Planned Parenthood, worse than Penn State: President should order an investigation
August 26, 2012 7:00 PM / WAYNE LAUGESEN FOR THE Town Hall EDITORIAL BOARD

We take sexual abuse of children quite seriously in the United States, but only selectively.

When Americans learned that Penn State employees didn’t make use of evidence that assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky was having sex with children, we were collectively outraged. After Sandusky’s conviction on 45 counts of sexual abuse, the culture rightly wanted heads to roll. We demanded to know who knew what, when they knew it and why those people had not moved heaven and earth to stop the abuse.

Former FBI director Louis Freeh found that late head coach Joe Paterno and other university leaders “repeatedly concealed critical facts” about suspicions pertaining to Sandusky. Paterno’s statue was removed from campus. Ranking university officials, including the president, were fired. The NCAA fined Penn State $60 million and neutered the football program with a four-year postseason ban. Public outcry is so enormous that some say the very existence of Penn State is in question, as the Middle States Commission on Higher Education has threatened to pull the school’s accreditation.

When society learned that several Catholic bishops had covered up for child molesters, mostly decades prior, the church was sued out of more than $3 billion. The costs keep rising, with some suits that involve cases so old the alleged victims and defendants are dead.

Most would agree that all of this is good. No civilized society tolerates cover-ups of sexual abuse of children.

Yet our federal government pays more than $1 million a day to Planned Parenthood, which probably covers up more sexual abuse of children than any other institution in the United States. Evidence is overwhelming.

In 2002, an organization called Life Dynamics launched a sophisticated sting operation that employed tactics similar to those used by Dateline NBC’s “To Catch a Predator” series. The organization hired an actor/investigator who completed and recorded calls to 813 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation abortion clinics in the United States. Hear the calls at www.ChildPredator.com.

In Colorado and all other states, workers in medical facilities are required to report evidence of sexual abuse of minors.

The caller told intake workers she was a 13-year-old who had been impregnated by a 22-year-old — a sexual relationship forbidden in all states. She asked if they would tell anyone about the boyfriend and her pregnancy. In 91 percent of calls, abortion workers agreed to conceal the relationship. In a substantial number of those, abortion workers coached the girl on helping them to cover up rape.

In a typical call, an abortion clinic intake worker tells the girl: “I mean, you know, I’m not supposed to be telling you this, but there’s no way that I can know for a fact that who you bring in here is not your mom or dad.”

The girl/investigator called back and said: “I was talking to my boyfriend, and I told him what you said about getting someone to come in that was old enough to look like my dad.”
Abortion worker: “Yes, yes, yes.”

Girl: “Well, he’s got an uncle who is 50 who said he would do it.”

Abortion worker: “Well, as long as he doesn’t tell me he’s not your father, then we’re alright.”

As a young UCLA student, Lila Rose launched multiple stings in which she posed as an underage girl who was impregnated by an adult. She recorded abortion workers coaching her about protecting the predator. Since graduating, Rose has made a full-time career of catching and recording Planned Parenthood workers willing to actively cover up statutory rape.
Ohio attorney Brian Hurley represents two clients who sued Planned Parenthood for neglecting state laws that may have resulted in investigations of their rapists. One case involved a 13-year-old girl who was raped by her adult soccer coach, John Haller. He impregnated the girl and took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. The clinic declined to report evidence of rape, the girl’s parents sued, and a judge ruled against Planned Parenthood in 2010.

An ongoing case involves an adult who was repeatedly raped by her father, who eventually went to prison. She claims Planned Parenthood declined to contact authorities, even after she told them her father routinely forced her to have sex.

President Obama, instruct the Justice Department to investigate Planned Parenthood. That institution has no more business than Penn State covering up sexual abuse of children. —
That’s our view, so what’s yours?

Calvary Chapel founder upsets pro-lifers with his description of children as a liability; last year advises a woman to have an abortion

Posted in Abortion, Children, Church with tags , , , , , , on May 8, 2012 by saynsumthn

Last Year, Pastor Chuck Smith advised a woman who called The Pastor’s Perspective to have an abortion. This year, he says children are a “liability”

California Pastor Wrongly Calls Children a Liability, Endorses Strong Birth Control

Radio co-host mocks Natural Family Planning

Cost Mesa, CA — Pastor Chuck Smith, the patriarch of Calvary Chapel, has once again disappointed Christians by handing out extra-biblical advice claiming that children are a liability and that Christians should use birth control.

“We are deeply disturbed by this latest gaffe by Pastor Chuck Smith. The Bible clearly teaches Christians that children are a blessing, a reward, a joy, and a gift. Grandchildren are a crown to the aged. The Bible nowhere mentions children as a liability,” said Troy Newman, President of Pro-Life Nation. “Smith’s thinking is of the kind that has given us eugenics, abortion, and other human rights abuses.”

The statements came on the radio program “Pastor’s Perspective,” which aired Monday, April 30, 2012, after a caller named Sophia asked the following question: “I have a question in regards to Christians and contraception. Should we be engaged in taking contraception?”

Pastor Smith indeed recommended that Christians use contraception to control family size and went on to encourage artificial birth control because of the high cost of raising children and because they do not produce any financial benefit to the family.

In addition to advocating for artificial birth control, Smith’s co-host, Don Stewart, espoused the false notion that the world is over populated and offended many Christians with strong convictions about birth control by openly mocking natural family planning methods. “Whatcha call people who use that? You call them ‘parents’ because that never seemed to work there.”

