Third Planned Parenthood Abortion Business Caught Covering Up Statutory Rape

Indianapolis, IN (LifeNews.com) — A staff member at a third Planned Parenthood abortion business in three weeks has been caught on videotape covering up a potential case of statutory rape. This tape involves in Indianapolis Planned Parenthood and it could lead to a widening of the investigation the state’s attorney general has announced.
The first case showed a Charlotte, North Carolina Planned Parenthood covering up an incident of statutory rape.
A second tape showed a staffer named Diana telling Lila Rose, a UCLA student who posed as a 13-year-old girl who had sexual relations with a man more than twice her age, that she didn’t want to know any more about the incident.
This third, newly-released footage from this past summer shows Rose, who again claims she is an underage girl who had sex with an older man, hearing from employees about her sexual abuse.
This time, two Planned Parenthood employees say they "don’t care" about the age difference between a 31-year-old man and the 13-year-old girl he was reported to have impregnated.
"We don’t really care about who, what, the age of the boyfriend," the unnamed Planned Parenthood staff member says.
A second Planned Parenthood counselor adds, "I don’t care how old he is."
Like the staff member Diana at the first Indiana Planned Parenthood exposed on tape, the staff at the Indianapolis facility tell Rose that she can get an abortion in another state without her parents knowing: "The surrounding states don’t have parental consent. I can’t tell you anymore."
As was the case with the Planned Parenthood facility in Bloomington, the Indianapolis abortion center apparently did not report the sexual abuse to state authorities as required by Indiana law.
Rose tells LifeNews.com the additional videotape is very concerning because is shows an emerging pattern of abuse, as more abortion center counselors evade their legal responsibility to report the statutory rape of young girls.
She says the lack of reporting and Planned Parenthood staffers looking the other way makes it so young girls remain trapped in cycles of sexual abuse.
Although the Bloomington abortion center fired its nurse and Indiana Attorney General Steve Carter has launched an investigation, Rose said this is not an isolated incident.
"We have more videos documenting this pattern of law-breaking within Planned Parenthood. There are actual cases all across the country where their failure to follow state statutes has allowed predators to continue their sexual abuse of young girls," she told LifeNews.com.
"We applaud Mr. Carter’s integrity and urge him to conduct a thorough and complete investigation, despite any political attacks Planned Parenthood may attempt against him personally or his office," she added.
Rose challenges Planned Parenthood to cooperate in any investigation.
"Planned Parenthood must release files they have previously sued to keep private and allow state authorities to conduct a complete investigation," she says. "Mandatory reporting laws are necessary for the protection of young girls, and Planned Parenthood must not be allowed to sabotage them."
The new footage is the second video in Live Action Film’s "Mona Lisa Project," a series of investigations documenting abuses at Planned Parenthood facilities when it comes to protecting young girls.
