The Pro-choice Group: Open Umbrella Collective, has started a fundraising campaign to help Femcare abortion clinic upgrade costly equipment according to the service’s website.

Open Umbrella Fundraiser for FemCare

The state Department of Health and Human Services suspended the license of a city abortion clinic, citing nearly two dozen safety violations discovered in a recent inspection.

The state’s last inspection of Femcare said the facility failed to have a resuscitator available and needed to have an agreement or contract with an anesthetist or anesthesiologist and a registered pharmacist. Inspectors also reported that they found unclean operating room beds and anesthesia masks and tubing held together with tape. Femcare was the third abortion clinic in the state since May to have its license temporarily suspended.

Open Umbrella is throwing the suspended abortion clinic a fundraiser and announced:

Citizens concerned over the sudden closure of Femcare, Asheville’s abortion clinic, have organized a big fundraising event on Sept. 5 to raise the money needed to reopen the clinic. Background here on the last Femcare fundraising event and circumstances surrounding its closure.

Former Buncombe County commissioner Patsy Keever, who is now the new vice chair of the North Carolina Democratic Party, the Rev. Howard Hanger, UNCA’s Dr. Lori Horvitz and Dr. Alice Weldon are the featured speakers.

On July 31st FEMCARE, the abortion clinic in Asheville, NC, received a temporary license suspension. The clinic has served the community providing compassionate high quality care for patients since 1985. We are calling out to you for support! In order to raise funds for the clinic and costly regulation code improvements The Open Umbrella Collective is throwing a fundraiser for FEMCARE.

Labor by Choice: A post Labor day celebration will be held September 5th at the Millroom located at 66 Asheland Ave. Asheville, NC. 28801. Doors open at 5:30 PM. This event will include a silent auction, speakers, short film screenings regarding abortion issues, music, cash bar, and a good time for a good cause.

There are many ways in which you can show your support. As of now we are looking for art and food donations for the event. Please feel encouraged to bring your checkbooks and your friends to this fundraiser. We would like to thank you in advance for your contribution and look forward to seeing you there!

FemCare’s suspension came two days after Gov. Pat McCrory signed a law that will require abortion clinics to meet the standards of an outpatient surgery center. Ironically, it was thought that Femcare would be the only North Carolina abortion clinic to meet safety standards under the new law, but it seems it that thinking was grossly in error. Femcare was last inspected 6½ years ago. The closure is not directly related to the new law.

ACCORDING TO THE DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH PRESS RELEASE:

FEMCARE DHS

Raleigh, N.C.-In response to inquiries, the Department of Health and Human Services confirmed today that it has suspended the license of a medical clinic in Asheville, N.C, which specializes in abortions. After a routine survey of FEMCARE, Inc., inspectors found egregious violations of existing rules that revealed an imminent threat to the health and safety of patients.

“Inspectors from Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR) found the facility failed to comply with 23 separate rules,” said Drexdal Pratt, Director of DHHS’ Division of Health Service Regulation (DHSR). “We take rule violations very seriously and, when necessary, take firm action to prevent harm to patients and clients in the facilities that we license regulate and inspect.”

In addition to other findings, the survey found the facility:

Failed to maintain anesthesia (nitrous oxide gas) delivery systems in good working condition, with torn masks and tubing held together with tape.This could lead to patients not receiving the intended dosage and risk patients not being fully sedated during surgical procedures, leading to pain and physical harm.
Failed to ensure emergency equipment had weekly checks to ensure the equipment was suitable for use in patient care and failed to ensure that emergency medicine wasn’t expired.
Failed to have a resuscitator available.
Failed to sweep and mop the operating room floor and failed to properly clean operating room beds.
Failed to have a director of nursing responsible and accountable for all nursing services.
Failed to have an agreement/contract with an anesthetist or anesthesiologist.
Failed to have an agreement/contract with a registered pharmacist to assure appropriate methods, procedures and controls for obtaining, dispensing, and administering drugs.
FEMCARE, Inc.’s last inspection was on January 16, 2007, a follow up inspection of a previous survey, which found the clinic in violation of personnel and quality assurance rules.
The Division of Health Service Regulation is responsible for licensing, regulating and inspecting healthcare facilities, including hospitals, ambulatory surgical facilities, dialysis facilities, nursing homes and mental health facilities. The Acute Care Licensure Section has ten full time staff who survey hundreds of facilities across the state. The recently passed budget adds 10 full time employees to provide more frequent inspections of acute care facilities.

