An Indiana news station has discovered that aborted babies are being shipped from out of state to an Indianapolis medical waste facility in violation of a state permit.

Medassure fetal aborted babies

Rafael Sanchez, a reporter with Indiana ABC affiliate RTV-6 said that the Indianapolis medical waste company MedAssure will be fined by the state after receiving aborted babies from an out-of-state Planned Parenthood clinic.

The information stemmed from a report filed by the Attorney General of Missouri on the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St Louis. The report details 317 abortion performed by Planned Parenthood in June of 2015, many raging from 13 – 20 weeks gestation. The report also showed that Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of St Louis Region paid Pathology Services in Brentwood, Mo. over $4000.00 for the disposal of medical waste. The company has since been the focus of protests by pro-life activists.

According to the document, the AG’s report also revealed that the Indianapolis MedAssure was receiving Planned Parenthood’s aborted babies.

Sanchez explains:

    Documents point to Pathology Services Incorporated of Missouri and MedAssure of Indianapolis.

    “Under their 2012 state permit, MedAssure can handle and treat medical waste and transport the waste to a final disposal facility. It can’t handle or process fetal remains.

A spokesperson for Indiana Department of Environmental Management told LifeSiteNews that they have levied a fine of $9,000 against MedAssure for violating its contract with the state.

“The company was not permitted to receive this waste, was specifically asked to not receive this waste” in the contract, explained the spokesperson, who also said that MedAssure has been “incredibly cooperative with us and agreed to resolve” the issues “quickly,” LifeSite News reported.

MedAssure’s Executive Vice President, Joseph Delloiacovo released the following statement to RTV-6, stating that MedAssure:

    Is fully aware of its permit conditions and fetal remains cannot be processed at our facility. Our policy prohibits taking such waste.

    It should also be understood that the generator is responsible for segregating waste items before packaging the waste for pick-up by MedAssure according to federal and states law and other provisions under contract.

The controversy over where abortion clinics can ship medical waste has been an issue for years following the discovery of medical waste companies like SteriCycle discarding of fetal remains. The issue was raised at a recent National Abortion Federation Conference where undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress recorded a Michigan abortion clinic owner joking that she wanted to take aborted babies from her clinic into a field and burn them because she lacked places to dispose of them. In addition, Renee Chelian, owner of the Michigan abortion facility chain, Northland Family Planning, suggested to her audience that the disposal problem belongs to the women who pay her to abort their babies.

As Live Action News previously reported, Chelian, who worked with Stericycle, said she was overwhelmed with the remains of baby parts stockpiling in her facility freezers. For five months, Chelian described how aborted babies were packed in freezers, and she had to find a way to discard of them. No company seemed willing —at first— to help her staff dispose of the remains. She told the members at the 2014 National Abortion Federation conference that her clinics could perhaps buy a plot in Detroit for incinerators and if all else failed, the garbage disposal was also an option:

    Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. Um, and nobody but me. I’m just saying. There was a point when Stericycle fired us that I had 5 months worth of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in.

    It was all I thought about, was fetal tissue. Like, I was so consumed with fetal tissue, I was ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire. And I was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped. Or, you know, how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody was going to see me… I mean it was the worst, I dreamed about how to dispose of fetal tissue. And the garbage disposal was an option…”

After the Missouri investigation of Planned Parenthood revealed their association with the Brentwood Pathological company, St Louis Today reported that Mike Hoey, Missouri Catholic Conference executive director, sent a letter to Pathology Services Inc. saying its “lab workers are part of the assembly line of the abortion industry.”

    “By agreeing, in advance, to take the human remains of these children aborted while in utero, you are facilitating this taking of innocent human life,” Hoey wrote. “Knowing this, your only moral recourse is to say “NO, we will no longer cooperate, we will no longer help kill unborn babies.”

Marc Tuttle, spokesperson for Right to Life of Indianapolis noted that the investigation by RTV-6 is shedding light on fetal disposal in Indiana just as the state legislature is considering new legislation that would require humane disposal of all babies killed through abortion.

