An unannounced inspection by state health investigators which resulted in the suspension of a South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility this past summer also revealed how aborted babies were stored in a biohazard freezer. The horrific details, captured in a SC state health inspection report are eerily similar to those captured by the Center for Medical Progress while undercover at a Houston Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

In that video, Center for Medical Progress (CMP) “buyers” were taken into Planned Parenthood’s back pathology room where they ask to view any “fresh specimens” i.e. aborted babies. With a BIG smile on her face, the Planned Parenthood assistant told CMP, “We had a really long day and they are all mixed up in a bag,” she states as she giggles. And then they tell CMP that they keep the “specimens” frozen.

SC Inspection Planned Parenthood fetal tissue

The inspection report from the State of South Carolina lays out a similar system where aborted children are kept in a freezer at a Planned Parenthood in Columbia. The gruesome details are documented in the August 31,2015 on site inspection the Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing performed at Planned Parenthood of South Atlantic on Middleburg Drive.

Planned Parenthood south carolina

The unannounced inspection at the Columbia Planned Parenthood was requested by Governor Nikki Haley and conducted by the South Carolina’s Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Bureau of Health Facilities Licensing and Bureau of Land and Waste Management to determine compliance with state laws.

During the walk through of the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic investigators identified two locations where biohazard waste was stored. The first one, although it contained bio-hazardous waste, did not contain any fetal tissue. But, when inspectors asked if there were any other places where “POC’s” or products of conception were kept, Planned Parenthood staff replied, “Yes, in the POC room in the freezer.”

South Carolina Planned Parenthood abortion freezer inspection fetal tissue

According to the document obtained by Saynsumthn, inspectors followed the Planned Parenthood staff in the “POC room” and opened the “upright freezer which had a biohazard sticker in the top right hand corner.” Inside the freezer were several metal shelves lined with blue disposable pads. One shelf had a large red plastic biohazard bag that was tied with numerous (in excess of 20) smaller red plastic bags, the report stated.

Planned Parenthood staffers told inspectors that “individual products of conception” or as pro-lifers rightly describe them, aborted preborn children, are placed in a smaller red biohazard bag after examination by the physician i.e. abortionist. They are then placed in the large bag in the freezer, the inspection report notes.

Inspectors then asked Planned Parenthood staffers what the next step would be for the “fetal tissue” or preborn aborted children in the freezer. Abortion clinic staffers told inspectors that on the day of “medical waste” “pick up” that the large bag would be placed in a cardboard box in the “biohazard room” and sealed and labeled where a manifest would be generated. It would then be passed off to the “transporter” or the medical waste pick up company.

The storing of aborted children in freezers until they can be “transported” was also described in detail by Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast when, in an unprecedented move CMP undercover investigators were able to film what takes place in these “POC labs.” A transcript of an April 9, 2015 conversation CMP had with Melissa Farrell, Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast read in part:

    “After the physician has confirmed the tissue correlates with gestational age, tissue is placed in a biohazard container and gets discarded into a single container and then is placed in the freezer. Anything after 16 weeks is immediately placed in the freezer after the procedure. And it is all sent away once a week for incineration. So that’s kind of the scope.”

In another portion of the conversation the Planned Parenthood staffer told CMP:

    “Under a sample acquisition protocol where everyone that’s coming in gets approached, not just African-American or whatever, everyone gets approached about donating fetal tissue, maybe we can even think, and I recognize that a lot of this has to be fresh, but maybe even banking, a tissue banking part, that we have it built into the consent form-protocol-in the event that you don’t have a use-first trimester, you don’t have a use for it currently, you saw the refrigerator freezer space we have, we have plenty of space. We can store it, and then if you have a need, because some researchers start with frozen specimens or preserved specimens first, we could look at doing that as well.”

Planned Parenthood inspection Jenny Black

The storing of aborted babies inside freezers, as creepy as it sounds, does not appear to be a violation of health laws.

