Ohio abortionist lies to patient says he cannot remove laminaria or stop abortion

Posted in Abortion clinic, Abortion clinic sued, Abortion complication, Abortion lawsuit, Abortionist, Abortionist and Live Birth with tags , , , , , , , , on July 23, 2014 by saynsumthn

An Ohio abortion doctor has been sued after he told a woman that she could not reverse her decision to abort her child once the procedure had begun.

Ruddock

According to the lawsuit, on March 2010, the woman referred to as SS, who is from West Virginia, traveled to Ohio to receive an abortion. She went to Dr. Martin Ruddock at the Center for Women’s Health, Inc., in Cleveland. SS was in her second trimester of pregnancy.

Abortionist Ruddock first saw SS on March 16, 2010 when she signed six informed-consent forms at his office. The woman claims she signed the forms prior to ever seeing Ruddock and that required counseling was not provided 24 hours in advance of the abortion procedure.

SS was informed that because of her stage of pregnancy, Ruddock would have to first place dilators, known as laminaria, into her cervix during the first two days, and that the abortion would not be
completed until the third day, which would have been March 18, 2010.

On March 16, 2010, Ruddock examined SS and placed three laminaria into her cervix. During the procedure, SS experienced pain and uncertainty and indicated that she wanted to stop.

Ruddock informed her that it was not possible. According to SS, Ruddock informed her that her water had already broken; that he could not stop; that she could not revoke consent once the procedure had begun; and that if the procedure were stopped, the child would suffer from mental retardation. The procedure continued, and the laminaria were inserted. An abortion procedure report was used to document the procedure.

The next day, SS went to another doctor who removed the laminaria and informed her that her water had not been broken. On March 18, 2010, SS returned to Ruddock’s office and was given a refund after signing a “laminaria removal release.”

SS’s pregnancy resulted in the birth of a healthy baby.

SS sued Ruddock and the trial court granted Ruddock’s motion and dismissed the complaint and all claims raised therein with prejudice. This was based on the language of the laminaria release that the patient signed. So SS took her case to the Ohio Supreme Court which noted that the language in the release did not exempt Ruddock from liability concerning violations of Ohio’s informed consent law, medical record release laws, fraud and misrepresentation claims regarding the pregnancy itself, or spoliation of evidence claims. In May of 2014 the Ohio Supreme Court found there were reasonable grounds for the appeal and reversed the lower court’s decision.

Girl posts video detailing her abortion records

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , on May 27, 2014 by saynsumthn

A young woman has uploaded a video which details her abortion records.

The first image she shows is the ultrasound picture of “her baby,” which she had on June 4, 2010 at approximately 8 weeks.

You can see the child’s head and eye socket,” she tells her video audience.

Ultasound

Her baby was 10 weeks and 4 days when she had the therapeutic D+C abortion on June 18, 2010. She points to what she thinks is her baby’s heart or feet: “you can actually see the outline of the child …,” she points out.

Poits to heart feet

Theraputic D+E

Her records indicated that she had a medical abortion by pill at the age of 22:

Pill Abortion

She says, “MY surgeon was DR. F Fellow, I’ve never met him…

Surgeon ab

She says she met a man through an internet dating site and became pregnant. Her reasons for ending her child’s life was anxiety and depression. The video is difficult because the girl seems sad. It is ironic when you look at the image she has used to identify herself on YouTube as twin babies:

Katie Lynn

As she ends the Video, she says she’d like to show her other ultrasound pictures and points to what she calls “The Baby”

Other ULtrasound Pics

She then sets down a plastic fetal model and tells her viewers, “And this is roughly how big my baby would have been when I had my abortion..” She then sets down some precious feet showing the exact size of a ten week old unborn child.

Baby BIg

It is unclear if she regrets this decision or not. She appears to be saddened by it, but gives no commentary one way or another.

