Most Dangerous Planned Parenthood in America Wants Court to Block Safety Laws

STLPP 03072015 resized-2

An Operation Rescue Special Report
By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – Pro-life leaders from a coalition group TeamPLAY gathered on Monday for press conferences in five at-risk Missouri cities to ring the alarm about dangerous practices at the two Planned Parenthood organizations operating in that state.

That same day, Planned Parenthood countered by filing a motion for a preliminary injunction seeking to block abortion safety laws so their substandard abortion businesses could be dangerously expanded.

Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood Great Plains (CHPP) and Reproductive Health Services of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region (RHSPP) are asking a Federal Court to block enforcement portions of Missouri’s Ambulatory Surgery Center Licensing Law that require facilities performing abortions to meet the same standards every other Ambulatory Surgical Facility must meet. They also want blocked two provisions that require abortionists to maintain hospital admitting privileges within 15 minutes of the facility where they conduct abortions.

Operation Rescue obtained court documents filed with the motion that include declarations from CHPP CEO Laura McQuade, RHSPP CEO Mary Kogut, and RHSPP Medical Director David L. Eisenberg, and others that contain statements that contradict facts or rely on sources that lack credibility.

St. Louis Planned Parenthood

Currently, there is only one active abortion facility in Missouri, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis, which is considered by many to be the most dangerous abortion facility in the nation due to alarmingly frequent ambulance transports that take place there.

While CEO Mary Kogut stated in her declaration in support of the preliminary injunction that the St. Louis abortion facility has an “excellent safety record,” that statement does not pass the smell test in light of 911 records and other evidence.

Documentation obtained in April 2016, by Operation Rescue through legal action against the St. Louis Fire Department shows 58 medical emergencies, categorized by type of problem and priority level that took place at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion facility between January 1, 2009, and April 16, 2016.

The most common injury was categorized as “Dangerous or Possibly Dangerous Hemorrhage.” Others listed included abdominal pain, stroke, seizure, allergic reaction, and more.

Since then, there have been there have been five additional patient transports to a local hospital for critical care that the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility was incapable of providing. The most recent incident occurred on November 23, 2016 — the day before Thanksgiving.

That documentation was used by TeamPLAY as proof that serious safety issues already exist at Planned Parenthood under existing law that continue to endanger the lives of women every day. If Missouri’s safety laws are blocked, there will be nothing to stop Planned Parenthood from spreading their hazardous abortion business across the state.

Now, RHSP — the same Planned Parenthood organization which has seriously injured women at a rate of one every 42 days — wants to expand its unsafe brand of abortion services to facilities in Springfield and Joplin. Both would offer the abortion pill, while the Springfield facility would also conduct surgical abortions.

Neither David Eisenberg nor Ronald Yeomans, who Planned Parenthood intends to employ at these two facilities, qualify for hospital privileges. To make matters worse, neither facility can qualify for a hospital transfer agreement, which is much easier to get.

Expansion Motive

There is a motive for Planned Parenthood wanting to expand abortion services, and it has little to do with “women’s reproductive health.” Out of all services provided by Planned Parenthood, abortion is by far the most profitable.

However, abortions have steadily decreased over the years in Missouri as part of a nationwide trend. As demand drops, so do profits. That is why Planned Parenthood needs to cast their hooks into new ponds by marketing abortion to new population groups, which have heretofore gotten by just fine without abortion businesses preying upon them in their communities.

Kogut stated in her declaration to the court that because of Missouri abortion safety laws that prevent her from conducting abortions in Springfield and Joplin, “RHS and its physicians are injured in the pursuit of their business and professions…” (Emphasis added)

Kogut complains that as long as she and her abortionists are prevented by law from exploiting two proposed new locations, they suffer from inability to make more money, the pursuit of every business.

Her solution is not to raise her business to a standard that meets the law, but rather, she would dispense of the law altogether so their corners-cutting practices can continue. This puts Planned Parenthood’s profits above any consideration for patient safety.

When looking more closely the safety issues posed by the two Planned Parenthood organizations, it becomes clear that patient welfare is already a low priority.

Eisenberg

David Eisenberg, who serves as RHCPP’s Medical Director, boasts in his declaration of his abortion experience, having trained at least 50 men and women how to do abortions. He informed the court that abortion is “one of the safest medical procedures” in the nation. He indicated a 2013 study noted that only 0.05% (5 in 10,000) of first trimester surgical abortion patients require hospitalization. (There were 5,416 abortions done in Missouri in 2013, the last year statistics are available from the Center for Disease Control, with abortions decreasing every year.)

