Planned Parenthood: The Real War on Women
It has become popular belief that Republicans and social and religious
conservatives are waging a war on women, and Planned Parenthood is continuously
portrayed as one of the main victims of this war. But there is mounting evidence that
Planned Parenthood is the real perpetrator of the war on women.
Planned Parenthood and the left continuously spout the phrase “War on Women.” They
claim conservatives have launched an “assault on women’s health and freedom," simply because they stand strongly against the HHS contraception mandate, promote a
life free from the scourge of abortion for men, women, and their children, and support
the federal defunding of Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar organization that receives over $487 million in
taxpayer funding each year. They are the largest abortion chain in the U.S. and commit
over 300,000 abortions every year.
Live Action, a pro-life human rights organization that uses new media and investigative
journalism to expose human rights violations in the United States, has repeatedly
proven that Planned Parenthood is an organization that does anything but stand up
for women and human rights.
The first investigation launched by Live Action in 2008 showed pro-life activist Lila Rose posing as a 13-year-old girl who was pregnant with
the child of her 32-year-old boyfriend. In the video footage captured in various states,
PP repeatedly violated mandatory report laws for statutory rape and gave Lila direction
on how to get an abortion without having to tell her parents or reporting her
case to the authorities. Statutory rape laws are in place to protect young girls from
situations like this, but PP violated the law in numerous states and aided the suppositional 32-year-old
who was abusing this young girl.
Last February, Live Action launched another investigation in which two actors posed
as a pimp and a prostitute and went into Planned Parenthood’s around the country,
inquiring about abortions for young girls working in their sex ring. The undercover
footage showed Planned Parenthood employees coaching the sex traffickers on how
to secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their female underage
sex slaves, plus how to make their whole operation “look as legit as possible.” Instead of reporting the sex traffickers to the authorities, they gave the pimp and the prostitute advice on how
to secure their "services," obtain discounts, and even business advice on how their
prostitutes could "perform" while healing from their PP abortion.
Instead of coming clean about repeatedly aiding and abetting the abuse of women, the organization tried to portray itself as a much-needed entity for women's health. Following the release of the
trafficking videos, President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards claimed that if PP were defunded, “millions of women
would lose their healthcare access, not to abortion... but, to basic family planning and
After this interview with Richards aired, Live Action launched yet another investigation to
expose the truth that PP does not provide mammograms as Richards (and many other
vocal PP supporters) claimed. This investigation compiled phone calls to Planned
Parenthood's all across the country, with PP employees admitting that PP did
not provide "life-saving mammograms."
During the efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, celebrities strongly voiced their
support for the abortion giant and proclaimed “I stand with Planned Parenthood.” These
celebrities included Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Maggie Gyllenhaal,
who told Glamour magazine, “the assaults on women's health care have been fast and
Ms. Gyllenhaal said, “Planned Parenthood is there for every woman.” Maggie - where
was Planned Parenthood when the sexually abused girl, the victim of a 32-year-old
statutory rapist, walked into their office and told them she needed help? And where was
PP when human traffickers admitted that they were holding numerous young women
captive in their sex ring? In the times that women need them most, Planned Parenthood
has done nothing.
Planned Parenthood and their supporters claim that conservatives have launched a
war on women and claim “they are watching” us and they "stand with PP." Planned
Parenthood may be "watching," but they are watching for the extra dollars they
can make off of underage sexual abuse victims with secret abortions. The truth is, if
you “stand with PP,” you stand with abusers, human traffickers, and statutory rapists.
Planned Parenthood is an organization that is actually harming women left and right. Will you
stand with PP or against them?
Don't take my word for it; see for yourself. Watch and share these videos to make sure you or someone you love is not
Planned Parenthood's next victim. Stop the real war on women.
