Breaking: Birmingham Planned Parenthood clinic put on probation

Breaking news: a Birmingham Planned Parenthood clinic has been placed on probation due to Lila Rose’s undercover work with the Mona Lisa project.

A Birmingham abortion clinic that was targeted in an undercover sting by anti-abortion activists has been put on probation by the state.
State health officials tell The Associated Press that the Planned Parenthood clinic has until next week to present its plan to correct violations involving minors receiving abortions.

Investigators with the department said records at the clinic showed several minors aged 13-15 had received abortions without proper verification of parental consent since November 2008.

Activists with “Live Action,” a California-based anti-abortion group, posed as a pregnant 14-year-old girl who needed a secret abortion. In an audio tape from the visit, an employee allegedly suggests that someone other than a parent or legal guardian could give consent.

The group’s claim last year led Alabama health officials to investigate.

Here is the video that prompted the investigation:

This is a huge victory for Live Action and for Lila Rose. Lila went undercover at eight Planned Parenthood clinics in the Mona Lisa project, and there have been multiple other violations uncovered across the country. Yet so far, this is the only clinic that has seen repercussions. This particular clinic was found to not only cover up the rape of a minor, but also to try to circumvent parental notification laws. Sadly, what we’ve all speculated about has turned out to be true. It’s only acting when Lila Rose and Jackie Stollar go into these clinics, but how many real underaged girls — scared, confused girls who could possibly be victims of abuse — is this happening to? This clinic was found to have several records of this happening. Imagine how many girls across the country are victims of pedophiles and abusers, and are taken advantage of by an evil organization out for blood and money.

Thankfully, this clinic is being held accountable — but what about the other seven? And don’t forget, Planned Parenthood still receives millions in taxpayer dollars from our government.

It is one thing to be for abortion, but there is absolutely no defense whatsoever for what is happening in these Planned Parenthood clinics. Lila Rose has done a fantastic job exposing them for what they really are, and it’s too bad that this is the only clinic so far to have to potentially face justice for their illegal and immoral activities.
