    The family of a brain-damaged woman filed a lawsuit on her behalf Thursday alleging that she was sexually assaulted at the nursing home where she lived and is pregnant.

    "The woman was clearly raped," said attorney Ed Fox, who is representing the 23-year-old patient's mother in her suit against the nursing home. "Equally outrageous is that they seemed to have concealed the pregnancy."

    The woman has been in "a quasi-vegetative state since birth" and can't walk or talk, Fox said.

    She lived at the Alden Village Health Facility for Children and Young Adults in Bloomingdale when she was discovered to be 29 weeks pregnant on June 11, Fox said.

    The woman has since been moved to another facility. He declined to say where.

    "We are cooperating fully with the investigation that is under way at this time. Alden is committed to the delivery of quality care," said Jane Amata, an Alden vice president, in a statement.

    Bloomingdale police and the Illinois Department of Public Health are investigating, Fox said.

    Casshew--

    Some years back we had a similar case near where I live. In discussing it, someone asked how things could have gotten so far without anyone of the staff noticing it. Did they not chart periods, etc? Sounds like a similar case. Then there was the argument between the let's do an abortion people and the right to life at any cost people. If memory serves me correctly, the abortion was done and the woman was moved to another nursing home. The nursing home where it happened was renamed shortly thereafter...I guess so people would not be able to associate the name with the unfortunate situation that had occurred there.

    29 weeks is a bit late for an abortion... there are no winners in this situation... I hope they collect DNA from any man who may have been near her... I am not sure if that is possible.

    I will have to look for an update on this... June 11 was 5 weeks ago... her baby will be full term in another few weeks, if the pregnancy was not terminated.

    Very disturbing case :(
