HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Parents of a 12-year-old girl were arrested Friday after allegedly arranging two abortions for the girl within 15 days, West Virginia State Police say.
Michael and Amanda Adkins of Cabell County were indicted this week by a grand jury on charges of child neglect causing the risk of injury.
State Police and Child Protective Services (CPS) workers were brought in on the case last year after a doctor first reported the pregnancy.
But troopers say the Adkinses -- unbeknownst to anyone in on the investigation -- arranged for a private abortion at a clinic in Charleston. Then, 15 days later, they went back to the first doctor and reported symptoms of miscarriage.

Even as a pro-life conservative I’m not really sure what the crime is here. If my 12-year old daughter got pregnant and I was pro-choice wouldn’t I do this anyhow?
Did the police expect the child to carry to term? Is the second procedure the issue here? Is there a state law there that I don’t know?
Conspiracy to hide a statutory rape?
Sick. Lock them up for life with the murderers and child molesters. No better than these scumbag excuses for parents deserve.
A 12 year old being pregnant is indicative of child rape and abuse. I’m sure that the abortion is secondary to her being molested.
There is a very good chance the parents know who did it and were trying to protect the perp
The perp may be the father.
Shouldn’t there be some testing for DNA, etc., BEFORE the arrest? If she were promiscuous with, say a 14 year-old, then you’ve embarrassed parents who already are embarrassed to have a pregnant 12-year old daughter. Seems like the police should have offered more to the press or the press should have held back on the story until more info was known.
The kid was being sexually abused and the parents did not report it to the police as required by law. You have to report child sexual abuse to the police...unless you are a Catholic Cardnial and your name is Law or a planned parenthood perv employee.
They will be tried and the perv will be discovered. Bet it is daddy and mommy watched.
When will they receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom, a full pardon and high-level positions with Planned Parenthood or HHS?
you can't seem to get it through your head that Cardinal Law was exhonorated of all charges by Mass. Courtsystem....ALL OF IT! and for you to continue to publically besmirch him is PATHETIC.
Health Care workers including abortion clinic personnel are required to report but often don’t as these pervs can be real good REPEAT business for them. The parents tried to obtain an abortion and when the police were notified tried to hide evidence by going to a second clinic that hopefully wouldn’t report anything and work fast.. If there wasn’t anything to hide the police would have interviewed the child , allowed the abortion to proceed and possibly collected the dead baby for DNA evidence.
Two abortions? Geez, I'd think the MSM and the dems would be calling these two parents hero's.
unless you are Planned Parenthood
matter of time I guess
You can’t seem to get it through your fat head that the bastid secretely moved pervs from parish to parish to molest little boys.
You are ignorant. Don’t bring your fat lies to me. I watched it unfold and know some of Law’s victims. Screw you, pervert.
I think that the girls teachers can do this in secracy without notifiying parents.
Good job, abortions cover up child abuse. Many victims have come forward claiming that their pregnancy would have alerted adults, and prevented continual sexual abuse of themselves and sisters in the family.
“...youve embarrassed parents who already are embarrassed to have a pregnant 12-year old daughter.”
A little baby boy or girl has had her arms and legs ripped off in an extremely violent and painful abortion before she died - and you worry about the parent’s embarresment?
Do you even understand what abortion is? Or do you only know what the media tells you?
“The perp may be the father”.
The article states, “Now a paternity test is underway”. You and I share the same thoughts.
Everyone except the poor young girl should be shot repeatedly in the face and tossed into a trash compactor.
I’ve had it with this crap...
I suspect they want to find the father. The parents are anxious to get rid of any baby, ie DNA.
A twelve year old pregnant, is indicative, of our moral collapse. Sex Education in the schools. What do you expect when sex is all they see on T-V. indicative of Rape My A##.
I believe, even in WV a pregnant 12 year old is proof positive a rape occurred.
Clarification, in most states if the impregnator is close enough in age to the impregnatee it’s not classified as a crime. Don’t know about WV.
“A tip eight months later to State Police Cpl. Marlene Moore led to the grand jury indictments.
Now, a paternity investigation is underway.”
So nobody informed the police for 8 months. Unbelievable.
Abortion “provders” feel they are above petty laws like parental notification and informing policen of child molestation and statutory rape
The only thing it proves is she should have had more parental supervision.
Clarification, in most states if the impregnator is close enough in age to the impregnatee its not classified as a crime. Dont know about WV.
If the little girl was “playing doctor” with a 13 y.o. neighbor boy, the parents wouldn’t have rushed off to a second abortionist to dispose of the DNA evidence when the first doctor mentioned alerting the authorities and then return to the original doctor and claim a spontaneous abortion/miscarriage to derail any investigation ... This reeks of abuse by the parents or someone they know... Did you read the article all the way through?
your reply says a lot about you...very classy....anyway, the state investigated him THOROUGHLY and found that he had done nothing illegal. Perhaps the procedures he used weren't to your liking, and I certainly believe that he could have done a better job in handling the situation....that having been said....he took the advice of the psychiatric professionals which was the "thing" at the time. The state ruled that he did everything that he was legally responsible to do. I'm certain that he did everything that thought he was morally responsible to do.....was it enough, obviously, in hindsight (20-20), no. He did what was done at that time and the state agreed that he was not responsible for any criminal activity.
you should put your private vendetta to bed, it can only harm you and will NEVER do anyone any good.
to see how it is harming you, just read your response to me.....is that how you really are????if so, I'm very sorry for you .
B-I-N-G-O...unless it was the father (probably wasn't) it was because she was a cute 12 year old UNSUPERVISED by her parents
