Planned Parenthood Says Abortion Foes Used Fake Website to Gather Women's Personal Information


"One of the things we did was reached out immediately to the California state A.G. to alert them about this website because we're concerned there may be women out there giving confidential medical information out on the website, or delaying care based on information on the website," Ferrero said.

"California has some of the strictest consumer protection laws on issues just like this, so we've asked the state A.G. out there to open up an official investigation," he said.

A spokesman for the Attorney General's office said they had received the letter from Planned Parenthood and were reviewing it.

"The real shame is that this does nothing to help women get the health care they need," Ferrero said. "This is just dirty tricks in the closing weeks of an election, where the stakes on women's health are extremely high. We look at this as, these are the kind of dirty tricks you have to do when you can't win elections based on your ideas."
