Kermit Gosnell activity happening at highest levels of Planned Parenthood says Daleiden

On Wednesday’s Dana Loesch show Center for Medical Progress lead investigator, David Daleiden called what was revealed in his latest video exposing Planned Parenthood’s baby parts operation “Kermit Gosnell activity.”

The latest video, number 7, is horrific and shows eyewitness Holly O’Donnell, a former StemExpress procurement technician describing the day she was called upon to remove brain tissue from a baby born alive, with his heart still beating after a Planned Parenthood abortion.

It is Kermit Gosnell activity happening at the highest levels of Planned Parenthood,” Daleiden told Loesch.

Gosnell ran the Philadelphia House of Horrors abortion facility and is serving time in prison for severing the spines of babies born alive.

One of the interesting facts that came out about the Gosnell case was that many within the abortion industry knew what he was doing and remained silent.

In fact, according to media reports, leaders from local Planned Parenthood affiliates knew exactly what was going on:

Daylesteinberg

CEO of Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania Dayle Steinberg began her association with Planned Parenthood 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.

In February of 2010 WHYY reported that Steinberg 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.”

PP Lied GosnellBut 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.”

Despite her obvious contradictions, the media is publishing statements by Steinberg regarding Planned Parenthood’s gruesome operation. Case in point is an August 2015 op-ed where Steinberg accuses the Center for Medical Progress of editing the videos. She also details the many vaccines made from the body parts of aborted children.

Her words were published by Philly.com which read in part:

    Although none of the Planned Parenthood health centers in Pennsylvania is participating in fetal-tissue donation programs, we recognize their deep value. The polio vaccine was developed from fetal kidney cells, as were vaccines against chicken pox, rubella, hepatitis A, and shingles. So, too, were treatments for diseases that include Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. And thousands of women who chose abortion have found great comfort and a sense of social good from donating fetal tissue to advance medical treatments that save lives. According to an article published by the New England Journal of Medicine, “Virtually every person in this country has benefited from research using fetal tissue. . . By using the public’s unfamiliarity with the history and realities of fetal-tissue research as a back door for attacking Planned Parenthood, abortion opponents have added millions of people to the collateral damage of the abortion wars.”

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte San Jose

Daleiden described Planned Parenthood Mar Monte’s Alameda clinic in San Jose, CA., where O’Donnell was when she removed the brains from an intact born alive infant, as the largest Planned Parenthood facility with a $100 MILLION dollar a year budget. (Keep in mind they also receive tax dollars) and their latest (2012) 990 report indicates this is true:

Planned Parenthood Mar Monte 100 million 990

That same report lists Dorothy L Furgerson as the Chief Medical Director.

Does this name ring a bell? It should, Dorothy L Furgerson endorsed StemExpress and was listed on their brochure claiming a financial profit for those who utilize their services.

Stem Express financial benefit Planned Parenthood 1

In addition to Furgerson, the 990 lists “physicians” Abraham C Cabebe and Karen Webster.

2012 PLanned Parenthood Mar Monte med director abortionists

A 2008, 2009 and 2010 990 for the same Planned Parenthood affiliate lists Ronald Berman and Jesse Joplin.

Ron Berman Planned Parenthood STemExpress

Berman is a StemExpress Medical Director who is also a Planned Parenthood abortion doctor accused by former procurement technician, O’Donnell of getting aborted babies, “viciously fast.” Telling CMP investigators that she imagined Dr. Berman literally, “going into the room, lifting the covers, going in, grabbing and walking out. Like that’s how fast it is, it’s ridiculous.”

Center for Medical Progress Dana Loesch

Daleiden told Loesch that four Congressional committees have opened up investigations into Planned Parenthood. He said lawsuits from StemExpress as well as NAF has not deterred him from releasing some of the most horrific aspects of CMP’s investigation.

Despite the horrifying video evidence, some people still support Planned Parenthood.

For further consideration, the Daily Signal has published a video explaining all of the concerns raised by the videos to date. Watch it here.

Pro-life overpass demonstration “We Remember Gosnell”

Posted in Kermit Gosnell, Pro-life Waco with tags , , , , , , on May 11, 2015 by saynsumthn

Pro-lifers in Waco, Texas have begun a monthly overpass campaign where they expose abortion off a busy highway in the city and this month their focus was the conviction of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell.

Gosnell murdered babies 2149381355651178801_o

The group,Pro-life Waco, has had a lot of success in their town exposing Planned Parenthood as well as their connection to the Girl Scouts and Susan G. Komen.

In this high speed traffic situation, short messages with huge lettering appear to work better than images,” said John Pisciotta, a spokesperson for Pro-life Waco, which organized the overpass campaign said.

This past weekend the group set up their “We Remember Gosnell Pedestrian Overpass Demonstration” where they displayed pro-life messages to thousands of motorists across Interstate 35.

