A long standing abortion facility in Michigan, the Eastern Women’s Center/Women’s Center of Michigan has suddenly closed its doors with no apparent warning. Pro-life activist Lynn Mills came upon the announcement when looking at Google maps. Mills followed up by calling the abortion facility, located in Warren, where she was told by a staffer that the facility was closed and they were diverting patients to their Sterling Heights location. No other details about the closure were given to Mills.

The facility was owned by Jacob Kalo, who at one time operated five facilities in the state. After selling his Lathrup Village facility this past summer, the number now stands at three. In 2o14, that facility, the Women’s Center of Southfield, had its license suspended for several health and safety violations, according to officials.

The following year, an abortion patient from the Lathrup Village facility went public about her gruesome late term botched procedure and perforated uterus. According to a 911 transcript obtained by Mills, the abortion was committed by Kalo’s contracted late trimester abortion doctor, Reginald Sharpe.

The woman reached out to Mills and detailed during a national radio interview, how parts of her almost 24-week preborn child had been pushed through the uterine perforation, and the abortionist was having difficulty removing them. Mills told Live Action News that the woman recounted how the abortionist had been training another doctor to do the later term procedure that day.

While the patient waited for the emergency responders, she said the doctor changed his clothes and “Swiffered and cleaned up. Then, they placed an IV for the EMS people and kind of scrambled around.”

The woman stated in a radio interview, “And I saw this red bucket on the floor and – uh – what I saw was just….” The woman, unable to continue, had seen her dismembered baby, explained Mills.

Mills told Live Action News that the Warren facility building had been up for sale for several years. Pro-lifers outside Kalo’s facilities have had interesting interactions with the abortionist.

Mills regularly warns patients outside the facility about the abortionist, and according to the abortionist himself, numerous women have come forward with complaints about him since pro-lifers began warning patients with signs (shown above). In the video below, Kalo claims the accusations are false.

A July 25, 2018 review written by an alleged patient and  published on Vitals.com accuses the abortionist of conducting a pelvic exam with an “ungloved hand” as well as other inappropriate conduct:

… During my last visit when I was being brought into the exam, I wasn’t told to undress from the waist down. When Dr. Kalo and the two nurses/nursing assistants came into the room, that’s when he told me to undress. So, I had to undress in front of three people with zero privacy. He didn’t use stirrups on me and just had me lay on the exam table with my legs up. He didn’t wash his hands prior to my exam, only put one glove on, and did my entire pelvic exam with his ungloved hand. Additionally, I had the paper cloth over my waist, and this doctor literally cupped my butt after he was finished with the pelvic exam. I’m talking about the grabbing of one’s butt that your significant other does to you too. He also conducts his breast exams in a peculiar manner. Not your normal breast exam… He did not wash his hands after the pelvic and breast exams, and neither did the nurses/nursing assistants who were in the room with him. I wished I would have send [sic] something, but I was so dumbfounded that he would forget to put a glove on and grabbed my butt that I froze…

Mills said Kalo’s facilities were recently licensed by the state, which enacted regulations only a few years ago. But Kalo has been able to operate his facilities regardless, while awaiting inspections.

“He’s most likely cutting his losses now,” Mills said.

Shortly after the state passed clinic licensure regulations, Mills claims over a dozen abortion facilities closed rather than face the occasional (every three year) inspection by regulatory officials.

“This is just another victory for pro-lifers and babies,” Mills stated.

10 babies born alive after abortions in 2015 – in only 3 states

Posted in Babies Born Alive, Dreaded Complication with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 18, 2018 by saynsumthn

By  |  Via LiveActionNews.org 

Documents from three states indicate that babies may be born alive after abortions more often then we might expect. Published data for 2015 shows that ten babies in just Florida, Minnesota, and Michigan were reported to have been born alive following an abortion attempt. The documents indicate that many more may have been born alive after abortions in previous years.

FLORIDA

report from the State of Florida reveals that in 2015, at least four babies survived abortion attempts that year. The information comes from a report entitled “ITOP Report of Infants Born Alive, By County Where Terminations Occurred, Florida,” on file at the Agency for Health Care Administration.

