Michigan abortion facility open since the 1970s shuts down

A long standing abortion facility in Michigan, the Eastern Women’s Center/Women’s Center of Michigan has suddenly closed its doors with no apparent warning. Pro-life activist Lynn Mills came upon the announcement when looking at Google maps. Mills followed up by calling the abortion facility, located in Warren, where she was told by a staffer that the facility was closed and they were diverting patients to their Sterling Heights location. No other details about the closure were given to Mills.

The facility was owned by Jacob Kalo, who at one time operated five facilities in the state. After selling his Lathrup Village facility this past summer, the number now stands at three. In 2o14, that facility, the Women’s Center of Southfield, had its license suspended for several health and safety violations, according to officials.

The following year, an abortion patient from the Lathrup Village facility went public about her gruesome late term botched procedure and perforated uterus. According to a 911 transcript obtained by Mills, the abortion was committed by Kalo’s contracted late trimester abortion doctor, Reginald Sharpe.

The woman reached out to Mills and detailed during a national radio interview, how parts of her almost 24-week preborn child had been pushed through the uterine perforation, and the abortionist was having difficulty removing them. Mills told Live Action News that the woman recounted how the abortionist had been training another doctor to do the later term procedure that day.

While the patient waited for the emergency responders, she said the doctor changed his clothes and “Swiffered and cleaned up. Then, they placed an IV for the EMS people and kind of scrambled around.”

The woman stated in a radio interview, “And I saw this red bucket on the floor and – uh – what I saw was just….” The woman, unable to continue, had seen her dismembered baby, explained Mills.

Mills told Live Action News that the Warren facility building had been up for sale for several years. Pro-lifers outside Kalo’s facilities have had interesting interactions with the abortionist.

Mills regularly warns patients outside the facility about the abortionist, and according to the abortionist himself, numerous women have come forward with complaints about him since pro-lifers began warning patients with signs (shown above). In the video below, Kalo claims the accusations are false.

A July 25, 2018 review written by an alleged patient and  published on Vitals.com accuses the abortionist of conducting a pelvic exam with an “ungloved hand” as well as other inappropriate conduct:

… During my last visit when I was being brought into the exam, I wasn’t told to undress from the waist down. When Dr. Kalo and the two nurses/nursing assistants came into the room, that’s when he told me to undress. So, I had to undress in front of three people with zero privacy. He didn’t use stirrups on me and just had me lay on the exam table with my legs up. He didn’t wash his hands prior to my exam, only put one glove on, and did my entire pelvic exam with his ungloved hand. Additionally, I had the paper cloth over my waist, and this doctor literally cupped my butt after he was finished with the pelvic exam. I’m talking about the grabbing of one’s butt that your significant other does to you too. He also conducts his breast exams in a peculiar manner. Not your normal breast exam… He did not wash his hands after the pelvic and breast exams, and neither did the nurses/nursing assistants who were in the room with him. I wished I would have send [sic] something, but I was so dumbfounded that he would forget to put a glove on and grabbed my butt that I froze…

Mills said Kalo’s facilities were recently licensed by the state, which enacted regulations only a few years ago. But Kalo has been able to operate his facilities regardless, while awaiting inspections.

“He’s most likely cutting his losses now,” Mills said.

Shortly after the state passed clinic licensure regulations, Mills claims over a dozen abortion facilities closed rather than face the occasional (every three year) inspection by regulatory officials.

“This is just another victory for pro-lifers and babies,” Mills stated.

Planned Parenthood awards journalists who ignore their sexual abuse scandals

Posted in Media Bias, MeToo, Planned Parenthood Complicit Machine covering sexual abuse, Planned Parenthood media mouthpieces with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 13, 2018 by saynsumthn
media, women

Past Live Action investigations and court cases have demonstrated Planned Parenthood‘s willingness to cover for child sexual predators and abusers, even returning victims to their abusers and failing to report underage pregnancies or suspected sexual abuse to authorities. This taxpayer-funded organization, receiving half a billion dollars in these funds annually, should be called to account, especially in a society so aware of sexual assault. So, why is Planned Parenthood’s corruption in this area being silenced by politicians, media and Hollywood alike?

