Live Action has released a second video exposing a Planned Parenthood worker telling a pimp and his prostitute companion how to look after under-age girls in his prostitution ring, how to get abortions past the limit in Virginia, how to treat young prostitutes who have STDs.
Tonight there is a webcast on this breaking news; Lila Rose will be joined by pro-life leaders such as Abby Johnson, David Bereit, Alveda King amongst others. The videos have been forwarded to the attorney generals of the states involved and today, Lila is appearing on CNN - which means this has made the "big" news.
Planned Parenthood is being shown for what it does, which is to promote sexual activity regardless of age, situation, whether it is consensual or even qualifies as rape (given the age of the girl and the age of her partner).
The question has been raised "is it right for Christians to lie in order to get information such as this?" The old question of whether the means justifies the end.
The Catholic catechism has been quoted, stating that lying is intrinsically wrong.
However the definition of lie in the Catholic catechism is as follows:
#2483 "Lying is the most direct offense against the truth. To lie is to speak or act against the truth in order to lead into error someone who has the right to know the truth. By injuring man's relation to truth and to his neighbour, a lie offends against the fundamental relation of man and of his word to the Lord."
I must confess that I had some difficulty with this whole issue of whether Live Action was correct in lying to Planned Parenthood employees in order to gain information. It still leaves me puzzled as to the correct judgment on that action. However, in this case, the lies of Live Action are used to actually gain access to the truth, something that Planned Parenthood has been keeping from the public.
Since the law enforcement agencies will not do this work themselves, Live Action feels obligated to do it in their place. Now, if the police were conducting these stings, wouldn`t that be great!
But they aren`t and they won`t unless they are pressured into it. Perhaps this exposure by Live Action will compell them to investigate the actual workings of Planned Parenthood.
