Second Video Shows Planned Parenthood Not Reporting Girl’s Statutory Rape

Bloomington, IN (LifeNews.com) — A second video this week features a college student going to Planned Parenthood undercover posing as a young girl who is obviously a victim of statutory rape. This new video, of a Planned Parenthood in Indiana, shows that it also failed to report the sexual abuse to authorities.
In the first video, of a Planned Parenthood in Charlotte, North Carolina, a college student tells officials she is 15 and 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.
The pro-life group Students for Life of America filed a North Carolina Public Records Request to find out if the Planned Parenthood location had reported the crime and learned it did not.
In the second video, 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, 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.
"Okay, I didn’t hear the age [of the 31-year-old]. I don’t want to know the age," she tells Rose.
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.
She urges Rose to tell the out-of-state abortion center, "You’ve seen him around, you know he’s 14, he’s in your grade and whatever. You know what I mean."
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."
"Today’s video release is only a sample from many hours of similarly disturbing footage," from other abortion center staff engaging in similar actions, she added. "Planned Parenthood offers no solutions for the victim of statutory rape — they give her an abortion and a bag of condoms and send her straight back into the arms of the abuser."
Jackie Stollar, an Oregon student who accompanied Rose on the investigation told LifeNews.com that Planned Parenthood needs to be held accountable by revoking state and federal funding.
"In a repeated pattern, Planned Parenthood has violated the public trust. It should have its government funding revoked," she said. "During an economic crisis, can the government really spare $300 million to support such an unethical organization?"
