When Lila Rose went undercover at Planned Parenthood in Bloomington, she posed as a 13-year-old girl impregnated by a 31-year-old man. In the video, the nurse acknowledges that she is required by law to report the abuse to Child Protective Services, but assures Rose that she won’t. She then coaches Rose on how to circumvent parental notification laws by going out of state for the abortion, and tells her to lie about her boyfriend’s age. The Planned Parenthood employee was suspended and then fired. Following the release of the video, Indiana Attorney General Steve Carter opened an investigation into Planned Parenthood.
