Leaked undercover video footage shows a pro-life group talking with a Michigan Planned Parenthood abortion doctor who once described doing a later term abortion while pregnant.

Lida Harris Univ of Michigan

The focus of the video is abortionist Lisa Harris who is described by the pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check as a Assistant Professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Women’s Studies at University of Michigan and is co-medical director of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan, and the Director of University of Michigan’s Fellowship in Family Planning. She is also a member of the board of directors for the Reproductive Health Technologies Partnership.

The never-before-released video footage recorded by the Center for Progress (CMP) video, was leaked by GotNews.com who said they got them after a hacker allegedly uploaded them to YouTube. CMP videos released to date have exposed Planned Parenthood’s horrific baby parts operation prompting some members of Congress to question their $528 million dollar a year funding by tax payers.

In a 2008 paper entitled, “Second Trimester Abortion Provision: Breaking the Silence and Changing the weeks Discourse,” Harris describes performing an abortion on a preborn baby at 18 weeks while she herself was 18 weeks pregnant.

Harris writes, “I went about doing the procedure as usual.

“I used electrical suction to remove the amniotic fluid, picked up my forceps and began to remove the fetus in parts, as I always did. I felt lucky that this one was already in the breech position – it would make grasping small parts (legs and arms) a little easier.”

The abortionist continued:

“With my first pass of the forceps, I grasped an extremity and began to pull it down. I could see a small foot hanging from the teeth of my forceps. With a quick tug, I separated the leg. Precisely at that moment, I felt a kick – a fluttery “thump, thump” in my own uterus. It was one of the first times I felt fetal movement. There was a leg and foot in my forceps, and a “thump, thump” in my abdomen.”

Lisa Harris

To recap, the now Planned Parenthood abortionist who was 18 weeks pregnant wrote that she, “felt a kick – a fluttery “thump, thump” in my own uterus” as while dismembering another woman’s 18 week preborn baby.

But wait…there is more.

In the same paper, Harris later writes about a 23 week abortion she performed and how she had to assemble the parts of the baby:

“As a third-year resident I spent many days in our hospital abortion clinic. The last patient I saw one day was 23 weeks pregnant. I performed an uncomplicated D&E procedure. Dutifully, I went through the task of reassembling the fetal parts in the metal tray. It is an odd ritual that abortion providers perform – required as a clinical safety measure to ensure that nothing is left behind in the uterus to cause a complication – but it also permits us in an odd way to pay respect to the fetus (feelings of awe are not uncommon when looking at miniature fingers and fingernails, heart, intestines, kidneys, adrenal glands), even as we simultaneously have complete disregard for it.”

Adding that after she dismembered a 23 week preborn baby she, “rushed upstairs to take overnight call on labour and delivery.”

The image you may have gotten from Harris is that she is some sort of Frankenstein. Her words conjure up pictures of a mad serial killer who can repeatedly kill without feelings of empathy for her victims.

When you meet Harris, you do not get the image of a heartless killer who would cherish her baby’s life while destroying another. In the video below, you get a sense that Harris is a decent person who simply cares for the health of women. That is, if you did not know with her own words what Harris does to these children.


In the footage released by GotNews.com, Harris speaks with an investigator from the Center for Medical Progress who asks her how far abortions are performed at her Planned Parenthood facility. Harris tells CMP, “19 and 6” meaning 19 weeks, 6 days. She also tells CMP that she has been involved in fetal tissue research in the past with, “independent / individual researchers” who needed either fetal tissue or organs.

Lisa Harris Planned Parenthood Center for Medical Progress

Harris, who asked in her paper mentioned above, “What normal person does this kind of work?” told CMP that all “research project” at the Planned Parenthood affiliate she is with go through their VP of medical services. She also says that, “All research projects pay – pay for the effort but there’s never been like a per specimen fee.”

Harris appears distracted during the conversation but made it clear to CMP that she was most concerned about the “research regulations” that “get in the way.” She said her interest in using aborted children for research was that women be allowed to “feel good” about their abortion.

Despite wanting women to think they are doing something good when they have an abortion, Harris once admitted that there is violence in an abortion even suggesting that the label of abortionists as “butchers” might be accurate:

There is violence in abortion, especially in second trimester procedures…Instead of acknowledging what is on the placards, abortion rights activists may say in response to them that they are fake pictures or that abortions don’t really look like that. However, to a doctor and clinic team involved in second trimester abortion, they very well may. Of course, acknowledging the violence of abortion risks admitting that the stereotypes that anti-abortion forces hold of us are true – that we are butchers, etc.,” she wrote.