Operation Rescue reports this is the 42nd abortion clinic to close nationally in 2013. Clinic safety regulations have contributed to many of the closings. This number far eclipses the 24 abortion clinics that closed in 2012.

In addition to FemCare North Carolina, State officials have ordered a Durham abortion clinic to close its doors after finding safety violations. The state Department of Health and Human Services suspended the Baker abortion Clinic for their failure to perform quality control testing on 108 patients. Inspectors wrote that the clinic failed to ensure a positive and negative red blood cell control material was tested at least once daily when Rh(D) testing was performed and failed to follow manufacturer’s instructions for performing Rh(D) testing. This comes following a state announcement to monitor the Preferred Women’s abortion clinic in Charlotte that reopened after briefly losing its license.

Another abortionist with filthy and dangerous clinic quits after Health Department ordered him to cease performing abortions

Pa. cites abortion clinic violations; doctor quits
Pennsylvania health officials say renewed inspections uncovered poor conditions at two Philadelphia-area abortion clinics in the months after a drug investigation revealed a “house of horrors” facility operating for years in the city.

MARK SCOLFORO Associated Press 3/10/2011
HARRISBURG, Pa. —

Pennsylvania health officials say renewed inspections uncovered poor conditions at two Philadelphia-area abortion clinics in the months after a drug investigation revealed a “house of horrors” facility operating for years in the city.

The physician who operated the two Abortion as an Alternative Inc. clinics, in Bensalem and the Germantown section of Philadelphia, received scathing reports and was ordered to suspend performing abortions.

Two days later, Dr. Soleiman M. Soli, 73, announced he would shut down the clinics instead. He then retired, according to the state Department of Health.

Soli’s operations are distinct from those of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, whose Women’s Medical Society in Philadelphia was the target of a major Philadelphia grand jury investigation. Gosnell is charged with eight counts of murder for the deaths of a woman and seven babies born alive, then fatally stabbed in the spine with scissors.

Problems at Soli’s clinics were found after Pennsylvania regulators renewed long-dormant routine inspections of free-standing abortion clinics around the state in the wake of the investigation into Gosnell and his staff.

At Soli’s clinics, the Department of Health found drugs decades past their expiration dates, inadequate or inoperable equipment, poor record-keeping and mishandling of fetal tissue.

“Dr. Soli served his patients for more than 53 years as a board-certified obstetrician and gynecologist. He retired last year,” his attorney, Stanley J. Milavec Jr., said in an e-mail response. Milavec said Soli, who retired from practice Nov. 19, was not available for further comment.

An Oct. 26 inspection report of Soli’s Bensalem facility found that drugs and equipment required to resuscitate abortion patients were missing and that it took Soli and a secretary 10 minutes to figure out how to use the clinic’s oxygen tank, the mask for which was found covered in dust.

Dozens of expired drugs and medical equipment were found, some dating back decades, including Benadryl from 1970, a saline vial from 1978, progesterone from 1982 and Depo-Provera from 1989.

Sterile trays of instruments were not wrapped properly and the ultrasound machine, microscope and blood pressure cuffs had not been inspected, certified or calibrated, they said.
Soli’s medical license, first issued in 1967, expired at the end of December and he was placed on inactive status last mont
h, according to the Department of State. The agency’s Board of Medicine had no discipline history for him.

Soli received a medical doctor’s degree from Shiraz University in Iran in 1958, according to American Board of Medical Specialties records.

The Nov. 1 inspection of his Philadelphia clinic also found nonworking or missing equipment and expired pharmaceutical drugs, some that dated back to the early 1990s.

When inspectors inquired about fetal tissue samples inside a cabinet in procedure room, Soli responded that he did not know why they were there and then placed them in a trash bag for disposal, the state agency said. It was unclear how much tissue was handled that way, but the reports said it was used for microscopic examination.

The facility’s only bathroom lacked ceiling tiles, leaving the pipes exposed, inspectors said. They found Soli’s lunch was kept in the same refrigerator as the clinic’s drugs.

“Opened, uncapped needles were also observed lying directly on the floor under the cabinet with the identified medications,” inspectors said.

That was also where drugs for sterile intravenous use were stored, because Soli and his staff said they had to be hidden from neighborhood drug dealers. The inspection reports said the office had been broken into several times.

Soli told the inspectors he did not have a written transfer agreement with a hospital for emergency care, as required, but did have privileges at two hospitals.

Inspectors said Soli’s handwritten notes, in English and Arabic, were so hard to read it took him several minutes to decipher them himself.

After the inspections, the Health Department ordered him to cease performing abortions at both clinics and to file plans of correction.

