Last year, Live Action Films students posed as racists to tape phone calls in which several Planned Parenthood chapters accept donations on condition that the money be used to abort blacks.

In one call, Autumn Kersey, vice president of marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho, is told that the caller has been hurt by affirmative action and “we just think, the less black kids out there the better.” Ms. Kersey nervously laughs and says “understandable.”

The Idaho chapter later called accepting the money “a serious mistake.”

Also in 2007, Miss Rose videotaped a Planned Parenthood staffer in California telling her, while posing as a 15-year-old pregnant by a 23-year-old boyfriend, to lie about her age so the staffer wouldn’t have to report anything under statutory rape laws.

“You could say 16,” the worker helpfully suggests. “Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don’t know anything.” Planned Parenthood responded by threatening a lawsuit over the surreptitious taping.
