Planned Parenthood

Live Action has begun releasing its docuseries and investigative report showing Planned Parenthood’s failure to report the ongoing sexual abuse of young girls who enter its facilities for abortions. Live Action News has documented many cases showing that this is not isolated where Planned Parenthood is concerned. Today, as the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements demand that those who help hide or cover abuse are also called to account, Live Action’s Aiding Abusersdocuseries is proving, yet again, that Planned Parenthood continues to get a pass from the media and Hollywood elites — as well as from the politicians who continue to fund them.

Tragically, because of the complicity machine surrounding Planned Parenthood and its refusal to view these young women as sexual assault victims, young victims of sexual abuse are often abused further. Live Action News continues to uncover cases that indicate Planned Parenthood is not doing its due diligence to protect young victims of sexual abuse — and in many cases, isn’t asking about it and is failing to report it.

Live Action president and founder 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.

 

 

Texas: Patrick Charles Lee

When a 14-year-old sexual assault victim shows up at Planned Parenthood, it rarely raises alarm. In reality, it should. If the child lies or fails to tell Planned Parenthood that she was raped or assaulted, should this not still raise some red flags?

Such was the case of a 14-year-old rape victim in Texas who testified that on the day of the assault, she stayed home from school because she was not feeling well. That’s when the victim’s step father, Patrick Charles Lee came into her room and started “wrestling” with the young teen. Then, the girl told the court that he put a knife against her neck and instructed her to take off her clothes, after which he proceeded to sexually assault her. The victim testified that she kept screaming, “Daddy, why are you doing this to me?”

According to the court document:

After the assaults, appellant threw the victim’s clothes at her and told her to get dressed. The victim testified that she went to Planned Parenthood two days after the assault. She did not tell anyone at Planned Parenthood about the assaults because she was afraid. She stated that she did not truthfully answer the medical questionnaire from Planned Parenthood. The victim told her sister what appellant had done about a week after the offense. The offense was then reported to the Midland County Sheriff’s Office.

Thankfully, due to the courage of the victim and her sister, Lee was subsequently indicted on two counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child. According to the court record, the jury convicted Lee and assessed his punishment at fifteen years confinement on each offense, and the trial court ordered the sentences to run consecutively.

Connecticut: Sage Robert Lanza

In January of 2018, a Connecticut man received a suspended 10-year sentence behind bars, after having sex with two underage victims, ages 12 and 14, one whom he impregnated and took for an abortion at Planned Parenthood.  According to media reports, the sexual encounters between 18-year-old Sage Robert Lanza and the then 14-year-old victim took place between February of 2014 and April of 2015, resulting in a pregnancy in November of 2014.

According to reports, after Lanza impregnated the teen, he pressured her to have an abortion, made the appointment for her and then drove her to the Planned Parenthood in Enfield.

A closer look at this timeline indicates the possibility that Planned Parenthood failed to report any suspicion of abuse. Two news articles published by Journal Inquirer give the following specific dates:

  • Lanza impregnated the teen in November of 2014 and then made an appointment for her at Planned Parenthood in Enfield.
  • The victim claims Lanza forced her to have an abortion in January of 2015.
  • 197 text messages were exchanged between the victim and Lanza from September 2014 to May 2015, months after the Planned Parenthood abortion.
  • Police were not notified until July of 2015, nearly six months after the teen was taken to Planned Parenthood.

A report by the Journal Inquirer quotes from arrest records that also indicate Planned Parenthood never filed a report:

The older girl told authorities that her relationship with Lanza began in February 2014, when she was a 14-year-old virgin and he was an 18-year-old high school senior. She said the relationship continued to April 2015 and included intercourse “at least four times a week,” later waning to “a couple of times per week.”

…Although Lanza used birth control about “99 percent of the time,” according to the girl, she said she got pregnant by him in November 2014, when she was 14.

She said he forced her to have an abortion in January 2015. The affidavit doesn’t explain how the girl contends that Lanza forced her to have the abortion. But it does say that he made an appointment for her at Planned Parenthood in Enfield and that he and his father took her to a clinic, where she received pills to induce the abortion.

