Did organ harvesting thwart justice in abortion patient death case ?

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

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.

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.

Planned Parenthood letter scheme encourages abortion opponents

Posted in Cecile Richards, Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 15, 2015 by saynsumthn

A new trend of letters signed by Planned Parenthood’s president Cecile Richards to opponents of the abortion business has been emerging. Richards apparently has not been busy enough defending her multi-million dollar tax funded organizations’ participation in the selling and harvesting of aborted baby parts, she is now busy signing letters to her opponents.

The letters are in response to a donation made to the abortion biz in the name of someone who ardently opposes Planned Parenthood.

But rather than discouraging the recipients, the letters appear to be more of a badge of honor to those they were delivered to. In fact, Saynsumthn obtained the permission of the recipients, to published them below.

Each letter states the following:

    Dear [ name]

    Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) is pleased to let you know that a generous and thoughtful contribution has been made in your honor by: [name on contributor]

    We send our warmest regards.

    Sincerely,

    Cecile Richards,
    president, PPFA.

Cheryl Sullenger, Operation Rescue’s Senior Vice President, was the recipient of one of the thank you letters.

It just re-emphasized to me how desperate Cecile Richards and Planned Parenthood are and how effective our work has been,” Sullenger told Live Action News.

Operation Rescue has in the forefront of the effort to expose Planned Parenthood. Their president, Troy Newman sits on the board of the Center for Medical Progress credited for the multi-year investigation uncovering the abortion giant’s baby harvesting operation.

Another recipient was Rusty Thomas, National Director of Operation Save America (OSA).

He told Saynsumthn that he suspects he received the letter because OSA has concentrated a lot on Planned Parenthood since the Center for Medical Progress videos uncovered their baby harvesting atrocities.

Planned Parenthood Letter

A letter was also sent to an activist from Abolish Human Abortion, a group which opposes abortion but does not refer to themselves a pro-life.

Todd Bullis told this blogger that he assumes the person who made a Planned Parenthood contribution in his name must of thought it would bother him, which it did not.

There seems to be no legitimate reason to contribute to Planned Parenthood in the name of someone who opposes abortion, unless of course, the donor wants help Cecile Richards continue to earn her hefty six digit salary.

The letters follow another trend of odd behavior where abortion advocates mailed glitter bombs to pro-life groups in a failed attempt to discourage them.

The concept mirrors ongoing pro-abortion fundraising efforts such as “pledge a picketer,” and “adopt and anti,” to try and discourage 40 Days for Life and other groups from going to abortion clinics to offer help to women.

But, as much as Planned Parenthood’s latest scheme seems geared toward dissuading activists from opposing abortion, they are having the opposite effect. Opponents of Planned Parenthood say that they are more determined than ever to topple the industry which slaughters children and sells their parts for research. And, some even find the ridiculous letters signed by Cecile Richards encouraging.

If we were ineffective, she wouldn’t bother to try play ridiculous mind games with us. It’s encouraging!” Sullenger stated.

Planned Parenthood accounts for 2/3 of all medical emergencies documented by pro-lifers at abortion clinics

Operation Rescue says that Planned Parenthood accounts for two-thirds of all medical emergencies documented by pro-lifers outside abortion clinics.

The group made the statement in response to a 3rd emergency call to a PP clinic in Washington State.

Planned Parenthood spokane 911 Oct 2015

The 911 call was placed by Planned Parenthood in Spokane on September 16, 2015 for a patient suffering from a “uterine perforation.” The audio was obtained by the pro-life group Operation Rescue, which documents emergencies to abortion clinics nationwide.

Although the Planned Parenthood caller does not state the perforation was due to a botched abortion, Cheryl Sullenger Operation Rescue’s, senior Vice President said that uterine perforations generally occur when the sharp abortion suction cannula, which is used to dismember the baby, is thrust too deep into the uterus, causing a hole torn in the woman’s womb.

The Spokane center is operated by Planned Parenthood of Greater Washington and North Idaho (PPGWNI)whose medical director is Denise Bayuszik, MD., according to her LinkedIn page. A 2014 990 from PPGWNI shows that a Dr. Charlie Browne also works for the affiliate although it does not state which centers he operates in.

