NAF’s Trojan Horse: suing pro-life group for something journalists and others have done for years

It is difficult for the media which has been so admittedly pro-abortion to keep focus, so I will let them in on a little secret:

The recent lawsuit filed by the National Abortion Federation (NAF) against a pro-life group exposing a gruesome baby parts operation is nothing more than a Trojan Horse of distraction.

NAF Tweet CMP

By now we have all seen those undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) showing Planned Parenthood’s horrific baby parts harvesting operation.

As a result, late last month San Francisco Judge William Orrick granted the National Abortion Federation a temporary restraining writing that NAF would likely suffer irreparable injury absent a temporary restraining order.

NAF Lawsuit Troy Newman

The suit, filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, asks that the Defendants be preliminarily and permanently enjoined from publishing or otherwise disclosing any recordings or confidential information from NAF annual meetings, publishing or otherwise disclosing the names or addresses of any NAF members that they learned at NAF annual meetings, and attempting to gain access to any future NAF meetings.

NAF meetings are one of the only places where abortion providers can come together to learn about the latest research and advances in their field, and network without fear of harassment or intimidation. Many of the attendees are high-profile targets of anti-abortion extremists,” NAF stated in the press release.

FAKE COMPANY

In their lawsuit, NAF claims that CMP created a “fake company” to expose the Planned Parenthood scheme, writing:

    Defendants The Center for Medical Progress (“CMP”), David Daleiden, Troy Newman and individuals acting in concert with them conspired to defraud and did defraud NAF by setting up a fake company (Defendant “Biomax Procurement Services”), which held itself out as a legitimate fetal tissue procurement organization. Daleiden and his cohorts pretended to be officers and employees of their fake company, Biomax Procurement Services. They assumed false identities, used fake driver’s licenses and approached NAF in order to gain access to its annual meetings. Using their fake names and identities, they signed agreements with NAF, agreements designed to protect NAF members from exactly the type of anti-abortion harassment that is the subject of this lawsuit…

Yet, this is just the sort of thing that whistle blowers and investigators do all the time as this 20/20 episode below proves:

As for the use of undercover video, we all know this tactic has been used by journalists for years.

This 20/20 investigation on “Repair Shop Fraud” where a reporter did not “use his real name” is just one example.

There are literally hundreds of these “investigations” out there.

HIDDEN CAMERAS

The NAF lawsuit against the pro-life group also lists CMP’s use of video as a cause to censor their message further:

    In order to gain access to NAF’s annual meetings, they then signed agreements with NAF promising not to record video or audio tape, to only use information learned at NAF’s national meetings to enhance the quality and safety of services provided by NAF members, and not to disclose any information learned at NAF’s annual meetings to any third parties. All of these promises were false and fraudulent when they were made.

Undercover video and hidden cameras are used by the media all the time to produce reports and investigations.

Just one example is this CBS affiliate who went “undercover” inside several Los Angelas restaurants:

Lest you think the tactic of video in undercover investigations is only reserved for law enforcement or journalists, they are not.

In fact, several mission driven non-profits have used under cover investigations to make their case.

As one example, prominent on the Humane Society website is an undercover video exposing the mistreatment of pigs.

Humane Society Pigs

The non-profit praises the effort describing it this way:

    A video from an undercover investigation of a pig factory farm earned both a 2013 Webby People’s Voice Award and a Webby Winner Award. The video, called “Undercover at a Tyson Pig Supplier,” was shot in April 2012 at Wyoming Premium Farms, a pig factory farm in Wheatland, Wyo. that at the time of the investigation was supplying pigs to meat giant Tyson Foods. It shows workers kicking living piglets like soccer balls, swinging sick piglets in circles by their hind legs, striking mother pigs with their fists and repeatedly and forcefully kicking them as they resisted leaving their young. As a result of the exposé, five Wyoming Premium workers recently pleaded guilty to criminal animal cruelty.

NARAL

Even the abortion rights group NARAL which supports Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation used under cover tactics to sting what they referred to as “fake pregnancy centers”

Writing for RH Reality Blog, Nina Liss-Schultz, explained the process:

    NARAL Pro-Choice California sent women undercover over the past year to more than a quarter of the state’s 167 crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs), gathering information on the quality and kind of services offered by the anti-choice groups that run those facilities, in addition to the experience a person might have using a CPC as a resource during a pregnancy.

Katie STack abortion CPC prolife pregnancy

A report conducted by, Vice News revealed that a committed abortion advocate running a project whose sole purpose is to take down pro-life pregnancy centers, recorded conversations with pro-life counselors using hidden cameras.

