Busting Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood doesn’t care about women, children, or families. They DO care about money, power and influence. And they need abortion to be as legal as possible to continue their rampage on killing babies. Now, Planned Parenthood is under fire after one of its employees was recorded encouraging a student to lie about her age in order to obtain an abortion.

Lila Rose, an 18-year-old sophomore at the University of California Los Angeles, visited a Planned Parenthood clinic in the city, posing as a 15-year-old impregnated by her 23-year-old boyfriend. The visit was part of an investigation for The Advocate, a new pro-life magazine distributed on the UCLA campus.

California law requires abortion clinics to report instances of statutory rape to police. The age of consent in California is 16.

In covertly-filmed video of the meeting between Rose and an unnamed Planned Parenthood employee, the staffer is heard to tell Rose: “If you’re 15, we have to report it … If you’re not, if you’re older than that, then we don’t need to.”

“Okay, but if I just say I’m not 15, then it’s different?” Rose asks.

“You could say 16,” the worker replies, later adding, “Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don’t know anything.”

Legal abortion is not enough for these extreme Leftists. They need to kill and lie to do it.

Kathy Kneer, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California – the state public policy office of Planned Parenthood – criticized Rose’s tactics.

“We believe the individuals behind this are doing this not out of motivation to protect teens but in fact to discredit Planned Parenthood,” Kneer said of Rose and her male accomplice. “They went in with an objective to manipulate our staff, and they did succeed in manipulating our staff.”

Uh, Ms. Kneer, by discrediting Planned Parenthood, they ARE protecting teens. And this “discrediting” didn’t take much effort either. You shot yourself in the foot this time.

Rose defended her undercover methods, which she said provides “the way to find out what really goes on behind closed doors in a clinic, what really goes about to influence these life-changing decisions.”

“The staff gave an incorrect answer,” Kneer said of the employee who suggested that Rose lie about her age. “She should have said, ‘It’s reportable’ and ended the conversation there. But she allowed herself to be manipulated by Lila, and that’s against our policy.”

Kneer said Planned Parenthood “immediately notified all of our staff and reminded them that this is in violation of our policy, and we continue to do that on a regular basis.”

Should have said? Absolutely! But she didn’t. Ms. Kneer’s defense is based entirely on hindsight. Policy says one thing, while employees are doing another. That’s called lying Ms. Kneer. And you have no excuses.

Some investigative journalists earn accolades from their MSM peers. Others don’t.
