Life Dynamics, Inc. a national pro-life group located in Denton , Texas has released the second part of their child predator investigation.

The new report details criminal convictions of child pedophiles who raped their victims and when they became pregnant the victim was taken to an abortion clinic or Planned Parenthood for an abortion concealing the crime.

The gist of Life Dynamics’ report is that the medical offices where victims were taken for their abortions are mandatory reporters and because of the clinic’s failure to report suspicion of abuse, the children continued to be raped, sometimes for many years after their abortions.

In once case documented by Life Dynamics, 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.

In June of 2007, a 15-year-old girl went missing for over a year in Connecticut.

According to several news sources, police found the fifteen year-old victim in the home of forty-one year old sexual predator, Adam Gault. According to police, the girl was held in a locked tiny room, about 3 feet high and 4 to 5 feet deep. The doorway was hidden by a bureau.

Gault, a dog trainer, was arrested with two women who lived in the house, 40-year-old Ann Murphy and Kimberly Cray, 26. The three were charged with conspiracy to commit unlawful restraint, conspiracy to commit risk of injury to a minor and interfering with police.

Adam Gault

Inside the home, where the teen was used by Gault for sex on a regular basis, authorities found a journal the girl had kept detailing her two-year sexual relationship with Gault.

In it, the victim revealed that she had once been impregnated by Gault and taken to Planned Parenthood in West Hartford for an abortion.

According to Life Dynamics, the time lapse between when the abortion occurred and when the victim was located makes it obvious that no report was filed by Planned Parenthood.

Gault was indicted for kidnapping and other charges related to the sexual assaults on the teen. He entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to 50 years in prison by a state judge who said he couldn’t decide whether Gault had a distorted view of reality or was genuinely evil. The women, Ann Murphy, 41, Gault’s partner, and Kimberly Cray, 27, were each sentenced to 10 years in prison, suspended after three years, and five years of probation

A statement by the teen victim was read in the courtroom: “Adam, you hurt me like nobody else has, and I hate you for it. I feel that you ruined me inside in so many different ways. How will I ever know what is the truth and what is a lie?

Just think about this for a moment. The teen was taken for an abortion to Planned Parenthood, who, had they filed a report, may have been rescued from her abusers. This is not a one time instance which accidentally fell through the cracks. As Life Dynamics points out, the failure to report statutory rape is a common practice inside the abortion lobby.

A 2002, undercover investigation from the Texas group, also confirms this. ( Listen to audio tapes of that investigation here)

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

“As horrific and indefensible as the pedophile priest situation is, in sheer numbers it pales when compared to what’s happening within America’s family planning establishment,” Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher.

Today, Life Dynamics, Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas has announced that they are launching a national litigation plan to educate attorneys on how they can help stop the scandal of family planning centers covering up for men who rape children.

Last week, Life Dynamics released the second part of their child predator investigation which covers actual criminal cases against pedophiles who used abortion to cover their crimes.

The report, entitled, “The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse”, clearly proves that the failure of family planning clinics to comply with mandatory reporting laws is having profound, real-world consequences for the victims of child sexual abuse.

Now, Life Dynamics is showing attorneys the opportunities that exist in this area of law and how to litigate these cases.

Child Predator Atty Project

Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher, explains, “In all 50 states, sexual activity with underage children is illegal. Every state also has mandatory reporting statutes that compel the reporting of reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to a designated law enforcement or child protective services agency. That entity is then responsible to investigate in order to determine whether a sexual offense has occurred. Those who are classified as mandatory reporters vary from state to state, but in every jurisdiction healthcare workers are included. The responsibility for determining that an underage girl has, or has not, been a victim of sexual abuse lies solely with the state. Healthcare workers have no obligation and no authority to investigate suspicions of child sexual abuse or make decisions about whether a crime has been committed. Whatever conclusions they might draw relative to these situations are unrelated to their mandatory reporting duties.”

Life Dynamics tells interested attorneys that Forbes Magazine once described sexual abuse litigation as “The Next Wave of Litigation.” In the article, Massachusetts trial attorney, Roderick MacLeish, Jr., stated that, “There is an absolute explosion of sexual abuse litigation, and there will continue to be. This is going to be a huge business.”

