Planned Parenthood Reacts

Last week, Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards reportedly sent Attorney General Eric Holder a letter to complain about Live Action investigating them for sex-trafficking, calling their undercover investigative work a “hoax.” But in the wake of footage released this morning of a New Jersey Planned Parenthood clinic employee’s willingness to aid a sex trafficker as he looked to streamline abortion, testing, and birth-control services for underage girls illegally in the country in a chillingly routine way, a Planned Parenthood official in New Jersey admits the obvious: Planned Parenthood did something criminally wrong:

 Phyllis Kinsler, chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey, added that the clinic employee’s behavior, as portrayed on the video, “violates PPCNJ policies, as well as our core values of protecting the welfare of minors and complying with the law, and appropriate action is being taken.”

Others complain — and worry — that the full video of the LiveAction clinic visit is not being released. But it’s on Live Action’s website. And YouTube, in two parts here and here.

Set NASA Free

The Trump administration has proposed shifting the International Space Station from a NASA-exclusive research facility to a semi-public, semi-private one. Its plan would nix all government funding for the ISS by 2025 and award at least $150 million per year to NASA to help with the transition. This would be a ... Read More