Smith stated:

You know it used to be that a lot of children were assets. A child coming into the home was an asset because it was an agrarian society and you all had your own farms and the more children, the more help you had on the farm, and all. But, you know, as time when on and we became really a – no longer an agrarian society, but, you know, one that was really sort of dependent upon manufacturing, and so forth, children no longer became an asset, but they became a liability and I think that when you figure now how much it costs to raise a child through high school and all, a lot of people, you know, they just say, “Well, who needs them?” You know, because it does just cost a huge amount of money to clothe them and feed them and all when they’re not really producing or are productive at bringing back into the family, you know, financial assets and so forth, and thus they are a liability, rather than an asset today.

Smith’s answer reflected a Malthusian philosophy and utilitarianism, rather than Biblical Christianity. Malthusianism is a philosophy that advocates population control through artificial contraception as a preventative for poverty and environmental harm. Utilitarianism is a theory of pragmatic ethics that teaches things – and people — have value only as long as they are useful. Smith blends both philosophies by indicating that if children cannot contribute financially, then they become a liability whose birth should be prevented.

This is consistent with comments made by Smith on the same radio program on Feb 8, 2011, where he advocated for the abortion of conjoined twins.

“It’s awfully hard to actually suggest abortion,” said Smith. “But, you know, I’m sure that, uh, in a case like this where the life expectancy is just, you know, is so bleak, and all, that I’m sure that the Lord would not condemn her if she went ahead and had an abortion at this early stage of the development of the fetus.”

Certainly if we abandon the doctrine that man is the image bearer of God, then destroying those who cannot contribute to society becomes easy. However, if we accept the doctrine that man is made in the image of God, then destroying human life becomes not only a crime, but an act of war against the God whose image we all bear.

It is the Christian way to put the lives of others above our own. It is the Christian way to love one another – faults and all – just as Christ loves us and gave Himself for us. That is the pattern that should guide our actions as Christians.

“Because innocent lives are at stake, we felt compelled to speak out to correct this erroneous teaching from Pastor Smith lest families deny themselves the blessings of children, or worse, take the lives of innocent children in the womb wrongly thinking they have the blessing of God. We pray for Pastor Smith that wisdom from God, and not humanist philosophies, would be the basis of his speech, and that if he will not better consider Biblical teachings on life and children, that he would abstain from publicly discussing such issues,” said Newman.

Exerts:

Pimp: And, how is the best way should they could go about it?

Planned Parenthood Supervisor/Practitioner: They just show up, and set up an appointment. Do they have insurance?

Pimp: They don’t have insurance, some don’t even speak that good of English ‘cause you know, they just got here.

Planned Parenthood Supervisor/Practitioner: Right. So we have an interpretation phone, so if they don’t speak Spanish that’s not a problem. I mean if they don’t speak English that’s not a problem cause we can have an interpreter – ……

Prostitute: They just came over, they’re workin’ with us, and we’re helpin’ them out –

Planned Parenthood Staffer: Mhm

Prostitute: Just keeping them safe.

Pimp: Could we even sign off as guardians? Could we even sign off as a guardian, is that even possible?

Planned Parenthood Staffer: If you were writing the support letter, yeah, you could say –

Prostitute: Oh good

Planned Parenthood Staffer: that you take care of them, you support them.

Pimp: Cool!

Planned Parenthood Staffer: But nothing here, like, our patients, we don’t ask for guardian’s signature. Everything is the patient. Like a thirteen-year-old could come in and get the services she needed, by herself.

Pimp: So, how would you recommend for them best to do it? Cause we don’t want them getting confused or what not, and it’s kind of a sensitive subject, so we don’t want you know, them saying the wrong thing, you know getting refused or turned away, so how would you suggest they go about you know being able to get the access even in spite of what they do, you know?

Planned Parenthood Staffer: Yeah, like, like I said everything’s confidential, they don’t have to tell anybody what it is that they do when they make the an appointment, it’s just gonna be between them and the Physician they see.

Planned Parenthood’s list of “Bad Apples” may not be so “isolated” !

News of the recent firing of a Planned Parenthood manager in New Jersey, after being caught on tape advising a man posing as a sex trafficker on how to get treatment for underage girls, makes it appear that the organization only has one “bad apple” in their network of abortion clinics. The National Planned Parenthood Federation acted swiftly to put out the fires and try and establish that they had only “One bad apple” and it was taken care of.

We were profoundly shocked when we viewed the videotape,” said Phyllis Kinsler, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Central New Jersey. The employee, she said, had behaved in a “repugnant manner that is inconsistent with our standards of care and is completely unacceptable.”

In the tape, released by the anti-abortion activist group Live Action, an employee identified as Amy Woodruff, an office manager, tells the man and his female companion to encourage 14-year-old girls to say they’re older to avoid triggering additional reporting requirements.

For the most part, we want as little information as possible,” she said in the video. Asked whether 14-year-olds could get abortions at the clinic, Woodruff suggested the man take the girls to another clinic where “their protocols are not as strict as ours.”

