After seven long years, Denice Fairbanks has won a settlement from Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio. Her suit against the abortion provider included charges of covering up rape, and sexual abuse of a minor, and failure to report these things to authorities as the law demands. Ms. Fairbanks had been abused by her father from age 13, was impregnated, and was taken to Planned Parenthood for an abortion at age 16. Though she told the staff that she was being forced to have sex, she was offered no assistance and the abuse was not reported to authorities. She was returned to her father, and the abuse continued until a H.S. instructor was told, and reported the crimes.
Life Legal Defense Foundation and attorney Brian Hurley represented Fairbanks in the suit against Planned Parenthood. As expected, the size of the award is not announced, but Pharmer hopes it is H U G E.