House Bill 1337 passed the Indiana House last week and was recommended to the Senate where it is currently under consideration.

Secretly recorded tape reveals abortion clinic chain using similar fetal research methods as Planned Parenthood

Posted in Abortion clinic, Abortion Worker, Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

In a leaked under cover tape, an abortion clinic chain is exposed using similar dehumanizing fetal research methods a Planned Parenthood.

The video was secretly recorded at a National Abortion Federation Conference by the Center for Medical Progress and was leaked to GotNews.com by a hacker last week. In part one, of the Fetal Disposition series you hear a representative from a Washington State abortion clinic describe their fetal tissue research program. In an eerily similar way that the Center for Medical Progress caught Planned Parenthood describing their ghoulish method of procuring tissue from babies they aborted, the Cedar River abortion clinic chain employee brags they are doing the same thing.

Although the staffer identified only as “Connie” does not specify which University they have their research program through, she does indicate that Cedar River abortion clinics collaborate with some of the same private medical research facilities as Planned Parenthood. Connie begins her talk with National Abortion Federation (NAF) conference attendees by showing a slide which reads, “Fetal Tissue disposition of fetal tissue and working collaboratively with Biomedical research projects.”

Cedar RIver abortion fetal tissue

Connie brags that Cedar Rivers is among the “pioneers of first and second trimester abortion” which operates “three clinical sites.” She describes the Cedar River abortion chain as a “proud abortion provider.” Connie also brags that Cedar River offers abortions “up to 26 weeks elective” meaning that they will end the life if an unborn child in the third trimester for any reason the mother should desire to have the baby aborted.

Cedar Rover abortion third trimester

Connie expresses her pride in the fact that Cedar River will pursue any possibility to work with research projects by couching their horrific operation of using the tissue of aborted babies as “reproductive health care.” Calling it “fortunate” to practice in Washington State, Connie claims women are “empowered” if they can “make choices” that include “what happens to the fetal tissue after the abortion.” She then details what her state allows abortion clinics to do with the body of the dead child including, includes burial, cremation, incineration and donation.” Connie adds that they contract with Stericycle for medical waste disposal.

She tells her audience that they have counted the cost for getting involved in fetal tissue research or as she calls it “human subject research” because Cedar River understands the “target they’d be placing on our backs” when they began their program. “We learned about the ethical principles of human subject research. What types of human research was regulated…Regulatory protections for research subjects. And last, informed consent as it relates to human subject research,” she adds.

The abortion clinic worker then further dehumanizes the babies they kill by coldly describing the process of sending the “tissue” to the lab as if she is shipping lollipops and not parts of humans. She even refers to shipping and processing – something we are used to hearing when we place orders for gadgets online not when we are talking about little children.In the recording you can hear Connie tell the NAF member audience in her session the “work flow” program Cedar River has put in place includes, “enrollment eligibility, program overview and informed consent, and then fetal tissue processing, handling and packaging.”

She emphasized that women who enroll in the “program” are not compensated. But, she states, that the University “rents” a space where they conduct their “research” and procure the “fetal tissue.” In another dehumanizing reference to the child her clinic has aborted, Connie notes that clinical staff must be trained on how to handle “the specimen” after the abortion including “packaging and labeling and storage of the specimen prior to courier pickup.”

“Upon receipt of the tissue at the lab, the University staff actually performs a dissection of the fetus and placental tissue and then those components collected for research are forwarded onto their in-house projects and other academic research projects across the country,” she says.

It is almost hard to fathom using clinical terms in such a fashion with no remorse as if the child is part of an automobile and not a living human person. The clinic staffer does her best to convince her audience that what Cedar River abortion clinics is doing is a good thing because it would benefit medical research. And this is exactly how Connie and her Cedar River abortion staff pitch it to women seeking abortions at their facilities. It is clear to those who listen to Connie that fetal tissue donation is helping to ease the conscience of women who pay to have their children killed. In fact, Cedar River admittedly offers women a place where they can memorialize their dead child which the clinic just tore apart into tiny little pieces before being shipped to a research lab.

