However they want to paint her days on this earth- she is responsible for thousands of deaths of unborn children.

According to Physicians for Reproductive Health, Abortionist Mildred Hanson spent 30 years as medical director of Planned Parenthood of Minnesota and South Dakota, while providing first and second trimester abortions at her own clinic.

In 1997, Mildred Hanson retired as Planned Parenthood Minnesota/South Dakota Medical Director. She is considered an icon in the abortion industry.

Hanson called the killing of unborn babies, ethical, Christian and godlike.

“I challenged myself: Is this right? Is this ethical? Is this Christian? Is this appropriate? Am I demeaning myself? Do I want to do abortions? There’s a lot of personal soul-searching. It’s not an easy decision that a physician makes to be an abortion provider. It’s something that we do, through our own personal soul-searching, over and over again,” she said.

“Abortion is a part of medical care, and people who seek abortions are every bit as ethical, as Christian—as godlike, if you will—as those who don’t have abortions. And I really believe that with all my heart. And the people who do abortions are every bit as ethical and as kind and loving and godlike as those who think abortion is wrong. I say that with every conviction I have. Abortion clearly has improved women’s health, no matter how you look at it.

Hanson also said that killing unborn children in the womb was as much a part of medical care as delivering babies.

“Providing abortion is as much a part of medical care as delivering babies and doing appendectomies and treating sore throats. It’s an integral part of medical care….It is not something that should be stigmatized. It should be a part of general and total medical care.” — Dr. Millie Hanson, in 2004.

Mary Doe plaintiff in abortion companion case dies

Posted in Abortion History, Abortion in the news, Roe with tags , , , , , , on September 30, 2014 by saynsumthn

Today, Sandra Cano, Mary Doe in the Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court Decision a companion decision to Roe v. Wade has lost her battle with cancer !

According to her friends on Facebook- she passed away September 30, 2014

Sandra Cano 61984_2814900918330453419_n

The case was called Doe. Vs. Bolton and it was the companion case for Roe V. Wade.

But Cano never wanted nor had an abortion. In fact, like Norma McCorvey – Roe in the Roe v. Wade case, Cano carried the pregnancy to term.

In 1970, she gave birth to a daughter but gave her up for adoption.

The Doe decision allowed for abortion up until the moment of birth if necessary for the health of the mother.

According to Cano, the original case was advanced without her understanding of what was going on.

Cano once spoke with the National Catholic Register’s senior writer Tim Drake about the case.

Cano, who has become pro-life once told the Catholic Register, “It’s a nightmare to be connected to a case that I never wanted to be connected to. Doe v. Bolton allows abortion up to the ninth month. This case takes children’s lives.”

She explained her connection to the abortion case:

“Back in 1970,” Cano begins, “I had a very complicated marriage and had two children in foster care. I was pregnant and wanted to get my babies back from foster care. I was poor, uneducated and ignorant. My life was very unstable. I was in a survival state. I went to Atlanta Legal Aid to get a divorce. Whoever was there to try to help me, I trusted. That’s how I became unknowingly involved with Doe v. Bolton. Never once did I know that we were going to kill babies.

“I can’t understand how a case like this could go to the Supreme Court without anyone knowing or speaking to me to find out if what the attorney was presenting to the court was true. I was so ignorant I didn’t know that there were two cases that legalized abortion.

“I ran away to Oklahoma to keep from having an abortion. They knew I was against abortion. Grady Memorial Hospital said I had gone before a panel of nine doctors and nurses to seek an abortion. I never sought an abortion. The hospital has no records because I never went to the hospital.

“It was only later that I learned that, through Margie Pitt Hames, I had sued Georgia Baptist Hospital to have an abortion.”

The Register asked how she discovered the truth and she replied, “In 1974, I went to Georgia Right to Life to try to find someone to help me. I told them that I was the woman who was involved in the abortion law, but didn’t know what it was about. They sent me to Fayetteville to seek help. On and off over the years, I would come forward, but when you don’t have money or people willing to help, a lot of people think you’re someone off the nut wagon.

“In the 1980s, I talked to an Atlanta Journal and Constitution newspaper reporter. She told me I had to prove who I was. I asked, “How do you do that?” She told me I had to go down to the court to verify that I was the person involved in the case. When I did that, they told me I had to go to the Federal Archives building. When I did that, they gave me this humongous book to look through. I didn’t understand half of it. I was out of my league. There was also a sealed envelope. I wanted to open it, but couldn’t. They told me that I would have to go to the court to have my records unsealed. Someone at the court showed me how to petition the court to unseal the records.

