Life Links 5/20/13

In Washington State, a man who raped and impregnated a pre-teen girl and took her to Planned Parenthood for an abortion has been sentenced to 6 years in jail and then he'll have to leave the country.
Luis Gonzalez-Jose, 31, raped the girl at a home in rural Whatcom County while her mother was in the shower, according to charging documents filed in Whatcom County Superior Court.

He brought the girl to a Planned Parenthood clinic in August 2012. She told staff members that her 14-year-old boyfriend impregnated her, but she couldn't give the boy's name or address.

Six weeks after the abortion, the girl told a detective how she had really become pregnant. Gonzalez-Jose had insisted "it would be best for her" to not have the baby, according to the documents.

Gonzalez-Jose pleaded guilty to second-degree rape of a child in April. The girl's family refused to cooperate with prosecutors, according to a Department of Corrections report.
A previous article from the Bellingham Herald indicates Planned Parenthood alerted Child Protective Services. 

A woman in Great Britain with severe mental health problems is asking for permission to have an abortion at 23 weeks.
The 37-year-old, who suffers from bipolar and paranoid delusions, had planned the pregnancy with her husband and previously seemed happy to be expecting a child. But last month, the woman, who is 23 weeks pregnant, became convinced that she wanted a termination.
She wants to have a medical abortion, rather than surgery, which means a decision needs to be made "within a matter of days".....
Dr T said he believed she had "the ability to understand the court proceedings," but that she was not capable of making an informed decision about her unborn child. "Because of her persecutory delusions she refuses to take on information which she should be taking on to perform a balanced decision."

In Arkansas, a man has been charged with domestic battery and negligent homicide for running over his pregnant girlfriend with a car.  The woman, who was around 20 weeks pregnant, survived but the child did not. 

Some abortion advocates in Congress are targeting crisis pregnancy centers, claiming they want to ensure that pregnant women aren't deceived.
"No one should ever be subjected to misleading information when they are seeking health care, especially during pregnancy," Menendez said. "We have worked too hard to expand the availability of women's health care services to have any confusion created by those who would deliberately deceive a woman to suit their own purposes."
Too bad Menendez doesn't feel the same way when it comes to abortion clinics deceiving women.
