Police: Girl Kidnapped By Parents To Have Abortion

(CBS4) After disclosing to her parents that she was pregnant, a 19-year-old Maine girl was allegedly bound with rope and duct tape by the parents, who then allegedly attempted to drive the girl to an abortion clinic in New York on Friday for an emergency abortion, police said.

Katelyn Kampf, 19, was able to escape from her parents' custody when they stopped to use a restroom in Salem, New Hampshire. Police said the girl fled to a local department store where she was able to call police. Police found her behind a shopping mall and, shortly after, found the parents, Nicholas Kampf, 54, and Lola Kampf, 53, driving around a parking lot looking for the girl.

[snip]

The Kampf's were arrested following their interview by New Hampshire and Maine investigators. They have been charged by the Salem, New Hampshire Police with kidnapping. They were transported to the Rockingham County Jail in Manchester, New Hampshire where they were each being held on $100,000 cash bail.

I am personally against abortions. But something has to be done to stop this paticular gene pool if this story is correct.

Most doctors accept kidnapped patients for an abortion. SmileyCentral.com

Well with the liberal Baby Killing doctors, I wouldn't put it past them. An other dollar for the cause, an other notch on the scalpal.

Awesome. Crap like this really makes Mainer's look good. I think those two should be bound up the same way and forced to have labotomies.

If Mr. & Mrs. Kampf had had an abortion they wouldn't be going through this right now.

In other news... HardHat - the next post of copyrighted material over 75-words gets deleted.

These two parents are off their rocker...

Doesn't mean they are liberal or conservative...I have found that both sides of the fringe are more closely related...than apart.

Numero Uno - the girl is over 18, so the parents had no legal right to interfere with her decisions, unless she is still their legal ward due to mental illness or other issues.

Numero Dos - they were wrong to do what they did, if the alleged acts were committed.

Wrong.
Period.

One question however, why drive her all the way to NY, when there's a clinic in Portland?

I agree with Charlotte. These folks are several ants short of a picnic.

Maine law bars abortions after viability. New York is a so-called "abortion on demand" state.

David, thank you for the clarification.

Amended post:

The parents were WRONG to do what they did. Plain wrong, plain and simple.

I'm glad the girl was able to free herself and get help. Her parents are the ones who really need the help.

The funny thing is that they apparently assumed that the abortion clinic would perform an abortion on an unwilling women.

I hope her parents realize that in addition to gaining themselves a real legal and financial mess, they have likely sacrificed any future relationship with their child, and their grandchild. It would be a cold day in Hell before I'd be knocking on their door again, if I were her.

So is Maine, like New York, remember we failed to put a ban on partial birth abortions.

No clinic in Maine (or any other state) should perform an abortion on any patient who is unwilling to have any such procedure done. Don't care what age she is. It's wrong.

Sure. But apparently they thought that a clinic would. I wonder if they checked.

----

What does this mean:

[i]Cumberland County Sheriff Mark Dion said detectives planned to interview medical providers to find out what advice the parents were given about the pregnancy.

"It´s a pretty dramatic response to her being pregnant, some would say outrageous response," Dion said. "So before we draw conclusions, we need to flesh out the precursor facts."[/i]

Is the Sheriff suggesting that the medical advice could provide some defense to the kidnapping?

----

This would be a much bigger story if the parents had kidnapped her to keep her from having an abortion. That would be national news and all the liberals would be up in arms.

I guess anything is possible...however, I personally think both would get equal press...these parents are nuts...

Parents facing felony charges

NORTH YARMOUTH - The former owners of Portland's State Theatre are scheduled to be arraigned on kidnapping charges today in New Hampshire, ...

[snip]

Abortion laws in Maine prohibit the termination of pregnancy after the fetus is able to live outside the uterus, unless the mother's life or health is at stake. [url=http://pressherald.mainetoday.com/news/local/060918kampfs.html]New York law prohibits abortions after the 24th week of pregnancy[/url] ...

[snip]

Investigators said they did not know whether the case would be prosecuted at the state or federal level, because Katelyn Kampf was kidnapped and taken over state lines. If it is prosecuted at the state level, the parents will likely face additional charges in Maine, Dion said.

Is it true the parents were identified by their license plate "ILOVENY"?

From the article:
[quote]The Kampfs moved to Maine from New York in the mid-1980s, according to reports in the Portland Press Herald/Maine Sunday Telegram archives.[/quote]
Might not be so far-fetched, Finbar!

[quote]
Katelyn Kampf is a former honor student at Waynflete School, a private school in Portland, and was living in Portland with her boyfriend before the incident.
...snip
Police said Katelyn Kampf was at her parents' house in North Yarmouth when she argued with them Friday morning and her parents forced her into their Lexus.
...snip
The Kampfs live at 64 Country Lane in North Yarmouth, at the end of a private, gravel street where neighbors on Sunday said the two kept to themselves.[/quote]

I bet a dozen croissants that the reason they loaded their daughter into the Lexus and took off for NY is that her boyfriend is either 1) of another ethnic flavor or 2) another socioeconomic flavor, maybe both. Perhaps this was their first inkling that their A-list debutante daughter was pregnant, and I can see why she didn't tell them before, if so.

My thoughts exactly Naran. The father of the child is either African American or jewish. Then again, I could be all wrong.

No, I suspect you're in the right ballpark, although with a last name like "Kampf," [i]Jewish[/i] may not be what they're worried about. :wink:

The article stated she now has a restraining order against her parents, and is staying with her boyfriend's family. However, I'm surprised the parents haven't been bailed out, since it would seem that money isn't a problem in the Kampf parental home.
