A Michigan abortion doctor may be facing possible sanctions after failing to notify the state about several arrests and criminal convictions in violation of state law. Thomas James Gordon performs abortions at Heritage Clinic for Women, a Grand Rapids National Abortion Federation clinic which has failed to publicly distance themselves from Gordon despite Live Action News documenting his criminal history in January. Now, the state’s medical licensing board has filed a formal complaint against Gordon for failing to notify them of the convictions.

Thomas Gordon

According to a search of Michigan Corporations conducted by Live Action News, Gordon is the Registered Agent for the Heritage Clinic for Women abortion clinic. His offenses included domestic violence as well as “Weapons – Firearms – Possession Under the Influence” among other offenses. In addition, Gordon has history of domestic violence directed at his wife which should cause concern for female patients under his care.

WZZM13, a local Grand Rapids news outlet, has reported that Gordon’s failure to report the arrests and convictions could affect his ability to practice:

“Documents we obtained show state experts are concerned the doctor’s past criminal cases could affect his ability to practice in a “safe and competent manner”.

Pro-life researcher, Lynn Mills spoke with Live Action News about the case and said that local activists who regularly pray and counsel outside Gordon’s abortion facility began noticing his absences in January and became suspicious. She provided a copy of the complaint filed by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs against Gordon in early March for failing to notify the state within 30 days of a criminal conviction. Michigan state law requires that, “A licensee or registrant shall notify the department of any criminal conviction within 30 days after the date of the conviction. Failure of a licensee or registrant to notify the department under this subsection shall result in administrative action under sections 16221 and 16226.”

According to the complaint , Gordon failed to report the following criminal convictions to the state as required under the law:

April of 1992– Convicted of “Aggravated Assault” (suspended sentence – 90 days in jail a fine and 18 months probation.)

Even more disturbing, WZZM13 dug into the Gordon’s violent history further and discovered that he had allegedly threatened his wife with a pistol. They reported that “In 2010, Gordon’s wife Shelly filed a Personal Protection Order against him. She wrote quote:”Thomas has beat (me) several times in the past 3 years, he has even put his 45 mm pistol to my head when I was sleeping.”

A copy of the order provided to Live Action News from local activists shows that while on a trip to Jamaica, Gordon’s wife alleges that a “layover and wrong transport made him snap.” She describes his anger against her and the hotel front desk clerk. After being escorted to her room, she described how Gordon came back to the room where she was already sleep when, according to the abortion doctor’s wife, he “started hitting me in face, body said he doesn’t like me – hit me and damage my nose…”

Gordon’s wife Shelly writes that she defended herself and told Gordon he had a problem and she accused him of “probably beat his first wife” adding that she had filed for divorce.

A copy of a Kent County Sheriff Department Affidavit of Probable Cause dated November 6, 2011 provided to Live Action News paints a picture of how unstable and violent this Michigan abortionist is, reading :

    Suspect Thomas Gordon, did commit a felonious assault upon his wife, Shelly Gordon. The Gordons were involved in a verbal argument, in the finished basement of their residence. Thomas had a Kimber Combat Carry, semi auto pistol, chambered in .45 ACP, resting on the counter of a kitchenette area. The victim, Shelly Gordon, stated that she was going to go upstairs. Thomas stated “I’ll shoot you and anyone that fucks with me.” He then ran over to the counter top, picked up the pistol, racked the slide and pointed it at Shelly. Shelly then grabbed hold of the pistol and Thomas’ hand. She stated “you are not going to shoot me,” as she tried to pry the pistol from his grasp. They continued the physical struggle and Thomas fell against the wall and then on to the floor. Shelly was able to grab the gun and run upstairs. She secreted the gun under a pillow, on the upstairs couch. Shelly then ran outside and hid, where she called 911. Thomas did submit to a breathalyzer, upon arrival at the jail. This yielded the BAC results of .21. It should be noted that the magazine for the pistol, although loaded with six rounds, was not in the grip of the pistol. Shelly stated that she believed the firearm was loaded.

