BuzzFeed, the listicle site of record, has come under fire from left-wingers due to a recent list post ‘8 Outrageous Things Planned Parenthood Was Caught Doing‘ that was posted on its community area.
BuzzFeed staff members did not author the post, instead it was by an anti-abortion group called PersonhoodUSA. Even so, the left is outraged that BuzzFeed would allow equal assess and differing viewpoints to appear on one of their favorite list sites.
Insane, right? There’s an actual, honest-to-goodness, no apologies pro-life post on BuzzFeed. How can this sort of thing happen in America in 2013?
The New York Observer’s Kara Bloomgarden-Smoke decided to check with BuzzFeed editor-in-chief Ben Smith, who assured her that BuzzFeed is ”in the process of figuring out where and whether we should draw lines about what’s appropriate on what we conceived as an open platform.” The post slamming Planned Parenthood appears in BuzzFeed’s reader-submitted “Community” section and was the work of community contributor Personhood USA — not BuzzFeed staff, who instead publish strictly objective, fact-checked posts like, “The Internet Celebrates Texas State Senator Wendy Davis’ Filibuster,” “Parody of ‘Blurred Lines’ Stands Up for Women’s Rights in Texas” and “6 Times Wendy Davis Was a ‘Cool Mom’ In Her Vogue Profile.”
Smith noted further, “there isn’t a single link on BuzzFeed to this story.” But still, it exists. It’s on the web right now. What if someone, like, stumbles upon it while checking out the latest cat GIFs and, you know, reads it?
Seems that leftest are fine when BuzzFeed staff celebrates abortion advocate Wendy Davis but complain that they somehow have crossed the line by allowing a pro-life group from publishing a list on their community site:
So whats all the Buzz about? (sorry we couldn’t help it)
Here is a portion of the List Post ‘8 Outrageous Things Planned Parenthood Was Caught Doing’ on BuzzFeed.
5. Lying About Abortion-Related Deaths
Investigators called Planned Parenthood abortion clinics with recent cases of medical emergencies and botched abortions in 7 different states asking if Planned Parenthood’s abortion practice was safe and if women had ever been hurt at the clinics. Not a single Planned Parenthood abortion clinic acknowledged the recent injuries of women.
4. Lying About Offering Mammograms
Wait, Planned Parenthood doesn’t offer mammograms? Nope. They don’t. Not a single Planned Parenthood in the country offers mammograms. And they’ve been caught lying about it! One might call it… a Mammosham.
After calling 30 Planned Parenthood clinics in 27 states, investigators discovered that not a single clinic offered mammogram scans. “We don’t provide those services whatsoever,” admitted one staffer.
3. Covering Up Child Sex Trafficking
A series of undercover investigations discovered that Planned Parenthood was willing and ready to help a pimp cover up a child sex ring. At this New Jersey Planned Parenthood, the manager 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.” Abortion frequently conceals the evidence of sex trafficking among minors.
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 was later fired.
2. Illegally Not Reporting Child Rape
You know those pesky laws against statutory rape, designed to protect children from adult sexual predators? Well, Planned Parenthood doesn’t follow reporting laws when it comes to that kind of child rape. In fact, they advise minors on how to get around them.
Eight Planned Parenthood clinics in five different states were willing to cover-up sexual abuse, disregarding mandatory suspected statutory rape reporting laws. Clinics also provided instructions on how to circumvent parental consent laws. This video shows a clinic staffer advising a 13-year-old girl to keep the age of her 31-year-old boyfriend a secret.
1. Lobbying Against Protections For Babies Born Alive After Failed Abortions
Yes, you read that correctly. Planned Parenthood lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow lobbied against extending protections to children who are born alive after failed abortions, saying “any decision that’s made should be left up to the woman, the family, and the physician.”
Other abortion providers (not Planned Parenthood locations) admitted that they will allow babies to die if they are unexpectedly born alive. In fact, they will take steps to ensure the baby’s death, like convicted abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell!
Good information right? Everyone should be aware of Planned Parenthood lies and deception. According to Planned Parenthood Advocates, BuzzFeed should immediately take ‘8 Outrageous Things Planned Parenthood Was Caught Doing’ down because it is all Lies, lies!

Like we say here at Politisite, The Left loves free speech as long as they are the ones speaking. Certainly groups like PersonhoodUSA should be restricted, treated as propaganda and their materials should be burned in the Public Square!
All Lies just because the left says it is so. It’s turtles all the way down!
We disagree. You may reach PersonhoodUSA here
