Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has responded to a statement made by the Governor of Vermont calling Planned Parenthood’s work “extraordinary” despite the fact that Planned Parenthood has been exposed for covering the sexual abuse of minors impregnated by adult male predators.

Governor Pete Shumlin, along with several other candidates gathered at the Planned Parenthood of Vermont’s Administrative Offices where the Governor stated, “Vermont is unusual we should be blessed to live here with a planned parenthood that does extraordinary work and a legislature that will stand behind you.

Vermont Gov endorsed by Planned Parenthood

Vermont Governor Pete Shumlin was receiving an endorsement by Planned Parenthood when he made the statement.

In 2002, the pro-life group, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation sting where they documented that abortion clinics associated with both Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation are, with very few exceptions, completely ignoring the mandatory reporting statutes.

The caller portrayed a 13-year-old child impregnated by her 22-year-old adult male boyfriend. Her story to these clinics was that she wanted an abortion because she did not want her parents to discover their sexual relationship.

A Planned Parenthood located in Barre, Vermont, told Life Dynamics’ undercover caller that she could obtain confidential services from them and, “It doesn’t matter how old your partner is.”

CALLER: Okay. Well, I’ll be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But —
CLINIC: No.
CALLER: — my boyfriend’s 22. Is that all right?
CLINIC: No, no. You don’t have to tell your parents.
CALLER: Okay.
CLINIC: It doesn’t matter how old your partner is.

At a Planned Parenthood in Bennington, which no longer appears to be open, the young caller is told that they will not tell anyone about her boyfriend.

CALLER: Hi. Yeah. I was calling to see if you guys do abortions there.
CLINIC: No, we don’t.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you know of anyplace that does?
CLINIC: Yeah. They do them at our Rutland Center. They do them in Burlington and West Lebanon. And also there’s one or two private doctors that do them also.
CALLER: Okay. Well, do you have the number for the one in Burlington?
CLINIC: Okay. Just one sec. Burlington is 802-863-6326 or 6327.
CALLER: Okay. The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign whatever it is, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody about anything?
CLINIC: Well, probably if you’re only 14 I think you’ll have to come here for a pre-exam first and a sizing and a pregnancy test. And then you can set it up there. And right now I don’t think we have to notify your parents. I could get you in Thursday for that. Have you been here for anything before?

The caller, portraying a 13 year old child tells the Planned Parenthood operator that she will need to get her 22 year old boyfriend to take her and Planned Parenthood is fine with as long as she is able to pay them:

CALLER: Well, the only thing is, me and my boyfriend talked about all this, and we don’t want anybody to know about us.
CLINIC: Right.
CALLER: Would you have to tell anybody if he was paying for everything?
CLINIC: Okay. Yeah, that’s okay.
CALLER: Really?
CLINIC: As long as you can pay for it, that’s not a problem. So why don’t you check with him and let me know, and then we can set something up for Thursday.

The Brattleboro Planned Parenthood also said they would keep the relationship confidential.

CALLER: Well, I’d have to call my boyfriend to see, but I was really wondering also if like — well, my friend told me that since like I’ll be 14 next month that you guys would have to tell my parents, but my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No. In Vermont you don’t have to do that.
CALLER: Oh, okay…

Later in the call…

CALLER: Oh, okay. Well, it’s just me and my boyfriend were talking about all this, and we decided we don’t want a whole bunch of people to know about us.
CLINIC: You’re fine. Nobody — it’s a confidential.
CALLER: Well, he said that he was going to pay for everything, but would he have to sign anything if he was paying?
CLINIC: Well, it’s only within our system, so it’s not that — you know. In fact, you would have a free pregnancy test. There would be no charge.

After the caller tells the Hyde Park Planned Parenthood that her boyfriend is 22 years-old, Planned Parenthood warns the teen that she needs to be aware of what information she gives them, but that they won’t be able to guess his age by the way he looks.

CALLER: Well, if he was there — well, what should I do?
CLINIC: You just need to really be aware and you need to be aware of what information you’re giving out.
CALLER: Okay.
CLINIC: Okay?
CALLER: Well, would it be bad if he was there with me? Because he was going to pay for everything.
CLINIC: No, not if — I mean, we can’t guess someone’s age by the way they look.
CALLER: Okay.

The Rutland Planned Parenthood made it very clear to the caller that they would have to report the incident as statutory rape according to the law, but she also tells the caller, “ I’m giving you this information because that’s what the law is, and we’re not going to lie to you and say nothing about that when really there is a law that says if a man over a certain age is having sexual intercourse with a woman under a certain age, it’s against the law,” the clinic says.

This call proves that all the other Planned Parenthood facilities knew the law required them to file a report.

However, in Rutland, knowing that a 13-year-old is admitting to having sex with an adult man, they tell the caller that they will not report if all she needs is birth control.

CALLER: Okay. It’s just me and my boyfriend don’t want to have to worry about all this again.
CLINIC: Right.
CALLER: But would you have to tell anybody if I was on birth control though?
CLINIC: No.

After admitting the age of her boyfriend to the St Albans Planned Parenthood, the caller is told that they do not do abortions. However, even though the caller tells Planned Parenthood that her boyfriend is 22 years-old they say they won’t tell anyone if she comes in for a pregnancy test.

CALLER: Okay. Well, I would just rather go there. My friend told me to go to you guys. I’m going to be 14 next month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: That’s something you would discuss with them for this. We are confidential —
CALLER: Oh, okay.
CLINIC: — and we wouldn’t tell anybody.
CALLER: So if I came in there for a pregnancy test you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No.
