Planned Parenthood, vote

Taxpayer-funded abortion corporation Planned Parenthood has announced it is joining other “progressive” groups to invest an “unprecedented” $30 million to influence who is elected to key state and federal offices in the 2018 midterm elections. In addition, Planned Parenthood has vowed to spend $20 million through its own political action committees in campaigns across several states. But these millions are not really as unprecedented as Planned Parenthood wants the public to believe, as it has poured an extremely large amount of money into elections over the years to elect pro-abortion Democrats, some with less than successful results.

Major Democrat donors, like Deborah Simon, have given money to Planned Parenthood’s political super PAC, Planned Parenthood Votes:

Soros family money is also flowing into Planned Parenthood’s PAC. In July, Andrea Soros Colombel, daughter of billionaire George Soros and member of the Open Society Board, donated $1 million.

According to media outlets, the abortion corporation said it plans to spend $20 million, targeting candidates in eight to ten states. In Minnesota, former Planned Parenthood staffer Tina Smith is running for Senate.

CNN reported that the move is designed to “help Democrats,” adding, “The initial list of targets includes eight states: Arizona, Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. It comes on top of $4.5 million spent on last year’s governor’s races in Virginia and New Jersey….”

“This is our last chance to flip some of those governors’ seats before redistricting,” Deirdre Schifeling, the executive director of Planned Parenthood Votes, told CNN.

A September 2018 article published by Fortune claims Planned Parenthood Votes is investing more than $4 million into 24 House races ahead of the midterm elections in November.

The spending spree under the political PAC, “Win Justice” is a joint effort from Planned Parenthood Votes, Center for Community Change Action, Color of Change PAC, and the very political Service Employees International Union (SEIU). (More on these groups in a separate article.) $3 million to jumpstart the campaign came from pro-abortion billionaire, George Soros.

Win Justice is currently spending heavily for the Bill Nelson campaign in Florida, where Nelson reportedly “has a long record of fighting against measures to ‘defund’ Planned Parenthood.”

On top of millions from Planned Parenthood, pro-abortion Emily’s List has vowed an unprecedented $37 million.

There are multiple reasons the abortion giant and its abortion cronies are dumping millions into local, state and federal elections:

  • Judges on the state and federal level can uphold pro-life regulations and laws, as well as free speech protections outside abortion facilities.
  • City/county commissions can decide what programs and organizations to fund or contract with.
  • Local school boards can choose to keep Planned Parenthood’s sex education out of their schools.
  • State lawmakers can pass pro-life laws and investigate abuse.
  • Governors can veto abortion legislation, sign pro-life legislation, issue executive orders to prohibit tax funding of abortion organizations, and more.
  • State attorney generals can investigate fraud, abuse and any number of illegal activities within the abortion industry.
  • Federal (House and Senate) lawmakers can introduce, support and vote for pro-life legislation and continue to investigate abuses within the abortion industry.
  • Lawmakers will also have a say over upcoming Supreme Court picks, probably one of the most important issues at hand today.

Also at the Federal level, lawmakers can send or withhold funding, influence appointments, control oversight, and issue important rule changes to key federal agencies such as:

  • Health and Human Services (HHS), where Title X family planning grants are flowing to Planned Parenthood to the tune of $60 million a year, despite aiding abusers in the cover-up of child sexual abusers.
  • Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which can change current requirements of the abortion pill regimen by permitting the “home use” of the dangerous pills. FDA officials have also (to the outrage of the American public) contracted with Advanced Bioscience Resources (ABR) to obtain “fresh human tissues” from aborted babies. ABR has paid Planned Parenthood thousands for aborted fetal tissue.
  • The National Institutes of Health (NIH), where taxpayers fund millions of dollars for human fetal tissue experiments, which may contain tissue from aborted fetuses, is estimated to spend $103 million in FY2018 and $95 million in FY2019 on these potentially gruesome research programs.

Tax dollars to Planned Parenthood from various agencies total over a billion dollars, according to the Charlotte Lozier Institute, which found:

From 2013 to 2015, Planned Parenthood spent a total of $1.5 billion in federal program funds, including combined federal and state funds under federal programs. Of this total, Planned Parenthood received $1.2 billion in reimbursements from Medicaid, and the remaining $289 million came from various programs under the Department of Health and Human Services as well as the departments of Agriculture, Education, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, and Justice.

The 2018 midterms are critical if pro-life voters want to keep the gains they have made on the state level and even more important if voters hope to continue to encourage Congress and the Trump administration to keep their promises to defund the nation’s largest and most profitable abortion corporation.

Live Action News has previously documented that, despite Planned Parenthood’s many abuses, year after year it receives $1.5 million taxpayer dollars every day, while ending the lives of 900 preborn babies through abortion. With so much on the line, is it any wonder this “healthcare organization” is vowing to spend millions to protect this cash cow?

Fake ‘pregnancy center’ learns women want parenting help, not abortion

Posted in ANSIRH, Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, Contraception Journal, David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Fake Pregnancy Center, Feminist Womens Health Center, Planned Parenthood Employee with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 7, 2018 by saynsumthn

The profitable abortion lobby with their language of “choice” has for years lashed out against pro-life pregnancy resource centers (PRC), falsely labeling them “fake” and “dishonest.” However, one pro-abortion referral service has chosen to masquerade as a PRC in Indiana. All-Options was specifically modeled after pro-life pregnancy centers, according to a blog post at the Abortion Gang (written by Catrina Otonoga, whose LinkedIn page states she works at the Preterm abortion facility). But one glaring difference is seen on the All-Options billboard below, where “abortion access” is listed as the first service:

Image: All Options billboard (Image: Facebook)

All-Options began in 2004 as Backline in Portland, and expanded to several other states, with its Talkline “counseling” number offering women the opportunity to speak to counselors who are “not licensed healthcare providers or mental health specialists.”

