Abortionist says using abortion as birth control ‘might be the best method’

The abortion industry pushes the idea that women need abortion for hard cases, that abortions are not being used as birth control and that repeat abortions rarely happen. A glimpse at the Twitter feed of one longtime abortionist reveals that the truth is very different from the propaganda being brought forth: abortions are being used as birth control, and repeat abortions are not frowned upon by the abortion industry.

Abortionist Diane Horvath-Cosper comments frequently on Twitter and commits abortions at Whole Woman’s Health in Baltimore, Maryland. A blog post at WWH’s website reveals that Horvath-Cosper has also worked for a dozen other facilities, including Planned Parenthood, according to the website AbortionDocs.org — so when she reveals why women obtain abortions, she holds a level of credibility.

This week, Horvath-Cosper published a series of posts on her Twitter page that claim two things:

  • Women use abortion as birth control.
  • Abortionists do not care if women have multiple abortions.

“One of the dumbest ‘arguments’ about #abortion: is it or is it not birth control? OF COURSE it’s #birthcontrol, because it prevents a birth. It’s definitionally not #contraception because conception has already occurred,” she wrote. “#ABORTION IS #BIRTHCONTROL, no matter how you personally feel about it. Let’s stop shaming and stigmatizing people for knowing what’s best for their own lives.”

Live Action News previously reported that the use of birth control does not necessarily prevent abortions:

study published by the Guttmacher Institute, along with a study by the British Pregnancy Advisory Service, found that more than half of the women who seek abortion reported using birth control during the same month they got pregnant. The Guttmacher findings, published on January 8, 2018, state that in 2014, 51 percent of the women who sought abortion were using birth control. Of that 51 percent, 24 percent were using condoms, 13 percent were using the pill and one percent were using a long-acting reversible birth control such as an IUD.

In another tweet, Horvath-Cosper says abortion is actually “the best method of birth control,” writing, “When we stop and listen – *really* listen – to people’s lived experiences, we discover that #abortion might actually be the BEST method of #birthcontrol sometimes.”

In another tweet, she added, “If people want to use #abortion as birth control, THAT’S 100% OKAY.”

Horvath-Cosper then reveals a truth rarely mentioned to the public: the abortion industry doesn’t care how many repeat abortions (even as many as twelve) a woman has. She writes, “And I don’t much care if someone has one #abortion or three or twelve. That person deserves compassionate care EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. No matter how many times. No matter what other people think about their decision-making.”

Live Action News previously documented that half of women who have an abortion have had at least one prior abortion already. The information came from a report published by the TARA Health Foundation. TARA’S philanthropy was recently used to prop up Whole Woman’s Health (WWH), where Horvath-Cosper works.

Repeat abortions are also believed to be a direct result of taxpayer funding.

Live Action News reported about another survey, which asked “a national sample of 8,380 women how many prior abortions they had.” The report found that slightly less than half of post-abortive women (44.8%) had not undergone just one procedure. They also found that taxpayer funding played a significant role in repeat abortions, as “[p]atients who paid for their abortion procedure with their own funds were less likely to have had a prior abortion than those who used health insurance or received financial assistance.”

Live Action News also noted that more than half of abortions in Medicaid-coverage states are taxpayer funded.

There have been numerous attempts to convince the American public that women only use abortion for “safety net” purposes. Data reviewed by Live Action News revealed only a tiny fraction of the so-called “hard cases” are the reasons given for why women abort. In 2014, the last year abortion data was published by Planned Parenthood’s former research arm, the Guttmacher Institute, half of women admitted they “did not want to be a single parent or were having problems with their husband or partner.” Other reasons women gave included “the inability to afford raising a child” and the “belief that having a baby would interfere with work, school or the ability to care for dependents.”

May 2018 Gallup poll found that 50 percent of Americans would want abortion to remain legal only under “certain circumstances.” It would then be difficult to believe that using abortion as birth control or having multiple abortions falls under that category, despite what aborionist Horvath-Cosper says.

The question is, will the media or polling agencies ever ask?