___________
Sound Familiar, it should, in 2008, after the same group of undercover journalists stung Planned Parenthood an Indiana Planned Parenthood was forced to suspend a counselor shown advising what she thought was a 13-year-old girl to cross state lines for an abortion without informing her parents — and without the clinic following the law to notify authorities of sexual abuse of a minor:

Betty Cockrum spoke for the first time publicly about the recent controversy telling Indy Channel’s 6News’ Derrik Thomas that two employees and a volunteer seen in the videos no longer work for the agency and that mandatory training has been ordered for all employees.I can’t tell you how clear we are, up, down and sideways, that this is an incredibly important element that has to be reported and we’re consistent about it,” she said. ( **YEAH – SURE THEY ARE **)

Betty Cockrum, Planned Parenthood of Indiana’s president and CEO, issued a statement saying the assistant violated the group’s policies on reporting abuse. (Really, just one “Bad Apple, huh?” )

Blaming the journalists Planned Parenthood laments, “While this video was altered and edited from its original form, it is clear the actions by the employee in question were unacceptable. A thorough internal review of this matter has taken place and the health center assistant shown in the video is no longer employed by PPIN,” the statement said. (So here we go, caught red handed, they throw another employee under the bus, that is “One bad Apple” …or is that now Two, I can’t keep count !)

Planned Parenthood of Indiana did not identify the aide.

State law requires sexual acts between an adult and a child younger than 14 to be reported to police or child welfare officials. In the December 2008 videos, the Mona Lisa Project exposed two Planned Parenthood clinics in Indiana. As public scrutiny mounted, both clinics either fired or suspended employees, and state prosecutors launched investigations into Planned Parenthood of Indiana.

But wait…it continues. Two more Planned Parenthood clinics in Phoenix, AZ were caught on tape concealing statutory rape. In a developing multi-state child abuse scandal, these are a continuation of Planned Parenthood clinics implicated. Employees deliberately neglect their legal obligations to report statutory rape, and instead offer secret abortions. No word whether Planned Parenthood fired those bad apples or not.

And in Alabama, a Planned Parenthood counselor in Birmingham was caught on hidden camera telling an alleged 14-year-old statutory rape victim that the clinic “does sometimes bend the rules a little bit” rather than report sexual abuse to state authorities. This is the seventh Planned Parenthood clinic implicated in a multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate and unlawful suppression of evidence of statutory rape.

After telling the counselor that her “boyfriend” is 31, Rose asks, “Is it a problem about my boyfriend?” The counselor, identified as “Tanisha” in the video, responds, “As long as you consented to having sex with him, there’s nothing we can truly do about that.” Rose then says that her boyfriend “said he could get in big trouble,” and Tanisha acknowledges that “he could, especially if your parents find out that he’s 31.” She then tells Rose that the clinic manager, OB/GYN Dr. Desiree Bates, “sometimes does bend the rules a little bit” and states that “whatever you tell us stays within these walls” and “we can’t disclose any information to anybody.”

However, Alabama code 26-14-3 requires health professionals to disclose suspected cases of sexual abuse to state officials immediately.

When to ‘bend the rules a little‘ means hiding a case of statutory rape from Child Protective Services and looking for ways around the parental consent requirement, Planned Parenthood becomes directly responsible for ensuring that statutory rapists can continue their abuse of young girls,” Rose said.

(I must ask Planned Parenthood, what happened to THAT Bad Apple? )

The Associated Press has reported that Planned Parenthood of Birmingham has been placed on probation, not by Planned Parenthood but by state health officials.

From the article, Alabama health officials have put the Bir­mingham clinic of Planned Parenthood of Alabama on a year-long probation after an inspection revealed multiple problems, in­cluding not adequately verifying parental consent from minors getting abortions and not reporting a potential case of child sexual abuse.

Planned Parenthood of Alabama en­tered into an agreement with the health department promising to deliver, a plan to correct its deficiencies.

And here’s is the apology, right on target….”We take concerns about the quality of our services seriously, and we have en­tered into an agreement with the state out­lining steps we will take to assure that all of the state’s concerns are addressed,” said Felicia Brown-Williams, spokeswo­man for Planned Parenthood of Alabama.

Jumping back to 2011, after this undercover sting video was released in New York, Planned Parenthood announced they would be “Retraining staff”

According to Yahoo News – Health care provider Planned Parenthood will retrain employees who deal with patients in how to report potential risks to minors, following the release of secretly recorded videotapes by an anti-abortion group that alleges they show clinic staff counseling a man posing as a pimp for underage prostitutes.

Planned Parenthood, said it was changing its disciplinary policy to termination in all proved cases in which there has been a failure to report. The policy previously included punishments such as leave without pay and retraining. With the announcement, Planned Parenthood hoped to blunt the public impact of what it called a misleading ( THERE IT IS – THE PATTERN OF BLAME THE JOURNALISTS***) string of covertly taped videos being released by Live Action, an anti-abortion group. On the videotapes, Planned Parenthood employees are heard telling a man who says he runs a “sex business” how to get medical care and abortions for under-age prostitutes.

Federation spokesman Stuart Schear emphasized that the training was not new ( WOW – NOT NEW….I GUESS THE TRAINING MUST HAVE BEEN WORKING???) but was meant as a refresher. He said training will follow state laws where affiliates have clinics.

We want to be crystal clear for those millions of people who come to us and trust us that we will never put a minor at risk,” he said.

But…is this isolated…and why does Planned Parenthood keep getting caught covering for perverts, sexual abusers and pimps? Does Planned Parenthood “care about minors?”

