“Don’t think this case is a one of a kind case. It is actually very typical of what we see on a regular basis from the abortion industry,” ~ Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher.
An abortionist in Florida who returned a child to her sexual abuser after performing an abortion on her is still in business despite his flagrant disregard of mandatory reporting laws in the state.
Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas discovered this while doing research to document how the abortion industry covers for child sexual predators. That research has been published in a report entitled, The Cover-Up of Child Sexual Abuse which can be read herewww.childpredators.com.
The report reveals that the failure of abortion clinics to comply with mandatory reporting laws is having profound, real-world consequences for the victims of child sexual abuse.
Case in point is that of a 12-year-old victim who was taken to a National Abortion Federation clinic operated by Florida abortionist Michael Benjamin by the pedophile who impregnated her, Jermaine Jones, in an attempt to cover-up his crime.
CONNECTING THE DOTS:
Life Dynamics discovered that the Florida Board of Medicine had an open case against Benjamin who runs an abortion clinic out of his Tamarac office, ( a suburb of Ft. Lauderdale) for not reporting an abortion he performed on a 12-year-old child.
At the same time, Life Dynamics was reviewing a file for a pedophile who had sexually raped a 12-year-old girl and had taken her for an abortion in the same area. Life Dynamics then requested the arrest and offense report for the rapist from the Alachua County Sheriff’s Department and realized that these two cases were the same. The details were shocking, graphic, and tragic.
Although mandatory reporters, the rape of this child was essentially covered-up by two abortion clinics and their staff, the National Abortion Federation, as well as the abortionist.
In response, Life Dynamics has decided to emphasize the importance of prosecuting those who fail to report the sexual abuse of children by publishing a timeline of the events in this case.
To protect her identity, Life Dynamics will refer to the young victim as “Emily.”
In May/June of 2009 Florida authorities say that 34 year-old Jermaine Jones began sexually assaulting the 12-year-old daughter of his girlfriend, Janet Marshall, and, by November, the child was pregnant.
What happened over the next days should horrify the public and law enforcement alike.
ABORTION CLINIC NUMBER ONE
November 2, 2009
“Emily” is pregnant and is taken to an abortion clinic identified in a police report as being on 23rd Avenue in Gainesville, Florida. This is presumed to be the All Women’s Health Center located at 1135 NW 23rd Avenue. This facility is a member of the National Abortion Federation. (NAF)
A member of the clinic staff informs Marshall that her daughter’s pregnancy is too advanced for them to do the abortion. Marshall is then instructed to call the NAF hotline for a referral to another one of its facilities where later abortions are done.
THE NATIONAL ABORTION FEDERATION
A counselor on the hotline refers Marshall to a NAF facility in Tamarac, Florida, operated by abortionist Michael Benjamin. During that call, the counselor also informs Marshall that NAF has a fund she can access that will pay for all but $200 of the cost. Jones and Marshall schedule the abortion and leave with “Emily” for the six-hour drive to Tamarac.
ABORTION CLINIC NUMBER TWO
November 4, 2009
Using ultrasound, Benjamin establishes the pregnancy at 24 weeks and begins a multi-day abortion procedure by installing cervical dilators. It is later determined by state health department investigators that Benjamin’s pre-abortion counseling with “Emily” lasted between six and eight minutes.
“Emily” is brought back to the clinic for additional dilation. At this time, digoxin was injected into the heart of her unborn child in order to cause death.
November 6, 2009
Benjamin completes the abortion by removing the dead baby intact. Afterward, he releases “Emily” to Jones who then leaves with her.
RAPE REPORTED BY PEDIATRICIAN NOT ABORTION CLINICS OR NAF
During a check-up of “Emily” by a pediatrician in Alachua County, Florida, the doctor determines that she has been sexually active and reports it to the Florida Department of Children and Families. Their investigation confirmed that an illegal sexual relationship had existed and the Alachua County Sheriff’s Department (ACSD) was notified.
