Allison Mack of the TV series “Smallville,” and former Middletown Police Officer James Keenan are facing justice for their alleged human trafficking crimes thanks to a law conceived, championed and passed into law through the leadership and tenacity of Congressman Chris Smith.
Smith’s landmark Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (PL 106-386) is the law being enforced in the recent high-profile indictment of a trafficking ring in New York that involved Mack and the indictment of Keenan on child sex trafficking charges.
“This law, the TVPA, sends a message to traffickers of the gravity of their offense,” Rep. Smith, co-chair of the Congressional Human Trafficking Caucus, stated.
NEW JERSEY – February 1, 2011– A Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey coaches a man and a woman posing as sex traffickers how to secure secret abortions, STD testing, and contraception for their female underage sex slaves, and make their whole operation “look as legit as possible” in an undercover video released this morning.
Clinic manager Amy Woodruff, LPN, of Planned Parenthood Central New Jersey’s Perth Amboy center, warns the pimp and his prostitute to have their trafficked underage girls lie about their age to avoid mandatory reporting laws, promising, “even if they lie, just say, ‘Oh he’s the same age as me, 15,’…it’s just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesn’t matter if their partner’s the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report.” She says, “For the most part, we want as little information as possible.”
Woodruff also recommends how the pimp can get his prostitutes cheaper contraception by claiming they are “students”: “If they’re minors, put down that they’re studentsMemphis. Yeah, just kind of play along that they’re students–we want to make it look as legit as possible.”
If one of the young trafficked girls needs an abortion, Woodruff refers the pimp and prostitute to the Metropolitan Medical Association, where “their protocols aren’t as strict as ours and they don’t get audited the same way that we do.” The prostitute in the video asks how long after the abortion until the girls can have sex again, and when Woodruff says “minimum of 2 weeks,” she asks what sex acts the girls could still do to make money. Woodruff advises, “Waist up, or just be that extra action walking by” to advertise sex to potential clients.
Sex trafficking is punishable under federal law and carries a potential life sentence. The new video is released by Live Action, a pro-life new media organization led by 22-year-old Lila Rose. The video airs just days after Planned Parenthood’s leadership suspected the sting operation and sought an FBI probe of Live Action in order to deter the release of the exposé. Live Action is sending full footage to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, NJ Attorney General Paula Dow, officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigations, and other law enforcement officials, requesting federal and state investigations into Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse and sex trafficking cover up.Memphis
“This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Planned Parenthood intentionally breaks state and federal laws and covers up the abuse of the young girls it claims to serve,” said Lila Rose, President of Live Action. “Time and time again, Planned Parenthood has sent young girls back into the arms of their abusers. They don’t deserve a dime of the hundreds of millions they receive in federal funding from taxpayers. Congress must cease funding and the Department of Justice should investigate this corrupt organization immediately.”
Marie Tasy, Executive Director of New Jersey Right to Life, issue the following statement in response to the video:
“Over the last year, several NJ lawmakers endorsed by Planned Parenthood have continued to defy the Governor and push legislation to use taxpayer money to fund these clinics, “ said Marie Tasy, Executive Director for New Jersey Right to Life.“ Using buzz words and phrases like ‘gender equity’ and‘poor women’s access to health care,’these lawmakers haveinvoked‘mothers, daughters, wives, sisters and friends who may one day find themselves without health care’to try to obtainsupport for their misguided attempts to fund Planned Parenthood.After viewing this video, we ask, who in their right mind would trust their mother, wife, sister, friend and especially their minor daughter to Planned Parenthood?”
“New Jersey taxpayers and every state and federal elected official and law enforcement agency throughout this country should be outraged that an organization claiming to conduct ‘extensive community outreach’ has been caught on tape doing everything in its power to conceal the sexual abuse and exploitation of girls as young as 14. When Planned Parenthood says they provide ‘family planning’ services and brags that ‘we welcome everyone – regardless of race, age, income, sexual orientation, or disability,’ what they really mean is that they’re willing to make money on anyone, even child sex slaves,” said Tasy.
“We urge Congress to Defund Planned Parenthood and call on the U.S. Attorney General, the U.S. District Attorney and the NJ Attorney Generalto immediately launch a complete investigation intoPlanned Parenthood clinics and Metropolitan Medical Association in Englewood, NJ’soperations for aiding and abetting in the sexual abuse andtrafficking of minors.We thank Governor Christie for vetoing legislation in July which would have restored $7.6 million in funds to Planned Parenthood and urge him to veto A3273/S2393 so that the state of NJ and its taxpayers will not be complicit in the exploitation of poor women and minors under the pretense of ‘women’s health.’We also call on Assembly Speaker Oliver and Senate President Sweeney to fulfill their obligationto protect minor girls in NJby scheduling hearings on ACR71/SCR99, the Parental Notification Constitutional Amendment without delay,” said Tasy.
Amy Woodruff, the Planned Parenthood manager in the video was not available for comment when MMM called. The women who answered the phone at the Perth Amboy office said someone would call back. MMM will update this story when and if they do.