NO – It is NOT isolated. In fact, Several years ago, Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics spent months preparing an exhaustive report on the questionable activities Planned Parenthood pursues. He also created a special web site for the express purpose of exposing the deceit. At ChildPredators.com, you can listen to taped conversations involving Planned Parenthood counselors. The response to the tapes and the report, which became public in early 2002, was silence from most legislators and the vast majority of the media and of course Planned Parenthood. Just listen to the news report below:

Below is the news footage from the Life Dynamics investigation:

In 2008, Live Action released the recording of a call to an Idaho Planned Parenthood Director of Development in which the caller pretended to be a racist donor who wanted to reduce the number of black people. The Planned Parenthood employee said she was “excited” to take the donation.

After the video was released, Planned Parenthood of Idaho officials “fixed” the bad press they were receiving for the racist donations, by issuing an apology for what they called an employee’s “serious mistake” in encouraging a donation aimed at aborting black babies.

They also criticized the group, for trying to discredit Planned Parenthood employees in seven states in a series of tape-recorded phone calls last summer. ( I can see a pattern developing: apologize, say it is one bad apple and blame the journalists? )

The call to Idaho came to Autumn Kersey, vice president of development and marketing for Planned Parenthood of Idaho.

On the recording an actor portraying a donor said he wanted his money used to eliminate black unborn children because “the less black kids out there the better.

Kersey laughed nervously and said: “Understandable, understandable. … Excuse my hesitation, this is the first time I’ve had a donor call and make this kind of request, so I’m excited and want to make sure I don’t leave anything out.”

In like manner to the other “Incidents”, Planned Parenthood of Idaho “firmly and unequivocally” denounced racial bias, admitted making a mistake and said the group had taken corrective action.

Sounding a bit familiar and true to the pattern, Planned Parenthood stated, “A fundraising employee violated the organization’s principles and practices when she appeared to be willing to accept a racially motivated donation,” said CEO Rebecca Poedy in a written statement. “We apologize for the manner in which this offensive call was handled. We take full responsibility for the actions of the fundraising staff member who created the impression that racism of any form would be tolerated at Planned Parenthood. We took swift action to ensure that each of our employees understands their responsibility to communicate clearly with donors about the fact that we believe in helping all individuals, regardless of gender, race, or sexual orientation, make informed decisions about their reproductive health care.”

The next day The Idaho Statement granted Planned Parenthood adequate space to make a further statement, ” Planned Parenthood adamantly rejects racist policies or practices…That’s why it is so disturbing to hear a secretly tapes conversation between a racist caller and a Planned Parenthood staff member which leaves the erroneous impression that the organization accepts racist donations…In Idaho an employee made a serious mistake when she appeared to be complicit in the donor’s racist request.” [WAIT FOR IT…] ” Planned Parenthood took swift corrective action and instituted a proactive initiative to help the staff respond to people who call with offensive agenda.”

Then the Planned Parenthood spokesman continued, and this is where they make the all to often heard “Isolated Incident” claim, “This employee had an exemplary record with PPI and feels absolutely awful. The statements in the recording absolutely do not represent how we or the employee feel. However, this is a serious matter and the employee has been suspended pending further investigation.”

And then in typical pattern Planned Parenthood blames the journalists,”We decry these smear tactics, which work against the public good and even give a bad name to those who oppose us through legitimate means. There is a continuum of behavior by extremists ranging from unethical deception to outright violence to use any means necessary to attack Planned Parenthood, and this behavior should not be rewarded. “

But…is it true that this was an “Isolated Incident”? Well…would Planned Parenthood lie?

Let look back as far as the 1980’s when, Faye Wattelton, a former President of Planned Parenthood herself admitted that Planned Parenthood takes RACIST DONATIONS. It was an admission she made in an interview on CNN.

Go to 52 seconds of this segment of the powerful documentary Maafa21 and listen to Wattleton admit that Planned Parenthood knowingly takes racist donations: Be sure to listen further to what another Planned Parenthood President admitted to (Alan Guttmacher) :

Couple this with the admission by Planned Parenthood’s founder: Margaret Sanger –that she was invited over a dozen times to speak to the racist KLAN after giving at least one speech to them. She admitted this in her autobiography and to this day, Planned Parenthood has named their top award the “Margaret Sanger Award.”
But…what do Planned Parenthood’s employees have to say about their alleged “racism”, let’s look at the case below:

Case of LaMarilyn FADEYI v.PLANNED PARENTHOOD ASSOCIATION OF LUBBOCK, INC.,

Defendant Fadeyi is a black female who was employed by Planned Parenthood for seven years. She alleges that Planned Parenthood engaged in various acts of racial discrimination against her during the course of her employment, ranging from discriminatory scheduling and distribution of office resources to the executive director’s giving her and another black employee an application for membership in the Ku Klux Klan. Fadeyi filed complaints with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Texas Commission on Human Rights, but both dismissed her complaints for lack of jurisdiction because Planned Parenthood had fewer than 15 employees at all relevant times. Planned Parenthood fired Fadeyi two working days after receiving notification that the EEOC did not have jurisdiction to entertain her complaints.

Fadeyi then brought suit in district court under § 1981, alleging racial discrimination in her employment and termination. Planned Parenthood filed a motion for summary judgment, arguing that Fadeyi’s claim should fail because she could not show the existence of a contract, an essential element in a § 1981 action. The district court agreed and granted Planned Parenthood’s motion. Fadeyi timely filed this appeal.

