    Re: Planned Parenthood: Right, Wrong or Indifferent?

    Presuming this "sting" was not deceptively edited, that manager crossed the line when she suggested lying, and ways to avoid PP's mandatory reporting policy for underage minors. However, she is correct that underage minors can receive examinations, pregnancy tests, STD tests and treatments, and, yes, abortions without parental consent. That's how it should be.

    However, this sting puts the clinic in a real quandary, choosing between reporting the young girls' sexual activity, which violates medical privacy laws and would potentially result in the girls not getting needed treatment, or treating the girls and violating PP policies. That's exactly the quandary these sting instigators wished to lay out on film... basically a lose-lose situation for PP.

    That said, this PP manager should be investigated. It's one thing to be in a quandary about opposing policies, and quite another to suggest lying and give the pimp "business" advice on further exploiting these girls.

    This type of video is basically the same sort of thing media matters does.

    I see someone laying out what has to happen if certain things are said, something that isnt unusual at all. Where it sounds un-professional is when red flags start popping up and she tries to avoid hearing things that would require her to report them. Avoiding paperwork when you are required to deal with the situation is not professional.

    The people never said anything about the girl being a "sex slave", just that she was under-age and they were both sex workers.

    I'll go out on a limb on this one and say that, taking each section at face value, not only should (and she was) she be fired, but she may have broken laws given the answers she provided. Just because of edits, I don't discount content. For example, if I saw 3 old lady's tortured and then shot in the head on an edited tape where we know that the 3 lady's were indeed tortured and shot dead, I would not excuse the video and hold my judgement and excuse the actions because the video tape was edited.

    You do what you feel is best for you - I just don't share your view in this case.

    If the video was edited to make her appear as though her responses did constitute something illegal, that's a problem.

    That's bull****, show me where Media Matters has EVER run a sting operation. They monitor media and provide video, audio and extensive transcripts when possible.

    I don't think facts are something they want in this thread.
