Johnson County Grand Jury Effort Supported By Hard Evidence of Illegality
Overland Park, KS — Operation Rescue released today audio files and transcripts of undercover telephone calls to Kansas abortion clinics that show evidence in each case of the intentional concealment of child rape.
The files were released in response to a citizen petition in Johnson County, Kansas, to convene a grand jury to investigate Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri.
“This hard evidence alone should be enough to warrant a grand jury investigation,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.
The calls were made by Life Dynamics Inc. during a private investigation of abortion clinics conducted by that organization. During the phone calls, an adult woman identified herself as a 13-year old girl involved in an active sexual relationship with a 22-year old boyfriend.
That sexual relationship is considered statutory rape, a crime in all 50 states. Statutory rape is, by legal definition, child sexual abuse. It is legally mandatory that incidents of suspected child sexual abuse be reported to authorities in Kansas.
In each case, the Kansas abortion clinics, fully understanding the age disparity, told the caller that she could get a pregnancy test with her boyfriend present without the relationship being reported by them.
Every Planned Parenthood office in Kansas told the caller that they would prescribe birth control for her without reporting, and that the 22-year old boyfriend would be allowed to pick up the birth control prescription for her.
Other abortion offices would not provide birth control for the caller, but instead referred her to Planned Parenthood, indicating that organization would not report.
“Planned Parenthood is actively aiding and abetting child rapists by giving them the birth control pills, which is the tool they need so they can keep raping these children without discovery. These tapes prove that beyond any doubt,” said Newman. “Our little girls need protection from those who would prey on them, but instead, Planned Parenthood conceals the rapes, protects the rapists and even helps them to keep raping. It would be irresponsible of us to have knowledge of this and not try to get an investigation to bring these clinics to justice.”