Congress, through the Civil Rights Act of 1991, amended § 1981 to add a broad definition of the phrase “make and enforce contracts,” which includes “the making, performance, modification, and termination of contracts, and the enjoyment of all benefits, privileges, terms, and conditions of the contractual relationship.”. Fadeyi argued that Congress intended to reach the very conduct that plagued her at Planned Parenthood during her employment and in her termination.

The district court, however, dismissed Fadeyi’s complaint, concluding that, as an at-will employee, Fadeyi had no “contract” of employment on which to base a claim under § 1981. Under well-established Texas law, the employer may, absent a specific agreement to the contrary, terminate an employee for good cause, bad cause, or no cause at all.

The court ruled against Planned Parenthood and ordered the case a :REVERSED AND REMANDED. They wrote, “We therefore conclude that the district court erred in granting summary judgment to Planned Parenthood solely on the basis that Fadeyi had no contract on which her § 1981 claims could rest. Accordingly, we reverse the judgment of the district court and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.

Another Lawsuit [PDF] against the Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area brought by a PP/CA nursed who was fired by PP/CA Associate Medical director Darryn Dunbar. The nurse accuses Dunbar of anti-Semitism and of trying to increase his power and status at PPCA eliminating persons connected to Dr. Pelta.

Among her complaints, the nurse charges that PP failed to ensure the presence of an anesthesiologist, licensed physician or registered nurse in or around the recovery room when sedation patients are present, and that unlicensed employees were performing ultrasounds.

Dunbar fired Chesis on April 10, 2007. Her lawsuit included accusations and counter accusations. Mind you, these were alleged by PP employees, not pro-lifers:

1). “… changing dates on ultrasounds so that patients would have to pay a higher price for abortion services. …”
2). “… failure to ensure the presence of an anesthesiologist, licensed physician or registered nurse in or around the recovery room when sedation patients are present. …”
3). “… unlicensed employees with no medical training were performing improper ultrasounds and were making ultrasound diagnoses. …”
4). “… prescrib[ing] Depo-Provera to a patient with a history of depression” with the counter claim that “prescribing of Depo-Provera to patients with depressive orders is not prohibited. …”

Employees also sued Planned Parenthood/Chicago Area and PP/CA CEO Steve Tombley.

In one suit, Dr. Murray Pelta, O.B. Gyn, medical director at PP/CA for ten years, is suing Planned Parenthood and its CEO Steve Trombley for firing him in violation of his employment agreement.

In his Verified Complaint [PDF], Pelta states that he did favors for Trombley, like writing “discreet” medial prescriptions for Trombley’s personal use, without recording or reporting them.

Pelta listed the following revelation as the reason for his termination, a fitting term:

In January 2007, a pregnant former PP/CA board member and current PP/CA employee asked Dr. Pelta to perform a confidential abortion upon her. She stated that, for various reasons, she wanted to avoid disclosing her pregnancy to other PP/CA board members and employees.
Although Dr. Pelta initially advised her to go through proper channels, she persisted and, in large part because of her position as a former PP/CA board member and current PP/CA employee, Dr. Pelta finally relented.

The woman specifically requested that Dr. Pelta keep the procedure a secret and not make a PP/CA record of the abortion. Dr. Pelta had maintained such confidentiality for abortion services provided to other PP/CA board members that, at their request, he kept confidential and did not record.

In light of these factors, Dr. Pelta agreed to the woman’s request. On or about Jan. 19, 2007, Dr. Pelta successfully performed the procedure without complications. He did not charge the woman, nor did he receive any benefit for performing the abortion.

In Washington, D.C., the family of 13-year-old Shantese Butler filed a $50 million suit against Planned Parenthood after a botched abortion left the girl permanently injured and infertile. The abortion involved a teenager who was a victim of rape and the abortion left her with significant medical problems.

Emma Jean Butler took her daughter Shantese Butler to Planned Parenthood Metropolitan on September 7, 2006 for an abortion after Shantese was a victim of sexual assault.

According to the lawsuit, Shantese Butler sustained significant physical damage as a result of the abortion.

The abortion resulted in severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation, and a small bowel tear. As a result of the injuries, Butler will be unable to have biological children the rest of her life.Students for Life of America reports that Shantese was left with “severe abdominal bleeding, severe vaginal injury, severe injury to the cervix, significant uterine perforation and a small bowel tear.” In addition, parts of the unborn child were found inside Shantese’s abdomen.

In Nebraska, Planned Parenthood refused to disclose the terms of a settlement with another victim whose botched abortion resulted in a perforated uterus, massive blood loss, an emergency hysterectomy, permanent infertility, seizures, and lifelong pain and suffering. According to the suit obtained by Life News, the woman instructed the abortionist and his assistants to stop, but was told: “We can’t stop.” The Planned Parenthood employees held her down to complete the procedure.

And here is More I have dug up about Planned Parenthood’s “Bad Apples”:

• In an article by Rita Diller called: Missing Millions: which ran in the Washington Post, Diller’s investigations reveals that audits from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) investigating Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s (PPFA) show the organization, which gets billions in tax payer money, spent just $657.1 million between 2002 and 2008 from federal government grants and programs, but Planned Parenthood’s own annual reports show that it took in $2.3 billion from government grants and programs during the same time period. PPFA expenditures of federal money average just 32 % of its government income from 2002 through 2008. Diller asks, where are the Missing Millions? Okay- where are they…so far no one including our own US Government will force Planed Parenthood to answer that question. That’s your money and mine !

