AULA AND LEADING PRO-LIFE ORGANIZATIONS UNITE TO
STRIP PLANNED PARENTHOOD OF FUNDING
FOLLOWING SEX TRAFFICKING SCANDAL
WASHINGTON, D.C. (02-03-11) – Americans United for Life Action will join tonight with leading pro-life organizations for an unprecedented video presentation and call to action. An undercover sting operation under the direction of Live Action shows Planned Parenthood engaged in discussions of how to exploit innocent young victims of sex trafficking and how to cover up possible crimes.
Lila Rose, president of Live Action, will be on the webcast to show the video footage, explain the specifics of the sting operation, and detail Planned Parenthood's inexcusable actions. The Live Action video shows a woman alleged to be the clinic manager at the Perth Amboy Planned Parenthood Clinic in New Jersey talking with a man and woman posing as a pimp and prostitute about how to avoid legal troubles when bringing to the clinic underage girls and illegal aliens engaged in sex trafficking.
Dr. Charmaine Yoest, president and CEO of AULA, called on Congress to immediately freeze the millions in taxpayer dollars going to Planned Parenthood and for investigations into possible criminal misconduct by the nation’s largest abortion provider.
The pro-life groups participating in the special webcast also will stand united during the webcast to De-Fund Planned Parenthood, and strip the abortion industry of the $350 million-plus it receives from the nation’s taxpayers.
“This video will help Americans see the appalling truth behind Planned Parenthood’s glossy public relations machine,” said Yoest. “The world’s largest abortion provider poses as the defender of women’s health in the glare of the spotlight. But when real women enter their doors, only money matters.”

AUL Action is the legislative action arm of Americans United for Life, a nonprofit, public-interest law and policy organization whose vision since 1971 is a nation in which everyone is welcomed in life and protected in law. AULA played an important role during the Health Care Reform debates because of its opposition to taxpayer funded abortion, which included pivotal advertising campaigns in 14 congressional districts and extensive work on Capitol Hill. AULA's efforts during the last two Supreme Court confirmation events led to Dr. Yoest being asked to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee twice. AUL's legal team has been involved in every abortion-related case before the U.S. Supreme Court, including the successful defense of the Hyde Amendment. AUL also publishes Defending Life, the most comprehensive state-by-state legal guide of its kind, which is distributed annually to legislators across the nation.
