Big Government Publishes New Planned Parenthood Sting Video

Live Action founder Lila Rose has published a new–once again, highly suspect, highly edited–video on Andrew Breitbart‘s Big Government site, purporting to show Planned Parenthood workers in Virginia helping a “pimp” to circumnavigate the law to get abortions for his underage prostitutes.

Writes Rose:

Young girls are going into Planned Parenthood clinics every day, too many the victims of abuse. According to the Department of Justice, an estimated 300 to 400 thousand children are trafficked for sex every year.

Some are taken to Planned Parenthood clinics for secret abortions. Instead of reporting the abusers of minors and young women, Planned Parenthood is enabling pimps and predators with their refusal to report abuse and willingness to assist the pimp’s underage prostitution business.

Yuh, huh…

Well, that’s the biggest bullshit we’ve seen in quite some time. If what Rose says is true, then, as a journalist, the natural thing to do would be to find several of these trafficked girls and tell their stories. Then you send reporters out undercover to corroborate the girls’ stories. Instead of, you know, making the whole thing up.

This new video could not be edited in a more patchwork fashion. It reminds us of one of those Arnold Schwarzenegger soundboard phony phone calls.

Breitbart Protege and UCLA Student Lila Rose In the News Over Planned Parenthood Sting

You’d think after James O’Keefe‘s undercover ACORN videos were widely discredited due to cheap editing tricks, the media would stop taking these things seriously. But the young pro-life group Live Action – led by UCLA student Lila Rose, who helped devise the ACORN scam with O’Keefe – is making waves for its latest highly edited undercover sting of Planned Parenthood. A surreptitiously recorded video by the group appears to show a PP worker showing a man claiming to be a sex trafficker how to get treatment for his underage prostitutes. Again, the video is highly edited, so who knows the truth of how the interaction went down. That said, Planned Parenthood has fired the worker in the video.

Live Action says they made the videos in an effort to get Planned Parenthood’s federal funding gutted.