It is possible that these Planned Parenthood-friendly groups know but choose to say nothing, because, like the New York Times recently discovered with Harvey Weinstein, Planned Parenthood has a network of complicit “bodyguards,” so to speak, protecting the organization from damaging scrutiny.

And yet, grueling testimonies and police reports of actual criminal cases in which Planned Parenthood patients, victimized by sexual abuse and rape and then taken for abortions, are available to read at Live Action News (herehere, and here).

Planned Parenthood-covers child sexual abuse

 

The media has repeatedly been caught in Planned Parenthood’s web of lies — though willingly, it seems, as many pro-choice “journalists” allow their support of abortion to keep them from doing real investigative reporting. Even in the face of proof, Planned Parenthood’s media complicity machine remains quiet, resulting in sexual abuse victims being forgotten.

In one example, physician and HLN host Dr. Drew Pinsky, a former employee of Planned Parenthood, came to Planned Parenthood’s defense when pro-lifers made allegations that the abortion corporation covered up child sexual abuse. Rather than do his own investigation, Dr. Drew lashed out at Alliance Defending Freedom’s (ADF) Director of Alliance Relations. Watch the exchange in the video below, where ADF includes the very “evidence” Dr. Drew failed to find on his own:

Dr. Drew admitted on his show that he worked for Planned Parenthood… hardly a non-biased reporting source. He said, “I was there. We were working for Planned Parenthood to create an environment where young women could feel safe….”

Safe? I don’t think so, Dr. Drew!

Planned Parenthood regularly rewards the media complicity machine by “honoring” them with the “Media Excellence” and “Maggie Awards.”

1. Irin Carmon – national reporter and Planned Parenthood awardee

Carmon is one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in Media and was a national reporter at MSNBC and NBC News. Yet, this “journalist” was recently highlighted at a Planned Parenthood event and has been awarded by the abortion corporation. To date, she has failed to report the way Planned Parenthood covers for child sexual predators.

And she is not alone.

The Planned Parenthood Federation of America bestowed Media Excellence Awards to 13 journalists during its 2016 National Conference Gala. Such as…

2. Amy Goodman – executive producer and Planned Parenthood awardee

Goodman, executive producer of Democracy NOW, received the “highest honor” from Planned Parenthood, according to Katie Yoder at NewsBusters.

Goodman, who regularly defends Planned Parenthood, has never spoken out about the organization’s covering of sexual assault crimes.

3. Michelle Goldberg – columnist and Planned Parenthood board member

Michelle Goldberg became an Op-Ed columnist for The New York Times in 2017. Previously, she was a columnist at Slate, and a radio and TV commentator appearing in The New Yorker, Newsweek, The Nation, The New Republic, The Guardian and other publications. She was also a keynote speaker for Planned Parenthood, attended several other Planned Parenthood events, and sat on the board of Southwest & Central Florida Planned Parenthood. No bias here, huh?

Rather than stand with sexual assault victims and expose Planned Parenthood, Goldberg defends them.

4. Linda Greenhouse – Pulitzer prize winner and Planned Parenthood keynote speaker

Greenhouse is a New York Times journalist who has also keynoted for Planned Parenthood Houston.

 

Linda Greenhouse keynote for Planned Parenthood

According to a report by the Washington Post, Greenhouse wrote in her book “Just a Journalist: On the Press, Life and the Spaces Between,” that she regularly donates to Planned Parenthood and wasn’t content to just allow Planned Parenthood to deduct a monthly contribution from her bank account:

It was important to me to write a check every month and sign my name. It was the signature of a citizen. The stories that appeared under my byline, on abortion and all other subjects, were the work of a journalist. If anyone ever thought those failed to measure up to professional standards, they never told me or anyone else.

One look at Greenhouse’s writings should tell you all you need to know about whether her pro-abortion ideology informs her journalism.

5. Anna Quindlen – Pulitzer prize winner and Planned Parenthood Federation of America board member

Quindlen is a former columnist at The New York Times who won the Pulitzer Prize for journalism. She recently attended PP’s 100th gala and sits on the Planned Parenthood Federation of America Board. Need I say more?

