Planned Parenthood employee arrested for sexual battery for fondling patient, police say
SACRAMENTO, CA, December 5, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Police in Sacramento have arrested a medical assistant at a Planned Parenthood facility for allegedly sexually touching a patient.
Jorge Martin-Santana, 28, has been charged with sexual battery, a misdemeanor.
The Sacramento Police Department issued a warrant for his arrest Tuesday and say he turned himself in the next day.
Police in California’s capital city investigated the complaint, which was made in October, with Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office.
It was not immediately clear which of Planned Parenthood’s three Sacramento clinics Martin-Santana worked at. Two of the three are abortion facilities.
Investigators believe, but are not certain, that Martin-Santana victimized only one patient.
Although not widely reported, mothers have faced sexual misconduct or abuse at abortion facilities worldwide.
Another California abortionist, Laurence Reich, had been accused of sexual molestation in 1982 before pleading “no contest” to four charges in 1984. He finally lost his license in 2006 after another round of sexual battery and misconduct charges.
In 2003, a jury convicted Arizona abortionist Brian Finkel of Arizona was convicted of 24 counts of sexual abuse.
Last November, the Oregon State Board of Nursing (OSBN) issued an order banning abortion nurse Evett Gradwohl from “practicing as a Registered Nurse in any capacity or functioning as a caregiver in any setting” after hearing allegations that she had sexually molested anesthetized abortion patients at Lovejoy Surgicenter in Portland, Oregon.
