They're at it again. Last week, a woman using a fake name and claiming to be associated with an apparently nonexistent medical clinic approached Planned Parenthood Action Fund to offer a substantial donation in support of our electoral work. This was an elaborate hoax, believed to be arranged in association with anti-Planned Parenthood group Live Action — likely designed to gain more support for Mitt Romney's campaign.
Just weeks before an election with so much at stake for women's health, I'm disgusted that Live Action would lie to our staff, and to the public, all while putting the health of real women at risk — and possibly breaking the law. Please see our press release below to learn more about this incident and the steps we are taking to fight back against this attack on women's health, including bringing this scam to the attention of the California attorney general.
Our top priority is, and will continue to be, ensuring that all women, men, and young people have access to safe, reliable healthcare, and you can be sure that we won't allow underhanded tricks like these to distract us at this critical time.
Together, we will continue to work to elect candidates that will be champions for women's health. Thank you for standing with us.