As Connie puts it, if the tissue is not used for research it is “disposed of by cremation” and then “buried at a group burial plot provided by the University.” And, she states, for a “minimal expense” women can place a small plaque for memorial purposes at the burial site, something the abortion worker said is an “appreciated option for many women who cannot afford private burial and cremation and would like to do so.”

Connie’s Cedar River abortion clinic is doing exactly what the Center for Medical Progress exposed Planned Parenthood for doing. They are talking women into donating their babies for medical research. And what happens to those children is no different at Cedar River than it was at Planned Parenthood. In fact, Connie tells her audience that they have collaborated with the same private specter research lab as Planned Parenthood partnered with, Stem Express.

“We’re really fortunate to be able to work together with both of these, the University and Stem Express to make this happen,” she says.

Pro-lifers rib Planned Parenthood ( pun intended) over baby parts operation

As the second video is released showing Planned Parenthood in a baby parts harvesting operation, the meme’s have flooding in.

Matry Gatter Planned Parenthood

Tuesday the world heard Planned Parenthood doctor Mary Gatter say, “I want a Lamborghini” when haggling over the price of the aborted body parts with Center for Medical Progress undercover actors.

Last week I posted some images after video of Planned Parenthood abortionist Deborah Nucatola was published showing her offering to “crush below” and “crush above” the baby in the womb to preserve the precise organ for their buyers.

Tuesday’s image responses, ranged from more well known pro-life people like Lila Rose of Live Action, Charmaine Yoest of Americans United for Life, Ryan Bomberger of the Radiance Foundation, the March for Life, Students for Life, and others who filled social media feeds:

The day I saw abortion first hand

Posted in Aborted Baby Body Parts, Aborted Baby Trash, Abortion clinic medical waste, abortion clinic safety, Abortion death, Abortion Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2015 by saynsumthn

This week we enter the 42nd year of legalized abortion in the United States and I think back to the day I came up close and personal with abortion. The day I saw abortion victims first hand!

I have witnessed many things over the past thirty three years in this fight for the sanctity of human life in numerous states where I stood against child killing. Protests, police abuse, men dragging women into the abortion clinic, and even the funeral of a woman killed from legal abortion.

Her name was Carolina Gutierrez and she received such a serious infection by the legal abortion facility she visited that they had to amputate parts of her body to try and save her life. But, the infection won and Carolina and her unborn child became a statistic in the abortion battle.

I took these pictures with the permission of her family, while attending her funeral:

The funeral was very emotional. Her story had been in the news for days and knowing the truth about the condition of the abortion clinics in my county caused me to be angry, especially, in light of the continued silence by abortion advocates when women die.

But nothing ever affected me more than seeing the real victims of legalized abortion up close, the broken bodies of the unborn babies.

We knew the abortion clinics could be throwing the aborted babies in the trash. So, how would we know which clinics were disposing the babies illegally? There was no way to know- we’d have to go to various ones and pull the trash to see.

That was a daunting task. But finally, our work paid off.

It was a Saturday afternoon when we approached a clinic located in a strip mall. The abortionist shared the dumpster with other business owners and we received permission to remove some discarded wood from the trash. Our real goal though, was the clinic’s trash- BINGO!

We grabbed several bags over a period of time, until, one day, we discovered that inside the bags were the containers that held babies aborted by suction abortion.

Then came the task of opening up each and every gauze sac. I stilled myself to open each one , knowing what I might see – not knowing how I’d react to it.

Several did indeed look like ground meat.

IMG_2912IMG_2915

To see their fragile little bodies so ground up that no distinguishable pieces remained was not entirely a surprise – after all – these were early abortions and babies that had been violently sucked out through a tube and into these jars.

Then…after carefully slicing one gauze sac, there it was. The fully formed arm of an aborted child.

Then a leg, another leg, ribs, skull, etc…

______________________________________________

As we rummaged through the bags we could see the medical records of the women whose children lay torn in pieces.

The cold-hearted abortionist had discarded the bodies of these dead babies in the trash along with their mother’s medical records with no care or concern for either.

At the bottom of the bag, we found a large foot which a pathologist later confirmed was from an unborn baby approximately 5 months gestation. The remaining body parts of that child were not in the bags we had.

