According to a Texas abortion doctor, they need to reverse restrictions on voting rights, because the state has defunded Planned Parenthood and passed safety regulations on abortion clinics.

Dr. Sherwood C. Lynn, who performs abortions at the Whole Women’s Health abortion clinic chain in Texas told Cosmopolitan that, “We’re one of the states who declined Medicaid expansion and defunded Planned Parenthood. If more clinics shut down in September, there are only going to be six clinics left in Texas. In order to change this, we’re going to have to get the Democratic electorate out to vote. We’re going to have to reverse restrictions on voting rights. Lawmakers are catering to a group of crazies. There is no regard for science or for women.”

Exactly what does this abortionist mean by reverse restrictions on voting rights anyway? Is this the extreme that these people will take us if we do not allow them to kill unborn children?

Abortion clinics in the state have closed at a rapid pace over the past year since the passage of HB2, a law that requires clinics to become ambulatory surgical centers and doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges close by. The abortion industry says they cannot afford to make the changes required for the safety of the women they serve, so instead they have chosen to close.

Whole Womens Health along with other abortion providers in the state have filed a lawsuit to challenge the law. It is expected to be heard before the Supreme Court. While they await the high court’s decision to take the case, the Fifth Circuit has just decided that the law can be enforced.

The Fifth Circuit’s ruling on October 2 immediately allowed the state’s requirement that every facility offering abortion meet the same building requirements as hospital-style surgery centers to go into effect immediately.

A previous challenge to the law regarding the requirement that abortion doctors have admitting privileges has been upheld upheld by a panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and now the plaintiffs await a decision on whether the full appeals court will rehear the case.

So. the abortion industry is in an all out panic claiming that women will die because they cannot access abortions. Several counties in the state are now completely abortion clinic free and the industry has laid the fault at the feet of pro-lifers.

But, as blogger Jill Stanek has pointed out, the largest chain of abortion clinics in the country is not building new mega centers in the areas that the industry claims is in the most need for abortion services – they are building them in major metropolitan communities, such as Houston which just recently called an ambulance to transport a patient from their abortion center.

In Texas, where there is now a dearth of abortion clinics thanks to pro-life legislation, Planned Parenthood is building two new clinics in Dallas and San Antonio – where two of the state’s last three independent clinics already exist (if and when the law takes full effect). The other five that are anticipated to remain standing all belong to Planned Parenthood,” Stanek writes on her blog.

In addition to the ambulatory requirements, abortionists say that they have a difficult time getting hospital privileges.

When HB2 passed requiring hospital admitting privileges by abortion workers, pro-lifers were ecstatic. They knew that hospitals were leery of accepting abortion doctors on staff.

In response, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton Texas, contacted members of the Texas medical community to warn them that the abortion lobby would try to recruit doctors who work at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics explains, “What we did is created a post card called Hired Killers. This postcard is designed to discourage doctors from getting involved in abortion. We sent one of these to every doctor’s office in Texas. What we are trying to do is keep the waters stirred because what the abortion industry wants is to recruit these guys and tell them, you can just slide in and you don’t have to raise a big ruckus about it. We’re making sure that these doctors understand, there will be a ruckus and this is just the first shot of the ruckus that’s coming.

The second thing we did was send a letter to every hospital administrator in Texas,” Crutcher explains,”It’s designed to discourage them from granting privileges and be on the lookout for new doctors filing for hospital privileges who are not telling them they are working in an abortion clinic. Before you let them in, you better ask them if they are working in abortion because you don’t want to drag this hospital into the abortion controversy.”

The campaign appears to be working as expressed again by abortion doctor Sherwood Lynn.

“Gaining admitting privileges has been difficult for me. First, you have to call the hospital and ask for an application. Then they send it to you, and you fill it out and send back. It seems simple enough, but if the address of the practice on the application is of an abortion provider or clinic, they won’t send you the package of materials required. You just can’t apply. I have one application pending in Austin, and I’ve been denied applications in McAllen and Beaumont. Whole Woman’s Health followed up to find out why, but we only got a letter from McAllen without any explanation. [There was no response from Beaumont.] There is no one in the Valley who has privileges who provides abortion care. The hospitals in McAllen are not necessarily Catholic institutions, but the board members are. I do have privileges at one of the hospitals in San Antonio, however, which is how I can continue to provide services at the Whole Woman’s Health [abortion clinic] surgical ambulatory center,”~ Abortionist Sherwood C. Lynn told Cosmo.

NBC’s medical expert: make sure doctors have hospital admitting privileges

The news has been a buzz about the hospitalization of actor/ comedian Joan Rivers. Apparently Ms Rivers was undergoing a simple surgery when she was taken to the hospital because she was not breathing.

In response, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, NBC News’ chief medical editor, discussed the risks of surgery, major or minor on The Today Show:

Nancy Sniderman

Sometimes, the medicine used to sedate someone. The age of which someone is receiving he medications, and sometimes just putting the scope down can trigger and event where a person stops breathing…”, Dr. Nancy Snyderman said, “The really important thing here is that every time you think your are going to have surgery NO MATTER HOW MINOR [ emphasis mine] you have to constantly remind yourself that these things are rare – they can happen. And one more thing I should say, make sure YOUR DOCTOR HAS ADMITTING PRIVILEGES TO THE LOCAL HOSPITAL, because in this case in may well have saved Joan Rivers’ life.”

Watch here:

CONTRADICTION:

Well…isn’t that interesting. Joan Rivers’ doctor having hospital admitting privileges may have saved her life but…when a woman has an abortion we are not to expect the same level of care?

