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.

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.

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.”

Soon after, Thornton apologized and resigned from Planned Parenthood.1. In 2012, Tony Ray Thornton (pictured right), the president and CEO of Planned Parenthood in Lubbock, was arrested for exposing his genitals to a 43-year-old male in a Texas park.

“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.”

In 2010, Thornton helped Planned Parenthood purchase a closed facility — renamed Planned Parenthood Women’s Health Center, Inc. — after the owners retired.

2. In 2005, Planned Parenthood employee Aymara Castro said Planned Parenthood of Houston and Southeast Texas subjected her to “unlawful sexual harassment, and to disparate terms, conditions and privileges of employment because of her sex.” She won her claim, filed with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), which found Planned Parenthood had “failed to take corrective action to stop the harassment and retaliated against her for engaging in protected activity.”

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.

The complaint, filed in 2000, does not state where the incidents occurred. While there is no indication the assaults occurred at Planned Parenthood, news reports show that the organization admitted Attig occasionally committed abortions for them after he was targeted by an explosive device in 2001.The commission’s statement of charges alleges that Attig repeatedly spanked, kissed and hugged a patient, also sending her “copious amounts” of inappropriate and suggestive e-mail.

On July 13, 2001, the Board suspended Attig’s license but issued a stay allowing him to continue to practice on a probationary term.

Many additional troubling actions by Planned Parenthood have been documented, including a failure to report child sexual abuse. Reports also show that victims of sex trafficking are sometimes taken to Planned Parenthood centers for forced abortions by their pimps.

Planned Parenthood abortionist’s license suspended for failing to comply with state law on 13-year-old’s abortion

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2017 by saynsumthn

|  From Live Action News

Allen Palmer (image credit: abortiondocs.org)

A Kansas abortion doctor is blaming Planned Parenthood after his medical license was suspended for failing to comply with a state law to preserve fetal tissue taken from a 13-year-old sexual abuse victim after her abortion.

Under state law, physicians are required to preserve fetal tissue extracted from abortions committed on patients under 14 years old and submit the tissue to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) or laboratory designated by the director of the KBI.

But osteopathic physician/abortionist Allen S. Palmer testified that Planned Parenthood never trained him how to handle these cases in order to comply with state law.

Kansas State Law on fetal tissue from abortion

Palmer was a part-time “contractor” for Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood of Kansas City and Mid-Missouri, committing abortions one weekend per month for five years. He also worked holidays, including Christmas. On December 22, 2014, Palmer performed a first-trimester abortion at Planned Parenthood on a 13-year-old child who had been sexually assaulted by a 19 year-old male.

In his testimony before the Kansas Board of Healing Arts, Palmer made excuses for why he was unaware that the patient was a minor, laying blame squarely on the policies of Planned Parenthood. “I was not informed that she was a minor under age 14. As a result, there was no need to retain tissue,” he told the Board.

Yes, I failed to preserve the tissue, but only because I was not informed the patient was 13 less than 14 years old. I was never educated on Planned Parenthood policies and procedures on termination of pregnancy on a patient less than 14 years old, including I was never shown a KBI kit or received any information about its requirements.

Live Action News has reported numerous incidents where Planned Parenthood failed to report child sexual abuse, resulting in some victims being returned to their abusers.

Former Planned Parenthood staffer Ramona Treviño told Live Action president Lila Rose that instead of helping employees to identify and report potential abuse at her facility, Planned Parenthood instructed staff on how to identify undercover journalists and whether they were being recorded.

In addition to Kansas, records indicate Palmer once owned a NAF affiliated abortion facility in Missouri. Pro-life group Operation Rescue says Palmer also committed abortions at South Wind Women’s Center in Wichita and Whole Women’s Health in Peoria, Illinois. An online search result indicates he may also work at Hope Clinic for Women.

Palmer told the Board that in Illinois, he performed abortions on a dozen minor girls in “twenty years,” and that those cases were reported to police. But he testified that he had not committed an abortion on a minor in Kansas prior to that 2014 incident, because those abortions were usually performed by Planned Parenthood’s medical director, “Dr. [Orrin] Moore.”

[…] I was informed by Doctor Moore… the clinical medical director, that terminations of pregnancy performed on minors were done only by him. Therefore, I never received training or information regarding Planned Parenthood’s policies and procedures to ensure compliance with the law when terminating pregnancy in minors and preservation of tissue. I was never shown or trained on a KBI kit and its requirements.

