Child porn, harassment, and rape: Is Planned Parenthood a haven for sex offenders?

Planned Parenthood’s political organizer president Cecile Richards recently expressed concern about accusations brought by women claiming to have been sexually harassed by men in power. While these accusations and admissions are greatly concerning, it seems Richards has overlooked her own back yard, so to speak. Plenty of Planned Parenthood employees have had their own share of troubles in this arena.

CALIFORNIA

Jorge Martin-Santana

According to Sacramento Superior Court records, Jorge Humberto Martin Santana was arrested in 2013 and charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery, under criminal code PC 243.4(E)(1), which reads in part:A California jury found a Planned Parenthood medical assistant guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery after inappropriately touching a patient during the course of his duties at Planned Parenthood.

Any person who touches an intimate part of another person, if the touching is against the will of the person touched, and is for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery…

In February of 2015, Martin-Santana pleaded “not guilty,” but on April 9, 2015, he was sentenced to 140 days in a sheriff’s work project and three years of probation.

Timothy Liveright Planned Parenthood abortionist accused of sexual harassment

In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

“I have noted Dr. Liveright inappropriately look up and down patients as well as staff members in a sexual kind of way. He actually stands back with a grin and slowly directs his eyes up and down a patient’s body.”In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

Jayne resigned from Planned Parenthood after her letters of complaint to management were ignored. The nurse also said she observed Liveright “acting condescending to African American patients by implying they were ignorant,” among other charges.

Liveright worked for several Planned Parenthood locations.

A Delaware Medical Licensure complaint filed against Liveright claims Planned Parenthood reprimanded him for “unprofessional, disrespectful, and inappropriate” conduct, including “yelling, screaming, and cursing” in front of employees and patients and “sexual harassment of female employees.”

According to USA Today, Liveright played an abortionist in the 2010 Hollywood movie, “Blue Valentine“:

In 2013, media reported that Liveright surrendered his license to practice medicine in Delaware, but a November 2017 query reveals that Liveright’s Pennsylvania license is still active.

FLORIDA

In July 2008, the Miami Herald reported that Planned Parenthood’s national office cut ties with several Florida centers after accusations of “terrible mismanagement and possibly fraud,” including alleged sexual harassment against a former CEO:

Miami Herald Planned Parenthood cuts ties with 5 clinics, sexual harassment

The Herald stated:

The disaffiliation allowed the national organization to wash its hands of the local chapter once known as Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

The chapter is dealing with many problems, including harassment complaints and possible misuse of nearly $450,000 — slightly less than they received in public funding in 2005.

ILLINOIS

Several female patients claimed Illinois Planned Parenthood physician, Carl E. Burpo, “engaged in improper conduct during a gynecological examination” at Burpo’s office and at Planned Parenthood, where he worked part-time. He was eventually indicted on 21 counts of sexual misconduct.

One complaint alleged that Burpo fondled patients’ “breasts and in some cases made other sexual advances toward seven patients in 1990 and 1991 while examining them.”

A 1993 report states that Burpo was suspended from practicing at Planned Parenthood. A jury acquitted him in two of the cases but in February 1995, the Illinois Supreme Court reinstated eight of the criminal sexual assault charges.

His medical license was suspended in 1995.

MASSACHUSETTS

Roger Ian Hardy

Former Planned Parenthood abortionist Roger Ian Hardy was forced to surrender his Massachusetts medical license in January 2014, amid allegations that he sexually molested patients during fertility treatments at Fertility Centers of New England.

Hardy had previously committed abortions for Planned Parenthood facilities in Massachusetts and California.Former Planned Parenthood abortionist Roger Ian Hardy was forced to surrender his Massachusetts medical license in January 2014, amid allegations that he sexually molested patients during fertility treatments at Fertility Centers of New England.

Operation Rescue notes, “Why Hardy eventually left Planned Parenthood is unknown, but a Boston Globe article published on May 1, 2014, indicates that Hardy’s abhorrent sexual misconduct stretched back as far as 20 years. Hardy was working for Planned Parenthood during that time, in which Planned Parenthood abortion patients were likely exposed to molestation by Hardy as well.”