The Crisis Project

Katie Stack, who founded The Crisis Project admitted to Vice News that she uses hidden cameras to film the counseling and admitted to using “fake pee” so the counselors would think she was pregnant.

Interestingly, NAF thanked Katie Stack for her work:

NAF Thanks Katie Stack

In October 2011, rather then condemn Stack’s undercover vids as “fake” she was published in the New York Times op-ed section for her critique of crisis pregnancy centers, “When I Needed Help, I Got Propaganda.”

David Daleiden Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

Like CMP’s David Daleiden, Stack is also a young person in her twenties. However, because she was attacking the pro-life effort to help women, her undercover “investigation” was praised by the media.

But, as I have stated, the use of hidden cameras for undercover investigations is nothing new. A simple search on “Hidden Camera Investigations” on youtube will prove the tactic is universally used.

FAKE NAMES

NAF also accused CMP investigator’s of using fake names….but…that is also a Trojan Horse when you understand that this tactic is used to expose any number of illegal or unethical actions.

As an aside, The Daily Caller once blogged about the use of fake names by reporters generally ( read here.)

French Journalist

When a French female journalist went undercover to find out why teens were flocking to ISIS by setting up a fake Facebook account and a fake name and persona, CBS praised the effort.

Feminist author Gloria Steinem also used the “undercover” “fake name” tactic to expose Playboy.

Gloria Steinem--_0

In 1963, Steinem went undercover as a Playboy Bunny to experience a bunny’s life in Hugh Hefner’s New York Playboy mansion.

She wrote about her experiences in Show Magazine in an article entitled, “A Bunny’s Tale.”

I’ve decided to call myself Marie Catherine Ochs,” Steinem writes in the story, adding, “I’ve spent the afternoon making up a background for Marie.

INFILTRATE

Aborted babies from CMP Planned Parenthood vid

Aborted babies from CMP Planned Parenthood vid

The NAF lawsuit against CMP complains that the cunning undercover investigators were able to “infiltrate” their “secret” meetings, writing:

    Defendants Daleiden, Newman, CMP, and others associated with the Enterprise, and were willing participants in it. Each had a common purpose and interest in the establishment and operations of the scheme. They also agreed to the manner in which the Enterprise would be conducted, i.e., as evidenced by Daleiden’s own statements, the creation of an admittedly fake company (Biomax Procurement Services) in order to infiltrate by false and fraudulent pretenses NAF’s annual meetings, and to infiltrate the offices and clinics of its constituent members, all for the purposes of portraying NAF and its constituent members in a false light, destroying their professional repuations, and placing NAF members in personal jeopardy. At all relevant times, Daleiden, CMP, Biomax and Newman were generally aware of each other’s conduct in furtherance of the scheme, and were knowing and willing participants in that conduct.

Yet infiltration is also a part of American investigations.
KENNEDY-obit-popup

Stetson Kennedy, who wrote an exposé detailing his infiltration of the Klan called, “I Rode With the Ku Klux Klan,” was noted as a “folklorist and social crusader” by the New York Times upon his death.

After being rejected by the Army because of a bad back, he threw himself into unmasking the Ku Klux Klan as well as the Columbians, a Georgia neo-Nazi group. He was inspired in part by a tale told by an interview subject whose friend had been the victim of a racial murder in Key West,” the New York Times writes.

article-0-1DB51A2900000578-85_634x377Last year an international media outlet reported how a retired black police officer was able infiltrate a branch of the Klu Klux Klan in Colorado.

According to that Daily Mail report:

    Ron Stallworth was an investigator for the Colorado Springs Police Department in 1979 when he answered a newspaper ad placed by a new KKK group, who were looking for local members.

    Writing about the experience in a new book, Black Klansman, Stallworth explains how the hate group not only made him a member, but voted to make him the chapter’s leader after only one year.

    ‘So they took a vote, they took a unanimous vote and they wanted Ron Stallworth to become the leader of the Ku Klux Klan chapter because he was quote loyal and a dedicated Klansman,” Stallowrth told Salt Lake City’s ABC 4.

Gabney church os scientologyEarlier this year, Business Insider reported the way one filmmaker infiltrated the Church of Scientology, writing:

    Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney (“Taxi to the Dark Side,” “Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room”) remembers how he reacted the first time he was offered the chance to do a film on the Church of Scientology.

    “I turned it down,” he told Business Insider…

    Gibney’s approach to secrecy came from his talks with Wright, who used similar methods when he interviewed former church members for his book. “I often used throw-away phones and encrypted email,” he said. “People were so frightened.”