Palmer claimed it was the duty of Planned Parenthood’s counselors to determine the patient’s age. His job was to check the ultrasound, not to review the patient’s paperwork. According to Palmer, it was common practice for the counselor, not the doctor, to be informed if a woman had a serious medical condition as well.  In other words, abortionists at Planned Parenthood didn’t make it their business to be aware of critical medical information — they were only there to commit abortions. So much for patient care.

Palmer then detailed the abortion process at Planned Parenthood (emphasis added):

They get a blood test with a lab tech. The ultrasound is performed by a clinical staff member, and then receive counseling from the clinic counselor before seeing me. When I see the patient, I’m assuming that they’ve been screened and counseled by Planned Parenthood staff according to their policies and procedures and according to the state law and have been determined to be candidates for an abortion.

After screening and counseling has been completed, I see the patient. At that time I ask if she has any questions about the procedure. The patient and I sign the consent. After we both sign the consent, the patient waits 30 minutes before the procedure can begin. In reviewing the patient’s records, I cannot find a consent form that she and I signed.

Termination of pregnancy occurs in a surgical room. Once a patient enters the room, I first check the computer to make sure I have the correct patient by asking her name. I review the ultrasound and verify the gestational age. Once again, confirming that the patient understands the procedure and I ask her if there is any questions. Then I proceed with the termination.

Once the procedure is completed and tissue removed and taken to another area of the clinic, evaluated, the patient is taken to a post-op area. I examine the tissue with the surgical tech. After I examine the tissue, I leave it to the surgical tech to handle it from there. In the room — in the room the tissue was taken, there was no KBI evidence kit or anything to establish chain of custody for evidence or to instruct any preservation of tissue.

Palmer further defended his actions by claiming that there was no signed operative consent before he did the abortion. The 78-year-old abortionist was represented by his attorney, Thomas L. Theis, who made the point that Planned Parenthood was in the business of performing abortions on all ages. Theis discovered that although the abortion was committed in December, the “consent form” was not signed until January.

A copy of the Board’s final order mentions this fact:

Planned Parenthood procedures not followed for child sexual abuse

Although Palmer met with the child before the procedure, he did not guess her age because “you cannot do that with women anymore.” Instead, Palmer depended on Planned Parenthood staffers to “receive the proper training and knowledge of their own policies and procedures in termination of pregnancies in minors and alert me to the fact that there was a minor left alone — let alone a minor under 14.”

Palmer stated that he discovered the victim was a minor after he committed the abortion when Planned Parenthood’s chief operating officer, Aaron Samulcek, “informed me that the clinic had a system failure.” He added that nurse manager Christi Campbell, who performed the ultrasound, “came up to me crying and hugging and apologized for not telling me the patient was less than 14 years old.”

Palmer also claimed that staffer Marlo Lubron told him that “the entire nursing staff were unaware the patient was 14 — or less than 14 years old,” adding that Stephanie Williams, the facility’s health center manager, “as well as Evelyn, the surgical tech” were later fired.

While the Board found it “apparent” that there were “inadequacies” in Planned Parenthood’s policies, they determined that it did not absolve Palmer from “his independent duty to his patient and to comply with the law of the State of Kansas.”

Planned Parenthood procedures inadequate on child sexual abuse Allen Palmer suspension

Palmer begged the Board to allow him to keep his license, telling members, “I am no longer performing abortions in any state. I closed my office eight years ago. I recently gave up my Illinois license. My Kansas license is due to expire in October. I do not plan on renewing it. After closing my office, I became certified as a wound specialist and work in a wound center part-time in Missouri.”

In the final order, the Board determined that Palmer had a responsibility to know the age of his abortion patients and comply with the law regardless of Planned Parenthood’s failures. As a result, the Kansas Board suspended Palmer’s medical license for ninety days in the state, effective September 18,2017.

Late-term abortion facility caught on tape discussing ending a baby’s life

Posted in Abortionist, Euthanasia, Euthanesia, Journal Contraception, Late term abortion, Society of Family Planning with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 22, 2017 by saynsumthn

A newly released undercover recording captures a late-term abortion facility staffer telling a “healthy woman posing as 25 weeks pregnant” that they will “euthanize the fetus.”  The disturbing recording was released by Abortion Free New Mexico and Priests for Life, and was published by the New Mexico group, Pro-life Witness. The undercover phone call was placed to Southwestern Women’s Options (SWO), an Albuquerque, New Mexico, late-term abortion facility operated by infamous abortionist Curtis Boyd.

