Does it bother any of our law officials or lawmakers that abortion clinics are performing abortions on girls who are victims of predatory sexual assault and returning them to the predators without reporting it? It bothers me. I spent many years gathering evidence of this kind of abuse for a report published by the Texas pro-life group, Life Dynamics only a few years ago. The actual case summaries published in that report will make your stomach turn. It horrified me to read the graphic details of a child being abused and then in many cases returned to the rapist after receiving an abortion. Tragically, I have yet another case to report involving a pregnant teen who was taken for an abortion at a Planned Parenthood to cover the sexual abuse of yet another pedophile.
Grey David Woods met his victim in 2007. She was the 12 year-old daughter of a girlfriend he eventually moved in with when, for the first time, according to the court document Woods began “touching” the child. Woods continued his abuse and when the little girl told her mother, her pleas were ignored. Eventually, Woods who physically abused and photographed the child, daily began to have sexual intercourse with the victim and sadly her own mother participated as well.
In the fall of 2010, the victim who was 15 years old, learned that she was pregnant. Woods and the child’s mother told her to get an abortion. So, according to the document, in mid-January 2011, the mother drove the teen to a California Planned Parenthood facility to undergo an abortion procedure. The child was in her second trimester requiring a two-day procedure. To cover for her pedophile boyfriend, the mother told the staff at Planned Parenthood that an unnamed boy had gotten the teen pregnant. And, that was all Planned Parenthood apparently needed to hear, because, according to the document, they performed the procedure. The victim did not tell the truth about what had happened because she was concerned that she would get in trouble, and/or that her mother would get in trouble. Less than two weeks after the victim had the abortion, Wood resumed having sex with her.
After several more months of abuse, in January of 2012, the victim called the police on Woods because he became violent towards her and her mother. Tragically, she did not tell police about the sexual abuse for fear she would get taken away from her mother. Shortly after this incident, the victim went to Virginia to live with a friend. It wasn’t until the summer of 2012 when police were alerted to the sexual abuse, almost two years after the child’s abortion at Planned Parenthood.
On August 9,2012, Wood’s new girlfriend whom he met online, contacted the sheriff’s department after she discovered that two computer memory sticks Wood’s gave to her to “destroy” possessed child pornography. After police executed a search warrant and seized Woods’ computer, a forensic examiner found “thousands” of pornographic pictures and videos depicting the teen. As a result, Woods along with the victim’s mother were arrested.
The mother cooperated with police and plead guilty to committing lewd acts with a minor, felony child abuse, and felony accessory after the fact. A California jury convicted Woods on 16 counts of sexual abuse of his girlfriend’s underage daughter. Wood’s plead guilty to a 17th count of possession of child pornography. In April of 2014, trial court sentenced Woods to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus an additional 53 years in prison.
This is not the only case where a child was sexually assaulted, impregnated, and taken to either an abortion clinic or a Planned Parenthood to terminate the pregnancy and cover for the pedophile. In fact, an Arizona case charging an 18 year-old man with 27 counts of sexual assault and abuse revealed, that according to police reports, a Planned Parenthood counselor told one of the alleged victims and her mother at an abortion consultation that it “wasn’t worth the hassle” to report that the minor had been raped. After that, the perpetrator allegedly committed additional offenses against four other young females.
In another case, a kidnap victim who was being kept as a sex slave, was taken to a Planned Parenthood where she was given an abortion. At no time did the tax funded abortion giant report her to authorities for possible abuse. As a result she was returned back into the hands of her abusers.
And when a 31 year-old illegal immigrant farm worker in Washington state raped the then-11 year old daughter of the woman he was living with causing her to become pregnant – he knew where to take her to fix the problem: to Planned Parenthood.
CBS Seattle reported the story this way:
…31-year-old Luis Gonzalez-Jose raped the girl last year while her mother was in the shower at their home in Whatcom County and then took her to a Planned Parenthood in August to get an abortion. To conceal her rapist’s identity, the girl told Planned Parenthood employees that a 14-year-old boy impregnated her.
The girl later told Whatcom County authorities that Gonzalez-Jose told her that “it would be best for her” not to have the baby.
He pleaded guilty to second-degree rape of a child in April.
In addition to actual criminal cases, Live Action has documented the irresponsible way that Planned Parenthood covers for child sexual abusers. Several undercover investigations conducted by Live Action found eight Planned Parenthood clinics in five different states were willing to cover-up sexual abuse, disregarding mandatory suspected statutory rape reporting laws. Clinics also provided instructions on how to circumvent parental consent laws.
Something needs to change.
