StemExpress Faces Contempt Charges in Move to Halt Stonewalling of Subpoenaed Records

Washington, DC – In a big move announced yesterday, the U.S. House Select Panel on Infant Lives will vote Wednesday on contempt charges against StemExpress and its owner, Cate Dyer.

Dyer and her organ procurement company have repeatedly stonewalled subpoenas issued by the Select Panel for financial information that would prove not only that Planned Parenthood profited from the sale of fresh aborted baby body parts to Stem Express, but also how much it profited.

The sale of aborted baby remains for profit is a violation of Federal Law.

The Select Panel was created to investigate evidence that surfaced last year through a series of undercover videos produced by the Center for Medical Progress. The videos showed Planned Parenthood executives and abortionists bargaining for the sale of aborted baby remains for profit to a number of organ procurement companies and research laboratories

“This is the piece of the puzzle we hoped the Select Panel would uncover,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “As with many white collar crimes, the financial data is the key piece of evidence. The fact that Dyer is risking contempt charges to keep this information out of the Select Panel’s hands indicates it must be strongly incriminating to her, her company, and her business partners at Planned Parenthood.”

Newman is named in two Federal lawsuits filed by Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation, which are seeking to block the release of additional videos and evidence and financially ruin those involved in the undercover journalistic study that revealed their obvious ghoulish behavior toward aborted baby remains and their alleged criminal conduct.

The Select Panel also announced that in a separate matter, it will vote to release a May 11, 2016, deposition taken as part of the Panel’s investigation in to the University of New Mexico (UNM).

On June 23, 2016, the Select Panel sent a letter to Attorney General Hector H. Balderas, Jr. recommending criminal charges and further investigation into UNM and the largest late-term abortion facility in the country, Southwestern Women’s Options, both located in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

During their investigation, the Select Panel uncovered evidence that UNM obtained aborted baby remains from Southwestern Women’s Options, which were then used for experimentation by UNM or sold to others for experimentation in violation of state and federal law.

In return, Southwestern Women’s Options abortionists received numerous employee benefits at UNM that provided professional and financial gain.

Nearly three months later, Attorney General Balderas has yet to charge UNM and Southwestern Women’s Options.

In August, Dr. Paul Roth, chancellor of the University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center and dean of the School of Medicine, who oversaw the aborted baby tissue harvesting scheme, admitted on video that staff from the University of New Mexico used brains of aborted babies for dissection by high school students at a summer camp.

This admission essentially justified the Select Panel’s decision to seek criminal charges against UNM and SWO.

The Select Panel will meet Wednesday, September 21, 2016, at 2:00 p.m. ET in HVC-210 at the United States Capitol. A live stream of the meeting and links to the documents will be available at this link.

Operation Rescue will also post the documents when they are available.

Operation Rescue’s Troy Newman Endorses Donald J. Trump for President

Press Release
Contact: Troy Newman at 316-683-6790 or Cheryl Sullenger at 316-516-3034.

Wichita, Kansas – Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, is pleased to announce today his endorsement of Donald J. Trump for President of the United States. Operation Rescue is a cutting-edge pro-life organization based in Wichita, Kansas, which works through peaceful, legal means to expose abortion abuses and end abortion.

Newman is a leading pro-life activist, speaker, and author who, during the primary season, actively supported the candidacy of Sen. Ted Cruz. Once Cruz suspended his campaign, Newman took a hard look at Trump, even attending a meeting with Trump and religious leaders in New York City on June 21, 2016.

“After examining Trump’s position on life issues and his assurances that he will appoint conservative, pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, I am convinced that Trump offers our best hope of pushing back the Culture of Death in America,” said Newman. “We know all too well what we will get with Hillary Clinton, and that is more abortion, more tax funding of abortion, and favors for her campaign contributors at Planned Parenthood. A Clinton presidency will result in more dead babies, and this we cannot allow.”

Newman understands the moral conflicts some hesitant pro-life adherents have expressed, but warns against sitting out this election or writing in a name with no chance of winning.

