Undercover Exposé Reveals Planned Parenthood Aiding Secret Abortions for Minors
A recent undercover investigation by Project Veritas has revealed disturbing practices within Planned Parenthood clinics involving minors. The expose shows clinic representatives, including a Kansas Planned Parenthood Managing Director named Emily, admitting to assisting minors in crossing state lines to obtain secret abortions without parental consent. This revelation is alarming and raises serious ethical and legal questions about the practices of these abortion providers.
In the footage, a Project Veritas journalist posing as an individual involved with a minor seeking an abortion inquires about the need for documentation proving a relationship to the minor. The response from a nurse at Maple Women’s Health Center in Dallas, Texas, is a straightforward “No.” This lack of verification process indicates a concerning disregard for parental rights and the safety of minors.
The investigation, described as a “nationwide scheme to traffic minors across state lines for secret abortions,” reveals how Planned Parenthood facilitates these procedures. They reportedly offer services that include arranging hotels, interstate transport, providing doctor’s notes for schools, and even covering the costs of the abortion, all without the knowledge or consent of the parents.
One particularly troubling admission in the video is a Planned Parenthood staff member stating they conduct abortions on teens in a way that “parents won’t find out.” This secretive approach to a significant medical procedure on minors is not only unethical and dangerous but could potentially be illegal.
Emily, from the Kansas clinic, further confirms that they frequently see out-of-state patients, particularly from Texas and Oklahoma, and help arrange transport to states like Illinois, Colorado, and even Washington, D.C., for abortions. The casual manner in which these cross-state operations are discussed is shocking and underscores a blatant disregard for parental authority.
Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood employee, sheds light on the organization’s internal workings. She reveals how Planned Parenthood would coach minors and provide them with scripts to read to judges to obtain abortions without parental consent. This process, known as a “judicial bypass,” is apparently well-known within the organization and facilitated by its close relationship with certain judges.
Project Veritas also found that minors were given pamphlets with contact information for court officials and instructions on pursuing an abortion without parental consent. This expose by Project Veritas is a stark reminder of the need for more stringent regulations and oversight of abortion clinics, especially when it involves minors. The apparent ease with which Planned Parenthood bypasses parental consent is deeply concerning. As a society, we must ensure that such organizations are held accountable and that the rights of parents and the welfare of minors are protected.
