Planned Parenthood Hides Abortionist’s Name after Bungled Abortion Causes Woman to Deliver Dead Baby in Home Bathroom

By Cheryl Sullenger

Worcester, MA – A lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court in Worcester, Massachusetts, on March 5, 2018, against Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts by a woman who experienced a bungled late-term abortion that resulted in the birth of her presumably dead baby in her bathroom.

While the lawsuit names Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, Inc. and the nurse practitioner, Rebecca Kreiger, there is no mention of the abortionist who started the two-day abortion. That’s because Planned Parenthood redacted his or her name from the woman’s medical records.

The lawsuit states:

On or about March 12, 2015, a doctor, whose name is redacted from the medical records and whose identity is unknown, performed the first step in a two-step abortion at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Worcester by softening the cervix. [Emphasis added.]

“Everyone who receives medical treatment of any kind deserves to know the name of their provider. It’s unbelievable that Planned Parenthood decided to keep this woman in the dark by withholding that information from this her own medical record – after they failed to inform her of the risks of the type of abortion she was having,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

The plaintiff, Celina Casas, has claimed she was never informed that there was a risk of vaginal delivery prior to her next appointment. The drug Misoprostol, also known as Cytotec, is usually used to soften the cervix prior to a multi-day abortion. However, Misoprostol does more than soften. It also induces unpredictable uterine contractions strong enough to expel a baby in the second trimester.

The following day, March 13, 2015, the complaint states that Casas began experiencing “sever labor type pains” and called Planned Parenthood for advice and instruction. She was only told to take the prescribed pain medication. She was never advised that the contractions could cause delivery, and she was never told to seek medical attention.

That night, Casas delivered her baby in her home’s bathroom. The lawsuit claims the incident caused her severe emotional and mental trauma. The suit also alleges that she suffered undefined “severe and permanent personal injuries.”

But what about the mystery abortionist, who appears to have been let off the hook by the lawsuit?

Operation Rescue has verified that Danielle M. Roncari currently serves as medical director of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts, Inc., but there’s no way to know if she was involved in Casas’ abortion.

The Worcester Planned Parenthood abortion facility has a long history of patient care problems, including emergency medical transports and two patient deaths. A complaint was also once filed alleging misuse of Cytotec, the drug that apparently caused the plaintiff’s ill-timed delivery. (Read documents pertaining to these and other incidents at

Operation Rescue will continue to monitor this case and will report back with updates.

Denver Planned Parenthood Abortion Facility Under DOJ Investigation Calls Ambulance for Injured Woman — Again

By Cheryl Sullenger

Denver, CO — The Stapleton Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Denver, Colorado, called for an ambulance on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, to transport yet another abortion patient to the hospital. This is the six time such a medical emergency at this Planned Parenthood facility has been documented by Operation Rescue.

However, when radio traffic archives were searched, there was no record of an ambulance dispatch.

“It has been the policy of many Planned Parenthood abortion facilities to sidestep 911, which is the quickest way to get emergency help, and phone ambulance companies directly in an effort to keep any records of the medical emergency out of public records,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

The ambulance arrived at the Denver Planned Parenthood around noon, loaded a female patient, and raced away from the abortion facility with lights flashing and sirens screaming.

Sidewalk counselors on the scene begged the injured mother to turn to Jesus Christ for forgiveness.

This is the same Colorado Planned Parenthood facility featured in an undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress. Abortionist Savita Ginde, who serves as Vice President and Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains, which operates the Denver abortion facility, was seen identifying baby organs from a dismembered aborted baby that were floating in a glass dish.

“I know I’ve seen livers, I’ve seen stomachs, I know I’ve seen plenty of neural tissue. Usually you can see the whole brain come out usually,” said Ginde, gesturing with her arms to illustrate the way the brains spill out of the head.

“I think the ‘per item’ thing works a little better just because we can see how much we can get out of it,” Ginde concluded, indicating that arrangement would bring more money.

