Planned Parenthood in St Louis, Missouri may lose it’s license to commit abortions following numerous reports of emergency responses summoned to the abortion clinic and claims of health deficiencies by state authorities. If the license is rejected, Missouri could become the first state without a single abortion facility, a concern PP’s president called, “Not a Drill.” But, president Leana Wen is known for her over-the-top and often deceptive language surrounding abortion, prompting the Washington Post to grant her four Pinocchios for using fabricated stats on illegal abortion deaths.  For those interested in the truth on this topic, Live Action News has broken down this data in more detail previously, including also debunking Planned Parenthood’s false claims multiple times.

Planned Parenthood St Louis abortion facility

Instead of the media joining with Missouri Gov. Mike Parson in calling for PP’s dangerous St Louis abortion facility to remain closed until serious problems are corrected, they are instead lauding Planned Parenthood as almost invincible and incapable of placing women at risk. Of course, the media are the same ones that routinely censor reports of women being killed by abortion, and specifically those who die after abortion care at Planned Parenthood facilities.

 

 

A report published by Live Action News sheds light into the reason the media should be exposing PP, not protecting them:

“The real public health crisis is what’s been going on unchecked at this abortion facility for years, and which Wen conveniently doesn’t mention. This particular Planned Parenthood facility has had more than 72 ambulance calls since 2009. Not only are they killing preborn babies at this Planned Parenthood, but they’re also maiming women. In addition, multiple health violations have been racked up over the years at this one facility.”

Governor Mike Parson also gave detailed reasons for why Planned Parenthood’s license was not being renewed (watch here).

According to Missouri Gov. Mike Parson:

March 27, 2019: Statement of deficiencies issued by Missouri Health Department for violating the law and providing safe care for women….Health officials identified a series of deficiencies…which needed to be addressed prior to their license renewal deadline of May 30th.

April 3, 2019: State health department started investigation into PP St Louis relating to series of incidents raised concerns about:

  • Quality of care
  • Patient Safety
  • Statutory and Regulatory compliance

April 11, 2019: State Health Department requested (in writing) to conduct interviews with seven physicians performing abortions at Planned Parenthood St. Louis

April 16, 2019: A PP attorney responded saying PP was not obligated to make physicians available for interviews with state health department officials.

April 22, 2019: A PP attorney informed state health department regulators that physicians would now be represented by their own counsel and Department should attempt to schedule interviews with their individual attorneys.

May 16, 2019: PP submitted license renewal applications, final day to be accepted by DHSS a deadline PP was aware of. State Heath Department notified 5 or the 7 physicians declined to cooperate with the interviews.

May 28, 2019:  Two PP Physicians agreed to cooperate with interviews.

“Planned Parenthood has been actively and knowingly violating state law on numerous occasions…In addition, there is concern for the standard of care due to the fact that the significant medical evidence showing at least three failed surgical abortions…records provided by PP indicate that these failed abortions also include the patients returning to PP after realizing they were still pregnant. In another case, a patient’s safety was jeopardized and rushed to an ambulance from PP where an emergency surgery was needed…” Missouri Gov. Mike Parson stated.

The Governor said that the following concerns needed to be addressed prior to any license renewal:

  • Planned Parenthood’s apparent disregard for the law
  • Failure to complete complication records
  • Accuracy of medical records.

“No judge should give special treatment to PP in this instance…If you break the law- there are serious consequences. If you don’t provide a standard of care that ensures the safety of women you shouldn’t be allowed to operate, its that simple…” Gov. Parson said.

2016:

2013:

 

According to the pro-life watchdog organization, Operation Rescue:

[T]he number of medical emergencies requiring ambulance transport have increased dramatically.

Most recently, three women were transported by ambulance to hospital emergency rooms in a 22-day timespan ending on May 15, 2019.  Other recent medical emergencies occurred at RHS Planned Parenthood on April 24 and April 26, 2019.  In all, 74 medical emergencies have been documented at this Planned Parenthood in the past ten years.