Gosnell Waco

Gosnell was convicted in 2013 of several murder counts after sniping the necks of babies born alive at his house of horrors abortion mill in Philadelphia, Pa.

Overpass demonstrations will be a fitting way to recall and remember a sad chapter of American history,” Pisciotta said.

DrKermitGosnell

This chapter featured a heartless murder rampage of a Philadelphia abortionist, government regulators who looked the other way for years, and a mainstream media that shielded the abortion industry by refusing to report on the Gosnell murders,” he said.

Pisciotta said that in addition to the motorists which could see the pro-life banners hanging from the highway, the Waco event had a significant flow of pedestrian traffic which allowed the group to share about the abortion holocaust.

In addition to Waco, pro-lifers in several other states also used the 2nd anniversary of Gosnell’s murder‬ conviction to expose abortion as well.

This picture was posted to the Facebook page, Home Town Pro-life Action by Chris Iverson, where pro-lifers in Lombard, IL., took part.

And activists in Albuquerque, NM set up over Interstate 25, posting these images:

According to Pisciotta, pro-lifers in San Antonio also took part in the overpass demonstration.

“The pro-life community MUST maintain the memory of the Gosnell murders of the adult mom and born and pre-born babies. We must do the work that the pro-death mainstream press refuses to do,” Pisciotta added.

This blog has posted several times correcting the media about the false claim that Kermit Gosnell was an anomaly. Good for those who continue to keep Gosnell out front as an example of what abortion on demand means in America.

Richards called Gov Wolf, “the first governor in the history of the country who was also a former Planned Parenthood clinic escort.”

What she failed to say is that Pennsylvania was also the home of doctor, Kermit Gosnell who is serving time in prison for snipping the spinal cords of babies he delivered and then killed at his rarely inspected House of Horrors abortion clinic.

Do Tennessee abortion clinics operate in the dark like Gosnell’s House of Horrors clinic?

Posted in Abortion Clinic Inspections with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 31, 2014 by saynsumthn

Pro-lifers in Tennessee are working to pass Amendment 1 which would require inspections of abortion clinics.

Amendment 1 would give the state legislature more power to regulate abortion in Tennessee, essentially putting the state in line with what’s allowable under federal law.

In 2012, a conversation was captured on video between a lawmaker and a Tennessee Department of Health representative which explains why the Amendment is needed.

Tennessee legislator Joey Hensley, a licensed physician, discussed the lack of abortion facility regulations with the Assistant Commissioner from the Tennessee Department of Health and her answers were stunning.

She admited that the Department of Health has no enforcement ability to require abortion clinics to report to the state.

This sounds eerily similar to what took place in Pennsylvania when Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors abortion clinic was allowed to operate without any state inspections for years.

After operating for years, in the early 1990’s the Pennsylvania Department of Health instituted a policy of inspecting abortion clinics only when there was a complaint.

Gosnell House of Horrors l_corbettattackadx1200
After Gov. Tom Ridge, who supported abortion rights, was elected, the state Department of Health stopped inspecting abortion clinics.

According to a grand jury investigation, “Officials concluded that inspections would be ‘putting a barrier up to women’ seeking abortions” and decided “to leave clinics to do as they pleased.” 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.

Less than a year later, eight charges of homicide for killing seven newborns and one female patient was brought against the abortion doctor. Various additional charges were brought against members of Gosnell’s staff. He was eventually convicted and is serving time in prison.

Do Tennessee abortion clinics operate in the dark like Gosnell’s House of Horrors clinic?

In the video conversation with the Tennessee Department of Health representative, she admits to lawmaker Joey Hensley, that when it comes to abortion clinics reporting to the state there is no teeth in current law to require them to comply.

TN Amendment 1 Vid

Hensley asks the Tennessee Department of Health representative, “You require presently everyone who performs an abortion to report to the state?”

She replies, “Correct.”

Hensley asks, “How do you enforce that requirement?”

Untitled

SILENCE….. Then……Her response, “I’m not exactly sure how we enforce that.”

Hensley asks, “How do you enforce that? Do you check the abortion clinics and check their records and see if they have actually reported this information?”

She replies, “No sir, it’s not quite that active from our department.”

Hensley, “So you just ask ’em to and assume?”

She says, “We let them know a couple times a year that they’re supposed to be reporting this information to the Department of Health.”

Hensley, “So that all you do? And then just- you assume that they report it?”

What she says next says it all, “It doesn’t have any teeth in the law for us to force them to report to us.”

You can watch the conversation here:

To show how dangerous abortion clinics are to women, advocates of Amendment 1 released this video which containes actual audio of a 911 call from an abortion facility.

During the call a staffer, from The Women’s Center abortion clinic, operated by Dr. Gary Boyle, directs other unidentified personnel where to find medication, and provides the following details to the 911 dispatcher.