Planned Parenthood of the Rock Mountains is currently under investigation by the Department of Justice for illegally profiting from trafficking in human baby remains. Savita Ginde continues to work there, but there’s no word on whether she was involved in the recent medical emergency.

“The crop of abortionists now working at abortion facilities across the nation are the worst of the worst. The abortion industry is where disgraced doctors go when they can’t get a job anywhere else,” said Newman, who also served as a founding board member for the Center for Medical Progress. “With the help of pro-life activists, we are attempting to gather as much documentation on medical emergencies at abortion facilities as possible to prove that abortion is not only fatal for the baby, but is more dangerous for the mother that Planned Parenthood wants you to believe.”

Outrageous! St. Louis Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Hospitalizes 2nd Woman in 11 Days — 69 Overall

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – Just eleven days after a Planned Parenthood patient was transported from their St. Louis abortion facility, an ambulance transported yet another Planned Parenthood patient to a hospital emergency room.

Kathy Forck, Campaign Director for 40 Days for Life in Columbia, Missouri, told Operation Rescue that she spoke with one witness who told her that “the ambulance lights were on coming down Forest Park, turned off when entering [Planned Parenthood]. When the ambulance left, the lights were initially on and the ambulance proceeded down Forest Park with the lights off.”

This raises questions about whether Planned Parenthood is complying with a recently enacted law that makes it a crime for abortion facility employees to ask that ambulances run without lights and sirens since that delays emergency care for patients. During the incident on February 24, 2018, lights and sirens were also not in use.

“There needs to be an investigation into whether Planned Parenthood is in compliance with the law,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “If they are delaying emergency medical care to patients, they should be held accountable in court like anyone else who commits crimes.”

This represents the sixty-ninth medical emergency documented by Operation Rescue at this facility in the past eight and a half years.

According to Forck, “an additional 80 visits to emergency rooms from this same clinic during the same time frame” has been uncovered by Missouri pro-life activists.

Combined with the medical emergencies that took place at the Planned Parenthood in St Louis, this means a total of 149 women have required emergency care after abortions there, for an average of one injured woman every 20 days over the past eight and a half years.

This all comes as the City of St. Louis Board of Aldermen is attempting to pass Board Bill 34, which would create an eight-foot buffer zone that would prevent those offering practical assistance to women entering Planned Parenthood. An earlier vote on the bill was postponed and a new vote date has not been confirmed.

The proposed buffer zone is considered by pro-life groups to be unconstitutional because it would create a solid line that pro-life advocates could not cross. This would prevent sidewalk counselors from handing literature to those entering Planned Parenthood who actually want the information.

Brian Westbrook, Executive Director of Coalition for Life St. Louis reports that calls for police service at Planned Parenthood, which have been exaggerated and used to argue in favor of the bill, have actually decreased 89% over the past three years, and that only 15 calls for police assistance were made in 2018. One of those calls was for an assault on a peaceful pro-life activist, according to Westbrook.

“Due to the dangers posed by Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, the proposed buffer zone would prevent pro-life activists from offering warnings and practical help to women so they won’t become the next unwilling visitor to the emergency room,” said Newman. “Instead of protecting Planned Parenthood, the Aldermen should be thinking of ways to protect women and their babies from this very dangerous Planned Parenthood abortion business.”

68th Ambulance Arrives at St. Louis Planned Parenthood while City Council Considers a Buffer Zone Restricting Pro-Life Speech

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – Saturdays are usually very busy days at abortion facilities, such as the Reproductive Health Services Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis, Missouri, and Saturday February 24, 2018, was no different.

But that day, as a group of young pro-life activists from a Students for Life group prayed on the sidewalk outside the abortion facility, an ambulance arrived and transported a Planned Parenthood patient to the hospital.

What was so significant about this ambulance sighting was that it represents the sixty-eighth time an ambulance has transported a patient from this abortion facility since mid-2009. This makes the RHS Planned Parenthood among the worst in the nation for abortion patient safety.

