I can’t say I was surprised to read this report published by the Beazley Institute for Health Law and Policy. Researchers discovered a direct link between sex trafficking, abortion and Planned Parenthood.
The study found that 55% of sex trafficking victims in the study had obtained abortions. Thirty percent had undergone more than one abortion, according to LiveAction.org.
It makes sense. It’s hard for trafficked women to make money for their handlers when they are visibly pregnant or nursing infants. So, the women are ushered into abortion mills to have the problem swept away all in the name of “choice.”
In 2011, Live Action investigators posed as a pimp and one of his prostitutes seeking a place that would handle STI treatments for his sex trafficking victims — some as young as 14.
Planned Parenthood employees at seven facilities across the nation actually worked to help the “sex traffickers” by telling them how to get victims tested, the best way to skirt the laws to get abortions for them, and how to lie on paperwork about the ages of the girls so Planned Parenthood could avoid mandated reporting laws. One Planned Parenthood staffer even encouraged the “pimp” to sign the paperwork as the girls’ guardian.
Thanks to laws that prevent parents or guardians from having to grant permission for an abortion, it is well documented that abusers of young women can take their pregnant victims in for an abortion to eliminate any evidence of a crime.
The Live Action report outlines a conversation between a Planned Parent worker and a fake pimp on how to best lie to get an abortion in order to “make all our lives easier.” Except that of the unborn child.
After the undercover effort was exposed, Planned Parenthood retrained their staff how to spot undercover investigators and determine whether or not they were being recorded — not how to identify trafficking victims, Live Action noted.
