Planned Parenthood fights bid to force it to report child rape

Planned Parenthood Golden Gate, the very same one that boasted on its Web site that it covered up the rape of an 11-year-old girl, now wants its supporters to "take action" against a "dangerous new initiative" that would force it to report child rape. From its action alert:

The California Attorney General's office recently issued an official title and summary for a new anti-choice ballot initiative. The title of the new initiative is "Mandatory Reporting of Pregnancies and Sexually Transmitted Infections in Minors as Abuse."

This dangerous new initiative seeks to amend the constitution and current law to require mandated reporters, like Planned Parenthood, to report any diagnosis of pregnancy or sexually transmitted infection in patients under 16 as abuse, regardless of the age of their sexual partner.

The estimated financial impact to the state is approximately $11 million for health and social services costs and costs to local law enforcement and the courts.
Note that Planned Parenthood Golden Gate gives a figure for the "estimated financial impact" of reporting such abuse. Apparently we taxpayers would be far better off if sex crimes against children were never reported.

This, from the heavily taxpayer-subsidized Planned Parenthood branch that funded the notorious "Superhero for Choice" animation, which depicted a Planned Parenthood "superhero" murdering peaceful pro-lifers:
