A Montgomery County couple filed suit in U.S. District Court yesterday alleging that a high-school guidance counselor helped their daughter get a secret, out-of-state abortion in order to avoid the Pennsylvania law that requires consent of at least one parent.

According to the suit, the guidance counselor strongly encouraged the girl to seek an abortion in New Jersey by suggesting that it was her only viable choice. He then “facilitated” the abortion by allowing the girl to make long-distance calls from his office to her former boyfriend in Tennessee, and then cashing the checks he sent her through school bank accounts.
