Indiana Lawmaker Calls For Planned Parenthood Defunding After Video Exposés

This is yet another story you will not hear about from NBC, ABC, CBS or CNN nor will you read about it on the front page of the Washington Post or New York Times.

We all know that Planned Parenthood of Indiana openly defied Indiana law by counseling a girl whom they believed to be only 13 years old to lie about the age of the man whom they believed was 31 years old and had gotten her pregnant. In fact, it happened at two different Planned Parenthood clinics on the same day and the actions of the PP staff in each case were almost identical.

SECOND Indiana Planned Parenthood Hides Rape Of 13-Year-Old

Now, an Indiana State Representative has called for Planned Parenthood to be defunded for their efforts at circumventing Indiana State law. Rep. Jakie Walorski has written a letter to to Attorney General Steve Carter and Social Services Secretary Mitch Roob asking for an investigation into Planned Parenthood.

From Life Site News:

“Seeing these events occur at two different locations in Indiana and seeing 3 different employees react in virtually the same manner, showing a blatant disregard for all Indiana laws pertaining to protecting minors from sexual abuse, today, I called for the ‘defunding’ of Planned Parenthood of Indiana,” said Walorski in a statement released yesterday. Walorski also asked the Indiana’s Social Services to suspend Medicaid funding.

“This story has flown into the national spotlight because of the blatant disregard for Indiana’s law regarding the protection of minors,” Walorski said.

“It is unacceptable for this pattern of behavior to be happening at two different Planned Parenthood clinics, in different parts of the State; therefore, I believe we must look out for the safety of Hoosier minors in this State and proceed with the full investigation of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.”

Indiana Right to Life is coupling Walorski’s call with its own appeal to Marion County Prosecutor Carl Brizzi to immediately launch an investigation into Marion County Planned Parenthood offices to determine if child sexual abuse is being reported as required by Indiana law.

Planned Parenthood has no excuse for what they did in these videos. Even if Lila Rose wasn’t really thirteen years old, the Planned Parenthood staffers believed she was only thirteen and mostly likely acted as they were trained to act in such a case.

And as I wrote earlier, you won’t see this in Old Media.

Pro-Abortion Groups Issue Marching Orders For Obama Administration

Despite the obvious unethical behavior of groups like Planned Parenthood that coach 13-year-old girls on how to hide the sex crimes committed against them, pro-abortion groups have issued their instructions to Barack Obama. Given that the Obama transition team has posted the memo on-line, it looks as though they are going to follow these orders to the letter.

Steven Ertelt of Life Site News has this:

A coalition of dozens of pro-abortion groups have issued a 55-page memorandum and the web site for the Barack Obama transition team posted it online. The new memo from groups like Planned Parenthood and NARAL gives Obama his marching orders for the next four years.

What do the orders include? Douglas Johnson of National Right to Life notes the following:

“The pro-abortion lobby has presented its radical abortion agenda to the Obama Administration in a single tidy 55-page package — even including the exact language of presidential orders that these lobbying groups want Obama to sign,” he explained.

“The groups instruct the Obama Administration that it should propose repeal of the Hyde Amendment, and include an abortion mandate in a ‘health care reform’ bill, within the first 100 days. Longer-term goals include the so-called ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ and packing the federal courts with judges who are pre-committed to vote with the pro-abortion side,” Johnson added.

The memo calls for Obama to strike all limits on taxpayer funded abortion in various circumstances.

“The President’s budget should strike language restricting abortion funding for (i) Medicaid-eligible women and Medicare beneficiaries (Hyde amendment); (ii) federal employees and their dependents (FEHB program); (iii) residents of the District of Columbia; (iv) Peace Corps volunteers; (v) Native-American women; and (vi) women in federal prisons,” it says.

In other words, the pro-abortion lobby wants to use abortion as a means of birth control rather than teaching responsibility on the part of potential parents. That even includes defunding abstinence training programs.

The memo urges Obama to take other actions like putting together a federal health care plan that covers abortion, reduce abstinence education funding, and pull down information from federal web sites that talks about the medical and mental health problems women suffer after abortions.

It also calls on Obama to only appoint pro-abortion judges to the Supreme Court and lower federal courts.

The memo includes the actual text Obama should use for Executive Orders and Presidential Memorandums, legislative language changes, new regulatory initiatives, and a list of judicial vacancies.

Johnson says pro-life advocates have a clear list of what they will need to oppose immediately after Obama takes office and he urges all pro-life advocates to get involved immediately to stop these proposals.

The pro-abortion lobby also called for more funding for Planned Parenthood despite the unethical and illegal behavior that Planned Parenthood routinely engages in and the fact that Planned Parnethood has turned into a franchise abortion mill with an annual income of over $1 billion. I’m pretty sure that money could be better used in medical research to cure diseases rather than killing innocent, unborn children.

If you would like to give comment to the Obama transition team about the pro-abortion agenda that has been dictated to them, feel free to do so here: Advancing Reproductive Rights (i.e. abortion) In The New Administration. But do not expect them to be the least bit respectful of your pro-life views.