Image: Four babies born alive after attempted abortions in Florida in 2015

Four babies born alive after attempted abortions in Florida in 2015

According to a spokesperson from the AHCA, ITOP stands for “Induced Termination of Pregnancy.” The published data (which only goes back to 2014) showed that three babies survived an abortion in Alachua County and one in Jackson County in 2015. That same year, 5,132 elective abortions were reportedly performed on women during the 13th to 24th week of pregnancy. What happened to the babies is unclear, as no additional information was available from the report.

Florida law requires that “[a]n infant born alive during or immediately after an attempted abortion must be immediately transported and admitted to a hospital pursuant to s. 390.012(3)(c) or rules adopted thereunder.” The law also requires that any employee of a hospital, physician’s office, or an abortion clinic who is aware of a violation of the born-alive law report it.

Based on data reviewed for this article, most of the cases of live births following an abortion were reported by a hospital rather than a clinic. But public reports show that abortion clinics have experienced the “dreaded complication” of live-birth abortions as well. Live Action News has detailedseveral instances.

One chilling report from an abortion clinic came in 2005. It was documented in the heart-wrenching phone call below, made after a Florida woman contacted 911, reporting that her friend’s baby was born alive and left to die:

The mother told blogger Jill Stanek that the infant, named Baby Rowan, was delivered alive in the toilet.

“The very moment I saw my son was alive, nothing else in the whole world mattered but Rowan’s safety! I fell immediately in love with my baby boy and was afraid of nothing that I ever feared before. Only one thing mattered to me: getting Rowan help. I begged, repeatedly.”

She then relayed to Stanek how she waited 11 minutes for help to arrive while clinic workers turned ambulance drivers away claiming the call was placed by a hysterical patient.

Baby Rowan

MINNESOTA

The state of Minnesota also requires that abortion staff report whether any abortion resulted in a born-alive infant.

In 2015, there were five born-alive incidents, according to a report of induced abortions presented to the legislature. The cases occurred in “two hospitals, included in Table 1.1 as ‘Independent Physicians,’” according to the report.

Minnesota state law requires that:

When an abortion is performed after the twentieth week of pregnancy, a physician, other than the physician performing the abortion, shall be immediately accessible to take all reasonable measures consistent with good medical practice, including the compilation of appropriate medical records, to preserve the life and health of any born alive infant that is the result of the abortion.

Despite this fact, the report states that all of the infants were reported to “have lethal fetal anomalies incompatible with life and thus no measures were taken to preserve the life of these infants.”

Sadly, none of the babies survived. They were instead left to die, based on their disabilities.

MICHIGAN

report entitled “Number of Reported Induced Abortions by Evidence of Life,” from the State of Michigan, indicates that in 2015, one baby survived an abortion attempt.

The information can be found under Abortion Statistics, published by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS). To view the report, scroll under the heading “Abortion,” then “Michigan Occurrences, by Evidence of Life.”

A spokesperson with MDHHS said the term “present” in the report pictured below indicates that life was present in the baby, upon the complete expulsion or extraction from the mother. The reports are sent in anonymously, and MDHHS does not conduct any follow-up to determine what occurred or whether the child survived.

Image: Babies’ evidence of life in Michigan, 2015

Babies’ evidence of life in Michigan, 2015

Information published in the State’s Physician’s Handbook on the Reporting of Abortions shows that abortion providers must answer, “Did the Fetus Show Evidence of Life When Separated, Expelled or Removed From the Woman? (yes/no).”

It goes on to define a live birth from an abortion:

Evidence of life is constituted by breathing, beating of the heart, pulsation of the umbilical cord or definite movement of voluntary muscles. A fetus showing such evidence of life must be reported as a live born, in which case BOTH AN ABORTION REPORT AND A CERTIFICATE OF LIVE BIRTH MUST BE FILED.

Additional abortion reports from previous years show that a number of babies showed “evidence of life” after abortions in Michigan:

Image: Michigan abortion evidence of life, 2011

Michigan abortion evidence of life, 2011

  • 2008 – Out of 25,970 abortions, life was present in one baby, and one was not reported.
  • 2009 – Out of 22,357 abortions, life was present in one baby.
  • 2010 – Out of 23,307 abortions, life was present in one baby. and two were not reported.
  • 2011 – Out of 23,366 abortions, life was present in five babies, and seventeen were not reported.
  • 2012 – Out of 23,230 abortions, life was present in one baby, and two were not reported.
  • 2013 – Out of 26,120 abortions, life was present in two babies, and six were not reported.

