Pro-life organizations and concerned parents in the Hoosier State want legal action taken against abortionists who may have facilitated child abuse against minors.
Dozens of consumer complaints have been filed with the Indiana attorney general's office against nine abortionists who are accused of failing to report abortions on girls under 16 – which the abortionists are required by state law to do.
"These girls are all under the age of 16. We know that at least two of them were 12 and 13 years old; several are 14 years old," says Mike Fichter of Indiana Right to Life.
The pro-life group identifies the abortionists: Jeffrey Glazer, Caitlin Bernard, Cassandra Cashman, Carol Dellinger, Mandy Gittler, Kathleen Glover, Martin Haskell, Resad Pasic, and Sarah Turner.
According to Fichter, state law specifies that abortionists are to report to two state agencies abortions on minors within 72 hours of the abortion so authorities can investigate to determine if the girls were molested by pedophiles – and if prosecution occurred. "We're also asking for the licenses of every doctor who allegedly failed to report to be suspended pending these investigations," he adds.
Forty-eight consumer complaints have been filed against the doctors who have aborted preborn children in all of the state's licensed abortion clinics. Eleven of those complaints, says IRTL, were filed against one abortionist: Glazer.
The laws are in place as a safety net to protect children from sexual abuse, but the laws and safety of the children were apparently ignored, says Fichter – "which means the majority of these young girls probably went right back into the abusive situations that led them into the abortion clinic in the first place."
Indiana Right to life has also provided evidence to county prosecutors arguing that the abortion industry shouldn't get a pass from fulfilling state law and should pay a price for abusing it.
The Indiana pro-life group isn't alone in its quest to hold accountable those who fail to report known sexual abuse. The pro-life group Live Action has produced a seven-part "docu-series" in its long-standing investigation of Planned Parenthood counseling underage girls in how to obtain an abortion and protect their older molester. Time after time, the abortion conglomerate's workers did do the abortions, sent the girls back to their pedophile boyfriend, and did not report it to police – the result being, essentially, that the pedophile gets a pass from prosecution.
Alison Centofante, a spokeswoman for Live Action, explains that her organization is waiting for a response to its request for a federal investigation of Planned Parenthood.
"We have victim testimonials proving that [this is happening]," she shares. "[We have] former managers of Planned Parenthood talking about taking part in that out of fear of the red tape and how hard it might be to actually report .... It's just further proof that this organization shouldn't be receiving our taxpayer dollars and is caught up in so many abuses."
Centofante recalls the abuse that one particular pre-teen suffered: "I think of a girl named Denise Fairbanks who went in multiple times and was taken in and [reported to clinic workers] about the abuse that was happening – and the staffers did nothing to help her and the abuse continued."
Recently, numerous members of Congress spoke during a DC press conference about a letter with their signatures asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to conduct an investigation, but there's been no response so far. Meanwhile, the agency is considering new rules to strip the nation's largest abortion chain of Title X tax dollars.