NAF and NARAL vested interest in attacking pro-lifers over Planned Parenthood vid

Posted in NARAL, National Abortion Federation, Planned Parenthood sells aborted baby parts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 27, 2015 by saynsumthn

The National Abortion Federation and NARAL have come on board the Planned Parenthood talking points parade to ignore the words of two top abortionists and blame the Center for Medical Progress filmmakers who caught them bragging about a gruesome body parts operation.

NARAL Planned Parenthood

BAF Planned Parenthood

But, truth be told, both NAF and NARAL are in bed with the two Planned Parenthood docs, and have an investment that would motivate them to preserve now questionable reputations.

The National Abortion Federation is considered by some as the professional voice of the abortion industry. I guess if a federation of child killers could be credible, this would describe NAF.

NAF Clinical policy Guide 2015 abortion

In NAF’s 2015 Clinical Policy Guidelines

From the document:

    The mission of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) is to ensure safe, legal, and accessible abortion care, which promotes health and justice for women. An important part of this work is to develop and maintain evidence-based guidelines and standards as well as to educate providers in the latest technologies and techniques. NAF’s programs make it possible for women to receive the highest quality abortion care.

    Like its precursors, the 2015 edition of NAF’s Clinical Policy Guidelines (CPGs) establishes clinical policy guidelines, which are developed by consensus, based on rigorous review of the relevant medical literature and known patient outcomes. These guidelines are intended to provide a basis for ongoing quality assurance, help reduce
    unnecessary care and costs, help protect providers in malpractice suits, provide ongoing medical education, and encourage research.

Any guess just who has authored some of this alleged “relevant medical literature?”

Planned Parenthood’s baby parts abortionists!

Mary Gatter Denorah Nucatola Planned Parenthood

Dr. Deborah Nucatola head of Planned Parenthood’s medical services department bragged how she will crush above or crush below the desired child’s organ to appease “buyers” of the fetal body parts.

Planned Parenthood’s Medical Directors’ Council President Mary Gatter described on tape how she would modify the abortion procedure, performing a “Less Crunchy” technique to obtain more “whole specimens.” Gatter then joked about wanting a Lamborghini.

And…both are referenced in NAF’s footnotes:

In addition, NARAL has “honored” abortionist Mary Gatter with an award:

And NARAL has also used Mary Gatter in papers they penned to attack pro-life bills.

This one opposed the Ultrasound Informed Consent Act, which would have required all women seeking abortion services
undergo an ultrasound.

Interestingly, Gatter opposes women seeing an ultrasound do they can make an informed decision, but she will use an ultrasound to carefully kill an unborn child in an abortion with a “less crunchy” manner in order to procure more “specimens.”

Will footage of babies being harvested be shown as Planned Parenthood fears?

REPUBLISHING FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG / H/T Jill Stanek

Planned Parenthood letter suggests pro-life group that produced sting vids catching them bragging about harvesting baby parts may have documented those babies being processed after abortion.

Planned Parenthood letter babies processed

Blogger Jill Stanek has revealed a stunning admission from Planned Parenthood currently embroiled in an aborted baby body parts harvesting scandal.

Stanek quotes from a Planned Parenthood letter submitted to the House Energy and Commerce Committee dated July 20,2015.

Stanek writes, “In that letter, Planned Parenthood seeks to get in front of further scandal by speculating what it thinks will be on future damaging investigative videos by CMP. This includes an admission that CMP investigators may have video of actual tissue procurement at a PP facility.”

That section reads:

    At this point, we do not know the full extent of Biomax’s illicit conduct. We believe that on at least one occasion a representative from Biomax was shown a highly sensitive area in a clinic where tissue is processed after abortion procedures. While this work is standard and essential during any abortion procedure, any filming in such an area would be an extremely serious invasion of our patients’ privacy and dignity.

Planned Parenthood letter aborted baby body parts

In the latter addressed to Fred Upton of House Energy and Commerce Committee, the largest provider of abortions which was founded in racist eugenics goes on to state:

    We also believe that in at least one interaction at a Planned Parenthood facility,the Biomax representative asked questions about the racial characteristics of tissue donated to researchers studying sickle cell anemia, apparently seeking to create a misleading impression

planned-parenthood-video-crush-b

Planned Parenthood seems eager to refer lawmakers to another Planned Parenthood doctor rather than their top medical director, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who was caught offering to alter abortion procedures to procure the desired organs from aborted babies, where she was willing to “crush above” and “crush below” the child’s tiny organs.