Clearly, babies are being born alive following an abortion, but Michigan is not following up on what abortionists or their staff are doing to these babies or on what is happening in the unreported cases. According to MDHHS, “not reported” means that neither yes nor no was checked on the required form.

Born-Alive Protection Acts

In 2002, the Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act passed both Houses of Congress with bipartisan support, due in part to testimony from Stanek, formerly a labor and delivery nurse, who once held a born-alive infant in her arms after the baby survived an abortion performed at an Illinois hospital.

Stanek’s grueling testimony reads in part:

One night, a nursing co-worker was taking a Down’s syndrome baby who was aborted alive to our Soiled Utility Room because his parents did not want to hold him, and she did not have time to hold him. I could not bear the thought of this suffering child dying alone in a Soiled Utility Room, so I cradled and rocked him for the 45 minutes that he lived. He was between 21 and 22 weeks old, weighed about 1/2 pound, and was about 10 inches long. He was too weak to move very much, expending any energy he had trying to breathe. Toward the end he was so quiet that I could not tell if he was still alive. I held him up to the light to see through his chest wall whether his heart was still beating. After he was pronounced dead, we folded his little arms across his chest, wrapped him in a tiny shroud, and carried him to the hospital morgue where all of our dead patients are taken.

Today, thanks to born-alive protections in some states and federally, there has been at least one documented occasion where an abortion provider requested emergency assistance after a baby survived:

This case is believed to be an outlier, as life-saving efforts dedicated to a baby who is born alive after an attempted abortion are rare.

In fact, comments made by a former Planned Parenthood medical director shed light on the real situation that often occurs in abortion clinics and even in some hospitals. Dr. DeShawn Taylor, who was caught in undercover footage by the Center for Medical Progress, told the CMP investigator that identifying “signs of life” after a baby survives an abortion is contingent upon “who’s in the room.”

Dangerous Michigan abortion clinic may reopen

Posted in Abortion clinic, Abortion Clinic Closed, Abortion Clinic Inspections, Abortionist with tags , , , , , , , , , on November 13, 2015 by saynsumthn

An abortion clinic in the State of Michigan which lost its license to operate for failing to pass basic health inspections may be given the chance to reopen. Abortionist Jacob Kalo currently operates four abortion clinics in Michigan. On November 21, 2014 the state closed a fifth abortion facility after the state suspended the license of Kalo’s Women’s Center of Southfield for failing to pass several health inspections.

womenscentersouthfield-suspendedmill

According to pro-life activist Lynn Mills, who has researched Kalo’s record, the abortionist took over the Southfield abortion facility from troubled abortion provider, Abraham Alberto Hodari. Under Hodari the facility was one of only a handful of abortion clinics in the state that held a license. In just over one year of taking over the clinic, Mills said Kalo’s Southfield facility failed to pass several state inspections. As a result, in 2014, the state suspended the license of the Southfield clinic with the goal of a permanent suspension.

Kalo  Jacob

An October 7, 2014 letter from the state details the violations found at Kalo’s clinic during one of the inspections:

• No hand hygiene was observed being performed by Dr. Kalo. (Not before or after
ultrasound exam, Not before gloving for procedure or after removing gloves at end of procedure)
• No vaginal prep done. (Betadine was available in OR)
• No inspection of the POC (Productions of Conception) was observed by Dr. Kalo or qualified person assisting the physician prior to disposing of the pathologic specimen by the medical assistant.
• Patient’s belongings-purse, shoes, and clothing stored in an open plastic basket in OR during procedure.
• During procedure the RN was observed going into the medication supply cupboard with contaminated gloves. The RN drew medication from a multidose vial into an unlabeled syringe and gave it to Dr. Kalo who administered it, without the RN showing him the vial for verification of medication provided.
• No hand hygiene observed by Medical Assistant after removing gloves after washing dirty instruments used during the procedure.
• At end of procedure the Medical Assistant used a common bucket (kept in the OR) containing tap water to suck fluid through the bloody used suction aspiration tubing from the procedure. (Staff confirmed the bucket contained no disinfectant, and the bucket was being used for multiple patients.)
• Following the procedure Dr. Kalo was observed handling the bloody used suction tip and tubing in the instrument cleaning sink without gloves or proper PPE.

