Florida Court Blocks Surgical Abortions at Kissimmee Planned Parenthood

Kissimmee, FL – A Florida Court of Appeals has ruled that Planned Parenthood’s recently opened facility in Kissimmee cannot provide surgical abortions because the procedures violate restrictions placed on facilities in the medical park where the abortion clinic is located.

Planned Parenthood located to the Oak Commons Medical Park, owned by MMB Properties, and opened in July 2014, under the false pretenses of being a “doctor’s office.”

The “declaration of restrictions” for facilities within the Oak Commons Medical Park clearly states that property cannot be used as an “Outpatient Surgical Center.”

At first, Planned Parenthood attempted to argue that the abortions they refer to as “in office” procedures do not constitute “surgery,” but dropped that spurious argument upon appeal.

The Court’s ruling lifts a stay on a previous injunction issued last year and allows the injunction to once again take effect.

However, the 8,800 square foot Planned Parenthood facility, which is an affiliate of Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando, Inc., is allowed to continue providing the abortion pill, at least for now.

“This isn’t the first time Planned Parenthood has used deception to open an abortion business, and it probably won’t be the last,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “No one wants to an abortion clinic on their property because they know it will drive away business from other offices and ultimately devalue their investment. About the only way Planned Parenthood can relocate is to lie about what they actually do. But this time they were caught and held accountable for their deception.”

With the loss of the highly profitable surgical abortions, there is now some doubt about whether Planned Parenthood’s Kissimmee office can be financially solvent.

“It may be that this huge building will become an economic albatross for Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando. It would be poetic justice if its own deceptive behavior led to its financial ruin,” said Newman.

Now that the Kissimmee Planned Parenthood can no longer sell surgical abortions, the number of surgical abortion clinics left in the U.S. stands at 547, down 74 percent from 2,176 clinics in 1991.

Protest Thursday: Four 911 Recordings Describe Abortion-Related Complications at Texas Planned Parenthood

Activists will protest at the Austin Planned Parenthood on Thursday to call attention to Planned Parenthood’s targeting of African-American women and other minorities, who suffer the most from abortion abuses.

Houston, Texas – As Infowars.com is launching a protest at Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas, Operation Rescue has released four 911 records related to medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility in Houston.

The 911 calls were placed on January 31, February 6, February 25, and February 26, 2015.

According to the Infowars.com web site, “Infowarriors and pro-life activists are encouraged to come and peacefully protest Planned Parenthood’s admitted targeting of the black community and all innocent children, as outlined by founder Margaret Sanger.”

Protest Details:
Time: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST
Date: Thursday, May 21
Location: 201 E Ben White Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

The Houston Planned Parenthood, where the recent medical emergencies took place, is located an area that targets poor urban women of color.

“There is an old adage that says actions speak louder than words. After hospitalizing four women in less than 30 days, Planned Parenthood can no longer pretend to care about women,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Planned Parenthood clinics are not equipped to cope with even the most common abortion complications and must call for emergency assistance and transport when abortions go wrong. And they appear to go wrong all too often at the Houston Planned Parenthood, where unfortunately Black and Hispanic women are bearing the brunt of the abuse.”

According to the 911 records, Planned Parenthood’s Director of Nursing, Margo Trentwood, placed a call to 911 on January 31 at 12:43 p.m. requesting a medical transport for a 19-year old patient who was experiencing vaginal bleeding and other unspecified complications after a “medical procedure.” An ambulance transported the woman to a nearby hospital.

Listen to the 911 call from January 31, 2015:

As previously reported by Operation Rescue, on February 6, 2015, at 2:20 p.m. a Planned Parenthood employee who identified herself as Cecelia, requested an emergency transport for a patient suffering a possible uterine perforation. She described the woman as “awake and alert.”

A perforation is when the cannula, a plastic tube used to suction out the aborted baby body parts, or some other instrument is pushed through the soft wall of the uterus into the abdominal cavity. This can cause hemorrhaging and infection if not promptly treated, and can sometimes cause damage to the bladder, colon, intestines, or other internal organs and structures.

An unusual call to 911 was placed on February 25, 2015 at 10:29 a.m. The Planned Parenthood caller hung up, then when 911 called back, the dispatcher was placed on hold. Finally, an employee that identified herself as Nora Harper, told the dispatcher that she had a patient suffering from vaginal bleeding who required emergency transport to the hospital.

Listen to the 911 call from February 25, 2015:

The following day, on February 26, 2015, another call was placed to 911 at 4:26 p.m. A Planned Parenthood employee identified as Nadia called for an emergency transport of a patient suffering a possible ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

A ruptured ectopic pregnancy can occur when an abortionist fails to confirm that the pregnancy is in the uterus and gives either a surgical or medication abortion. In those cases, the pregnancy continues to grow in the fallopian tube, which cannot expand enough to support a pregnancy. Once the baby gets too big, the fallopian tube painfully ruptures, creating a life-threatening medical emergency.

