Pro-Life Group’s Report: Planned Parenthood Enabling Rape, Sex Trafficking, Child Abuse

A just-released investigation from pro-life organization Live Action accuses Planned Parenthood of complicity with statutory rape, sex trafficking, and child abuse–all funded by American taxpayers.

“An organization this unscrupulous and dangerous – an instrumental prosecutor of the ‘war on women’ we hear so much about in the news cycle . . . should not receive even a cent of American taxpayers’ income,” said Live Action founder Lila Rose in a statement Wednesday morning.

Rose and her investigators posed as underage girls seeking abortions to hide sexual relationships with older men at nine Planned Parenthood clinics throughout the country. In all but six states, some kind of parental involvement or notification is required before a minor can have an abortion; Planned Parenthood staffers at seven of the clinics investigated counseled the girls on how to circumvent these laws.

In Indiana, where children under 14 cannot consent to sex under any circumstances, a girl posing as 13 impregnated by a 31-year-old man was told, “I didn’t hear the age. I don’t want to know the age.”

The report also contains evidence of complicity with sex-selective abortions–admittedly, still legal in the vast majority of states. (RELATED: Obama opposes ban on sex-selective abortions)

Live Action, which has been organizing and filming “sting operations” since 2010, has been criticized for its tactics by both those on the right and left, though their exposes have successfully led to the investigation and closing of an Alabama clinic and the firing of at least one employee. (RELATED: Planned Parenthood: Employee featured in the Live Action sting has been fired)

Approximately 45% of Planned Parenthood’s $1.2 billion annual budget comes from government funding.
