Set your TiVo’s, ladies and gentlemen. Tonight, David will be on the Bill O’Reilly show to discuss the case of Lila Rose:
An intrepid student reporter faces the legal hammer of Planned Parenthood of Los Angeles (PPLA) after she recorded an abortion clinic employee offering her help to cover-up statutory rape and protect her over-age boyfriend from the police.
Lila Rose, 18, a sophomore at the University of California Los Angeles and editor-in-chief of The Advocate, a pro-life newspaper on campus, entered a PPLA clinic with a hidden video recorder as part of her own investigation into the practices of abortion clinics. Rose posed as a pregnant 15-year-old accompanied by her 23-year-old “boyfriend” played by James O’Keefe.
The video documents a staffer breaking California law, which requires clinics to report sexual abuse, including statutory rape where the victim is under 16 years old. In the meeting between Rose and an anonymous PPLA employee, the staffer told Rose: “If you’re 15, we have to report it … If you’re not, if you’re older than that, then we don’t need to.”
Rose: “Okay, but if I just say I’m not 15, then it’s different?”
PPLA staffer: “You could say 16 … Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don’t know anything.”
Other parts of the video clip show another Planned Parenthood clinic manager encouraging Rose to seek an abortion saying giving birth to her daughter at 17 hindered her own life goals.
“If I would do it again, I would not continue the pregnancy,” said the woman referring to her now 16 year-old daughter.