The girl’s mother reported that Lanza had the date of the abortion tattooed on his back. Thomas [the Enfield police detective in the case] reported that he found a public Facebook page with a photo showing the date “1-6-15” tattooed on what appeared to be Lanza’s back. The detective said medical records show that is the date the girl was scheduled to take the pill to cause the abortion. He added that a later medical examination at Planned Parenthood confirmed that her uterus was empty.

…She [the victim] reported the situation to police in early July 2015, when she was 15.

According to the Journal Inquirer, the now 15-year-old victim also revealed details of the sexual encounter between Lanza and the 12-year-old girl. Lanza was subsequently arrested in April 2016, and according to Deputy Chief Gary Collins, was charged with first degree sexual assault on a minor, fourth degree sexual assault on a minor and two separate counts of risk of injury to a child.

In 2018, Judge Laura F. Baldini gave Lanza a 10-year sentence, suspended after two years behind bars, followed by five years of probation.

Michigan: Lovell Charles Sharpe

A 56-year-old Michigan man was charged by the state with multiple counts of first, third, and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct after accusations that he sexually abused and impregnated a 14-year-old child with learning disabilities and then paid for her subsequent abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility.

According to an appeal filed in the case of Lovell Charles Sharpe to determine if evidence about the abortion and the fact that the victim had no sexual partners other than defendant could be submitted as evidence under the rape shield statute, Sharpe began abusing the teen (referred to in court documents as DM) between December 2013 and January 2014 when she was 13 or 14 years old.  The court documents indicate that Sharpe was staying with the teen while the victim’s mother, referred to as RL, was hospitalized. The child did not inform the mother about the abuse when she returned to the home.

The Court of Appeals record indicates that in October of 2014:

DM went to Henry Ford Hospital after her mother received a letter indicating that DM had an abnormal test result and needed to see the doctor again. At that time, DM underwent a pregnancy test, which came back positive. DM had not been showing any signs of pregnancy, and she and her mother were unaware that she was pregnant before they received the test results. Before she went to the hospital, DM was unaware of how a woman became pregnant, and Henry Ford staff had to explain the process to her.

In November of 2014, according to a brief filed before the Michigan Supreme Court, “Defendant offered to pay and did pay for half of the abortion, without any expectation of being reimbursed.” The court document indicates that, at the time of the abortion, the child’s mother was unaware that Sharpe had allegedly impregnated her daughter and goes on to note that, “RL continued to ask the victim how she got pregnant, but she would not tell her.”

As a result, the victim’s mother took her to Planned Parenthood, where she underwent an abortion:

In his appeal before the state’s Supreme Court, Sharpe’s attorney is challenging whether the abortion should be admissible after the Court of Appeals found that evidence of the victim’s pregnancy, abortion, and lack of sexual partners was admissible. The defense contends the trial court was correct to suppress the abortion and the claim that the victim with learning disabilities was a virgin, prior to the alleged abuse. And, they also contend that because no DNA evidence was collected, the abortion cannot prove the defendant, in this case, Lovell Sharpe, was the the person who sexually assaulted the child.

The fact is, had the hospital or Planned Parenthood viewed the pregnancy of this 14-year-old girl with learning disabilities with suspicion of possible abuse, and actually reported the abuse, DNA would most likely have been collected and preserved during the abortion. But pedophiles know full well that abortions will protect them from criminal prosecution. Abortion benefits sexual abusers.

The state contended that by Sharpe paying for the Planned Parenthood abortion, this was evidence of Sharpe’s “desire to dispose of the evidence of his vaginal penetration of the victim.”

“Defendant would have the trial court exclude both evidence of the pregnancy and subsequent abortion because there is no DNA preserved to confirm defendant’s involvement. But defendant fails to accept responsibility for this lack of evidence, as defendant himself participated in destroying the evidence he claims is required, and now wishes to benefit from his actions.”

Tragically, after the abortion at Planned Parenthood, the court record states that the young teen victim “kept to herself and became really depressed.” In fact, DM remained silent about her abuse until after Sharpe and her mother ended their relationship in April 2015. This was nearly five months after being taken to Planned Parenthood for the abortion. As of the writing of this article, the case is ongoing and is under appeal with Michigan Supreme Court.

 

 

Iowa: Ritchie Lee Lathrop

Ritchie Lee Lathrop was 27 years old when he met his 15-year-old victim, referred to in court documents as C.W.

