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.

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.

Savannah rapes daughter three abortions at Planned Parenthood

Father impregnates daughter three times and takes her to Planned Parenthood

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 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.

    Sexual Abuser used abortion planned parenthood

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 FOIA Letters Planned Parenthood sex trafficking

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.

“We Don’t Report” Illinois abortion clinics continue sexual abuse cover-up

Posted in Abortion and Sexual Assault, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion Clinics, child abuse, child predator with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 28, 2014 by saynsumthn

I stumbled onto an older story from Jill Stanek’s blog.

The blog post was uploaded a few years ago and covered the incidents of not reporting sexual abuse by the abortion industry, specifically in Illinois.

Stanek Illinois Blog Screen

Stanek begins her Blog this way:

Many pro-lifers don’t know that before Lila Rose came Mark Crutcher.

In 2002 Crutcher’s organization, Life Dynamics, conducted a comprehensive sting of every Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation clinic in the U.S.

Placing phone calls from Texas, where it is legal for one party to tape conversations without another’s knowledge, an actress portraying a 13-yr-old who had been impregnated by her 22-yr-old “boyfriend” told clinics she needed an abortion to keep her parents from finding out they were sexually involved.

In all, the actress spoke with staff at 813 PP or NAF clinics in all 50 states. Adult sex with underage children is illegal in every state, and PP and NAF clinics are mandated reporters. Yet an appalling 91% of all clinics contacted expressed a willingness to help cover up the statutory rape.

In IL that figure was 100%. All 21 clinics contacted, 12 of which were PPs, offered to aid and abet the adult perpetrator by helping cover up his rape of a child.

Stanek’s blog alerted me to this YouTube video (below) of call excerpts from the 12 Planned Parenthood facilities which Life Dynamics’ caller contacted. The video was put together by Andy Moore from clips of the Life Dynamics tapes and reveals just how mainstream the failure to report child sexual abuse is within Planned Parenthood centers in Illinois.

Listen here:

What is of additional interest is that Life Dynamics has just updated their Child Predator project with a new report of documented criminal cases entitled: The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse. The report was written by Mark Crutcher and Renee Hobbs and researched by Carole Novielli.

Unfortunately since 2002, we have come to learn that this cover-up of sexual pedophiles by the abortion industry continues.

In fact, just looking at Illinois, Life Dynamics details the following cases:

Bishop, Robbie L. / IL

In 1997, Bishop, 35, began having sex with “Cara” – his 12-year-old stepdaughter. At 14, Cara became pregnant and Bishop took her to a Chicago abortion clinic where he ordered her to sign-in using a fictitious name. It is evident that no report was filed by the clinic since the assaults on Cara resumed two weeks after the abortion and continued until December when she went to the police. It was later discovered that, not only did the abortion clinic staff fail to report the situation, they also supplied the victim with birth control pills. In 2005, an Illinois court gave Bishop 30 years in prison for criminal sexual assault. [The Supreme Court of Illinois, docket #99403, 1-20-2006 ]

Now un-named abortion clinics would be difficult to have tapes on- but as Jill points out- of the 21 tapes that Life Dynamics recorded in Illinois which included 4 in Chicago, 100% of them stated they would cover for the abuser and not tell anyone.

Then we come to one that Life Dynamics did expose in 2002 and who, unfortunately, went on to cover for a sexual pedophile in 2006.

Jeffrey_Chesier

Cheshier, Jeffery / AR

In November of 2006, Cheshier, 41, was arrested and charged with repeatedly raping “Allie” starting when she was 13 years old. Investigators also discovered that, in March of that year, Cheshier had taken her to the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City, Illinois, where he forced her to have an abortion. Given that Cheshier resumed raping Allie after the abortion, and continued to do so for another eight months, it is evident the clinic staff did not file a report. Following his arrest, he was released on $50,000 bail and was later found dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. [KSDK News 5, 11-15-2006 • St. Louis Dispatch, 11-17-2006 • World Net Daily, 11-18-2006]

Hope abortion Illinois

In 2002, Life Dynamics caught this same abortion clinic telling their caller that they would NOT have to report her sexual relationship with an adult man – here is a portion of that call:

CALLER: Okay. The thing is that I’m really worried because I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend told me that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he old enough to take care of everything, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: No. We’re not going to tell anybody. There’s no parental consent in the state of Illinois and there’s no age.

CLINIC: Well, when you schedule your appointment, hon, we’re going to ask you for your address and your phone number and your Social Security number and stuff like that, but it’s strictly confidential. It doesn’t ever leave this office.
CALLER: So there’s nothing that he has to fill out?
CLINIC: There’s nothing that he has to fill out at all. But you do need to have your payment for a money order, Master Card or Visa.
CALLER: Oh, okay.

Listen to the complete call here !

Perhaps if this abortion clinic had been held to account after Life Dynamics’ 2002 report, they would not have allowed the sexual abuse of another child to remain silent.

Life Dynamics has just documented the hiding of sexual abuse inside abortion and Planned Parenthood centers is a nationwide problem. Their Child Predator report, part 2, is available for review here.

Court papers list witnesses for Planned Parenthood case

Planned Parenthood faces criminal charges in Johnson County.
BY BRAD COOPER
The Kansas City Star

The nation’s first criminal case against Planned Parenthood now seems to center on which experts the court believes.

Court papers filed this week revealed that Johnson County prosecutors are counting on two experts in making their case that Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri failed to determine the viability of a fetus and performed late-term abortions.

One doctor is identified as Thomas Murphy Goodwin, a professor of maternal-fetal medicine at a “major university medical center.” The other is identified as Mark Gillett, a “family practice doctor.” Both physicians expect to testify that the fetuses were viable.