The reports were provided to The Associated Press by the office of Gov. Tom Corbett more than a month after state officials disclosed the results of inspections of 22 other Pennsylvania abortion clinics following a January Right-to-Know Law request by the AP.

Corbett spokeswoman Janet Kelley said the Abortion as an Alternative clinic inspection reports were discovered as state officials reviewed the other 22 reports.

Fluoride: Friend Or Foe? Fluoride Opponent Says Chemical Is Harmful To Our Health

Posted in Black Genocide, Fluoride, Population Control, Sterilization, Sterilizing agents in Drinking Water with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 22, 2010 by saynsumthn

By Stephany Fisher, CBS Atlanta Anchor
March 9, 2010

ATLANTA — It’s in the tap water we drink and many of the foods we eat.

For decades, we’ve been told that it helps fight cavities, but there are critics who say this chemical is doing more harm than good.

“I’ve worked with a lot of dangerous things in my career. I don’t get real worked up over chemicals or I could have never done my job — this one scares me,” said Daniel Stockin, a health advocate whose background includes toxics assessment.

What could it be? Arsenic? Lead?

No, it’s fluoride — the kind you brush your teeth with, and the kind that’s been added to Atlanta’s city water supply since 1969. Every public water district in Georgia is required by law to do so.

“When we started to fluoridate 50-plus years ago, water was the only source for the fluoride, then they really quickly said hey, let’s put it in toothpaste, and then it started to show up in the foods made with fluoridated water,” Stockin said.

Stockin became concerned about fluoride in 2004 and helped start The Lillie Center — a public health training firm that is now working to end fluoridation.

For the last five years, Stockin and his partners have spent nearly all of their time and money spreading the word about fluoride and its potential negative health effects, one of which is dental fluorosis.

Dental fluorosis is caused by ingesting too much fluoride from various sources, as the teeth are being formed.

In mild cases, it appears as white or brown stains on the teeth. In more severe forms, it can include indentions or pitting of the teeth. The damage is irreversible.

“A lot of folks think it’s just ‘Oh, I have bad hygiene or I’ve got cavities,’ and they have no idea that these stains and these pits are actually caused by the fluorides they’ve ingested,” Stockin said.

Atlanta chiropractor Hamilton Wetzel is one of the many Americans diagnosed with a mild case of dental fluorosis.

“There are some distinct white marks across there and a couple brown spots as well,” Wetzel described.

Now he wants to make sure his baby daughter, Willow and the new baby due in April, don’t suffer the same consequences.

“Hopefully they don’t have the staining on their teeth, hopefully they don’t have the health effects that I had,” Wetzel said.

Stockin invited Wetzel to participate in the Lillie Center’s latest project — a campaign to educate the community on the potential side effects of of ingesting fluoride.

“If you listen on TV today to these ads for drugs and they have 30 seconds or so of side effects that they’re required by law to talk about, but for some reason, people haven’t been told the side effects of fluorides,” Stockin said.

Stockin claims the effects of fluoride reach far beyond our teeth. He says our bodies retain about half of the fluoride we ingest and that it accumulates over time.

“If fluorides do this to teeth, which are the hardest surfaces in your body, what do we think they’re doing to our soft tissues,” posed Stockin.

The American Dental Association and the Centers for Disease Control have endorsed water fluoridation since 1950 and while they admit that fluoride can be toxic in excessive quantities, the ADA maintains that at optimal levels, water fluoridation is a safe and effective way to prevent dental decay.

But, when we tried to ask the tough questions, the CDC and State Dental Director Elizabeth Lense, denied our requests for interviews.

We were instead referred to the CDC’s Web site and the American Dental Association’s “Fluoridation Facts” — an article that was last reviewed in 2005.

Stockin says much of that information is outdated, and some of it is just plain wrong.

“It’s bad science, it’s outdated science,” Stockin said.

In fact, Stockin and other experts say fluoride doesn’t need to be ingested at all, that it works best when applied directly to the teeth, via toothpaste or mouth rinse.

“If I went to a doctor and said I have issues with sunburn and he said, ‘Here’s some sunblock for you, drink this to prevent sunburn,’ what would I say? I’d say, ‘that makes no sense,'” Stockin said.

Not a new argument, but more and more communities are beginning to jump on the anti-fluoridation bandwagon, such as Corning, N.Y., Bellingham, Wash. and Juneau, Alaska. Voters in each of those cities rejected the addition of fluoride to their water supplies.

Meanwhile, Atlantans continue to drink fluoridated water, as mandated by the state and many have tough questions for the people who made that choice for them.

