Don’t be fooled: Requiring Planned Parenthood to report sexual abuse is a good thing

Planned Parenthood, woman

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has published a proposed rule change to the federal Title X family planning program in the Federal Register, which reiterates the requirement that recipients and subrecipients of those tax dollars must, by law, report sexual abuse, including child sexual abuse and sex trafficking. The move comes on the heels of an investigative report and docuseries published by Live Action, which reveals a systemic decades-long sexual abuse cover-up by Planned Parenthood, one of the largest recipients to Title X funds.

As Live Action News has previously documentedTitle X requires recipients of the government dollars to comply with all federal and state laws involving the reporting of sexual abuse. In 2015 alone, 474 of the organization’s facilities received funding from the federal program.

Live Action’s alarming investigative report opens with this statement from a sexual abuse victim taken to Planned Parenthood for an abortion to cover the predator’s crime:

She’s out there. Somewhere. A girl just like me. Somewhere there’s a young innocent girl – barely a teenager. And right now, she’s suffering from the horrors of sexual abuse at the hands of an adult as I did. Somewhere ‘that girl’ is getting raped. Like I was. Impregnated. Like I was. And she may be taken to a Planned Parenthood abortion center. Like I was. ‘That girl’ may actually be telling Planned Parenthood that she’s being abused. Probably by her boyfriend. In my case, I was abused by my own father. …For six years, Planned Parenthood did everything possible to try to defeat my [legal] claims and drown out my message that, when Planned Parenthood knows or suspects that a young girl is being sexually abused, it must meet its duties under the law and immediately report that abuse to the proper authorities. …We can all get behind cases like mine. Because they’re out there. I know they’re out there. You know they’re out there. Planned Parenthood knows they’re out there.

Live Action’s report, “Aiding Abusers, Planned Parenthood’s cover-up of child sexual abuse,” also includes a few horrific cases documenting Planned Parenthood’s complicity in covering child sexual abuse:

• Denise Fairbanks had been sexually abused by her father since she was 13. When she became pregnant at age 16, he forced her to have an abortion at Planned Parenthood. Although she told the staff that he was raping her, they refused to report the incident. Instead, they sent her home with him, where he continued to abuse her for another year-and-a-half.
• George Savanah had repeatedly raped his daughter and impregnated her when she was 14, 16, and 17 years old, each time taking her to Planned Parenthood and forcing her to get an abortion. Planned Parenthood neglected to report any of the three suspicious incidents to authorities.
• Timothy David Smith had sexually abused his stepdaughter for seven years and took her to Planned Parenthood when she became pregnant at age 13. Planned Parenthood committed an abortion without notifying her parents and without reporting the suspected abuse to authorities as required by Colorado law.
• Planned Parenthood committed an abortion on a 12-year-old girl at the request of her 23-year-old foster brother, who was also her abuser. Shawn Michael Stevens took her home afterwards and continued to rape her. Planned Parenthood not only neglected to notify authorities, but also failed to notify the victim’s foster parents about the abortion.

Though Live Action has exclusively documented many of Planned Parenthood’s failures and cover-ups, Live Action’s investigative report includes information gleaned from other groups who have participated in legal actions or contributions to the public record, including “reams of documents from lawsuits, court filings, and regulatory agency reports.” Those groups include Alliance Defending Freedom, Life Legal Defense Foundation, Life Dynamics, Americans United for Life, and others.

The proposed Title X rule change indicates that Planned Parenthood and other recipients of Title X funds cannot hide behind “confidentiality” to skirt state and federal laws. It states in part:

As discussed above, Title X grantees and subrecipients are required to comply with all State and local laws requiring notification or reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest, and the like. Section 59.11 currently provides that personal information may not be disclosed absent consent by the individual, except to provide treatment, or as required by law, “with appropriate safeguards for confidentiality.” To ensure that Title X grantees and subrecipients comply with applicable reporting requirements, the proposed rule would clarify that concerns about confidentiality of information may not be used as a rationale for noncompliance with such reporting laws.

Under Section 59.17: Compliance With Reporting Requirements, the proposal adds:

New provision § 59.17 would address explicitly the requirement for Title X projects to comply with all State and local laws regarding the notification or reporting of crimes involving sexual exploitation, child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, incest, intimate partner violence, and human trafficking. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2018 included the following provision: “Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no provider of services under Title X of the Public Health Service Act shall be exempt from any State law requiring notification or the reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest.” This provision is consistent with language that has been included in appropriations acts for HHS since fiscal year 1999...

The rule also includes, “those State or local laws respecting intimate partner violence and human trafficking because such criminal activities would be encompassed within the categories of crime enumerated in the Appropriations Act (“child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest”)… Title X grantees and subrecipients have an affirmative obligation to comply with notification or reporting requirements; merely being aware of such requirements is insufficient to comply with the law.”

One might assume that reporting abuse, specifically child sexual abuse, is not an unreasonable requirement for agencies receiving tax dollars. But in a time of intolerance toward the enabling of sexual abuse brought on in part by the MeToo and TimesUp movements, Planned Parenthood continues to receive these taxpayer funds, despite mounting evidencethat they protect abusers by failing to report abuse, often in violation of the law.

Planned Parenthood has little interest in identifying the age of partners of minor children who seek their services. And in a 2008 Live Action investigation, when directly told that an adult is having sex with an underaged minor, Planned Parenthood employees have been shown coach potential sexual abuse victims to lie about the age of their abusers:

In addition, undercover footage captured by the Center for Medical Progress reveals that other abortion providers find mandatory reporting laws unreasonable. In footage now removed from YouTube, a National Abortion Federation abortion provider bemoaned the law as forcing abortion businesses to be a “state actor.” A transcript of the comments were captured by the blog Clinic Quotes, as follows:

[…]these regulations that we all are so familiar in working with fighting with now, challenge the moral agency of physicians. Because they turn physicians into agents of the state. We’re familiar with this with very vulnerable populations, such as making physicians mandatory reporters for child abuse, but it puts them in that same role as a state actor, saying what the state wants them to say or doing what the state wants them to do. It’s a conscription of physicians to perform state actions. In my opinion, if the state wants these things, they should print state flyers and appoint state employees to do these things, rather than force the physicians to do it on the state’s behalf.

