New FDA policy could help cover up cases of statutory rape, pro-life group says

.- Reacting to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announcement that it would allow 17-year-olds to purchase the “morning after” birth control pill without a doctor’s prescription or parental knowledge, Students for Life of America has charged that the policy would help cover up cases of rape. In October 2008, SFLA released a video showing Planned Parenthood clinics in Charlotte and Winston-Salem, North Carolina covering up the putative statutory rape of two young girls.

In the videos, college student volunteers posing as 14- and 15-year-olds told clinic workers they had just had sexual relations with their mother’s live-in-boyfriend and wanted the “morning after” pill.

According to SFLA, the Planned Parenthood workers failed to report the statutory rape as required by North Carolina law. The workers also told the girl that the older man could go into any drug store to purchase the “morning after” pill, which is also known as “Plan B.”

“The FDA ruling this week which expands access of Plan B to minors is just going to allow rapists to continue to cover up their crimes. Parents won't even know that their daughters are being raped,” charged SFLA Executive Director Kristan Hawkins.
