NAF abortion clinic closed then allowed to re-opened by state hired doc that made racist comments

H/T

State health officials say they will closely monitor operations at a southeast Charlotte abortion clinic that has reopened after briefly losing its license.

A Preferred Women

A Preferred Woman’s Health Center on Latrobe Drive reopened May 15 after the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services lifted its order suspending operations. State investigators in April revoked the clinic’s license after determining that staffers were orally administering the liquid drug methotrexate, which is used to induce abortions.

The drug is meant to be injected or taken in pill form, according to the state report and health officials.

State records show A Preferred Woman’s Health Center is one of only two abortion clinics in the state to have its license suspended in the past 14 years.

During that time, the Charlotte clinic has been shut down twice. The clinic’s license was revoked in February 2007 after state investigators found as many as 16 safety and regulatory issues, documents show.

Before then the only other clinic suspended by the state was A Woman’s Choice of North Carolina in Greensboro in 1999.

A Preferred Woman’s Health Center was allowed to resume operations after the state received affidavits showing that physicians and staffers had changed their policies and “ceased the use of methotrexate in an oral manner,” documents show.

“There will be ongoing monitoring of A Preferred Woman’s Health Center to ensure compliance,” said a DHHS official.

When reached by phone, a clinic secretary told the Observer that owner Lois Turner declined to comment.

The most recent investigation of the Charlotte clinic began after state health officials received a complaint that an injectable version of methotrexate had been administered orally. Health officials say that is dangerous to patients and ineffective.

“This is the first case in which the route of administration (of methotrexate) was contrary to the manufacturer’s recommendations,” the DHHS official said.

The medication had been drawn up in a syringe and then put into a cup for patients to drink, according to a clinic nurse interviewed by state investigators.

In one case, a 19-year-old woman came to the clinic for an abortion procedure and was given methotrexate orally. A month later, she returned to the clinic, still pregnant, and had to undergo a surgical abortion procedure, according to state documents.

Dr. Mitchell Creinin, a California-based obstetrician who was among the first to study methotrexate abortion procedures, questioned the practices at the Charlotte clinic.

“There is sufficient data to be using methotrexate but not the way they used it,” said Creinin, who is the chairman for the University of California Davis’ Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. “It’s no different than hearing about an orthopedic surgeon cutting off the wrong leg.”

But National Abortion Federation medical director Dr. Matthew Reeves said the Charlotte clinic’s use of methotrexate wasn’t as risky as Creinin implied.

A Preferred NAF

The National Abortion Federation, a professional association representing abortion providers, recommends A Preferred Woman’s Health Center as one of three abortion clinics in Charlotte.

Reeves noted that a Canadian physician a couple of decades ago studied the effectiveness of orally giving patients liquid methotrexate to induce abortions. That study found the method to be safe and effective, Reeves said.

But Creinin said one study is not sufficient to support the drug’s use in that way.

A Preferred Order to Close

WHAT INSPECTORS FOUND
Inspectors from the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services conducted a surprise visit to Latrobe April 19-20 and did additional investigation work in late April and early May.

They found “that conditions at A Preferred Women’s Health Center, LLC, present an imminent danger to the health, safety and welfare of the clients and that emergency action is required to protect the clients.”

They found that the facility was improperly administering chemical abortions and improperly examining post-abortive women before they were discharged from surgery. The same day they issued their report, May, 10, state regulators ordered A Preferred Women’s Health Center shut down “no later than 5 o’clock p.m.” that day, saying the decision was “emergency action … required to protect the clients.”

A Preferred Women’s Health Center is a chain of three abortion facilities, with locations also in Raleigh and in Augusta, Ga. Its website estimates that its staff has performed abortions on more than 100,000 women over the past 20 years.

An abortionist at A Preferred Women’s Health Center in Charlotte, Dr. Ashutosh Ron Virmani, OB/GYN, has received several reprimands during his medical career in North Carolina, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte suspended his privileges there in 1995. Virmani has a license to practice medicine in North Carolina.

