Planned Parenthood lies about adoption and confidentiality

Author Phoebe Lee tells the following story from a series of interviews she did:

“In one case, a 19-year-old asked a Planned Parenthood counselor for adoption options. According to her, they could not provide her with adoption assistance. The reasons for this are unknown. They told her she could go to the local health department or children’s services to learn about such options, but “her privacy may not be guaranteed.” The girl chose to abort.”

According to the interview, the representative from the Planned Parenthood office in question indicated that most health departments and children’s services offices would not guarantee the anonymity of the birth mother. Research showed this to be untrue.
