Sally Kohn

Fox News Contributor Sally Kohn posted a speech she gave to NARAL, an abortion rights group, on the Daily Beast. In the speech, Kohn completely misleads her audience and rewrites the history of abortionist Kermit Gosnell.

Kohn writes, “West Philadelphia is where Kermit Gosnell ran an underground, illegal abortion clinic. Thankfully, Gosnell was exposed because of abortion activists, and Gosnell was tried and convicted of three counts of first-degree murder. He was sentenced to life without parole for each of the three murders. And, as a side note, I feel deeply conflicted about our system of aggressive prosecution and incarceration in America—but I don’t for a second feel conflicted about a Gosnell being locked up forever for his crimes.

“Reading about the atrocities in Gosnell’s clinic—it takes your breath away. What he did was monstrous. Monstrous. And thanks to repeated exposure by reproductive justice activists and feminist journalists, Gosnell was exposed and arrested and tried and convicted for his crimes. What Gosnell did wasn’t medical treatment. It was illegal, unethical and criminal. Period.”

Kohn’s words are pure unadulterated SPIN at the very best, if not outright lies.

Let’s break this down.

First Kohn lies when she claims that Gosnell ran an underground/illegal abortion clinic.

UNDERGROUND? Hardly – from the Associated Press

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.

Doctors at the University of Pennsylvania Health System, which operates two hospitals within a mile of Gosnell’s squalid abortion clinic in West Philadelphia, saw at least six of these patients — two of whom died. But they largely failed in their legal and ethical duties to report their peer’s incompetence, according to a grand jury report.

“We are very troubled that almost all of the doctors who treated these women routinely failed to report a fellow physician who was so obviously endangering his patients,” wrote the Philadelphia grand jurors, who recommended a slew of charges against Gosnell and his staff in January.

The health system — in apparent contradiction of the grand jury report — released a statement saying that it had “provided reports to the authorities regarding patients of Dr. Gosnell who sought additional care at our hospitals” starting in 1999.

But the system’s attorneys could produce only a single report for the grand jury. That involved 22-year-old Semika Shaw, who died at the university hospital of internal bleeding and sepsis after a botched abortion in 2000. Gosnell’s insurers ultimately paid out a $900,000 settlement in that case.

Health system spokeswoman Susan Phillips later clarified the statement, saying “we have staff who specifically recall making oral reports” to state officials about Gosnell.

“Unfortunately, we have not been able to find additional written reports from these past years,” she wrote in an email.

A Philadelphia doctor and suburban medical examiner who did blow the whistle said they never heard back from state officials, whose repeated lapses helped Gosnell to operate unchecked for years.

Latosha Lewis, a Gosnell employee, testified that emergency room staff at the university hospital told her they treated many Gosnell patients, the report said.

ILLEGAL? Hardly- Gosnell was licensed and approved by the state:

Gosnell opened his Women’s Medical Society at 38th Street and Lancaster Avenue in 1979.

The Department of Health first granted approval for the Women’s Medical Center to provide abortions at 3801 Lancaster Avenue on December 20, 1979. The approval followed an on-site review and was good for 12 months. The DOH “site review” at the time identified a certified obstetrician/gynecologist, Joni Magee, as the medical director, with Gosnell listed as a staff physician. The report noted that a registered nurse worked two days a week, four hours a day, and that lab work was sent out to an outside laboratory.

FIRST INSPECTION – The Pennsylvania Department of Health had contact with the Women’s Medical Society dating back to 1979, when it first issued approval to open an abortion clinic. 1979- Pennsylvania Department of Health approval to do abortions at his clinic in 1979, after an on-site inspection.

The Pennsylvania Department of Health did not conduct another site review until 1989, ten years later. Numerous violations were already apparent, but Gosnell got a pass when he promised to fix them.

In 1992, The Pennsylvania Department of Health Site reviews in 1992 and 1993 also noted various violations, but again failed to ensure they were corrected. Sometime after 1993, the department of health instituted a policy of inspecting abortion clinics only when there was a complaint, but the grand jury found that it didn’t even do that.

After Gov. Tom Ridge, who supported abortion, was elected, the state Department of Health stopped inspecting abortion clinics. That practice continued under Gov. Mark Schweiker and Gov. Ed Rendell. It was not until after a drug raid in February 2010 at Gosnell’s clinic that the Health Department resumed regular abortion clinic inspections, according to The Associated Press. Since then 14 of the state’s 22 freestanding abortion clinics have been ordered to remedy problems

Gosnell has hardly been an underground nor illegal abortion clinic, Gosnell was allowed to stay in business as pro-abortion regulators turned a blind eye.