Under HHS’ proposed rules, deliberate skirting of mandatory reporting laws would no longer be acceptable. The rule states:

Some practitioners have proposed that providers avoid soliciting or determining the age of the adolescent or the age of their sexual partner as a means of assuring the adolescent of confidential services and, thus, avoiding the potential responsibility of reporting. But Title X exempts neither Title X clinics nor Title X healthcare providers from their responsibility to comply with State and local reporting laws. Sexual exploitation, abuse, or assault (including statutory rape) are crimes that affect individuals, families, and communities. Title X projects should lead the Nation in protecting those who are vulnerable to sexual abuse, rape, and assault; in developing protocols to identify clients who may be at risk for sexual abuse; in counseling teens on, and in producing programs and materials that assist teens in, resisting sexual exploitation, abuse, and coercion; and in assuring appropriate support and management of teens (and women) who have been exploited, abused or coerced into unequal sexual partnerships.

According to former staffers, Planned Parenthood has looked the other way for years when abuse victims entered their doors. Live Action’s investigative report quotes some of these whistleblowers, including Monica Cline, former health educator who worked with Planned Parenthood in Texas and New Mexico:

“[Planned Parenthood workers] adopted George Bush’s ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ [policy]… If we don’t ask how old her partner is, we don’t have to tell. And so Planned Parenthood actually allows victims of human trafficking to continue to be victims of human trafficking. And they’re okay with that. I went back to my office and I told my supervisor, listen, I’m trying to teach them about key concepts on Title X; they’re admitting that they’re not going to report cases of statutory rape.”

https://youtu.be/igQlxvXdn4s

Statements like this are a reason HHS has added in the proposed rule:

Through the proposed rule, the Department would require, as a condition of receiving Title X funding, that a project provide assurance that it has a plan in place to comply with State and local laws requiring notification or reporting and maintains appropriate documentation of compliance with these reporting requirements… It would require that Title X grantees and subrecipients have in place a plan that demonstrates that the grantee and any subrecipients are aware of what specific reporting requirements apply to them in their State (or jurisdiction), and provide adequate training for all personnel with respect to these requirements and how such reports are to be made.

In addition, Title X projects would be required to conduct a preliminary screening of any teen who presents with an STD, pregnancy, or suspicion of abuse in order to rule out victimization of a minor. Such screening would be required with respect to any individual who is under the age of consent in the jurisdiction in which the individual receives Title X services. If positively diagnosed, projects are permitted to also treat STDs.

“Even in the rare situation where Planned Parenthood may attempt to argue that it has no legal obligation to report a specific instance of suspected sexual abuse, most people would agree that adults in a position of authority have a moral obligation to do so, especially when the abuse involves minors,” Live Action’s report states, noting, “Despite the evidence that this reporting problem seems to be part of Planned Parenthood’s culture and a ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy regarding underage pregnancies seems to be prevalent throughout the organization, Planned Parenthood affiliates continue to receive Title X funding and children continue to remain trapped in abusive situations.”

Because of this, the HHS proposed rule § 59.17 would “require grantees and subrecipients to maintain records that would identify, among other things, the age of any minor clients served, the age of their sexual partner(s) where required by law, and what reports or notifications were made to appropriate State agencies. The Department would use this documentation to ensure appropriate compliance with State and local reporting requirements.”

The public has until July 31, 2018 to file a comment, here or here.

Majority of trafficked women may be forced to abort… but you can help

It is important for the pro-life community to understand indicators of human and/or sex trafficking, which can include multiple abortions or miscarriages. Many pro-life advocates may be on the front lines when a woman is being trafficked. It is also imperative that the pro-life community understand and educate law enforcement and our communities on how abortion facilities, including Planned Parenthood centers, often fail to protect those who are trafficked by covering for the abusers and by not reporting in accordance with the law. When a woman is trafficked, she may become pregnant multiple times and may be forced to abort or made to miscarry, according to experts who work in organizations aimed at ending human trafficking.

Live Action News has documented some of the tragic cases in which Planned Parenthood has covered for child sexual abuse. Just a handful of the horrific cases were highlighted in our most recent Aiding Abusers video series. Watch below:

Live Action founder and president Lila Rose stated in a press release:

Despite Planned Parenthood’s public rhetoric as well as laws requiring it to report suspected abuse, its failure to report has been deliberate and widespread. Time and again, rather than reporting abuse to authorities, Planned Parenthood has repeatedly looked the other way and performed abortions on victims as young as 12 years old. These girls deserved advocacy but instead Planned Parenthood staff ignored their abuse and returned them to the waiting arms of their abusers.

Because of flagrant violations like these, the proposed Title X rule tightening on reporting abuse is absolutely necessary. Planned Parenthood has proven that its priority is selling abortions, not caring for the most vulnerable of girls. Planned Parenthood’s culture of cover-up must end, the cycle of abuse of innocent children must end, and Planned Parenthood’s half a billion dollars in annual federal funding must end. Taxpayers cannot be forced to subsidize these abuses of children.

In addition to numerous pregnancies, miscarriages, or instances in which women are forced to abort, another indicator of sex trafficking is seen when an older boyfriend or unrelated adult accompanies a young person or female. This adult can be male or female, as many traffickers use older victims under their manipulative and coercive grasp to accompany teens in public. In addition, experts have discovered that frequent use of emergency contraception (such as PlanB or the morning after pill), which can be purchased over the counter or at a Planned Parenthood, can also be a sign that a child is being exploited.

Additional indicators of commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), documented by Jordan Greenbaum, MD, — who works with victims of suspected physical/sexual abuse, neglect and sex trafficking — and colleagues, published by the Academy of Pediatrics, include:

  • Child accompanied by domineering adult who does not allow child to answer questions
  • Child accompanied by unrelated adult
  • Child accompanied by other children and only one adult
  • Child provides changing information regarding demographics
  • Chief complaint is acute sexual assault or acute physical assault
  • Chief complaint is suicide attempt
  • Child is poor historian or disoriented from sleep deprivation or drug intoxication
  • Multiple sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Previous pregnancy/abortion
  • Frequent visits for emergency contraception
  • Chronic runaway behavior
  • Chronic truancy or problems in school
  • History of sexual abuse/physical abuse/neglect
  • Involvement of child protective services (especially foster care/group home)
  • Involvement with department of juvenile justice
  • Significantly older boyfriend

In the video below from the Dr. Phil show, a trafficked woman claims she was “allowed to get pregnant because men paid for that.” She also claims she had “several abortions” and “had three that survived.” She stated that after she had her babies, “they were taken away” and she was only allowed to see them as a reward.

 

According to a report by Northwest Georgia News, Dr. Greenbaum told an audience at Georgia Northwestern Technical College recently, “If a health professional suspects a patient is being trafficked — by picking up on certain indicators such as overdoses, suicide attempts, numerous abortions or sexually transmitted infections — it is important for them to proceed carefully in asking questions of the patient in a safe, one-on-one situation.”