However, in addition to the way the Columbia, South Carolina Planned Parenthood stored the aborted fetuses, the document did list a host of health violations found by the South Carolina State Health Inspectors and detailed them in a September 11, 2015 letter addressed to Planned Parenthood CEO Jenny Black.

Those violations include the following:

    Documentation on personal background information on 2 staff members was not available for review.
    The facility did not have documentation on training in infection control for 2 staff members.
    The facility did not comply with a provision of the Women’s Right to Know Act…In 5 of 25 medical records reviewed, the record documented that an abortion was performed sooner than the required 60 minutes after an ultrasound.
    Planned Parenthood did not adhere to and follow provisions for tissue examination and disposal and did not have a written policy and procedure regarding registration of fetal death or death certificates.
    Planned Parenthood’s emergency drug cart did not have a listing of contents on the cart.
    Expired medications were stored in the patient care areas and pharmacy.
    Products of conception resulting from abortion procedures were not managed and properly disposed of by incineration according to regulations.
    Several abortion records involving minors did not include the names of their mother or father.
    In 25 out of 25 of the medical records reviewed by inspectors, the names of clinical assistants in attendance during abortion procedures was not documented in the record.
    In 4 of the 25 medical records reviewed, abortions were not reported to the Office of Vital Records within the required 7 days but were reported between 13 and 33 days. And in one of the records reviewed, the record did not document that the abortion was reported at all.
    Sterile gloves were stored and mixed with non-sterile supplies including non-sterile examination gloves .
    Waste meeting the definition of “infectious waste” was not managed and properly disposed of by incineration.

Planned Parenthood COuth Atlantic abortion clinic suspended

State officials then suspended the license of the South Carolina Planned Parenthood facility. Despite previous claims from CEO Jenny Black that monetary penalties were not issued, the documents shows that Planned Parenthood was fined $7500.00 and ordered to submit a plan of correction.

According to the Island Packet:

    Planned Parenthood paid a $7,500 penalty for 21 cited violations and submitted correction plans by the Sept. 28 deadline but asked DHEC to reconsider some of the violations, putting the suspension on hold…DHEC cleared Planned Parenthood’s Columbia clinic on Nov. 6, and the organization withdrew its request, Department of Health and Environmental Control Director Catherine Heigel said.

Houston Planned Parenthood responds to vid as ambulance takes patient from abortion center

A Houston pro-life group is reporting that on the same day that the Center for Medical Progress released video of a Houston Planned Parenthood employee calling babies they harvest for organs “intact fetal cadavers” an ambulance was summoned to the abortion clinic.

Although there is no confirmation that the emergency call was to assist an abortion patient, as yesterday’s videos indicted, a major part of the clinic’s business is abortion.

Aug-2015-Ambulance-PP-Houston

Writing on their Facebook page Houston Coalition for Life states:

    A patient on a gurney was rushed away from the Planned Parenthood of the Gulf Coast this afternoon! This is the10th Ambulance we have seen in 2015! Considering IV in progress and the track record of 911 calls we have heard thus far from this facility, it is highly likely the patient was suffering from a botched abortion! Please pray for all who were involved!

These emergency calls are not knew.

Earlier this year, pro-lifers documented four ambulance calls over a 30 day period to Houston’s Planned Parenthood mega center.

Houston-Planned-Parenthood-intact-fetus-abortion

Yesterday, The Center for Medical Progress released another video showing Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, at the abortion-clinic headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, Texas.

Farrell admitted to what she thought were “buyers” of baby organs that six of the abortion facility’s doctors abort babies beyond 16 weeks.

She also suggested that the clinic altered the abortion procedure to get “intact specimens” otherwise known as human unborn babies.

Perhaps the most horrific part of the video was when CMP investigators were taken back to Planned Parenthood’s pathology lab where an assistant took aborted babies from a freezer.

Planned-Parenthood-Gulf-Coast-freezer

Ben Johnson over at LifeSite News described the interaction:

    The last several minutes of the video again shows graphic footage of the investigators inside the laboratories of the Houston abortion facility, combing through the body parts of a 20-week-old baby.

