Attack on Pro-Life Activist at an Abortion Facility Results in Capture of Child Rapist

By Cheryl Sullenger

Montgomery, AL — April 14, 2017, seemed at first like just another routine day at the abortion clinic for a number of pro-life activists who spent the morning offering help to women and their companions as they reported to Reproductive Health Services, an abortion facility located on Perry Street in Montgomery, Alabama.

As one of the activists, Daniel French, approached one couple, the man became angry and threw his coffee on French and spit in his face.

The police were called to the scene where they arrested Logan Craft inside the abortion facility then marched him out to an awaiting police car. He was charged with Aggravated Assault and Harassment.

However, at least one the pro-life witnesses that day expressed further concern. Craft, a 24-year old Montgomery resident, had accompanied a girl that appeared to be underage.

Just three days later on April 17, Craft was arrested again and charged on numerous charges related to sexual abuse of two minor girls less than 12 years old, according to a local news report.

One of Craft’s young victims had suffered abuse from April 10 through April 14 – the very day Craft took an apparently underaged young lady to the Reproductive Health Services abortion facility. Whether the abuse victim was the same person Craft was seen with at the abortion business remains unconfirmed at this time.

The Montgomery Advertiser elaborated on Craft’s sexual abuse charges in a story posted on April 18, 2017:

Craft is accused of sexually assaulting one child between April 10 and April 14. Another child was sexually assaulted between April 3 and April 7 in the area of Mobile Highway.

In addition, two separate cases were reported where women were sexually assaulted in January. Both cases occurred during consensual sex, however when the women pleaded to stop, Craft allegedly used physical force to continue the abuse.

He is accused of strangling one victim until she was unconscious and continued to sexually abuse her because he admitted it “heightened his sexual pleasure” according to court documents.

Craft is being held on a bond on $150,000 at the Montgomery Detention facility. He remains in custody as of this writing, and will hopefully continue his incarceration for many years to come.

It is possible that if Craft had not attacked French on April 14, he might still be on the loose.

“Many abortion facilities have been caught failing to report child sex abuse. It is a huge problem across America. Abortion facilities often have an unspoken ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy when it comes to underage abortion patients. This actually protects the rapists at the expense of the young victims,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Would Reproductive Health Services have reported Craft if police had not been called for another matter? It’s hard to say, but I think it is doubtful.”

Newman has good reason for his doubts.

Operation Rescue’s office is located in a former abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, where twelve-year old girl was once brought for an abortion by her rapist and step-father, Robert Estrada. Because the abortion business did not report the abuse, Estrada continued to rape the girl and her younger sister for four more years, resulting in additional pregnancies. He was finally caught and convicted only after one of the victims sought help at a pro-life pregnancy care center, who reported Estrada to the police.

The Estrada case is only one of many examples of abortion facilities acting as “rapist protection rackets” – a fate that may have befallen Craft’s young victims had he not attacked Daniel French.

“We are usually not thankful when a pro-life activist is attacked outside an abortion facility, but this time, we are grateful,” said Newman. “Because police were called to the abortion clinic, a rapist is behind bars and little girls in Montgomery are now a bit safer.”

SHOCKING ABUSE! Planned Parenthood Faces Lawsuit in Child Rape and Abortion Scandal

By Deborah Myers

PP-DenverDenver, Colorado — 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.

The inaction of Planned Parenthood staff, as well as their direct violation of Colorado statutes, enabled a sexual predator to continue his felonious abuse of a child for months afterwards.

Cary maintains that defendants’ negligence “created an unreasonable risk of physical harm” to her daughter. Cary is now suing Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for five claims for relief, including negligence, negligent affliction of emotional distress, and extreme and outrageous conduct.

“We applaud Cary Smith for her brave stand to hold Planned Parenthood accountable for their crime against her daughter,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This lawsuit is another indication that Planned Parenthood is dedicated to one thing—selling abortion; and they do not care how many young girls are raped or abused in the process.”

Indiana Abortionist Headed to Trial for Failing to Report Abuse

By Cheryl Sullenger

Gary, IN — Indiana abortionist Ulrich Klopfer, 73, was ordered to stand trial early next year for failing to report suspected child abuse after giving a 13-year old girl an abortion in 2012.

