’ll be helping to make pimps and prostitutes go away, too.”
