Planned Parenthood abortionist – Partner had abortion patient die – testimony at Gosnell trial


Planned Parenthood Abortionist Charles Benjamin testified that he is one of about four abortion providers left in the city since Kermit Gosnell’s arrest two years ago. Gosnell, 72, is charged with causing the deaths of a patient and seven babies who prosecutors say were born alive. Defense lawyer Jack McMahon has maintained that no babies were born alive.

Benjamin, who said he has performed 40,000 abortions over a 30-year career, testified Monday that he doesn’t do them after 21 weeks, or three weeks under the 24-week limit in Pennsylvania. Benjamin also said he performs abortions after 17 weeks gestation in a hospital. That’s in contrast to Gosnell, who performed about 1,000 abortions a year — virtually all at his clinic. He shows up on Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania financial reports in 2007 and 2008 and 2008 2009 2010 racking in hundreds of thousands of dollars each year from the tax funded Planned Parenthood abortion clinic.

On cross-examination, Benjamin did testify that his partner once had an abortion patient die of sepsis.

Who is Benjamin’s partner?

Apparently Charles Benjamin testified that his “PARTNER” was involved in an abortion related death. Was that abortion death reported? Who is the abortionist “partner” who was involved in that death? Well…the media report linked here did not say…..but- records online with Planned Parenthood and the other clinic where Benjamin performed abortions gives us an indication who his many “PARTNERS” were:

Beverly M VaughnOne possibility is a doctor listed as board member of the clinic he works for. According to a 2010 990 Dr. Beverly M Vaughn , M.D. is a board member of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania. She has no complaints on file with the state, and we do not know if this is who Benjamin was referring to.

PPSEPA Benjamin Charles

Another possible “PARTNER” is – Lee Anthony Trip, MD who was listed along with Charles Benjamin on the 2010990 as a physician at the Planned Parenthood clinic.

Trip earned a whopping $566,334 in ONE YEAR working for the TAX FUNDED ABORTION GIANT !

Anthony Trip MD- who was employed by Planned Parenthood has a State Action on file – read here and at that time had performed over 8000 abortions. He dates back to at least yearsat the abortion giant’s center. He has been raking in the BIG BUCKS $$$$ for years: (2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008 2009 2010 ). Trip earned MAJOR BUCKS with the tax funded abortion giant each year!

Charles David Benjamin earned a whopping $329,810 doing abortions for Planned Parenthood.

Apparently Charles Benjamin was involved in some sort of court case involving a teen who sued him, in this CASE: Stephanie Carter v. Charles D. Benjamin, D.O. a teenager was transported across state lines for an abortion, and suffered issues of standard of care, informed consent, and psychological trauma following abortion. here – Stephanie Carter, at the age of 17 years, had the induced abortion performed by Dr Charles Benjamin. On the consent form, the words “breast cancer” did not appear. Stephanie Carter filed a lawsuit against Dr Benjamin alleging, in part, that Benjamin did not inform her of the breast cancer risks of that induced abortion.

And according to World Magazine, (State of the states: 1/10/2004), “When a Pennsylvania teenager , filed by Stephanie Carter, 19, of Hatboro, Pa, (“Sarah,” as she was referred to in a lawsuit) became pregnant at 16, a high-school guidance counselor told her how to get around all that: All Sarah needed to do was cross the state line. The counselor then arranged for the teen a secret abortion in neighboring New Jersey, where no laws require parental involvement or informed consent. That was in 1998. In 2000, after being diagnosed with abortion-related post-traumatic stress syndrome and learning that studies link abortion with breast cancer (ABC connection), Sarah sued abortionist Charles Benjamin and the Cherry Hill Women’s Center in Cherry Hill, N.J. Her lawsuit alleged that Dr. Benjamin and his clinic should be held liable for violating Pennsylvania laws meant to protect her. In October 2003, on the eve of trial, the defendants settled out of court, agreeing to pay an undisclosed sum to cover Sarah’s post-abortion counseling and future health care Her parents, Harold and Marie Carter, already have settled a lawsuit against the Hatboro-Horsham School District. They claimed that
her guidance counselor advised her to get an abortion in suburban Cherry Hill, N.J., where state parental notification laws aren’t as strict as Pennsylvania’s.


Another “Partner” works with Benjamin who performs abortions at his private office Bruce Berger, MD where he does abortions thru 20 weeks.


Here On December 29, 1999, Antoinette Hartdegen filed a medical malpractice action
against Appellee, Bruce Berger, M.D. (“Berger”)1 claiming that Berger failed to obtain her informed consent before performing a tubal ligation/
sterilization procedure. Bruce Berger performed the surgery after he performed an abortion because she claimed she was a rape victim. After the abortion she received the Tubal Ligation and suffered complications which resulted in a hospital stay for emergency bowel repair. The jury ruled in favor of Berger.


One more possibility is Mark_Woodland1A 2010 Board Member is Mark B. Woodland, M.D

ANOTHER would be Paul Copit, MD who worked for Planned Parenthood in 2006 taking in $61,300. He appears to still be listed as with PP. Copit supervised Anthony Trip after he was disciplined by the state. (here)

We may never know just who Charles Benjamin was referring to when he testified that his “Partner” was involved in the death of an abortion patient. But, one thing we do know is that women DO DIE from abortions and that is not a rare event. For proof go to