The article goes on to point out:

Medical providers may encounter CSEC victims in emergency departments, family planning clinics (including Title X clinics), public clinics or private offices, urgent care centers, or institutional settings. Medical care may be sought for a variety of problems, including sexual assault, physical injury, infection, exacerbations of chronic conditions, complications of substance abuse/overdose issues, or pregnancy testing, contraceptive care, and other reproductive issues…. Some victims have access to medical facilities for routine testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs), contraceptive care, and general health care, but others have limited or no access, seeking care only when their conditions are severe….

In addition to the typical elements of a medical history, information may be sought regarding whether the youth has a regular source of medical care or a medical home and his or her immunization status, reproductive history (STIs, pregnancy/abortions, anogenital trauma, number and gender of sexual partners, age at first intercourse, condom use, etc), history of inflicted injuries related to CSEC, physical abuse or dating violence, substance use, and history of mental health signs/symptoms.

An undercover investigation conducted by Live Action at several Planned Parenthood facilities revealed just how much more empathetic Planned Parenthood was toward the actor posing as a “pimp,” than the young girls for whom he was allegedly seeking care.

Below is a compilation reel of that investigation:

 

As reported previously by Live Action News, Dottie Laster, an expert on human trafficking, wrote about Live Action’s videos exposing Planned Parenthood for being willing to commit abortions on trafficking victims:

After viewing the Planned Parenthood video my first thoughts were of the victims I have served over the last 8 years. Specifically, the women and girls — their horrendous statements of rape, gang rapes, torture, branding, starvation, extortions, assault and their reports of repeated forced abortions and miscarriages due to the trauma they received. I have often wondered where these multiple abortions took place and how medical professionals had not seen the extensive trauma to their bodies, spirits and souls.

According to Laura Lederer, former Senior Advisor on Trafficking in Persons for the U.S. Department of State and the founder of the anti-trafficking non-profit Global Centurion, sex trafficked victims are often forced to abort. According to a report by Genevieve Plaster, a research assistant at Charlotte Lozier Institute, Lederer once testified:

55% of the women surveyed had at least one abortion, and 30% had multiple abortions during the time of trafficking. Of these, more than half responded that the abortion was not their choice, and many responded by saying that the pressure from pimps to continue the trade did not allow for the time to carry a baby.

One such case involved one of the largest human trafficking rings in the United States, run by Maximino “Chimino” Mondragon. This modern-day slave owner held as many as 120 women captive, forcing them to work off their smuggling debts.

Maximino Mondragon

According to the Houston Chronicle, “Some of the women were raped and forced to have abortions.” The paper reported:

Chapuseaux, an investigator on the local human trafficking task force, lives with the images from the Mondragon case. He has a picture of a stillborn baby born at a Houston hospital, perfectly formed at five or six months, the result of the abortion-inducing drugs. He said he struggles with the memory of a 17-year-old Salvadoran girl who was purchased from the Mondragon ring by a source working for investigators. She was raped on a mattress in a room behind the bar before the source could pick her up, Chapuseaux said.

Mondragon and his co-defendants worked with Walter Alexander Corea, an admitted smuggler, to bring the women to Houston and force them to work in cantinas on the northwest side, including Mi Cabana Sports Bar, El Portero de Chimino Bar and Huetamo Night Club, prosecutors said. If a customer just wanted a beer, it would cost $2 or $3, depending on the brand. But if the customer wanted the company of a girl, a Corona would cost $13, investigators said. Of that, $9 went to pay down the debt from the smuggling.

When authorities raided the apartments where the women lived on Houston’s northwest side, they found 98 possible victims, witnesses and suspects, officials said. Eventually, the number of victims in the Mondragon case grew to about 120.

Lorenza Reyes-Nunez, aka “La Comadre,” who was accused of performing abortions, took a deal with the government. The Honduran woman was accused of giving pregnant women an herbal supplement that induced abortions, often late in the pregnancies.

One woman who took the drugs in a failed abortion attempt weeks later had a baby born with a hole in his heart and vision problems, investigators said…

In a separate case, the Montana Department of Justice profiled the case of another sex trafficked victim named Adrian:

Adrian was adopted into an alcoholic, drug abusing family. At age five, she was raped by her adopted father and eventually by her adopted brother as well. She was sold by her family and forced to have an abortion at age 11. At 12, she was gang raped by her “father’s” friends in her own home. She remembers eating out of trash cans often while growing up. After Adrian’s adoptive mother and father died, her brother sold her until she was 14, at which time he sold her to a pimp.  She was able to escape at 15 and lived wherever she could. At 17, Adrian was running for her life again.

The child eventually found refuge at a safe house set up for victims of trafficking.

Victims have testified that, in some cases, when taken to abortion facilities or Planned Parenthood centers, the doctors they were taken to may have been clients of their pimps. In a recent report on trafficking victims, one victim told researchers that the reason she was taken to Planned Parenthood was because “Planned Parenthood didn’t ask any questions.”

Women and girls are often taken to abortion clinics by their pimps or a person working for the pimp, a victim of the sex trafficking industry told Facing Life Now TV. Marlene Carson who had become “trusted” by her pimp, told host Brad Mattes that she was responsible for booking abortions when a woman became pregnant and noted that, “The pimps and the traffickers would get fake I.D.’s for the girls and we would take them to have abortions.”

According to Life Issues Institute:

A hired “parent” would take girls to Planned Parenthood for abortions. Marlene says the staff would be well aware the girls were being victimized, but they consistently looked the other way to avoid losing a paying customer in the lucrative business of abortion.

When asked if abortion clinics like Planned Parenthood would turn down the abortions for the girls, Marlene replied, “Oh, no, absolutely not… honestly they had to know that these were teenagers, they were not adult women.”

Marlene said that participating in these abortions traumatized her. She recalled a 14-year-old sex trafficked victim who became pregnant and was being forced to have an abortion: “So, I had the whole house raided — she was rescued,” she said.

Couple this with the prevalence of abortion-inducing medications and potentially abortifacient emergency contraceptives, and you have created an environment in which sexual predators and traffickers can inflict additional harm on women and children by either taking them for abortions or by forcing them to abort with chemicals, beatings or other methods.

Tragically, the pro-life community has begun to understand that sex trafficking and abortion are connected: they both dehumanize human beings, and they both operate under a false assumption that humans are nothing more than property to be bought, sold or killed inside or outside the womb. In part two of this series, Live Action News will share some practical ways that pro-lifers can educate themselves and eventually identify and assist these victims in receiving freedom from captivity and from the harms of abuse and of being forced to abort their babies.

Child porn, harassment, and rape: Is Planned Parenthood a haven for sex offenders?

Planned Parenthood’s political organizer president Cecile Richards recently expressed concern about accusations brought by women claiming to have been sexually harassed by men in power. While these accusations and admissions are greatly concerning, it seems Richards has overlooked her own back yard, so to speak. Plenty of Planned Parenthood employees have had their own share of troubles in this arena.

