Planned Parenthood investigation suggests rape cover-up [Excerpts]
An undercover investigation of two abortion clinics in North Carolina has resulted in a call to action.
Two older girls posed as 14- and 15-year-olds and visited Planned Parenthood clinics in Charlotte and Winston-Salem. Kristan Hawkins of Students for Life explains what happened when the two visited the clinics. "They told the Planned Parenthood staffers that they had just had sex with their mother's live-in boyfriend who was in his 30s, and they said the man told them to come to Planned Parenthood and get on this 'morning-after pill.'"
"We got Planned Parenthood [personnel] on tape, in both cases, saying [that] what happened...is statutory rape and it is illegal," she relates. "However, they told them anyone over the age of 18, including [the] rapist, could go to [a drug store] and purchase the morning-after pill to cover up his crimes -- and both clinics were willing to get the girls on birth control."
According to Hawkins, the evidence is enough to trigger the North Carolina reporting law, but a check reveals that neither incident was reported. She laments that this is another example in which it has been established that abortion clinics are not fulfilling the law by reporting child molestation cases to authorities, as required by law.
