Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Southeast, have filed a lawsuit challenging a state law that places restrictions on abortion providers and would force most of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions.
In testimony against the stricter legislation on abortion in Alabama, a medical director of Planned Parenthood Southeast’s clinics in Birmingham and Mobile, told the media that she previously had admitting privileges while a faculty member at the University of Alabama School of Medicine, but said conversations with UAB officials made it clear she would not be able to get those privileges again.
“They did not want a relationship with Planned Parenthood at all,” said Roe. “They did not want the political controversies that come with having a relationship with Planned Parenthood.”
The media went to great lengths to shield the name of this Planned Parenthood doctor, but, if I was to guess, I would guess Tamer Middleton as the one who possibly made this claim that hospitals did not want a relationship with Planned Parenthood.
The doctor giving testimony referred to only as “Roe” in the article allegedly testified behind a black curtain, and said they had never had an abortion patient transferred to a hospital by stretcher.
On cross-examination of Roe, Assistant Attorney General Margaret Fleming questioned Roe about an incident that occurred late last year, where two employees of Planned Parenthood’s Birmingham office were found to be selling abortion drugs in the parking lot of the facility. Planned Parenthood has closed the facility and, with the exception of Roe, fired the staff; Planned Parenthood Southeast CEO Staci Fox testified earlier this week that she expected the facility to reopen within a month. The Birmingham clinic of Planned Parenthood Southeast ceased operations in January.
Fleming asked Roe if the clinic had followed up with patients following the closing of the facility in January, saying there was no documentation of follow-up calls to patients in the medical records of the facility. Fleming also said that the staff delegated to make the phone calls had been dismissed.
Roe said the clinic did do the follow ups. “It was not documented, but the calls were made,” she said.
Fleming also questioned whether the clinic’s back-up physician had a substantial role in the clinic, citing Roe’s earlier testimony that she would refer patients experiencing complications to a hospital. Roe said she made those judgments on a case-by-case basis.
Fleming also pressed Roe on whether the Birmingham clinic was in compliance with Alabama Department of Public Health regulations that require physicians performing abortions to contact emergency room doctors when patients are admitted with complications. Roe said the clinic “facilitates and complies” with physicians in treatment.
“Your own protocol is inconsistent with the rules of the Alabama Department of Public Health in this case,” Fleming said.
“Yes, ma’am,” Roe replied.
On redirect questioning, Roe said that the ADPH had never complained to the clinic about its current policies, and that they would change them if so directed.
According to a report by Operation Rescue, Planned Parenthood abortionist Tamer Middleton is a “fly-in” abortionist who is known to work at abortion clinics in predominately Black neighborhoods, including Planned Parenthood in Mobile, Alabama, and a Feminist Women’s Health Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where late-term abortions are done. Ironically, medical licensing sites list her “specialty” as “Family Medicine.”
Tamer is listed on the 2011 Planned Parenthood Southeast 990 as “Director of Ultrasound Services”
Middleton, who is a regular blogger on the pro-abortion RH Reality Check Blog, is based in Georgia, travels to Virginia Beach to abort babies then leaves the state, providing no continuity of care to women suffering from complications from abortions.
But by 2012 the abortionist/doctor working at the clinic remained the same.
Tamer Middleton graduated from Morehouse School Of Medicine and according to her medical board records works for Grady Memorial Hospital Systems
Tyrone Malloy graduated from JOHNS HOPKINS and works at the following hospitals: DEKALB MEDICAL CENTER, ATLANTA MEDICAL CENTER,DECATUR HOSPITAL,EMORY UNIVERSITY – Malloy has been disciplined by the state of Georgia:
Tyrone Malloy is no stranger to this blogger. Feminist Women’s Health Center Abortionist Tyrone Malloy was involved in the 2009 abortion related death of a 23 year-old patient and was indicted in 2011 by a Georgia DeKalb County grand jury for two counts of Medicaid fraud.

Malloy was recently convicted of Medicaid fraud and will be serving years in prison.
On Friday March 21, 2014, following a guilty verdict by a jury, DeKalb Superior Court Judge C. J. Becker sentenced Malloy to four years in prison and six years probation on two counts of Medicaid Fraud.
Malloy was the owner of Old National Gynecology abortion clinic which performed first-trimester abortions. According to authorities, for several years, Malloy engaged in a scheme to defraud Georgia Medicaid by billing for office visits associated with abortions and for ultrasound procedures which were never performed. In total, he fraudulently billed Georgia Medicaid for over $386,000.
In a press release, the Attorney General,explained that Federal funds may not be used to pay for abortions and services associated with abortions, except in circumstances under which the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest or circumstances under which continuation of the pregnancy would endanger the life of the mother. The Georgia Medicaid program is supported by state and federal tax dollars.

So…in summary, it is apparent that some of the so-called “trustworthy” abortion doctors are not as perfect as the media paints them to be….like Malloy – who worked at the same place as this Planned Parenthood physician….just say’n.