The film was not condemned by the left and even premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Interestingly, after the Church of Scientology attempted to discredit his investigation Gibney responded, “They are playing a PR game with them to say, ‘Look at these evil people who are attacking us. Look how valiantly we are trying to defend our organization,‘” he said.

Sound familiar?

As much as the media is crying foul when CMP exposes Planned Parenthood, they remained relatively quiet when the left leaning PETA organization infiltrated a KFC supplier using those infamous undercover videos and posing as a worker for the chicken factory.

Peta infiltrates KFC

A look at NAF’s requirements for becoming a member reveals that the “infiltration” issue is more a culpability on their part than on CMP.

NAF Membership fees

The abortion lobby group promises members:

    Because NAF and our members have been the targets of anti-abortion activity, our application asks for references. Specifically, we ask for references from current NAF members or from other people or institutions known to us. If you have difficulty with this requirement, please call the NAF membership office at 202-667-5881.

Did NAF ask for references or did they allow the pro-life undercover operatives into their inner circle with no or little scrutiny? Whichever is the case, NAF’s first and foremost concern must be their own multi-million dollar pockets. If the CMP vids are released as they should be, the one who should be sued here by anyone who attended their conference is the National Abortion Federation in my view.

naf_logo

But, it’s not just their attendees that are a concern to NAF.

The organization which touts the highest standards for abortion care happens to have as their members the same Planned Parenthood centers now under investigation for possible illegal activity.

A breakdown of each Planned Parenthood exposed by CMP and their ties to NAF are listed below:

Dr GInde Planned ParenthoodThe first CMP video released featured the Vice President and Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains (PPRM) in Denver, CO, Dr. Savita Ginde. PPRM is one of the largest and wealthiest Planned Parenthood affiliates and operates clinics in Colorado, New Mexico, Wyoming, and Nevada.

Another shocking video showed Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains VP & Medical Director Savita Ginde discussing contract details for aborted baby pricing and how not to “get caught.”

Not only was the Denver affiliate of PPRM listed as a NAF Member but so were several others:

Planned Parenthood of Rocky Mountains NAF

planned-parenthood-video-crush-bIn Center for Medical Progress’ first video Dr. Deborah Nucatola head of Planned Parenthood’s medical services department bragged how she would crush above or crush below the desired unborn child’s organ to appease “buyers” of the fetal body parts.

Matry Gatter Planned ParenthoodPlanned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President Mary Gatter described on tape how she would modify the abortion procedure, performing a “Less Crunchy” technique to obtain more “whole specimens.” Gatter then joked about wanting a Lamborghini. In that second video, Gatter was also caught haggling over payments for intact fetal specimens and offering to use a “less crunchy technique” to get more intact body parts.

Both Gatter and Nucatola are referenced in NAF guidelines on abortion ( read here.)

Alter process intact fetal cadavers Planned ParenthoodThe fifth undercover video in the controversy over Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby parts shows the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, advertising the Texas Planned Parenthood branch’s track record of fetal tissue sales, including its ability to deliver fully intact fetuses.

And…the Houston Planned Parenthood abortion center is listed as a NAF member:

NAF Planned Parenthood Houston Baby parts

NAF, with all their talk about high standards, is spending far more time attacking the Center for Medical Progress than investigating the allegations of illegal activity by Planned Parenthood.

Although NAF supports the use of aborted babies for research they claim to require their members to obey all laws regarding their procurement as well as forbidding any monetary compensation, something Planned Parenthood is being accused of doing.

NAF Fetal Tissue donation

NAF says they support fetal tissue donation as long as Federal laws and regulations are observed and according to NAF:

    I.Informed consent for fetal tissue donation may not be obtained until after a patient has given full informed consent for the abortion.
    II.A woman’s decision to donate fetal tissue must be voluntary and uncoerced.Providers must not offer any financial or other incentives to the patient.
    III.Clinics and providers cannot financially gain from their participation in fetal tissue donation. Remuneration is limited to “reasonable payments associated with the transportation, implantation, processing, preservation, quality control, or storage of fetal tissue” (NIH Revitalization Act of 1993).
    IV.Providers cannot change abortion procedures specifically to accommodate fetal tissue collection needs.

In NAF’s Fetal Tissue Donation Position Statement they state:

    NAF requires that all members adhere to the applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations governing fetal tissue donation…NAF strongly supports existing prohibitions against financial gain from fetal tissue donation.