One Important Note – Regarding the undercover investigation showing how Planned Parenthood was willing to remove protection from girls admittedly in the “Sex Trade” when a pimp requested abortions and birth control information, they claimed that they were suspicious and went to the FBI . The group how did the investigation writes,Planned Parenthood wrote the FBI a letter a week AFTER our investigation, only after they realized that Live Action had conducted the sting. They say this themselves. As much as they may pretend, Planned Parenthood was not attempting to help send human traffickers to jail; they were attempting to pre-empt the release of Live Action’s footage.
If Planned Parenthood really cared about reporting potential sex traffickers to authorities, they would have called police while the pimp was in the clinic, or immediately after. Not wasting a minute. Planned Parenthood, where are the reports from the now SIX clinics we’ve released, that you immediately called the police?
Why did all your staffers, instead of refusing service or gathering information from the pimp about his sex ring to inform authorities, GIVE the pimp information about how to access the Planned Parenthood system for secret services?”

Advocate for education on Human Trafficking blasts Planned Parenthood says they have no idea of the hell on earth that the victims of sex-trafficking endure

After viewing the recent undercover videos released by the Journalist group: Live Action, exposing how Planned Parenthood covers for pimps who traffic in underage girls, an advocate for education on Human Trafficking had this scathing statement.

Dottie Laster has spent nearly a decade fighting daily in efforts to educate citizens and governmental agencies, has a Radio Show, “TRAFFICKED,” which is devoted to issues surrounding the victims of sex-trafficking, and tirelessly works with the victims to be able to restore their lives once the cycle of abuse has been stopped.

Here is the statement she gave on the Planned Parenthood scandal:

“No matter what your opinions on abortion are, in the United States we have strict laws, regulations, procedures and ethics that protect children from being sold in commercial sex. As a scholar of sociology, I have observed that it is not uncommon for organizations which are established to protect freedoms and rights grow, expand and develop into groups that fail to protect the individuals they were formed to serve. Daily, I see instances of law-enforcement, non- profit organizations, legal systems and others fail victims of human-trafficking. Precious windows of opportunity for escape lost or perhaps even worse, the organizations assist the traffickers whether knowingly or not.

After viewing the Planned Parenthood video my first thoughts were of the victims I have served over the last 8 years. Specifically the women and girls — their horrendous statements of rape, gang rapes, torture, branding, starvation, extortions, assault and their reports of repeated forced abortions and miscarriages due to the trauma they received. I have often wondered where these multiple abortions took place and how medical professionals had not seen the extensive trauma to their bodies, spirits and souls.

In this film the apathy for the victims from the Planned Parenthood manager is not uncommon. Her willingness to be helpful to the pimp about how to work the system and receive services to provide birth control, STD testing, and abortions to children in commercial sex was unfortunately was robotic in the face of atrocity. I hope she truly had no idea of the hell on earth that the victims of sex-trafficking endure and how her instructions to keep the children quiet, send them with a biased interpreter and to
avoid contact with the unpopular clinician who would be strict about sexually active youth. I trust she did not know how these instructions would affect the victims’ lives, human rights/civil liberties, and limit their futures. In addition I must hold hope she was not thinking of the families that loved the immigrant children she spoke of who would be devastated to learn what was being planned for their children in the United States.

We have societal myths surrounding the combination of sex and money which blind and fog the minds of people who could have helped the victims and prosecuted the traffickers. A recent example is Lawrence Taylor ‘s deal of no jail time after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors due to buying sex with a minor who he admittedly paid a pimp for sex acts with even though she had a black eye and had clearly been recently beaten and was only 16. There was also a case in Texas, where a 13 year old who was arrested for prostitution and the county prosecutor prosecuted her all the way to the Texas Supreme Court- Her 32 year old “boyfriend’ was never questioned. She had received two abortions before the age of 13 while under his supervision and she was mentally deficient, yet she endured only punishment from our justice system. One of my clients, was arrested at 16, for being in the US illegally due to the trafficking, after undergoing eight to nine abortions and one birth which resulted in death of the infant two days later; a child victim alleged her experience at a hospital where she went to ask for help due to the pain and trauma associated with being prostituted – she asked the doctor wrote a note to her pimp saying she should not have sex for a week and was sent back to him- just as the woman in the film suggested the pimp told her to make money above the waist.

I so wish people would not be seduced and their perspective fogged when they see adults putting children in commercial sex. All children in commercial sex are victims of trafficking according to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act and anyone who attempted or intended to participate/facilitate human trafficking activities could face prosecution under the TVPA-whether they completed the crime or not.

I hope that this organization and the individuals who assisted this pseudo- pimp will use this opportunity to train their staff about the laws and protections surrounding children in forced labor, the criminal penalties for anyone who assists in prosecuting children such as prostituting a minor 14 or under which could result in a federal life sentence. They could learn that commercial sex is anything exchanged of value for stripping, pornography or prostitution and learn how to identify victims of trafficking both children and adults and the procedures to effectively assist them.

