St. Louis Pro-Life Activist “Not Guilty” After Planned Parenthood Falsely Accused Him of Terrorism

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – A pro-life activist who was wrongly accused and charged with making a terrorist threat at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis, Missouri, has been found not guilty by a jury yesterday and is now completely cleared of any wrong-doing.

John P. Ryan was falsely accused by Planned Parenthood worker Casey Spiegel of having told her there were seven bombs inside the abortion business on December 31, 2016. He was arrested by police on the scene and held for 35 hours until he was finally released on bond.

Despite the fact that a 2017 grand jury had declined to indict Ryan, city prosecutors insisted on trying him.

After a three-day trial, the jury deliberated just an hour on May 23, 2018, before returning their “not guilty” verdict.

The dubious prosecution appeared to be politically motivated. Ryan’s case was used repeatedly by Planned Parenthood and others to support a so-called “buffer zone” aimed at keeping pro-life activists from reaching out to abortion-bound women.

“Alderwomen Megan Green and Christine Ingrassia used this so-called terrorist threat as one of the main reasons a buffer zone bill was needed. The campaign to pass the buffer zone ordinance was based on a lie,” said Ryan in a statement.

Brad Blake, Special Counsel for the Thomas More Society represented Ryan. He noted, “This criminal charge, with its attendant bond restrictions that keep John away from the Planned Parenthood facilities, succeeded in muzzling him and depriving him of his First Amendment rights to use the public sidewalk, as he had for years previously, to voice his pro-life message. This deprivation of his free speech rights was based on bogus allegations by Planned Parenthood that were then advanced by Prosecutor Kim Gardner’s office. . .Prosecutor Kim Gardner’s goal was not justice, but rather persecution. That is evident because her office persisted with this case after the grand jury refused to indict Mr. Ryan based on insufficient evidence and after he passed a polygraph test.”

“It is obvious that Planned Parenthood needed a scapegoat in order to provide an excuse to enact a buffer zone, so they set up John Ryan to take the fall,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Planned Parenthood was obviously in cahoots with a corrupt prosecutor, or this case would have been dismissed long ago. We hope Mr. Ryan considers suing the City of St. Louis, Planned Parenthood, and its employee who lied about him in the first place and denied him his rights and freedom, and nearly destroyed his good reputation. This corruption and injustice must not be allowed to stand.”

Twins Die After Hospital Withholds Treatment Despite Mom’s Desperate Pleas

TAKE ACTION! (See Below!)

By Cheryl Sullenger

Columbus, OH – A tragedy is being reported by the pro-life group Created Equal involving a Columbus, Ohio, hospital staff that stood by and refused to even evaluate twin boys born at 22 weeks 5 days gestation despite their mother’s desperate pleas for help. Both boys were born alive, moving, and breathing. Neither of them survived.

Created Equal released a shocking video taken at the mother’s hospital bedside and documentation of the incident, which occurred at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus, Ohio, in June of 2017.

“It is outrageous that Riverside Methodist Hospital turned callously away while these babies slowly lost their struggle for life. The anguish this caused the mother and the family is obvious from viewing the video,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “This hospital cannot be allowed to withhold life-saving medical intervention from premature babies that have a good chance of survival if treated, as these babies did. We simply cannot stand idly by and watch this happen to others. This hospital must be held accountable.”

Here is what happened, according to the Created Equal report:

Pregnant with twins, Amanda entered Riverside Methodist Hospital in June of 2017 at 22 weeks and 2 days in her pregnancy after experiencing bleeding. Riverside staff informed her that if the boys were delivered before 22 weeks and 5 days, there would be no attempt to resuscitate. Twins Emery and Elliot were born three days later, at 22 weeks and 5 days.

Emery survived for 45 minutes after his birth. A neonatal doctor put Emery under a heat lamp, but there was neither assessment of nor assistance given to him. Elliot, born second, was much larger. He survived for over two hours while assessment and assistance were denied in spite of Amanda’s cries for help.

Later, when Amanda was discharged, she was treated as if her sons were stillborn, and was given discharge instructions for care after experiencing a still birth.

Despite Amanda’s efforts to seek some resolution with the hospital through private channels, she has been informed that the matter is considered closed.

Amanda did not even get so much as a statement of condolence from them on the death of her sons.

• See evidence Emery and Elliot were born at 22 weeks, five days.
• See stillbirth discharge papers Amanda was given.
• Read Amanda’s statement regarding the incident.
• Listen to audio of the hospital’s statement considering the matter “closed.”