Klopfer, who did not appear in the Lake County court for yesterday’s hearing, faces a possible penalty of up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted of the Class B misdemeanor.

A trial date was set for January 26, 2015.

Klopfer’s alleged failure to report the abuse was uncovered when Indiana Right to Life obtained thousands of Terminated Pregnancy Reports and discovered 1,590 errors and omissions on the reports related to abortions in Lake and Allen Counties where Klopfer worked at two abortion clinics. To date, over 1,200 complaints have been filed against him.

Operation Rescue consulted with Indiana Right to Life on this case.

Negative publicity over Klopfer’s failure to report child sex abuse led a physician that provided hospital care for Klopfer’s botched abortion victims to quit the agreement, forcing Klopfer to close his Ft. Wayne abortion clinic in January, 2014.

In March, police raided Klopfer’s Women’s Pavilion abortion clinic in South Bend, Indiana, seizing documents and other property. He remains under criminal investigation in St. Joseph County where inspection reports revealed that numerous health and safety code deficiencies existed at his South Bend facility.

In addition, Klopfer’s medical license is under review and could face possible license revocation.

“The non-reporting of child sex crimes is rampant throughout the abortion industry and poses a very serious threat to children who are the victims of these heinous crimes. It is unthinkable that Klopfer may have returned a child into the hands of her abuser, but this kind of thing happens at abortion clinics all too often,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “We look forward to Klopfer’s day in court and pray that he is made an example for other abortionists who think mandatory reporting laws do not apply to them.”

Abortion Politics: Kline’s Ethics Case Goes Before Kansas Supreme Court

By Cheryl Sullenger

Topeka, KS – On Thursday, the final drama in a long and complex chapter of abortion history will play out in a Kansas courtroom. On the line is the law license – and career – of a former Attorney General and District Attorney who is accused of ethics violations for the way he handled investigations of illegal late-term abortions and the concealment of child rape by abortion clinics.

Phill Kline is accused of mishandling criminal abortion investigations between 2003 and 2008. The ethics complaint against him was filed by Dan Monet, an attorney that represented an abortionist who was the object of Kline’s investigations. The complaint was fueled by political manipulation and a public campaign to disgrace Kline launched by the abortion-defending local media, which often twisted or misreported facts during Kline’s ordeal that has now spanned nine long years.

Kline’s investigation was marred by repeated obstructive efforts on the part of former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius’ administration, whose goal was to discredit Kline, conceal incriminating evidence of crimes committed by the abortion clinics, and destroy his investigations.

Even though the Sebelius era has ended in Kansas with her appointment as Secretary of Health and Services and most of her hand-selected cronies have been purged from positions of power, there remains two institutions still firmly in the grasp of the political climate created by Sebelius that worked to protect abortion clinics from accountability under the law at any cost. Those two institutions are the Disciplinary Administrator’s office and the Kansas Supreme Court.

On Thursday, Disciplinary Administrator Stan Hazlett is set to ask for Kline’s law license to be permanently revoked. In doing so, he will be ignoring the recommendation of a 3-person disciplinary panel that Kline’s license be suspended indefinitely. This would allow Kline to petition to restore his law license in three years.

Kline’s ethics case is an historic one that resembles more the plot line from the novel Moby Dick than an actual legal proceeding, where Hazlett, mimicking the persona of Captain Ahab, seems personally as hell-bent on destroying Kline as Ahab was on killing the whale.

In fact, Kline’s case never would have progressed beyond the initial investigative stage, had it not been for Hazlett’s crusade.

Two investigators working for the Disciplinary Administrator’s office, which is prosecuting Kline, issued a report clearing Kline of wrong-doing and recommending that the case not proceed. This report was improperly suppressed by Disciplinary Administrator Stan Hazlett for three years and only surfaced as Kline was about to face an ethics hearing last year.

“If ever there was a politically motivated case, this is it,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation. “The entire case against Kline is evidence of deep political corruption that has protected the abortion criminals while brutally punishing those who attempt to hold the criminals accountable under the law.”

Kline’s original disciplinary hearing was the longest in Kansas history. Kline was personally grilled for an unprecedented 28 hours under oath. In the end, the panel recommended sanctions.

