Planned Parenthood Encourages Sex Trafficking and Underage Prostitution

John McCormack in The Weekly Standard has an article on the latest Planned Parenthood scandal in which a clinic manager is caught on tape advising a person posing as an underage prostitution ring operator how to procure abortions for underage prostitutes. In "Planned Parenthood's Incoherent Response to Sex Trafficking Video" he writes:
Yesterday, pro-life activist Lila Rose released a video that showed the manager of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey advising a man, posing as a sex trafficker, on how he should go about evading the law in order to get abortions and STD-testing for his 14-year-old prostitutes/sex slaves.

"We're involved in sex work," the man tells Planned Parenthood manager Amy Woodruff. "Some of [the prostitutes] are like, ah, they're kind of young. Some of them are like 15, 14, and some of them don't speak any English," he continues, asking Woodruff why the prostitutes shouldn't be worried they'll be reported while coming in for Planned Parenthood's services.

"As long as they just lie and say, 'Oh, [my sexual partner is] fifteen, sixteen.' You know, as long as they don't say 'fourteen' and as long as it's not too much of an age gap then we just kind of like--then we just kind of play stup[id]," says Woodruff.

"It's like, you know, she's still entitled to care without mom knowin' what the hell's goin' on," says Woodruff. As shocking as Woodruff's words may be, they're actually a concise summary of the New Jersey Supreme Court's 2004 ruling that invalidated the state's parental consent law. Despite the court's decision to enshrine a right to abortion-on-demand for teens, the Planned Parenthood employee is still willing to run afoul of laws against covering up statutory rape and sex trafficking. Woodruff even gives the 'pimp' advice on what kind of sex acts his prostitutes should perform while they're recovering from abortions. "Waist up, or just be that extra action walking by,” she says.

Planned Parenthood's response to this sting video has been rather incoherent. On one hand, a spokesman for the organization accuses Lila Rose's group of using "surreptitious videotaping and manipulative editing." That defense hasn't worked too well for the men caught on NBC's To Catch a Predator, and it doesn't seem to be working out for Planned Parenthood either. Today Planned Parenthood fired Woodruff for the statements she made on the tape. That's a clear concession that the tape is authentic and accurate, right? (And you don't need to take anyone's word for it. You can watch the full unedited version of the tape here).

Read the rest here.

Planned Parenthood is an evil conglomerate that targets the weak, the vulnerable and the helpless for exploitation in the name of a radical, anti-family, anti-God ideology. They should be put out of business and would be in a civilized society. But they have friends in high places to whom they have channeled gobs of money over the years - politicians like Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

Let us hope that the new pro-life Republican majority in the House is able to defund this organization that receives hundreds of millions of tax-payer money every year. And let us pray that after 2012 this organization is put out of business for once and for all by the unbiased application of the law.