TARA Health Foundation funds abortion pills on college campuses in California

Abortion groups pledge $20M for abortion pills on California college campuses

UPDATE: SB320 passed and is on the way to the Governor’s desk

abortion pill

The push to force California colleges to provide deadly abortion pills via legislative mandate (SB320) is a dangerous idea. But it’s not being funded primarily by the state. Instead, two pro-abortion philanthropic organizations have pledged their support to the tune of nearly $20 million. According to the website StateofReform.com, SB320 needed at least $9.6 million in private funding “made available to a state fund January 1, 2019,” to move forward. As the bill is moving forward, it is relevant to ask who is behind those funds: “[T]he Funders’ Collaborative, led by the Tara Health Foundation and The Women’s Foundation of California, committed just under $20 million in funds to ensure that it will move forward at no cost to the state.”

According to a letter from TARA to the Chair of the California Appropriations Committee, TARA and The Womens Foundation “have collectively committed to just under $20 million dollars in implementation funds ready to be deployed as soon as this important bill becomes law. All of the funders will make donations to a California nonprofit organization that will be responsible for providing the $9.6 million to the California Commission”:

  • $200,000 grants to each of 34 public university student health centers
  • $200,000 grants to each of the 2 public university systems (UC and CSU)
  • $2.4 million to CCSWG for administering the fund

An additional $9.875 million dollars will be provided directly to appropriate technical assistance
advisors, and an evaluation team, as well as directly funding grants of $200,000 each for any
community colleges or private universities that wish to become ready to provide medication
abortion at their student health center.

TARA Health Foundation letter to fund abortion pills

TARA Health Foundation was founded by Ruth Shaber, an OB/GYN who held research positions at Kaiser Permanente. According to her online bio, she sits on the Medical Advisory Committee for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Shaber is also the chairman of the board of TARA’s Reproductive Health Investors Alliance, which partners with abortion organizations like Planned Parenthood, and has granted them $3.35 million.

Shaber claims the mission of TARA consists of “engaging peers to join in piloting and demonstrating the use of creative philanthropic capital to drive social and financial returns.” Those “social” returns include abortion on demand. According to its website, in 2014, Shaber named the foundation “after the goddess Tara in order to invoke the strength and compassion of a powerful female deity. Tara, a Hindu goddess later adopted in Buddhism, embodies both fierceness and maternal protection for all beings. She represents creation, wisdom, oneness and strength to overcome obstacles.”

How, exactly, does killing children via the abortion pill square with “maternal protection for all beings”?

The Women’s Foundation is led by Surina Khan, a previous staffer at the Ford Foundation and the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission. Though on paper, the Women’s Foundation advocates for a number of causes impacting women, the Foundation also gives grants to nonprofits that advance “reproductive rights” — code for abortion on demand.

According to Marj Plumb, DrPH, Chief Strategist of Policy Advocacy and Training at The Women’s Foundation, SB 320 came out of a training program called the Women’s Policy Institute. Plumb told StateofReform.com:

One of our teams a couple years ago had heard of the UC Berkeley effort [to petition the University to offer medication abortions at the campus health center] and felt that there needed to be a state law that required the state university health centers to provide medication abortion. So they partnered with Senator Leyva who helped to write the bill language and do the advocacy…

Primarily, The Women’s Foundation of California and Tera Health Foundation…helped to implement both medication and other types of abortion at Kaiser and at other facilities. Then we have other funders who are participating with us, several of whom wish to remain anonymous.

TARA’S philanthropy was recently used to prop up the abortion chain Whole Woman’s Health (WWH) while they raised legal challenges to Texas’s abortion laws, taking it all the way to the Supreme Court. An interview Shaber conducted with the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Shaber explained:

One example of how we’re using capital in an integrated fashion and creatively is in how we’ve supported Whole Woman’s Health, an organization of clinics led by Amy Hagstrom Miller… because of the burden of the litigation, they needed to open and close their clinics multiple times. As a result, they had a large amount of debt, and the only place they were able to get capital from was high-interest credit card debt. When we got involved in supporting them…giving them a grant, we were able to do this private debt. It’s giving us a 3% return over five years.

Recent FDA reports indicate that almost a dozen women have died from the abortion pill and a thousand have been hospitalized. Women suffering adverse effects of the abortion pill may claim to hospital emergency rooms that they are experiencing miscarriages rather than medication abortion complications — and this can skew the real numbers of reported complications, which may have a tremendous impact on the safety of vulnerable young women.