    “It was a twin,” an employee says as she retrieves the remains from the refrigerator.

    Clearly developed hands and feet are seen in the dish, as the investigator pulls out a lung with a pair of tweezers.

On their website, PPGC brags about about the facility having dry ice and freezers:

    Dedicated Research exam room with colposcope, digital scale, ECG and Ethernet
    Coordinator offices with restricted/locked access, fax machine, computer access with multiple data jacks, ample cabinet space for paper CRFs, ambient drug storage locker
    Laboratory with dry ice, multiple centrifuges, microscopes, refrigerators and freezers
    Office space for Monitors which include data jacks
    Space sufficient for group enrollment
    On-site document archive facilities

Planned-Parenthood-Gulf-Coast-freezers

In addition: they mention, “Donated Fetal Tissue” under the headline: Expertise:

PPGC-Fetal-Tissue

Responding to the taped footage, Melaney A. Linton, President & CEO of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast released a statement which reads in part:

    “The footage released today doesn’t show Planned Parenthood staff engaged in any wrongdoing or agreeing to violate any legal or medical standards. Instead, the latest tape shows an extremely offensive intrusion and lack of respect for women, with footage of medical tissue in a lab. These extremists show a total lack of compassion and dignity for women’s most personal medical decisions.

    PPGC Statement

    “The video released today will be difficult for many people to see. Medical procedures and medical research are often difficult to watch. The video shows a Planned Parenthood staff member with an actor posing as a medical researcher handling fetal tissue in a lab. It is standard medical practice to review tissue to ensure the health and safety of patients, and this tissue was being examined and handled under the false pretense of a standard laboratory site visit for people purportedly conducting qualified medical research.”

Center-for-Medical-Progress-YouTube-content-warning

The video, which includes the graphic images of Planned Parenthood’s aborted children, has been viewed almost half a million times so far with YouTube now adding a content warning before it to be viewed.

CMP’s lead investigator, David Daleiden, was on Fox with Sean Hannity last night to discuss the latest video.

Hannity-David-Daleidon-CMP-Planned-Parenthood

Daleiden told Hannity that the procedure being used could be causing babies to be born alive.

Calling born alive infants the “dirty little secret of the abortion industry,” Daleiden told Hannity, that “Whenever we’re talking about fetal tissue harvesting,m we’re talking about cases where no feticide and no digoxin, no poison was used. And, if at the same time you’re trying to get those fetuses out as intact as possible, you’re creating a perfect storm for for there to be born alive infants.” he said.

He said there are 7 more videos yet to be released!

PPHouston

The Center for Medical Progress has released a 5th video showing the nation’s largest Planned Parenthood abortion facility offering intact fetal cadavers which they refer to as “specimens.”

Center for Medical Progress, posing as buyers for a Biotech company sat with the Director of Research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, at the abortion-clinic headquarters of Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast in Houston, Texas.

Our organization has been doing research for many many many years,” Farrell tells CMP.

At issue is whether Planned Parenthood is violating federal law in selling aborted baby body parts and altering the abortion procedures to do so.

Deviate-from-our-standard-PP-300x170

We deviate from our standard to do that,” Planned Parenthood’s Director of Research says in the video.

Adding that the procedure is “generally standard” but admitting “I’m saying standard loosely.”

She also admits that six of the abortion facility’s doctors abort babies beyond 16 weeks and the “doctors” also do “research.”

6-abortionists-go-beyond-16-weeks-Planned-Parenthood-300x170

Asked if Planned Parenthood can alter or adjust the procedure to get the specific organ or tissue needed, the Planned Parenthood employee repeatedly replies yes.

Even agreeing to 18-20 week “specimens” that are “intact‘ meaning babies that are delivered or aborted whole.

Alter-process-intact-fetal-cadavers-Planned-Parenthood

“We’re going to potentially have some that will be more or less intact and then some that will not be,” Farrell says.

