This illustrates why compliance with these laws is such an indispensable tool for dealing with our national epidemic of older males sexually exploiting underage girls.Third, this report does not address the growing problem of abortion-causing drugs being sold over-the-counter.It is important to understand several things about these cases.First, they are only a representative sample of the total number of criminal prosecutions we found.She was taken for an abortion in August and it is evident the clinic did not file a report since she was pregnant again in February of 2004.She was taken for a second abortion in March and, as before, it is obvious no report was made since the sexual abuse continued for more than another year.
It is evident that no report was filed by the clinic since the assaults on Cara resumed two weeks after the abortion and continued until December when she went to the police.
Court documents show that Bergara gave the girl various drugs including methamphetamine, alcohol, marijuana, PCP, ecstasy and psychedelic mushrooms.
When the relationship turned violent, Rebecca became frightened and went to the police.
However, even if we had the resources to locate, verify, and publish all such cases, that would still be only the tip of the iceberg.
In reality, only a tiny fraction of these instances ever culminate in legal action and, therefore, the vast majority will never be known to anyone other than the victims, the perpetrators and the abortion clinics.
