RedState (among other sites) is going to be hammering this one a bit more (life issues aren’t my main patch, so I defer to my colleagues over there who do focus on such things)… but I have to say: this video is appalling on multiple levels.
I mean, where do I start?
- Well, let’s start with the video itself, which shows a man and woman posing as a pimp and a prostitute who went into a Planned Parenthood clinic in NJ to get advice on how to handle STDs, pregnancy tests, and abortions for their underage illegal immigrant sex slaves (seriously, folks, that’s the most accurate term for a fourteen year old illegal immigrant hooker). Which they get from one Amy Woodruff: also, advice on how to keep said sex slaves earning while resting up from their abortions! If any of this sounds familiar, that’s because it’s roughly similar to the sting operation that eviscerated ACORN back in 2009. You’d think that every Leftist organization in the country would have had a Don’t Let This Happen To You seminar in response; apparently, not.
- Then there’s the entire Metropolitan Medical Associates (site’s down, but here’s the Google cache) thing: which neatly subverts any claim that PP might make that they were playing along with the stingers. As Ed Morrissey just noted, Woodruff in the video specifically referred the pair to MMA because MMA was not stringent about checking up on underaged abortions. Aside from the troublesome parallels to the Kermit Gosnell atrocities… well, I am not a lawyer, but this sounds like MMA has a pretty good case here for a libel suit against Planned Parenthood. Unless, of course, it’s not libel because it’s true.
- Lastly, if you read between the lines you’re going to discover what may be the most alarming thing about this story: the footage suggests that whatever internal controls that Planned Parenthood has set up to prevent abuses are routinely being subverted by Planned Parenthood employees themselves. And I would submit that the language that Woodruff used to refer to the woman in her clinic that apparently takes the rules seriously – language that I dare not duplicate if I want to keep any kind of career in blogging – indicates that this is subversion represents a deep-seated hatred and resentment of any kind of restriction on abortion whatsoever.
All in all, I think that this would be an excellent time for Governor Christie to send in the investigators. And auditors. And possibly the state police, or whatever state law-enforcement agency it is that handles this sort of thing.