However, Eisenberg quoted that complication statistic from a study done by Planned Parenthood abortionists, including Deborah Nucatola. She is on the staff of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which was recently referred to the Department of Justice by the Senate Judiciary Committee for further investigation for participation in the suspected illegal trafficking of aborted baby parts for profit.

Because of Nucatola’s employment with Planned Parenthood, which has a vested interest in making sure the public at least thinks abortion is safe, her study and others cited by Eisenberg are tainted by the bias of a pro-abortion agenda and lack credibility.

Eisenberg’s own record of overseeing abortions that result in life-threatening patient injuries that require hospitalization on the average of every 42 days – conservatively twice the complication rate he cited, not counting women who are hospitalized after they leave the abortion facility – speaks volumes about the lack of safety at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis.

While claiming to conduct “extremely safe” abortions at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, ambulance and injury records prove Eisenberg is simply lying to the court.

Planned Parenthood Great Plains

CHPP, based in Overland Park, Kansas, is seeking to expand the abortion business to Kansas City, Missouri, and Columbia. The Kansas City facility would offer medication abortions while the Columbia facility would offer medical and surgical abortions. Abortions would be done by Ronald Yeomans and Colleen McNicholas, who used to dispense the abortion pill in Columbia before a State Senate Committee discovered that her “refer and follow” hospital “privileges” were bogus, and simply an attempt to circumvent Missouri law. This led to the revocation of “refer and follow” designation and a halt to abortions in Columbia last year.

Such duplicity might have been expected from this particular Planned Parenthood organization.

In a 2007 case, CHPP faced 107 criminal counts in Kansas related to evidence they committed illegal late-term abortions and manufactured evidence to cover it up. Operation Rescue acquired documentation that indicates the criminal case against Planned Parenthood was dismissed due to political corruption. An unknown Planned Parenthood supporter inside the Democratically-controlled Attorney General’s office destroyed the evidence against Planned Parenthood, causing the case to be dismissed without ever being considered on its merits.

Unfounded Accusations

In the declaration made by Laura McQuade in support of the proposed injunction, she states that Planned Parenthood’s Columbia facility has offered surgical and/or medication abortions on and off for years, but has experienced difficulty maintaining qualified abortionists because her abortion providers could not meet hospital privilege requirements.

McQuade launches into accusations that harassment from pro-life activists drove potential abortionists away, but Kathy Forck of TeamPlay, who routinely engages in peaceful First Amendment-protected activity at the Columbia Planned Parenthood, insists that the harassment described by McQuade never took place.

“No one ever made harassing phone calls or followed anyone home. It just never happened,” said Forck.

“If McQuade is going to make accusations like that she needs to provide documentation to support them. I suspect there was no documentation presented because she is lying about it in order to gain sympathy from the court,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

Columbia Inspection

But that isn’t the only falsehood in McQuade’s declaration. She also states that for many years in Columbia, her facility “safely provided” abortions.

However, a letter dated November 2, 2016, from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, to CHPP detailed numerous violations affecting patient safety that were uncovered during an October 19, 2016, inspection of the Columbia facility.

Violations included a failure to “establish a program for identifying and preventing infections and for maintaining a safe environment.”

If infection control and safety programs were nonexistent as of a few weeks ago, they could not have existed when abortions were previously done in Columbia.

At the Columbia Planned Parenthood, inspectors also discovered the facility lacked a proper quality assurance program. The one it did have had “removed elements required by Missouri rules some time before” related to the following:

• Intraoperative and postoperative complications. (For example, when complications occurred among Planned Parenthood’s patients, they were not logged and no follow-up action to prevent similar complications was ever recorded.)
• All cases that resulted in a length of stay of more than twelve (12) hours.
• All cases in which the gestational age was determined to be beyond eighteen (18) weeks.

The facility was required to “show evidence of actions taken as a result of the identification of the problems,” yet in Columbia, no problems were ever identified.

“This does not mean that no problems existed. It means that they did not record problems in a likely attempt to cover them up,” said Newman. “That means problems can exist there for a very long time, and that poses a real issue when it comes to patient safety.”

Other deficiencies existed. The Planned Parenthood facility failed to have the required preservative for fetal remains solution on site, and lacked adequate refrigerator space to preserve the aborted babies. It had no agreement with a pathologist for the examination of the remains as required by law or with a waste sterilizer company for the disposal of the human tissue.

The letter described serious infection control problems that displayed a sloppy, lazy attitude toward patient safety.

