Kansas abortion clinic closes after pro-life group files complaint

Operation Rescue is reporting that a troubled Kansas City abortion facility, Central Family Medical, also known as Aid For Women, announced on its website that it has ceased operations effective July 26, 2014, stating that its abortionist, Ronald Yeomans, and clinic administrator were “retiring.”

Aid for Women was under pressure from a Kansas State Board of Healing Arts investigation that was based on a complaint filed by Operation Rescue in 2012. That complaint included evidence that Aid For Women pre-checked boxes on official health department Termination of Pregnancy forms to indicate that there was no suspicion of abuse for women obtaining abortions at that facility. This indicated that Aid For Women engaged in the illegal practice of never reporting abuse.

Operation Rescue was informed in a letter from the Board of Healing Arts that the two-year-old case against Aid For Women’s only abortionist, Ronald Yeomans, was still ongoing.

In addition to the pre-checked Termination of Pregnancy reports that concealed possible abuse, the Aid For Women papers contained the following:

• Names of abortion patients.
• Patient ages.
• Gestational ages of their pregnancies.
• Patient phone numbers.
• Photocopies of patient driver’s licenses.
• The date and cost of the abortions.
• Sonograms with information such as patient name, date, and age of the pre-born baby.
• Empty cash envelopes that indicated the names of the abortion patients, date of the abortions, how much cash was placed in the envelopes, and other medical information.
• Communications from the clinic medical director regarding a 2011 clinic licensing law that showed mocking contempt for safety regulations.
• Admission that the only suction mechanism they have to clear airways is a uterine cannula attached to the abortion suction machine that would likely injure the trachea.
• Admission that they would not intubate patients who need it out of fear of lawsuits.
• Admission that the surgical assistants have no licensing whatsoever.

Aside from the mass violation of the privacy rights of women and Federal laws protecting private patient information, the pre-printed KDHE forms were most troubling.

Evidence included several forms. One form was pre-printed with all patient information left blank. One document contained the pre-printed information only on a blank page, and other forms were filled in with Patient Identification numbers and the dates of their abortions. Every form had a pre-printed “No” box marked next to question number 15: “Was report of physical, metal, or emotional abuse or neglect filed pursuant to K.S.A. 38-2223.”

Central Family Medical has predetermined that no woman walking through their doors will have been the victim of abuse,” said Operation Rescue president, Troy Newman. “That places women, especially minor girls, at risk of being handed back to their abusers where they will suffer further harm. That alone is a betrayal of these vulnerable women and deserving of closure and criminal charges.

Covering for abuse and especially child sexual abuse is nothing new to Kansas abortion facilities.

In fact, the Texas pro-life group, Life Dynamics, Inc. has just released a report detailing many criminal cases where girls who were being raped by adult pedophiles took their victims to abortion clinics to hide their crimes. The clinics failed to report the abuse, leaving the victim to more abuse that lasted sometimes for years.

The group details the case of Robert A Estrada:

Estrada began raping his two stepdaughters when they were 11 and 12 years old resulting in five pregnancies and two abortions performed at the Central Women’s Services abortion clinic in Wichita. It is obvious that no one at the facility filed a report since the sexual contact continued for several years afterward. When authorities were made aware of the situation, Estrada was charged with nine felony counts of rape and indecent liberties with a child and sentenced to 90 years in prison. His wife, Patricia Estrada, was given 14 months in jail for knowing about the abuse and not reporting it.
