Lila Rose has embarrassed Planned Parenthood multiple times in multiple states. She’s pretended to be a minor impregnated by an older man, and Planned Parenthood has covered it up multiple times. Planned Parenthood has tried to defend themselves, tried to argue entrapment, has fired employees, and probably wishes the whole thing would just go away. The biggest problem with Lila Rose’s investigations of Planned Parenthood is that, if this happens to a girl who is just playacting, how many times has it happened to an actual victim of sexual abuse?
From Cincinnati, Ohio, we get a story of just that.
A Warren County woman sued Planned Parenthood Friday, accusing its staff of ignoring training and procedures by not reporting her suspected sex abuse when she was a minor, resulting in her being sexually abused for an additional 1½ years.
… The suit accused Planned Parenthood and five of its employees of ignoring obvious signs of suspected sexual abuse instead of reporting them as Ohio law requires.
… The woman was sexually assaulted from age 13 through age 17 by her biological father, and became pregnant by him, the suit alleges.
She went to the Mount Auburn facility of Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in November 2004 to have an abortion. When questioned by Planned Parenthood employees, the girl told them “that she had been forced to do things that she did not want to do,” the suit alleges.
That statement, Hurley said, should have caused Planned Parenthood employees to alert law enforcement officials about suspected sex abuse against a minor.
The father was arrested 1½ years after her Planned Parenthood experience, Hurley said, when the girl’s future college basketball coach became suspicious and reported suspected abuse.
The father was convicted of sexual battery and sexual touching and sentenced in 2006 to five years in prison.
How much longer will the country look the other way? I won’t hesitate to say that Planned Parenthood is an evil organization. Even if you’re pro-choice, who sees abortion as something so positive and wonderful that you’d go to these lengths to manipulate women into getting them? If abortion is to be legal, shouldn’t it at least be a last stop, the final option? For Planned Parenthood, they’ve got such a bloodlust for abortion that they’ll apparently do anything to perform them (it’s apparently a pretty lucrative profession), including break the law, cover up sexual abuse of minors, and manipulate young women. Where do we draw the line? When do we say enough? How many times do we have to see these abuses from Planned Parenthood before we demand an investigation?
There needs to be a nationwide investigation of Planned Parenthood. We’re seeing over and over again a willful disobedience of the law, at the apparent expense of young girls across the country. (And this isn’t even touching in the racist eugenics the Planned Parenthood was founded upon, and still practices.)
The sad thing is that, given our new extremist liberal President and his extremist liberal accomplices in Washington, Planned Parenthood is unlikely to be forced to atone for their sins. Barack Obama certainly won’t hold them accountable — he is, after all, the only senator to have voted against a bill to protect children who were born alive after a failed abortion and sees children as a “punishment”. Obama will never go against Planned Parenthood; the feminist lobby is too powerful and important for him.
Gotta capture the “women’s vote”, remember? And all American women care about is abortion on demand.
Sorry, but I disagree. This is too steep a price to pay. Even pro-choice Americans should be sickened to their stomachs at seeing this kind of continued behavior and law-breaking at Planned Parenthood. Have we no morals or ethics left? Have we become so cynical and jaded that stories like these no longer affect us at all? This is not the first time this has happened to real people at Planned Parenthood, and unless they are forced to stop, it won’t be the last. As I said, this is truly an evil organization, and we need to make our voices heard against it.
