Legal victories -- one step at a time

Yesterday's local pro-life world heard the news that a judge ruled that in a particular case, Planned Parenthood's doctor breached a legal duty of obtaining informed consent before performing an abortion on a 14 year old girl. The case has been brought to court because the 14 year old girl was pregnant by her 22 year old soccer coach. After the abortion that the coach sought, the girl continued to be abused. Legally, statutory rape must be reported to authorities by Planned Parenthood, pregnancy resource centers or any other agency.