January 11, 2010
As part of its investigation, the Sheriff’s Department requests documents from the Medical Quality Assurance division of the Florida Department of Health (FDH) necessary to file a complaint against Benjamin for failing to comply with his duties as a mandated reporter.
February 10, 2010
Jones is arrested by Alachua County Sheriff’s Department detectives.
March 8, 2010
Jones is indicted on two felony charges related to the sexual assaults on “Emily.”
May 27, 2010
Jones pleads guilty and receives a 15-year prison sentence.
MEDICAL BOARD FILES COMPLAINT AGAINST BENJAMIN
January 21, 2011
The Florida Department of Health files an Administrative Complaint against Benjamin related to hisfailure to comply with the state’s mandatory reporting statute. During the ensuing investigation, an employee of this abortion clinic tells officials that she was not sure why no report was made, saying “Maybe we’ve been hardened with so many kids coming in.”
April 14, 2014
In addition to assessing a $10,000 fine against Benjamin, the Florida Department of Health (FDH) ordered Michael Benjamin to pay the costs associated with their investigation and said that he must attend classes regarding his duties to report suspected child sexual abuse.
BENJAMIN TO BE MONITORED BY CO-WORKER FROM ABORTION CLINIC INVOLVED IN SIMILAR INCIDENT
The FDH also put Benjamin’s medical license on probation for two years and assigned Dr. Frank Rodriquez to monitor him during that period. This was done, despite the fact that Rodriquez and Benjamin were known to be co-workers at another NAF abortion clinic where, in 2006, an incident similar to the one involving “Emily” had occurred.
In that case, high school teacher, Andrew Loyd Foster, impregnated one of his underage students and took her to the Presidential Women’s Center in Palm Beach County for an abortion.
Florida Education Practices Commission against Andrew Loyd Foster. Case no. 09-0218-RT
Approximately three months later, the victim’s mother learned of the situation and contacted authorities. Given this gap in time, it is obvious that the clinic did not file a report with the state. It was also found that Foster had not only engaged in a sexual relationship with this girl, but with another minor student at the same time. In 2008, he was convicted on two counts of unlawful sexual contact with a minor and sentenced to five years in prison.
• Abortionist Michael Benjamin does a 24-week abortion on a 12-year-old child after a six-to-eight minute counseling session with her.
• Following the procedure, Benjamin releases the girl to the adult male who was assaulting her and had driven her six hours to the abortion clinic.
• Although neither of the two abortion clinics where this child was taken complied with the state’s mandatory reporting law, no criminal charges were brought against anyone at either facility. This was also true about the counselor on the NAF hotline even though there can be no doubt that he or she was made aware of the patient’s age.
• Benjamin was given a slap on the wrist by the health department to be overseen by one of his colleagues. Today, Benjamin continues to operate his Tamarac abortion clinic and he is still a member of the National Abortion Federation.
• If the pediatrician who saw “Emily” after the abortion had also ignored the mandatory reporting law, this sexual predator would not have been apprehended. In that case, it is virtually certain that (a) his assaults on this child would have resumed and (b) there would have been additional victims in the future.
Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher said that the details of this case, as shocking as they appear are not unique, “Don’t think this case is a one of a kind case. It is actually very typical of what we see on a regular basis from the abortion industry.”
Crutcher encourages the public to review Life Dynamics’ Child Predators website and to pressure law enforcement officials to prosecute those who violate mandatory reporting laws, “It is self-evident that when a minor girl seeks an abortion, she represents a textbook example of why mandatory reporting laws were created in the first place. Despite this, we have consistently found that the law enforcement community is functionally indifferent to the problem of abortion clinics not complying with mandatory reporting statutes even in the face of irrefutable evidence that violations are occurring. Among all the cases we researched we never found one example in which criminal charges were brought against an abortion clinic employee for failing to comply with their state’s mandatory reporting statutes andMichael Benjamin was no exception..”
All legal documents necessary to confirm this analysis are on file at Life Dynamics Incorporated in Denton, Texas.
