Ohio clinics aborting behind the backs of teens' parents

abortion clinic examination roomA pro-life group would like to hold someone accountable for an apparent violation of Ohio's parental notification law for abortions.

In the Buckeye State, the law states that if a minor girl seeks an abortion, parents must consent before the baby is terminated – but this does not always take place.

Cheryl Sullenger of Operation Rescue says there are many instances where abortion facilities – such as Planned Parenthoods – have a record of violating Ohio’s parental notification law when it comes to teen abortions.

“In Akron, we have found a complaint that we received through an open-records request that shows that there was a complaint against the Akron Planned Parenthood for conducting an abortion on a 16-year-old without parental consent,” the pro-life activist shared.

The complaint was filed by the father of the girl in July of last year. It was filed with the state attorney general's office and assigned to two investigators but nothing more has been revealed about the incident.

“It seems to have stalled – as far as any notations of progress on the investigation,” Sullenger informed. “We're working with a pro-life group in Ohio to try to get to the bottom of what happened here and the resolution of this case – and whether or not someone was prosecuted.”

If an abortion clinic does violate the law, Sullenger maintains it is important that a prosecution take place so the abortion industry doesn't get a free pass.

The case is reminiscent of undercover investigations over the past two decades by Life Dynamics and Live Action, which proved Planned Parenthood and other abortion clinics were helping underage girls get abortions and violating state laws for not notifying parents – and in some cases, returning the girls to their molesters.
