Michigan abortion facility open since the 1970s shuts down

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.

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.

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.

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.

UPDATE: Since publishing this blog, Jessica’s mom has contacted Saynsumthn, she has stated that she has not changed her opinions on abortion as stated originally. Saynsumthn reported what Jessica said in her public interview but in fairness is adding this disclaimer along with the mother’s comments (below) to the post.

A woman whose abortion at 23 weeks landed her in the hospital spoke out recently about her regret and the harm her decision has cost her.

Jessica D. was interviewed by Al Kresta along with pro-life advocate Lynn Mills. Jessica met Mills after she saw a comment Mills posted on this blog.

The hour long interview was emotional and full of details which may disturb some readers, be warned.

BACKGROUND

Jessica was married and had a disabled child when, in February of 2014 she and her husband made the decision to have an abortion. She said that when she found out she was pregnant- she was panicked.

“When you’re in panic mode you don’t think – you don’t have emotions to fix things,” she told Al Kresta.

Jessica recounted how her mom had worked for Planned Parenthood years before she decided to have her abortion.

She thought her mom, who remained relatively silent when she contemplated the decision to have an abortion, was supportive.

But after she had the second trimester procedure Jessica said that her mom shocked her by asking why she did not place the child for adoption instead.

“I grew up in a very pro-choice home. We were not very religious and pro-lifers were crazy – that lie and nothing is the truth and they stretch the truth and you can’t trust it
,” Jessica said.

Although Jessica mentioned her pregnancy to her mom who was not employed by Planned Parenthood at the time, she was not involved in her ultimate decision to have the abortion.

“After I had the procedure and she knew all along, she said to me on the phone: Why didn’t you just give it up for adoption? And, to hear my mom say that was the most heartbreaking thing she said because my mom was always for abortion and women’s rights.”

THE ABORTION

In February of 2014, Jessica went to the offices of abortionist Jacob Kalo who set up an appointment for her to see another abortionist, in Lathrup Village, his name was Reginald Sharpe.

ReginaldSharpe-SummitMedicalCenter03082013-120x160

Jessica was 23 weeks and 5 days along just under the 24 week limit in Michigan.

Jessica told Kresta that she was not given any counseling by the abortion clinic.

It was just a price given,” she stated.

“He said right then it would be $4000.00 the week before the 27th. And we didn’t have the full amount and he said it goes up- the longer you wait the higher it is.”

Jessica said the abortionist then gave her advice on how to get a second mortgage on her house or car.

“He said if I get past 24 weeks he would refer me to go to New York.”

Jessica said she was not shown any fetal development pictures as well.

Michigan state law requires an informed consent before an abortion can be performed. In most cases abortion minded women would be able to review informed consent documents online prior to the procedure. But in Jessica’s case, even though Planned Parenthood did not perform the abortion, she was able to go to them to review the informed consent package.

“When I went for my 24 hour consent form at Planned Parenthood, they said ‘now you don’t have to open this packet. This is for the pro-lifers and this isn’t accurate.’ And so, even looking at that I didn’t know what to trust.”

According to Michigan law, the following documents are required to be given to a woman seeking an abortion at least 24 hours prior to the abortion procedure:

    A written summary of the abortion procedure she will undergo.
    Depictions, illustrations or photographs of fetal development corresponding to the gestational age nearest the probable gestational age of the woman’s fetus.
    Prenatal care information
    Parenting information

THE PROCEDURE

Jessica said the abortion procedure was unlike anything the clinics advertise online. She called the treatment “poor at best.”

“Its like you’re not even human,” she stated.

“It’s so bad I was put into the room and into stirrups and no clothes and nothing covering and I waited for about an hour and a half. There is no dignity in it and it’s painful. It’s like you’re not even there.”

The abortion was a two day procedure.

DAY ONE:

The first day, Jessica said that she received an injection of digoxin and her overall visit to the clinic lasted about twenty minutes.

Digoxin is a drug injected into an unborn baby to cause his or her heart to stop in preparation for what amounts to a stillborn birth.

It was very painful, Jessica reiterated.

