No, Planned Parenthood does not show women how to cover up domestic abuse. But….

A video making the rounds in pro-life circles claims that Planned Parenthood shows women how to cover up signs of domestic abuse. A video posted on the group’s Info for Teens Facebook page shows a woman giving make-up tips to cover up bruises, abrasions, and signs of strangulation.

At first it might seem that this proves that Planned Parenthood does not just perform 330,000 abortions a year; it is now providing beauty tips to battered women. However, the video is actually a clever, if chilling, parody opposed to covering up domestic abuse.

Planned Parenthood, which is nothing if not obsessive about its public image, posted this video to present itself as a courageous opponent of abuse.

That ought to spark indignation and outrage. In reality, Planned Parenthood has done more to cover up the abuse of women and young people than any organization outside NAMBLA.

Abortion is an invaluable tool to enable abusers, and their families, to dispose of the evidence of statutory rape or incest. In 2004, an Ohio Planned Parenthood performed an abortion on a 14-year-old after her 21-year-old soccer coach posed as her father, a scandal that resulted in a lawsuit. 

Planned Parenthood has all too often been willing to turn a blind eye, refusing to report statutory rape to the authorities as required by law and sometimes advising the victim on how to hide the abuse

The abortion industry benefits from the suffering, fear, and deception of the sexual abusers it empowers, overtly or covertly. Posting this video is its own form of make-up, covering up its ugly past, present and, if authorities fail to remain vigilant, future.

If the pro-life movement responds to this video, it should be with a clear-minded and sober response that highlights an inconvenient and irrefutable fact: The organization now posing as a champion of women depends upon their exploitation and abuse to pad its bottom line.
