I recently learned of the Mona Lisa Project, spearheaded by UCLA student activist Lila Rose, who “has dedicated her life to ending abortion.” From the website:
The Mona Lisa Project videos document Planned Parenthood’s willingness to repeatedly violate mandatory reporting laws for statutory rape that protect children. Our series of hidden camera investigations, collected by a team led by Lila Rose in summer 2008, provide the public the inside story about the abortion industry and its abuses across the nation. Despite a consistent pattern of lawlessness and abuse, Planned Parenthood receives over $320 million from taxpayers each year. The tax-exempt “nonprofit” netted $100 million in net income last year including revenue of over $100 million directly from performing 289,000 abortions. We hope that our project will lead to criminal prosecution of Planned Parenthood so that their business practices will be forced to comply with governing laws that protect young girls.
The Mona Lisa Project uses Live Action Films to expose Planned Parenthood. I was DISGUSTED, though NOT SURPRISED, at what went down at this Bloomington, Indiana clinic (follow this link to watch the video). A supposed 13 year old girl is first told not to reveal the age of her older boyfriend because state law would require it be reported to CPS, but after the girl indeed reveals that her “boyfriend” is 31, the nurse says:
“Ok, I didn’t hear the age. I don’t want to know the age.”
Then the girl is basically told to just say she doesn’t really know who the father is, just some guy at school or something…and the nurse says, “Ok, so that problem [is] solved.” Indiana state law requires that parent notification be obtained for an abortion and the girl is expressing how uncomfortable it’s going to be when her parents ask who the father is. So next, the nurse “shows,” because she admits she is legally barred from “telling,” the girl how to cross state lines to get the abortion in Illinois so her parents won’t find out. Two other videos have been released, another one from Indiana and one from Arizona. There is a clear pattern of behavior within Planned Parenthood that is consistent among the various clinics. Pretty appalling stuff.
