On November 5 police arrested former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky (pictured right) and charged him with 40 counts of child molestation after the release of a shocking grand jury report alleging he had sexually abused eight children over the course of a decade.
Within days Penn State president Graham Spanier and legendary football coach Joe Paterno were fired for overlooking the alleged crimes, while vice president of business and finance Gary Schultz and athletic director Tim Curley, both also forced out, were criminally charged with failing to notify authorities of the alleged crimes and lying to the grand jury.
These crimes are “alleged” because there is no evidence. There is only testimony from former victims and eye-witnesses.
Yet mainstream media is aghast. According to BleacherReport.com:
[T]he preponderance of evidence against Sandusky in this case arguably makes this the most rational and well-thought-out (not to mention, if true, deserved) tar-and-feathering the national media has ever been part of.
Government officials are also aghast. Only one day after Republican U.S. Congressman Patrick Meehan called for a federal investigation of Penn State for potentially violating mandated reporting laws, the Department of Education announced it was launching just such an investigation.
Progressive comedian Jon Stewart is likewise aghast. In response to rioters protesting Paterno’s ouster, Stewart said:
“See, I get that it’s probably hard for you to believe that this guy [Paterno] you think is infallible and this program you think is sacred could hide such heinous activities, but there is some precedent for that,” Stewart said. He was referring to the Catholic church….
The hypocrisy of the press, the feds, and liberal luminaries is staggering, of course, because there is a pedophile-protecting institution they hold much more sacred than the Catholic Church, and that is Planned Parenthood.
Furthermore, in the case of Planned Parenthood, there is usually evidence, not just allegations, of child sex abuse: pregnancy.
Examples of documented instances of Planned Parenthood’s sex abuse cover-up, compiled by Americans United for Life:
- 1999, Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, San Francisco: Although an 11-yr-old girl told staff she had been raped by her 17-yr-old boyfriend, PPGG not only failed to report the suspected child sex abuse to authorities as mandated by law, it featured a note from the girl thanking PPGG for helping keep the crime quiet (click to enlarge)….
- 2001, Planned Parenthood of Northern New England: In a Vermont State House hearing on parental notification it was learned that 12 girls under age 16 had gotten abortions at Planned Parenthood but PP never reported the suspected child abuse. PPNNE CEO Nancy Mosher testified she understood PP had a “legal obligation to report instances of sexual assault” but did not.
- 2002, Planned Parenthood, Santa Clara, California: A 39-yr-old man took his 13-yr-old stepdaughter first for a pregnancy test in the summer and then for an abortion in December. PP failed to report the suspected sex abuse, enabling the perpetrator to resume the crime several more months until the girl’s mother found the medical records.
- 2004, Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio Region: “Jane Roe” filed and settled a civil suit against this PP for aborting her at age 14 after she had been impregnated by her 22-yr-old soccer coach. PP failed to report the suspected abuse to authorities and also failed to notify her parents, both required by law.
2006, Planned Parenthood, Norwich, Connecticut: Committed three abortions on a 14-yr-old girl impregnated by 21-yr-old Kevon Walker, who was later charged with second degree sexual assault, no thanks to Planned Parenthood, which never reported the abuse to authorities.
2007, Planned Parenthood, Cincinnati, Ohio: At age 16, Denise Fairbanks was taken this PP for an abortion by her father, who had been sexually abusing her for four years, finally impregnating her. Planned Parenthood never reported the abuse as mandated by law, enabling it to continue another 1-1/2 yrs, as Fairbanks alleged in a civil suit she filed against PP.
2007, Planned Parenthood, West Hartford, Connecticut: After police discovered 15-yr-old runaway Danielle Cramer locked up under the stairs in the home of 41-yr-old Adam Gault (pictured left) it came to light that Gault had taken Cramer for an abortion at this PP, which never reported the suspected sexual abuse to authorities.
Then there are Live Action’s undercover investigations, which show a willingness on the part of Planned Parenthoods in Alabama, Arizona, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Wisconsin to cover up child sex abuse; and in New Jersey, New York, Virginia, and Washington, D.C., to cover up underage sex trafficking.
Penn State clearly has nothing on Planned Parenthood.
Cover-up of child sex abuse at Planned Parenthoods is widespread across the U.S. and across decades. Were scenarios matched, state attorneys general and grand juries around the nation would be investigating Planned Parenthoods, as would federal agencies. Planned Parenthood employees even suspected of complicity would be fired, as would affiliate CEOs and the federal CEO, Cecile Richards.
In April 2011, when LA’s sex trafficking videos were all over the news, Time magazine included Richards in its list of 100 “most influential people in the world”…
Not to be outdone, Huffington Post last month included Richards in its list of top 100 “game changers,” the liberal world’s best and brightest “innovators, visionaries, and leaders.”
Earlier this year President Obama threatened to hold the entire national budget hostage if Republican House members persisted in attempting to defund Planned Parenthood.
And in September Obama’s Department of Health and Human Services did an end run around the State of New Hampshire to award a no-bid contract to the very same Planned Parenthood of Northern New England whose CEO 10 years before had testified it did not report suspected child abuse as mandated by law.
Meanwhile, also during the height of Planned Parenthood’s trafficking scandal this spring, Hollywood elites such as Scarlett Johansson, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Kathleen Turner (pictured above) came to the pedophile protector’s defense.
With liberals and abortion supporters it’s not the crime that really matters, it’s who is committing the crime.