“A week later, Judge Owen Foster called me. He told me, “I don’t normally do this, but think you need a lawyer. We’re going to be hearing your case.” I found an attorney and went down to the court to unseal the records. Margie Pitt Hames didn’t want me to open the records.

After unsealing the records I wrote to the Supreme Court. They said that the statute of limitations had passed.”

“They connected my name to a case that I never knew about in the beginning, never participated in, never believed in. I carried a guilt for many, many years. I was just a pawn,” Cano told The Blaze.

In 1989, Cano was contacted by the daughter she gave up for adoption:

Sandra Cano Daughter

A post written on Cano’s Facebook page after her death reads, “She is more happy than anyone I know to be gracing heaven. If anyone knows how to enjoy it…it’ll be Sandra. WE love you, Sandra!!! Your name lives on as someone fought for the life of a child…not the right to kill it!!! Love you!!”

In 2005 Cano gave this testimony before the United States Senate Committee on the Judiciary

The Consequences of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton
June 23, 2005

Testimony of Sandra Cano the Former Doe of Doe v, Bolton, before the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 23, 2005

The Doe v. Bolton Supreme Court decision bears my name. I am Sandra Cano, the former ”Doe” of Doe v. Bolton. Doe v. Bolton is the companion case to Roe v. Wade. Using my name and life, Doe v. Bolton falsely created the health exception that led to abortion on demand and partial birth abortion. How it got there is still pretty much a mystery to me. I only sought legal assistance to get a divorce from my husband and to get my children from foster care. I was very vulnerable: poor and pregnant with my fourth child, but abortion never crossed my mind. Although it apparently was utmost in the mind of the attorney from whom I sought help. At one point during the legal proceedings, it was necessary for me to flee to Oklahoma to avoid the pressure being applied to have the abortion scheduled for me by this same attorney.

Please understand even though I have lived what many would consider an unstable life and overcome many devastating circumstances, at NO TIME did I ever have an abortion. l did not seek an abortion nor do I believe in abortion. Yet my name and life is now forever linked with the slaughter of 40-50 million babies.

I have tried to understand how it all happened. How did my divorce and child custody case become the basis by which bloody murder is done on infants thriving in the wombs of their mothers? How can cunning, wicked lawyers use an uneducated, defenseless pregnant woman to twist the American court system in such a fraudulent way? Doe has been a nightmare.

Over the last 32 years, I have become a prisoner of the case. It took me until 1988 to get my records unsealed in order for me to try and find the answer to those questions and to join in the movement to stop abortion in America. When pro abortion advocates found out about my efforts, my car was vandalized on one occasion and at another time, someone shot at me while I was on my front porch holding my grandbaby.

I am angry. I feel like my name, life, and identity have been stolen and put on this case without my knowledge and against my wishes. How dare they use my name and my life this way!

One of the Justices of the Supreme Court said during oral argument in my case “What does it matter if she is real or not.” Well I am real and it does matter.

R.I.P. Sandra Cano, God knows the truth and to Him it matters as well. Thanks for speaking up for life !!

Abortion doc found dead in his home

Posted in Abortionist with tags , , , , , , , on November 22, 2013 by saynsumthn

joseph-booker_200Authorities say Dr. Joseph Booker Jr., who was once the only abortion practitioner in Mississippi, has been found dead at his home in Madison.

Police Capt. Kevin Newman says there were no signs of foul play or forced entry at Booker’s home. The body has been sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy.

Booker at one time performed abortions in Gulfport and Jackson. Booker formerly practiced with Jackson Women’s Health Organization, Mississippi’s only abortion clinic, but the two parted ways when Booker filed a wrongful termination suit against the clinic in 2010.

Police said officers were called to Booker’s home at about 5:30 p.m. Thursday to respond to a welfare concern. “The police department was contacted by a relative that had been unable to reach Joseph Booker, Jr. for several days,” Newman said. “Once at the residence, officers were unable to make contact and entry was made into the house.”

There, officers discovered Booker, 69, was deceased. “There were no signs of forced entry prior to entering the residence and no signs of foul play,” Newman said.

He said Madison County Coroner Alex Breeland was summoned to the scene, as coroners are throughout the state when there is an unattended death.

Pro-Life Mississippi board of directors member Tanya Britton of Jackson said today she is “just sick” over Booker’s death.

“From a Christian perspective, I pray that he repented on the lives that he has taken, and that God is merciful,” Britton said. “I haven’t talked to him and would not presume to know the state of his soul.

In the past Booker has been sued for abortion related malpractice:

Default judgment in Mississippi abortion suit
Associated Press 12/2/2011

JACKSON — A state judge has entered a default judgment in a lawsuit that claimed a woman nearly died from a failed abortion in Mississippi that left her in a coma for a week.