College campuses should not be partners in killing off future generations. And no matter how much money is raised, abortion will never be a good solution for women.

Abortion access focus while OB units close in Texas and nationwide

Posted in Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 1, 2016 by saynsumthn

While we await the decision from the Supreme Court in a case that challenged a pro-life law which forced the closure of several substandard abortion clinics in Texas, hundreds of Texas women have learned that they will have to travel further for obstetrical care after the closing of an OB unit in the state. The news will affect workers who are now slated to lose their jobs, and yet the media is relatively silent. Texas Health Presbyterian has announced that it will close its labor and delivery unit at its Kaufman hospital and even though it will negatively affect women’s health in the state, there is little outrage.

Flashback only a few years ago after when closing of several abortion facilities in Texas following sweeping pro-life legislation, caused an uproar and constant drum beat of outrage from pro-abortion women’s groups and the news media. But, alas, this unit is helping babies be born and not taking their lives.

Texas Presbyterian claims that there has been a decline in the number of women seeking their services and that is what has prompted their decision to close the Kaufman OB unit in May. But, less than a year after an Obstetrics Unit in another Texas city, Denton closed, a neighboring hospital said they noticed a huge increase in deliveries.

“It happened literally overnight,” nurse manager Dena Shapley told the Denton Record Chronicle in March. “We were delivering around 150 to 160 babies per month, and then literally that next month we were delivering around 240 babies per month.”

In Kaufman, the closure will force pregnant women to drive potentially long distances. The limited remaining options for care are at least 40 miles away, putting women and their babies at greater risk. The closure is also ending the practice of the city’s only OB doctor.

Despite hospital officials claiming this long distance will give women ample time to arrive at another obstetrics unit, a hospital nurse who spoke to Fox4 in Dallas said this will not help the women who have typically walked through the doors to deliver within minutes of their arrival. Even though the hospital says it will accept women into their Emergency Room, the nurse, who pointed out that the closure will affect mostly “lower socio-economic” women, claimed that no one will be available to do an emergency C-section. The hospital responded by noting that in cases of emergencies, the women would have to be transported by ambulance the 40 miles to Dallas.

Contrast this with the reaction that the closure of an abortion clinic has had in the state. When HB2 was passed, it did the unthinkable, so says the abortion lobby. The legislation sought to improve women’s safety by doing things like….requiring doctors who work at abortion clinics to have hospital privileges and also required abortion clinics to meet the standards of ambulatory surgical centers. (Oh…the horror!) Following the passage of the pro-life legislation, now being challenged before the US Supreme Court, the nation was exposed to a constant drum beat of criticism portraying images of women forced to drive for miles in order to obtain an abortion. This image (below) is a capture from Whole Women’s Health abortion chain blog who challenged the Texas pro-life law:

Whole Womens Health Abortion CLinic Statement

Since HB2’s passage, abortion enthusiasts have crawled out of the woodwork to decry the closures as a direct attack on their “right to abortion.” The media has been swift to measure the distance a woman might have to travel if their otherwise unfit abortion clinic were to close down. They predicted dire health consequences from the closures, none of which have materialized in the state.

Headline and screen grab from Slate Magazine article online

Yet, in light of the Texas OB unit closing, I hear only crickets when it comes to – oh- say “A woman’s right to a safe and simple delivery.” And, believe it or not, this is not a new phenomenon women are facing in the state or the nation for that matter [still hearing crickets?].

According to ACOG, “Rural America” is home to 22.8% of U.S. women aged 18 years and older. Each year, about 500,000 women in the United States give birth in rural hospitals, yet easy access to labor and delivery units has been declining.

Rural Obstetrics

A spokesperson for the Texas Presbyterian Hospital told Fox4 that many rural hospitals have closed their OB Unites in past years. This includes Ennis Regional Medical Center which discontinued obstetrics services in 2016.