“America stands at a crossroads. A Clinton presidency will fundamentally change our nation to the point that is will be unrecognizable to those of us who grew up in the 50’s and 60’s,” said Newman. “Her rabid support for abortion without restriction will create a political climate that will make it nearly impossible for us to end the shedding of innocent blood through abortion once and for all.

“On the other hand, Trump has promised to stand strongly for life and appoint pro-life justices to the Supreme Court. His Vice-Presidential running mate, Gov. Mike Pence, is a pro-life warrior who has promised to work toward ending abortion. No other GOP ticket in history has made such commitments to the Pro-Life Movement.

“While no political candidate is a perfect person, we must engage the political system as it stands today for the sake of protecting innocent life. We cannot leave the results of this critical election for others to decide. Please join me in casting a vote this November for the pro-life Trump/Pence ticket.”

Pro-Life Leaders Confirm that Planned Parenthood Kalamazoo Was Involved in Patient Death

Castleman-Carpentier-2

Press Statement for Immediate Release

Kalamazoo, MI – Pro-life leaders looking into an abortion-related death have confirmed that Cree Erwin, 24, of Battle Creek, Michigan, received an abortion at the Planned Parenthood facility in Kalamazoo on June 30, 2016. The site of her abortion had been previously unidentified.

Erwin died on July 3, 2016, just three days after her Planned Parenthood abortion and hours after being seen at a nearby emergency room complaining of abortion complications she was experiencing.

It has also been confirmed that Planned Parenthood abortionist Laura Denise Castleman provided Erwin with a prescription for a pain medication that was to be filled later at a separate pharmacy. It remains unclear whether she actually conducted Erwin’s abortion, or if that was done by another Planned Parenthood abortionist.

Castleman’s Drug Control Location License for the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood lapsed on January 31, 2016. In Michigan, medical providers must obtain a Drug Control Location License for every facility where they routinely dispense drugs.

In addition to her employment with Planned Parenthood, Castleman has served as an abortion training faculty member for the National Abortion Federation, and co-authored an abortion training manual.

Castleman is suspected of involvement in at least three other abortion-related injuries in Kalamazoo and Ann Arbor, contributing to a nationwide pattern of abortion injuries and deaths at Planned Parenthood facilities.

On September 10, 2015, an ambulance was summoned for a 15-year old abortion patient of the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood who was struggling to breathe. An abortion worker asked the 911 dispatcher to send the ambulance with no lights or sirens despite the patient’s life-threatening, Priority 1, condition.

A complaint has been filed by Operation Rescue against the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood, seeking a revocation of its facility license that permits it to conduct abortions. Meanwhile, a homicide investigation conducted by the Battle Creek Police Department remains open pending the release of Erwin’s autopsy report, which may not be available for weeks or months.

“If Cree Erwin had not visited the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood for an abortion, she would be alive today. I urge the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs not to turn a blind eye to the pattern of abuses we are seeing at Planned Parenthood facilities. The Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood is not safe and must be shut down to protect other women from ending up on a slab in the morgue,” said Cheryl Sullenger, Senior Vice President of Operation Rescue.

“While we mourn with the family of Cree Erwin, we are compelled to sound the alarm about the growing ranks of women and infants killed, or reproductively maimed in a Planned Parenthood. The number of women leaving a Planned Parenthood in an ambulance amid allegations of harvesting baby body parts reminds us of two things: Planned Parenthood’s population control mission and their unfettered greed. Both must be stopped in their tracks before one more vibrant young woman loses her life,” said Catherine Davis, Founding Core Member for the National Black Pro-Life Coalition.

“Planned Parenthood of Kalamazoo, under the leadership of Lori Carpentier, CEO of Planned Parenthood of Michigan, has a history of not functioning within basic medical standards and flying under the radar with the apparent cooperation of the State of Michigan. The Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood continued to operate without a proper facility license from September 2012, until January 2016. How does the State of Michigan let this happen? I’m calling for Carpentier to first make a public apology to the family of Cree Erwin, and then step down from her position. Immediately!” said Lynn Mills of Pro-Life Detroit.
