RedTracker| Responding to the undercover video by Live Action’s Lila Rose that Planned Parenthood is “willing to aid and abet sex trafficking and exploitation of minors and young women”, Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, has ordered a retraining of more than 11,000 staff members at more than 800 centers across the US.
Last week, Live Action released undercover videos of four Planned Parenthood health centers in Virginia and one in New Jersey. Planned Parenthood officials fired a staff worker in the New Jersey office, but defended the others by saying they behaved professionally and appropriately reported the incidents to the U.S. Justice Department. via CNN
CNN reports that Live Action has a reputation for doctoring videos. Stuart Schear, vice president for communications at Planned Parenthood, said that a video claiming to show a Planned Parenthood staffer and a supervisor in the Bronx borough of New York City explaining to a pimp how to get abortions for girls as young as 13 is clearly doctored.
Republicans seek to prevent Planned Parenthood, who services one in five American women in her lifetime with reproductive health care information, from receiving any federal funds.