As women seeking abortions request their medical records days, months, or even years later, one has to wonder what seeing the ultrasound pic of their now dead child does to them. Perhaps that is why looking at this image before the abortion is so crucial !!!

Patient writes complaint against Planned Parenthood after switching to ObamaCare

Posted in Planned Parenthood Navigator, Planned Parenthood ObamaCare with tags , , , , , , on April 17, 2014 by saynsumthn

A patient who just switched her insurance to ObamaCare has posted a complaint against Planned Parenthood in South Austin on the Complaint Board:
S Austin PP

SHE WRITES:
“I’ve been going to Planned Parenthood for over two consecutive years now for my birth control shot. I just recently got health insurance under Obama Care. I went three months ago, using my insurance for the first time. I asked about the insurance over the phone before I drove down there for my appointment. I was told my insurance was accepted. I arrived and was told I couldn’t be seen that day because the doctor couldn’t ‘work on me’ with the insurance I have. So I rescheduled for a new day. It’s hard for me to schedule an appointment in the first place because of work, and finding child care for my four year old. I went back on my rescheduled day, and walked out unseen that day because the lady at the counter couldn’t find my insurance. I talked with her over the next THREE days, she then told me they DID accept my insurance but they couldn’t figure out how to find it or use it, but I was scheduled another appointment and given my shot for free. I signed a waiver stating so.”

Complaints Board

I now, three months later, due for my next shot, called to make an appointment. I called twice on two different days trying to schedule an appointment, during business hours and the phone just rang and rang, my call never got picked up. I finally get a hold of a person and am immediately put on hold for 10 minutes. For the two years I’ve been coming here, I have scheduled an appointment every time. This time, a very unpleasant sounding lady tells me they do this on a walk in basis. I’m confused, but ok whatever, ill walk in. Before I waste my time driving down there, I ask her about my insurance. I told her I had issues using it last time, I wanted to make sure everything was going to be ok with it this time. I was told very rudely that no, they do not accept my insurance. I tried to explain to her that I was told by another employee last time that my insurance was accepted. She kept cutting me off until I finally told her thanks anyway. I called back and asked by name for the lady who helped me last time, I was put on hold for about 5 minutes and the same rude lady picked the phone back up and told me she was with a patient and could she get my name and phone number and would have the lady call me back. I gave her the information and the call was ended. I then immediately called my insurance provider to see if they could tell me if planned parenthood accepted my insurance. The lady told me yes, they do accept this insurance. I told her my issue, and she asked me if I could hold and she was going to call them. She asked to talk to the manager and left a message with him. I never received a call back from planned parenthood, and called back again today. I spoke with a different lady this time, and she transferred me to the manager, she said he was walking in the office as she was transferring my call. It rang maybe twice and went to voicemail. I left a message with my name and phone number asking him to call me back. Have not received a call back and I left the message 4 hours ago. I am SO disgusted with this customer service. They sure showed me they don’t care about me or my business, and I have taken my business elsewhere. The customer service given to me was unacceptable. I work in customer service and I KNOW if I treated someone the way I have been treated, I would be getting complained against, and at the least written up by my supervisor.”

This review came from a Planned Parenthood employee who worked the Planned Parenthood clinics in the San Francisco Bay Area:

PP Employee Review

There is poor and little training for employees who are doing things like counseling patients, taking blood pressure, etc. Much of this is left to on-the-job learning and that can be risky when dealing with sensitive health care issues.

Review by Planned Parenthood of Omaha customer:
I have had very bad experiences with Planned Parenthood myself and wondered if others have also. Never in my life have I been treated so poorly and seen such rude clinical staff. Over the course of a few years they mismanaged my account telling me my insurance was being billed and paying. Then I get hit with a $300 bill. I was told insurance did not pay any of my claims. Come to find out the clinic never submitted anything to insurance. In attempting to resolve and research the problem I have been called names and hung up by the staff at Planned Parenthood. Needless to say I am no longer a customer and very vocal about their poor service and untrained staff. Thanks so much Planned Parenthood of Omaha.