Image: All-Options Talkline no licensed counselors

All-Options Talkline

In 2014, All-Options created a GoFundMe page to raise money for a brick and mortar in Bloomington, Indiana, where it planned to offer “free pregnancy tests and condoms… Concrete resources like diapers, baby clothes, care packages, and educational materials… Referrals to pregnancy, birthing, abortion, adoption, parenting, and contraceptive providers and community resources.”

All-Options told supporters, “It is time to demonstrate that anti-abortion organizations do not have a monopoly on supporting parents and people who are continuing their pregnancies.” But is “All-Options” really about all options for women?

While All-Options advertises itself as a PRC, its stated goal is “to increase the availability of nonjudgmental pregnancy options counseling and to break down the silos that separate providers of abortion, adoption, pregnancy, and parenting services.”

In other words, All-Options openly supports abortion.

As seen below, the center’s executive director “serves on the steering committee of All* Above All” — a group seeking to “build support for lifting bans that deny abortion coverage” — and ran the California Coalition for Reproductive Freedom:

The center is so pro-abortion that, according to the social media posts below, it sued the state of Indiana over its abortion regulations:

In 2015, the All-Options Pregnancy Resource Center launched in Indiana, offering diapers and access to abortion funds are offered as “services.”

And this “PRC” has a very cozy relationship with the profitable abortion industry.

  • Wanda Savala, public affairs manager for Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, is currently on the board of All-Options.
  • Some All-Options volunteers also serve at Planned Parenthood.
  • Treasurer Kwajelyn Jackson currently serves as Community Education & Advocacy Director at the Feminist Women’s Health Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

On its website under “resources,” All-Options recommends that women contact the National Abortion Federation and Planned Parenthood, among others, for abortion.

Image: All Options PRC Refers to Planned Parenthood NAF for abortion

All-Options PRC refers to Planned Parenthood, NAF

A study, “What Women Seek from a Pregnancy Resource Center,”  funded by the pro-abortion David and Lucile Packard Foundation and published in 2016 in the pro-abortion journal Contraception, analyzed “survey data from first-time clients” of All-Options “between July and December 2015 on their reason(s) for seeking services….” Contraception is the official journal of the Association of Reproductive Health Professionals and the Society of Family Planning (originally founded as The American Association of Planned Parenthood Physicians by Alan Guttmacher). It is run by abortion supporters, and its 2018 editorial board consists of several high ranking abortionists and abortion advocates. It was no different in 2016, when the above study was published.

Author Katrina Kimport is on the faculty and staff of Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH), a group which publishes workbooks on abortion training… and which is behind a host of questionable and discredited studies. Kimport is also with the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, which is involved with “pioneering new methods of abortion, expanding the ranks of doctors specializing in abortion, and bolstering awareness of the positive impact of abortion on women’s lives.”

Also listed as authors are the aforementioned J. Parker Dockray and Shelly Dodson of All-Options PRC. The data, of course, came from a survey of All-Options PRC clients.

Dockray has been quoted as saying, “The prochoice movement is not always great about visibly supporting parents.” No argument there. And yet, it seems, according to the pro-abortion organization’s own survey, it was parenting support that was most sought out at All-Options… not abortion access.

 

Image: Fake PRC All Options promotes abortion

All-Options promotes abortion

The data compiled from the All-Options PRC survey of 270 clients, found that women using the All-Options PRC came to them for:

  • Free diapers (87%)
  • Baby clothes/items (44%)

In peer counseling, the clients most frequently discussed:

  • Parenting resources/referrals (55%)
  • Pregnancy options (6%)
  • Abortion (2%)

The study’s pro-abortion and highly biased authors admitted, “PRC clients largely sought parenting, not pregnancy, resources. The underutilization of pregnancy-options counseling and high demand for parenting materials and services point to unmet needs among caregivers of young children, particularly for diapers.” The authors concluded that the study’s results “suggest the need to rethink the allocation of resources toward funding or eliminating PRCs solely for the purpose of influencing women’s decisions about abortion.”

With thousands of legitimate pregnancy resource centers operating nationwide, why would Contraception focus on this fake “pregnancy center”? Perhaps they thought it would show a demand for more “abortion access.”

They thought wrong.

Planned Parenthood has been covering up child sexual abuse for a decade

Posted in Lila Rose, Live Action, Planned Parenthood Complicit Machine covering sexual abuse, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood fails to report rape with tags , , , , , , on June 24, 2018 by saynsumthn

The latest release in Live Action’s seven part docuseries, Aiding Abusers, demonstrates that, as far back as ten years ago, Planned Parenthood was covering-up child sexual abuse. This systemic child sexual abuse cover-up at Planned Parenthood, an organization receiving millions in tax dollars through federal Title X family planning programs, often results in sexual abuse victims being returned to their abusers for additional days, weeks, and even years of abuse. At a time when just about every industry has been held to task for their years of silence and complicity in covering up the sexual abuse of countless victims, it is past time for an honest look at Planned Parenthood.

Live Action founder and president Lila Rose stated in a press release:

Despite Planned Parenthood’s public rhetoric as well as laws requiring it to report suspected abuse, its failure to report has been deliberate and widespread. Time and again, rather than reporting abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way and performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old. These girls deserved advocacy but instead Planned Parenthood staff ignored their abuse and returned them to the waiting arms of their abusers.

