Planned Parenthood of Memphis caught covering up statutory rape

Lila Rose and Live Action have just released video #5 in their Mona Lisa series of undercover investigative sting videos of Planned Parenthoods across America.

Lila Rose, 20-year-old UCLA student, entered Planned Parenthood's Memphis Health Center undercover and told a counselor that she was 14 years old, pregnant by her 31-year-old "boyfriend", and needed a secret abortion so her parents would not find out about her sexual relationship with the older man. Tennessee Code 37-1-605 requires health professionals to report suspected cases of sexual abuse of minors to law enforcement immediately.

Although TN law is clear PP should have immediately reported the suspected sexual abuse, the counselor told Lila she wouldn't and then doubled her offense by telling Lila to lie about her perpetrator's age to a judge so she could get a bypass and avoid her parents finding out as well.

This is the sixth Planned Parenthood clinic implicated in a developing multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate suppression of evidence of statutory rape.

Surprise Surprise! Planned Parenthood is consistant in their abuse of the law. But I am sure the pay off to politicians is great enough to "buy off" enforcement of the law.