The American Medical Association also states that no financial benefit should be granted to those who abort the child whose tissue is later donated for research.

It’s time to stop focusing on NAF’s Trojan Horse and start asking why the organization which allegedly creates guidelines and standards for the abortion industry isn’t saying more to condemn Planned Parenthood!

JewelsGreen2015bFormer abortion clinic worker turned ardent pro-life human rights advocate, Jewels Green wrote an interesting piece on this entire scam as well, where she points out that:

    NAF is suing under the Federal Civil RICO statute, civil conspiracy, breach of contract, and various state statutes.

    CMP’s attorneys will no doubt point out that damages for emotional distress or any personal injury claimed by NAF members are not cognizable under civil RICO. See, e.g., Grogan v. Platt, 835 F.2d 844, 846 (11th Cir. 1988); James v. Meow Media, Inc., 90 F. Supp.2d 798, 814 (W.D. Ky. 2000); Moore v. Eli Lilly & Co., 626 F. Supp. 365, 367 (D. Mass. 1986); City and County of San Fransisco v. Philip Morris, 957 F. Supp. 1130, 1138-39 (N.D. Cal. 1997).

    Similarly, “reputational injuries” from alleged defamation are not actionable under RICO. Santana v. Cook County Bd. of Review, 679 F.3d 614, 623 (7th Cir. 2012).

    But this doesn’t mean they won’t try, because…they’re doing it right now.

    This will be an interesting trial because any evidence of a civil conspiracy on CMP’s part will also be evidence of a criminal conspiracy on NAF’s part.

Adding:

    NAF brought the fight, but it plays right into CMP’s hands.

    Why?

    Because the basis for each of NAF’s assertions of fact and law is discoverable.

Should be interesting how this plays out!

Vid shows NARAL’s hypocrisy on pro-life pregnancy centers

Posted in Abortion Consent form, Abortion on nonpregnant women, CPC, NARAL with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 14, 2015 by saynsumthn

NARAL has produced a vid accusing pro-life pregnancy centers of giving women alleged “false information” but they are hypocritical in their energy to oppose CPC’s when the abortion industry is filled with dangerous practices for women.

NARAL UC Berkley CPC

You know when you have hit a nerve when the LARGEST – I repeat the LARGEST abortion lobbying group in the nation NARAL has a full blown marketing scheme to slander pro-life pregnancy centers.

NARAL 990 2012

Just listen to the way they present information in the video below.

They do not quote one single source of documentation to counter any of the points they claim pro-life pregnancy centers make about abortion.

NARAL CPC vid

They cleverly selected “random members of the public” on the campus of the most liberal college in America, UC Berkley, who – right on cue- act shocked at what they were hearing.

Those “randomly selected members of the public” never state their views on abortion first.

Even more suspicious is that no one seems to oppose NARAL.

Now, in a nation that is majority pro-life- does that sound like a true selection of “random” passers-by to you?

The truth is that pro-life pregnancy centers far outnumber abortion clinics, 3500 nationwide according to their own stats.

Pregnancy Centers are run by donations while abortion (for which NARAL works to further) is a for-profit business.

So, if NARAL wants to question the motives and or actions of pro-life pregnancy centers go for it.

NARAL Planned Parenthood 990

But, do not for one moment think that NARAL’s motives – which are of course abortion on demand for any reason and at any stage- are pure as the driven snow.

The video begins with NARAL asking their alleged random public this question:

Who do you think are the types of people who would work at Crisis Pregnancy Centers?” they ask.

NARAL CPC vid 2

They quote no studies to show who works at pregnancy centers when they imply that medical professionals do not work at CPC’s.

But, even if that were true- pregnancy centers are NOT performing surgical procedures like – oh…say…Planned Parenthood and abortion clinics do.

But- when you try to inspect, regulate, or require abortion clinics to be operated by physicians, have the same standards as other surgical centers do, and be inspected at least once a year- NARAL fights it.

Point number two is that NARAL accuses pregnancy centers of claiming that “abortion is fatal.”

Wonder where a pregnancy center would get such an idea?

Perhaps they think of women like Tonya Reaves, Lakisha Wilson, Laura Hope Smith, Marla Cardomone and others now dead after their “safe and legal” abortions at clinics, Planned Parenthood centers, and even hospitals.

SafeandLegalabortion Marla Cardamone

Or…maybe they are referring to the unborn child who is left dead after the abortion.

According to NARAL death from legal abortion is a joke – because – and we all know the narrative “abortion is a safe and simple procedure.”

Really?

