Surprise! That New Planned Parenthood 'Sting' Video Was Deceptively EditedErin Gloria Ryan6/01/12 6:10pmFiled to: Roe v worldLive ActionLila roseAbortionPlanned Parenthoodsex selectionSting operationshidden cameraAnti ChoiceAnti abortion rightsTexaspro choiceabortion rights27EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkMilitantly anti-abortion rights group Live Action sure acted like it had exposed some big-time fuckery in its latest Planned Parenthood hidden camera sting operation. From a casual observer's perspective, the sting captured what appears to be footage of a Planned Parenthood employee enthusiastically endorsing sex-selective abortion for a woman who claimed that she didn't want another baby girl. But this edition, like every other undercover sting video Live Action has ever produced, was edited heavily, omitting key moments in the interaction and artificially making Planned Parenthood look artificially bad. I'm shocked!Not that the original sting video Live Action released was that damning to begin with — a swift response statement from Planned Parenthood clarified that employees of the family planning organization are to follow a specific protocol in sensitive situations like the one presented by the Live Action actor, and that the employee featured in the video didn't follow protocol.
