When is a partner not a partner?

When is a partner not a partner?

Yesterday, an Indiana judge ruled that Planned Parenthood has to turn over medical records on 84 underage girls who may have been pregnant before turning 14. In Indiana the age of consent is 14, thus for them to be pregnant means that they were raped and molested, statutorily or otherwise.

What struck me was the way the Associated Press chose to phrase it.

Planned Parenthood tried to stop the seizure, arguing that investigators were on a ‘‘fishing expedition,” possibly to identify the partners of sexually active 12- and 13-year-olds. None of the 84 patients has received an abortion, according to Planned Parenthood.

Pregnant 12-year-old girls don’t have sexual partners; they have molesters or rapists. With this reasoning, you may as well call the pervert priests who molested all those boys their partners. But of course, when it comes to the “sacrament” of abortion, all rhetoric and logic bows in service to the cause of justifying it. A women’s “right to choose” comes before all considerations, even protecting children from molesters.

It’s good for business, don’t you know?
