Peggy Mayfield remarks on protecting minors

This is the text of the remarks that State Representative Peggy Mayfield gave at the Indiana Right to Life press conferences on June 20. I am grateful for the opportunity to address you today. As House sponsor of SEA 404, the bill that provided for the reporting requirements at issue, I applaud the vigilant efforts of Indiana Right to Life to hold Planned Parenthood accountable for protecting our young girls-- girls under 16—girls not yet old enough to get a driver’s license--who have had abortions performed on them. A girl this young, in these cases as young as 12, must either obtain her parent’s consent or the court’s permission before having an abortion. In addition, the provider must notify the Dept. of Child Services within 3 days of the procedure. The reason for this is clear: the age of consent in Indiana is 16. Any pregnant girls younger than that could be the victim of a variety of sex crimes or trafficking. Doctors play an integral part in identifying and reducing

Erin Houchin remarks on protecting minors

This is the text of the remarks that State Senator Erin Houchin gave at the Indiana Right to Life press conferences on June 20. Good morning. I'm State Senator Erin Houchin from Senate District 47, and I was proud to author Senate Enrolled Act 404 in 2017, which sought to protect young girls, under the age of 16, who seek to obtain an abortion. In Indiana, the age of consent is 16 years of age. When minors under this age seek to terminate pregnancies, it is critical for these cases to be reported to the Department of Child Services and the Indiana State Department of Health to determine if illegal action took place, or if these girls were victimized or are in danger in any way. At these young and vulnerable ages, sometimes as young as 12 years old, it is likely that these pregnancies did not occur as a result of legal, consensual activity. It is the duty of the DCS and law enforcement to examine the circumstances behind each case to determine what, if any, action should be take

Planned Parenthood enables sexual predators

This was written by CCFL board member Scott Tibbs. Three years ago, I wrote a letter to the editor asking if the Bloomington City Council was using tax dollars to help cover up the felony sexual abuse of underage girls. Well shazam! It looks like that is exactly what has been going on at Planned Parenthood, which operates an abortion mill on South College Avenue. Indiana Right to Life and county affiliates have been reviewing terminated pregnancy reports, and there is no indication that 48 abortions done on teenage girls below the age of consent were reported to law enforcement or to Child Protective Services as required by Indiana law. One of the sexual abuse victims was twelve years old. This is why the Bloomington City Council and the Monroe County Council need to immediately stop giving taxpayer money to Planned Parenthood. Bloomington’s Planned Parenthood was exposed in a 2008 sting operation as being willing to cover up the rape of a 13 year old girl. Now we know they are
