Student puts a new face on battle over abortion(she takes on Planned Parenthood)
Houston Chronicle ^ | 4-27-09 | ROBIN ABCARIAN

Posted on 04/27/2009 4:41:12 AM PDT by truthandlife

The girl’s voice in the videotape is tiny and tentative. She is talking to a nursing aide in a Planned Parenthood clinic in Bloomington, Ind. The girl wants an abortion.

The aide explains that the girl will need a parent’s consent because she is only 13.

The girl balks; she does not want to name the father.

“Cause, I mean, he would be in really big trouble,” says the girl. Her boyfriend, she explains, is 31.

The aide drops her head into her hands.

“In the state of Indiana,” says the aide, “when anyone has had intercourse and they are age 13 or younger ... it has to be reported to Child Protective Services.”

There is a 60-second gap in the tape, according to the running timer on the video. What happens next is meant to be explosive.

“OK,” says the aide, “I didn’t hear the age. I don’t want to know the age. It could be reported as rape. And that’s child abuse.”

“So if I just say I don’t know who the father was, but he’s one of the guys at school or something?” asks the girl.

“Right,” says the aide, who has just stepped into a carefully laid trap.

As it happens, the boyfriend does not exist. The girl is not pregnant. Nor is she 13.

I am glad she is doing this but what sickens me is the pro-abortion Houston Chronicle goes ahead and publishes her picture in the article. Do you think they did this article and put her picture up so that they would intimidate anyone who did this again?

This is a great idea. To bad she didn’t do more than one of these stings on them. It would be nice to have several of the same type of scenarios just to show how out of control Planned Parenthood is.

God Bless this brave young lady. Fortunately, we have many young people who are willing to brave the anti-life people’s wrath and press forward for life.

Lying and masquerading as a pregnant 13 year old and inventing a 31 year old father is a despicable act. We know what PP does. Staging a fake interview lowers us to their level.

Law enforcement officials do it every day. Do you say they do despicable acts when they try to lure perverts online by “lying” about who is on the other end?

“I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. And let me remind you also that moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” Barry Goldwater 1964

True then, true now and if it “lowers us to their level” while saving a child’s life, I will take a chance on Judgement Day that the Good Lord will forgive the lie.

And yes, the road to H*!! is paved with good intentions; but “But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3.16

Do you think they'll admire you for staking out the moral high ground? Do you think that doing so will make them stop covering up for child molesters?

Yes, we do...but there are others out there who don't or just refuse to see for whatever reason. Those are the ones she was making her point to.

How else would you propose to expose PP's repeated violatons of the law?

So, police who pose as buyers for drug busts, or as Johns for prostitution stings, or as hit men for murder-for-hire busts or as Mongol bikers for illegal weapon busts or Mafia henchmen for RICO busts, those are all despicable and lower the police to the level of the criminal involved? Sorry, I don’t get it.

Killing abortion doctors and bombing clinics lowers us to their level. Exposing them for the cult of death that they are is a positive thing.

I believe this is the same young lady that appeared on Glenn Beck last week. She did not disguise her identity in the interview.

********************

We may "know" what PP does, but proving it to everyone else is crucial if we want to make any progress in the fight against abortion. Staging a fake interview absolutely does not lower us the the level of those who conduct abortions.

Yes!

Pretending to be 13 is just as bad as killing a baby.
Finally, someone with a working moral compass.

“Killing abortion doctors and bombing clinics lowers us to their level. Exposing them for the cult of death that they are is a positive thing.”

I like your logic. I guess when we bombed Germany into submission twice, we ‘lowered ourselves’ to their level? Man, I feel so dirty. I’m going to go spit on my Grandfather’s grave, the same one who shot down five Jap planes as an AA gunner on a USN destroyer. Or maybe on my step-dad’s grave, who drove a LST on D-Day.

How about Japan? We got medieval with those bastards...but I don’t remember any GI’s beheading any Jap prisoners. Well, I guess we were ‘at their level’ because we chose to fight instead of submit.

Think how superior we would feel if we had instead just been conquered. Fighting is so icky. Let the fetus who doesn’t want to be killed defend himself.

Do I need the /sarc tag? Or is it heavy enough?

This is such a great line of thought that I just have to go further with it.

How about the death camps? Did killing the operators of the camps make us morally inferior? I mean, we had to stoop to their level(killing) to stop the killing. Man, what a muddled mess it must be in your head.

I can only imagine what you feel when we stoop to the level of the convicted murderer by, well, (righteously) murdering him. Better that he be free to kill the innocent than for us to punish the guilty.

Notice how the concern is that they would have to notify CPS, but the parents of the girl are never mentioned.

Girls go to licensed abortion clinics and die from hemorrhaging at home sometimes. Just because abortion is legal now doesn't meant that they don't still botch abortions.

and a bold plan to expose what she and many abortion foes believe are Planned Parenthood’s wrongdoings.

Where does the LAtte Times get the chutzpah to allege that there is ANY excuse for the criminal actions of Planned Parenthood?

Rose’s strategy — accusing Planned Parenthood of failing to report suspected statutory rapes — is not a new one in the anti-abortion trenches.

Planned Parenthood is pro-rape and it is an ugly truth that the Left does not like exposed. Rape = money. There exists a culture of corruption among abortionists.

Do you feel the same about law enforcement agents who pose as minors in online chat?

Protecting minors is a crucial part of their mission, they say, but with 30,000 employees and volunteers and 850 clinics, they say mistakes are inevitable.

"Mistakes were made."

Notice that the LA Times is giving Planned Parenthood abortuaries a fairer shake than they gave the US military over Abu Ghraib prison.

Wrong. Just like undercover traps must be used to catch and convict many types of criminals, this type of undercover work is needed to expose PP not to others who know what PP does but to the ignorant masses out there who think this insidious organization is actually doing good.

Unfortunately abortion is legal in the US. The killing of a convicted murderer is not murder it is execution which is the carrying out of justice. We are a nation of laws and one of the main problems is that the courts are trying to legislate from the bench. The Supreme Court should have no say in whether or not a state allows abortion.

As for the nazi death camps that is entirely different because it was a real war not like the “war on drugs” or “war on poverty” or the other various “wars” our government claims to be fighting.

The Supreme Court should have a say in whether or not a state allows abortion. It snuffs out a human life. It is a civil rights issue.
