Planned Parenthood with Expired License Calls Ambulance for Patient Suffering Seizures

By Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue where this article originally appeared.

Cincinnati, OH — An ambulance responded to a medical emergency at the Mt. Auburn Health Center Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Cincinnati, Ohio, on Thursday, July 27, 2017.

An emergency radio dispatch recording, obtained by Operation Rescue, indicated that a 20-year old pregnant woman was suffering a seizure. A fire unit, Engine 32, and Medic 3 (ambulance) were dispatched to the Planned Parenthood facility located on Mt. Auburn Avenue.

According to witnesses on the scene, the fire unit was first to arrive at 10:36 a.m., followed three minutes later by the Medic 3 ambulance.

After about 10 minutes, a conscious woman was brought out on a gurney and loaded into the ambulance for transport to a nearby hospital emergency room.

This is the twenty-sixth medical emergency at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility that has been reported to Operation Rescue so far in 2017 – already far ahead of the Planned Parenthood emergencies recorded in 2016 when there were 28 emergencies reported over the entire year.

“At this time last year, we had recorded only 14 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities. 2017 looks like it will be a record-setting year, but that certainly not the kind of record we want anyone to set,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “However, we know we don’t hear about every incident, so we know the number of women suffering life-threatening abortion complications is actually much higher.”

The facility came under fire for not having a valid hospital transfer agreement, a requirement for licensing as an Ambulatory Surgical Facility in Ohio. Last year, the Ohio Department of Health issued Planned Parenthood a new ASF license after it dropped earlier efforts to revoke it.

That license expired on May 31, 2017. Nevertheless, Planned Parenthood continues operating — and placing the lives of women in danger — with the expired license.

This screenshot of Planned Parenthood’s facility license page shows they have been operating on an expired ASF license.

“Given that this facility was operating under an expired facility license at the time of the emergency, this Planned Parenthood should be closed pending a thorough review by the Department of Health,” said Newman.

A 911 recording obtained by Operation Rescue gave details of a very similar medical emergency at the Cincinnati Planned Parenthood in 2015. ( watch below)

Other medical emergencies at that facility were discovered in Ohio Health Department documents leaked to Operation Rescue.

In November 2016, Operation Rescue reported on a number of visits made by the city sewer department to the Planned Parenthood abortion business, which was experiencing backed up drains – a problem that has since persisted.

23 health violations at Georgia Planned Parenthood while Ohio investigates fetal disposal

A local media outlet in Georgia combed through five years of state health inspections from local abortion clinics and found several disturbing violations. WSBTV, channel 2, said they spent a month looking at the health documents after the release of undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation.

State inspections Georgia Abortion

In their investigative report, after they learned that these abortion facilities were not improperly disposing of aborted babies, Channel 2 said they wanted to see exactly what the state had found after performing a complete inspection of abortion facilities. They also wanted to know how often the inspections are done. So, they said the TV station filed an open records report with the state asking for state inspection reports of licensed abortion clinics dating back five years.

What WSBTV discovered would horrify the public. According to their report, the following violations were documented during state health inspections of these so-called “safe and legal” abortion facilities:

    Expired Medications and medical instruments
    Unsterilized equipment
    Sterile and nonsterile supplies stored in the same room
    The vent in a biohazard room taped off with cardboard
    Stirrups wrapped in duck tape
    Iodine swabs used to prevent wound infections expired by 10 years
    Soiled linens in surgical rooms to name a few.

Planned Parenthood 14 violations abortion georgia

In addition, the TV station discovered that one of the abortion clinics cited by the state was a Planned Parenthood facility located in Augusta. According to their findings, that Planned Parenthood abortion clinic had 23 health or safety violations in one year alone and was fined by the state. However, they also discovered that health inspectors did not return to the Planned Parenthood abortion center to see if the violations had been corrected until two years later.

Virginia Gallaway with the Faith and Freedom Coalition told channel 2 that she was shocked because restaurants were inspected more frequently than abortion clinics.

