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

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

Planned Parenthood spokane 911 Oct 2015

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

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

Texas Ab doc

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

Texas Ab doc 2

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

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

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

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

NARAL Pin

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

NY Constance Cook

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

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

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

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

ASSY George Michaels cast vote to legalize abortion

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

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

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

    What if it doesn’t?” she asked.

    Maybe next year,” he said.

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

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

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

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

Bernard Nathanson

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

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

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

abortion-rally-1970s

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

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

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

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

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

Woman creates baby burial gowns from donated wedding dresses

Posted in Babies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Michigan woman is turning wedding dresses into infant burial gowns to donate to grieving mothers when their newborn baby passes away. The death of an infant child usually so unexpected that parents rarely have clothes to bury them in, and this is where Angels Above Baby Gowns steps in.

Dawn Lafferty President of Angels Above Baby Gowns

Founder Dawn Lafferty, said that she created her organization in May of 2014 after watching the story of a mother in Washington State whose son was still born. “They brought her son to her wrapped in a wash cloth and when she got home she decided to use her wedding gown to make and angel outfit for him…That was the start of what later became “Angel Gowns,” she said.

Because of Lafferty’s ability to sew, she immediately searched to see if there was a group in Michigan that she could join. Unfortunately, Lafferty said that she could not find one so, she used Facebook to launch her new mission. According to Lafferty, the response was instant and within hours of posting her idea on that social media site several of her friends told her they would help. Shortly thereafter Lafferty had a basement full of volunteers to start sewing bridal dressing into precious infant burial gowns. She was soon flooded with donations.

“In the first year everything was funded by me,” Lafferty said. But, today Lafferty said her group relies on loving donations from women who want their wedding dresses used for Angel Gowns. As a result of the interest, she has created a list of drop off locations and mailing locations depending on where the donor lives. “We ask that if they would like to ship the gown that it be shipped directly to our studio. We also recommend that the donor remove part of their gown to keep as a momentum,” she said.

In just a year and a half, 2000 members have joined Lafferty’s online group where they coordinate drop off locations throughout the entire state of Michigan. “The volunteers collect the gowns for us and bring them to our studio when they have enough to make the trip worthwhile” she stated, “I have about 30 volunteer seamstresses along with photographers, volunteers that launder and dismantle gowns, a cutting department that is responsible for cutting out all gowns in varies sizes and genders, hand sewers, embellishers, pressers and a packaging department and shipping.”

Once Lafferty’s group finishes the gowns, they put them into little gift packages and donate them to hospitals. The typical package includes a burial/angel gown, a blanket, a hat, headband or bonnet, a burial wrap (which can be used to store ashes if a baby is cremated), and angel ornament, a piece of angel jewelry made from the beads and pearls from a donated gown, a pink and blue infant loss awareness ribbon, and a card.

AABG typical donation

In addition to the Angel Gowns, Lafferty said she hopes to raise funds to purchase a Cuddle Cot. “A Cuddle Cot is a cooling system that is used once the baby is born still to prevent the normal process of deterioration and allowing the family to have more time with the baby. We are also accepting monetary donation to purchase a Cuddle Cot,” Lafferty explained.

To do this, Lafferty said she has received a generous donation of brand new wedding dresses which she hopes to sell to young women on tight budgets, something that will help the new brides as well as grieving parents. “We have met some lovely people who have donated brand new high end gowns to us, so that we can offer them to brides for a donations to help fund our group, “ Lafferty said.

Angels Above Baby Gowns has grown substantially since Lafferty watched at that Washington State news report months ago. Today, Lafferty said they are even outgrowing their space, “We have outgrown our space and work area and are hoping for someone to donate a building for us to use as storage and work space,” she said, “we are all volunteers and we do this from our hearts.”

“If thousands of women have already been victimized by this cruel and heartless legislation, where are the rotting corpses we were promised?”~ Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher

Today, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has responded to claims issued by abortion supporters that thousands of women will die if abortion clinics close as a result of a newly enacted Texas law known as HB2.

Mark Crutcher TX ab Clinics July 2014

In a video just uploaded to YouTube, Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics responds, “Last year, the Texas legislature passed a bill raising the health and safety standards for the state’s abortion clinics. And even though the requirements of this new law are minimal, only about half of the state’s 36 abortion clinics have been able to comply. The rest have shut down and, come September, another dozen or so facilities are expected to close. That is when the second phase of this law will go into effect and it will require abortion clinics to meet the same medical standards as every other ambulatory surgical center in the state. Naturally, some abortion enthusiasts are describing this requirement as “draconian.”

“Now, a report has been released showing that, so far, almost 5,000 fewer abortions have been done as a direct result of this legislation. Naturally, the Texas abortion lobby has spiraled into a state of apoplectic shock over this. To hear them tell the story, Texas women are now on the endangered species list. Of course, this mirrors the dire warnings they issued back during the debate on this bill. At that time, they basically said that, if this legislation was passed, we would not be able to walk down the streets of any city in Texas without tripping over the rotting corpses of women killed because they could not find an abortionist.

“Fair enough. But here’s my question. If thousands of women have already been victimized by this cruel and heartless legislation, where are the rotting corpses we were promised? I realize it’s still early, but if this is going to be the holocaust these people predicted it would be, then 5,000 denied abortions have surely produced at least a small pile of dead bodies somewhere.

So where are they? And what are the victim’s names? Inquiring minds want to know.”

Black Planned Parenthood abortion patient dies – no one calls 911, why?

Posted in abortion clinic safety, Abortion complication, Abortion death, Planed Parenthood abortion death with tags , , , , , , on August 3, 2012 by saynsumthn

Pro-Life ACtion League is reporting that Planned Parenthood Did Not Call 911 to Get Help for Tonya Reaves
(August 3, 2012 at 3:00 pm)

Tonya Reaves

Tonya Reaves, victim of legal abortion

The Pro-Life Action League has just obtained documents verifying that Planned Parenthood’s Loop Health Center in Chicago did not call 911 on the day 24-year old Tonya Reaves died after having an abortion at the facility.

Documents obtained via the Freedom of Information Act show [PDF] that only one call to 911 was made on Friday, July 20 from the building located at 18 S. Michigan, which houses Planned Parenthood and several other tenants.

It’s unclear which tenant in the building placed that call, made at 12:46 p.m., but it was concerning an instance of child abuse, and thus could not possibly have been related to Tonya Reaves.

As previously reported, Reaves underwent a dilation and evacuation (D & E) abortion at 11:00 a.m. on July 20. Following the abortion, she experienced bleeding, but it wasn’t until 4:30 p.m. — five and a half hours later — that she was transported by a Chicago Fire Department ambulance to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to a report from CBS Radio affiliate WBBM.

Seven hours later, she was dead.


Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher, is calling on Cook County Illinois State’s Attorney, Anita Alvarez, to immediately launch an investigation into the death of Tonya Reaves. He says the investigation is necessary to determine if criminal charges are warranted under the state’s “depraved indifference murder” statutes.

On Friday the 20th of July, 2012, the 24-year-old African-American woman climbed onto a table at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago. The life of her unborn baby was to be snuffed out, but the abortionist did not stop there. In a few hours, Ms. Reaves would also be closing her eyes for the final time.

What is now known is that the Planned Parenthood abortionist ripped a hole in Ms. Reaves’ uterus and she began to hemorrhage. It is also known that the Planned Parenthood staff let her lie there for over five hours before they called an ambulance.

Crutcher says, “It is clear that Tonya’s life was less important to these people than the public relations hit they might take from her being hauled out of their facility on a stretcher. And so they just watched her bleed out. Imagine that the Chicago police shoot a 24-year-old man and leave him lying in the street without calling an ambulance. If that young man bleeds to death a few hours later, the public would be demanding that charges be brought against the officers involved whether the shooting was justified or not. And rightly so. Well, that certainly appears to mirror what happened here.”

Crutcher also asked why the Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world have been so uncharacteristically quiet, “These guys were willing to move heaven and earth to get justice for Trayvon Martin, but they write off Tonya Reeves like she never existed. Someone needs to ask these two why they think Trayvon’s life counts more than Tonya’s. Is it because she was killed by a group of people they happen to like?”

In calling for the investigation, Crutcher stated that, “If it can be shown that this young woman might have survived if emergency treatment had not been withheld from her for more than five hours, then this was not an accident and it was not medical malpractice. It was a homicide. And those responsible should be on the evening news wearing handcuffs and leg irons.”

Meanwhile…this link will take you to a story showing that Chicago Authorities rush to arrest pro-life activist on false charges BUT DO NOTHING about the murder of Tonya Reaves

Mark Crutcher may be best known for his bold undercover operations that have exposed shocking and even illegal activities inside the abortion industry. It was a Life Dynamics sting that caught Planned Parenthood and others in the abortion industry operating a nationwide pedophile protection ring, and another one that documented how abortion clinics make extra profit by selling the body parts of the babies they kill. Crutcher is also the producer of the powerful documentary which details the racist founding of Planned Parenthood, called Maafa21. The success of Mark’s covert surveillance efforts led one New York newspaper to label Life Dynamics “the CIA of the pro-life movement.”