Myers was the keynote speaker at a Florida Planned Parenthood event. According to HuffPo, Myers is a political analyst, commentator and contributing editor to Vanity Fair, and lecturer on politics. After leaving her position as White House Press Secretary under President Clinton, Myers took a spot on CNBC political talk show, “Equal Time.” She brags that her work has appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times, Time Magazine, O, the Oprah Magazine, the Washington Post, Politico and the Los Angeles Times.

Interestingly, none of that “work” includes any real serious investigations into Planned Parenthood.

In 2014, Tucker, along with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Glamour Magazine, was “honored” by Planned Parenthood.

And none of them have spoken out about any of Planned Parenthood’s scandals other than to defend them.

The list goes on and on.

Media elites are more eager to prop up Planned Parenthood than courageously take the side of young sexual abuse victims to expose Planned Parenthood. We can only hope that one day, light will shine on Planned Parenthood and the media complicity machine that protects them.

Planned Parenthood, sexual abuse enabler, joins #MeToo against Trump

Posted in Cecile Richards, MeToo, Planned Parenthood CEO, Tarana Burke with tags , , , , , , on February 14, 2018 by saynsumthn

Planned Parenthood and the pro-abortion National Organization for Women (NOW) were among the top sponsors of this month’s State of Our Union response, which included a speech from Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards. Planned Parenthood is America’s number one abortion provider, and Richards has been at the helm for the past decade. She recently announced that she will be stepping down from that position this year. Richards is a political organizer who presumes to speak as the voice for all women. But the very idea of speaking for all women is ridiculous, given the changing culture on abortion and the virtual army of pro-life women opposing Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood and NOW sponsor State of Our Union

To date, Richards is responsible for presiding over the deaths of millions of preborn babies. She has led Planned Parenthood through scandal after scandal, including the deliberate cover-up of child sexual abuse, Medicaid fraud accusations, failing to protect the privacy of patients, and harvesting aborted baby body parts for “compensation,” to name a few.

On the day of President’s Trump 2018 State of the Union Address, Richards joined Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), Alicia Garza, cofounder of #BlackLivesMatter, and others at an event they dubbed “The State of Our Union,” (SOOU), to organize against the president and the Republican majority. The press release, published by The People’s Action, read in part:

While President Trump delivers his first State of the Union address on Tuesday, leading women activists from throughout the country are hosting an alternative event in Washington, D.C. – The State of Our Union – to provide our voice and vision for the country, and to address and defeat persistent gender inequality and racism.

People’s Action is joining other national leaders including Ai-jen Poo (National Domestic Workers Alliance), Tarana Burke (Girls for Gender Equity and ‘MeToo’ movement), Mónica Ramirez (National Farmworker Women’s Alliance), Cecile Richards of Planned Parenthood, Kristin Rowe Finkbeiner of MomsRising, Arisha Hatch of Color of Change, along with Congressional champions like Pramila Jayapal, to lift up the stories and voices of our communities.

Organizers boldly praised Planned Parenthood, ignoring the fact that it was founded by Margaret Sanger, a eugenicist who once bragged about her meeting with members of the Klu Klux Klan. To date, Planned Parenthood “honors” Sanger, calling her a hero. Some Planned Parenthood centers still proudly wear Sanger’s name. In addition, Planned Parenthood’s top award is named after Margaret Sanger.

Live Action News has repeatedly documented how Planned Parenthood had direct ties to the eugenics movement, sharing board members between the organizations, and even receiving free rent from eugenics organizations.

Prior to the State of Our Union event, Richards appeared on MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell show to discuss efforts to  resist president Trump — specifically, his pro-life policies. Richards, who receives a million dollar salary from Planned Parenthood, has now set her sights on the 2018 Congressional elections.

“I think it is really important not to forget, as we’re discussing the way forward, is that there’s a whole other branch of Government – that’s the US Congress, that we have to focus on. The things that they have already pledged to do – you know. Paul Ryan, practically the first day, saying that they were going to defund Planned Parenthood….”

After hearing from several women, many who recounted emotional stories, the group at the SOOU welcomed Cecile Richards to give the “women’s response.”

Image: Cecile Richards State of Our Union event

Richards began her speech by claiming that the Trump administration “wants to divide us.” She proclaimed, “It’s not that women haven’t been speaking out… but now, we have found a new frequency and folks are finally listening — alright — and we are not giving it up.”

