February 28, 2017 (NewsBusters) — Investigative videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s practices boast more than 33 million views on social media. But the three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC) still haven’t mentioned them once.

The videos are a part of pro-life group Live Action’s “Abortion Corporation” series, which launched Jan. 24. The series investigates how Planned Parenthood (PP) is “pushing profitable abortions, often at the expense of health care services for the women it claims to serve.”

Earlier this month, two new videos showed former Planned Parenthood employees discussing how women were “treated like cattle” and “herded” through clinics. In the videos from a couple weeks ago, a former manager admitted Planned Parenthood had “abortion quotas” that, if met, would result in pizza parties. Other videos have exposed Planned Parenthood’s claim of providing prenatal services and demonstrated that ultrasounds are used almost exclusively for abortion.

While the videos haven’t made the network news shows, they boast millions of views on Live Action’s Facebook page:

1/24: PP Pre-Natal Care Phone Calls video: 17.1 million views

1/26: PP “Marketing vs. Reality” video: 853 thousand views

1/31: PP Ultrasound Phone Calls video: 7.9 million views

2/3: “PP Workers Speak Out: Ultrasounds Only for Abortions” video: 2.4 million views

2/7: “PP Workers Speak Out: Abortion Quotas” video: 4 million views

2/14: “PP Workers Speak Out: Not Real Healthcare” video: 1.8 million views

TOTAL: 33+ million views

In releasing the videos, Live Action President Lila Rose stressed that Planned Parenthood’s priority is “not women’s health care, but abortion.”

“Planned Parenthood’s business model turns away women seeking options besides abortion and prioritizes the destruction of preborn lives for the sake of profit,” she said. “Not only have Live Action’s investigative videos proven it, but Planned Parenthood’s own former employees have said so.”

“It’s time to redirect Planned Parenthood’s taxpayer funding to more worthy local health clinics that aren’t in the abortion business but that instead provide holistic health care to women,” Rose added.
