Complaints filed against 9 Indiana abortionists who failed to report suspected sexual abuse

Indiana Right to Life has just announced that five news conferences given in the state today will focus on multiple complaints filed against nine Indiana abortionists for failing to report abortions on underage patients for possible sexual abuse — 48 times. A press release from IN RTL states:

Forty-eight consumer complaints have been filed against nine Indiana abortion doctors who have allegedly failed to follow the legal reporting requirements to protect young children from sex abuse. The doctors are: Jeffrey Glazer, Caitlin Bernard, Cassandra Cashman, Carol Dellinger, Mandy Gittler, Kathleen Glover, Martin Haskell, Resad Pasic and Sarah Turner. They are employed at all licensed Indiana abortion facilities: Women’s Med Center in Indianapolis, Clinic for Women in Indianapolis, and Planned Parenthood in Indianapolis, Lafayette, Bloomington and Merrillville.

The pro-life group adds that some of the minors that went unreported “were as young as 12 and 13.”

Abortionist Martin Haskell, listed above, is perhaps best known as the pioneer of the D&X, or partial-birth abortion.

Clearly, the failure to help possible victims of sexual abuse is not limited to Planned Parenthood, the abortion industry leader. The failure is systemic. Live Action recently launched its Aiding Abusers docuseries and investigative report, noting several cases in which young girls were returned to their abusers by Planned Parenthood — even when they told abortion facility staff that they were being abused.

News conferences will be streamed live at These conferences will take place at various locations around the state — some outside the abortion facilities themselves.

Indiana Right to Life’s vice president of policy enforcement, Cathie Humbarger, called for “the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, the Indiana State Department of Health and local prosecutors to take appropriate action against these abortion doctors, including review of their medical licenses and fines for each non-report.”

It is well past time to protect girls and women from an industry which profits from their abortions and then returns them to the same abusive situations.
