Responding to AHA’s claim pro-lifers focus on “abortion hurts women”

Posted in AHA, Pro-life History with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2015 by saynsumthn

This past weekend a debate between pro-life advocate Gregg Cunningham vs. Abolish Human Abortion advocate T. Russell Hunter took place in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

____________________________

The purpose was for each one to defend their view on abortion strategy: Incrementalism vs. Immediatism.

I am not going to address the entire debate in this blog post.

For those interested, pro-life blogger, Jill Stanek has analyzed the debate in a series of blog posts here which I recommend.

The purpose of this blog post is to address two statements made by Hunter.

Gregg Russell prolife vs AHA abortion Debate

During the debate, Hunter makes claims that pro-life strategy of working towards complete abolition of abortion and accepting gradual or incremental methods to save every baby possible along the way is sin.

Then Hunter implies that pro-life people do not call the sinner to repent for abortion. This is one of the statement’s I wish to address here.

Hunter says, “You notice the difference between an immediatist and an incrementalist, in that an immediatists says abortion is sin turn to God and goes out daily and to that work.” (Note: The last three words of Hunter’s statement are hard to make out from the audio, but I think I caught them correctly, please notify me if I am incorrect.)

TR Debate AHA

Hunter ran through his points so quickly that I believe that they are worth reviewing. Let’s pause there for a moment and analyze what Hunter is implying.

The comments begin at 58:29 of the debate video – here if you want to hear them.

First the statement, “an immediatists says abortion is sin turn to God” is intentionally designed to imply that anyone who claims the name “pro-life” and supports “incremental” strategies does not believe that abortion is sin or proclaim that society needs to turn to God.

This is an utterly ignorant and rather insulting statement.

The pro-life movement is made up of a large number of Bible believing Christian people. I would be in that group.

I understand the ignorance of a person who only recently joined the fight to end abortion while claiming to be a Christian for many years. But, just because Hunter and many of his followers have decided to responded to the Biblical mandate to “rescue those being led to the slaughter” does not mean history on this movement began with them.

As much as Hunter would like to re-write the history of the pro-life movement he did not live it as many many pro-lifers did and can now testify as first hand witnesses.

But to the point at hand, there is ample evidence past and present that the call to repentance was and is given within the pro-life community.

This 2001 letter to the editor is just one example:

US Repent 2001 abortion

_______________________________________________

The 1980’s rescues were also public calls for not only the church to repent from abortion apathy, but also for society to do the same. No AHA meme, statement, or fancy design can erase that history.

___________________________________

Moving on…

The second part of Hunter’s statement which I’d like to address is as follows:

    Incrementalists say things like abortion hurts women. It does. But the focus is on, it hurts women not abortion kills babies, even though they recognize that abortion kills babies.”

Again- that is a preposterous statement.

Abortion Hurts Women Debate

The very images collected by the pro-life community, which Hunter now uses in all his effective social media memes, is proof that the focus is on the fact that abortion kills babies.

In addition, I have also documented that pure legislation to defend the preborn and outlaw all abortions was put forth via Human Life Amendments during the early days. That documentation can be found here.

Having said that, there is nothing wrong with saying that abortion hurts women. Hunter, for all his protesting, admits it in fact does. Is not truth- truth?

I will give Hunter the benefit of the doubt on this topic because again, the AHA leader chose to get into this fierce fight after abortion had been legal for a number of years, so he is rather ignorant of historical battles, ideas, and lies that the pro-life community has had to dismantle for the past 42 years.

Those who are new to the abortion battle may not realize that the abortion lobby made major inroads by painting illegal abortion as “unsafe” causing women to die.

It is simple logic to counter the lie that helped legalize abortion with the truth, which is that women still die from abortion and legalization does not necessarily make abortions safe.

Keep abortion safe and legal

The lies:

NARAL Pin

    Millions of women died from illegal abortions.

    If you make abortions illegal, women will die.

Case in point, during the debate to liberalize abortion in New York, the issue of unsafe abortions swayed one representative to change his vote on the floor, opening the door to abortion on demand in that state.

