Planned Parenthood protects rapists


For the past several weeks, it has been difficult to search for “Planned Parenthood” on the internet without finding an article about how it has refused to report suspected rape and molestation of minors to the authorities. Headlines include:


·        Planned Parenthood failed to report incest

·        Planned Parenthood didn't tell, suit says

·        Planned Parenthood concealing crimes?


Even the Wednesday STOPP Report has included items about this scandal in the past couple of issues.


We decided to devote the entire issue of this week’s Wednesday STOPP Report to bring you breaking information on this important subject.



A history of Planned Parenthood’s illegal activity


There is no way of telling definitively how long Planned Parenthood has been protecting rapists. But here is just a sampling of the events pulled from American Life League’s archives:




In 1998, a 12-year-old girl in Glendale, Arizona, who was raped by her foster brother, had an abortion at Planned Parenthood and PP never reported the rape to authorities. Finally, when the same girl went to Planned Parenthood six months later for another abortion, PP did notify authorities and the foster brother was arrested and convicted. The girl sued Planned Parenthood for failing to report the rape the first time and a judge ruled that PP was negligent for not initially reporting the rape. Court documents report the girl reached a settlement in the case.





In 1999, an 11-year-old girl in California went to Planned Parenthood of the Golden Gate. She told Planned Parenthood that she had been raped, but asked PP not to tell anyone, including her parents. Of course, the law is clear; regardless of the girl’s desires, when an 11-year-old is raped, there are mandatory reporting requirements. In December of 2005 Planned Parenthood of the Golden Gate featured a letter from the girl on its website. The girl wrote in praise of Planned Parenthood for helping her keep her rape secret. After American Life League exposed this letter and publicly denounced Planned Parenthood’s inaction the letter was immediately taken down. (However, the letter can still be found on the internet archive here.)




In November 2004 a 16-year-old-girl was brought to a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Cincinnati and forced to have an abortion by her father. The girl says she told the Planned Parenthood employee that her father was forcing her to have sex. Planned Parenthood did not report the abuse and the father continued to rape the girl for another year and a half. On May 9, 2007 the girl filed a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio for refusing to report the rape. The same Planned Parenthood affiliate is also being sued for not reporting the rape of a 14-year-old girl by her soccer coach.




A 22-year-old man was arrested this month in New London, Connecticut for raping a 14-year-old girl and getting her pregnant three times in six months. Newspaper reports say it was the girl’s mother that alerted authorities, not the abortion facility. Although newspaper accounts do not identify the abortion facility involved, Mark Crutcher of Life Dynamics in Denton, Texas told the Wednesday STOPP Report that he has a copy of the police reports and it was a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Norwich, Connecticut.



Life Dynamics’ important work


Mark Crutcher has been at the forefront in calling attention to the outrageous activities of Planned Parenthood in protecting those who prey on our children.


In 2002, he conducted an undercover investigation to determine how widespread the practice of Planned Parenthood protecting child predators is. He had a young woman, posing as a 13-year-old girl, call over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the country, telling the clinic personnel that her 22-year-old boyfriend got her pregnant and asking how she could get an abortion without getting her boyfriend in trouble.


In all 50 states clinic workers are required by law to report known sexual activity between a 13-year-old and an adult, yet the Life Dynamics investigation found that 91 percent of the time, Planned Parenthood advised the girl on how to protect the child predator.



Planned Parenthood tries to intimidate young student reporter


As Lila Rose, a student at UCLA, heard about all these accusations against Planned Parenthood, she decided to conduct her own undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood in her community. On several occasions she visited various abortion clinics posing as a 15 year old who, she told clinic staff, was impregnated by her 23-year-old boyfriend. Her conversations with the staff were recorded by a video camera that she concealed in her bag.


Once again, Planned Parenthood staff tried to help her cover up what was described as a case of statutory rape. Under California law, PP was required to report her sexual activity if she was 15, but would not have to report it if she was 16. In one such recording, a Planned Parenthood employee can be heard instructing Rose to “say you are 16,” and then instructed her to lie on the forms: “Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don't know anything."


When Planned Parenthood was confronted in public with this taped violation of California law, its response was to attack Lila. Shortly after the videos and articles exposing Planned Parenthood became public Planned, Parenthood threatened legal action against her. According to California law it is illegal to record people unless all members being taped are aware of it. In compliance with the law, Rose has handed over the videos to Planned Parenthood and has removed them from the internet.


Incredibly, Planned Parenthood in California disregards the laws that protect minors, but insists on adherence to laws that protect Planned Parenthood. Obviously, its priorities are all messed up.



What can you do?


We believe that this entire subject will be key in the eventual destruction of Planned Parenthood. All of us who fight Planned Parenthood rightly emphasize the huge numbers of children it kills and the way it steals the souls of our teens. But its protection of child predators is something that surpasses both of the others in terms of encouraging people to oppose Planned Parenthood.


Just this week, American Life League’s Rock for Life Ventura chapter was outside a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Los Angeles. The members report that even avidly pro-abortion individuals are upset with Planned Parenthood about its protection of child predators.


If we focus on this issue, we can hasten the demise of Planned Parenthood. Here are some of the things we encourage you to do:


  1. FOCUS – While maintaining all your ongoing efforts against Planned Parenthood, every organization fighting PP should identify one person who will focus on the child predator issue.
  2. KNOW – Get the background information on this whole effort at and be prepared to answer questions. Your organization should also know the mandatory reporting laws in your state. Every state has them.
  3. RESEARCH – Find out about the Planned Parenthood facilities in your area. How many customers under the age of 15 does it claim to have? How many reports has it filed with the authorities about the sexual activities of these customers? If you need help getting this information, just send us an e-mail at Put “researcher” in the subject line and we will get you in touch with a professional researcher who has already helped a number of groups get this data.
  4. FUNDING – Find out if your local PP clinic gets funds from Title X or other government programs. All these programs require that PP adhere to all state mandatory reporting rules. If PP is not reporting, it will not only lose all future funds, but it will have to pay back past funds received.
  5. TAKE ACTION – Based on everything you find out, you should take action to bring Planned Parenthood to justice. Among the things you should do:
    1. Document your findings in a report that can be given out to interested people.
    2. Educate your local community through press releases, press conferences, letters to the editor and fliers. American Life League has a one-page flier that you can download here. You can make copies and distribute them. You can even run the flier as an ad in your local newspapers (including the popular “shoppers” news).
    3. Ask your local district attorney, in light of the growing evidence around the country of Planned Parenthood’s involvement in protecting rapists, to launch an investigation of your local Planned Parenthood to ensure it is properly reporting.
    4. Ask the government agencies that are funding Planned Parenthood to conduct a thorough audit of your local Planned Parenthood to ensure it is complying with all mandatory reporting requirements.
    5. If your local Planned Parenthood clinic receives Title X funding (you can see the list of Title X recipients by state here), ask your elected members of Congress to request the Department of Health and Human Services to conduct an audit.
    6. Inform parents in your area that, if they find out their under-age children are receiving contraceptives or abortions at Planned Parenthood, they may be able to file a report. Send them to


American Life League will be working closely with Life Dynamics on this effort and we encourage everyone who is serious about fighting Planned Parenthood to take action in your local communities.


We will bring you further information as it develops.




Behold the Lord, Jesus Christ, who tries so hard to get our attention
