ATLANTA, Georgia, June 13, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Georgia woman will now spend a year behind bars with the opportunity to contemplate the harm she did to a 16 year-old girl and her family by posing as the girl’s mother and forcing her into an abortion with the aid of an abetting abortion clinic.
Cindi Cook, 44, will spend a year in the DeKalb County prison, followed by a year of probation, for acting as an impostor and taking the victim, a minor, to the Northside Women’s Clinic. Posing as the girl’s mother, Cook paid for the abortion, because she didn’t want the girl to give birth to her son’s baby.
Cook forged a note saying that she was the victim’s mother, which the Northside Women’s clinic accepted as proof enough of parental consent. The clinic did not bother to validate Cook’s identity, but accepted the paper as a good enough permission slip for an abortion.
The victim’s family, which has requested to remain anonymous, said that Cook bullied their daughter into having the abortion without their knowledge and was assisted in this crime by the abortion clinic.
The victim’s parents, however, have difficulty believing how Cook could do so much harm, but only serve prison on a misdemeanor conviction. They can’t understand why the crime Cook committed is only a misdemeanor and believe the law ought to be changed to stiffen the penalty….
May I respectfully suggest 25 years to life?
Abortion is going down. It’s all starting to unravel. No amount of money or PR is going to be able to salvage it. The writing’s on the wall.