This tragedy holds a sad irony. The Federal Born Alive Infant Protection Act of 2002 required abortion facilities to provide treatment to babies born alive during abortions. It was amended in 2018 to provide criminal penalties for failing to do so.

Also, babies born at 22 weeks have been known to survive and many medical professionals believe 22 weeks should be the new landmark for viability.

“How can this hospital get away with denying life-saving medical treatment viable premature babies when abortionists can be held criminally responsible for doing exactly what this hospital did?” asked Newman. “In this case, the hospital staff betrayed the family’s trust in the most tragic way imaginable. It may not be criminal conduct, but it should be.”

Take Action!

Operation Rescue is joining with Created Equal in contacting on Riverside Methodist Hospital to issue an apology to Amanda and her family for failing to even attempt to save Emery and Elliot’s lives, and for wrongly treating Amanda as if her babies were stillborn.

Please also request that Riverside Methodist Hospital change their policies to ensure that this never happens to another family.

Please e-mail and call the hospital!

If You Don’t Know THIS, You Don’t Know the “Notorious R.B.G” – or How Her Radical Ideology Has Changed America

By Cheryl Sullenger

Recently, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has achieved a near cult-like following among those who consider themselves “progressives.” Young liberals idolize her. CNN has made a documentary praising her. Law students tattoo her image on their arms.

Ginsburg, 83, the former head of the ACLU, was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Bill Clinton in 1993, where she presented herself as a “moderate and an advocate of judicial moderation.” But that was just to make her acceptable to the mainstream to ensure her confirmation.

Once she was confirmed, her true colors were exposed and she has since become the extreme ideological leader of the liberal activist faction of the Supreme Court.

It is no secret that she abhors President Donald Trump. She’s called him “a faker” and skipped his 2018 State of the Union Address in a show of disrespect for him. She has vowed to stay on the Court as long as possible to prevent Trump from appointing her successor.

In fact, she refused to retire and allow even Pres. Barack Obama to select her replacement, complaining that the political climate would not allow him to appoint anyone who was her ideological equal. Her plan was to allow Hillary Clinton to replace her, a plan that was thankfully thwarted by Trump’s election.

The Ginsburg agenda

But specifically, what tenets comprise the Ginsburg ideology, and how has that affected America over the years since she first ascended the most powerful Court in the land?

A summary of the Ginsburg philosophy has recently resurfaced. The document contains three statements that were entered into the record in 1993 in opposition to Ginsburg’s nomination to the Supreme Court. The first — and most revealing — was prepared by Susan Hirshman, who was then the Executive Director of the conservative Eagle Forum. The second was the statement of Kay Coles James, a veteran of the Reagan and H.W. Bush administrations who is currently serving as President of the Heritage Foundation. Finally, the document contains a statement by Howard Phillips, former head of the conservative Constitution Party.

The paper exposing Ginsburg’s radical positions reads like an Orwellian prophesy. One could hardly conceive of a better blueprint with which to destroy the American family and way of life.

In the 1970’s Ginsburg had developed her idea of what feminism should mean. She had complained that in the 19th century, the status of women was akin to that of Blacks under the pre-Civil War slave code. Instead of putting women on a pedestal, it put them in a cage.

Ginsburg advocated for affirmative action and supported hiring quotas for women. However, she hated the traditional sex roles and worked to create a “genderless society” – that is except where her female hiring quotas were concerned.

Her radical views were articulated in print in the 1977 book Sex Bias in the U.S. Code, which she co-authored by ultra-feminist Brenda Feigen-Fasteau, who worked with Ms. Magazine founder Gloria Steinem and partnered with Ginsburg at the ACLU.

Here are some of the radical changes for which Ginsburg advocated in that 1977 manifesto:

• Women must be drafted when men are drafted and assigned to military combat duty.
• Prisons and reformatories must be sex-integrated.
• Single sex colleges and other institutions, such as the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts must change their names and be sex-integrated.
• The traditional family concept should be eliminated.
• Federal government must provide comprehensive child care – presumably at tax-payer expense.
• No-fault divorce implemented nationally.

It is easy to see how these concepts are aimed at destroying the family unit by stripping men and women of their God-given roles and making children essentially thought-wards of the state. Despite Ginsburg’s supposed advocacy of “women’s rights,” her ideas actually erode the rights of women to be women, and places them in harm’s way.

