Late-Term Abortionist that Blamed Operation Rescue for His Problems Has Medical License Revoked


By Cheryl Sullenger

Annapolis, MD – The Maryland Board of Physicians has issued an order revoking the medical license of late-term abortionist Harold O. Alexander, saying it has no confidence that Alexander possesses the ability to practice medicine safely in light of the fact that previous disciplinary action failed to reform his behavior. It is set to take effect 10 days after it was issued on October 25, 2016.

“It is great news that this man will no longer be allowed to practice medicine. We have long considered him a menace to the public, and now we finally have a Board order agreeing with us,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, which has asked to the Board numerous times to take stronger action against Alexander.

The decision to revoke his license stemmed from a complaint that Alexander had breached the standard of patient care in his treatment of a Denmark woman, who went to Alexander’s unlicensed Integrated Ob/Gyn abortion facility in Forestville, Maryland, for an abortion at 28 weeks into her pregnancy in February 2014.

The Board determined that the procedure done by Alexander could not be classified as an abortion because Alexander’s examination of the woman determined that her baby was already dead when she arrived at his facility. Instead, the patient required an obstetrical delivery of her stillborn. Her treatment should have fallen under obstetrical standards that required him to refer the woman to a hospital for the delivery of her stillborn baby.

Nevertheless, Alexander treated her as if she was getting an abortion. He put her at risk by unnecessarily injecting digoxin into her womb to kill the baby even though the baby was already dead.

“Dr. Alexander exercised poor clinical judgment by disregarding his own medical assessment of the patient and treating the patient he expected rather than the patient who actually presented,” the revocation order stated.

“When you are a hammer, everything is a nail,” said Newman. “Apparently Alexander’s only solution to every medical issue is abortion, because he gets paid for abortions. He doesn’t get paid for referring women to hospitals for legitimate medical treatment.”

Another contributing factor in the Board’s decision was the fact that Alexander had been previously disciplined and was currently on probation at the time of the 2014 incident.

The Board also acknowledged that several conditions existed that made Alexander’s practice too dangerous to continue:

1. Alexander’s office was not licensed as an abortion facility.
2. His office had no surgical equipment in the event a surgical procedure was required.
3. He employed no licensed staff to assist him.
4. He held no hospital privileges.
5. His facility had no hospital transfer agreement, which placed the patient in danger in the event of an emergency.
6. He conducted “midnight abortions” in the middle of the night, an indication that Alexander was attempting to operate his very late-term abortion business under the radar.

Despite these findings, the Board chose not to base its ruling on any of those those egregious factors.

Operation Rescue has been calling for revocation of Alexander’s medical license for years, and the decision to revoke Alexander’s license is indeed a victory. However some of the reasoning behind that decision has created concerning loopholes when it comes to very late-term abortions.

• The Board has classified very late-term Induction Abortions, where labor is initiated and the dead baby is born intact, as “medication” procedures. This creates a troubling loophole that places third-trimester Induction Abortions on the same oversight plane as very early abortions done with abortion pills. It means Induction Abortion facilities like Alexander’s are exempted from requiring a surgical abortion facility license to do them, even though they are among the most danger-prone abortions done in America today.
• The Board determined that Induction Abortions are less dangerous to women than delivering a stillborn baby. In both cases, the baby is dead prior to the induction of labor. There is essentially no difference from that point on from the Induction Abortion process and delivery of a stillborn. This distinction without a difference permits late-term Induction Abortions to be done in the riskier environment of an unlicensed outpatient surgical facility, putting the lives of women at great risk.

“Pro-life supporters in Maryland should consider taking action to close the loopholes and amend the regulations regarding the licensing exemptions for abortions classified as ‘medication,’” said Newman. “This is how Alexander got away with continuing dangerous late-term abortions even though he was banned from surgical abortions due to his incompetence.”

Operation Rescue reported Alexander for operating an illegal secret bi-state late-term abortion scheme in partnership with Florida abortions James Scott Pendergraft, IV. Alexander was issued a three-month suspension on August 22, 2012, for – among other offenses — destroying medical records under subpoena by the board related to his business with Pendergraft.

Alexander complained to news reporters that Operation Rescue was to blame for his problems and that he was the victim of a “conspiracy.”