MINNESOTA

In 1987, the Minnesota Board of Medical Examiners revoked the license of Hideo D. Mori for alleged sexual improprieties involving 10 patients over 23 years in Grand Meadow. A report states that administrative law judge Allan W. Klein found Mori had “inappropriately massaged some of his patients, telling one of them… that he needed to stimulate her genital area to fit her properly for a diaphragm.”

Klein wrote that Mori claimed to have romantic feelings toward the patient, caressing her body and kissing her to make her sexually aroused, understanding “that it was not medically indicated.”

NEW YORK

The NY State Department of Health accused Planned Parenthood of Rochester and Monroe County physician, Joseph L. Lizardi, of sexual misconduct, including sexually stimulating one patient and telling another she was pretty while touching her breasts.

TEXAS

Planned Parenthood CEO arrested for indecent exposure

1. In 2012, Tony Ray Thornton (pictured right), the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Lubbock, was arrested for exposing his genitals to a 43-year-old male in a Texas park.

Soon after, Thornton apologized and resigned from Planned Parenthood.1. In 2012, Tony Ray Thornton (pictured right), the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Lubbock, was arrested for exposing his genitals to a 43-year-old male in a Texas park.

“I deeply regret creating a situation in my personal life that potentially creates a distraction from these goals, and I apologize to the people in the Lubbock community for the incident,” Thornton stated. “I will work with my attorney through the appropriate court process to correct any misinformation and take responsibility for errors.”

According to the county clerk, the charges in Thornton’s case #2012-469-378 were dismissed on February 28, 2013, in the “interest of justice.”

In 2010, Thornton helped Planned Parenthood purchase a closed facility — renamed Planned Parenthood Women’s Health Center, Inc. — after the owners retired.

2. In 2005, Planned Parenthood employee Aymara Castro said Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas subjected her to “unlawful sexual harassment, and to disparate terms, conditions and privileges of employment because of her sex.” She won her claim, filed with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which found Planned Parenthood had “failed to take corrective action to stop the harassment and retaliated against her for engaging in protected activity.”

Kabacy was not practicing at Planned Parenthood at the time of his December 2006 arrest. According to the US Attorney’s office:

Kabacy admitted in his plea agreement that he knowingly possessed more than 8,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Kabacy also admits to possessing videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, both on his computer and on 36 compact disks. Some of the images depict children under the age of 12. Kabacy admitted that he communicated with other people over the Internet, expressing his interest in having sex with minors and exchanging more than 40 images of child pornography with these other people over the Internet.

Kabacy’s OregonWashington State and California medical licenses were later revoked.

On July 13, 2001, the Board suspended Attig’s license but issued a stay allowing him to continue to practice on a probationary term.

Many additional troubling actions by Planned Parenthood have been documented, including a failure to report child sexual abuse. Reports also show that victims of sex trafficking are sometimes taken to Planned Parenthood centers for forced abortions by their pimps.

Millionaire Abortionist Merle Hoffman on her own abortion: ‘For one night, I am a mother’

Posted in Abortion Clinics, Abortionist, Abortionist Rich with tags , , , , , , on August 22, 2017 by saynsumthn

Merle Hoffman Choices Abortion

An article published by a New York media outlet has indicated that a long standing abortion facility owner netted ten million dollars last year. Crain’s New York Business featured abortion facility operator Merle Hoffman, president of Choices Women’s Medical Center in New York. Hoffman’s facility commits abortions up to 24 weeks. A bio about Hoffman reveals that her 2016 revenue was “about $10 million.” A deeper look at Hoffman’s past reveals how tens of thousands of abortions — and her own abortion years ago — have affected her.

In the video below, former abortionist Dr. Anthony Levatino describes the most common abortion committed in the U.S. from 13-24 weeks.

Abortion — Taking Children’s Lives — for Profit

Making a large profit from abortion is not new, however. Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest tax-funded abortion chain, is known for having abortion “quotas” and throwing pizza parties after its staff commits extra abortions beyond the required number, thus raking in more money for the facility.

