PHOENIX — A pro-life group wants the state Health Services
Department to use new powers to search abortion clinics without a warrant to
investigate Planned Parenthood of Arizona.
Alliance Defending Freedom sent a formal complaint to Health Services Director
Will Humble on Thursday asking him to investigate after a counselor at a Tempe
clinic allegedly failed to report that a teen girl’s pregnancy was the result of
a sexual assault. Humble said he’s reviewing the letter.
The Arizona Attorney General’s office is already looking into the allegation.
The allegation was contained in police reports against an 18-year-old San Tan
Valley man charged with sexually assaulting several underage girls.
Planned Parenthood previously said it works to comply with all state laws and
was looking into the report. Requests for comment Friday weren’t immediately
