It’s a story similar to one we’ve heard before: an abortionist currently “under review” by the state continues to commit abortions while the medical board and abortion lobby appear undisturbed.

Recall the case of Kermit Gosnell, who ran what has been dubbed an abortion “house of horrors” in Philadelphia for years, while, despite several complaints, authorities turned a blind eye to his actions.

Now, the pro-life group Operation Rescue has reported that Harold O. Alexander, charged by the Maryland Board of Medicine in 2015 for conducting surgical abortions at an unlicensed facility, has been caught allegedly doing it again – and in response, the medical board intends to keep the complaint “on file.”

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

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

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

Abortion Pill  Cold Pill Planned Parenthood

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

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

Excerpt of Planned Parenthood letter to OSHPD

Excerpt of Planned Parenthood letter to OSHPD

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

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

Abortion Pill  Cold Pill Planned Parenthood

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mary Gatter Abortion Risks Planned Parenthood.

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

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

Below is a portion of an updated report on the abortion related death of Lakisha Wilson, from Cheryl Sullenger published at Operation Rescue:

Lakisha Wilson fathers-donation-refusal-highlighted2

When Lakisha Wilson renewed her driver’s license on May 25, 2012, she checked the permission box to become an organ donor. She had no idea that she would be dead less than two years later, or that a simple flick of the pen at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles would become a roadblock to preventing those responsible for her death from being held accountable.

Lakisha Wilson was a 22-year old African-American woman who died in March 2014, as the result of second trimester abortion complications at Preterm, an abortion facility located in Cleveland, Ohio.

Lakish Wilson 8846_450713531525543038_n

Her death not only raised questions about patient safety at the high-volume abortion business, but also brought to light another extremely sensitive issue that has rarely been discussed — until now. That issue concerns the high-pressure tactics of organ procurement organizations to secure organ donation consent from families of women like Wilson, who die from abortion complications and other surgeries.

The news has been full of reports in recent months about organ procurement companies contracting with Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses to obtain aborted baby remains for “donation,” often to the financial benefit of both the abortion provider and the organ procurement organization. However, there is another aspect to the issue of organ procurement involving dead abortion patients, which also deserves public discussion.

Certainly, organ donation to those in need of transplants is a noble and life-saving decision under most circumstances. At any given time, there are over 121,000 people awaiting organ transplants in the U.S. It is true that some tragically die before a suitable donor can be found.

“We support those who wish to willingly become organ donors. In most cases, it saves lives and gives the families of donors comfort knowing that the death of their loved one will enable others to live,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “However, in Lakisha Wilson’s case, we have serious concerns about how the donation process was handled, and how it may have actually protected those responsible for her death.”

Second-Trimester Abortion Gone Bad

Wilson’s nightmare began on March 21, 2014, when she reported to the Preterm abortion clinic on Shaker Boulevard in Cleveland, Ohio, for an abortion at 19 weeks, 4 days, according to a Preterm ultrasound report that was done about two weeks earlier. (Ultrasound results from a different facility placed her closer to 23 weeks at the time of her abortion.)

Wilson suffered almost immediate complications during her second trimester abortion, which was conducted by Preterm abortionist Lisa Perriera. Even though Wilson’s blood pressure was dropping fast, Perriera finished the abortion before tending to Wilson’s dangerously escalating medical emergency. By then, Wilson had stopped breathing and suffered cardiac arrest.

7 facts the average American doesn’t know about legalized abortion

Posted in Abortion History, Abortion Vintage, Roe with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2016 by saynsumthn

As we enter another year of legalized abortion on demand, many Americans are unaware of many facts regarding the history of abortion in the United States. To correct some of these misnomers, we have listed seven facts that the average American does not know about legal abortion.

Keep abortion legal

1. Abortion was legal prior to 1973 in certain states

In 1967, Colorado became the first state in the US to legalize abortion. The bill was introduced by then Representative Richard D. Lamm. In 1968, Georgia legalized abortion. Previously, in 1966, Mississippi had legalized the procedure for cases of rape. Then during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York in 1970, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state. Which brings me to the next fact.

