Must-Read: The righteousness in Hobby Lobby’s cause
**Posted by Phineas
I knew this was going to happen.
When Andrew Breibart released Live Action’s video of a Planned Parenthood clinic manager in New Jersey abetting teenage prostitution and human trafficking, I had a feeling more was to come. It wasn’t Breitbart’s pattern to drop just one bomb; no, he fires an opening shot, lets the other guy react and make a mistake, and then hits him again and again until his position crumbles. In the case of Planned Parenthood, what happened to ACORN seems to be happening to Planned Parenthood:
Today Live Action released video of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Virginia abetting teenage prostitution and covering up the sexual abuse of minors:
From Lila Rose’s post at Big Government:
Our investigative team has just released the second undercover video revealing Planned Parenthood counseling a pimp on how to obtain secret abortions for his under age sex slaves, by bypassing Virginia parental consent laws meant to protect children. In the footage, taken January 12, 2011, undercover actors tell the Planned Parenthood worker that they are involved in sex work, and manage 14 and 15 year old girls, “some of them from out of state, out of country.” The Planned Parenthood staffer assures him it is confidential, that “we see people here from all walks of life,” and goes on to coach the pimp how to obtain secret abortions for his sex slaves by circumventing Virginia law that require parental consent for underage abortions.
Rose and Live Action have forwarded the Virginia video and documentation to Commonwealth and federal authorities, requesting an investigation. While I still doubt the Feds will get on this (at least, not until it’s so big that even Holder and Obama can ignore it), VA Attorney General Cuccinelli has shown himself to be an aggressive prosecutor. A crucial question will be whether the staff at this clinic reported the crime.
Beyond just Virginia, however, the fact that that the violations appear to occur in multiple states raises legitimate questions about the national Planned Parenthood operation, possibly exposing them to conspiracy and racketeering charges. Especially if, as I suspect, this isn’t the last video.
Planned Parenthood gets over $300,000,000 per year of our tax dollars, and at least some of it appears to be being used to fund illegal abortions for minors and to facilitate sex-slavery. As these videos show, it’s well past time for House Republicans to start asking some very serious questions — and to defund Planned Parenthood.
