Abortionist Patel Arrested, Jailed, After Attorney General Investigation Sparked by Operation Rescue Complaint

Oklahoma City, OK – This morning, police raided the Outpatient Services for Women in Oklahoma City and arrested abortionist Nareshkumar Patel for obtaining money from patients under false pretenses based on an undercover investigation by the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office.

Operation Rescue had filed a complaint with the Attorney General’s office earlier this year after receiving incriminating information about Patel and his abortion business from an informant and conducting its own investigation. Operation Rescue published a special report detailing information obtained on Patel along with his sordid history.

Calls to Patel’s abortion facility this morning informed callers that no one is available to take calls.

“We are very excited about this morning’s arrest. This is the result of a collaborative effort that involved gritty pro-life work, active enforcement of state laws,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We also want to especially thank AUL for their contributions to efforts to bring Patel to justice.”

Missing 911 Call: Ambulance Rushes Sobbing Abortion Patient from Shoddy Florida Clinic

Jacksonville, FL – Video shot by pro-life activists on the scene at the Florida Women’s Center abortion facility in Jacksonville, shows dramatic footage of a sobbing abortion patient being loaded into an awaiting ambulance while the injured patient’s friend stood nearby crying and distraught.

The incident occurred on September 4, 2014, at an abortion clinic owned and operated by abortionist Patrick J. Kelly. Just five weeks before, state inspectors cited him — ironically — for failing to provide his staff with adequate training in medical emergencies.

“Given the demeanor of everyone in that video, that patient’s injuries appeared to be quite serious. We don’t know just how serious or if she even survived,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Every medical emergency we are able to document represents dozens more that happen outside the presence of pro-life activists. Whatever happened to the woman in the video, has probably happened to others.”

Kelly owns, operates, and acts as the administrator for the Florida Women’s Center according to three deficiency reports obtained by Operation Rescue. The reports were based on facility inspections that took place between April 10, 2009, and July 29, 2014.

In fact, Kelly was cited in all three deficiency reports for failing to provide adequate training for his staff in the areas of safety, infection control, and incident reporting.

During a 2011 inspection, Kelly made absurd excuses for not properly training his staff in incident reporting procedures, raising questions about whether incidents were ever reported.

“Physician revealed that the facility has not had any incidents to report therefore there was no need for staff training,” an inspector noted.

During a 2014 inspection, Kelly insisted that his staff was trained, but could produce no evidence to substantiate his claim.

Allison Aranda, an attorney with Life Legal Defense Foundation, which works closely with Operation Rescue reports she attempted to obtain the public records of the 911 call in order to learn more about September’s medical emergency. However, her request was not met by authorities, who told her that all the records for that day had somehow been erased.

Aranda told Operation Rescue that Life Legal Defense Foundation will be filing a complaint against Kelly with the Florida Board of Medicine.

“Kelly is a shoddy provider that has been fined and repeatedly has refused to adequately train his staff. Perhaps that contributed to emergency hospitalization of patient in September. In any case, traditional discipline appears to have little effect on him. We can only expect more incident like this until Kelly is banished from the practice of medicine for good,” said Newman.

Ambulance Transports 27th Woman from St. Louis Planned Parenthood Abortion Center

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO — For the twenty-seventh time in the past five years, an ambulance arrived at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on Forest Parkway in St. Louis, Missouri, and transported a woman to a local hospital.

A mobile medical center nurse manager with ThriVe, who was on the scene at the time, snapped a series of photos of the incident, which took place between 2 and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, November 12, 2014.

“Notice no lights or sirens [were] on while the ambulance is idling and upon leaving: typical of each incident,” she reported, noting also that the ambulances’ lights and sirens are routinely turned off before they get to the Planned Parenthood parking lot.

A group of Planned Parenthood employees deployed a tan tarp to block a clear view from the street while the woman was wheeled out of the abortion facility to an awaiting ambulance.

“It is a shame that while so many are showing concern for alleged racial policies within nearby police departments, there has been no concern shown for the disproportionate racial targeting of women for abortions by Planned Parenthood, which operates in a primarily minority neighborhood in St. Louis. Neither has there been any public demonstrations of concern for the dozens of mostly African-American women whose lives are being endangered by substandard practices and facilities at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Attempts by Operation Rescue to obtain 911 records, which are usually considered public records, has been thwarted by city officials that appear to be protecting Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.

With the assistance of the Alliance Defending Freedom, Operation Rescue sued the St. Louis Fire Department in May, 2014, to obtain public information that was over-zealously redacted from 911 records it had received through the Freedom of Information Act. That case is pending.

The St. Louis Planned Parenthood is the last remaining abortion clinic in Missouri, which may explain the resistance to providing information that could potentially lead to regulatory board action that would damage or close Planned Parenthood’s abortion business.

An inspection done on the facility in January, 2013, revealed filthy conditions including rusty surgical tables, suction abortion machines, IV stands, and other equipment and “copious amounts of dust” everywhere. Other violations included poor or non-existent infection control protocols and expired, improperly handed drugs.

“We consider the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in St. Louis to be among the most dangerous abortion facilities in the country,” said Newman. “We are grateful to local citizens who have documented the long list of medical emergencies there so that the public can be made aware of the truth about the dangers of Planned Parenthood’s shoddy practices that routinely endanger the lives of women.”

Below is a list of dates that witnesses have seen ambulances transporting women from the St. Louis Planned Parenthood, some with links to further information about the emergencies.
