Life Dynamics Incorporated, Written by: Mark Crutcher and Renee Hobbs Research by: This report will show that their refusal to comply with these laws is having profound, real-world consequences for the victims of child sexual abuse.
The cases contained here are instances of criminal prosecutions against men who have been caught having illegal sexual relationships with minor girls. In each case, the victims were taken for abortions with no report being made by the abortion providers. It is important to understand several things about these cases. First, they are only a representative sample of the total number of criminal prosecutions we found.
However, even if we had the resources to locate, verify, and publish all such cases, that would still be only the tip of the iceberg. In reality, only a tiny fraction of these instances ever culminate in legal action and, therefore, the vast majority will never be known to anyone other than the victims, the perpetrators and the abortion clinics. Second, among experts who study this issue, it is almost universally accepted that sexual predators who target children almost never stop on their own.
Instead, they continue until they are stopped by someone else. But once the situation was eventually revealed to the authorities, the perpetrator was arrested and the abuse ended immediately.
This illustrates why compliance with these laws is such an indispensable tool for dealing with our national epidemic of older males sexually exploiting underage girls. Third, this report does not address the growing problem of abortion-causing drugs being sold over-the-counter. Obviously, from a sexual abuse standpoint, it is a legitimate concern that underage girls can buy these items without anyone knowing; but the far bigger problem is that sexual predators can buy them without anyone knowing.
Fourth, it is self-evident that when a minor girl seeks an abortion, she represents a textbook example of why mandatory reporting laws were created in the first place. Despite this, we have consistently found that the law enforcement community is functionally indifferent to the problem of abortion clinics not complying with mandatory reporting statutes even in the face of irrefutable evidence that violations are occurring.
In some cases, the abortion clinics flaunting of these laws even resulted in sexual assaults being committed against other underage girls. All names inside quotation marks are pseudonyms. It is clear no report was filed by the clinic since Alfaro continued to sexually assault Caitlin for approximately a year after the abortion.
In , she revealed the situation to her family and they notified the authorities. Alfaro was convicted for predatory criminal sexual assault and given 20 years in prison. He started having intercourse with her when she was 12 and, within two years, he was raping her four or five times a week. Court documents show that, at 16, Hillary became pregnant by Bailey and was taken for an abortion.
Given that Bailey continued to assault Hillary for another year, it is evident the abortion clinic did not file a report. After authorities were made aware of the situation, Bailey was arrested, convicted and given 20 years in prison.
She was taken for an abortion in August and it is evident the clinic did not file a report since she was pregnant again in February of She was taken for a second abortion in March and, as before, it is obvious no report was made since the sexual abuse continued for more than another year.
Court documents show that Bergara gave the girl various drugs including methamphetamine, alcohol, marijuana, PCP, ecstasy and psychedelic mushrooms. When the relationship turned violent, Rebecca became frightened and went to the police. In , Bergara was sentenced to more than years in prison for charges related to this illicit sexual relationship.
At 14, Cara became pregnant and Bishop took her to a Chicago abortion clinic where he ordered her to sign-in using a fictitious name. It is evident that no report was filed by the clinic since the assaults on Cara resumed two weeks after the abortion and continued until December when she went to the police. It was later discovered that, not only did the abortion clinic staff fail to report the situation, they also supplied the victim with birth control pills.
In , an Illinois court gave Bishop 30 years in prison for criminal sexual assault. The abuse continued almost nightly until, at the age of 18, she revealed it to a coach at her school and the authorities were then notified. In the legal proceedings that followed, it was revealed that Brandy had become pregnant at 16 and Blanks forced her to undergo an abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Mount Auburn.
Despite that, it is evident no report was filed by the clinic since Blanks continued to rape Brandy for another year-and-a-half after the abortion. In , Blanks was convicted of sexual battery and sentenced to five years in the state penitentiary. He eventually impregnated both children and paid for them to have abortions. It is apparent no report was ever made by the abortion clinic since Brammer continued to have sex with Opal until she was Documents show that he had sex with the two girls hundreds of times and even forced them to engage in sexual acts with each other.
After the authorities were made aware of the situation, Brammer was arrested and in he was convicted and sentenced to 36 years and four months in the state penitentiary. From this, it is obvious the clinic did not make a report. Lisa eventually went to the police and, in , Carter was given 36 to 45 years in prison for first-degree rape, indecent liberties with a child and statutory rape. Eventually, the abuse grew to the point that he was having intercourse with her three to four times a week.