Abortion CLinic Georgia

Interestingly, Staci Fox, Planned Parenthood’s Southeast CEO which heads the Planned Parenthood mentioned in the report, claimed the inspections might be deceiving because of an unsubstantiated bias against them. But, this kind of excuse is simply a PR move for Planned Parenthood.

Meanwhile, Ohio’s attorney general has announced that three of the state’s Planned Parenthood clinics (Bedford Heights, Cincinnati, and Columbus) have been illegally disposing of the bodies of aborted babies by throwing them in landfills. “Disposing of aborted fetuses from an abortion by sending them to a landfill is callous and completely inhumane,” Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said in a news release. “It is important the public be aware that these practices are taking place at these Ohio facilities.”

But, Stephanie Kight, president and chief executive officer of Planned Parenthood Advocates of Ohio
has denied the allegation telling Reuters that, “Planned Parenthood contracts with vendors to handle fetal tissue in a respectful manner and in accordance with the law”.

DeWine began the investigation to determine whether fetal tissue was selling fetal tissue, or abortion trafficking, in violation of Ohio law. Investigators requested documents and financial records from Planned Parenthood organizations as well as companies they contracted with. Although the investigation did not find that fetal tissue was sold by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Ohio, the investigation did show that the disposal methods documented by the Planned Parenthood affiliates violate Ohio Administrative law, which requires that a “fetus shall be disposed of in a humane manner.”

A press statement released Friday by the Ohio AG named the specifics:

    All three Ohio Planned Parenthood affiliates have sent fetal remains to companies which disposed of the fetuses in landfills.
    Additionally, the Planned Parenthood facility in Bedford Heights stated it uses only one company for disposal. However, that company stated to investigators it does not accept fetal remains for disposal as a corporate policy.

Planned Parenthoos dispose fetuses landfill

13ABC Action gave additional details:

    “Planned Parenthood said some fetal tissue is donated for medical research, but such donations are illegal in Ohio. A Planned Parenthood state leader has said no donation program exists here.

    “During DeWine’s investigation of the tissue sale issue, he said his office found that Marietta, Ohio-based Accu Medical Waste Service, Inc., a waste disposal company used by Planned Parenthood affiliates in Cincinnati and Columbus, sent the remains to a Kentucky landfill.

    “An Accu Medical official told DeWine’s office that his company uses a standard treatment for biological waste called “autoclave” involving a high-pressure steam treatment to kill infectious material.

    The investigation determined that fetal remains taken by Lake Forest, Illinois-based Stericycle from a third Planned Parenthood affiliate, in Bedford Heights in suburban Cleveland, ended up in a different landfill. DeWine’s office didn’t identify that landfill.

    “Kight referred questions on disposal to the companies. A man who answered the phone at Accu Medical Waste Service who wouldn’t give his name said all employees had been instructed not to comment.

    Stericycle said in a statement it has a long-standing policy against accepting fetal remains. DeWine’s office said Planned Parenthood uses the company to dispose of its biological waste including aborted fetuses.”

DeWine said that he has referred his investigative findings to the Ohio Department of Health for further action.

Inspectors find aborted babies inside Planned Parenthood POC freezer

An unannounced inspection by state health investigators which resulted in the suspension of a South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility this past summer also revealed how aborted babies were stored in a biohazard freezer. The horrific details, captured in a SC state health inspection report are eerily similar to those captured by the Center for Medical Progress while undercover at a Houston Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

Planned-Parenthood-Gulf-Coast-freezer

In that video, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) “buyers” were taken into Planned Parenthood’s back pathology room where they ask to view any “fresh specimens” i.e. aborted babies. With a BIG smile on her face, the Planned Parenthood assistant told CMP, “We had a really long day and they are all mixed up in a bag,” she states as she giggles. And then they tell CMP that they keep the “specimens” frozen.

SC Inspection Planned Parenthood fetal tissue

The inspection report from the State of South Carolina lays out a similar system where aborted children are kept in a freezer at a Planned Parenthood in Columbia. The gruesome details are documented in the August 31,2015 on site inspection the Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing performed at Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic on Middleburg Drive.

