Sorry, pro-lifers have mastered undercover videos

pregnancy center (screen grab)A former Planned Parenthood official is attempting to entrap pro-life pregnancy centers but keeps walking away empty-handed, says a pro-life activist.

A former Planned Parenthood executive, Mary Alice Carter, has announced an undercover effort to catch pro-lifers making statements that are fraudulent or suggest unethical practices in the pro-life effort to convince women to follow through with their pregnancies.

Carter and her "Equity Forward" organization launched in January with the stated goal of exposing "malfeasance, fraud, unethical practices, and false information to hold them accountable," LifeSiteNews, citing the group's website, reported at the time.

Jay Hobbs of Heartbeat International says it's a desperation move by Planned Parenthood, which has an annual budget of over a billion dollars, including more than a half-billion in taxpayers' dollars.

Despite the resources at their fingertips, he says, the investigations have yet to turn up any wrongdoing.

Although the group's efforts could eventually turn up wrongdoing at one of the 2,000-plus pregnancy centers, in two months' time Equity Forward's press releases to date are only complaining about the federal Health and Human Services and its pro-life direction under the Trump administration.

Live Action famously recorded a New Jersey clinic manager in 2011 advising a sex-trafficking "pimp" to hide the age of an illegal immigrant teenager.

Planned Parenthood said the employee's advice violated its "core values."

More recently, Planned Parenthood was reeling from a series of undercover videos by activist David Daleiden, who was documenting the abortion giant profiting from fetal tissues and organs, a felony. The videos also revealed the callous, flippant attitude of abortion-supporting executives. 

Hobbs says the threat of an undercover investigation suggests that the abortion organization considers the pregnancy centers a threat, which he says they certainly are because abortion supporters are stuck in the past.

"And their time is going out," he predicts. "And they realize it and what they are doing is fighting and clawing all the way on down."