Planned Parenthood has been the center of scrutiny following revelations from the Center for Medical Progress that the tax funded organization is illegally selling the organs of babies they harvest during their abortions. As a result of the horrific revelations, Planned Parenthood’s president, Cecile Richards, who previously called their services, “high-quality reproductive health care,” was summoned to testify before Congress during hearings to decide whether they should remain federally funded to the tune of $528 million dollars annually.

Previous 911 calls from the Washington State Planned Parenthood and documented by pro-lifers, includes one in January where a pro-life side walk counselor testified that employees laughed as the patient was loaded into the ambulance. And, a 911 recording in March indicated Planned Parenthood was unable to get the bleeding stopped in a patient, prompting the abortion business to call an ambulance to rush her to the hospital.

Sullenger said that Planned Parenthood emergencies account for two-thirds of the medical emergencies Operation Rescue has documented at abortion clinics, including ten at the Houston Planned Parenthood mega-center featured in one of the most horrific baby parts harvesting videos released by the Center for Medical Progress.

So far this year we’ve found that almost two-thirds of the medical emergencies that we have documented at abortion clinics across the country take place at Planned Parenthood facilities,” Sullenger told OneNewsNow.

According to the Operation Rescue, the Houston emergency was documented by Houston Coalition for Life, and is the tenth ambulance to be seen at the megacenter since the beginning of the year.

From their report:

    The abortion-related medical emergency took place on August 4, 2015. In an audio recording of the 911 call obtained by Operation Rescue through a Freedom of Information Act request, the Planned Parenthood caller identified herself as “Tram.”

    This is Tram Nguyen, who is the Director of the Ambulatory Surgery Center, Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, in Houston, Texas. Nguyen is featured in the Center for Medical Progress video released on August 4, 2015 – ironically the same day as the botched abortion – titled “Intact Fetuses ‘Just a Matter of Line Items’ for Planned Parenthood TX Mega-Center.”

    During the emergency call placed by Nguyen, she explained to the 911 dispatcher the condition of the patient.

    We have a patient who just had a medical procedure and she’s experiencing bleeding and needs to be transported to Ben Taub per our physician orders,” she said. “She has I.V. access so we need an ACLS-equipped ambulance, please.”

More on that here.

To further expose the evil that is Planned Parenthood, on Saturday, October 10th, pro-lifers gathered outside Planned Parenthood clinics nationwide to call for the defunding and closing of the abortion business. The #ProtestPP involved demonstrations outside facilities in every state and as well as various other abortion clinics in three different countries.

Pro-life leader calls Speaker Boehner’s response to abortion protest “absolute disgrace”

Posted in John Boehner, Late term abortion, Pro-Life with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

Today, several pro-life leaders from around the nation went to the officers of Speaker John Boehner with a message to GOP leaders: Pass the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.

Even though the speaker knew the Free The Ban protest was scheduled well in advance, pro-lifers were disappointed when his staff was not available to speak with those who gathered at his office today.

The event follows a similar one in March where eight pro-life leaders were arrested during a sit-in outside Speaker John Boehner’s Office.

This time their numbers were much greater.

According to Operation Rescue, leaders present at the Speaker’s office today included Eric Scheidler of the Pro-Life Action League, Brian Gibson of Pro-Life Action Ministries, Walter and Lori Hoye of Issue 4 Life Foundation, Jeff While, Cheryl Conrad, and Jason Conrad of Survivors, Sarah Howell of CEC for Life, Bud Shaver and Pastor Manny Larzidabal, of Protest ABQ, and others.

House leaders originally planned to pass the late term abortion ban back in January until the vote was sabotaged by Rep. Renee Ellmers, who wanted to remove a rape reporting requirement in the legislation making it easier to get abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy.

Pro-life leaders say that at 20 weeks the unborn child can feel pain, and they were growing impatient that Republicans had not passed the bill.