Planned Parenthood south carolina

The unannounced inspection at the Columbia Planned Parenthood was requested by Governor Nikki Haley and conducted by the South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing and Bureau of Land and Waste Management to determine compliance with state laws.

During the walk through of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic investigators identified two locations where biohazard waste was stored. The first one, although it contained bio-hazardous waste, did not contain any fetal tissue. But, when inspectors asked if there were any other places where “POC’s” or products of conception were kept, Planned Parenthood staff replied, “Yes, in the POC room in the freezer.”

South Carolina Planned Parenthood abortion freezer inspection fetal tissue

According to the document obtained by Saynsumthn, inspectors followed the Planned Parenthood staff in the “POC room” and opened the “upright freezer which had a biohazard sticker in the top right hand corner.” Inside the freezer were several metal shelves lined with blue disposable pads. One shelf had a large red plastic biohazard bag that was tied with numerous (in excess of 20) smaller red plastic bags, the report stated.

Planned Parenthood staffers told inspectors that “individual products of conception” or as pro-lifers rightly describe them, aborted preborn children, are placed in a smaller red biohazard bag after examination by the physician i.e. abortionist. They are then placed in the large bag in the freezer, the inspection report notes.

Inspectors then asked Planned Parenthood staffers what the next step would be for the “fetal tissue” or preborn aborted children in the freezer. Abortion clinic staffers told inspectors that on the day of “medical waste” “pick up” that the large bag would be placed in a cardboard box in the “biohazard room” and sealed and labeled where a manifest would be generated. It would then be passed off to the “transporter” or the medical waste pick up company.

The storing of aborted children in freezers until they can be “transported” was also described in detail by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast when, in an unprecedented move CMP undercover investigators were able to film what takes place in these “POC labs.” A transcript of an April 9, 2015 conversation CMP had with Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast read in part:

    “After the physician has confirmed the tissue correlates with gestational age, tissue is placed in a biohazard container and gets discarded into a single container and then is placed in the freezer. Anything after 16 weeks is immediately placed in the freezer after the procedure. And it is all sent away once a week for incineration. So that’s kind of the scope.”

In another portion of the conversation the Planned Parenthood staffer told CMP:

    “Under a sample acquisition protocol where everyone that’s coming in gets approached, not just African-American or whatever, everyone gets approached about donating fetal tissue, maybe we can even think, and I recognize that a lot of this has to be fresh, but maybe even banking, a tissue banking part, that we have it built into the consent form-protocol-in the event that you don’t have a use-first trimester, you don’t have a use for it currently, you saw the refrigerator freezer space we have, we have plenty of space. We can store it, and then if you have a need, because some researchers start with frozen specimens or preserved specimens first, we could look at doing that as well.”

Planned Parenthood inspection Jenny Black

The storing of aborted babies inside freezers, as creepy as it sounds, does not appear to be a violation of health laws.

However, in addition to the way the Columbia, South Carolina Planned Parenthood stored the aborted fetuses, the document did list a host of health violations found by the South Carolina State Health Inspectors and detailed them in a September 11, 2015 letter addressed to Planned Parenthood CEO Jenny Black.

Those violations include the following:

    Documentation on personal background information on 2 staff members was not available for review.
    The facility did not have documentation on training in infection control for 2 staff members.
    The facility did not comply with a provision of the Women’s Right to Know Act…In 5 of 25 medical records reviewed, the record documented that an abortion was performed sooner than the required 60 minutes after an ultrasound.
    Planned Parenthood did not adhere to and follow provisions for tissue examination and disposal and did not have a written policy and procedure regarding registration of fetal death or death certificates.
    Planned Parenthood’s emergency drug cart did not have a listing of contents on the cart.
    Expired medications were stored in the patient care areas and pharmacy.
    Products of conception resulting from abortion procedures were not managed and properly disposed of by incineration according to regulations.
    Several abortion records involving minors did not include the names of their mother or father.
    In 25 out of 25 of the medical records reviewed by inspectors, the names of clinical assistants in attendance during abortion procedures was not documented in the record.
    In 4 of the 25 medical records reviewed, abortions were not reported to the Office of Vital Records within the required 7 days but were reported between 13 and 33 days. And in one of the records reviewed, the record did not document that the abortion was reported at all.
    Sterile gloves were stored and mixed with non-sterile supplies including non-sterile examination gloves .
    Waste meeting the definition of “infectious waste” was not managed and properly disposed of by incineration.

