Planned Parenthood Profits Off of Child Sexual Abuse
A new report indicates the abortion giant is ignoring reporting requirements for some rapes.
In 2012, Barack Obama said, “The outrage of human trafficking … must be called by its true name: modern slavery.” Calling it “barbaric,” “evil” and something that “has no place in a civilized world,” he admonished: “American tax dollars must never, ever be used to support the trafficking of human beings. We have zero tolerance. We mean what we say, and we’ll enforce it.”
Conversely, in 2013, Obama adoringly told America’s most notorious abortion mill: “Thank you, Planned Parenthood. God bless you.” Here’s the irony: Half a billion taxpayer dollars go to Planned Parenthood every year, which means that taxpayers aren’t just funding abortion-on-demand, they’re also helping sustain a form of human trafficking that Obama once deemed “barbaric,” “evil” and something that “has no place in a civilized world.” The proof is provided by a new Live Action report. Zero tolerance? Hardly.
The Live Action exposé documents numerous examples of abuse, including incestuous child rape wherein 12- and 13-year-old girls were taken to Planned Parenthood clinics for abortions after being impregnated by family members (multiple times in at least one case). As horrible as this is, the worst part is that the perpetrators got away with their crimes thanks to Planned Parenthood’s nonexistent convictions.
As one former manager explained it: “We were all required to be mandatory reporters, but … we really were discouraged from calling [the abuse] in, just because they didn’t want to have the trouble — the angry parent, the angry boyfriend, whatever it was. So, more than once I was told, ‘No, that is not reportable. You don’t need to call it in.’” Furthermore, Live Action says, “Planned Parenthood’s repeated failure to report such incidents has allowed abusers to continue abusing their victims, often for years. This reputation has led to Planned Parenthood becoming a haven for sexual abusers and sex traffickers. Planned Parenthood is a favorite place to take their victims to cover up their crimes.”
Matt Walsh writes, “I don’t believe that staff members at your average Planned Parenthood clinic support rape, per se. I think they just care much more about the financial and ideological bottom line. Financially, rape is good for business because it brings in money. Repeated rape, especially the repeated rape of a child by a family member, is extremely good for business because it creates a sustained revenue stream. And ideologically, it would hurt the cause of ‘reproductive rights’ if people began to understand just how often women are coerced or outright forced to ‘choose’ abortions.”
Amazingly, Democrats have literally asked God to bless an organization that doesn’t just perform hundreds of thousands of abortions every year but shields rapists. And it’s no wonder. As the Apostle Paul wrote in 1 Timothy 6:10, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.”
