UNSAFE: Ambulance Transports 12th Patient from Unaccountable Milwaukee Abortion Facility

By Cheryl Sullenger

Milwaukee, WI – Affiliated Medical Services, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is an independent urban abortion facility that is no stranger to medical emergencies.

According to local activist Dan Miller, since February 2010, he has counted twelve ambulances that have transported abortion patients to local hospitals – including the most recent incident that took place on November 18, 2017.

A search for 911 records for the November 18th incident turned up empty, an indication that Affiliated Medical Services bypasses the 911 system to avoid any public records of the incident. Instead, the abortion business contacts Bell Critical Care Paramedic Ambulance Services directly – a practice that is known to be slower at summoning help that using the 911 exchange.

Without the diligent pro-life activists who have maintained a presence at Affiliated Women’s Services for years, there would be no record that this abortion facility had ever experienced an abortion complication, much less those that are so serious they require emergency assistance and hospitalization is required.

Activists recorded the arrival of the ambulance at the abortion facility at 10:15 a.m. Within minutes, paramedics removed a patient from an alley door and loaded her into the ambulance as clinic volunteers deployed sheets to block the injured woman from view.

According to the Affiliated Medical Services web site, the abortion business conducts abortions through 21 weeks of pregnancy at a cost from $525 and go up to $2,500, not including a $100 fee for a state-mandated informed consent appointment that is followed by a 24-hour reflection period.

A search of the online Wisconsin Department of Health Provider Search showed no record of a facility license for Affiliated Medical Services, even though high-risk surgical abortions through five months of pregnancy are done there.

“This abortion business is flying under the regulatory radar, and that is posing a serious danger to women,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “There are obviously patient care issues at Affiliated Medical Services that should be investigated by the Wisconsin Department of Health before anyone else is seriously injured or killed.”

Previous medical emergencies at Affiliated Medical Services include one on November 30, 2006, two transports that took place on April 8, 2011, and another on July 21, 2012.

San Diego Abortion Facility Where Abortionist Engaged in Demonic Rant Has Closed

By Cheryl Sullenger

San Diego, CA – FPA Women’s Health, a chain of California abortion facilities, has shut down its troubled office on Miramar Road in San Diego, effective on Friday, November 17, 2017.

The San Diego location was the site of an incident involving abortionist Robert Santella and pro-life activist Zephaniah Mel. Santella threatened Mel with a pair of surgical scissors during a bizarre demonic rant, that included hissing and a confession that he loved killing children during abortions.

That behavior, along with complaints of malpractice and botched abortions, resulted in Santella’s firing from the abortion chain, which he had been affiliated with for over 30 years. Santella was forced to surrender his medical license after the California Medical Board charged him with negligence and unprofessional conduct.

Operation Rescue confirmed that Santella’s medical license has been surrendered and his private office on College Avenue in San Diego, where he also conducted abortions, is also closed.

The FPA office was also the scene of several medical emergencies that required ambulance transport, including one in September 2015, when a mother accompanying her daughter for an abortion was forced to call an ambulance for her bleeding daughter when the FPA Women’s Health staff refused. Her action likely saved her daughter’s life.

FPA Women’s Health has had a presence in San Diego County since the 1980s. The high-volume abortion business, which once boasted that its “doctors” spent only three minutes per patient completing abortions, has been forced to move a number of times.

While located in La Mesa, California, in the 1990s, the FPA abortion facility was the site of numerous large pro-life sit-ins, that resulted in the arrests of several peaceful protesters. In early 2002, the abortion business’ landlord finally evicted them from their office. FPA relocated Sixth Avenue across from Balboa Park, until being forced to move again when the building they occupied was slated for demolition. Their most recent address on Miramar Road was considered an odd location since it was situated in the middle of a furniture mall.

Two years ago, a pro-life alternatives facility, Turning Point Pregnancy Resource Center, moved in next door to the abortion facility, and impacted FPA’s business by offering women assistance and positive alternatives to abortion.

Now, Operation Rescue has confirmed that the San Diego FPA abortion business is relocating once again, this time to the more conservative East County community of El Cajon. That facility is located at 1625 E. Main Street, Suite 202, in El Cajon — right next to an Albertson’s grocery store, which is sure to create tension in the community.

“We are thankful that this abortion business has been once again forced to move, thanks to the prayers and action of pro-life activists, who have been so faithful on the sidewalks throughout the decades. When abortion businesses relocate, it usually results in a loss of business – which means babies’ lives are spared,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We pray the El Cajon FPA office shuts down soon and has nowhere to relocate.”

911: Woman Bleeding Excessively in Middle of Abortion at Connecticut Abortion Facility

By Cheryl Sullenger

Hartford, CT – An abortion patient suffered “excessive bleeding” in the middle of an abortion procedure at Hartford GYN Center in Hartford, Connecticut, according to 911 records obtained by Operation Rescue.

A 911 call was placed by “Madeline,” a Hartford GYN nurse, at 10:01 a.m. on October 21, 2017. She indicated that the patient was in the middle of a “procedure” and was bleeding heavily. The woman was sedated, and it appeared that the clinic staff were going to under sedation while they continued the abortion procedure.

The ambulance was dispatched under “Priority 1,” which is used in the most urgent of cases. A witness on the scene told Operation Rescue that the woman was brought out of the abortion facility with “a sheet over her head.”

EMS unit 221 transported the bleeding woman to Hartford Hospital. The entire incident took 22 minutes.

Further information about the injured woman’s condition remains unknown.