Because of flagrant violations like these, the proposed Title X rule tightening on reporting abuse is absolutely necessary. Planned Parenthood has proven that its priority is selling abortions, not caring for the most vulnerable of girls. Planned Parenthood’s culture of cover-up must end, the cycle of abuse of innocent children must end, and Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in annual federal funding must end. Taxpayers cannot be forced to subsidize these abuses of children.

In the Statutory Rape Investigation video of the Aiding Abusers docuseries, Rose asks:

“How is it that sexual abuse of multiple victims can continue within an institution for years, sometimes decades?

“We get some answers from the case of Larry Nassar the US Gymnastics coach who was accused of molesting at least two hundred and fifty young girls, dating as far back as 1992. People heard about the abuse, they knew about the abuse, but they did nothing.”

Image: Just like Larry Nasser Lila Rose says nothing being done about Sex Abuse cover up at Planned Parenthood

‘Just like Larry Nassar’: Lila Rose says nothing being done about Sex Abuse cover up at Planned Parenthood

Former gymnast Rachael Denhollander, one of Nassar’s sexual abuse victims, told the court, “Larry Nassar did not arise in isolation. Rather, we saw the worst sexual assault scandal in history unfold because a predator was left in power for decades, despite warning signs, despite red flags, direct reports of assaults.”

Similar red flags, warning signs and reports exist where Planned Parenthood is concerned, and tragically, the organization’s complicity has also enabled sexual predators to remain in power and continue to use its services to cover predators’ crimes.

In 2008, Live Action investigators found out first hand how Planned Parenthood views victims of sexual abuse. Time and again, Live Action’s investigators, posing as 13- to 15-year-old girls with boyfriends as old as 31, were instead told how to protect their abusers. Just as in the Nassar case, the predator remained in control.

In this edition of the Aiding Abusers docuseries, Live Action will demonstrate how Planned Parenthood was covering-up child sexual abuse ten years ago, just as they are today.

“Our investigation found eight Planned Parenthood facilities in six different states that were willing to cover-up sexual abuse including, disregarding mandatory reporting laws of suspected statutory rape,” Lila Rose states.

The following is a compilation reel of that investigation:

At the Planned Parenthood in Bloomington, Indiana, the counselor tells Live Action’s investigator that she does not want to know how old the “boyfriend” is because “…[I]n the state of Indiana, anyone 13 years and younger… there has to be a report done to CPS….” Apparently, the 31-year-old abuser was more important to Planned Parenthood than the teen victim.

Image: Planned Parenthood Bloomington In doesn't want to know how old sexual abuser is

Planned Parenthood Bloomington, Indiana doesn’t want to know how old sexual abuser is

The Indianapolis, Indiana, Planned Parenthood was no different. In fact, not only did the Planned Parenthood counselor refuse to protect the young “victim,” but told the investigator, posing as a 13-year-old girl, that “surrounding states” do not have parental consent, hinting that the child would be easily able to access an abortion somewhere else.

In Tucson, Arizona, the Planned Parenthood counselor was also more willing to protect the abuser, an adult male manipulating a young girl into a sexual relationship. Rather than get more information and file a report, the counselor told the investigator that having sex with an adult was her “choice,” as long as she wasn’t “being forced to have sex,” despite clear laws against statutory rape.

At the Planned Parenthood at 302 North Jackson Street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the counselor was told that the adult “boyfriend” knew how old the 14-year-old investigator was when she asked, “Ok, so would he be paying for [the abortion], then?” The only advice the counselor gave Live Action’s investigator was that she “had the right to an abortion.” Despite disregarding mandatory reporting laws on child sexual abuse, this Planned Parenthood facility is currently listed as receiving Title X funds.

In Phoenix, Arizona, when the Live Action investigator posed as a 15-year-old with an adult boyfriend, Planned Parenthood implied that giving the counselor the man’s age was totally up to the victim, shutting down any chance that this adult pedophile could be caught.

Then, in Memphis, Tennessee, the Planned Parenthood counselor at first stated that she would speak with her manager because the adult boyfriend “is gonna get in trouble” — after all, the Planned Parenthood counselor initially tells the investigator, posing as 14, “he’s your age – doubled.” Then, she has a change of heart and tells Live Action’s investigator, “I’m not going to tell anybody…. Please don’t say that I told you this…. Just say you have a boyfriend 17 years old….”

In Birmingham, Alabama, the Planned Parenthood counselor tells Live Action’s investigator that as long as she “consented” to having sex with her 31-year-old boyfriend at the age of 14, then “there is nothing we can truly do about that.”

Live Action’s Aiding Abusers series contains horrific accounts and testimonials from actual victims taken from criminal and civil court records, health department agencies as well as news reports. Although the information may not be new in most instances, it is eye opening in light of the current #MeToo and #TimesUp movements now rightly demanding that those who are complicit in covering up abuse be exposed. The evidence has mounted, the silence from the media, politicians and Hollywood alike has been deafening. It’s time to stop protecting abusers who use Planned Parenthood to cover their crimes and to start holding this taxpayer-funded organization accountable.

It’s past time for Congress to both investigate Planned Parenthood and to remove Title X dollars and the balance of the half billion federal dollars from Planned Parenthood, once and for all. To do nothing is to also be complicit in this abuse.

