More lies in abortion "counseling" exposed

Live Action has just released another video showing a Planned Parenthood abortion counselor giving false information about the development of the unborn child. You may remember earlier investigations in Appleton, WI and Milwaukee, WI. Now they show the same thing happening in Indianapolis. fully supports Live Action in their fight to expose medical misinformation. There's a reason why these "counselors" are afraid of the scientific facts.

For those of you who can't watch the video, here are the highlights.
Undercover client: When does the heart start to beat?
Planned Parenthood: "It's around I think the 8th or 9th week that you can hear the heartbeat."

Notice the tricks they play with language. She wasn't asked when you can hear the heartbeat, but about when the heartbeat begins. By answering a different question, she was able to make the 10-week-old sound less developed-- as if he or she had only had a heartbeat for a week or two.

And the abortion pictures held by sidewalk protestors? "They're fake. There's no way they could have obtained those pictures."
When they're in a tight spot, their favorite strategy is deny, deny, deny. It's too bad we don't know what signs were outside. If they happened to come from the Center for Bio-ethical Reform, Planned Parenthood could have a libel lawsuit on its hands.

Finally, the abortion counselor claims that an abortion won't impact any future pregnancies. Live Action pulls out a host of studies in respected peer-reviewed articles which show increased risks of ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, and premature birth.

According to Live Action's press release, Indiana has an informed consent law. This video could prompt a state investigation. It may also give pro-life advocates a boost in their effort to defund Planned Parenthood in Indiana. Stay tuned.