• It failed to have the necessary supplies to properly disinfect the vaginal ultrasound probe, leaving women vulnerable to infections and the spread of sexually transmitted diseases.
• No logs were kept to show that the autoclave was working properly or being used correctly.

“If these people can’t properly sterilize an instrument, then why in the world should they be allowed to conduct surgeries? What Planned Parenthood is really asking for is special favors so they can conduct shoddy, back-alley style abortions with contaminated surgical equipment without accountability,” said Newman.

Kansas City Inspection

The Kansas City facility was cited for numerous safety deficiencies that affect patient safety after an inspection was conducted on October 19, 2016.

Violations included:

• Vaginal speculums were never packaged for proper sterilization, and were stored in such a way as to ensure contamination.
• The facility used a dangerous disinfection room set up that allowed for cross contamination of surgical instruments.
• Failed to maintain policies for the disinfection of semi-critical instruments.
• There was no Personal Protective Equipment (gloves, gowns, etc.) available for use by staff in the Disinfection Room.
• Failed to follow safe medication practices by storing medications in the Disinfection Room where they were prone to contamination.
• Stored highly contaminated corrugated shipping boxes in the same room with the “sterilized” equipment, posing a high risk of cross contamination.

The facility was also cited for violating a 2010 Settlement Agreement, where CHPP agreed to basic minimum standards in exchange for permission to conduct abortions.

Gurney Access

Both Planned Parenthood organizations complained to the court about having to maintain hallways wide enough to accommodate a gurney. They insist that this rule has no effect on patient safety.

The family of Karnamaya Mongar, among others, might disagree. In 2009, Mongar underwent a second trimester abortion at the West Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Women’s Medical Society. Her abortionist, Kermit Gosnell, conducted abortions in unsanitary conditions with instruments (including the vaginal ultrasound probe) that were never properly sterilized. When Mongar went into cardiac arrest during her abortion due to a drug overdose, paramedics could not extract her from the building because no gurney would fit down the narrow hallways. An emergency exit was padlocked shut and no one could find the key. It is thought that the delay in emergency care caused by the narrow hallways contributed to Mongar’s death.

Gosnell was later convicted of Involuntary Manslaughter in Mongar’s death.

Conditions at Planned Parenthood in Columbia are frighteningly reminiscent on several points to those at Gosnell’s “House of Horrors.”

Shut Them Down

Instead of dumping patient safety laws so Planned Parenthood can expand its lucrative abortion business, the existing substandard facilities — the St. Louis facility in particular — should be shut down in the interest of public safety.

TeamPLAY has established a website WomenMustBeSafe.com, where there is an open letter that can be downloaded and sent to Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, asking him to keep women safe from Planned Parenthood harmful practices.

Operation Rescue joins with Missouri’s TeamPLAY in calling for a thorough investigation into Planned Parenthood’s high number of abortion-related injuries, and for the immediate emergency suspension its St. Louis facility license, pending the outcome of a full investigation into patient safety issues.

‘Pay to Slay’: Foreign Crime Family Reached Hillary Clinton for Immigration Favors so They Could Run a Baby Parts Harvesting Business

Planned Parenthood was the source of aborted baby remains that two Isaias family businesses sold all over the world

davinci-cap

By Cheryl Sullenger

Orange County, CA – The wealthy Ecuadorian Isaias family that owns DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, which have been sued by the Orange County District Attorney’s office for illegally profiting from the sale of aborted baby tissue it obtained from Planned Parenthood, came to America under a cloud of criminal allegations and scandal.

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.

isaias-brothers

During that time, the family made hundreds of thousands of dollars in contributions to Democratic and Republican political campaigns. 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.

This protection of the Isaias fugitives strained relationships between the U.S. and Ecuador, which were already tense due to another perhaps better known fugitive. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange had sought asylum from Ecuador, which has since refused U.S. demands to force him from his sanctuary inside the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, where he continues to be a thorn in the side to the Obama Administration as well as Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.

While all this was happening in 2012, Isaias family members already in the U.S. contributed about $100,000 to the Obama Victory fund – conveniently timed to precede requests from the family with additional help to bring in Robert Isaias’s daughters, Estefania, and later, Maria, into the country.

American diplomats had designated the sisters as “alien smugglers,” and accused them of bringing maids and other household workers into the country using false visas then leaving them at their family’s posh Coral Gables, Florida, home. A ban was placed on their immigration.

Nevertheless, after additional large donations to the Obama campaign and to New Jersey’s Democratic Senator Robert Mendez, who aggressively intervened with the State Department on their behalf even though the family lived in Florida, not New Jersey, the ban was lifted and the women were allowed into the U.S.