NY Constance Cook

Assemblywoman Constance E. Cook stood to the floor during that 1970 debate to push the lie of unsafe abortion, stating, “I submit that we have abortion on demand in the state of New York right now. Any woman that wants an abortion can get one–if she has $25, she has it done here, under the most abominable circumstances,” and that prohibition only drives abortion underground.”

This clip from the film “Choice at Risk” gives a historical glimpse :

Repealing Abortion Laws (4:18) from Dorothy Fadiman on Vimeo.

The deciding vote was cast by Democrat Assemblyman, George Michaels, who told the LA Times that for years he had been told by local party leaders not to vote for the repeal of the abortion ban, and he pledged not to. For two years he had followed the party line.

ASSY George Michaels cast vote to legalize abortion

    I would vote no, hoping the bill would pass,” he said. “I was not doing the right thing.”

    In April, 1970, the night before he left for Albany, Michaels spent an evening with his daughter-in-law, Sarah.

    Sarah asked him what would happen when the abortion bill came up for a vote again. There was a chance it would pass, he told her.

    What if it doesn’t?” she asked.

    Maybe next year,” he said.

    Michaels says he has never been able to forget what his son’s young wife told him next:

    In the meantime, thousands of women will be mutilated and die because of that stupid Legislature.

    Boy, that rocked me,” Michaels says. “That rocked me.”

The National Abortion Rights Action League, NARAL, also lied about women dying from illegal abortions. One of their early founders, Dr. Bernard Nathanson, who later repented of his pro-abortion actions and views, described what they did early on:

Bernard Nathanson

    “We persuaded the media that the cause of permissive abortion was a liberal, enlightened, sophisticated one,” recalls the movement’s co-founder. “Knowing that if a true poll were taken, we would be soundly defeated, we simply fabricated the results of fictional polls. We announced to the media that we had taken polls and that 60 percent of Americans were in favor of permissive abortion. This is the tactic of the self-fulfilling lie. Few people care to be in the minority. We aroused enough sympathy to sell our program of permissive abortion by fabricating the number of illegal abortions done annually in the U.S. The actual figure was approaching 100,000, but the figure we gave to the media repeatedly was 1,000,000.”

McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Robert P. George breaks it down further when he writes this about the NARAL founder:

    Nathanson and his friends lied—relentlessly and spectacularly—about the number of women who died each year from illegal abortions. Their pitch to voters, lawmakers, and judges was that women are going to seek abortion in roughly equal numbers whether it is lawful or not. The only effect of outlawing it, they claimed, is to limit pregnant women to unqualified and often uncaring practitioners, “back alley butchers.” So, Nathanson and others insisted, laws against abortion are worse than futile: they do not save fetal lives; they only cost women’s lives.

abortion-rally-1970s

For clarification, stats show that, in the year prior to Roe, the CDC disputed the lie that thousands of women died from illegal abortion as shown in this table from their surveillance report on abortion.

cdc-illegal-abortion-deaths

So, to summarize, just because Hunter says that the pro-life movement does not focus on “abortion kills babies” does not make it so.

When the pro-life community documents that abortion is not safe for women it does not automatically mean they do not focus on the fact that abortion kills babies. For many of us, we are able to articulate multiple facts.

In addition, because AHA leaders claim that pro-lifers do not call abortion sin, does not make the claim true either as I stated above.

However, in my personal study of scripture, I do not see every effort to dialogue or convey truth being preceded by the command “repent.”

King Solomon, himself was conflicted when he was forced to determine who the mother of a baby brought before him was. He did not tell the two women squabbling to repent of their actions. Instead the wise King appealed to the heart of the true mother:

The NIV version of the events in I Kings is detailed below:

    The king said, “This one says, ‘My son is alive and your son is dead,’ while that one says, ‘No! Your son is dead and mine is alive.’”

    Then the king said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword for the king. 25 He then gave an order: “Cut the living child in two and give half to one and half to the other.”

    The woman whose son was alive was deeply moved out of love for her son and said to the king, “Please, my lord, give her the living baby! Don’t kill him!”

    But the other said, “Neither I nor you shall have him. Cut him in two!”

