Planned Parenthood charade

June 26, 2006 09:00 AM

Isn't it interesting that an Ohio judge, Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Patrick Dinklacker, has ordered Cincinnati Planned Parenthood to turn over all records for abortion patients under the age of 18?

Of course, Planned Parenthood is screaming like a stuck pig and vows to appeal the decision as far as it can. No surprises there. But one has to ask why the organization is so hysterical when all the judge is saying is that parents have a right to know whether or not their minor daughter was possibly sexually assaulted.

Planned Parenthood is claiming to be concerned about the exposure of private medical information.But if one of those girls had suffered severe complications after an abortion, it is the parents who would be responsible for their child, not Planned Parenthood. And if, God forbid, one of them had died, it would not be Planned Parenthood left with only a memory of a young woman who died tragically and for no good reason.

I honestly think Planned Parenthood is howling because it fears the public might catch on to this little game. For example, in the case described here, the young girl's "boyfriend" has been convicted on seven chargs of sexual battery for having sex with the girl who was 13 years old at the time.

Any decent health care provider would want to protect young women like this girl. But I did preface my statement with the word "decent," and that leaves Planned parenthood out.