But Ginsburg’s brand of feminism has also sexually demeaned and subjugated women by stripping away all sexual mores that protect women (and children) from exploitation and abuse.

Here are her stated goals:

• Lower the age of sexual consent to 12 years old.
• Legalize prostitution.
• Allow for the sex trafficking of women and girls and repeal the Mann Act that makes sex trafficking illegal. (Ginsburg thought sex trafficking laws made women look weak and unable to defend against “bad men.”)

Bill Clinton, who appointed Ginsburg to the Supreme Court, must have been giddy at the thought.

It has been since the Clinton Administration that we have heard news of millionaire Jeffery Epstein and his “Lolita Express” ferrying Clinton, along with a vast array of pedophiles and perverts, to “Pedo Island” in the Caribbean for God-only-knows what kind of perversion with children and young adults who serve as sex slaves to the elite.

It is hard to see how any of this is “liberating” for women.

Today, sex trafficking has reached epidemic levels around the world. Young men and women have been recently seen openly trafficked on social media platforms such as Instagram. Ginsburg’s dream was being realized.

Thankfully, President Donald Trump has instituted a set of Executive Orders that have allowed for trafficking rings to be broken up world-wide and have put traffickers behind bars. Ginsburg must be peeved that her extreme and warped concept of feminism that she worked so long to implement is now being dismantled.

Abortion

As an essential part of establishing Ginsburg’s genderless society and “equality principle” where all types of sexual abuse and exploitation are permissible, abortion has become a necessity for Ginsburg’s acolytes.

Abortion must be allowed in Ginsburg’s America in order to enable free sex, child sex abuse, and human trafficking.

It must also be available to limit the population, especially those “undesirables” who the globalist elitists — of whom Ginsburg is a part – want to exterminate. The smaller the population, the easier it is to control them. Abortion was to be used as an indispensable tool for reducing the population to manageable levels.

In Ginsburg’s opinion, developed at least as far back as the 1970’s, abortion should be a constitution right fully funded by the U.S. taxpayers. She especially bemoaned the Hyde Amendment that prevented Federal funds from paying for abortions since she believed it would diminish access to abortion for the poor.

But surprisingly, Ginsburg had a bone to pick with the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that decriminalized abortion in America. She believed the Roe decision was too much too fast. If only the court had made a series of more incremental rulings that slowly decriminalized abortion, Ginsburg believes that it would have been more accepted by the American people. She believes this tactic would have halted the rise of the pro-life movement, which has proved to be a monkey wrench in the abortion industry’s works ever since.

Perhaps Ginsburg persuaded the High Court to see things her way as far as rulings on gay rights. The more incremental approach, coupled with the demonization of those who oppose homosexuality on religious grounds, has essentially – but not fully – eliminated opposition to the acceptance of gays and every other fantasy gender imaginable.

But as far as Ginsburg’s anti-Christian philosophy goes, she continues to underestimate the strong faith of Christian citizens who oppose abortion and gay rights on moral grounds no matter what attempt is used to normalize child-killing and perversion.

Without abortion, it would be difficult to erode the family unit, promote free sex and pedophilia, or establish Ginsburg’s so-called “genderless society.”

Elections have consequences

Certainly, Ginsburg’s advanced age means her influence over American law and culture is coming to an end. So why is all this important now?

The Trump Administration is working hard to roll back some of the destructive aspects of Ginsburg’s radical agenda. Trump is pro-life, and that is influencing how government deals with matters related to children, families, and abortion. He has taken numerous steps through a series of executive orders to deny Federal funds to Planned Parenthood both at home and abroad – another set-back to the Ginsburg’s anti-life efforts.

Trump’s pro-life beliefs are affecting other policies, such as health care and immigration. The Department of Health and Human Services now views babies in the woman as human beings worthy of protection from the moment of conception. And it is affecting immigration, where the Trump administration is fighting to keep teens from illegally entering our country for abortions at taxpayer expense.

As mentioned, Trump is taking down the human traffickers, and rolling back other facets of Ginsburg’s globalist “Deep State” anti-family, anti-life elitist plan.

However, if Republicans lose the House or Senate in the 2018 midterm elections, the Democrats will have the unlimited ability to thwart the Trump agenda. If Trump loses re-election in 2020, another president will likely have the opportunity to replace the “Notorious R.B.G.” with someone of her ilk, who will continue the dismantling of the moral fabric of America.