Lathrop and C.W. began “dating” in March 2005, and soon thereafter they began a sexual relationship, which they kept secret upon Lathrop’s request. Although the record does not say that CW became pregnant, she did go to Planned Parenthood for birth control pills for “protection” while allegedly engaging in sex with the adult predator.

The court document indicates that the sexual relationship continued after the victim visited Planned Parenthood, and did not end for over a year after:

On March 25, 2005, C.W. visited Planned Parenthood. After she obtained birth control pills, she and Lathrop began having sex “at least every other weekend, if not more.” Lathrop gave C.W. a “promise ring” in the summer of 2005. He told her the ring meant, “You’re mine.” Their relationship ended in July 2006, when C.W. broke up with Lathrop.

On December 1, 2006, the state charged Lathrop with third-degree sexual abuse. Following a jury trial which commenced on February 14, 2007, Lathrop was convicted of third-degree sexual abuse.

Alaska: Jason Thomas Rogers

In a case out of Alaska, where Planned Parenthood already believes that all abortions are “medically necessary,” an adult man took his 12-year-old stepdaughter to Planned Parenthood for birth control, and all indications are that Planned Parenthood did not file a report for suspicion of child sexual abuse. As a result, the child was returned into the arms of her abuser to be sexually abused for several additional years. In addition, the predator, Jason Thomas Rogers, was also accused of abusing the victim’s young friend.

Media reports indicate that Rogers was arrested in 2009 on several charges of child molestation. According to Rogers’ criminal court appeal, his step daughter, referred to as E.C. in the court record, testified how “Rogers had sexually abused her from the time she was nine years old until the time she was sixteen.”

It goes on to state that the two engaged in vaginal sex, “after Rogers had taken the precaution of obtaining birth control for E.C.”

The court document notes that the birth control was obtained from Planned Parenthood:

E.C.’s testimony that Rogers took her to Planned Parenthood on her twelfth birthday to get birth control, and that Rogers then began to have vaginal sex with her. The State called a witness from Planned Parenthood to verify that E.C. had come to the clinic and had received birth control.

The court record clearly indicates that police were not notified until the victim had turned 16, several years after the pedophile took the child to Planned Parenthood. According to the record, in 2009 the victim was admitted to the North Star Behavioral Health Center, where she “told a staff member that she had been sexually abused, and the Office of Children’s Services was notified.”

Rogers was charged with 11 counts of sexual abuse of a minor — 10 counts involving E.C., and one count involving her school friend. The jury ultimately convicted Rogers of five counts of sexual abuse.

West Virginia: George Michael Puskas II

A sexual predator out of West Virginia also drove his victim to Planned Parenthood for birth control so he could be assured his sexual encounters would be kept secret.

According to the Department of Justice, not only did former police officer George Michael Puskas II engage in a sexual relationship with the minor victim, but he took several pictures showing the two of them having sex. A review of the civil case filed by the victim and published by the West Virginia Record reveals that, the victim, “first met Puskas in 2001 when she accompanied her mother and brother to soccer games. At the time, she was eight years old, and he was a coach for her brother’s team.”

Then, three years later, according to the lawsuit, the victim claims that:

Puskas began grooming her sexually when she began refereeing soccer games. A year later, the relationship allegedly became physical when, after helping her off the field following an injury to her knee, Puskas said “he loved her and kissed her on the lips.”

…When she was 14 year old, she alleges he expressed his desire that her first sexual experience be with him, and, on an unspecified date, sent a nude photo of himself…. Sometime after her 16th birthday…[the victim] alleges Puskas checked them into an unspecified hotel in Ripley where they had sex…[the victim] says she was fearful of telling anyone about her encounters with Puskas because she alleges he threatened to kill her if she did.

According to a criminal action court order, which quotes from an affidavit submitted by Sgt. David C. Eldridge of the West Virginia State Police, “the victim advised that during the period that she and Puskas were sexually active, he would drive her to a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Parkersburg, West Virginia, so that she could receive birth control injections.”

Image: Pedophile drove victim to Planned Parenthood for birth control Michael Puskas case

The criminal action court order goes on to state that Puskas and the victim, “engaged in sexual intercourse almost daily from March 2010 to April 2011, during a period when she would have been 16 and 17 years of age.”