The most common abortion complication suffered by women transported by ambulance from RHS Planned Parenthood is hemorrhaging, a life-threating, yet avoidable, condition.

The RHS Planned Parenthood has experienced other major issued in the past year or so:

  • Inability to conduct chemical abortions due to failure to meet new safety regulations.
  • CEO Mary Kogut resigned last October and has not been replaced.  Postings several other positions also remain unfilled.
  • Failure to expand abortions into Springfield and Joplin as planned, due to inability to meet licensing requirements.
  • Up to a 20-day wait to obtain surgical abortions, as confirmed by Operation Rescue, perhaps because the current medical director is moonlighting at an abortion clinic in Illinois.
  • Failed inspection report in 2017 with multiple safety violations, and where the Medical Director questioned whether hand-washing between glove changes was a new standard.

Below is the press release from the state regarding Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility in St. Louis.

Planned Parenthood files unprecedented lawsuit against Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services with licensure renewal process still ongoing

 Planned Parenthood refuses to fully cooperate with investigation into concerns about patient safety

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Planned Parenthood has filed suit against the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) while its application for renewal is still under review.

DHSS received Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region’s application for renewal on Thursday, May 16, 2019, which was the last day that it would be accepted by DHSS. The St. Louis, Missouri, facility’s license, which is renewed annually, is set to expire on May 31, 2019. Last year, the organization submitted its renewal application on April 27, 2018, with a May 31 renewal date.

Planned Parenthood’s statutorily required inspection occurred March 11-13, 2019, and an investigation has been ongoing since. Planned Parenthood was notified in early April that due to ongoing concerns about potential deficient practices, interviews would need to be done with the physicians providing that care. These concerns are not limited to, but include: 1) violations of Missouri law; 2) violations of applicable Missouri regulations; 3) standard care for patient safety as evidenced by, but not limited to, at least one incident in which patient safety was gravely compromised; 4) failed surgical abortions in which patients remained pregnant; 5) concerns about quality control and communication with a contracted pathology lab; and 6) failure to obtain informed consent.

The continued refusal of several physicians to cooperate in interviews regarding DHSS’s ongoing complaint investigation obstructs the State’s ability to verify that this facility is in compliance with all requirements of applicable statutes and regulations, which Missouri law requires DHSS to do before renewing a license.

Only on May 22 did Planned Parenthood change their previous position and agree to comply with Missouri regulations which require pelvic exams at the screening prior to abortions so that information learned from the pelvic exams could increase the safety of the procedure.

On May 28, only after filing their lawsuit did Planned Parenthood again change another previous position to comply with Missouri law that the same physician who does the preoperative counseling will also perform the abortion.

As of May 29, Planned Parenthood has still not agreed to full compliance.

“DHSS will continue to act in good faith to do our statutorily required duty to regulate facilities to help keep people safe and assure compliance with the law,” said Dr. Randall Williams, director of DHSS. “The unprecedented refusal by Planned Parenthood to fully cooperate as they have in the past heightens our regulators’ concerns about what their investigation has revealed to date.”

 

Medical waste company fined for disposal of out-of-state aborted babies

Posted in Disposal of Fetal remains, Fetal Tissue, Planned Parenthood Fetal Disposal with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 18, 2016 by saynsumthn

An Indiana news station has discovered that aborted babies are being shipped from out of state to an Indianapolis medical waste facility in violation of a state permit.

Medassure fetal aborted babies

Rafael Sanchez, a reporter with Indiana ABC affiliate RTV-6 said that the Indianapolis medical waste company MedAssure will be fined by the state after receiving aborted babies from an out-of-state Planned Parenthood clinic.

The information stemmed from a report filed by the Attorney General of Missouri on the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St Louis. The report details 317 abortion performed by Planned Parenthood in June of 2015, many raging from 13 – 20 weeks gestation. The report also showed that Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of St Louis Region paid Pathology Services in Brentwood, Mo. over $4000.00 for the disposal of medical waste. The company has since been the focus of protests by pro-life activists.

