Officials of Planned Parenthood complained bitterly about the use of what they called “deceptive” undercover tactics when a sting operation revealed last year that they were involved in the sale of body parts of aborted babies. The undercover videos showed senior Planned Parenthood staff members haggling over the prices they would accept in exchange for aborted baby body parts. In one video, one Planned Parenthood executive said she needed a good price for baby body parts because she wanted to buy a very expensive luxury car!
Last January Planned Parenthood countered by filing a civil lawsuit against the Center for Medical Progress, the organization that produced and released the series of undercover videos last summer which showed Planned Parenthood officials discussing the availability of aborted baby body parts. The lawsuit complains that the undercover operation involved “fake companies” and “fake identifications.” In response, the Center for Medical Progress issued a statement saying it “uses the same undercover techniques that investigative journalists have used for decades in exercising our First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and of the press, and follows all applicable laws.”
Planned Parenthood does not like to be fooled, but they apparently have no qualms about acting deceptively themselves…
