Lila Rose, an 18-year-old sophomore at the University of California Los Angeles, visited a Planned Parenthood clinic in the city, posing as a 15-year-old impregnated by her 23-year-old boyfriend. The visit was part of an investigation for The Advocate, a new pro-life magazine distributed on the UCLA campus. California law requires abortion clinics to report instances of statutory rape to police. The age of consent in California is 16. In covertly-filmed video of the meeting between Rose and an unnamed Planned Parenthood employee, the staffer is heard to tell Rose: "If you're 15, we have to report it ... If you're not, if you're older than that, then we don't need to." "Okay, but if I just say I'm not 15, then it's different?" Rose asks. "You could say 16," the worker replies, later adding, "Just figure out a birth date that works. And I don't know anything." Other parts of the video clip show the manager of another Planned Parenthood clinic encouraging Rose to seek an abortion.