According to a report, published in 2007 by the The Walsh Center for Rural Health Analysis, entitled Why Are Fewer Hospitals in the Delivery Business?, from 1985 to 2000, the number of hospitals that provided obstetric services dropped by 23%. As a result, more than one-third of counties in the US lacked hospital-based obstetric services in 2000, significantly more than the one-fifth of counties without hospital-based obstetric services in 1985.

A 2015 story published by NPR reported that 17 of 54 of Alabama’s rural counties have hospitals that offer obstetrics services, calling it, “one of the state’s greatest healthcare challenges.” Even more shocking, a 2016 study of rural hospitals nationwide found that 7.2 percent of rural hospitals in the study had closed their obstetric units. The authors who published their findings in the January issue of Health Services Research also found that:

    These units were smaller in size, more likely to be privately owned, and located in communities with lower family income, fewer obstetricians, and fewer family physicians. Prenatal care was still available in 17 of 19 communities, but local women would need to travel an average of 29 additional miles to access intrapartum care.

“The fact that closures continue happening — over time that means the nearest hospital gets farther and farther away,” Katy Kozhimannil, who co-authored the analysis told Kaiser Health News.

The disconnect between accessing obstetric services versus abortion services for women in the state Texas as well nationwide is glaring. It reveals that the majority of abortion defenders are more concerned about whether low-income and/or rural women access abortion rather than having access to a place where they can safely give birth. This displaced focus also reveals that the media is lax in reporting the full story of what is happening in Texas. And, while we await the Supreme Court’s decision on the Texas pro-life law, one thing is certain, the circus around abortion will continue while more obstetrics units close down.

Reverse restrictions on voting rights to save abortion and Planned Parenthood says Texas abortionist

Posted in Abortion clinic, Abortionist, Abortionist Admitting Privilages, Texas Abortion with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2014 by saynsumthn

According to a Texas abortion doctor, they need to reverse restrictions on voting rights, because the state has defunded Planned Parenthood and passed safety regulations on abortion clinics.

WWH Abortion clinic beaumont

Dr. Sherwood C. Lynn, who performs abortions at the Whole Women’s Health abortion clinic chain in Texas told Cosmopolitan that, “We’re one of the states who declined Medicaid expansion and defunded Planned Parenthood. If more clinics shut down in September, there are only going to be six clinics left in Texas. In order to change this, we’re going to have to get the Democratic electorate out to vote. We’re going to have to reverse restrictions on voting rights. Lawmakers are catering to a group of crazies. There is no regard for science or for women.”

Exactly what does this abortionist mean by reverse restrictions on voting rights anyway? Is this the extreme that these people will take us if we do not allow them to kill unborn children?

TX Aug 2013 Oct 2014

Abortion clinics in the state have closed at a rapid pace over the past year since the passage of HB2, a law that requires clinics to become ambulatory surgical centers and doctors who perform abortions to have hospital admitting privileges close by. The abortion industry says they cannot afford to make the changes required for the safety of the women they serve, so instead they have chosen to close.

Whole Womens Health along with other abortion providers in the state have filed a lawsuit to challenge the law. It is expected to be heard before the Supreme Court. While they await the high court’s decision to take the case, the Fifth Circuit has just decided that the law can be enforced.

The Fifth Circuit’s ruling on October 2 immediately allowed the state’s requirement that every facility offering abortion meet the same building requirements as hospital-style surgery centers to go into effect immediately.

A previous challenge to the law regarding the requirement that abortion doctors have admitting privileges has been upheld upheld by a panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and now the plaintiffs await a decision on whether the full appeals court will rehear the case.

So. the abortion industry is in an all out panic claiming that women will die because they cannot access abortions. Several counties in the state are now completely abortion clinic free and the industry has laid the fault at the feet of pro-lifers.

But, as blogger Jill Stanek has pointed out, the largest chain of abortion clinics in the country is not building new mega centers in the areas that the industry claims is in the most need for abortion services – they are building them in major metropolitan communities, such as Houston which just recently called an ambulance to transport a patient from their abortion center.

PP FTWorth

newpp DALLAS

In Texas, where there is now a dearth of abortion clinics thanks to pro-life legislation, Planned Parenthood is building two new clinics in Dallas and San Antonio – where two of the state’s last three independent clinics already exist (if and when the law takes full effect). The other five that are anticipated to remain standing all belong to Planned Parenthood,” Stanek writes on her blog.

