The former director of a leading abortion advocacy group has been caught in a child sex sting. Scott Richard Swirling, who was the director of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA), was arrested for attempting to arrange for a sexual encounter with a twelve-year-old girl. He was charged with traveling across state lines to engage in illicit sexual conduct, a crime which carries a penalty of up to 30 years.

The Washington Examiner newspaper has more details:

Scott Richard Swirling, 61, thought he was discussing plans to meet a District man who was offering to let him have sex with his preteen daughter, authorities said.

It turns out Swirling was dealing with an undercover D.C. police officer.

Swirling, of Gaithersburg, was arrested Tuesday and charged with traveling across state lines to engage in illicit sexual conduct, a crime which carries a penalty of up to 30 years.

Swirling is the third white-collar worker — including an FBI analyst — to be arrested in the sting in less than six weeks.

Swirling served as executive director of the American School Counselor Association and the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association before starting his own law firm construction business 10 years ago, according to his website’s biography.

The newspaper reports how Swirling pursued arranging a meeting with the father of the girl with whom he hoped to have sex. Swirling worried about a police sting but pressed forward with arranging the meeting anyway.

Swirling answered an online advertisement on Monday that had been placed by a task force made up of D.C. police officers and FBI agents.

The detective wrote that he was a “taboo dad” with a “12-year-old girl, very perverted.”

Swirling, using the screen name “squiggles 12353,” responded, “Kindered [sic] spirts.”

Over several hours, the two men traded emails discussing their interests in underage girls and traded photos of young girls, including that of the detective’s purported 12-year-old daughter.

Swirling asked for more pictures of the girl and, once he felt assured he was not trapped in a police investigation, he met at the arranged location and was arrested.



The pro-life group Secular Pro-Life responded to the news with more information about the pro-abortion group Swirling worked for and its relationship with the Planned Parenthood abortion business.

“Sexual predators who impregnate underage girls rely on cooperative abortion clinics to cover up their crimes.  As Live Action, Life Dynamics, and others have documented, Planned Parenthood abortion clinics frequently fail to comply with mandatory reporting laws,” it said.

“The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association strongly supports taxpayer funding for abortion clinics.  Many Planned Parenthood affiliates are NFPRHA members,” it added. “There is no mention of Mr. Swirling on the NFPRHA website.”

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, responded, “Nobody should be surprised that people who advocate the murder of children would be involved in the sexual abuse of children.”

Crutcher exposed the covering of the sexual abuse of children by the abortion industry in his project: Child Predators. Audio and Transcripts of the child predator investigation conducted by Crutcher uncovered and overwhelming body of statistical evidence which show the rate at which the abortion industry failed to comply with mandatory reporting laws is in excess of 90 percent.