Recently analyzed data from Planned Parenthood (analysis conducted by American Life League, or ALL) reveals that the average salary of a CEO at one of Planned Parenthood’s 56 affiliates rose 22 percent in the last two years. The top twelve employees at the mothership, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, have collectively seen their average salaries go up 13 percent in two years.

ALL found that with an average income of $237,999, these Planned Parenthood CEOs are in the top five percent of all workers in the United States. The group noted that Planned Parenthood’s national spokesperson and president, Cecile Richards, has seen her income explode by a whopping 62 percent, making close to a million dollars a year ($957,952) at the so-called non-profit. Nearly 41% of Planned Parenthood’s budget came from taxpayers in 2015, according to the abortion chain’s own 2015-2016 annual report.

While Planned Parenthood tries to weasel its way out of appearing like the well-funded and well-paying abortion chain it is, Merle Hoffman is honest. Even though it is relatively taboo for anyone in the abortion industry to admit that killing babies is profitable, Hoffman acknowledges that she makes millions.

In a book she published years ago called “Intimate Wars,” Hoffman admitted she was “making money off the movement” and explained that making money from abortion “could be said of every abortion provider.”

In fact, as Hoffman put it, “I was quite pleasantly surprised when I made my first million dollars.”

“Choices” for Women

A 2012 article in The Feminist Press described how Hoffman’s facility, Choices, began, nearly 41 years ago.

The article details how Hoffman teamed up with Dr. Martin Gold to open the Choices abortion facility, writing:

As the cofounder of the Health Insurance Plan of Greater New York (HIP), the first not-for-profit health maintenance organization (HMO) on the east coast, Gold and a colleague approached HIP’s board of directors and proposed to offer abortion services for their subscribers…. A year later, in 1971, Flushing Women’s Medical Center – later renamed Choices Women’s Medical Center – opened its doors.

Although Hoffman opened her first facility in the 1970’s just after New York legalized abortion, Choices shows it was licensed with the state as a corporation in 1985.

In the beginning stages, Hoffman said the abortion facility saw six or seven patients and charged $77.00 per procedure. In 2011, Hoffman admitted to Forbes that her clinic had performed “almost 20,000 abortions a year….” “Now,” she added, “we see about 10,000.”

Hoffman appears to enjoy promoting herself and her so-called accomplishments within the abortion movement on a blog operated in her name. She says she became politically active after passage of the Hyde Amendment, which prohibited most federal tax dollars from funding abortions.

As a result of Hyde, Merle Hoffman began publicly speaking out in favor of abortion.

Co-Founder of the National Abortion Federation

In 1977, Hoffman bragged that she co-founded the National Abortion Federation (NAF), formerly known as the National Abortion Council (NAC). She detailed the events in “Intimate Wars,” reminiscing about a 1976 invitation from the National Association of Abortion Facilities (NNAF) to attend a national meeting of providers.

Hoffman writes that within a few months of attending that meeting, she was nominated NNAF’s vice president.

She credits her marketing style of promoting herself as an advocate for women, rather than as someone who does abortions as appealing to some NNAF members. After all, marketing is all in how one presents herself and her business, regardless of what one actually does.

In fact, Hoffman claims she received so much support that instead of VP, she threw her hat into a run for NNAF president, and to her surprise, she won. Within a few months, Hoffman claims, the NAC joined forces with NNAF to become the National Abortion Federation.

“Women Did Know the Truth”

Merle Hoffman has been criticized for openly admitting the humanity of the preborn child.

In “Intimate Wars,” she described the pro-choice movement of that day as choosing to “depersonalize the fetus,” claiming that women knew exactly what abortion was.

This admission that women were very much aware of what they were doing when paying for their abortion was the impetus for controversy because Hoffman contradicted the unscientific claims of the day that the fetus was a “blob of tissue,” a “parasite,” and not human. As the owner of her own abortion facility, Hoffman knew otherwise, and it conflicted her. However, she still inaccurately stated that the life inside the womb, while human, was merely “potential.”