“Why are they doing it after there’s been a lot more research coming out that shows that it’s not necessary,” Wetzel said.

Stockin added, “If people insist on fluorides, let them buy fluoridated toothpaste and spit it out rather than all of us ingesting this thing and then having to deal with the health consequences of that?”

Stockin says there’s a lot of new information that hasn’t been widely publicized, including the fact that the CDC is now encouraging parents to use low-fluoride or non-fluoridated water to mix with baby formula.

The National Research Council says infants and babies ingest three to four times the amount of fluorides as adults on a body weight basis, which can lead to an increased risk of dental fluorosis.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, babies don’t need fluoride during the first six months because they don’t have teeth.

Kidney Foundation Drops Fluoridation Support
Mon Jun 9, 2008 9:56am EDT

Fluoride may damage bones of kidney patients

NEW YORK, June 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The National Kidney Foundation withdrew its support of water fluoridation citing the 2006 National Research Council (NRC) report indicating that kidney patients are more susceptible to fluoride’s bone and teeth-damaging effects.

The kidney-impaired retain more fluoride and risk skeletal fluorosis (an arthritic-type bone disease), fractures and severe enamel fluorosis, which may increase the risk of dental decay, reports the NRC.

Fluoride is added to US water supplies ostensibly to reduce tooth decay. Fluoride is also in foods, beverages, drugs and dental products.

The National Kidney Foundation’s (NKF) former fluoridation position statement also carried surprising cautions. The NKF advised monitoring children’s fluoride intake along with patients with chronic kidney impairment, those with excessive fluoride intake, and those with prolonged disease. But NKF now admits, “exposure from food and beverages is difficult to monitor, since FDA food labels do not quantify fluoride content.”

The NKF’s April 15, 2008 statement goes further: “Individuals with CKD [Chronic Kidney Disease] should be notified of the potential risk of fluoride exposure.”

“More than 20 million Americans have CKD, and most don’t even know it. More than 20 million others are at increased risk for developing CKD,” NKF reports.

“There is consistent evidence that impairment of kidney function results in changes to the way in which fluoride is metabolized and eliminated from the
body, resulting in an increased burden of fluoride,” concludes Kidney Health Australia in a paper NKF recommends reading.

NKF’s fluoridation support was dropped when a lawyer, an academic dentist and public health professional, Daniel Stockin, alerted it to NRC’s findings.

“An easy way to reduce the uncontrolled flow of fluoride into our bodies is to stop water fluoridation,” says attorney Paul Beeber, President, New York State
Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation. “But it takes political will to reject fluoridation.”

The American and Louisiana Dental Associations erroneously claim the National Kidney Foundation supports fluoridation. However, even the ADA reports that “decreased fluoride removal may occur among persons with severely impaired kidney function who may not be on kidney dialysis.”

Chronic kidney disease is a growing health problem in the United States occurring more often in African-American populations, says the Centers for Disease Control.

Fluoride Ingestion Is Related to Fluid Consumption Patterns.
Sohn W, Noh H, Burt BA.

Department of Cariology, Restorative Sciences & Endodontics, School of Dentistry, University of Michigan, MI, USA.

Objectives: There have been few reports regarding variations of fluoride intake by fluid consumption patterns. The purpose of this study was to estimate fluoride intake among children in the United States based on their fluid consumption patterns. Methods: Fluid intakes of children aged 1-10 years from plain water, beverages, and water from foods were assessed in a 24-hour recall diet survey as a part of the third National Health and Nutritional Examination Survey (NHANES III, 1988-1994). The amount of fluoride ingested from fluids in NHANES III was estimated from several assumptions about the concentration of fluoride in drinking water and beverages. Logistic regression analysis was conducted using SAS((R)) and SUDAAN((R)). Results: Children at the 75th percentile or higher of F intake from fluids (not including water used in cooking) ingested 0.05 mg F/kg/day or more, and children at the 90th percentile or higher ingested 0.07 mg F/kg/day or more. This finding held across all age groups. There was substantial variation in the estimated amount of fluoride ingestion depending on the children’s fluid consumption patterns as well as age, gender, and race/ethnicity. African-American children ingested significantly more fluoride than White children in bivariate analysis. This association remained significant after accounting for fluid consumption pattern and other confounding factors in the model. Conclusion: Our results raise concerns that some children are ingesting significantly more fluoride than others depending on sociodemographic factors and fluid consumption patterns. Additional research is warranted to investigate the variation in the amounts of fluoride ingestion by these factors and its impact on fluorosis prevalence in different population groups.
