President of Live Action Films Lila Rose

Martinsburg, WV – I ran across this article written by Live Action Films president Lila Rose and wanted to share it with you. In the ensuing chaos since the release of Live Action’s videos exposing the cover-up of underage sex-trafficking by Planned Parenthood workers, the nation’s largest abortion merchant has tried to deflect attention and mislead the public on what really took place. Rose wrote this article to counter the deception Planned Parenthood is trying to feed the public. It is reprinted in its entirety below.

Lila Rose: The top six Planned Parenthood deceptions in response to our exposé:
by Lila Rose

Over the past week, Live Action has released six videos revealing Planned Parenthood’s willingness to aid and abet the sex traffickers of underage girls. Since the beginning of our release, Planned Parenthood has attacked our organization and attempted to discredit the growing evidence of institutional and rampant abuse cover up. Here is a top six list of some of the deceiving statements that Planned Parenthood has made in just the past few days.

Deception 6) “We reported this to the FBI”

Planned Parenthood wrote the FBI a letter a week AFTER our investigation, only after they realized that Live Action had conducted the sting. They say this themselves. As much as they may pretend, Planned Parenthood was not attempting to help send human traffickers to jail; they were attempting to pre-empt the release of Live Action’s footage.

If Planned Parenthood really cared about reporting potential sex traffickers to authorities, they would have called police while the pimp was in the clinic, or immediately after. Not wasting a minute. Planned Parenthood, where are the reports from the now SIX clinics we’ve released, that you immediately called the police?

Why did all your staffers, instead of refusing service or gathering information from the pimp about his sex ring to inform authorities, GIVE the pimp information about how to access the Planned Parenthood system for secret services?

Deception 5) Live Action Videos Are All “Doctored” and a “Hoax”

We have heard this tired claim from Planned Parenthood every time we release a video. Yet every time we’ve released a video, we post the full, unedited footage online for all to see, and send the full, unedited footage to state and federal authorities. Planned Parenthood can’t argue with the full footage.

Is Planned Parenthood a Sinking Ship? I Hope so!

By Nathan A. Cherry, 02/14/2011

Martinsburg, WV – It seems Planned Parenthood has been the subject of nearly every headline for the last week or so. It’s understandable when video after video after video of the abortion merchant breaking state and federal laws keep popping up in the media. Although it is interesting that mainstream  media networks – NBC, CBS, ABC etc. – largely ignored the criminal activities of PP (With the exception of Fox News).

And by now most everyone knows of the immediate fallout from these undercover videos by pro-life Lila Rose’ group Live Action Films. Examples of this fallout include the immediate firing of the branch manager in New Jersey where the first video was taken. Speaking of New Jersey, Gov. Chris Christie once again defunded Planned Parenthood of all public funding after members of the state legislature sought to reinstate those funds. And Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and AG Ken Cuccinelli said they were “shocked” by the videos and plan to investigate.

Planned Parenthood leaders claimed the whole thing was a hoax and tried to laugh it off. This was no doubt a strategy attempted at reducing media coverage and public scrutiny; it didn’t work. Besides, no one is buying that it’s a hoax if you fire an employee, that doesn’t make any sense. Another reason no buys the “hoax” excuse is that Planned Parenthood released statements saying they would be retraining their staff after seeing incidents on the videos. Why would they need to retrain their staff if, first, this is just a hoax, and second, they believe their staff acted professionally and according to the law? (Something they continue to claim) This doesn’t make any sense either.  

More bad news hit the media waves as New Hampshire has now introduced a bill to cut all federal funds from Planned Parenthood. First New Jersey, now New Hampshire. I wonder how many other states will follow suit and decide that their tax-payers don’t need to fund the criminal and immoral activities of the nation’s largest abortion merchant.

VIDEO: Abby Johnson Comments on Planned Parenthood Undercover Video

By Nathan A. Cherry, 02/10/2011

Martinsburg, WV – The former director of a Bryan, Texas Planned Parenthood clinic, Abby Johnson, has been taking the nation by storm with her now pro-life message. After seeing firsthand the murder of innocent children at the hands of Planned Parenthood she quit her job, joined the pro-life movement, and has been a force ever since.

This video from the Family Research Council and Live Action Films seeks to further expose the perpetual trend toward illegal activity on the part of Planned Parenthood. In it, after a brief clip from the New Jersey clinic where a PP worker helps a man posing as a pimp break the law and facilitate his underage sex-trafficking ring, Abby comments on the video and the fact that this is not isolated behavior.

