Ambulance Transports Salem Planned Parenthood Patient

By Cheryl Sullenger

Salem, OR – Activists in Salem, Oregon, have informed Operation Rescue that a woman was transported by ambulance from the Salem Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Friday, November 14, 2014.

Members of the Corban University Students for Life Club witnessed and photographed the incident.

According to one witness, the ambulance arrived with no lights or sirens and was greeted by a Planned Parenthood employee. Eventually, a woman on a stretcher was wheeled out of the Planned Parenthood office and loaded into the awaiting ambulance.

“They did not want us to see her, so they put up a screen as she was taken out of the building,” one of the students witnessing it said. “But it did not work. We could see the woman’s shadow through the screen.”

“While many state that we need legal abortions to protect women from unsanitary abortion conditions, this event is a simple reminder legal abortion clinics are not safe and legal abortion still hurts women. In Oregon, we have no health standards for our abortion clinics and this must change,” said Bethany Janzen. President of Corban University Students for Life Club.

Abortionist Mark David Nichols has known affiliations with the Salem Planned Parenthood.

“Once again, a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic has hospitalized a woman suffering a serious condition that the facility was not equipped to handle. This adds to the growing documentation that is painting a startling picture of abortion dangers, which completely contradicts Planned Parenthood’s ‘safe and legal’ mantra,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “The condition of the woman remains unknown, and with the veil of secrecy that surrounds abortion in this country, we may never know if that woman survived.”

Michigan Board Suspends License of “Michigan Gosnell” for Six Months, One Day

By Cheryl Sullenger

Lansing, MI — Abortionist Robert Alexander appeared before the Michigan Board of Medicine today for a final hearing on charges of gross negligence and incompetence after he was caught operating a squalid abortion facility in Muskegon that rivaled conditions found at Kermit Gosnell’s Philadelphia “House of Horror.”

Despite the fact that an administrative judge found that Alexander, who suffers from mental illness, was not fit to practice medicine and recommended his permanent license revocation, the Board voted to suspend Alexander’s license for 6 months and 1 day. The also told Alexander that he would have to re-apply to have his license reinstated, at which time he would be required to pay a fine of $75,000.

If Alexander does not reapply for licensing, his license would not be automatically renewed after his suspension and he would continue to be barred from practicing in Michigan.

It was Operation Rescue’s complaint, founded on a former employee’s testimony, which served as the basis for the disciplinary action.

The decision that allows Alexander an option to eventually petition for reinstatement of his medical license is disturbing given the fact that Administrative Law Judge Shawn Downey recommend permanent revocation for Alexander, stating concerns for his mental illnesses and lack of credibility during his testimony at a hearing on September 3, 2014.

In addition, Alexander’s medical license has twice been revoked in Michigan, first in 1990 and again in 1994. Both times, the Board reissued licenses to Alexander.

“Given the facts that Alexander suffers from mental illness, has a long string of documented botched abortions, and was operating in such squalid conditions that it made Kermit Gosnell look like ‘Mr. Good Housekeeping,’ it is unfathomable that this Board could even entertain the possibility that Alexander could soon resume his practice,” said Troy Newman President of Operation Rescue. “We can only hope that Alexander never has access to $75,000 to pay his fine and get his license back. If anyone should be permanently barred from the practice of medicine, it is Robert Alexander.”

Alexander had ridiculously claimed that the wretched conditions found at his Muskegon abortion facility in December, 2012, were staged by pro-life groups. He changed his story to shift responsibility onto a former employee who worked with Operation Rescue to blow the whistle on Alexander. Later, he blamed his own mental illness for the mess that included moldy, leaky ceilings, bloody surgical instruments, rusty equipment, and the contents of at least one abortion that was left to decompose in the abortion machine over a long Christmas break.

A former Medical Board Director, Dr. George Shade, enabled Alexander to continue his incompetent practices by improperly protecting him from further discipline by ordering that there be no investigation of a 2009 complaint filed by the obstetrician of two patients that suffered botched abortions by Alexander. The scandal created by that incident was the basis for a change in Michigan law that prohibits board members from acting unilaterally.

“Corruption has kept Alexander in business for years when he should have been banned from the practice of medicine years ago. Women suffered injury and illness as a result,” said Newman. “We doubt that Alexander will be financially able to petition to restore his license, but if he does, the responsibility for any misery he is sure to inflict will be shared by the Michigan Medical Board.”

Major Pro-Life Groups Call for a National Strike and Protests to End Abortion

By Tara Shaver

Albuquerque, NM- Protest ABQ is joined by national Pro-Life organizations, including Operation Rescue, Created Equal, and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust in declaring a national call to action: a National Strike and Protests on January 22-23, 2015.

national strike logoAmerica has endured 41 years of legalized abortion, now is the time to stand together in solidarity as a people of conscience to end the killing of children in the womb, says Fr. Stephen Imbarrato, founder of Protest ABQ in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The use of strikes in various venues have been and continue to be effective in producing change. This one-of-a-kind call for two days of national strike and protests has the potential of sending a resounding message to the leaders of this nation that the American people want abortion to end.

The yearly anniversary of Roe vs. Wade continues to be a day of mourning across the pro-life community. Each year thousands gather in Washington D.C. to protest against this evil.

However, to step up our call to end abortion, we are encouraging all like-minded people throughout the country not to go to work or spend money on Thursday, January 22nd and Friday, January 23rd, 2015, but instead to join together for prayer, fasting and PROTEST in their localities.

All participants must commit to following the model of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in their protests.
“Even if we were to be beaten, screamed at, or abused, we will not respond in kind,” stated Fr. Imbarrato.

Protests will be held in front of state capitol buildings, busy intersections, and abortion facilities. No place is off limits and no one who profits from, supports, or condones pre-born child killing is immune from these protests.

Together, we are calling on national religious and pro-life leaders to join us and encourage all like-minded people to participate in a national strike.

Fr. Imbaratto stated, “Let January 22, 2015, be the start of the national strike, which shuts this country down so that our government and the American people understand the urgency of ending legalized pre-born child-killing. It is time that the successful strategies of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Polish Solidarity Movement led by Lech Walesa and Fr.Jerzy Popieluszko be implemented in the United States to end this injustice!”

We will not condone violence of any kind by anyone in this National Strike. Indeed, we are protesting the use of violence — against children in the womb. We will peacefully and prayerfully protest this violence.

“We encourage men and women of conscience across America to join us for this first-ever National Strike and Protest against abortion by standing publicly and peacefully against child-killing on January 22-23, 2015,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Let’s send a powerful message to America that we must stop abortion now!”
