Planned Parenthood Rape Cover-up: Is a Sting Operation Ethical?
Planned Parenthood has covered up another rape. Or did they?
Rape cover upLifeNews reports,
Lila Rose, a UCLA student journalist and president of right-to-life advocacy group Live Action, posing as a 13-year-old seeking abortion. In an appointment with a Planned Parenthood nurse, Rose says she has been impregnated by a 31-year-old man, a clear case of child molestation punishable as a felony under Indiana state law.
On tape, the nurse acknowledges her responsibility to report the abuse, but assures Rose she will not. The nurse says, “I am supposed to report to Child Protective Services,” but tells Rose, “Okay, I didn’t hear the age [of the 31-year-old]. I don’t want to know the age.”
She then instructs Rose how to obtain a secret abortion by crossing state lines to avoid Indiana’s parental consent law.
The nurse also coaches Rose to cover for the 31-year-old man by saying he is only 14. She says, “You’ve seen him around, you know he’s 14, he’s in your grade and whatever. You know what I mean.”
The diminutive and talented Lila Rose can act like and pass for a 13 year-old and appeared on Hannity and Colmes Friday December 5th.
The liberal Alan Colmes went after Lila for misleading Planned Parenthood and “filing a false report” and taking up “valuable staff time” for a problem that did not exist.
Did Lila Rose cross an ethical line in a sting operation on Planned Parenthood?
Your Business Blogger(R) teaches business ethics at the local college. The bright line in ethics is Quo Bono? Who Benefits?
Is there unjust enrichment?
Lila did not enrich herself by exposing a malicious, felonious intent of a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.
Even though posed Lila as a 13 year-old, is this action actionable? Is it a lie?
I would submit that Lila’s act was a misdirection that all businesses should welcome and use.
Decades ago Your Business Blogger(R) worked as a sales rep for a manufacturer producing a private label product for a national retailer. It was a part of my job description to regularly “shop” my client to test their salesman’s product knowledge, sales techniques, in store displays and product availability.
I reported my findings to the store manager and my boss.
I did indeed take up “valuable staff time” as Colmes would charge in a sting operation. Managers would recognize this exercise as the ‘control’ part of managing. To learn what the store is doing right.
Or, in the case of Planned Parenthood, what the business is doing wrong.
Planned Parenthood should thank Lila Rose for acting as a “mystery shopper” providing valuable feedback on the conduct of the Planned Parenthood abortion operations.

Planned Parenthood does not have the integrity to process the 360 millions of our tax dollars. Planned Parenthood should be defunded.
And Planned Parenthood president, Cecile Richards (with her million dollar salary), and the so called ‘Freedom of Choice Act’ FOCA should be stopped. Join FightFOCA.com
