This isn’t just limited to No.Carolina…this is another case in Columbus
When a 14-year-old girl showed up at a Cincinnati abortion clinic in 2004 accompanied by a 21-year-old who was not her relative, clinic officials should have suspected statutory rape, an attorney for the girl’s parents told the Ohio Supreme Court today.
Instead, Planned Parenthood performed the abortion without alerting the girl’s parents or the authorities.
The girl’s parents are suing Planned Parenthood, alleging that the nonprofit organization has systematically ignored evidence of abuse against girls who visit Planned Parenthood’s 37 Ohio clinics for abortions.
The case took a detour from the Hamilton County Court of Common Pleas to the Ohio Supreme Court to decide one issue: Should Planned Parenthood be compelled to turn over medical records albeit with names left out – for dozens of other girls who may have been victimized?
Attorneys for the Hamilton County girl say yes.