Listen to the 911 call from February 26, 2015:

For example, on August 20, 2010, another Planned Parenthood abortionist Aqua Don Umoren, conducted a suction abortion on Roberta Clark at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Birmingham, Alabama. Umoren insisted the pregnancy was in the uterus, however, the patient was actually experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. She received the abortion and was set home thinking everything was fine, but continued to suffer nausea and lower-quadrant abdominal pain. He later reported to an emergency room and was forced to undergo emergency surgery to remove a 13-week pregnancy and her right fallopian tube. She sued Umoren and Planned Parenthood for malpractice.

It is not known if the Houston Planned Parenthood patient experienced a similar situation during the February 26 emergency, but the possibility does exists.

Abortionists at the Houston Planned Parenthood include Ann Irene Schutt-Aine, Paul Martin Fine, and Soren John Vindekilde.

Planned Parenthood in Houston has a long history of injuring women, including the following examples.

On August 23, 2012, 911 records show that a patient hemorrhaged after abortion at Planned Parenthood in Houston.

During a 911 call placed on December, 14, 2013, from the towering Houston Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the caller is heard using medical abbreviations and “shorthand” terminology to conceal the fact that an abortion 33-year old patient was suffering uncontrolled bleeding and heavy blood loss.

But the tactic backfired and served only to confuse the dispatcher and delay emergency care to the hemorrhaging abortion patient, who was eventually transported to Ben Taub Hospital in Houston.

Listen to the full 911 recording from December 14, 2013:

In fact, Operation Rescue determined from data found in court records that as many as 1,000 women are hospitalized in Texas each year due to abortion complications.

While all these incidents took place at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Houston, Operation Rescue has documented dozens of similar emergencies at Planned Parenthood clinics across America.

In 2015 alone, Operation Rescue has documented 14 abortion-related medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood facilities in eight states, including California, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Washington.

“Planned Parenthood poses a particular danger to poor women of color, who they aggressively target for abortions. If ‘Black Lives Matter’ to Planned Parenthood, they would stop marketing abortions to Blacks and other minority women,” said Newman.

On Anniversary of Gosnell Murder Conviction, Protections for Late-Term Babies Imminent

UPDATE!! Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Passes US House by a vote of 242-184!

House to vote on Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act with new provisions to ensure as many babies survive as possible.

Washington, DC – Two years ago today, a jury walked into a Philadelphia courtroom and convicted abortionist Kermit Gosnell on three counts of murder. But this was anything but a routine murder case.

The victims were tiny babies in the late stages of pregnancy who were born alive during shoddy abortions at Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’ abortion mill, then intentionally murdered by snipping their spinal cords through the backs of their necks while the infants struggled for life. The murder trial was extensively covered by Operation Rescue, which was in the courtroom for most of the trial.

Evidence presented during that case horrified many who heard of it, including Representative Trent Franks (R-AZ). Franks made it his business to seek protections for babies like those murdered by Gosnell.

Today, two years later, a vote is scheduled on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced by Franks earlier this year, which will halt nearly all abortions after 20 weeks gestation, when babies are known to feel pain.

After the delay of a promised vote in January, new language has been added to ensure that as many babies as possible are given a chance at life.

A controversial rape exception has been modified to provide counseling for rape victims at least 48 hours in advance. If an abortion is done under the rape exception, the abortion may only be done in the manner in which “provides the best opportunity for the unborn child to survive.”

“This would mean there will be no more Gosnells in America. It could also mean no more fatal digoxin injections into the hearts of babies 20 weeks and older, no more dismemberment of these children, and no more babies being born into toilets, which we find all barbaric methods of killing pre-born children that are currently going on today,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman, who was arrested on March 25 with other pro-life leaders outside Speaker John Boehner’s office while protesting the delay in a vote on the late-term abortion ban. “In essence, all babies that reach 20 weeks gestation would either be completely protected, or in very rare cases, would be afforded at least a chance at life.”

The new language provides that in the extremely rare event that an abortion at 20 weeks or later is done under a narrow rape exception, a physician trained in neo-natal resuscitation must be present during the abortion and provide the child with medical care to give the child the best opportunity at survival.

“While this may not be a perfect scenario, this legislation will save thousands of lives a year. Banning late-term abortions is something Operation Rescue has directly worked to accomplish for the past 13 years beginning with our work in Wichita, Kansas, where we relocated our office in 2002. This bill means a lot to us, but it means even more to the babies it will protect from a brutal, inhumane death,” said Newman.

The Center for Disease Control reports that there were 7,325 abortions in the U.S. in 2011 that were done on babies over 22 weeks gestation and older. This number is considered low because of several states that do not report abortion numbers.

“We estimate that approximately 10,000 babies will be spared yearly due to this legislation,” said Newman. “Any time one can save that many lives – or even one life — it would be immoral not to do it.”

A vote in the House is expected today and should soon be followed by a vote in the Senate. President Barack Obama, a radical supporter of unfettered abortion, has voted to veto the bill.

“We are praying for a miracle override or maybe even a change of heart that will make this bill become law as soon as possible,” said Newman. “A few years ago, no one would have thought this kind of legislation could ever be introduced. Nothing is impossible.”
