Abortionists: Here's how to evade reporting law

Another staff member for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest abortion industry player, has counseled a “pregnant 13-year-old” to avoid mandatory statutory rape reporting laws, suggesting the patient look into the states that surround Indiana.
In Indiana, sex involving an adult and a 13-year-old is a felony, and any time a minor under 14 is involved, law enforcement must be contacted immediately. However, the video released by LiveActionFilms.org reveals a counselor suggesting how the requirements can be avoided.
It’s the second such revelation in just the past few days.
WND reported earlier when the pro-life activist making the videos, 20-year-old Lila Rose, went undercover into a Bloomington, Ind., Planned Parenthood facility where a “nurse” ignored the apparent felony and coached the “patient” to protect the assailant.
The “nurse” in the video later was disciplined by Planned Parenthood, although it was just the latest in a series of videos released by Rose that have documented the activities of Planned Parenthood. She first revealed similar results from a Planned Parenthood facility in California, and also released a series of reports when Planned Parenthood officials agreed to accept a donation that would fund the killing of an unborn black baby.
The newest video shows the Planned Parenthood counselor suggesting the investigator, again Lila Rose posing as a 13-year-old, check out nearby states to avoid Indiana’s mandatory reporting requirements if she wants an abortion.
The video is embedded here:
The Indianapolis video was made the same day as the earlier one from the Bloomington Planned Parenthood, LiveActionFilms said.
The film shows Rose entering the clinic and reporting her age as 13, and expressing concern about the trouble her pregnancy could cause for her boyfriend.
“I can understand that. We have laws to follow here in Indiana. And you have to get (parental) approval if you’re a minor. And we have to follow the laws,” a Planned Parenthood employee said.
But she also declared, “We don’t ask anything about your boyfriend. We don’t really care about who, what the age of the boyfriend. It’s consensual. It’s your choice.”
The patient then is turned over to a “counselor,” who hears again of the concern about trouble for the boyfriend.
“Well, a lot of people will say, well, you know, yeah, he is over such and such. And you can do statutory rape and whatever. But it’s going to be in the papers. So most people will threaten stuff and don’t go through with it, ok,” the counselor says.
She continues: “Surrounding states don’t have parental consent.”
“What state should I go to,” the patient asks.
“I can’t tell you any more,” continues the counselor. “I said surrounding states, so think about the states that are surrounding Indiana and do some research.”
An earlier video featuring Rose, who recently was named a winner of a Life Prize award presented by the Gerard Health Foundation, revealed a Planned Parenthood counselor suggesting to the 13-year-old how to answer if questions about her boyfriend arise.
“You know. You’ve seen him around. You know he’s 14. He’s in your grade and whatever. OK. So that’s that problem solved,” Planned Parenthood’s counselor said.
Then the counselor suggests how to get an abortion without a parental signature by going across the state line to Illinois.
“Now I’m going to give you a piece of paper, because I cannot tell you this. OK. But I can show you this,” she said.
She shows the patient a piece of paper with the information about an Illinois clinic circled. The patient responds, “So in Illinois.” Then the nurse circles all of the other clinic listings on the page to conceal her efforts to direct the child to the Illinois clinic.
Staff with LiveAction said the video, a part of the Mona Lisa project, demonstrates “the routine lawlessness of abortion providers at Planned Parenthood.”
Rose cited the status of Planned Parenthood as a tax-exempt non-profit that made more than $100 million in profit in 2007 and has a budget of $1 billion, nearly one-third of which comes from taxpayers.
The Texas-based pro-life group Life Dynamics previously conducted an extensive undercover project in which an adult volunteer posing as a 13-year-old called every Planned Parenthood clinic in the U.S., saying she was pregnant by a 22-year-old boyfriend. Almost without exception, the clinics advised her to obtain an abortion without her parents’ knowledge and told her how to protect her boyfriend, who would be guilty in any state of statutory rape.
