On January 11th Live Action conducted an undercover investigation of a Charlottesville, Virginia Planned Parenthood clinic. Our undercover reporter posed as a man who ran an international child sex ring and inquired about getting sexual health services for the girls he manages that were as young as 14. The investigation was to test whether Planned Parenthood would promptly report the suspected sex ring to law enforcement.
Planned Parenthood claims that they reported the incident to local law enforcement according a News Virginian report. But that same article also states that:
Albemarle police Sgt. Darrell Byers that he knew of no one in his department who received information about the “fake patient.” He said it was possible the workers could have called but that no report was made.
- Did Planned Parenthood make a false claim that they had reported the incident?
- Did they attempt to report the incident but fail to convey the gravity of the situation?
It is hard to imagine that Planned Parenthood would have been able to report an international child sex ring without a report being made. These revelations show once again the need for a serious investigation into Planned Parenthood’s child sex abuse reporting procedures.