Watch the video:

Throughout the continued media coverage of the reprehensible behavior of Planned Parenthood employees the organization continues to maintain that these are isolated incidents and not protocol. I wonder how many videos need to be released before it becomes a pattern. How many times does PP need to break the law and hurt underage girls by their reckless behavior before federal authorities step in and say enough is enough?

There is a lot more taking place as a result of these videos being released. We will continue to bring you coverage of the events and ramifications of Planned Parenthood’s actions.

UPDATE: Fallout From Videos Exposing Planned Parenthoods Criminal Activity

By Nathan A. Cherry, 02/08/2011

Martinsburg, WV – Yesterday I brought you the recent videos released by Lila Rose and the Live Action Films group that expose the criminal exploitation of underage girls by five different Planned Parenthood facilities throughout Virginia and New Jersey. Now let me share some other events that have taken place as a result of these videos making waves across the United States.

The battle in New Jersey between Gov. Chris Christie and some state lawmakers that want to use tax-payer funds to fund Planned Parenthood and abortion has been widely reported. Gov. Christie cut the funds once, but lawmakers continued to seek access to those funds through various political maneuvers. A bill recently came back to Gov. Christie seeking to restore the public funding once again, but after seeing the videos release last week Gov. Christie rightly vetoed that bill and permanently cut public funding for Planned Parenthood and abortion in New Jersey. And we applaud Gov. Christie for doing so.

The very day the first video was released the manager of the New Jersey Planned Parenthood where the video was recorded found herself fired. Now, you might be a skeptic like me and believe she is just being moved to another position in another clinic somewhere, but let’s not go there. I’m just happy her criminal behavior is being investigated by the New Jersey Attorney General and several state authorities. If she is charged with criminal action you can bet she will turn on Planned Parenthood and show how this sort of behavior is not “inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable,” as they claim. Rather, this is normal conduct for the criminal organization.

And how did Planned Parenthood respond to the videos being released? Initially they said the whole thing was a “hoax” and laughed it off. But as more videos were released they realized they would have to address the situation and bean looking for ways to do “damage control.” I’m curious though, if the whole thing was a “hoax” why did PP suspend the New Jersey manager immediately? Do you suspend someone over a hoax?

VIDEO: Undercover Footage Shows Planned Parenthood Helping Pimp Cover-Up Sex Trafficking Ring

VIDEO: Undercover Footage Shows Planned Parenthood Helping Pimp Cover-Up Sex Trafficking Ring
By Nathan A. Cherry, 02/07/2011

Martinsburg, WV – I hope you’ve had a chance to watch this disgusting video from Lila Rose’ Live Action Films. In it you will find a Planned Parenthood worker helping to cover up an underage sex-trafficking ring for a man pretending to be a pimp. You can’t make garbage like this up. Take a few moments to watch the video below and see for yourself.

Video #1 of Planned Parenthood in NJ helping to cover up underage sex-trafficking ring for a pimp:

But wait, that’s not all. Almost as if she could hear the cries of the left saying “that was just an isolated incident,” Rose and the Live Action Films crew recorded a second undercover sting operation at a Planned Parenthood in Virginia. The point? This is NOT an isolated incident; this is the operating protocol for Planned Parenthood. Their goal is to perform abortions and they will stop at nothing, including breaking the law and helping to pimp 14 year old girls in order to do it. Here, watch this second video:

Video #2 from Virginia Planned Parenthood:

And just in case your stomach juices aren’t churning, your blood isn’t boiling, your fists aren’t clenched and your teeth aren’t grinding yet; here’s three more videos that show much the same thing! So that’s five videos that show Planned Parenthood covering up the sex-trafficking of underage girls. Does that sound like an isolated or coincidental occurrence? Hardly.

Let’s be sure to salute and say a big “Thank-You” to president Obama for giving $350 million of our tax dollars to this bottom feeder organization that seeks to protect people that exploit our children. Our money is helping this law breaking criminal organization keep their doors open. Unacceptable.

Stay tuned for an in-depth story coming tomorrow on the events of the last week and how Lila Rose and Live Action Films have once again shown Planned Parenthood to be a worthless criminal organization desiring to exploit our children and push for more abortions.

