The Planned Parenthood abortion business today closed a center in Wisconsin that was caught covering up rape of a 13-year-old girl.
Today Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin closed its fifth clinic, which it says comes as a result of pro-life Governor Scott Walker signing legislation to revoke taxpayer funding of the abortion business.
But the news is meeting with cheers and elation from pro-life advocates working to protect women and unborn children from abortion.
“The closing of the Planned Parenthood clinic in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin is excellent news for the pregnant women seen there, for the most likely outcome of their visit to Planned Parenthood is an abortion referral,” Barb Lyons, executive director of Wisconsin Right to Life, told LifeNews. “As has occurred with the closing of other Planned Parenthood clinics, women seeking life-affirming health care services will be absorbed by other agencies.”
“It is disheartening that 36 years of essential health care benefiting more than 36,000 women and men in the Fond du Lac community would be stopped by those with a political agenda,” stated Tanya Atkinson, Executive Director for Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin said in a statement.
However, the statement makes no mention of the fact that Planned Parenthood in Fond du Lac was caught on tape advising a 13-year-old child how she can cover the fact that she was having sex with an adult man, a clear violation of state laws that require reporting the suspicion of child abuse.
The call was part of a2002 undercover investigation sting which, Life Dynamics conducted where they documented that abortion clinics associated with both Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation are, with very few exceptions, completely ignoring the mandatory reporting statutes.
Life Dynamics, has published a transcript of the conversation their undercover caller, who was posing as a 13-year-old child, had with this Planned Parenthood center.
The callertells the Fond du Lac Planned Parenthood staffer, who identified herself as “Sarah”, that she was having sex with a 22-year-old adult male.
The caller asks Sarah about pregnancy tests and how to receive an abortion if she is pregnant.
Planned Parenthood tells the caller that they do not perform abortions at that location but states that she can obtain an abortion at their Appleton, Planned Parenthood clinic and acknowledges several times that they are required to report any suspicion of sexual abuse – such as this child’s admission that an adult male may have impregnated her.

CALLER: The problem is I’ll be 14 in March, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell on my boyfriend because he’s 22.
CLINIC: Yeah. Yeah. You’re 13 now?
CLINIC: Holy cow. Ummmm. Yeah, that’s reportable.
Planned Parenthood then suggests that the caller purchase a home pregnancy test and if the test is negative she can go to Planned Parenthood for the birth control she will need to continue the sexual relationship with the man.
CALLER: Well, if I took a home pregnancy test, if it came out that I wasn’t pregnant, could I come in there and get birth control? Because I don’t want to have to go through all this again.
CLINIC: Yeah. If you’re negative, by all means come on in and get birth control pills.
CALLER: But you guys wouldn’t have to tell anybody that I was on birth control though?
CLINIC: No. We’re not allowed to.
CALLER: Well, would you have to tell about my boyfriend?
CLINIC: That I’m not quite sure of. That I’m not quite sure of. I’m not sure.
CALLER: So would it just be better not to say anything about my boyfriend to you guys?
CLINIC: Well, we know now (laughing).
At this point Planned Parenthood puts the caller on hold and appears to get advice from someone else inside the clinic. She returns:
CLINIC: Okay. Thanks for holding. You’re kind of in a sticky situation because you’re 13 and you’re sleeping with a 22-year-old.
CALLER: But we’re in love. We’re going to get married.
CLINIC: Right. And we’re not here to judge. But legally they would have to report that because it is technically statutory rape. Your pregnancy would be —
CALLER: I mean, he’s not raping me. We’re in love. We’re going to get married.
CLINIC: Right. But by the law, if anyone found out that you were — even if you were in love to the umpteenth degree, if the wrong person found out, it could be trouble. It could be trouble.
CALLER: But you’re not going to tell anybody now, are you?
CLINIC: Well, no.
Planned Parenthood then advises the underage caller how she can avoid anyone reporting this to authorities, by telling her that when she goes in to, “keep your mouth shut.”
Planned Parenthood’s biggest concern here is not that the child is being raped by a pedophile, but how she can prevent future pregnancies from this man.
CLINIC: But if you came in we would have to. But now that leaves you in a bind. Because if you’re pregnant and you go up to the AB clinic[Appleton, Planned Parenthood abortion clinic], then they’re going to know, you know what I’m saying? I mean, it’s great that you guys are in love, but technically because you are so young and he’s over 18 —
CALLER: Well, do you know if there’s any other place I could go?
CLINIC: Why don’t you take your home test first? Take your home test first before you get yourself really worried. Take your home test first. My suggestion would be if you’re negative, please get on the pill. Protect yourself.
CALLER: But where could I go for that?
CLINIC: My suggestion would be — you could go anywhere if you just kind of keep your mouth shut.
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: You know what I’m saying?
CALLER: Yeah. I’m just so scared. I don’t know.
CLINIC: I know. And it is scary. And if you were like 16 and he was 22, it would be a different story, but you’re 13. And like I said, we’re not here to judge you, and we will not. But, technically, that’s the law, and the nurses here do have to abide by that. So if you came in and they knew that you were sleeping with a 22-year-old man, they would have to report it.
Planned Parenthood finally tells the caller to take care of the pregnancy without revealing who impregnated her, “My suggestion would be, if you find out you’re pregnant just take care of it, how you have to take care of it. You’ve got the number to the AB clinic [abortion clinic]. Call the ladies. They’ll tell you about funding or what not and cost and all that good stuff. But I really wouldn’t advertise that you’re dating a 22-year-old.”
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics is outraged, “Don’t tell me these people were trying to protect this girl. This is outrageous. Not only should the legislature have removed public funding but it is an obscenity to have public funding to begin with. Facilities operated by Planned Parenthood are conducting a pedophile protection racket and we are being forced to pay for the rapes of our daughters.”
Crutcher urges every parent and concerned America to listen to the full tape of the call- which can be heard here.
This good new comes on the heels of massive drops in the number of abortions thanks to pro-life legislation Walker signed into law.