In February of this year, Operation Rescue caught Alexander conducting “midnight” late-term abortions at his unlicensed facility, and again reported him to the Maryland Board of Physicians.

Operation Rescue spoke with Alexander today and confirmed his Integrated Ob/Gyn abortion facility, is still open at this time and he is still conducting abortions. Once the order goes into effect, that should thankfully be the end of Alexander’s abortion business.

“We look forward to next week when Alexander’s license revocation goes into effect. This should also close down his shoddy abortion business, but he has proven he has no regard for laws or the lives of women, so we will continue to monitor him, just in case,” said Newman.

‘Pay to Slay’: Foreign Crime Family Reached Hillary Clinton for Immigration Favors so They Could Run a Baby Parts Harvesting Business

Planned Parenthood was the source of aborted baby remains that two Isaias family businesses sold all over the world


By Cheryl Sullenger

Orange County, CA – The wealthy Ecuadorian Isaias family that owns DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, which have been sued by the Orange County District Attorney’s office for illegally profiting from the sale of aborted baby tissue it obtained from Planned Parenthood, came to America under a cloud of criminal allegations and scandal.

The Isaias family, including brothers Roberto, William, and Estefano Sr., sought asylum in the U.S. in 2008, after looting millions of dollars from an Ecuadorian bank. These brothers brought with them their extended families – many of which are listed as principals of DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics.

Andres Isaias, son of Estefano Isaias, Sr., is listed as President of both companies while his father and brother, Estefano Isaias, Jr., managed financial decisions and the books. Luis Isaias, son of Roberto Isaias, was also involved with the companies as were other relatives.


During that time, the family made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to Democratic and Republican political campaigns. Family members gave roughly $300,000 to Democrat politicians alone and reached out to Hillary Clinton thru her aide, Cheryl Mills, according to the New York Times. In return, the family received favorable treatment from the Obama Administration and State Department under Clinton, which expedited their immigration into the U.S.

In 2012, Roberto and William Isaias were sentenced in abstentia to eight years in prison for running their bank into the ground then presenting false balance sheets to profit from bailout funds. Estefano Sr. was also said to have been involved in the scheme, but was not on trial.
Ecuador says the Isaias family cost the impoverished country a total of $661.5 million.

The Clinton-led State Department resisted numerous requests by Ecuador to extradite the Isaias brothers back to their native country to face punishment.

This protection of the Isaias fugitives strained relationships between the U.S. and Ecuador, which were already tense due to another perhaps better known fugitive. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had sought asylum from Ecuador, which has since refused U.S. demands to force him from his sanctuary inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he continues to be a thorn in the side to the Obama Administration as well as Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

While all this was happening in 2012, Isaias family members already in the U.S. contributed about $100,000 to the Obama Victory fund – conveniently timed to precede requests from the family with additional help to bring in Robert Isaias’s daughters, Estefania, and later, Maria, into the country.

American diplomats had designated the sisters as “alien smugglers,” and accused them of bringing maids and other household workers into the country using false visas then leaving them at their family’s posh Coral Gables, Florida, home. A ban was placed on their immigration.

Nevertheless, after additional large donations to the Obama campaign and to New Jersey’s Democratic Senator Robert Mendez, who aggressively intervened with the State Department on their behalf even though the family lived in Florida, not New Jersey, the ban was lifted and the women were allowed into the U.S.

In addition to the protection of the U.S. government that their large contributions had bought, the Isaias family had another very lucrative reason to come to America. The family has numerous business holdings adding to their vast wealth that included bioscience, telecommunications, and real estate markets.

estefano-jr-partyingMembers of the Isaias family incorporated DaVinci Biosciences in 2007, followed by the incorporation of a sister company, DV Biologics, in 2009. Last year the businesses located to Yorba Linda, in Orange County, where District Attorney Tony Rackauckas filed suit against them on October 11, 2016, for profiting from the illegal sale of aborted baby remains. He is seeking $1.6 million from the companies – mere chump change for a family as wealthy as the Isaiases.

“Some call the buying of influence ‘Pay to Play’ or ‘Pay to Stay.’ In the case of the Isaias family, I call it ‘Pay to Slay,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who served as a founding board member for the Center of Medical Progress, the group that brought the illegal, but very lucrative, market in aborted baby remains to public attention last year through a series of undercover videos.

