Planned Parenthood to retrain employees in response to misconduct caught on video

    Video that surfaced last week of Planned Parenthood employees breaking clinic regulations has promoted the agency to retrain its employees. One of the offending clinics in the investigation is in Central New Jersey.

    An Associated Press report says Planned Parenthood will retrain its employees by April 1, with an emphasis on reporting harm to minors to the appropriate authorities.

    Anti-abortion group Live Action sent members posing as a pimp and his underage prostitute to the New Jersey clinic last month, where the manager failed to assist the girl and was willing to assist in the abortion without alerting authorities. She is seen giving advice to the supposed pimp about how to run his business. The video was posted on YouTube with an updated disclaimer saying the manager featured in the video has been fired.
