Debate continues on Live Action tactics

Catholic World News - February 23, 2011

EWTN provides a balanced summary of the debate among Catholic theologians over the morality of the tactics used by Live Action in its undercover campaign to expose Planned Parenthood.

The key questions: Is it ever morally justifiable to tell a lie? And how is a "lie" defined?

    Did the Nazis deserve the truth when they would ask someone if they were harboring Jews in their households? I answer unequivocably - NO! (Read CCC 2484 on the gravity of lying.) The same goes for PP, they don't deserve the truth. The sting would only work if Live Action were posing as they did. Otherwise, the violations, which have been documented and vindicated by prior stings, would not have been successful. Go Live Action. May God bless you in your crusade.