More On The Video Of A Planned Parenthood Nurse Caught Covering Up A Case Of Statutory Rape

To recap, you can access the video on-line here:

Planned Parenthood Conceals Abuse Of 13-Year-Old

Writing for the Washington Times, Victor Morton has some more information about the video, how it was produced and what the various responses have been:

Planned Parenthood of Indiana has suspended a nurse after the release of an undercover videotape showing her coaching a supposed 13-year-old on how to duck Indiana’s laws about parental consent on abortion and the reporting of child sex abuse.

The videotape shows Lila Rose, the president of a university pro-life group and a brunette, posing as a blond 13-year-old girl named “Brianna” and telling the Planned Parenthood nurse at the clinic in Bloomington, Ind., that she is pregnant by a 31-year-old man.

The nurse, who is referred to on the video as “Diana” but whose face has been blurred, knew neither that the session was being taped nor that “Brianna” really was Miss Rose, a 20-year-old pro-life activist at the University of California at Los Angeles.

Miss Rose told The Washington Times on Thursday that this footage is only part of an ongoing project with many examples of such conduct. Her group and other student pro-lifers have released tapes of similar counseling.

Indiana is not one of 12 states that restricts or prohibits surreptitious taping.

Lila Rose is certainly one courageous and resourceful young lady. Her efforts at exposing Planned Parenthood for what it really is are among the most admirable journalistic endeavors I have seen in a long, long time.

More:

Planned Parenthood of Indiana quickly suspended “Diana” without pay on Wednesday and vowed an investigation.

“We are deeply concerned about the content of the video. … The apparent actions of the employee would be in violation of our strict policies and procedures,” Betty Cockrum, the state chapter’s president, said in a statement.

“A thorough internal investigation of this matter has begun. … Further disciplinary action will be taken if warranted by the investigation.”

I, for one, find it very hard to believe that Planned Parenthood didn’t already know this was happening. I mean, this is the same organization that is selling gift certificates so that women can celebrate Christmas by killing their unborn children.

This response is a little more disturbing:

Indiana law requires health care providers and others to report a sexual act between an adult and a person younger than 14 to law enforcement or the Department of Child Protective Services. Not reporting such an act is a misdemeanor punishable under state law by a maximum of 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.

A city spokesman said Thursday that the Bloomington City Police is not investigating the clinic or the nurse for suspicions of violating the statutory-rape notification law, but is beefing up security around the facility to protect it from any backlash.

“There’s no investigation taking place, but they have stepped up patrols around the area,” said Danny Lopez, communications director for the city of Bloomington. Patrols have been stepped up in case anybody has a strong reaction to the situation, but he said there have been no problems.

You read that right. The police are not investigating Planned Parenthood for violating the law or for attempting to cover-up a case of statutory rape. They are protecting the abortion clinic.

That makes no sense whatsoever. Given the fact that there have been no problems with security at the clinic, why not investigate this clinic and all Planned Parenthood clinics since they have more than enough probable cause to do so and would be acting in good faith? To do otherwise is an admission that they are willing to look the other way whenever a young girl is raped.

But, I really like what the Mona Lisa Project has been doing and all of the corruption they’ve uncovered about pro-abortion groups:

The Mona Lisa Project, she added in a statement, “demonstrates how quickly the abortion industry’s disrespect for unborn children becomes disregard for all humans. Planned Parenthood offers no solutions for the victim of statutory rape – they give her an abortion and a bag of condoms and sent her straight back into the arms of the abuser.”

This incident also is not the first time surreptitious taping by Miss Rose and other pro-life college students has embarrassed Planned Parenthood.

• Last month, Students for Life of America released a video taken over the summer of a college student posing as a 15-year-old girl telling staffers at a Charlotte, N.C., clinic about emergency contraception because of unprotected sex with her mother’s 30-something live-in boyfriend.

The Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledge this as statutory rape. Students for Life filed a state Public Records Request that showed that Planned Parenthood never reported anything to authorities.

• Last year, Live Action Films students posed as racists to tape phone calls in which several Planned Parenthood chapters accept donations on condition that the money be used to abort blacks.

In one call, Autumn Kersey, vice president of marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho, is told that the caller has been hurt by affirmative action and “we just think, the less black kids out there the better.” Miss Kersey nervously laughs and says “understandable.”

The Idaho chapter later called accepting the money “a serious mistake.”

• Also in 2007, Miss Rose videotaped a Planned Parenthood staffer in California telling her, while posing as a 15-year-old pregnant by a 23-year-old boyfriend, to lie about her age so the staffer wouldn’t have to report anything under statutory rape laws.

“You could say 16,” the worker helpfully suggests. “Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don’t know anything.” Planned Parenthood responded by threatening a lawsuit over the surreptitious taping.

Not only is Planned Parenthood enabling rapists to prey on young girls, they are apparently racists as well. But that makes sense since one of Margaret Sanger’s original intentions for Planned Parenthood was to eliminate the African-American population.

My hat is off to Lila Rose, the Mona Lisa Project, Live Actions Films and the Students for Life of America. They have taken on an issue that Old Media is diliberately ignoring. Further, they are exposing corruption and criminal activity while Old Media has been trying to hide it.

Lila Rose, may God bless you and your friends who have taken up such a noble cause and fought such an honorable fight.
