Man takes child to Houston abortion clinic to hide rape

Douglas A Ring

In May of 2010, Douglas Wayne Ring was arrested after sexually abusing a female relative for years after he took the teen for an abortion.

Authorities say the attacks began when the girl was 8 years old and continued until she was 20. According to reports, the victim became pregnant three times starting when she was 16.

The first time she testified that she after she discovered that she was pregnant Ring took her to a clinic in Houston where she had an abortion.

Life Dynamics, an organization located in Denton, Texas reviewed hundreds of criminal cases where adult men were raping their young victims, sometimes for years.

In July of 2014, the group’s findings were released in a report they entitled, “The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse” and published on the website

Life Dynamics points out that Ring’s abuse continued for many years after the abortion, making it clear that the abortion facility did not file a report.

Despite the fact that the child was taken before medical personnel at a Houston abortion clinic, aborted, and returned into the hands of her sexual rapist, with no report filed, she continued to be assaulted and became pregnant two more times by Ring.

In 2005, the victim finally reported the abuse to authorities.

A Brazoria County grand jury indicted Ring on charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and sexual assault. In 2010, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

How is it that abortion workers, in a state that requires mandatory reporting by health care workers, were not investigated or charged in their failure to report these crimes?
