Video: Planned Parenthood offering advice to pimps? Update: Did PP call the feds?

posted at 10:12 am on February 1, 2011 by Ed Morrissey

Live Action released another undercover expose of Planned Parenthood today, this time at the Perth Amboy, New Jersey clinic. Posing as a pimp and a prostitute, the pair asked the PP manager how best to avoid legal consequences while getting prostitutes as young as 14 and 15 abortions and tests for STDs. Legally, PP has to report any instances of underage girls being sexually exploited, but Amy Woodruff instead tells the two undercover reporters how to lie to avoid detection — and gives them the address of a clinic to get abortions where auditors don’t check records:

A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaches a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers how to to secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their female underage sex slaves, and make their whole operation “look as legit as possible” in an undercover video released this morning.

Clinic manager Amy Woodruff, LPN, of Planned Parenthood Central New Jersey’s Perth Amboy center, warns the pimp and his prostitute to have their trafficked underage girls lie about their age to avoid mandatory reporting laws, promising, “even if they lie, just say, ‘Oh he’s the same age as me, 15,’…it’s just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesn’t matter if their partner’s the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report.” She says, “For the most part, we want as little information as possible.”

Woodruff also recommends how the pimp can get his prostitutes cheaper contraception by claiming they are “students”: “If they’re minors, put down that they’re students. Yeah, just kind of play along that they’re students–we want to make it look as legit as possible.”

If one of the young trafficked girls needs an abortion, Woodruff refers the pimp and prostitute to the Metropolitan Medical Association, where “their protocols aren’t as strict as ours and they don’t get audited the same way that we do.” The prostitute in the video asks how long after the abortion until the girls can have sex again, and when Woodruff says “minimum of 2 weeks,” she asks what sex acts the girls could still do to make money. Woodruff advises, “Waist up, or just be that extra action walking by” to advertise sex to potential clients.

The video speaks for itself, but the part that caught my attention was the referral to an outside abortion clinic. In the wake of the Kermit Gosnell case, this calls into question just how much Planned Parenthood knows about clinics like Gosnell’s. Woodruff refers the two to the MMA because no one checks on their operations.  For a woman who insists later in the video that these underage girls prostituting for the pimp in front of her that they deserve care without Mom finding out what’s going on, that shows an utter lack of concern over the “care” they actually receive.

Abortion providers insisted in the wake of Gosnell’s indictment that his was an outlier, not representative of the abortion industry as a whole.  This exchange at the nation’s largest provider of abortions makes rogue operations seem a lot more connected and mainstream than they’d like to admit.

Update: The Anchoress wonders where the media is on the Gosnell story.  A serial killer with potentially hundreds or thousands of victims — and no one seems interested in covering it?  Forget it, Jake … it’s AbortionTown.

Update II: TPM Muckraker reported a week ago that Planned Parenthood’s national office notified the Department of Justice of the pair’s activities:

In the course of five days this month, eight Planned Parenthood clinics in five states and D.C. reported getting the same visit: A man said he needed treatment for a sexually transmitted disease and then, once alone with a staff member, implied that he ran an interstate sex trafficking ring that involves minors and illegal immigrants.

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America thinks that the visits, which happened between Jan. 11 and 15, are part of a James O’Keefe-style “sting.” But the group called in the FBI anyway.

“These multi-state visits from men claiming to be engaged in sex trafficking of minors may be a hoax,” Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, wrote in a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder last week. “However, if the representations made by this man are true,” she wrote, they indicate violations of several sex trafficking, prostitution and child sex laws.

It seems that the national office figured out what happened — but that doesn’t explain the enthusiasm with which this clinic advised the undercover reporters, nor of the manager’s offer to personally streamline the process for the putative pimp, either.  Plus, if she played along with the pair, why then refer them to MMA for abortions because MMA doesn’t get audited stringently?

The low point is where they start talking about importing underaged illegals and getting them checked out and on birth control immediately upon arrival, so they can be put straight to work.

…question just how much Planned Parenthood knows about clinics like Gosnell’s.

It’s pretty clear there is an unofficial acceptance and understanding. “We don’t do those cases over here, no no no, but … just go over to this other clinic and they’ll take care of it, no questions asked.”