The victim told authorities that Puskas would use a digital camera which she states was issued to him by the Ripley Police Department to take, “hundreds of digital photographs and several videos of the two of them engaged in sexual activities at different locations, including his residence.”

The court record does not say whether or not Planned Parenthood was suspicious of the couple, but it does reveal, yet again, how pedophiles are comfortable taking their victims to the abortion corporation.

In 2012, Puskas resigned from the Ripley Police Department, according to a report by WSAZ. In 2013, the 31-year-old pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and was sentenced to one year and one day in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release.

Washington State: George Savanah

Earlier this year, Live Action News documented the horrific sexual abuse case of George Edward Savanah, who sexually abused his 14-year-old daughter, impregnating her three times, then took her to two different Planned Parenthood facilities for abortions.

A brief filed in the case reveals:

  • Savanah raped his daughter for the first time on Christmas Eve of 2007, when R was 14 years old.
  • Savanah had sex with R several times a week for the next seven years.
  • When she cried, he told her to “shut up and take it like a woman.”
  • The last time Savanah had sex with R was about a week before Easter in 2014.

The first abortion at Planned Parenthood took place in 2007 and the third abortion occurred in 2012. Let that timeline sink in for one moment. In all those years, while Planned Parenthood appears to have failed to suspect and report the possibility of abuse, this victim was being repeatedly raped by her abuser. In fact, the court record indicates that no one else knew about the young victim’s pregnancies, which only came to the attention of the authorities once the victim, not Planned Parenthood, spoke to her aunt about the abuse, nearly seven years after the victim was taken for her first abortion at Planned Parenthood.

Read more about this horrific case and Planned Parenthood’s complicity in the victim’s ongoing abuse here.

Planned Parenthood should not be exempt from the same scrutiny that recently cost Hollywood actors, producers, sports members, coaches, media personalities, and politicians their jobs, when it has been documented that the organization was complicit in the ongoing abuse of victims. The bar should be far higher for this organization, which receives over half a billion dollars from the taxpayer and millions in Title X funds while continuing to cover for child sexual abusers.

Majority of trafficked women may be forced to abort… but you can help

It is important for the pro-life community to understand indicators of human and/or sex trafficking, which can include multiple abortions or miscarriages. Many pro-life advocates may be on the front lines when a woman is being trafficked. It is also imperative that the pro-life community understand and educate law enforcement and our communities on how abortion facilities, including Planned Parenthood centers, often fail to protect those who are trafficked by covering for the abusers and by not reporting in accordance with the law. When a woman is trafficked, she may become pregnant multiple times and may be forced to abort or made to miscarry, according to experts who work in organizations aimed at ending human trafficking.

Live Action News has documented some of the tragic cases in which Planned Parenthood has covered for child sexual abuse. Just a handful of the horrific cases were highlighted in our most recent Aiding Abusers video series. Watch below:

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 addition to numerous pregnancies, miscarriages, or instances in which women are forced to abort, another indicator of sex trafficking is seen when an older boyfriend or unrelated adult accompanies a young person or female. This adult can be male or female, as many traffickers use older victims under their manipulative and coercive grasp to accompany teens in public. In addition, experts have discovered that frequent use of emergency contraception (such as PlanB or the morning after pill), which can be purchased over the counter or at a Planned Parenthood, can also be a sign that a child is being exploited.

Additional indicators of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), documented by Jordan Greenbaum, MD, — who works with victims of suspected physical/sexual abuse, neglect and sex trafficking — and colleagues, published by the Academy of Pediatrics, include:

  • Child accompanied by domineering adult who does not allow child to answer questions
  • Child accompanied by unrelated adult
  • Child accompanied by other children and only one adult
  • Child provides changing information regarding demographics
  • Chief complaint is acute sexual assault or acute physical assault
  • Chief complaint is suicide attempt
  • Child is poor historian or disoriented from sleep deprivation or drug intoxication
  • Multiple sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Previous pregnancy/abortion
  • Frequent visits for emergency contraception
  • Chronic runaway behavior
  • Chronic truancy or problems in school
  • History of sexual abuse/physical abuse/neglect
  • Involvement of child protective services (especially foster care/group home)
  • Involvement with department of juvenile justice
  • Significantly older boyfriend

In the video below from the Dr. Phil show, a trafficked woman claims she was “allowed to get pregnant because men paid for that.” She also claims she had “several abortions” and “had three that survived.” She stated that after she had her babies, “they were taken away” and she was only allowed to see them as a reward.

