A Planned Parenthood affiliate in Arizona was found civilly
liable for failing to report the fact that the clinic had performed an abortion

the foster home where she was raped and impregnated a second time.

sexually assaulted by her mothers live-in boyfriend. Twice these assaults
resulted in the girl becoming pregnant. Both times, the perpetrator forced her

clinic did not report the abuse until after the second abortion took place.
After the crime was uncovered, the perpetrator was sentenced to approximately
30 years in prison.
An Oregon abortion clinic provided an abortion to an
eleven-year-old, yet failed to report the sexual abuse as required by state

In Connecticut the case of a ten-year-old girl who was

adult male who then raped her while she was unconscious. Days after her 13th
birthday, the perpetrator's mother took her to an abortion clinic in another
state, paid for the abortion, and then dropped her off 30 miles away from home.
Meanwhile, the girls mother had contacted the state police when she found her

post-abortion complications, complications which could have led to her death
had she not been returned to her mother, who quickly arranged for her treatment
by a local gynecologist.
A father in California came home unexpectedly early from
work one day to find his 15-year-old daughter had tried to commit suicide by
drug overdose. Only in that way did he learn that the girl had been impregnated
by her 33-year-old karate instructor. When this predator found out his victim
was pregnant, he told her he would commit suicide if she didnt have an
abortion. So, against her wishes and her deeply held belief that abortion was
murder, she had the abortion. Because of the grief and guilt she attempted

A 13-year-old Ohio girl was impregnated by her high school
coach, who then persuaded her to have an abortion. Planned Parenthood did not
report the abuse, nor did it comply with the state's own parental notification
law. Three days after the abortion, the perpetrator resumed having sex with the
girl, and then abandoned her. Only months later did the parents learn what had
happened. The perpetrator is serving a prison sentence; Planned Parenthood
disclaims all responsibility and is fighting a lawsuit by the parents.

Robert Estrada of Kansas sexually assaulted and impregnated
his stepdaughter, age 11, and then took her for an abortion. Central Womens
Services, the clinic which provided the abortion, did report the rape but instead
returned the girl to the care of her stepfather, where she and her

pregnancies and another abortion, which was also not reported. Estrada was
sentenced to 90 years in prison, his wife to a lesser term. The abortionist who
failed to report has not incurred any penalties.
Forty-one-year-old Adam Gault of Connecticut impregnated and
then procured an abortion at Planned Parenthood for a 15-year-old girl, who
along with two other women, formed Gault's harem. Although Gault initially denied he
had sexually assaulted the girl, as opposed to simply sheltering her as a
runaway, DNA tests established that he was the father of the aborted child.
Commented Gault's surprised attorney, "I thought that when a woman had a
termination of pregnancy, that that was the end of it, so to speak."
On May 7, 2007, Denise Fairbanks
filed suit against Planned Parenthood, Southwest Ohio Region for failing to

abused by her father from the time she was 13. When she became pregnant at age

Alert pro-lifers in Granite City, Illinois, provided police with critical
evidence that 41-year-old Jeffrey Cheshier had been sexually abusing a 15-year-old
girl for over a year. Cheshier brought the girl to Hope Clinic for Women for
an abortion, where he was spotted by the pro-life counselors as he was forcing
her into the clinic against her will. The victim later told police that
Cheshier had gotten her pregnant and forced her to have the abortion.
The photograph of Cheshier's car taken by pro-lifers corroborated her
story. The clinic never reported the situation. “Even as officers,
we see a lot of stuff but this is very disturbing to us," said
Sergeant Harold Edmonson of the Granite City Police. "I've been in
law enforcement 20 years and this is a first for me. We need to
make some stricter laws on this."
A 40-year-old Pennsylvania man was sentenced to 35 years in the state penitentiary
for sexual abuse of a 13-year-old, the daughter of his fiancée. Before the abuse
was discovered in 1999, the man had twice in the space of five months taken the
girl across state lines to an abortion clinic in Maryland for abortions. Although
the man and the girl had different last names and were clearly from out-of-state,
the clinic never made a report of suspected child abuse. In a prison interview,
the man admitted that, had he not been caught, in a few years, he would have moved
on from the girl he was abusing to her younger sister.
