A Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in New Jersey that was caught on an undercover phone call willing to do an abortion on a 14-year-old girl who it was told was a victim of statutory rape is closing.
The Manville location of Planned Parenthood — the only such clinic in Somerset County — closed its doors effective today, according to a local media report:
“In order to continue making the highest quality reproductive health care and sexual health education accessible to the community, Planned Parenthood of Central and Greater Northern New Jersey has chosen to close the Manville clinic effective August 16th, 2013,” the notice on the door reads.
The media relations department at Planned Parenthood of Central and Northern New Jersey declined to comment on the closing, and its national offices did not return call or email requests for comment Friday.
A woman who answered the phone at the Manville Planned Parenthood clinic in July confirmed the location would be closing within the month, but she said no particular closing date had been set yet.
Meanwhile, a pro-life group exposed the abortion clinic’s willingness to do an abortion on a raped teen. As Life Dynamics emailed LifeNews:
This Planned Parenthood was also the site of an undercover investigation sting conducted by the national pro-life group Life Dynamics.
In 2002, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which we called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.
Planned Parenthood in Manville told our caller, who posed as a 13 year old child impregnated by a 22 year old man, that her “boyfriend’s age was , “None of our concern!”
According to Mark Crutcher, founder of Life Dynamics , “The abortion lobby is engaged in a pedophile protection racket and protecting pedophiles who rape underage girls. These abortion clinics receive money from the federal government. We are literally paying for the rape of our young daughters.”

CLINIC: Planned Parenthood. Barbara speaking.
CALLER: Hi. I was wondering if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we do not.
CALLER: No? Do you know who I would talk — like call or —
CLINIC: You would have to become a patient here and see the doctor. Then you’d have to make your decision based on all the options.
CLINIC: You do options counseling. And if that’s what you decide to do, then you’re given names of different places, and you get to choose which one.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know if they would have to tell my parents before can have an abortion?
CLINIC: No, never. No.
CLINIC: Never, no. There’s a law. No.
CALLER: Because there’s just no way they can find out.
CLINIC: That’s right. Only through you.
CALLER: Okay. They would be furious if they found out that me and my boyfriend were having sex. They think he’s too old for me. Is there any age requirement or anything to have an abortion?
CLINIC: What is it?
CALLER: Is there any age requirement to have an abortion?
CLINIC: Oh. No.
CLINIC: Uh-uh. It’s legal in this state.
CALLER: Okay. So I’m going to be 14 in March. Is that okay?
CLINIC: Yeah. You have a choice.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know — what if I wasn’t pregnant or anything?
CLINIC: What if you weren’t?
CLINIC: So then you should get on birth control.
CLINIC: You would still need to see a doctor here and get a full exam.
CLINIC: Okay? You can come in and take a pregnancy test anytime.
CLINIC: You can do that without an appointment.
CLINIC: But if you want to go further than that, then you have to see the doctor.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, is it all right if my boyfriend brings me?
CLINIC: That’s your choice.
CALLER: Does it cost anything for the —
CALLER: Does it cost anything for the exam or anything?
CLINIC: Yes, it does. But everything’s done on a sliding scale here. And if you’re a student, there’s a special rate. But, yes, there is a charge.
CALLER: What if like — my boyfriend’s the one that’s going to be paying for it, and he’s an honor student. Like, he’s already graduated.
CLINIC: Well, that — no, he’d be paying for you though.
CLINIC: Everything’s based on you.
CLINIC: And if you had a full exam or everything, it would probably be about $60. But if you just come in for the pregnancy test, about $8 or $10.
CALLER: Okay. Well, my other question is, my friend told me that you guys have to know all about my boyfriend before I can get anything done.
CLINIC: There’s nothing we have to know to about him.
CALLER: She said that you guys have to know that he’s like 22 and stuff.
CLINIC: That’s none of our concern.
CLINIC: No. This whole thing is based on you, and you alone– your history, your life, your decision.
CALLER: All right. So no one has to be told anything?
CLINIC: No. What he finds out is from you.
CLINIC: No, we won’t discuss it with him.
CALLER: You won’t tell anybody at all?
CALLER: Okay. Well, if like after the pregnancy test there, if I’m not pregnant, and I can have birth control?
CLINIC: Yeah, sure. We’ll discuss that with you. You’ll get counseling here from the nurses.
CALLER: Is it all right if I call you back after I talk to him?
CLINIC: Yes, you can.
CALLER: To see if he has any questions or anything.
CLINIC: If you can, come in tomorrow, and we’ll do a pregnancy test. And we’ll counsel you then too.
CALLER: Okay. Could I call you back today or anything?
CLINIC: Yes, you can.
CALLER: What was your name?
CLINIC: Well, I’m Barbara. And I’m going to be busy probably with the doctor. We have a clinic.
CALLER: Oh, all right.
CLINIC: So one of the nurses, somebody will pick up.
CALLER: Okay. Thanks.
CLINIC: All right. Bye bye.
