Planned Parenthood BDSM Counselor ‘No Longer Employed’

The Indiana Planned Parenthood staff member filmed encouraging an underage client to engage in violent sexual practices “is no longer employed at PPINK [Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky],” the Indianapolis Star reports.

“This video clearly does not reflect our professional standards or training protocols,” said a statement from Planned Parenthood President and CEO Betty Cockrum. ”This video does not reflect the work our dedicated employees do every day, nor the experience shared by parents and teens who participate in our programs.”

In an undercover video released by Live Action on Wednesday, the unidentified staff member cheerfully suggested a variety of violent sex acts to an investigator posing as a 15-year-old, including whipping, spanking, biting, and bondage. The staffer also advised the undercover investigator about how to purchase sex toys and access porn without her parents’ knowledge.

Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Tammy Lieber would not reveal whether the staff member was fired or left voluntarily, or when she stopped working there.

Live Action president Lila Rose said that such counseling is far from an aberration, and that her organization will release more videos showing similar exchanges at Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the country.

In 2011, Planned Parenthood fired a clinic manager who was filmed giving advice to a Live Action investigator posing as a sex trafficker about the best way to get medical exams for underage prostitutes.

Planned Parenthood received roughly $500 million in taxpayer funds last year.
