Last week I asked Attorney General Steve Carter to investigate Planned Parenthood of Indiana, based upon an undercover "sting" operation on video that had a supposed 13-yr. old Hoosier girl impregnated by a 31yr. old man. The employee of Planned Parenthood in a Bloomington Clinic, was caught on tape, advising the girl to cover up the statutory rape..a felony and advised her to go out of State to get an abortion because of Indiana's parental consent law.
At midnight last night, another video tape was released, this time showing the same girl talking to two different Planned Parenthood employees, this time at an Indianapolis Clinic. The answers the girl received were virtually identical...cover up the crime, get an out of state abortion and circumvent Indiana's laws and leave a sexual abuser lose to commit another crime.
Seeing these events occur at two different locations in Indiana and seeing 3 different employees react in virtually the same manner, showing a blatant disregard for all Indiana laws pertaining to protecting minors from sexual abuse, today, I called for the "defunding" of Planned Parenthood of Indiana.
Attorney General Steve Carter is investigating the Planned Parenthood allegations and I asked him to now widen that investigation and also look into the possibility of Medicaid fraud. Today, I also asked FSSA Secretary to immediately cease the distribution of all tax payer funds, including Medicaid Reimbursement dollars, to Indiana Planned Parenthood. As an agency contracted to do business in Indiana and receive Medicaid dollars, they should be held accountable for upholding all State laws that pertain to them.
This story has flown into the national spotlight because of the blatant disregard for Indiana's law regarding the protection of minors. I believe, that irregardless of your view of the pro-life/pro-choice question, this is now a matter of public safety. We have to commit to protecting young women in this State.
You can check out these appalling videos on my website. www.jackiewalorski.com It's time to stand up and bring this type of contempt and blatant disregard for the law to an end.