Planned Parenthood writes:

    Your letter asks that we address “consent procedures,” “practices for collecting fetal tissue,” the “guidance or criteria … Planned Parenthood provides to its affiliates,” and other related issues. The best person to address these issues is Dr. Raegan McDonald-Mosley, who is the Chief Medical Officer of Planned Parenthood. She will lead our briefing team. We will consult with you to find a time that accommodates your staff and Ranking Member Frank Pallone’s staff.

Last week the Center for medical Progress released the first video from a three year under cover investigation into the marketing of aborted baby body parts by Planned Parenthood.

Today, a second video was released.

In each case, the callous way that the Planned Parenthood officials spoke about the babies they killed with abortion was clear.

A charge has been made by lead investigator for CMP, David Daleiden, that Planned Parenthood is illegally selling the body parts of these babies, which Planned Parenthood has denied.

As a result, investigations into the abortion giant’s grisly operation have been opened in several states.

Daleiden said he has much more information yet to release.

Congresswoman gives emotional response to horrifying Planned Parenthood vid on House floor, “Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity?”

A stirring speech on the House Floor from a US Congresswoman decrying Planned Parenthood’s ghoulish selling of aborted baby body parts has been virtually ignored by the media.

U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-AL) represents Alabama’s Second Congressional District.

Rep Martha Roby speaks Planned Parenthood

Following an undercover video conversation between the Center for Medical Progress and a top Planned Parenthood abortionist revealing how the tax funded organization chops up the babies they kill with abortion to harvest their body parts, Rep. Roby gave an emotional response.

The hidden camera video surfaced July 14,2015 showing Planned Parenthood senior director for medical services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing in chilling detail how abortion procedures can be altered to preserve hearts, lungs and livers so they can be sold.

While standing next to an enlarged screenshot of the video showing one of the more shocking exchanges, Rep. Martha Roby rose on the House Floor and said passionately:

“Mr. Speaker, I rise to raise awareness about a disturbing development.

Rep Martha Roby speaks Planned Parenthood 2

“Today video surfaced of Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Planned Parenthood’s senior director for medical services, admitting – in fact bragging – about the harvesting and trafficking of fetal organs after abortions.

At this point in the speech, the Alabama House member’s voice begins to quake as she expresses what she saw in that Planned Parenthood video.

To those who haven’t seen the video, I urge you and encourage you to watch it. But you need to be forewarned,” she advises.

The casual and callous way that she details how babies can be killed in such a way that their tiny hearts, lungs and livers can be taken and sold for profit is simply horrifying,” Rep. Roby says fighting back tears.

Deborah Nucatola Planned Parenthood body parts lower extremeties

She continues:

    To quote Doctor Nucatola “We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver… so I’m not gonna crush that part,”

    I’m gonna basically crush below, I’m gonna crush above, and I’m gonna see if I can get it all intact.”

Rep Martha Roby speaks Planned Parenthood 3

“This is one of those moments that – as a nation – we have to ask ourselves, “who are we?

“Are we really going to tolerate this inhumanity?

“Are we going to look the other way while babies are brutally killed and organs are harvested for profit?”

“These aren’t specimens they are babies for goodness sake!”

“I may only have one minute today. But I promise Mr. Speaker we’re not done talking about this, I yield back,” Rep, Roby said forcefully.

Rep. Roby is expressing what so many Americans are feeling after watching that tape. But, the media will ignore her. Had she been outraged that the Little Sisters of the Poor Catholic Nuns were not going to be forced to offer contraception in their health plans, the media would be all over it.

Had Rep. Roby given a speech about how a male talk-show host ridiculed her position on birth control, the media would do flip flops to air the speech.

If she had slipped on a pair of pink tennis shoes prior to her speech to filibuster a late term abortion ban, the media circus would have been stunning.

But, because Rep. Roby articulately spoke out for unborn babies and challenged the abortion media darling Planned Parenthood, despite her being a woman, she will be silenced or ignored.

But….not here!

Way to go Rep. Roby – you have my full respect!

Her words later with others: “No one is above the law”!

