Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains, which received $2,302,026 in government grants in 2011-2012, is facing a legal challenge from the mother of an underage girl who was taken to the facility by her abuser to have an abortion.
The lawsuit, Cary Smith v. Rocky Mountain Planned Parenthood, was filed on June 20th and claims that the then 13 year-old girl was taken to the clinic by her abuser, who was also her step-father, to have an abortion on May 3, 2012. Not only did the staff not ask the girl if she was being sexually abused by an adult, they also neglected to contact law enforcement or child services to report suspected abuse of the girl.
When the victim finally told her mother about the sexual abuse and abortion on July 18, 2012, she was taken a local hospital for an examination and to report the abuse. The mother also obtained her daughter’s abortion record from Planned Parenthood.