911: “Tell me exactly what happened…”

WC Staff: “She started coughing and she quit breathing….”

911: “Is she breathing?”

WC Staff: “Uh, some”

WC Staff: “She just started having a coughing fit and maybe had quit breathing at one point.”

911: “Is her breathing completely normal?

WC Staff: “Now? No.”

911: “And is she completely alert?”

WC Staff: “No.”

911: “Is she changing color?”

WC Staff: “Yes….She just looks ashen, she’s a black woman…”

911: “Does she have any abdominal pain?”

WC Staff: “Uh, I’m sure she does, she’s in the middle of getting an abortion.”

“Tennessee requires no health inspection of abortion facilities, has no informed consent and no waiting periods for abortion. Amendment 1 does not overturn Roe vs. Wade like the amendment’s opponents would have you believe. I wish it did. However, Amendment 1 does bring Tennessee back up to a standard equal to all the surrounding states by legally providing a safer environment for women who do choose to abort their babies,” said Randy C. Davis, executive director/treasurer of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, a group of more than 3,200 cooperating Baptist churches, and an advocate of Amendment 1.

Voters in the state will cast their final decision on the amendment November 4th.

TV movie considered for the most prolific serial killer in American history – abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell

Posted in Kermit Gosnell with tags , , , , , , , on March 28, 2014 by saynsumthn

gosnell_key_art_a_l

An independent filmmaker says he will tackle the gruesome and controversial case of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, a Philadelphia abortion doctor serving life in prison after multiple convictions on first-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter and the snipping of the babies necks inside his House of Horrors abortion clinic in Philadelphia, reports Hollywood Reporter.

GOSNELLKMugShot

From the article:
The filmmaker, Phelim McAleer, says he will explore not only Gosnell’s actions — he calls Gosnell “America’s biggest serial killer” — but also what he says is the bureaucratic and media inattention that allowed them to continue until his arrest in 2011.

McAleer’s project is to be produced by his Hat Tip Productions as a television movie that he will pitch to various cable TV channels. He’s attempting to raise $2.1 million at IndieGoGo for its financing. If he is successful, his would be the biggest crowdfunding campaign ever at IndieGoGo.

Gosnell the Movie: Kermit Gosnell, the most prolific serial killer in American history

McAleer says Hollywood, too, is biased against the story, pointing out that there have been multiple movies made about serial killers like Ted Bundy, John Wayne Gacy, Jeffrey Dahmer and the Zodiac Killer.

“The Jodi Arias trial ended at the same time as Gosnell and a film was on TV within nine months. The L.A.-based serial killer the Grim Sleeper has just had a movie on Lifetime and he has not been convicted yet,” McAleer says. “You’re more likely to find Hollywood executives at a fundraiser for Planned Parenthood than trawling the media for stories such as Kermit Gosnell.”

McAleer says he may still option a book about Gosnell, but the grand jury report is easily a compelling enough account for a TV movie.

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.”

GOSNELLKMugShot

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.

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.

Today Prolifers will gather in front of the Philadelphia Medical Examiner’s office at 321 University Avenue, Philadelphia, demanding a burial for the babies murdered by Gosnell. Activists will be kneeling in prayer in front of the Medical Examiner’s office with the names of all the babies that were murdered by Kermit Gosnell which are still at that office. Some will be risking arrest if they are asked to leave.

The 47 unborn children discovered three years ago in a Philadelphia abortion clinic are part of an emotional dispute over whether foes of abortion can claim the remains for burial. An alliance of anti-abortion groups is pressing Philadelphia Medical Examiner Sam Gulino to give them the remains, now that Kermit Gosnell is in jail and his clinic is closed. Gulino says his office does not release remains to unrelated third parties. He has assured Priests for Life, Pro-Life Coalition of Pennsylvania, Christian Defense Coalition, and others that the remains will get a proper and respectful disposition. Michael McMonagle, president of the Pro-Life Coalition, says the groups will pay for the burials and want to bring dignity to the deaths.

Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Washington, D.C. based Christian Defense Coalition, states,

“It is appalling and reprehensible for the City of Philadelphia to keep these children in storage at the Medical Examiner’s Office for up to 10 years after so many have requested they be released to them and given a proper and dignified funeral and burial.

“The official guidelines and regulations set forth by the Medical Examiner make it clear that any ‘interested’ party can put in a request asking for any unidentified person to be released into their care.

“Numerous national and local faith and community organizations have put in written formal requests for these children.

“The conviction of Kermit Gosnell on murder charges makes it clear that these babies are ‘persons’ and must be afforded the same equal rights as anyone else under the law.

“It is tragic and barbaric that government officials are playing ‘abortion politics’ with these innocent babies. These children were brutalized once by Kermit Gosnell. We are now demanding that they are not brutalized again by the City of Philadelphia.”
