TOPEKA, Kansas, Feb. 27 /Christian Newswire/ -- A complaint has been filed with the Kansas State Board of Healing Arts, (KSBHA), asking that Kansas City abortionist Sherman Zaremski be disciplined for failing to report the rape of an 11-year old girl that resulted in a pregnancy. Confirmation has been received that the case has been assigned to an investigator.
Operation Rescue investigations discovered that it was Zaremski that gave an abortion to the young girl in Wichita at the now closed Central Women's Services, then returned her to the care of her step-father, Robert Estrada, who continued to use her and her sister as virtual sex slaves over several years, resulting in a total of 4 pregnancies, including the birth of twins on one of the girl's 12th birthday.
"Zaremski could have stopped the abuse by reporting her pregnancy to the authorities, but he did not," said OR spokesperson Cheryl Sullenger, who filed the complaint in her capacity as a private citizen. "Because of his refusal to obey the Kansas child abuse mandatory reporting laws, he condemned the girls to several more years of unspeakable torment. He needs to pay for that."
Then-Attorney General Phill Kline had referred the girls' medical records to District Attorney Nola Foulston. Estrada was sentenced last October for the rapes, which were reported to authorities by an adoption agency that had been contacted because of another pregnancy. The girls' mother, Patricia Estrada, was also sentenced for knowing about the sexual attacks, but doing nothing to stop them.
Zaremski was a plaintiff in the controversial Aid for Women v. Foulston Federal Court case where abortionists sued the state for the ability to be exempt from the mandatory child abuse reporting laws. Zaremski continues to run an abortion mill in the Kansas City area.
Operation Rescue bought and closed Central Women's Services, the site of the young girl's abortion, last spring. It is being renovated into OR's nation headquarters and a memorial to the pre-born.
"I cannot walk into that building without thinking of the young victims of Robert Estrada," said Sullenger. "We pray the KSBHA will understand the egregious nature of the crimes against those girls and revoke Zaremski's license for his part in allowing them to continue."
