The national debate over abortion today is focused on comments Missouri Rep. Todd Akin made about abortions in cases of rape and incest that many have called insensitive and have prompted calls for him to stem down from the U.S. Senate race.
However, President Barack Obama and Akin’s Democratic opponent Claire McCaskill have supported taxpayer funding for the Planned Parenthood abortion business — which has been repeatedly found to have failed to report suspected cases of sexual abuse and child rape to authorities.
In one case out of Ohio,a fourteen year old girl was impregnated by her twenty-two year old soccer coach, a man that she and her parents trusted. The coach knew that he needed to get this problem taken care of as quietly as possible since the pregnancy was proof of his statutory rape repeated statutory rape, in fact, that began almost a year earlier. He turned to Planned Parenthood.
With no questions asked, the Planned Parenthood clinic allowed him to sign for the minors abortion in place of her mother and father and to speed up the process and perform the abortion quickly in violation of the states 24-hour waiting period. Planned Parenthood staffers didn’t report the sexual abuse to the authorities either leaving the coach with the opportunity to continue molesting his victim.
In another Ohio case, Planned Parenthood staffers failed to report a fathers sexual abuse of his thirteen-year-old daughter resulting in his continued abuse of his daughter, Denise Fairbanks, for over another year. According to a staffers handwritten note, their policy is dont ask, dont tell.
In September, 2001, police in Spokane, Washington served the Planned Parenthood abortion business with a search warrant looking for information in yet another case of Planned Parenthood doing an abortion that potentially covers up a case of sexual abuse. In this case, the parents of an unidentified 15-year-old girl, who became pregnant by a 21-year-old man, took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion after learning from a school nurse that their daughter was pregnant. Police wanted Planned Parenthood to turn over DNA from the remains of the baby killed in the abortion to connect the man to the possible statutory rape charges.
Steve Aden, the Senior Legal Counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund, says, “The evidence is overwhelming that Planned Parenthood, which receives hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funding annually, routinely ignores, fails to report, and covers up sexual abuse of young girls by older men.”
“Sadly, there is strong evidence that these are not isolated incidents, only examples of a Planned Parenthood policy of empowering sexual abuse of minors,” he has said. “Live Action investigations have revealed that Planned Parenthood clinics across the country have a similarly nonchalant approach to sexual abuse of young girls. Posing as a thirteen-year-old girl seeking an abortion due to intercourse with her thirty-one-year-old boyfriend, Lila Rose called a Bloomington, Indiana Planned Parenthood clinicand was encouraged to lie about her boyfriends age and to go out of state to skirt parental notification laws. Calls to Planned Parenthood clinicsin Indianapolis, Tucson, Phoenix, Memphis, Birmingham, Milwaukee, and Louisville revealed similar willingness to hide sexual abuse against children.”
Also, Live Action footage showed three centers in southern Virginia, a Perth Amboy, New Jersey abortion business and a Planned Parenthood center in Richmond, Virginia all having staffers helping the alleged sex traffickers find information on how to obtain abortions without facing scrutiny and get STD testing for the girls.
A Planned Parenthood staffer in New Jersey has already been fired, New Jersey officials are looking into a shoddy abortion center Planned Parenthood referred to in its video, and the Virginia attorney general has received the full footage of the Richmond Planned Parenthood expose. All three of the new videos clearly show staff willing to aid and abet the sexual trafficking and exploitation of minors and young women and the videos, Lila Rose of Live Action says, provide more evidence of a clear, disturbing pattern of gross misconduct by Planned Parenthood.
Moreover, a pro-life organization that conducted an undercover investigation in 2002 released additional tapes showing staff at hundreds of abortion centers across the country covering up statutory rape. Life Dynamics released tapes from some of the 813 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation centers it calls across the country. The group placed the calls from Texas, where it is legal to record a phone conversation without the consent of the other party. in the phone calls, an actress portrayed a 13-year-old girl who claimed her 22-year-old boyfriend impregnated her and that she wanted an abortion to keep her parents from finding out.
Despite the abundant evidence showing Planned Parenthood covers up sexual abuse and statutory rape, McCaskill and her fellow Democrats supported taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood, as has Obama.
Aw, shucks, here I was hoping they were supporters of Jerry Sandusky’s “Second Mile” stable.
Excellent post. While I still think that Akin should step down, this whole thing is still going to be pushed by the dems(they are already cutting ads trying to tie Ryan to Akin). The point in this article is an important one to make in battling back any advantage the dems hope to curry from this whole thing.
What is worse...a candidate that made a stupid mistake and apologized or a candidate that helps to cover up rape against children repeatedly?
Precisely why I posted this!
Akin must step down, control of the Senate may well be at stake here.
But while a Republican can be downright stupid, they're rarely evil.
With Democrats, if they're not already evil, it's just because they're busy learning how to be.
Agreed Jaz, a truly vile bunch if there ever was one.

I mentioned this abuse by PP in response to the hypocrisy concerning Akin’s poorly construction statement on abortion in the case of rape.
While Akin’s focus was on sparing life, PP gets a pass for killing it and allegedly failing to report cases of rape. PP is glorified, Akin is vilified.
Whoever replaces Akin should hang Planned Parenthood around McCaskill’s neck. She’s supporting the funding of child rape, let her explain that.
Exactly, the obvious salvo in my opinion.
If you could get liberal voters to read this most of them would say “That’s wrong”. Then they’d go vote for more democrats.
(You are welcome!!)
Trying to link Ryan to this is a stretch and it would backfire because I don’t think people like smear, and they’re beginng to see that these attacks on R /R are smear. Akin is being smeared too, but I think you’re right that the GOP may still lose in MO whether Akin steps down or not. Look at what Obama did to Jack Ryan in the IL Senate race and the outcome. I think that stepping down and replacing him could make it even worse. I doubt that Akin is really that insensitive and he just chose his words in such a way that democrats can play it around. Certainly not as insensitive as aborting a full term fetus. Both parties are wetting their pants over this.