According to the activists on the scene, the ambulance arrived and left without the use of lights and sirens – an observation that may be significant. Last year the Missouri legislature passed a new law that makes it a crime for an abortion facility employee to request that an ambulance run without lights and sirens because silent running actually delays the arrival of emergency help.

Whether that was the case during the Saturday incident remains unknown since 911 audio recordings, which are public in most places, are blocked from release to the public by the St. Louis Fire Department.

This incident comes as the City of St. Louis is attempting to pass an ordinance that would create a buffer zone around the facility. This would make meaningful communication with abortion-bound women nearly impossible for pro-life activists.

Last year, the City of St. Louis declared itself a “sanctuary city for abortion,” an action meant to destroy pro-life pregnancy centers by forcing them to hire pro-abortion activists and refer women for abortions under threat of prosecution or other legal action.

While the Constitutionality of that “sanctuary” ordinance is being challenged in court, the City Council is taking their pro-abortion bias a step further with the proposed buffer zone law in an attempt to silence those who offer help to women outside of Planned Parenthood.

The most recent medical emergency only highlights the need for pro-life activists outside the Planned Parenthood to offer practical assistance to abortion-bound women. It is the last opportunity to reach out to these women and help them avoid the needless deaths of their pre-born babies, and perhaps escape serious injury for themselves.

Historically, most abortion facility buffer zone laws do not hold up in court because they violate the First Amendment rights speakers and their audiences, but challenges can take years and be very costly. It is better for these unjust laws never to be enacted.

“The City of St Louis has made it clear that pro-life speech is not welcome in that city. Now they want to make sure effective, life-saving pro-life speech isn’t allowed there by making it a criminal act,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Silencing speech is not the American way. It is the way of totalitarians who want to lock down any ideas that they don’t like. In this case, silencing pro-life speech means the death of more babies. It must be opposed and exposed.”

A vote is expected on the St. Louis buffer zone ordinance on Friday, March 2, 2018.

Ambulance Responds to Medical Emergency at Planned Parenthood Facility Known for Rudeness

By Cheryl Sullenger

Tempe, AZ – An ambulance was called to the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Tempe, Arizona, on the morning of February 1, 2018, to transport a woman who was suffering a medical emergency.

Pro-life activist Jim Fitzsimmons, who is the 40 Days for Life Campaign Director in Tempe, Arizona, told Operation Rescue that the recording of this incident, which was done from the property next door, prompted Planned Parenthood to call the police.

The New Tempe Regional Health Center Planned Parenthood abortion facility uses a vocal group of “escorts” who have been known to disrupt pro-life activities, including the recording of incidents involving medical emergencies.

While the condition of the woman remains unknown, video taken at the scene shows her awake with her legs bent on the flat gurney. She appeared to be in some discomfort. An IV bag could be seen near her side.

“The fact that America continues to fund Planned Parenthood with our Federal tax dollars is appalling, given the number of women injured and innocent babies killed by them,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Today everyone is concerned about gun violence against children, but Planned Parenthood slaughters more babies in one day than all the school shootings combined. If we truly want to keep women and children safe, Planned Parenthood abortion facilities should be immediately defunded and closed.”

Google reviews for the Tempe Planned Parenthood reveal a callous treatment of women, who have given it only 2.7 stars out of a possible 5. Complaints focused on rudeness of the staff toward the patients.

“Let me just say the female doctor here is very rude will [sic] never go back,” stated one reviewer who gave the Planned Parenthood one star.

Three female abortionists who have been known to work at this facility include Belinda K. Beck, Laura Dalton, and Maria Platia.

“Planned Parenthood acts like they care more about women than anyone, but the women who actually have gone there say the truth is something far different. Planned Parenthood will apparently do or say anything to lure in pregnant women so they can be exploited for profit,” said Newman.

This is the 68th medical emergency documented by Operation Rescue at an abortion facility since January 2017. It represents the seventh known incident so far in 2018.

Of those 68 medical emergencies over the past 13 months, 38 of them involved Planned Parenthood facilities.
