The first Live action video, released earlier this week, showed a NJ Planned Parenthood manager counseling teenage sex traffickers. Initially, Planned Parenthood defenders like Media Matters, described it as a “hoax”, and “heavily edited”, implying that it was dishonestly portraying what happened.
Then, Media Matters, slithered into this line of defense:
In fact, even if we were to assume that Rose’s heavily edited smear job is accurate – and there are plenty of reasons to be skeptical – the video very clearly establishes that the alleged wrongdoing is counter to Planned Parenthood policy: the employee on Rose’s tape makes it clear that the actions in question would have to be concealed from others at the organization.
Planned Parenthood is too scrupulous for anyone else in the office to be let in on the “cover-up,” and when it comes to abortion, the “pimp” and “prostitute” are advised to go to another facility entirely to avoid the diligence of Planned Parenthood.
If the “alleged” wrongdoing (that resulted in Woodruff’s firing) is so counter to PP’s policies, why does it keep happening?
Unscrupulous behavior at Planned Parenthood Clinics do not appear to be a fluke.
Live Action reports:
The investigation continues to unearth alarming evidence that Planned Parenthood, which receives more than $350 million from the American taxpayer every year, is willing to facilitate the sexual exploitation of minors and young women.

The following quotes are excerpts from the Richmond video, after the employee has been told some of the girls are 14 – 15 years old:
“If someone’s a minor and they don’t want their parents to know – parent’s insurance – so an abortion would show up. You fill out paperwork and we kinda help you set it up and we have a confidential hotline that will call you at whatever number you give us and handle the whole thing. So, for someone who’s a minor, that’s a really good thing. We do ‘em like once or twice a month here.”
“We’re pretty good at handling if someone doesn’t want someone else to know.”
“We can talk to them over the phone – everything’s confidential.”
Partial transcript via Hot Air:
MAN: We’re involved in sex work, so …
MAN: There’s some other girls that we kinda, we manage, and they kinda need help too.
WOMAN: Yeah, I’ve been trying to get him in here for a while now, ’cause we gotta keep them safe.
PP: Yeah, of course. So we see people from, I mean, every walk of life, so … For a while, we were treating like all of the girls at Paper Moon [a strip club] and like, you know, various places around town, so no judgment, no sharing of information, like, uh, nothing here.
MAN: That’s what we were worried about, you know, the health facility, or the government, stuff like that. Now, the more complicated part of it, though, is, um, some of the girls, they’re around like 14, 15, and some of them are from, like, out of state, out of country. They don’t know about the facilities, they don’t know how to get help. I don’t even know how to do it. So, like, what are your, like …
PP: Like, are they legally here? Or are they legally residents?
Ed Morrissey notes:
Believe it or not, that’s the only legal issue raised in this interview — the immigration status of the girls prostituting for the pimp. He had already stated that some of the girls were 14 and 15 years of age, which constitutes criminal sexual exploitation of minors. That requires abortion clinics and all medical facilities to report the information. Did this clinic file a report? We’ll find out soon enough. Also, the dancers at the Paper Moon can’t be terribly happy to know that the clinic is advertising their diseases, especially after watching the nurse assure a pimp of confidentiality to protect his underage sex ring. Maybe law enforcement might want to take a closer look at the activities of that club, too.
If this clinic did file a report, it still needs to explain the why it facilitates underage abortions without parental consent once or twice a month.

Tell The Liberal Media: “Stop Ignoring Planned Parenthood Sting Video!”
ABC, NBC and CBS continue to completely ignore this story.
This obvious and outrageous omission by the networks cannot be allowed to go unchallenged, and the MRC Action team is taking the Leftist media to task,
holding the media accountable and demanding they “Stop Ignoring the Planned Parenthood Sting Video” and start doing their jobs!
Go here for details.
RedState has uncovered evidence – confirmed by the CDC’s own press office – that the Obama administration is deliberately playing “hide the ball” on nationwide abortion statistics. For apparently the first time in 40 years, the CDC’s annual “Abortion Surveillance Report” was not published, and there are “no plans” for the data to be produced at this time.
UPDATE:Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (MO-4) is the first member of Congress to provide RedState with a statement:
“This is the epitome of hypocrisy being exhibited by the Obama Administration as it hides facts and figures on abortion while claiming to want more transparency in government. This is a pattern that has become all too common with the Obama Administration, ranging from its distortion of the facts on taxpayer funding of abortions under ObamaCare to manipulated information to support repeal of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy. It is time for the Obama White House to put a stop to its disregard for openness in government and to end its practice of distorting data for blatantly political purposes.”
