NY Planned Parenthood Allows "Pimp" to Pose as Guardian

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist The third in a series of undercover videos released by a national pro-life group shows a Planned Parenthood employee in a Bronx clinic not only helping a "pimp" to obtain services for his underage girls, but allows him to pose as their guardian. LifeNews is reporting that a new film released by LiveAction shows clinic staff who are willing to treat underage girls as young as 13 who have been victimized by the alleged sex traffickers. As in the previous videos, the alleged pimp specifically asks about services such as STD testing and abortion for underage girls who don't speak English and who are engaged in "sex work." Throughout the video, Planned Parenthood staff continually reassure the imposter that all their services are confidential and private and make no mention of the fact that the acts being described by the pimp are supposed to be reported to authorities. “We see people as young as 13. Everything is totally confidential,” the worker tells the pimp. This is the third video to be released in the past week and Live Action president Lila Rose says it is evidence of an “institutional crisis in which Planned Parenthood is willing to assist sex trafficking and exploitation of minors and young women.” Planned Parenthood VP Stuart Schear responded to the latest video by telling a producer of the O'Reilly Factor that he believed the Bronx film was "doctored." However, when the producer asked if he had seen the film, Schear is forced to admit that he hasn't. In a statement to before the footage was released publicly, Rose says the video “unequivocally shows that Planned Parenthood is unsafe and puts underage girls and young women in harm’s way.” She went on to say that the organization is making the video and transcripts available to New York law enforcement and is calling New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to launch a formal investigation as has been done in New Jersey by Attorney General Paula Dow. "This footage shows that underage girls and young women are at potentially grave risk when they walk into Planned Parenthood clinics,” Rose said.