In addition to the ambulatory requirements, abortionists say that they have a difficult time getting hospital privileges.

When HB2 passed requiring hospital admitting privileges by abortion workers, pro-lifers were ecstatic. They knew that hospitals were leery of accepting abortion doctors on staff.

In response, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton Texas, contacted members of the Texas medical community to warn them that the abortion lobby would try to recruit doctors who work at abortion clinics to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals.

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics explains, “What we did is created a post card called Hired Killers. This postcard is designed to discourage doctors from getting involved in abortion. We sent one of these to every doctor’s office in Texas. What we are trying to do is keep the waters stirred because what the abortion industry wants is to recruit these guys and tell them, you can just slide in and you don’t have to raise a big ruckus about it. We’re making sure that these doctors understand, there will be a ruckus and this is just the first shot of the ruckus that’s coming.

The second thing we did was send a letter to every hospital administrator in Texas,” Crutcher explains,”It’s designed to discourage them from granting privileges and be on the lookout for new doctors filing for hospital privileges who are not telling them they are working in an abortion clinic. Before you let them in, you better ask them if they are working in abortion because you don’t want to drag this hospital into the abortion controversy.”

Hospital Letter Texas

The campaign appears to be working as expressed again by abortion doctor Sherwood Lynn.
WWH

“Gaining admitting privileges has been difficult for me. First, you have to call the hospital and ask for an application. Then they send it to you, and you fill it out and send back. It seems simple enough, but if the address of the practice on the application is of an abortion provider or clinic, they won’t send you the package of materials required. You just can’t apply. I have one application pending in Austin, and I’ve been denied applications in McAllen and Beaumont. Whole Woman’s Health followed up to find out why, but we only got a letter from McAllen without any explanation. [There was no response from Beaumont.] There is no one in the Valley who has privileges who provides abortion care. The hospitals in McAllen are not necessarily Catholic institutions, but the board members are. I do have privileges at one of the hospitals in San Antonio, however, which is how I can continue to provide services at the Whole Woman’s Health [abortion clinic] surgical ambulatory center,”~ Abortionist Sherwood C. Lynn told Cosmo.

Pro-choice writer calls sterile abortion clinics intimidating

Posted in abortion clinic safety, Hospital Admitting Privileges, RH Reality Blog, Texas Abortion, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 29, 2014 by saynsumthn

RH Reality Blog writer, Andrea Grimes appears to bemoan the idea that abortion surgery and abortion recovery would take place in a “medical / sterile” even calling it: “intimidating?”

Andrea Grimes aother choice lost texas

Grimes writes in her latest blog post, “In recovery, when everyone’s wearing hospital gowns and laying on hospital-style stretchers, it’s more difficult to invite partners and friends to join patients after their procedures. There’s no herbal tea, no feeling of relaxing in a friend’s living room. Everything feels more medical, more sterile, more intimidating.”

Grimes is talking about her tour of the San Antonio Whole Woman’s Health abortion clinics by corporate vice president Andrea Ferrigno, calling it a, “small, purple-tinted clinic that feels like a cozy gynecologist’s office, and a fluorescent-lit surgical center with two icy operating rooms.


Just where was Grimes to tour Whole Women’s Health’s Beaumont abortion clinic forced to close by the state for horrific conditions?

Oh wait, Grimes did tour the facility, she writes later in the piece, “I thought of the warmth I’d experienced when visiting Whole Woman’s clinics in McAllen, Beaumont, and Austin to do interviews or take photographs for a story.”

WWH

But..apparently, like with Kermit Gosnell, there appears to be a disconnect between what pro-choice people report and what health departments report when it comes to the inside of an abortion clinic.

As I have blogged before and William Saletan says best there is a,”sisterhood of silence” among pro-choice and reproductive rights abortion advocates.

After all, when the Beaumont Whole Woman’s abortion center was inspected what authorities found was abysmal.

WWH Beaumont abortion clinic 13 health violations

According to a state inspection report, Whole Woman’s failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

The report says the facility failed to provide a safe environment for patients and staff. The suction machines which were used on patients had numerous rusty spots which, “had the likelihood to cause infection.”

