Planned Parenthood Desperately Sought Meeting with CA AG to Keep Blood Money for Abortions Flowing

By Cheryl Sullenger

Sacramento, CA — New documents obtained by Operation Rescue reveal Planned Parenthood’s attempt to use the State of California as a tool to challenge any potential defunding in the current efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Operation Rescue received the records from the Office of the California Attorney General as the result of a public records request.

On March 17, 2017, Celinda Vazquez, Vice President of Public Affairs for Planned Parenthood Los Angeles, sent an e-mail marked “High” importance to Attorney General Xavier Bacerra, that included a letter from Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California requesting a meeting to discuss “potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood.”

The letter, signed by Kathy Kneer, President and CEO of Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California, and Vazquez seemed to summon Bacerra to a meeting. The letter stated:

We write to request a meeting to discuss the potential litigation in the event of defunding Planned Parenthood and the repeal of the American Health Care Act, including the prohibition on abortion coverage.

The eight Planned Parenthood affiliate CEOs from across the state would be included in this meeting.

For scheduling purposes, please contact Lauren Jeglinski at [email address].

Thank you for your attention to this important matter.

“This letter did not seem to give Bacerra much of a choice on whether he would attend the meeting. It is obvious that Planned Parenthood is the one really running the State of California,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is clear that Planned Parenthood is desperately attempting to preserve their tax funding in any way possible, especially their abortion funding through Medicaid reimbursements, which is a huge cash cow for them.”

Perhaps not coincidently, California’s treasurer announced on June 17, 2017, that Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California would receive a $20 million grant in light of Congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood.

“Any lawsuit brought by California against the Congressional defunding of Planned Parenthood is simply political pandering to the abortion cartel without the best interests of the public in mind,” said Newman.

In the past 18 months, Operation Rescue has documented 51 medical emergencies requiring emergency treatment and hospitalization at Planned Parenthood affiliates nationwide, including the death of at least one patient, Cree Erwin-Shepard, who died from a botched abortion she received last year from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

“Maimed women and dead babies are the true business of Planned Parenthood, and it time that we, as taxpayers, stop propping up this failing abortion business with our hard-earned tax dollars, which could be of real help to women if redirected to legitimate health providers,” said Newman.

Pro-Life Group Seeks Urgency for DOJ Investigations into Planned Parenthood’s Baby Parts Scheme

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – Operation Rescue is asking U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to urgently investigate and prosecute suspected criminal conduct on the part of Planned Parenthood, three organ procurement companies, and a Texas abortionist that were referred to the Department of Justice by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives and the Senate Judiciary Committee last December.

The House Select Panel and the Senate Judiciary Committee resubmitted the criminal referrals to Sessions once he became U.S. Attorney General earlier this year.

The criminal referrals are now over six months old, yet there is no indication that the Department of Justice has taken any action on them. The Congressional referrals are related to the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains for profit and other serious crimes associated with late-term abortions.

“Since the conduct alleged in the criminal referrals is so severe that it is literally placing lives at risk in some instances, we are urging Attorney General Sessions to aggressively pursue these cases in the interest of justice, and to protect the vulnerable from further harm,” said Operation Rescue president Troy Newman.

Among those that have been referred to the Department of Justice for investigation and possible prosecution are Planned Parenthood Federation of America and four of its California affiliates:

• Planned Parenthood Mar Monte.
• Planned Parenthood Los Angeles.
• Planned Parenthood Shasta Pacific (Northern California).
• Planned Parenthood of the Pacific Southwest.

In addition, Planned Parenthood’s partners in the scheme to profit from aborted baby remains, which have been the subject of Congressional criminal referrals are:

• StemExpress, LLC.
• Advanced Bioscience Resources, Inc.
• Novogenix Laboratories, LLC.

A final criminal referral of Texas abortionist Douglas Karpen was made to the Department of Justice by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives.

