Planned Parenthood: Aiding and Abetting Kidnappers?

Another cover-up by a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic spells more trouble for the organization's track record on sexual abuse cases.

From "Planned Parenthood: Aiding and Abetting Kidnappers?" by Tony Perkins, posted 8/6/07 at Family Research Council

Last week, police in Connecticut confirmed that employees of Planned Parenthood performed an abortion on a 15-year-old girl who was a victim of statutory rape without reporting the incident to state authorities.

According to the report, the girl wouldn't name a father to clinic workers, but a paternity test on the baby's remains concluded that 41-year-old Adam Gault was responsible.

This is the latest in a long line of accusations that Planned Parenthood has performed abortions on victims of sexual abuse with little or no regard for the situation of the frightened young girls before them. Connecticut, in its wisdom, has no law requiring parental involvement in abortion. This fact clearly aided Gault in his criminal assault. None of this excuses Planned Parenthood's lack of curiosity about the victim they ought to have detected and rescued from this predator.
