Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin in hot water over stolen video from WisconsinEye

Planned Parenthood has repeatedly shown that they believe they are above the law, don’t have to follow rules, and can generally do whatever they want with no repercussions.  But in Wisconsin, they’re actually getting called out for it.

WisconsinEye — the public affairs televison channel and website that essentially serves as Wisconsin’s own C-SPAN for the state Legislature — issued a statement Thursday slamming Planned Parenthood, saying the abortion rights group violated its user agreement with the network by featuring video footage it purchased from WisEye in an attack advertisement targeting Senate President Mike Ellis, R-Neenah.

The ad shows Ellis angrily pounding his gavel and telling Democrats to sit down during a heated Senate floor debate over a bill requiring doctors who provide abortions to have hospital admitting privileges. The bill passed, but was blocked by a federal judge over concerns that the law may be unconstitutional.

WisEye’s user agreement explicitly prohibits political or commercial use of its content, such as if it is “disseminated in any way that expressly advocates the election, defeat, recall or retention of a clearly identified candidate or a particular vote at a referendum.”


Planned Parenthood did then remove the footage from their ad…only to purchase the exact same footage from a different source.