    Then the king gave his ruling: “Give the living baby to the first woman. Do not kill him; she is his mother.”

In the story above, the true mother, the one who cared for and loved the baby, was willing to compromise to save her child’s life.

Think about that for a while, as you ponder the debate !

86 the coat hanger suggests abortion advocate

Posted in Coat Hanger Abortion Spin, Illegal abortion, RH Reality Blog with tags , , , , , , on March 1, 2015 by saynsumthn

Cynthia R. Greenlee over at the RH Reality blog, a venue for radically pro-abortion ideology, thinks the abortion rights movement needs to move beyond the iconic coat hanger symbol.

The young activist for the legalization of child killing in the womb asks, “Beyond the Coat Hanger: What’s Next for Abortion Rights Iconography?”

CoatHangerButtonil_570xN.303036483

“Since the invention and consumerization of the ultrasound, the fetus has taken center stage…” Greenlee writes of pro-lifers.

Abortion rights activists may have a harder job in creating a symbolic language. How do you convey the state of abortion access—legal but increasingly restricted—visually?” she states.

Greenlee seems rather concerned that the only symbol the abortion rights crowd uses consistently is the coat hanger, noting that younger activists do not have the same emotion toward that symbol.

As much I hate to admit it, the coat hanger doesn’t resonate with me or many other people my age or younger,” she says.

Coat Hanger images

For many in the reproductive rights movement, the coat hanger is more than a commonplace closet item. Activists use it to memorialize those girls and women who turned to unsafe abortions out of desperation when abortion was illegal. It transforms into shorthand for “Never again.”

Coat Hanger march-life-abortion

“Although the symbol resurfaces throughout the year, it becomes a frequent sight around the January anniversary of Roe v. Wade. As I saw coat hanger references earlier this year, I felt an odd dissonance. I knew what I was supposed to feel: outrage, sadness, and a renewed commitment to reproductive justice. Instead, though, I only felt unmoved and then unnerved. For me, and many others born after Roe, the fixation on coat hangers as the prevailing iconography of the reproductive rights movement excludes the possibility of alternatives that are more relevant to current struggles.”

Greenlee correctly points out that not all illegal abortions were unsafe,”as durable as the images of the coat hanger or dangerous back-alley procedure may be, not all illegal abortions were unsafe; many were performed by trained clinicians working outside the law,” she states.

CDC Illegal ABortion Deaths

Although the abortion lobby wants people to believe that illegal abortion killed millions of women, they do not have the stats to back up their claims. In fact, in the year prior to Roe a very small number of women died from illegal abortion.

Despite all their rhetoric, it is becoming more and more difficult to convince the American public that abortion is safe, when women are dropping dead from legal abortions.

ct-ct-abortion-death1-jpg-20150216

The truth is that abortion pushers can’t 86 the coat hanger, because, as much as it was the tool they used to con the public into accepting abortion prior to Roe – it has remained a tool to keep abortion legal.

TN Death List

There is a growing list of women who are lying dead after believing the lie that legalizing abortion made it safe. The names of these pro-choice dead women haunt abortion supporters who refuse to acknowledge their tragic end.

Despite the fact that women are bleeding to death from legal abortion inside Planned Parenthood or are abused and butchered at the neighborhood abortion clinic with no emergency carts available Greenlee and her crowd are doomed to the coat hanger symbol as a diversion to the bloodshed that goes on today.

Stop Patriarchy’s radical leader, Sunsara Taylor, tweeted this, “Anti abortion woman haters stopped in their tracks today! Several arrested standing up for women.”

The group had planned on protests in several cities where pro-lifers were gathering today for the anniversary of the infamous Supreme Court decision legalizing abortion on demand.

Also on their radar today is Oakland, California, where Black pro-life preachers will have a rally to expose the racist agenda of abortion and Black genocide. (more here).

Interviews with the radicals emerged on YouTube:

The group likes to refer their supporters WAYYYYY back to the days of illegal abortion, when they “claim” with little proof, that thousands of women died prior to it’s legalization.

To rev up their handful of supporters and their keep “Abortion on Demand” mantra going- they carry around posters of women they “claim” died from illegal abortions.

