RICHMOND, Va. – An anti-abortion group that has targeted Planned Parenthood released a secretly recorded video Thursday that purports to show a couple posing as a pimp and a prostitute receiving abortion and contraceptive counseling at a Virginia clinic for their underage sex workers.

The group, Live Action, said the video illustrates Planned Parenthood’s “willingness to aid and abet in the sexual exploitation of minors and young women.”

Live Action’s president, Lila Rose, also said the videos illustrate Planned Parenthood’s willingness to “circumvent parental consent laws for secret abortions.”

The shaky video and its soundtrack has been given to law enforcement officials, Live Action said.

The group also said it has asked anti-abortion state Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli to investigate “these heinous practices.”

Gov. Bob McDonnell was “deeply troubled” by the video and urged an investigation by local police, spokesman Tucker Martin said.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America defended the Richmond clinic staff member for her professionalism in dealing with “a highly unusual person posing as a patient.”

After the visit the staff member notified her supervisor, who alerted Planned Parenthood’s national security team, the federation said in a statement.

The Richmond video recorded Jan. 12 is similar to a video taken by Live Action on Jan. 13 at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Perth Amboy, N.J.

Following release of the New Jersey videotape, Planned Parenthood said it also had promptly notified law enforcement authorities after the visit, but fired the clinic employee for violating some of the organization’s policies.

In the Richmond video, a clinic worker talks primarily with the man while the woman apparently secretly videotapes the counseling.

They talk about access to abortions, birth control and testing of sexually transmitted diseases for prostitutes described as 14 and 15 and either from out of state or another country.

At one point, the clinic worker discusses an abortion for an underage girl using what she calls a “judicial bypass” so the procedure can be done confidentially and without a legal guardian.

The worker advises the pair an abortion can be cloaked from a parent and adds, “We’re pretty good at handling if someone doesn’t want someone else to know.”
