Former manager Melody Meanor and former nurses Joyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich spoke at a legislative hearing on Monday, claiming the Planned Parenthood clinic located on Shipley Street in Wilmington is unprofessional, under-trained and unsafe.

“Women are exposed to potential infection of any kind you can imagine that can be passed from one patient to another,” Vasikonis said.

During their testimony, the women claimed the privacy of patients was jeopardized, that they were asked to falsify employee records, that medical assistants were poorly trained and that certain women in need of certain medications after abortions often didn’t receive them. They also claimed that the facility failed to inform up to 200 women that they tested positive for gonorrhea and chlamydia, according to Delaware Online.

All three nurses insist that their motivation for testifying is not political. In fact, they say that they are pro-choice and believe in the national mission of Planned Parenthood. They also believe however that the Wilmington clinic is putting the lives of women at risk.

OSHA previously issued several citations against the clinic and the State Health Department found violations during an inspection. However, the Department allowed the clinic to stay open, satisfied with its attempts to make things right. The former employees however, don’t believe the state is looking close enough.

“I believe that Planned Parenthood should be fined and closed until all dangers are addressed,” Werbrich said. “Again, I’m going to state, I am pro-choice.”

Former Planned Parenthood of Delaware employee , Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, worked as a registered nurse at Planned Parenthood in 2012. She calls them “startling similarities between Planned Parenthood and Gosnell.

Dr. Gosnell was notorious in the Philadelphia/ Wilmington area – he ran a filthy clinic and was convicted of murder after performing late term abortions where babies were born alive and killed. I was not aware of such horrifying happenings at Planned Parenthood of Delaware The similarity between the case of Kermit Gosnell and Planned Parenthood of Delaware is that they both operated extremely hazardous abortion clinics, and that their respective states refused to close them despite the repeated warnings. I believe that Planned Parenthood should be fined and closed until all dangers are addressed.”

Three pro-choice former employees of Planned Parenthood of Delaware become whistle-blowers against the organization. This event is a legislative hearing in Wilmington organized by State Senator Gregory Lavelle (R), and State Representative Gerald Brady (D).

Melody Meanor was a manager of family planning in Wilmington. Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich worked as a part time nurse. Joyce worked as a nurse but temporarily acted as a manager of surgical abortions.

Here is what the YouTube description says:

Dr. Carole Meyers, currently an auditor for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, audited the local affiliate, Planned Parenthood of Delaware, in 2008. During her audit, she told Joyce that discovered that Dr. Eric Schaff, the then-Medical Director, was performing illegal after hours abortion at night after the support staff had already left.

Dr. Meyers told the Planned Parenthood of Delaware Board of Directors to fire Dr. Schaff because of the danger a patient might be killed during these late night abortions. However, she never notified the Board of Medicine or the police about the illegal behavior of Dr. Schaff. This is a violation of the statutory reporting obligations of Dr. Meyers.

Dr. Meyers ultimately was hired in 2011 as the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Delaware, taking the job of Dr. Schaff, who she had helped get fired in 2008. During this time, Dr. Meyers simultaneously served as the Medical Director of Planned Parenthood of Delaware and as an auditor for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. While Dr. Meyers was the Medical Director, Dr. Timothy Liveright served as the physicians in charge of performing abortions. Dr. Meyers was in charge of supervising Dr. Liveright.

Dr. Liveright had his license suspended in 2013 by Attorney General Beau Biden (D) for being “a clear and immediate danger to the Delaware public” because of numerous abuses of patients (hitting patients, doing abortions in less than eight minutes, lying patients on operating tables still wet from the blood of previous patients, playing peek-a-boo with patients, etc). While he was abusing patients, Dr. Meyers was supposed to supervise him and protect patients. However, most of her time was spent auditing other Planned Parenthood affiliates in an alleged attempt to ensure patient safety at those other Planned Parenthoods. Meanwhile, Dr. Liveright was “a clear and immediate danger to the public” in the clinic Dr. Meyers was supposed to manage.

All of the problems described in the video occurred under the watch of Dr. Carole Meyers. However, the state has thus far refused to suspend her license. She remains an auditor for the Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