Pro-abortion media can’t be trusted to report truth about Planned Parenthood

Posted in Planned Parenthood Employee, Pro-choice Hypocrisy, RH Reality Blog with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 23, 2018 by saynsumthn

abortion, Planned Parenthood

The media has remained silent about Live Action’s investigative report and docuseries, Aiding Abusers, which documents the decades-long child sexual abuse cover-up by taxpayer funded Planned Parenthood. The horrific criminal cases, civil lawsuits, and health department records alone — some recently uncovered by Live Action and some published previously by other pro-life organizations — are, in and of themselves, substantial evidence showing Planned Parenthood’s disregard for victims of child sexual abuse. Add to that Live Action’s undercover investigations, along with testimonies from former Planned Parenthood staffers who witnessed Planned Parenthood’s complicity in failing to report suspicion of abuse, and the proof is overwhelming.

In addition to the Planned Parenthood-supportive media, organizations and individuals who praised the MeToo and TimesUp movements are also silent.  An obvious example can be seen in an article published by pro-abortion Rewire News, which claims its goal is to “[…] foster public knowledge and enlightenment through high-quality evidence-based news, analysis, commentary, and investigative reporting….”

Image: Rewire News fails sexual abuse victims taken to Planned Parenthood

However, while one might expect a level of bias from Rewire News, author Katelyn Burns exhibited not a hint of true journalism in her piece, “Republicans Coordinate With Discredited Anti-Choice Group to Call for Planned Parenthood Investigation.” As I read Burns’ piece, I wrongly anticipated that Burns might mention, with some level of empathy, the victims of sexual abuse, some as young as twelve years old, taken by their abusers to Planned Parenthood and then returned back to the abusers for additional suffering. I assumed Rewire might issue some level of rebuke, token of disdain or outrage regarding theses horrific cases. I assumed Burns might conclude that something is wrong at Planned Parenthood, and side, not with the big corporation, but with actual sexual abuse victims.

I was wrong.

Instead of examining all the evidence presented by Live Action, Burns was hyper-focused on the two undercover investigations conducted by Live Action, which (according to media reports) resulted in the firing of at least twoPlanned Parenthood staffers and one being put on probation by their state’s Department of Health. Without citing any evidence, except a lazy link to a Huffington Post article which made a false claim about a completely separate Live Action investigation, Burns called the undercover stings “discredited and extensively edited ‘sting’ footage.” Burns was so unable to see through her bias that she failed to even acknowledge more than two-thirds of Live Action’s evidence. In so doing, Burns completely disregarded sexual abuse victims like Denise Fairbanks, who, as Live Action detailed, was forced by her rapist to have an abortion. Denise’s cries for help were then — according to the victim, not Live Action — ignored by Planned Parenthood.

Burns also disregarded the sexual abuse victim of predator George Savanah, who, according to the criminal caseagainst him, brought his young victim to Planned Parenthood not once, not twice, but on three separate occasions, and each time it appears that Planned Parenthood returned her to her abuser.

Image: George Savanah impregnates daughter three times and takes her to Planned Parenthood

The cases in Live Action’s report are horrific and are most likely the reason Burns selectively left them out and made a deliberate decision to be a propagandist for Planned Parenthood rather than a true investigative journalist. Another reason might be because on the Rewire News board of directors is none other than Bryan Howard, CEO of Planned Parenthood Arizona. Live Action conducted two of undercover stings in Arizona, and Live Action’s report contains details of a criminal case involving Planned Parenthood in Arizona.

In that case, Planned Parenthood allegedly told a 15-year-old rape victim it wasn’t worth the “hassle” for them to report her rape to police, then also allegedly miscoded the incident as “consensual” sex.

Image: Image taken from Tyler Kost police report

OOPS!

I guess Burns saw no need to reveal this conflict of interest.

We have seen this kind of selective reporting before, when NBC News squashed Ronan Farrow’s initial report regarding the predatory behavior of Harvey Weinstein. Last month, Farrow told Recode Decode, “The fact that there was a veil of silence around the Harvey Weinstein story for decades is not accidental, and there were a variety of systems that kept it silent…. The question of the complicity of the media and the role the media played in keeping this quiet for as long as it was quiet, are important ones.” He added:

I think one reason why I structured those stories… around systems rather than individuals, is because the systems still have a long way to go…. This was a story about the abuse of power and the way in which the most powerful people in this country can manipulate the press, manipulate the judicial and legal process…. These are systems that are still be used every day.

Now, Planned Parenthood’s complicity of silence is shamefully doing the exact same thing, but just as in the Weinsteincase and other abuse cases, truth cannot be silenced. It will eventually come out.

WATCH: Attorney describes Planned Parenthood’s appalling treatment of abuse victims

Image: Attorney Brian Hurley sued Planned Parenthood for covering child sexual abuse

The latest in a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood’s complicity in covering child sexual abuse features an attorney who represented actual victims of the abortion corporation’s “don’t ask/don’t tell” policies on reporting sexual abuse. The interview, conducted by Live Action, comes at a time when society has demanded that organizations who are complicit in covering sexual abuse be held to account. This call has been loud in the media, politics, Hollywood, and sports. The one place this has been glossed over and nearly ignored has been with regard to Planned Parenthood’s complicity.

The “Prosecution” video in Live Action’s multi-part series, Aiding Abusers, opens with a statement by Steven Spielberg addressing the sexual abuse scandal in Hollywood that catapulted the #MeToo movement: “The other thing we have to think about is this: Hollywood and celebrity gets a lot of recognition. You can’t just think of this as a Hollywood problem. And we can’t forget the people that can’t afford attorneys. We can’t forget those people that are afraid to come out to say what happened to them because they have nobody to represent them or to stand up for them. I am more concerned about that group than I am about the celebrities that are being exposed and immediately get a huge amount of attention…. [T]hese kind of crimes of sexual assault are happening daily.”