Despite the serious violations, the state has now decided to allow Kalo’s Southfield abortion clinic to reopen. This news comes to Live Action News, in a document provided by Mills.

Kalo Southfield abortion clinic reopenKalo Southfield abortion clinic reopen 2

According to the September 30, 2015 agreement issued to Kalo from the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, the state is dissolving it’s suspension of the abortion clinic based on a few stipulations. First, the order requires that Kalo pay the state $25,000. According to the Stipulations Agreement, the clinic will remain suspended until Kalo complies all applicable requirements of the Public Health Safety Code. The state is also requiring the Southfield abortion facility to pass at least one unannounced inspection. Then, if the clinic reopens it will be placed on probation for at least one year.

Mills told Saynsumthn that what the state is doing by potentially allowing Kalo’s facility to reopen is putting the women of Michigan at risk. Mills also said that in response to the state suspending the license of Kalo’s clinic she filed a complaint with the state’s medical licensing board detailing what the state found in their inspection. And, Mills later discovered from a FOIA request provided by another source that there are two additional allegations filed against the abortionist. The open records reads in part:

    “There are three open allegations on file regarding Jacob Kalo as follows: File No. 135808 was opened December 16, 2014, File No. 136671 was opened March 2, 2015, and File No. 137803 was opened June 2, 2015. The files currently remain open.”

Kalo failed to maintain basic proper hand washing and hygiene requirements, that alone should set off warning flags and alarm everyone,” Mills points out. Although the document says that the state is requiring that Kalo’s other four abortion clinics be inspected, Mills said that since the law requiring abortion clinic inspections and licensing went into effect in 2013, the state has yet to inspect those facilities. To date, Mills said that the Southfield clinic remains closed.

Woman creates baby burial gowns from donated wedding dresses

Posted in Babies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on November 7, 2015 by saynsumthn

A Michigan woman is turning wedding dresses into infant burial gowns to donate to grieving mothers when their newborn baby passes away. The death of an infant child usually so unexpected that parents rarely have clothes to bury them in, and this is where Angels Above Baby Gowns steps in.

Dawn Lafferty President of Angels Above Baby Gowns

Founder Dawn Lafferty, said that she created her organization in May of 2014 after watching the story of a mother in Washington State whose son was still born. “They brought her son to her wrapped in a wash cloth and when she got home she decided to use her wedding gown to make and angel outfit for him…That was the start of what later became “Angel Gowns,” she said.

Because of Lafferty’s ability to sew, she immediately searched to see if there was a group in Michigan that she could join. Unfortunately, Lafferty said that she could not find one so, she used Facebook to launch her new mission. According to Lafferty, the response was instant and within hours of posting her idea on that social media site several of her friends told her they would help. Shortly thereafter Lafferty had a basement full of volunteers to start sewing bridal dressing into precious infant burial gowns. She was soon flooded with donations.

“In the first year everything was funded by me,” Lafferty said. But, today Lafferty said her group relies on loving donations from women who want their wedding dresses used for Angel Gowns. As a result of the interest, she has created a list of drop off locations and mailing locations depending on where the donor lives. “We ask that if they would like to ship the gown that it be shipped directly to our studio. We also recommend that the donor remove part of their gown to keep as a momentum,” she said.

In just a year and a half, 2000 members have joined Lafferty’s online group where they coordinate drop off locations throughout the entire state of Michigan. “The volunteers collect the gowns for us and bring them to our studio when they have enough to make the trip worthwhile” she stated, “I have about 30 volunteer seamstresses along with photographers, volunteers that launder and dismantle gowns, a cutting department that is responsible for cutting out all gowns in varies sizes and genders, hand sewers, embellishers, pressers and a packaging department and shipping.”

Once Lafferty’s group finishes the gowns, they put them into little gift packages and donate them to hospitals. The typical package includes a burial/angel gown, a blanket, a hat, headband or bonnet, a burial wrap (which can be used to store ashes if a baby is cremated), and angel ornament, a piece of angel jewelry made from the beads and pearls from a donated gown, a pink and blue infant loss awareness ribbon, and a card.

