There's an irony in the media's obsession (some of it justified) with Penn State's coach Joe Paterno's failure to report sexual abuse of boys by his colleague Jerry Sandusky when he was made aware of the abuse, and the media's relative whisper about a much much more egregious scandal-- a crime actually-- involving Planned Parenthood clinics concealing the identities of child rapists to protect their abortion-mill income.
From Steve Aden at LifeNews:
A fourteen year old Ohio girl is impregnated by her twenty-two year old soccer coach, a man that she and her parents trust. The coach knows that he needs to get this “problem” taken care of as quietly as possible since the pregnancy is now proof of his statutory rape – repeated statutory rape, in fact, that began almost a year earlier. He turns to Planned Parenthood and they don’t let him down.
With no questions asked, the Planned Parenthood clinic allows him to sign for the minor’s abortion in place of her mother and father and to speed up the process and perform the abortion quickly in violation of the state’s 24 hour waiting period. Planned Parenthood staffers don’t report the sexual abuse to the authorities either – leaving the coach with the opportunity to continue molesting his victim.
In another Ohio case, Planned Parenthood staffers failed to report a father’s sexual abuse of his thirteen-year-old daughter – resulting in his continued abuse of his daughter, Denise Fairbanks, for over another year. According to a staffer’s handwritten note, their policy is “don’t ask, don’t tell.”
Sadly, there is strong evidence that these are not isolated incidents, only examples of a Planned Parenthood policy of empowering sexual abuse of minors. Live Action investigations have revealed that Planned Parenthood clinics across the country have a similarly nonchalant approach to sexual abuse of young girls. Posing as a thirteen-year-old girl seeking an abortion due to intercourse with her thirty-one-year-old boyfriend, Lila Rose called a Bloomington, Indiana Planned Parenthood clinicand was encouraged to lie about her boyfriend’s age and to go out of state to skirt parental notification laws. Calls to Planned Parenthood clinicsin Indianapolis, Tucson, Phoenix, Memphis, Birmingham, Milwaukee, and Louisville revealed similar willingness to hide sexual abuse against children.Where's the outrage? Where are the soul-searching editorials? Where are the headlines, the candlelight vigils?
When the failure to protect children is that of Planned Parenthood, on a massive scale, the media response is... birds chirping.
Planned parenthood has a long record of
We are seeing a fascinating and deeply evil dynamic. Ingenious, really. The atheist left is fanatically publicizing sins that plague all sectors of our society-- sins such as child abuse-- and selectively using these evils to bash selective targets they've chosen to advance their agenda. Joe Paterno and the blue-collar conservative folks at Penn State get the third degree. The Catholic Church gets the third degree, despite the fact that child sexual assualt by public school employees is more common by orders of magnitude than assault by priests. How many scorching articles have you read about the sex abuse rot in our school system? Has the Secretary of Education been asked to publicly apologize for sexual assault by teachers, as the Pope is incessantly asked to apologize for assault by priests?
And Planned Parenthood, the darling of the atheist left, protects child rapists on a massive scale in order to increase profits. It gets a pass.
The hypocrisy of the media and the atheist left in the selective outrage against Joe Paterno-- a transparently good man with a lifetime of service and integrity who has transformed for the better the lives of thousands of young men and who for whatever reason made one very bad decision-- and the utter silence of the media and the atheist left on the decades-long organized aiding and abetting of child rape by Planned Parenthood-- is breathtaking.