What appears to be is missing from this disturbing conversation are questions that one would expect an abortion facility to ask, such as the caller’s reasons for seeking an abortion. But in listening to the exchange below, there seems to be no interest in finding out what “health reason” would compel a pregnant woman to seek an abortion so late in her pregnancy:

The basic information sought by facilities like Southwestern Women’s Options is how far along the woman thinks she is and whether or not she can pay. Contrary to what the public is led to believe, it is clear from this video — and others — that late-term abortions are not being performed for reasons of health alone. In several states, including New Mexico, taxpayers are funding late-term abortions done for any reason the woman desires.

It should come as no surprise, then, that abortionists with the abortion industry’s leader, Planned Parenthoodbelieve all abortions are “medically necessary” and should be funded by taxpayers.

In the video above, one of the first things the facility tells the caller is that if she is able to get to their location quickly (before another week goes by and prices increase further), an abortion at 25 weeks will cost her $8,500. If the abortion industry really wanted to help poor women to have “abortion access,” and “free abortions,” then why are they charging so much? Because abortions, whether paid for by taxpayers or by private individuals, have never been “free.” Despite what the abortion industry might claim, these procedures are (as you can see) quite lucrative.

In 2015, a woman who sought a late-term abortion from Colorado abortionist Warren Hern claims she paid $25,000 to end the life of her baby at 36 weeks. More on that case later.

In detailing the late-term abortion process, the facility staffer tells the caller that the late-term, 25 week abortion is a “three to four day process” of “labor and delivery” which will produce a “stillborn” baby.

On the first day, the doctor, referred to as “she,” will “use a medication.” To do what to the baby, exactly? To “euthanize the fetus” and “stop the fetal heart on that first day,” according to the staffer.

One would expect to hear a term like “euthanize” when taking an animal into a veterinarian’s office. But this callous terminology is fairly common among abortion providers. In the previously mentioned case of a woman seeking an abortion at 36 weeks, costing $25,000, abortionist Warren Hern’s Colorado facility told the woman they would “euthanize” her baby:

“The whole first day was counseling and testing to make sure it was safe to do the procedure. They want to make sure you completely understand what is going to happen and that no one is pressuring you into the decision. At the end of the day, I signed all the paperwork, and the doctor injected the baby with a drug that, over a few hours, slowed her heart to still. It was a very, very difficult day. Euthanizing the baby is, obviously, a very hard thing to do. After the injection, he asked how I was feeling, and I just said, “I feel so sad. I’m going to miss her.”

You might be asking, “What is done to ‘euthanize’ a preborn baby?” To put it bluntly, an off-label use of a heart medication is used to cause cardiac arrest in the child. Southwestern Women’s Options states on its website, “Once the cervix is ready, medications will be administered which will start labor and result in the delivery of a stillborn. On the first day, an injection of Digoxin will also be administered to stop the fetal heart beat.”

Late Term abortion clinic uses Digoxin to stop heartbeat

Blogging abortionist Leah Torres, who claims that all abortions “save lives” (except the baby’s life, of course) also described the act of “euthanizing” a preborn child not as barbaric, but as a method of avoiding the dreaded complication of the infant being born alive. Torres writes:

During an abortion in the 2nd trimester, specifically after 22 weeks, it is general practice to perform feticide (injection of a lethal medicine into the amniotic cavity or into the fetal heart) to essentially euthanize the fetus prior to the dilation and evacuation (D&E) procedure. It is therefore not alive once the abortion procedure is started.

Torres goes on to blame the 2003 Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act for this requirement of an “intra-amniotic injection” which she’s says “put[s] the woman at risk of injury and infection… prior to the D&E.”

report from the Society of Family Planning (SFP), whose mission is to support research on contraception and abortion, suggests that euthanizing the baby protects the abortionist from being charged with violating the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban Act:

The role of inducing demise before dilation and evacuation (D&E) remains unclear, except for legal considerations in the United States when an intact delivery is intended.

