Planned Parenthood Conceals Abuse Of 13-Year-Old
Mone Lisa Project
December 3, 2008
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.
|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.
