Revisiting the Supposedly Deceptive CPC Story

An Indiana television station did a piece on the alleged incident where a girl was supposedly misled by a pregnancy center posing as an abortion clinic. They also have a video of it (which wouldn't work with my media player).

It seems the 17-year-old girl's story has changed or Planned Parenthood was lying in their original e-mail. The article says,
I could die, I was going to ruin my life, " the 17-year-old said the center told her after she had already made the decision to get an abortion.

Telling a girl she could die and that abortion could ruin her life doesn't seem to be the kind of thing that a pregnancy center trying to pass itself off as an abortion clinic would say, now does it? According to the original Planned Parenthood e-mail:
"The group took down the girl's confidential personal information and told her to come back for her appointment, which they said would be in their "other office" (the real Planned Parenthood office nearby). When she arrived for her appointment, not only did the Planned Parenthood staff have no record of her, but the police were there — the "crisis pregnancy center" had called them, claiming that a minor was being forced to have an abortion against her will."
Now the girl is telling us the pregnancy center told her that she could possibly die and her life would be ruined? If I was trying to pass myself off as an abortion clinic, the last thing I would say is "abortion could kill you." Does anyone else see the inconsistency in these stories?
