Planned Parenthood: Our Name Is ‘Deceptive,’ We Don’t Help Pregnant Women

Pro-life organization Live Action released an investigative video on Tuesday exposing Planned Parenthood's misleading claim that it provides healthcare services to pregnant women

When a Live Action investigator went to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Boise, Idaho, seeking prenatal care, a clinic worker admitted that the business’ name is “deceptive,” adding “if you are looking to terminate [your baby] we can do that.”

 

Pro-life organization Live Action released an investigative video on Tuesday exposing Planned Parenthood’s misleading claim that it provides healthcare services to pregnant women.

In its latest undercover video, Live Action called and went into 97 Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide to ask if they provide prenatal services to women who want to carry their unborn baby to term.

Ninety-two clinics responded by saying that Planned Parenthood doesn’t have an OB/GYN on staff and only use their ultrasound equipment on women seeking an abortion to find out if the abortionist will need to perform a first, second or third trimester abortion.

When a Live Action investigator went to a Planned Parenthood clinic in Boise, Idaho, seeking prenatal care, a clinic worker admitted that the business’ name is “deceptive,” adding “if you are looking to terminate [your baby] we can do that.”

Other Live Action investigators were told: “Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don’t offer prenatal care.” And, “No, see, we don’t see pregnant women as a way of giving prenatal care, we see pregnant women, um, you know, if they are considering other options.”

Another Planned Parenthood employee seen in the video even recommends that the investigator go to CareNet, a pro-life center down the street, for prenatal services.

In their investigation, Live Action reports that there were five clinics in the U.S. that said they provide prenatal services to pregnant women.

Lila Rose, president of Live Action, told The Christian Post that they were giving those five clinics the benefit of the doubt, but they know the services those clinics provide are minimal.

“We know from past experience that Planned Parenthood is untrustworthy and lies repeatedly to the public,” Rose said about the business’ repeated claim that it provides prenatal care to underserved women.
