A clinic manager at Planned Parenthood, America’s leading abortion provider, was fired on Tuesday after a shocking undercover video recorded by Live Action was released. The video depicted the clinic manager coaching a man and woman posing as sex traffickers on how to acquire abortions and STD testing for under-aged girls. The man and woman openly stated involvement in “sex work” that employed young, undocumented immigrant girls.
The clinic manager tried to help them get around reporting laws. “The only thing that you do have to be careful is, if they are a minor, we are obligated if we hear any certain information to kind of report,” the manager said in the video. “So as long as they just lie and say, ‘Oh he’s 15, 16.’ You know, as long as they don’t say ’14’ and as long as it’s not too much of an age gap then we just kind of like play it stupid…”
At one point, the clinic manager even coached them on how to keep their girls working immediately following their abortions but keeping it “waist up”.
It is horrifying to think that people are willing to turn a blind eye to the exploitation and abuse of children. I can only hope that as you and I continue in our efforts to advocate for victims of trafficking and raise awareness about issues of commercial sexual exploitation, this kind of atrocity can be ended.
I am including the link to the video below, but be warned, what you will see is very disturbing. It literally had me shaking and nauseas.
