USA: planned abuse?

Alliance Defending Freedom has released a report charging US Planned Parenthood (PP) staff with complicity in instances of child sexual abuse, it was reported in late September.

The report details numerous occasions on which young girls came to PP facilities seeking abortions or contraception under suspicious circumstances. Rather than report suspected sexual abuse of minors, however, PP provided abortions or contraception and, in several cases, sent these girls back to their abusers. The cases listed often ended with the abuser being sentenced. The reports, which make for grim reading, include numerous instances of young girls being brought to clinics with repeat abortions. A ‘don’t ask’ policy of PP meant that reports to police were never made. Girls as young as 11 were brought to clinics across the US by older men, most often unrelated partners of the girl’s mother.
