Planned Parenthood happy to help minors obtain abortions without parents’ knowledge

A teen wrote to Planned Parenthood’s “experts” about how she can obtain a second-trimester abortion without her parents’ knowledge:

“Is abortion possible after the first trimester? How much does an abortion cost if you are a minor and want to keep the abortion from your parents?? Help!!!”

Planned Parenthood explained how the teen girl could skirt around parental notification and consent laws if they are required in her state, giving evidence that America’s largest abortion chain is more than happy to help avoid the law when it can.

What any girl considering an abortion without parents needs to know is what abortion actually is. Here, also, is a factsheet about the consequences of abortion for teens. This is not something she will hear at Planned Parenthood. (See further down in the article for how Planned Parenthood treats minor girls and teens.) Instead, girls can get the real facts they need from experts like Dr. Levatino, a former abortionist who believes every girl and every woman deserves to have all the information about what abortion does.

In the video below, Dr. Levatino describes a D&E abortion, one of the most common committed in the U.S.:

Dr. Levatino also explains the facts about the abortion pill (also called medication abortion or RU-486) in the video here, and discusses aspiration or D&C abortion here. Late-term abortion is committed using either the D&E procedure above or the induction abortion explained here.

Often, women and girls believe abortion is an acceptable choice — but that’s almost always before they’ve been able to understand what an abortion actually does to the growing child in their womb and to their own bodies and minds. Abby Johnson, a former manager at Planned Parenthood, tells her own personal story of taking the abortion pill here. Sandra also tells her story of taking an abortion pill, regretting her decision, and finding a doctor to help her with an abortion reversal. Sandra contacted Abortion Pill Reversal’s 24-hour, nurse-staffed hotline at 1-877-558-0333. The hotline is available to any girl regretting her abortion.

Planned Parenthood is already infamous for covering up statutory rape and sending minor girls back to their abusers. It’s tragic that the abortion chain pretends to come alongside teen girls, but actually damages them for life and refuses to tell them the truth.