She wrote:

But women did know the truth, just as I knew it, deep down, when I allowed myself to recognize it…. At times this really would move me profoundly as I sat opposite the women I counseled prior to their abortions, acutely aware of the potential lives growing inside them that would soon cease to exist. I began to think critically, to come to terms with what was going on. Each time I did that I came out of the process more committed than before. I had no conception, either religious or philosophical that “life was sacred.”

If the women going to Hoffman were aware that she does not believe life is sacred — i.e., that human life inherently has value — perhaps they would be less likely to trust her with their own lives.

“Abortion Stops a Beating Heart”

Hoffman has been a controversial figure in the abortion movement for years, as Salon pointed out in 2012:

Interestingly, although the standard pro-choice line is essentially to let the woman define the embryo or fetus for herself, Hoffman has a more controversial stance: “In the beginning they were calling it a baby. We were saying it was only blood and tissue. Let’s agree this is a life form, a potential life; you’re terminating it. You don’t have to argue that abortion stops a beating heart. It does.” She adds, “I can’t say it’s just like an appendectomy. It isn’t. It’s a very powerful and loaded decision.”

Live Action News’  previously documented Merle Hoffman’s honest observations about witnessing her first few abortions:

What I saw a running through those vacuum tubes when I first started my work was only blood and tissue, unformed and messy. It was easy to imagine the fetus as a bunch of cells that one could define as one wished.

But even in the beginning I had an inkling that this mentality was the easy way out, that it didn’t go far enough to do justice to the experience of abortion.

In its 2012 interview with Hoffman, Forbes referred to the abortion clinic operator as a “Millionaire Abortionist” and a “capitalist,” and asked Hoffman why she was receiving criticism from other feminists for making a profit performing abortions:

There are many feminists who feel–and not all, but many—that a real feminist has to be a socialist. I have been accused of “making money off of the movement.”

… I’m not apologetic that I have an entrepreneurial spirit. I have created Choices and have made a profit. …

And people may say “abortion is your business,” but I say no. Women’s lives are my business. If I do well, like any business, it’s because more people want to come to me.

In the video below, Merle Hoffman claims that her power and money are simply the result of the fact that so many “people wanted to use my services, so I see no problem with that at all.” She disagrees with abortionists and facility owners who want to downplay the money that goes hand-in-hand with ending the lives of children: “It’s always this apologetic, ‘I don’t deserve the money,’ ‘I don’t deserve the power.’”

Exactly what does Hoffman do with all that money and power?

According to “Intimate Wars”:

Money has given me the power to support political campaigns and donate to worthy causes. In the nineties I spent half a million dollars every year publishing On the Issues and started a 501(c)3 called the Diana Foundation so that I could donate to feminist groups and individual radicals that had no access to institutional funds. I donated to the campaigns of pro-choice politicians like Schumer and Hevesi, and of course paid for political actions put on by the PCC.

Hoffman claimed that Senator Schumer was a “very strong supporter of mine.”

The Millionaire Has an Abortion:

Merle Hoffman once admitted in a speech before the Abortion Care Network that the act of abortion “is about power” where women were “exercising the right of fetal existence.”

Yet, of her own abortion, Hoffman explained how she referred to her baby as “female” with whom she had a “shared connection.” In a reading from her book, Hoffman admitted that she wrote in her diary, “For one night, I am a mother,” adding that her abortion gave her both “relief and sadness.”

She described to attendees at the Abortion Care Network conference how she felt as she made the decision, recounting holding her stomach and saying, “Sorry little one, it’s just not time.”

Maryland authorities slow to act against “Gosnell-like” abortion doctor

It’s a story similar to one we’ve heard before: an abortionist currently “under review” by the state continues to commit abortions while the medical board and abortion lobby appear undisturbed.

Recall the case of Kermit Gosnell, who ran what has been dubbed an abortion “house of horrors” in Philadelphia for years, while, despite several complaints, authorities turned a blind eye to his actions.

