Planned Parenthood, the abortion giant receiving nearly $500 million of your tax dollars every year, has a history of covering up rape, particularly rape of minors. This habitual behavior has been well documented and exposed in eight clinics around the country by Live Action through a series of video investigations.
Now, another Planned Parenthood is being accused of covering up rape, this time in Arizona.
A Planned Parenthood counselor in Arizona intentionally miscoded a sexual assault as a consensual encounter to avoid the “hassle” of reporting it to authorities, months before other victims came forward to stop an alleged 18-year-old serial sex predator, a police report reveals.
Tyler Kost, of San Tan Valley, Ariz., has been charged with sexually assaulting 11 girls from the ages of 12 to 17 between October 2009 and April 2014, although authorities believe he has assaulted at least 18 students from Poston Butte High School. The mother of one 15-year-old victim, who became pregnant as a result of the alleged assault, told a Planned Parenthood Arizona staffer about the attack in December, a Pinal County Sheriff’s Office report shows.
“The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter,” the report states. “The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.”
In order to avoid the "hassle" of reporting the rape to authorities, the Planned Parenthood worker in question emboldened the criminal in this case to continue sexually assaulting other young women. Planned Parenthood is arguing the failure to report rape is not a standard practice and a violation of rules, but the repeated behavior by clinic workers to take convenience over the safety and health of patients is not an isolated incident.
