16 infants in Florida born alive after surviving abortion attempts

abortion survivors

Over the past few years, a total of sixteen babies have been born alive after attempted abortions in the state of Florida, according to online reports. The information, collected by the state from abortion providers, is compiled in the report, “ITOP Report of Infants Born Alive, By County Where Terminations Occurred, Florida,” on file at the Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA). According to a spokesperson from the AHCA, ITOP stands for “Induced Termination of Pregnancy.”

Thus far in 2018, one baby has been born alive in Florida during an abortion attempt. In 2017, there were 11 abortion survivors. There were none recorded born alive in 2016 or 2013, but there were four abortion survivors in 2015.

A previous Live Action News report noted that in 2015 alone, there were several reports of abortion survivors: one in Michigan, five in Minnesota, and, as already mentioned, four in Florida — three in Alachua County and one in Jackson County. That same year, 5,132 elective abortions were reportedly committed on women between the 13th and 24th week of pregnancy; that number has since been updated to 5,195 with a total of 5,695 for all reasons, including various “health” reasons.

Now, only a few years later, that number has increased substantially, especially in Alachua County.

Although the documents do not indicate whether the reports of abortion survivors originated from a hospital or an abortion facility, records currently on file with the state reveal that there are only two licensed abortion facilities in Alachua County where ten babies have been reported to have survived abortion attempts since 2015. One is an abortion facility called Bread and Roses, and the other is the All Women’s Health Center, a chain which operates multiple abortion facilities in the state — including the only licensed abortion facility in Seminole County, where one baby was reported to have survived an abortion in 2017.

State records also show that there are six licensed abortion facilities in Hillsborough County, where three babies survived abortion attempts in 2017. Of those six facilities, two are Planned Parenthood centers. In Jackson County, where one baby survived an abortion in 2015, there are currently no licensed abortion facilities.

In Orange County, where another baby survived an abortion attempt in 2017, there are currently three licensed abortion facilities (down from five in 2016 and six in 2017) including two Planned Parenthood facilities and a late-term facility operated by the infamous James Scott Pendergraft.

Florida’s official definitions for how abortion providers are to file their reports define a baby born alive as one that is breathing, has a beating heart, or has voluntary muscle movements after expulsion:

Was/were the infant(s) born alive during or immediately after attempted abortion? – Select the appropriate response. “Born alive” is defined in 390.011(4), F.S. as: “Born alive” means the complete expulsion or extraction from the mother of a human infant, at any stage of development, who, after such expulsion or extraction, breathes or has a beating heart, or definite and voluntary movement of muscles, regardless of whether the umbilical cord has been cut and regardless of whether the expulsion or extraction occurs as a result of natural or induced labor, caesarean section, induced abortion, or other method.

What happened to the babies who survived the attempted abortions is unclear, as no additional information was available from the reports.

Florida law requires that “[a]n infant born alive during or immediately after an attempted abortion must be immediately transported and admitted to a hospital pursuant to s. 390.012(3)(c) or rules adopted thereunder.” The law also requires that any employee of a hospital, physician’s office, or an abortion clinic who is aware of a violation of the born-alive law must report it.

In 2013, as Live Action News has previously reported, during hearings in Florida about protecting abortion survivors, lobbyist Alisa LaPolt Snow (representing the Florida Alliance of Planned Parenthood Affiliates), admitted to the Florida legislature that Planned Parenthood takes issue with allowing infants born alive after failed abortions to be transported to a hospital.

In the video, the Planned Parenthood spokesperson states that the organization believes the decision about whether to assist a baby who survives and abortion should be left up to the woman and her abortion provider. The shocking dialogue shows the depraved mentality behind abortion – that even if the baby escapes the horrific procedure alive and is struggling to survive on the table, abortion providers still want the power to terminate that child’s life.

Since 2015, the state of Florida has reported nearly 221,000 abortions (YTD) including over 13,000 “elective” second trimester (13 to 24 weeks) abortions out of a total of 16,000 second trimester abortions for all reasons, including “health of the mother or baby.”

To date, the state has only reported one third trimester abortion since 2015.

Reports detailing health inspections at Florida abortion facilities for 2016 reveal that deficient practices were identified in 23 of the 68 inspections conducted by health officials that year, and 15 out of 55 in 2017. Inspectors found expired medications, missing documents, discrepancies in medical records, inadequate equipment, and one including missing documentation on gestational age, among other infractions. In addition, in 2016, state fines were issued in 20 instances where abortion facilities filed late ITOP reports. The following year, in 2017, fines were assessed in 10 instances for facilities which filed late reports.

