Planned Parenthood false flag: they hacked their own website to play victim as a public relations gimmick

by J. D. Heyes

(NaturalNews) In the days following revelations that Planned Parenthood officials were caught on video making deals to traffic body parts of aborted babies for profit, alleged anti-abortion hackers launched a DDOS - Direct Denial of Service - attack on the organization's website.

As reported by

The attack on Planned Parenthood follows a storm of controversy over the organization. Anti-abortion activists sparked the uproar earlier this month with the release of an edited video showing a Planned Parenthood director discussing the donation of fetus organs and tissue to medical research facilities, a legal but highly controversial practice.

One of the hackers, who goes by the pseudonym "E," told the
Daily Dot that the cyberattack was politically motivated.

"Trying to mold an atrocious monstrosity into socially acceptable behaviors is repulsive," said E. "Obviously what [Planned Parenthood] does is a very ominous practice. It'll be interesting to see what surfaces when [Planned Parenthood] is stripped naked and exposed to the public."

Only, it turns out the "hack" could have been just a ploy launched by Planned Parenthood itself as a way to distract from the story, a public relations stunt or prevent pro-life advocates from voicing their anger, disgust and frustration with the organization.

"Next time you lie, check your source code"

As reported by The Federalist:

Planned Parenthood claims on one of its several websites that the organization's web operations have been attacked by "extremists," but this so-called hacking has all the hallmarks of an orchestrated public relations stunt.

Numerous people on Twitter pointed to evidence suggesting that this so-called hack wasn't a hack at all.

Pundit and Internet publisher Stephen Miller noted in a tweet that PP's site "is so hacked right now that someone has been rearranging CSS fonts and alignment," referring to text and the physical location of wording.

Another Twitter user wondered how a PP site that was under DDOS attack could still load content from its server.

Other 'Net savvy Twitter users wondered why, if the site was actually down, why the web design template used was characterized as a "campaign."

"Because it is a campaign," the user wrote. "Next time you lie, check your source code."

As reported by The Federalist, a review of the source code at the site's main page at showed that, as of 9:30 a.m. July 30, the page is listed as a "Campaign." Further, the page uses a template named "Site Down Tempalte" [sic].

That same page then directed visitors to Planned Parenthood Action Fund, the political fundraising division of the nation's biggest abortion provider, on Facebook.

Pattern of denial, deflection and burying story

In addition, the web page for the PPAF, which is accessible from both and, repeated the identical claims of hacking, and contains precisely the same source code and template used on the page.

"And that's where Planned Parenthood's hacking facade begins to crumble," The Federalist reported. "On the splash page declaring that the organization was hacked, visitors are asked 'Why do you stand with Planned Parenthood' and invited to share their stories on a separate page housed at" [that page is located here].

And guess what? That page is perfectly functional - nothing like, say, the Obama administration's site when it was launched, to tragic fanfare. No signs of hacking or intrusions of DDOS; a perfectly functioning and secure web page that is there to build the organization's mailing list.

Planned Parenthood is pulling out all the stops to deflect blame, recast the scandal as a "war on women's health," and get the mainstream media to drop the story altogether. In the meantime, the Obama administration has sicced the Justice Department on the Center for Medical Progress, the organization that launched an undercover investigation into PP's body parts trafficking.

So faking a hack for sympathy falls in line with the group's other deflection tactics.
