An Ohio judge has ruled that a Planned Parenthood clinic violated state law in a case involving a 14 year old girl impregnated by her 22 year old soccer coach. Ohio state law requires a doctor to meet with a woman seeking an abortion at least 24 hours before actually performing the procedure to discuss abortion alternatives. Not only did Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio break this requirement, it also failed to report the occurrence of statutory rape as required by law.
The girl’s attorney, Brian Hurly, summarized the victory, and the larger issue, well by saying, “The health and safety of young girls is more important than Planned Parenthood’s desire to perform an abortion.”