The only problem is- women still die from abortion.

When illegal abortion operators bribed the police

Posted in Illegal abortion with tags , , , , , on December 30, 2014 by saynsumthn

Prior to the legalization of abortion, some operators bribed the police in order to stay in business.

Under the sub title: The Abortion Racket, a 1966 Dade County Grand Jury final report reads:

The grand jury feels that officers of the law should not be permitted to enrich themselves from payoffs from either doctors of patients on abortion cases. The grand jury has not been able to adequately investigate the abortion racket in the county, but finds that there is evidence tending to prove that officers of the law have been forcing physicians to pay bribes in order to escape arrest and protection for having committed abortions and to permit them to continue to do so.

Abortion Racket

A 1967 Miami News story indicated that two Miami police officers were ordered to stand trial in an abortion bribe case. The charges alleged the two took $5500 in bribes from two abortionists.

Miami 1967 abortion police bribe

In 1970, a Detroit abortion clinic was caught giving bribes to police so they could continue operating. A Ludington, Michigan paper reports that even a newly appointed police chief was allegedly in on the scam.

The paper says the Detroit Free Press had reported that a former teamsters union attorney had admitted personally delivering Mafia bribes of $1000.00 a month to three top ranking police from one abortion clinic.

Detroit police bribe abortion

In 1966, a Miami abortionist was arrested an accused of attempting to bribe a police officer. Dr Luis Barquet Bulas offered the police officer $4000.00 to let him go the Miami News reported. The abortion doctor had a 36 state alert out for his arrest after bribing police officers in New York for $50,000.

In 1951, an illegal abortionist says his arrest was the result of his refusal to pay a bribe to a Portland police officer.

In 1956, a bail bondsman and a lawyer were accused of attempting to bribe a Miami judge in an abortion ring case. They denied the charges.

A pro-choice abortion group has filmed themselves crossing the border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Texas Side Abortion Pills

According to a blog post published by Jill Stanek, Dawn Porter and members of the National Network of Abortion Funds traveled to Texas where they filmed themselves crossing the Mexican border to buy Misoprostol, an ulcer drug that is used off-label to induce abortions.

Group that went for Ab ills May 30 2014

Misoprostol is available only by prescription in the U.S. and can only be dispensed by doctors for abortions. But it can be purchased over-the-counter in Mexico.

Mexico Abortion Pills

After the purchase, NNAF tweeted photos, along with instructions on how to use Misoprostol illegally to self-induce an abortion…

Aquired in mexico May 30 2014

Stanek points out that, now that legal abortion is becoming scarcer in places, proponents are reversing course and promoting the very same illegal abortions they protested against four decades ago.

NNAF actually hosts a web page explaining how to use Misoprostol illegally, with instructions to lie to medical staff at the hospital emergency room one drags herself to.

Stanek’s full blog post on this topic is worth reading- see it here.

You may be interested in knowing that the NNAF has confirmed that legal abortion is all about profit anyway- see more in my post here !

Make note that the promotion of unsafe “illegal” abortion has always come from the same crowd tat promotes “legal” abortion.

Abortion in 1966: Three Men Weigh in On Women’s Rights
Number 43
Thursday, July 12, 2012 – 04:30 PM

Abortion was the topic of this 1966 broadcast of Main Currents, hosted by Lee Graham. Three panelists (all men) used the recent introduction of a bill that would “liberalize” existing abortion restrictions as a springboard for a wide-ranging discussion of the practice both in the United States and abroad, and for exploring the historical basis for such restrictions and what the future may hold.

There were no abortion opponents present. Indeed, the only opposition mentioned was the Roman Catholic Church, and even that institution, one of the participants assures, is “approaching a state of fluidity greater than what we’ve seen in previous years.” This sober, for the most part reasoned, conversation is striking in its contrast to the fanatic rhetoric to come.

