Planned Parenthood Alabama ‘Bending the Rules’ of Mandatory Reporting

Employee Admits ‘Bending the Rules’ for Sexual Abuse

This is an attempt by pro-abortion folks to deliberately undermine enforcement of current laws against statutory rape.  Does anyone reading this have standing and cause to file a complaint with the Alabama Medical Association against this Dr. Bates?  I ask rather than encourage.  This is hearsay evidence; this doctor might instead be of the complete opposite mind.

BIRMINGHAM, June 30, 2009 ( – A Planned Parenthood counselor in Birmingham was caught on hidden camera telling an alleged 14-year-old statutory rape victim that the clinic “does sometimes bend the rules a little bit” rather than report sexual abuse to state authorities. This is the seventh Planned Parenthood clinic implicated in a multi-state child abuse scandal involving the deliberate and unlawful suppression of evidence of statutory rape. (View video here )

She then tells Rose that the clinic manager, OB/GYN Dr. Desiree Bates, “sometimes does bend the rules a little bit” and states that “whatever you tell us stays within these walls” and “we can’t disclose any information to anybody.”

However, Alabama code 26-14-3 requires [emphasis mine] health professionals to disclose suspected cases of sexual abuse to state officials immediately.
