Talking Points Memo reports that the FBI is investigating a series of incidents at Planned Parenthood offices around the county where a man claimed to be running a sex-trafficking ring involving minors which Planned Parenthood believes was part of a hoax carried out by guerilla anti-choice activist Lila Rose:
The FBI has begun investigating a series of incidents in which a man told Planned Parenthood clinics around the country that he was running an underage sex trafficking ring, according to a spokeswoman for Planned Parenthood.
Planned Parenthood requested an investigation earlier this month after the clinics reported getting nearly the same visit: A young man would come in, claim he needed treatment for a sexually transmitted disease, and then reveal to a staff member that he was operating an interstate sex trafficking ring that exploits minors and illegal immigrants.
The visits all happened within a span of five days. Planned Parenthood, which is a frequent target of anti-abortion groups, wrote a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking him to investigate the potential sex trafficking operation, but acknowledged that it might be a “hoax.”
The organization says they believe they’ve identified the man who made the visits and, they say, believe he’s connected to Live Action — a group that uses James O’Keefe-esque hidden camera “stings” in an attempt to dismantle Planned Parenthood.
The group is led by Lila Rose, an associate of O’Keefe’s, and has been targeting Planned Parenthood with hidden camera operations since 2006.
So this seems like a good time to repost this video of Rose speaking at the 2009 Values Voter Summit and declaring that as long as abortion remains legal in this country, women should be forced to have their abortions carried out in the public square:
