Operation Rescue reports that one Alabama abortionist has been jailed 23 times since last year !

Abortionist Raymond Lopez, from Huntsville, Alabama, checked in to the Madison County Jail for 23 consecutive weekends between November 2013, and April 2014, serving time on a “domestic relations” case.

In Alabama, “domestic relations” violations can range from non-payment of alimony to violation of a protection order.

Since 1996, Lopez has been the subject of 14 court cases, including two criminal cases filed in 1998 and 2008.

The abortion clinic where Lopez works, the Alabama Women’s Center for Reproductive Alternatives (AWCRA), has been cited for serious health code violations at least seven times between 2001 and 2013, with multiple violations for each deficiency report filed.

Alabaam Womens Abortion Clinic Raymond Lopez

Most recently, a survey of AWCRA was conducted on January 8-9, 2013, where inspectors found unsanitary conditions, expired drugs, and an uncalibrated ultrasound machine. AWCRA failed to clean medical equipment – including procedure tables – between patients. One abortionist failed to provide women with an opportunity to view an ultrasound of their babies prior to an abortion, as required by law.

Other violations dating back years included:

• Staff giving injections without wearing gloves.
• More expired drugs.
• Failure to properly prepare IV medications in accordance with medical standards. (Multiple occurrences.)
• Improper labeling and storage of pre-drawn drug syringes. (Multiple occurrences.)
• Administration of controlled substances without specific doctor’s orders.
• Failure to implement a required Quality Improvement Program.
• No documentation that three abortionists had the required training and experience to conduct abortions.
• Failure to properly monitor women in recovery.
• Failure to document fetal age or possibility of viability prior to abortions.
• Women calling back with complications (such as heavy bleeding) did not have access to professional staff members.
• Lack of a required infection control committee.
• Missing drugs
• Failure to log complications, such as possible perforations, heavy bleeding, or hospitalizations that resulted from an abortion procedure.
• A botched 28-week abortion — misdiagnosed as 20 weeks — that required emergency hospitalization.

In January a sign on the door of the Birmingham, Alabama Planned Parenthood said they were closed.
Planned Parenthood Birmingham

A statement from Planned Parenthood to the media read, “We are slowing down our services in Birmingham temporarily in order to upgrade our operations.”
Now, the abortion giant claims that they suspended operations in at the Birmingham facility because of illegal activity conducted by two former staff members.

The abortion giant told MyFoxAl that the staff members were allegedly selling illegal prescription medicine in the parking lot. Planned Parenthood says they reported the activity to investigators along with the state board of nursing and board of medical examiners.

Spokesperson Nora Spencer says the group is upgrading operations and speaking with the Alabama Department of Public Health about scheduling an inspection before re-opening.

Blogger Jill Stanek uncovered more from a lawsuit filed by Planned Parenthood prior to these allegations becoming public.

Stanek Writes:

Planned Parenthood’s lawsuit left it and doctors killing babies in Alabama open to exposure. And expose this brief does. From page 6 (paragraph breaks and underline added):

Finally, the evidence will show, contrary to plaintiffs’ assertions (Doc 173 at 12), that the State has a legitimate need for additional credentialing for abortion doctors.

There are immediate reasons to question the competence and ethics of at least two of the five doctors (40%) who work for plaintiffs as well as their employees more generally. Dr. A is currently being sued for malpractice arising from his misdiagnosis of a patient at a Birmingham abortion clinic. Dr. P2 is currently being prosecuted by the federal government for Medicaid fraud.

And Planned Parenthood’s Birmingham clinic was recently closed after an employee of Planned Parenthood unlawfully sold prescription drugs in the clinic’s parking lot.

Abortionist sells drugs while patient dies

Posted in Abortion and Drugs, abortion clinic safety, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion clinic worker arrested, Abortion Clinics, Abortion coma, Abortion complication, Abortion death, Abortion Regulation, Abortionist, Abortionist arrested, Abortionist loses medical license, Abortionists and Drugs, Kermit Gosnell with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 18, 2013 by saynsumthn

Convicted abortion doctor, Kermit Gosnell has been sentenced this week for running a pill mill out of his House of Horrors abortion clinic in Philadelphia.

DrKermitGosnell

Authorities say that the 72 year abortionist was motivated by money when he illegally dispensed narcotics, wrote fraudulent prescriptions for hundreds of thousands of prescription pills, allowed customers to purchase prescriptions under multiple names, took cash payment for the drugs and allowed customer’s to tip to the clinic’s staff.