Infants born alive inside abortion facilities have haunted the abortion industry for many years, as Live Action News has documented several times. In fact, one national news outlet even dubbed the term the “dreaded complication.” In 2013, Live Action’s undercover cameras exposed the chilling admissions of abortionists inside America’s late-term abortion industry during third trimester abortions and partial-birth abortions. Although these abortionists confess to the humanity of often viable, fully developed children, they inflict inhuman and cruel abortion procedures against them.

In the video above, you can hear one abortion staffer telling Live Action’s undercover patient that “one medical definition of a baby, I think, is, technically, until it’s born. Until then, when it’s in gestation it’s considered a fetus.”

This kind of delusional dehumanization of preborn children is the very reason why abortion is so prevalent today.

Pro-choice man attacks pro-life women outside abortion clinic

Posted in Florida Abortion Clinics, pro-choice violence with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

An angry pro-choice man outside a Central Florida abortion clinic assaulted a woman and threatened another pro-life woman side-walk counseling out front.

All womens health center abortion clinic

On Tuesday, two pro-life women outside the All Women’s Health Center abortion clinic in Orlando were threatened by a pro-choice man who claimed to be a a Christian.

He ended up assaulting one of the sidewalk counselors and knocking her camera out of her hands.

He did not stop until the women talked of 911 coming.

In several videos uploaded on Facebook you can hear the pro-life women’s voice shaking as they ask the abortion clinic security guard to call 911.

Angry prochoice man

The man keeps saying F-you.

According to one of the witnesses:

When the man and his wife first arrived at the abortion clinic, she went into the clinic immediately and the man quickly approached the pro-life women who were sidewalk counseling outside.

He expressed to the women that he was not happy about the abortion but – felt it was necessary because he already had 6 kids and could not afford more.

He told the women that he spent the morning crying because he didn’t want to abort the child, but because his wife was afraid of complications during childbirth as she had some previously, he was leaving the decision of abortion to her.

After coming out of the abortion clinic a while later, one of the pro-life women called out to him, “You call yourself a Christian. If you are, then you can trust that the Lord will provide for you. He will provide for your seventh child. You can trust Him.

You say oe more thing to me

That’s when he turned to Anne (last name withheld for her protection) who was later struck by the man and said, “Are you talking to ME?!!

According to Anne, he charged at her saying things like, “You don’t know who you’re f…ing talking to! You are f…ing talking to me about trust!

And then he started talking about how white people are killing black people and how he is subject to losing his life.”

“I was trying to tell him that, even though the situation looked so hopeless, God has promised to help those who trust in him.

Another sidewalk counselor, Michele, had offered help the angry man and he threatened her as well, telling her that he was going to destroy her camera if she filmed him, and knocking her sunglasses off her face.

I’ll break that f-ing phone,” he said, “You need my permission to do that sh**.”

I was scared he was going to hurt her. Thankfully, both she and I were able to record his aggression,” Anne stated.

Note- the abortion clinic has a security guard who seemed to wait a while before rendering aid.

Pro-lifers report that the police were called and charges of assault are pending.

Michele told Saynsumthn that she and Anne are are doing well, albeit very shaken from the event.

Michele believes it was an abortion victim sign they held that initially set the man off.

Signs showing the truth of abortion often convict those seeking to kill their children.

The women are asking for prayers of safety while they continue to speak out for innocent unborn children.

OWC Orlando Womans Center1714398_873838438_o

John Barros, who counsels outside a later term abortion clinic in Orlando has spoken to a woman who used to run an abortion clinic in the state.

John writes, “A Lady stopped by OWC today to see what we were doing. She confessed that she ran the All Women”s Health Center Abortion Clinic, for 10 1/2 years… She was absolutely Amazed what was going on here. She saw the Reformation Bible College kids as well as a couple others singing hymns and conversations going on with people coming for abortions. Terri also saw ladies that had come to Christ here and the Joy that was in their hearts… She Encouraged us all to never quit… I got to spend quite a bit of time speaking with her. She told how Randal Whitney worked for her and he hasn’t changed a bit…. She has repented of her sin and is in a Church… She is dealing with the consequences of her sin and there is much pain. I reminded her that “He who knew no Sin , became Sin that we might have the Righteousness of God” And that “The Blood of Jesus Christ Cleanses us from ALL Sin” She said that she can’t do enough…. I told her none of us can but He did… A Dear Friend is going to be working with Terri… Please Pray for her She did a little video here to Encourage other Front Line people to not give up… There was so much more but to much to put on here… I know there is a temptation to some to want to find her and get all the dirt but please don’t… I think it is more important to see her get the help she needs than make you famous… Stay The Course Brothers And Sisters.”

Former Worker now Christian

The former worker said she praises God every day for getting her out of there and now attends a local church. She says that she now prays that the clinic workers will be encouraged to leave. She also said that she prays for the patients seeking abortions.