2. Few women died from abortion the year prior to it’s legalization:

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

Despite the repeated lie that thousands or millions of women died from illegal abortion, there was then as now no law requiring the deaths of women from abortion to be reported. Stats from the Center for Disease Control show that, the year prior to Roe (1972) 66 women were reportedly killed from abortion. Out of those 39 were illegal, 24 were from legal abortion and 2 were unknown. However, in the year abortion was legalized (1973), the CDC documents that more women died from legal abortion than from illegal abortions.

3. Roe in the Supreme Court case never had an abortion:

Norma McCorvey ABC News Screen

The 1973 abortion case was brought to the Supreme Court on the basis that Norma McCorvey, the Roe in the case was raped and needed an abortion. The fact is that she was never raped and never wanted an abortion. In fact, Norma is also now pro-life and is seeking to overturn the infamous decision.

4. The language for Roe was written years before the case was decided

In 1962 the American Law Institute (ALI), comprised of judges, lawyers, and law professors who suggest recommendations for revisions to state laws proposed liberal abortion language as part of the “model penal code.” As a result, between the years 1962 and 1973, nineteen states reformed their abortion laws and enacted all or part of the institute’s reform model. Hawaii, Alaska, New York, and Washington removed all limitations for performing an abortion. Portions of the language read very close to what the Justices eventually enacted and included the “exceptions” language that opened the door for abortion on demand:

“[a] licensed physician is justified in terminating a pregnancy if he believes there is a substantial risk
(1) that continuation of the pregnancy would gravely impair the physical and mental health of the mother or
(2) that the child would be born with grave physical or mental defect, or
(3) that the pregnancy resulted from rape, incest, or other felonious intercourse.”

5. Roe V. Wade allowed for unrestricted abortions up to viability (24 weeks) with states deciding thereafter (viability measures have now drastically improved)

According to Paul Pauker who summarized Roe for Live Action previously, in Roe the Supreme Court adopted a trimester framework for state regulation of abortion. The Court held: in the first trimester of pregnancy, states may not regulate abortion; in the second trimester, states may regulate abortion only in ways related to protecting the mother’s health; and in the third trimester, states may “regulate, and even proscribe, abortion except where necessary, in appropriate medical judgment, for the preservation of the life or health of the mother.”

6. Doe v. Bolton, the companion case to Roe, opened the door for abortion on demand by allowing the “health of the mother” exception” to be defined however the doctor chose.

Pauker states that the language that seemed to allow a third trimester ban on abortion was deceptive, because in Doe, the Court gave “health” such a broad definition that states have been prevented from successfully imposing bans on abortion, including late-term abortions.

Sandra Cano img22

Testimony from Sandra Cano the Former Doe of Doe v. Bolton, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 23, 2005 showed that, like the Roe case, she never wanted an abortion:

“The Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision bears my name. I am Sandra Cano, the former ”Doe” of Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton is the companion case to Roe v. Wade. Using my name and life, Doe v. Bolton falsely created the health exception that led to abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. How it got there is still pretty much a mystery to me. I only sought legal assistance to get a divorce from my husband and to get my children from foster care. I was very vulnerable: poor and pregnant with my fourth child, but abortion never crossed my mind. Although it apparently was utmost in the mind of the attorney from whom I sought help.

7. Today, based on many lies, tragically abortions are legal in all stages of pregnancy

Late term abortion Daily Signal 2015

The U.S. is one of only seven developed countries in which late-term abortions after 20 weeks (five months) are allowed, according to a 2015 report from the Charlotte Lozier Institute. The above graphic published by the Daily Signal reveals just how many states allow abortions through all nine months of pregnancy.

Media elevates abortionist with 1year of Tx license as “expert” on abortion safety

Posted in Abortion Death List, Abortion History, Abortionist, Illegal abortion, Texas Abortion, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Texas abortion provider has posed a fascinating question to a local news outlet by asking how many women will wind up in the ER? It is a great question and one pro-lifers wished the media would report on given the rash of abortion related emergencies that continue to go on all across the nation in relative silence.

Planned Parenthood spokane 911 Oct 2015

But, despite the mounds of evidence that abortion is not safe, are being closed for unsafe conditions or that women are being rushed out of clinics and Planned Parenthood centers in ambulances, and they sometimes die or that abortion doctors and staff are not the pristine pillars of society they paint themselves to be, the media hides the truth from American women.

