Oklahoma Abortionist Charged with Racketeering, Faces 10 Years in Prison

By Cheryl Sullenger

Oklahoma City, OK — An Oklahoma abortionist who was arrested last week for prescribing abortion pills to women who were not pregnant has drawn another serious criminal count.

Thursday, the Oklahoma Attorney General’s office charged Naresh Patel, 62, with racketeering, a felony punishable by at least 10 years in jail.

The charges were all in relation to his Outpatient for Women abortion business, located in Oklahoma City.

“Kermit Gosnell was also charged and convicted of racketeering. Both have been accused of operating a corrupt organization. This is just another way that the two abortionists share similarities,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We pray for Patel’s conversion and hope that he finds Jesus while sitting in jail after his conviction.”

Operation Rescue had filed complaints with the Attorney General and Oklahoma Medical Board against Patel earlier this year after discovering evidence of abortion abuses in trash from his office supplied by a confidential informant. Cooperation between those two agencies led to Patel’s arrest.

After his arrest, authorities searched his house and abortion clinic and seized additional evidence.

Patel’s abortion business remains closed with no immediate plans to reopen until sometime “after the first of the year” according to a woman answering the phone at his abortion facility number.

The Medical Board has declined to issue an emergency suspension of his license to practice, but that seems to matter little with his abortion facility shut down.

Patel was recently sued for sexual harassment after an employee claimed that he repeatedly asked her for sexual favors. She alleges he forced her to conduct grisly tasks at his abortion facility after she refused her advances and that she quit after he attempted to rape her at his home.

Patel was acquitted in the 1990s on rape charges after three women came forward and pressed charges against him.

911 Recordings Reveal Two Serious Injuries in One Day at Haskell’s Late-Term Abortion Facility

By Cheryl Sullenger

Kettering, OH – Two 911 recordings obtained by Operation Rescue show that two separate abortion patients were hospitalized within three hours on December 11, 2014, after suffering serious injuries at Women’s Med Center, a late-term abortion facility owned by the notorious Martin Haskell. Women’s Med Center is located in the Dayton suburb of Kettering, Ohio.

The Women’s Med Center was not equipped to treat either of the life-threatening complications that women experienced that day.

The first call for help came at 12:16 p.m. on Thursday, December 11, 2014. A 23-year old woman was rushed to a nearby hospital suffering from uncontrolled vaginal bleeding.

During the call, laughing men can be heard clearly in the background. Operation Rescue was unable to determine whether the laughing occurred inside the abortion facility or at the 911 dispatch center. However, during a 911 call placed by Haskell on March 28, 2012, he can be heard laughing at a dispatcher’s offer of further emergency instructions while another patient suffered life-threatening seizures.

The second 911 call placed on December 11 came at 3:10 p.m. The 29-year old patient was suffering from abdominal pain, a symptom that often indicates serious internal injuries, such as uterine perforation or hemorrhage.

The abortionist on duty that day was Roslyn Kade, a long-time associate of Haskell’s who has beene involved with other abortion-related injuries. She also works for Planned Parenthood.

On February 29, 2012, Kade lost her unrestricted privileges at Christ Hospital and currently holds no privileges with any other hospital facility.

“Kade was apparently having a very bad day and the ones who suffered for it were the young women who entrusted her with their lives, only to be dumped on the local hospital emergency room physicians when things went south,” said Newman. “This is a case in point for why hospital privileges and transfer agreements are so critically important. They ensure that there is continuity of care and weed out incompetent abortionists who cannot meet the hospital’s high standards.”

Kade has been involved in other abortion abuses. In 2007, while working at Planned Parenthood, Kade was sued by parents whose then thirteen-year old daughter was impregnated by her soccer coach. Kade gave the young girl an abortion without obtaining parental consent or reporting the suspected incidence of child sexual abuse.

Earlier this year, the Ohio Department of Health won a lengthy legal battle to shut down Haskell’s Sharonville abortion facility for failing to maintain a required hospital transfer agreement or valid variance.

Currently, Haskell’s facility has no valid hospital transfer agreement as required for licensing, but continues to operate in Kettering while his application for license and variance renewal is pending.

“The Ohio Department of Health should refuse to renew the facility license of Haskell’s Kettering abortion clinic for the same reasons it shut down his Sharonville operation,” said Newman. “Women continue to suffer life-threatening abortion complications without the guarantee that they will receive adequate or timely treatment. Ohio authorities shouldn’t wait until someone dies before taking action to protect women.”

Why Was a Michigan Abortion Business Evicted for Second Time this Year?

By Cheryl Sullenger

West Bloomfield, MI — Michigan abortionist Michael Arthur Roth’s abortion business, the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center, was evicted last month from its second office space this year. Currently, his abortion business remains closed.

An eviction document provided to Operation Rescue by long-time pro-life activist Lynn Mills, shows that a court request for eviction from his office at 33200 West 14 Mile in West Bloomfield was filed on October 21, 2014. The eviction was ordered due to Roth’s violation of a provision of his lease.

Roth had until November 27, 2014, to vacate the premises. Photos taken through his office windows on November 25 show that the office was empty and Roth had already moved out.

Mills told Operation Rescue that she had conducted a literature drop just prior to Thanksgiving featuring information about Roth’s abortion business and his involvement in a tax fraud case. Roth moved out soon after.

“Public pressure of the kind used by Lynn Mills is very effective at exposing the ‘bad boys’ of the abortion cartel and forcing them out of business,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We applaud her efforts and those of others who also contributed to this pro-life victory.”

Earlier this year, Roth was evicted from his long-time office, located at 42450 West 12 Mile Road, Suite 205, in Novi, Michigan, which was the site of several large peaceful, pro-life sit-ins, or rescues, in the early 1990s.

Roth has a checkered history of Board discipline and malpractice suits related to botched abortion procedures. Some of the injuries he inflicted during abortions include perforated uteri and bowels, hemorrhage, and at least one abortion he did not finish because the abortion facility ran out of dilators of the size he needed to complete the procedure. One woman required a hysterectomy to save her life. Documents related to these incidents can be read at AbortionDocs.org.

Roth’s personal life was also troubled. He went through an ugly divorce in 2005 that resulted in his then-wife obtaining a personal protection order against her husband that specifically prohibited him from following her, approaching her in public, or prescribing any medications for her. She lived locked in the basement of their home during the divorce proceedings while he enjoyed the master bedroom, according to court documents.

Lynn Mills told Operation Rescue that she is thrilled with the fact that Roth is currently out of the abortion business, but also expressed some concerns.

“My joy is so great,” she said. “Please continue to pray for Roth and his conversion. He recently severed ties with another local multiple-mill abortionist. My concern is that out of desperation they will join forces one again.”

But for now, one very dangerous abortionist is shut down and there is one less shoddy abortion facility preying on vulnerable women and their defenseless babies, and that is a victory worth celebrating.