 

According to a report by Northwest Georgia News, Dr. Greenbaum told an audience at Georgia Northwestern Technical College recently, “If a health professional suspects a patient is being trafficked — by picking up on certain indicators such as overdoses, suicide attempts, numerous abortions or sexually transmitted infections — it is important for them to proceed carefully in asking questions of the patient in a safe, one-on-one situation.”

The article goes on to point out:

Medical providers may encounter CSEC victims in emergency departments, family planning clinics (including Title X clinics), public clinics or private offices, urgent care centers, or institutional settings. Medical care may be sought for a variety of problems, including sexual assault, physical injury, infection, exacerbations of chronic conditions, complications of substance abuse/overdose issues, or pregnancy testing, contraceptive care, and other reproductive issues…. Some victims have access to medical facilities for routine testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), contraceptive care, and general health care, but others have limited or no access, seeking care only when their conditions are severe….

In addition to the typical elements of a medical history, information may be sought regarding whether the youth has a regular source of medical care or a medical home and his or her immunization status, reproductive history (STIs, pregnancy/abortions, anogenital trauma, number and gender of sexual partners, age at first intercourse, condom use, etc), history of inflicted injuries related to CSEC, physical abuse or dating violence, substance use, and history of mental health signs/symptoms.

An undercover investigation conducted by Live Action at several Planned Parenthood facilities revealed just how much more empathetic Planned Parenthood was toward the actor posing as a “pimp,” than the young girls for whom he was allegedly seeking care.

Below is a compilation reel of that investigation:

 

As reported previously by Live Action News, Dottie Laster, an expert on human trafficking, wrote about Live Action’s videos exposing Planned Parenthood for being willing to commit abortions on trafficking victims:

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.

According to Laura Lederer, former Senior Advisor on Trafficking in Persons for the U.S. Department of State and the founder of the anti-trafficking non-profit Global Centurion, sex trafficked victims are often forced to abort. According to a report by Genevieve Plaster, a research assistant at Charlotte Lozier Institute, Lederer once testified:

55% of the women surveyed had at least one abortion, and 30% had multiple abortions during the time of trafficking. Of these, more than half responded that the abortion was not their choice, and many responded by saying that the pressure from pimps to continue the trade did not allow for the time to carry a baby.

One such case involved one of the largest human trafficking rings in the United States, run by Maximino “Chimino” Mondragon. This modern-day slave owner held as many as 120 women captive, forcing them to work off their smuggling debts.

Maximino Mondragon

According to the Houston Chronicle, “Some of the women were raped and forced to have abortions.” The paper reported:

Chapuseaux, an investigator on the local human trafficking task force, lives with the images from the Mondragon case. He has a picture of a stillborn baby born at a Houston hospital, perfectly formed at five or six months, the result of the abortion-inducing drugs. He said he struggles with the memory of a 17-year-old Salvadoran girl who was purchased from the Mondragon ring by a source working for investigators. She was raped on a mattress in a room behind the bar before the source could pick her up, Chapuseaux said.

Mondragon and his co-defendants worked with Walter Alexander Corea, an admitted smuggler, to bring the women to Houston and force them to work in cantinas on the northwest side, including Mi Cabana Sports Bar, El Portero de Chimino Bar and Huetamo Night Club, prosecutors said. If a customer just wanted a beer, it would cost $2 or $3, depending on the brand. But if the customer wanted the company of a girl, a Corona would cost $13, investigators said. Of that, $9 went to pay down the debt from the smuggling.

When authorities raided the apartments where the women lived on Houston’s northwest side, they found 98 possible victims, witnesses and suspects, officials said. Eventually, the number of victims in the Mondragon case grew to about 120.

Lorenza Reyes-Nunez, aka “La Comadre,” who was accused of performing abortions, took a deal with the government. The Honduran woman was accused of giving pregnant women an herbal supplement that induced abortions, often late in the pregnancies.