No matter what medical procedure a person requests their right to privacy must be maintained through HIPPA laws and should not be shared with any pimp or trafficker- and any immigrant minor in the United States who is not accompanied by a parent or guardian must be protected and custody established. I see many training opportunities brought to light due to this video for Planned Parenthood and any organization who serves marginalized populations. The TVPA also has a clause that states any government contractor whose employees or sub- contractors or their dependents engage in human trafficking activities may lose all government funding. So I urge all organizations to address their policies and procedures immediately. The first effective action that any group can do is to recognize that ANY MINOR IN COMMERCIAL SEX IS A VICTIM OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING and that anyone putting a minor in stripping, pornography or prostitution is a trafficker- and should be treated as a criminal.

I hope in the future a film like this would demonstrate a staff displaying a fierce urgency to protect victims and children from forced labor and commercial sex.”

Planned Parenthood’s long history of covering for sexual abuse of children

A second videotape has been released showing a Planned Parenthood abortion business covering up an alleged sex trafficking ring. The first tape showed staffers in New Jersey engaged in the coverup and this one features a clinic in Virginia.

“Planned Parenthood’s problems go far beyond New Jersey. Our new video shows their Richmond clinic willing to aid and abet the sexual exploitation of minors and coaching a pimp about how girls as young as 14 – 15 could circumvent parental consent laws for secret abortions,” said Live Action President Lila Rose. “Watch the video – the clinic worker admits they do this ‘once or twice a month.’ Our investigations of 12 clinics in the past four years show a pattern of Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover-up the sexual abuse of minors and young women.”

The undercover investigation sponsored by the pro-life group Live Action features the same setup in this second video: a sex ring operator and one of his prostitutes visit the Richmond Planned Parenthood abortion center looking for information about how to obtain abortions for the minor girls they allegedly illegally brought to the United State.

One again, the sting operation has Planned Parenthood officials willing to bend over backwards to get abortions for the victimized girls and, in this case, bragging about how they can undermine the judicial bypass provision in the Virginia parental notification law to get a judge to approve the secret abortions on the sex slaves.

“But there are also ways, like judicial bypass, that we can get around that if you guys ever need it,” she says of how to get abortions for the 14 and 15-year-old girls they say are here illegally. “There’s a way to avoid that.”

The staffer, Kimberly, tells the undercover investigators, “we’re pretty good at handling, if someone, you know, doesn’t want someone else to know” and adds, “for someone who’s a minor that’s really good option. We do them probably once or twice a month here.”

“Judicial bypass,” the Planned Parenthood staffer says. “It’s um, if someone is a minor and they don’t want their parents to know they’re on their parents insurance — so an abortion would show up..”

“We’ve kinda got it all,” she brags in the January 12 footage, about what Planned Parenthood can do to help the sex traffickers. The staffer also advises the sex traffickers that they can get abortions later in pregnancy in Maryland and DC if they want the girls they manage to get them.

When the Planned Parenthood staffer is told that the couple manage girls who are sex workers and that, “we gotta keep them safe, ” the staffer appears unconcerned, responding, “Yeah, yeah, of course” and “we see people from every walk of life.”

“For awhile we were treating all the girls at Paper Moon,” a local strip club. “No judgment, no sharing of information, like, uh, nothing here.”

The staffer says the girls, when informed they are not here legally, are welcome to get information and STD testing at Planned Parenthood. She ends the meeting by giving the sex traffickers her card and not appearing to show any concern about their law-breaking activity or that she will report them to law enforcement authorities following their meeting.

In the first video (below), the pair of undercover journalists visit Planned Parenthood Central New Jersey’s abortion center in Perth Amboy and clinic manager Amy Woodruff, an LPN, warns the pimp and his prostitute to have their trafficked underage girls lie about their age to avoid mandatory reporting laws.

“Even if they lie, just say, ‘Oh he’s the same age as me, 15,’…it’s just that mainly 14 and under we have to, doesn’t matter if their partner’s the same age, younger, whatever, 14 and under we have to report,” Woodruff says. “Like on the paperwork there’s going to be a point that asks, uh, like are you sexually active, stuff like that … if they’re under a certain age… – you know, me and my other counselor, like for the most part we want as little information as possible – cause we don’t want to be involved…”

Woodruff also recommends how the pimp can get his prostitutes cheaper contraception by claiming they are “students.”

“If they’re minors, put down that they’re students. Yeah, just kind of play along that they’re students–we want to make it look as legit as possible,” Woodruff is caught saying in the videotape.

Woodruff also coaches the alleged sex traffickers on where to get an abortion that won’t be met with as much scrutiny, referring them to the New Jersey-based abortion business named Metropolitan Medical Association, where she says “their protocols aren’t as strict as ours and they don’t get audited the same way that we do.”

The Planned Parenthood official also coaches the alleged sex traffickers on how soon they can put underage female sex slaves back to work. The prostitute in the video asks how long after the abortion until the girls can have sex again, and, when Woodruff says “minimum of 2 weeks,” she asks what sex acts the girls could still do to make money.

“Waist up, or just be that extra action walking by” to advertise sex to potential clients, Woodruff advises.

After claims from Planned Parenthood that the videos were a HOAX, they fired the nurse in the first video.

