Cuccinelli uses video to set sites on Planned Parenthood

leave a comment »

Almost immediately in the wake of the news that a conservative group had covert video of Planned Parenthood in a compromising position, one of the the first question that went out is, “how will Ken Cuccinelli react?”.  The controversial Attorney General is  one of, if not the most stridently pro-life politicians in Virginia. He is not afraid to use his office to fight his battles.  In the moments following the release of the video, Cuccinelli’s response was measured.

“My office has not yet received the complete and unedited video footage.  However, what I have seen so far is very disturbing.  After my staff and I review the full video and consult with our state and local regulatory and law enforcement partners, I likely will have more to say about this.  For now, we are in fact-finding mode.”

Now less than a week later, we are getting an idea of what direction the Attorney General plans to take.  Here is my story from NBC12:

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – The debate continues over this controversial undercover video taken at a local Planned Parenthood clinic. The video, by the conservative group Live Action, features actors pretending to be a pimp and prostitute and soliciting an abortion and birth control for underage girls.

The actors imply that there are girls that have been brought in from other countries. It is the implication that Planned Parenthood did nothing about a couple claiming to be involved in human trafficking that the Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is taking issue with.

Cuccinelli, is one of the most prominent pro-life politicians in Virginia and is no friend of Planned Parenthood. This weekend he took that opposition one step further by accusing the group of being complicit in sex trafficking across the country.

The video is meant to illicit a reaction. It features a man claiming to want services for underage girls from out of the country.