And in a brilliant marketing scheme along with the collaboration of the main stream media the abortion industry also hides the truth from American women. In fact, what the abortion doctor mentioned above was really complaining about was not the injuries and deaths from legal abortion, but the fact that laws regulating abortion clinics are also closing many due in large part to the fact that abortion facilities are generally incapable of complying with basic surgical standards. So, how should we fix the problem, by removing the regulations, of course! And how does he sway the media to do an exclusive on him, he claims women are having illegal abortions.

Texas Ab doc

Abortionist Bhavik Kumar, works at Whole Woman’s abortion clinics in San Antonio and Fort Worth. Kumar is a graduate of Texas Tech Health Sciences Center School of Medicine in Lubbock, Texas and completed his 3rd and 4th year of medical school at the El Paso, Texas branch in 2010 and then completed his residency training this past July, 2013. He is being promoted as an expert in abortion when, in fact, he was only licensed by the State of Texas last year.

Texas Ab doc 2

In his interview with the Texas Observer Kumar admits that there are few doctors who will do abortions, “there’s less of us providing this care, so it can be isolating for us,” he said.

Despite the fact that unsafe conditions were present inside Texas abortion facilities, the abortionist was complaining about the impact of Texas’ HB2, one of the most restrictive laws in the country which has closed a number of abortion clinics statewide. He claimed that women who are seeking abortions and coming from the border have tried self-aborting where he asked, “how many women will wind up in the ER and not come to the this clinic instead?”

Adding, “The reason that they have to drive that far is because there are fewer clinics, given other laws like the admitting privileges and ambulatory surgical center requirement. And, you have to pay mostly out of pocket, or use abortion funds, in order to pay for your procedure. So, that sometimes adds cost because you’ve had to wait an extra few weeks because you couldn’t access a clinic, you have to stay overnight. If you have kids, you have to find somebody to take care of your kids, [take] time off of work. If you’re not able to get the funds within 24 hours, you have to wait even longer to get the money to pay for it.”

Wrong question Mr. abortion doctor, the real question is how many women are rushed to the ER from legal abortion? It is obvious what Bhavik Kumar is doing here. He is resurrecting an old tactic, used successfully in the early days of legalized abortion and that is to claim that women die or will be hospitalized when abortion is illegal or cannot be accessed easily.

NARAL Pin

Case in point, during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state.

NY Constance Cook

Assemblywoman Constance E. Cook stood to the floor during that 1970 debate to push the lie of unsafe abortion, stating, “I submit that we have abortion on demand in the state of New York right now. Any woman that wants an abortion can get one–if she has $25, she has it done here, under the most abominable circumstances,” and that prohibition only drives abortion underground.”

This clip from the film “Choice at Risk” gives a historical glimpse :

Repealing Abortion Laws (4:18) from Dorothy Fadiman on Vimeo.

The deciding vote was cast by Democrat Assemblyman, George Michaels, who told the LA Times that for years he had been told by local party leaders not to vote for the repeal of the abortion ban, and he pledged not to. For two years he had followed the party line.

ASSY George Michaels cast vote to legalize abortion

    I would vote no, hoping the bill would pass,” he said. “I was not doing the right thing.”

    In April, 1970, the night before he left for Albany, Michaels spent an evening with his daughter-in-law, Sarah.

    Sarah asked him what would happen when the abortion bill came up for a vote again. There was a chance it would pass, he told her.

    What if it doesn’t?” she asked.

    Maybe next year,” he said.

    Michaels says he has never been able to forget what his son’s young wife told him next:

    In the meantime, thousands of women will be mutilated and die because of that stupid Legislature.

    Boy, that rocked me,” Michaels says. “That rocked me.”

The National Abortion Rights Action League, NARAL, also lied about women dying from illegal abortions. One of their early founders, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who later repented of his pro-abortion actions and views, described what they did early on:

Bernard Nathanson

    “We persuaded the media that the cause of permissive abortion was a liberal, enlightened, sophisticated one,” recalls the movement’s co-founder. “Knowing that if a true poll were taken, we would be soundly defeated, we simply fabricated the results of fictional polls. We announced to the media that we had taken polls and that 60 percent of Americans were in favor of permissive abortion. This is the tactic of the self-fulfilling lie. Few people care to be in the minority. We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000, but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000.”

McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Robert P. George breaks it down further when he writes this about the NARAL founder:

    Nathanson and his friends lied—relentlessly and spectacularly—about the number of women who died each year from illegal abortions. Their pitch to voters, lawmakers, and judges was that women are going to seek abortion in roughly equal numbers whether it is lawful or not. The only effect of outlawing it, they claimed, is to limit pregnant women to unqualified and often uncaring practitioners, “back alley butchers.” So, Nathanson and others insisted, laws against abortion are worse than futile: they do not save fetal lives; they only cost women’s lives.

abortion-rally-1970s

For clarification, stats show that, in the year prior to Roe, the CDC disputed the lie that thousands of women died from illegal abortion as shown in this table from their surveillance report on abortion.

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

Groups like Live Action News, Operation Rescue, and many others have been documenting the horrendous way that women are treated by abortion providers. And, it wasn’t that long ago when the State of Pennsylvania closed what has been dubbed a “House of Horrors” abortion clinic owned by the now convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell. His abortion clinic, like many in the United States was operating legally for many years while abortion advocates lobbied for little to no restrictions on abortion clinics. Gosnell, who was convicted of three counts of first-degree murder in the death of three babies that prosecutors said were delivered alive and subsequently killed, and was responsible for the abortion-related death of one of his patents was no anomaly. His story and the fate of the women and tragically the babies taken to his “House of Horrors” facility are the true mirror of unrestricted abortion in America.

While Kumar and the abortion lobby in general try and rehash old scare tactics about women dying in the streets if abortion is in any way restricted, they remain silent about women their industry injures along the way. But, as long as Kumar is worried about women being rushed to the ER, this reminder from the Associated Press describing Gosnell’s LEGAL abortion clinic should be of interest:

Women went to Dr. Kermit Gosnell to end their pregnancies. Many came away with life-threatening infections and punctured organs; some still had fetal parts inside them when they arrived at nearby hospitals in dire need of emergency care.

Media focus is Planned Parenthood shooting while ignoring violence at other medical centers

Posted in Planned Parenthood media mouthpieces with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 29, 2015 by saynsumthn

“Shots fired at clinic,” those are words we have all heard over and over again this weekend after a deranged man, Robert Lewis Dear, went to a Planned Parenthood and shot and killed three people including officer Garrett Swasey, unrelated to the abortion clinic, injuring five officers and four civilians.

Shots fired Planned Parenthood

But, I am not talking about Planned Parenthood, I am talking about an October shooting at a VA Clinic that the national media has not reported about. I wonder why? It’s a clinic, involves a gun, and police right? All ingredients for a sensational story- one would think.

The pro-abortion media tries to paint Planned Parenthood as a regular “health center” yet, when there is a shooting at a Planned Parenthood it becomes headline story for days, weeks, months on end while other medical facility shootings take back stage or get no reporting at all.

One example is this one in Rockford, Illinois, September 28,2015.

From ABC7Chicago:

Steven Dummer W=315&MaxH=315

    A gunman who held police at bay for hours inside a medical clinic in Rockford after firing shots inside the building is now in custody, police say. Police said Steven Dummer, of Rochelle, opened fire on the second floor of the Crusader Community Health Clinic in the 1100-block of Broadway around 2:30 p.m. Monday. Anywhere from two to five shots were fired, police said. Police responded quickly and all patients and staff made it out of the building safely. No one was injured in the incident.

According to the Rockford Register Star:

    After a four-hour standoff with Rockford police, Steven A. Dummer, 36, of Rochelle, surrendered without incident and was arrested on charges of aggravated discharge of a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon. He is being held in the Winnebago County Jail in lieu of a $100,000 bond. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 29. It was not clear Tuesday why Dummer was at the clinic or what prompted him to shoot. However, police did say he had threatened suicide. While Dummer negotiated with police from a second-floor lobby, Eggers said the staff went above and beyond evacuating the clinic. “We had pediatricians carrying children out,” he said. “We had physicians caring for people in the parking lot. We had staff driving people home who couldn’t get to their cars in the parking lot. We have a pharmacy in the clinic, but patients weren’t able to use it. So we had staff picking up prescriptions at other locations.