CALIFORNIA

Jorge Martin-Santana

According to Sacramento Superior Court records, Jorge Humberto Martin Santana was arrested in 2013 and charged with one count of misdemeanor sexual battery, under criminal code PC 243.4(E)(1), which reads in part:A California jury found a Planned Parenthood medical assistant guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery after inappropriately touching a patient during the course of his duties at Planned Parenthood.

Any person who touches an intimate part of another person, if the touching is against the will of the person touched, and is for the specific purpose of sexual arousal, sexual gratification, or sexual abuse, is guilty of misdemeanor sexual battery…

In February of 2015, Martin-Santana pleaded “not guilty,” but on April 9, 2015, he was sentenced to 140 days in a sheriff’s work project and three years of probation.

DELAWARE

Timothy Liveright Planned Parenthood abortionist accused of sexual harassment

In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

“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.”In 2013, Planned Parenthood RN Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, who worked at Planned Parenthood Delaware’s Dover and Wilmington clinics, told blogger Jill Stanek that abortionist Timothy Fouch Liveright had sexually harassed employees and patients.

Jayne resigned from Planned Parenthood after her letters of complaint to management were ignored. The nurse also said she observed Liveright “acting condescending to African American patients by implying they were ignorant,” among other charges.

Liveright worked for several Planned Parenthood locations.

A Delaware Medical Licensure complaint filed against Liveright claims Planned Parenthood reprimanded him for “unprofessional, disrespectful, and inappropriate” conduct, including “yelling, screaming, and cursing” in front of employees and patients and “sexual harassment of female employees.”

According to USA Today, Liveright played an abortionist in the 2010 Hollywood movie, “Blue Valentine“:

In 2013, media reported that Liveright surrendered his license to practice medicine in Delaware, but a November 2017 query reveals that Liveright’s Pennsylvania license is still active.

FLORIDA

In July 2008, the Miami Herald reported that Planned Parenthood’s national office cut ties with several Florida centers after accusations of “terrible mismanagement and possibly fraud,” including alleged sexual harassment against a former CEO:

Miami Herald Planned Parenthood cuts ties with 5 clinics, sexual harassment

The Herald stated:

The disaffiliation allowed the national organization to wash its hands of the local chapter once known as Planned Parenthood of South Palm Beach and Broward Counties.

The chapter is dealing with many problems, including harassment complaints and possible misuse of nearly $450,000 — slightly less than they received in public funding in 2005.

ILLINOIS

Several female patients claimed Illinois Planned Parenthood physician, Carl E. Burpo, “engaged in improper conduct during a gynecological examination” at Burpo’s office and at Planned Parenthood, where he worked part-time. He was eventually indicted on 21 counts of sexual misconduct.

One complaint alleged that Burpo fondled patients’ “breasts and in some cases made other sexual advances toward seven patients in 1990 and 1991 while examining them.”

A 1993 report states that Burpo was suspended from practicing at Planned Parenthood. A jury acquitted him in two of the cases but in February 1995, the Illinois Supreme Court reinstated eight of the criminal sexual assault charges.

His medical license was suspended in 1995.

Roger Ian Hardy

Former Planned Parenthood abortionist Roger Ian Hardy was forced to surrender his Massachusetts medical license in January 2014, amid allegations that he sexually molested patients during fertility treatments at Fertility Centers of New England.

Operation Rescue notes, “Why Hardy eventually left Planned Parenthood is unknown, but a Boston Globe article published on May 1, 2014, indicates that Hardy’s abhorrent sexual misconduct stretched back as far as 20 years. Hardy was working for Planned Parenthood during that time, in which Planned Parenthood abortion patients were likely exposed to molestation by Hardy as well.”

MINNESOTA

In 1987, the Minnesota Board of Medical Examiners revoked the license of Hideo D. Mori for alleged sexual improprieties involving 10 patients over 23 years in Grand Meadow. A report states that administrative law judge Allan W. Klein found Mori had “inappropriately massaged some of his patients, telling one of them… that he needed to stimulate her genital area to fit her properly for a diaphragm.”

Klein wrote that Mori claimed to have romantic feelings toward the patient, caressing her body and kissing her to make her sexually aroused, understanding “that it was not medically indicated.”

“I deeply regret creating a situation in my personal life that potentially creates a distraction from these goals, and I apologize to the people in the Lubbock community for the incident,” Thornton stated. “I will work with my attorney through the appropriate court process to correct any misinformation and take responsibility for errors.”

According to the county clerk, the charges in Thornton’s case #2012-469-378 were dismissed on February 28, 2013, in the “interest of justice.”

Kabacy was not practicing at Planned Parenthood at the time of his December 2006 arrest. According to the US Attorney’s office:

Kabacy admitted in his plea agreement that he knowingly possessed more than 8,000 images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Kabacy also admits to possessing videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, both on his computer and on 36 compact disks. Some of the images depict children under the age of 12. Kabacy admitted that he communicated with other people over the Internet, expressing his interest in having sex with minors and exchanging more than 40 images of child pornography with these other people over the Internet.

Kabacy’s OregonWashington State and California medical licenses were later revoked.

The complaint, filed in 2000, does not state where the incidents occurred.

Operation Rescue files complaint against abortionist who was once accused of rape, sodomy, and dumping fetuses

Posted in Abortionist, Abortionist dumps fetuses, Abortionist Sexual, pro-choice violence, rape, Rape and Abortion, Sexual Assault and abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , , on March 3, 2014 by saynsumthn

PateltauntsMillionaire Oklahoma abortionist Nareshkumar Gandalal “Naresh” Patel, who once faced charges of raping and sodomizing his abortion patients, is once again under investigation after Operation Rescue filed a five-count complaint against him with the State Attorney General’s office, the Oklahoma Health Department, and the Oklahoma Medical Board.

The complaints were based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a publicly-accessible trash receptacle near Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic in Oklahoma City. The material was received by Operation Rescue from an anonymous source on March 18, 2013.

Allegations include:

1. Record-keeping violations and improper disposal of confidential information.
2. Mandatory reporting violations.
3. Improper disposal of medical waste.
4. Failure to protect and properly dispose of employment applications.
5. Failure to observe 24-hour voluntary and informed consent.

Patel is an abortionist with a long and particularly horrific history of Medical Board disciplinary actions, malpractice claims, and criminal cases. Nevertheless, financial documents found amid the medical records and waste indicate that Patel owns $39.4 million in real estate. His personal income exceeds $1.4 million annually. His net worth is listed at $28 million.

