A Texas abortion facility which is a member of the National Abortion Federation (NAF) has been fined over $20,000 for a number of serious health violations found during a state inspection. The Houston Women’s Clinic, located at 4820 San Jacinto in Houston, opened in 1976 and commits abortions up to 16 weeks. It is operated by abortionist Bernard Rosenfeld. A second doctor, Yuri Nosaville, M.D., is listed on the clinic’s medical history forms.

Rosenfeld, who owns the Houston Women’s [abortion] Clinic and offers tubal reversals out of a second location, has been committing abortions since 1971. He was recently “honored” by the pro-abortion Lilith Fund and his website claims he is “on staff at Texas Women’s and St. Luke’s Hospitals in the Texas Medical Center.”

In 2015, the Texas Medical Board filed a board action against Rosenfeld which indicated that the abortionist failed to register his facility with the Texas Department of State Health Services. LifeSiteNews reported, “The Texas Alliance for Life said its offices had been ‘tipped off by a local pro-life leader’ that Rosenfeld had been performing abortions, not only at Houston Women’s Clinic — which advertises itself as ‘among the best abortion clinics in Houston’ — but in his private medical office. He even advertised his private abortion services online.”

As a result, the State Board ordered him to complete eight hours of continuing medical education and remove any advertisements for abortions services from his website.

The next year (2016), Rosenfeld’s Houston abortion facility was inspected by the state.

The findings, which are eerily similar to what was found inside the Gosnell House of Horrors abortion facility, include the abysmal treatment of a patient with post-abortion complications as well as serious infection control issues, may be an indication why the abortionist did not want to register his facility.

According to the Order, obtained by Live Action News, an inspection of the abortion facility was performed in August of 2016 and by February of 2017, Houston Women’s Clinic or “Respondent” admitted to the violations and agreed to pay a substantial penalty of $20,300:

According to the Notice of Violations, Houston Women’s Clinic failed to:

  • Meet at least quarterly to identify issues with respect to which quality assurance activities are necessary.
  • Make available current/accurate information for visitors and patients on how to file complaints.
  • Develop or implement a post-procedure infection monitoring policy.
  • Conduct annual evaluations and infection control training.
  • Maintain documentation of required laboratory testing and vaccinations of staff.
  • Provide a safe and sanitary environment to protect the health and safety of patients and staff.
  • Enforce infection control policies to minimize the transmission of infection.
  • Properly package and document instruments to be sterilized.
  • Use external chemical indicators.
  • Follow manufacturer’s written instructions in sterilizing instruments.
  • Provide and ensure proper and adequate storage of sterilized items.
  • Document and maintains clinical records adequately.
  • Develop and implement policies and procedures for patient post-procedure follow-up.
  • Ensure that schedule II-V drugs were properly secured.

The document reveals the clinic also:

  • Did not have records of making any post-procedure follow-up attempts on 11 patients.
  • Had a lack of infection control training for six staff members.
  • Had 22 instances of sterilization, sanitation and safety issues.
  • The facility failed to safeguard against the proliferation of infection in three procedure rooms.
  • The facility referred a patient who reported post-abortion complications to an emergency room and did not attempt to further inquire about her condition or confirm that she sought treatment.

The facility’s other abortionist, Yury Joseph Nosaville, has connections to the notorious abortionist dubbed “Texas Gosnell.”

In 2014, pro-life watchdog group Operation Rescue reported that Nosaville was working for abortionist Douglas Karpen. According to OR, Karpen’s “former abortion workers alleged that Karpen was intentionally killing babies born alive during abortions done beyond the legal limit by cutting their throats or twisting their heads nearly off their bodies.”  [View report with photos — WARNING.]

An interview with the witnesses can be viewed below:

OR also reported that “Nosaville was known by some of Karpen’s staff as ‘Dr. Jab-and-Stab’ due to the way he apparently rushed roughly through abortion procedures.”

A patient review published at Vitals.com for Dr. Nosaville, which does not specify the location the patient visited, indicates there could be potential problems with his Nosaville’s quality of care. It reads in part:

[…]It was unpleasant to wait for over an hour past the appointment time seeing woman after woman arriving back dizzy after seemingly having had an abortion. The staff is hardly friendly…

In March of 2018, the state performed another inspection of the Houston Women’s Clinic and again found violations. The 23-page report is yet another indication that nothing has changed.

Tragically, the kind of violations found inside this Houston abortion facility are not unique. In 2016, Operation Rescue reviewed public documents and found that between August 2015 and June 2016, 16 of 17 Texas abortion facilities failed health and safety inspections.

Abortionist to pro-life protester “I’ll give you two weeks before my lawyer gets you”

In a video uploaded to YouTube, abortionist James Gengelbach tells a pro-lifer outside the Bread and Roses abortion clinic in Clearwater, Florida that he is not allowed to take and or post his picture online.

Abortion Doc Bread and Roses

Hey Deb, police told us last week – you cannot take my picture in the workplace,” Gengelbach says.