Elections have consequences. Trump’s surprise election has disturbed the Deep State plans for America of which Ginsburg’s ideology is an integral part. They thought Hillary would never lose. Now they are angry and energized to regain control. But if the Democrats retake the White House and, God forbid, Congress, then the Trump protections and pro-life advancements will be undone post haste. In that case, expect Democrats to work quickly to encode as many of Ginsburg’s action items as possible to ensure no one like Trump can ever interfere with their globalist anti-life agenda ever again.

Our Constitutional Republic is literally at stake along with the lives of millions of innocent children, born and unborn. We must engage the political process to prevent the advancement of Ginsburg’s dream of a genderless, globalist, elitist society where pedophiles rule and abortion is sacramental to their paganistic hell on earth.

DOJ Informs Operation Rescue that Neck-Twisting Texas Abortionist Referred to Houston FBI

PRESS RELEASE

Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen.

Washington, DC – The U.S. Department of Justice has informed Operation Rescue in a letter dated May 11, 2018, that abortionist Douglas Karpen has finally been forwarded to the FBI Houston Field Office for “any action deemed necessary” related to crimes that include the murder of living babies after failed abortions.

The case actually began in 2012, when four women who worked at Karpen’s Houston area abortion facilities contacted Operation Rescue with information that he was violating the law. Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue, received photos of large babies that one Karpen employee had taken at his abortion facility with her cell phone that workers said had been born alive then killed by slashing or twisting their necks.

On May 15, 2013, Operation Rescue released a report along with the photos that supported allegations that Karpen was murdering babies that survived the abortion process. Other alleged crimes included sexual harassment and/or abuse of employees and patients.

That report and ensuing complaints prompted a grand jury “investigation” that declined to indict Karpen. Operation Rescue later learned that grand jury was tainted by improper communications between then District Attorney Devon Anderson and Karpen’s criminal defense attorney Chip Lewis, who were close family friends. Lewis later donated $25,000 to Anderson’s political campaigns.

Operation Rescue then forwarded the information about Karpen’s alleged crimes to the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives that was tasked in 2015 with investigating evidence that Planned Parenthood was engaging in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains for profit.

On December 7, 2016, the House Select Panel referred Karpen to the Department of Justice under former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for investigation and prosecution. In 2017, the House Select Panel renewed its criminal referral of Karpen to the DOJ under Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Sullenger wrote to Sessions in August 2017, asking for him to open an investigation into Karpen’s alleged crimes, especially the allegations that he murdered babies born alive during abortions.

“The letter I received from the Department of Justice is encouraging. The photos depict wounds inflicted on those babies that could not have been done inside the womb. After having personally attended the Pennsylvania trial of Kermit Gosnell, who was convicted of murdering living babies after failed abortions, I knew we could never give up seeking proseccutions for Karpen’s similar crimes,” said Sullenger. “We are grateful for this new FBI investigation that has renewed our hope that Karpen may finally be brought to justice.”

Operation Rescue Applauds President Donald Trump for Enacting the “Protect Life Rule”


PRESS RELEASE

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Trump Administration implemented the Protect Life Rule, which will prevent Title X programs from conducting, counseling for, or referring for abortions.

“I am very grateful to President Trump for making the Protect Life Rule a reality. As someone that researches abortion abuses daily, I know this rule will protect vulnerable women from exploitation and possible harm at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics that masquerade as women’s health facilities,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue. “President Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood and today he has kept that promise as far as the Title X program is concerned. Thank you, Mr. President!”

There are 266 Planned Parenthood abortion facilities that are currently receiving Title X funding.

Serious abortion complications that have required emergency transport for women from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities have been documented by Operation Rescue at over 30 Planned Parenthood facilities in 22 states since 2016. That is just a small fraction of abortion injuries that take place at these facilities, since many women receive emergency care for complications once they are discharged by Planned Parenthood.

Operation Rescue has also documented the abortion-related deaths of Planned Parenthood patients, including Cree Erwin, who died in 2016 after receiving a botched first trimester abortion at Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Tonya Reaves, who bleed to death in 2012 after a second trimester abortion at a Planned Parenthood facility in Chicago, Illinois.

It is expected that the Protect Life Rule will deny about $170 million in taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Operation Rescue, which is headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, also commends Rep. Ron Estes (R-KS) for his leadership that contributed to making this life-saving rule change a reality.