Yeah if we alter our process and we are able to obtain intact fetal cadavers, then we can make it part of the budget that any dissections are this, and splitting the specimens into different shipments is this, I mean- that’s- it’s all just a matter of line items.”

Melissa-Farrell-Planned-Parenthood-300x169

Farrell also indicates to the investigators over lunch that the specimen sales from her department contribute significantly to Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast’s overall finances: “I think everyone realizes, especially because my department contributes so much to the bottom line of our organization here, you know we’re one of the largest affiliates, our Research Department is the largest in the United States. Larger than any the other affiliates’ combined.

TEXAS INVESTIGATION

The Texas governor has ordered an investigation into Planned Parenthood and recently a hearing on the matter was conducted in the state.

During the hearing, the state’s attorney general testified their investigators saw fingers and toes in “POC Room”:

ken-paxton-20110524662_40ca90a729_h-300x200

    “Our investigators are working across Texas to gather information and evidence relevant to the case. Last week, after a meeting at a Houston Planned Parenthood clinic, officials there invited our team to take a look around, including a stop at what they call the ‘POC Room.’ POC stands for ‘Products of Conception.’ There, lab technicians receive the remains of aborted children – also known as ‘the products’ – which are washed, examined, bagged, refrigerated, accumulated and every week taken away by a contractor that burns their bodies as medical waste.”

    “As my staffers watched, a technician took an aborted child from a jar, rinsed it in a colander, and placed the body parts in a tray. Fingers and toes, exceptionally tiny but fully-formed, were clearly visible. The remains were eventually deposited in a red plastic bag, about the size of an average grocery sack. According to the people at the facility, they average at least 260 pounds of “medical waste” a week, every week.”

In 2013, Life Dynamics interviewed former employees from a Houston abortion facility unrelated to Planned Parenthood.

The abortion workers claimed the doctor would sometimes abort babies that would come out alive.

A partial transcript from the interview read as follows:

    Clinic Worker: “ Most of the time we would see him where the fetus would come completely out and of course the fetus would still be alive because it was still moving, of course, you could see the stomach breathing and um that’s when he would do his um, he would snip the spine, as they were saying this doctor did and of course the soft spot was one of the spots that he um would take one of the forceps, or what is it called? The dilators and stick it down the soft spot of the fetuses head.”

    Interviewer: “You saw this happen?”

    Clinic Worker: “Oh yes. I think every morning I saw on several occasions. If we had um, if we had 20 something patients, of course maybe 10 or 12, or 13 or 15 would be large procedures – out of those large procedures I’m pretty sure I was seeing 3 to 4 fetus that were completely delivered in some way or another.”

PLANNED PARENTHOOD PATHOLOGY ROOM

In the Center for Medical Progress video, CMP “buyers” are taken into Planned Parenthood’s back pathology room where they ask to view any fresh specimens i.e. aborted babies.

With a BIG smile on her face, the Planned Parenthood assistant says, “We had a really long day and they are all mixed up in a bag,” she states as she giggles.

Babies-come-out-really-intact-Planned-Parenthood-300x171

They then ask for a look anyway and a Planned Parenthood worker tells them, “It varies on gestation, sometimes they come out really intact.”

They tell CMP that they keep the “specimens” frozen.

basemen-sealed-up-Planned-Parnethood

The disturbing images of Planned Parenthood poking through the remains if unborn children are horrific as they brag that their tiny organs come out “really really well.

Stating they get “40 to 50 easy” babies per month that are 16-22 weeks.

In addition, the employees discuss how Planned Parenthood Federation of America is “moving away from a standardized policy” regarding fetal tissue donation because PPFA is, “encouraging more participation but they don’t want to get too into the mix of it,” they say.

Earlier this week, a vote in the Senate to defund Planned Parenthood failed to reach the needed 60 votes to move the bill forward. The abortion baby parts business receives half a billion dollars in federal tax money each year.

