Stamford Planned Parenthood Summons Ambulance for 21st Known Medical Emergency in 5 Months

By Cheryl Sullenger

Stamford, CT — For the second time this year, an ambulance was dispatched to the Stamford Health Center Planned Parenthood, an abortion facility located in Stamford, Connecticut.

The incident occurred soon after a group of pro-life activists had left for the day. However, one activist remained in the neighborhood running errands when he happened to notice an ambulance headed in the direction of the Planned Parenthood center.

He returned to the street to pray for whoever needed assistance until the ambulance left, which was followed closely by a private vehicle that had been parked in the lot. No lights or sirens were used.

A radio dispatch recording obtained by Operation Rescue revealed that an ambulance and a rescue unit had been dispatched using the Delta priority designation, which is a non-life threatening priority code that does not require the use of lights and sirens.

The subject was a 29-year old female who had lost consciousness, but was breathing normally. It is assumed she was transported to a nearby hospital.

This follows a previous medical emergency that took place on February 15, 2017, in which an ambulance was called to the Planned Parenthood facility for a patient suffering a seizure. Photos and a radio traffic recording was included in a February Operation Rescue compilation video featuring 18 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood since January 2016, which was meant to persuade Washington legislators to defund Planned Parenthood.

Since then, Operation Rescue has documented a total of 48 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities since January 2016 – twenty-one of which took place within the first five months of 2017.

“Whether it is a minor condition or a life-threatening abortion complication, the public need to be aware that ambulances are being summoned to Planned Parenthood abortion facilities at an alarming rate,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Planned Parenthood’s inability to guarantee the safety of their patients and the fact that their facilities are ill-equipped to handle even a minor incident, provided an urgent reason to stop propping up Planned Parenthood with our tax money.

When Brigham Was Evicted From Delaware Facility, He Left $37,000 in Unpaid Rent and THIS…

Now he’s up to his old tricks – this time in Washington, D.C.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Wilmington, DE – Dr. Parham Farhi wishes he’s never trusted Steven Chase Brigham. When Brigham came calling, hoping to lease office space in a building Farhi owned, it seemed like a standard business deal.

What he didn’t know was that Brigham was a disgraced abortionist who intended to use the office space as an abortion facility.

So bad were conditions at Brigham’s Delaware office, that the state threatened to shut him down. In order to maintain a money stream, Brigham agreed to halt surgical abortions, but continued to conduct medication abortions using a cut-rate injectable drug known as Methotrexate, which has a sky-high failure rate.

When Dr. Farhi was finally forced Brigham out earlier this year, he was left with an unpaid bill for $37,000 in back rent.

But that’s not the only thing Brigham left him.

Farhi was befriended by two local pro-life activists, Moira Sheridan and David Williams. Once Brigham had moved out, Farhi allowed Sheridan and Williams to tour the facility. What they found was a trashed office with dirty walls, filthy floors, and bits of trash strewn about.

They also found what appeared to be an ancient ObGyn procedure chair that looked like it came straight from the set of some B-grade horror movie.

Williams snapped photos of the contraption and sent them to Operation Rescue.

“Abortion supporters should be appalled that such a filthy, rusty chair would be used for women. Where is Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards’s statement denouncing such abuse? Where is Ilyse Hogue of NARAL? Why aren’t they calling for Brigham’s Washington abortion business to be shut down?” asked Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Even Philadelphia’s ‘House of Horrors” abortion mill run by Kermit Gosnell had a better-looking abortion table!”

Now it looks like Brigham is up to his old tricks, this time in Washington, D.C. In a conversation with Reza Sabaii, Brigham’s new landlord, he was shocked to hear the news from an Operation Rescue staffer that his new tenant was running an abortion mill out of his building. One can only wonder what horrors might be found there.

Later today, pro-life leaders from a number of organizations will gather in front of Brigham’s new office and call for him to be shut down. This is just the first salvo in what is expected to be an intensive campaign to protect women from his dangerous, deceptive, and exploitative abortion practices.

Abortion Business Closures Outpace Openings by Four to One in 2017

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, D.C. – For the first five months of 2017, abortion clinic closures continue to outpace the opening of new abortion businesses.

This continues a national trend that shows the abortion industry is imploding. So far in 2017, there have been 21 closures of abortion and abortion referral facilities, while only five have been known to open.

Operation Rescue tracks each change in the number of abortion facilities in the U.S. and publishes annual reports on closures.

The 21 closures break down as follows:

• Seven surgical abortion facilities.
• Five medication abortion facilities.
• Nine abortion referral facilities.

“There are multiple factors that are leading to abortion clinic closures,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Of course, defunding efforts are one of the primary reasons for closures, but another important factor is failure of abortion businesses to comply with the law.”

Abortion facilities in Delaware, Kentucky, Maryland, and Virginia, closed due to their own bad behavior.

• Premiere ObGyn in Wilmington, Delaware, and American Women’s Services in Fairfax, Virginia, closed after being evicted for non-payment of rent. Both were owned by the notorious Steven Chase Brigham.
• EMW abortion facility in Lexington, Kentucky, was closed by the state for conducting abortions without a license.
• Planned Parenthood Metro DC in Silver Spring, Maryland, was evicted due to pressure from pro-life activists.

Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood organizations are undergoing a rapid reorganization. Four Iowa facilities affiliated with Planned Parenthood Heartland will soon close due to state defunding efforts. This includes three facilities that offered medical abortions. With these closures, Planned Parenthood will have shut down 20 facilities since 2010.

Other Planned Parenthood closures were announced by Planned Parenthood Rocky Mountains. They will close three referral clinics in New Mexico, two in Colorado, and the only Planned Parenthood facility in Wyoming. These closures are attributed to a dramatic reorganization in the face of the likely prospect that the Trump Administration will successfully bar them from profiting from all federal programs.

“Planned Parenthood has grossly overestimated the demand for abortion, which is their most profitable endeavor,” said Newman. “Abortion numbers are decreasing each year, and now with the treat of federal defunding, Planned Parenthood is rushing to reorganize in order to remain financially solvent. We expect to see more of this reorganization trend as the federal government works to redirect tax money to women’s clinics that do not conduct abortions.”

Closures outpace new opens

Three of the 21 Texas abortion facilities that closed after the passage of the 2013 abortion safety laws have reopened in Texas as the result of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Whole Women’s Health v. Hellerstedt, which struck down a number of abortion safety requirements that these facilities could not meet.

Those Texas abortion facilities that have reopened this year include:

• Northpark in Dallas, owned by the notorious Houston abortionist Douglas Karpen.
• Audre Rapoport Women’s Health Center Planned Parenthood in Waco.
• Whole Women’s Health of Austin.

Whole Women’s Health shut down their low-volume Las Cruces, New Mexico, facility in January in order to have the staffing to reopen their busier Austin, Texas, location.

Similarly, east coast abortion chain owner Steven Chase Brigham opened the Capital Women’s Services in Washington, D.C. earlier this month following the closure of his Wilmington, Delaware, facility that was evicted for non-payment of rent.
Finally, the Carafem abortion chain opened a new office in Augusta, Georgia, in February. While posing as a “trendy” abortion office, it offers third-world style manual aspiration abortions along with the abortion pill.

“So far this year, abortion business closures are outpacing new openings by more than four to one,” said Newman. “It is clear that if Planned Parenthood is defunded by the Trump Administration, more abortion facilities and abortion referral centers will continue to close and more lives will be saved.”