Crutcher elaborates on how this applies to litigation against family planning clinics, “America’s high rate of teen pregnancy is being driven by an epidemic of illicit sexual contact between underage girls and adult males. Life Dynamics has shown that this tragedy is being abetted by family planning service providers affiliated with organizations like Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation. The focus of the Forbes article was limited to the pedophile priest scandal in the Catholic Church and it failed to see the much larger picture. As horrific and indefensible as the pedophile priest situation is, in sheer numbers it pales when compared to what’s happening within America’s family planning establishment. Every day, these organizations have contact with thousands of sexually active minor girls – the majority of whom are victims of illegal sexual abuse. This scandal allows the abuse to continue with physical and emotional consequences that can be devastating for the victims. Representing the children and parents victimized by these groups fits the business model outlined in the article.”

Life Dynamics explains that in addition to the various criminal charges that could be brought against someone who violates mandatory reporting statutes, civil causes of action exist for, or on behalf of, any child who suffers physical or psychological injuries after being denied the protection of these statutes.

Plaintiffs in these lawsuits could be the minor child, her parents, or both.

The Texas organization has outlined possible civil remedies: ( Note this is a partial list. To see the full list visit the Attorney Project page on the Child Predators website !)

Tortious Interference with Parental Rights: It is common for family planning service providers to assist, or even encourage, minor children to conceal their sexual activity from their parents. Even in states that allow children to receive family planning services without the knowledge of their parents, providers of these services are still required to comply with mandatory reporting statutes. The agency that investigates the report could determine that an interview with the child’s parents is warranted. Therefore, anyone who violates the mandatory reporting statutes may be interfering with the parent-child relationship by denying the parents an opportunity to act in the best interests of their child.
Kidnapping or False Imprisonment: Taking a child without the authority of the child’s parents or guardian is kidnapping. Holding or confining a child without lawful authority is false imprisonment. This applies to any school district or state agency that takes a child for family planning services without her parent’s knowledge. Further, when a child is brought to a family planning service provider by anyone other than her parent or guardian, and the provider “keeps” her in the facility for the benefit of another (such as an adult who is having sexual relations with her) the facility becomes party to the tortious conduct. The cause of action is not related to the provision of services, but the circumstance under which the services are provided.

Civil Rights Violations: Whenever a reporting statute is violated, the girl involved is denied the protection of a law that was specifically intended to protect her. When that violation is by a state agency, a family planning services provider, or under color of law, a civil rights cause of action may exist. Statutory violations become civil rights issues when it can be demonstrated that the victim class is disproportionately made up of minorities.

In this case, it is well established that family planning service providers target minority communities, apply for government funds on that basis, and locate a disproportionate number of their facilities in or near those communities. The result is that African-American females now have abortions at a rate more than three times that of white females. Therefore, an underage girl may be less likely to have her sexual abuse investigated if she is black than if she is white.

Class Actions: Life Dynamics’ research shows that among family planning service providers, violations of mandatory reporting statutes are seldom, if ever, isolated events. Depending on the location of the facility and the demographic makeup of the clientele, Life Dynamics knows that the non-reporting rate generally exceeds 90 percent. In fact, during one of the undercover calls conducted by Life Dynamics, to family planning centers, a counselor volunteered to our caller that the facility she worked for had “never reported anyone.”

Clearly, this behavior opens the door for class action suits. The rules for bringing this type of litigation vary among state and federal courts and the qualification of the client as a representative member of a class will be determined by these factors.

Crutcher concludes, “Evidence needed to pursue litigation against family planning service providers is both current and readily available. Data put out by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation proves that they have had contact with hundreds of thousands of sexually active underage girls every year for more than three decades, and government documentation confirms those figures. The data also shows that in only a tiny fraction of these instances were reports of suspected abuse made.

“Since we began releasing the details of our investigation, neither of these organizations has altered their practices regarding this issue. The result is that the flaunting of mandatory reporting laws that we originally documented continues unabated. Given that they provide services to several thousand sexually active underage girls every day, it is clear that the number of potential plaintiffs is enormous and growing daily.

Life Dynamics says that whether attorneys are seasoned personal injury attorneys with an established practice, or one that is just getting started, their organizations’ litigation support services are offered free of charge.

To assist attorneys further, Life Dynamics has created a sample television spot and has offered to help create professional radio, television and print ads, as well.

