View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Planned Parenthood - More charges!

The billion dollar abortion business is facing yet more accusations of covering up sexual abuse and rape - and in this case, incest.

A 21-year old known as Denise from Ohio is suing Planned Parenthood for not reporting signs of abuse - as is requited by Ohio law - resulting in her suffering an additional year and a half of abuse at the hands of her father.

Denise was reportedly raped by her father repeatedly between the ages of 13 and 17. When she was 16, she became pregnant by him and was taken by him to Planned Parenthood in Mount Auburn, Ohio, for an abortion..

According to her suit, when when questioned by Planned Parenthood employees, the girl allegedly said "that she had been forced to do things that she did not want to do."

Denise's father was arrested eighteen months after the Planned Parenthood visit, thanks to the intervention of the Denise's basketball coach, and was sentenced to five years in prison in 2006.

The prosecuting attorney in the case, Brain Hurley, told the Cincinnati Enquirer, "She tried to put an end to this abuse by informing a Planned Parenthood employee that she had been forced to have sex and to do things she did not want to do. Tragically for her, Planned Parenthood's 'don't ask, don't tell' policy was in full force."

This is just the latest incident involving Planned Parenthood and accusations of failing to report sex crimes.

UCLA student Lila Rose's "Mona Lisa Project" has involved women going undercover and videotaping Planned Parenthood employees ignoring statutory rape. Three different Planned Parenthoods have been caught covering up rape, which they were required by law to report to the authorities. And there are reportedly others who may face accusations as the Project continues.

When is the government going to cut off funding for Planned Parenthood? Both Republican and Democratic elected officials are guilty of continuing to vote for funds.