“The first day I was told there would be mild cramping. And, you actually go into labor. When they send you home…I had my son natural and this was much worse.”

Because the pain was so acute, Jessica’s husband called the abortion clinic’s emergency number and they told her under no circumstances to go to the emergency room.

DAY TWO

Jessica said that on day two she was not given any pain medication for the procedure.

I was told I would have medications and fluids…I was expecting sedation and medication,” she said.

She recalls that after forty-five minutes the abortionist had to stop to call 911 due to a perforated uterus and massive blood loss.

When he did perforate my uterus, I had sat up,” she said.

What happened next will remain ingrained in Jessica’s mind forever.

She continues, “And I saw this red bucket on the floor and – uh – what I saw was just…” at that point in the interview Jessica could not say it, but Mills explained that what Jessica saw was her dismembered baby.

It was so painful,” she said.

“It was pulling- he was pulling.”

Jessica told Kresta that while she lay there bleeding she felt that it would be better if she would just die.

According to Jessica, parts of her almost 24 week unborn child had gone outside the perforation and the abortionist was having difficulty removing them. She told Mills earlier that the abortionist had been training another doctor to do the later term procedure that day.

While Jessica 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.” She remained unclothed during this time, she stated.

WOmanCare 911

Mills sent Saynsumthn a transcript of the February 28, 2014 911 call were abortionists Reginald Sharpe tells the dispatcher they need to come right away because, “she has a hole and she’s bleeding.”

You can read that here.

According to Mills, after the EMS techs arrived, the abortionist would not allow them to take her out the front door. She was removed out the back door which made the transfer more excruciating for Jessica who was already in pain.

Jessica said that prior to making the decision to have the abortion, she had no expectation that anything would go wrong because everything she read online said it was a simple and safe procedure.

As a result of the botched abortion, Jessica had to remain hospitalized for several days.

REGRET

Jessica said that days after she was released from the hospital she began to realize just what she had done in having the abortion.

She said she began to look up information online to try and discover why her experience was so unlike what she had read about regarding abortions generally.

“I had a big conflict in my heart about my procedure and why everything I read online was not what happened to me.”

Over ten months my life was just devastated,” Jessica emotionally stated, “I lost over eighty pounds.”

Jessica said the abortion put incredible strain on the marriage.

“I don’t think he realized how, like I didn’t realize how fully formed and what we had done.It was terrible.”

“I had actually had a suicide plan at that time things were so low,” she said.

According to Jessica, meeting Lynn Mills was her last effort to make sense of what had happened.

Lynn Mills 162752_000_GI89G63UR.1-0Mills said that Jessica found her online after reading a post at Saynsumthn’s blog (here) and got Mills’ e-mail address from the comment she had left for another abortion patient.

She then contacted Mills.

Mills is helping Jessica work through the pain and regret of the abortion.

Jessica said that she is planning to get counseling for the abortion as well as her marriage. She is working on forgiving herself.

According to Mills, the state of Michigan has since suspended the license of the abortion clinic.

CONCLUSION

Jessica and Mills have become friends and Jessica said Mills is someone she can tell everything about this experience to without judgement.

I want pro-lifers out there to really be kind and loving to my friend Jessica…All I want to do is love her- just love her and get her healthy. Jessica doesn’t want this to happen to anyone else,” Mills said in closing.

Jessica said that her mother has actually changed her position on abortion as a result of what she experienced.

UPDATED AFTER THIS BLOG WAS PUBLISHED: However, Jessica’s mother says she has not changed her mind by writing this in the comments, “I am Jessica’s mother. I was never interviewed by anyone, nor did I change my “position” about abortion. This blog is not factual in many areas. Please keep this in mind when reading.”

Mills encourages pro-lifers to go out to abortion clinics as often as possible to try and reach the Jessicas who might be considering ending their child’s life.

Jessica knows that telling her story will anger some people. She said she came forward because she wanted others to know they do not have to go through what she did and to seek help not abortion if you are a women in a crisis pregnancy.