In one case, the calloused abortionist took time to write 18 prescriptions for drugs the very night his patient lay dying from a botched abortion.

ms-Mongar

That women was 41 year-old Karnamaya Mongar, a refugee who had recently come to the United States from a resettlement camp in Nepal, when she arrived at Women’s Medical Society (WMS) “house of horrors” abortion clinic, owned by abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

gosnell_clinic_large

Mongar was 19 weeks pregnant when she came in for her abortion on November 19, 2009. Before the procedure, Gosnell employee Lynda Williams gave Mongar one pill of Cytotec, a drug used to induce labor. Williams also assisted in administering local anesthesia. When Mongar complained of pain, Williams said she called Gosnell, who told her to administer a second round of local anesthesia

According to a report for the grand jury filed by the state’s district attorney, office workers had Mrs. Mongar sign various forms which she could not read, and then began doping her up. She received repeated unmonitored, unrecorded intravenous injections of Demerol. After several hours, Mrs. Mongar stopped breathing. When employees finally noticed, Gosnell was called in and briefly attempted to give CPR. He couldn’t use the defibrillator (it was broken); nor did he administer emergency medications that might have restarted her heart. After further crucial delay, paramedics arrived, but Mrs. Mongar was probably brain dead before they were even called.

In the meantime, the clinic staff hooked up machinery and rearranged her body to make it look like they had been in the midst of a routine, abortion procedure. Even then, there might have been some slim hope of reviving Mrs. Mongar.

The paramedics were able to generate a weak pulse. But, because of the cluttered hallways and the padlocked emergency door, it took them over twenty minutes just to find a way to get her out of the building.

Doctors at the hospital managed to keep her heart beating, but they never knew what they were trying to treat, because Gosnell and his staff lied about how much anesthesia they had given, and who had given it. By that point, there was no way to restore any neurological activity. As a result of the cardiac arrest, she had stopped breathing and suffered acute anoxic encephalopathy – brain damage due to a lack of oxygen.

Mrs. Mongar remained on life support until family members could make the trip from Virginia to say good-bye.

She was pronounced dead at 6:15 p.m. on November 20, 2009.

The medical examiner concluded that the acute anoxic encephalopathy resulted from the cardiac arrest, which itself had been caused “because somebody gave her a Demerol overdose.”

Gosnell was later arrested and charged with homicide in her death as well as the deaths of 7 babies he allegedly killed with scissors after they were born. Clinic worker, Sherry West, 52, has pleaded guilty to the charge, for her role in administering at least some of the fatal dose of Demerol.

What exactly was Gosnell doing the day Karnamaya Mongar died from her abortion? He was selling narcotics:

According to court documents, Defendants SHERRY L. WEST, TAMIRRAH M. FLUELLEN, and KAREEMA N. CROSS, along with Latosha R. Lewis, Earlene Tina Baldwin, and Lynda Gail Williams, assisted defendant KERMIT B. GOSNELL in operating GOSNELL’s pill mill operation.

Among other things, WMS office staff took customers’ orders for “refill” prescriptions for controlled substances in person, over the phone, or from an WMS office answering machine. These customer orders were for prescriptions for controlled substances with no legitimate medical purpose. Customers did not see or speak to GOSNELL in order to make their request for a “refill.” The WMS office staff recorded the orders for “refills” and gave them to GOSNELL.

NOVEMBER THE DAY OF DEATH:

On or about November 18, 2009, a customer referred to as “T.J.” called Gosnell employee, Latosha R. Lewis on Lewis’ cellular telephone to order prescriptions for controlled substances in several different customer names. T.J. and Lewis discussed several different possible customer names that T.J. could use to pick up prescriptions.

Lewis indicated that GOSNELL was not in the office that day and that the next possible day to pick up prescriptions was on November 20, 2009. Lewis then
gathered the customer charts for those customers along with a written order for controlled substances and gave those charts and the order to KERMIT B. GOSNELL.

Without seeing the customers, GOSNELL wrote the requested prescriptions for the controlled substances.

On or about November 20, 2009, T.J. called Latosha R. Lewis on her cellular telephone to ask whether the prescriptions were ready to be picked up. Lewis said that she had several of T.J.’s names ready to be picked up. Within minutes, T.J. went to WMS where Lewis sold T.J. at least 19 prescriptions written by defendant KERMIT B. GOSNELL in approximately 8 different names for controlled substances totaling approximately 300 tablets of OxyContin 80mg, 280 tablets of Percocet 10mg, 360 tablets of Xanax 1mg, and 20 ounces of Phenergan with Codeine. T.J. paid Lewis $20.00 per name totaling approximately $160.00 for the fee charged by defendant GOSNELL. At the end of Lewis’ shift, this $160.00 was given to defendant GOSNELL along with all of the other money gathered during Lewis’ shift. T.J. paid Lewis an additional tip which Lewis kept for herself.

Latosha Lewis worked at Gosnell’s abortion clinic for approximately eight years, beginning in 2000 and ending on February 18, 2010. (She left to work at another facility for a year in 2002, and took two maternity leaves.) Although she completed an eight-month program at the Thompson Institute, a for-profit vocational training institution in Philadelphia, she received no certificate or license that qualified her for her responsibilities at the abortion clinic. She was not trained or certified to perform ultrasounds, to administer medication, or to deliver babies – all jobs that Gosnell assigned to her.

Lewis was present the day the National Abortion Federation came to visit Gosnell’s clinic ( more on that here)

Lewis’s duties included conducting pre-exams and ultrasounds, drawing blood, administering Cytotec and intravenous anesthesia, putting patient charts together, assisting the doctor with procedures, and attending to patients in the recovery room. She performed almost all of these tasks – except assisting with procedures – without supervision from the doctor, and usually while he was absent from the facility. For most of the time Lewis was employed at the clinic, she worked from about 10:00 a.m. until the night’s procedures were completed – sometimes as late as 2:00 or 3:00 a.m. In the beginning, Gosnell paid her $7 an hour, plus time-and-a-half overtime for anything over 40 hours and $20 cash for every second-trimester abortion. He later revised his pay scale, raising her base rate to $12 an hour, but not paying overtime. In 2008, Lewis stopped assisting with procedures and cut back her hours to 9:00 a.m. -5:00 p.m.

Lewis was working at the clinic on November 18, 2009, and conducted the pre-exam of Karnamaya Mongar. She was also present the next day when Mrs. Mongar returned, but left for the day before Mrs. Mongar began to have any troubles. Lewis remained at the clinic until law enforcement raided it on February 18, 2010.

ANOTHER DRUG DEAL ON DAY ABORTION PATIENT DIES:

Lynda Williams Gosnell Lynda Williams

According to court documents, On or about November 20, 2009, A.M., a person known to the grand jury, placed an order with Lynda Gail Williams for prescriptions for controlled substances for a customer by the name of C.B. A WMS office staff member then gathered the customer chart for C.B. along with a written order for controlled substances and gave the chart and the order to KERMIT B. GOSNELL. Without seeing C.B., GOSNELL wrote the requested prescriptions for the controlled substances.

Gosnell Perp Walk

Gosnell has been convicted on three counts of first-degree murder for the death of that patient as well as killing several babies by cutting their spinal cords with scissors.

In addition, Gosnell has received a concurrent 30 years in prison for the distributing of the drugs.

Abortion Doc Hospitalized 4th Woman in 10 Months, 2nd in 4 Days

Posted in 911 calls, abortion clinic safety, Abortion complication, Abortion Regulation, Abortionist, Carhart with tags , , , , , , , on December 12, 2013 by saynsumthn

Carhart leroycarhartORAn eyewitness has reported that he observed an ambulance outside LeRoy Carhart’s Bellevue, Nebraska, abortion clinic on November 30, 2013, and that the woman transported may have suffered complications from a second-trimester abortion. This emergency transport follows one just four days earlier at Carhart’s late-term abortion clinic in Germantown, Maryland, where a patient was rushed to the hospital and required emergency surgery.

Carhart, age 72, has been involved in an increasing number of abortion emergencies in the past several years, including the late-term abortion death of Christin Gilbert at a clinic in Wichita, Kansas, in January, 2005, and the Jennifer Morbelli death earlier this year.

“Women are paying the price for Carhart’s ineptitude as State agencies refuse to discipline this human rights abuser,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We believe that Carhart is desperately trying to conceal his increasing number of botched abortions from the public. That’s why he is using private ambulance companies instead of calling 911. Carhart burns the candle at both ends doing abortions every week in three states. At his age, that is a recipe for disaster.”

Local Nebraska activist Steve Williams said in a written statement that on Saturday, November 30, he was praying outside Carhart’s Bellevue abortion business when a private ambulance from a company called “Medics at Home” arrived at about 11:35 a.m. with sirens screaming. Paramedics picked up a Hispanic-looking woman, then left the scene with no lights or sirens.

The ambulance was followed by a man in a truck. The couple in that truck had been seen at the clinic the previous day, indicating that the abortion was likely a multi-day, second trimester procedure.