Planned Parenthood’s abortion market is 40% says doc who pitched dangerous clinic to buyers of baby parts

Center for medical progress

A Planned Parenthood doctor has admitted they have 40% of the abortion market and has recommended a notorious abortion clinic to buyers of aborted baby baby parts.

Today Life Dynamics published a blog revealing a shocking investigation which exposes Planned Parenthood’s selling of aborted baby body parts.

But, Planned Parenthood may not be alone in this grisly business of chopping up the babies they kill through abortion.

In fact, in the full video footage uploaded by the Center for Medical Progress, Planned Parenthood Federation of America Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola suggests to “actors” posing as buyers from a human biologics company that they should inquire with other abortion chains.

The Planned Parenthood worker then suggests the Family Planning Associates (FPA) which has locations around California.

FPA bakersfield-ca

She also states that she has 67 Planned Parenthood affiliates which could offer fetal tissue specimens to a variety of research organizations.

In discussing the prices, abortionist Nucatola said baby parts average between $32.00 to $100.00. (6:57)

“You know, I’m going to throw a number out. I would say, it’s probably anywhere from $32 to $100.00 depending on the facility and what the space involved. It just has to do with space issues, are you sending someone there that’s going to be doing everything, or is there staff that could be doing it. What exactly are they going to be doing? Is there shipping involved? Or is some one coming to pick it up?”

“So, you know, I think, everybody just wants it to – it’s really just about – if anyone were to ask them well what do you do for this $60.00? How could you justify that? Or are yo basically just doing something completely egregious?”

“So, it just needs to be justifiable.”

The investigative “actors” ask for locations that are “local” and will do abortions into the second trimester. (10:30)

“We have some affiliates that use Digoxin and or some other feticide…So, in general you’re probably going to be able to get to 20 weeks. It’s going to be very unusual to get a patient that’s above 20 weeks, I would say at the Planned Parenthood’s in California,” Nucatola says.

She does state that older babies are usually available from New York facilities.

The other thing, have you been speaking with Family Planning Associates at all in California?” (12:30)

Nucatola specifies that Planned Parenthood’s Orange Count and LA affiliates are already working with someone else.

Which is why I think Family Planning Associates [FPA] is an option because, I mean they go all the way to Bakersfield all the way as far as Orange County. You have a pretty broad range. They definitely go to 18 weeks…” she states. (14:20)

11150536_10152832575417507_6582790217461439376_n

FPA, formerly the Family Planning Associates Medical Group, has had numerous abortion injuries which have been documented by pro-life counselors outside their facilities.

Nucatola said that offering the aborted baby parts to researchers helps the abortion clinics because, according to the abortionist, patients are requesting it.

Patients will call and make an appointment and say I’d really like to donate my tissue…In general, in health care, a provider isn’t going to begin to offer a service until there is a demand. And, there is a demand.” (54:00)

Women know that this is something that they can do,” the Planned Parenthood doctor states.

She then suggests that the “actors” spend their money getting women to want to donate the fetal tissue.

The other reason affiliates see this as a good thing is – it’s just less tissue that they need to worry about,” she states. (56:30)

“There are issues with disposable fetal tissue. Probably the biggest company that does this in the country is Stericycle. Anti-choice groups got the names and the addresses of the board of directors…But, that has raised an issue,” she said.

After a back and forth about the expense of disposing of both pathological and biological waste the conversation turns back to FPA and the market share Planned Parenthood holds in the industry.

“I’m telling you, Family Planning Associates? They may go for the money. Uh, private providers…they are definitely private clinics and that’s why exhibiting at NAF is great…Depends on the market. Most markets their volume is not to be compared to Planned Parenthood’s volume. We have 40% of the market in the whole country. Not that we’re trying to – we just do. ” she says. (1:05:11)

Undercover calls to ALL Planned Parenthood and NAF abortion clinics reveal a cover-up of child predators

813 UNDERCOVER CALLS TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND NAF ABORTION CLINICS NOW UPLOADED

Tapes show hundreds of Planned Parenthood, NAF clinics covering up sex abuse
by Kathleen Gilbert
• Wed Apr 13, 2011 15:06 EST

April 13, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The pro-life group behind a nationwide survey of Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation (NAF) clinics in 2002 has made available never-before-published raw audio and transcripts of hundreds of investigative phone calls that they say prove the abortion industry’s widespread complicity with sexual abuse of minors, in violation of state laws.

