  •  They are upfront about motives (5+ / 0-)

    Last night Lila Rose, who was part of this operation, was on The O'Reilly Factor.  Laura (Ingraham?) was the host for the night and asked Ms. Rose if her goal was to end abortion in the United States.  She gave a clear answer:  "Yes."  I don't think it's fair to say their hiding their true motives when a spokesperson says on the most-watched news channel that she wants to end legal abortion in the United States.

    After the bizarre tactics of James O'Keefe, I don't really trust the accuracy of these videos.  I only saw one small clip and didn't hear any audio (they posted a transcript on the screen).  Whether the videos are heavily edited and misleading or 100% accurate, the group is NOT hiding its motives.

    •  The goal? "...help them feel that fear." (3+ / 0-)

      Planned Parenthood May Have Busted Conservative Sting Attempt Reminiscent of ACORN Smear Campaign

      Excerpt

      The goal, according to Rose, is to "unnerve Planned Parenthood employees and eventually put them out of business."

      "We will work to de-fund them in every state wherever it is possible, to de-license them and to expose them," she told the conservative Value Voters Summit in October.

      "The other part of it, too, is to create controversy within the organization, keep them on their toes," she said. "We need to help them feel that fear."

      Really?  This is a goal?  Of a featured leader of a movement that claims moral authority over women and their health?

      These people are nothing but self-serving, attention-seeking RW useful idiots.

    •  if you accept that ending abortion (7+ / 0-)

      is their only goal, then yes, they are upfront about it. As Jed mentioned though, abortion is only one service that PP offers and a rather small one at that.  Their ultimate goal is an end to contraception too. They aren't talking about that part of the equation, only an end to abortion.  That's the hidden agenda.
