The following comes from a July 11 Operation Rescue story.
Planned Parenthood faces a legal challenge in Colorado after Cary Smith, of Federal Heights, discovered that clinic staff failed to inquire or report about suspected sexual abuse of her thirteen-year-old daughter after giving her an abortion.
It was any mother’s nightmare.
According to the lawsuit filed on June 20, 2014, Cary’s daughter, R.Z., was only about six when it all began. Her new step-father, Timothy David Smith, began to do things that no one had ever done before. At this age, she was too young to realize that her step-father’s inordinate attention was actually a crime—a felony: sexual abuse of a minor.
Little R.Z. turned seven, then eight. The years went by, and the abuse continued. But Cary Smith never knew.
During R.Z.’s growing up years, the abuse became both verbal and physical as well. Her step-father even threatened to take her life. Timothy’s verbal and physical abuse extended to Cary, even when R.Z. was present.
Then it happened.
R.Z. got pregnant. Timothy told her to take a test and the results were positive.
On May 3, 2012, Timothy transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an abortion appointment that Timothy had forced R.Z. to schedule.
Planned Parenthood staff met R.Z. and her step-father and gave them the necessary paperwork. R.Z. filled out her date of birth and signed a few forms, but Timothy completed all the rest. R.Z. never read these documents.
Throughout the visit, four staff members spoke with and observed R.Z. and her step-father. All of them had opportunity to see that R.Z.’s birth date indicated she was only thirteen—well below the age of consent. Yet, none of them asked R.Z. about their relationship. None of them asked why their last names were different. None of them asked about potential sex abuse. And none of them reported anything to the state.
After the abortion, R.Z. walked back out to the parking lot, got into her step-father’s car, and went back home. And the abuse continued.
Two months later, on July 18, 2012, Timothy was outside of the home, and Cary was left alone with her daughter. Young R.Z. took the opportunity to tell her mom the news—her own step-father was sexually abusing her, and had been doing so for years.
Cary spun into action. She took the thirteen-year-old to the hospital and immediately reported the abuse. She contacted Planned Parenthood for her daughter’s medical records, and discovered that her husband had arranged for a secret abortion for R.Z. earlier that year.
Timothy Smith was arrested and charged with multiple counts of felony sex abuse, and pled guilty to two counts in late 2012.
But Cary was not content. Although R.Z.’s abuser was now behind bars, the system hadn’t worked.
The first medical professionals who had seen R.Z.—the four Planned Parenthood staff members—must have known that her daughter was a potential victim of sexual abuse. These were professionals who had the information to do something. They had opportunity to ask R.Z. before her mother even knew.
And they had the responsibility to act—to report suspected child sex abuse—under Colorado law.
But these professionals did nothing. Worse, they performed a dangerous, legally-restricted procedure on a minor child, without informing her mother, and turned R.Z. back over to her rapist following the abortion….

I hope the mother and daughter get enough money to support them mentally and physically from PP.
Parents need to talk to their children about telling them of abuse, in a way that they will get the truth, not false statements.
This is terrible, I hope this mother obtains justice.
Can it get any worse for this “unprotected” child? A mother who allows a man to physically and verbally abuse her daughter and herself; an evil man who hurts a child so completely; a corrupt organization (PP) who does nothing to protect an innocent child–an organization that is protected by our government and the murder of another unborn child. No, it’s worse…..there are thousands of documented and undocumented cases of young girls being hurt and the adults involved, who “walk”—PP continues to cover-up vile illegal acts and will continue to do so until every decent tax payer says “NO MORE”! Dear Lord, heal, protect and deliver all innocent children from evildoers who prowl around those who cannot defend themselves AND help us to close down PP.
To close down PP you would also have to close down the Demoncrats and Republicrats all together. I can be done, but will it?
May God have mercy on an amoral Amerika and His Church!
Viva Cristo Rey!

This problem actually started with the MOTHER, failing to have the GUTS to PROTECT HER LITTLE GIRL!!” It ended up at Planned Parenthood, with the evil abortion– but what if the little girl had been abused and killed, before then?? WHY DIDN’T THE MOTHER CARE?? WHY?? She is a CHILD-ABUSE and NEGLECT CRIMINAL- MOTHER!! Many long years ago, she should have CALLED POLICE, and TAKEN HER CHILD TO SAFETY!! NEVER AGAIN TO SEE THAT EVIL MONSTER SHE GOT MARRIED TO!! QUICK DIVORCE, AND PUT HIM BEHIND BARS!!
A single mom of a young daughter should be savvy enough to be especially vigilant when when invites a new guy into her life — as “wonderful” as he may be.
What do you expect from an organization that is devoted to Satan?
Calling the folks at Planned Parenthood “professionals” is like calling the town dogcatchers “veterinarians.” There is no semblance of professionalism exhibited by the callous folks at Planned Parenthood. Do they care about women? It is obvious that they care about cash over the minor entrusted to their “care.” Shut them down now.
