Earlier today, the Planned Parenthood blog Reproductive Health Reality Check posted an editorial stating that the organization has been subject to several suspicious visits at clinics across the country.
In recent weeks people who oppose Planned Parenthood, and our mission to provide high-quality reproductive health care, have been conducting a secret, nationwide hoax campaign in an attempt to undermine womens access to services, wrote Leslie Kantor and Dr. Carolyn Westhoff.
Planned Parenthood spokesperson Chloe Cooney told Raw Story, We dont know how many groups are involved in this propaganda campaign, but we know from experience that their ultimate goal is to undermine womens access to reproductive health care services. We expect that this campaign will only further escalate the political battles over access to health care, rather than focus on helping women and their families get the care they need.
In the past, anti-abortion activist Lila Rose has filmed undercover operations at Planned Parenthood clinics, posing variously as a 15-year-old and a 13-year-old purportedly impregnated by much older men. Her organization, Live Action, has also released video of individuals posing as pimps and underage prostitutes soliciting abortion services. Given the organizations past activities targeting Planned Parenthood, Raw Story reached out to Live Action for a statement.

Yikes. That's certainly a creative way to try to shut them down anyway

Vegans are basically saying, "Hey, animals shouldn't be needlessly harmed." It's amazing how many people that sentiment freaks out. - Vegan.com

Well, they've managed to all but lock the doors on the one and only abortion services clinic left in MS and define life in AZ as beginning before conception. Pretty constructive.
