Planned Parenthood Perversity (They Defend Statutory Rape.)

Rich Lowry on National Review Online says:

Can you say “perverse”? Planned Parenthood in Indiana and Kansas is effectively fighting to protect child rapists from potential prosecution in two high-profile legal fights. That an organization devoted to the interests of women finds itself in this position is a cautionary tale of abortion-rights extremism.

The loopiest free-sex advocates might imagine that after sex-ed courses on how to put a condom on a banana, 13-year-old girls blissfully explore their bodies with 13-year-old boys. Put aside that this vision will make most parents gag — it’s not how it works. Teen sex often involves adult men exploiting teen girls. Estimates are that in 60 percent or more of teen births, the father is an adult. A California study found that the fathers in births to junior-high-school mothers were on average nearly 7 years older.

Why would a feminist organization not be eager to cooperate in a fight against the sexual exploitation of young girls? Well, Planned Parenthood represents that wing of the feminist billed as “sex positive.” Although that phrase doesn’t quite capture it. Planned Parenthood is developing the “statutory rape-positive” wing of feminism.

These feminists are unwilling to pass judgment on any sex in any circumstances, don’t care if parents are cut out of the equation entirely, believe the right to an abortion trumps any other consideration, and embrace a notion of privacy so sweeping it includes men who have, under law, raped their young sexual partners. If only Michael Jackson were interested in girls instead of boys, he might, in the right circumstances, have a friend in Planned Parenthood.

Key Democrats from Hillary Clinton to Howard Dean have of late said their party needs to become more moderate on abortion. They could add substance to the rhetoric by opposing Planned Parenthood’s position in these cases. Of course, that will never happen. The abortion absolutists control the Democratic party, a sad fact for those Americans who have moral qualms about abortion, but a happy one for men who impregnate 13-year-olds.

Sacrificing girls to rapists to make sure the Liberal Sacrament of Abortion is performed as often as possible. Keep that in mind when the Left wants to jam some more fascism down our throats in the name of "the children."

It says a lot that you felt compelled to cut out the description of the actual case and just keep the rhetoric.

How does fighting against state intrusion into private medical histories and erasing the doctor-patient privilege "defend statory rape" anyways?

It says even more when you're more sympathetic to the predators than the victims of statutory rape by trying to cast this as an intrusion into doctor-patient privacy rights instead of part of the militant fascist-liberal "No Fetus Left Alive" agenda.

The pertinent details were linked and cut for space. If this was Instapundit, there would've only been a link and the word, "Yeah," so your complaint is moot.

Ideological honesty test: Does Rush Limbaugh deserve to have a politically-motivated fishing expedition done on his medical records which will then be distributed to the media?

(Oh, really? Explain that hypocrisy?)

Allowing the bogus issue of "privacy" to protect adult sexual predators would declare open season on young girls to the point Roman Polanski would wonder why he's still hiding in France.
