The pro-life group Live Action has released three new undercover videos taken at Planned Parenthood (PP) centers in Virginia that it says show a "disturbing pattern of gross misconduct by Planned Parenthood."
As in the previous two, a man posing as a pimp enters the center and asks about services such as birth control, STD testing, or abortions for his underage prostitutes. The first video, released Tuesday, resulted in the firing of one PP worker in New Jersey.
In the new videos, the workers don't overtly tell the pimp how to run his business -- like the New Jersey worker did -- but they do discuss questionable practices. Live Action describes what it found in the latest round of videos from the Virginia cities of Falls Church, Roanoke, and Charlottesville:
• Falls Church – Abortions for underage girls from other countries only require a photo ID.
Planned Parenthood staffer: “We don’t necessarily look at the legal status, like I said. Abortion appointments do require photo ID. It’s nothing as far as records. It’s just photo ID that’s ever going to be required.”
• Roanoke – Birth control and STD testing for underage prostitutes is no problem
Planned Parenthood staffer: “From the age of 12 up, for birth control, you can just come in and do that. You don’t have to have a parent, OK?”
Planned Parenthood staffer discussing STD testing: “And the thing is, see this is the thing a lot of people don’t know that. . .Right, through the Health Department. And so, they’ll uh, they’ll track it. And they’re discreet. They’re confidential. They, you know, don’t tell people what’s going on, because – frankly – it’s nobody’s
• Charlottesville – Birth control and testing for STDs and pregnancy for underage girls with no questions asked.
Planned Parenthood staffer: “Anybody here can help you. Everything here is confidential. We can’t give any information out.”
Readers might notice that the videos are posted on Blip and not YouTube. According to the group, YouTube was threatening to remove at least one of the videos because of "privacy" complaints. The group links here to explain the controversy.