This incident represents the 4th known emergency hospitalization of a Carhart abortion patient in the past 10 months and the 5th since March, 2012. Three of the previous incidents took place in Germantown, Maryland, where he relocated his post-20-week late-term abortion business after Nebraska passed the nation’s first 20-week abortion ban based on the baby’s ability to feel pain in 2010.

Former abortion clinic director says abortions in Texas could be cut in half following pro-life restrictions

Posted in Abortion Regulation, Life Dynamics, Life Talk, Texas Abortion, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 11, 2013 by saynsumthn

CarolEverettFormer abortion clinic director turned pro-life, Carol Everett, appeared on Life Talk and stated that new restrictions in the state could cut abortions in half.

Carol spent 6 years selling abortions to women in four abortion clinics in Dallas/Fort Worth. She writes on her website, The Heidi Group, “After 35,000 abortions, the death of one woman and surgery on 19 other patients, God brought me to a crossroads. My life changed when I came to know the love and saving grace of Jesus Christ in 1983. I realized that my work was hurting women, not helping them.

Carol told Life Talk viewers that 17 abortion clinics have closed so far. One third of abortion clinics in Texas did not have hospital admitting privileges. With the defunding of Planned Parenthood, 13,000 babies have been saved. Abortions will be cut in half in Texas because of these laws.

5thCircuit1451444_10151677251761898_257504590_nThe law has been upheld by three female judges.

After new abortion restrictions passed in Texas, Carol said the media is only reporting the abortion clinic closures, calling it a “War on Women” even though far more family planning facilities have opened which do not provide abortions to assist women in the state since the law went into effect, she states, “I’ll tell you what’s interesting on this war [on women], they’ve all been printing all these stories about how there’s no place for women to go. We went from 95 #abortion clinics providing Family Planning services in #Texas to 2,961 providers, some MD’s, all across the state of Texas, even in rural areas, and I want you to know that I have been working for weeks to try and get that printed [in the media] and no one will print it.”

Mark Crutcher Life Talk Dec 2013 2

Mark Crutcher, producer and host of Life Talk and president of Life Dynamics, said, “Do you want someone doing abortions who can’t get hospital privileges? The fact is, that’s who winds up working at an abortion clinic. No one goes to medical school to say, oh when I get out of medical school, I want to go work at Planned Parenthood. Nobody says that. You wind up at Planned Parenthood because you’re a bad doctor. We have seen this through our malpractice cases over the years. You are a bad doctor, you can’t get hospital privileges, you’ve got malpractice problems, or you lost your practice because you’re no dam good. That’s what happens and that’s who winds up working at Planned Parenthood.

Why would we say to poor women, you’re only option is to get your health care from an abortionist?”

TX Mailers Life Talk Dec 2013 Life Dynamics

Life Dynamics recently sent out fliers to every doctor in the state warning them that the abortion lobby wanted to recruit them because they have no doctors working at these clinics with Hospital privileges now required by law.

Carol added that Planned Parenthood is being upheld by federal dollars because of ObamaCare, “Those Planned Parenthood’s that are staying alive is because they are going to be providing ObamaCare. And we have got to find a way to take care of the dollar a month that was supposed to be optional that is now in ObamaCare. Every person in Obamacare will be paying a dollar a month for abortions.”

Life Talk is a monthly pro-life TV show produced in Denton, Texas by Life Dynamics.

Dangerous “Ugly Black Babies” abortion clinic re-opens in Charlotte

Posted in Abortion and Racism, Abortion Clinic Closed, Abortion clinic closed by state, Abortion Clinic Inspections, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion Racism, Abortion Regulation, Abortionist, Abortionist Racist with tags , , , , , , , , on November 27, 2013 by saynsumthn

A Preferred WomenA Charlotte abortion clinic, which was forced to shut its doors after an investigation and whose abortion doctor once called the children he aborted “Ugly black babies” has reopened after agreeing to make changes.

Officials from North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services told WBTV that A Preferred Women’s Health Center, LLC will be allowed to reopen as early as Wednesday morning, which it did. The clinic reopened at 9:30 a.m.

WBTV learned the clinic chose not to appeal state’s decision and has agreed to a quality improvement plan. The plan requires the clinic to stop using a drug that was being administered incorrectly.

The clinic, located on Latrobe Drive, has proven they are safe to open, according to a state spokesman. The clinic closed at the end of the day on Friday at the request of the DHHS.

WBTV ON YOUR SIDE uncovered a 12 page report detailing what State health inspectors found in April after someone complained. It says the clinic was administering the cancer drug Methotrexate, for abortions.

The report also says the clinic gave patients the drug orally, but state regulations require the drug to be injected.