Planned Parenthood has long maintained abortion is a safe option for women. They keep pictures of coat hangers before the public, assuring America that keeping abortion legal will protect women from harm. Yet, in 1972, Planned Parenthood funneled money to psychologist Harvey Karman who worked with (recently indicted Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortionist) Kermit Gosnell to implement a “super-coil” abortion method on 15 black pregnant women. These low-income women, all in their second trimester, were bussed from Chicago to Philadelphia for this “safe” procedure. Nine of these women were seriously harmed during the violent experiment, including one who had to have a hysterectomy.

Today, just like then, women’s lives and health are never the concern of Planned Parenthood and other abortionists.Abortion, the most unregulated surgical procedure in the nation, has left a trail of dead women and over 54 million babies in its wake where, disproportionately, thirty five percent of those dead babies are Black.

In addition to Crutcher, Black Pro-life Leaders across the nation are also calling for Justice for Tanya:

Ryan Bomberger, Chief Creative Officer of The Radiance Foundation believes: “Pro-abortion activists like to call abortion ‘reproductive justice,’ but we can only call this reproductive death. In the inverted and violent world of pro-abortion activism, ‘justice’ inflicts harm upon the weaker and the defenseless — the unborn.”

Stephen Broden, Senior Pastor of Fair Park Bible Fellowship believes: “The recent death of Tonya Reaves in Chicago is only one example of the tragic havoc Planned Parenthood has wreaked across America. They are a threat to our women, children and ultimately our survival. Their influence and presence must be removed from our community.”

Pro-abortion journalists claim conservatives are making this political. Catherine Davis, Founder and President of the Restoration Project, finds the accusation repugnant: “The tragedy in Chicago should never have happened. That facility was not medically equipped to handle a surgical late term abortion. This is about the failure of an organization that holds itself out as a champion of women, and women’s issues to champion reasonable medical standards.”

“At a minimum, Planned Parenthood was criminally negligent when they left Tonya bleeding in their facility for more than five hours. Planned Parenthood’s lack of action demonstrates a depraved indifference for the life of this young woman. Planned Parenthood must be held accountable for the death of Tonya Reaves,” said Walter Hoye of the Issues4Life Foundation, the California Civil Rights Foundation and the Frederick Douglass Foundation of California.

Rev. Arnold Culbreath, Director of Urban Outreach for Protecting Black Life agrees. “Surely the African-American community will wake up and stop giving Planned Parenthood a pass. Too many of our women and children have been butchered at their hands,” he said.

“We pray this tragedy awakens the collective conscience of Black America to a wretched and unregulated industry that is profiting from the deaths of children and the deliberate mis-education of young women,” said Dean Nelson, Chairman of the Frederick Douglass Foundation.

“We still believe that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said Alveda King, Founder of King for America. “We demand the unjust targeting of the black community by abortionists be investigated and immediately ended.”

A patient of a West Philadelphia doctor who is now under local and federal investigation speaks out.She was awaiting outpatient surgery at the doctor’s office last week when it was raided by city and federal agents.That’s part of a widening probe into possible late term abortions and the distribution of prescription drugs.

This young woman who asked us not to use her name or show her face says she had waited hours for Dr. Kermit Gosnell to arrive at his Lancaster Avenue clinic last week when it was raided.She says she was given drugs by the clinic staff members and began to have a miscarriage as police arrived.

She was raced to the hospital for an emergency procedure. She was upset when she found out that Gosnell is under investigation and has now had his license suspended“I’m glad I didn’t go through with what the procedure was here. They probably would have killed me,” she said.

Fox 29 went to Gosnell’s home today looking for comment. He was not there.Fox 29 also travelled to a Wilmington clinic where Gosnell worked part time.A staff member told us he no longer works there as of Monday, when his Pennsylvania license was suspended.Gosnell has been disciplined twice by Pennsylvania and New York.Authorities are also investigating the death of a 41-year-old woman who died after an abortion at Gosnell’s Philadelphia

Hospital turns away woman in labor, baby dies after home delivery
Dec 11, 2009

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – What killed Angel Nicole Dewberry?

It’s a question the Las Vegas Coroner’s Office is tackling after the baby girl died following an at-home delivery.

