New Video Shows Another Planned Parenthood Abortion Center Covering Up Rape

Tucson, AZ (LifeNews.com) — After two videos depicting Indiana-based Planned Parenthood abortion center staff covering up potential cases of statutory rape, a new video has a Planned Parenthood in Tucson, Arizona doing the same thing. New hidden-camera footage implicates a third abortion facility in covering up a case of sexual abuse.
The new video also features UCLA student Lila Rose, who has become an undercover investigator of sorts by going to abortion centers and posing as an underage girl who has had sexual relations with a much older man.
Rose and her friend Jackie Stollar enter a Tucson Planned Parenthood clinic where Rose tells the nurse that Stollar, posing as a 15-year-old, is pregnant by her 27-year-old boyfriend.
The nurse disregards the age difference and goes as far as cautioning Stollar not to bring her "boyfriend" before the judicial hearing required in Arizona to waive parental consent for an abortion.
Rose contends the negligence shown by the Planned Parenthood staffer is unlawful.
"Is he not a minor?" the Planned Parenthood nurse, who identifies herself as Araceli, asks.
When Rose says, "He’s 27," the nurse urges the girls not to bring him to the hearing: "I wouldn’t take him with me, no. I mean: don’t take him."
The video provides what Rose says is more evidence of a multi-state pattern of abuse and disregard for laws designed to protect minors by having medical personnel report alleged cases of statutory rape to state or local officials.
"These videos demonstrate that Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion provider, is entrenched in an organization-wide policy of circumventing state law and covering up the sexual abuse of young girls," Rose told LifeNews.com on Tuesday.
"Our footage gives the Arizona public and law enforcement a rare window into Planned Parenthood’s careless abortion-first ideology," Rose stated. "With abortion as their first and only solution for the abused victim, Planned Parenthood assists sexual predators by violating the very Arizona state laws that protect children."
Rose says this isn’t the first time a Planned Parenthood in Arizona has failed to report a case of sexual abuse involving a minor girl.
In 2002, an Arizona judge found the abortion business negligent for failing to report the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl by her 23-year-old foster brother, who brought her to a Phoenix-area abortion center for an abortion in 1998.
After Planned Parenthood kept silent about the abuse, the sexual relationship continued and led to a second abortion six months later, Rose explains.
"Planned Parenthood is not above the law. They must cooperate with Arizona state authorities to reveal the full extent of their lawbreaking," Rose, who heads her own group called Live Action Advocates, tells LifeNews.com.
Rose is concerned that state officials may not follow up appropriately to the video as Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard is scheduled to deliver the keynote address today at a Planned Parenthood-sponsored event.
The first video Rose released showed a Bloomington, Indiana Planned Parenthood purposefully not telling state officials of a potential case of sexual abuse and staff members urging Rose to get a secret abortion in another state. That led to the firing of one staff member.
A second video, involving an Indianapolis Planned Parenthood, saw the same coverup and it resulted in one staff member resigning her position.
