Indiana Planned Parenthood Covers Up Sexual Abuse of 13-year Old - Funny videos are here
UCLA student journalist Lila Rose posed as a 13-year-old girl. In an appointment with a Planned Parenthood nurse at its center in Bloomington [Indiana], Rose says she has been impregnated by a 31-year-old man, a clear case of child molestation under Indiana state law.
On tape, the nurse acknowledges her responsibility to report the abuse, but assures Rose she will not.
The nurse then instructs Rose how to obtain a secret abortion by crossing state lines in order to avoid Indiana's parental consent law and she coaches Rose on how to cover for the 31-year-old man by saying he is only 14.
Rose said she and other students in the UCLA pro-life group Live Action recorded the video over the summer in a multi-state investigation of the abortion industry.
She told LifeNews.com that the video is "demonstrating the routine lawlessness of abortion providers at Planned Parenthood."
-- From "Planned Parenthood suspends employee after video on abortion counseling" by Marcela Creps, Herald Times of Bloomington, Indiana 12/3/08
A local Planned Parenthood employee has been suspended after the release of a video surreptitiously shot at a clinic which shows a woman who identifies herself as a 13-year-old being given advice that is a violation of the organization’s policies.
A statement by Betty Cockrum, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Indiana: “We are deeply concerned about the content of the video,” the prepared statement read. “While we cannot be certain whether this video has been altered, the apparent actions of the employee would be in violation of our strict policies and procedures. Therefore, a thorough internal investigation of this matter has begun, and the employee has been put on an immediate, unpaid suspension. Further disciplinary action will be taken if warranted by the investigation.”
A sexual act between an adult and a person who has not reached his or her 14th birthday must be reported to the Department of Child Protective Services or a law enforcement agency, Cockrum said.
Asked what the consequences are for a medical provider not following this procedure, Cockrum said, “It puts that employee at risk with their employment,” and not reporting the incident is a misdemeanor criminal offense.
-- From "Video Expose' Shows Planned Parenthood Abortion Center Hiding Statutory Rape" by Steven Ertelt LifeNews.com Editor 11/30/08
The national pro-life student group decided to stage an undercover investigation after LifeNews.com reports about a 14-year-old Ohio girl who was victimized.
In the Ohio case, the girl's parents filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio for violating the state's parental notification law by not telling them of her abortion, which may have been coerced.
Another girl sued the same Planned Parenthood abortion business saying she had been raped by her father and that the facility failed to notify authorities.
Students for Life of America wanted to know if this same failure to protect girls from abuse was happening in other states.
In June, a college student talked with staff at the Charlotte [North Carolina] Planned Parenthood center posing as a 15 year-old girl who had unprotected sex with her 30-year-old mother's live-in boyfriend. The student tells Planned Parenthood officials the boyfriend suggested she go there to obtain the morning after pill.
Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledged the girl was a victim of statutory rape and admitted they were required to report the incident.
