An abortion clinic in the State of Michigan which lost its license to operate for failing to pass basic health inspections may be given the chance to reopen. Abortionist Jacob Kalo currently operates four abortion clinics in Michigan. On November 21, 2014 the state closed a fifth abortion facility after the state suspended the license of Kalo’s Women’s Center of Southfield for failing to pass several health inspections.

According to pro-life activist Lynn Mills, who has researched Kalo’s record, the abortionist took over the Southfield abortion facility from troubled abortion provider, Abraham Alberto Hodari. Under Hodari the facility was one of only a handful of abortion clinics in the state that held a license. In just over one year of taking over the clinic, Mills said Kalo’s Southfield facility failed to pass several state inspections. As a result, in 2014, the state suspended the license of the Southfield clinic with the goal of a permanent suspension.

An October 7, 2014 letter from the state details the violations found at Kalo’s clinic during one of the inspections:

• No hand hygiene was observed being performed by Dr. Kalo. (Not before or after
ultrasound exam, Not before gloving for procedure or after removing gloves at end of procedure)
• No vaginal prep done. (Betadine was available in OR)
• No inspection of the POC (Productions of Conception) was observed by Dr. Kalo or qualified person assisting the physician prior to disposing of the pathologic specimen by the medical assistant.
• Patient’s belongings-purse, shoes, and clothing stored in an open plastic basket in OR during procedure.
• During procedure the RN was observed going into the medication supply cupboard with contaminated gloves. The RN drew medication from a multidose vial into an unlabeled syringe and gave it to Dr. Kalo who administered it, without the RN showing him the vial for verification of medication provided.
• No hand hygiene observed by Medical Assistant after removing gloves after washing dirty instruments used during the procedure.
• At end of procedure the Medical Assistant used a common bucket (kept in the OR) containing tap water to suck fluid through the bloody used suction aspiration tubing from the procedure. (Staff confirmed the bucket contained no disinfectant, and the bucket was being used for multiple patients.)
• Following the procedure Dr. Kalo was observed handling the bloody used suction tip and tubing in the instrument cleaning sink without gloves or proper PPE.

Despite the serious violations, the state has now decided to allow Kalo’s Southfield abortion clinic to reopen. This news comes to Live Action News, in a document provided by Mills.

According to the September 30, 2015 agreement issued to Kalo from the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the state is dissolving it’s suspension of the abortion clinic based on a few stipulations. First, the order requires that Kalo pay the state $25,000. According to the Stipulations Agreement, the clinic will remain suspended until Kalo complies all applicable requirements of the Public Health Safety Code. The state is also requiring the Southfield abortion facility to pass at least one unannounced inspection. Then, if the clinic reopens it will be placed on probation for at least one year.

Mills told Saynsumthn that what the state is doing by potentially allowing Kalo’s facility to reopen is putting the women of Michigan at risk. Mills also said that in response to the state suspending the license of Kalo’s clinic she filed a complaint with the state’s medical licensing board detailing what the state found in their inspection. And, Mills later discovered from a FOIA request provided by another source that there are two additional allegations filed against the abortionist. The open records reads in part:

    “There are three open allegations on file regarding Jacob Kalo as follows: File No. 135808 was opened December 16, 2014, File No. 136671 was opened March 2, 2015, and File No. 137803 was opened June 2, 2015. The files currently remain open.”

Kalo failed to maintain basic proper hand washing and hygiene requirements, that alone should set off warning flags and alarm everyone,” Mills points out. Although the document says that the state is requiring that Kalo’s other four abortion clinics be inspected, Mills said that since the law requiring abortion clinic inspections and licensing went into effect in 2013, the state has yet to inspect those facilities. To date, Mills said that the Southfield clinic remains closed.

Another abortion clinic to close following pro-life law

REPUBLISHED FROM LIFE DYNAMICS BLOG:

A Dallas abortion clinic is set to close Saturday following a court decision which upheld strict pro-life laws in the state.