The affidavit also states that the abortionist told police officers called to the scene of the incident that he is a doctor who makes $1,000,000 per year and “drinks alcohol every day.”

Despite his violent history, the Heritage Clinic for Women website describes Gordon as possessing, “a strong sense of dedication, professionalism and integrity.” Live Action News called Heritage Clinic for Women and has verified that Gordon is still performing abortions at the center. A June 2, 2016 search of “abortion providers” listed at the NAF website reveals that the National Abortion Federation continues to refer to Heritage despite Gordon’s criminal record.

In an effort to persuade authorities to take immediate action against Gordon’s ability to practice medicine, local pro-lifers have set up an online petition asking The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to act quickly to summarily suspend Gordon’s license. They are also asking concerned pro-lifers to please call Shelly Edgerton who is the Director of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs for the state as well as Michigan Attorney General, Bill Schuette to voice their concern about the abortionist as well. The petition along with additional contact information can be found here. According to WZZM13, Gordon has until June 6 to respond to the complaint filed against him by the state.

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.”

Michigan abortion clinic investigation result of pro-life dirt-digger complaint

Posted in Abortion clinic closed by state, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortionist, Michigan Abortion clinic with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 22, 2016 by saynsumthn

A Michigan Attorney General lawsuit recently filed to shut down a Detroit abortion clinic for illegally operating can be credited to the hard work of a persistent pro-life activist. Abortion clinics in the state of Michigan are under the watchful eye of Lynn Mills who is using unusual tactics to close them down. Mills has been researching the abortion industry in her state for many years. She spends hours combing through documents connected to either an abortion clinic or the doctor or owner of the facility. Her dirt-digging skills have been credited with the revocation of the licenses of abortion doctors as well as the closure of abortion clinics.

Recently Mills discovered that Summit Women’s Center of Detroit which performs abortions up to 24 weeks, did not have a licensed physician listed on their corporate filings in violation of state law. As a result, the state has moved to not only dissolve the clinic as a corporation but to enjoin the officers from operating a medical facility in the state ever again.

-Summit-medical

At one time, the abortion clinic chain founded by the Lipton family in 1973, had six locations in 5 states:Connecticut, Michigan, Georgia, Nevada, and Wisconsin. A few years ago the abortion clinic in Wisconsin closed. Eventually the two Connecticut facilities closed along with the Las Vegas center, leaving the Detroit, Michigan and Georgia centers remaining.

In 2013, Mills said she was looking at the Summit website where it stated that their physicians were all OBGYN board certified. Mills was familiar with most of the abortionists and she knew that the statement was false. After the discovery, a complaint was filed with the Michigan Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) for false advertising. Shortly thereafter Mills rechecked the clinic’s website and noted that it had changed, now stating:

    Most of our Physicians are board-certified obstetrician / gynecologists. Some of our medical personnel are licensed with extensive backgrounds in reproductive health services.

“When they are caught in a lie, we have to speak out
,” Mills said, noting that this incident was pointed out in the current complaint.

According to the complaint filed by the Michigan State Attorney’s Office and provided to Saynsumthn, David Lipton, is listed as Summit’s president, secretary, treasurer, while Anise Burrell was listed as the administrator and contact. But, Mills points out that after the state passed stricter abortion laws, requiring abortion clinics be licensed and inspected, Summit’s corporate filings no longer only listed Lipton as an officer but now included long-time abortionist Alex Pickens Jr. MD. Pickens JR was listed on the corporate filings as far back as 2011.

Summitt 2011 Pickens

Mills later discovered that in the most recent filings, Pickens was no longer listed on the corporate filings prompting her to file a complaint with the state’s Attorney General in December of 2015. In that document, provided to Live Action News, Mills points out that by 2015 David Lipton was the only officer listed in the corporate filings, and no physician was listed as an officer of the abortion clinic chain.

