Planned Parenthood clinics in at least 11 states have noted suspiciously similar walk-ins in recent weeks by young women suggesting they want an abortion only if they are pregnant with a girl.
The apparently coordinated series of “hoax visits” has Planned Parenthood bracing for another “propaganda campaign” by anti-abortion activists who selectively edit secretly videotaped visits to “promote misinformation about Planned Parenthood and our services,” spokeswoman Chloe Cooney tells The Huffington Post.
Hoax visits or not….if Planned Parenthood is really doing things as they should- they have nothing to worry about… Shouldn’t have any reason to prepare, or brace themselves.
Similarly to when secret shoppers or health inspectors visit businesses….. If everythings legitimate, then there isn’t anything to stress about, no matter how many videos are taken.
Just my 2 cents.
I’m sorry, but that;
1) Seems incredibly naive, and
2) Assumes a sense of fairplay on behalf of the people doing the hoaxing.
For some, a camera is a tool of journalism. For others, it is a weapon of distortion, where the hoaxer, in this case, has ALL the tools, all the film, all the editing capabilities, and 100% of the agency with which the material is presented. A committed film crew can make a saint look like the devil without much effort. What do you think the possibility of distortion and unfavorable editing would be in this situation?
Because I would propose that that likelihood is darn near absolute.