The three panelists were Alfred Julien, a trial lawyer conversant with the abortion law and how the proposed bill (introduced by State Senator Percy Sutton) would change access to abortions; Dr. Robert Hall, an obstetrician; and Lawrence Lader, a journalist who would become well known as a crusader for women’s reproductive rights. Currently, Hall explains, a legal abortion can only be performed to preserve the life, but not the health, of the mother. This crucial distinction, he argues, “prevents us from practicing good medicine.” Julien, the lawyer, calls the present law “harsh and restrictive.” Lader, instead of focusing narrowly on the legal or medical aspects of the debate, sees abortion as a civil rights issue. He quotes Margaret Sanger, who said, “No woman can call herself free who does not own and control her own body.”

Lader was a major voice in the abortion debate for four decades, becoming a lightning rod for its critics as well as a beacon for its proponents. He wrote influential books and articles on the subject, organized ministers to refer women wanting abortions to doctors as well as referring 2,000 himself, helped found what was long known as the National Abortion Rights Action League and helped win New York State’s repeal of abortion restrictions in 1970.

“Another myth we fed to the public through the media was that legalizing abortion would only mean that the abortions taking place illegally would then be done legally. In fact, of course, abortion is now being used as a primary method of birth control in the U.S. and the annual number of abortions has increased by 1,500 percent since legalization.”

Isolated incident? Another LEGAL abortionist has license yanked !
1/25/2011

The Orange County Register is reporting that Anaheim abortionist Dr. Andrew Rutland, accused by the California Medical Board of homicide in the death of an abortion patient, has agreed to surrender his medical license for a second time.

Rutland, 67, will give up his license effective Feb. 11, rather than face disciplinary proceedings for allegations of gross negligence in the death of Ying Chen, who suffered a toxic reaction to anesthesia in 2009. Board documents allege that the storefront San Gabriel clinic was not equipped to handle emergencies, and that Rutland failed to recognize her reaction, adequately attempt resuscitation or promptly call 911.

Chen’s death in August 2009 was initially classified as accidental. But in June 2010, the Los Angeles County chief medical examiner reclassified the death of the 30-year-old Chinese immigrant as a homicide.

Previously, in a letter, Rutland described Chen’s death as an “unpreventable complication.”

The latest settlement agreement says Rutland acknowledges the board could establish “factual basis” for one or more charges, with the exception of homicide.

Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, said possible criminal charges remain under review.

The reclassified cause of death is one of several challenges Rutland has faced since Chen died.

A year ago, the medical board obtained a court order barring Rutland from performing surgeries or delivering babies. To test his compliance, the board sent an undercover investigator to his Chula Vista clinic. She pretended to be pregnant and asked for a surgical abortion, which Rutland refused to perform. He instead offered a “pharmaceutical abortion” via a tablet.

Around the same time, Rutland was forced to find a new colleague to oversee his practice, a condition of his probation after his license was reinstated. Rutland’s practice monitor, Dr. Christopher Dotson, had himself been disciplined in the death of a mother who bled to death after giving birth. The board said staff had erred in allowing Dotson to serve in that role and he was removed.

Independently from the Medical Board, Operation Rescue conducted an undercover sting of its own on February 3, 2010, wherein a woman posing as a potential abortion customer received an appointment for a surgical abortion with Rutland for later that day.

Operation Rescue immediately contacted the Medical Board and submitted a copy of the recorded conversation.

Listen to the call

Rutland’s attorney told the LA Times that Rutland’s daughter was actually doing the surgical abortions, but in the call made by Operation Rescue, the receptionist “Rhea” indicated that the caller’s appointment would be with Dr. Rutland, referring frequently to “him.” There was no mention of another physician.

In August, Chen’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Rutland.

Originally, Rutland’s clinic opened up following the eight year battle to close another a “shop of horrors” run by , Bertha Bugarin, who was sentenced to seven years in state prison for posing as a doctor and performing illegal abortions. Read More Here – Story below:

Recently in Pennsylvania, abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s clinic was also called a “Shop of Horrors” and closed after YEARS of failed inspections and monitoring:

According to Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, the decision to pull Rutlan’s medical license, “was many years in coming. It is a victory for women and babies who will never have to be subjected to his shoddy, back-alley practices.”