AABG typical donation

In addition to the Angel Gowns, Lafferty said she hopes to raise funds to purchase a Cuddle Cot. “A Cuddle Cot is a cooling system that is used once the baby is born still to prevent the normal process of deterioration and allowing the family to have more time with the baby. We are also accepting monetary donation to purchase a Cuddle Cot,” Lafferty explained.

To do this, Lafferty said she has received a generous donation of brand new wedding dresses which she hopes to sell to young women on tight budgets, something that will help the new brides as well as grieving parents. “We have met some lovely people who have donated brand new high end gowns to us, so that we can offer them to brides for a donations to help fund our group, “ Lafferty said.

Angels Above Baby Gowns has grown substantially since Lafferty watched at that Washington State news report months ago. Today, Lafferty said they are even outgrowing their space, “We have outgrown our space and work area and are hoping for someone to donate a building for us to use as storage and work space,” she said, “we are all volunteers and we do this from our hearts.”

Unearthed audio has Senator telling abortion owner not to perjure herself regarding accusations of fetal harvesting

Posted in Aborted Babies, Aborted Baby Trash, Abortion Clinics, Abortionist, Abortionist dumps fetuses, Center for Medical Progress with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 2, 2015 by saynsumthn

A leaked tape recorded by the Center for Medical Progress shows a Michigan abortion owner admitting that she once talked to “researchers” during her quest to find ways to dispose of the bodies of the babies her clinic aborted. Renee Chelian who operates the abortion clinic chain, Northland Family Planning Center, which performs abortions up to 24 weeks has previously denied under oath that her facility is involved in the harvesting of aborted babies.

Renee Chelian (Image link here)

In a secretly recorded speech given by Chelian before a Michigan National Abortion Federation member session Chelian jokes about how difficult it has been to expose of fetal tissue, laughingly suggesting to her audience that the disposal problem belongs to the women who pay her to abort their babies. (note, Chelian’s conversation begins at the end of one video and the beginning of another video.)

(Video 1 begin ) “We were really tempted to give the fetus back,” Chelian is heard saying in the audio.

(Video 2 begin at very beginning) “We can do that. Um, we thought, we’ll give it to everybody in a gift bag – they can take it home, figure out what to do with it. It’s their pregnancy and why is this our problem?”

Below is video of what the abortion owner told the NAF audience next:

At approximately 3:49 into the video above you can hear Chelian say, I talked to the researchers and they said we want your tissue, we don’t want all of your tissue.”

She later states (9:27 ) , “What ever you’re doing now there’s not a research company that will take all of our fetal tissue because they don’t want it all. And…you know this is an issue we are going to have to grapple with.”

Additional comments in the video are transcribed here:

(Begin 2:05)

    “So in coalition, we started working with hospitals who didn’t want to be seen with us. We met them in like Denny’s restaurant, there’s not even many of those left…We talked about you know what are you guys going to do. They were terrified of a public relations nightmare. That hospital actually had big freezers with breasts and kneecaps and gallbladders and abortions or miscarriages. Um and they put all their jars together, at some point. and they go to Stericycle unless the hospital happens to have their incinerator which is rarer and rarer. The guy from Stericycle was quick to point that out to me.

    “Um…Nobody wants to talk about dead bodies. Um, and nobody but me. I’m just saying. There was a point when Stericycle fired us that I had 5 months worth of fetal tissue in my freezers. We were renting freezers to put them in. It was all I thought about, was fetal tissue. Like, I was so consumed with fetal tissue, I was ready to drive to upper Michigan and have a bonfire. And I was just trying to figure out, you know, how I wouldn’t get stopped. Or, you know, how far into the woods would I have to go to have this fire that nobody was going to see me…I mean it was the worst, I dreamed about how to dispose of fetal tissue. And the garbage disposal was an option…”

    “There was a point where I actually hired someone from another clinic to come in and take 20 bottles and put it my garbage disposal. And I had to fess up to my staff that I did the thing I’ve been criticizing what all these other clinics are doing but I didn’t know what else to do. I was so desperate, that the antis found a way to close us.”