What the Hollywood producer said is especially true when it comes to Planned Parenthood’s victims of abuse cover-up. This multi-million dollar tax funded organization has influence in very powerful circles like the media, Hollywood, and political power structures, outed for covering abuse in the past.

No one knows this more than Ohio litigator Brian Hurley, Esq., whose track record of going after those complicit in covering up sexual abuse is stellar. Hurley dared to face off against Planned Parenthood to defend the young victims of abuse covered-up by this powerful organization. He also once brought charges against the Catholic Church for its role in covering up the sexual abuse of young boys, and later brought two civil cases against Planned Parenthood for covering up the rape of teenage girls.

“I’m a devout Catholic, and I believe the Catholic Church had to be taken to task for what it did and didn’t do with respect to the abuse of boys, mostly boys,” Hurley told Live Action News. “And I was proud as being part of a prosecuting attorney’s office that we brought claims – charges – against the Archdiocese of Cincinnati for its conduct. And I think it gave me credibility.”

But Hurley noted nothing would prepare him for what would take place when he agreed to represent two victims of Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse cover-up. Hurley said that Planned Parenthood, with its half a billion in tax dollars annually, has a litany of attorneys in its arsenal, which it uses against anyone who dares to challenge the organization in court, even when the case is filed to get justice for victims of rape or sexual assault.

“I will tell you I grossly underestimated what I was getting involved in. I’d been involved in very complex litigation for many years as lead counsel and I thought that would prepare me for litigating against Planned Parenthood. And I was wrong,” Hurley said, adding:

Planned Parenthood, when it is sued, hires the best lawyers in the United States. Planned Parenthood will fund the defense of litigation in a matter that, from what I could tell in our cases, it was limitless…. In both of our cases, Planned Parenthood’s lawyers fought every single issue, every aspect of discovery. Every aspect of the case was litigated. Much more so, in fact, than I had seen in any of the other cases I had been involved in my 35 years. Which, I think, from my perspective — and this is argued throughout our pleadings — was an attempt to make it prohibitively expensive for us to continue.

The majority of the plaintiffs in these cases are very poor people, are people from backgrounds where they don’t have much money. And it’s hard to find lawyers who are willing to spend six years litigating against an organization that is going to require you to devote thousands of hours to litigate those claims. And I think that is something that Planned Parenthood and its lawyers are very good at.

The first case involved a 14-year-old girl who went to Planned Parenthood for an abortion after being impregnated by her 21-year-old soccer coach. According to Hurley’s interview with Live Action News, when the adult predator, John Haller, found out that his minor victim, Chelsea, was pregnant, he understood that “he was going to be in serious trouble if that… was ever disclosed.” So, Haller convinced the teen, in Hurley’s words, to “have an abortion, and told her that that was the only way they could stay together, that he loved her and if she had the abortion they would stay together — and, she thought, would get married.”

But rather than investigate or report suspicion of abuse, Planned Parenthood asked few questions and simply took the word of Haller over the phone that he was the victim’s parent, after Haller instructed the girl to give his number to Planned Parenthood. Then, according to court documents, after the abortion, the abuser resumed having sex with the teen. As a result of a subsequent report made by a teacher, Haller was later found guilty of seven counts of sexual battery.

Hurley told Live Action News that the victim’s parents sued Planned Parenthood on several claims, that included a failure to report suspected abuse and a failure to obtain the consent of her parents before the abortion or even notify them. Planned Parenthood settled the case out of court.

The second case involved another teen who had been sexually abused by her father since she was 13. When she became pregnant at age 16, the abuser forced her to have an abortion at Planned Parenthood.

The victim, Denise Fairbanks, told Planned Parenthood’s staff that her father was raping her, but instead of reporting the abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood sent Denise home with the abuser where he continued to assault her for another year and a half. The abuser was stopped only after Denise spoke to her coach — and the coach, not Planned Parenthood, went to law enforcement.

The Planned Parenthood employee said to her something to the effect, “If you’re going to sleep around you need to get on birth control.”

And Denise was stunned, and she took that as really an insult, that she was being called a whore. And, so, what Denise… said in response was, “This was not supposed to happen, I was forced to do things I didn’t want to do.”

Of Planned Parenthood’s failure to report the sexual abuse being inflicted on this young victim, Hurley told Live Action, “It was clear to me that they had a duty to report suspected abuse. I think known abuse, but, at least suspected abuse. They didn’t. And her father continued to rape her for another year.”

Hurley told Live Action News, “Had they reported Denise’s abuse immediately, the abuse would have stopped…. Unfortunately, it was a year later.”

Hurley also told Live Action News he believes the media has given Planned Parenthood a pass and that, as a result, more sexual abuse will be covered up:

While they’re correct in terms of the way they have handled and exposed or or attempted to expose, the abuse that took place in the Catholic Church up in Michigan State, and now even in the #MeToo movement, I think that’s great. What I find to be hypocritical is the media’s refusal to do a serious investigation of what occurs at Planned Parenthood.

There’s been enough information provided to the press, with Lila Rose for example, when she did her exposés, both with respect to the attempts in those situations, based upon the video I saw, of people at Planned Parenthood coaching girls not to say certain things so they wouldn’t have to report abuse. Also, to the videos that talked about the sex trafficking and the prostitution. Clearly, the mainstream media has decided that they don’t want to expose or do an investigation… to find out what is actually going on at Planned Parenthood.

Hurley added, “[I]f I, as a devout Catholic, would participate in the prosecution of the Catholic Church for what it’s role was in failure to report abuse, then I have no problems trying to expose what Planned Parenthood does and doesn’t do.”