HB2 Routh STreet Abortion clinic closing prolife

A representative of the Routh Street abortion facility which has legally killed children “for decades” told a caller to the clinic that the death mill will only be “serving” a few more patients before they close permanently this weekend.

“State law closed us down- they passed a law Wednesday that we have to shut down. It went before the fifth circuit that if you are not a surgical center or doctor with hospital privileges we have to close down,” the woman who identified herself as a medical assistant and pathologist for the clinics said in the phone call.

This week, a federal appeals court upheld Texas law HB2, which requires that abortion facilities comply with the minimum health and safety standards adopted by the State for ambulatory surgical centers, and that abortionists have admitting privileges in a local hospital near an abortion clinic.

Enforcement of the Texas measure resulted in previously closing about half of the 41 clinics that had previously operated in the state.

Reports indicate that after this court decision, Texas will be left with an estimated eight abortion clinics statewide.

The law passed in 2013 after a filibuster attempt by radical pro-abortion Senator Wendy Davis, now dubbed the “Abortion Barbie.”

2016 presidential hopeful and former Texas governor, Rick Perry who signed the law, reacted to the court’s decision on the Megyn Kelly show shortly after it came out:

Calling himself pro-life in all cases, Perry told Megyn Kelly , “I think the real issue for me is this has been settled in the state of Texas.

The Routh Street abortion staffer said the Dallas abortion clinic was performing Sonograms today under the state’s 24 hour waiting period requirement and that the abortion procedures they plan to perform Saturday would be for women who are already scheduled.

When asked if she thought the abortion clinic would reopen she said, “I don’t think the doctor’s going to fight it anymore?

She said they are referring abortion minded women to the National Abortion Federation but has no idea where they are sending them.

Asked how callers to the clinic are taking the news she said, “They are shocked – some are mad – it’s their body.

The abortion staffer, who said she had been employed there for seven years, was also asked what the oldest child they had ever aborted was and she said 17 weeks.

Asked if it bothered her to see an aborted baby, the worker said she was pro-choice and it didn’t bother her that much.

When asked why anyone would have an abortion that late, she said there can be many reasons but that “being irresponsible” happens in “most cases.”

Abortion providers have vowed to take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court. “We will go up to the Supreme Court on an emergency basis,” said Whole Woman’s Health founder Amy Hagstrom Miller, the clinic whose Whole Women’s Health vs. Cole prompted the fifth circuit decision.

The group, Pro-life Dallas is cheering the closure of Routh Street writing in an e-mail, “, we received reports that at long last, after decades of killing, the Routh Street abortion facility’s final day to perform abortions is this Saturday (tomorrow). It is anticipated that this facility will soon close*, bringing the total number of abortion facilities in Dallas down to 2 (from a high of 13 in 1990!). ”

As a result of criminal charges against an abortion doctor, an abortion clinic in Indiana has clinic has reportedly closed it’s doors.

According to reports, Friendship Family Planning abortion clinic in Gary closed May 27.

The clinic had previously been cited for deficiencies.

Ken Severson, spokesman for the Indiana Department of Health stated that the abortion clinic’s closure came as the abortion doctor, Ulrich Klopfer, was facing charges of failing to timely file a report related to an abortion he performed on a 13-year-old girl in 2012.

IND Law Klopfer Child Pred

As an abortion doctor, Klopfer was required to report such abortions, because of statutory rape laws in Indiana.

In 2014, after the criminal complaint became public, Klopfer was summonsed to appear before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board to explain his actions.

But, they allowed him to keep his medical license pending the state’s investigation.

Criminal Charges Klopfer Jan 2014

The unreported abortion was brought to the attention of authorities by Lake County Right to Life in December of 2013.

Unreported abortions on minor girls have also been reported in a complaint filed by representatives of Indiana Right to Life and Allen County Right to Life.

The documents, filed by members of Allen County Right, stated that Klopfer performed an abortion on another 13-year-old in Allen County at the now closed Ft. Wayne Woman’s Health Organization on February 7, 2013 and failed to report that abortion as required by state law as well.