David Lipton officer Summit abortion

Mills pointed out in her complaint with the Attorney General that the corporation’s purpose had changed from “practice of medicine doctor” to “management company” despite the Summit’s records stating that “each shareholder is a licensed person in 1 or more of the professional services provided by the professional corporation.” Mills saw immediately that this was false, since David Lipton was NOT licensed, writing, “there is no Licensed medical doctor as part of its 2015 filing which is required by Michigan state law.”

Michigan statutes state: “A professional corporation shall not engage in any business other than providing the professional service or services for which it was specifically incorporated.”

    “We saw that the corporation papers were not in order and Pickens the abortionist had not signed anything for years.”

Bill Shuette, the State’s Attorney General appears to note the work of Mills in his complaint. According to that complaint, Shutte’s office reviewed Summit’s incorporation in 2011 through its annual report of 2014, noting that Summit P.C.’s sole officer and director was Alex Pickens, Jr., MD, a licensed physician; but on May 11, 2015, the AG’s complaint states that David Lipton filed the 2015 annual report with LARA certifying that he was Summit P.C.’s president, secretary, treasurer, director, and sole shareholder, but no physician was listed as required by law.

Pickens Bankruptcy

Additionally, the complaint alleged that Alex Pickens, Jr., MD had filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and failed to list Summit P.C. as an asset or entity. That bankruptcy document was included in Mill’s original complaint to the AG. The petition required Pickens to disclose “all businesses in which [he] was an officer, director, partner, or managing executive . . . within six years” of commencing the bankruptcy. Pickens disclosed three businesses: one professional corporation, one business corporation, and one nonprofit corporation. But failed to disclose Summit.

Pickens Bankruptcy

The AG’s complaint states:

    Pickens’s failure to disclose his ownership of Summit P.C. to the bankruptcy court, and the subsequent filing of ownership by David Lipton, suggests that Alex Pickens, Jr., MD may never have been the true owner of Summit P.C. and that Summit P.C. was organized through fraud and repeatedly and willfully exceeded its authority.

The Attorney General’s complaint alleges that David Lipton, who is listed on Summit P.C.’s 2015 annual report as its sole officer, director, and shareholder, is not a “licensed person” under the law.

    Therefore, Defendant Lipton’s role as sole shareholder of Summit P.C. violates state law. Likewise, the transfer of ownership from Alex Pickens, Jr., MD to Lipton also violates state law.

The complaint states that the “remedy is dissolution” and that “the failure of a professional corporation to ensure that its shareholders are legally qualified to provided professional services “is grounds for the forfeiture of its articles of incorporation and its dissolution,” which may be brought by the Attorney General.

It also states that the state wants to enjoin all employees of Summit from providing medical services unless they comply with state law:

    The AG Seeks to preliminarily enjoin Defendants David Lipton and Anise Burrell from incorporating, organizing, or doing business in the State of Michigan as an owner, officer, or employee of any other corporation or entity for the purpose of offering or providing medical services to the public, practicing medicine, or contracting to have medical services performed for such corporation or entity, unless and until they obtain the requisite licenses and otherwise complies with Michigan law. [MCL 600.3601]

According to Mills, since the AG filed their complaint and just days prior to the publication of this report, Mills said she pulled Summit’s corporate filings again and noticed that Pickens is now listed as the Medical Director. This comes after, the attorney general cited the clinic for failing to comply with the law. And, Mills states, Pickens has also amended his bankruptcy papers to claim he owned shares in the Summit. But, Mills points out these changes only point out the need to investigate the abortion clinic’s corporate filings further and, she says, anyone can do this. Her vigilance may cause the collapse of another abortion clinic and Mills said she will not stop researching these places until each one is closed permanently.

Planned Parenthood: Abortion pills and cold pills no difference – huh?

Posted in Abortion pill, Abortion Profits, Abortionist, Planned Parenthood abortion description, Planned Parenthood abortionist, Planned Parenthood Employee with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2016 by saynsumthn

A Planned Parenthood letter claims that taking the abortion pill which kills a preborn child in the womb is no different than taking an cold pill. The 2013 letter is from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California to the California Building Standards Commission challenging building code changes that would have affected abortion facilities under California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD).

