Lila Rose shared some big pro-life news this week. Lila, who just last month shared about her groundbreaking undercover investigations of Planned Parenthood at our TeenSpeak conference, has shone a light on the web of deceit that surrounds Planned Parenthood clinics across the country. Now her work is getting the attention of authorities in Alabama, where Lila and her team at Live Action filmed one of their undercover videos. Here’s what Lila had to say:
In response to our Birmingham video, the Attorney General Troy King opened an investigation, which King eventually handed over to the State Health Department. Hereâ€™s a sample of what the Health Department found at the Birmingham Planned Parenthood clinic: nine out of 9 underage girls, aged 13 to 15, received abortions without proper verification of parental consent. A 13 year old girl came to the clinic for 2 different abortions with four months. Planned Parenthood made no report of suspected abuse or neglect. The report states: “A reasonable person faced with that situation would have to suspect abuseâ€¦Neither the Registered Nurse, the Medical Doctor, nor any other Center staff reported the suspected abuse or neglect to the authorities as required by law. This is a shocking but sadly typical response from Planned Parenthood.
The full report is here [PDF], and it’s eye-opening. Among other things, it shows shocking code violations such as a mislabeled and expired suction abortion machine, open bottles of expired medicine with syringes still attached, and Planned Parenthood employees looking the other way when a 15-year-old girl provided “parental consent” by a woman with a different name and address. Birth records indicate the woman was not the girlâ€™s mother. It’s about time these offenses started bearing some consequences for the nation’s largest—and apparently sloppiest—abortion provider. Spread the word.
