    A clinic manager in New York was fired for following PP policy? Sucks to be this manager.

    Planned Parenthood fires employee in controversial video - Yahoo! News

    Is that last part of the quote correct? What exactly was egregious and repugnant? The behavior or the fact that an anti-abortion group had the audacity to film the behavior?

    Seems to me like what is important to PP is the "coordinated national effort" against PP rather than the evidence shown on the tapes.

    Planned parenthood has been an ill conceived organization from the beginning. Why don't they just change the name to show what they really are, a pro-abortion clinic and this is not the first time this kind of thing has been reported.

    Not according to what I have read. They are saying the employee did something that was "egregious and repugnant" yet they attack those who brought it to light... go figure!

    From your article...


    "Planned Parenthood said it notified authorities in New Jersey after the January 13 visit and contacted national authorities after similar unusual visits occurred in at least 12 centers in six states within one week.

    Schear said the secret tapings were part of a large, coordinated national effort to take funding away from Planned Parenthood by creating controversy in the organization.

    Earlier in January, Planned Parenthood said it alerted U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to the string of health-center visitors in a number of states that indicated involvement in sex trafficking of minors.

    Planned Parenthood said the FBI is reviewing evidence and photos.

    Yes?

    Isn't that what I said? They are blaming the messenger not the manager.

    Of course there is! It comes from the media doesn't it? I don't care which direction the slant ;) is there is definitely a slant.

    For me? I don't think Stuart Schear is being honest. I believe they fired the manager because he/she got caught not because of what the manager said or did. He actually has the audacity to blame Live Action for what his own management did? Takes gonads to do that if you ask me.

    Pro abortion is a term coined by anti-abortionists to make out that those who support choice are proactive and 'like' the idea. I have yet to meet a pro-abortionist - including the three women I know of who have had one....

    You are absolutely correct, but let's be honest here, Pro-choice people do the same thing when they call people who are pro-life, anti-choice. It goes both ways.

    I have never met anyone that is "pro-abortion" although I suspect that people like Patricia Ireland of NOW and the lady that used to run NARAL, don't remember her name, as well as the lady that runs or used to run Emily's List are "pro-abortion". Then there is Margaret Sanger who founded PP. But, the vast majority of Pro-choice people are not all that different than Pro-life people. I really believe that most of us would prefer not to kill the unborn, but those who support "choice", as defined by this issue, believe that the government has no place in this discussion. In some respects, I understand that agrument. On the other hand, I happen to believe that one of the most important functions of the government is to protect and defend life.