Andrea Grimes and WWH

Back to Grimes.. her observation that abortion clinics becoming more medical and sterile will affect a woman’s ‘s overall attitude toward abortion has some merit. After all, according to Grimes women who have to get abortions inside “surgical facilities” take the “risks” to abortion more serious, and I add maybe affecting profits…..

Grimes goes on to describe Whole Women’s newest abortion clinic as it complies with the new state laws, “now that they’re performing procedures in the ASC—a facility that Hagstrom Miller acquired so that she could provide legal abortion care after 16 weeks, as previously required by Texas law before the coming requirements of HB 2 would shift all legal abortion care into ASCs, regardless of the gestation of pregnancy—the word “anxiety” seems to come up more often, said Ferrigno.”

Anxiety should be something a woman about to undergo surgery experiences – she should ask about the risks and the dangers to herself.

As Ferrigno says in the Grimes piece, “But it does change the perception and the experience of the woman.” Being in a hospital-like room, said Ferrigno, has a kind of psychosomatic effect on some patients. They’ll ask staff questions, said Ferrigno, like, “‘Is it more dangerous now? Will there be more pain?’

Now, with abortion clinics closing as a new Texas law requires abortion clinics to have the same requirements as other surgical centers – the call for the safety of abortion (which we heard even before Roe. V. Wade was decided) has been diminished.

From the pro-choice perspective, it is no longer about safety as confirmed by the words of former abortion clinic owner and current executive director of the Abortion Care Network Charlotte Taft, “The safety of abortion is not the issue,” she said. “The difference is going to be the atmosphere of the place, how you feel, and what philosophy they’re coming from.”

BLAM! Pro-choice claim that women will die if abortion is restricted in Texas dismantled!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Life Dynamics Logo

“If thousands of women have already been victimized by this cruel and heartless legislation, where are the rotting corpses we were promised?”~ Life Dynamics president, Mark Crutcher

Today, Life Dynamics Inc., a national pro-life organization located in Denton, Texas, has responded to claims issued by abortion supporters that thousands of women will die if abortion clinics close as a result of a newly enacted Texas law known as HB2.

Mark Crutcher TX ab Clinics July 2014

In a video just uploaded to YouTube, Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics responds, “Last year, the Texas legislature passed a bill raising the health and safety standards for the state’s abortion clinics. And even though the requirements of this new law are minimal, only about half of the state’s 36 abortion clinics have been able to comply. The rest have shut down and, come September, another dozen or so facilities are expected to close. That is when the second phase of this law will go into effect and it will require abortion clinics to meet the same medical standards as every other ambulatory surgical center in the state. Naturally, some abortion enthusiasts are describing this requirement as “draconian.”

“Now, a report has been released showing that, so far, almost 5,000 fewer abortions have been done as a direct result of this legislation. Naturally, the Texas abortion lobby has spiraled into a state of apoplectic shock over this. To hear them tell the story, Texas women are now on the endangered species list. Of course, this mirrors the dire warnings they issued back during the debate on this bill. At that time, they basically said that, if this legislation was passed, we would not be able to walk down the streets of any city in Texas without tripping over the rotting corpses of women killed because they could not find an abortionist.

“Fair enough. But here’s my question. If thousands of women have already been victimized by this cruel and heartless legislation, where are the rotting corpses we were promised? I realize it’s still early, but if this is going to be the holocaust these people predicted it would be, then 5,000 denied abortions have surely produced at least a small pile of dead bodies somewhere.

So where are they? And what are the victim’s names? Inquiring minds want to know.”

Two more abortion clinics close in Texas

Posted in Abortion Clinic Closed, Abortion clinic closed by state, Texas abortion clinics with tags , , , , , , , , on March 6, 2014 by saynsumthn

WWH Closes

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that the last two abortion clinics outside of big Texas cities will close Thursday because they can’t meet the restrictions placed on facilities under the state’s new abortion law.

WWHweb1

Whole Woman’s Health in Beaumont and McAllen will close after providing abortions in the areas for a decade. Amy Hagstrom Miller, president of Whole Woman’s Health, which operated five abortion clinics before the law went into effect, said the provision requiring physicians to have admitting privileges at a hospital within 30 miles of the clinic was proving the most problematic.