Their gathering May 7th was intended to further pressure House leadership to get the legislation through and to give the Speaker fetal models of unborn children whose lives hang in the balance each day the bill’s passage is delayed.

As the group of pro-lifers reached the Speaker’s office, they knocked on Speaker John Boehner’s Office door and no one answered.

Rev. Pat Mahoney, who helped organize the protest, along with African American pastor Rev. Walter Hoye and others, said the group was using the Biblical analogy of the woman who approached the unjust judge and would not relent.

I will say this,” Rev. Mahoney said after repeated attempts to knock at Speaker Boehner’s door, “it would be an absolute disgrace, is Speaker Boehner’s staff did not answer the door to the people who helped get him the largest Republican majority in this generation. It would be an absolute disgrace.”

Cheryl Sullenger, senior policy advisor for Operation Rescue, said that they believed that the Speaker was there but that his staff would not come to the door.

They knew we were coming,” Sullenger said.

Rev. Walter Hoye and and his wife Lori held the exact replica model of a 20 week pre-born child, outside of the Longworth building where Speaker Boehner’s office is.

My son was born at less than six months gestation.” Rev. Hoye said in advance of the protest.

I held him in my right hand when he weighed a mere 1.9 pounds. There is no way I will support legislation that includes an exception for rape and fails to end abortion in the United States after 20 weeks.”

“I want Speaker Boehner to know that not only do Black Lives Matter but all lives matter,” Rev. Hoye said.

Outside, the pro-life group Survivors of the Abortion holocaust report that Rev. James Conrad, a sibling survivor, and his mother, also a sibling survivor from an illegal abortion, spoke at a press conference urging Speaker Boehner and the GOP House to pass the 20 Week Pain Capable Protection Act.

Bud Shaver Executive Director of Protest ABQ, said that he made two attempts to deliver a petition from New Mexicans and voices from all across the nation calling for a Ban on Late-Term Abortion, but that, “House speaker Boehner refused to open his constituents office to hear the desire of people representing states all across the nation who want to see an end of Late-Term Abortion in our country.”

It’s a huge disappointment that House Speaker Boehner closed his public office in Washington D.C. to the organizations, Pastors, and leaders from all across the country. In New Mexico it is the Radical pro-abortion Democrats that refused to allow a vote to end Late-Term Abortion. Now it’s the Republican majority in D.C. who are apparently doing the same thing,” Shaver said.

A few of the pro-lifers went back to the Speaker’s office later in the afternoon but again, no one would answer the door.

“I felt like we were being told that we didn’t matter and neither did the babies that this bill would save,” said Sullenger.

It was disrespectful not to at lease send someone out so we could at least feel like we were heard. Instead, Boehner’s staff turned a blind eye and a deaf ear, not just to us, but also to plight of babies and their moms. It was disappointing, to say the least,” she concluded.

One day after the protest House majority leader Kevin McCarthy told THE WEEKLY STANDARD that the House of Representatives would vote on the bill next week.

According to House Republicans, the requirement that rapes be reported to law enforcement has been removed from the bill. Instead, the legislation requires abortion doctors to ensure that victims have received either medical treatment or licensed counseling at least 48 hours prior to the late-term procedure.

Steven Ertlet at Life News reports, that according to his sources, the rape exception language will be airtight by requiring some sort of documented medical treatment or counseling 48 hours prior to the abortion and provided by physicians or counselors that are outside of the abortion industry. In cases of rape or incest of a minor, the abuse must first be reported to either social service or law enforcement. In addition, abortionists are explicitly required to follow state mandatory reporting laws and state parental involvement laws.

LifeNews said that sources they are in contact with say that provisions of the bill include, “a born-alive infant protection requirement that requires a second doctor be present and prepared to provide care to the child if he or she is born alive and that the child must receive the same level of care as would any other premature infant. The baby must then be transported and admitted to a hospital. The woman is also empowered with a right to sue if the law is not followed, and is provided with an informed consent form that notifies her of the age of her baby and the requirements under the law.”

All late term abortions done under the exceptions, must be reported to the Center for Disease Control which will compile the data on a annual basis for public review, he said.
