Representatives of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) explained that it detected hackers’ attempts to gain access to the abortion providers’ employee information systems. Planned Parenthood has already notified the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice of a possible data breach, which could threaten the privacy and safety of the organization’s staff members.
Planned Parenthood positions itself as the most trusted women’s healthcare provider in the United States, and it is understandable that anti-abortion extremists have always been trying to stop women from accessing the reproductive healthcare they are seeking. There were many cases when they have broken laws, harassed Planned Parenthood’s doctors and patients and produced hack videos. Now, in the age of online social life, they seem to be claiming to have committed a gross invasion of privacy, which could potentially put the organization’s employees at risk.
The representatives of the abortion provider explained they have evidence that the intruders launched an attack on their information systems. According to their claims, the extremists have called on the world’s most sophisticated hackers to assist them in breaching PPFA’s systems and threatening the privacy and safety of its employees.
Planned Parenthood Federation of America announced that they were still investigating whether the intruders really gained access to systems, and refused to provide details about where or how their systems may have been attacked until the investigation ends. According to media reports, the potential data hack was first revealed by the Daily Dot, which cited a hacker group named “3301” as taking responsibility for the attack (however, this information is still officially unconfirmed). 3301 refers to a well-known online puzzle.
It should be noted that Planned Parenthood was targeted 2 weeks after an anti-abortion group started releasing undercover videos of PPFA’s executives discussing fetal tissue procurement. The footage has served as a rallying cry for anti-choice politicians to defund the organization, even though no legal wrongdoing was shown in the videos. Previously, Planned Parenthood called hacker attacks a “new low” for anti-abortion activists.

|Thank you for the article SaM|
I am really fed up with the religious fanatics; so glad we don't have too many crazies here in Aussieland
|People forget that PP gives women affordable & sometimes free prenatal care as well. They are so focused on the negatives that they dont see the whole picture. Abortions are done at hospitals EVERYDAY I dont see them targeting them......|
|I hope the Govt stops funding them. Abortion is one thing, what these "people" (I use that term lightly) are doing is sickening. They should have their funding pulled until a complete the thorough investigation is conducted and criminal charges laid if they have broken any laws. If they are doing the right thing, fine, then everyone knows and its settled. But if selling human fetuses to the highest bidder for profit is proven, they should face the full penalty of law.|
|Those that are after them are not interested in full penalty of "Law" they will punish them, and it will cost them the ultimate price.|

Are you trolling? That is one of the dumbest things I've ever read on this site. You just judged them before doing any investigation. Implying human trafficking is slander and is something I've NEVER heard about PP, ever. That is pure BS from those anti-abortion assholes and that's probably the lowest of the low.
I hope you get investigated for brain cells. SMH.