It is supremely ironic that the same progressives who want to regulate everything from Big Oil to little gardeners act surprised that a multi-billion dollar industry, operating in silence and unregulated for nearly 40 years, just might have more than a few really bad apples on the tree.

csdeven on February 1, 2011 at 10:44 AM

Yup. That’s really the point if it all, isn’t it?

Once you’re willing to cross that line … what won’t you do?

My baby is 14 weeks now. Last week I saw her toes and fingers and ears.

Abortion is legal in most states, on demand, until (at least) 24 weeks.

It’s beyond evil. It has a place alongside slavery and the Holocaust. It is that bad.

And once you’re willing to participate or even defend it, if you can actually take a 24 week old baby and murder it … what moral line do you not cross?

This is the whole point. The only point.

——————-

And here’s a bitterly ironic aside: the fact that liberals refuse to even consider the above is the ONE thing that prevents them from being taken seriously in other areas.

How can you expect me to listen to you when you talk about unemployment benefits or gay rights or saving polar bears and minnows or anything else … when you won’t even pause for an instant to question whether you might be supporting the butchering of a million innocent lives a year.

Every time I hear a liberal speak, I hold his point up beside his support of abortion. And every time, whatever he is saying gets lost in his embrace of absolute evil.

It’s really hard for care what YOU think about immigration reform when YOU won’t listen, for one second, for one tiny second, about the murder of a million children a year.

Professor Blather on February 1, 2011 at 11:04 AM

…and gives them the address of a clinic to get abortions where auditors don’t check records

OK, great, the Evil Conservative Propaganda Machine just caught one of a million moonbat drones in action. But when is the abortion clinic itself going to get this treatment?

This is like doing an “expose” of Nazis by showing how rude the train conductors are. Does that really accomplish anything besides taking attention away from what’s going on INSIDE the concentration camps?

logis on February 1, 2011 at 11:06 AM

This is some kind of parallel universe and I’m sure the clinic workers would claim they’re protecting young women’s autonomy from the destructive depredations of fanatical right wing busybodies. I’m pretty clueless what kind of person goes into this line of work except to surmise that she has confused her supposed identification with teenaged girls with a whole lot of resentment against somebody or something all the while becoming as jaded as any streetwalker. But hey, what’s the Libertarian Party position?

I did the same thing with the Laughner coverage. That was the first story in decades where a Democrat politician was involved in a crime, but you didn’t have to play “Guess The Party” when reading the news coverage. There were no intentionally vague titles like “Congressman this,” or “Rep. that.”

If anything, all the stories made it pretty clear: “Psycho Killer With Completely Unknown Motives Murders DEMOCRAT Politician!”

It’ll never happen. I made the analogy to Nazis lightly. The liberal ranks are held infinitely tighter.

Somebody who just gave names or information to a persistent inquisitor could always claim at least a tiny degree of “innocence.” The Nazis didn’t make each collaborator personally carry each victim into the abattoir. But the Church Of Liberalism does demand that sacrament. And once you’ve done that, there’s no turning back. You are theirs for life: body, mind and soul.

Liberals are the ultimate partners in crime. If any of them, even for the barest fraction of a second, consider the possibility that what they are doing might be in some way “wrong,” they will start screaming and never stop. And they will all do literally ANYTHING to avoid that pain.

What else would we expect from pro-abortion absolutists? No one who says they are “pro-choice” is really just that, they are pro-abortion and will justify all the horrors associated with abortion in order to keep it legal. This is a politically correct version of Nazism via Liberalism. Instead of dehumanizing the Jews like the Nazis did, Liberals dehumanize all of humanity. A note to Christians: you cannot be pro-choice or support those who are.

http://www.bluecollarphilosophy.com/christians-cannot-be-pro-choice

Christians should not be about the tolerance or outright support of infanticide and the cover of underage girls getting raped or used as prostitutes.

BOR covered Gosnell very briefly, as I recall it was last Monday. I believe Special Report also did a miniscule segment on it last week, stripped of the horrifying details.

Something has happened to Fox News in the past couple of months. I suspect Murdoch or Ailes sent out a message to all there to turn down anything critical of Bammie and the democratics. That’s not surprising, it’s a business after all. More troubling is what from the administration led to that sudden change? Are the on-air folks at Fox News not allowed to tell us about it?

We really do need a conservative tv news network along the lines of MSNBC.
