Planned Parenthood Covers Up Sexual Assault But Claims It Treats Rape Victims “With Respect”

Every sexual assault survivor deserves to be treated with the utmost care and respect, a top Planned Parenthood employee told Black Entertainment Television (BET) this week.

While this absolutely is true, it does not reflect the abortion chain’s reputation with sexual assault victims. Planned Parenthood has been caught numerous times covering up sexual abuse and agreeing to help sex traffickers.

BET highlighted Planned Parenthood in an article that largely focused on a new dance program to help sexual assault survivors in Baltimore, Maryland.

Tyde-Courtney Edwards, a ballerina from Baltimore, recently began the program Ballet After Dark to help survivors like herself; several years ago, she was raped by a stranger at her apartment complex, according to the report. She said dance was one of the ways she began to heal from the horrific assault.

Edwards did become pregnant as a result of the attack and aborted her unborn baby. The story did not mention much more than that the abortion further deepened “the mental and physical impact of her assault.”

But the article did mention Planned Parenthood early on, claiming that it is a “vital” resource for victims of sexual assault.

According to the report:

“Every survivor of assault should be treated with respect,” said Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, chief medical officer for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “As Black women experience sexual assault at higher rates than other women, it’s imperative that resources are available in every community.” McDonald-Mosley insists communities must be equipped to properly handle cases of sexual assault and that facilities such as Planned Parenthood are vital to this process as they are more equipped to refer women to additional resources and handle their needs with what is needed most — care.

But the abortion chain’s actions and public statements do not match. Planned Parenthood has been caught numerous times ignoring signs of sexual abuse or even covering up the abuse.

SIGN THE PETITION! Congress Must De-Fund Planned Parenthood Immediately

In March 2015, Life Dynamics wrote for LifeNews.com about a California man who sexually abused two of his daughters and took the younger one to Planned Parenthood for two abortions in 2010. Court documents indicated that the abortion facility did not report the suspected abuse of the 13-year-old girl to authorities. The girl said she did not tell clinic staff that her father had impregnated her, but instead made up a story about having a boyfriend her own age.

The Life Dynamics criminal cases summaries include another young girl who was raped for an additional 1 ½ years after her 44-year-old abuser took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. In another case, a young victim was taken to Planned Parenthood for an abortion after her abuser sexually assaulted her at the age of 15.

And an Ohio Planned Parenthood faced a lawsuit for failing to report the sexual abuse of the young girl. The case involved a 22-year-old soccer coach who was convicted of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl on his team, LifeNews reported. According to reports, he statutorily raped the girl; and when she became pregnant, he took her to Planned Parenthood to abort their unborn baby.

In another case in Arizona, officials said a Planned Parenthood center failed to provide the proper report to authorities about a victim of a young man accused of being a serial rapist. Planned Parenthood failed to report the rape, and the young man allegedly raped 18 or more teenage girls before he was caught, according to authorities.

The abuse extends to sex trafficking victims as well. In 2011, a Live Action investigation uncovered wide-spread willingness among Planned Parenthood employees to help sex traffickers abuse young teens.

The undercover sting caused public outcry, and the abortion chain promised to retrain its staff about identifying sex trafficking victims and abuse. However, a former abortion clinic worker said Planned Parenthood did not fulfill its promise to the public, and trained its employees on how to spot undercover investigators instead.
