Even Planned Parenthood’s NAME is ‘deceptive,’ its employees admit in new undercover video

January 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Planned Parenthood's own workers admit the organization has nothing to do with planning parenthood but everything to do with ending it.

In "The Prenatal Care Deception," part one of Live Action's new "Abortion Corporation" investigation into Planned Parenthood, 92 of out 97 Planned Parenthoods denied prenatal care to women seeking to keep their babies. 

This is because they "specialize in abortions," a Farmington, New Mexico Planned Parenthood worker told a Live Action investigator. 

"Planned Parenthood offers abortions, so they don't offer prenatal care," according to one of its centers in Tempe, Arizona. 

"I mean, it's called Planned Parenthood, I know it's kind of deceiving," a Merrillville, Indiana Planned Parenthood employee explained on the phone to Live Action. 

Planned Parenthood's Boise, Idaho location doesn't even have an OB-GYN on staff, but "if you were looking to termination options, we can do that as well."

One of its employees laughed to Live Action that Planned Parenthood is a "deceptive name, right?" 

Stanton Healthcare, also in Boise, is part of a network of pro-life, holistic, and comprehensive women's health centers that provide everything from free annual women’s exams, to maternity and baby clothes, to massage therapy and medical exams.

Planned Parenthood receives more than half a billion dollars in taxpayer money. Stanton receives none. 

Planned Parenthood was the American Birth Control League when Margaret Sanger founded it in 1921. It didn't become Planned Parenthood Federation of America until 1942. 

"Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits," its website boasts. "Planned Parenthood delivers vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to millions of women, men, and young people worldwide."

By vital reproductive health care, Planned Parenthood apparently means abortion. The only information Iowa and New Mexico Planned Parenthoods were able to give Live Action were recommendations to go to the local CareNet or "look around on the Internet."

"We tell you you're pregnant, and then we offer at Planned Parenthood to do the abortions," a Cornell, New York Planned Parenthood employee told Live Action.

Planned Parenthood can help those who unexpectedly became parents to "unplan" their pregnancies through abortion. But it seems that those who actually want to plan for parenthood need to go elsewhere.

Planned Parenthood employees admit their employer's name is "deceptive" and "deceiving" at 1:25 and 1:34 in the above video.
