Outrage Texas Style
Eldorado, TX-- When state authorities raided the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints facility in Eldorado, Texas, it exposed the fact that some people and organizations involved in the cover-up of child sexual abuse are not the targets of such investigations - even when overwhelming evidence identifies the perpetrators.
During a three-month undercover investigation, Life Dynamics Incorporated of Denton, Texas recorded over 800 calls to Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across America - including Texas. The female caller portrayed a 13-year-old girl who was pregnant by an adult and wanted an abortion in order to hide the illegal sexual relationship from her parents and the authorities. On the tapes, many of the clinic workers are heard telling the caller that this situation was unlawful and that they were legally mandated to report it to the state. However, even after acknowledging this, 91 percent of the 800 facilities contacted agreed to illegally conceal it. Representatives of these organizations--often operating on tax dollars--routinely instructed a child who they believed to be a sexual assault victim to:
- lie about or conceal her age or the age of the man who impregnated her
- participate in illegal activity in order to circumvent the state's parental notification law
- use a fictitious name, phone number or address when she came to the facility
- keep the situation hidden by altering what she would say when she came to the facility
- be more careful about what information she gave out and to whom
Many clinic representatives told the caller that they deal with this situation "all the time" and that the advice they were giving her is the way they normally handle it. And some of the most outrageous calls came from Texas. "The tapes from our investigation clearly prove that these people are running a statewide pedophile protection racket," said Life Dynamics President, Mark Crutcher, "and our law enforcement agencies are knowingly letting them get away with it."
Crutcher also points out that the situation in Eldorado affects only a tiny fraction of the potential child sexual abuse victims in Texas, while Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities see them by the tens-of-thousands every year. He calls the selective enforcement of laws designed to protect Texas children from sexual predators, "a disgrace, a scandal and an embarrassment to our state."
