No, not Ezra Klein. In this case, someone much smarter:
Two years ago, Andrew Breitbart’s “Big” sites played a crucial role in bringing down ACORN by publicizing the willingness of several branch offices to facilitate teenage prostitution. The result was to turn ACORN politically radioactive and led to the cutoff of its federal funding.
Now, apparently, it’s the turn of Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry. In the following video, an investigative team lead by UCLA student Lila Rose exposes how a Planned Parenthood office was willing to cover for an abortion for a teenage hookers and even advised the “pimp” how he could keep his girls working in the trade after the procedure.
As Rose explains in her article:
Think about it. Where is a pimp going to send his victims if they get pregnant on the “job”? An abortion clinic, and preferably one that won’t ask any questions. What if those victims are young girls, kidnapped or drafted in from the US, or trafficked in from other nations? Planned Parenthood has demonstrated that they do not report abuse. They are experts at turning a blind eye and asking for “as little information as possible.”
But would Planned Parenthood go as far as aiding and abetting the sex trafficking of underage girls?
This video reveals a top-level Planned Parenthood worker, the manager of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey’s second largest clinic, making a secret deal with a pimp. Watch and listen as the Planned Parenthood manager, Amy Woodruff, advises the pimp how to make the trafficking of underage girls look “as legit as possible” (her words). Watch and listen as the manager advises the pimp how to ensure that his 14-year old victims of trafficking can still make money for him after secret abortions by performing sex acts “waist up” (her idea). Watch as she advises the pimp to instruct his girls to lie on the paper work about their ages, and identify themselves as “students” to get cheaper contraception and avoid mandatory reporting laws.
Be sure to read the whole thing.
Rose demands a federal investigation of Planned Parenthood and calls on Congress to cut off their funding. While difficult to imagine, given the abortion industry’s strong support for the Democrats, don’t forget that it was a Democratic congress that felt forced to defund ACORN, no matter how temporary they tried to make it. With the Republicans now in charge of the House and a shaky Democratic majority in the Senate, Planned Parenthood’s portion of our tax dollars (and of those borrowed from China) is likely in grave danger.
As for a federal investigation, don’t expect it from Obama’s DoJ. But a Republican-chaired House committee should be able to throw a lot of light into corners Planned Parenthood would rather keep hidden. Given the documentary evidence Rose and Life Dynamics have compiled, Planned Parenthood will have a hard time arguing that the problem is just “one rogue clinic.”
Regardless of what one believes concerning the politics of abortion, polls show most Americans are opposed to federally funding it. (Planned Parenthood says otherwise.) After this revelation, they may also come to oppose providing tax dollars for abortion counseling — or career counseling for teen prostitutes and their pimps.
