Video Catches Planned Parenthood Covering Up Statutory Rape
(original posting from pro-life nurse Jill Stanek’s fear-instilling to the bad guys site)
ARLINGTON, VA, October 6, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Students for Life of America (SFLA) has released a video exposing two Planned Parenthood clinics in Winston-Salem and Charlotte, North Carolina covering up statutory rape of young girls.

In June of 2008, two college women volunteering for Students for Life of America entered two clinics in North Carolina posing as underage girls, 15 and 14, who just had unprotected sex with their mother’s live-in boyfriend who was in his 30s. Each girl told the clinic workers that he suggested she come get the morning the Morning After Pill. According to N.C. Gen. Statue 7B-301 and 7B-101, this information was enough to trigger North Carolina statutory rape reporting laws, obligating any person who learned of this story to report the crime to authorities.
In both visits, Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledged that what was happening to the girls was statutory rape and in one case even repeatedly admitted that they were required to report the incident.
However, after the visits, Students for Life of America filed North Carolina Public Records Requests to find out if the Planned Parenthood locations had reported the crimes. SFLA has obtained and posted documents, which show that the crimes were not reported to authorities in either Charlotte or Winston-Salem.

In addition to covering up the statutory rape of these young girls by failing to report, both Planned Parenthoods were willing to help them get on birth control without their parents’ knowledge, which would prolong the abuse while covering evidence. One staffer in Charlotte even said to the girl, “You can do it now,” and set an appointment for the minor to obtain birth control the following week.
Further, both clinics told the girls that anyone over the age of 18 could simply go to a drug store and buy the Morning After Pill for them, giving the girls’ rapists a tool to further cover their crime of rape.
SFLA’s Executive Director, Kristan Hawkins commented on the videos today saying, “These videos are simply shocking. That Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledged the girls were being raped and then did not report the crime is horrific. They allowed these girls to go home to their rapists and even confirmed that their rapists could get the Morning After Pill for them to cover their crimes.”
Tom McClusky, Vice President of Government Affairs for the Family Research Council, responded to the investigation, “As long as Planned Parenthood puts their fealty to abortion on demand above protecting young girls from statutory rapists then investigations such as the ones done by SFL will be needed.”

This is infuriating on so many levels I hardly know where to begin.
First of all, we’ve known for years that Planned Parenthood has an agenda. But that they would break laws set in place to protect minors is even worse.
Furthermore, they present this scenario of statutory rape as if it were something the girls wanted – or their own crime.
Now, in this particular incidence, the situations were fabricated. But what about those girls for whom it is real – sexual harrassment and abuse by someone who should be engaged in protecting them against these violations?
More and more, the radical feminists are presenting to girls the idea that they want what is a violation of their privacy and their safety, that they’ve invited it, that they are displaying false modesty –
Radical feminism, manifested by Planned Parenthood, is telling girls that their natural modesty and reserve is unnatural – that being the victim of a crime against their bodies is normal and even desirable.
This is obscene! It has to stop!
And it has to stop with us, who know better and who can tell young girls, wherever we have the opportunity, of their inestimable worth, of their right to be respected, of their right to have their natural reserve and desire not to be objectified honored.