But, as Live Action News has previously documented, Planned Parenthood regularly rewards journalists for their complicity of silence on failing to accurately report their abuses, which include Medicaid fraudprivacy breaches, and a failure to report sexual abuse among others.

The evidence against Planned Parenthood is mounting.

Live Action President and Founder Lila Rose commented, “Without over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers, it would be much harder for Planned Parenthood to litigate these abuse cases for years until they wore victims down, never formally admitting their cover up of these young girls’ rape. When Planned Parenthood gets taken to court, it’s the taxpayers who are paying for Planned Parenthood’s defense and helping to put these children through years of litigation and prolonging their agony.”

In the investigative report entitled, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” (which can be read here) evidence of Planned Parenthood’s history and corporate culture of failing to report incidents to authorities include:

  1. Court cases including testimonies of victims experiencing horrific abuse
  2. State health department records
  3. Testimonies from former Planned Parenthood workers
  4. Two Live Action Undercover investigations
  5. Loyola University study on sex trafficking

Live Action’s companion video docuseries includes tragic details of criminal and civil cases (many previously in the public record thanks in part to pro-life groups such as Life Dynamics) in which victims were returned to their abusers to be further assaulted. It also contains testimony from former Planned Parenthood staffers, who repeatedly witnessed the organization’s systematic and troubling disregard of mandatory reporting laws. The abortion giant currently receives $60 million from the federal Title X family planning program and hundreds of millions of dollars from Medicaid and other state and federal government money. In 2015, 474 of Planned Parenthood’s nearly 650 facilities were Title X recipients, according to a Guttmacher Institute report. In total, Planned Parenthood receives over half a billion dollars annually in federal and state tax dollars.

Under Title X, recipients are required to follow state and federal reporting laws on reporting sexual abuse.

Former Planned Parenthood staff: We were told not to report sexual abuse

Live Action’s Aiding Abusers docuseries, exposing how Planned Parenthood aids sexual abusers by failing to report child sexual abuse, makes it clear that the taxpayer-funded organization views children not as potential victims but more as “animals” who are unable to control their sexual appetites. In the latest release from the the Aiding Abusers docuseries, former Planned Parenthood workers reveal how the organization treated victims of sexual abuse:

In her introductions of the Former Workers video, Live Action president and founder Lila Rose points out:

When it comes to reports of sexual assault and sexual harassment, Planned Parenthood has used the slogan that we should ‘trust women,’ so lets’s follow that advice and listen to the testimonies of these four women who are former Planned Parenthood workers and managers who all say the same thing, that Planned Parenthood routinely covers-up child sexual abuse.

In the video, former Planned Parenthood employee Catherine Adair observed how the organization routinely allowed sexual abusers into the counseling rooms with their victims. When Adair objected, she was scolded and told that the victims were better off with abortions.

“There’d be girls coming in with their abusers…. Even if I went to the manager and I said, look, there’s something going on here, she would say, ‘She’s better off with the abortions. We can’t do anything about what’s going on at home but at least we can give her the abortion.’”

Monica Cline, a former HIV health educator and Title X training manager, observed Planned Parenthood’s work first hand:

I was teaching on human trafficking and statutory rape, and was telling Planned Parenthood staff of Corpus Christi and the Gulf Coast, basically, you’ve got to report when you see a girl coming in with an older man that you can tell is not her father. You know something’s wrong, you’ve got to report that; it’s considered human trafficking. It is also considered statutory rape; you’ve got to report this. And they started laughing.

She went on to state, “And I said, ‘I don’t think there was anything I said that was funny. What’s going on here?’ And the response was, ‘Honey, if she’s not having sex with this man this week she’ll have another one next week.’”

Think about that response for a moment. If what Cline is saying is correct, victims of sexual abuse are seen by this abortion corporation as simply promiscuous and in need of abortions and birth control, rather than protection from sexual predators. And that is exactly what Cline went on to describe, noting that, in her opinion, Planned Parenthood sees potential victims of child sexual abuse in a “distorted” way (emphasis added):

And so their view of our children is distorted. It’s dehumanized. I don’t know why their hearts are hardened, but they are. And so when a girl or a young man goes there for an abortion, or condoms or testing, they don’t see them with compassion anymore, if they ever did. Um, they see them as just, almost like an animal who can’t control themselves; they’re always gonna have sex so we’re just going to give them enough lube and condoms and hope they come in to get tested before they get some kind of cancer. They’re not gonna stop statutory rape.

Um, one of the things that they even mentioned was, they adopted [a] don’t ask, don’t tell [policy]…. If we don’t ask how old her partner is, we don’t have to tell. And so, Planned Parenthood actually allows victims of human trafficking to continue to be victims of human trafficking. And they’re okay with that. I went back to my office and I told my supervisor, like — listen, I’m trying to teach them about key concepts on Title X; they’re admitting that they’re not gonna report cases of statutory rape.

The response from my supervisor was, “Your job is to teach them key concepts, and that’s it.” She was really upset with me that I challenged that.

Former Planned Parenthood manager Sue Thayer stated that Planned Parenthood was more concerned about potential “trouble” from the victim’s family or boyfriend than they were about the victim. Thayer told Live Action, “We were all required to be mandatory reporters, but if we saw a case… uh… questionable abuse, or even for sure — I mean, this kid is being abused – um, we really were discouraged from calling it in, just because, uh, they didn’t want to have the trouble, the angry parent, uh, the angry boyfriend, whatever it was. So, more than once I was told, ‘No, that is not reportable – you don’t need to call it in.’”

