Abortion Number Drop to All Time Lows: “When Abortion Clinics Close, Lives are Saved”

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – Just days before the nation marks the 44th memorial of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, the Guttmacher Institute released a survey of 2014 abortion numbers that show abortions have dropped to their lowest level since the 1973 ruling that decriminalized abortion in the U.S. According to the survey, abortion numbers have decreased by 14 percent since 2011.

The question no one seems to be able to definitively answer – and the authors of the survey did not address – is why?

Operation Rescue has been monitoring abortion facilities for years and conducts its own annual survey, which shows abortion businesses have been steadily declining since 1991. That year, there were 2,176 surgical abortion facilities in the U.S. Today, there are 517 – a decrease of 76 percent.

To directly correlate it to the abortion-supporting Guttmacher Institute survey, since 2011, there has been a 23 percent reduction in surgical abortion facilities.

While abortion is decreasing nationwide, the drop is particularly sharp in states where abortion facilities close, according to data found in state abortion statistic reports.

“When abortion clinics close, lives are saved,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “When there are no abortion businesses in a community actively marketing abortions to women, abortions decrease. Abortion businesses create a fake ‘need’ for women to get abortions through aggressive marketing campaigns. Take away the supply, and we find there is little actual demand.”

Operation Rescue has documented shocking abuses found within the Abortion Cartel and has used the Internet and social media to expose those abuses to the public. Our documentation has been used to support pro-life laws and complaints against shoddy abortion providers that have resulted in disciplinary action and even criminal convictions – all of which have shuttered abortion offices.

Operation Rescue’s research shows that the primary reason abortion facilities are closing is their own failure to comply with the most rudimentary medical health standards and laws.

“It is common to find abortion facilities that don’t properly sterilize surgical instruments or have unqualified staff,” said Newman. “When states enforce existing safety standards and abortion laws, we see abortion facilities close.”

But Operation Rescue notes that women don’t have to face the challenges of unexpected pregnancy alone. There are over 5,250 pregnancy help centers in the U.S. that offer free assistance to pregnant women. These centers outnumber abortion facilities by over 10 to 1.

One Planned Parenthood Abortionist is Out of a Job. Here’s Why.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – One Planned Parenthood abortionist is out of a job as a consequence of November’s election.

Planned Parenthood’s Nicola Moore, a traveling abortionist (some say “fly-by-night”) was employed by the Clinton Global Initiative, which is now shutting down, according to documents obtained by Operation Rescue.

Moore served as a “Women’s Health Clinical Advisor” for the Clinton Health Access Initiative, a subset organization of the Clinton Global Initiative, which openly partnered with Moore’s other employer, Planned Parenthood. Together, their purpose was to distribute birth control and address “young people’s access to sexual and reproductive health care,” especially in Africa and Latin America.

“Reproductive health care” is, of course, the Abortion Cartel’s favorite code phrase for abortion.

The Clinton Global Initiative came under fire during the 2016 Presidential Campaign for using the Clinton Global Initiative as little more than a “slush fund” for the Clinton’s “pay to play” scheme, in which foreign countries and the wealthy elite would make hefty multi-million dollar donations in exchange for political favors.

One such scheme first reported by Operation Rescue, involved payments made by an Ecuadorian crime family in exchange for help with immigration to the U.S. to avoid lengthy prison sentences. That family founded the California organ procurement company DV Biologics, which has been sued by the Orange County District Attorney for illegally profiting from the sale of aborted baby body remains.

After Clinton’s defeat, donations to the Clinton Global Initiative have reportedly dried up.

“The closure of the Clinton Global Initiative is a welcome outcome of the Presidential election. Its demise puts an end to unprecedented corruption through which abortion was promoted around the globe,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Ambulance Transports Woman with Breathing Difficulties from Unsanitary Abortion Center

By Cheryl Sullenger

Dallas, TX – An ambulance was called to Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas, Texas, on January 12, 2017, to aid a woman who was removed from the abortion facility in a wheel chair prior to being loaded into the ambulance.

According to radio communications obtained by Operation Rescue, an ambulance was dispatched to the abortion facility at 12:21 pm. The recording indicated that the woman in need of emergency care was having difficulty breathing.

Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center (SWSC) is considered a high-volume abortion facility, conducting approximately 50 surgical abortions per day. It is owned and operated by aging abortionist Curtis Boyd, who turns 80 in March and is said to still conduct surgical abortions there.

Boyd is perhaps best known as the owner of Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the largest late-term abortion facility in the U.S. That facility was recently referred to the New Mexico Attorney General’s office for criminal prosecution related to the illegal sale of aborted baby remains and failing to provide informed consent to women.

SWSC is licensed as an “Ambulatory Surgical Center,” which supposedly requires it to maintain a higher standard than facilities licensed as “Abortion Clinics.”

However, the most recent inspection report available for SWSC, dated November 24, 2015, tells a different story about horrific conditions women have been subjected to there.

Within the 22 pages of violations were found a litany of problems, including untrained staff, unsanitary conditions, failure to maintain the sterility of surgical instruments, and failure to follow up with women who were given abortion drugs, to name a few.

However, perhaps the most shocking finding was related to SWSC’s storage and disposal of contaminated waste and aborted baby remains.

Inspectors found the Biohazard Room packed “floor to ceiling” with bags of soiled linens and biohazard boxes. There was a refrigerator that contained aborted baby remains, but the room was so junky, that the inspector could not access that refrigerator.

On the second day of the inspection, bags of dirty linens were found crammed into nearly every available space, including the patient recovery room. Again, access to the refrigerator storing aborted baby remains was not possible due to the obstructions, which the staff never bothered to remove.

If the storage refrigerator could not be accessed, one can only wonder how the remains from the day’s abortions could possibly be refrigerated, and how it was possible for a disposal firm to collect the refrigerated remains.

Unfortunately, SWSC isn’t unique when it comes to badly failing health and safety inspections. The most recent inspection reports available for each abortion facility in Texas were obtained by Operation Rescue. They showed 16 out of 17 abortion facilities failed their inspections and were cited for a wide range of violations.

In addition to the unsanitary conditions and practices found at SWSC, it also has a history of medical emergencies, including one that took place on February 29, 2016.

“Licensing regulations are only as good as their enforcement, and in Texas, the Department of Health Care Quality has not adequately enforced those laws for the protection of the public from abortion dumps like the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “That leads to women needing emergency medical care, as we just saw.”

But women seeking abortions at the Dallas facility have ready access to alternatives than can help them avoid the dangers that lurk at SWSC. Across the parking lot from the busy abortion business, Birth Choice, a pregnancy help center that is fully accredited by the Accreditation of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). It provides FREE help to pregnant ladies six days a week.

“We pray more women will take advantage of the help available at pregnancy help centers like Birth Choice,” said Newman. “It would spare not only the lives of their babies, but also possibly spare the women an unplanned trip to the emergency room or maybe even their own lives.”

Background on Boyd: “Am I killing? Yes, I am. I know that.”
