The ACORNing of Planned Parenthood, round three

February 8, 2011

In previous installments, we saw how Live Action, in alliance with Andrew Breitbart, exposed the willingness of Planned Parenthood clinics in New Jersey and Virginia to facilitate abortions for people they thought were teen prostitutes and their pimps, thus possibly abetting a crime. At the time, I felt certain there was more to come.

Now we can add New York to the list:

From Lila Rose’s post at Big Government:

Our actors, posing as a pimp and his prostitute, walked into the Bronx, NY Planned Parenthood clinic. They were quick to tell staff there that they managed an underage sex ring of girls as young as 14.  The staffer is unfazed and offers to go one better: “We see people as young as 13,” reassuring the human traffickers, “everything is totally confidential.”

Our new undercover video released today shows a Planned Parenthood supervisor/practitioner willing to assist the pimp, even offering guidance on how the pimp’s underage sex slaves can get insurance through taxpayer funded programs to pay for abortions and other services even if the underage girls are not U.S. citizens. Both Planned Parenthood workers are quick to recommend that the self-identified pimp use the New York Medicaid system for free services for his sex slaves.

Keep in mind that Planned Parenthood receives over $300 million from taxpayer funds. How much of this money is going to discounts for pimps?

Moe Lane makes the interesting observation that the release of this video occurred just as the New York state legislature is considering a bill that would permit unlimited access to abortion. This should give them pause, since the video show that the abortion industry’s been lying through its teeth about all the controls and checks they have to make sure everything stays legit.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood has decided to hold “retraining sessions” for its clinic workers in the wake of these revelations. Not surprising, given the defunding train that’s heading their way. Presumably they’re more than just “how not to get caught” sessions.

Any bets on when the next salvo hits, and where? I’d be stunned if Chicago isn’t in the queue, given it’s the home town of then-state senator Barack Obama, who voted to let infants who survived abortions die in closets.

Planned Parenthood gets the ACORN treatment

February 3, 2011

I knew this was going to happen.

When Andrew Breibart released Live Action’s video of a Planned Parenthood clinic manager in New Jersey abetting teenage prostitution and human trafficking, I had a feeling more was to come. It wasn’t Breitbart’s pattern to drop just one bomb; no, he fires an opening shot, lets the other guy react and make a mistake, and then hits him again and again until his position crumbles. In the case of Planned Parenthood, what happened to ACORN seems to be happening to Planned Parenthood:

  • Live Action’s initial video is released.
  • Planned Parenthood and their shills in the media cry hoax and selective editing. Then, realizing the video is damning, Planned Parenthood fires the manager and claims to be shocked at this violation of organization policies.
  • Then, the next video comes out, killing any defense that this was a localized occurrence.

Today Live Action released video of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Virginia abetting teenage prostitution and covering up the sexual abuse of minors:

From Lila Rose’s post at Big Government:

Our investigative team has just released the second undercover video revealing Planned Parenthood counseling a pimp on how to obtain secret abortions for his under age sex slaves, by bypassing Virginia parental consent laws meant to protect children. In the footage, taken January 12, 2011, undercover actors tell the Planned Parenthood worker that they are involved in sex work, and manage 14 and 15 year old girls, “some of them from out of state, out of country.” The Planned Parenthood staffer assures him it is confidential, that “we see people here from all walks of life,” and goes on to coach the pimp how to obtain secret abortions for his sex slaves by circumventing Virginia law that require parental consent for underage abortions.

Rose and Live Action have forwarded the Virginia video and documentation to Commonwealth and federal authorities, requesting an investigation. While I still doubt the Feds will get on this (at least, not until it’s so big that even Holder and Obama can ignore it), VA Attorney General Cuccinelli has shown himself to be an aggressive prosecutor. A crucial question will be whether the staff at this clinic reported the crime.

Beyond just Virginia, however, the fact that that the violations appear to occur in multiple states raises legitimate questions about the national Planned Parenthood operation, possibly exposing them to conspiracy and racketeering charges. Especially if, as I suspect, this isn’t the last video.

Planned Parenthood gets over $300,000,000 per year of our tax dollars, and at least some of it appears to be being used to fund illegal abortions for minors and to facilitate sex-slavery. As these videos show, it’s well past time for House Republicans to start asking some very serious questions — and to defund Planned Parenthood.

And the damage control begins

February 2, 2011

Planned Parenthood has fired the prostitution-abetting manager of the New Jersey clinic featured in yesterday’s post.

Let’s see if it does them any good.


Planned Parenthood abets teen prostitution?

February 1, 2011

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.

UPDATE: More from Moe Lane and Hot Air, which notes in an update that the PP national office may have called the Feds.

Palin’s nightstick lands on the Ewoks

August 18, 2010

From her Facebook page,  at the end of a series of endorsements of female candidates in honor of the 90th anniversary of the 19th amendment and in response to a bizarre attack by Emily’s List.

Boom.

On this anniversary of women’s suffrage, let’s take a moment to be grateful for the diversity of the debate. Women don’t walk in lockstep with each other in politics, any more than men do. We should be proud of our ability to engage in a civil discussion and healthy debate. I know I am. Unfortunately, I’ve recently come under attack for speaking up for sisters who seek to serve in public office. The sad part is that the attack comes from other sisters who happen to be on the other side of an issue that has been of great importance to American women from the time of our feminist foremothers, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, down to today. I’m speaking of the issue of life. I feel compelled to offer some advice to our sisters who like to throw stones at those of us who respectfully disagree with them on this issue (and they sometimes refuse to even countenance the fact that some of us can call ourselves feminists and disagree with those who claim the mantle of “real feminists”). First, ladies, it’s hard to take a critic seriously when they lecture you wearing a bear suit. So, it’s difficult for me to drum up much outrage at this latest ad. But, really, lying about a sister while wearing an Ewok outfit is no way to honor our foremothers on the eve of the 90th anniversary of their victory. But, that aside, I’d love to know where you got those get-ups. Halloween is just around the corner, and Piper and Trig would look adorable as little grizzly bears.

Ouch!  Feeling beat up