Former Planned Parenthood employee Marianne Anderson also testified to a systemic cover-up of sexual abuse at the abortion corporation. She described an Asian girl who came to Planned Parenthood with a very controlling man who even talked for the girl. The girl described living in a place with many other young women, little food, and little clothing. Perhaps you and I can read between the lines here, but for Planned Parenthood, no alarm bells were raised and all they saw were dollar signs for the abortion.

When Marianne was asked how she felt about the lack of concern Planned Parenthood had for this potential victim, she responded, “Degraded, like women don’t really matter.”

“Like men — some men can be very controlling — but I think Planned Parenthood even added to that,” the former Planned Parenthood employee said.

These former staffers are not alone. Victims themselves have pointed out Planned Parenthood’s willingness to be complicit in sexual abuse.

One victim’s story, published anonymously by Feminists for Life, claims that when she was abused at the age of 12 by both an older brother and a college-age friend of the family, Planned Parenthood’s only concern was how often she was having intercourse, not who may have impregnated her:

[M]y older brother took me to Planned Parenthood…. The whole visit was terrifying. No one explained anything. I was examined, gave urine and blood samples, and shown a chart of an egg going around a big circle marked by days of the month. I was asked questions like, “frequency of intercourse?” and “method of birth control preferred?” I did not know what intercourse meant, so I just said “a lot,” and I had no idea what methods of birth control existed. No one asked who my “partner” was; no one expressed any dismay, concern, or even interest that a 12-year-old girl needed a pregnancy test. I heard a lot about “being responsible” and “taking control of my body.

Someone gave me a handful of condoms on the way out and made a joke about it being an assortment — red, blue, and yellow. The yellow ones were called Tinglers. I stuffed them in my purse and threw them away later.

My older brother maintained a strong silence throughout the entire time — no one asked him a single question.

The victim claims that she ended up starting her period and did not keep the abortion appointment. In addition, she states that the sexual abuse ended only after one predator moved away and the older brother set his sights on other victims from the neighborhood.

Sadly, this girl’s abuse — and many other victims’ abuse — may have been prevented if Planned Parenthood had bothered to ask about potential abuse.

Live Action’s Lila Rose stated in a press release:

Despite Planned Parenthood’s public rhetoric as well as laws requiring it to report suspected abuse, its failure to report has been deliberate and widespread. Time and again, rather than reporting abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way and performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old. These girls deserved advocacy but instead Planned Parenthood staff ignored their abuse and returned them to the waiting arms of their abusers.

Because of flagrant violations like these, the proposed Title X rule tightening on reporting abuse is absolutely necessary. Planned Parenthood has proven that its priority is selling abortions, not caring for the most vulnerable of girls. Planned Parenthood’s culture of cover-up must end, the cycle of abuse of innocent children must end, and Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in annual federal funding must end. Taxpayers cannot be forced to subsidize these abuses of children.

Live Action is releasing this report as the Time’s Up movement is exposing both sexual abusers and those who help them cover up their crimes — the people who knew about the abuse but stayed silent. While Planned Parenthood has attached itself to the Time’s Up movement, the movement should be calling out Planned Parenthood for decades of enabling sexual abusers.

‘Aiding Abusers’ series exposes Planned Parenthood’s complicity in covering sexual abuse

As Hollywood, the media, and others are being exposed for their complicity in covering up the sexual abuse and harassment of women, another organization has flown silently under the radar and remained hidden from the public’s scrutiny for decades, thanks also to the complicity of… you guessed it… Hollywood, the media, and others (like politicians). To this day, despite continually turning a blind eye to victims of abuse, there is an organization which receives cover from these abortion supporters, and it is time for it to end. This organization is Planned Parenthood.

Part one of Live Action’s seven part Aiding Abusers docuseries exposing a systemic, decades long cover-up of child sexual abuse at Planned Parenthood includes an overview of what you will view in each video Live Action is about to release.

The series is introduced by Live Action president and founder, Lila Rose, who says, “Through the TimesUP and MeToo movements, America is calling for an end to sexual abuse in every institution. Whether it’s Hollywood, sports, politics or big media; we’ve heard the names of perpetrators and their enablers — people who knew about the abuse, but did nothing to stop it.”

Rose continues, “But few are calling out one of America’s biggest accomplices to sexual abuse even though there is widespread documentation of systemic sexual abuse cover-up behind its doors. The group is called Planned Parenthood, and they are tax funded.”

“Through Live Action’s seven part video series,” Rose states, “We will show you how Planned Parenthood consistently and deliberately fails to report instances of child sexual abuse to law enforcement. Our series includes many cases documented in the public record, including lawsuits and news reports of Planned Parenthood’s sexual abuse cover-up.”

In the Recorded Cases video, you will learn how children as young as 12 years old have been repeatedly and mercilessly abused by adult sexual predators due to the same “don’t ask/don’t tell” policies that existed during the Harvey Weinstein, Matt Lauer, Charlie Rose, Al Franken, and Kevin Spacey abuse scandals. And, yet, despite the rise of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements, Planned Parenthood has yet to be called out for its scandalous cover-ups of sexual abuse.

On the heels of Hollywood’s Golden Globe awakening regarding sexual abuse scandals, celebrities and reporters alike continue to turn a blind eye where Planned Parenthood is concerned. As a result, victims of abuse are often returned to the hands of their abusers by this organization to be raped and sexually assaulted for days, weeks, months and even years to follow. These victims have been silenced, there are no marches for them — and because of the power that this so-called “women’s health provider” wields, few are willing to step forward to be their voice.

Then, states Rose, “We then hear the testimony of former employees and managers that witness Planned Parenthood’s enabling of abuse, first hand.”

