Prosecutors in Arizona have been given a copy of the unedited video made by an undercover investigator who found Planned Parenthood workers apparently covering up a reported sexual abuse of a child.
The announcement comes from Live Action Films, whose president, Lila Rose, has been investigating Planned Parenthood policies and activities for several years.
Rose, a UCLA student, released a statement today that the “full, unedited footage” of her recent investigation into the Tucson Planned Parenthood clinic has been forwarded to the offices of the Arizona attorney general and the Pima County attorney.
“The tapes show Planned Parenthood covering up a reported case of sexual abuse of a 15-year-old girl, and were made public last week on the Live Action’s website,” the statement said.
Rose, the undercover pro-life activist who visited the Tucson Planned Parenthood business, explained she was 15 and her boyfriend was 27 but was told how to go to court to obtain an abortion without having her parents notified. She was encouraged not to have her 27-year-old “boyfriend” along when she appeared in court, despite state law requiring authorities to be notified in such cases.

A spokeswoman for the Planned Parenthood business in Tucson told WND at the time officials “are aware” of the film. Spokeswoman Jo Nestor said, “We’re looking into it.”
Live Action officials say while the abortion business has promised an internal “review,” there has been no acknowledgement of wrongdoing.
Rose said Arizona authorities should follow due diligence as have authorities in Indiana. There state officials initiated investigations into Planned Parenthood over videos made there, and, facing a public scandal, Planned Parenthood fired one worker in Bloomington and suspended one in Indianapolis.
“Planned Parenthood’s repeated claims of ‘internal review’ are woefully insufficient,” Rose said of the Arizona situation, “especially since this organization has a record of violating state laws that protect young girls.
“Arizona authorities must thoroughly investigate the illicit behavior at Planned Parenthood clinics,” she said.
“We must not forget that young girls are at serious risk. Planned Parenthood’s disregard for mandatory reporting laws is prolonging sexual relationships between victimized minors and predatory adult males,” she said.
Rose’s organization also has posted online an interactive map that displays recorded cases of violations at Planned Parenthood clinics across the nation. The map is accessed at this link.
The Sanger Center in Tucson is named after Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, who, according to Answers.com, once suggested Congress set up a “Parliament of Population” whose goal would be “to raise the level and increase the general intelligence of population.”
The webside source said when Germany adopted the principles of eugenics to create a “master race,” Sanger failed to denounce the Nazi tactics. In a letter, she wrote, “The campaign for birth control is not merely of eugenic value, but is practically identical with the final aims of eugenics.”
Sanger believed there are instances when prevention of child-bearing should be forced.
“The undeniably feeble-minded should, indeed, not only be discouraged but prevented from propagating their kind,” she said, according to the website.
