Beth Klein Boulder Lawyer Child Advocacy

By Cheryl Wetzstein – The Washington Times – Friday, July 11, 2014

A Denver Planned Parenthood office and four unidentified employees are being sued for failing to recognize child sexual abuse when they gave a 13-year-old girl an abortion and birth control.

The man who brought her in for the abortion and requested the services was the teen’s stepfather and longtime sexual abuser.

A lawyer for Cary Smith, the mother of the child, who is identified as R.Z., said Friday she and her colleagues could not comment on the case.
“We must abide by our professional ethics rules,” Boulder attorney Beth A. Klein said in an email.

Ms. Smith is asking for a jury trial to determine damages for suffering and emotional distress for the child, according to a complaint filed in June in Denver District Court.

Operation Rescue, a pro-life group, publicized the complaint Friday.
