Do abortion clinics cover-up statutory rape? Do they protect the predators who prey on young girls? Life Dynamics’ study says “Yes”

A few weeks ago we posted the story of a Fort Wayne, Indiana abortionist who was being investigated for failure to report on an abortion he performed on a 13 year old girl.  Sexual relations with a girl of that age is considered statutory rape and in this doctor’s case he did not make a timely report.

That led us to do a bit of research about how many rapes – and rapists – of young girls are being covered up by the abortion industry. So we went to the Life Dynamics website where it posted the results of an investigation it conducted in this matter.  First, some interesting statistics Life Dynamics reported:
§  Between 60 and 80 percent of girls 15 and younger who become pregnant were impregnated by adult men.

§  As the age of the victim – the young girl – goes down, the age of the perpetrator goes up.

§  It is now more likely that a junior high girl who becomes pregnant will become pregnant by an adult rather than by someone close to her own age.

§  The average age of men who father children with girls 13 and under is now higher than the average age of men who father children with 18–year-olds.
Life Dynamics then conducted a “covert survey” of approximately 800 abortion clinics around the country. In the survey a caller to an abortion clinic claimed she was a 13-year-old-girl who became pregnant by her 22-year-old boy friend.  She claimed she needed an abortion so her parents would not find out she was sexually active.  Here, according to Life Dynamics, are the results:
“Even though many of these clinic workers openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and that they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal sexual activity.

“Some employees of these organizations even coached our caller on how to avoid detection, how to circumvent parental involvement laws and what to say or not say when she came to the clinic. In a significant number of instances she was encouraged to lie about - or conceal - her age or her boyfriend's age or to give false names.
“One of the clinic representatives who acknowledged that she was required by state law to inform at least one of our caller's parents in writing that their daughter was seeking an abortion, went on to advise our caller that the best way to hide this from her parents was to use a fictitious address when she checked-in for her abortion.

“During these calls it was not uncommon for the Planned Parenthood or National Abortion Federation representative to warn our caller that if someone were to find out about this situation her boyfriend could go to jail. In those situations it was unmistakable that our caller was being instructed to be more careful about what information she gave out and to whom. It was also not uncommon for the employee to interrupt our caller when she started talking about her age or the age of her boyfriend. On those occasions the obvious indication was that the employee did not want to hear this information.
“In other calls the facility employee advised our caller that she had already provided too much information for them to be able to help her. In those instances she would often be given the number of another family planning facility and encouraged to tell a different story when she called there. At times, this advice was quite specific with the employee telling her exactly what to say - or not say - to the people she talked to at the second facility.

“In states requiring that parents be informed when their underage daughters seek abortions, the law allows those girls to have abortions without their parents being notified if they get permission from a state judge. This is called a judicial bypass. During our calls to states with parental involvement legislation in place our caller was often informed about this option while also being instructed not to voluntarily tell the judge about the age of her boyfriend. In some instances these employees even encouraged her to lie to the judge if specifically asked for that information. Other employees advised her that neighboring states have no parental involvement requirements and that if she went there and either concealed or lied about the age issue, she would have no problem getting a secret abortion. In other words, these people were suggesting to a minor girl that she travel outside the state in order to cover up a crime that was being committed against her.
“In some calls she was given instructions on how to circumvent the parental involvement requirement altogether, even to the point of suggesting that she bring someone along to sign for her who looked old enough to impersonate one of her parents. In one particularly egregious case, the clinic worker lamented the fact that because our caller's boyfriend was only 22 he wouldn't look old enough to pass as her father. She went on to suggest that our caller look for an older person to help her out. When our caller said her boyfriend had a 50-year-old uncle who would do it, the employee said that would be okay as long as the uncle was instructed to not say anything while at the clinic to indicate he was not really her father. The employee stated that the uncle could even drop by, sign the papers, and leave before she actually came in for the abortion, and that the clinic's notary public would notarize the uncle's signature for the state's required documentation - despite knowing that it was a fraudulent representation.

“In a number of cases the employee would not react at all to the age issue, causing us to question whether it had registered with them or not. At that point our caller would simply ask outright if her age or her boyfriend's age was a problem. Generally what she got was a very cavalier "wink and nod" type of response.
“Sometimes she would be told that, technically speaking, the clinic was required to report this activity to the state but that if the caller would either lie about her age or just keep her mouth shut when she came in for her abortion, no one would ask any questions. Several times she was told that the facility had no interest in the ages of the parties involved or that they do not verify ages or check IDs and would accept whatever she told them at face value. One employee went so far as to tell her that if she came in with the cash she could be any age she wanted to be.

“Unfortunately, during these calls, responses like those described here were neither rare nor isolated. In the final analysis, virtually every Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facility we contacted was willing to illegally conceal the sexual abuse of this 13-year-old girl.”
And, of course, the Obama Administration is making it easier for sexual predators to prey on young girls; it has, among other things, made “Plan B,” the “morning-after” pill available over the counter to girls of any age, a certain boon to any older man who needs to cover up an illicit affair with a pre-teen girl.

Today Obamacare goes into effect with approved plans covering abortion (they said it wouldn’t) and rules that force all organizations, even Catholic groups and those opposed, to provide free contraception and abortifacients to their employees.
So much for religious freedom; so much for protecting our daughters.  Thanks, Obama.  Thanks, Democrats who pushed for this and to protect Planned Parenthood, and gave, in prayer, their thanks to God for abortionists at the Iowa State Capitol last month. And thanks to all you good Catholic voters who see abortion as a political – not a moral or societal – issue and voted for these folks.
