Life Links 4/28/11

Free of Kathleen Sebelius' veto, the Kansas legislature is passing prolife bill after prolife bill. This one will require that abortion clinics be inspected at least twice a year, one of the visits being unannounced. It also includes RU-486 abortion regulations.

A former band teacher was arrested after the student he had an affair with published the story of their affair in her college newspaper. The teacher also took her to get an abortion.
"The sound of the vacuum still rings in my ears almost three years later," she wrote. "He had taken me to Greensboro because he was scared of someone from school or anyone catching us together at the abortion clinic — didn't want anyone 'getting the wrong idea.'"

The teacher, Terry Lamar Jones, now 28, turned himself in on Monday and was charged with 64 felony counts of sex with a student, each one punishable by 15 months in prison. He was jailed on $500,000 bail.

It looks like a Planned Parenthood in Ohio paid up to settle a lawsuit in which they failed to notify parents about a 14-year-old's abortion. They allowed the girl's 21-year-old soccer coach (who was the father of the child) to give consent.
Parties say they have resolved a lawsuit accusing a Planned Parenthood clinic in Ohio of failing to get legally required consents before performing an abortion on a 14-year-old girl impregnated by her youth soccer coach boyfriend.

Chief Executive Becki Brenner of the southwest Ohio region Planned Parenthood and Steven Aden, a lawyer for the family, said Wednesday the case has been "resolved and dismissed." Aden says it was dismissed April 15 in Hamilton County, but that he cannot characterize the settlement because of a confidentiality order.

The suit claimed the clinic broke the law by not informing the girl of risks and alternatives, failing to get parental consent and not reporting suspected child abuse.

Pro-choice tolerance on college campuses is alive and well.

Tricia Fraser, the mother of a girl featured in a prolife billboard, is suing the prolife group Life Always claiming the use of her daughter's picture in the billboard was defamatory. Fraser previously made the news when she complained the prolife group didn't apologize for using the image the bought and Fraser allowed to be a stock image.
The billboards featured a larger-than-life picture of Anissa Fraser, an African-American child who was then 4, and the words: "The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb."
In the complaint, filed Tuesday in New York Supreme Court, Anissa's mother Tricia Fraser said she was never warned about the controversial ads or the websites where her daughter's picture also appeared.

The child's visage became part of a "racist, controversial advertising campaign" organized by defendant Life Always and its affiliate Majella Cares, doing business as Heroic Media, the suit says.