In fact, almost a decade ago, a former employee of Gosnell presented the Board of Medicine with a complaint that laid out the whole scope of his operation: the unclean, unsterile
conditions; the unlicensed workers; the unsupervised sedation; the underage abortion patients; even the over-prescribing of pain pills with high resale value on the street. Department assigned an investigator, whose investigation consisted primarily of an offsite interview with Gosnell.

The investigator never inspected the facility, questioned other employees, or reviewed any records. Department attorneys chose to accept this incomplete investigation, and dismissed the complaint as unconfirmed. Shortly thereafter the department received an even more disturbing report – about a woman, years before Karnamaya Mongar, who died of sepsis after Gosnell perforated her uterus. The woman was 22 years old. A civil suit against Gosnell was settled for almost a million dollars, and the insurance company forwarded the information to the department. That report should have been all the confirmation needed for the complaint from the former employee that was already in the department’s possession. Instead, the department attorneys dismissed this complaint too. They concluded that death was just an “inherent” risk, not something that should jeopardize a doctor’s medical license.

Between 2002 and 2009, the grand jury learned, attorneys for the state’s medical licensing board reviewed five cases against Gosnell. They closed three without investigation. The last two were investigated and closed without action -including the death of a 22-year-old whose family sued Gosnell and received a $400,000 settlement.

Between 2002 and 2009, Board of Medicine attorneys reviewed five cases involving malpractice and other complaints against Gosnell. (The Grand Jury also received records of three older complaints – from 1983, 1990, and 1992 – one of which resulted in a reprimand.) None of the assigned attorneys, or their supervisors, suggested that the Board take action against the deviant doctor. In fact, despite serious allegations, three of the cases were closed without any investigation. The other two were investigated and then closed – without any action being taken.

Then, in In January 2002, an attorney representing Semika Shaw, a 22-year-old woman who had died following an abortion at Gosnell’s clinic, wrote to authorties requesting copies of inspection reports for any on-site inspections of the clinic conducted by DOH. Staloski wrote to the attorney that no inspections had been conducted since 1993 because DOH had received no complaints about the clinic in that time.…In other words, Gosnell was fully licensed yet UNREGULATED !

Years earlier, in August 2003, another branch of the city’s health department had received an anonymous complaint about Women’s Medical Society. Mandi Davis, a sanitation specialist in the environmental engineering section, wrote a memo to a colleague at the department, Ken Gruen, with a copy to then-Assistant Health Commissioner Izzat Melhem. She informed them that she had received a “rather disturbing” complaint of aborted fetuses stored in paper bags in an employee refrigerator
at Gosnell’s clinic. Davis requested that a site visit be conducted to assure that proper infectiouswaste handling and disposal practices were in place. Davis further instructed Gruen: “I am not expecting a ‘wild goose chase’ for aborted fetuses.” Current Philadelphia Health Commissioner Donald Schwarz testified that notations on the memo seem to indicate that a site visit was, in fact, made. The city health department, however, could not produce any report of that site visit. Nor is there evidence that the department took any action against Gosnell for his dangerous handling of medical waste, or for his failure to have an approved infectious waste plan, as is required by the city Health Code.

Gosnell biohazard-bags-gal

On May 7, 2004, a city health department inspector was sent to the clinic. His report stated that proper labels were missing from areas where waste was stored; that red bag containers for infectious waste were not lidded; that marked boxes of infectious waste were sitting on the basement floor – not raised as they should be; that red bags for pick-up were not properly stored in the basement; and that the clinic did not provide a contract with a disposal company. Gosnell subsequently produced some more paperwork, including a copy of a contract for disposal. However, he never paid his fee. The city never approved his medical waste plan. And he never cleaned up the infectious waste. Yet five years later, he was still operating.

In 2008, a City of Philadelphia employee, a registered nurse named Lori Matijkiw, did notice and report the abysmal conditions she observed at Gosnell’s clinic. Matijkiw conducted what the Health Department calls an “AFIX” visit, or vaccine inspection, in July 2008. On July 16, 2008, at 1:30 p.m., Matijkiw made a vaccine inspection visit to Gosnell’s clinic. Unlike the inspectors before her, she did not simply stick to her narrow, assigned task of inspecting vaccines and their storage units. She took seriously her broader duty to protect public health. Following her visit to Gosnell’s facility, she reported on a multitude of deficiencies she found.

She noted that the office was “not clean at all, and many areas of the office smell like urine.” She reported a “dark layer of dust” on the baseboards and described the “enormous” fish tanks, filled with murky water. In the refrigerator, she found expired vaccines – one with an expiration date of March 2006, another 2005. The temperature log, which was supposed to record the refrigerator temperature every day, had not been marked since the second day of June – a month and a half earlier. On top of the refrigerator, she found a stack of temperature logs, already filled out, showing readings twice a day, with no initials, time, or month.