In June of this year a doctor was shot and killed at a Texas medical clinic, reports India West:

    Indian American cardiologist Suresh Gadasalli, who performed the world’s first simultaneous hybrid revascularization, was shot dead by his friend and business associate who then committed suicide in Odessa, Texas, police said. Gadasalli, 53, was shot dead by 60-year-old patient and business associate Ayyasamy Thangam at the Healthy Heart Center June 11, according to a release issued by the Odessa Police Department.

His patients reacted in shock as NewsWest9 reported:

    A day after Dr. Suresh Gadasalli was shot to death at the Healthy Heart Clinic, his patients are remembering their caretaker and friend.
    “I was shocked,” said Cathy Connally. “I couldn’t believe it. I said, ‘No, that can’t be true. He was so nice.’ I thought, ‘who would hurt him?'” ….Thursday afternoon, tragedy struck when one of Dr. Gadasalli’s patients and business partners, Ayyasamy Thangam, shot Gadasalli multiple times before ending his own life. “It said Doctor Shot at Healthy Heart Center and I thought, ‘wait.’ I looked at my friend and I said it’s the Healthy Heart Center. I said it’s Dr. Gadasalli,”

A Boston cardiologist was shot and killed on his way into his offices this past January, reports the Wall Street Journal:

    Police said they believe the apparent gunman, 55-year-old Stephen Pasceri of Millbury, Mass., was targeting Dr. Davidson when the gunman entered the Carl J. and Ruth Shapiro Cardiovascular Center about 11 a.m. Mr. Pasceri went to the surgeon’s second-floor office and asked to speak to him, police said. After an altercation in a foyer between the waiting room and an examination room, the assailant shot Dr. Davidson twice, police said. Mr. Pasceri was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound in an examination room, they said.

In September, an Ohio man had planned to take several weapons to a clinic before police apprehended him, according to this Fox8 report:

Charles R. Shaw, 76, killed his own son during an argument on Sherwin Drive in Twinsburg Tuesday evening, police said. According to the preliminary report from the Summit County Medical Examiner’s Office, Charles Shaw was angry about his medications from Cleveland Clinic. “Charles got two weapons, a rifle and a 38 caliber, and was going to Cleveland Clinic to do some damage,” the report said. “Scott Shaw attempted to stop his father and was then shot by his father.” When officers arrived, Charles Shaw was reloading his gun near the body of 55-year-old Scott R. Shaw. Police said Charles Shaw refused to put down his weapon and pointed it at police. That’s when an officer fatally shot him.

And this month, a man killed his step-daughter and himself at a Florida hospital. November 23, 2015 WTSP reported:

    A man killed a woman visiting a hospital Monday then turned the gun on himself Monday morning, authorities said. Alonna Tedesco, 41, was shot on the third floor of Florida Hospital, north of downtown Tampa, then was rushed to the emergency room, where she later died, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Col. Donna Lusczynski said. The shooter, who also died, has been identified as Tedesco’s step-father, 70-year-old Steven Reynolds.

And there were more:

In March, a man and a woman were found dead after the man stormed a medical office building in downtown Fresno and shot the mother of his five children at close range. (more here)

In January, VA psychologist Timothy Fjordbak, was allegedly shot and killed by Jerry Serrato, on the fourth floor of an El Paso Veteran Affairs Clinic (read here).

In January, a California man, Vincent Heard, was arrested on suspicion of shooting a nurse inside a mental health urgent care facility. The nurse, a 24-year-old man whose name was not released, was taken to the hospital after he suffered a gunshot wound. (more here).

MEDIA MISLEADS

Robert Lewis Dear EefUYAAkYmH

The media would lead you to believe that shootings at medical facilities happen only to abortion clinics, but this is misleading. While there have been 8 other people killed in the past 40 years at abortion clinics, there are numerous incidents at medical facilities across the nation that do not involve abortion.

According to a study in Annals of Emergency Medicine, in 2000-2011 the United States had 154 hospital-related shootings.