According to the Orange County suit, the Isaias companies had no problem procuring on a regular basis tissue of aborted babies, including hearts, lungs, kidneys, brains, intestines, skeletal muscle and bones, from Planned Parenthood abortion facilities in Southern California.

The tissue and often stem cells derived from the tissue was marked up ten times over costs, and sometimes more, creating a profitable revenue stream for the Isaias family. U.S. companies and institutions were heavily price-gouged, while foreign entities got deep discounts that still allowed for a hefty profit. The Isaias baby parts businesses shipped the remains of aborted American babies all over the world.

Also troubling was the fact that in a 2009 press release, a DaVinci Biosciences agent noted they experimented on people in the Hospital Luis Vernaza in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The Isaias family continues to enjoy a wealthy high life in America, safe in the knowledge that their fortunes — made from the exploitation of their fellow human beings — have bought the influence of the Obama Administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

And as if looting a bank, buying influence, illegally profiting from the sale of aborted babies, and exploiting sick third-world country patients isn’t low enough, one of the Isaias family members has sunk even lower.

Estafano Isaias, Jr., who is a co-founder of DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, and is said to manage the companies’ finances, is also the CEO of Fyre TV, a web-based subscription pornography business.

“This is the kind of people that can buy off Hillary Clinton,” said Newman. “It makes no difference if they are criminals, flesh peddlers, and smut dealers that are exploiting American and Ecuadorian people for profit. For Clinton, if you have enough money, anything goes. This is just another reason why her brand of corruption must not be allowed into the White House.”

Abortionist LeRoy Carhart Sued for a Botched Clinton-Supported Late-Term Abortion

Donald J. Trump opposes abortions like the one that ripped this woman’s womb from stem to stern.


By Cheryl Sullenger

Germantown, MD — Topic of late-term abortions is in the headlines due to rabid support from Democrat Hillary Clinton, who denies babies are “ripped from the womb” during late-term abortions, as her opponent, Donald Trump, has said. Now, Operation Rescue has obtained court documents that confirm once again that the most-used form of late-term abortion does in fact dismember a baby, and can cause devastating harm to women as well.

Wendy Devine, 34, is alleging in a negligence/malpractice suit filed on September 27, 2016, in Montgomery County, Maryland, that LeRoy Carhart so severely botched her late-term abortion earlier this year that she nearly died. She endured such extreme injuries that she continues to suffer permanent disability and will likely never bear another child.

Carhart is perhaps the best known abortionist in the country that will openly conduct abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy, and does so at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, Maryland.

Once his home state of Nebraska passed a ban on abortions after 20 weeks in 2010, Carhart was forced to relocate his lucrative third-trimester abortion practice elsewhere. He chose Maryland for two reasons. First, Maryland has no gestational limit on abortion that would limit his business. Secondly, there were few laws to protect women from shoddy abortion practices. It was the perfect environment for someone like Carhart, who was as prone to an above average number of botched abortions, as Operation Rescue witnessed first-hand when he worked at a late-term abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas, until it closed in 2009.

But Wendy Devine had no idea about Carhart’s penchant for injuring – and even killing – his abortion patients. (Two women have died due third trimester abortions done by Carhart: Christin Gilbert in 2005 and Jennifer Morbelli in 2013.)

Devine reported to the Germantown Reproductive Health Services on January 18, 2016, trusting that Carhart and his clinic staff were the experts in the field of abortion they said they were, and competent to conduct her late-term abortion.

That misplaced trust nearly proved fatal.

During her first appointment, Devine was given two injections into her uterine cavity through the abdominal wall, then had cervical dilators inserted. The injections were meant to end the life of her baby prior to a planned Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) dismemberment abortion scheduled for the next day. D&E abortions are commonly used in the majority of late-term abortions — especially if the abortionist is in a hurry. The rarer Induction Method, which births an intact — but still very dead — baby, requires three to four days to complete. The D&E method can be done much quicker.

Afterwards, Devine was sent back to a nearby hotel, where she had made arrangements to stay during the two-day abortion process.

The next day, Devine dutifully reported back to Germantown Reproductive Health Services for the completion of her D&E abortion. Once the procedure was done, Devine immediately knew something was wrong.