On October 7, 2009, Matijkiw returned to the clinic. Again she wrote a scathing report, addressed, again, to her supervisor, Lisa Morgan. In it Matijkiw described a two hour meeting with “(Dr.) O’Neill” (the parentheses were in her original email). During the visit, Matijkiw learned that O’Neill had no understanding of the vaccine program. O’Neill reportedly believed that the free children’s vaccines could be given to adult patients and to those with private insurance. Matijkiw noticed that one of the free vaccines was given to Gosnell’s daughter. A month after Matijkiw’s second visit to the clinic, Mrs. Mongar died. A month after that, in December 2009, a notation in Philadelphia Department of Public Health records stated: “Site will not be enrolled in [the Vaccine for Children program] after Matijkiw’s visits. We will pick up any wasted vaccines in January. Jim is reporting Dr. to state licensing.”

Meanwhile, Gosnell submitted an application to become a National Abortion Federation (NAF) member astonishingly, the day after Karnamaya Mongar died, following her abortion at the clinic. Even on a day when the place had been scrubbed and spiffed up for the visit, the NAF investigator found it disgusting and rejected Gosnell’s application for membership. But despite noting many outright illegalities, including a padlocked emergency exit in a part of the clinic where women were left alone overnight, the grand jury report notes that the NAF inspector did not report any of these violations to authorities:

According to the Grand Jury Report, report, Gosnell, in addition to operating his own clinic in Pennsylvania, worked one day a week at Atlantic Women’s Medical Services in Wilmington, Delaware.
Atlantic was a NAF accredited abortion clinic, so Gosnell was hardly UNDERGROUND like Kohn, suggested. The grand jury report found that he routinely referred women who were too far along in their pregnancy to get an abortion under Delaware law to his West Philadelphia clinic.

Finally, in 2010, Federal drug agents raided Gosnell’s abortion clinic. And it was that raid, which triggered another inspection by health investigators four days later.

They found Gosnell’s abortion clinic was filthy, with fetal remains filling a freezer and clogging drains. He allowed unlicensed employees to give anesthesia, often leaving patients unattended, the report said.

That last inspection triggered the events that led to Gosnell’s arrest:

February 18 raid – RAID

February 22, 2010, the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine suspended Gosnell’s medical license, citing “an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety.”

March 12, 2010 the state Department of Health filed papers to begin the process of shutting down the clinic.

MAY 4, 2010 The Philadelphia District Attorney submitted this case, pertaining to criminal wrongdoing at Gosnell’s clinic, to the Grand Jury on May 4, 2010

No where in the Grand Jury Report, nor Court Documents does it indicate that “Reproductive Rights” activists, as Kohn wrongly asserts ever reported ANYTHING to authorities to force the closure of Gosnell’s abortion clinic.

In fact, there appears to be evidence that in addition to NAF knowing the clinic’s conditions, Planned Parenthood did as well.

Kohn is wrong again when she claims there were repeated exposure by reproductive justice activists and feminist journalists who exposed Gosnell.

Ilyse Hogue, president of NARAL Pro-Choice America told the media, “The American people join me and my organization in being outraged that this man was able to operate for years, preying on poor women who desperately needed safe and clean medical services but were unable to get it because of the restrictions that drove credible and reputable providers and doctors out of business in Pennsylvania and we were the first out of the gate to call attention to this case. And you know why?… It’s because unfortunately as the anti-choicers try and restrict more and more doctors out of business, they are the ones keeping the Kermit Gosnells operating.”

Erik Wemple at the Washington Post must think they are, he responded, “Having done precisely 3,454 Nexis and Internet search on the Gosnell case, we missed the part where NARAL had led a charge to highlight the alleged atrocities in West Philadelphia. So we Nexised again, checking on NARAL’s footprint around the time that Gosnell was indicted in January 2011. Not much there. When asked to provide news releases or other evidence of activism around that time, NARAL didn’t provide anything.”

In February of 2010 WHYY reported that Dayle Steinberg is CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania denied knowing of any of the horrific conditions at Gosnells’ abortion clinic. They wrote:

Steinberg: We do anticipate that women who might have scheduled appointments for abortion procedures at the Women’s Medical Society will be calling Planned Parenthood.

and then reported, “Steinberg says she knows that Gosnell has provided abortions in Philadelphia for many years, but says she hadn’t heard of any problems at clinic until the allegations surfaced in recent days.”