As we meticulously went through the bags from that abortion clinic, I found myself feeling detached- I was looking squarely at the tiny remains of babies who suffered a horrific death and yet I had little emotion. After all, I had to finish the job I set out to do, I had to continue looking through the bags and opening each and every sac. Was I heartless? Uncaring? Unfeeling? Or was I being scientific and doing a job that had to be done?

I wrestled with this for a few days. And then….

The day arrived for the funeral for these little babies. We told no one who found them. In reality, those who attended did not care about the details – they cared only about giving these precious unborn children a decent burial. They wanted them remembered – their lives must count !

1185348_577035462355123_1505177369_n

I attended the funeral like a pro, covering it for a pro-life magazine I wrote for at the time. As a journalist, I stood on stage watching people tearfully come forward and lay a rose – the symbol of life- on the small casket we purchased to place the tiny pieces of their broken bodies in.

One moment I was snapping pictures and the next….the next moment I was sobbing uncontrollably in the arms of an usher who was standing beside me on the stage. He must have seen a look in my eyes because his large torso was a comfort as I completely lost it and wept like a mother who just received the news that her beloved child was dead.

The tears and groans continued for a while and took me by surprise. After all, I was a professional, I was detached, I was looking at this from a journalists point of view – I was HUMAN!

As I write this today, I feel a lump in my throat as the memory of what I saw wells up inside me. I often think about the idea that abortion does not affect those who participate in it – the mothers, doctors, nurses, and clinic staff and I have to conclude that it absolutely does affect them.

As a young girl, I used to watch documentaries about the Nazi Holocaust and the Jews they slaughtered mercilessly.

Most people watched those films with great interest in the stories and facts they document.

But, for me, when I watched them, I recalled asking in the midst of my outrage, “ Who took those pictures?

I remember thinking that had those pictures never been taken, society would not be sitting here today in absolute horror of what took place.

I knew at that moment that I wanted to document the abortion holocaust, and by the guidance of God, in some small way, I have.

Meat Grinder Abortion

(H/T Life Dynamics social media page Prolifeamerica on Facebook)

In a letter written by abortion doctor: Curtis Stover to the Colorado Department of Health, he accused another abortion doctor, James J. Parks of improper disposal of the aborted babies. Stover claimed that Parks who ran the Mayfair Women’s Center was placing aborted babies up to 22 weeks gestation in an “outside trash container”, because he said that the babies would, “clog up his commode”.

Stover also accused Parks of, “assembling an old fashioned meat grinder” and using it to grind the fetuses up on a daily basis.

10-SS-meat-grinder

In his official affidavit, Stover gave this eyewitness testimony, “At the end of the workday, Dr. James J Parks the owner of the Mayfair Women’s Center demonstrated to me this method of fetal disposal. We went into a utility room that was used for such things as sterilizing instruments. On the countertop were several white plastic buckets, each containing fetuses from about 15 to 22 weeks size. Dr. Parks reached up to a shelf and brought down several pieces of metal that were parts of a meat grinder and placed them on the counter. Next, he assembled the grinder and clamped it to the countertop. As I looked at the grinder, I realized that it was very old and resembled the same meat grinder my mother used years ago to grind meat into hamburger meat. Dr. Parks then began to empty each bucket into the hopper on top of the grinder, and with his left hand pressed the fetal tissue down into the hopper as he turned the handle with his right hand, grinding the tissue. As he did this the tissue oozed out of the end of the grinder like multiple tubes of pink toothpaste. Though I have seen many disturbing and unsightly things in my 20 years of medical experience, I was not prepared for this. I became instantly nauseated and vomited. All the fetuses were ground into a large bucket, he dumped the contents into the sink and washed it down the sink with water.”

Curtis Stover Meat Grinder Affidavit

In November of 1989, a Dr. James J. Parks of Denver, was mentioned in a New York Times article entitled More U.S. Curbs Urged in the Use Of Fetal Tissue. The Times said he supplied fetal tissue free to researchers at the University of Colorado.