Attorney Reflection on the Munoz Tragedy

A Reflection on the Munoz Tragedy
H/T Life Legal Defense Foundation

marlise-munoz2Dylanbenson1_ml_140211_16x9_608

Many in the pro-life community are reflecting on two tragic stories with very different outcomes: the Munoz situation in Texas and the Benson situation in Canada. In both, the wife and mother was declared brain dead. In the Benson story, Iver Benson, son of Dylan Benson and his now deceased wife, Robyn, has been allowed to live.

Texas Attorney Jeff Turner reflection on the tragedy of the Baby Munoz situation is compelling , he originally published it for Texans for Life – here. This blog has added images to his comments:

__________________________________________________________________________________________________

Jeff-Turner300x268On Friday, January 24, the 96th District Courtroom in Tarrant County, Texas was the stage for a tragic tale, not told by idiots, but still one “full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.” And by nothing, I mean a profound absence. The tale is one that will be retold more often as medical technology advances to keep people alive, in this case, Marlise Munoz, who in November 2013 suffered a pulmonary embolism when she was fourteen weeks into her pregnancy.

Teddy Bear JPS Signs

Her husband and her parents asked John Peter Smith Hospital to discontinue all life-sustaining treatment for her, which action indirectly would cause the death of her (and his) child in utero. They contend that the very doctors treating her reported that she was brain dead and recommended the withdrawal of such treatment. The hospital did not oblige their request, relying solely on a provision of the Texas Health & Safety Code that provides that a “person may not withdraw or withhold life-sustaining treatment under this subchapter from a pregnant woman.” (emphasis added).

Sue and son signs

Absent from the courtroom, however, was any mention of God as the Author of all human life, including that of Baby Munoz. The mystery of God’s purpose in permitting this tale to unfold will remain that—an impenetrable mystery. What can be known is that He willed Baby Munoz’ life into existence and that fact deserves some weight. It is congruent with America’s Judeo-Christian heritage that God be included in her judicial determinations. The United States Supreme Court still opens each session with “God save the United States and this honorable court.” Edith Jones, Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, placed a replicated Harlan Bible (named after Justice John Marshall Harlan’s personal Bible which he donated to the U.S. Supreme Court in 1906) prominently in her chambers “as a reminder to all who visit that we … remember our judgments are ultimately subject to a Divine standard.” The “Divine standard” is love: love of God and of neighbor, and love sometimes requires sacrifice of one’s own rights, interests, and desires for the benefit of another, like Baby Munoz. Love sometimes requires one to “wait for the Lord with courage.” Psalms 27:14. There was no mention of this “Divine standard” in the 96th District Court in determining the fate of Baby Munoz.

Troy Newman PrayingStephen Broden arms up

Also absent was any advocate for Mrs. Munoz or for Baby Munoz. Larry Thompson, the Assistant District Attorney who represented JPS Hospital, informed this writer that the appointment of an attorney ad litem or guardian ad litem had been considered; however, no such appointment was sought. This decision was a glaring error. An attorney appointed to zealously represent each party would have forced Mr. Munoz’ attorneys to prove his case. For example, does Mrs. Munoz’s medical condition satisfy the legal definition for “death?” The same Health & Safety Code states that a person is dead “when, according to ordinary standards of medical practice, there is irreversible cessation of the person’s spontaneous respiratory and circulatory functions.” It further states that “if artificial means of support preclude a determination that a person’s spontaneous respiratory and circulatory functions have ceased, the person is dead when, in the announced opinion of a physician, according to ordinary standards of medical practice, there is irreversible cessation of all spontaneous brain function. Death occurs when the relevant functions cease.” Death must be pronounced before a doctor can discontinue artificial or mechanical means of supporting a person’s respiratory and circulatory systems. Because artificial means of support had been initiated when Mrs. Munoz first arrived at JPS Hospital, the fact whether “all” of her spontaneous brain function had stopped became a critical issue.