Then tell me NARAL why hasn’t that memo made it to the abortion clinics and Planned Parenthood centers who require women to sign an abortion “consent form” to waive her legal rights if she DIES from the abortion since it IS a possible complication?

Desert abortion clinci consent

Planned Parenthood abortion consent page 1

Planned Parenthood abortion consent page 2

Potomic FP abortion consent

NARAL also asks their “random member of the public” on the most liberal campus, “have you personally ever seen something that wasn’t a baby but thought it was a baby?”

“Like maybe you saw a pile of jackets in a stroller and you thought maybe it was a little person?”

NARAL CPC vid baby

NARAL asks the question because they claim that a pregnancy center incorrectly told a woman that her IUD was a baby, and they are mocking such a wrong diagnosis.

But- they fail to point out the numerous times an abortionist has a misdiagnosis or botches an abortion endangering women.

Like those so-called “dreaded complications” where an abortionist misses the BABY altogether and the child is born alive!

And, all those other kinds of pesky abortion “complications” NARAL ignores:

    Students for Life of America has discovered that a lawsuit was filed against Planned Parenthood Metropolitan located in Washington, D.C. on February 12, 2008.

    Emma Jean Butler is suing Planned Parenthood for $50 million dollars in damages. Butler took her daughter to the D.C. Planned Parenthood on September 7, 2006 to abort a child conceived in rape. During the abortion, the young girl sustained severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation, and a small bowel tear. In addition, parts of the child were found inside young girl’s abdomen on September 8, 2006. Because of these injuries, the young girl will be infertile for the rest of her life.

    Planned Parenthood Metropolitan has denied the injuries suffered and the infertility of the young girl. In addition, they state in their answer that Butler’s claims are barred by the doctrines of informed consent and assumption of risk.

When a woman dies or is injured by abortion – its just a “complication of surgery” to abortion advocates….

And, as long as we are talking about those misdiagnoses – what about the woman who isn’t pregnant and the FOR PROFIT abortion clinic says she is?

Is NARAL speaking out about that?

NO WAY!

In that instance the woman is often put under anesthesia to have risky SURGERY performed one her!

But hey….nothing to see here….move along…we must send NARAL undercovers into the pregnancy centers that DON’T do surgery and where women NEVER die rather than dangerous abortion clinics.

Lest you think this type of misdiagnosis never happens? Think again:

abortion not pregnant

In early December, an Oklahoma abortion doctor was arrested after an undercover sting revealed that he was offering to perform abortions on women who were not pregnant.

Patel-Arrested-Dec-2014--300x231

News reports indicated at that time that undercover agents set up appointments with the 62-year-old abortionist where they say he administered ultrasounds and pregnancy tests and then told them they were pregnant, when they weren’t.

Funny I do not see a video by NARAL about the risk of abortion, the women who die now from legal abortion, the Gosnells and the Steven Chase Brighams and others who are shut down by health officials the numerous ambulance calls because of abortion complications, and on and on the list goes?

Wonder why?

Because, NARAL’s sole reason for existence is to advocate FOR abortion and they cannot do that if women have the legitimate “choice” to visit a pregnancy centers and receive FREE – yes FREE help!

Because….abortion has never been about CHOICE $$$ !!

In conclusion, I must say that for NARAL to send undercover supporters into pro-life pregnancy centers they must have a lot of time on their hands.

I mean…come NARAL, get a life already. (No pun intended.)

A pedophile rapist’s Plan B = abortion !

Students for Life has posted this under cover vid showing two actors one posing as an adult male having sex with a year old teen. The vid clearly reveals the dangers of allowing abortion pills to e OTC to anyone w/o ID. This law was changed after the abortion lobby worked to have it changed.

Planned Parenthood has their own history doing this.

In 2002, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which we called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.

Meanwhile: Pro-aborts bully pharmacies who restrict access to the abortion drug: Plan B

NWL PLAN B

The radically pro-abortion group, National Women’s Liberation (NWL) roamed pharmacies in New York City Saturday to protest pharmacies that restrict over-the-counter access to Plan B One-Step.

NWL_n

According to the pro-abortion blog RH Reality Check, “NWL’s “Morning-After Pill Brigade” targeted five pharmacies near Union Square with an attention-getting, street-theater-style action that pointed out problems with Plan B accessibility to shoppers and management. Group leaders would loudly announce to the store that the brigade was looking for the morning-after pill. Group members then would disperse, asking where the emergency contraception was and handing shoppers a letter to the pharmacy’s CEO.

