Planned Parenthood reacts to undercover video
February 1, 2011 - 1:43 pm
This morning we and many others posted an undercover video captured in a New Jersey Planned Parenthood clinic. In that video, a Planned Parenthood employee is seen advising a fake pimp on how to manage his underage sex slaves. The employee’s actions hint, to me at any rate, that such advice comes as a matter of routine from that Planned Parenthood office. That begs the question of just what does Planned Parenthood train its staff to do and say in such situations? What does their ethics training teach them? Do they even have any sort of ethics training regime in place at all?
At any rate, they have responded to the release of the video, stating the blinding obvious.
Phyllis Kinsler, chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey, added that the clinic employee’s behavior, as portrayed on the video, “violates PPCNJ policies, as well as our core values of protecting the welfare of minors and complying with the law, and appropriate action is being taken.”
What “appropriate action” is being taken? Tax payers who foot much of Planned Parenthood’s annual budget have a right to know exactly what action is being taken, when, and by whom. The employee’s actions appear to be criminal in nature. Her behavior also suggests that a full scale investigation of Planned Parenthood is in order, and its $300 million in taxpayer funds should be re-examined. Today’s video is not the first time Planned Parenthood staff have been captured on tape engaging in what appears to be criminal, and obviously unethical, behavior, and the cases have not been limited to one state. Planned Parenthood cannot be allowed to get away with conducting a mere internal investigation and sweeping things under the rug.
