Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has responded to news that a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic worker in Arizona failed to report the rape of one of their patients.
According to a release published by the Arizona Pinal County Sheriff’s Department, on Tuesday, March 25th, 2014 a detective, assigned to the Persons Crimes Bureau, received a call from a citizen who reported Tyler Kost (age 18 from San Tan Valley and a student at Poston Butte High School) had sexually assaulted, sexually abused and molested five teenage girls in the San Tan Valley area.
Detectives immediately began their investigation and have now identified several alleged victims.
Nearly all of the potential victims are high school students, according to PCSO spokesman Sgt. Pat Ramirez. Sheriff’s investigators said they discovered one girl was 13 years old. The oldest girl is 17. Each encounter happened within a three-year period.
In addition, the Maricopa Monitor has reported that a girl who says she became pregnant after Kost raped her last year visited a Planned Parenthood clinic with her mother on New Year’s Eve.
According to the report, obtained by Life Dynamics and Life Talk News, the victim was 15 years old at the time of the alleged assault. According to the report, the person who accompanied the victim to Planned Parenthood told the counselor about the sexual assault during the visit.
The PCSO report states.
“[Redacted] became pregnant. She accompanied [Redacted] to her ultrasound on 12/31/13 and 01/04/14. These appointments were at the Planned Parenthood in [Redacted].
“[Redacted] disclosed the assault to a counselor at Planned Parenthood. The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter. The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.”
According to the AZCentral, If Planned Parenthood workers had reported the alleged assault in December, it could have jump-started a sheriff’s investigation…Reporting such assaults is required for Planned Parenthood, and a sheriff’s spokesman said investigators had shared the alleged failure to report with Planned Parenthood administrators and Arizona Department of Health Services officials…The pregnant teenager reportedly visited the clinic on Dec. 31 and again four days later.
Kost’s arrest came after a citizen tipped off a Pinal County sheriff’s detective assigned to the Persons Crimes Bureau.
According to the PCSO, one of the victims reported Kost threatened her, harassed her and told her to kill herself. She attempted to commit suicide and was hospitalized. While in the hospital she received a message from Kost, threatening that if she returned to school he would “make her life a living hell.” Due to the threats she was receiving, she never returned to school and moved out of state.
On Monday, April 28th, 2014, Tyler Kost was arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail for two counts of Sexual Assault and two counts of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor.
Then on Thursday, May 01, 2014, Tyler Kost was re-arrested and booked into the Pinal County Jail for the following offenses:
• 7 counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor (Dangerous Crime Against Children)
• 3 counts of Sexual Abuse (Dangerous Crime Against Children)
• 7 counts of Sexual Assault
• 7 counts of Sexual Conduct with a Minor
• 1 count of Sexual Abuse
Sheriff Paul Babeu stated, “Serial rapist Tyler Kost was a predator who threatened, harassed, stalked and then either forcibly sexually abused or sexually assaulted his victims…Kost is now behind bars where he can no longer continue to inflict pain on his victims.”
FAILURE TO REPORT SEXUAL ABUSE NOTHING NEW FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD
In a 2002 child predator investigation, Life Dynamics called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation.
The caller portrayed a 13-year-old girl who was pregnant by her 22-year-old boyfriend. Her story was that she wanted an abortion because she and her boyfriend did not want her parents to find out about the sexual relationship. In every call the age of the girl and her boyfriend were made perfectly clear. It was also made clear that the motivation for the abortion was to conceal this illicit sexual activity from the girl’s parents and the authorities. Additionally, our caller never said a single thing that might suggest that her parents would become abusive if they discovered her sexual activity.
Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to the 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. (Listen to actual audio tapes of the calls here)
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, Inc.
Life Dynamics president Mark Crutcher explains what they found, “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.”
During these calls it was not uncommon for the Planned Parenthood or National Abortion Federation representative to warn the Life Dynamics’ caller that if someone were to find out about this situation her boyfriend could go to jail. In those situations it was unmistakable that the caller was being instructed to be more careful about what information she gave out and to whom. It was also not uncommon for the employee to interrupt the caller when she started talking about her age or the age of her boyfriend. On those occasions the obvious indication was that the employee did not want to hear this information.
Sometimes the caller would be told that, technically speaking, the clinic was required to report this activity to the state but that if the caller would either lie about her age or just keep her mouth shut when she came in for her abortion, no one would ask any questions. Several times she was told that the facility had no interest in the ages of the parties involved or that they do not verify ages or check IDs and would accept whatever she told them at face value. One employee went so far as to tell her that if she came in with the cash she could be any age she wanted to be.
Perhaps even more disturbing is that Life Dynamics identified a willingness by these employees to facilitate ongoing criminal behavior. At some point, the caller would raise the possibility that she might not be pregnant and asked whether the clinic would help her get birth control. Over 90 percent agreed to supply her with birth control and thereby help her conceal this illegal relationship. This offer was made even by people who had earlier in the call correctly identified this situation as sexual abuse or statutory rape.
“In many of these instances, they told our caller that her adult boyfriend could come with her to pick up the birth control, and some even offered to let him pick it up without her,” explains Crutcher.
“In other words, even though they had evidence that a sexual crime was being committed against a 13-year-old child, they were not only willing to conspire with the perpetrator to cover it up but they offered to provide him the means by which he could continue the abuse,” Crutcher states.
When Life Dynamics completed their phone survey, one of the most alarming observations they made was about the manner in which these Planned Parenthood or abortion facilities handled these calls. From start to finish, the attitudes of the employees the caller talked to made it brutally obvious that this is an issue they deal with routinely. In fact, several of them even volunteered that they get calls like this all the time.
“In the final analysis, virtually every Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facility we contacted was willing to illegally conceal the sexual abuse of this 13-year-old girl, ” reports Crutcher.
Life Dynamics says that they are in the process of compiling shocking data for the second part to this investigation which will include horrific details from court cases where children were returned to their pedophile abusers after being taken to family planning clinics.
This new report will clearly show that the abuse Life Dynamics documented in 2002 continues to this day.
