New Live Action video uncovers more manipulative counseling at Planned Parenthood

posted at 9:30 am on April 13, 2010 by Cassy Fiano

Live Action has debuted their second video in The Rosa Acuna Project, designed to show how Planned Parenthood uses manipulative counseling and lies to push teenage girls into getting abortions. This video, which takes place in Milwaukee, WI, is horrifying.

The lies told by the counselor are flagrant and and reprehensible. A girl goes in wanting to get information and is given nothing but lies. And why? Because the Planned Parenthood counselor isn’t a counselor at all, but a salesperson with goods to sell. And those goods are the murders of unborn children, even if it is at the expense of a frightened, confused young girl looking to find help.

The counselor was told that the teen was between six and eight weeks pregnant. When asked if there is a baby, she is told that there is only “fetal matter… no arms, no legs, no heart, no head, no brains”. This is a blatant lie.

At six weeks, there is already a heartbeat and a head. Muscles and skeletal structure are beginning to form. At seven weeks, the arms and legs are beginning to form, and both hemispheres of the brain have become more developed. At eight weeks, the baby has fingers and toes. Nerve cells in the brain are starting to branch out and connect with each other.

But according to the Planned Parenthood counselor, all of this is non-existent. All that exists is “fetal matter”.

The counselor even goes so far as to try to talk the teen out of adoption, calling all of the aborted children “burdens”. The counselor clearly was making the case that, if not for abortion, we would have millions of unwanted children, presumably with no homes. Of course, as Live Action points out in the video, there are far more couples seeking babies to adopt than children who actually get adopted.

Like I said, Planned Parenthood doesn’t have counselors. They have salespeople. Notice how this woman uses a technique you might recognize if you’ve ever bought a vehicle from a dealership, ever. It’s the “buy it now, because this offer won’t be available tomorrow!” technique. The salesperson tries to rush you into doing it right away, because they know you’re less likely to make the deal if you wait until later. It’s awful when you consider that this is someone who is supposed to be helping girls make the best decision for them. They’re going to Planned Parenthood scared, confused, angry maybe… and they’re being manipulated and taken advantage of. Planned Parenthood receives millions in taxpayer funding, and yet they still operate on an abortion-first basis out of greed and bloodlust.

This is not only unethical. It’s illegal. As Live Action points out,

Wisconsin law requires women to receive medically accurate information before obtaining an abortion. The America Medical Association indicates in its Code of Ethics that “the physician’s obligation is to present the medical facts accurately to the patient.”

Lila Rose, UCLA student and president of Live Action, says the new footage further confirms the deceptive and manipulative practices of Planned Parenthood: “Planned Parenthood has an abortion-first mentality that is driven both by ideology and the desire for money,” says Rose. “Since women will often choose against abortion if they learn the scientific facts about the unborn child inside the womb, Planned Parenthood distorts basic facts in an attempt to perform more abortions.”

And this isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin has shown a fondness towards breaking the law. Just last February they were caught in another of Live Action’s undercover stings covering up the sexual abuse of a minor.

I say this every time Live Action comes out with another of their undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood. This is an evil organization. They manipulate young girls, they peddle in eugenics, they cover up the sexual abuse of minors, and they do it all for blood and money, and all with taxpayer subsidies. Thank God for the work of Live Action and Lila Rose, for uncovering the evil and wickedness of this bloodthirsty organization.

Rhetoric like this is so counterproductive.

Chekote on April 13, 2010 at 11:30 AM

Not as counterproductive as ending a innocent life.

kingsjester on April 13, 2010 at 12:23 PM

I still find myself shocked by people who consider destroying life to be their calling.

southsideironworks on April 13, 2010 at 12:25 PM

Time for the Hot Air weekly “let’s feed read meat to the base” session. Beyond tedious.

This or this? (graphic)

How many more of these videos do we need before the funds are cut to Planned Parenthood? There is an dangerous parallel in the way the Nazis denied the humanity in all us and the way Liberals are doing it today.

We have had 40 years of this rhetoric and yet the American people overwhelmingly elected the most pro-choice president in a long time.

Keep resting your assumptions on non sequiturs. It assures us of victory in the long run.

Planned “Parenthood” is a morally and intellectually (but not financially) bankrupt organization and it is tyranny that we are forced to fund these insane ghouls in their hideous work.

If Barry, Nancy and Harry are so proud of PP’s mission, how about assisting in an abortion and showing how painless it is for the fetus and how there is just “fetal matter”.

NoDonkey on April 13, 2010 at 2:09 PM

Hitler was a big eugenicist as was Margaret Sanger yet somehow that\’s been lost in the desire to have irresponsible sex and to supply PP with cash.

First, “overwhelmingly”? 52% is NOT “OVERWHELMING”.

Secondly, do you really believe that his election was because people overwhelmingly want to kill infants?

And he was sooooo up front about how pro-choice he was, wasn’t he?

The woman was absolutely correct in pointing out the responsibility – financially and otherwise – that comes with raising a child.

Chekote on April 13, 2010 at 10:08 AM

Aren’t you lucky that your mother chose to have you?
What a deal for you.
Not such a deal for the millions who had no such advantage.
The culling & eradication of our gene pool.
How lovely.

Haunches on April 13, 2010 at 2:21 PM

Not to mention the fact that, what, only something like a paltry 20-25% or something like that of REGISTERED voters even votes?
I really do wish the real American public would step up to the plate & VOTE.
Bcs I am quite confident that an overwhleming majority of people in this country & even across the world definitely do not want babies to die.

In fairness, this is still a ‘third rail’ to a great many people. But she wasn’t pointing out those facts in balance – instead trying to sell her particular solution.

Informed consent should NOT mean ‘informing’ in a heavily slanted manner. Tell all the facts without embellishment.

Dark-Star on April 13, 2010 at 6:59 PM

Chekote you are a tool. Sadly down deep you know it yet you insist.

CWforFreedom on April 13, 2010 at 9:56 PM

People that have no moral problem with murder would also have no moral problem with lying about murder.