Now, the pro-life group Operation Rescue has reported that Harold O. Alexander, charged by the Maryland Board of Medicine in 2015 for conducting surgical abortions at an unlicensed facility, has been caught allegedly doing it again – and in response, the medical board intends to keep the complaint “on file.”

Unearthed audio has Senator telling abortion owner not to perjure herself regarding accusations of fetal harvesting

Posted in Aborted Babies, Aborted Baby Trash, Abortion Clinics, Abortionist, Abortionist dumps fetuses, Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

A leaked tape recorded by the Center for Medical Progress shows a Michigan abortion owner admitting that she once talked to “researchers” during her quest to find ways to dispose of the bodies of the babies her clinic aborted. Renee Chelian who operates the abortion clinic chain, Northland Family Planning Center, which performs abortions up to 24 weeks has previously denied under oath that her facility is involved in the harvesting of aborted babies.

Renee Chelian (Image link here)

In a secretly recorded speech given by Chelian before a Michigan National Abortion Federation member session Chelian jokes about how difficult it has been to expose of fetal tissue, laughingly suggesting to her audience that the disposal problem belongs to the women who pay her to abort their babies. (note, Chelian’s conversation begins at the end of one video and the beginning of another video.)

(Video 1 begin ) “We were really tempted to give the fetus back,” Chelian is heard saying in the audio.

(Video 2 begin at very beginning) “We can do that. Um, we thought, we’ll give it to everybody in a gift bag – they can take it home, figure out what to do with it. It’s their pregnancy and why is this our problem?”

Below is video of what the abortion owner told the NAF audience next:

At approximately 3:49 into the video above you can hear Chelian say, I talked to the researchers and they said we want your tissue, we don’t want all of your tissue.”

She later states (9:27 ) , “What ever you’re doing now there’s not a research company that will take all of our fetal tissue because they don’t want it all. And…you know this is an issue we are going to have to grapple with.”

Additional comments in the video are transcribed here:

(Begin 2:05)

    “So in coalition, we started working with hospitals who didn’t want to be seen with us. We met them in like Denny’s restaurant, there’s not even many of those left…We talked about you know what are you guys going to do. They were terrified of a public relations nightmare. That hospital actually had big freezers with breasts and kneecaps and gallbladders and abortions or miscarriages. Um and they put all their jars together, at some point. and they go to Stericycle unless the hospital happens to have their incinerator which is rarer and rarer. The guy from Stericycle was quick to point that out to me.

    “Um…Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. Um, and nobody but me. I’m just saying. There was a point when Stericycle fired us that I had 5 months worth of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in. It was all I thought about, was fetal tissue. Like, I was so consumed with fetal tissue, I was ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire. And I was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped. Or, you know, how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody was going to see me…I mean it was the worst, I dreamed about how to dispose of fetal tissue. And the garbage disposal was an option…”

    “There was a point where I actually hired someone from another clinic to come in and take 20 bottles and put it my garbage disposal. And I had to fess up to my staff that I did the thing I’ve been criticizing what all these other clinics are doing but I didn’t know what else to do. I was so desperate, that the antis found a way to close us.”

Renee Chelian Thumb

However, in recorded testimony provided by pro-life activist Lynn Mills, Chelian once called a Michigan Senator a liar after he insinuated her clinic might be involved in fetal tissue harvesting. Chelian appeared before the State Senate Committee in 2012 to oppose any abortion restrictions in the state. Michigan Senator Rick Jones then grilled the clinic owner over whether there was a lab that would harvest fetal parts at her abortion clinic. He said he was contacted by a witness who told him the abortion clinic had attempted to convince her to give an “anatomical donation.”

Have you ever suggested to patients or anybody in your office, your clinics suggest to patients that they could have a late-term abortion and then make an anatomical donation of part of the aborted baby?” Senator Jones asked Chelian.

Chelian then pauses before she finally responds by saying, “No.”

Senator Jones then reminds Chelian she could perjure herself if she is not being truthful, stating, I’d ask you not to perjure yourself. There are witnesses.”

