UPDATE: Playboy Television Show Offends Americans

by Nathan A. Cherry, 10/06/2011

Martinsburg, WV – You might remember me telling you about an upcoming new drama on NBC called “The Playboy Club.” It’s hard to forget the idea of glamorizing the porn industry on primetime television. The new show was supposed to be the flagship of NBC’s new fall lineup, the show that would catapult them back into the ratings game where they have not contended for quite some time.

logo for PlayboyYeah, that didn’t happen.

Amidst a firestorm of calls to cancel the show the network has seen “The Playboy Club” take a nosedive from day one in both viewership and advertising. As I said in an earlier article:

“…a coalition of anti-porn organizations have banded together with the Parents Television Council with a goal of ensuring not one episode of the show ever hits the airwaves. The Parents Television Council has joined others in calling for a boycott of NBC, its affiliates, and advertisers.”

Though the goal of making sure not one episode airs was not achieved, it seems Americans have made their disdain for such trashy programming crystal clear by contacting NBC and by boycotting advertisers. And we all know what happens when consumers begin to support “the other guy” because a particular company is associated with something objectionable, advertisers bail. World Net Daily comments on the loss of advertising for the show:

“Even though Energizer batteries, Boston’s Emmanuel College and Weight Watchers still have ads on the program’s website…Kraft Foods, the UPS Store, Lenovo, Subway, Sprint, PF Chang’s and Campbell’s Soup have pulled their advertising because the companies don’t want their name stained.”

Children In Lingerie! Why Do Four Year Olds Need Bras?

Martinsburg, WV – There seems to be an ever growing list of things parents have to protect their kids from these days. It starts with commercials for inappropriate television shows shown during “family” hours. Then you have the indecent content of the Internet to regulate and keep out of sight. And let’s not forget all the movies, music and magazines that are just waiting to ensnare our kids. (Oops, don’t want to forget the dangers facing kids at school with Planned Parenthood and GLSEN invading our classrooms with unwanted explicit sex education and homosexual indoctrination.)

And parents know all too well the struggle it is to maintain modesty in a world that seems bent on revealing every part of the body with what it flippantly calls “fashion.”

Well now, mom and dad, a new line of clothing aimed at girls 4-12 years old would like to see your daughter hanging out around the house in lingerie! This line of clothing aimed at young girls carries bras, panties, and camisoles for toddlers and young girls. I wish this was a typo, I would be so happy for that last line to be a mistake. But unfortunately, this is all too real.

As distasteful as this line of clothing is, it’s not the only problem. Another major problem is the photos of the young girls posing in the clothing looking far older than they should. This is the blatant sexualization of children for profit; otherwise known as prostitution.

If you think my reaction is too strong or off base you would be in the minority. I was pleasantly surprised to see that many moderate to liberal news outlets were as equally disturbed by this as I am. For instance, Fox news carries the story as has a tone of condemnation for the “fashion” line.

The outlet that first broke the story, Fashionista, squarely denounces the line and its readers are unanimously outraged at the mere existence of such apparel. One reader’s comment made her position clear:

“Is no one deemed worthy of protection in today’s society? Six-year-olds don’t need matching bra and panty sets, red lipstick, teased hair, or ropes of pearls! It should be obvious that the styling of these pictures will only appeal to Humbert Humbert wannabees. Buying from this company supports the gratuitous sexualization of pre-pubescent girls. These photos only celebrate perversion.”

Fashionista went on to say:

“What’s disturbing about Jours Après Lunes is not just the fact that it’s lingerie for people who probably shouldn’t be old enough to even know what lingerie is, but the photographs on their website. The little ‘filles’ are styled like grown women with Amy Winehouse hair, sunglasses and pearls and there are a few instances of Thylane Blondeau-esque seductive gazing and reclining poses.”

At what point, as a society, do we say “enough is enough”? How far do we let things go? We live in a world where child pornography is out of control and pedophiles are writing books on how to have a “responsible” sexual relationship with a child. We’ve seen sex-trafficking given a slap on the wrist by our own government when Planned Parenthood is involved, and groups like Planned Parenthood and GLSEN would love nothing more than to remove parental rights and teach kids about sex (and homosexuality) when they hit first grade.

We wonder why our kids “grow up” so much quicker than many of us did and yet, with programming, the Internet, sexting, and “fashion” like this it should be no surprise.

Parents must be vigilant in protecting their kids. There must be standards of conduct, behavior and dress that apply to every member of the family. Imparting morality, self-respect and character must be more important that being “buddies” with your kids. Sure, they may not like you a whole lot now, but they will love you for your wisdom and protection when they are older.

I can assure you my daughter will never wear something like this, nor will I support any brand, store, retailer, marketer, or anyone else that thinks sexualizing young girls is ok. It’s not ok.

MUST READ: Lila Rose Addresses Deception of Planned Parenthood

By Nathan A. Cherry, 02/16/2011

 
Live Action Films president Lila Rose

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.

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.
