Shocking Tape Reveals Abuses at

West Virginia’s Planned Parenthood Clinic in Vienna


West Virginians for Life has obtained an audio recording of a call made to the Planned Parenthood clinic near Parkersburg. In the audio, the female caller represents herself as a 13 year-old girl who was impregnated by a 22 year-old man. The call revealed possible violations of West Virginia law. Most shocking however, is the lack of action on the part of Planned Parenthood to intervene in an illegal and abusive relationship. Click Here to listen. (3.3 Mb WMA file)

It is precisely because of such atrocities above, that we need to improve the current Parent’s Right to Know law already on the books in West Virginia.

The Parent’s Right to Know Act would allow parents and appropriate law enforcement authorities to protect our children by requiring abortionists to notify parents of thteen-pregnancy-piceir minor child’s pending abortion and exposing sexual abuse.