Nervous Abortion Activists a Good Sign for Roe v. Wade Case

By Nathan A. Cherry

Martinsburg, W.V. – Last week the Supreme Court of the United States lifted a century old ban on corporate political spending. In an article at Politico.com it was said that last Thursday’s ruling “declared unconstitutional a law which has been in place since 1907 barring corporations from involvement in federal elections.” The stunning ruling has some pro-abortion advocates nervous and pro-life advocates are gearing up for a fight.

A political wind is starting to blow that says time could be optimal for a challenge to the 1973 Supreme Court decision in the Roe v. Wade case that legalized abortion in the U.S.

Talking heads and pundits are speculating that if the SCOTUS is willing to break trend and overlook precedent in the McCain- Feingold case that they may be willing to do the same regarding Roe v. Wade. Adding fuel to the fire in this volatile political climate are the many pro-life marches and rallies taking place, the polls showing a majority of American’s favoring pro-life policies, the voices of women scarred by abortion, and the illegal and often inhuman practices of such groups as Planned Parenthood that are being brought to light.

The Majority of Americans Choose Life

Now it’s time for Congress to serve the people that elected them by banning federally funded abortion.

By Nathan A. Cherry

Martinsburg, W.V. – Though the issue of defining marriage is certainly front and center in our national spotlight presently. Not far behind is the issue of abortion. In particular is the attempt of government to further legalize and provide abortion services through federal funding via the healthcare legislation currently being debated in Congress.

It is a nearly undeniable fact that more Americans are “pro-life” than “pro-choice.” A fact I’m certain is not lost on death merchants like Planned Parenthood; who saw, incidentally, more facilities close in 2009 than ever before. Not only are they seeing facilities close at rapidly rising rates, they are seeing their directors turn pro-life and become vocal on the abortion giant’s efforts to ramp up its abortion numbers.

And how could we forget Senator Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) 11th hour betrayal of Nebraskan’s and pro-lifers everywhere when he became the needed 60th signature to advance the healthcare overhaul legislation despite his repeated promises not to do so considering its pro-abortion language. Senator Nelson has been fighting to save his political career in Nebraska since that fateful decision. Recently Nelson has pledged to vote against the final draft of the healthcare bill if any of the language he drafted on abortion is changed or watered down. It may be too late for Nelson’s political career and, more importantly, for the millions of innocent children that will be murdered thanks to his efforts.

To top it off, democrats and the “transparent” Obama administration seem content to shut the public out of the final round of healthcare debate, opting to talk behind closed doors in secret. Despite requests from CNN and CSPAN for the talks to be televised and for the public to be given access to them, lawmakers have been less than amiable. This, of course, causes questions of what liberals could be hiding from the public. (So much for transparency!) Even the Washington Times is attacking the blatant attempt of democrats to hide behind closed doors; even urging republicans to bring Congress to a halt in order to allow American access to healthcare negotiations.

The Rosa Acuna Project, updated

An update on a post from earlier this week.  After being exposed for avoiding the terms, “heart beat” or “baby” when pressuring counseling a young woman about an an abortion, it is now reported that the same clinic is the recipient of thousands of taxpayer (your) dollars:

Today, a Wisconsin pro-life group informed LifeNews.com that the county government where the Grand Chute, Wisconsin Planned Parenthood is located is funding the abortion business in question.

An open records request conducted by Pro-Life Wisconsin earlier this year revealed that, in 2008, five Wisconsin counties wrote checks to Planned Parenthood.

The pro-life group told LifeNews.com that Outagamie County, where the Appleton-area Planned Parenthood is located, paid Planned Parenthood a total of $10,872.59 in 2008.

Pro-Life Wisconsin also noted that the Appleton Planned Parenthood received $429,462.88 in 2007 under Wisconsin’s Family Planning Waiver Program.

In total, Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin received $15.82 million form the state for the family planning program that allows minors as young as 15 to receive free birth control without their parents’ knowledge or consent.

via Govt Funds Wisconsin Planned Parenthood That Misled Women on Abortion.

Which makes one wonder . . .

Mona Lisa Smiles….again?!

Live Action films has produced yet another video in which a Planned Parenthood clinic worker helps a minor raped by a man twice her age avoid the law – this time also deftly working around parental consent laws.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJt3OVIdhUk&eurl=http://www.liveaction.org/monalisa/tucson/&feature=player_embedded]

In West Virginia, a minor does not have to get a parent’s consent to have an abortion if a judge deems the child competent to make her own decision. And, if FOCA becomes law, she wouldn’t even need a judge.
