Planned Parenthood covers up, again
Posted on Feb 20, 2009 | by Staff
WASHINGTON (BP)--A third Planned Parenthood employee has been shown on video tape seeking to cover up alleged child sexual abuse.
The latest video report by Live Action, a California-based organization led by pro-life college students, shows a nurse at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Tucson, Ariz., telling a supposed 15-year-old pregnant girl she should not bring her adult boyfriend to a judicial hearing to waive parental consent rights for an abortion.
"Is he not a minor?" the nurse asks the 15-year-old. When a friend accompanying the girl tells the nurse the father of the child is 27, the nurse says of a hearing, "I wouldn't take him with me, no. I mean, don't take him."
The 15-year-old actually is Jackie Stollar, a member of Live Action, and the friend accompanying her is Lila Rose, a 20-year-old UCLA student who is president of Live Action.
The latest video, released Feb. 3, is one more part of a multi-state, hidden-camera investigation by Live Action at Planned Parenthood clinics last summer. Two Planned Parenthood workers at separate clinics in Indiana lost their jobs in December after video showed them covering up alleged child sexual abuse.