Patient review of Planned Parenthood of Wilmington, NC

I agree with you. Planned Parenthood, I thought, was supposed to be helpful to women, but instead they treat us with such disrespect and their rude attitudes need to be put in check. I was in a very horrible situation where my baby had died inside of me and my body wasn’t rejecting it. I was early, around 8w 2d, but the baby was 6w 5d when it died. My doctors told me to go to Planned Parenthood to have it removed since my body was still thinking I was pregnant when it wasn’t. I even had the forms that said it was not a viable pregnancy, and that there was no heartbeat. Things were ok, at first. Until it came time for the procedure, and I wasn’t even numbed for it. I felt the whole thing, crying, screaming… and I wasn’t alone, the other girls in the other rooms were screaming just as loud as I was. If the men in the waiting room heard this, I guarantee that the procedure would not have gone down like that. I was restrained and I kept telling them that I wasn’t numb, and they didn’t care. When the doctor finished jamming the rods in me and then removing my already deceased baby, he got an attitude… he told me to “knock off the theatrics, I was doing you a favor.” He stormed out, and then started talking trash about how “white girls are pathetic because they get themselves into messes that I have to clean up and then they can’t even shut up when this procedure doesn’t even hurt.” Doesn’t hurt???? YEAH RIGHT!!! I went back to my regular doctors office, and I had bruising, abrasions and severe swelling. My regular doctor couldn’t even believe that I wasn’t numb for the whole thing. Planned Parenthood is horrible!!! If my child didn’t die in-utero, your damn straight that I would have kept it. My husband and I have been trying for 4 years. Now, I am too scared to even try again for fear that I might have to go through this again. This doctor needs his license removed!!! Planned Parenthood of Wilmington, NC needs to close their doors.

Patient review of Planned Parenthood in Lubbox , TX

Wow…although I am not surprised by the complaints but I am surprised at extent of the bad experiences. I visit the center in Lubbock, TX. and thr staff is rude and unprofessional. First I had an appointment scheduled for 9:45, I waited almost 2 hours before I was seen by a practitioner, 2 HOURS!!! I am actually sitting on the exam table right now as I am writing this using my phone. Before I got in here, I was asked to fill out paperwork that I was asked to fill out everytime I came in about my medical history isn’t that was medical files are for? What do they do with my medical paperwork trash it when I leave? I even tried to explain to the front desk lady that one on the forms I was given to apply for financoal assistance was denied last time so thrre was no need to fill it out but she would not let me get a word in edge wise…telling me to just go fill out the forms. I am about to put on my clothes and walk out cuz I have to be at work in an hour. I will NOT be using their services EVER again!

Patient review of Planned Parenthood in Kennewick, Wash, says she was not treated with respect and given a choice- it was ABORTION or the door:

I visited the Planned Parenthood in Kennewick, Washington and was very disturbed by how I was treated. I have never been to a planned parenthood and I will never go back. I am now 13 weeks pregnant and at the time of my visist was not sure what to do. I have a stable relationship, good job, and own my home, but the thought of having a child was scary (as I’m sure it is for many people). I was neither committed to the idea of keeping the baby nor aborting it, but simply wanted some information on my choices. When I made the appointment I made this very clear to the person I spoke to. I arrived for my 5:00 appointment to find the waiting room very full. I waited for about 30 minutes and being pregnant needed to use the restroom. Upon leaving the restroom my name was called. I greeted the employee and apologized explaining that I was in the restroom. She then informed me in front of a room of about 50 people that I would need to “pee in the cup to confirm my pregnancy and I better drink some more water”. I told her my pregnancy was already confirmed (I had already established a dr. and had ultrasound photos) and I simply wanted to get more information on my options. She then said loudly, again in a room full of people that I “could not schedule my abortion until I confirmed the pregnancy”. I am typically not the crying type, but immediately burst in to tears and left. I was under the impression that Planned Parenthood was meant to be a support for women. However, the disrespect and embarrassment they caused me will never be forgotten. I have been encouraged by several family members and friends to seek a lawsuit due to HIPAA violations. I am in the medical profession and well aware of such guidelines, however never having to have anything to do with Planned Parenthood again seems like a better option at this time. There are plently of clinics out there who care about their patients and help to make choices. Don’t make the mistake that I did. I am keeping my baby and am petrified, but I know that I can make it work.