“It’s appalling that Patel has lined his pockets by taking innocent life while flouting the law and cutting corners on women’s health,” said Newman. “Frankly, it’s despicable.”

Board discipline

In 1990, Patel was disciplined by the Oklahoma Medical Board for Unprofessional Conduct for “failing to maintain dispensing records for dangerous drugs and keep complete and accurate records of purchase and dispensing of controlled drugs.”

Records show he was also disciplined for botching an abortion in 1989. Medical Board documents state that Patel “did perform a surgical procedure on patient E.S.B., and said procedure was performed in an unprofessional manner and unprofessional setting.”

Unfortunately, Patel appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which struck the botched abortion charge from Patel’s record, allowing only the charge of failing to maintain proper drug records to stand.

In 1992, the State of Ohio issued a reprimand of Patel based on Oklahoma’s actions.

History of dumping aborted baby remains

Fetuses in Field

In 1993, Patel admitted that he dumped the remains of nearly 60 babies that had been aborted at his clinic in a field near Shawnee, Kansas, and had attempted to burn them but only the plastic bags around the remains caught on fire. The bodies were discovered by two passers-by. Patel’s excuse that he could not find a service to take away the remains lacked credibility. Because at that time there were no laws in Oklahoma regarding the disposal of aborted baby remains, Patel was never charged.

___________________________________________

As this blog has already reported:

In March of 1993, Abortion doctor Nareshkumar Patel of Shawnee, Oklahoma was accused of Forcible Oral Sodomy and sexual battery by a patient he was treating after hours in his clinic. Patel was also the focus of a controversy in 1992 when several aborted fetuses from his clinic were found partially burned in an open field owned by Patel. Officials could not cite any law that prohibited the burning of aborted fetuses in that manner and those charges were dropped. (SOURCE: The Daily Oklahoman 5/28/93 Oklahoma Medical Board Case # 90-09-1129)

Abortionist accused of sodomy and rape

According to the Daily Oklahoman (Abortion Doctor Denies Sex Charges: 9/20/1994), Oklahoma abortion doctor Nareshkumar Patel, 42, was charged in Oklahoma County District Court with one count of forcible oral sodomy and one count of sexual battery in an alleged 1993 sexual assault on a patient.

Patel denied that he had sexually abused any of his patients.

The 25-year-old victim testified that Patel attempted to force her to sodomize him after she had been sedated. Two other women previously testified Patel had raped them after he had administered an anesthetic to them.

However, Patel was not charged in those attacks because they allegedly happened in 1989 and 1990. They came forward only after Patel was charged in 1993.

A September 16,1994 article in the same paper, Ex-Patient Claims Rape By Patel Before Abortion, reports that a 26-year-old Moore woman testified that Patel raped her in 1990 shortly before performing an abortion on her. The woman testified that Dr. Patel prepared her for an abortion by sedating her, then raped her on the surgical table. After the assault, Patel began the abortion procedure, the woman testified.

Another woman testified that she had been a patient of Patel’s in 1989 and also had been raped by him under similar circumstances. The woman, then 19, also did not report the alleged attack to law enforcement because she “felt dirty.”

Patel denied all the charges and some of his staff testified that he was never alone with female patients. However, Rochelle Brown, a former employee of Patel’s at his Shawnee clinic, claimed Patel often would conduct pelvic examinations on female patients with no nurse present.

____________________________________________________________________

Examples from OR’s post:

Second patient’s testimony

The second women to come forward alleged that after she was drugged, she was taken to an examination room and put on a table. She said she heard him unzip his pants and saw him pull them down.

“I felt Dr. Patel enter my rectum with his penis,” she said in response to questioning. She indicated that when he finished sodomizing her, he completed her abortion. When she began to come to afterwards, she told the court, “His penis was in my mouth.”

Once fully awake from the sedation, the victim said she was in “severe pain” and bleeding heavily. It was later that she discovered, “I had a tampon in my vagina, and I had a tampon in my rectum.”

Third patient’s testimony

The third patient to make allegations came forward after hearing news reports about Patel and allegations of sexual abuse made by another woman. She noted that she was injected with an unknown drug, after which claimed Paten began to fondle her breasts. While on the examination table, she said, “I heard the zipper of his pants, and he started moving back and forth. And I felt the pressure inside of me.” In response to questioning she indicated that the sensation was in her vagina.

After having his way with her, Patel allegedly called a nurse into the room and completed an abortion on the woman.

Patel was somehow acquitted by the jury that heard this graphic testimony.

“Again and again, Patel has slipped away without consequences. If he really did what the women say, it is an atrocity that he got away with it. What is more disturbing is that Patel continues to be in a position where further abuse of this nature can occur,” said Newman. “People who are sexual deviants just don’t change overnight.”

But that was far from then end of allegations against Patel.

___________________________________________________________________________

Complaint centers on:

Privacy rights trashed

After analyzing the material from Patel’s abortion clinic trash receptacle, Operation Rescue determined that violations had occurred and filed the appropriate complaints.

Operation Rescue submitted copies of dozens of documents from Patel and Outpatient Services for Women that included original patient consent forms, signed procedure logs, appointment calendars, financial information, and competed abortion forms, all containing patient names, contact information, and other identifying data.

“Abortion clinics claim to be concerned about patient privacy, yet we have found that abortion clinics are among the most negligent when it comes to disposing of detailed patient information,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “Women who get abortions should pretty much expect their contact information, medical records, and financial information to end up where it can be easily accessed by the public, thanks to shoddy abortion clinic practices.”

Failure to report

Also discovered among the cache of documents received by Operation Rescue were numerous original Individual Abortion Forms. Oklahoma requires that abortion clinics report each abortion that is done. The presence of the completed forms in the trash indicate that these abortions may not have been reported and that further investigation is required.

Failing to report abortions within 30 days of the abortion is a crime in Oklahoma punishable with a $500 fine per report.

Bloody refuse

laminaria

Operation Rescue submitted photos to the authorities that showed several large bloody sticks of laminaria dilators that had been improperly discarded along with other bloody refuse from what appeared to be a second trimester abortion. Also discarded with the bloody trash was a blood-stained broken tenaculum, which is a scissor-like grasping instrument.

The discarded laminaria and broken tenaculum both fall within Oklahoma Administrative Code 252:515-23 that prohibits “the improper disposal of regulated medical waste, including untreated sharps and items contaminated with blood or other human body fluids.”

Philadelphia doctor accused of murdering patient, newborns
By Michael Martinez, CNN

January 19, 2011 6:13 p.m. EST

(CNN) — A Philadelphia physician, Kermit Barron Gosnell, was charged Wednesday with murder and other offenses for allegedly causing the death of one of his female patients and killing seven viable babies in illegal, late-term abortions, Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams said.

