Secret video shows Planned Parenthood clinic worker apparently skirting abuse-report law
Catholic World News - June 30, 2009
A video produced by an undercover investigator has captured a Planned Parenthood counselor at an Alabama abortion clinic promising to "bend the rules a little bit" to suppress a report of statutory rape. Lila Rose of Live Action, posing as a 14-year-old, told the clinic manager that she had been impregnated by a 31-year-old "boyfriend." Although Alabama law requires reporting of suspected case of statutory rape, the Live Action video shows the manager accepting the girl's remain quiet about it.
Live Action has provided videos of several undercover visits to Planned Parenthood clinics around the US, showing a pattern of willingness to cover up sexual abuse.
