Antiabortion Activist Takes On Planned Parenthood with Hidden Camera

This is an infuriating story by Public Record's, Jeff Norman. As infuriating as this is, we should be doing the same thing with groups such as the Mormon Church, Family Research Council, NRA and pretty much any Fox News-touted organization (teabaggers). We should be infiltrating RNC meetings and conservative conventions -- and if I remember correctly, Max Blumenthal already does something like this (but not under cover).

From Jeff Norman:

As someone who participated in one of the most audacious hidden camera pranks ever perpetrated, a recent Los Angeles Times article about pro-choice activist Lila Rose and her clandestine video recordings naturally caught my attention. For the past three years, Rose, accompanied by a colleague, has been visiting Planned Parenthood clinics around the country where she or her companion poses as an adolescent who claims to have been impregnated by an adult.

Each of the encounters has been surreptitiously videotaped and can be seen on YouTube as well as on the website of Rose’s nonprofit organization, Live Action. The idea is to expose what Rose contends is Planned Parenthood’s institutionalized failure to report child sexual abuse as required by law.

Last week I interviewed Rose, now a 20-year-old student at UCLA, about her 2008 visit to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Memphis where she had pretended to be a pregnant 14-year-old (two months shy of 15) who had conceived with her fictional 31-year-old boyfriend.
