Planned Parenthood lies about lying as BDSM saga continues

Although Planned Parenthood has years of experience dealing with the after-effects of Live Action exposes, they still haven’t quite figured out how to keep their story straight in the face of documented abuses. In what Live Action president Lila Rose calls Planned Parenthood’s “damage control handbook,” there are several monotonous steps that the organization always takes. First, they religiously carry out the “token firing” or suspension following  exposés of their outrageous behavior.

Since Live Action began undercover investigations of the organization, Planned Parenthood has followed up in the same predicable manner: fire the employee for damage control, then wait for the media storm to blow over. Planned Parenthood’s response never actually deals with their documented despicable actions. The tactic was no different after Live Action’s newest exposé, though this time they did get a little creative with their normal yawn-worthy response by lying about the token firing.

Lila points out that it’s unclear exactly for what the believed-to-be-fired employee was fired. Since Planned Parenthood hasn’t removed any other tax-payer funded BDSM promotion from their websites (for example, this creepy gem), what policy did she violate? Obviously Planned Parenthood doesn’t think promoting violent and bondage sex to kids is bad, so why fire a Planned Parenthood employee who is just doing what she’s told?

But in reality, she was not fired at all. When Live Action followed up with Planned Parenthood by calling to “schedule an appointment” with the Indiana counselor from this video by name, said caller was told that she had been fired. Then Planned Parenthood turned around and basically said, “just kidding” to USA Today, claiming that they did not fire the employee, but just wanted to throw Live Action off their scent:

Planned Parenthood staff went along with the caller’s request to meet with the specific counselor only because the agency would never tell a client about confidential personnel or employee issues, said spokeswoman Tammy Lieber. “We knew it was a fake,” she said.

So if you’re keeping score: Planned Parenthood lied to USA Today about lying to Live Action about not firing an employee that they said they fired [but actually didn’t]. Got it? Neither do we.