An attorney for Angel’s mother, Roshunda Abney, says Abney was in full labor last week when two local hospitals failed to help her. Less than an hour later, the baby was born at home and then died.

Abney’s attorney believes the case highlights what’s wrong with health care today.

The family says it all started with a trip to University Medical Center’s emergency room last week.

Abney had no idea she was pregnant when she began having severe pains.

“She went to a UMC Quick Care; they referred her to the emergency room,” said Attorney Jacob Hafter. “They called ahead and told the emergency room she was coming. They had a charge nurse in the emergency room that accepted care and said there was room in the emergency room. Then, when Ms. Abney arrived, registration could not have cared less. They stayed in the waiting room for six hours.”

Abney and her boyfriend, Raffinee Dewberry, eventually decided to go to nearby Valley Hospital where, they say, they were told to wait.

The couple went home where Angel was born less than an hour later with the help of paramedics.

The baby, born three months premature, did not survive.

In most cases, this would come down to the family’s word versus the word of hospital personnel, but this time there were witnesses: other patients in the waiting room who say Abney was shown little compassion.

“She was in more pain than I’ve ever seen,” witness Victoria Taylor said.

Taylor was at UMC to see a doctor herself and says she asked hospital staff to take Abney first.

“In some sense I feel guilty I didn’t do more because if I had known she was pregnant I would have done more,” said Taylor. “I would’ve said more but I was intimidated that I would be thrown out.”

Hafter says at this point a lawsuit has not been filed.

Both hospitals deny Abney’s version of what happened.

Hafter says the case is far from closed and believes what happened to Angel should never happen again.

A spokesperson for the Coroner’s Office says it could be weeks before they know a cause and manner of death.

A UMC spokesperson says the hospital is unable to comment on the details of the case but is using this incident to evaluate all processes involved.

The hospital is also reviewing all aspects of the care Abney received.

Since April, 114 Children Have Died from H1N1 — but 700,000 Have Died from Abortion

(CNSNews.com) – November 03, 2009
By Karen Schuberg

Swine flu has claimed the lives of at least 114 children in the United States since April, according to the latest data available from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). But an estimated 2,247 to 3,305 babies lose their lives to abortion each day, based on statistics compiled by both the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute, a private research foundation tied to the abortion industry.

A CDC report released last Friday placed the death toll from H1N1 at 114 for persons aged 18 or younger. The week of Oct. 18-24 saw 19 laboratory-confirmed pediatric deaths from H1N1. Since August, 65 children have died from the virus and 12 have died from an unkown subtype of Influenza A. Since April 26, only 1 child has died from seasonal flu.

Meanwhile, in a 2008 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), the CDC said that in 2005, the most recent year for which abortion data is available, 820,151 legal abortions were reported from 49 reporting areas. (Scroll down to p.1 of report — link above — for information).

According to Guttmacher data, which are considered more up-to-date and more accurate than federal government statistics, 3,305 babies on average lose their lives to abortion daily. In 2005, the number of abortions totaled 1,206,200 children, (see p. 9, Table 1).

Guttmacher spokeswoman Rebecca Wind told CNSNews.com that her organization’s data are more “complete” than the CDC’s because, rather than relying on state self-reports, Guttmacher contacts abortion providers directly.

“Guttmacher conducts a census of all known abortion providers in the United States,” Wind explained. “The CDC compiles data that are submitted by state departments of health and depend on state reporting requirements, which vary from state to state. In 2005, California, Louisiana, and New Hampshire did not provide data to the CDC.”

Moreover, the CDC does not factor in how many children die from the legal abortion-inducing drug mifepristone, also known as RU-486.

Based on the Guttmacher statistics, an estimated 694,050 children were killed by abortion over the last seven months — not including deaths from abortion drugs taken privately, outside of clinics.

Brian Clowes, director of research at Human Life International, told CNSNews.com that while it is “sad” that that 114 children have died from the H1N1 virus since April, the contrast is overwhelming.

“Over that same seven months, over 700,000 pre-born human beings have been killed legally by abortion in the United States,” Clowes said. “Yet we tolerate the death toll from abortion because we have come to believe, contrary to science and every mother’s experience, that the unborn human being really isn’t a human being.”

Clowes added: “This staggering inconsistency hardly even shocks us anymore, as the latest ‘pandemic’ never even begins to reach the death toll that we have grown to tolerate from legalized abortion. Ignoring the by-far-largest killer of children in favor of the latest fashionable panic goes beyond mere irony; it speaks of a deep societal sickness that we can hardly comprehend because it is so pervasive.”