In an effort similar to the widely publicized work of undercover pro-life group Live Action Films, Life Dynamics nine years ago identified 906 U.S. facilities affiliated with either Planned Parenthood or NAF. Of these, the group was unable to contact 93, but launched a comprehensive investigation of the other 813 by having an actor pose as a 13-year-old caller asking for an abortion to cover up a pregnancy caused by a 22-year-old “boyfriend.”

In many of the calls uploaded this week by Life Dynamics, the investigator was coached by clinic employees how to avoid detection by parents or authorities, encouraged to conceal the boyfriend’s age, and told to lie about names and addresses. In other calls, clinic workers reassure the girl that the facility will not report abuse, while many abused the judicial bypass process in states where parental notification was required for an abortion.

“[Judicial bypass] is being automatically suggested to any underage girl who simply doesn’t want to tell her parents for any reason whatsoever or for no reason whatsoever. In the case of our caller, this was true despite the fact that she never said anything to indicate that her parents would become abusive or violent over this situation,” reported the group.
“We don’t need to know how old your boyfriend is first of all because it sounds like we would have to report it, ” said a clinic worker at the Planned Parenthood in San Luis Obispo, CA, when confronted with the boyfriend’s age.

“What do you mean report it? Who would you have to report it to?” the caller asked. “Because he’s over 18 and you’re 14. So as long as you don’t tell us, everything’s fine,” said the worker.

A worker at the Potomac Family Planning Center in Rockville, MD, asked the girl, “Do you look 14?” and admitted, “I hate to say this, but we don’t ask for identification, so whatever someone puts down on their age is what we go by.”

The group’s findings largely correspond to conversations recorded undercover and published by Live Action Films, whose investigators were told by abortion clinic workers in multiple states how to avoid parental consent laws, how to lie about the age of their sexual abuser, and even how to attain abortion and other services for illegally-trafficked underage prostitutes.

Life Dynamics notes, “All 50 states have statutes in place mandating that any healthcare worker must report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to a designated law enforcement or child protective services agency.”

The group also points out that a girl as young as thirteen is not legally capable of giving consent for sexual activity, making the girl’s case sexual abuse by default.

“An analogy is the situation in which someone is brought into a hospital emergency room with a gunshot wound. The circumstances of this incident may or may not be criminal, but it is not the healthcare worker’s place to make that determination,” the group explained. “His or her only role is to report the incident to the authorities and this duty does not change regardless of what the patient says. The same thing applies here.”

When the information was first released, opponents said the tapes exposed only a few rogue employees and that the phone calls only indicate that workers would say whatever was necessary to get the girl to come into the clinic, where more information would be gathered. Life Dynamics called the allegations “farfetched.”

While 10 percent of the facilities seemed to comply with the law and sought to learn more about the girl’s situation, Life Dyanmis said, “when you listen to the other 90 percent, what you find is that virtually nothing is said that could even be remotely construed as an attempt to get the girl to the facility so a report could be made. In fact, almost everything that was said during those conversations would work against that objective.”

From Life Dynamics: Child Predator.com Website:

Mark Crutcher, President of Life Dynamics

All 50 states have statutes in place mandating that any healthcare worker must report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to a designated law enforcement or child protective services agency.

In February and March of 2002, Life Dynamics conducted a nationwide undercover phone survey of Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities. Our goal was to document their level of compliance with these state-mandated reporting statutes. This was not a random survey but a universal one. We identified 906 facilities in the U.S. as being associated with one or both of these organizations and we attempted to contact each one. Some were no longer in operation and others used one appointment line to service multiple facilities. In the end we were able to contact representatives of 813 of the original 906, including facilities in every state except Mississippi.

Our caller portrayed a 13-year-old girl who was pregnant by a 22-year-old man and wanting an abortion in order to conceal this sexual relationship from her parents and the authorities. In every call the ages of both the girl and the man she was involved with were introduced into the conversation and, in virtually every case, repeated at least once. Additionally, the caller never said anything to suggest that her parents would become violent or abusive if they discovered her sexual activity. It was always made clear that the motivation for the abortion was to conceal this sexual activity.

To document our investigation we made recordings of all 813 calls. (In Texas it is legal to record telephone conversations as long as one party to the conversation is aware of the recording.) Included here are the actual recordings of these calls accompanied by written transcripts. In order to accurately evaluate them, it is essential to understand the following principles:

(1) Because underage girls are not legally capable of giving consent for sexual activity, any sexual activity by an underage girl is, by definition, without her consent. On its face, that is reasonable suspicion of child sexual abuse.