In 2013, Operation Rescue released a report based on information provided by four former Karpen employees. These women alleged that they witnessed the killings of babies who were born alive during possibly illegal late-term abortions by abortionist Karpen. They claimed that Karpen twisted their heads nearly off or cut their necks while they were still moving, in a similar way that Pennsylvania abortionist Kermit Gosnell killed babies born alive at his squalid “House of Horrors” clinic. Gosnell was convicted of three counts of first degree murder for the deaths of three born-alive babies and hundreds of other crimes.

“Needless to say, these allegations are very serious, and if true, are literally putting innocent lives in grave danger,” stated Newman in his June 23, 2017, letter to Sessions. “Because of that, I encourage you to pursue criminal investigations and prosecutions, if warranted, against the Planned Parenthood organizations, the organ procurement companies, and the Texas abortion provider with all urgency in order to protect women and their babies from harm, and in the interest of justice.”

Newman has also sent letters to New Mexico Attorney General Hector Balderas and Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi urging both Top Cops to aggressively pursue investigations into criminal referrals made in their states by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives.

In New Mexico, the University of New Mexico and a very late-term abortion business, Southwestern Women’s Options, have been accused of violating state and federal laws related to the sale of aborted baby remains and informed consent.

Southwestern Women’s Options, which is one of only five abortion facilities nationwide that openly conduct abortions throughout the third trimester of pregnancy, is the sole provider of aborted baby remains to UNM.

In a ghoulish admission included in the Select Panel’s final report, Dr. Paul Roth, Chancellor of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and Dean of the School of Medicine publicly confessed that UNM had used brains of aborted babies for dissection by high school students at a summer camp.

In Florida, the Select Panel noted in its criminal referral of Presidential Women’s Services, an abortion business located in West Palm Beach, that it and its partner, Stem Express routinely violated FL. Stat. §873.05, which makes it unlawful for any person to knowingly sell, donate, transfer, or purchase fetal remains obtained from an abortion.

Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi has acknowledged that an investigation is ongoing, but results of the investigation have not been forthcoming in over six months since the criminal referrals were made.

“By sending these letters to U.S. Attorney General Sessions and the two state attorneys general, we are trying to instill prosecutors with a sense of urgency,” said Newman. “The longer these investigations drag out, the longer women and their babies will be placed at risk, and the greater the potential that evidence of crimes will be covered up. We must demand that those who have broken the law be brought speedily to justice.”

Newman to AG Sessions

Man, Young Child Witness Loved One Taken from Planned Parenthood by Ambulance

Twenty-third Planned Parenthood medical emergency in five months makes defunding Planned Parenthood an urgent necessity.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bremerton, WA – As a man and a very young girl paced in the parking lot of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Bremerton, Washington, two ambulances and a fire unit responded to a medical emergency that appeared to involve their loved one.

This represents the 23rd time an ambulance has been spotted outside a Planned Parenthood center this year.

Video of the incident was taken on June 7, 2017, by Laurie Coykendall, leader of the Bremerton area chapter of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, who provided it to Operation Rescue.

A fire unit was already on the scene when the first ambulance crew arrived and took a gurney into Planned Parenthood. A short time later, they came out with the empty gurney.

Soon, a second ambulance manned by paramedics arrived and entered Planned Parenthood. It is believed that the first ambulance was only equipped for “Basic Life Support.” The second ambulance of paramedics would have been equipped with “Advanced Life Support” capabilities, indicating the patient’s situation may have been more serious than expected.

When the emergency responders began to interact with the man and young girl, it became apparent that the woman involved in the medical emergency was somehow related to them.

The woman was taken out of the Planned Parenthood facility on a gurney completely covered with a sheet. The man and the little girl followed the ambulance in a private vehicle when it left Planned Parenthood.

“Twenty-three women in five months have walked into a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, only to be brought out on a gurney, while our tax money continues to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s life-destructive quackery,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “As the Senate considers legislation – possibly next week — to deny further funding to Planned Parenthood, I urge everyone to call their Senators today and let them know that Planned Parenthood must be defunded in the new health care bill. This is not negotiable.”
