Eric Holder: No Prosecutions For Planned Parenthood Employees
A series of sting videos which showed Planned Parenthood employees willingly going along with with plans to get abortions for underage prostitutes without reporting them to parents or authorities will result in no federal prosecutions according to Attorney General Eric Holder.
Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that the FBI has declined to prosecute in connection with a series of incidents where a man entered Planned Parenthood and claimed to be a pimp operating a sex trafficking ring. Those incidents were later revealed to be part of a video “sting” by the anti-abortion group LiveAction.
“It is my understanding that the FBI actually has looked at that matter” and “prosecution was declined in that matter,” Holder’s commented in a hearing of the House Appropriations subcommittee.
LiveAction, a group led by Lila Rose, sent actors into Planned Parenthood clinics across the country, who then referenced a sex trafficking ring while inquiring about getting abortions for underage sex workers. They secretly filmed their interactions with employees. Live Action accuses Planned Parenthood of repeatedly covering up sexual abuse — their idea, they say, was to get “proof”.
I’m not sure I necessarily disagree. I think Planned Parenthood is a ghoulish group which profits from murdering babies, and I think these undercover videos revealed a lot about the character of the organization, but at the end of the day they didn’t actually perform any abortions on underage prostitutes.Tags: Abortion, eric holder, planned parenthood
