A new report just released by the group Life Dynamics, Inc. shows documented criminal cases of men who raped innocent kids and when the child became pregnant they were taken, sometimes by the pedophile, and sometimes by another person to abortion clinics who failed to file abuse reports with the state.
According to the report, every state has mandatory reporting statutes.
Health workers should know that the pregnancy of an underage child is a clear sign of sexual activity. As a result, any child seeking an abortion should be reported for possible sexual abuse.
Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics Inc. explains, “In almost every case of adult men having sex with minor girls, the perpetrators are aware that the relationship is illegal and could land them in prison. They also know that one of the most likely ways for them to get caught is for their victims to become pregnant. When that happens, their back up plan is inevitably going to involve abortion. As a result, there is no place within the medical community where underage victims of sexual abuse are more likely to be found than at abortion clinics. The question is: how are these girls dealt with when they show up at those clinics?”
According to Life Dynamics, when an underage girl seeks an abortion, a pregnancy test, contraceptive drugs or devices, or treatment for a sexually transmitted disease,that is evidence of sexual intercourse involving a girl who cannot legally consent to sexual intercourse.
In one such case outlined by Life Dynamics, a 29 year old adult male raped his stepdaughter beginning when she was only 13 years-old and her own mother took her for an abortion to help conceal the crime.
This flies in the face of the excuses that an abortion clinic can decide which child is the victim of abuse or not. In some of the cases Life Dynamics outlined, the child was coerced to tell the clinic their boyfriend impregnated them, despite the fact that they were being raped by an adult.
According to Life Dynamics, court documents show that Xavier Sherron began having intercourse with his 13-year-old stepdaughter in late 2001 or early 2002.
In March of 2002, Sherron told his wife, Charlotte, that he had been having sex with the child and that she was pregnant.
As repulsive as this sounds, Charlotte, the victim’s mother, later testified that she tolerated the arrangement because she did not want to lose the financial support Sherron was providing.
The mom then scheduled an abortion at the Women’s Clinic in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, for her victimized daughter!
Life Dynamics says that it is evident this abortion clinic failed to file a report, since authorities were not notified until they were contacted months later by a relative who had become aware of the situation.
Sherron was eventually convicted of statutory rape and given 26 years in prison without the possibility of parole.
His wife, Charlotte Sherron was convicted of being an accessory after the fact and sentenced to three years in prison and two years of post-release supervision.
So, lets recap…. A man rapes a child. The child gets pregnant. The mother knows the child is being raped. The mother takes the child to an abortion clinic to conceal the rape. Because the child was taken by the mom- it seems as though she was able to convince the clinic the sexual activity leading to the pregnancy was not a crime, becoming an accomplice to the crime herself. But- the LAW requires that medical workers report when a young girl might – emphasis on might be a victim of abuse. The clinic failed to file the report – and was never charged !
Sadly this was not the only time these for-profit businesses disregarded mandatory reporting laws – read more horrific rape and cover-up stories here.