    91 (59%) inside the hospital and 63 (41%) outside on hospital grounds.
    235 injured or dead victims.
    The Emergency Department environs were the most common site (29%), followed by the parking lot (23%), and patient rooms (19%).
    Most events involved a determined shooter with a strong motive defined by a grudge (27%), suicide (21%), “euthanizing” an ill relative (14%), and prisoner escape (11%).
    Ambient society violence (9%) and mentally unstable patients (4%) were comparatively infrequent.
    The most common victim was the perpetrator (45%).
    Hospital employees composed of 20% of victims.
    -Physicians (3%) and nurses (5%) victims were relatively infrequent.
    In 23% of shootings with the Emergency Department, the weapon was a security officer’s gun that was taken by the perpetrator.

According to stats collected by the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries, homicides involving shootings occurred at Dentist offices, Chiropractor, Outpatient Care Centers, Kidney Dialysis centers, hospital and surgical centers as well as psychological and mental health clinics.

Fatal occupation workplace health shootings'

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), in 2013, healthcare workers reported an estimated 9,200 workplace violence incidents, with the majority of these perpetrated by patients or their family members. This represents 67% of all nonfatal violence-related injuries from an industry that only represents 11.5% of all workers.

A 2013 report released by the Federal Bureau of Investigations indicated an increasing trend in workplace active shooter incidents from an average of 6.4 incidents per year for the first 7 years of the study to an average of 16.4 per year in the last 7 years of the study. Some recent studies have indicated that the healthcare environment is not excluded from the increase in this particular type of violence. One recent study on hospital-based shootings reported an increase from 9 active shooter incidents per year during the 2000 to 2005 time period to almost 17 per year during the 2006 to 2011 time period.

Workplace homicide shootings

The Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries (CFOI) conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provides an annual count of fatal work injuries in the United States, including homicides. From 2006 to 2010, an average of 551 workers per year were killed as a result of work-related homicides. In 2010 (the last year for which final data are available), CFOI reported a total of 518 workplace homicides, or 11 percent of all fatal work injuries that occurred that year. A total of 77 of those were multiple-fatality homicide incidents in which two or more workers were killed, including 69 homicides and 8 assailant suicides, all of whom were in work status at the time of the incident.

Shootings accounted for 78 percent of all workplace homicides in 2010 (405 fatal injuries). More than four-fifths (83 percent) of these workplace homicides from shootings occurred in the private sector, while only 17 percent of such shootings occurred in government.

While I strongly condemn any violence, I find the way the media reports on abortion clinic violence to be slanted in favor of the abortion agenda. Otherwise, every health clinic or medical facility shooting would be national news, and it is not. This, of course, does not mitigate any outrage nor condemnation of what Dear did whatever his motives end up being.

But, if you are to look honestly you can see that the national media sensationalizes violence at abortion or Planned Parenthood clinics while not reporting shootings at all other medical centers the same way. They censor the acts of violence against Christians, churches, and pro-life people. In addition, while the topic is Planned Parenthood, the media will resurrect the murder of late term abortion doctor George Tiller while continuing to censor the fact that women die from abortion including a Black women who was left bleeding INSIDE Planned Parenthood. For a look at that, just do a search on this site for Tonya Reaves.

Although speculations that Dear was motivated by recent Center for Medical Progress videos which documented how Planned Parenthood engaged in a baby parts harvesting operation, his neighbors in North Carolina say they never heard him discuss abortion or religion. According to reports, many considered him strange and even delusional, while some also assumed he might be dangerous and kept their kids indoors when they saw him. Others called Dear weird and said they kept an eye on him because he seemed paranoid, telling people that he was a government agent and knew important secrets as a result.

Whatever authorities or the media claim Dear’s motive is, one thing is for certain, he is not pro-life!

Abortion Clinic that killed Black woman to donate abortion fee to Black Lives Movement

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , on July 1, 2015 by saynsumthn

Despite Blacks coming together to speak up for Black Lives many are ignoring the Black unborn child in the womb targeted by abortion.

In addition, at least one abortion clinic has publicly pledged to donate a portion of each abortion they perform to a new Black Movement in Cleveland.

