|Girls protest Planned Parenthood clinic|
Denise Fairbanks from Ohio finally got some justice after years of being sexual abused by her father and Planned Parenthood knowingly did nothing to help her.
The Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Ohio, settled a lawsuit with Denise Fairbanks who had an abortion in their clinic at the age of 16 when they failed to report the rape to the authorities.
The Life Legal Defense Foundation, a pro-life legal group, helped the girl with the lawsuit. Fairbanks had been sexually abused since age 13. She became pregnant by her father at 16. Her father took her to the local Planned Parenthood clinic for an abortion.
The girl told the staff at the clinic that her father forced her to have sex, but they chose not to report the abuse to authorities nor did they make any inquiry about the alleged abuse, allowing the father to continue raping his daughter. By law Planned Parenthood must report rape cases to the local police.
After the abortion, Fairbanks returned home with her abusive father, where she remained for another year-and-a-half. Her father was finally arrested a year later after she confided in her basketball coach and he reported the abuse to police. The father was arrested, later was found guilty of rape and he was jailed.
“This is just one of multiple cases which have demonstrated Planned Parenthood’s willingness to cover up for sex offenders,” Dana Cody, Executive Director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation said.
This is not an isolated incident. There have been other cases where Planned Parenthood was forced to settle lawsuits for knowingly refusing to help protect sex abuse victims by failing to report sex abuse to local police.