Planned Parenthood COuth Atlantic abortion clinic suspended

State officials then suspended the license of the South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility. Despite previous claims from CEO Jenny Black that monetary penalties were not issued, the documents shows that Planned Parenthood was fined $7500.00 and ordered to submit a plan of correction.

According to the Island Packet:

    Planned Parenthood paid a $7,500 penalty for 21 cited violations and submitted correction plans by the Sept. 28 deadline but asked DHEC to reconsider some of the violations, putting the suspension on hold…DHEC cleared Planned Parenthood’s Columbia clinic on Nov. 6, and the organization withdrew its request, Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Heigel said.

Planned Parenthood Fined for Health and Safety Violations – actions taken against more Abortion clinics

Ohio Right to Life has issued this release:

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Today, Ohio Right to Life obtained documentation of enforcement actions against three abortion facilities by the Ohio Department of Health. Among them is a $25,000 fine issued to Planned Parenthood of Bedford Heights due to severe violations of health and safety standards. Such violations include the facility’s failure to adhere to infection control policies, including exposed urine samples. Other health inspector discoveries include:

no experienced director of nursing on staff
improper storage of eight containers of human tissue
3-month overdue follow-up documentation for hospitalized abortion patient with perforated uterus
incomplete documentation for abortion patient who was hospitalized for bleeding
use of expired and undocumented chemicals and equipment used on surgical suction hoses

Further enforcement actions by the health department were taken against Northeast Ohio Women’s Center, which was denied a license to practice surgical abortions due to multiple health and safety violations, including failure to properly train staff, lack of a director of nursing, and expired medications and pregnancy tests.

PP Bedford Heights

“We’re deeply concerned, though admittedly unsurprised, that multiple abortion facilities are jeopardizing the lives and health of women,” said Mike Gonidakis, president of Ohio Right to Life. “The real war on women is being waged everyday in these unsafe and unsanitary abortion mills. These reports shock the conscience and reaffirm our resolve to protect life from Ohio’s abortion industry.”

This week, ODH also issued an administrative order to close the last remaining abortion facility in Toledo. Capital Care Network of Toledo (CCN) was unable to secure a transfer agreement with any Toledo-area hospital which caused health officials to begin the closure process last year. CCN attempted to enter into a transfer agreement with an out-of-state hospital at the University of Michigan. Because the hospital is located 52 miles away from CCN, the Department of Health ruled that it does not meet health and safety standards.

Capital Care Network of Toledo

“Without Capital Care Network, life in Toledo will be safer for women and children” said Gonidakis. “This week, our government assured all of us that women’s health and patient safety is priority number one. It is deeply troubling that some people are advocating for this illegal operation to remain open, putting women’s lives at risk.”

Planned Parenthood: Abnormal bleeding after surgical abortion not unusual nor unanticipated

Planned Parenthood Keystone had a novel excuse for failing to report the ambulance transfer of a patient to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, as required by law.

plannedparenthoodoffice8 Orange CA 2009 (1)

When DOH inspected Planned Parenthood Keystone’s Allentown abortion clinic on February 27, 2014, it was surprised to learn a patient had begun hemorrhaging after her abortion on March 15, 2013, and taken to the hospital by ambulance.

This was a surprising because DOH is supposed to get a report from any medical facility within 24 hours after such an occurrence, and it didn’t in this case.

Planned Parenthood’s excuse?

Its Patient Safety Officer and Associate Medical Director “determined that this event did not constitute a serious event or incident…. Abnormal bleeding after a surgical abortion is not unusual nor is it unanticipated,” quoting from the report.