A death after abortion at suspended medic’s clinic

2/24/2010 By Marie McCullough and Sam Wood

Philadelphia Inquirer Staff Writers

Damber Ghalley remembers seeing his unconscious sister on an ambulance stretcher, being taken out the back door of the West Philadelphia clinic where she had undergone an abortion.
Ghalley and his niece – the woman’s daughter – were stunned.

“I asked the doctor, ‘What happened?’ ” Ghalley recalled yesterday during a phone interview. “He said: ‘Her heart stopped. The procedure went well, but her heart stopped.’ ”

Ghalley’s sister, Karnamaya Mongar, 41, developed a fatal heart arrhythmia after being given painkillers and other drugs at the clinic at 3801 Lancaster Ave., which is owned and run by Kermit B. Gosnell, according to a state order suspending his medical license.

The suspension, issued Monday by the state Board of Medicine, followed a raid of the clinic by federal and state drug agents who are investigating Gosnell, 69, on suspicion of illegal distribution of prescription painkillers. Drug Enforcement Administration spokesman Brian Dougherty said yesterday that he could not comment.

The suspension order describes “deplorable and unsanitary” conditions such as “blood on the floor and parts of aborted fetuses in jars.” It also says an employee with no medical license routinely dispensed prescription drugs and performed medical exams while Gosnell was out of the clinic.

The suspension is the latest trouble for Gosnell, who has been named as a defendant in 46 civil suits – 10 of them medical-malpractice cases – since 1981.

Calls placed to Gosnell’s home and office yesterday went unanswered.

The clinic – a block away from Penn Presbyterian Medical Center – has big black letters proclaiming dental care, family practice, geriatrics, and physical therapy, but the order suspending Gosnell’s license says it “specializes in abortions and pain management.”

The unlicensed employee, according to the order, gave Mongar a round of painkillers Nov. 20, then called Gosnell because the patient was still experiencing severe cramping from drugs to induce labor. Gosnell directed that another round of drugs be administered. After he arrived at the clinic to perform the abortion, Mongar was given yet more medication.

Ghalley says he was told nothing as he sat in the waiting room with his 21-year-old niece, Yashoda Mongar.

Ghalley explained that his sister; her husband, Ash; and their three children were living with him in Woodbridge, Va., a suburb of Washington. They had arrived in the United States only five months earlier from their native Bhutan, a poor, mountainous, landlocked nation between China and India.

Ghalley, who has been in the United States for a decade and speaks English fluently, became their interpreter, guide, and chauffeur.

He did not question his sister when she asked him to drive her to an abortion clinic in Virginia.

“In our culture, they [the couple] cannot talk about it with relatives,” Ghalley said. “She was depressed. I figured she has three children, she has grandkids also, maybe she did not want another child.”

Because Mongar was more than 12 weeks pregnant, the Virginia abortion clinic referred her to one in Maryland.

“They didn’t want to do it either,” Ghalley said. “They gave the name of the Philadelphia clinic.”

Mongar was about 18 or 19 weeks pregnant on that November night, Ghalley said. Her husband could not accompany her because “he just got a job in a chicken factory.”

Ghalley’s first impression of the Philadelphia facility – a shabby, three-story brick structure with a two-story annex – was not good.

“So dirty. Dirty, bloody, a lot of people waiting,” Ghalley recalled. “I was thinking at that time, maybe he [the doctor] was cheaper.”

Later, as Ghalley watched his sister being put in the ambulance, a clinic employee and his niece began crying.

“I was crying, too,” Ghalley said. “There was no other disease. My sister was fine before that.”

All through the night and half the next day, Ghalley and his niece waited at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where Mongar was put on life support.

“They got her heart beating,” he said. “I was hoping. I was praying. In the morning, I saw [Gosnell] and asked him if something went wrong.”

Gosnell’s answer was reassuring, and Mongar’s family decided that her death was “in God’s hands,” Ghalley said.

This is not the first time Pennsylvania has suspended Gosnell’s license. In 1996, he temporarily lost it for allowing a physician’s assistant to treat patients. He got it back after paying a $1,000 penalty.