If you’re here again next week, I’m call’n the cops,” the abortionists threatens, “Any pictures you’ve taken and put on websites have to take them down,” he says.

He then tells her, “I’ll give you two weeks before my lawyer gets you, OK?

The abortion clinic administrator is Dorothy Brown and the clinic is owned by Diana Thomas under the corporate name INDIAN ROCKS WOMAN’S CENTER, INC.

The clinic had been previously owned by Jodell Nauert who inherited the abortion clinic chain from her abortionist husband George when he died in 2007.

Nauert is a singer in a country/rock band called Angelus.

According to the Agency for Healthcare Administration, which regulates abortion clinics in the state, the 1560 South Highland Ave, Clearwater location was fined $200.00 last year for failing to submit a requited monthly report of abortions performed on time.

Bread and Roses fined by ACA

In 2010, the abortion clinic was cited under the name INDIAN ROCKS WOMAN’S CENTER, INC for the exact same thing.

Oddly enough, it also happened in 2009 and again in 2008.

Maybe the abortionists should get the clinic he works for to clean up their own act first before insisting that pro-lifers comply with “the rules.”

Just say’n that those who live in glass houses should not throw stones.

According to the website www.abortiondocs.org Gengelbach also works at the Audre Rapoport Women’s Health Center-Planned Parenthood.

The Osteopath’s other locations on record at the state Medical Board website include:

Planned Parenthood fined by state in campaign finance matter was ObamaCare navigator

An affiliate of Planned Parenthood of Northern New England will pay $30,000 to the state of Vermont to settle a claim that it violated the state’s campaign finance laws in 2010.

Attorney General Bill Sorrell said the group’s PPNNE Action Fund spent about $119,000 on political advertisements advocating against Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Dubie without filing the required reports at the secretary of state’s office.

The attorney general said the fund also got contributions from individual donors in amounts greater than the $2,000 limit allowed by law.

But in a statement, the Attorney General’s Office said there was “significant overlap” between the PAC, and the Action Fund.

It reads:

The State of Vermont has reached a settlement with Planned Parenthood of Northern New England Action Fund (“PPNNE Action Fund”) after investigating a campaign finance complaint regarding its activities in the 2010 general election cycle. PPPNNE Action Fund will pay a penalty of $30,000.

The investigation focused on allegations by Let Vermont Vote that PPNNE Action Fund had failed to comply with political committee reporting requirements and other campaign finance laws. During the 2010 gubernatorial campaign, PPNNE Action Fund spent about $119,000 on political advertisements advocating against Brian Dubie and received contributions from individual donors in amounts greater than $2,000. Thus, it qualified as a political committee. PPNNE Action Fund should have registered and filed reports of its campaign finances with the Secretary of State. In addition, as a PAC, it could not accept contributions in excess of $2,000 from any one donor.

In response to the investigation, PPNNE Action Fund claimed it was an independent-expenditure-only PAC and should be exempt from contribution limits under the Attorney General’s enforcement policy announced in July 2012. Independent expenditures are ones that are not made directly to candidates or coordinated with them.

In considering a possible contribution limit violation, the State did not find any evidence that PPNNE Action Fund coordinated campaign advertising with the Shumlin campaign. However, Planned Parenthood operated a PAC called PPNNE VT-PAC, which has made direct contributions to candidates in other elections. The State contended that a full examination of the operations of PPNNE Action Fund and PPNNE VT-PAC would reveal significant overlap in their planning, activities, and finances, which would establish that PPNNE Action Fund did not make only independent political expenditures. PPNNE disputed the State’s contention. To avoid the burden and expense of an examination of its operations, PPNNE Action Fund chose to settle this matter.

“All PACs must file campaign finance reports, and donors may not give a PAC more than $2,000 in contributions. Only independent-expenditure PACs are currently excused from this contribution limit,” said Attorney General William Sorrell. “A PAC must demonstrate that it makes only independent expenditures in order to qualify for this exception. Otherwise, the PAC will continue to be subject to Vermont’s contribution limits,” explained Attorney General Sorrell.

According to blogger Jill Stanek, in August 2012 Planned Parenthood of Northern New England was one of three Planned Parenthoods to whom HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius awarded grants to serve as Obamacare ”navigators” to help people enroll in Obamacare. PPNNE was given $145,161 from a total of $655,000 awarded to the three.

The Obama administration had to know PPNNE was under investigation when it awarded PPNNE the grant. Or perhaps PPNNE didn’t acknowledge the investigation when applying for the grant? Either way, something smells.

More odorous info: At the time of PPNNE’s grant award, Steve Trombley was the CEO. Trombley was formerly CEO of Planned Parenthood of Chicago, and then Planned Parenthood of Illinois, when Obama was state senator and U.S. senator. The two men were close allies. Obama even gave Trombley a shout out to during his infamous speech to Planned Parenthood in 2008 (:41 on the video).

Earlier this month New Hampshire Right to Life sued PPNNE for prescribing the RU486 abortion pill too late in the pregnancy, contrary to FDA protocol, which violates state law.