Movement for Black Lives 2

From Friday July 24 to Sunday July 26th, 2015, hundreds of Black activists from around the country convene in Cleveland, Ohio for the inaugural Movement for Black Lives.

From the event website:

    Now, after months of intense action, our people need space to begin the creation of a collective mission that matches the intensity, scale, urgency, and promise of the moment. This convening presents an opportunity for us to reflect on our histories of struggle, build a sense of fellowship that transcends geographical boundaries and begin to heal from the many traumas we face. Whether through topical trainings, engaging conversations or just kicking back with each other— we will strengthen a budding community that is diverse in voices, origin, perspective and strategy.

    Open, and created by many voices, The Movement for Black Lives Convening will be a space to realize that promise fully on our terms as Black people. We invite all Black people invested in this movement to join the convening to shape our present and chart our future.

Movement for Black Lives

It is called the “Movement for Black Lives” and although abortion is the number one killer of Blacks in the womb, there doesn’t seem to be a voice for the unborn Black child at this event.

There are, however, abortion clinics jumping on board.

Case in point is the Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland.

On their Facebook page they write:

Preterm Abortion clinic Black Lives Movement

    From July 1 – July 14, Preterm will offer our patients the option of having a portion of their abortion fee donated to the Movement for Black Lives Convening being held in Cleveland, and Preterm has pledged to make a donation to support the event. From July 24 – July 26, hundreds of activists from around the country will convene in Cleveland to build their movement, strategies, and demands.

    Preterm is proud to support the national convening and the activists coming to Cleveland. For us, reproductive justice includes racial justice.

Tragically, Preterm abortion clinic in Cleveland is also responsible for the abortion death of a Black woman.

Anyone think the Black Movement will return their donations?

I hope so, but, I have my doubts.

According to Operation Rescue, 22-year-old Lakisha Wilson, a Black female, died after her abortion at the Preterm facility in March of 2014.

Operation Rescue has obtained a 911 recording and Computer Aided Dispatch transcript that indicates a patient of Preterm, a Cleveland, Ohio, abortion clinic, has died.

Listen to how callous the abortion clinic was as they notified 911 that Lakisha Wilson was “not breathing”.

In addition, Preterm apparently covered for 40 year-old Joseph Coles, a child rapist who sexually assaulted his stepdaughter when she was 10-years-old.

At 12, the stepdaughter became pregnant and her mother took her to the Cleveland Surgi-Center abortion clinic. The abortion was botched and the girl almost died from internal hemorrhaging.

Following the abortion, Coles persuaded the girl’s mother to put her on birth control; however, in 2004 the child again became pregnant by Coles and was taken to Planned Parenthood in Shaker Heights.

There she refused to submit to the abortion at that time but relented three days later and was taken to the Preterm Abortion Clinic in Cleveland.

Police were not made aware of the rapes until June of the following year, proving that, although all of those clinics were required to do a mandatory report, none apparently did.

This information came from a study Life Dynamics did documenting how abortion clinics cover for pedophiles. You can read that entire report here.

Sadly, it has not been the Black Lives Matter or Movement for Black Lives leadership which has condemned the deaths of Black women from abortion, but, rather the Black pro-life leadership as evidenced by this press conference:

And this event which took place in Selma recently (here.)

The Movement for Black Lives says they want to speak out against racism.

They are asking for everyone to get on board, let’s hope that includes those who fight the racism of abortion as well:

    To do this we are calling on everyone in our community to contribute. We want folks to bring whatever work they are doing and organizing around into the Convening—from state violence to sustainable farming to holistic healing—so welcome any workshop proposals. Anyone interested in suggesting a workshop is encouraged to submit a proposal.

(Read what some Black leaders have said about abortion and Planned Parenthood here)

Perhaps they can join the pro-life community in asking their political leaders to defund Planned Parenthood, an organization founded by a racist.

Not only does Planned Parenthood perform the largest number of abortions in the nation, targeting the Black community but they were founded on racist eugenics. They have never denounced their racist founder Margaret Sanger who admittedly gave Klan speeches, yet they receive half a Billion in tax money annually.

If you believe that the slaughter of innocent Black babies in the womb should be part of any Black Movement, send a message to the hashtag #M4BL then submit a pro-life workshop and let me know if it is accepted.