There are three abortion facilities in Charlotte, among at least seven located within the area of the Diocese of Charlotte. Besides the facility at 3220 Latrobe Drive, there is Family Reproductive Health at 700 E. Hebron St. and Carolina Center for Women at 421 N. Wendover Road.

Abortionist Ashutosh Ron Virmani kills children at A Preferred Women’s Health Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

On July 26 pro-life activists paid a visit to Virmani’s home asking him to repent. The rant that followed was shocking, revealing at least in part what motivates Virmani: overt racism – culminating with his accusation, “Why don’t you adopt those ugly black babies?”

According to NEWSMEAT, this RACIST Abortion doctor is a HUGE democrat Contributor:

Virmani was born in India. He came to the United States in 1976 and attended medical school in New Jersey between 1981 and 1985. It is strange that Virami was so racist about the black babies he loves to abort, because RACISM was his exact claim against a hospital that removed his clinical privileges. According to the AMA news, Presbyterian Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital Matthews, part of Novant Health Inc., summarily suspended Dr. Virmani’s staff membership and clinical privileges after the hospital reviewed a case in which the ob-gyn punctured a patient’s iliac artery during a laparoscopic procedure in 1994.

Dr. Virmani said that that is a known possible complication, according to the documents. Dr. Virmani says his privileges were taken away because of his race and national origin. He was born in India. He came to the United States in 1976 and attended medical school in New Jersey between 1981 and 1985.

He said the hospital treated non-Indian physicians differently and disciplined them less harshly. Dr. Virmani noted that the state medical board did not take action against him and that independent reviewers found that he met the standard of care in the cases the hospital said were problematic.

The hospital defended its action and said that the court shouldn’t open up the peer review records.

A portion of the lawsuit that followed reads:

Dr. Virmani is an obstetrician-gynecologist who was granted medical staff membership and clinical privileges at Presbyterian Hospital and Presbyterian Hospital Matthews (collectively,”Presbyterian”).1 During a laparoscopic procedure in 1994 at Presbyterian Hospital, Virmani inadvertently punctured the iliac artery of a patient, creating a life-threatening emergency…Based on the Committee’s report, Novant suspended Virmani’s privileges, pending a review by Presbyterian’s Medical Board. At Virmani’s request, the Hearing Committee of the Medical Board, which is composed of three physicians, conducted a full hearing on November 21, 1995. Following that hearing, the Medical Board voted to terminate Virmani’s medical staff privileges. Presbyterian’s Board of Trustee’s upheld that decision on January 19, 1996.

Virmani’s medical license was “reprimanded” in this case. Read lawsuit here

In 2005, The North Carolina Medical Board reprimanded Virmani’s license after he was found to have presigned prescription pads and the staff at the clinic was using them for non-patients.

Is Virmani a racist? We will ask that in the same manner he asked this about Presbyterian Hospital, in a protest letter written by abortionist Virmani and entitled: “DID PRESBYTERIAN HOSPITAL DISCRIMINATE? YOU DECIDE!”, the abortionists writes, “Those in control at Presbyterian hospital used their enormous resources and power to squash me like a gnat. They have done so not because of the quality of my care but because of where I came from. They are thriving while I am starving. I hope these people sleep well at night knowing that they have destroyed the professional and personal life of a young physician beyond repair because of his national origin.”


“Ugly Black Babies?” Seriously- you do not want you taxes to go to allowing Ugly Black Babies to be born- I’d call that pretty darn Racist, and I hope You do not Sleep Well for that !

Racism from abortion is no secret – watch the documentary film Maafa21 for more racist connections to abortion.

A Little more about the abortion clinic that hires a RACIST:

The drug’s manufacturer, the assistant director of the Carolina Poison Center and the medical adviser for the Division of Health Service Regulation don’t recommend the oral administration of methotrexate.

Planned Parenthood, which refers women to local abortion providers, does not refer patients to A Preferred Woman’s Health Center and is “not affiliated with that clinic at all,” according to spokeswoman Melissa Reed.

Turner, the clinic owner, also operates clinics with the same name in Raleigh and Augusta, Ga.

Both of those clinics remained open during the Charlotte office’s recent suspension, documents show.
