Lawsuit claims Planned Parenthood left baby parts in patient after abortion w/o anesthesia
2013: A woman has filed suit against Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains and one of its doctors, claiming the abortion facility forced her to undergo an abortion without anesthesia and then left part of her baby’s body inside of her. The lawsuit alleges that 40-year-old Ayanna Byer changed her mind about the abortion after Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs could not provide her with the agreed-upon intravenous anesthesia for pain, but the abortionist proceeded with the abortion anyway. Attorneys for the woman say that once the abortion was complete, Byer was sent home but ended up in an emergency room two days later because the abortionist had botched the procedure. Below is partial statement from an ER physician who treated the women at the hospital. ( H/T Life News)
“These are my concerns,” the doctor’s statement continues. “No practicing physician can maintain privileges to practice and perform surgery if they do not provide specific coverage for their patients in case of a complication. It is considered ‘abandonment’ of your patient. It is not acceptable to refer your patients to the Emergency Department and assume the on-call doctor will take care of any complications and assume all the risk associated with the complications. It is medically inappropriate for a physician to remove products of conception and not confirm the diagnosis with pathology. I know of no physician or hospital that would allow the removal of a specimen of this nature and assume what the diagnosis was by just ‘looking’ at it.”
According to Abortiondocs.org the following abortionist works for Planned Parenthood

Some additional info on this organization in 2012:
Monica McCafferty Director of Marketing and Communications, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains
Yesterday, Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains reacted to a Colorado Springs Gazette editorial declaring that the organization is probably worse than Penn State when it comes to covering up child sexual abuse; see our previous coverage below. Since then, Planned Parenthood has sent more info intended to dispel “myths” attacks like the editorial tend to perpetuate.
The editorial, written by onetime Westword profile subject Wayne Laugesen, argued that Planned Parenthood operators routinely fail to report evidence of sexual abuse against minors who call the outfit for services. Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Monica McCafferty told us that local policy calls for the termination of any employee who doesn’t inform authorities about possible crimes, adding that no such incidents have taken place to her knowledge. Late yesterday, she reinforced the assertion with this statement:
While federal and state privacy laws prohibit us from discussing information related to any patient, we can state unequivocally that we maintain and enforce a zero-tolerance policy with respect to any failure to report child abuse and neglect as required by the Colorado Children’s Code. We regularly train our employees on their reporting obligations and we actively audit our own practices and procedures to make certain they are followed.
Well that statement doesn’t seem to pan out when you listen to actual taped phone calls to Planned Parenthood in Colorado and around the nation, and how they handle teh request for an abortion by a 14 year old child admitting she was impregnated by a 22 year old man !

CALLER: Oh. Well, could I ask you real quick? I’m just worried about
getting an abortion, because my friend told me that — like I’m going to be 14 next
month, and she said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my
boyfriend’s 22. Could he just sign — is he old enough to sign whatever it is and
you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: You’re 14 and your boyfriend is 22?
CALLER: Well, I’ll be 14 next month.
CLINIC: So you’re 13.
CLINIC: Legally that’s statutory rape, and if you were to express that to
someone at our clinic we would definitely have to report it.
CALLER: Oh. But what should I do then?
CLINIC: You don’t have to have parental consent to come here for an
abortion. But like I said, if you express it to someone in the clinic and we
document that, then legally we have to report it.
CALLER: So should somebody else bring me then?
CLINIC: I would suggest that.
CALLER: The thing is, I’m going to be 14 later on this month, and my friend
said that you guys would have to tell my parents. But my boyfriend’s 22. Is he
old enough to take care of it, and you wouldn’t have to tell anybody?
CLINIC: You’re 13 years old right now?
CLINIC: No. Hold on just a second, hon.
CALLER: All right.
CLINIC: What we would like to do to get you in here to kind of see where
you’re at in terms of — there’s no such thing as parental notification, but we can
kind of just figure out what’s going on with your situation and the fee and all
that kind of stuff, and to explain what happens during an abortion and all that.
CALLER: Me and my boyfriend were talking about all this. And he said he
would pay cash for everything. But we don’t want anyone to know about us. Would
he have to fill out any forms or sign anything if he was paying for it?
CLINIC: Yeah, sure. Let me find out for you. Hold on.
CLINIC: Appointments for you and all your information would be confidential.
CALLER: Okay. So my boyfriend wouldn’t have to sign anything?
CLINIC: No, he doesn’t sign anything. It doesn’t have anything to do with
(Later in conversation):
CALLER: Well, I just don’t want anyone to know about me and my boyfriend.
My friend said that since I’m going to be 14 later on this month that my parents
have to know about all this. But my boyfriend’s 22, and he said that he would take
care of everything. So would that be all right and you wouldn’t have to tell
Later on Planned Parenthood gives the teen being abused by a 22 year old adult an out- call another location and keep quiet:
CLINIC: Sure. But you understand that the government or the Social Services
does require that we report that because they consider that — because you’re a
teen and he’s an adult.
CALLER: Well, what can happen?
CLINIC: I don’t know what Social Services does once we report that. But
that’s entirely up to you if you want to be seen here. But we’re required to do
that. I can give you referrals of other places if you’re interested. But the
first order of business for you is to really have a pregnancy test.
CALLER: Yeah. Well, if I didn’t tell anybody about him, would that be all
right, and you wouldn’t have to say anything then?
CLINIC: Well, probably not being truthful is going to be a problem, but
that’s up to you to decide what it is that you want to do. I wouldn’t make any
recommendations to you on that score.
CLINIC: But let me give you some other providers too that might be helpful.
First you want to give yourself a pregnancy test.
Mayfair is in Aurora. And that’s 303-696-9761. That’s another office. Dr.
Bernstein, and that’s 303-399-6120.
CALLER: What was that last one?
CALLER: Okay? So if I don’t tell them anything, that would be better?
CLINIC: That wouldn’t be an advice that I would give you.