It is clear from the SFP report that the use of a feticide like Digoxin (which, while it is meant to stop the fetal heart, isn’t always successful) to “euthanize” a preborn baby before abortion isn’t altruistic. No, there is no concern that the infant will be in agony while it is aborted; there is simply an admission that the abortionist could face criminal charges if the child is accidentally aborted alive:

By electing to use an agent with established feticidal properties at a dose and by a route that have been established to ensure cardiac asystole in most cases, there is no intention of performing the banned abortion procedure… [it will] demonstrate the abortion provider’s intention to avoid the banned procedure and allows documentation of the absence of cardiac activity, thus protecting the provider.

The video below explains what happens in a late-term abortion using digoxin:

In the NM undercover video, the caller is given more details of what happens after the feticide is administered to “euthanize” her child.

“Labor is going to be induced here in the clinic, usually one to two days later,” the staffer advises. “The doctor will use a substance; it is called laminaria. She will place that in the cervix overnight… and it will very gradually begin to open up your cervix overnight.” Then the staffer tells the caller she would need to stay “close by” in a hotel near the abortion facility.

This little bit of instruction is important because the abortion staffer knows that once Digoxin is injected into the womb, the woman could go into what the industry calls “extramural delivery,” which means she could go into labor and delivery before her scheduled abortion. The chances of this occurring increase with each additional laminaria prior to the scheduled abortion, according to a study of late-term abortions at UCLA, published by the Journal Contraception.

“If the cervix dilates and your body may go into labor — then — you call us. That’s what you do,” the SWO abortion staffer tells the caller. The caller is then told that the abortionist will induce labor in the facility, where the delivery process will begin and “could take several hours.”

When a Live Action undercover investigator visited this same facility in 2013, she was advised that if she went into labor before her scheduled abortion, she would have to deliver the baby into the toilet of her hotel room — and, of course, there was the possibility of an accidental live birth. In the video below, Southwestern Women’s Options abortionists Shelly Sella and Carmen Landau tell the investigator that they cannot deliver a “live baby.” An unnamed counselor at the facility advises Live Action’s 27-weeks-pregnant investigator:

If we can’t catch it [delivery of the dead baby – the final stage of the abortion procedure] early enough, which has happened… then you’ll want to unlock the door to the hotel room, get your cell phone, and just sit on the toilet.  You don’t have to look at anything … you can stay on the phone with us until the doctor and nurse get there[.]

Abortionist Carmen Landau echoes this advice, telling the Live Action investigator to “sit on the toilet” and “unlock the hotel room.”  “Just sit there,” Landau says, “and you would not move until we come and get you.”

 

Southwestern Women’s Options was also a subject of another Live Action video, titled “What is Human?,” in which Landau likened the lethal injection that kills the preborn baby to “a flu shot, really.”

It is a sad reality that babies in all gestational stages are targeted for death in the womb. Human beings at all stages of life are sacred and should not have their lives extinguished at the whim of those who callously profit from their demise.

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.

Pro-lifers in Michigan have uncovered a long rap sheet of offenses including charges of assault and domestic violence from an abortion doctor in Grand Rapids whose NAF abortion clinic describes him as having “professionalism, integrity, and superior skills.”

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

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

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

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

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

Read the document here.

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

Heritage clinic for women Gordon abortion

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

Perhaps they will reconsider after this information becomes public.

Abortion training: avoid saying “baby” use “fetus” or “pregnancy” instead

Posted in Abortion Counseling, Abortion Training, Planned Parenthood Counseling with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 7, 2016 by saynsumthn

A training manual on abortion tells doctors and clinicians to avoid using the word “baby” and suggests substituting “fetus” or “pregnancy instead.

Early Abortion Workbook

The Early Abortion Training Workbook published by Advancing New Standards in Reproductive Health (ANSIRH) which is staffed by former Planned Parenthood and National Abortion Federation (NAF) employees, describes their training this way:

    “ANSIRH’s Early Abortion Training Workbook was developed for use in a clinical setting where an experienced trainer or provider is available to lead a discussion of its didactic context and exercises. It is intended to help clinicians learn to identify key elements of informed consent counseling, recognize major psychosocial issues of importance for women who seek abortions, understand the basic steps involved with first-trimester vacuum aspiration abortions and early medical abortion service provision, and identify common complications related to first-trimester abortion care.”

