Deception 6) We reported this to the FBI
Planned Parenthood wrote the FBI a letter a week after our investigation, only after they realized that Live Action had conducted the sting.They say this themselves. As much as they may pretend, Planned Parenthood was not attempting to help send human traffickers to jail; they were attempting to pre-empt the release of Live Actions footage.
If Planned Parenthood really cared about reporting potential sex traffickers to authorities, they would have called police while the pimp was in the clinic, or immediately after. Not wasting a minute. Planned Parenthood, where are the reports from the now SIX clinics weve released, that you immediately called the police?
Why did all your staffers, instead of refusing service or gathering information from the pimp about his sex ring to inform authorities, GIVE the pimp information about how to access the Planned Parenthood system for secret services?
Deception 5) Live Action Videos Are All Doctored and a Hoax
We have heard this tired claim from Planned Parenthood every time we release a video. Yet every time weve released a video, we post the full, unedited footage online for all to see, and send the full, unedited footage to state and federal authorities. Planned Parenthood cant argue with the full footage.
See Vice-President Stuart Schear on camera claiming our tapes are doctored, then admitting he hasnt even seen them.
Planned Parenthood, if you really think our videos are fake, doctored and a hoax, why did you yesterday claim that you will be retraining your entire staff of 11,000?
Deception 4) We are retraining our entire staff of 11,000″

WASHINGTON, D.C., February 10, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) - New undercover audio released today by Live Action reveals a Washington, D.C. Planned Parenthood facility willing to aid and abet a self-identified sex trafficker exploiting underage girls, including girls imported from other countries. This facility is the seventh implicated in a series of releases by the pro-life media organization in the last two weeks.
The new audio features a woman posing as a prostitute as well as a manager of young girls for sex work meeting with a staffer at Planned Parenthoods Egypt Center on Minnesota Avenue, NE. The staffer counsels the sex trafficker on how to get the girls tested for STDs, the best way for them to get an abortion, and how to work the system if they dont have health insurance.
The pattern in DC, just miles from Capitol Hill and the White House, is clear: presented with information that underage girls are being exploited for commercial sex, Planned Parenthoods again shows its willingness to aid and abet sex traffickers, said Lila Rose, president of Live Action. An institutional crisis has consumed Planned Parenthood at the highest levels. The reason their story has changed five times in reaction to our investigation is because they know theyre guilty.
Sex trafficking in the U.S. has increased dramatically in recent years, and the pattern revealed by our investigation shows sex traffickers have no better friend than Planned Parenthood, she continued. Untold damage has already been done to countless girls and young women, whose safety and health are clearly at risk because organizations like Planned Parenthood provide confidentiality and safe haven for sex traffickers.
The Planned Parenthood Federation of America has claimed that the videos are doctored, though Live Action has released its full footage on each facility.
Stuart Schear, vice president for communications with the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, reiterated this claim following Tuesdays release of footage on a New York facility. Yet Schear admitted to a member of the production team for Fox News OReilly Factor that he hadnt actually seen the tape.
This week the abortion giant announced that they will be retraining employees to ensure reporting of abuse.
Lila Rose questioned the motivations for this retraining in an op-ed yesterday, in which she sought to debunk six deceptions used by Planned Parenthood in response to the latest series of stings. Rose points out that the organization also called for re-training after a December 2008 video showed a Planned Parenthood worker willing to cover up sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl. Clearly, that re-training (whatever it was) didnt last very long, she notes.
How exactly will Planned Parenthood be training its staff? she asks further. Will the training be a special seminar on how to recognize Live Action cameras?
Live Action has previously released more than a dozen hidden camera videos from ten states, revealing a pattern of illegal Planned Parenthood activities including cover-up of sexual abuse of minors, the skirting of parental consent laws, citing unscientific and fabricated medical information to manipulate women to have abortions, and Planned Parenthoods willingness to accept donations earmarked to abort African-American babies.
A transcript of the audio from Washington, D.C. is available here.____________________________________________________
How many of us let headlines create lines in our foreheads? With TV and internet reports around the clock, it's easy to become manic-depressive news junkiesand that's why I'm often called to be a contrarian. Are you feeling good about "revolution" in Egypt? See "Leadership in a vacuum" in this issue. Are you feeling bad about domestic trends? Read on for good news concerning young Christians and pro-lifers.
First, let's take on pundits and pollsters who purportedly provide answers to the age-old question, What's the matter with kids today? You've probably heard a typical moan: They're leaving the church, so gotta become relevant, gotta take up liberal positionsor else the kids are gone. You may even have seen shows answering YES to the question of "Are Young Evangelicals Skewing More Liberal?" (ABC) and "Are Young Evangelicals Leaning Left?" (PBS).
Hmm. Baylor University researchers Byron Johnson and Buster Smith, after crunching polling data about evangelical political identifications and attitudes, have concluded that (1) younger evangelicals hold views similar to older evangelicals on most issues, and (2) young evangelicals remain significantly more conservative than non-evangelicals on those issues.
