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.”

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.

In 2009, TAMER MIDDLETON worked alongside now jailed abortionist Tyrone Malloy.

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.

On March 21, 2008, 23 year old Sherika Mayo, went to Summit Medical Associates in Atlanta, Georgia for the elective abortion of her 25 week unborn child. After the abortion, while in the recovery room, the woman went into cardiac arrest and was transferred to Atlanta Medical Center where she underwent a hysterectomy and bowel repair. Medical records indicate that vigorous blood product replacement was undertaken, but the women coded in the I.C.U. where she died. The Georgia State Medical Board reviewed the case and determined that the abortionist, Tyrone Malloy, “failed to conform to minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing medical practice.” His license was reprimanded and while he was ordered to pay a $10,000.00 fine, he was allowed to continue practicing and performing abortions.

A Search for Malloy uncovers his resume reveals he is linked to other abortion clinics:

Michigan Board Corruption Shielded Alexander from 2009 Botched Abortion Complaint

Board of Medicine Chair linked to Muskegon doctor

Updated: Monday, 18 Feb 2013, 8:41 PM EST
Published : Monday, 18 Feb 2013, 5:57 PM EST

By Ken Kolker

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) – More than 10 months after a complaint was filed against a Muskegon doctor alleging botched abortions, the chairman of the state Board of Medicine answered with this response: “No investigation needed.”

http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/target_8/muskegon-abortion-clinic-conflict-of-interest?ref=scroller&categoryId=10001&status=true

That closed out the complaint filed in 2009 against Dr. Robert L. Alexander, who continued to operate the Woman’s Medical Services clinic at 863 E. Apple Avenue until the City of Muskegon recently shut it down over alleged unsafe and unsanitary conditions.

But records obtained by Target 8 raise questions about that ruling and about how the state Board of Medicine — made up mostly of doctors — polices the state’s doctors.

robert Aelexander investigation feb 2013

Then- Board of Medicine Chairman Dr. George Shade Jr., who made the decision not to investigate, has a history with Alexander, Target 8 found.

Alexander lost his medical license in 1990 and spent time in federal prison for having sold illegal prescriptions at a Detroit weight loss clinic in the 1980s.

Shade played a key role in helping Alexander get back his license, working for a time as his supervisor, according to state records obtained through the Freedom of Information Act.

“He shouldn’t have been investigating my case if he was his (Alexander’s) mentor,” said Sheria McCloud of Muskegon, the patient in the complaint against Alexander. “It should have been somebody else investigating. Why would you investigate my case and you are his mentor?”

Dr. Michael Engel, the former Muskegon OB-GYN who filed the original complaint alleging botched abortions, said he was shocked to learn about the connection between Alexander and Shade.

Both Engel and McCloud said no one from the state contacted them about the complaint, which he filed in June 2009.

“It’s a travesty,” Engel said in a telephone interview. “The government protects him. That’s terrible. This guy knew him, talked to him.”

State Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker (R-Lawton) called Shade’s decision a “clear conflict of interest” that “should never have occurred.”

Schuitmaker served on the Board of Medicine before the incident and is now a member of the Senate Health Policy Committee. She said she planned to take Target 8’s findings to the committee chairman for a possible hearing.

However, Shade told Target 8 in a telephone interview that the “process was followed.”

Complaints against doctors are sent to the 19-member state Board of Medicine, which is made up of doctors and members of the public. The Board of Medicine determines whether complaints should be sent to the state Bureau of Licensing and Regulations (LARA) for investigation.

“We investigate all files,” Shade said. “It’s not one-sided.”

That review, Shade said, includes a statement from the patient. However, the patient told Target 8 that nobody contacted her. Records show no patient statement in the original complaint.

Dr. Engel’s complaint alleged Alexander botched an abortion he performed on Sheria McCloud in April 2009. A medical document provided to Target 8 by the patient shows she believed she was 10 weeks pregnant at the time.

“She informed me that Dr. Alexander did do an ultrasound and then, ‘stuck something up inside her and moved it around, removing something,'” Dr. Engel wrote in his complaint.

In his complaint, Engel wrote that he spoke to Alexander, who told him he did a “limited ultrasound,” that it was difficult to do the ultrasound, “due to the patient being obese.”

“He stated he saw a gestational sac and removed that,” Engel wrote.

“What he sucked out, who knows,” Engel told Target 8. “He could have punctured her placenta. This was an outrageous thing he did.”

“When I left, I thought that the process was done, because when I came home, I was bleeding,” McCloud told Target 8.

A month later, according to the complaint, McCloud felt pain and movement in her abdomen, sending her to the ER. An ultrasound found she was 30 weeks pregnant. She eventually gave birth to Jeremiah, a healthy boy who is now 3 years old.

Also in his complaint, Engel alleged that Alexander had perforated a second patient’s uterus during an abortion. It “rendered the patient unable to walk for a month due to the pain,” he wrote.

“She could have bled to death,” Engel told Target 8.

In Muskegon County court records, Target 8 found allegations of a third botched abortion: that Alexander performed an abortion on a woman who hours later delivered a stillborn baby missing the skull, brain and other body parts. However, this allegation was not part of the state complaint against Alexander.

Engel told Target 8 he treated about 10 of Alexander’s patients after abortions over about six years for either bleeding or infection.

Engel, now a doctor at a hospital in Elkhart, Ind., said his complaint was not about whether abortion is right or wrong, though he describes himself as pro-life.

“It’s wrong what he does to women,” he said. “I’m not talking the unborn. I’m talking about women.”

Shade insisted the complaint was filed by a patient, not by a doctor,hough records show otherwise.

