Let's say the victim wants to press charges. If the victim releases the perps identities to the public, since the police won't, could that make the case backfire in anyway?

What? They've already been arrested and their mug shots made public. See earlier in this thread.

It might interest yiu to know that regardless of if we support it or not, it will or will not happen regardless of what we think. Our opinion does not matter in anyway.

In California, for example, no one under 18 can legally have sex; not even two minors. So in every case where a girl in CA, ages 13 to 17 is pregnant, an illegal act has occurred; it is by definition child molestation since the girl cannot consent legally. I suspect Planned Parenthood is not doing such reporting.
Mandatory reporters are only required to report suspected abuse, neglect, or self-harm; they are NOT required to call in every illegal act, particularly one as "gray" as age of consent. So without knowing the specifics on this case, I'm guessing whoever treated her didn't suspect rape/abuse at the time. I mean, if they were calling in every patient who was under 18 and sexually active, that would be the majority of their (and a good percentage of non-PP) patients - and would kind of defeat the purpose of having a safe place to obtain birth control, etc. Also, I think the HIPAA laws come into play here.

Source: I have been a mandatory reporter in a few of my jobs, and this is what we were told. If I saw a teenager using drugs, or even having sex, I was under no obligation to report that; but I did have to report a couple of situations involving abuse and (possible) self-harm.