Rutland was first licensed in California in 1973. His license was revoked in 2002 after two babies died due to his negligence. At that time he was also charged with, frightening women into agreeing to unnecessary hysterectomies, botching surgeries, lying to patients, falsifying medical records, over-prescribing painkillers and having sex with a patient in his office.
In 2007, Rutland reapplied and was granted a new license.

“This was a huge mistake by the board,” said Newman. “It ended up costing one woman her life. I think it would be tough to sleep at night knowing that.”

Perhaps that is why the Board aggressively pursued Rutland after 30-year old Ying Chen died from a reaction to anesthesia at a dirty San Gabriel acupuncture clinic in August, 2009. It attempted to suspend his license on an emergency basis, but a Judge instead ordered Rutland not to commit surgical abortions while allowing him to continue prescribing the abortion pill.
Operation Rescue caught Rutland offering abortion appointments and reported him to the Medical Board.

In June of last year, the medical examiner reclassified Chen’s death as a homicide. The Board filed an amended complaint to reflect that. The Board charged that Rutland did not adequately secure Chen’s consent for a second trimester abortion or recognize the severity of her condition. He attempted the abortion at an unsafe facility that did not have proper emergency equipment or trained staff, and did not call for emergency care in a timely manner.

Rutland has not been criminally charged, and in his surrender agreement, Rutland did not admit to guilt on the homicide count. The District Attorney told reporters that a criminal case is under investigation.

This news comes on the heels of the arrest of the arrests of Kermit Gosnell and nine of his employees for murder and other violations of the law of an eerily similar nature to Rutland’s.
“The political climate that has shielded abortions for decades is changing. Boards and prosecutors who once yawned at allegations of abortion abuses are now turning a keen eye toward them,” said Newman. “These cases send a strong message to abortionists everywhere that they are no longer above the law.”

Read the Surrender Order and Complaint

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

As for Rutland’s assistant- one needs to do a closer look at him as well:

The California Medical Board allowed an Anaheim ob-gyn who regained his license after the death of two newborns to be monitored by a doctor who had himself been disciplined for a patient’s death.

Board rules require that doctors serve as monitors only if they have no record of disciplinary action. In this case, the board let Dr. Christopher C. Dotson of Los Angeles help oversee Dr. Andrew Rutland’s five years of probation.

As for abortionist Christopher C. Dotson…according to the website for the abortion clinic: Eve Surgical Center

Eve’s abortionist: “Christopher C. Dotson, Jr., M.D., is a pioneer in reproductive health care. He is certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, a member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the American College of Surgeons and the Los Angeles Obstetrical and Gynecological Society. He has taught residents at Cedars Sinai Medical Center and at the local medical schools for over thirty years.”

And get this ladies and gentlemen….”Presently his energies are devoted to overseeing the program at Eve Surgical Center and serving as a member of the Board of Directors of the National Abortion Federation.” ( NOTE: Wait a second – doesn’t NAF brag that they “oversee” the safety standards of abortion clinics nationwide? )

According to the OC Register: Dotson, 78, completed five years of probation in 2005, part of his settlement of negligence allegations stemming from a mother who bled to death after a Caesarean section and a separate case of a stillborn baby. (NOTE – Well… no wonder he has such a high NAF Rating- a woman died )

The Register obtained Dotson’s disciplinary records last week and asked the medical board on Jan. 27 why a previously disciplined doctor was allowed to serve as monitor. On Tuesday board spokeswoman Candis Cohen responded, saying probation staff had erred and Dotson has now been removed as Rutland’s practice monitor.

More of Eve’s Docs – you may want to be aware of: Josepha Seletz, M.D. is Board Certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She is a member of the National Abortion Federation, the Los Angeles County Women’s Medical Association, and the Los Angeles Obstetrical and Gynecological Society.” ( NOTE: Wow…2 NAF members working at the same place for the price of 1…the women in the care of Rutland and Dotson must have been in very safe hands – NOT !)