Chelian continues to deny the charges brought up by Senator Jones several more times.

At the time of her testimony, MLive.com reported the exchange this way:

    Jones and Renee Chelian of Northland Family Planning Centers in southeast Michigan got into a testy exchange. Jones asked if the clinic had ever suggested to patients that they could have a “late-term abortion” and then make an “anatomical donation.” Jones asked if the clinic allowed a lab to “harvest parts.” Chelian said “no” in both cases and called Jones a “liar.”

Let’s recap – Chilean says this in CMP’s undercover sting:

    I talked to the researchers and they said we want your tissue, we don’t want all of your tissue.”

And denied being involved in fetal research before the Senate panel in 2012.

This would not be the first time an abortion worker has denied that they took part in fetal harvesting in the past,” says Mills.

However, while Chelian has admitted that her clinics have problems disposing of all the “fetal tissue” i.e. remains of human preborn children, and that she has talked to researchers, she has denied that her abortion chain has had any involvement in fetal tissue harvesting. While we have no way to know whether all or some of Chilean’s admissions are true or not, we do know that these undercover videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress are exposing the attitude and in some cases horrific actions of the abortion industry.

Listen to the Audio from the 2012 exchange between Chelian and Senator Jones and read a portion of their exchange transcribed below:

Chelian: Well, first of all, I find you rather insulting.
Jones: Isn’t it true that you have a private lab to show up at your clinic to harvest parts?
Chelian: No! And sir, you are a liar!
Jones: No, I’m simply relating what witnesses have brought in.
Chelian: Well, you know, that is part of the problem with this bill is once again.
You have never taken the time to find out the facts because you are 100% wrong. I hope you are embarrassed and you’ll take that back to whoever gave you that information.
Jones: Well, I understand that you do routine gynecological tests for people 39 years old and younger but if they’re older than that, you won’t provide them; yet you will provide abortions.
Chelian: We provide routine gynecological care for the healthy younger population because we’re not specialists in menopause. And we don’t pretend to be specialists in something we’re not. Many doctors offices are specialists in menopausal care and generally after 39, it’s pre-menopausal and then going into postmenopausal care. That doesn’t have anything to do with the good gynecology care that we offer.
Jones: So you deny having LabCore and other groups come to your clinics to collect parts?
Chelian: We use LabCore when we want and any other lab when we suspect an ectopic pregnancy or a molar pregnancy. I’m not sure since you’re not a medical person that you know what that is and I would be happy to tell you if you would like to know. But those are medical problems that pathologists need to look at abortion tissue for. That is not what you suggested. That is in the continuum of good medical care.
Jones: Well, isn’t it true that they come when the babies are 14 to 24 weeks
Chelian: It is true that they come when we call them.
Jones: On Thursdays and Saturdays.
Chelian: You know, actually we do abortions more days than that. So you don’t have that right, either. They come…
Jones: Just the late-term ones.
Chelian: No, and actually we don’t really suspect an ectopic pregnancy in a late-term abortion. You really suspect an ectopic pregnancy when someone is early. Usually under 8 or 9 weeks and the patient, you, the patient, the amount of tissue that you obtain may be inconsistent with what you believe is the correct number of weeks and then we do a tissue float. Then we send it out to a lab and depending on what we find from the tissue float and beta which also goes out to a lab, you know it’s a blood test to measure hcg level. We can advise the patient to seek immediate care in a hospital.

Renee CHelian Partial Birth Abortion

Chelian is a former head of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers. She was once called to task after her NCAP group’s executive director admitted that he intentionally misled the media about the numbers of partial birth abortions performed on healthy women. Ron Fitzsimmons, a spokesperson for NCAPS later said that he “lied through my teeth” when he stated that the late term abortion procedure was rarely performed only on women whose lives were in danger or in the case of the health of the preborn child. “It made me physically ill,” Fitzsimmons said.

‘The abortion-rights folks know it, the anti-abortion folks know it, and so, probably, does everyone else,” he said in an article in the Medical News, an American Medical Association publication.

