In a new campaign aimed at encouraging legislators to end all taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, Live Action has just released a “damning investigative report” on the abortion giant that details shocking activity within the organization’s walls, including the sexual abuse of children, facilitating taxpayer-funded sex-selective abortion against girls in the womb, and manipulative counseling tailored to convince women to abort their children.
Six years of undercover investigations and reporting by Live Action show that Planned Parenthood facilities consistently engage in the following:
Covering up statutory rape
Accepting donations for explicitly racist purposes
Misleading and lying to women regarding the development of the pre-born child, the physical and psychological risks
of abortion, and the processes behind adoption and parenting
Aiding and abetting commercial sexual exploitation of women and girls
Procuring taxpayer money by lying to media, patients, and taxpayers regarding the scope and emphasis of activities
Facilitating abortions based solely on the sex of the child
Lobbying for infanticide
Released May 28, the 60-page report shows “an institutionalized pattern of dangerous and illegal behavior,” said Lila Rose. “Abortion is a sickening human rights abuse against both women and children.”
Rose said that when she first began to go undercover in these facilities in 2007,
“I thought I would find illegal and harmful activity. But even I had no idea of the huge, company-wide commitment to abortion at any cost – the fraud, the lies, the cover-ups.”
According to the Live Action website,
Rose is calling for the immediate and complete revocation of all taxpayer funds to Planned Parenthood. “An organization that lies to women and kills three thousand children every day for profit can have no valid claim on a single American’s paycheck,” she said. “It’s a grave injustice that our government and our president actively promote this extreme form of violence. It’s a disgrace that we are all forced to fund it.”
Per its latest annual report, Planned Parenthood received $540.7 million in government (i.e., taxpayer) funds in 2011-2012. The corporation performed 327,166 abortions during that time.
“Planned Parenthood is an abortion corporation,” Rose said, “no matter what its gold-plated marketing department tells you. These facilities need to be investigated, inspected, and shut down. Most if not all of these abortionists should be prosecuted – along with destroying thousands of lives, they regularly skirt or outright violate state statutes. Our report shows where the true ‘war on women’ is – it’s front and center in America’s abortion facilities. And it will never end until their doors are shut forever.”
