Planned Parenthood Caught in Undercover Video Sting Offering Advice, Treatment to Pimp, Child Sex Slaves
A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey has been caught on video offering advice and treatment to anti-abortion activists posing as a pimp and his prostitute. The video, made by the the group Live Action, shows Amy Woodruff, manager of Planned Parenthood’s Perth Amboy, NJ clinic, aiding and abetting the sex trafficking of minors, a federal offense. The shocking advice that Woodruff offered the pimp involved covering up crimes ranging from illegal immigration to sex trafficking to statutory rape.
The undercover “pimp” freely admitted that his girls were underage and in the country illegally. “Some of ’em are young, like fifteen, fourteen,” he told Woodruff. The clinic manager advised him to lie about the age of their sexual partners. “Just like and say oh, he’s fifteen, sixteen… we just kind of play it stupid.” She then gives them information on where girls age 14 and under can go to get an abortion. She mentions Metropolitan Medical Associates, an Englewood, NJ clinic that in 2009 paid a woman $1.9 million in an out-of court settlement for a botched abortion that left her comatose for a month.
The undercover prostitute then asks: “if it comes down that [the girls] do need an abortion, how long ’til they can be sexually active again?” “Minimum two weeks,” Woodruff replies. Concerned about losing money due to downtime following potential abortions, the prostitute asks if Woodruff has “any suggestions about what they could do” during those two weeks. “They still gotta make money, you know,” the pimp points out. Shockingly, Woodruff advises the underage sex slaves to work from the “waist up.”
Phyllis Kinsler, chief of Planned Parenthood of New Jersey, released a statement to the Washington Post saying “We were profoundly shocked when we viewed the videotape released this morning, which depicted an employee of one of our health centers behaving in a repugnant manner that is inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable. The employee in the video was immediately suspended from her duties this morning and was terminated this evening.”
Termination may not be sufficient punishment. Sex trafficking of minors is a federal crime, punishable by up to life imprisonment. Any person who aids, abets or counsels a federal crime may be punished as if they had committed the crime themselves.
Planned Parenthood says it notified law enforcement authorities immediately following the encounter with the fake pimp and prostitute. At least a dozen other Planned Parenthood clinics in six states received visits from “pimps” claiming to be involved in sex trafficking last month. In every case, Planned Parenthood notified federal and state authorities.
Live Action, the group that carried out the undercover video sting, admittedly has an ax to grind with Planned Parenthood. The anti-abortion activists have gone on record saying their goal is to “take down” Planned Parenthood, which advocates abortion rights for women and girls, within 10 years, by stirring up controversy. Live Action was started by a fifteen-year-old, Lila Rose, who is now a 22-year-old student and activist at UCLA. She has been on a personal crusade against Planned Parenthood for years. “This
proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Planned Parenthood intentionally breaks state and federal laws and covers up the abuse of the young girls it claims to serve,” Rose said.
Live Action and other abortion foes hope this shocking new video will aid them as they fight to end federal government funding of Planned Parenthood. The group receives tens of millions of government dollars each year to offer non-abortion family planning services to low-income people.