Daschica Thomas and her husband filed the lawsuit in 2005 in Hinds County Circuit Court against Dr. Joseph Booker, the National Women’s Health Organization of Jackson and others. The suit claimed Thomas went into the coma because of a blood infection brought on by a botched abortion in 2003.

Circuit Judge William Gowan entered the default judgment in Thomas’ favor after the defendants didn’t show up for trial. The ruling didn’t mention damages, and it wasn’t immediately clear when that issue would be decided.

Thomas’ attorney had no comment when contacted by The Associated Press.

Mark Wann, who once represented Booker in the case, said he’s no longer involved in the litigation and wouldn’t comment. Wann said he doesn’t know where to find Booker. A phone number for Booker wasn’t immediately available.

The state Department of Health said Mississippi had two licensed abortion clinics in 2003, and the state has only one now. The current clinic is on the same Jackson site as the former clinic, but under different ownership.

Shannon Brewer is director of All Women’s Healthcare of Jackson, which is currently the only abortion clinic in Mississippi. She said the National Women’s Health Organization no longer owns the Mississippi clinic and Booker doesn’t work at the clinic now. Brewer said she doesn’t know where he is.

The lawsuit claims that Booker wasn’t the doctor originally scheduled to perform the abortion, but the other doctor was out that day. When Booker was performing the abortion, he allegedly stopped abruptly, said he couldn’t finish it and told Thomas to come back so it could be completed by the other doctor.

The lawsuit claims a “reasonably prudent” physician would have treated Thomas with antibiotics because of her diabetes, but Booker didn’t. Thomas allegedly came down with a blood infection, went into a coma and needed blood transfusions. The lawsuit also claims, among other things, that Thomas couldn’t have children after the abortion and that her husband lost his job for missing work while caring for her.

Booker performed abortions in Mississippi for years and found himself in controversial situations before.

In December 1999, three dozen bags of aborted fetuses and other remains were found buried in a shallow grave behind a business in the Gulf Coast city of Ocean Springs. An investigation revealed that the fetuses came from a storage room Booker had rented in nearby Gulfport, a city where he had performed abortions at a gynecology clinic.

Booker had pleaded guilty in July 1999 to tax evasion and was sentenced to five months in federal prison.

Someone purchased the contents of the storage unit, sight unseen, at auction and moved the items to a storage unit in Ocean Springs. Some of the items smelled and the new owner directed an employee to get rid of them, apparently not knowing they were fetuses.

In 1996, lawmakers passed a bill that required licensing for doctors’ offices at which 10 or more abortions were performed a month. That law was aimed at Booker, who had claimed his medical office did more than perform abortions and he did not have to meet requirements as an abortion clinic.

Woman dies from blood clot linked to birth control

Bank worker died of blood clot linked to Pill

4-9-2010 UK Telegraph

A bank worker who took the Pill for ten years was killed by a blood clot thought to have been caused by the contraceptive drug.

Jenna Morris, of Poulton, Wirral, died after a deep vein thrombosis developed in her legs and spread to her lungs.

Before she collapsed Miss Morris complained of shooting pains in her legs and within hours her mother Christine found her daughter’s body at her home in Merseyside.

A post mortem revealed she died of a blood clot, possibly caused by the contraceptive pills which she had been taking since she was a teenager.

Her devastated family today paid tribute to their “beautiful pink princess”.

Just weeks before the tragedy she had been signed-off work with ill health by her doctor who diagnosed kidney stones and prescribed a course of antibiotics.

Miss Morris’ sister Suzanne said: “I’m still in shock. I still cannot believe what happened. I keep thinking it is a terrible dream.

“Jenna was originally told she had kidney stones. She was due to go for a scan but it would not have detected the blood clot, which we were told was possibly caused by the contraceptive pill.

“People should be aware because it could happen to anyone. Jenna was our beautiful pink princess and a fantastic sister. I miss her so much.”

At the time of her death Jenna was planning a wedding to her fiance, Luke Hawson. who proposed to her on her 28th birthday in November last year.

An inquest into Jenna’s death has been opened and adjourned.

Lynn Hearton, Helpline and Information Services Manager, at sexual health charity FPA said: “The pill is an extremely safe method of contraception and fortunately reactions with women developing blood clots are rare.

“However there is a small risk which is highest in the first year of use. So the normal advice for women who have: previously had a blood clot, who are smokers over the age of 35 or who have mobility problems is that they should not use the pill.

“This is why it’s important to discuss your medical history with whoever prescribes your contraception and if anybody is worried, don’t stop using your pill, just seek advice from your health professional or FPA.“
