It has become popular belief that Republicans and social and religiousconservatives are waging a war on women, and Planned Parenthood is continuouslyportrayed as one of the main victims of this war. But there is mounting evidence thatPlanned Parenthood is the real perpetrator of the war on women.
Planned Parenthood and the left continuously spout the phrase “War on Women.” Theyclaim conservatives have launched an “assault on women’s health and freedom,” simply because they stand strongly against the HHS contraception mandate, promote alife free from the scourge of abortion for men, women, and their children, and supportthe federal defunding of Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood is a billion-dollar organization that receives over $487 million intaxpayer funding each year. They are the largest abortion chain in the U.S. and commitover 300,000 abortions every year.
Live Action, a pro-life human rights organization that uses new media and investigativejournalism to expose human rights violations in the United States, has repeatedlyproven that Planned Parenthood is an organization that does anything but stand upfor 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 withthe 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 directionon how to get an abortion without having to tell her parents or reporting hercase to the authorities. Statutory rape laws are in place to protect young girls fromsituations like this, but PP violated the law in numerous states and aided the suppositional 32-year-oldwho was abusing this young girl.
Last February, Live Action launched another investigation in which two actors posedas 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 undercoverfootage showed Planned Parenthood employees coaching the sex traffickers on howto secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their female underagesex 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 howto secure their “services,” obtain discounts, and even business advice on how theirprostitutes 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 thetrafficking videos, President of Planned Parenthood Cecile Richards claimed that if PP were defunded, “millions of womenwould lose their healthcare access, not to abortion… but, to basic family planning andmammograms.”
After this interview with Richards aired, Live Action launched yet another investigation toexpose the truth that PP does not provide mammograms as Richards (and many othervocal PP supporters) claimed. This investigation compiled phone calls to PlannedParenthood’s all across the country, with PP employees admitting that PP didnot provide “life-saving mammograms.”
During the efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, celebrities strongly voiced theirsupport for the abortion giant and proclaimed “I stand with Planned Parenthood.” Thesecelebrities included Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Maggie Gyllenhaal,who told Glamour magazine, “the assaults on women’s health care have been fast andfurious.”
Ms. Gyllenhaal said, “Planned Parenthood is there for every woman.” Maggie – wherewas Planned Parenthood when the sexually abused girl, the victim of a 32-year-oldstatutory rapist, walked into their office and told them she needed help? And where wasPP when human traffickers admitted that they were holding numerous young womencaptive in their sex ring? In the times that women need them most, Planned Parenthoodhas done nothing.
Planned Parenthood and their supporters claim that conservatives have launched awar on women and claim “they are watching” us and they “stand with PP.” PlannedParenthood may be “watching,” but they are watching for the extra dollars theycan make off of underage sexual abuse victims with secret abortions. The truth is, ifyou “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 youstand 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 notPlanned Parenthood’s next victim. Stop the real war on women.
