Was Live Action Wrong to Set Up Planned Parenthood?

Is telling a lie the same as practicing deception?

How do we justify what law enforcement agencies do when they arrange to infiltrate a crime organize, even a terror organization, by using false identities and personal histories?

These questions can't even be discussed until one determines the morality of telling a falsehood.

Did Live Action do something immoral by creating a contrived scenario in order to expose Planned Parenthood?

Over at The Catholic Thing, Francis Beckwith offers his perspective on the Planned Parenthood "sting" by Live Action. I think he makes an excellent point about the moral use of falsehoods in Scripture. Read the story and let me know what you think.
