It must be rough being in the senior management of Planned Parenthood these days. Just think of it, it’s become public knowledge that your founder, Margaret Sanger, openly discussed the extermination of the “Black Race,” and it just so happens that the majority of your facilities are near minority neighborhoods.
So, then after getting caught so many times, the head executioners at Planned Parenthood are understandably gun shy, and fear that they might be exposed again. The Huffington Post has the details, via The Blaze…
And despite their willingness to believe that widespread sexism is at the root of nearly everything wrong with the country, including opposition to them, somehow the idea that their own clients might be sexist has them crying foul and wondering if they’re the target of a “sting operation.” The Huffington Post reports:
“For years opponents of reproductive health and Planned Parenthood have engaged in secret videotaping tactics with fictitious patient scenarios and selective editing in an attempt to promote misinformation about Planned Parenthood and our services,” Cooney said. “As with the prior instances, we anticipate that once again this group, likely in coordination with a broad range of anti-abortion leaders, will soon launch a propaganda campaign with the goal of discrediting Planned Parenthood, and, ultimately, restricting women’s health.”
The most likely group behind the campaign, Planned Parenthood suspects, is anti-abortion activist group Live Action, which has a history of paying actors to walk into Planned Parenthood clinics and act out various controversial scenarios in an attempt to catch the family planning provider’s staffers doing something illegal or immoral on tape. A recent operation involved actors posing as pimps and prostitutes engaged in human trafficking and seeking birth control, STD testing and other family planning services. HuffPost’s Ryan Grim reported in February 2011 that Live Action heavily edited the videos they gathered to alter the meaning of conversations and falsely imply that Planned Parenthood is complicit in sex trafficking, but conservative lawmakers and media outlets cited the group’s videos in numerous subsequent political attacks against the family planning provider.[…]
Of course, The HuffPo neglects to mention that the full and unedited footage was released by Live Action, the principal group engaged in exposing Planned Parenthood.
At any rate, Planned Parenthood is concerned that they are going to be caught, yet again, by groups like Live Action. But, their solution is so very simple…
Don’t do unethical/illegal things.
It really is that simple, however, I think they will find that impossible. If an organization engages in the killing of babies, it might not be surprising that they have a hard time with ethical standards as a whole. In the end, as long as they engage in unethical behavior, people will eventually discover and expose them. But, like any other liberal entity, they will follow the conventional strategy-make it harder to get caught, and then attack the people that expose them if they are caught. It’s so predictable, it’s hard to miss.