Pro-lifers often point out that abortion is a money-making industry selling abortions to vulnerable women in their most difficult time of need. It is true that abortion providers will claim that they only do abortions on women who want them, but it is also true that they have developed clever marketing skills that not only bring the girls in for the abortions, but facilitate the “closure of the sale” as well. This is illustrated well in the ANSIRH training manual below which instructs abortion providers how to respond to an ambivalent patient:

Approrpiate to feder

“In deciding how to proceed,” the training manual states, “it is appropriate to trust your own instincts. Some patients, who may be having difficulty accepting responsibility for their decision, recant in an effort to make the provider or agency “responsible.” In such a case, the provider must ask for a clear statement of the patient’s intent before proceeding. For example:

“I’m not sure if you are ready to go on with the procedure tofay.If you aren’t sure, we can postpone until you are more sure.Do you need some more time?”

Then, the all-knowing abortion provider is very much aware that the woman, who is agonizing over her decision will opt to go through the abortion. In fact, the training manual tells providers, “For many women, this last moment is what they need; when faced with the possibility of NOT going forward, the other option is less appealing and they know they want to proceed,” they write.

In this training manual, ANSIRH also instructs their abortion providers to be careful what words they use … or… for that matter don’t use.

Words to avoid when a woman seeks an abortion: BABY.

The manual suggests that it would be best for abortionists to use the term: FETUS or PREGNANCY:

ABortion Training fetus baby

However, if the abortion bound patient decides to use the word “baby” the manual suggests that it is most likely because the pregnant woman may be “feeling guilt or regret.” And, if the abortion patient wants to know what happened to their “baby” the manual tells those they train to respond like this, “I examine the pregnancy tissue to make sure that you are no longer pregnant.”

ABortion Training fetus baby 2

Then, if the patient asks if the abortion will “hurt the baby” trainees are advised to say, “At this point in the pregnancy, the nervous system is still in a very early stage of development. Most brain cells are not developed and there is no pain.”

It would appear that this kind of manipulative and inaccurate training is working. The use of the term “pregnancy” in place of the rightful term “baby” when describing or counseling for an abortion can be seen across a wide spectrum of abortion businesses.

And in a brochure published by the National Abortion Federation, the term “baby” is substituted for “pregnancy” as it “attached to the uterus.”

    “A medical abortion uses two medicines to end a pregnancy. The first one (either mifepristone or methotrexate) weakens the attachment of the pregnancy to the uterus.”

A pregnancy can attach to the uterus?

The Feminist Women’s Health Center abortion clinic chain tells women their D+C abortions are used to “remove the tiny pregnancy.”

    “If you are at least 6 weeks by ultrasound, you can choose to have a surgical abortion, in which the cervix is dilated and suction aspiration is used to remove the tiny pregnancy.”

The Philadelphia Women’s Center abortion clinic refers to the “baby” in a second trimester abortion as the removal of a “pregnancy” as well:

    When the dilation of your cervix is complete you will be taken to the operating room, and a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) will administer IV sedation. The surgery will begin when the physician inserts a speculum into your vagina in order to view your cervix. If necessary, the physician will then dilate (open) your cervix more by inserting thin, metal rods, one by one, into the opening of the cervix. These rods, also called dilators, gradually increase in width. The physician will then use surgical instruments and vacuum aspiration (suction) to remove your pregnancy. The surgery usually takes approximately 10 to 20 minutes. After your surgery, you will be monitored in our recovery room until you are medically cleared to go home, usually about 45 minutes.

The Houston Women’s abortion clinic also fails to use the term “baby” when it tells women they “remove the pregnancy from the uterus”

    “Most commonly known as vacuum aspiration, is performed after we give you oral (vicodin and valium) and IV medication (valium and stadol). A very small plastic tube about 1/10 of an inch is used to remove the pregnancy from the uterus with gentle vacuum. The way Dr.Rosenfeld performs a vacuum aspiration usually takes less than one minute with very little to no pain.”

Planned Parenthood used the term “remove the pregnancy” rather than “baby” in a pamphlet which describes an early surgical abortion:

In CLinic ABortions

    “When your cervix is stretched open enough, the contents of your uterus (womb) are taken out with suction. Suction is used by putting a small plastic tube into your uterus and connecting it to a hand-held or electric suction machine. Surgical tools may be put into the uterus through the opening in the cervix. The way it is done will depend on how long you’ve been pregnant. You may feel cramping during and after the abortion as your uterus gets smaller. Your doctor may also use a curette (a thin surgical tool) to remove the pregnancy. What has been removed will be looked at to help make sure the abortion is finished.”

