Planned Parenthood Could be in Trouble

Dear readers, I would like for you to take a look at the videos contained at this link, or if you are a bit squeamish, jut read the stories. If you are not a regular reader of conservative news web sites, then you might be unaware that an undercover investigation by a young woman named Lila Rose (more stories here) has uncovered that some Planned Parenthood clinics were advising the investigators how to avoid get caught trafficking in minors.

After this story broke a couple of days ago, the media immediately rushed in to condemn, wait for it, Lila Rose, Live Action, and Andrew Breitbart. Instead of going after Planned Parenthood for allowing the type of activity uncovered by Lila Rose, they attacked those that uncovered and released the transgressions. When PP did release a statement over this issue it said they have “alerted federal authorities to a potential multistate sex trafficking ring.”  But this looks like it was released after they got wind of what was about the break. Kind of like shutting the barn door after the cows got out.
Later in the press release, they did mention that one of the individuals involved in these visits “appears to be associated with or influenced by Live Action,…  and “lends credibility to the possibility that these multistate visits are part of this organization’s ongoing efforts to ‘bring down’ Planned Parenthood,…  So PP, which is it? Are they involved with human trafficking for the purpose of sex slaves or are investigating that some of your clinics might be breaking the law?  As an aside, the press release further tried to discredit the investigator by linking them with James O’Keefe with this little bit of misleading information;

“Live Action is associated with James O’Keefe, the conservative activist who was arrested for attempting to wiretap the offices of Senator Mary Landrieu of Louisiana.”

No mention was made that federal investigators could find no proof that O’Keefe was even going to attempt the place a wire tap. See story here.

I will give credit where credit is due. PP did fire the manager at the New Jersey clinic that is featured in one of the videos.

Whether or not you believe abortion should be allowed, these stories should still upset you because the main point the stories were to bring to light is the issue of that human trafficking for the purpose of the sex trade in the US.  If you are interested in learning more about this problem and what you can do to help stop it, read this article and then scroll to the bottom to click on the links provided.