“Two weeks ago..I had a dream about that clinic…when I had nightmares was way at the beginning when we were doing procedures up to 22 or 23 weeks…and my girls that worked for me had nightmares,” she told John.

According to Michele Herzog, a spokesperson for the pro-life group, “Today was the day of rocks at the AWHC abortion mill! From an abortion bound dad telling sidewalk counselor Barbara that he was going to throw a rock at her (until his girlfriend stopped him), to an irate abortion bound young woman threatening us and her friend picking up a rock and violently getting ready to throw it at us until we started calling for Melvin the security guard! God was watching out over us, but wow, was there a spiritual battle going on down at this killing center today!!!”

The group posted this on YouTube, “This morning [ May 20, 2014] started out with a couple that stormed into the mill, with the abortion bound dad coming out a bit later heading straight for the sidewalk counselor, he came out to tell her that he had picked up a rock on the way in and was going to throw it at her and the others, but his girlfriend made him stop….he then asked for one of the brochures and went back in. Later, a friend of an abortion bound woman who had just threatened us, picked up a rock, was yelling at us and was getting ready to throw the rock hard when we called for the security guard, she then threw it at us, but not as hard. Today was the day of the rocks!”

The group says the woman picked up the rock, walked over to them, and then stepped back and threw the rock. She then returned inside.

Botched Procedure Causes Hemorrhage at FL Abortion Clinic

Previously on our blog we posted this: Pro-lifers outside the All Women’s Health Center in Altamonte Springs report that on November 14,2012 an ambulance arrived to the Florida abortion clinic:

Pro-life counselor Michele Herzog stated, “While we were at AWHC this morning, November 14, an ambulance and a fire truck drove down the street and ended up at the AWHC abortuary. As you can see a young lady was transported to the hospital.

Herzog continues, “The medical assistant is holding up a sheet so we wouldn’t see the girl on the stretcher, with Melvin guarding the scene.
The young lady is being taken out the back door. We pray for this young lady that was taken to the hospital and we also pray for this medical assistant looking at us. She knows the truth about what abortion really is and she knows that it is not safe either
.”

But Now, Operation Rescue has released the 911 Audio of the call:

Operation Rescue recently obtained the 911 recording and Computer Aided Dispatch Transcript that confirmed the nature of the woman’s injuries and produced a video that includes the emergency call recording.

Michele Herzog of Pro-Life Action Ministries, who witnessed the incident, told Operation Rescue that the clinic’s security guard told her that the injured woman was “an employee that was pregnant and she started bleeding.That story was completely refuted by the 911 communications that stated specifically that the woman was a patient who was not pregnant and hemorrhaged during an attempt to insert an IUD.

An IUD, (Intrauterine Device), is a method of birth control that consists of a t-shaped object that is inserted into the uterus that prevents implantation of a growing human blastocyst, or baby at the earliest stage of development. IUDs are considered to cause very early abortions and are not a true contraceptive, because it causes the death of a growing human being. True contraceptives prevent the egg from being fertilized.

In order to cause the heavy bleeding, it is likely that the IUD perforated the uterus. This is a very dangerous complication that would likely require emergency surgery to correct, according to our research,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue and Pro-Life Nation.

This incident just further illustrates the dangers that lurk at our nation’s abortion clinics. There is no such thing as a ‘safe’ abortion clinic. In our years of experience, we have never found one that follows the law.”

Case in point:

In 2009, Agency for Health Care Administration found several deficiencies at the abortion clinic ( Report here)

Other All Women’s Locations have also had deficiencies sited during abortion clinic inspections:

Abortionist Gary A Dresden is listed as the doctor and Officer for the clinic ( Here )

According to the Florida Medical Board, Dr. Gary Dresden has a complaint on file ( here ) Case #61535 Suspension-Other Penalty Imposed

Gary Dresden is originally from Long Beach, New York. He attended McGill University in Montreal, Canada and Medical School in Bologna, Italy. He moved to St. Petersburg Florida for his residency and practiced OBGYN in St. Petersburg, Fl with Dresden, Ticktin, Klein and Sibley MD PA. He currently owns and operates several abortion clinics in Florida and New York.

Dresden once stated, “Like most everybody, I want to be loved, listened to and heard. But I also want to be remembered, without my ideas and deeds being lost in the swirling winds of time. As an Obstetrician and Gynecologist, I have been proud of my contribution, the difficult deliveries, the difficult surgeries, and concomitantly, the lives that I’ve touched and saved. But the clarity of these actions fade with the years and the feelings go unremembered, lost forever in the bottomless wastebasket of forgotten memories.”
