Predators Roam Free In California
Abortionists care more about secrecy than with protecting youngsters from sexual
[Dennis Mountjoy] 2/8/06
the many ugly secrets of the abortion industry – and this
is a business obsessed with secrecy – is the fact that
abortionists routinely conceal the worst form of sexual child
abuse: rape. Many of its “clients” are confused
and frightened youngsters who have been victimized by adults.
That is a
crime. It is statutory rape. California has long outlawed statutory
rape because as a society we understand the need to protect
vulnerable children from adult predators. They call themselves “boy
friends.” These men are neither boys nor friends. They
are adults who prey on confused youngsters desperate for affection.
Mountjoy is a member of the California State Assembly

long can describe the scene – a man in his 20s hustling
or even dragging a frightened and reluctant girl in her early
teens into the building. Abortionists know well what is going
on, but they ignore the crime. Their only concern is to kill
the unborn baby, then send the young mother on her way, to
be victimized again and again.
industry likes to pretend that statutory rape is not a major
problem, but its own research arm, the Alan Guttmacher Institute,
has documented the case against them. A Guttmacher survey showed
that half of the babies born to mothers between ages 15 and
17 were fathered by adults 20 and older. A similar California
survey found that two-thirds of the babies born to teenage
mothers were fathered by adult men. In many cases, men in their
twenties were victimizing sixth and seventh graders.
only covered girls who had given birth to their babies. It’s
most likely that rape is even more common among those who have
been subjected to abortion. We can’t document those cases
because abortionists operate behind a legal shield of secrecy.
That shield is so tight that no one knows how many abortions
are performed in California. The best estimate is 350,000 a
year. Perhaps 60,000 or 70,000 abortions per year are performed
in California on girls under 18.
ago, I introduced a bill that would have pierced that shield.
It would have required the abortion industry to report cases
of pregnant minors as possible cases of child sexual abuse
or rape. Why not? Their own studies show that as many as two-thirds
of these youngsters have been victimized by adults. That made
no difference. The abortion lobby turned out in full force
to oppose this bill. They always do when their business is
in jeopardy. The liberal-dominated Assembly Public Safety Committee,
always happy to do their bidding, killed the bill.
I tried again. This time with AB 1427, a bill that would simply
require that abortionists keep on file a DNA sample from each
aborted baby whose mother is a minor. The idea behind the bill
was simple. Sometime in the future, perhaps after years of
torment, a young mother might go to the police to press charges
against the predator who had fathered her child. If DNA evidence
was available, he could be brought to justice.
I presented my bill to the committee on the same day that it
considered legislation declaring a death penalty moratorium
in California. The committee spent a long time agonizing over
that bill. In the end, the liberal majority voted to halt the
executions of murderers. One of the key reasons was the possibility
of DNA evidence proving the innocence of a death row inmate.
Then I came
forward with my bill. Suddenly, the committee majority was
no longer concerned about DNA evidence. The rules of the political
game had been changed. Why? Because we were dealing with abortion,
and for liberals abortion is a sacred right. The abortion lobby
again staged an all-out assault and the Public Safety Committee
quickly killed this bill, too.
So now sexual
predators continue to roam free in California, victimizing
youngsters and getting away with it, thanks to an Assembly
Committee that is more concerned with preserving the ugly secrets
of the abortion industry than with protecting vulnerable youngsters. -CRO-
