It is past time to defund this criminal enterprise.
A Planned Parenthood clinic in Kennewick, Washington, is accused of keeping a 14-year-old girl, who was impregnated by a 20-year-old man, from her father and police.
The girl was 22 weeks into her pregnancy when she was referred to a Seattle Planned Parenthood for an abortion. But when her father and police both tried to intervene, clinic worker Andrea Smasne refused to allow them access to the girl. One pro-life activist decides the incident illustrates Planned Parenthood’s hypocrisy.“They keep on telling us that parental notification laws and parental involvement laws are not necessary because they go out of their way to involve parents – except when it’s a case of abuse or incest or something like that,” notes Mark Crutcher, founder and president of Life Dynamics. “And every time one of these cases comes up like that, everything that they do, all of their actions tell you that they’re lying; they’re lying through their teeth.”In the Seattle incident, the clinic worker argued with the father and police that the girl was emancipated upon having sex and becoming pregnant. But current law considers the girl’s pregnancy the result of statutory rape, which awards legal responsibility to her father.
“It doesn’t surprise me in the least,” Crutcher laments. “I mean, this is the way these people think. If having sex with a child like that emancipates her, then there’d be no such thing as statutory rape, because every time…she had sex, then she’s an adult.”
The girl was finally surrendered to her father after police threatened the clinic worker with criminal charges.
