Video: Second Indiana Planned Parenthood clinic violates the law

Yesterday, the Indiana Attorney General announced a criminal investigation into a Planned Parenthood clinic that got exposed in attempting to thwart child-abuse notification laws. Today, the AG may have another clinic to investigate, as Lila Rose publishes another of her Mona Lisa Project undercover videos showing how Planned Parenthood workers actively advise children how to avoid state laws on parental notification:
The first time could just be a rogue employee, but this second incident in the same month suggests a pattern of responses from Planned Parenthood. The faces change, but the dialogue remains almost exactly the same. “I don’t want to know the age,” comes the immediate response. Even the hand gestures mimic the previous video. Once again, the abortion counselor gives a helpful geography lesson to a putative 13-year-old girl, suggesting that the child drag herself over state lines to get the abortion rather than follow the law and report the incident to the police.
How many people do you know that would advise a 13-year-old boy or girl to travel without parents or guardians across state lines for any purpose, let alone an invasive medical procedure? Planned Parenthood apparently sees nothing wrong with that. Lila Rose got that advice at least twice in her undercover work.
Planned Parenthood receives over $300 million a year in taxpayer subsidies. It’s a non-profit, but they made $100 million in surplus last year, thanks to those subsidies and apparently a hard-sell attitude on abortions, one of their primary revenue channels. It’s long past time to end the taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood and to start a close review of their actions in obstructing justice. Lila Rose may play at being a 13-year-old, but how many actual 13-year-olds came before her to these clinics, abused and exploited, while PP did nothing and said nothing?