An abortion clinic where a women was removed by ambulance wrapped like a mummy has bragged they raised $44,000 in a bowl-a-thon to continue their horrific business.

Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio posted this to their Facebook page today, “This morning, our hearts are full… While the final tally is still being counted, we know that our bowl-a-thon raised over $44,000 for abortion access! Thanks to all who bowled, donated, and supported us in this event!”

They were congratulated on Twitter by a second abortion rights group, the Abortion care Network.

No mention was made of the woman injured just days before nor the death of Lakisha Wilson a year ago:

The event was part of a national effort to raise funds to kill preborn children in the womb nation wide.

Perhaps they use will all that money for the women they injure during abortions!

But, I doubt that !!!

    Just days ago, Operation Rescue reported that for the second time since the death of Lakisha Wilson last year, abortionist Lisa Perriera has sent yet another patient to the emergency room.

    An ambulance arrived at Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, shortly before 2:20 pm on Friday, April 24, 2015. At 2:30 p.m., pro-life activist Fred Sokol filmed a woman on a gurney, “wrapped like a mummy,” in his words. She was completely covered in pink and purple blankets as she was wheeled out of Preterm and loaded into an awaiting ambulance.

    There appeared to be no visible IV bag or any other sign of ongoing medical treatment.

    The ambulance then sat parked in front of Preterm for an additional 15 minutes before leaving for a hospital presumed to be Case Medical Center, where Perriera holds admitting privileges. Her current condition — or even if she survived — remains unknown.

    Pastor Dale Henkel, who is a regular on the sidewalks outside Preterm praying and offering help to abortion-bound women, confirmed to Operation Rescue that Perriera was the abortionist on duty at the abortion facility on the day of the incident.

According to Operation Rescue, Perriera was responsible for the botched second trimester abortion that killed Lakisha Wilson on March 21, 2014, but was never held accountable by the Ohio Department of Health or the Medical Board, despite evidence that laws were violated. Calls for a criminal investigation have also fallen on deaf ears.

“Abortion? yeah – we do that” says ad by “spa-like” abortion clinic

Carafem is a a franchise of clinics belonging to the 501c3 non-profit FemHealth USA.

We utilize research and technology to provide abortion services that offer greater convenience, enhanced medical professionalism, and personalized comfort,” they state online.

FemHealth’s board members include the following:

    Dr. Sara Newmann : ObGyn and assistant clinical professor at UCSF Medical Center
    Phil Harvey : Founder of DKT International and Population Services International
    Christopher Purdy : President of FemHealth USA
    Melissa Grant : Vice President of Health Services of FemHealth USA
    Julie Stewart: Founder of FAMM
    Nicole Gray: US Country Director at Marie Stopes International

But, behind all the hype, what they really are is an abortion clinic located just outside of the District in Montgomery County, Maryland, where they “specialize in first trimester abortions (up to 10 weeks) with the abortion pill” for $400.00 a pop.

Chris Purdy, the president & CEO of Carafem, told The Huffington Post that he came up with the idea for the clinic around 18 months ago where he worked with Melissa S. Grant, a former Planned Parenthood director who is now Carafem’s vice president of health services to provide early-term abortion and make the experience less clinical.

According to their financial statement, Carafem received a substantial portion of its revenue from DKT International whose president Christopher Purdy is FemHealth USA Inc.’s Executive Director and chairman of its Board of Directors.

The Washington Post describedthe abortion clinic as “Spa-like”

    At Carafem, staff members plan to greet clients with warm teas, comfortable robes and a matter-of-fact attitude.

    “We don’t want to talk in hushed tones,” said Carafem President Christopher Purdy. “We use the A-word.”

To draw in more clients, the abortion clinic has produced some new abortion ads:

And this one: Abortion Yeah – we do that !

This nonchalant attitude toward child killing is shameful. You can publish all the cutesy videos you want and promote the most luxurious atmosphere there is – but in the end- what you are doing remains the same.

One blogger’s title summed it up, “New Abortion Spa: Murder Your Child in Luxury.”