Dr. Seletz has been on staff at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology for more than 15 years. Before limiting her practice to abortion services, she had a full OB/Gyn practice including gynecological surgery and high-risk obstetrics.”
(NOTE: Can’t wait to read what pops up on her next)>

Gee…Dotson sounds like a top-notch doc. If you are marketing abortions to unsuspecting women, then I guess that trick works..but a little research shows that on October 25,2000 The LA Times wrote this about Dotson: Dr. Christopher C. Dotson Jr., Los Angeles: Committed acts of unprofessional conduct during the care and treatment of two obstetrical patients. Revocation of license stayed, five years’ probation. Effective June 16. But perhaps among abortionists, this National Abortion Federation Board Member is one of the “best”. ( Just Say’n!)

According to: Reporting on Health writer William Heisel:

“Dotson was among the rarest of the rare, a doctor who had been reported to the medical board by his hospital. Hollywood Presbyterian Hospital in Los Angeles said Dotson had been negligent in the treatment of multiple patients. He lost his privileges to practice there.

One of Dotson’s patients died following an abortion in February 1992. The board said that Dotson failed to adequately examine her and should have classified her case as high risk. Because he did not, the board said, the patient ended up bleeding severely from her uterus. Dotson was not prepared to respond. He did not have the right equipment, and he was not able to give her a blood transfusion quickly enough.

This may sound familiar. Rutland also is accused of negligence during an abortion and of failing to adequately examine the patient, Ying Chen. “Key information is missing from the patient’s history such as height, weight and last menstrual period,” the board wrote. “There is no record of the ultrasound examination.”

The board said Rutland “failed to respond in a timely manner in performing appropriate resuscitative measures and obtaining the assistance of emergency personnel.” He also failed to give her an oxygen mask and failed to call 911 quickly enough. Rutland has maintained throughout the medical board and criminal cases that he did nothing wrong in the treatment of Chen.

Might the similarities between their cases have made Dotson sympathetic to Rutland’s plight?

The similarities don’t stop there. Like Rutland, Dotson also has been sued multiple times by patients claiming injury or wrongful death.

In 2005, the week before Dotson’s probation was set to expire, a 34-year-old attorney named Oriane Shevin visited Dotson’s clinic, Eve Surgical Center in Los Angeles, according to records filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court. She was given RU-486, the two-stage abortion drug, and sent home. Shevin took the first part, mifepristone, orally on June 9, 2005, and inserted the misoprostol into her vagina on June 10. She developed a widespread infection and severe bleeding, dying on June 14 at Encino-Tarzana Regional Medical Center, court records show. ( SAY AGAIN? NOT the Same Abortion Clinic which had two National Abortion Federation Members and One Board Member on staff- couldn’t happen there – could it?)

Dotson was sued on behalf of Shevin’s two young children, and he, along with another doctor and the surgical center, settled the case on July 12, 2007.

Two months later, Rutland was given his license back, with restrictions, and Dotson, fresh out of probation, was given the job of overseeing Rutland’s practice.”

Back to the OC Register Story, “The board has accused Rutland of not knowing the appropriate dose of anesthesia and failing to properly attempt to resuscitate Chen, who died in August. Rutland denies he was negligent.

Dotson wrote a letter to the medical board’s enforcement unit Oct. 9, vouching for Rutland’s record keeping and saying Chen died “in spite of appropriate resuscitation efforts.”

“In my opinion, Dr. Rutland is taking his probation very seriously and doing everything he can to more than meet the requisite requirements,” Dotson wrote. ( NOTE: Now there is that typical National Abortion Federation attitude: The abortion patient death is just a “complication” and not to be taken seriously…after all…it is only an “isolated” death unlike the murder of a few abortionist, who are typically male, and make money for NAF)

( More on that great NAF Board Member) The OC Register continues the report: In 1992, a pregnant woman was admitted to Centinela Hospital in Inglewood with bleeding. Dotson performed a C-section, but she continued to lose blood. Lawyers for the board said Dotson failed to identify her as high-risk based on her medical history or give her enough transfused blood. Additionally, he closed her abdomen and sent her to recovery instead of monitoring her and calling for a hematologist.

After her condition worsened she was taken back to the operating room for a hysterectomy. She suffered a heart attack and died of hemorrhaging.

At the time this was originally researched, Abortionist Rutland has been instructed to submit the name of a new monitor for board approval. ( Hmmm…I wonder who he would have selected? Another NAF member ?)