Planned Parenthoof Paid Pathology

According to the document, the AG’s report also revealed that the Indianapolis MedAssure was receiving Planned Parenthood’s aborted babies.

Sanchez explains:

    Documents point to Pathology Services Incorporated of Missouri and MedAssure of Indianapolis.

    Medassure fetal aborted babies 2

    “Under their 2012 state permit, MedAssure can handle and treat medical waste and transport the waste to a final disposal facility. It can’t handle or process fetal remains.

A spokesperson for Indiana Department of Environmental Management told LifeSiteNews that they have levied a fine of $9,000 against MedAssure for violating its contract with the state.

“The company was not permitted to receive this waste, was specifically asked to not receive this waste” in the contract, explained the spokesperson, who also said that MedAssure has been “incredibly cooperative with us and agreed to resolve” the issues “quickly,” LifeSite News reported.

MedAssure’s Executive Vice President, Joseph Delloiacovo released the following statement to RTV-6, stating that MedAssure:

    Is fully aware of its permit conditions and fetal remains cannot be processed at our facility. Our policy prohibits taking such waste.

    It should also be understood that the generator is responsible for segregating waste items before packaging the waste for pick-up by MedAssure according to federal and states law and other provisions under contract.

The controversy over where abortion clinics can ship medical waste has been an issue for years following the discovery of medical waste companies like SteriCycle discarding of fetal remains. The issue was raised at a recent National Abortion Federation Conference where undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress recorded a Michigan abortion clinic owner joking that she wanted to take aborted babies from her clinic into a field and burn them because she lacked places to dispose of them. In addition, Renee Chelian, owner of the Michigan abortion facility chain, Northland Family Planning, suggested to her audience that the disposal problem belongs to the women who pay her to abort their babies.

As Live Action News previously reported, Chelian, who worked with Stericycle, said she was overwhelmed with the remains of baby parts stockpiling in her facility freezers. For five months, Chelian described how aborted babies were packed in freezers, and she had to find a way to discard of them. No company seemed willing —at first— to help her staff dispose of the remains. She told the members at the 2014 National Abortion Federation conference that her clinics could perhaps buy a plot in Detroit for incinerators and if all else failed, the garbage disposal was also an option:

    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…”

After the Missouri investigation of Planned Parenthood revealed their association with the Brentwood Pathological company, St Louis Today reported that Mike Hoey, Missouri Catholic Conference executive director, sent a letter to Pathology Services Inc. saying its “lab workers are part of the assembly line of the abortion industry.”

    “By agreeing, in advance, to take the human remains of these children aborted while in utero, you are facilitating this taking of innocent human life,” Hoey wrote. “Knowing this, your only moral recourse is to say “NO, we will no longer cooperate, we will no longer help kill unborn babies.”

Marc Tuttle, spokesperson for Right to Life of Indianapolis noted that the investigation by RTV-6 is shedding light on fetal disposal in Indiana just as the state legislature is considering new legislation that would require humane disposal of all babies killed through abortion.

House Bill 1337 passed the Indiana House last week and was recommended to the Senate where it is currently under consideration.

St Louis satanic temple raises funds for abortion

Posted in Abortion Sacred, Satanists, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 4, 2015 by saynsumthn

We know satanists believe abortion is sacred as this blog has documented several times.

Now, a St Louis, Missouri Satanic Temple is raising funds to get a woman an abortion.

Satanic Temple ST Louis

According to sources, the Satanic Temple has raised enough money via the GoFundMe crowdsourcing website to pay for a southwest Missouri woman to travel to St. Louis for an abortion.

Satanic Temple 72 our waiting period abortion tweet

The GoFundMe site has since been removed.

Satanic Temple abortion GoFundMe

the elusive “Mary” for which the fund was created, has, with the help of the Satanists created a “Satanic Religious exemption form” which reads in part:

    My body is inviolable and subject to my will alone….