Abortion Pill  Cold Pill Planned Parenthood

According to the Planned Parenthood letter, OSHPD refused to include within the new mechanical and plumbing changes for medical facilities an exemption for primary care clinics that perform abortions where, “the treatment room is sized as an examination room.” In their letter, Planned Parenthood claimed that it would cost $2 million dollars to renovate each facility to a primary care center. In addition, the plumbing and mechanical changes proposed under the OSHPD would have cost Planned Parenthood $317,000 to provide abortion services. Planned Parenthood wanted to keep an exemption to the standards to remain as they were after abortion was made legal, claiming the, “differentiation between primary care clinics that offer early abortion services and those that do not is anachronistic and provides no basis for requiring heightened building standards.”

The largest chain of abortion clinics in the nation wanted to be sure that they could continue to build abortion facilities across the state so they could continue to serve “much needed health care services” like abortion to “low income populations.”

Excerpt of Planned Parenthood letter to OSHPD

Excerpt of Planned Parenthood letter to OSHPD

Their argument was that there the new standards would not have affected abortion risks which they claimed were minimal, writing,

    “When performed by trained clinicians, early abortions are safe and common, posing less risk of infection than many other procedures performed in primary care clinics eligible for the OSHPD 3SE classification. For medication abortions, there is no difference between taking a pill for a cold or taking one to induce an abortion. For aspiration abortions, the risk of infection is no different than the risk of insertion of a intrauterine device for an endometrial biopsy…”

Abortion Pill  Cold Pill Planned Parenthood

The idea that taking an abortion pill is paramount to taking a cold pill is ludicrous. As many articles with this publication has shown there are serious ramifications to both surgical as well as medical abortion. And, when these complications occur, it is the woman, not Planned Parenthood who is left paying the bill (see documents here). Letters from women or relatives of abortion pill users submitted to Medical News Today online testify to a host of complications that occur from the abortion pill, including death.

Holly Patterson Medical News Today

As Saynsumthn has reported before, Planned Parenthood likes to pith their abortion services as “safe and simple” but one look at a consent form they require women to sign you see the real truth. Missed abortion, blood clots, infection and even death are among the possible risks associated with medication abortion.

Image from Planned Parenthood medication abortion consent form on abortion pill

But the most disturbing part is that the purpose of an abortion pill is to end the life of a living preborn child in the womb and cannot possibly be compared to taking a pill for a cold but that does not matter to Planned Parenthood whose physicians submitted letters to stop the new regulations. Virginia Siegfried, MD medical director of Planned Parenthood of Santa Barbara, Ventura and San Luis Obispo Counties said in her letter that their Planned Parenthood center performed 1800 surgical procedures a year. Jeff Waldman, MD also wrote to the OSHPD. He served as Medical Director of Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific. In addition to being an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of California, San Francisco, Waldman was appointed as the Senior Director of Clinical Services and Medical Education for Planned Parenthood Federal of America (PPFA) in 2006.

Some of the “doctors” who signed onto this notion that abortion pills are like cold pills work for Planned Parenthood centers that profit off the parts of the babies they abort. A letter was submitted by Richard L Fischer, MD who said he was the Associate Medical Director and Physician Director of Abortion Services for the “largest Planned Parenthood Affiliate in the country.” Fischer also teaches “abortion services” at the San Francisco General Hospital. Fischer performed abortions at Planned Parenthood Mar Monte featured in the Center for Medical Progress’ (CMP) undercover videos. It was at their San Jose location that former tissue procurement technician, Holly O’Donnell described the harvesting, or “procurement,” of organs from a nearly intact late-term fetus.

Jennifer Russo, MD who earns nearly $300,000 annually as a Planned Parenthood abortionist and performs abortions up to 24 weeks as Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Orange & San Bernardino Counties also wrote about to the OSHPD. In her letter, Russo stated that she was the Health Sciences Clinical Professor in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of California, Irvine. In video obtained by CMP, Russo confirmed that her Planned Parenthood affiliate worked with the for-profit biotech company, DaVinci Biosciences, to harvest the organs of aborted fetuses to sell nationally and internationally.