However, of the three Disciplinary Board members serving as judges over the case, two gave campaign contributions to Kline’s political opponents during what court witnesses described as contentious political races that focused on the abortion issue and were filled with personal animosity. Those members should have been recused from sitting in judgment of someone they had openly politically opposed.

Despite the findings of a politically bigoted Disciplinary Board, time has proven what Kline’s investigations had uncovered. Kansas abortion clinics were breaking the law.

  • Abortion clinic concealment of child rape. Kline’s allegations were confirmed with the 2006 rape conviction of Robert Estrada who began to sexually abuse his two step daughters when they were just 11 and 12 years old. He impregnated the 12-year old then took her to a Wichita abortion clinic where she received an abortion without a suspected abuse report being filed. Estrada continued to rape both girls for four more years, resulting in a total of four pregnancies. Kline assisted in Estrada’s prosecution by forwarding the abortion records obtained during his investigations to Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston, who falsely told reporters Kline had nothing to do with the case. In an apparent cover-up, the abortionist was never held accountable for his actions. Kline’s investigations into abortion clinics that hid child sex abuse was thwarted and he was never able ascertain if over 160 minor girls aged 14 and younger who had been subjected to abortions were safe or still in danger from continued abuse thanks to the Sebelius Administrations’ obstructive legal interference.
  • Illegal late-term abortions in Wichita. During his final days as Attorney General, Kline filed a 30-count criminal case against George Tiller for conducting illegal late-term abortions. Within 24 hours, District Attorney Foulston persuaded a judge to dismiss the charges on shady jurisdictional arguments. Later, Tiller was charged by the Kansas Board of Healing Arts on 11 counts of illegal late-term abortions. Earlier this year, the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts revoked the medical license of Ann Kristin Neuhaus, the abortionist who provided Tiller with the second referral then required by Kansas law for each post-viability abortion. The KSBHA found that she improperly concluded that abortions were necessary based on her phony and negligently conducted mental health screenings. Testimony revealed that abortions done based on Neuhaus’ referrals were illegal. Kline’s allegations had been on the mark.
  • Illegal late-term abortions at Planned Parenthood and manufacturing evidence. As Johnson County District Attorney Kline filed 107 criminal charges against them for illegal abortions and manufacturing evidence to cover their crimes. The case was supported by probable cause findings from three Kansas judges. Kline’s successor was apolitical rival with a grudge against Kline for once firing him. The case under Howe was marred by scandal. Allegations of evidence destruction eventually paved the way for the dismissal of all of Kline’s charges. However, Judge Richard Anderson released documents in response to an open records request made by Operation Rescue that proved that Howe lied to a judge to get the charges against Planned Parenthood dropped. This validated Kline’s charges and proved that the case he pursued was a solid one with incriminating evidence that his political enemies worked to suppress at any cost.
  • As for Thursday’s hearing, already an unprecedented five Supreme Court Justices have recused themselves and will not sit in judgment of Kline because of their biased history of involvement against his abortion investigations. They have been replaced by others who will hear one final hour of arguments on Thursday, which will decide Kline’s professional fate.

    Operation Rescue has learned that friend-of-the-court briefs filed by two attorney groups on behalf of Kline, including Life Legal Defense Foundation, were flatly rejected by the Supreme Court in a move that raised further questions about the Court’s ability to judge the ethics case fairly.

    The case has taken an emotional and financial toll on Kline. The state has been reticent to fulfill its obligation and pay for all of Kline’s legal costs; therefore, Kline has had to personally pay thousands of dollars to fund his defense. He was forced to leave Kansas in order to support his family. His reputation has been shredded by a negative media campaign of personal destruction.

    “We are asking folks to do two things. First, pray for Phill Kline and his family as they face once again a biased political prosecution and a hostile press. Secondly, we are asking for anyone who can to help with a generous donation to Kline’s legal defense fund,” said Newman. “We must support Phill so that the truth can be told about the political corruption that has protected abortion clinics from accountability. Phill has suffered unjustly for telling that truth. We pray that with his vindication the corruption will finally be exposed and rooted out once and for all.”
