AG wants tape of Birmingham Planned Parenthood

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Attorney General Troy King has asked for a copy of an audio tape of a Birmingham Planned Parenthood staffer allegedly saying rules are sometimes bent at the clinic.

The tape was made by a California-based group that is against abortion and has done similar operations at clinics in other states.

To make the tape, the organization said Lila Rose posed as a 14-year-old girl who was impregnated by her 31-year-old boyfriend and needed a secret abortion at the clinic last year.

Rose, who is a 20-year-old student, said the clinic staffer told her the manager "sometimes does bend the rules a bit" by not informing police of sexual abuse.

King said he wants a copy to see if the clinic staffer broke any state law.
