Pro-Life Group Calls Out Indiana Doctors Covering Up Sex Abuse
Nine abortion doctors in Indiana are facing a slew of complaints after they didn’t report when girls younger than 16-years-old had abortions.
Indiana law requires abortion clinics to report all abortions that doctors perform on girls younger than 16 so that authorities can investigate the cases and determine if the girls have been victims of rape or incest. Abortion clinics must report the abortions both to the Indiana State Department of Health and the Indiana Department of Child Services (DCS) within three days of the abortion.
The nine abortion doctors are now facing 48 official complaints alleging the doctors did not follow Indiana’s law by failing to the report the abortions, according to an Indiana Right To Life press release.
Eleven of the 48 complaints were filed against Dr. Jeffrey Glazer who is set to serve as the medical director of a new Whole Women’s Health in South Bend if it opens. The complaints include allegations that Glazer did not notify the DCS of an abortion on a 12-year-old girl. Indiana denied the clinic’s license application for “poor character and integrity of that company,” the press release stated.
“We think it is outrageous that the abortion facilities in our state would put young girls at risk, sending them back to unknown kinds of abuse,” said Tippecanoe County Right to Life President Kevin Niebrugge.
“There’s a long history of targeting physicians who provide abortions in many communities, especially in Indiana,” Whole Women’s Health President Amy Hagstrom Miller said, noting that she thinks the allegations are simply an “intimidation tactic.”
Indiana Right To Life held five news conferences to expose the doctors’ indiscretions in South Bend, Bloomington, Lafayette, Indianapolis and Merrillville on Wednesday.
“Failure of these abortion doctors to protect young girls from sexual abuse is evidence that the abortion industry cares more about profits than they do about their patients,” Right to Life of Indianapolis President Marc Tuttle said.
