Planned Parenthood Conducts Clinical Trials on Minors

By Susan Brinkmann, OCDS Staff Journalist The American Life League (ALL) released a recent survey that reveals that at least 10 Planned Parenthood clinical trials involving birth control pills were conducted on underage girls as young as 13. According to an ALL press release, 28 Planned Parenthood affiliates were involved in 33 clinical trials – some government funded – 10 of which involved young girls. Thirty-one of these trials occurred in the last seven years with many still ongoing. Two of the trials in which girls as young as 14 participated dealt with getting girls to take birth control consistently by sending them text message reminders. Other Planned Parenthood clinical trials involved African-American girls as young as 13, and to increase the use of “emergency contraception” among girls as young as 14. “In most states, minor girls involved in sexual activity is considered sex abuse and is illegal,” said Jim Sedlak, vice president of ALL, who conducted the review. The nation’s largest abortion business, is also involved in trials on medical abortion techniques, birth control techniques, pain reduction during abortion, sterilization, and IUD insertion, and a trial assessing the safety and efficacy of a new “emergency contraceptive” known as Ella. Planned Parenthood affiliates conducting clinical trials on minors include Planned Parenthood of Georgia, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, Planned Parenthood of Central North Carolina, Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, Planned Parenthood of Maryland, Planned Parenthood of Shasta-Diablo, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, Virginia League of Planned Parenthood, Planned Parenthood of New York City, and Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas. “As Planned Parenthood continues to spread its tentacles throughout our country’s health care establishment, it is imperative that it be met with resistance at every turn,” Mr. Sedlak said.  “We encourage everyone who lives in the area serviced by the Planned Parenthood affiliates mentioned in this report to launch educational campaigns against this organization.” Other Planned Parenthood affiliates involved in the trials are listed in the review, which is available at:  © All Rights Reserved, Living His Life Abundantly®/Women of Grace®