In his one-page response to the complaint, Shade wrote: “Appropriate evaluation of the patient was performed. She was outside the legal limit for voluntary termination of pregnancy and was informed of such by the licensee (Alexander). Patient was refunded her payment. No breach of standard of care, no fraud, no unethical practice.”

But the doctor who filed the complaint and the patient said they don’t understand how Shade reached that conclusion.

Court records show Alexander told an attorney he couldn’t find McCloud’s medical records in September 2009, several months after the complaint was filed.

McCloud said she kept all her records from Alexander’s clinic, but nobody asked for them.

Engel said he expected the state to investigate his complaint, “which would entail talking to him (Alexander), going to his place of business, talking to me, talking to the patient, doing basic due diligence, which they didn’t do.”

The state responded to his complaint 10 months later in May 2010, Engel said, when it wrote that a “member” of the Board of Medicine, Dr. Shade, had determined there was “insufficient basis to authorize investigation of your allegation.”

The patient said the doctor never gave her a refund. She said she didn’t know the complaint had been dismissed until Target 8 told her.

“To this day, I thought the case was still open,” McCloud said. “Nobody ever sent me no letter or nothing.”

“That’s what she says,” said Shade, insisting the state notified the patient. “I know the process. I was on the Board of Medicine for eight years.”

A spokeswoman for the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA), which oversees health professionals, said her agency was not aware of any potential conflict of interest. LARA investigates complaints against doctors only if authorized by the Board of Medicine.

“We have no way of knowing if there was a conflict of interest, or if there was any relationship between the two,” spokeswoman Jeannie Vogel said.

Sherri Johnson, manager of the Allegation Section of the Health Investigation Division, said she had “no knowledge” of a possible conflict of interest.

It was Johnson who signed the letter saying that the state wouldn’t investigate the complaint based on Shade’s findings. She said the state cannot override the Board of Medicine.

Shade’s association with Alexander dates back at least 16 years.

The state revoked Alexander’s license in 1990 after he was convicted in federal court for writing prescriptions for controlled substances, including Valium and Preludin, to patients he never saw. The patients included undercover FBI agents.

A few years later, after his release from federal prison, Alexander was trying to get his license back. Shade wrote a letter on Alexander’s behalf. Alexander used it as “Exhibit A-1” in a hearing before the licensing board.

Before getting his “unlimited” license, Alexander worked in a “training program” under Dr. Shade’s supervision at Detroit Riverview Hospital, records show.

Shade told Target 8 he helped Alexander at the request of the Michigan State Medical Society, “which thought he was treated unjustly. They wanted to correct what they thought was a major injustice done to him.”

“I was in the field of obstetrics and gynecology,” he said. “They brought the file to me. They wanted to see if I could help him get re-acclimated.”

Shade is a long-time OB-GYN who served as senior vice president and chief quality officer at Detroit Medical Center and taught at Wayne State University School of Medicine. In October, he was named chief medical officer at St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital.

He told Target 8 he hasn’t “kept in touch with Dr. Alexander” and didn’t know that the City of Muskegon had shut down his clinic.

When pushed about the potential conflict of interest, Shade responded: “It’s a very detailed process to investigate, and that process was followed. This conversation is over.”

As for Alexander, he has told Target 8 he had no plans to re-open the Muskegon clinic and was not working.

TyronneMalloy

The Georgia Supreme Court heard an appeal of a pre-trial ruling involving an abortionist accused of illegally using Medicaid funds to perform services associated with abortions. Tyrone Malloy who was involved in the 2009 abortion related death of a 23 year-old patient, was indicted in 2011 by a Georgia DeKalb County grand jury for two counts of Medicaid fraud. The indictment alleges that from 2007-2010, Malloy accepted $131,615 in Medicaid payments to which he wasn’t entitled “because such services were associated with the performance of elective abortions.” The second count alleges that in the same period, Malloy then fraudulently accepted $255,024 in Medicaid payments for “detailed” ultrasounds which had not been performed. If convicted, Malloy could be sentenced to a $10,000 fine or up to 10 years in prison.

Abortion doctor accused of Medicaid fraud
ATLANTA — 12/19/2011
A metro-area abortion doctor and his office manager are under arrest, accused of taking hundreds of thousands of dollars in fraudulent Medicaid payments.

A spokesperson for Georgia’s Attorney General says Dr. Tyrone Malloy and office manager CathyAnn Warner took more than $380,000 in payments for ultrasounds that were never done, and elective abortions that were prohibited from use of Medicaid funds. The Attorney General’s spokesman says that is only allowed when the mother’s life is in danger, or in cases of rape or incest.

Malloy owns and operates the Old National Gynecology office in College Park, but received the Medicaid payments at his DeKalb County office on Rainbow Drive. A tip from Georgia’s Department of Community Health, which oversees the Medicaid program, launched the investigation.

Channel 2 investigative reporter Jodie Fleischer knocked on the abortion clinic’s locked doors on Monday. No one answered, but the camera captured people peering through the office blinds several times. About an hour later, a string of cars, presumed to be driven by employees, abruptly left, stopping briefly to lock the gate behind them.

A DeKalb County grand jury indicted Malloy and Warner for two counts each of Medicaid Fraud. The charges carry up to ten years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Malloy was arrested and bonded out of jail last week. Deputies picked up Warner late Monday afternoon.

The clinic’s website says its physicians are well versed in the changing laws of abortion medicine. They also provide a discount for Medicaid patients.

By phone, a receptionist at Dr. Malloy’s DeKalb office told Fleischer to leave a message; that he was in with a patient. He did not return the call. The office manager, when reached by phone, hung up on Fleischer.