This post from the group’s facebook page states, “NWL Activists are encouraged that Duane Reade has freed Plan B One-Step from the locked boxes.”

Obama’s Health and Human Services head, Kathleen Sebelius, overruled FDA drug regulators for the first time in history and rejected making it over-the-counter and available without a prescription to women of all ages. Purchasers still need to show ID to buy it.

The group National Women’s Liberation has been fighting for access to the morning-after abortion pill through a federal lawsuit with a decision expected in the next week.

At Tuesday’s action, dozens of people stocked boxes of Plan B on the shelves and called for it to be in front of the counter — not behind it. Brooke Eliazar-Macke, the organizer of the event, said she joined the lawsuit in part because of her own experience.

The good news is that CVS management refused to answer the pro-abort’s questions about why Plan B One-Step was not stocked, instead threatening to call the police and telling the radicals to leave.

Planned Parenthood Supervisor/Practitioner: They just show up, and set up an appointment. Do they have insurance?

Pimp: They don’t have insurance, some don’t even speak that good of English ‘cause you know, they just got here.

Planned Parenthood Supervisor/Practitioner: Right. So we have an interpretation phone, so if they don’t speak Spanish that’s not a problem. I mean if they don’t speak English that’s not a problem cause we can have an interpreter – ……

Prostitute: They just came over, they’re workin’ with us, and we’re helpin’ them out –

Planned Parenthood Staffer: Mhm

Prostitute: Just keeping them safe.

Pimp: Could we even sign off as guardians? Could we even sign off as a guardian, is that even possible?

Planned Parenthood Staffer: If you were writing the support letter, yeah, you could say –

Prostitute: Oh good

Planned Parenthood Staffer: that you take care of them, you support them.

Pimp: Cool!

Planned Parenthood Staffer: But nothing here, like, our patients, we don’t ask for guardian’s signature. Everything is the patient. Like a thirteen-year-old could come in and get the services she needed, by herself.

Pimp: So, how would you recommend for them best to do it? Cause we don’t want them getting confused or what not, and it’s kind of a sensitive subject, so we don’t want you know, them saying the wrong thing, you know getting refused or turned away, so how would you suggest they go about you know being able to get the access even in spite of what they do, you know?

Planned Parenthood Staffer: Yeah, like, like I said everything’s confidential, they don’t have to tell anybody what it is that they do when they make the an appointment, it’s just gonna be between them and the Physician they see.

Advocate for education on Human Trafficking blasts Planned Parenthood says they have no idea of the hell on earth that the victims of sex-trafficking endure

Posted in Abortion, Abortion Clinic Worders, child abuse, child predator, Children, Defund Planned Parenthood, human trafficking, Lila Rose, Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood and Child Predators, Planned Parenthood and Human Trafficking, Privacy, pro-choice, Pro-choice law breakers, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2011 by saynsumthn

After viewing the recent undercover videos released by the Journalist group: Live Action, exposing how Planned Parenthood covers for pimps who traffic in underage girls, an advocate for education on Human Trafficking had this scathing statement.

Dottie Laster has spent nearly a decade fighting daily in efforts to educate citizens and governmental agencies, has a Radio Show, “TRAFFICKED,” which is devoted to issues surrounding the victims of sex-trafficking, and tirelessly works with the victims to be able to restore their lives once the cycle of abuse has been stopped.

Here is the statement she gave on the Planned Parenthood scandal:

“No matter what your opinions on abortion are, in the United States we have strict laws, regulations, procedures and ethics that protect children from being sold in commercial sex. As a scholar of sociology, I have observed that it is not uncommon for organizations which are established to protect freedoms and rights grow, expand and develop into groups that fail to protect the individuals they were formed to serve. Daily, I see instances of law-enforcement, non- profit organizations, legal systems and others fail victims of human-trafficking. Precious windows of opportunity for escape lost or perhaps even worse, the organizations assist the traffickers whether knowingly or not.

After viewing the Planned Parenthood video my first thoughts were of the victims I have served over the last 8 years. Specifically the women and girls — their horrendous statements of rape, gang rapes, torture, branding, starvation, extortions, assault and their reports of repeated forced abortions and miscarriages due to the trauma they received. I have often wondered where these multiple abortions took place and how medical professionals had not seen the extensive trauma to their bodies, spirits and souls.

