Virginia has become a key battleground state in the fight to end the murder of the pre-born.
Knowing the Republican Governor and Republican-led House of Delegates would block any Pro-Life legislation, the abortion mills are running at full capacity.
But now these parents just filed a $15 million lawsuit against a Virginia abortion clinic for one despicable act on their underage daughter.
Republican Glenn Youngkin ran for Governor as a Pro-Life champion.
Yet so far all he’s done is stop votes on Pro-Life bills.
Coercing minors to abort
That lack of action by Republicans has given abortion mills a green light to continue their barbaric abortions.
It’s also clearly given them the courage to violate the law to kill more babies.
One way they are doing that is by preying on underage minors who are pregnant.
But now they might have gone too far.
A Bristol, Virginia abortion facility and local social worker are accused of coercing a 15-year-old girl into aborting her unborn baby.
According to a new lawsuit against them they also failed to inform her parents, something required by Virginia law.
According to the lawsuit, prior to the abortion, the girl told her mother that a social worker was pressuring her to have an abortion but promised “that she was not going to abort the baby.”
The family is seeking $15.4 million in damages against the Bristol Women’s Health abortion facility and the Dickenson County Department of Social Services on behalf of their daughter and aborted grandchild.
A possible state criminal investigation too
Since Virginia law requires parents to be notified and provide their consent if their daughter is under 18 and wants an abortion, it appears there was criminal activity as well.
But it is not yet known if the abortion mill is also facing an investigation by state authorities for allegedly violating the parental consent law.
According to the lawsuit, on January 19, social services removed the teenage girl from her father’s home and persuaded her to go to an abortion facility – she was about three months pregnant.
While at Bristol Women’s Health abortion mill, her parents allege, the social worker and abortion mill director both worked together to convince their daughter to abort her child.
The girl, referred to only as CRFM due to her age, “remained upset throughout the process, and initially refused to cooperate with any abortion,” the lawsuit states.
Eventually, however, the young teen “was persuaded to abort her baby” and given abortion pills, the lawsuit continued.
The lawsuit also accuses social services and the abortion mill of violating state law by neglecting to notify the parents or obtain their consent for the abortion.
Crossing state lines
The abortion facility, which recently moved from Tennessee to skirt Tennessee’s abortion restrictions, is also is facing a second lawsuit from its landlords.
In December of last year, Bristol landlords Chase King and Chadwick King said Bristol Women’s Health deceived them about how it planned to use their rental property, claiming it would be a “general family practice.”
Not until after the lease was signed did the Kings learn that it was an abortion mill, according to their lawsuit.
Bristol is located on the border of Tennessee and Virginia.
When Roe v. Wade was overturned and Tennessee began protecting unborn babies from abortions, the abortion facility moved across the state border to Virginia where aborting unborn babies is still legal.
And given the Virginia GOP’s failure to take any actions, these abortion mills feel confident in killing children, even if it means breaking the law.
Eileen Roberts, the head of Parents For Life, said the Parental Consent Law in Virginia hasn’t really been enforced since its passage in 2010.
“Parents For Life knew all along, our daughters were not being protected and parental rights were being denied,” she told LifeSiteNews.
Unless Republican leaders receive enough pressure from real Pro-Life activists these stories will continue and more children will be killed.