As you know the state of Texas and others states around the nation have passed laws requiring abortion doctors to have Hospital admitting privileges within a close range of the abortion clinics they operate. This is in part, because many abortionists fly-in and are not even from the same state where they perform the surgeries.

Yet- Planned Parenthood and all abortion providers are saying that these laws are “extreme.” A direct result is that abortion clinics are closing in states like Texas because the clinics do not employ doctors who can take care of women if they have to be hospitalized.

In light of this controversy, lets re-read Dr. Nancy Snyderman’s warning, “The really important thing here is that every time you think your are going to have surgery NO MATTER HOW MINOR [ emphasis mine] you have to constantly remind yourself that these things are rare – they can happen. And one more thing I should say, make sure YOUR DOCTOR HAS ADMITTING PRIVILEGES TO THE LOCAL HOSPITAL, because in this case in may well have saved Joan Rivers’ life.

So, I have to wonder..why is it that the pro-abortion left believes that some women deserve protection from the risks of surgery and others do not? After all, after learning that a doctor having privileges at a local hospital may have saved Joan Rivers’ life, requiring abortion doctors to have hospital admitting privileges doesn’t sound so extreme to me.

Hospital did not want relationship with Planned Parenthood says doctor

Planned Parenthood Federation of America, and Planned Parenthood Southeast, have filed a lawsuit challenging a state law that places restrictions on abortion providers and would force most of the state’s clinics to stop providing abortions.

In testimony against the stricter legislation on abortion in Alabama, a medical director of Planned Parenthood Southeast’s clinics in Birmingham and Mobile, told the media that she previously had admitting privileges while a faculty member at the University of Alabama School of Medicine, but said conversations with UAB officials made it clear she would not be able to get those privileges again.

They did not want a relationship with Planned Parenthood at all,” said Roe. “They did not want the political controversies that come with having a relationship with Planned Parenthood.

The media went to great lengths to shield the name of this Planned Parenthood doctor, but, if I was to guess, I would guess Tamer Middleton as the one who possibly made this claim that hospitals did not want a relationship with Planned Parenthood.

The doctor giving testimony referred to only as “Roe” in the article allegedly testified behind a black curtain, and said they had never had an abortion patient transferred to a hospital by stretcher.

On cross-examination of Roe, Assistant Attorney General Margaret Fleming questioned Roe about an incident that occurred late last year, where two employees of Planned Parenthood’s Birmingham office were found to be selling abortion drugs in the parking lot of the facility. Planned Parenthood has closed the facility and, with the exception of Roe, fired the staff; Planned Parenthood Southeast CEO Staci Fox testified earlier this week that she expected the facility to reopen within a month. The Birmingham clinic of Planned Parenthood Southeast ceased operations in January.

Fleming asked Roe if the clinic had followed up with patients following the closing of the facility in January, saying there was no documentation of follow-up calls to patients in the medical records of the facility. Fleming also said that the staff delegated to make the phone calls had been dismissed.

Roe said the clinic did do the follow ups. “It was not documented, but the calls were made,” she said.

Fleming also questioned whether the clinic’s back-up physician had a substantial role in the clinic, citing Roe’s earlier testimony that she would refer patients experiencing complications to a hospital. Roe said she made those judgments on a case-by-case basis.

Fleming also pressed Roe on whether the Birmingham clinic was in compliance with Alabama Department of Public Health regulations that require physicians performing abortions to contact emergency room doctors when patients are admitted with complications. Roe said the clinic “facilitates and complies” with physicians in treatment.

Your own protocol is inconsistent with the rules of the Alabama Department of Public Health in this case,” Fleming said.

Yes, ma’am,” Roe replied.

On redirect questioning, Roe said that the ADPH had never complained to the clinic about its current policies, and that they would change them if so directed.

According to a report by Operation Rescue, Planned Parenthood abortionist Tamer Middleton is a “fly-in” abortionist who is known to work at abortion clinics in predominately Black neighborhoods, including Planned Parenthood in Mobile, Alabama, and a Feminist Women’s Health Center in Atlanta, Georgia, where late-term abortions are done. Ironically, medical licensing sites list her “specialty” as “Family Medicine.”

Middleton, who is a regular blogger on the pro-abortion RH Reality Check Blog, is based in Georgia, travels to Virginia Beach to abort babies then leaves the state, providing no continuity of care to women suffering from complications from abortions.

In 2009, TAMER MIDDLETON worked alongside now jailed abortionist Tyrone Malloy.

Malloy was recently convicted of Medicaid fraud and will be serving years in prison.

On Friday March 21, 2014, following a guilty verdict by a jury, DeKalb Superior Court Judge C. J. Becker sentenced Malloy to four years in prison and six years probation on two counts of Medicaid Fraud.

Malloy was the owner of Old National Gynecology abortion clinic which performed first-trimester abortions. According to authorities, for several years, Malloy engaged in a scheme to defraud Georgia Medicaid by billing for office visits associated with abortions and for ultrasound procedures which were never performed. In total, he fraudulently billed Georgia Medicaid for over $386,000.

Tyrone Malloy

In a press release, the Attorney General,explained that Federal funds may not be used to pay for abortions and services associated with abortions, except in circumstances under which the pregnancy is a result of rape or incest or circumstances under which continuation of the pregnancy would endanger the life of the mother. The Georgia Medicaid program is supported by state and federal tax dollars.

So…in summary, it is apparent that some of the so-called “trustworthy” abortion doctors are not as perfect as the media paints them to be….like Malloy – who worked at the same place as this Planned Parenthood physician….just say’n.