Debbie Lang, who owns a dog boarding business across the street from the clinic, told WBTV on Monday night that she was happy the clinic had been shut down. Lang is openly pro choice, but says the clinic brings problems to the office park.

“A couple of the girls would come up here asking us to use the telephone, or they didn’t have a ride home,” Lang said. “One girl looked kind of ill.”

In Texas, another abortion clinic has re-opened after they could not get a doctor with hospital privileges to perform abortions under state law. (more here)

BACK STORY:

A Preferred Ab Clinic051313-latrobe-closed

The abortion facility on Latrobe Drive was closed after state officials revoked its license to operate on May 10, calling it “an imminent threat to the health and safety of patients.”

A Preferred Women’s Health Center, located at 3320 Latrobe Drive, offers chemical abortions up to nine weeks’ gestation and surgical abortions up to 20 weeks. It is one of three abortion clinics in Charlotte.

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.

Dr. Ashutosh Ron Virmani

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.

Pro-choice blog supports TX abortion clinic w/ health code violations

A pro-choice blog which claims they want Safe and Legal abortion is supporting an abortion clinic chain with recent health code violations:

RH Reality Blog Nov 2013 2

RH Reality Blog writes, “One Texas abortion provider said she canceled 45 scheduled abortion procedures Friday morning as a new state law, mandating that abortion-providing doctors have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals, goes into effect following a federal court of appeals ruling handed down Thursday. Amy Hagstrom Miller is the CEO at Whole Woman’s Health, a group of Texas health-care facilities that, until Friday, had been providing abortions at five locations in the state. Now, there are only two Whole Woman’s clinics that staff doctors who have hospital admitting privileges, leaving their clients in Fort Worth, San Antonio, and McAllen to seek safe, legal abortion care elsewhere.”

The pro-choice or should I say radically pro-abort blog fails to mention that this abortion clinic chain was recently inspected and several health code violations were found. In fact, of the three abortion clinics they closed, this one was kept open- WHY?

WWH abortion clinic health violations Oct 2013

In October, investigators with the state of Texas cited a Beaumont abortion clinic for 13 health and safety code violations.

Whole Womens Abortion Inspection Oct 2013 non PhysicianWhole Womens abortion Beaumont Inspection Oct 2013 expired drugsWhole Womens Health Abortion clinic inspection Oct 2013

WWH Beaumont abortion clinic 13 health violations

According to Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics, “Immediately after the ruling, the abortion lobby went into melt-down mode with a lot of hand-wringing and arm-flapping about how the state’s abortion clinics could not meet these standards and would have to close. This, of course, was accompanied by dire warnings that every city in Texas was about to be littered with the dead bodies of women killed because these places were being put out of business. I guess we are supposed to conclude that abortion clinics are the only things keeping women alive.”

Since the ruling, Whole Woman’s Health (WWH) has announced that they could not comply with these new safety standards and are shutting down three of their five facilities.

Crutcher points out that one of the abortion clinics which WWH will keep open is the Beaumont abortion clinic, saying, “The interesting thing is, they are going to keep the Beaumont facility open – the same one that was just found to be out of compliance with the old standards. Now on the surface, this seems odd. After all, if these people are operating a facility that can’t meet the old lower standards, how are they going to comply with the new higher ones. And my take on it is that the people over at Whole Woman’s Health might know something that we don’t know. Maybe what they know is that the facilities they are closing are even filthier than the one in Beaumont.”

We all know that abortion clinics are the upmost in good care – right? WRONG- I mean, the state has NEVER had to take an action against Whole Women’s before?

Earlier this year Texas Right to Life reported that Fourteen abortion centers were cited as having infractions that violated inspections, yet due to the weakness of the current law, only one was fined by the state. Although many of the violations were recorded, much of the reports was blacked out. Below is a summary of the little that is actually legible:

“Whole Woman’s Health and Planned Parenthood want the public to believe that abortion facilities are safe for women. A rusty suction machine, faulty sterilizing fluid, a faulty sterilization machine, holes in the floor exposing the facility to rodents, expired and unlabeled medication, and absent or poorly trained nursing staff contradict the abortion industry’s rhetoric,” said Joe Pojman, Ph.D., executive director of Texas Alliance for Life. “No woman should be exposed to such horrendous conditions. Women deserve better.”

Here is a list of some of the violations of current law cited by DSHS’ inspectors in their reports. (DSHS has redacted information from the reports that identifies staff or patients.) Some violations appears repeatedly over three years of inspections. The most recent inspection was on October 3, 2013, weeks after Hagstrom Miller’s statement.