Renee Chelian Thumb

However, in recorded testimony provided by pro-life activist Lynn Mills, Chelian once called a Michigan Senator a liar after he insinuated her clinic might be involved in fetal tissue harvesting. Chelian appeared before the State Senate Committee in 2012 to oppose any abortion restrictions in the state. Michigan Senator Rick Jones then grilled the clinic owner over whether there was a lab that would harvest fetal parts at her abortion clinic. He said he was contacted by a witness who told him the abortion clinic had attempted to convince her to give an “anatomical donation.”

Have you ever suggested to patients or anybody in your office, your clinics suggest to patients that they could have a late-term abortion and then make an anatomical donation of part of the aborted baby?” Senator Jones asked Chelian.

Chelian then pauses before she finally responds by saying, “No.”

Senator Jones then reminds Chelian she could perjure herself if she is not being truthful, stating, I’d ask you not to perjure yourself. There are witnesses.”

Chelian continues to deny the charges brought up by Senator Jones several more times.

At the time of her testimony, MLive.com reported the exchange this way:

    Jones and Renee Chelian of Northland Family Planning Centers in southeast Michigan got into a testy exchange. Jones asked if the clinic had ever suggested to patients that they could have a “late-term abortion” and then make an “anatomical donation.” Jones asked if the clinic allowed a lab to “harvest parts.” Chelian said “no” in both cases and called Jones a “liar.”

Let’s recap – Chilean says this in CMP’s undercover sting:

    I talked to the researchers and they said we want your tissue, we don’t want all of your tissue.”

And denied being involved in fetal research before the Senate panel in 2012.

This would not be the first time an abortion worker has denied that they took part in fetal harvesting in the past,” says Mills.

However, while Chelian has admitted that her clinics have problems disposing of all the “fetal tissue” i.e. remains of human preborn children, and that she has talked to researchers, she has denied that her abortion chain has had any involvement in fetal tissue harvesting. While we have no way to know whether all or some of Chilean’s admissions are true or not, we do know that these undercover videos recorded by the Center for Medical Progress are exposing the attitude and in some cases horrific actions of the abortion industry.

Listen to the Audio from the 2012 exchange between Chelian and Senator Jones and read a portion of their exchange transcribed below:

Chelian: Well, first of all, I find you rather insulting.
Jones: Isn’t it true that you have a private lab to show up at your clinic to harvest parts?
Chelian: No! And sir, you are a liar!
Jones: No, I’m simply relating what witnesses have brought in.
Chelian: Well, you know, that is part of the problem with this bill is once again.
You have never taken the time to find out the facts because you are 100% wrong. I hope you are embarrassed and you’ll take that back to whoever gave you that information.
Jones: Well, I understand that you do routine gynecological tests for people 39 years old and younger but if they’re older than that, you won’t provide them; yet you will provide abortions.
Chelian: We provide routine gynecological care for the healthy younger population because we’re not specialists in menopause. And we don’t pretend to be specialists in something we’re not. Many doctors offices are specialists in menopausal care and generally after 39, it’s pre-menopausal and then going into postmenopausal care. That doesn’t have anything to do with the good gynecology care that we offer.
Jones: So you deny having LabCore and other groups come to your clinics to collect parts?
Chelian: We use LabCore when we want and any other lab when we suspect an ectopic pregnancy or a molar pregnancy. I’m not sure since you’re not a medical person that you know what that is and I would be happy to tell you if you would like to know. But those are medical problems that pathologists need to look at abortion tissue for. That is not what you suggested. That is in the continuum of good medical care.
Jones: Well, isn’t it true that they come when the babies are 14 to 24 weeks
Chelian: It is true that they come when we call them.
Jones: On Thursdays and Saturdays.
Chelian: You know, actually we do abortions more days than that. So you don’t have that right, either. They come…
Jones: Just the late-term ones.
Chelian: No, and actually we don’t really suspect an ectopic pregnancy in a late-term abortion. You really suspect an ectopic pregnancy when someone is early. Usually under 8 or 9 weeks and the patient, you, the patient, the amount of tissue that you obtain may be inconsistent with what you believe is the correct number of weeks and then we do a tissue float. Then we send it out to a lab and depending on what we find from the tissue float and beta which also goes out to a lab, you know it’s a blood test to measure hcg level. We can advise the patient to seek immediate care in a hospital. Or with her private doctor for the possible ectopic pregnancy or the discovery of a molar pregnancy, which is a pre-cancerous condition in which she needs to be followed up
with a doctor for about a year. Those are reasons that we use pathology labs – not as you …
Jones: Thank you for your testimony, Renee. I spoke yesterday with a witness who…
Chelian: Well, did you speak ? Did you call me…
Jones: spoke with your clinic and your clinic suggested that …
Chelian: Did you call me? Did you call..
Jones: a late term abortion they should make a …
Chelian: Sir, I suggest
Jones: an anatomical donation.
Chelian: You’re lying. Because…
Jones: No, I’m not. I spoke with …
Chelian: Well then your witness is lying. And if you would have picked up the phone and called me or the person who runs any one of my offices, and actually asked a question, honestly, instead of relying on some right to life flunky, with an agenda, who would lie to you because actually you should feel quite foolish right now. That is a lie. You were given false information and you’re accusing me of something, of doing something, based on your inability to get accurate information. I’m insulted
Jones: Renee, thank you for your testimony.