This time, however, the violation is more egregious.

“In this case, the worker had absolutely no medical training or license whatsoever,” said Basil Merenda, state commissioner of professional and occupational affairs.

Gosnell also skirted the state’s abortion control in 2007 when he performed an abortion on a minor without her parents’ consent. It became public when the parents brought a civil suit for assault. Gosnell paid $10,000 to settle the case.

Ghalley said he was still waiting for the autopsy report on his sister. He was not aware that Gosnell’s license had been suspended.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for telling me,” Ghalley said.

Trail of lawsuits follows doc in Pa. abortion raid
By JOANN LOVIGLIO
The Associated Press
February 24, 2010; 12:46 PM

PHILADELPHIA — A Philadelphia doctor who ran a clinic where abortions were performed has been a target of lawsuits including at least one charging that a woman died from a botched abortion.

Dr. Kermit Gosnell‘s license was suspended after investigators found blood on the floor, fetus parts in jars and a recovery area consisting of recliners.

Gosnell is named in nearly four dozen lawsuits going back 20 years. Ten are malpractice suits, including one by the family of a young woman who died after a March 2000 abortion at his office.

Court documents say Semika Shirelle Shaw called the office the next day because she was bleeding badly but wasn’t told to get checked there or at a hospital.

Her family’s attorney said they can’t comment because of a confidentiality agreement that was part of the settlement.

Gosnell’s number is unlisted and calls to the clinic have gone unanswered.

___________________________________________

Case in point – When this Planned Parenthood CEO was interviewed her remarks were not a CRY for INVESTIGATIONS of ALL SLEEZY abortion doctors…NO NO – she was assuring the press that women who cannot go to this DOC will be calling Planned Parenthood. Translation , “BIG BUCKS ” for them !

Dayle Steinberg is CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania, she says the Philadelphia region has too few abortion providers.

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.

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.

What Steinberg is saying are the typical pro-choice “talking points” when confronted with a DEAD abortion patient. But is it true?

The Associated Press reported that Gosnell, 69, is named in nearly four dozen lawsuits going back 20 years. ( HARDLY the clean slate Planned Parenthood said he had) continuing with AP, Ten are malpractice suits, including one by the family of a young woman who died after a March 2000 abortion at his West Philadelphia clinic.

Semika Shirelle Shaw called the office the day after her abortion because she was bleeding badly but wasn’t told to get checked there or at a hospital, according to court documents. The lawsuit alleged that Shaw, a 22-year-old mother of two, died two days later of a perforated uterus and sepsis.

The attorney who represented Shaw’s family, Samuel J. Pace Jr., said neither he nor they could discuss the case because of a confidentiality agreement included in the settlement reached about two years after Shaw’s death.

In the order suspending Gosnell’s medical license, state officials cited the case of a woman who died Nov. 20 after being given two rounds of painkillers followed by additional medication just before an abortion was performed.

The woman, who was not identified in the Pennsylvania Department of State document, was identified by The Philadelphia Inquirer as 41-year-old Karnamaya Mongar. Her brother, Dambher Ghalley, told the paper the facility was “dirty, bloody” and that his sister died after being rushed to a hospital. ( GEE…And Planned Parenthood is upset there are too “few” of these places in Pannsylvania – hmmm)

Abortionist Gosnell, was labeled by state authorities as “an immediate and clear danger to the public” and his clinic was described as “deplorable and unsanitary.

Regulators said unlicensed employees (Where will these employees go now that this butcher shop is closed? any guesses?) were left alone to administer prescription medications and perform gynecological exams during the day, and Gosnell typically did not arrive at the clinic until between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m.

Drug Enforcement Administration and FBI agents raided Gosnell’s clinic, Women’s Medical Society, last week. Officials from both agencies have declined to comment.

The National Abortion Federation, an accrediting and standard-setting body for abortion providers, said the Women’s Medical Society wasn’t accredited.