(2) Seeking an abortion, pregnancy test, birth control (condoms, pills, etc.), or treatment for a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is evidence of sexual activity. Therefore, whenever any of these services are sought by a minor, a reasonable suspicion of child sexual abuse is created and the state-mandated reporting requirement is triggered.

(3) The responsibility for determining whether the circumstances of a child’s sexual activity are criminal or not lies solely with the state. Healthcare workers have no legal authority to investigate the incident, make assumptions about it, or draw conclusions about it. Therefore, anything the girl or anyone accompanying her (including parents, guardians, or relatives) says about the situation is totally unrelated to the healthcare worker’s legal obligation under the reporting statute. An analogy is the situation in which someone is brought into a hospital emergency room with a gunshot wound. The circumstances of this incident may or may not be criminal, but it is not the healthcare worker’s place to make that determination. His or her only role is to report the incident to the authorities and this duty does not change regardless of what the patient says. The same thing applies here.

(4) Patient confidentiality and the physician-patient privilege are irrelevant because (a) physicians are legally immune from civil or criminal penalties for violating patient confidentiality or the physician-patient privilege when they report suspicions of child sexual abuse, and (b) the authorities can investigate reported suspicions of child sexual abuse by speaking to the victim and other witnesses without the physician being involved. (These principles are well known among abortion providers. At Life Dynamics, we have a recording of Planned Parenthood’s corporate legal counsel advising a national convention of their affiliates that the obligation to comply with mandated reporting laws supercedes patient confidentiality in every state and in every circumstance.) It should also be remembered that law enforcement entities routinely secure patient medical records when conducting investigations involving possible illegal activities at nursing homes, Medicare and Medicaid violations, insurance fraud, etc.

(5) The fact that a minor girl may be lawfully allowed to secure an abortion, pregnancy test, birth control, or STD treatment without parental knowledge is unrelated to mandatory reporting. Remember, mandatory reporting deals with reports made to the state not to parents. In effect, a healthcare worker’s duty to a minor child or that child’s parents is a separate issue from their duty to the state.

(6) A healthcare worker’s duty to report to the state about the possible sexual abuse of a child does not prevent, interfere with or even delay that child’s ability to access these services since, in virtually every case, the report will not be made until after the service has been rendered. Again, the only relevant issue is that, when a minor seeks these services, that is evidence of sexual activity by someone who is not old enough to consent to sexual activity. At that point, a reasonable suspicion of child sexual abuse exists and, once that legal threshold is crossed, a report to the state is mandated.

In evaluating these calls, be aware of conversations in which the caller was:

* given advise on how to avoid detection by parents or authorities
* told what she should say or not say when she came to the clinic
* encouraged to lie about or conceal her age or her boyfriend’s age
* told to give fictitious names, phone numbers or address
* instructed to be more careful about what information she gave out and to whom
* ignored or interrupted when introducing her age or the age of her boyfriend
* warned that if someone found out about this situation her boyfriend could go to jail
* told to go elsewhere because she had already provided them too much information
* told that the ages of the parties involved are irrelevant
* told that the facility has no interest in her age or the age of her partner
* told that they do not verify ages or check IDs and would accept what she told them
* told to just keep her mouth shut at the clinic and no one would ask any questions

Sometimes, the misdeeds of the facility are purposely subtle. In addition to the issues already mentioned, be on alert for calls in which:

* after identifying the situation as illegal and/or statutory rape, the clinic worker subsequently agrees that the facility will conceal the crime
* after saying that they are “technically” or “legally” required to report this situation to the state, the clinic worker reassures the caller that the facility will not report
* after identifying the situation as illegal and/or statutory rape, the clinic worker agrees to facilitate the ongoing criminal activity by providing birth control without making a report; our caller is often told that her boyfriend can come with her to pick up the birth control or that he can even pick it up without her being there; in other words, despite having evidence that a sexual crime is being committed against a 13-year-old child, they are willing to conspire with the perpetrator to cover-up the crime and then offer to provide him the means by which he can continue the abuse (birth control with no report)
* the clinic worker initially expresses concern for the child, and may even suggest parental involvement, but in the end agrees to violate the law and conceal the situation
* the clinic worker handles the call like a matter of routine, clearly indicating that the clinic encounters this situation frequently, and that they deal with it by ignoring the mandated reporting laws; one example of this are those calls in which this girl’s circumstances appear to have little or no impact on the clinic worker’s response
* there is no response to the danger that the child is in, even though the facts of a statutory rape are clearly presented
* the child’s dilemma is not addressed, with the sale of the service obviously being the clinic worker’s paramount concern
* statements such as, “The way we handle these cases is …” signal that (a) the situation is common, and (b) the clinic worker is stating clinic policy not her own personal approach (this is especially relevant when the clinic worker puts the call on hold, conferred with someone else, then came back and agreed to conceal the situation)
* the failure to report is justified by making it sound as though it is in the best interest of the child to “keep all this confidential”
* the failure to report is justified by demeaning or discounting the influence of parents or the authorities
* statements by the clinic worker are carefully worded in order to insulate them against claims of failing to report
* even among clinic workers who display discomfort or concern with the situation, they continue to sell the service
* when confronted with the dilemma of reporting, they advise the girl to go to another facility and then advise her what to say or not say at that facility in order to work around the reporting requirement

In states with parental involvement legislation in place, abortion proponents always justify the need for a judicial bypass option in order to address the so-called “hard cases” in which minors will be abused if forced to inform their parents about their pregnancies. However, our investigation documented that this is not the way it is actually being used. Instead, it is being automatically suggested to any underage girl who simply doesn’t want to tell her parents for any reason whatsoever or for no reason whatsoever. In the case of our caller, this was true despite the fact that she never said anything to indicate that her parents would become abusive or violent over this situation. And remember, in this specific incident, judicial bypass was not being introduced as a way to keep the child from being abused in the future, it was being introduced as a way to cover-up the fact that the child was already being abused.

If you are in a state with parental consent legislation, be aware of situations in which the caller was:

* told about judicial bypass at the moment she stated that she didn’t want to tell her parents and before she had given any legitimate reason why she didn’t want to tell them
* reassured about how quick and simple the judicial bypass process was
* advised that, during the judicial bypass hearing, it would be best not to mention the age of the person who got her pregnant or lie to the judge if he asked about it
* advised to go to another city where the judges are “more cooperative” with judicial bypass
* given specific advise for circumventing parental involvement legislation such as letting her boyfriend or another adult take her out of state without her parents knowing about it

When we began releasing this information to the public, some of our opponents said that all we uncovered was a few rogue employees who were operating outside of Planned Parenthood or National Abortion Federation guidelines. Remember, however, that this was not a random survey but a universal one. We called every Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facility in the country and made contact with almost every one. Under those circumstances, it is preposterous to suggest that when 90 percent do one thing and 10 percent do the opposite, it is the 90 percent who are in violation of the organization’s accepted and normal standards of behavior. The only logical conclusion is that the responses we received are the standard policy and practice of these organizations.

Another contention made by these groups is that our investigation simply reflects the fact that when their counselors have a sexually active underage girl on the phone they say whatever is necessary to get her into the clinic. The claim is that once she’s actually at the facility they will report her regardless of what they told her over the phone.

Anyone who listens to the tapes of these calls will find that assertion just as farfetched as the one about rouge employees. It is true that almost 10 percent of the Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities we surveyed said they would obey the mandatory reporting laws, and in those conversations there were times when it appeared that the counselor was indeed trying to either lure the caller into the facility or get enough information to make a report. However, when you listen to the other 90 percent, what you find is that virtually nothing is said that could even be remotely construed as an attempt to get the girl to the facility so a report could be made. In fact, almost everything that was said during those conversations would work against that objective.

That was especially apparent in calls where they suggested practical steps for her to take that would effectively eliminate any possibility of a report being filed. For example, there are calls in which they said it would be best for her to lie about her age, name or address when she came to the clinic. Some employees went so far as to reassure her that the clinic does not check IDs or verify ages. Sometimes, while she would be giving details about her situation, the counselor would interrupt and tell her not to say anymore or repeat that information. Others told her that she had already revealed too much for their clinic to be able to help her and suggested that she go to another facility and not give them so much information.

Obviously, none of this is the kind of rhetoric someone would use if they were earnestly trying to get this girl into their clinic to make a report. Instead, it was clear that what they were doing is giving her a “heads-up” and some of these counselors actually made that very point during the call.