BrainDeathHarvardScreen-Shot-2013-02-16-at-11.40.06-AM

“Brain death” was introduced in 1968 by an ad hoc committee of the Harvard Medical School in the Journal of the American Medical Association. It was introduced mainly to facilitate “organ harvesting” and to reallocate resources away from patients whose prognosis was unfavorable. Unfortunately, after three decades of clinical implementation, this standard has proven to be “conceptually flawed,” according to medical ethicist Dan Wikler of the University of Wisconsin at Madison, a member of a 1981 presidential commission that recommended a uniform law defining death. There is no reliable way to determine “irreversible cessation of all spontaneous brain function” unless and until the entire brain has been destroyed; but, in order for this destruction to occur, the respiratory and circulatory functions must stop. Cases have occurred in which the patient met the test for “brain death” because an EEG could not detect electrical activity on his brain’s surface, but the patient clearly had functioning of the mid-brain and brain stem, and maybe even of the cortex. The brain may not be the exclusive central organizing organ of the human person. Doctors have reported over thirty cases of protracted survival of “brain dead” patients, ranging from one week to fourteen years.

No expert witness was called to testify on behalf of Mrs. Munoz. Instead, the assistant district attorney, representing the state and not Mrs. Munoz or Baby Munoz, simply stipulated that the mother was “brain dead.” That stipulation practically decided the case.

Carole Novielli

An advocate for Baby Munoz not only would have challenged the allegation of “brain death” but also would have raised the equally crucial question of whether his client was viable. Viability refers to the gestational age at which a child in utero has a 50% chance to survive outside the womb. Most doctors believe viability is reached around 24 weeks of gestation. However, there is no hard and fast rule. Amillia Taylor, for example, was born in 2006 at 21 weeks, 6 days of gestation (but under 20 weeks from fertilization). At nine inches and 10 ounces, she faced digestive and respiratory issues and a brain hemorrhage. Today, “she runs, she plays, she does things she’s not supposed to do.” But, again, the assistant district attorney essentially threw the case by stipulating that Baby Munoz was not viable.

Another gaping absence was any discussion of medical ethics. As soon as a woman becomes pregnant, there are two patients. The first rule of medical ethics is: Do no harm. Removing the ventilator (which supports but does not substitute for the respiratory system) from Mrs. Munoz obviously caused harm to Baby Munoz. He brain deathdied. The second rule is: Take all reasonable action to give the patient a fair chance to live. All that Baby Munoz needed was 3 to 4 more weeks. This would not have been the first time a brain-dead pregnant woman delivered a baby. In 2012, in Michigan, Christine Bolden delivered twins before her respirator was removed. Dr. Cosmas Vandeven, a specialist in high-risk pregnancies at University of Michigan hospital, said that an important ethical issue in such cases is whether a brain-dead woman would suffer by being kept on a respirator and undergoing a C-section. “Almost every parent would give their life for their child,” Dr. Vandeven opined. “But you need to get truly independent opinions: Are we sure we’re not causing harm to the mom?” Ms. Bolden’s brother said, “I know she wants the babies to be with us. This has brought our family together.”

In contrast, the Texas courtroom stage was filled with provocative commentary on Mrs. Munoz’ allegedly decaying corpse and the “smell of death.” Mr. Munoz’ attorneys pursued a backhanded ad hominem attack against JPS Hospital employees by accusing them of engaging in a scientific experiment with Mrs. Munoz’ body, thus questioning their motives. The defense failed to offer any alternative argument to its insistence that the Texas Health & Safety Code applies to a pregnant woman, whom it already had stipulated was dead, when the relevant subchapter at issue concerns only “qualified patient[s]” who have been diagnosed with a terminal or irreversible condition, Implicitly, it does not apply to a dead patient.

This writer does not question the motive of either the hospital employees or Mr. Munoz. This writer does question whether Mrs. Munoz or Baby Munoz received a fair hearing and whether all available legal and ethical arguments were presented.

In Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth found no meaning or purpose in life after his wife’s death. Let us pray that Mr. Munoz will find meaning and purpose after the death of his wife and child. Let us pray further that our culture, including our judiciary, will strive to meet the Divine standard by which we all will be judged.

_____________________________________________

This blog has written extensively on the Munoz tragedy.

The designation of “brain death” is a controversial one and presents moral and ethical issues, especially when the life of a baby is involved. There are many cases where babies have survived after the mothers have experienced similar situations to that of Marlise Munoz.

Here are some examples:

In 1982 a brain dead woman was put on life support for several days until her unborn child could be delivered.

Michele Odette Poole was delivered in 1985 after her mother was declared brain dead. Her father won a legal battle against the woman’s parents who had requested that life support be disconnected

In March of 1986, doctors successfully delivered a baby at the University of California’s Moffitt Hospital, whose mother was declared legally dead in January and was kept on life support to protect the child.

