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 (LifeSiteNews.com) – 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.

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.