Patient review of Planned Parenthood in Hazelwood Missouri – clinic had poor sanitary conditions?

Last year I went to the Planned Parenthood in Hazelwood Missouri because I couldn’t get an apt at the one close to my house.. I showed up on time for my appointment and did not get in to a room for 45 minutes and waited for the nurse practitioner for 2 hours in the room! I was getting an STD test done, if that’s not nerve racking enough, but waiting that long. The NP was VERY un hygienic, she put on her exam gloves, typed on her computer, left the room opening the door WITH her gloves on! Not only that there was hair all over the exam table from previous patients, I wanted to throw up and cry all at the same time! And to make matters worse, when she gave me her diagnosis, she was very rude and almost cheerful about it, what the hell is that! I was mortified. I refuse to pay the rest of my bill, but I cant find anyone to tell that to, I just give shoved around the phone lines.. If I knew it was going to be that horrific, disgusting and even more expensive than my OB I never would have went.

Review for NY Planned Parenthood

PP NY

She goes on to say, “The whole time I was there, there was another room full of young girls in surgical gowns and it was literally one in, one out…as someone who is pro-choice, I hate to say this, but the place was like a factory. It both really upset me and freaked me out.

If you want to have a mindless abortion without any consequences, this is the place for you (as long as you don’t mind the 8+ hour wait). If you actually want to be treated decently and like someone with feelings, do NOT go here. Ask your doctor for a referral to an OB-GYN.”

PP NY 2006

August 31, 2006
If you want to get treated like you walk the streets… Ladies! Please PLEASE do not go here if it’s your first time having an abortion or any other important proceedure. The nurses and attendants, no matter how nice or accommodating you attempt to be in the circumstances, will treat you like you are wasting every second of their time. There was not an ounce of care at this care center. I watched nurses/ assistants scream at women to get up out of their chairs when they were recovering from general or local (extremely painful proceedure) anaesthetic. I spent half an hour with a girl who threw up in a trash can whilst app. 10 medical assistants watched or yelled at her for throwing up (from her nausea). I also had a friend who was rushed to the emergency room for incapacitating uteral contractions after the same proceedure this year. Unknowing or unaware (I have no idea which) the attendants at Margaret Sanger Center are collectively the worst healthcare assistants I’ve encounted in my life. It was absolutely traumatizing and I know for a fact I am not alone.

I have never written a review before but the whole experience was difficult enough. All women in this position ought to know.

Patient review of Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, NY, claims she was treated badly because she was black !

PP Hampstead NY treated bad Black

They are lucky they even have 1 star. The office in Hempstead, NY is the worse office. I went there on a Saturday to buy the plan B pill, they told me they were closed and stop taking patients at 2pm. There website says they close at 3, there recording says they close at 3, and the sign on the door says they closed at 3. The low life receptionist who was there had a nerve to say oh well to me and told me to go to a regular pharmacy where they charged u double the price. I asked if there was any other planned parenthoods open she gave me a look like why r u asking me. She was like I don’t know and then turned her back to me. the problem is that they have these young girls running the office and majority is Spanish. I am not racist because I have many Spanish friends but they treated me nasty because I was Black. But I’m bringing this to the news media.

And another patient writes, “The receptionist staff at the Planned Parenthood in Hempstead, NY is very rude and unprofessional. They have attitudes, roll their eyes, and even huff and puff over the phone when you ask them questions. They tell you to call if you have any questions or concerns but when you call you’re on hold forever and when they answer they are not helpful at all. Then they tell you they will call you back in an hour. If you’re calling to find out if you might have an emergency they should be able to give you some kind of answer. The service is just very poor.