The age of that patient surfaced as Allen County Right to Life Executive Director, Cathie Humbarger, reviewed publicly available terminated pregnancy reports. The pregnancy report, filed with the State Department of Health, appears to confirm the allegation. (Read Allen County RTL Report here)

The criminal charges in Lake County cite Klopfer for failing to timely file a public report about the abortion he performed on a 13 year old child at the Friendship Family Planning abortion Clinic in Gary, In. in September of 2012.

The affidavit states that the report wasn’t sent to the Indiana Department of Health until January of 2013.

Klopfer Probable Cause Criminal

The news led to Klopfer’s back up physician terminating his status with the abortionist. Indiana requires every abortion doctor in the state to have admitting privileges to a local hospital or an agreement with a doctor who does.

Dr--Ulrich--George--Klopfer

Indiana Right to Life recently issued a news release stating that abortionist Klopfer has “surrendered” his license for the Gary clinic:

    Klopfer has surrendered his Gary, Ind. abortion license.

    Klopfer’s surrender follows the release of an alarming report by the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) showing deplorable conditions and safety hazards at his Gary facility.

    The surrender also comes just prior to Klopfer’s scheduled hearing on June 25 before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, where the Board could choose to remove his medical license.

    Klofper, who lives in Illinois, still has his Fort Wayne and South Bend abortion sites licensed with the state, despite only doing abortions in South Bend.

Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, points out that although they do not know the circumstances of these young girl’s pregnancies, mandatory reporting statutes which require healthcare workers to report reasonable suspicions of child sexual abuse to the authorities are being ignored inside American abortion, Planned Parenthood and family planning centers.

For several years now, Life Dynamics has documented the failure of abortion clinics to report statutory rape.

According to Mark Crutcher, founder of Life Dynamics, “When we began to investigate we found it was even worse than we thought it was. Initially we thought perhaps the abortion clinics were only reporting half of the incidents, but instead we found that they were reporting hardly any of them.”

Crutcher recently published a report of actual cases where clinics did not report suspected child abuse, often leading to repeated rape and assaults on the victims.

According to Indiana Right to Life, the license surrender also comes just prior to Klopfer’s scheduled hearing on June 25 before the Indiana Medical Licensing Board, where the Board could choose to remove his medical license.

Pro-Life Leaders Endorse Operation Rescue’s “Abortion Free”

Police in Rockford, Illinois object to their new offices being located at a now closed abortion clinic because of what the building represents.

Police refuse to work in old ab clinic

According to WIFR, some Rockford Police officers are refusing to work in the former death mill which city leaders are considering using as a police station.

A number of people have an objection to the Turner School building because of what it represents and they have some serious moral objections to being in that building,” PBPA Union President Terry Peterson, said.

Peterson says he’s heard from more than a dozen officers who say they won’t work in that building because it used to be an abortion clinic.

Peterson, who retired this year, added, “I personally would never work out of that building. There’s a stigma. It’s the idea of what took place in there.”

More than a dozen police officers have issued an objection to the station locating inside the former abortion clinic.

The Northern Illinois Women’s Center abortion clinic had been aborting unborn babies in Rockford for nearly 40 years closed permanently in early 2012, after years of prayer and protest outside the clinic.

The Rockford abortion clinic was often cited for mocking Christians and flaunting the killing of children.

The national pro-life TV show, Life Talk, discusses some of the bizarre things that went on at that abortion clinic:

The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative, which protested the abortion clinic for years issued a statement that said that they originally were in favor of turning the old Rockford abortion mill building into a community police station.

But, “That was before we learned dozens of Rockford police officers have moral and religious objections to working in a building that was used to kill thousands of children.We gladly stand with the dozens of police officers in Rockford who object to being asked to work inside a building that was used to kill innocent babies and we thank these good officers for reminding us all of the horrors that took place in that building.