State suspends abortion clinic pending investigation

Posted in Abortion clinic closed by state, Abortion Clinic Inspections, abortion clinic safety, Abortion Clinic Worders, Abortionist with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 22, 2014 by saynsumthn

A woman who will be testifying at a press conference outside a Michigan abortion clinic got her courage to come forward after reading this blog.

Pro-lifers will call for a permanent end to a Lathrup Village abortion clinic when they gather in front of the Women’s Center of Southfield on Tuesday. The clinic is owned by abortionist Jacob Kalo and abortions are performed by abortionist Reginald Sharpe.

WomenCareSouthfield-Ambulance-2-28-2014-e1393608713983

In 2013, this blogger posted this story: Ambulance removes woman from Michigan abortion clinic, detailing an ambulance being summoned to the Summit Medical Services abortion clinic in Detroit, where Reginald Sharpe worked at the time.

At the time of that Blog post, Sharpe had been sued at least five times.

The patient, who was injured from the abortion Sharpe performed on her, stumbled onto the Saynsumthn’s blog post.

While there she saw a series of comments from a a woman who claimed she took a patient to the clinic and another who claimed she caught VD because of unsanitary equipment:

Saynsumth Blog Comments Sharpe

Although the woman did not leave a comment herself, she responded to the e-mail address of a local pro-lifer who put her in touch with local pro-life investigator Lynn Mills.

Lynn Mills 162752_000_GI89G63UR.1-0

Mills told Saynsumthn, that because she stumbled onto this blog- she is now willing to testify before the state about the treatment she received while under Sharpe’s care for an abortion at Women’s Center of Southfield.

According to Mills, the abortionist perforated the woman’s uterus after she went to him for a 23 week and five day abortion. Mills said after the botched procedure, the woman was removed from the abortion clinic out the back door by ambulance. Mills has a recording of the 911 call placed at the time the ambulance was called, which she hopes state investigators will listen to in deciding whether to allow the clinic to continue operating.

WOmanCare 911

Mills sent Saynsumthn a transcript of the February 28, 2014 911 call were abortionists Reginald Sharpe tells the dispatcher they need to come right away because, “she has a hole and she’s bleeding.

Unidentified female caller: He’s like, hold for one moment. I’m like what are you talking about?

Receiver: Southfield 911.

Unidentified female caller: I’m calling from WomanCare of Southfield. We have a patient here who needs emergency assistance to the hospital. We were doing a termination of pregnancy and there’s possible complication.

Receiver: Ok, female, how old?

Unidentified female caller: Hello?

Receiver: Ya, how old? How old?

Unidentified female caller: She is 29 years old; she’s a female.

Receiver: 29 (typing termination)

Unidentified female caller: She needs to go to the hospital like as soon as possible. Immediately.

Receiver: Termination. Ok. Of.

Abortionist Reginald Sharpe: This is Dr. Sharpe, how are you doing?

Receiver: Good. We’re going to get the paramedics coming that way. I’m just asking the questions and we’ll get them coming to 28505 Southfield, ok?

Abortionist Reginald Sharpe: We need them right now, she has a hole and she’s bleeding.

Receiver: Ok, gotcha. We’ll get them coming.

Abortionist Reginald Sharpe: Ok, about how long do you think?

Receiver: As soon as I hang up on with you will get them coming that way, Doctor. Bye-bye.

Abortionist Reginald Sharpe: Alright.

According to Mills, the woman had to be hospitalized for several days as a result of her abortion.

Mills said the state Attorney General has since ordered the closure of Sharpe’s Woman’s Center of Southfield pending the outcome of an investigation.

The closure order took place November 21, 2014, and this has been confirmed by a suspension notice on the state’s website:

WomensCenterSouthfield SuspendedMill

However, despite this, calls made to the clinic have confirmed they are open and scheduling abortions.

Mills told Saynsumthn Blog that the Women’s Center of Southfield has failed no less than five inspections within the past ten months and she sent Saynsumth a list of some of the violations:

Sharpe Kalo Abortion

I kept writing the state asking how many times do they get to fail?” Mills said.

Mills said a hearing is expected in March.
