Planned Parenthood: Employees Will be Retrained

Ad Feedback

Planned Parenthood says it will retrain employees who have direct contact with patients.

The abortion provider made the announcement after the pro-life group, Live Action, exposed their employees advising men how to get abortions for underage girls.

Members of the San Jose, Calif.-based group posed as pimps for underage girls. And they secretly videotaped the counseling sessions at Planned Parenthood clinics located in New Jersey and Virginia.

"This footage shows that underage girls and young women are at potentially grave risk when they walk into Planned Parenthood clinics," Lila Rose, president of Live Action, said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood disputes the claim.

"Had the teens in question come into our center, they would have met with a licensed social worker," the New York affiliate said in a statement. "All teens coming into Planned Parenthood of New York City are screened for child abuse and neglect."

A Planned Parenthood spokesman said it has "a firm commitment to reporting any potential harm to a minor."

The New Jersey attorney general's office said it was looking into the claims. Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli said he found a clip from a video of a Richmond clinic to be "very disturbing."