In this film the apathy for the victims from the Planned Parenthood manager is not uncommon. Her willingness to be helpful to the pimp about how to work the system and receive services to provide birth control, STD testing, and abortions to children in commercial sex was unfortunately was robotic in the face of atrocity. I hope she truly had no idea of the hell on earth that the victims of sex-trafficking endure and how her instructions to keep the children quiet, send them with a biased interpreter and to
avoid contact with the unpopular clinician who would be strict about sexually active youth. I trust she did not know how these instructions would affect the victims’ lives, human rights/civil liberties, and limit their futures. In addition I must hold hope she was not thinking of the families that loved the immigrant children she spoke of who would be devastated to learn what was being planned for their children in the United States.

We have societal myths surrounding the combination of sex and money which blind and fog the minds of people who could have helped the victims and prosecuted the traffickers. A recent example is Lawrence Taylor ‘s deal of no jail time after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors due to buying sex with a minor who he admittedly paid a pimp for sex acts with even though she had a black eye and had clearly been recently beaten and was only 16. There was also a case in Texas, where a 13 year old who was arrested for prostitution and the county prosecutor prosecuted her all the way to the Texas Supreme Court- Her 32 year old “boyfriend’ was never questioned. She had received two abortions before the age of 13 while under his supervision and she was mentally deficient, yet she endured only punishment from our justice system. One of my clients, was arrested at 16, for being in the US illegally due to the trafficking, after undergoing eight to nine abortions and one birth which resulted in death of the infant two days later; a child victim alleged her experience at a hospital where she went to ask for help due to the pain and trauma associated with being prostituted – she asked the doctor wrote a note to her pimp saying she should not have sex for a week and was sent back to him- just as the woman in the film suggested the pimp told her to make money above the waist.

I so wish people would not be seduced and their perspective fogged when they see adults putting children in commercial sex. All children in commercial sex are victims of trafficking according to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and anyone who attempted or intended to participate/facilitate human trafficking activities could face prosecution under the TVPA-whether they completed the crime or not.

I hope that this organization and the individuals who assisted this pseudo- pimp will use this opportunity to train their staff about the laws and protections surrounding children in forced labor, the criminal penalties for anyone who assists in prosecuting children such as prostituting a minor 14 or under which could result in a federal life sentence. They could learn that commercial sex is anything exchanged of value for stripping, pornography or prostitution and learn how to identify victims of trafficking both children and adults and the procedures to effectively assist them.

No matter what medical procedure a person requests their right to privacy must be maintained through HIPPA laws and should not be shared with any pimp or trafficker- and any immigrant minor in the United States who is not accompanied by a parent or guardian must be protected and custody established. I see many training opportunities brought to light due to this video for Planned Parenthood and any organization who serves marginalized populations. The TVPA also has a clause that states any government contractor whose employees or sub- contractors or their dependents engage in human trafficking activities may lose all government funding. So I urge all organizations to address their policies and procedures immediately. The first effective action that any group can do is to recognize that ANY MINOR IN COMMERCIAL SEX IS A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING and that anyone putting a minor in stripping, pornography or prostitution is a trafficker- and should be treated as a criminal.

I hope in the future a film like this would demonstrate a staff displaying a fierce urgency to protect victims and children from forced labor and commercial sex.”

Planned Parenthood uses embarrassing video of covering for pimps and underage sex trafficking to cry for more money !

Here is the shameless letter Planned Parenthood sent out to minimize the affect of the undercover video sting:

There is no other way to say this: our opponents are set on eliminating family planning and sex education and making abortion illegal.

Today, their latest attack hit the news. Anti-choice extremists, who have been attacking Planned Parenthood for five years, released a secretly taped video claiming that Planned Parenthood is covering up exploitation of children. What these videos don’t say is that when their “undercover” operators visited clinics asking for services for an “underage sex trafficking ring,” Planned Parenthood staff immediately reported them to both local and federal authorities. [ ***WOW_ that is a huge claim, does it sound like this staffer was interested in calling the police to you? In fact, many times Planned Parenthood has allowed adult men to hide their crimes by NOT reporting suspected rape of a minor girl who came to them for an abortion, now, all of a sudden, Planned Parenthood wants us to believe they would call the authorities? Give me a break !!! ***]

We’re turning to you for help. Please, I ask you to stand with Planned Parenthood in the face of increasing — and increasingly aggressive — attacks.

The very fact that the people behind the video would fabricate a story about a child sex trafficking ring — a serious and horrific crime that no one should exploit for their own political agenda — is beyond comprehension. And, unfortunately, it is just the latest in the escalation of attacks that include Representative Smith’s bill to ban private insurance coverage for abortion for millions of women and Representative Pence’s bill to defund local Planned Parenthood clinics, so that they can no longer provide family planning, birth control, or preventive care to millions of women.

