An Arizona pr0-life group wants a Planned Parenthood abortion business investigated that allowed tee girls to be victimized by statutory rape because it failed to properly report a rapist.

Planned Parenthood abortion clinics have come under fire countless times over the years for not reporting cases of statutory rape to authorities as required by state law. Earlier this year, in Arizona, officials says the abortion giant failed again to provide the proper report to authorities about a victim of a young man who is a serial rapist.

Not only did Planned Parenthood intentionally fail to report the rape but, in so doing, it allowed the rapist to rape as many as 18 or more teenage girls, authorities say, making it so the abortion company is partially responsible for victimizing them as well.

Tyler Kost, 18, is accused of raping or molesting at least 18 girls, most of them fellow classmates at Poston Butte High School. He is being held without bond in the Pinal County jail.

In forensic interviews with Sheriff’s Office sex crime detectives, a girl who says she became pregnant after Kost raped her last year visited a Planned Parenthood clinic with her mother on New Year’s Eve. According to the report, her mom told the staffer about the sexual assault during the visit.

“The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter,” the PCSO report states. “The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.”

That’s a violation of Arizona law, which requires all suspected sexual abuse incidents be reported to law enforcement.

Aaron Baer, the communications director for the pro-life Center for Arizona Policy, told LifeNews today that his group is calling for an investigation.

Eighteen year-old Tyler Kost has been indicted by the Pinal County Attorney on 27 counts of sexual assault and abuse. One of the young girls he raped in late 2013 was taken to the Tempe Planned Parenthood by her mother to obtain an abortion last January,” he said. “According to police reports, at the consultation, a Planned Parenthood counselor told the young girl and her mother that it wasn’t worth the hassle to report the rape to the authorities. By law, Planned Parenthood is required to report this assault to authorities within 24 hours.”
The indictment of Tyler Kost alleges that from the time Planned Parenthood intentionally did not report the rape, three other girls were raped and Kost sexually assaulted one other before he was arrested in May,” Baer adds. “Our daughters and sisters deserve better!

CAP is urging Arizona residents to sign a petition calling for an investigation.

Planned Parenthood denies it did anything wrong, according to an official statement the abortion business released. That’s despite its long history of covering up sexual abuse and statutory rape.

In Illinois, the state now requires abortion centers to join legitimate medical facilities in reporting cases of statutory rape to authorities in order for young girls to be protected. That’s something Planned Parenthood opposed.

In Ohio, a lawsuit in which Planned Parenthood was found to have violated an Ohio informed consent law has been “resolved and dismissed,” according to the Alliance Defense Fund allied attorney who filed the suit. ADF-allied attorney Brian Hurley represents the parents of a girl who, at age 14, was brought to a Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion by the 22-year-old soccer coach who impregnated her.

Earlier this year, a pro-life organization that conducted an undercover investigation in 2002 released additional tapes showing staff at hundreds of abortion centers across the country covering up statutory rape. Life Dynamics released tapes from some of the 813 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation centers it calls across the country. The group placed the calls from Texas, where it is legal to record a phone conversation without the consent of the other party. in the phone calls, an actress portrayed a 13-year-old girl who claimed her 22-year-old boyfriend impregnated her and that she wanted an abortion to keep her parents from finding out.

Also, previously, Live Action footage showed three centers in southern Virginia, a Perth Amboy, New Jersey abortion business and a Planned Parenthood center in Richmond, Virginia all having staffers helping the alleged sex traffickers find information on how to obtain abortions without facing scrutiny and get STD testing for the girls.

A Planned Parenthood staffer in New Jersey has already been fired, New Jersey officials are looking into a shoddy abortion center Planned Parenthood referred to in its video, and the Virginia attorney general has received the full footage of the Richmond Planned Parenthood expose’. All three of the new videos clearly show staff willing to aid and abet the sexual trafficking and exploitation of minors and young women and the videos, Lila Rose of Live Action says, provide more evidence of a clear, disturbing pattern of gross misconduct by Planned Parenthood.

The videos have a Roanoke, Virginia abortion facility staffer suggesting the sex trafficker consider going to the health department instead of taking the girls he is victimizing to the Planned Parenthood — because it would be easier to hide the illegal activity.