Hartford GYN Center opened in 1981, and conducts abortions through 21 weeks of pregnancy. It is a member of the National Abortion Federation, a network of abortion facilities that has an over-all dubious safety record. The abortion business is part of a chain of five facilities operating under the Women’s Centers banner. Other chain locations are in Atlanta, Georgia; Cherry Hill, New Jersey; Delaware County, Delaware; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

From January 1 through November 18, 2017, Operation Rescue documented 56 medical emergencies nationwide that required ambulance transport directly from abortion facilities. This number is based on eye-witness reports and does not reflect every incident that occurs. It also does not count women who must seek emergency medical care after they have left the abortion facility.

“We have seen an uptick in the numbers of ambulances at abortion facilities this year, and have already exceeded the number of medical emergencies we recorded in 2016,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Things are not getting any better at our nation’s abortion businesses. If anything, they are more dangerous than ever.”

Operation Rescue tracks abortion-related medical emergencies at abortion facilities nationwide.

“Just based on the incidents we have documented, knowing that it is a small fraction of such incidents, it is obvious that the Abortion Cartel’s abortion complication stats that portray abortion as the safest medical procedure, are as fake as they can be.”

AG Sessions: Senate Investigation into Planned Parenthood’s Body Parts Scheme “Could Provide a Basis for Charges”

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – Attorney General Jeff Sessions testified before the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday at acknowledged that Planned Parenthood and others who may have participated in the illegal sale of aborted baby organs and tissue could be criminally charged once the FBI completes its investigation.

Rep. Trent Franks referenced a report published Monday by The Hill that the FBI had asked to view unredacted documents obtained by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s year-long investigation into allegations that Planned Parenthood and others engaged in the illegal sale of aborted baby body parts. That investigation was initiated by undercover videos released in 2015 by the Center for Medical Progress that clearly show Planned Parenthood executives haggling to get top dollar for aborted baby parts.

The Senate Judiciary Committee and the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives, which conducted a similar investigation, both referred Planned Parenthood organizations and several middle-man organ procurement companies to the Department of Justice for criminal investigation and prosecution.

Franks asked Sessions if any Senate investigation and subsequent referrals provided a sufficient basis to bring criminal charges on any “guilty party.”

Sessions responded, “Well, it depends on the substance of those Congressional findings, but they certainly provide a basis for starting an investigation and verifying the findings of the Congress, and could provide a basis for charges.”

Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who is a founding board member of the Center for Medical Progress and served while the undercover videos were being filed and produced, welcomed the news.

“When Attorney General Sessions was confirmed, I pledged to stand ready to assist him with access to our research and documentation in prosecuting abortion abusers including Planned Parenthood. That offer still stands,” he said.

“After listening for two years to Planned Parenthood lie about their involvement and stonewall two Congressional investigations, I am now hopeful that an FBI investigation will result in charges against Planned Parenthood criminals and their accomplices who broke the law,” said Newman continued. “Planned Parenthood tried to smear the video evidence as faked with a so-called forensic report that has been proven as phony as a three-dollar bill. Now we know the only thing that is fake is Planned Parenthood’s denials of wrongdoing.”

In June 2017, Newman wrote a letter to Attorney General Sessions asking for speedy action on the Congressional referrals.

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

Planned Parenthood and the National Abortion Federation sued Newman and other CMP officials in 2015 to block the release of further videos. They successfully obtained a gag order that was upheld by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which prevented Newman and others from releasing any of the forbidden videos to law enforcement even if they obtained evidence of crimes.

Newman and his attorneys with the American Center for Law and Justice, filed a petition with the Supreme Court challenging the gag order – a challenge that now takes on new urgency in light of the apparent ongoing FBI investigation.

A decision on if the Supreme Court will hear Newman’s petition is expected before the end of the year.

Operation Rescue Stands By Its Endorsement of Judge Moore for Senate; Calls for McConnell to Resign

PRESS RELEASE

Washington, D.C. – In light of the spurious, unproved allegations and attacks against Judge Roy Moore, who is a candidate in Alabama’s special senatorial election, Operation Rescue, an outspoken national pro-life group, stands firmly behind Judge Moore and reiterates its endorsement of him for the U.S. Senate.

“I know Judge Roy Moore to be a dedicated Christian and social conservative who will not compromise on the matters of life. He is staunchly pro-life, and a true defender of religious freedom. I urge all the good people of Alabama to cast their votes for Judge Roy Moore for Senate,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue, in his August 9, 2017, endorsement of Judge Moore’s Senate Campaign.

Those words are as true today as when they were in August.

In this day when even an unfounded allegation of sexual misconduct can ruin careers, it is no accident that this particular allegation was brought against Judge Moore at this time. His defeat would further destabilize the U.S. Senate and keep it from accomplishing President Trump’s agenda, which is opposed by Democrats, Establishment Republicans, globalists, and pro-abortionists.

“The attacks on Judge Moore are nothing more than dirty politics by those who oppose his staunch conservative Christian values. I don’t believe them for one moment,” said Newman. “After forty years in public service, the fact that the unfounded allegations that are today splashed across headlines have arisen with less than a month to go before this important election is no co-incidence. Establishment Republicans, such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, should be ashamed of themselves for jumping to rash conclusions when calling for Moore’s withdrawal from the race.”

On September 27, 2017, Operation Rescue called for the resignation of McConnell due to his failed leadership and inability to defund Planned Parenthood.

“If anyone should resign, it should be Mitch McConnell,” said Newman. “I double down on our call for Mitch McConnell to step aside after his shameful display of prejudging Judge Moore and for his failed leadership in the Senate.”
