Planned Parenthood Forced to Settle Suit, Failed to Report Child Rape | LifeNews.com.
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.
Since the time Pharmer was first informed of current Indiana legislation to regulate the use of abortion drugs, there have been significant changes to the bill.
Of special concern is that no longer a requirement to report adverse events associated with abortion drug use.
Existing forms and services can be used for such reporting with respect to drugs and medical devices, for example:
Adverse events associated with or related to childbirth are reportable as such to include the whole period of pregnancy, childbirth and the year after delivery, at the recommendation of the ACOG.
The non reporting of abortion related adverse events and deaths, combined with the more readily reported pregnancy related or associated deaths has led to false statistics comparing the relative risk of childbirth and abortion.
Senate Bill 72 is now structured in such a way as to facilitate a means to convince women that abortion is safer than childbirth. The lack of requirement for reporting abortion drug adverse events serves to worsen the current skewing and misrepresentation of facts, which denies patients the opportunity of giving informed consent.
Useful parts of the bill worth noting: The definition of abortion inducing drug includes “off-label use of drugs known to have abortion inducing properties if the drug is prescribed with the intent of causing an abortion”. (Ch.3 sec.1a)
The bill also requires that the abortionist “follows the drug label protocol for the abortion producing drug. (Ch3. sec 3a-2)
Expect a firestorm from planned parenthood which utilizes mifepristone, RU-486, in an off label manner by using less of the drug (a single 200mg tab) than recommended on the label, (three 200mg tablets) and by using it up to, or at 63 days gestation instead of 49 days.
According to the Mifeprex label, U.S., three x 200mg tabs are to be administered in a single dose, and the patient returns to the clinic in 2 days to take 2 tabs (400mcg) of misoprostil, to expel the human embryo or fetus. Planned Parenthood of Indiana is sending the patients home with four tablets (800mcg) according to their own info.
From Drs Gary and Harrison at Medscape: “The US clinical trial demonstrated a failure rate of 8% at 49 days or less from the last menstrual period (LMP), increasing to 17% at 50-56 days from the LMP, and further increasing to a 23% failure at 57-63 days from the LMP, as established by sonographic criteria………One serious concern raised by this review of AERs is the suggested fetal malformation rate of at least 23% following mifepristone failures that resulted in continuation of a live pregnancy.”