DaylesteinbergDayle Steinberg is CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Steinberg began her association with Planned Parenthood Southeastern Pennsylvania (PPSP) in 1978 as a graduate intern, joined the full-time staff in 1981, served as director of surgical services from 1986-1992, then served for eight years as senior vice president, and was appointed president and CEO in 2001.

PPSEPA2010-affiliate-header-91460

PP LIED

But later, according to Philly.com : Steinberg said this about Gosnell at a public fundraiser:

“Steinberg said that when Gosnell was in practice, women would sometimes come to Planned Parenthood for services after first visiting Gosnell’s West Philadelphia clinic, and would complain to staff about the conditions there.

“’We would always encourage them to report it to the Department of Health,’ Steinberg said as she sat with Steinem before Tuesday’s events.”

PP Lied Gosnell

Next time NAF, NARAL or Planned Parenthood send their spinners like fake “journalist” Sally Kohn to say that Gosnell ran an illegal abortion clinic and it was the abortion rights promoters who screamed for him to be shut down- tell them they are LIARS – because the FACT do not add up to their abortion spin !!!

Lest you think that Sally Kohn’s attempt is the first and only attempt at spinning horrific legal abortion clinic conditions read Pro-choice Wall of Silence or complicity in the War on Women – when abortion injures and kills the women they claim to protect.

Super Bowl ad with John 3:16 rejected by Fox Sports , local minister is outraged !

Posted in Anti-Christian Bigotry, Christian, Church, persecution, Religion with tags , , , , , , , , on February 3, 2011 by saynsumthn

Report by the Ft. Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel :

The 30-second commercial shows football fans in a living room cheering wildly for a quarterback sack. Cut to a close-up of a player’s face. In the black smudge under his eyes it says, “John 3:16.”

The viewer is then directed to the website http://www.lookup316.com.

That’s it. Someone unfamiliar with the Christian Bible might not even get the reference.

The John 3:16 commercial was produced by Fixed Point, a Birmingham, Ala., religious advocacy group, which wanted it aired on Fox Sports during the Super Bowl this Sunday. The Super Bowl broadcast begins at 6:30 p.m. on Fox.

Fox turned down the ad because it contained “religious doctrine,” which is against their policy, said a Fox spokesman.

Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton is taking the rejection in stride, being mobbed by reporters since he put out a press release about what happened. John 3:16 was the lead religion item on HuffingtonPost.com on Monday.

For Christians, John 3:16 contains the essence of their faith: “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

The verse also has been a part of broadcast sports since the mid-1970s. That was when rainbow-wigged Rollen Stewart became a minor celebrity for holding up a card with “John 3:16” on it in the end zone at football games and other major sporting events.

In recent years, others in the stands have held up the John 3:16 sign, but its most famous adherent is Tim Tebow, the University of Florida’s former star quarterback, who wrote Bible verses in his eye black.

The idea came to Fixed Point founder Larry Taunton during last year’s Super Bowl, when he asked himself, “If I had 30 seconds, what would I say to 106 million people?”

The day after last year’s Super Bowl, Taunton called Fox Sports.

“They said they probably wouldn’t air something like that, but they were intrigued and were willing to look at our story boards,” Taunton said.

Two months after receiving the story boards, Fox rejected the ad.

Taunton spent Monday and Tuesday being interviewed by reporters, mostly from religious publications.

“If we can achieve the same cultural dialogue this way, so be it,” Taunton said.

Fixed Point then bought two local TV spots during the Super Bowl in Birmingham and a few other cities. They will not be aired in the South Florida market.

When Boca Raton minister Mark Boykin heard about the rejected ad, he was offended.

“They call themselves ‘fair and balanced.’ They say, ‘We are a Christian nation.’ That’s their mantra,” said Boykin, who heads the Church of All Nations in Boca Raton. “If you’re going to have that moniker, you’d better stand behind it.”

Instead of turning the other cheek, Boykin went on offense.

He launched a letter-writing campaign on Tuesday after he heard that Fox had refused to air the John 3:16 commercial. The same Fox network that turned down the John 3:16 commercial allowed celebrities to use the F-word and the S-word — unbleeped — at the 2002 and 2003 broadcasts of the Billboard Music Awards show, which was watched by more than a million young people, Boykin said.

“I don’t see how we can give them a free pass on this,” Boykin said. “They’re counting on Christians being reticent and docile, but this one we are not going to let go.”

Since advertisers compete to produce Super Bowl ads that get people talking, Taunton said it is possible that the John 3:16 ad just wasn’t racy enough.

“Maybe if we had a girl in a bikini holding up a John 3:16 sign in one hand and a beer in the other, they would like it,” he said, laughing.