One woman who took the drugs in a failed abortion attempt weeks later had a baby born with a hole in his heart and vision problems, investigators said…

In a separate case, the Montana Department of Justice profiled the case of another sex trafficked victim named Adrian:

Adrian was adopted into an alcoholic, drug abusing family. At age five, she was raped by her adopted father and eventually by her adopted brother as well. She was sold by her family and forced to have an abortion at age 11. At 12, she was gang raped by her “father’s” friends in her own home. She remembers eating out of trash cans often while growing up. After Adrian’s adoptive mother and father died, her brother sold her until she was 14, at which time he sold her to a pimp.  She was able to escape at 15 and lived wherever she could. At 17, Adrian was running for her life again.

The child eventually found refuge at a safe house set up for victims of trafficking.

Victims have testified that, in some cases, when taken to abortion facilities or Planned Parenthood centers, the doctors they were taken to may have been clients of their pimps. In a recent report on trafficking victims, one victim told researchers that the reason she was taken to Planned Parenthood was because “Planned Parenthood didn’t ask any questions.”

Women and girls are often taken to abortion clinics by their pimps or a person working for the pimp, a victim of the sex trafficking industry told Facing Life Now TV. Marlene Carson who had become “trusted” by her pimp, told host Brad Mattes that she was responsible for booking abortions when a woman became pregnant and noted that, “The pimps and the traffickers would get fake I.D.’s for the girls and we would take them to have abortions.”

According to Life Issues Institute:

A hired “parent” would take girls to Planned Parenthood for abortions. Marlene says the staff would be well aware the girls were being victimized, but they consistently looked the other way to avoid losing a paying customer in the lucrative business of abortion.

When asked if abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood would turn down the abortions for the girls, Marlene replied, “Oh, no, absolutely not… honestly they had to know that these were teenagers, they were not adult women.”

Marlene said that participating in these abortions traumatized her. She recalled a 14-year-old sex trafficked victim who became pregnant and was being forced to have an abortion: “So, I had the whole house raided — she was rescued,” she said.

Couple this with the prevalence of abortion-inducing medications and potentially abortifacient emergency contraceptives, and you have created an environment in which sexual predators and traffickers can inflict additional harm on women and children by either taking them for abortions or by forcing them to abort with chemicals, beatings or other methods.

Tragically, the pro-life community has begun to understand that sex trafficking and abortion are connected: they both dehumanize human beings, and they both operate under a false assumption that humans are nothing more than property to be bought, sold or killed inside or outside the womb. In part two of this series, Live Action News will share some practical ways that pro-lifers can educate themselves and eventually identify and assist these victims in receiving freedom from captivity and from the harms of abuse and of being forced to abort their babies.

Planned Parenthood ignored another victim’s sexual abuse and multiple abortions

Posted in child abuse, child predator, Planned Parenthood Employee, Planned Parenthood fails to report rape, Tarana Burke with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 5, 2018 by saynsumthn

A November 2017 Court of Appeals document from the state of Washington indicates that a sexual predator raped his daughter over a period of seven years, taking her to Planned Parenthood for multiple abortions to cover his crimes. Planned Parenthood failed to report the incidents, as it has failed to report child sexual abuse in violation of both state and federal law many times in the past.

Live Action News has documented numerous criminal cases (read here and here), showing that Planned Parenthood is covering for these sexual predators. Yet the news media, politicians, and Hollywood stars continue to rally around this abortion corporation, while young sexual assault victims are left unprotected and continue to be abused for years.

In the November 2017 case, court records show that George Edward Savanah, who was convicted of two counts of third degree rape of a child and two counts of first degree incest, sexually abused his daughter, impregnating her three times. He then took her to Planned Parenthood for abortions.

The victim, referred to as “R” in the court documents, testified that her father raped her for the first time when she was just 14 years old.

A brief filed in the case reveals:

  • Savanah had sex with R several times a week for the next seven years.
  • When she cried, he told her to “shut up and take it like a woman.”
  • The last time Savanah had sex with R was about a week before Easter in 2014.

The young rape victim told authorities that Savanah impregnated her a total of three times at the ages of 14, 16 and 17, and each time he took her to Planned Parenthood for abortions to cover the crime. Any pregnant 14-year-old brought in for an abortion should automatically trigger suspicion from a medical provider, including mandatory reporters like Planned Parenthood. But Planned Parenthood, as has been shown time and again, sees no red flags with such victims. After all, Planned Parenthood sees no problemwith a majority of teen girls being sexually active.