In November of 1991, Tracy Bucher gave birth to a baby boy after she was pronounced as brain dead. She was kept on life support for six weeks while her unborn child developed inside her.

In November of 1997, Lisa Nottingham was four months when she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage and was declared brain dead in August. She was kept alive by a machine until her baby could safely be delivered the following November.

Susan Anne Catherine Tores was born in September of 2005 after her mother was kept on life support for three months after being pronounced legally dead. Despite heroic efforts the child succumbed to a respiratory illness and died a few days later.

In June of 2006, a brain dead woman kept alive for more than two months gave birth to a baby girl. She was named Christine and her last name was withheld by the media.

Pro-life Group targets the Planned Parenthood Pedophile Protection Racket with outreach to personal injury attorneys.

Posted in child predator, Planned Parenthood and Child Predators with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 23, 2013 by saynsumthn

Worst child sex abuse scandal in American history occurring inside abortion and Planned Parenthood facilities.

Life Dynamics Logo
Life Dynamics, Inc., located in Denton, Texas, has unveiled their national outreach to end the protection of child sexual predators inside American family planning and abortion clinics.

After more than 12-years of research, Life Dynamics, has documented that mandatory reporting statutes which require healthcare workers to report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to the authorities are being ignored inside American abortion, Planned Parenthood and family planning centers.
According to Mark Crutcher, founder of Life Dynamics , “The abortion lobby is engaged in a pedophile protection racket and protecting pedophiles who rape underage girls. These abortion clinics receive money from the federal government. We are literally paying for the rape of our young daughters.”

Life Dynamics studied this issue by analyzing several hundred instances in which older men were convicted of sexual crimes against minor girls. In an alarming number of these cases, there was a point at which the victims were taken for birth control, pregnancy tests, STD treatments and abortions – usually by the perpetrator – with no mandatory reporting made by those who provided the service. In almost every case, the sexual abuse resumed afterward and, many times, it would go on for years.

“You have to remember what’s happening right there,” Crutcher said. “You have an adult in a state talking to what they perceived to be a 13-year-old child who was a victim of sexual abuse by an older man and telling that child to lie about his age in order to conceal the crime. If you’re a parent, especially if a father and you’re not outraged then you don’t have a pulse.”

Child Predator PressReleaseQuote

To test this further, Life Dynamics conducted an undercover investigation in which we called over 800 Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation facilities across the nation. The results of this survey were appalling. Even though many of these clinics openly acknowledged to our caller that this situation was illegal and they were required to report it to the state, the overwhelming majority readily agreed to conceal this illegal activity.

“When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them,” said Crutcher.

To address the problem, Life Dynamics, Inc. has contacted over 53,000 personal injury attorneys to educate them about the pedophile protection racket being covered up inside these clinics.

Child Predator  DVD COVER

The DVD released to the legal community, begins, “ You are going to learn about an area of personal injury litigation that is enormous and growing daily. Make no mistake, what you are about to see could literally revolutionize your practice. It could also put you on the cutting edge of solving one of our nation’s most troubling – but most hidden – social problems.”

MarkCrutcher_2003_sm

Crutcher explains, “Three things we point out in the DVD are that abortion, dissemination of birth control or treatment for STDs are all indications of sexual activity and when they are indicated, on its face that is evidence of child abuse and must be reported.

“Of those three activities, the smallest number is going to be abortions while the largest number is birth control. If you just look at abortion, which is the smallest number of the three, there are nearly 3,500 abortions done in America every single day. The abortion industry and government figures show 25 percent to 40 percent of abortions are done on minor girls. This is potentially of thousands of victims every single day just from abortions.

The response to the DVD has been tremendous so far.

In fact, many of the attorneys Life Dynamics contacted see the value in pursuing litigation against those who violate mandatory reporting laws.
“This is an outrage and what is going on here is absolute and utter scandal. If you simply look at the numbers on these things this is the largest criminal conspiracy in American history, ” Crutcher stated, “The phones are ringing off the hook.”

A Recent news article on the project describes the effort this way: “In what has been called the worst child sex abuse scandal in American history, the abortion industry could soon find itself beleaguered by multiple lawsuits from trial lawyers representing hundreds of thousands of victims of statutory rape.”

Another media report reads, “Life Dynamics is alerting attorneys that Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers might be ripe for civil lawsuits.”