Shortly after turning 16, Maddie was pregnant and Castillo forced her to have an abortion. Six months later, he forced her to have a second abortion and a year later he forced her to have a third. Since Castillo continued to rape Maddie after each abortion, it is clear no report was filed by any of the abortion clinics involved. The sexual assaults did not end until September of when Maddie told her mother and aunt about them and they notified the authorities.
A California court convicted Castillo on 17 counts of lewd acts with a child and gave him 31 years and eight months in prison. Investigators also discovered that, in March of that year, Cheshier had taken her to the Hope Clinic for Women in Granite City, Illinois, where he forced her to have an abortion.
Given that Cheshier resumed raping Allie after the abortion, and continued to do so for another eight months, it is evident the clinic staff did not file a report.
Clark eventually confessed and was given 10 years in prison. The abortion was botched and Celena almost died from internal hemorrhaging. Given that the assaults on Celena resumed afterward, it is clear the clinic did not file a report. She refused to submit to the abortion at that time but relented three days later and was taken to the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland.
As before, it is evident no report was made by either Planned Parenthood or Preterm since the assaults on Celena resumed after the second abortion. In June of the following year, police were made aware of the situation and Coles was arrested. It is apparent no report was made by the clinic since Creel continued to sexually abuse Amy for several more years. When the situation was finally exposed to the authorities, he did not contest the charges against him and surrendered his teaching certificate.
At the time, she was more than weeks pregnant. It is clear that neither Planned Parenthood nor the hospital filed a report since Cross continued to assault Angela for another seven months. At that time, her mother found papers related to the abortion and contacted police. Cross was later found guilty of committing a lewd act on Angela and inflicting great bodily harm on her.
He was given six years in prison on one charge and years-to-life on the other. After hiring an year-old girl to sweep the shop, he began having a sexual relationship with her. A school counselor became aware of the situation and alerted authorities. As the case was being investigated, police discovered that Dixon had also engaged in a sexual relationship with two other children starting when they were 12 and 13 years old.
These sisters told detectives that they had a total of seven abortions and that, at one point, Dixon took both of them for abortions on the same day. One sister stated that she once had two abortions in five months. Because of the time span involved, it is apparent no reports were ever filed by the abortion clinics. Dixon was arrested but later acquitted after the three victims recanted their stories.
However, Miami detective Michael Osborn was able to acquire records from South Shore Hospital documenting four abortions between the two sisters at this one facility. At 16, Penny was pregnant with twins when Dunn paid for her to have an abortion. It is clear the abortion clinic failed to make a report since the sexual abuse resumed after the abortion and continued for another two years.
After Penny eventually came forward, Dunn was convicted on 13 sexual offenses and given years in prison. Ellis signed the consent forms and paid for the abortion. It is evident no report was made since his assaults on Addie did not come to light until the following August when her mom learned of them and contacted authorities. After being arrested, Ellis pled guilty to four counts of sexual battery and was given two years in prison plus an additional 12 years on probation.
Army in Vietnam where he purchased a five-year-old girl from a local woman. He traveled extensively with her and they eventually settled in Costa Mesa, California.
He kept her silent about the abuse by warning her that, if he were to be arrested, she would end up with a foster family who would rape her or force her into prostitution. He also told her that she was too old to be adopted and he was the only one who could protect her. While free on bond awaiting sentencing, he fled with Lauren to Florida using the name, Stephen Arthur Seagoe. Court documents show that Lauren became pregnant for the first time at 13 and England made her place that baby for adoption.
They also show he impregnated her another eight or nine times over the next six years and forced her to have abortions in each case. It is obvious none of the abortion clinics involved filed a report since England continued to sexually assault Lauren until she was At that point, police were made aware of the situation and England was arrested. After completing a prison term in Florida, he was returned to California where he received four life sentences.
He was also convicted on federal charges and given a year-sentence. It is obvious that no one at the facility filed a report since the sexual contact continued for several years afterward. When authorities were made aware of the situation, Estrada was charged with nine felony counts of rape and indecent liberties with a child and sentenced to 90 years in prison. His wife, Patricia Estrada, was given 14 months in jail for knowing about the abuse and not reporting it.
Estrada and Patricia L. He began having sex with her in when she was 11 years old; in he discovered she was pregnant. It is clear the abortion clinic never filed a report since Franklin resumed raping Alexandra afterward. Court records show that Franklin impregnated Alexandra again the following year and that she was taken for a second abortion. Both children later testified they were raped hundreds of times and were routinely beaten on their breasts and upper thighs during these incidents.