As is fairly typical, there was no indication made in the document that Planned Parenthood contacted authorities to report the crime. Instead, as seems to be Planned Parenthood’s pattern, they returned the young rape victim into the hands of her abuser, and Savanah continued to sexually molest the young child for the next seven years.

Abortion #1 (2007)

  • R became pregnant for the first time when she was 14.
  • Savanah, who tracked R’s menstrual periods, was the first to know.
  • He obtained a home pregnancy test for her, and when it was positive, took R to Planned Parenthood for her first abortion.

Abortion #2 (2008)
  • Savanah impregnated R for the second time the following summer, and again took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion.
Abortion #3 (2012)
  • R became pregnant for a third time in October 2012, just before her 18th birthday.
  • This time, Savanah took R to a different Planned Parenthood because he did not want anyone to notice.

Records from Planned Parenthood used in court confirmed that Savanah took “R” to the Planned Parenthood facilities for the abortion procedures. The court record indicates that no one else knew about R’s pregnancies [except two different Planned Parenthood facilities] and that R had never had sex with anyone but Savanah.

The document also states that the sexual assaults only became public once the victim, not Planned Parenthood, spoke to her aunt about the abuse, nearly seven years after the victim was taken for her first abortion at Planned Parenthood. The fact is, had these rapes been reported by Planned Parenthood to authorities in 2007, when the victim was first taken to them, it could have prevented “R” from continued rapes and the trauma of additional abortions.

At sentencing for Savanah’s horrific crimes, the trial court imposed concurrent high-end standard-range sentences totaling 102 months of incarceration and 18 months of community custody. But for Planned Parenthood’s silence, they continue to receive millions of government dollars each year, while this victim is scarred for life.

Sadly she is not the only one betrayed by this taxpayer-funded organization.

In a 2014, a report from the Annals of Health Law, “Health Consequences of Sex Trafficking,” highlighted how victims of sex trafficking have stepped forward to testify about how they were forced to abort their babies, and also stated that they received other medical services from providers who knew they were being controlled by pimps. One victim said that the reason she was taken to Planned Parenthood was because “Planned Parenthood didn’t ask any questions.”

Planned Parenthood has been repeatedly silent in the face of sexual abuse, and yet, the media says nothing.

Case in point: In 2008, Live Action released its child sexual abuse investigation into Planned Parenthood, which found that eight Planned Parenthood facilities in six different states were willing to cover up sexual abuse, including disregarding mandatory reporting laws of suspected statutory rape. Facilities even provided instructions to the undercover investigators on how to circumvent parental consent laws.

Yet, this abortion corporation, which flaunts the law, continued to receive half a billion dollars every year from the taxpayer, while politicians and media alike approved.

In 2011, Live Action’s first investigation was followed by another, which set out to see how Planned Parenthood would respond to sex traffickers seeking services, including abortions, for their underage sex slaves.

In this investigation, Live Action sent a male and female undercover investigator into Planned Parenthood facilities in New Jersey, Virginia, New York, and D.C., posing as pimps seeking health services, including abortions, for underaged girls. Live Action claimed the videos proved Planned Parenthood was in violation of the law, which states that sex trafficking of minors is a crime and anyone who aids or abets a sex trafficker could also be punished with a crime.

And again, the millions in taxpayer dollars kept flowing to Planned Parenthood, despite the fact that government dollars can be removed when providers of Title X Family Planning funds fail to report child abuse.

Planned Parenthood’s response was to simply deny the accusation while claiming they would retain staffers. And they were able to get away with it, because instead of joining with Live Action and demanding an investigation, the media became part of Planned Parenthood’s PR machine, attempting to alleviate all concerns.

Even when, in 2016, Live Action produced FOIA documents disproving Planned Parenthood’s claim that it had contacted authorities to report the pimp, the media turned a blind eye.

Live Action then produced more evidence in the form of a video interview with former Planned Parenthood employee Ramona Trevino, who stated that Planned Parenthood lied when they said they would retrain staffers. Instead, they trained their staffers to spot undercover investigators like Lila Rose:

Planned Parenthood has access to our children through sex education programs in many schools. How can they continue to be trusted when they appear to care so little about children being sexually abused by rapists?