The babies were born alive in the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy, but their spinal cords were allegedly severed with scissors, Williams said in a statement.
Nine other people who worked in the west Philadelphia medical office, including Gosnell’s wife and sister-in-law, also were charged, Williams said. The practice, called the Women’s Medical Society, served mostly low-income minority women for years, he said.

Williams’ statement provided a grisly scenario of the shuttered abortion clinic: A search of the office last year by authorities found bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses scattered throughout the building. Jars containing the severed feet of babies lined a shelf. Furniture and equipment was blood-stained, dusty and broken.

Gosnell’s attorney, William J. Brennan of Philadelphia, told CNN he was surprised at the “length and breadth” of the grand jury’s presentment and report against Gosnell and the nine other defendants. Gosnell is facing hundreds of counts, according to the grand jury’s 62-page presentment.

“The DA of Philadelphia, Seth Williams, is a good guy, and I have a lot of respect for him, but he played this so close to the vest that we were shocked at the number of charges,” Brennan told CNN.

“I hope there is no rush to judgment in this case,” Brennan continued. “Dr. Gosnell should enjoy the same presumption of innocence anyone in this country, you or me, should get if we were charged with a crime. In the process of reviewing the grand jury’s presentment, which is several hundred pages, I understand that the charges are very serious, and we will need some time to read through the grand jury’s presentment and its report.”

Gosnell, 69, is not a board-certified obstetrician or gynecologist, Williams said.

Originally, he said, the clinic used another doctor as a consultant so it could receive a license to perform abortions in 1979.

Two primary state agencies, the Department of Health and the Department of State, have oversight, Williams said Wednesday at a news conference.

But a grand jury investigation found that health and licensing officials had received repeated reports about Gosnell’s dangerous practices for two decades with no action taken, even after the agencies learned that women had died during routine abortions under Gosnell’s care, the district attorney’s statement said.

“What the (grand) jury found most troubling is that neither of those agencies took the time to investigate, to observe, to view, to go to the clinic itself since 1993,” Williams said during the news conference.

“I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic,” Williams said in his statement. “But as district attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law.

“A doctor who cuts into the necks severing the spinal cords of living, breathing babies, who would survive with proper medical attention, is committing murder under the law.”
Gosnell is also accused of reusing unsanitary instruments; performing procedures in filthy rooms, including some having litter boxes and animals present during operations; and allowing unlicensed employees to perform operations and administer anesthesia, including a teenage high school student, Williams said.

Gosnell’s wife, Pearl, 49, of Philadelphia, is also facing charges of providing an abortion at 24 or more weeks, conspiracy and other related charges, Williams said. She has no medical license and is accused of performing illegal abortions at the clinic, he said.

Elizabeth Hampton, 51, of Philadelphia, who is Gosnell’s sister-in-law, is facing charges of hindering prosecution, perjury, false swearing and obstructing administration of law.

Law enforcement officers came upon “the medical abuses” while investigating tips that the doctor had been illegally selling thousands of prescriptions for OxyContin and other narcotics to “patients” that he never examined, Williams said.

The doctor himself was seldom present, the district attorney charged. In his absence, untrained, unsupervised workers, including the teenage girl, routinely injected sedatives into women undergoing illegal late-term abortions, he alleged.

Among numerous charges, Gosnell is accused of third-degree murder in the death of 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar, Williams said.

Mongar died on November 20, 2009, when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell, he said.

Gosnell is also facing seven murder charges in the deaths of infants allegedly killed after being born viable and alive during the sixth, seventh and eighth months of pregnancy in illegal, late-term abortions, Williams said.

Gosnell is also charged with infanticide, conspiracy, abortion at 24 or more weeks of pregnancy, corpse abuse, theft, corruption of minors, solicitation and other related offenses, he said.
Seven other employees at the clinic were also charged, according to the district attorney’s statement:

Lynda Williams, 42, of Wilmington, Delaware, also is charged with third-degree murder in Mongar’s death. Williams is accused of being an unlicensed worker who routinely performed illegal operations and administered anesthesia. She is also facing murder charges for the death of a viable baby born alive, abortion at 24 or more weeks and other related offenses.

Sherry West, 51, of Newark, Delaware, is charged with third-degree murder. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who routinely performed illegal operations and administered anesthesia. She is also facing a charge of providing an abortion at 24 or more weeks and other related offenses.

Adrienne Moton, 33, of Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, is charged with murder in the death of a viable baby born alive. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who routinely and illegally administered anesthesia to patients.

Steven Massof, 48, of Pittsburgh, is facing murder charges for the deaths of two viable babies born alive. Massof, a medical school graduate without a license or any certification, allegedly worked as a doctor at the clinic. He is also facing conspiracy and other related charges.

Eileen O’Neill, 54, of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, is a medical school graduate who allegedly worked as a doctor at the clinic without a license or certification. She is facing theft by deception, conspiracy, perjury and false swearing charges.

Tina Baldwin, 45, of Philadelphia, is facing charges of racketeering, conspiracy and corruption of a minor. She was allegedly an unlicensed worker at the clinic who illegally administered anesthesia to patients and allowed her 15-year-old daughter to administer anesthesia to patients as well.

— Office manager Maddline Joe, 53, of Philadelphia, is charged with conspiracy.

Inside the ‘baby charnel house’
By DANA DiFILIPPO
Philadelphia Daily News

The grand jury called it “a baby charnel house.”

For more than 30 years, Kermit Gosnell ran an abortion clinic in West Philadelphia that was the “go-to” place for women wanting illegal late-term abortions or for people seeking no-questions-asked prescription drugs, according to a grand jury.

Here are some highlights from the jury’s report:
* Gosnell performed thousands of abortions at his Women’s Medical Society at 38th Street and Lancaster Avenue, even though he was a family practitioner never certified as an obstetrician or gynecologist. Gosnell was rarely present in the clinic, allowing his unlicensed, untrained staff to administer drugs and perform procedures.

* Gosnell routinely induced labor in patients in their second and third trimesters rather than perform risky late-term abortions. That sometimes resulted in live births. He and his staffers killed the babies by stabbing their necks with scissors to sever their spinal cords and sometimes suctioning their skulls, too. About a baby writhing as he cut its neck, Gosnell joked to a staffer: “That’s what you call a chicken with its head cut off.”

* Gosnell is accused of murder in the November 2009 death of Karnamaya Mongar, 41, who died a day after a staffer overdosed her with sedatives. Another woman, Semika Shaw, 22, died after Gosnell punctured her uterus and sent her home. Gosnell allegedly injured “scores” of others, leaving some sterile, perforating the bowels and uteruses of others. He frequently left fetal remains inside women, who then had to seek treatment elsewhere. * Gosnell and his staffers frequently left their patients unattended, so that the dead fetuses or live babies “fell out” wherever the patient was, often the bathroom. One clinic janitor told the grand jury that this happened so often that fetuses frequently clogged the toilet.