In the Former Workers video, interviews with former Planned Parenthood staffers will reveal that these cover-ups are systematic throughout the organization. Sue Thayer, former manager of a Planned Parenthood facility, claims that the organization discouraged mandatory reporting of child sexual abuse. In the era of #MeToo and #TimesUP, why has this organization, funded with half a billion tax dollars annually, been immune from the fallout of complicity in covering sexual abuse?

Catherine Adair, a former Planned Parenthood staffer, recounts how girls would come into her facility with their abusers, but she testified that the abortion facility staff’s attitude was that the girl “was better off with the abortion” rather than reporting the abuse.

Monica Cline, an HIV health educator and Title X training manager, also testified to witnessing this cover-up of abuse. Cline claims that Planned Parenthood’s view of children is distorted and dehumanizing and stems from a false ideology that young people are “like and animals that cannot control themselves” where sex is concerned. She claims the organization has adopted a “don’t ask/don’t tell” policy on sexual abuse, in other words, “if we don’t ask how old her partner is, we don’t have to tell.”

Former Planned Parenthood employee Marianne Anderson also testified to a systemic cover-up of child sexual abuse at the abortion corporation. She described an Asian girl who came to her center with a very controlling man who even talked for the girl. The girl described living in a place with many other young women, little food, and little clothing. Perhaps you and I can read between the lines here, but for Planned Parenthood, no alarm bells were raised and all they saw was the dollar signs for the abortion.

According to Rose, the Aiding Abusers series will also include “two of Live Action’s national undercover investigations into Planned Parenthood.”

The Statutory Rape video will recap when Live Action’s investigators went undercover to see first hand just how Planned Parenthood would respond when faced with alleged child sexual abuse. This systematic cover-up of abuse happening at Planned Parenthood can be seen with new eyes against the backdrop of the Harvey Weinstein scandal and others like it. Since Live Action’s investigation first aired, politicians, celebrities, and reporters have all failed to hold Planned Parenthood to account; rather, they have granted the organization cover.

Live Action’s Sex Trafficking video recaps another Live Action undercover investigation, this time revealing how Planned Parenthood staffers aided and abetted child sex traffickers. Since the first time this investigation was published, Live Action has learned how, rather than investigate the troubling accusations, members of the media simply published the abortion profiteer’s public relations talking points. This type of complicity machinearound Planned Parenthood not only keeps the organization in an unaccountable position of power, but also helps to aid in the continued abuse of child victims.

Next, Live Action will republish an interview with a former staffer who can testify that after Live Action’s investigation into the way Planned Parenthood aided and abetted sex traffickers, the abortion organization lied to the media when it claimed to be “retraining staff” regarding the reporting of these types of horrific abuses. Tragically, just as in many other instances of complicity in sexual abuse, the media has failed to hold this organization accountable and instead has been a willing pawn in its web of lies.

“Our interview with former Planned Parenthood manager, Ramona Treviño,” Rose says in the Aiding Abusers overview video, “reveals that, in the wake of Live Action’s sex trafficking investigation, Planned Parenthood lied to the American people about retraining thousands of staff members to report suspected sexual abuse and human trafficking.”

In the final video of the series, “Prosecution,” Live Action will air a shocking interview with an attorney who, in addition to bringing charges against the Catholic Church for its role in covering up the sexual abuse of young boys, also brought two cases against Planned Parenthood for covering up the rape of teenage girls.

Planned Parenthood’s ongoing history in failing to report suspected child abuse should, at the very least, result in the organization losing millions of taxpayer dollars under the federal Title X Family Planning Program. According to a March 2016 report by the Congressional Research Services, reporting suspicion of child sexual abuse is expected of Title X providers. The report stated that “although minors are to receive confidential services, Title X providers are not exempt from state notification and reporting laws on child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest.”

Planned Parenthood has violated this requirement time and time again, yet they continue to be funded. After Live Action’s investigations showed the organization potentially covering for sex traffickers, the deputy secretary for the Office of Population Affairs simply reiterated the expectation to report abuse instead of defunding the abortion giant.

A new rule, recently proposed by HHS, does require reporting of sexual abuse. This docuseries is further evidence as to why this is needed.

In total, Planned Parenthood receives half a billion dollars in federal and state tax monies, despite covering for child sexual predators. A state by state summary of the cases can be viewed at Live Action News, here and here. Additional stories can be read here. More examples will be published in upcoming articles of the Aiding Abusers docuseries. The summaries are tragic and show that time and again, young girls continued to be victimized by their abusers after receiving “services” at the abortion corporation.

Live Action’s Lila Rose stated in a press release:

Despite Planned Parenthood’s public rhetoric as well as laws requiring it to report suspected abuse, its failure to report has been deliberate and widespread. Time and again, rather than reporting abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way and performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old. These girls deserved advocacy but instead Planned Parenthood staff ignored their abuse and returned them to the waiting arms of their abusers.

Because of flagrant violations like these, the proposed Title X rule tightening on reporting abuse is absolutely necessary. Planned Parenthood has proven that its priority is selling abortions, not caring for the most vulnerable of girls. Planned Parenthood’s culture of cover-up must end, the cycle of abuse of innocent children must end, and Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in annual federal funding must end. Taxpayers cannot be forced to subsidize these abuses of children.

Live Action is releasing this report as the Time’s Up movement is exposing both sexual abusers and those who help them cover up their crimes — the people who knew about the abuse but stayed silent. While Planned Parenthood has attached itself to the Time’s Up movement, the movement should be calling out Planned Parenthood for decades of enabling sexual abusers.

Call upon Congress to investigate and defund this corrupt organization and demand that the media hold Planned Parenthood to account.
