Planned Parenthood Office… Draws Attention For Shielding Alleged Serial Rapist

August 26, 2014 Frontpage No Comments

By DEXTER DUGGAN

TEMPE, Ariz. — A small yellowish-tan strip mall here at 1250 E. Apache Blvd. includes ethnic restaurants and a coin-operated laundry convenient to students from the main campus at behemoth Arizona State University, located a short walk to the west.
ASU has more than 60,000 students at the campus, and another 12,000 or so at its three other sites here in the metropolitan Phoenix area, making it the largest public university by enrollment in the United States.
But the “L”-shaped little strip mall has even a bigger behemoth’s outlet as a tenant, a Planned Parenthood office.
The third-of-a-million annual permissive abortions that government-funded Planned Parenthood inflicts would wipe out ASU’s total enrollment by roughly four and two-thirds times. That’s entire coliseums full of future students dumped into garbage bins each year.
Why is a birth-control and abortion office set amid the mall’s Pakistani, Indian, and kabob food counters and even a bartending academy under the drab, greenish roofing?
That’s a conscious national strategy to make Planned Parenthood seem just a casual part of everyday existence.
It’s not as if drugs that seriously alter women’s bodies, and abortions that kill their infants, are to be regarded as something physically serious, something you’d go to a medical-office complex or hospital for. No, it’s supposedly as sheerly simple as ordering takeout food.
However, as even calorie-counting Michelle Obama would admit, too much fast food can cause serious health consequences. And this local Planned Parenthood has gotten onto a national dishonor roll with other such Sangerite outlets around the nation accused of inappropriate or illegal behavior.
The office is accused of shielding an alleged young serial rapist who remained free to commit more assaults before he was arrested. The incident has drawn some national attention, including Bill O’Reilly’s televised O’Reilly Factor on Fox News August 13.
Pinal County, Ariz., Sheriff Paul Babeu notified the Arizona Attorney General’s office by letter in May that a woman and her 14-year-old daughter “made a criminal allegation” against the Tempe office after the daughter, pregnant by the rapist, had an ultrasound and abortion there.
The ultrasound reportedly was on December 31, 2013, and the abortion on January 4.
Babeu wrote the attorney general that according to the woman and daughter, a Planned Parenthood counselor acknowledged the office was required by law to report the sexual assault, but it was too much trouble to do so, so the counselor improperly filled out a form to say consensual sex was involved.
“The counselor told them she did not want the hassle of having to report the sexual assault to law enforcement,” Babeu wrote.
The sheriff said the rape suspect is Tyler Kost, 18, a high school student in Pinal County’s San Tan Valley. Kost was taken into custody and is being held without bond.
Usually in national news because of massive illegal-immigration violations affecting his county, Babeu has other sorts of crimes to deal with as well in his rapidly urbanizing territory, just southeast of Phoenix’s Maricopa County.
“The investigation has continued to grow as we have identified a total of 18 victims, which have resulted in 29 felony accusations being filed,” Babeu wrote on May 13.
On July 24 four traditional-values groups held a news conference outside the Tempe clinic to demand an investigation. They were the Center for Arizona Policy, Alliance Defending Freedom, Susan B. Anthony List, and Students for Life of America.
In early August, the Arizona-based Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) sent the director of the Arizona Department of Health Services a four-page letter, along with attachments, going into detail about accusations.
If Planned Parenthood had made an immediate report, as required by law, the letter said, “it appears that at least four other victims could have been spared sexual abuse by Mr. Kost.”
ADF legal counsel Natalie Decker told The Wanderer in an August 15 interview, “It is our understanding that both [the Arizona attorney general’s and health-services] offices are looking into this and will be investigating,” although she didn’t know when results may be announced.
“It is far past the time to thoroughly investigate Planned Parenthood and hold them accountable for what they are doing,” Decker said.
When The Wanderer observed that this national abortion-providing organization has some powerful friends, including Barack Obama, Decker replied, “The law needs to be equally applied to everyone,” regardless of possible supporters.
The reporting requirement is important not only to protect victims but also to spare possible future victims from crimes, she said, because a serial sexual abuser otherwise would continue his pattern.
“[I]f the allegations are true . . . had it been reported . . . four other victims could have been avoided,” she said.
Although Planned Parenthood claims to be interested in the health of women and children, “their real motive is entirely different,” Decker said. “. . . I think that they’re interested in expanding their profit.
“Children and our daughters deserve to be protected, and Planned Parenthood needs to be investigated. . . . No girl should ever be told that reporting her rape is a hassle,” Decker said.
A July 24 news report by KSAZ-TV, Channel 10, in Phoenix, said:
“Citing privacy concerns, Planned Parenthood wouldn’t discuss the allegations. The company did issue a statement that said: ‘We follow all laws and issue appropriate reports to authorities. We have a zero-tolerance policy for staff who fail to follow this policy. . . . In the last 12 months leading up to June, our staff reported 33 such situations to the proper authorities’.”
The ADF letter to the Arizona Department of Health Services detailed instances in the Grand Canyon State and elsewhere of Planned Parenthood facilities being accused of ignoring mandatory reporting laws, “inevitably resulting in the continued victimization of young children.”

“Open For Business”

In mid-August, tens of thousands of students were streaming to ASU for the new semester. It may be easy for them to get around the metropolitan Phoenix area, whose light-rail system runs right along Apache Boulevard, past the Tempe Planned Parenthood office.
If a passenger alighted and walked over toward the clinic, he’d see its politically correct front door with a poster showing the Arizona state flag, along with the words, “Open for business to everyone!”
Many people may have forgotten already, but last February homosexual activists used that “open for business” slogan, along with the Arizona flag image, when they denounced SB 1062, an Arizona bill to protect religious conscience at businesses. Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed it on February 26, giving the excuse the bill was regarded as economically harmful.
SB 1062 supposedly was unfriendly to homosexuals and had to be killed. No surprise that Planned Parenthood is always ready for business when it comes to killing, both regulations and babies.