Renee Chelian Partial Birth Abortion 2

Renee CHelian Partial Birth Abortion

Chelian is a former head of the National Coalition of Abortion Providers. She was once called to task after her NCAP group’s executive director admitted that he intentionally misled the media about the numbers of partial birth abortions performed on healthy women. Ron Fitzsimmons, a spokesperson for NCAPS later said that he “lied through my teeth” when he stated that the late term abortion procedure was rarely performed only on women whose lives were in danger or in the case of the health of the preborn child. “It made me physically ill,” Fitzsimmons said.

‘The abortion-rights folks know it, the anti-abortion folks know it, and so, probably, does everyone else,” he said in an article in the Medical News, an American Medical Association publication.

Leaked undercover video footage shows a pro-life group talking with a Michigan Planned Parenthood abortion doctor who once described doing a later term abortion while pregnant.

The focus of the video is abortionist Lisa Harris who is described by the pro-abortion blog, RH Reality Check as a Assistant Professor in the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Women’s Studies at University of Michigan and is co-medical director of Planned Parenthood of Mid and South Michigan, and the Director of University of Michigan’s Fellowship in Family Planning. She is also a member of the board of directors for the Reproductive Health Technologies Partnership.

The never-before-released video footage recorded by the Center for Progress (CMP) video, was leaked by GotNews.com who said they got them after a hacker allegedly uploaded them to YouTube. CMP videos released to date have exposed Planned Parenthood’s horrific baby parts operation prompting some members of Congress to question their $528 million dollar a year funding by tax payers.

In a 2008 paper entitled, “Second Trimester Abortion Provision: Breaking the Silence and Changing the weeks Discourse,” Harris describes performing an abortion on a preborn baby at 18 weeks while she herself was 18 weeks pregnant.

Harris writes, “I went about doing the procedure as usual.

“I used electrical suction to remove the amniotic fluid, picked up my forceps and began to remove the fetus in parts, as I always did. I felt lucky that this one was already in the breech position – it would make grasping small parts (legs and arms) a little easier.”

The abortionist continued:

“With my first pass of the forceps, I grasped an extremity and began to pull it down. I could see a small foot hanging from the teeth of my forceps. With a quick tug, I separated the leg. Precisely at that moment, I felt a kick – a fluttery “thump, thump” in my own uterus. It was one of the first times I felt fetal movement. There was a leg and foot in my forceps, and a “thump, thump” in my abdomen.”

Lisa Harris

To recap, the now Planned Parenthood abortionist who was 18 weeks pregnant wrote that she, “felt a kick – a fluttery “thump, thump” in my own uterus” as while dismembering another woman’s 18 week preborn baby.

But wait…there is more.

In the same paper, Harris later writes about a 23 week abortion she performed and how she had to assemble the parts of the baby:

“As a third-year resident I spent many days in our hospital abortion clinic. The last patient I saw one day was 23 weeks pregnant. I performed an uncomplicated D&E procedure. Dutifully, I went through the task of reassembling the fetal parts in the metal tray. It is an odd ritual that abortion providers perform – required as a clinical safety measure to ensure that nothing is left behind in the uterus to cause a complication – but it also permits us in an odd way to pay respect to the fetus (feelings of awe are not uncommon when looking at miniature fingers and fingernails, heart, intestines, kidneys, adrenal glands), even as we simultaneously have complete disregard for it.”