Why has Planned Parenthood been granted a pass from criticism and blame?

Live Action News will continue to expose how the media purposely lends a hand to the child sexual predators and abusers by covering for Planned Parenthood. Maybe one day, the complicity machine will end and Planned Parenthood’s silence breakers will be given a voice.

Abortion staff failed to report three pregnancies on two children resulting in additional assaults

Posted in child predator, Life Dynamics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 8, 2014 by saynsumthn

Two children were raped several times resulting in several pregnancies that ended in abortion. Each time the young victims were sent back into the hands of their abuser because the clinic or clinics where they were taken by their mother failed to report the possibility of abuse.

The story begins in 2008, when a 16-year-old teen gave birth and her boyfriend’s parents realized that the baby did not look like their son, but rather like an adult male acquaintance of the teen’s mother.

A DNA test proved the boyfriend was not the baby’s father, and that’s when the girl admitted that 44 year-old Ricky Jackson was the father. At that point, the boy’s parents reported the information to Ashland Police.

(The girl) had confided in their son that Jackson had raped her when she was 11 years old and that he was very jealous of their son’s relationship with” the girl, Middlesex Assistant District Attorney Katharine Folger said in a court document.

Police arrested Jackson on March 23 of that same year.

The victim also had a sister and the girls, fearful for their safety after Jackson was released from jail, later admitted to police that Jackson had been raping both of them for years.

According to their statements, the sexual abuse began in October of 2002, after Jackson and their mother became involved.

The girls told police that after their mother would go to sleep, Jackson would go to their room and rape them.

According to their testimony, Jackson impregnated the older sister twice when she was 13 and 14 years old, and impregnated the younger girl when she was 12.

The girls’ mother took them to have abortions each time she learned they were pregnant.

According to prosecutors, the mother of the raped children did not know they had been impregnated by Jackson.

The girls told police they never reported the sexual assaults because Jackson had threatened to kill them if they did.

In August of 2008, Jackson was charged with two counts of child rape, violating a restraining order, intimidation of a witness, and one count of rape and indecent assault and battery on a child younger than 14.

Life Dynamics, a Denton, Texas organization which has been exposing how child rapists use abortion to cover their crimes, summarized this case in a report they titled, The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics makes it clear that the failure of abortion facilities to report suspected child abuse is causing children to be repeatedly raped, sometimes for years after their abortions, “In almost every case of adult men having sex with minor girls, the perpetrators are aware that the relationship is illegal and could land them in prison,” Crutcher says, “They also know that one of the most likely ways for them to get caught is for their victims to become pregnant. When that happens, their back up plan is inevitably going to involve abortion. As a result, there is no place within the medical community where underage victims of sexual abuse are more likely to be found than at abortion clinics. The question is: how are these girls dealt with when they show up at those clinics?”

Crutcher continues, “It is important to understand that mandatory reporters are neither obligated nor authorized to investigate these incidents. Whatever conclusions they might reach about the legality or illegality of a child’s sexual activity has no bearing on their obligations as mandatory reporters. If they are presented with evidence of sexual activity by a patient who, by reason of her age, cannot legally consent to sexual activity, their only duty is to report to the authorities. The responsibility for determining whether a criminal act has or has not occurred belongs only to the state.”

According to a summary of the case published by Life Dynamics,”three pregnancies resulted from these assaults and, in each case, their mother took them for abortions. Since there were multiple abortions and the sexual activity continued after each one, it is certain that none of the abortion clinics involved made a report. The rapes did not end until the parents of a boy who knew the girls learned of the situation and called police.”

Life Dynamics has published 60 examples of cases where child sexual abuse was covered up with an abortion and the clinics where the victims were taken failed to report the possibility of abuse.

In a press released issued at the time the group published their report, Crutcher states, “ it is almost universally accepted that sexual predators who target children almost never stop on their own. Instead, they continue until they are stopped by someone else. In reading the cases you will see incident after incident in which girls continued to be raped and sexually abused – sometimes for years – after the abortion clinic where they were taken ignored the state’s mandatory reporting law. But once the situation was eventually revealed to the authorities, the perpetrator was arrested and the abuse ended immediately. This illustrates why compliance with these laws is such an indispensable tool for dealing with our national epidemic of older males sexually exploiting underage girls.”