But…why does Planned Parenthood keep getting caught covering for perverts, sexual abusers and pimps? Several years ago, Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics spent months preparing an exhaustive report on the questionable activities Planned Parenthood pursues. He also created a special web site for the express purpose of exposing the deceit. At ChildPredators.com, you can listen to taped conversations involving Planned Parenthood counselors. There is a well-documented report of his findings online as well. The response to the tapes and the report, which became public in early 2002, was silence from most legislators and the vast majority of the media.

Below is the news footage from the Life Dynamics investigation:

In Cincinnati, Planned Parenthood has been accused of covering up the sexual abuse of a teenage girl by her father. Ohio law requires professionals such as doctors, nurses, and teachers to report alleged sexual abuse. According to the 2007 lawsuit against Planned Parenthood, the teenager claims she was sexually abused by her father for another 18 months because Planned Parenthood failed to report the incest. After telling someone else about the incest, the girl’s father was prosecuted and sentenced to five years in prison.

In a second case involving Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio in Cincinnati, a 14-year old girl was impregnated by her 22-year old soccer coach. He then took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion. The soccer coach signed-off on the abortion saying he was her step-brother. The girl’s parents were neither notified nor gave their consent for the abortion. The parents filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood for failure to report the incident as required by Ohio’s parental notification law and for failure to report an incident of possible child abuse to authorities. The parents’ case is weakened somewhat because the daughter gave Planned Parenthood a false phone number for notification purposes. However, Planned Parenthood did nothing to confirm they were talking to the parents when they made the required notification call.

In this news footage below, we learn about how Planned Parenthood was sued in the case after Planned Parenthood failed to protect by reporting her abuse to authorities:

The victim, identified in court documents only as Jane Roe, was sexually abused and impregnated by a 22-year-old soccer coach in 2004.
A Hamilton County judge ruled against Planned Parenthood in the case of a the woman in that video who said she received an abortion when she was 14 years old.

The lawsuit, filed by the victim’s parents on her behalf, alleges that Planned Parenthood did not follow consent laws before performing an abortion on Roe.

“We know for certain, had they done their job, she would not have had the abortion,” said Roe’s attorney Brian Hurley. “It’s resulted in what we believe is severe trauma to a young woman.”

Hamilton County Common Pleas Court Judge Jody Luebbers ruled that Planned Parenthood breached its duty to have a physician see Roe at least 24 hours before her abortion and performed the abortion without parental notification.

But, these are not the only damming videos against Planned Parenthood. A few years ago Reporter Lila Rose from Live Action did a series of undercover video investigations revealing that yet again- Planned Parenthood was more than willing to cover for sexual child predators: In fact, after Lila Rose uncovered the abuse at a Planned Parenthood in Birmingham, Alabama, they were put on year-long probation for violating state parental consent laws.

Birmingham abortion clinic put on probation

02/10/2010

The Associated Press has reported that Planned Parenthood of Birmingham has been placed on probation. The AP story reads:
MONTGOMERY, Ala.—A Birmingham abortion clinic that was targeted in an undercover sting by anti-abortion activists has been put on probation by state health officials.
State inspectors, who went to the Planned Parenthood clinic after the sting by the anti-abortion group “Live Action,” cited problems with the reporting of suspected sexual abuse and how parental consent was obtained for minors. ( Sting Video Below)

( INFO FROM VIDEO)
Rose told the staffer that she was 14 and had been impregnated by a 31-year-old boyfriend. She told the Planned Parenthood official she needed a secret abortion so her parents would not find out about her sexual relationship with the older man.

Rose asks, “Is it a problem about my boyfriend?

The counselor, identified as “Tanisha” in the video, responds, “As long as you consented to having sex with him, there’s nothing we can truly do about that.”

Rose then says that her boyfriend “said he could get in big trouble,” and Tanisha acknowledges that “he could, especially if your parents find out that he’s 31.

The Planned Parenthood official then tells Rose that the center manager, Desiree Bates, “sometimes does bend the rules a little bit” and adds “whatever you tell us stays within these walls” and “we can’t disclose any information to anybody.”

Tanisha also seems to tell Rose that a signature from an “older sister that’s over the age of 18″ or someone “with the same last name” could function as a substitute for parental consent so Planned Parenthood could perform an abortion on a minor.

Yet, Alabama Code 26-21-3 specifies that the written permission of either a parent or legal guardian is necessary before a minor may obtain an abortion.

This is the seventh Planned Parenthood center implicated in a multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate and unlawful suppression of evidence of statutory rape. Alabama is the fourth state to be implicated in the controversy, along with Arizona, Indiana, and Tennessee.

Recently, the investigation of a clinic in Memphis, TN assisted state legislators in their effort to successfully divert nearly $1 million in taxpayer subsidies from Planned Parenthood to law-abiding local health clinics.

When to ‘bend the rules a little’ means hiding a case of statutory rape from Child Protective Services and looking for ways around the parental consent requirement, Planned Parenthood becomes directly responsible for ensuring that statutory rapists can continue their abuse of young girls,” Rose says.

In the video below, Lila Rose speaks with Glenn Beck and exposes how a Memphis Tennessee Planned Parenthood counselor tells an undercover investigator posing as a 14 year-old girl who said she was impregnated by a 31 year-old man, to lie to a Judge about her age so she can get an abortion ! This is a clear violation of the law !!!!

Just look at Planned Parenthood’s evil history through the eyes of this powerful documentary : Maafa21– and you will see that Planned Parenthood is never to be trusted again !
