A national pro-life student organization has released a video on YouTube exposing two Planned Parenthood clinics in Winston-Salem and Charlotte, North Carolina in the act of covering up statutory rape of young girls.
According to a press release from Students for Life of America (SFLA), two college aged women volunteered to enter two Planned Parenthood clinics in North Carolina and pose as underage girls ages 15 and 14 who just had unprotected sex with their mother’s live-in boyfriend who was in his 30s. Each girl told the clinic workers that the boyfriend suggested she come there to get the Morning After Pill.
According to N.C. Gen. Statue 7B-301 and 7B-101, this information was enough to trigger North Carolina statutory rape reporting laws, obligating any person who learned of this story to report the crime to authorities.
In both visits, Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledged that what was happening to the girls was statutory rape and in one case even repeatedly admitted that they were required to report the incident.
However, after the visits, Students for Life of America filed North Carolina Public Records Requests to find out if the Planned Parenthood locations had reported the crimes, and discovered that neither crime had been reported.
In addition to covering up the statutory rape of these young girls by failing to report, both Planned Parenthood clinics were willing to help the underage girls get on birth control without their parents’ knowledge, which would only serve to prolong the abuse while covering evidence. One staffer in Charlotte even said to the girl, “You can do it now,” and set an appointment for the minor to obtain birth control the following week.
Further, both clinics told the girls that anyone over the age of 18 could simply go to a drug store and buy the Morning After Pill for them, giving the girls’ rapists a tool to further cover their crime of rape.
“These videos are simply shocking,” said SFLA’s Executive Director, Kristan Hawkins. “That Planned Parenthood staffers acknowledged the girls were being raped and then did not report the crime is horrific. They allowed these girls to go home to their rapists and even confirmed that their rapists could get the Morning After Pill for them to cover their crimes.”
Tom McClusky, Vice President of Government Affairs for the Family Research Council, responded to the investigation, “As long as Planned Parenthood puts their fealty to abortion on demand above protecting young girls from statutory rapists then investigations such as the ones done by SFL will be needed.”