That “new frequency” is due in part to voices from the #MeToo movement, arising to denounce sexual abuse and harassment. Richards wasted little time inserting herself into that movement to push Planned Parenthood’s political agenda, despite the abortion corporation’s own repeated history of covering up sexual abuse.

Despite numerous criminal cases documenting how sexual assault victims were not protected by Planned Parenthood but instead were returned to sexual predators, some women aren’t listening. The “State of Our Union” event was organized in part by #MeToo founder, Tarana Burke, who recently received an awardfrom Planned Parenthood. And what did Burke have to say about the event? “I could not be more excited and proud to…be a part of this evening…Standing in solidarity with these women, and organizations that are represented tonight.” As for the scandals of Planned Parenthood’s continued victimization of sexual abuse victims: silence.

Burke said the event was organized as a deliberate effort to not attend the president’s speech at the Capitol building.  Burke claimed women’s voices have not been heard. She spoke of a “systemic dismantling of so many issues that affect women,” describing the “collective power” of women to work across “industries and issues.”

She then went on to tout the “power” of Planned Parenthood, which receives over half a billion dollars a year from taxpayers. “What does it look like when you activate the power of the Women’s March and Planned Parenthood in the fight for low wage earners?” Burke asked.

Tarana Burke toutes power of Planned Parenthood

Burke noted the fight against sexual harassment and violence, stating passionately that the “trauma of sexual violence is probably one of the most devastating things a person can experience,” yet, she failed to call out Planned Parenthood for its systemic enabling of child sexual abuse.

“My name is Tarana Burke and I believe in our union. And, I pledge to stand for survivors of sexual violence from all walks of life. For the rest of my life,” Burke vowed.

But, sadly, Planned Parenthood Action Fund was one of the group’s host committee members and according to the MC, “has been working so hard to make sure this event was a success.”

Richards told the group that “Women have beaten the odds,” in part because “Planned Parenthood’s doors are open all across the United States of America.”

But in truth, Planned Parenthood has been losing patients for years, and has been closing centers in record numbers. In 2016, Planned Parenthood claims to have served 2.4 million patients — a near 23 percent drop from the 3.1 million they boasted just ten years ago in 2006. And, while Planned Parenthood’s patients are steadily declining, federally funded health centers, as identified by the federal Health Resources and Services Administration, served nearly 26 million patients in 2016 alone.

But while Planned Parenthood is still receiving the full funding of the government despite its plummeting patients, Richards blamed Trump and Congress for allegedly limiting women’s access to “cancer screenings and birth control.” It’s just not true: According to Planned Parenthood’s own reports, Planned Parenthood is the one reducing those services for women, not Trump or Congress.

Cancer screenings at Planned Parenthood have plunged 67 percent since 2006, from 2,007,371 screenings to just 660,777 in 2016. Even contraceptive services there have dropped by more than 32 percent (3,989,474 in 2006 to 2,701,866 in 2016). And this decline occurred all while government funding for Planned Parenthood was skyrocketing. These are Planned Parenthood’s own reported numbers. But apparently Richards is counting on the idea that women will believe whatever lies she tells them.

During her speech, Richards touted the right to abortion. “You know what,” Richards said, “If the Government won’t change – we will change the Government,” Richards added, as if this were her first attempt to use her taxpayer-funded organization’s power in politics. In fact, Richards vocally and enthusiastically supported Hillary Clinton’s failed 2016 run for President and some believe it failed due to Richard’s support.

“Women are the most powerful political force in this country,” Richards said, knowing that the vast majority of women support abortion restrictions, unlike Planned Parenthood. Richards then obliviously claimed that she was joining the group of women to transform the nation into a place where “everyone has the freedom and opportunity to live their best life.”

Tragically, not all women are free to life their best life, and that’s thanks to Richards and her friends in the abortion industry. They target millions of preborn females for wholesale slaughter in the womb. In addition, there are numerous women scarred from the effects of abortion, including some who have died after their so-called “safe and legal” abortions at Planned Parenthood.

These are a few of the forgotten women Richards left out.
