Judge to Planned Parenthood: Turn Over Records

Last October, I posted on a significant case working its way through Ohio courts in the Cincinnati area. The facts of this case were succintly put by Peter Bronson in his piece in the Cincinnati Enquirer:

All it took last year for a 14-year-old "Jane Roe" was a cell phone number. A staffer at a local Planned Parenthood clinic called the number and got permission - from a 21-year-old man who was molesting the girl and coerced her into an abortion.

The man, now in prison, pretended to be her father on the phone, then posed as her brother at the clinic. He paid with his credit card, and had the girl injected with Depo-Provera birth control, so he could resume having sex with her three days later.

"Jane Roe presented her school identification card, which showed that she was a junior high school student," a lawsuit by the girl's parents says. "(He) presented his Ohio driver's license, which showed that he was 21 years of age and his last name was different than Jane Roe's. (Planned Parenthood) did not question (either) about the differences in their ages or their different last names."

And that was under Ohio's parent notification law. State law also requires notice to law enforcement, because a girl 13 or under who seeks an abortion is automatically a victim of rape.

The suit brought by the parents of the girl claim that PP failed to notify the parents of their minor daughter's abortion; failed to notify law enforcement of the suspect and unusual circumstances of this case in that a minor was having sex with an adult; and failed to fully inform the girl of the abortion procedure and its consequences.

Well, there was a victory for the good guys last week. The Enquirer reported that a Cincinnati judge ordered PP to turn over all of its records of girls under 18 who have obtained abortions at that clinic.

Attorney Brian Hurley, who represents the family, said the information is needed to determine whether the abortion given to his client without parental consent is an isolated issue or a pattern of activity.

Pattern of activity indeed! Perhaps this is the big case that exposes PP for the reality that it is. With this attorney, I am confident that victory will be forthcoming. Additionally, Mr. Hurley appeared on Bill O'Reilly this evening as the case is gaining national attention.

Read the Enquirer piece here.

Mr. Hurley needs prayers but he also needs money (as Ryder can testify having worked on the NOW v. Scheidler litigation.) Send your donations to:
