McConnell Should Resign for Helping to Defeat Judge Roy Moore

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman continues to stand by his friend, Judge Roy Moore, in the face of unfounded 40-year old allegations of misconduct.

PRESS RELEASE

Montgomery, AL – It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not like Judge Roy Moore, who ran to fill the seat vacated by Jeff Sessions. McConnell endorsed his primary opponent, Luther Strange, and poured an estimated $30 million into a campaign against Moore.

When Strange was soundly rejected by the people of Alabama, and Moore became the GOP nominee, McConnell continued to oppose him.

At the first sign of an unproven 40-year old allegation of sexual misconduct against Moore in the waning weeks of the campaign, the GOP halted financial support for Moore’s campaign, and several Republicans withdrew their endorsements, when they should have maintained their support in the face of such obviously fake allegations. Instead, they allowed Moore to be tarred and feathered by the spurious attacks.

However, Mitch McConnell went a step further. He promised to never allow Moore to occupy his Senate seat, if he were to be elected, even though none of the allegations had ever been proved true in the four decades since they supposedly happened.

This sent a strong message to the electorate that Moore would never be accepted as a legitimate Senator, that the people of Alabama would be disenfranchised, and chaos would reign in the Senate.

“It is my opinion that Sen. Mitch McConnell heavily contributed to Moore’s defeat, and because that led to giving a seat away to a pro-abortion Democrat, he should resign immediately,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “McConnell has ensured that pro-life legislation will never pass, Planned Parenthood will never be defunded, and babies that can feel pain will continue to be aborted after the mid-point of pregnancy. He has made sure that the Trump agenda will stall out, and Congress will continue in gridlock. He has betrayed the will of the American people, who support the Trump agenda, especially when it comes to ending abortion. Sen. McConnell, please resign!”

California Organ Procurement Companies with Links to Hillary Clinton Admit Guilt in Illegal Body Parts Trafficking

By Cheryl Sullenger

Santa Ana, CA – Two Southern California organ procurement companies owned by the Ecuadorian Isaias crime family, have agreed to pay nearly $7.8 million in a settlement of a law suit brought by Orange County District Attorney Tony Rackauckas last year that alleges the companies broke state laws regarding the trafficking of human aborted baby body parts.

The companies, DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences have admitted guilt, and have been also ordered to pay $195,000 in penalties and cease all business activities in California within 180 days.

“This settlement seized all profits from DV Biologics and DaVinci Biosciences, which they acquired by viewing body parts as a commodity and illegally selling fetal tissues for valuable consideration. These companies will never be able to operate again in Orange County or the State of California,” stated District Attorney Rackauckas in a press release dated December 8, 2017.

According to the Orange County complaint, 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, which were then sold worldwide.

The companies has been referred to the Orange County District Attorney’s office for investigation and prosecution by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives.

This represents the first successful prosecution of an organ procurement company since the Center for Medical Progress released a series of undercover videos in 2015, which showed Planned Parenthood executives coldly discussing the sale of aborted baby tissue and organs in often graphic and shocking detail.

The Department of Justice confirmed this week that Planned Parenthood is under an active criminal investigation for the illegal sale of aborted baby remains.

Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue, who served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress, felt vindicated by the news.

“This case vindicates our often-maligned work at the Center for Medical Progress, and is the first of many victories to come. The Isaias family’s admission of guilt is very bad news for Planned Parenthood, but very good news for women and babies who were exploited by these businesses for profit,” Newman said. “We hope this case will soon lead to Congress defunding of Planned Parenthood and a vigorous criminal prosecution by the Department of Justice.”

In a story first reported by Operation Rescue, 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, in what became known as the Clinton “Pay for Play” scandal. 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.

“Hillary Clinton allowed a known crime family into the U.S. so they could sell Planned Parenthood’s aborted baby body parts for profit. This connects Clinton to the illegal baby parts trade, in addition to improperly giving special favors to criminals in return for financial donations. The FBI should include her in their ongoing investigation,” Newman said.

Newman Applauds Planned Parenthood Criminal Investigation Confirmed by DOJ


PRESS RELEASE

Washington, DC – A letter sent Thursday from the Department of Justice to Sen. Chuck Grassley, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, confirms that Planned Parenthood is indeed under investigation of criminal acts committed in the sale of aborted baby body parts, according to Fox News.

News broke in November that the Department of Justice had requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, obtained during its investigation into allegations that Planned Parenthood trafficked in aborted baby remains for profit. Sen. Grassley asked for confirmation that those unredacted documents would be used for investigative purposes.

Thursday’s letter from Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd, verified their investigation in what Fox News describes as a “rare confirmation” that a criminal investigation was ongoing.

The investigations were prompted by the 2015 release of a series of undercover recordings by the Center for Medical Progress, which clearly showed Planned Parenthood executives and others discussing potential deals for money – and in some cases, haggling to get the best prices – in exchange for organs and tissue procured from aborted babies.

“As a co-founder of the Center for Medical Progress, I am very proud our work in exposing Planned Parenthood’s criminal conduct. It is gratifying to learn that a criminal investigation of the nation’s largest abortion merchant is underway,” said Troy Newman, who serves as President of Operation Rescue.

“The videos show the true face of Planned Parenthood; one that is obsessed with exploiting every possible profit stream from their abortion business at the expense of the women they purport to serve,” Newman continued. “Greed, deception, and exploitation of the vulnerable are all hallmarks of Planned Parenthood’s nefarious activities.”

Newman and other CMP members continue to fight Federal lawsuits filed by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, which won an injunction to halt the release of further videos and barred the sharing videos with law enforcement officials even if they contained evidence of crimes.

Newman, who is represented by Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court earlier this year claiming the gag order is rife with constitutional violations. Earlier this month the Supreme Court ordered the abortion businesses to submit briefs in response. A decision from the Court on whether it will hear the case is expected next month.

“News of this investigation gives new urgency to our Supreme Court appeal. The DOJ needs access to all the evidence so justice can be properly done. Planned Parenthood must not be held above the law,” said Newman.

Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Transports Another Young Black Woman to Hospital in NYC

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY – For the eighth time this year, an ambulance has transported a woman from the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion facility on Margaret Sanger Square in New York to a local hospital.

During the incident, which took place on Saturday, December 2, 2017, an ambulance arrived at the abortion facility with lights flashing, but no siren. Emergency responders rushed immediately into Planned Parenthood, according to a witness who photographed the incident.

The witness told Operation Rescue that after about five minutes, a young Black woman walked out of Planned Parenthood on her own and climbed into the back of the ambulance. A man who accompanied her to the abortion facility joined her there a few minutes later.

The ambulance then rushed away, but only turned on sirens when it was about a block away from the Planned Parenthood facility.

Operation Rescue has documented several incidents where abortion facilities have asked for ambulances to respond with no lights and sirens. This practice actually delays emergency care for those in need. The situation was so serious at a Planned Parenthood facility in Missouri, for instance, that the State Legislature passed a law this year making it illegal to request no lights and no sirens when calling for an ambulance.

“This incident only adds to the bloody legacy of Margaret Sanger, the racist founder of Planned Parenthood, which is measured in dead babies, and maimed or dead women from predominately poor minority neighborhoods,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We have no idea how many of these eight women even survived their abortion injuries – and Planned Parenthood doesn’t want anyone to know, either. The shroud of secrecy they enjoy, with the help of state authorities, just serves to enable further abuses.”

So far this year, 57 medical emergencies requiring ambulance transport have been recorded by Operation Rescue at abortion facilities nationwide. Of those, 35 have occurred at Planned Parenthood centers.

Operation Rescue relies on pro-life activists who minister on the street at abortion facilities to report these incidents. However, many more actually take place outside the watchful eyes of pro-life supporters.

“What we see is just a small fraction of incidents involving ambulance transports at abortion facilities,” said Newman. “We encourage states to pass stronger reporting laws for abortion complications. I believe if every abortion clinic was legally required to report all abortion complications and deaths, the nation would be shocked at the numbers.”

UPDATE! Alive or Dead? What the Heck Happened To This Botched Abortion Victim?

UPDATE 11/29/2017: Thanks to our readers, we now have more answers. The position of the woman on the gurney has been clarified. She was actually laying on her right side in the fetal position with the restraint under her left arm. Her head cannot be seen in any of the photos. However, oxygen tubes are seen running to the area where her head would be. The conclusion is now that the patient was alive at the time of the transport, but in pain and in need of further care. We are thankful for the input from our readers and are grateful to have at least part of this mystery solved. As with any developing story, additional information has clarified this situation. The video description on YouTube.com has been edited to reflect this update. The article below has been edited to reflect this new information.

Hartford, CT – Disturbing photos have surfaced that show a woman bound at the neck to a gurney during a medical emergency at Hartford GYN Center on October 21, 2017.

The photos, which were taken by a pro-life activist who was on the scene when the emergency occurred, depicted a woman covered completely in white sheets. A sheet that covered her head appeared to be cinched at the neck. Update: However it was learned that the restraint was actually under the woman’s left arm. (See update above.)

Operation Rescue published a report about the incident last week that included a video featuring the actual 911 call placed by a Hartford GYN nurse. That call indicated that a patient was in the middle of an abortion procedure and was experiencing “excessive bleeding.” The abortion business requested an ambulance to transport the hemorrhaging woman to Hartford Hospital.

The troubling photos also showed the woman lying in the fetal position with her knees bent under the sheet.

“Is she alive or dead? Right now, we just don’t know, but it doesn’t look good,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

A search of recent obituaries in the Hartford area was inconclusive.

“We will keep researching this horrific incident until we get answers,” said Newman. “In the meantime, women should be warned that this abortion facility is not safe.”