Upon further reflection, it is absolutely unjust to expect good men and women like these Rockford police officers to go to work everyday in building that was a slaughter house for babies,” they wrote on their blog.

Planned Parenthood Fined for Health and Safety Violations – actions taken against more Abortion clinics

Ohio Right to Life has issued this release:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Today, Ohio Right to Life obtained documentation of enforcement actions against three abortion facilities by the Ohio Department of Health. Among them is a $25,000 fine issued to Planned Parenthood of Bedford Heights due to severe violations of health and safety standards. Such violations include the facility’s failure to adhere to infection control policies, including exposed urine samples. Other health inspector discoveries include:

no experienced director of nursing on staff
improper storage of eight containers of human tissue
3-month overdue follow-up documentation for hospitalized abortion patient with perforated uterus
incomplete documentation for abortion patient who was hospitalized for bleeding
use of expired and undocumented chemicals and equipment used on surgical suction hoses

Further enforcement actions by the health department were taken against Northeast Ohio Women’s Center, which was denied a license to practice surgical abortions due to multiple health and safety violations, including failure to properly train staff, lack of a director of nursing, and expired medications and pregnancy tests.

“We’re deeply concerned, though admittedly unsurprised, that multiple abortion facilities are jeopardizing the lives and health of women,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “The real war on women is being waged everyday in these unsafe and unsanitary abortion mills. These reports shock the conscience and reaffirm our resolve to protect life from Ohio’s abortion industry.”

This week, ODH also issued an administrative order to close the last remaining abortion facility in Toledo. Capital Care Network of Toledo (CCN) was unable to secure a transfer agreement with any Toledo-area hospital which caused health officials to begin the closure process last year. CCN attempted to enter into a transfer agreement with an out-of-state hospital at the University of Michigan. Because the hospital is located 52 miles away from CCN, the Department of Health ruled that it does not meet health and safety standards.

Capital Care Network of Toledo

“Without Capital Care Network, life in Toledo will be safer for women and children” said Gonidakis. “This week, our government assured all of us that women’s health and patient safety is priority number one. It is deeply troubling that some people are advocating for this illegal operation to remain open, putting women’s lives at risk.”

Another child killing center in Texas has closed as a result of the new abortion law which took effect last year.

wHOLE Womens Health Austin

On their blog page, abortion clinic chain Whole Woman’s Health announced the closure of their Austin center.

The announcement reads:

With extremely heavy hearts, we’re announcing today that Whole Woman’s Health of Austin is closing its doors days before our trial against House Bill 2 begins.

Austin was our flagship clinic, serving the community of Central Texas with the best abortion care available to women for over ten years. House Bill 2, which passed last summer, has forced us into yet another closure, this time because we’re unable to meet the standards of an ambulatory surgical center at this location.

In October the Beaumont Whole Woman’s abortion centers was inspected and what authorities found was abysmal.

According to a recent state inspection report, Whole Woman’s failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that Convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

WWH McAllen Website stops ab

In March of 2011, Operation Rescue documented widespread abortion abuses at a dozen Texas abortion clinics. Among the worst offenders was Whole Women’s Health. The McAllen office discoveries were particularly disturbing. Dumped in the trash were the bloody refuse of several abortions along with the names of patients and other private information.

Among the discoveries at several WWH clinics, Patient logs and other records were discovered on Whole Women’s Health forms and the bloody remains of abortions came in bags with other documents bearing Whole Women’s Health’s name. Operation Rescue has made examples of this evidence public.

In November, Life Dynamics, a national pro-life group in Denton, Texas sent fliers to every hospital warning them the abortion lobby was going to attempt to get privileges:

Hospital Letter Texas

According to the Dallas Morning News, the Austin abortion facility is the 17th clinic to close in Texas since November when a new law went into effect requiring doctors performing abortions to have admitting privileges at hospitals within 30 miles of the clinics. The same law will require clinics to meet the same strict structural standards required of ambulatory surgical centers by September of this year. Fourteen of the 20 clinics still operating do not meet those standards.