    As you know, state law requires a waiting period after I first receive counseling before I can undergo an abortion. I regard a waiting period as a state sanctioned attempt to discourage abortion by instilling an unnecessary burden as part of the process to obtain this legal medical procedure. The waiting period interferes with the inviolability of my body and thereby imposes an unwanted and substantial burden on my sincerely held religious beliefs.
    This letter constitutes my acknowledgment that you have notified me of the state mandated waiting period, but demands that you do not abide by this obligation because the waiting period offends my sincerely held religious beliefs, which take precedent.

Satanic Religion exemption abortion

Lucien Graves, leader of The Satanic Temple explained their reasons:

    As Satanists we believe in individual autonomy, personal choice, and the inviolability of one’s own body. Further, we believe one should be free to make one’s own decisions, uncoerced, based on the best available scientific evidence, whether or not the science comports with the religious and/or political views of others….

    The waiting period is another facile and insulting attempt at making abortion services less available. With a dearth of abortion clinics, some women are made to travel a great distance for services they then have to wait three days to receive, adding the expense of accommodations and time away from work.

    We created an exemption form for the waiting period that we expect Mary will deliver upon her arrival. We will seek to pursue legal action if that waiver is not respected.

I think it’s horrible in a lot of ways to make someone have that amount of waiting period,” the woman, who asked that we not use her real name, tells Daily RFT.

Lucien Grieves Satanic abortion

Lucien Greaves, the pen name/pseudonym for Doug Mesner, spokesman for The Satanic Temple, published an op-ed where he also stated, “Recently, a member of The Satanic Temple informed us that she soon intends to present our exemption letter as she seeks an abortion in the state of Missouri. However, in Missouri, women seeking abortions are faced with a problem far more dire than that of insulting and inaccurate state propaganda: they are also required a 3-day (72 hour) waiting period for the procedure. With only one clinic in the state, those traveling a substantial distance often are forced to take significant time away from work while paying for overnight lodging. In response, we are providing an exemption from the waiting period, similar to the exemption from Informed Consent materials… We shall seek to defend our exemptions in court if they are not respected. After decades of attempting to define “religious liberty” in terms of combatting rational family planning, it’s time that the conservative religious right learns that religious liberty works the other way, too.”

Candy company creates Chocolates for Choice for abortion giant Planned Parenthood

As Valentine’s Day approaches love birds in the St Louis region will be looking for fine chocolates to send their partners.

But, if they are pro-life they may want to avoid Kakao Chocolates.

Kakao CHoch PP

According to posts placed on the Facebook page of Planned Parenthood of the St Louis Region, Kakao Chocolate created “Chocolates for Choice” to help fund abortion giant Planned Parenthood.

Planned Parenthood’s December 2nd post reads, “Send a gift of Kakao chocolates to yourself or a loved one and proceeds will go to Planned Parenthood in St. Louis. Kakao packages are available in three sizes, and start with a gift of just $25. Find out more here: http://www.chocolates4choice.com”

Kakao Chocolates has locations in Jefferson, Maplewood, and Clayton Missouri. On their website, the chocolate company claims they , “strives for nothing short of the finest chocolate experience. We use only the finest all-natural ingredients no artificial flavors or additives to create exceptional artisan chocolates and confections.”

According to Planned Parenthood of the St Louis Region’s website, they offer abortion services and information.

By creating chocolates to fund Planned Parenthood the message Kakao really sent through their candy, in my opinion is that they support abortion on demand. So, I would encourage pro-lifers to exercise their “Choice” and avoid this company!

Planned Parenthood finds doc to do abortions again in Missouri

Posted in Planned Parenthood with tags , , , on July 31, 2013 by saynsumthn

In June of 2012, Life News reported that Planned Parenthood abortion business in Columbia, Missouri, had suspended abortions at its facility due to a lack of abortion practitioners willing to travel there to do abortions on a regular basis.

Now this newscast indicates the abortion giant will again perform abortions, stating they found a new abortionist they refer to in the female gender!
