With fall and winter came the release of a series of undercover videos showing several Planned Parenthood clinics seemingly aiding and abetting the sex trafficking of underage girls. The advent of spring and summer brought denied funding to the organization by several states. Now, as the nation’s largest abortion provider tries to recover from such stormy seasons, its public relations problems are only getting worse.
Americans United for Life (AUL), a leading national organization dedicated to protecting the sanctity of human life, released a report earlier this month calling for a full-scale federal investigation of Planned Parenthood for what it identifies as years of scandal, abuse and suspect allocation of taxpayer dollars.
“The Case for Investigating Planned Parenthood” draws on 20 years of tracking the abortion giant’s financial records and law enforcement reports. What AUL found is upsetting, though regrettably not altogether shocking for those who have been following Planned Parenthood. AUL’s case against Planned Parenthood includes allegations of: Failure to report criminal child sexual abuse. Failure to comply with parental involvement laws. Misuse of the abortion drug RU-486 and misinformation on other so-called emergency contraception. Inaccurate and deceptive counsel to women seeking abortions based on the development of unborn children. Aiding prostitution and sex trafficking.