PP Allentown Keystone

The Health Department report reads: the patient presented to the facility on March 15, 2013, for an elective in-clinic abortion. CF1 performed internal suction and documented no products of conception were found. CF1 requested an ultrasound be performed. Further review revealed CF1 documented the patient’s uterus was empty. CF1 completed a second internal suction of the patient’s uterus. CF1 documented no products of conception were found and requested a second ultrasound be performed. CF1 documented no products of conception were found. Continued review of MR6 revealed the patient began with excessive bleeding with noticeable large clots. CF1 instructed CF2 to administer Methergine (medication used to manage hemorrhage) 0.2 milligrams (mg) intramuscularly (IM). The patient’s excessive bleeding continued and CF1 instructed EMP3 to call 911 to request ambulance transport of MR6 to the hospital’s emergency department (ED).

Interview with EMP2 and EMP3 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:00 PM confirmed CF1 performed internal suction two times on MR6, and each time there were no products of
conception found. Continued interview confirmed the patient had excessive bleeding, was given Methergine, and transferred to the hospital ED for excessive bleeding following an in-clinic abortion.

A request was made of EMP1 and EMP2 on February 27, 2014, for the facility’s internal investigation and the facility’s report of MR6’s transfer from the facility to an acute care hospital emergency department. No investigation or facility report to the Department or Patient Safety Authority were provided. Phone interview with EMP1 on February 27, 2014, at approximately 2:15 PM revealed if the facility did submit this occurrence, it would have been submitted as an incident and not a serious event.”

In 2013, Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn & Bucks County and Planned Parenthood of Central Pennsylvania merged and the new entity is called Planned Parenthood Keystone.

According to their website, Planned Parenthood Keystone (PPKey) serves 37 counties in Pennsylvania

According to a report they uploaded online the Planned Parenthood of Northeast, Mid-Penn, and Bucks County Planned Parenthood Central medical director is James Anasti, MD.

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.

Timothy Liveright Screen_Shot_2013-06-03_at_12.23.36_PM-240x171State officials have reached a consent agreement in a complaint filed against an abortion doctor who performed abortions at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington.

The complaint filed in May said Dr. Timothy Liveright represented a “clear and immediate danger to the public.” It accused him of engaging in multiple acts of incompetence and negligence in performing abortions on five patients in February and March of this year.

A hearing on the complaint was scheduled for Friday but was canceled after Liveright signed a consent agreement drafted by the attorney general’s office.

_______________________

TIMOTHY FOUCH LIVERIGHT currently is licensed to practice only in Pennsylvania, where he said he has worked at Planned Parenthood in West Chester and clinics in Philadelphia. He is not currently practicing medicine there, he said.

He once worked for Planned Parenthood in Trenton, N.J., Liveright said, but he let his license expire in 2011. Agency officials in those states would not comment on Liveright. And Third Age has him listed as Planned Parenthood of the Mercer Area.

And the state of California has him listed there as license. Actually according to Healthgrades, Liveright is working at Planned Parenthood, San Jose if you match the addresses at both websites.

815 Eddy St Ste 100 San Francisco, CA 94109 Shows a Super Pages listing for Planned Parenthood San Francisco formerly known as Planned Parenthood Golden Gate.

In Florida his license has been voided.

By his own account, Timothy Liveright has performed about 50,000 abortions across the country over nearly three-plus decades, most recently for Planned Parenthood of Delaware.

He even played an abortion doctor in a 2010 movie starring Hollywood heavyweights Ryan Gosling and Michelle Williams.

Liveright, 68, found himself under scrutiny in Delaware as nurses criticized his practices and behavior during a packed state Senate hearing, and state officials formally accused him of incompetence and misconduct that put patients in danger.

He now lives on a farm near Allentown, Pa., and for the past few years Liveright flew his single-engine plane to Delaware about once a week to work at clinics in Wilmington and Dover. He’d perform as many as 30 abortions a day, he said, making about $60 per procedure and from $5,000 to $10,000 a month, depending on demand.