It is unconscionable that this band of newly-emboldened extremists has resorted to egregious lies to discredit the doctors, nurses, and other staff who devote their lives to protecting women’s health. But, lies are all they have, because the truth is on our side.

The truth is that Planned Parenthood is the nation’s leading sexual and reproductive health care provider and advocate — period. Planned Parenthood gives millions of women the means to control their own reproductive health, from sex education to birth control. We are the leading voice for women’s reproductive health and rights. We’ve been at it for 90 years, and we aren’t going anywhere. Not now. Not ever. That is the truth.

We’ve seen too often what happens when the anti-choice fringe takes control of the national conversation about women’s health and rights, and we’ve seen how easily politicians and the media fall for their dirty tricks. Well, not this time. We cannot allow this coordinated effort between anti-choice extremists and dangerous members of Congress to work. You, and I, and every woman and man in America who knows the truth about Planned Parenthood, who has found care and compassion at a Planned Parenthood health center, who values women’s health, must speak out now.

Stand with us today. And then spread the word.

Thank you so very much for standing with us and the women, men, and teens that rely on Planned Parenthood.

Sincerely,
Cecile Richards, President
Planned Parenthood Federation of America

Sorry Ms. Richards, we are NOT BUYING another lame excuse of potential criminal behavior by Planned Parenthood. If this was as “innocent” as you state, how come you FIRED the clinic worker who went along with this plan- and so willingly I might add.

From the news: Central Jersey Planned Parenthood fires worker after release of undercover video

Tuesday night, Central Jersey Planned Parenthood fired the manager, identified in the video as Amy Woodruff, and beefed up security around its clinics.

“We were profoundly shocked when we viewed the videotape released [Tuesday] morning, which depicted an employee of one of our health centers behaving in a repugnant manner that is inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable,” Phyllis Kinsler, executive director of Planned Parenthood of Central Jersey said in a statement released at 10:20 p.m.

“We have a zero tolerance policy for this kind of behavior, and the employee in the video was immediately suspended from her duties [Tuesday] morning and was terminated [Tuesday] evening,” Kinsler said. “We are fully committed to delivering high-quality reproductive health care to the women of our communities, complying with all laws, and upholding the highest ethical standards.”

***Perhaps Planned Parenthood should THANK Ms. Rose and her Live Action Crew for exposing this? But, alas, the evidence of misbehavior by the TAX DOLLAR SUCKING Planned Parenthood is mounting and a call to defund Planned Parenthood could not happen too soon for me….

But, what is the opinion of those who work with girls to rescue them from Human Trafficking?

Anti-Trafficking Advocates React to Live Action Video Release

We have received the following statements from anti-human trafficking advocates regarding the video we released earlier today showing a Planned Parenthood of New Jersey manager aid what she thought was a child sex trafficker.

Jeffrey J. Barrows, D.O., M.A. (Bioethics)
Founder & Executive Director, Gracehaven
Director, Christian Trafficking Shelter Assoc

As a healthcare professional actively fighting human trafficking, I know that traffickers will often take their victims to clinics to obtain abortions or STI testing. I find it appalling that there are people working at Planned Parenthood who are willing to help traffickers exploit young girls, but even more horrifying to realize they are being paid with my tax dollars!”

Statement of Steven Wagner
President and Founder, the Renewal Forum
Former Director, Human Trafficking Program, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

The ‘Live Action’ video, filmed at a clinic in New Jersey, is profoundly disturbing. It shows a putative health care provider willing to collaborate with a human trafficker in the sexual exploitation of a child. Under U.S. federal law, any juvenile (under 18) who is subjected to commercial sexual exploitation is a victim of human trafficking. Under our legal system, we hold that no child can give informed consent to engage in prostitution. Similarly, no child who is trapped in a situation of commercial sexual exploitation can give informed consent for an abortion, or a regime of contraception. Yet the health care provider in this video readily offers to provide the pimp’s victims with abortions and contraception. Whatever the legal obligation this health care provider has under state law to report the serial sexual abuse of this child, the moral obligation of anyone encountering a juvenile victim of commercial sexual exploitation is to assist the child to escape or at least to alert law enforcement officials. To provide abortions or contraception to a child who is being sexually exploited is to sustain that exploitation – just the same as the adult who pays for sex with a child sustains the exploitation. It is incomprehensible that a health care provider is so eager to abet a trafficker, and for a national organization which receives public funds to support in this way our national epidemic of child sexual exploitation is vile.
