Student reporter Lila Rose posed as a 15 year old, entered a Santa Monica Planned Parenthood and announced that a 23 year old man had impregnated her, according to the Advocate, a student magazine at UCLA. Planned Parenthood staff informed Rose that this constituted statutory rape and then encouraged her to â€œfigure out a birth-date that works,â€ to obtain the abortion and avoid getting the man in trouble with the police. The Planned Parenthood staff assured Rose that if she said she was 16 or older, they wouldnâ€™t have to report the rape.
â€œCaliforniaâ€™s mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape are supposed to protect pregnant minors,â€ said Lila Rose, Editor in Chief of The Advocate. â€œUnderage girls are being targeted by predators, and Planned Parenthood is busy covering up the evidence. How many other rapes has this one clinic covered up?â€
My views on abortion are somewhat liberal (Oh dear God did I just say that!). I am pro-choice just as long as it isnâ€™t used as a form of birth control but I am against partial birth abortions. But what type of person tells an underage pregnant girl not to report the statutory rape and tell her to lie about her date of birth! The laws are put into place to protect minors and Planned Parenthood is suppose to be ran by adults looking out for the best interest of the child. Letting a 23 year old man who knocked up a 15 year old off the hook is not in the best interest of the minor! Of course the 15 year old girl was really an undercover reporter but just think how many actual minors where treated that way.