Liveright’s work in Delaware came to an abrupt end in April after the state began a second round of investigations in less than a year into complaints that his practices were sloppy and his behavior strange.

Liveright said he often worked for nonprofits and before becoming an abortionist had treated the homeless and patients with AIDS, explaining that he was an advocate of “social medicine.”

When he came to Delaware in late 2002, he worked for Planned Parenthood. He said the experience was rewarding but he let his license lapse in 2005 while he worked for their clinics in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. “I love the organization,” he said.

He returned to Delaware in 2009 after renewing his license, and usually flew every Friday to New Castle County Airport for a day of work at the Wilmington clinic.

It was during this period that he made a brief appearance in the movie, “Blue Valentine,” playing an abortionist. In his one scene, Liveright begins giving the character played by Michelle Williams an abortion, but she decides she doesn’t want to go through with it and leaves the treatment room.

During his second stint in Delaware, Liveright said, Planned Parenthood was beset by “a rather tumultuous administrative set of headaches.”

The Wilmington clinic’s practices also left much to be desired, he said. “I’ve been around, and this place was definitely less well-organized than other places I’ve been,” he said. “A lot of it was management was not at the top of their game.”

Liveright also questioned the judgment of state regulators who investigated allegations by former clinic nurses Joyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich about him and the clinic. They cleared him late last year of any wrongdoing but now consider him a danger, an action he labeled “double jeopardy.”

BACKSTORY:

The Delaware Attorney General’s Office filed the complaint against former Planned Parenthood abortion doctor Timothy F. Liveright, citing him for unprofessional, incompetent and negligent conduct during his practice at the Wilmington clinic and calling him a “clear and immediate danger to the public.”

Contacted by phone Thursday evening, Liveright, 68, said such charges were “scandalous” for the state to make.

Liveright, who last month voluntarily surrendered his license to practice medicine in Delaware, performed abortions at the Planned Parenthood clinic on Shipley Street. He called the complaint “double jeopardy,” noting that similar complaints were investigated and dismissed last fall.

“It’s pure bullshit,” he said. “They’re jumping on whatever they can jump on. I don’t know what their agenda is, but I don’t think I’m a danger to the public.”

Clinic PP DE

According to the complaint, Liveright was reprimanded by Planned Parenthood of Delaware for “unprofessional, disrespectful, and inappropriate” conduct that included “yelling, screaming, and cursing” in front of employees and patients and sexual harassment of female employees.

LiverightLiveright 2

At the time, Collins said the board has several sanctions available, including license revocation, a fine, suspension, probation and reprimand.

Specifically, the complaint cited Liveright for:

• Oversedating patients

• Performing unnecessary suction procedures

• Failing to properly assess a patient’s airway, lungs and heart prior to administering sedation

• Failing to properly assess patients

• Failing to properly administer oxygen

• Failing to adequately document procedures and results of procedures in patient charts

• Failing to consider alternative treatments

• Causing at least one perforation during surgery

• Failing to properly supervise resident physicians during procedures

• Failing to act with due competence and diligence to avoid unnecessary complications, resulting in patients requiring emergency hospital treatment

The state started the investigation earlier this year when several emergencies arose after abortions Liveright performed at the Wilmington clinic. A small cadre of anti-abortion protesters witnessed the arrival of ambulances and raised questions. Two former Planned Parenthood nurses then came forward with complaints they had filed in 2012 against the doctor and clinic.

Liveright left the staff of Planned Parenthood in late March. In April, he sent a letter to the Division of Professional Regulation, saying he had “retired from practicing medicine in Delaware and [had] no intentions of ever seeking practice there in the future,” according to the complaint.

Liveright has performed abortions in several states across the country, but several of those medical licenses are no longer in effect. He still is licensed to practice in Pennsylvania. When asked if he was practicing there, Liveright said, “None of your business.”