Florida abortionist gets slap on the wrist after slapping face of a patient

Posted in abortion clinic safety, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortion clinic worker arrested, Abortionist, Abortionist arrested, Pro-choice law breakers, pro-choice violence, Randall Whitney with tags , , , , , , , , on August 28, 2013 by saynsumthn

whitney_booking_warrant_09-22-2010-240x300The Florida Board of Medicine has given a “slap on the wrist” to Randall Whitney, an abortionist who was arrested in 2011 and charged with aggravated battery for slapping a pregnant woman across the face prior to an attempted abortion procedure at Orlando Women’s Center.

As reported when the arrest occurred by this blog:

Long-time Volusia County, Florida abortionist Randall B. Whitney was arrested by Orlando Police inside the Orlando Women’s Center after he slapped a woman patient while preparing her for an abortion procedure.

rwhitney_arrest_citationWhitney Arrest Page 2

Below is a transcript of Orlando Police arresting officer J. Hughley ( patient’s last name is removed):

I,officer Hughley was sitting inside the office when I heard a OWC [Orlando Woman’s Center] patient run out of one of the rooms screaming advising the doctor has slapped her. I followed the patient outside and she advised in a sworn written statement: she went into the exam room to get an abortion procedure and the doctor was trying to find a vein to give some valium. She Amanda ______ advised the doctor had poked her three times trying to get the needle in the vein. She told him the needle was not in the vein and it started to burn. Amanda advised she started screaming. The doctor took the needle out and told her to shut up because she was scaring other patients. Amanda advised she got up and told the doctor she wanted to leave, so she stood up and the doctor slapped her on the left side of the face. Amanda advised that’s when she left. She also advised she did not give the doctor permission to slap her and wishes to press charges. Due to the needle or medicine Amanda’s fingers began to turn blue, so OFD (Orlando Fire Department) was notified. When I (officer Hughley) went back inside the building, the doctor (Dr Whitney) was sitting in the front office and he advised he did slap Amanda because she was being very uncooperative and he was trying to calm her down. Assistant Sonia Merced was inside the room with Dr. Whitney, but refuse to say what happened, nor did she want to write a statement. Dr Whitney refused to write a statement also. Amanda’s face was red on the left side of the face. Whitney was arrested and transported to central booking for aggravated battery.

Whitney was arrested and taken to jail and later released on bond.
Florida Case#: 2010-CF-004271-A-O

According to FORERUNNER:

When the case was finally decided by the Florida Board of Medicine on August 12th, 2013, Whitney was reprimanded and received the following disciplinary actions.

An administrative fine of $7,500 and other court costs totaling $8,041.31 to be paid within 30 days from the date this Final Order is filed.

The completion of 3 hours of continuing medical education (CME) in the area of medical ethics and completion of the Laws and Rules course sponsored by the Florida Medical Association (FMA) within one year from the date the Final Order is filed.

Within 90 days from the date of entry of the Final Order, Respondent shall submit to an evaluation by the Professionals Resource Network (PRN) and present the evaluation to the Probation Committee.

Whitney’s medical license status was changed from CLEAR/ACTIVE to OBLIGATIONS /ACTIVE. According to the Florida Department of health this means that

… the licensing board or department has disciplined the licensed practitioner and a penalty, which may include restrictions and/or additional requirements, was placed on the licensed practitioner. The licensed practitioner may practice his/her profession in the state of Florida under the conditions specified by the licensing board or department. Practitioner is obligated to update his/her profile data (FL DOH).

Operation Rescue has reported that Whitney has faced license suspension and probation in the past and has been accused of illegal late-term abortions beyond the limits set by law by improperly using ultrasound to determine fetal age. Whitney defiantly closed his Daytona Beach abortion clinic rather than comply with laws governing clinic safety.