(What a crock ! NAF has had PLENTY of “ACCREDITED” abortion clinic members shut down for unsanitary conditions and has a list of abortion clinic deaths – but alas – the new media gives them a pass. No INvestigations to see if NAF is correct – no no …had there been an abortion doc killed- the media would buzz like flies on google, court records, and websites to validate or disprove this claim. But since this was “JUST” a woman, the media allows NAF who profits from abortion to spew these lies )

“There are places that operate in low-income areas and prey on low-income women, students, immigrant populations who may not even know that abortion is legal in this country,” said Vicki Saporta, the group’s president. “Women need to know that there’s no reason, no matter their socioeconomic status, for them not to have access to the highest quality care.” (GIVE ME A BREAK! )

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, Dana Haynes, of North Philadelphia, filed a civil lawsuit against Gosnell in September 2008.

According to court documents, Haynes alleges that Gosnell lacerated her uterus, cervix and small bowel when he performed an abortion on her on Nov. 11, 2006.

The lawsuit alleges that Gosnell made her wait for four hours while she bled and suffered pain before calling an ambulance and that he placed her “life in jeopardy in order to cover up his own negligence.”

Haynes endured numerous surgeries after the abortion, including one to remove remains of the aborted fetus that Gosnell apparently left inside her, according to the lawsuit.
She claims that the botched abortion left her unable to get pregnant.

Two other women who contacted the Daily News earlier this week said they also suffered botched abortions at Gosnell’s hands and successfully sued him. At least 46 civil lawsuits have been filed against Gosnell in Philadelphia over the years, although not all were related to medical malpractice.

State: West Phila. doctor’s practice ‘deplorable
By John Shiffman, Sam Wood, and Marie McCullough

2/22/2010

State authorities last night suspended the medical license of a West Philadelphia doctor whose practice was raided last week by federal drug agents.

The suspension came after a hours-long search of Kermit B. Gosnell’s practice, Women’s Medical Society, at 3801 Lancaster Ave. in Powelton Village.

The suspension order says the conditions of the clinic were “deplorable and unsanitary.”

It states: “There was blood on the floor, and parts of aborted fetuses were displayed in jars.”

The order calls Gosnell’s continued practice of medicine “an immediate and clear danger to the public health and safety.”

Calls to Gosnell at his clinic were not answered last night.

On Thursday, FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration agents executed a search warrant at the clinic, state officials said.

FBI spokesman J.J. Klaver last night declined to elaborate on the FBI-DEA investigation or to confirm that Gosnell was a subject of the probe.

Law enforcement sources, however, said the FBI, DEA, and state drug agents who executed the search warrant had been investigating Gosnell, who is in his late 60s, on suspicion of illegal distribution of prescription painkillers.

During the search, the sources said, DEA and FBI agents discovered evidence that triggered a call to state authorities, who regulate Pennsylvania’s abortion laws.

The suspension order also alleges that on or about Nov. 20, a patient died after being treated at the clinic by an unlicensed employee.

The woman, who was not named and was in the clinic for an abortion, was given 10 mg of Demerol and 12.5 mg of promethazine. When the patient began experiencing cramping, she asked for more pain medication, and Gosnell told the unlicensed employee to administer it, the order states.

The woman allegedly was given 75 mg of Demerol, 12.5 mg of promethazine, and 10 mg of diazepam, and later more anesthetic in preparation for the abortion.

After the abortion, the order states, the woman “started to have arrhythmia and then went into V-fib” (ventricular fibrillation). She was taken to an unnamed hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Last night, a Philadelphia police officer outside Gosnell’s office said the doctor and staff were in the office talking to authorities. They did not comment.

The office, which also bears the name Family Medical Society, is a block from Presbyterian Medical Center.

It is a three-story brick structure with a two-story annex. On the front is a silhouette of a man and woman holding hands with a child, the symbol of the practice.

The practice includes dental, family planning, family practice, geriatrics, and physical therapy, according to a list on the front of the building.