Dr. Mary Gatter of Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter, caught haggling over baby parts was heard on video telling investigators from the Center for Medical Progress that she wanted a Lamborghini. The infamous Mary Gatter claimed in her letter on the California Building Standards that abortion pill complications were in part the fault of the patient writing,

    “infection rates related to abortions, which are already quite low are associated with preexisting patient conditions (such as having an STD or being immuno-compromised) or to poor surgical technique…”

Mary Gatter Abortion Risks Planned Parenthood.

According to studies, about 5-8 out of 100 women (5-8%) may need a surgical procedure to complete the abortion or to stop too much bleeding after they take the abortion pill. Despite Planned Parenthood’s allusions that abortion pills are like cold pills, women are often hospitalized from abortion pill complications. Risks associated from the abortion pill can be found at AbortionProcedures.com which states that:

    Eight percent of women (1 in 12) bleed more than 30 days, and 1 percent require hospitalization because of heavy bleeding.

Thomas James Gordon performs abortions at the Heritage Clinic for Women abortion clinic in Grand Rapids, according to pro-life activist Leisa Speheger Snow. Snow who regularly sidewalk counsels outside the clinic notified pro-life investigator Lynn Mills that Gordon had not been seen at the clinic for several days. After receiving advise from Mills, Snow located the arrest information at the Kent County Sheriff website.

According to Kent County booking number 1600779, Gordon spent 4 days in jail after his arrest on January 13, 2016. Records indicate that Gordon was charged with “disorderly person/fighting jostling.”

A search on the Michigan Department of Corrections website, reveals that Gordon was also arrested in 2011. In that incident, Gordon’s offenses included domestic violence as well as “Weapons – Firearms – Possession Under the Influence.”

Records on file with Michigan’s Internet Criminal History Online website provided to Saynsumthn by local grand rapids pro-lifers shows that Gordon may have other arrests that date back to 1991. The document shows a Thomas James Gordon with same arrest record as located on the Michigan Department of Corrections website with a long rap sheet of criminal history.

In addition, it shows misdemeanor aggravated assault charges dating back to 1991. More recently, in 2015 charges against the Gordon listed on that state document include misdemeanor domestic violence, misdemeanor operating while intoxicated.

Read the document here.

Interestingly, the Heritage Clinic for Women, which is a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) described Gordon this way on their website:

Heritage clinic for women Gordon abortion

“Thomas J. Gordon, M.D., Gynecologist, is the current Medical Director and has served in this capacity since 1986. He possesses a strong sense of dedication, professionalism and integrity in combination with his medical knowledge and superior skills.”

Perhaps they will reconsider after this information becomes public.

Hospital halts training program with late term abortion clinic which provides “fetal tissue”

A New Mexico University has halted a training program using doctors from a late term abortion clinic which provides the University with fetal tissue for research. The Albuquerque Journal newspaper has reported that the University of New Mexico (UNM), which is a publicly-funded institution, has cut ties with Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), a late-term abortion facility owned by Texas abortionist Curtis Boyd and has been the subject if a previous undercover sting conducted by Live Action. The abortionist is one of a handful of doctors in the country that performs abortions in the third trimester. He claims to be a former Baptist minister and admits that he knows he “is killing.” Southwestern Women’s has a location in Dallas and one in Albuquerque.

curtisboyd

Pro-lifers Tara and Bud Shaver who founded the pro-life group, ProtestABQ, have diligently exposed the late term clinic for years. In July, Tara Shaver filed a formal criminal complaint with the Attorney General of New Mexico asking for a complete and thorough investigation of Boyd’s clinic following revelations that Planned Parenthood was taking part in a gruesome baby parts operation. Shaver indicated Boyd was also using the body parts of babies he aborted for research. She based her allegations on documents obtained by prolifewitness.org indicating SWO staff members are, “ in fact, harvesting baby body parts for use in medical research.”

The documents included copies Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) informed consent paperwork which every abortion patient must sign indicating that Boyd and (SWO) may be using aborted babies in medical research.