In addition to the protection of the U.S. government that their large contributions had bought, the Isaias family had another very lucrative reason to come to America. The family has numerous business holdings adding to their vast wealth that included bioscience, telecommunications, and real estate markets.

estefano-jr-partyingMembers of the Isaias family incorporated DaVinci Biosciences in 2007, followed by the incorporation of a sister company, DV Biologics, in 2009. Last year the businesses located to Yorba Linda, in Orange County, where District Attorney Tony Rackauckas filed suit against them on October 11, 2016, for profiting from the illegal sale of aborted baby remains. He is seeking $1.6 million from the companies – mere chump change for a family as wealthy as the Isaiases.

“Some call the buying of influence ‘Pay to Play’ or ‘Pay to Stay.’ In the case of the Isaias family, I call it ‘Pay to Slay,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who served as a founding board member for the Center of Medical Progress, the group that brought the illegal, but very lucrative, market in aborted baby remains to public attention last year through a series of undercover videos.

According to the Orange County suit, 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.

The tissue and often stem cells derived from the tissue was marked up ten times over costs, and sometimes more, creating a profitable revenue stream for the Isaias family. U.S. companies and institutions were heavily price-gouged, while foreign entities got deep discounts that still allowed for a hefty profit. The Isaias baby parts businesses shipped the remains of aborted American babies all over the world.

Also troubling was the fact that in a 2009 press release, a DaVinci Biosciences agent noted they experimented on people in the Hospital Luis Vernaza in Guayaquil, Ecuador.

The Isaias family continues to enjoy a wealthy high life in America, safe in the knowledge that their fortunes — made from the exploitation of their fellow human beings — have bought the influence of the Obama Administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

And as if looting a bank, buying influence, illegally profiting from the sale of aborted babies, and exploiting sick third-world country patients isn’t low enough, one of the Isaias family members has sunk even lower.

Estafano Isaias, Jr., who is a co-founder of DaVinci Biosciences and DV Biologics, and is said to manage the companies’ finances, is also the CEO of Fyre TV, a web-based subscription pornography business.

“This is the kind of people that can buy off Hillary Clinton,” said Newman. “It makes no difference if they are criminals, flesh peddlers, and smut dealers that are exploiting American and Ecuadorian people for profit. For Clinton, if you have enough money, anything goes. This is just another reason why her brand of corruption must not be allowed into the White House.”

Abortionist LeRoy Carhart Sued for a Seriously Botched Late-Term Abortion

Carhart-captioned

By Cheryl Sullenger

Germantown, MD — The topic of late-term abortions was one of great public interest during the recent election season. Now, Operation Rescue has obtained court documents that confirm once again that the most-used form of late-term abortion does in fact dismember a baby, and can cause devastating harm to women as well.

Wendy Devine, 34, is alleging in a negligence/malpractice suit filed on September 27, 2016, in Montgomery County, Maryland, that LeRoy Carhart so severely botched her late-term abortion earlier this year that she nearly died. She endured such extreme injuries that she continues to suffer permanent disability and will likely never bear another child.

Carhart is perhaps the best known abortionist in the country that will openly conduct abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy, and does so at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, Maryland.

Once his home state of Nebraska passed a ban on abortions after 20 weeks in 2010, Carhart was forced to relocate his lucrative third-trimester abortion practice elsewhere. He chose Maryland for two reasons. First, Maryland has no gestational limit on abortion that would limit his business. Secondly, there were few laws to protect women from shoddy abortion practices. It was the perfect environment for someone like Carhart, who was as prone to an above average number of botched abortions, as Operation Rescue witnessed first-hand when he worked at a late-term abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas, until it closed in 2009.

But Wendy Devine had no idea about Carhart’s penchant for injuring – and even killing – his abortion patients. (Two women have died due third trimester abortions done by Carhart: Christin Gilbert in 2005 and Jennifer Morbelli in 2013.)

Devine reported to the Germantown Reproductive Health Services on January 18, 2016, trusting that Carhart and his clinic staff were the experts in the field of abortion they said they were, and competent to conduct her late-term abortion.

That misplaced trust nearly proved fatal.

During her first appointment, Devine was given two injections into her uterine cavity through the abdominal wall, then had cervical dilators inserted. The injections were meant to end the life of her baby prior to a planned Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) dismemberment abortion scheduled for the next day. D&E abortions are commonly used in the majority of late-term abortions — especially if the abortionist is in a hurry. The rarer Induction Method, which births an intact — but still very dead — baby, requires three to four days to complete. The D&E method can be done much quicker.

Afterwards, Devine was sent back to a nearby hotel, where she had made arrangements to stay during the two-day abortion process.

The next day, Devine dutifully reported back to Germantown Reproductive Health Services for the completion of her D&E abortion. Once the procedure was done, Devine immediately knew something was wrong.

According to the malpractice complaint she filed in Montgomery County, a lethargic Devine complained of severe abdominal pain. Because she was bleeding so heavily, she also suffered from very low blood pressure, which caused her heart to race as it struggled to pump an insufficient amount of blood through her system.

Throughout the day, her condition deteriorated to the point that at 7:41 p.m. – long after closing hours – a 911 call was finally placed by a GRHS employee.

But to listen to the 911 call for help, one would think the emergency transport was a simple precautionary act.

On the heavily redacted 911 recording, obtained by Operation Rescue, a cheery clinic worker is heard asking for transport for a patient for observation, downplaying the seriousness of the injuries, which become apparent later in the call.

Carhart and his wife, Mary Lou, could be seen on security camera footage leaving the abortion facility immediately after the ambulance, but in the opposite direction.

Devine’s court records filled in the details that the redacted recording left out.

When Devine finally arrived at the hospital at 8:35 p.m., she was bleeding heavily, was extremely weak, and still suffering severe abdominal pain. Lab tests revealed that her hematocrit and hemoglobin numbers were at “panic levels.”

Normal hematocrit levels for females is 36 to 48%, but Devine’s measured only 16%. Normal hemoglobin levels for females is 12-16, while hers came in at 5.4.

Hospital E.R. doctors called in a gynecologist who examined her and prepped her for surgery.

At 10:20 p.m., Devine was rolled into the emergency room for an exploratory laparoscopy, but what was discovered was so serious that the procedure was converted to an open laparotomy and an additional specialist was called in.

Here is what surgeons found:

• The presence of a large amount of blood in the abdominal cavity between the inner abdominal wall and the organs, which was evacuated.
• The presence of a huge hematoma, or blood clot, containing over one liter of blood, which was removed by the specialist. (This does not take into account the amount of blood lost vaginally or the blood removed from the abdominal cavity before the hematoma could be reached. The average human is supposed to have 4.7 to 5.5 liters.)
• Once the blood and hematoma were out of the way, surgeons discovered that the entire right side of her uterus had been torn open from top to bottom.
Tear in the right uterine artery that required surgical closure. This likely accounted for the internal hemorrhaging.
• The right ovary was severely damaged and left hanging by a thin piece of tissue. It was completely removed.
Significant tear in the tissue that holds the lower colon in place.

Once all her injuries were repaired in what had become an “extensive” surgery, according to Devine’s complaint, she was transferred to the recovery room and the tube that held open her airways was removed.

But Wendy Devine was not out of the woods yet. Not by a long shot.

In recovery, Devine suffered a spasm of her swollen larynx and required re-intubation. She was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit where she developed aspiration pneumonia. She developed sepsis, a dangerous, life-threatening condition that occurs when the body’s response to infection causes damage to other organs.

Devine spent a full seven days in the ICU and was hospitalized 11 days in all.

Devine’s attorney described her recovery as “tortuous and difficult.” She suffered “massive internal scarring, suffers with recurrent and severe pain…and faces the significant risk of being unable to conceive and/or carry a pregnancy to term.”

As a result to the horrifically botched abortion, Devine suffers “severe and permanently disability,” along with emotional anguish and fear.

deThe complaint alleges gross violations of patient care standards by Carhart and Germantown Reproductive Health Services. To back up that claim, an expert opinion (see pg. 12) was submitted with the complaint from a physician who reviewed Devine’s medical records and determined that her serious injuries were due to Carhart’s violation of standards of care.

Devine has filed a similar complaint in Baltimore County as well. Both cases are active and progressing.

Carhart also has other legal troubles to worry him. In May, the House Select Panel on Infant lives issued subpoenas to Carhart and GRHS for information related to his suspected involvement in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby remains, and incidents of babies that may have been born alive during late-term abortions conducted by him. The Select Panel continues to investigate him.

“So when the left voices support for late-term abortions, remember what happened to Wendy Devine and her dismembered baby. Remember what happened to dead Carhart abortion patients Jennifer Morbelli and Christin Gilbert, and the thousands upon thousands of other women who have suffered from risky late-term abortion procedures, and ask yourself whether, as a nation, we can tolerate such barbarity,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