* Conditions at the clinic were deplorable. The walls were urine-splattered, and the floors were bloodstained. A janitor testified that the bathrooms were cleaned just once a week, even though patients routinely vomited into sinks and miscarried into toilets.

* White patients waited and were treated in a cleaner room than patients of color. Patients of color who became “too rowdy” got a slap on the thigh from Gosnell, one worker testified. Gosnell photographed his patients’ genitalia before procedures, another told the grand jury.

* A high-schooler, the daughter of staffer Tina Baldwin, worked in the clinic for four years, starting at age 15. She worked as much as 50 hours a week for $8.50 an hour. She routinely operated the ultrasound machine, administered anesthesia, diagnosed sexually transmitted diseases and told grand jurors she often was “in charge” of the clinic at night.

* Investigators say Gosnell made up to $15,000 a night, mostly in cash, for a few hours of work performing abortions. That doesn’t include the money he made as one of the state’s top Oxycontin prescribers. When authorities searched his home, they found a gun and $240,000 in cash stashed in his 12-year-old daughter’s closet.

* Instead of trashing disposable medical supplies, Gosnell directed workers to reuse them over and over until they broke. They were rarely sterilized, allowing venereal disease and other germs to spread among patients. After the raid, inspectors found that the suction source used to perform abortions was the only one available to resuscitate patients.

* Medical waste and fetal remains were supposed to be picked up weekly by a licensed disposal provider. But because Gosnell didn’t pay his bills, months might pass between pickups, leaving leaking bags and boxes to pile up in the clinic’s basement and freezers.

Abortionist Kermit Gosnell arrested and charged…, posted with vodpod

1-19-2011

Eyewitness News has learned that a West Philadelphia doctor, his wife and eight other suspects are now under arrest following a grand jury investigation.

Sources say Dr. Kermit Gosnell faces eight counts of murder in the deaths of a woman following a botched abortion at his office, along with the deaths of seven other babies who, prosecutors allege, were born alive following illegal late-term abortions and then were killed with scissors.

The grand jury report states that Dr. Gosnell’s office was filthy and cat litter was apparently found inside the office.

Four of the suspects, some improperly licensed, also face multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing the newborns.

All of the suspects are now behind bars after warrants were served overnight.

Dr. Gosnell, who has practiced in the West Philadelphia neighborhood for decades, is also the target of a federal grand jury investigation into illegally prescribing prescription drugs.
Investigators say during a search of his home, they found $240,000 in cash.

The doctor, in past interviews with Eyewitness News, has proclaimed his innocence, predicting if charged, he will be acquitted.

The Philadelphia District Attorney held a press conference Wednesday morning to officially announce details of the arrests and the grand jury presentment.

According to Operation Rescue, abortionist Gosnell killed Karnamaya Mongar, 41, on November 20, 2009, after she was overdosed on painkillers during an abortion in her 18th or 19th week of pregnancy. Mongar’s brother, told reporters that Gosnell’s abortion clinic was “dirty and bloody.” Gosnell’s medical license was suspended and his clinic closed.

A grand jury was convened to investigate. It has charged Gosnell with eight counts of murder for the death of Mongar and seven babies who were born alive during failed illegal late-term abortions then killed by Gosnell or his clinic workers. Some clinic workers have been charged with multiple counts of murder in the deaths of the infants.

When police raided Gosnell’s home and took him into custody, they discovered $240,000 in cash. Gosnell is also the subject of a Federal grand jury that has yet to reach a conclusion of its investigation.

Operation Rescue had urged supporters earlier this month to contact the district attorney as ask for criminal charges.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, who catered to minoritesmade millions of dollars over 30 years, performing as many illegal, late-term abortions as he could, prosecutors said. State regulators ignored complaints about him and failed to visit or inspect his clinic since 1993, but no charges were warranted against them, District Attorney Seth Williams said.

Dr. Gosnell “induced labor, forced the live birth of viable babies in the sixth, seventh, eighth month of pregnancy and then killed those babies by cutting into the back of the neck with scissors and severing their spinal cord,” Mr. Williams said.

Mr. Williams said patients were subjected to squalid and barbaric conditions at Dr. Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society.

Authorities went to investigate drug-related complaints at the clinic last year and stumbled on what Mr. Williams called a “house of horrors.”

“There were bags and bottles holding aborted fetuses were scattered throughout the building,” Mr. Williams said. “There were jars, lining shelves, with severed feet that he kept for no medical purpose.”

The clinic was shut down and Dr. Gosnell’s medical license was suspended after the raid.

Workers, some of whom were also charged with murder, were untrained and unlicensed, including a high-school student who performed anesthesia with potentially lethal narcotics, Mr. Williams said.

Dr. Gosnell and nine other employees are in custody, authorities said.

Dr. Gosnell has been named in at least 10 malpractice suits, including one over the death of a woman who died of sepsis and a perforated uterus.

Philly.com reports that Dr. Kermit Gosnell, 69, his wife and 8 other colleagues were arrested overnight following a Grand Jury investigation. Gosnell and his wife are currently being held at headquarters without bail. Also included in that group is a teenager who reportedly administered anesthetic.

According to the DA’s office, Gosnell is facing Murder in the 3rd Degree for the death of 41 year old Karnamaya Mongar. Mrs. Mongar died on November 20, 2009 when she was overdosed with anesthetics prescribed by Gosnell. He is also facing seven Murder charges for the deaths of infants who were killed after being born viable and alive during the 6th, 7th and 8th month of pregnancy. Along with the Murder charges the District Attorney has charged Gosnell with Infanticide, Conspiracy, Abortion at 24 or more weeks, Abuse of Corpse, Theft, Corruption of Minors, Solicitation and other related offenses.

D.A. Seth Williams held a news conference Wednesday morning, where he reviewed the 300-page Grand Jury report, the details of which are incredibly disturbing. “I am aware that abortion is a hot-button topic,” said District Attorney Williams. “But as District Attorney, my job is to carry out the law. A doctor who knowingly and systematically mistreats female patients, to the point that one of them dies in his so-called care, commits murder under the law.”

Last April, the FBI and Drug enforcement agents raided Dr. Gosnell’s 38th and Lancaster Clinic, called the Women’s Medical Society. Inside, they found jars packed with pieces of aborted fetuses and recliners used in a recovery area for women who had abortions.

Dr. Gosnell’s medical license was been suspended because of the conditions at his clinic. He has also been targeted in multiple lawsuits, at least one charging that a woman died from a botched abortion.