An example of this kind of spin was described by a Planned Parenthood employee who claims she aborted “the Pregnancy” at Planned Parenthood. In a video message, Shawanna says Planned Parenthood gave her three options:

    I told them my situation – they gave me three options: Keeping the pregnancy, have an abortion or adoption. I chose abortion. It was the best option for me at the time…it was the best decision.”

Shawanna used by PP

Shawanna, who is promoted as a patient, even though she works for Planned Parenthood, claims that after she aborted “The Pregnancy” her life became better because she got to finish going to school and became a certified nurses assistant who went on to work for the abortion giant. On the Planned Parenthood promotional video, Shawanna adds that she got pregnant again and was really happy the second time around and this time she kept “The Pregnancy.” She emphasizes that her abortion was good and states that she could not have imagined what her life would have been like if she “kept the pregnancy back then.”

AG files complaint against abortion doc charging negligence and failing to protect patient’s personal information

Michael Roth

An abortion doctor who stored dozens of jars containing “products of conception” (a term used for aborted babies) is the subject of a Michigan Attorney General Office complaint charging him negligence and failing to protect patient’s personal information. Dr. Michael Authur Roth a long time circuit-riding abortion provider in the state made headlines earlier this fall after police found 14 containers identified at the time as “human tissue” and as well as controlled substances in his car after it was involved in a traffic incident.

The administrative complaint, filed with state Board of Medicine’s department of licensing and regulatory affairs for possible disciplinary action and obtained by Live Action News from pro-life advocate Lynn Mills, details the abortion doctor’s sordid past. In the factual allegations, the document states that Roth was disciplined by the state medical board in 2004 following a complaint that he performed an abortion out of a patient’s home. Another issue came before the Board in 2012 over a complication from a procedure resulting in a fine.

Roth abortion home complaint

The Attorney General has accused Roth with being in possession of controlled substances without lawful authority. According to the AG’s complaint, when police searched Roth’s car they discovered 6 prescription bottles containing an antibiotic prescribed by another medical doctor with the initials AO for several patients as well as large amounts of the pain medicine Fentanyl and a partially used bottle of a drug used for anesthesia. In addition they found medication used for uterine bleeding.

In response to the complaint, Mills called the items found in Roth’s car, “a cocktail for abortion.” She told Live Action News that there are many unanswered questions surrounding this case, “Pro-lifers effectively got this abortionist evicted several times last year. So let’s say that he couldn’t find a place to rent that would allow him to do abortions? We know from his history that he has experience doing them in home settings. Could this have been an option he felt was viable?”

Mills said she suspects Roth was doing clandestine abortions, wondering where he was performing them, “Roth was driving around with what he needed the antibiotics, the anesthesia, the bleed control meds and pain meds. Where’s the bloody pads, the cannulas?” While authorities have not specified why Roth was in possession of the medications, Mills speculated a few possible scenarios such as his performing secret abortions on rich women or even on human trafficking victims in secret locations.

mICHAEL RoTH abortion fetus

In addition to the medications, the complaint states that police also found “Fifteen specimen jars containing the “products of conception” in the abortionist’s car. Less than a week later, upon searching Roth’s home, police found additional medications of Fentanyl and and 6 full glass vials of Methylergonovine Maleate (medication used for uterine bleeding). Police also discovered that the Fentanyl, which had expired a year earlier, belonged to another physician. In fact, several of the medications found in Roth’s possession were expired and bore the name of to another prescribing physician where Roth “provides coverage” according to the complaint.

The documents states that the license to dispense medications are “location specific” and that medications cannot be stored in places other than where the license allows. Further, state law requires that medications are to be stored in a locked cabinet or room and not in a person’s home or vehicle. The complaint accuses Roth of failing to protect patient’s personal information as well as disposing of “pathological waste” i.e. aborted babies pursuant to state statutes.

The AG accuses Roth of the following:

    Negligence
    Incompetence
    Lack of Good Moral Character
    Possessing a controlled substance without lawful authority
    Betrayal of a Professional Confidence

Asministrative COmplaint Roth Abortion Fetus Car

The complaint requires that Roth has 30 days to submit a written response to the charges against him. And, if he cannot show that he is in compliance of all lawful requirements of retention of his license the AG has requested that formal proceedings be “commenced pursuant to the Public Health Code.”
