According to the Abortion In Washington Blog:
A couple of months ago there was news coverage of a story from Bellingham, Washington, in which the local Planned Parenthood (PP) abortion mill was accused of covering up the rape of an 10 year old Hispanic girl.
What no-one disputes is that PP Bellingham murdered this little girl’s unborn baby.
But new police records obtained by this blog reveal a shocking discovery: when the Whatcom County Sheriff contacted the Bellingham Planned Parenthood in order to collect evidence in the child rape case, the abortion clinic representative told the police that they simply were going to break the law that required them to cooperate with the police.
The actual rape occurred in September 2012, when Luis Gonzalez-Jose, an illegal immigrant farm worker living in Everson, near Lynden, Washington, raped the then-11 year old daughter of the woman he was living with. The girl became pregnant and Mr. Gonzalez-Jose secretly took her to Planned Parenthood — where presumably all child rapists go to “clean up” their crimes — in nearby Bellingham to have the unborn baby killed. Mr. Gonzalez-Jose pretended to be the girl’s father, and told her to claim that her “14-year-old boyfriend” got her pregnant.
In Washington, having sex with a girl under 12 is statutory rape (rape of a child in the first degree) if the male is not married to her (!) and is more than 2 years older. To the surprise of many, Planned Parenthood seems to have complied with this part of the law, and reported the case to Child Protective Services, because the purported age difference here, though fabricated, was still illegal.
But Planned Parenthood still did the abortion, despite knowing that this girl clearly was in no position to provide informed consent and was not accompanied by a documented parent! The fact that coercion was very probably involved apparently didn’t slow them down one bit. (How often does a pregnant teenager come in for a voluntary abortion with just her father, and not her mother?) PP broke no Washington law by doing an abortion on a minor under coercion from her rapist, if you can believe that. And Attorney General Bob Ferguson loves it that way apparently.
While this much of the story has already gained some local publicity (and nationally in pro-life circles), what we can reveal for the first time is what happened when Deputy Alan Smith from the Whatcom County Sheriff’s office contacted PP in order to get a copy of their records in order to help prosecute the rapist.
The police record, authored by Deputy Smith, states the following:
“On the afternoon of 09 18 2012, I contacted Mt. Baker Planned Parenthood to obtain a copy of the records documenting ‘s treatment at their care (sic!) facility. I was referred to their records contact … Sherry who told me Planned Parenthood would not follow the mandated reported (sic) law as codified in RCW 26.44.030.12(b) and refused (to) provide ‘s medical records. I then advised Planned Parenthood that I would seek a court order for their records on .”
In other words, the woman working in the records department told the police officer that PP was going to knowingly and openly break the law, a law designed not to help prosecute them, but to help prosecute the perpetrator of a terrible sexual assault on a minor! In so doing she obstructed the investigation of a vicious crime.
There are numerous questions that need to be answered here:
Was this a one-time event, or is this routine behavior? The record doesn’t show Sherry consulting with her superiors or an attorney, but immediately “implementing” this shocking policy on her own.
Who told Sherry to talk to the police this way? (Note that if I was going to tell a police detective to take their law and shove it, I would probably not do it myself but rather tell them to talk to my supervisor or attorney. The fact that rank-and-file PP staff feel empowered to give the police the finger themselves raises all sorts of questions about how far and wide this goes.)
Assuming this is PP policy, does it hold true for the entire state? The country? Is there any reason to believe that PP Bellingham is the only affiliate doing this? That they came up with this on their own?
If they flout this law that they don’t like, how many other laws do they ignore because they don’t like them? Do they just pick and choose which laws they follow and which they do not? Are they completely above the law?
Most people who openly break laws suffer consequences; why don’t they? Who is protecting them? This woman seemed to act as if she had no fear of reprisal. And apparently she was right. Is there some arrangement or understanding between PP and “law enforcement”? We have made numerous repeated attempts to get Deputy Alan Smith to answer our questions about why PP suffered no consequences for breaking the law and obstructing justice but he has declined all offers to comment.
There are even more unanswered questions in this story. PP apparently reported the statutory rape to CPS voluntarily when they might have gotten away with it. But then, after doing the coerced abortion, they decided to violate the mandatory cooperation law right to the face of the police as noted above.
And in a further twist, the abortionist, a Dr. Katherine Dickinson, apparently took the initiative and called the police to tell them she still had the aborted baby she killed sitting in her freezer at work. And rather than the police coming to arrest this woman who just admitted to the police that she murdered a baby in cold blood, the police came by and collected the literally cold blood for a DNA sample, and thanked the murderer for her cooperation!
On top of all this, we can’t find evidence of a single pro-life politician in the state who wants to condemn the actions of PP or the police in this matter or call for changes.
Could Planned Parenthood’s abortionist be the same Katherine Dickinson accused by the State of Washington Medical Board after she killed an infant when she tried to used a vacuum extractor on the child?
Of course the type of non reporting of child sexual predeators discovered by the blog above is not the first one:
The pro-life organization, Life Dynamics, Inc., located in Denton, Texas, documented that mandatory reporting statutes which require healthcare workers to report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to the authorities are being ignored inside American abortion, Planned Parenthood and family planning centers.
According to Mark Crutcher, founder of Life Dynamics , “The abortion lobby is engaged in a pedophile protection racket and protecting pedophiles who rape underage girls. These abortion clinics receive money from the federal government. We are literally paying for the rape of our young daughters.”
Life Dynamics studied this issue by analyzing several hundred instances in which older men were convicted of sexual crimes against minor girls. In an alarming number of these cases, there was a point at which the victims were taken for birth control, pregnancy tests, STD treatments and abortions – usually by the perpetrator – with no mandatory reporting made by those who provided the service. In almost every case, the sexual abuse resumed afterward and, many times, it would go on for years.
“You have to remember what’s happening right there,” Crutcher said. “You have an adult in a state talking to what they perceived to be a 13-year-old child who was a victim of sexual abuse by an older man and telling that child to lie about his age in order to conceal the crime. If you’re a parent, especially if a father and you’re not outraged then you don’t have a pulse.”
To test this further, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which we called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.
“When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them,” said Crutcher.
Life Dynamics found out that the Bellingham Planned Parenthood was not interested in mandatory reporting all the way back in 2002:
This is what Planned Parenthood told a caller posing as a 13 year old child impregnated by her 21 year old boyfriend:
CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there?
Planned Parenthood: We don’t actually do them here at this clinic. We do pretermination services. So if you wanted to have an abortion, we could do the pre-exam for you. But they’re done over at our (unclear) clinic, now Baker Family Medicine.
CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, so I would come there for like a pregnancy test?
Planned Parenthood A pregnancy test, but there’s a full exam that happens before you have an ab — a termination of pregnancy. Pelvic exam to see how far along you are, a couple of STD screenings, and then there’s just a lot of information as well.
CALLER: Oh. Well, do you know, it’s just, the thing is, I’m going to be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents I was
getting an abortion. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is and they wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
Planned Parenthood: It doesn’t matter that you’re only 13. You can do this under your own steam in Washington if you’re only 13.
CALLER: Oh, really?
Planned Parenthood: Yeah. Yeah, so he doesn’t have to sign anything for you. You’re welcome to bring him with you of course, but. But, no, he doesn’t — because he’s not legally responsible for you because he’s not your parent. But you can be legally responsible for yourself for this healthcare situation.
