A Planned Parenthood counselor intentionally noted a rape by an allegedly prolific teen sexual predator as consensual to avoid the ‘hassle’ of reporting it, according to a police report.
The encounter allegedly involved Tyler Kost, 18, from San Tan Valley, Arizona, who has been charged with sexually assaulting 11 girls between October 2009 and April 2014 – although cops believe he may have attacked as many as 18.
One of his alleged victims was a 15-year-old girl who became pregnant following the assault and when she underwent an abortion through Planned Parenthood last December, her mother told a member of staff about the attack, FoxNews.com reported.
‘The counselor intentionally miscoded the assault as a consensual encounter,’ a police report states.
‘The counselor told them that they did not want the hassle of having to report the assault to law enforcement as they were a mandatory reporter.’
Planned Parenthood Arizona told Fox they have contacted the Pinal County Sheriff’s Department and said, if the allegations are true, it would be a ‘serious violation’ of its policies.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu added that he was ‘troubled’ by the allegations about Planned Parenthood and said they had been forwarded to state officials by the victim’s mother.
‘If this is true, they should absolutely be held accountable,’ he said.
Kost has been indicted on nearly 30 felony counts, including multiple counts of sexual assault with a minor, sexual abuse with a minor and sexual conduct with a minor. He also faces a count of child molestation.
Pinal County Attorney Lando Voyles said the victims in the crimes alleged in the indictment issued Wednesday ranged from 12 to 17 years old.
Voyles said the offenses – which involved victims that Kost dated or knew – occurred between October 2009 and April 2014 meaning that Kost was 13 when the first offense allegedly took place.
But Voyles plans to try him as an adult on all charges.
‘In Arizona, once an individual turns 18, we don’t have a choice,’ Voyles said. ‘[State law] makes it fairly clear.’
Kost, a senior at Poston Butte High School, would face between 147 and nearly 334 years in prison if convicted of all the charges in the indictment, the prosecutor said.
Pinal County sheriff’s deputies arrested Kost two weeks ago, accusing him of being a serial sex predator who assaulted at least 18 students.
But Voyles said he could not comment on why the indictment accused Kost of crimes involving only 11 victims.
Babeu said the baby-faced Kost threatened and harassed victims to such an extent that two fled the state, and one attempted suicide.
‘This is a serious and serial sex offender and rapist,’ Babeu said.
The investigation was initiated after the Sheriff’s Office received a call March 25 from someone reporting that Kost had sexually abused and molested five teenage girls.
According to the indictment, none of the alleged sexual assaults occurred on a school campus.
Kost is accused of abusing the victims in his bedroom, in a parked car, a park and out in the desert.
In one case, Kost threatened, harassed and told one of the victims to kill herself, deputies said. The girl followed through and attempted suicide, but survived and was hospitalized.
While in the hospital, she allegedly got a message from Kost threatening that if she returned to school he would ‘make her life a living hell.’
In another case, a girl became pregnant after she was allegedly raped by Kost and ended up getting an abortion, the station KPHO reported.
‘He would assault these young female victims in their own bedrooms, in his bedroom, in the desert, at a community pool, at community parks,’ Babeu said.
Detectives said because he looked young and innocent, many people didn’t perceive him as a threat. His alleged victims included girls he had dated.
He was first jailed April 28 in connection with sex crimes against one victim and re-arrested three days later as sheriff’s investigators tied additional victims to the case.
Kost is scheduled to be arraigned on May 16.
Medical researchers are growing human organs in mice by implanting dead human baby organs into rodents, a practice that stands to gain greater scrutiny in light of undercover videos exposing what appears to be Planned Parenthood affiliates selling aborted baby parts to medical procurement companies like StemExpress.
In a fourth video released from the Center for Medical Progress (CMP), Planned Parenthood personnel can be seen sifting through aborted baby parts allegedly to show what parts can be salvaged and sold.
These mice or rats are created by removing a human organ such as a kidney from a dead human baby and implanting it into a mouse or rat for the purpose of medical research.
As reported in Live Science, Duke University medical student Eugene Gu co-authored a study released in January in which he said, “Our long-term goal is to grow human organs in animals, to end the human donor shortage.” According to the report, Gu is also founder and CEO of Redwood, California biotech company Ganogen, Inc.
“In the new study, Gu and his colleagues obtained human fetal kidneys from StemExpress, a Placerville, California-based company that supplies researchers with tissue from deceased adults and fetuses,” reported Live Science in January. Gu contends that the mothers consented to donation, and scientists were separated from the “donation process.”
StemExpress is a primary buyer of baby parts from Planned Parenthood as noted in a Breitbart News article on the details of a fifth CMP video that was released Tuesday.
Ramesh Akkina of the University of Colorado published on the “future prospects” for a “new generation” of research in January 2013. An abstract for that publication detailed that one model “is prepared by transplantation of human fetal liver, thymus and HSC.”
In Gu’s study, fetal kidneys were transplanted into rats that lacked immune systems in order to keep the organs from being rejected, according to Live Science. Researchers have also attempted transplanting fetal hearts.
CEO and founder of StemExpress, Cate Dyer, claimed that all donors consent to donating the aborted baby parts, according to Live Science. Questions have arisen, however, over whether the mothers donating are truly “informed” as required under parameters for organ donation. Live Science reported that Dyer assured that mothers were not compensated for their donation.
While the mothers may not be receiving direct compensation, the undercover investigative videos documenting Planned Parenthood affiliates show what appears to be financial dealings between these abortion providers and medical waste procurement dealers such as StemExpress.
Ethical questions over these experiments have also arisen over creating a potential incentive to induce a pregnant woman to choose abortion.
After Center for Medical Progress videos began hitting the media, StemExpress promptly acquired a restraining order against CMP regarding further release of videos that involve StemExpress.
CMP released the fifth undercover video Tuesday in which a Planned Parenthood research director appears speaking with undercover investigators about selling whole intact aborted babies for resale to medical researchers.

New Hampshire legislators stripped the state’s six Planned Parenthood clinics of state funds Wednesday, deleting roughly one third of their public funding.
The state’s Republican-led Executive Council rejected a $639,000 funding contract with Planned Parenthood, reported local ABC affiliate WMUR9. The Council cited a series of undercover videos in the meeting, which show top Planned Parenthood doctors discussing and participating in the harvesting, dissection, and distribution of aborted fetuses.

The Center for Medical Progress plans to release more footage, and has alleged Planned Parenthood is illegally selling the aborted baby parts for profit. But Planned Parenthood maintains the fees it charges are legally legitimate and that they do not profit from the exchange.

The New Hampshire Council told Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan the state should launch an investigation into local Planned Parenthood clinics, but the Attorney General’s office told WMUR9 it’s not pursuing the matter.
