Planned Parenthood covered up child sexual abuse in seven states, report shows

new scathing report from Alliance Defending Freedom reveals how Planned Parenthood covered up cases of child sexual abuse in seven states. The 13-page summary report shows how the abortion giant failed to report the crimes to authorities, as required by law, but instead profited off the abortions of minor girls.

The report cites multiple cover-ups —not isolated incidents—of sexually abused minors in Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Minnesota, and Ohio. In every case, ADF reports how affiliates of Planned Parenthood Federation of America did secret abortions, and sent innocent victims back into the arms of their sexual abusers.


Planned Parenthood’s neglect for rule of law shows it cares more about abortion than the safety of women and children. In the mentioned incidents, the abortion business was a partner in crime with rapists, child molesters, and sexual abusers. Mandatory reporting laws require a provider to report any suspicion of abuse.

One example cited in ADF’s report is every parent’s worst nightmare:

“In Ohio, a Planned Parenthood facility permitted a soccer coach who had impregnated a 14-year-old child to sign off on her abortion without her parents’ knowledge or consent.”
A case in California details how a perpetrator was able to continue the pattern of abuse.
“In one California case, a well-known swimming coach, Andrew King, a sexual predator, impregnated a 14-year-old girl who then received an abortion at Planned Parenthood. King went on to sexually molest and abuse scores of other girls.”

This report, however, highlights a sampling of crimes in Planned Parenthood’s long legacy of sexual abuse cover-up. Live Action’s Mona Lisa investigation revealed how Planned Parenthood staffers were willing to hide statutory rape, exposing how a pattern of criminal activity at Planned Parenthood is just business as usual.


One state implicated in both Live Action’s investigation and the ADF report is Alabama. The Alabama Department of Health clearly has a problem on its hands since multiple clinics have been exposed for covering up the sexual abuse of minors.

Last November the Alabama Department of Health released this report from the Mobile, AL, Planned Parenthood, which failed to report the suspected sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl who had two abortions.  Despite the report, in which so many violations were found, it is a wonder the clinic was not immediately shut down.

ADF Senior Counsel and former U.S. Attorney Michael J. Norton says the pattern of mistrust must be stopped.

“Our report adds to the growing mountain of information that makes defunding Planned Parenthood a clear priority. Thousands of true community health centers can be trusted with our hard-earned money. Planned Parenthood has proven for decades that it can’t be trusted. The only thing it’s entitled to is a federal investigation.”

The protection of rapists and child molesters is a prevailing modus operandi for the abortion giant. And now that the videos from the Center for Medical Progress have revealed what happens to aborted babies, it is more clear that the profit from abortion and the trafficking of body parts trump protecting children—born or preborn.