According to the malpractice complaint she filed in Montgomery County, a lethargic Devine complained of severe abdominal pain. Because she was bleeding so heavily, she also suffered from very low blood pressure, which caused her heart to race as it struggled to pump an insufficient amount of blood through her system.

Throughout the day, her condition deteriorated to the point that at 7:41 p.m. – long after closing hours – a 911 call was finally placed by a GRHS employee.

But to listen to the 911 call for help, one would think the emergency transport was a simple precautionary act.

On the heavily redacted 911 recording, obtained by Operation Rescue, a cheery clinic worker is heard asking for transport for a patient for observation, downplaying the seriousness of the injuries, which become apparent later in the call.

Carhart and his wife, Mary Lou, could be seen on security camera footage leaving the abortion facility immediately after the ambulance, but in the opposite direction.

Devine’s court records filled in the details that the redacted recording left out.

When Devine finally arrived at the hospital at 8:35 p.m., she was bleeding heavily, was extremely weak, and still suffering severe abdominal pain. Lab tests revealed that her hematocrit and hemoglobin numbers were at “panic levels.”

Normal hematocrit levels for females is 36 to 48%, but Devine’s measured only 16%. Normal hemoglobin levels for females is 12-16, while hers came in at 5.4.

Hospital E.R. doctors called in a gynecologist who examined her and prepped her for surgery.

At 10:20 p.m., Devine was rolled into the emergency room for an exploratory laparoscopy, but what was discovered was so serious that the procedure was converted to an open laparotomy and an additional specialist was called in.

Here is what surgeons found:

• The presence of a large amount of blood in the abdominal cavity between the inner abdominal wall and the organs, which was evacuated.
• The presence of a huge hematoma, or blood clot, containing over one liter of blood, which was removed by the specialist. (This does not take into account the amount of blood lost vaginally or the blood removed from the abdominal cavity before the hematoma could be reached. The average human is supposed to have 4.7 to 5.5 liters.)
• Once the blood and hematoma were out of the way, surgeons discovered that the entire right side of her uterus had been torn open from top to bottom.
Tear in the right uterine artery that required surgical closure. This likely accounted for the internal hemorrhaging.
• The right ovary was severely damaged and left hanging by a thin piece of tissue. It was completely removed.
Significant tear in the tissue that holds the lower colon in place.

Once all her injuries were repaired in what had become an “extensive” surgery, according to Devine’s complaint, she was transferred to the recovery room and the tube that held open her airways was removed.

But Wendy Devine was not out of the woods yet. Not by a long shot.

In recovery, Devine suffered a spasm of her swollen larynx and required re-intubation. She was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit where she developed aspiration pneumonia. She developed sepsis, a dangerous, life-threatening condition that occurs when the body’s response to infection causes damage to other organs.

Devine spent a full seven days in the ICU and was hospitalized 11 days in all.

Devine’s attorney described her recovery as “tortuous and difficult.” She suffered “massive internal scarring, suffers with recurrent and severe pain…and faces the significant risk of being unable to conceive and/or carry a pregnancy to term.”

As a result to the horrifically botched abortion, Devine suffers “severe and permanently disability,” along with emotional anguish and fear.

deThe complaint alleges gross violations of patient care standards by Carhart and Germantown Reproductive Health Services. To back up that claim, an expert opinion (see pg. 12) was submitted with the complaint from a physician who reviewed Devine’s medical records and determined that her serious injuries were due to Carhart’s violation of standards of care.

Devine has filed a similar complaint in Baltimore County as well. Both cases are active and progressing.

Carhart also has other legal troubles to worry him. In May, the House Select Panel on Infant lives issued subpoenas to Carhart and GRHS for information related to his suspected involvement in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains, and incidents of babies that may have been born alive during late-term abortions conducted by him. The Select Panel continues to investigate him.

“So when Hillary Clinton voices support for late-term abortions, remember what happened to Wendy Devine and her dismembered baby. Remember what happened to dead Carhart abortion patients Jennifer Morbelli and Christin Gilbert, and the thousands upon thousands of other women who have suffered from risky late-term abortion procedures, and ask yourself whether, as a nation, we can tolerate such barbarity,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Please join me in voting for Donald Trump, who strongly opposes abortions like the one that maimed Carhart’s late-term abortion patient earlier this year.”
