Anti-Abortion Group Live Action Debuts More “Undercover” Videos

Today's Lady News photo
  • The anti-abortion group Live Action today debuted more videos filmed “undercover” at abortion clinics, including ones in Washington, D.C., and the Bronx, NY, claiming they perform “illegal and inhuman practices.” Live Action sent women to clinics where they secretly taped their conversations about a hypothetical, rare late-term abortion with various staff members; to hear Live Action tell it, these doctors are butchering live babies. Live Action videos are always heavily edited — much like reality TV — to make them appear say what Live Action wants them to convey. And what do they want to convey, really? Less than one percent of abortions are performed after 21 weeks. Plus, abortions are legal after 24 weeks in New York State only if a woman’s life is at risk. Not sure what kind of bombshell they were really trying to uncover with this one. [New York Times, Washington Post, Think ProgressMedia Matters]

Planned Parenthood Believes It’s The Target Of A Sting Operation By Anti-Choicers

Planned Parenthood Federation of America clinics in 11 states have reported a string of suspicious incidents where women come in asking questions about sex-selective abortions, leading the organization to believe it’s being targeted with a “hoax” by an anti-abortion sting operation.

Women claiming to be pregnant came into clinics over two dozen times, asking provocative questions about sex-selective abortion, the Huffington Post reports. (Patient confidentiality prevents PPFA from identifying the clinics.) The women asked questions like how soon they could find out the gender of their fetus and whether they could schedule an abortion if they were expecting a girl. Keep reading »

Meet Lila Rose, Anti-Abortion Crusader & Co-Opter Of Feminism

Lila Rose, a twentysomething anti-abortion activist who conducts “sting” operations on Planned Parenthood, penned a piece last week for the news site Politico about the voice she says has been absent from the debate over women’s health care: “that of the anti-abortion feminist.”

Now, it’s not a news that a feminist would also be opposed to abortion; there have always been feminists who have made the individual choice not to have an abortion when presented with an unwanted pregnancy. The problem is when women who call themselves feminists and are also anti-abortion try to climb into my bed, my OB/GYN office, my medical records, and tell me what to do — women like Lila Rose, who writes:

We are women who view the intentional killing of children not as a constitutional right, a matter of privacy or a necessary evil but, rather, as profoundly anti-woman and the antithesis of love. … We are women who believe that something precious is lost when fertility is intentionally excluded from marriage, a sacred bond and a total giving of each spouse to the other. We are women who believe that sex and pregnancy aren’t just health issues; they are also inextricably linked with family, morals, faith and values. And we are women who love everything about being a woman, including being mothers. Keep reading »

20-Year-Old Lila Rose Emerges As Anti-Abortion Crusader

After using clandestine tactics to investigate Planned Parenthood, Lila Rose, 20, has become known as an anti-abortion crusader. She staged her own sting at the clinics to prove her claim that the organization routinely covers up sexual abuse. She says Planned Parenthood counselors don’t report statutory rapes, as the law requires, and often encourage the girls to lie about their age or the identity of their partner. “Planned Parenthood is looking at these young girls as a plumbing problem: ‘We’ll get you that abortion and send you on your way,’” Rose told Reuters in an interview. “And that’s disrespecting two human lives. It’s destroying her pre-born child and sending her back to an abuser.” She has posted her secretly recorded videos on the website for her non-profit group, LiveAction.org, which she started at age 15.