2015-abortion-consent-Fetal-SWO-Curtis-Boyd

The 2015 consent form (image above) states:

    “I understand that the pregnancy tissue will be removed from my body during this procedure. The pregnancy tissue may be examined here at the Clinic and the Clinic doctors may dispose of the tissue according to the law. The pregnancy tissue may be used for medical research.”

This consent form from 2012 (image below) says, “tissue and parts will be removed during the procedure.”

2012-Abortion-Consent-Southwestern-abortion-Boys-fetal-harvest

The form goes on to state, “and I consent to their examination and their use in medical research and their disposal by the clinic and/or physician in the manner they deem appropriate.”

Protest ABQ pointed out that New Mexico has a law prohibiting the selling of body parts. But despite the law, UNMH officials admitted to the Journal that they have been accepting fetal tissue from Boyd’s clinic for a decade claiming the abortionist is not paid for the baby body parts. In addition, Dr. Richard Larson, executive vice chancellor and vice chancellor for research at the UNMHSC, the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center, told the Journal that Boyd’s clinic is the school’s only supplier of fetal tissue.

To justify the use of dead children in the late gestational age, Larson told the Journal that the “fetal tissue” they collect from Boyd will, “reduce the mortality of premature babies, especially these extremely premature babies.” Officials also claim that their grisly research will reduce the likelihood of blindness, cognitive defects and other anomalies found in newborns between 24 and 30 weeks, the same age as the babies Boyd kills. In a May 2015 letter to UNMH, the Journal reports that Boyd specified that in abortions of less than 20 weeks, his doctors use “aspiration, dilation and evacuation.” Abortions after 20 weeks involve “feticide” by injecting the fetus with the drug Digoxin, Boyd’s letter states.

Images: Albuquerque Journal

University officials still find the use of “fetal tissue” acceptable. What they are now publicly distancing themselves from is their training program with Boyd’s clinic and fellow abortionists staff who were described as “faculty” under the training agreements with UNM. The decision by UNMHSC officials to no longer send medical fellows or residents to Boyd’s clinic, follows a letter from New Mexico state Rep. Rod Montoya and other legislators who questioned top Health Sciences Center officials last July about the relationship with Boyd’s clinic and the use of “body parts” from women who have abortions there, the paper states. Montoya told the Journal that the argument could be made that the residents and fellows were helping the clinic augment its staffing for abortions.

“Initially, it had the appearance of being a transaction of sorts,” Montoya said, according to the Journal. “Of staffing in return for the body parts. That’s the appearance, and I informed them, ‘that’s how it appears to me,’ ” adding that he is concerned that there is no oversight of abortion clinics in the state.

“We know that the vast majority of New Mexicans believe we should not have a free-for-all when it comes to abortion
,” the Representative said.

In addition to the using fetal tissue for research in New Mexico a former employee of Boyd’s testified that he also had an agreement with the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center to use “large babies” for fetal research there. The former staffer, Nita Whitten, made this statement at a “Meet the Abortion Providers” workshop sponsored by the Pro-life Action League of Chicago, directed by Joe Scheidler:

“One thing that happened at the clinic that I worked at that was incredibly devastating, right before I left. Dr. Boyd had made an agreement with a doctor, and I cannot name this doctor because I just don’t think it would be wise to name him today, but he was the Director of Fetal Research at the University of Texas Health Science Center at that time. He had made an agreement with this doctor to give him our large babies for him to do fetal research on. They did this, and I believe at the time, it was against the law. I don’t know if it is now, and I’m not familiar with the legal terms because I’m not a lawyer, but I remember we were told not to tell anyone, and they only came in secret to get the babies…He had them come in and they dissected a baby for us in our lab room so we could see what they were doing with the body parts. They did that right there and everybody filed in and looked. I looked at it. I pretended like I was being brave and walked out. It made me sick.”

Bud Shaver described the University’s “fetal tissue research” program as unethical and immoral and said that he is now calling for them to cut all ties with the late term abortion doctor, “The University of New Mexico (UNM) has been caught red handed trafficking and using baby body parts for their medical research,” he told Saynsumthn.

