Here’s an interesting article about a woman who goes to Planned Parenthood clinics posing as a thirteen year old girl asking for an abortion. When she says the father is thirty one years old the PP employee tells her to lie, and because Indiana mandates parental consent for underage girls to have an abortion, the abortionist suggests the girl goes to Illinois where she can get an abortion without parental consent.
If America’s biggest abortion mill breaks the law in this case, how many more like this are happening across the country? Apart from the moral issue of abortion, this is grossly unprofessional. Encouraging underage clients to lie? Assisting them in breaking the law? Shielding pedophiles from prosecution? Not taking action to protect the girl from a predatory older male? Then they would bleat, “But we’re doing this for the poor girl who has got herself into trouble.” The whole thing stinks.
The investigator who made the films says the first action to be taken is for all federal funding to be withdrawn from Planned Parenthood while a formal inquiry can take place. But will this happen? Will the girls who have been tossed back to their predatory older males sue Planned Parenthood? Will the press portray the whole sleazy abortion industry as a vast, corrupt conspiracy of crypto-eugenicists?
Don’t bet on it.
Wow, I just had a major flash of actual understanding on the church teaching on ABC. I get it. It’s gut-wrenching to think about… but I get it. Thank you for posting, Father.
Father, what the media can’t or won’t do —the Light of Truth will illuminine the under-belly of this evil through efforts such as yours throughout the blogosphere.

I saw Lila Rose on O’Reilly, and she points out the reason she went to the clinic in Indiana in the first place was becuase this sort of behavior was well documented in PP clinics throughout the nation, including a few LAWSUITS in Ohio.IMO, they are aiding and abetting criminal activity, and are actively covering up the crime and should be prosecuted as such.
I am from Ohio and yes, PP is being sued — but so far not successfully. An underage girl (I think she was 14) was taken to PP for an abortion by her coach, who was the father of the child. She gave the staff a cell phone number, which belonged to the coach, and said it was her father’s. The staff made no attempt to determine who owned the cell phone, but just called and notified the girl’s “father.” When the real parents discovered what had happened, they sued — and requested that PP reveal the number (not the identity) of underage girls it gave abortions to with “parental notification.” PP refused, and the judge ruled for them, saying that it had no bearing on the case. They are appealing, on the grounds that it may reveal a pattern of abuse, which if course it would.Would you want your 14-year-old daughter to go to PP for an abortion with her soccer coach??? And would you want PP to give her one on the basis of her request and a cell phone call to an unidentified person? Even many pro-abortion people are outraged by this case.But sadly it should not be unexpected. The PP people have a worldview that makes this acceptable. They believe that sex is a right for anyone who “feels mature enough” for it, and that abortion is a right as well. Why should we expect them to regard parental notification laws, and even age of consent laws, as anything but a nuisance that is not worth bothering about?
Thank you for this post — I will be quoting and linking to it. The comment about PP and their worldview got me thinking . . . . PP is (unfortunately) in sinc with much of America’s current “world view” — the popular view. Those of us who disagree must pray hard, walk our talk and work together for change.God help us.One of the little (but important – in my opinion) changes I have made is to NOT drink Starbucks coffee as they are matching contributors to PP. It also gives me a way to pass on the word about PP and how they have infiltrated so much of our society.
Just a technical point, but a pedophile wouldn’t be attracted to a post-pubescent 14 year old girl — that would be a Ephebophile See http://www.childmolestationprevention.org/pages/diffephebophile.html
Father, you’re right about this one. PP is clearly in the wrong. That’s an awful mentality for them to have, and yes, it does provide cover for older men who exploit minors. You and I disagree on many things, but I am with you on this one for sure.
“The PP people have a worldview that makes this acceptable.”Indeed. Once your worldview includes killing babies, by what standard would it particularly exclude anything else?
Here’s a question that perhaps you all can help me out with. I posted a link on my Facebook account to this video from Fr. Heilman’s blog. My atheist brother posted back a video interview about a priest who admitted to pedophilia. I deleted the comment, which of course he said he was “disappointed” by and then he posted the video on his own Facebook page. He said his intent was not to suggest that all priests are pedophiles, because they certainly are not. But to prove that every “organization” has it’s bad seeds and perhaps this woman was just a bad seed of PP. I know, not sure I can prove it, that this goes on at PP much more than just this woman. But any thoughts as to how to enter that argument logically?

Excellent point, kkollwitz.It seems that the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood, as well as many of its supporters, have embraced a form of extreme legalism that is the work of Satan himself.“We are deeply concerned about the content of the video.”Really.Some of us are “deeply concerned” about the women Planned Parenthood purports to support. And we pray that they stop killing their unborn children.