Adding that after she dismembered a 23 week preborn baby she, “rushed upstairs to take overnight call on labour and delivery.”

The image you may have gotten from Harris is that she is some sort of Frankenstein. Her words conjure up pictures of a mad serial killer who can repeatedly kill without feelings of empathy for her victims.

When you meet Harris, you do not get the image of a heartless killer who would cherish her baby’s life while destroying another. In the video below, you get a sense that Harris is a decent person who simply cares for the health of women. That is, if you did not know with her own words what Harris does to these children.


In the footage released by GotNews.com, Harris speaks with an investigator from the Center for Medical Progress who asks her how far abortions are performed at her Planned Parenthood facility. Harris tells CMP, “19 and 6” meaning 19 weeks, 6 days. She also tells CMP that she has been involved in fetal tissue research in the past with, “independent / individual researchers” who needed either fetal tissue or organs.

Harris, who asked in her paper mentioned above, “What normal person does this kind of work?” told CMP that all “research project” at the Planned Parenthood affiliate she is with go through their VP of medical services. She also says that, “All research projects pay – pay for the effort but there’s never been like a per specimen fee.”

Harris appears distracted during the conversation but made it clear to CMP that she was most concerned about the “research regulations” that “get in the way.” She said her interest in using aborted children for research was that women be allowed to “feel good” about their abortion.

Despite wanting women to think they are doing something good when they have an abortion, Harris once admitted that there is violence in an abortion even suggesting that the label of abortionists as “butchers” might be accurate:

There is violence in abortion, especially in second trimester procedures…Instead of acknowledging what is on the placards, abortion rights activists may say in response to them that they are fake pictures or that abortions don’t really look like that. However, to a doctor and clinic team involved in second trimester abortion, they very well may. Of course, acknowledging the violence of abortion risks admitting that the stereotypes that anti-abortion forces hold of us are true – that we are butchers, etc.,” she wrote.

Baby harvesting Planned Parenthood receives support from Little House on Prairie star

A popular TV child star has come out in support of abortion biz Planned Parenthood, recently exposed for harvesting baby organs.

Melissa Gilbert, who starred in Michael Landon’s TV series, Little House on the Prairie, which still airs on many cable stations, showed her support of Planned Parenthood in several Facebook posts. Gilbert played the role of Laura Ingalls Wilder on the show. The 51-year-old Democrat has recently announced her campaign to run for Congress in Michigan.

Gilbert’s campaign is hoping to unseat freshman pro-life Republican Rep. Mike Bishop of Michigan’s 8th congressional district. On her Gilbert for Michigan website, she cites family as her reasons for running:

“I’m running for Congress to make life a little easier for all the families who feel they have fallen through the cracks in today’s economy. I believe building a new economy is a team effort, and we need to bring fresh voices to the table to get the job done.”

A spokesman for the Mike Bishop campaign has called Gilbert a “tax cheat,” noting that she owes $360,000 in back taxes to the U.S. government and $112,000 to California.

Melissa Gilbert can afford to have a stylist for her dog, but cannot pay her taxes,” he said in a statement.

Her values our out of whack with the district.”

Gilbert’s “values” include support for Planned Parenthood an abortion organization exposed by the Center for Medical Progress as being involved in a baby organ harvesting operation. But, despite CMP’s now public under cover videos of Planned Parenthood staffers negotiating to sell the body parts of babies they harvested, Gilbert publicly showed support for Planned Parenthood on her campaign Facebook page, by changing her profile picture to the #StandwithPP meme.

Then, on September 29th, Gilbert asked her Facebook followers to support “Planned Parenthood Action on #PinkOutDay”

Gilbert also publicly went after Bishop for his call to defund Planned Parenthood writing, “On Friday, Mike Bishop and the House GOP voted to defund Planned Parenthood. Their vote put health care for thousands of women in Michigan at risk. Let’s tell Mike Bishop and the GOP to stop trying to defund Planned Parenthood, and get back to work!
