ENGLEWOOD, CO, March 11, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Denver-area man offered to pay for an abortion to cover up his years-long sexual abuse of a young girl, which he used to produce child pornography, according to the FBI.

Federal investigators say that Mervin Edy Wolf began sexually molesting a young girl who lived with his relatives in California in September 2007. They say he gradually escalated the intensity of their encounters and filmed them, making trips to California up to three times a year.

The Denver Post reports the minor was seven-years-old when the abuse began, and nine when Wolf began producing child porn.

In January 2013, she contacted Wolf to say she thought she was pregnant. “Wolf told the minor child he would pay for an abortion if she was in fact pregnant,” the FBI reported. However, two home pregnancy tests that he mailed her came back negative.

She came forward to authorities because she was afraid Wolf would begin molesting her younger sibling.

On March 5, agents recorded a phone call in which they say Wolf admitted having sexual relations with the young teen and filming them, but told her that he had destroyed all the images.

Moments later, the FBI raided the 61-year-old man's home in Englewood, Colorado. They charged him one day later with illicit sexual conduct and production of child pornography. Recovered video and electronic equipment is being searched for pornographic images.

Other family members and two former foster children – both younger than seven – have subsequently come forward to report being sexually abused by Wolf. Authorities filed no additional charges but revoked the family's foster license.

Wolf has already appeared before a magistrate and is expected to have a preliminary court hearing later this morning.

If convicted, Wolf would almost certainly die in prison. The minimum sentence is 30 years, and he could be given life. He also faces a $250,000 fine.

“The FBI and our partners will continue to vigorously investigate all allegations of conduct that exploits and jeopardizes the wellbeing of our children,” said FBI Denver Special Agent in Charge Thomas Ravenelle. “We encourage anyone who suspects this type of activity to immediately report their information to law enforcement.”

The abortion industry has proven reticent about reporting suspected statutory rape.

Undercover investigators have repeatedly found abortion facilities willing to cover up for statutory rape in California, Arizona, Indiana, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Kansas, Louisiana, and all over the world.

Pro-life observers say the decision to sell the morning-after pill without a prescription makes it even easier for molesters and child pornographers to cover up their crimes. Last November, Students for Life of America filmed pharmacists in Ohio, Virginia, New York, and South Carolina selling Plan B One-Step to a man who admitted he was using the drug to cover up the fact that he impregnated a 15-year-old girl.

Planned Parenthood of Indiana fought and won a nearly two-year-long court battle against then-state Attorney General Steve Carter, when he requested the medical records of 73 girls under the age of 14 who had abortions.

On March 5, the Indiana Commission for Women awarded state Planned Parnethood CEO Betty Cockrum the Torchbearer Award, “the State of Indiana's most prestigious recognition of women.”
