Is Another Live Action Expose of Planned Parenthood by Live Action In the Works?

It looks like it may be.
At least that is what Planned Parenthood is claiming. PP told the Huffington Post on Monday that a "string of suspicious incidents at Planned Parenthood clinics across the country has given the organization reason to believe that anti-abortion activists are targeting it in a new organized sting operation."
HufPo's Laura Bassett said that "According to Planned Parenthood spokesperson Chloe Cooney, clinics in at least 11 states have reported two dozen or more "hoax visits" over the past several weeks, in which a woman walks into a clinic, claims to be pregnant and asks a particular pattern of provocative questions about sex-selective abortions, such as how soon she can find out the gender of the fetus, by what means and whether she can schedule an abortion if she's having a girl." Cooney said Planned Parenthood suspects that the most likely group behind the campaign is anti-abortion activist group Live Action.
Naturally the article is filled with half truths & lies, like claiming that Live Action has only released "heavily edited the videos they gathered" & ignoring the fact that Live Action has released the unedited videos to back up their claims.
When asked, Kate Bryan, a spokesperson for Live Action, told Bassett she would not confirm whether the group was behind the newest Planned Parenthood sting. "As you can understand, Live Action does not comment on any investigations until after public release."
While Live Action doesn't comment on an ongoing investingation, which Bryan's comment would seem to imply, others who are familiar with Planned Parenthood & how it operates have. One of those is Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee. She told that concern over sex-selective abortion would be justified. “When sex selection abortions occur, we see more female babies aborted than males. This fact is ironic considering that Planned Parenthood claims to be ‘pro-woman,’. Even though some abortion advocates might be against this type of abortion, they will never go against the Planned Parenthood abortion machine and speak out.”
IMHO, the HufPo piece is a part of a preemptive strike to start the PR spin before the ugky truth gets out.
& they are using their usual tactics of claiming that what really happenned is totally different than what the tapes will show. The problem with that is, it has been proven time after time that PP has lied, not Live Action. Planned Parenthood has been caught lying about providing mammograms. Another investigation resulted in Planned Parenthood firing several employees despite earlier claims the videos were not accurate.
Then of course they are bringing out the "this is an attack on women's health" cannard as well.
In a column that appeared  on RH Reality Check as well as Planned Parenthood’s website Monday, two leaders, Leslie KantorMPH, vice president of education for Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) & Dr. Carolyn Westhoff, senior medical advisor for PPFA  complained that the “secret, nationwide hoax campaign” was simply an attempt to “undermine women’s access to services.”
They went on to make another claim that has been disproved time & time again. "Without Planned Parenthood, many women would have nowhere else to turn for breast and cervical cancer screening, well woman exams, birth control, STD testing and treatment, sex education, and pregnancy options."
They also claimed that PP “finds the concept of sex selection [abortions] deeply unsettling,” and added that the group does not offer sex determination services on unborn children. “Planned Parenthood condemns sex selection motivated by gender bias, and urges leaders to challenge the underlying conditions that lead to these beliefs and practices.” While claiming that PP does not provide sex determination services Kantor & Westhoff did not say that the group refused to perform such procedures. In fact PP is on the record  as strongly opposed legislation to ban abortions based on sex selection. So, their protesting suggests this is simply more PR spin.
Should Live Action (or some other group) have  just such an investigation in the works, it is clear that what will come out will not look good for Planned Parenthood. & that it will prove the very things they are trying to deny. This will make it even harder for Planned Parenthood to keep up their façade, despite having the Obama Administration at their beck & call.
The light of truth is being shone on Planned Parenthood. & like cockroaches, they are trying to scurry back into the dark. But it just isn't working any more, especially with the new media that can get the truth out.