Dr. Gosnell is named in nearly four dozen civil suits going back 20 years. Ten of those are malpractice suits, including one by the family of a young woman who died after a March 2000 abortion at Gosnell’s office.

Some “Safe and Legal” Abortion Stories
A Woman’s Freedom to Choose…! or a potential to be abused?

Abortion providers have preyed on women in a crisis and have even raped and killed their patients. Some abortion doctors have performed abortion while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. They have been caught selling controlled substances, telling non-pregnant women they were pregnant and doing abortions anyway, creating private pornography files with photos of their patients. Some have just operated filthy facilities to maximize profits.

Considering that abortion is one of the most common surgical procedures in the country and yet the most unregulated why aren’t lawmakers improving clinic standards and safety?

Unfortunately the abortion was so bad, it resulted in her death. A friend who was present at the clinic testified that she pleaded with the clinic staff to call paramedics once she noticed Eunice’s bloodied body and poor vital signs. her friend stated” I felt if I hadn’t been there they would have wrapped her dead body and thrown it in the garbage.

This doctor who performed abortions was also accused of injecting patients with anestectics , then engaging in sexual intercourse without the permission of the woman. One woman testified to the medical board that she could not move any muscles during this ordeal, but just kept crying “What are you doing?” Another patient testified that after Okereke examined her vagina that he licked his finger. She said the doctor tried to pay her of to keep her quiet following the incident Okereke’s Medical License was revoked in November of 1989.

If these stories horrify you, they should. Abortion is one of the most unregulated businesses in this country. Minors can walk into the hands of unqualified physicians with questionable and even criminal backgrounds.

The incidents outlined above are just a few incidents involving women and their abortion experiences. Many women never report their negative abortion experiences because of the fear that someone may find out they had an abortion. We have other anecdotal information and more court documents from hundreds of women. The abortion business continues to makes no effort to clean up it’s act.

From San Diego’s News 10 Local Abortion Clinic’s Troubled History Raises Questions

21120994_240X180

CHULA VISTA, Calif. — A family member expressed outrage Friday over the punishment handed down for two local health care workers, 10News reported.

Longtime Chula Vista resident Maria Hart said everyone knows where to go when they need to get an abortion.

Hart took her cousin to a local clinic when they were younger.

She came out crying; she came out in tears, back then we were young,” said Hart.

Hart and her cousin were afraid to tell anyone. Hart said her cousin was fondled and sexually molested during her abortion.

We kind of just went there and trusted the doctors and that they would treat us correctly, and they didn’t,” said Hart.

The doctor her cousin visited, Bertha Bugarin, was sentenced to seven years in state prison for posing as a doctor and performing illegal abortions.

A court recently sentenced her accomplices, Luz Catalina-Gomez and Paloma Rodriguez, to three years probation.

I don’t think it’s right that they’re just still walking around, free to go,” said Hart.

A new clinic has recently opened up under the name Woman’s Choice Family Planning Clinic, and it is being run by Dr. Andrew Rutland. Sources told 10News that Rutland has had problems in the past and is on probation.

Rutland was accused by the State Medical Board of negligently treating ten patients, including two infants who died. He surrendered his license, but applied for reinstatement five years later.

The medical board granted his request in 2007, and Rutland was placed on five years probation and must now practice under the supervision of another doctor.

How can you say that this particular clinic is continuing Bugarin’s efforts?” asked 10News’ Charisse Yu.

The doctor who is presently here has connections with one of the doctors who used to work for Bugarin who lost his license because of malpractice suits,” said pro-life advocate Luis Mendoza.

Hart said she can only hope history won’t repeat itself at a clinic that left many women with emotional and physical scars.

OPERATION RESCUE REPORTED:

News Report Exposes Another Illegal Abortionist, Says Clinic “More Dangerous Than Ever”
October 13, 2009

Operation Rescue demands that the Medical Board take immediate action to revoke Rutland‘s license for probation violations.

San Diego, CA – A television news station has reported on outrage expressed by pro-lifers and the cousin of one of the clinic’s sexual assault victims that accomplices of illegal abortionist Bertha Bugarin received no jail time during their sentencing on criminal abortion charges last month then went on to expose dangers at new abortion clinic.

As reported by Operation Rescue, Luz Catalina-Gomez and Paloma Yonna Solorzano-Rodriguez each received 3 years probation for aiding and abetting the commission of illegal abortions at Bugarin’s Chula Vista, California abortion clinic. The agreement was reached between the defense attorneys and San Diego Superior Court Judge Ted Wethers without the input of the District Attorney’s office in a deal that Operation Rescue President Troy Newman called “fishy.” Bugarin is currently serving 6 years, 8 months in a state prison for her crimes.

Sidewalk Counselor Luis Mendoza, who has worked with Operation Rescue to expose wrong-doing at San Diego area abortion clinics, was particularly upset by the light sentences.

As a sidewalk counselor for nearly 4 years at the now defunct abortion mill were these women worked I experienced first-hand how evil and coercive they were,” said Mendoza.

He remembers a young Hispanic couple, not more than 14 years of age, that he tried to help. They were lied to by Solorzano-Rodriguez about legal problems at the clinic and were coerced by her into having the abortion.

The news report included an interview with Maria Hart, whose cousin had been fondled and sexually molested during an abortion when she was only 16 years old.

We kind of just went there and just trusted the doctors that they would treat us correctly, and they didn’t,” said Hart. “And I don’t think it’s right that they’re still walking around, free to go.

But the report didn’t stop there. After Bugarin’s clinic closed, another abortionist, Andrew Rutland, reopened an abortion clinic in the same location under a new name. Reporter Charisse Yu attempted to interview Rutland, who has an extensive history of discipline with the California Medical Board and is currently on probation and prohibited from practicing without the oversight of another physician.

However, there was no supervising physician on duty with him on the day of the interview.

This news report shows yet another in a long line of abortionists operating illegally,” said Newman. “We demand that the Medical Board act immediately to revoke his medical license. We also demand that the District Attorney’s look into filing criminal charges against Rutland.”

Rutland and Bugarin and the rest of their cohorts are not exceptions to the rule, but are what can be expected at our nation’s abortion mills. Jailing these people is the only way to stop them from preying on vulnerable women,” said Newman.

In the meantime, women must be warned of the dangers of abortion clinics in our nation. They are staffed by shoddy abortionists and unqualified workers who are the bottom of the barrel in the medical world that routinely lie to women about the safety of their operations. Some are sexual predators, as Ms. Hart attested to, who use abortion clinics as a means of accessing victims. Women deserve better than this, and we urge anyone considering abortion to instead contact an abortion alternatives center in their area and get the help they need.
