Ruling from AG puts further pressure on abortion providers – despite privacy concerns, physicians are required to make a report to authorities if an underage female patient is suspected of being impregnated by an adult male. “There is a reporting requirement when the female minor is under 16 years of age and the man impregnating her is 21 years of age or older; the female minor is under the age of 14 years or
14 or 15
years old, and the man impregnating her is at least 10 years older than
her,” said the 1Nov ruling, issued by Deputy AG Paul Ament. However, he said it did not appear physicians were required to report suspected sexual intercourse/pregnancy “when the [female minor] is 16 or 17 years old,” according to the ruling. The interpretation of state child-abuse statutes and reporting requirements was requested by the CA Medical Board. The request came on the heels of a report published by Life Dynamics, Inc., based on an investigation that found abortion providers Planned Parenthood & the National Abortion Fdn “knowingly conceal” the crimes of sexual abuse of minors, “while aiding and abetting the sexual predators who commit them.” The workers routinely disregarded their reporting reqt, and many times offered to help conceal the fact that the act itself was a crime while offering to provide abortion services. There is also a lawsuit filed by the US Justice Fdn against Planned Parenthood centers in Los Angeles/ San Diego on behalf of a CA woman who alleges that as an employee of the organization she was required to offer medical services – including assisting physicians with abortions – that she was not licensed to perform.
