Child abuse victim settles case against Planned Parenthood

After a seven-year battle, a victim of child abuse in Ohio has settled a lawsuit against Planned Parenthood.

The lawsuit, supported by Life Legal Defense Foundation, lodged multiple charges against the Planned Parenthood facility, including failure to report incestuous statutory rape and sexual abuse of a minor. Dana Cody heads the Foundation.

Cody, Dana (LLDF)"Denise Fairbanks was impregnated by her father when she was a minor -- that's a polite way of putting it -- and she sued Planned Parenthood," Cody explains.

The incest began when Fairbanks was 13. While in the clinic going through the process at age 16, she told staff that the relation was forced, but it was not reported to authorities as required by Ohio law.

After the abortion, she was sent home and to the same environment. A year later, Fairbanks told her basketball coach, who reported it to police, and the father was jailed.

Other Planned Parenthoods were caught by Live Action undercover videos advising minors on how to obtain abortions without parental consent.

"And all we get from the local abortion supporters [are protestations like] Christian jihadist, women need to have abortions," laments the pro-life attorney. "Women don't need abortions -- women need to have the support of a culture to help them when they decide to have a child; and they don't need people to be screaming in their face [that] abortion is the answer, because it's not."

Cody argues that had Planned Parenthood simply complied with the law initially, the young Fairbanks would not have been sent back home for more abuse - and further tragedy could have been prevented.
