Parenthood Planned, Girlhood Lost

I read this piece from Rhymes with Right and just shook my head.

"The accusation has been around for years – Planned Parenthood abortion facilities fail to report cases of child abuse as required by state law. Now there is proof."

Planned Parenthood is under fire after one of its employees was recorded encouraging a student - who was posing as a pregnant minor - to lie about her age in order to obtain an abortion without the abortion provider having to report the "statutory rape" to the police.

Lila Rose, an 18-year-old sophomore at the University of California Los Angeles, visited a Planned Parenthood clinic in the city, posing as a 15-year-old impregnated by her 23-year-old boyfriend. . . . .

In covertly-filmed video of the meeting between Rose and an unnamed Planned Parenthood employee, the staffer is heard to tell Rose: "If you're 15, we have to report it ... If you're not, if you're older than that, then we don't need to."

"Okay, but if I just say I'm not 15, then it's different?" Rose asks.

"You could say 16," the worker replies, later adding, "Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don't know anything."

C pointed out that Lila Rose had gone undercover before to expose pro-abortion bias at UCLA's health services.

Information on the Planned Parenthood incident originally reported by the Cybercast News Service.

UPDATE: Planned Parenthood apparently plans to sue for being outed, according to the Recliner Commentaries. For some PP statutory history, please read an earlier bit by Recliner Commentaries.