BACK STORY HERE

Timothy Liverrite

PP Baltimore Jane Mitchel WDelaware Planned Parenthood staffer RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, , who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics for 3-1/2 months in 2012, spoke to Jill Stanek and revealed many troubling aspects of the abortion clinic she walked out of.

Jane claims she sent documentation and letters of complaint about the abortion clinic to Planned Parenthood who ignored them.

Other incidents, excerpted from a letter Jane wrote to her bosses (with slight grammatical editing):

“During a procedure that another doctor was performing, Dr. Liveright entered the room to see how things were proceeding. The doctors had a conversation regarding the faulty equipment in front of the patient…. After the doctors finished their conversation, Dr. Liveright struck the patient’s right lateral thigh with force with his opened hand, stating ‘BREATHE!’ The patient, shocked and puzzled, looked at me as if to say, ‘What is he doing?’ I suggested that Dr. Liveright must have some sort of unusual technique to help distract patients from the discomfort of the procedure. The patient looked at me, rolled her eyes, held my hand tight, and tried to relax and concentrate on her breathing. That is when Dr. Liveright peeks around the curtain (as he had not exited the room) and plays peek-a-boo with the patient. The patient then rolls her eyes and shakes her head stating, ‘He’s not right.’ The entire time this is happening, the other doctor is continuing to dilate the patient! I then stated, ‘Goodbye Dr. Liveright,’ as I pulled the curtain around his head….”

“Sexual harassment: I have noted Dr. Liveright inappropriately look up and down patients as well as staff members in a sexual kind of way. He actually stands back with a grin and slowly directs his eyes up and down a patient’s body.”

Jayne said management told her Liveright had previously been disciplined for sexual harassment against a staff member.

Jayne’s letter also described Liveright as a racist in a bizarre incident with an African-American patient:

Dr. Liveright enters the room… and states… ‘Did you know that the Belgians took over Africa and did really bad things?’…. He continues to carry this conversation on with himself while he roughly dilates and then belittles the patient…. (by the way, a patient that is crying and holding on to my hand tight, as I try to distract her from him)…. He states, ‘The United States does the same thing. Did you know that?’ The patient, with tears falling down her cheeks, shakes her head, indicating, ‘No,’ which Dr. Liveright replies, ‘I didn’t think you’d know anything about that. Yup, the United States is a big bully.’”

Jane is one of two former employees of Planned Parenthood Delaware – both registered nurses – have publicly called for investigations into the operation’s practices.

What I believe should happen is that Planned Parenthood should no longer be self-regulated,” said Joyce Vasikonis, a Dover nurse who also worked at the Wilmington site. Vasikonis was interim surgical services manager when she resigned last August.

Vasikonis describes herself as “radically pro-abortion,” but said she could not continue to work under the conditions she saw.

According to the Washington Post, the two nurses testified at a state Senate hearing about problems at the facility.

“He was a very small part of it,” nurse Joyce Vasikonis said Thursday about Liveright. “The biggest issue for me was sterility. The staff didn’t know how to maintain sterility from beginning to end.”

Vasikonis, who worked at the clinic from October 2011 to August 2012, said Liveright often failed to wear sterile gloves during abortions, but that she never saw any problems with the actual physical procedures themselves.

She also said she never saw Liveright yelling or cursing, but that she did witness an incident of sexual harassment. That incident involved Liveright teasing a young female intern about a cellphone photograph of a pierced penis that he and another male employee were looking at.

Liveright said the two nurses had legitimate concerns — not about him, but about Planned Parenthood.

“Planned Parenthood is partly to blame for all of this,” he said. “They’ve allowed this circus to continue. It’s partly because they never listened to these women to begin with.”

Liveright promised to clear his name but said he bears no ill will toward the agency.

“Women are taken care of. Abortions are done,” he said. “A couple of complications, but by and large no problem. People can complain about nit-picky stuff and the nurses were on a rampage because no one would listen within the organization.”

Despite the unwelcome allegations and the fact that he thinks Planned Parenthood has “blackballed me,” Liveright said he would consider working for them again.
