Alabama Abortion Mill Closed By State After Botched Abortion

Non-Physicians miss-prescribe RU 486 for late-term abortion of 6 lb. 4 oz. baby.

Birmingham, AL – May 19, 2006 The State of Alabama has closed the Summit Medical Center after an investigation into a botched abortion by clinic workers involving the delivery of nearly full term dead baby.

The State Board of Health took six weeks to investigate the incident and suspend the abortion mill’s license. After calling the incident “egregious,” health department agent Dr. Donald Williamson indicated that the clinic might not reopen.

The woman went to the Summit Medical Center on February 20, and was given an ultrasound by a non- physician in violation of Alabama law. She was told that she was six weeks pregnant when in fact she was 8 months along. Non-physicians then administered the abortion pill, RU 486, a drug approved for use only in early pregnancy and is responsible for at least 7 deaths since it hit the US market in late 2000.

Six days later, the woman delivered a six pound, four ounce dead baby at the hospital emergency room.

An investigation into the abortion mill revealed that the patient records were falsified to show that a doctor had administered the ultrasound and medication, even though no doctor was present at the mill that day.

Local pro-life activist Jim Pinto indicated that the Summit Medical Center has a long history of botched abortions. He said, “In my 26 years of Pro-life work in Birmingham, I know of scores of injured women and four who died soon after receiving the services of area abortion clinics. I and many others have tried to, ‘love mother and child both’ and offer every possible resource to promote the protection and sanctity of life.”

Pinto related that one of the Summit abortionists, Dr. Malachy Dehenre, had his license indefinitely suspended after he “perforated the uteruses of three women and caused the death of another.”

“This just goes to show that abortions mills will lie, falsify records, give abortions without doctors, botch abortions, and never think they will ever be held accountable, and unfortunately that is the case in many states,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We thank God the State of Alabama had the integrity to enforce their laws and close this unsafe abortion ‘chop shop.’ It is our prayer that all abortion mills will soon follow suit.”

    That poor baby. And that abortionist should be charged with 1st degree murder.

  • Andrea

    My oldest was 5 pounds, nine ounces, and very robust.

    Very beautiful and dear.

    As I’m sure she was from conception.

    How can we not call this murder? This is the MOST murder! Our innocents.

    This should NEVER HAPPEN. I don’t care what your spiritual philosophy is, unless you simply hate humanity (as Hitler did, for instance), it’s time to GET REAL. Why isn’t this obvious to everyone? Is the worth of each individual not so obvious – in that we can learn from them (who said that?)

    Ladies, it’s not about our rights over our bodies, it’s about the rights of our daughters and sons bodies, that are as precious as our own (and, when we have them, to us even more precious).

    The baby should be counted a hero, and a martyr; his/her death has made the world a better place for others targeted for unjust & barbaric execution.

    The staff…even the “doctor”, had she been present…should be counted zeros, worse than nothing to rational, sentient humanity for their sick travesty of real healthcare.

    But that is typical of the death camps in the Birmingham area, as all over the country.

    HEALTH DEPARTMENTS EVERYWHERE, IF YOU’RE NOT OUTRAGED ENOUGH AT THIS TO INVESTIGATE EVERY CLAIM AGAINST EVERY ABORTUARY IN YOUR JURISDICTION, YOU’RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION, AND YOU ARE JUST AS DESPICABLE AS SCUMMIT FOR LOOKING THE OTHER WAY AS THESE ATROCITIES ARE PERPETRATED, DAY AFTER DAY, IN AMERICA’S DEATH CAMPS DISGUISED AS “REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CENTERS”, ETC.

    THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF INJUSTICE: THE FIRST IS FOUND IN THOSE WHO DO AN INJURY. THE SECOND IS FOUND IN THOSE WHO FAIL TO PROTECT ANOTHER FROM INJURY WHEN THEY CAN. — Cicero

  • This is sad all the way around. Abortionists LIE to these women to get their money. I find it a little bit of a stretch that this person believed herself to be only a few weeks pregnant and was actually nearing her delivery date, seems pretty unlikely. I think it is tragic that this woman/girl was subjected to this torture. I remember a story, on this site, several months ago, where a woman was given the pills to abort her 5 week baby. She was told there would be minimum cramping, some bleeding and then it would be over. She delivered her dead baby into the toilet. A fully formed baby. Not only was she convinced there would be NO baby – it was just that magical “blob” or “tissue” so they said – she was GUARANTEED there would be nothing to see. Well, she did see her child and now has to live forever with the knowledge she deliberately ended her baby’s life, she had to see the child dead in her toilet and will suffer a lifetime of guilt and regret. She took photo of her daughter and posted it here with her story, that took courage. I am 100% PRO LIFE, Pro Woman, Pro Child. This child suffered a terrible death. The childs suffering is over, this mothers suffering will last a lifetime. Imagine, being told how simple this “procedure” will be to endure…not really killing…just a convenient solution to a difficult problem. She delivered her full term baby – dead – killed in the name of selfishness and “a womans right to choose”. I just hope that MORE people read this – stories like this – see the images of aborted babies – read the testimonies of former abortion providers and the women vicitmized by the biggest lie and most disgusting truth, because the word ABORTION has lost ALL meaning in society. Abortion is the grossest form of child abuse and God will not fail to hold us accountable. It is a shame that in a civilized advanced country we allow this kind of ulitmate brutality, not just against our pre-born children, but subject women who dont believe there are better “choices” for them to this horrific nightmare called abortion and tolerate those who celebrate and embrace such a sickening “procedure”. Wasn’t abortion supposed to liberate women? Supposed to make “every child a wanted child”? BS – such a huge steaming heap of BS. Where is child welfare, family values, job security, financial security, morals, values, commitment to family and marriage and education NOW compared to PRE “womens rights” pre 1973 pre Roe vs Wade? OK off of my soapbox now and back to work…God Bless you and all of yours today…VOTE Pro Life

    I
    live in Alabama and also had a abortion right before that incident. I was hospitalized for bleeding non stop I couldn’t walk for a month. I had to take dangerous amt of birthcontrol to stop the bleeding that had me in the emergency room 4x a week. Not to mention 50,000 worth of medical bills at age 20. I was sick severly during pregnancy which caused me to pass out and I had a 3mon old already. I actually don’t condone abortions and was the biggest mistake I’ve ever made as a mom but I couldn’t even function. Then if you see rh negative then you have to get a shot in case the baby blood isn’t and from their test at the summit it said I wasn’t which I had a card from my previous pregnancy to show that I was since I had to get the same shot while pregnant with my daughter.it seemed like a hell hole and where they were taking advantage of young scared girls. They need did the counselling before like mentioned in the papers maybe I would have had a change of heart. My best friend went one day after me and she had to also be hospitalised. It was horrible and horrific. I should have listened to the protester out side that told me the doc was not licensed and a young girl committed suicide there a week prior. She told me I was 2 months when indeed I didn’t have a period 3 1/2 months before. To make this worse the anethesia didn’t work and I saw a rather huge baby on a blue cloth blanket and other parts thrown in a clear huge jar of blood. I then lost it and started shaking and crying on stop and all the doc could say was smile now its over! With a smile like grin. Did I mention he hummed a song the whole time. It was horrible and it was blood drops down the hall as one girl left and the next in line walked in it was An actual line by the door

    Isn’t it odd that some people believe that putting a prison inmate to death would be “cruel and unusual punishment,” and yet no one ever thinks twice about putting an innocent unborn baby to death and calling it “cruel and unusual punishment?” Why is the life of a prison Death Row inmate worth more than that of an unborn child, whose only “crime” was that it existed when its mother didn’t want it? And why is this child only a baby when its wanted, a fetus (which means “little person” in Latin) or a “mass of tissue” when it is unwanted? If the child has a heartbeat and a working nervous system, and if the child can feel pain, then it is alive, and it is as much a human being as we are. Wake up, America, and stop killing our babies! You are destroying our future!

    God has really spoken to my heart this week about this topic. I want to do something to help these poor babies. Also I’m looking for information on Alabama state law when it comes to aborted babies that live and medical care. Does our state deny those babies medical care. God Bless you All.

    Love in Christ,
