Planned Parenthood sting round-up

Central Jersey Planned Parenthood has fired clinic manager Amy Woodruff after reviewing Live Action's tape. Yet instead of thanking Live Action for exposing one of their employees as someone willing to aid sex traffickers, they're condemning the videos because they were edited or because (according to VP Stuart Schear), "Falsely claiming sex trafficking to health professionals to advance a political agenda is an astoundingly cynical form of political activity."

The Washington Post has an article on video and the New York Times has a blurb. From the Post article,
Planned Parenthood Federation of America officials say that the heavily edited video does not tell the whole story and that Live Action has for years tried unsuccessfully to smear the abortion provider's reputation with its undercover operations.
Well, then what's the whole story?

Remember which clinic Woodruff is willing to refer the "pimp" and his girls to? Metropolitan Medical Associates. That's the same Metropolitan Medical Associates which was temporarily shut down by the state of New Jersey in 2007 for numerous violations including "forceps encrusted in brownish blood-like residues." They also paid out $1.9 million to a woman named Rasheedah Dinkins who was in a coma for a nearly month after they botched her abortion. MMA is no longer listed as a NAF clinic.

RH Reality Check's Amie Newman shows that there's no one more loyal than an abortion advocate by parroting the Media Matters line calling the video a "hoax." Amie includes a quote from Media Matters being skeptical about the video because it's edited. Uno problemo.....Live Action released the unedited video.