“This is unethical and immoral which is why Protest ABQ is calling for UNM to cut all ties with Curtis Boyd at Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO) which is their sole provider of baby remains. The fact that the residency training rotation has been stopped at SWO is merely a bandaid on the bigger problem which is UNM’s overall radical abortion agenda which is what Protest ABQ is demanding UNM to halt,” he added.

Abortionist blames pro-lifers for his racist statement in “apology video” to African Americans

Posted in Abortion Racism, Abortionist, Abortionist Racist with tags , , , , , , , on December 27, 2015 by saynsumthn

Abortionist Ron Virmani was caught on tape calling babies he kills with abortion “ugly black babies” – the video of his statements went viral.

Ron Virmani

On July 26, 2012 pro-life activists paid a visit to Ron Virmani’s home asking him to repent.

Virami claims the group taped him illegally – and put it on you tube. He admits that he made the following racist statement:

“Why don’t you adopt those ugly black babies?”

After the video (above) of his exchange with pro-lifers went viral- the abortionist whose apparent views were now public – issued the following apology to “African Americans” and claimed to be a supporter of the NAACP, Obama and MLK.

Ron Virmani YouTube apology

He says in his “apology video” that the “anti-choice” (a negative term for people who oppose the brutal taking of human life in the womb) “orchestrated” this event to make him look like a “racist and a horrible person.”

I guess they must have known he would say such racist statements if he was confronted on abortion?

The only problem with Virmani’s analysis is that the doctor Ron Virmani himself is the one who said the racist statement not the “anti-choice” people. Just who is making who look “horrible” I would ask?

Instead of taking responsibility for his racist remarks – he blames the pro-lifers who videoed him.

They use every legal and illegal tactic to provoke me and get a reaction,” he says in the alleged “apology” video, claiming it was illegal for them to appear at his home.

I lost my cool in the heated exchange – that is when those words came out of my mouth,” he explains.

But, if you listen to the alleged “heated exchange”- the only one “heated” seems to be Virmani in my view.

Here is the transcript:

Virmani: “Don’t put it on the taxpayers, okay? I don’t wish to pay for the baby with my money.”

Prolifer You would rather profit off those children?”

Virmani: “No no no I am not profiting. I as a tax payer do not wish to pay for those babies to be born and brought up and kill those people in Colorado.”

Prolifers “We do – we do.”

Virmani: “Go ahead and pay for them. Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies.”

Prolifers We do – we do we do.” “If you tell us we will adopt them.”

Virmani: “Yeah go ahead – adopt those babies okay? Take them off the taxpayers money okay?”

Virmani suggests that the racist words that came out of his mouth for which he apologized for were the pro-lifers point of view and not his.

“My implication was that, it was their point of view – it is absolutely not my point of view,” he says in the “apology.”

“Unknown to me they were taping…they are relentlessly targeting me…Still these groups put this illegally made video on youtube and label me as a racist by taking my words out of context.”

For review these were Virmani’s words verbatim:

Don’t put it on the taxpayers, okay? I don’t wish to pay for the baby with my money.”

No no no I am not profiting. I as a tax payer do not wish to pay for those babies to be born and brought up and kill those people in Colorado.”

Go ahead and pay for them. Let me see you adopt one of those ugly black babies.”

Yeah go ahead – adopt those babies okay? Take them off the taxpayers money okay?”

His apology vid continues with the abortionist claiming he is “not a racist.”

Adding that he works “with African American – Spanish and Caucasian people. My patients are very divers…I have supported NAACP for a long time. I have supported President Obama since 2007. I have been a founding sponsor of Dr. MLK JR. Memorial in Washington DC. much before this incident.

“I stand here today to sincerely apologize to African American people for my words that came out in extreme anger towards those fanatics,” he said.

And he seems sincere – until you realize that although he made the racist statements in 2012 -he didn’t upload the alleged “apology” until February of 2014…but…who am I to judge. Watch for yourself:
