The latest set of abortion statistics have come out for Illinois that indicate Planned Parenthood and friends “covered up” at least 290 cases of child rape during the year 2004. Local media in the state seemed to miss this during their coverage of the latest statistics.
In Illinois, as in most of the civilized world, the age of consent means that girls under a certain age cannot legally consent to sex, and hence, any intercourse with them is rape. Illinois requires that medical professionals report any cases of child abuse to DCFS. In a case, documented here, where after being audited by a pro-life organization over the phone to see if they would follow mandatory reporting laws, about 90% of clinics appeared to indicate they would not report child rape to authorities. They tried to make a distinction between a medical professional and someone answering the phone, in this case it is obvious that a medical professional was involved, knew the girl’s age, and choose not to follow their obligations under the law to report. Contrary to their claims, no investigation is required by Planned Parenthood; they simply have to recognize the girl’s age and make a phone call so there can be an appropriate investigation. Instead, they choose to make money on the deal by charging for the abortion and then concealing the fact that there was a crime. This is Planned Parenthood’s apparent business model.
At the same time they are making a profit by covering up the rape of little girls by dirty old men, they insist that parents should not be allowed to interfere and have no right to know that their children are getting abortions. In fact, in a case of clear kidnapping, rape, and fraud by a child rapist’s mother, Planned Parenthood had the mother of the daughter who was raped arrested for trying to prevent the abortion. Planned Parenthood will even write prescriptions to non-existent minors they have never seen in what they even admit is against the law.
Planned Parenthood can proudly boast on their own website that they cover up cases of child rape. The irony of this portion of the pro-choice debate is that the only who gets a choice is the rapist who can choose to cover his tracks.