Johnson and Smith found that age, among non- evangelicals, is an important predictor of political stance: 50 percent of the young are liberal but only 33 percent of those older. Among evangelicals, though, 70 percent of the young are conservative, 74 percent of the older: No big deal. Maybe non-evangelicals have to learn from hard experience that liberalism doesn't work, and evangelicals know that from the Bible. (Only about one of 10 evangelicals, young or old, calls himself "liberal.")
The conservatism of young evangelicals is apparent issue by issue. Some 72 percent say the use of marijuana is always or almost always wrong, compared to 73 percent of older evangelicals. You may have heard that young evangelicals accept homosexual marriage, but the survey says otherwise: The old (83 percent) oppose it, but the young (85 percent) oppose it even more. Only on issues like "global warming" is there a young/old divide among evangelicals, with the young much more concerned.
And here's the particularly good news: Younger evangelicals are more pro-life than older ones. To take the hardest case, 61 percent of the younger say abortion is wrong even if pregnancy is the result of rape, compared to 50 percent of their elders. Only one in 10 evangelicals, whether young or old, says abortion is right if a family can't afford another child.
Despite Washington temperatures in the 20s on Jan. 24, tens of thousands of younger evangelicals put their legs where their hearts are by joining the annual March for Life. Even the usually snarky Washington Post admitted that "more young people appeared to be participating than in previous years." A decade ago many pro-life leaders worried about the graying of the movement: Those concerns are now gone.
On Feb. 1, 22-year-old Lila Rose threw Planned Parenthood into a tizzy by showing with an undercover video how a New Jersey branch of America's largest abortion provider was happy to help a supposed pimp grow his sex-trafficking business with 14- and 15-year-old victims. Take a look at her sensational work on YouTube.
The abortion lobby, of course, is fighting back with attempts to discredit Rose and pro-life crisis pregnancy centers. Attacks on crisis pregnancy centers by abortion's media allies are nothing new: My wife and I confronted one in Austin 25 years ago, and we've seen the same smear attempts every five years or so elsewhere. We played Austin American-Statesman editors a tape that showed how their hatchet-woman twisted quotations and facts, but most reporters aren't so sloppy.
So we need to keep fighting. Happily, a judge late last month declared the Baltimore City Council's attempt at harassing crisis pregnancy centers (CPC) there to be a violation of freedom of speech. That decision may give pause to the Washington state legislature and the New York City Council, both considering anti-CPC bills. A Bronx Rally to Save the Life Centers on Feb. 7 drew pastors and other Christians, including leaders from predominantly black churches angry that abortionists kill most African-American babies.
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." That's the concluding line of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, and Christians always beat against the currentbut some worried two years ago that we might be swamped. No way. Thanks be to God.

Complete title: We Are Living in the Midst of the Greatest Human Genocide in the History of Humanity, Rep. Franks Says of Legalized Abortion
(CNSNews.com) Rep. Trent Franks (R-N.M.) said on Thursday that because modern technology can reveal fetal development in the womb, Americans are starting to wake up and realize the reality that abortion ends a human life.
And I am convinced more than ever that were asking that real question, Does abortion really kill a baby? Franks said at a press conference on Capitol Hill to discuss the latest efforts by Republicans in the House to introduce legislation to defund Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers that receive taxpayer dollars through Title X Family Planning provisions.
Because, ladies and gentlemen, if abortion really does kill a baby, then in this, the seat of freedom, we are living in the midst of the greatest human genocide in the history of humanity, Franks said.
Franks said there are three other realities of abortion that include consequences for the unborn child, the mother and society as a whole.
No. 1, a nameless little baby dies a lonely, tragic death, Franks said. No. 2, a mother is never the same, no matter what anybody tells you; and No. 3 all the gifts that that little baby might have brought to this human family are lost forever.
Franks said he believes Americans understand that all of Gods children have that divine image stamped on their souls and then he quoted Thomas Jefferson.
It was Thomas Jefferson [who] said that the care and protection of human life, and not its destruction, is the only object of good government, Franks said.
Franks was one of more than a dozen House members who joined members of the House Pro-life Womens Caucus and pro-life advocacy groups, all of which called for legislation to defund Planned Parenthood.
The campaign has taken on new steam in light of recent undercover videos produced by the pro-life youth advocacy group Live Action that show Planned Parenthood staff at abortion clinics in numerous states telling actors who claimed to be sex traffickers seeking abortion for their underage female workers that they would not ask questions about the girls or the pimp who was with them.
Franks said the videos and revelations at the press conference about other alleged crimes documented in past videos by Live Action, including Planned Parenthood staff not reporting sexual abuse of underage girls, incredibly enlightening.
But the bottom line here is this is an organization thats been the principal force behind the killing of nearly 50 million little Americans, Franks said.
When asked by CNSNews.com how Congress could defund Planned Parenthood with a pro-abortion president like Barack Obama in the White House, Franks said the Constitution requires that all federal funding begin in the House.
I hope the people on the relevant committees, appropriations committees, have the courage to do whats right in that regard because a government is what it spends, and we are spending money killing our own children, and a country that is awash in the blood of its children cant survive in the kind of republic that we have, Franks said.