Amy Hagstrom Miller

Miller said hospitals near her McAllen clinic refused to grant her physicians’ applications for privileges. Some hospitals in the area require their privileged physicians to live nearby. Others require a current physician to co-sign applications for privileges, which many are unwilling to do for fear of being targeted or stigmatized.

In Beaumont, one 75-year-old physician secured privileges, but a second one could not, Miller said.

There were 44 #abortion clinics in Texas in 2011; now, there are 24. Nineteen clinics have closed since this summer, Miller, told the Texas Tribune.

This is indeed good news, but it is being spun by a pro-abortion news media.

The media has been rather sympathetic to Whole Womans but look behind the scenes may shed light into the real reason Miller is closing these centers.

BEAUMONT:

WWH Beaumont abortion clinic 13 health violations

In October the Beaumont Whole Woman’s abortion centers was inspected and what authorities found was abysmal.

According to a recent state inspection report, Whole Woman’s failed to have some of the same life-saving tools on site that Convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell was cited for in Pennsylvania.

The report says the facility failed to provide a safe environment for patients and staff. The suction machines which were used on patients had numerous rusty spots which, “had the likelihood to cause infection.”

WWH abortion clinic health violations Oct 2013

In October, investigators with the state of Texas cited the Beaumont abortion clinic for 13 health and safety code violations.

The report says, “the facility failed to have the EKG monitoring equipment ready if an emergency situation occurred…”

The clinic was also cited for expired drugs on the premises:

The Whole Woman’s Health clinic in Beaumont had the most violations of the records inspected by the Texas Tribune. Auditors found that a sterilization machine was not working properly and that nurses were not trained to recognize the problem. Whole Woman’s Health said they took steps to remedy the problems and had its correction plans accepted by the state.

But now they are reporting they are closing- hmmmm.

MCALLEN:

Whole Woman McAllen

In March of 2011, Operation Rescue documented widespread abortion abuses at a dozen Texas abortion clinics. Among the worst offenders was Whole Women’s Health. The McAllen office discoveries were particularly disturbing. Dumped in the trash were the bloody refuse of several abortions along with the names of patients and other private information.

Among the discoveries at several WWH clinics, Patient logs (click here to view) and other records were discovered on Whole Women’s Health forms and the bloody remains of abortions came in bags with other documents bearing Whole Women’s Health’s name. Operation Rescue has made examples of this evidence public.

In December of 2011, Operation Rescue reported that Whole Woman’s Health of McAllen was fined at total of $17,430 by the Texas Commission on Environment Quality for illegal dumping of medical waste.

In November, Life Dynamics, a national pro-life group in Denton, Texas sent fliers to every hospital warning them the abortion lobby was going to attempt to get privileges:

Mark Crutcher, president of Life Dynamics explained the project on the latest episode of his Life Talk show, “What we did is created a post card called Hired Killers. This postcard is designed to discourage doctors from getting involved in abortion. We sent one of these to every doctor’s office in Texas. What we are trying to do is keep the waters stirred because what the abortion industry wants is to recruit these guys and tell them, you can just slide in and you don’t have to raise a big ruckus about it. We’re making sure that these doctors understand, there will be a ruckus and this is just the first shot of the ruckus that’s coming.

“The second thing we did was send a letter to every hospital administrator in Texas. It’s designed to discourage them from granting privileges and be on the lookout for new doctors filing for hospital privileges who are not telling them they are working in an abortion clinic. Before you let them in, you better ask them if they are working in abortion because you don’t want to drag this hospital into the abortion controversy.”

Looks like they have worked to dissuade doctors from assisting Whole Woman’s Health.

Marva Sadler, a regional director at Whole Woman’s complained to the pro-cbortion blog, RH Reality saying, “We’ve been well aware that Texas has been against us and on us for many, many years. But I did not think I would see a day where they would have put up such barriers that now that we’re actually closing clinics, and they’re essentially taking away the right to fair and safe comprehensive health care that all women, not only in the state of Texas, deserve to have.”

Well…what about the safety of women? I guess that just doesn’t factor into the equation with these killers?
