Why this is crucial
On a Friday morning, Diana Lopez, a mother of four young children, was awakened by a phone call. The call was from a vice-principal at the middle school that two of her children attended, Memorial Academy in San Diego.
Lopez recounted that the vice-principal told her that her 13-year-old daughter had been taken to the hospital because she was bleeding.
Lopez then got a call revealing that her daughter was about to get an abortion of her five-month pregnancy at Planned Parenthood. "I just started screaming," Lopez recalled.
Since Lopez didn’t have a car, she asked a school staff member to take her to the Planned Parenthood on First and Grape streets, in downtown San Diego. After being dropped off there, Lopez demanded that the abortion be stopped.
According to Lopez, the receptionist replied that the clinic couldn’t release any information to her because it was a confidential matter, nothing could be done, and Lopez just needed to wait until her daughter came out from the surgery.
Lopez’s stunned response: "What? She's only 13 and I'm her mother! I want to be there with her!" Lopez also spoke to a supervisor who threatened to call the police.
