LiveActionNews.org — If you’re at college, you might have heard about the Sexual Health Advocacy Group – SHAG for short. Known as “shaggers” (seriously), members try “to open up the conversation about sexual health, sex positivity, and sexual communication.” SHAG embraces disadvantaged groups, including those in the disabled community. It’s also fine with aborting them.

The University of Georgia used to have a SHAG chapter, and it ran a website with links to pro-abortion articles. Among them was a piece in Teen Vogue titled, “10 Girls Share How Planned Parenthood Made A Difference In Their Lives.” It included a story from “Danielle,” who described being raped at 14 by several male acquaintances.
The experience left her “a hopeless, desperate, and sad young teen whose innocence was ripped away by four evil men,” and she was grateful to Planned Parenthood for giving her Plan B the next day. Danielle says she lied and told Planned Parenthood staff the sex was consensual; even if she hadn’t, I’m not sure it would have made a difference.
It didn’t when one of accused serial rapist Tyler Kost’s alleged victims went to Planned Parenthood. Despite telling staff she’d been assaulted, they decided filing a report would be too much “hassle.” Kost remained free, with local law enforcement contending that an investigation could have started months earlier if Planned Parenthood had come forward.
Planned Parenthood didn’t help Denise Fairbanks, either. Fairbanks was brought there for an abortion at 16 by her incestuous father. In a subsequent lawsuit, she recalled explicitly telling Planned Parenthood employees about the abuse…who proceeded to do nothing, allowing it to resume when she got home.
Becki Brenner was president of the Planned Parenthood affiliate Fairbanks got taken to, and she insisted her organization would be exonerated, proclaiming, “I am going to be very, very pleased when the facts of this case do come out in a court of law.” Or not: Planned Parenthood chose to settle rather than face a jury.
But ignoring signs of abuse is nothing new at America’s largest abortion chain, which is why I’ve made a list of my own. So without further adieu, here are 10 child rapists that were helped by Planned Parenthood.
1. Gary Cross
When Cross’ wife noticed her 13 year-old daughter was gaining weight, Cross knew it was because he’d gotten her pregnant. Luckily for him, Planned Parenthood staff didn’t care that she was well below the age of consent. Instead of calling authorities, they arranged an abortion. With the evidence gone, Cross was free to keep abusing her – which he did.
Colorado’s Office of Children, Youth, & Families warns that when a child under fourteen “becomes pregnant or contracts a venereal disease,” it’s time to get suspicious. Employees at Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains don’t agree, with one admitting under oath in 2014 that “being thirteen and pregnant alone is not a red flag” there. That made things easy for Timothy Smith: he brought his 13 year-old stepdaughter in for an abortion after impregnating her. When they were done, Planned Parenthood turned the victim back over to her abuser, no questions asked. Later, when the girl’s mother sued Planned Parenthood, the abortion chain rushed to a settlement when the judge commented that Planned Parenthood’s conduct so outrageous that punitive damages would be appropriate.
3. Joseph Coles
Planned Parenthood didn’t file a report when Coles’ 12 year-old stepdaughter showed up. Then again, the two other abortion centers she was taken to didn’t say anything either.
Ramirez brought his 13 year-old daughter to Planned Parenthood for two abortions in less than 6 months. No action was taken.
5. Luis Gonzalez-Jose got Planned Parenthood to perform an abortion on an 11 year-old that he raped. Staff accepted the girl’s story of being impregnated by a 14 year-old boyfriend…despite her not knowing his name, address, or phone number.
6. Andrew King benefited from one of Planned Parenthood’s cover-up abortions in 1982. He continued preying on girls for over 25 years.
7. John Haller coerced his 14 year-old victim into an abortion at Planned Parenthood; he paid the bill while claiming to be her “stepbrother.”
8. Adam Gault brought his teenage victim to Planned Parenthood for an abortion, too.
9. Gray David Woods also received a helping hand.
10. Kevon Walker did as well.
Keep in mind that shame and fear cause many victims to remain silent. The truth is, there’s no way to know just how many crimes Planned Parenthood has helped cover up.

So, how can we stop this type of rape enablement? Not funding it would be a good start. Tell Congress that Planned Parenthood’s half billion dollar subsidy should go to federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) and community health centers (CHCs) instead. Not only are they more accessible, they also offer services Planned Parenthood won’t. Last year, FQHCs performed over five hundred thousand mammograms. Planned Parenthood? Zero.
In her entry, Danielle said that “if you don’t support Planned Parenthood, you don’t support 14-year-old me.” Given that Planned Parenthood assists the type of men who preyed on her, I have to disagree.
