PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A woman is facing charges for allegedly taking a 12-year-old Beaver Falls girl to get a birth control implant against her will.
Valerie Fullum, a family acquaintance, has been charged with two felony counts of endangering the welfare of children and a misdemeanor of reckless endangerment.
Fullum is accused of taking Misty Evans’ 12-year-old daughter to a health clinic in Turtle Creek to get birth control, a plastic rod called Nexplanon, implanted in her arm.
Evans told KDKA’s Meghan Schiller that Fullum, who is a family acquaintance, took the girl to the clinic without her permission.
The girl later told her mother what had happened and Evans contacted police.
Evans says her daughter did not ask for birth control, but she chose to “go along” with the situation because she was scared and felt unsafe.
