Is it any wonder that a Planned Parenthood in New Jersey was caught by undercover investigators covering for the sexual abuse of underage girls :
After pressure from the public when the video went viral, Planned Parenthood fired the employee.
Studies indicate that, of pregnant girls 15 or younger, 60 to 80 percent are impregnated by adult men. Further, the data shows that the younger the girl is, the older the perpetrator is likely to be. Research also demonstrates that the average age of men who father children with girls 14 or younger is higher than those who father children with women 18 years old.*
When underage girls, sexually active with adult men, are compared to girls having sex with boys close to their own age, a pattern of self-destructive behavior emerges. They are more prone to: have multiple sex partners, engage in dangerous sexual behaviors, become pregnant, drop out of school, run away from home, abuse drugs or alcohol, be on welfare, become estranged from friends and family, be in physically abusive relationships, get divorced or be lured into prostitution.*
One study showed that girls between 11 and 13 who are sexually active with men more than five years older than themselves are significantly more likely to attempt suicide.*
Research also indicates that the highest number of sexually transmitted diseases is among girls 15 to 19. Further, an overwhelming majority of them were exposed to these STDs by adult men.*
This documented evidence was researched and compiled by Life Dynamics, Inc. The Denton, Texas pro-life research organization was also responsible for exposing the ghastly dissection of aborted babies and the wholesale marketing of their body parts. Their investigative efforts resulted in a special exposé on the network news program, 20/20, which independently confirmed Life Dynamics’ research. As a result, a special hearing was held in Congress.

When the caller asked an employee if her age would be an issue, she responded that, with cash, she could be any age she wanted to be. It also became clearly evident that circumventing the law was a routine task for many of the facilities. Some readily admitted that this was a common occurrence.
The following are actual transcripts of calls made.
Clinic: Oh, okay. Let me stop you right here because if you tell me anything else, I have to call the Police.
Clinic: Because you’re 13 and your partner’s 22, right?
Clinic: That’s against the law. I have to report it by law.
Clinic: So I don’t want to know your name or anything about you if you don’t want me calling the Police.
Clinic: So what you need to do is you need to call completely anonymously and, umm, ya know, talk to someone on our appointment line. And don’t tell us anything about who your partner is. Okay?
Clinic: Actually, that’s considered statutory rape.
Clinic: You’re 14 and he’s 22.
Caller: Well, what can I do?
Clinic: You need to come in and let us evaluate you.
Caller: Okay. Would you guys have to tell anybody?
Clinic: Here? No, we don’t tell anybody anything.
Clinic: We try and keep things confidential, but if it’s something the clinician feels a bad feeling about then she might want to – she might call and report it.
Caller: So I shouldn’t tell her anything?
Clinic: Well, that is true. You could, you could do that if you wanted to.
Caller: Oh, okay.
Clinic: So, you could change his age or something if you feel that you need to.
Caller: Oh, okay.
Clinic: Don’t tell anyone I said that. (laughs)
Caller: All right.
Planned Parenthood continues to pollute the minds of young people about sex.
