The Truth Will Set You Up: Missouri Suing Planned Parenthood Over Latest Project Veritas Sting Video


You might have flashbacks to 2008 if I said that Project Veritas just released a video exposing Planned Parenthood for major malfeasance involving minors and abortion.  

But Alicia Keys’ isn’t on the top of the music charts, George Bush isn’t president, and The Dark Knight isn’t releasing in theaters this summer. Sixteen years later, Planned Parenthood is still getting caught doing things they shouldn’t. And thankfully, there’s a reckoning coming from the Missouri State Attorney General. 

From reporting by the Associated Press: “Missouri’s attorney general filed a lawsuit Thursday accusing Planned Parenthood of illegally taking minors into Kansas to obtain abortions without parental consent, basing the allegation on a video from a conservative group…  

Republican Attorney General Andrew Bailey’s lawsuit accuses Kansas City, Missouri-based Planned Parenthood Great Plains of violating Missouri law, which makes it illegal to “intentionally cause, aid, or assist a minor to obtain an abortion” without consent from a parent or guardian. The lawsuit filed in state district court in Columbia, Missouri, asks the court to stop Planned Parenthood from engaging in the conduct it alleges.” 

Naturally, Planned Parenthood has denied this, saying that they follow state laws regarding minors. Evidently, they don’t think that video of their staff actually saying the things they’re accused of is evidence enough. “We never tell the parents anything” is what the Managing Director of the Kansas City office says in the video.  

This is why Students for Life Action (SLFAction) proudly supports the introduction of anti-trafficking legislation elsewhere in the country, most recently with House Bill 713in Mississippi, and S.959, Stopping Traffickers and Their Accomplices Act of 2023 at the Federal level. Children should not be trafficked across state lines for abortions, nor should the crimes of abuse be covered up by abortions, which sadly happens far too often.

Sadly, it’s not the first time Planned Parenthood has targeted children. In June 2023, Students for Life of America (SFLA) covered in a blog how the pro-abortion organization was kicked out of a school district in Canada for promoting disturbing and extremely sexual content.

Planned Parenthood also recently made headlines for a grotesque and highly inappropriate sex-ed video aimed at young kids.

Thankfully, more and more people are recognizing this degeneracy for what it is. They’re fighting back against sick organizations like Planned Parenthood who are all too happy to sexualize kids and benefit from the profits when those kids get an abortion – but not before they try to cover it up as well.
