Kansas Suspends Abortionist’s License for 90 Days for Violations During Abortion on 13-Year Old

Abortionist Allen S. Palmer

Topeka, KS – The Kansas Board of Healing Arts has suspended the osteopathic medicine license of Allen S. Palmer, 78, for 90 days. The suspension is due to be completed on December 7, 2017.

Palmer was working part time for Comprehensive Health of Planned Parenthood in Overland Park, Kansas, on December 22, 2014, when a 13-year old girl presented for a surgical abortion. Palmer failed to check her medical records for age prior to the surgery, then failed to preserve fetal tissue from the abortion, which, by law, is supposed to be submitted to the Kansas Bureau of Investigation in the event a criminal investigation is warranted.

Planned Parenthood reported Palmer’s violation. In return, Palmer blamed a “system failure” at Planned Parenthood for the violation since staff did not advise him of the patient’s age.

The Board of Healing Arts found that Palmer had an independent duty to abide by the law and ensure his own compliance, and found it was wrong for him to conduct a surgical abortion without having looked at the young patient’s medical record or history.

The Board of Healing Arts found that Palmer had committed the following violations:

• Unprofessional conduct;
• Conduct likely to harm the public and hinder a criminal investigation;
• Failure to properly supervise, direct or delegate actions required of a licensee.

“Palmer works at a number of abortion facilities in Kansas, so his suspension is likely to have a large effect on abortion businesses in this state, and will likely save lives,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.

Palmer conducts abortions at Planned Parenthood in Overland Park, South Wind Women’s Center in Wichita, and at Whole Women’s Health in Peoria, Illinois. He has also been known to work for Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Missouri, since his own St. Louis area abortion facility closed in February, 2011.

Only the Kansas locations will be affected by the suspension order.

This is not Palmer’s first disciplinary encounter.

In 1979, Palmer was incarcerated and fined after he pleaded guilty to filing a false corporate tax statement in a U.S. District Court in Missouri.

In 1981, Palmer’s home state of Missouri placed him on probation and ordered him to perform charity service at a St. Louis area hospital in lieu of surrendering his license.

Palmer was subsequently fined and his licenses placed on probation by Florida and Illinois.

“It is unusual to see Planned Parenthood throw one of their abortionists under the bus, but in this case, it was probably to save themselves from being charged,” said Newman. “We are just glad that for now there is one less abortionist in Kansas. That is great news for women and their babies.”

Attack on Pro-Life Activist at an Abortion Facility Results in Capture of Child Rapist

By Cheryl Sullenger

Montgomery, AL — April 14, 2017, seemed at first like just another routine day at the abortion clinic for a number of pro-life activists who spent the morning offering help to women and their companions as they reported to Reproductive Health Services, an abortion facility located on Perry Street in Montgomery, Alabama.

As one of the activists, Daniel French, approached one couple, the man became angry and threw his coffee on French and spit in his face.

The police were called to the scene where they arrested Logan Craft inside the abortion facility then marched him out to an awaiting police car. He was charged with Aggravated Assault and Harassment.

However, at least one the pro-life witnesses that day expressed further concern. Craft, a 24-year old Montgomery resident, had accompanied a girl that appeared to be underage.

Just three days later on April 17, Craft was arrested again and charged on numerous charges related to sexual abuse of two minor girls less than 12 years old, according to a local news report.

One of Craft’s young victims had suffered abuse from April 10 through April 14 – the very day Craft took an apparently underaged young lady to the Reproductive Health Services abortion facility. Whether the abuse victim was the same person Craft was seen with at the abortion business remains unconfirmed at this time.

The Montgomery Advertiser elaborated on Craft’s sexual abuse charges in a story posted on April 18, 2017:

Craft is accused of sexually assaulting one child between April 10 and April 14. Another child was sexually assaulted between April 3 and April 7 in the area of Mobile Highway.

In addition, two separate cases were reported where women were sexually assaulted in January. Both cases occurred during consensual sex, however when the women pleaded to stop, Craft allegedly used physical force to continue the abuse.

He is accused of strangling one victim until she was unconscious and continued to sexually abuse her because he admitted it “heightened his sexual pleasure” according to court documents.

Craft is being held on a bond on $150,000 at the Montgomery Detention facility. He remains in custody as of this writing, and will hopefully continue his incarceration for many years to come.

It is possible that if Craft had not attacked French on April 14, he might still be on the loose.

“Many abortion facilities have been caught failing to report child sex abuse. It is a huge problem across America. Abortion facilities often have an unspoken ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy when it comes to underage abortion patients. This actually protects the rapists at the expense of the young victims,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Would Reproductive Health Services have reported Craft if police had not been called for another matter? It’s hard to say, but I think it is doubtful.”

Newman has good reason for his doubts.

Operation Rescue’s office is located in a former abortion clinic in Wichita, Kansas, where twelve-year old girl was once brought for an abortion by her rapist and step-father, Robert Estrada. Because the abortion business did not report the abuse, Estrada continued to rape the girl and her younger sister for four more years, resulting in additional pregnancies. He was finally caught and convicted only after one of the victims sought help at a pro-life pregnancy care center, who reported Estrada to the police.

The Estrada case is only one of many examples of abortion facilities acting as “rapist protection rackets” – a fate that may have befallen Craft’s young victims had he not attacked Daniel French.

“We are usually not thankful when a pro-life activist is attacked outside an abortion facility, but this time, we are grateful,” said Newman. “Because police were called to the abortion clinic, a rapist is behind bars and little girls in Montgomery are now a bit safer.”

Planned Parenthood Caught Failing to Report Egregious Case of Child Sex Abuse in Alabama

Mobile PP

By Cheryl Sullenger

Mobile, AL – A inspection report released on August 13, 2015, has revealed that a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Mobile, Alabama, twice failed to report suspected child sex abuse as required by law involving a 14-year old girl who received two abortions within a four-month span of time.

But what is disturbing is that the report was dated November 21, 2014, nine months ago, raising questions about why it took so long for the Alabama Department of Public Health to release this public record. The report contained no plan of correction usually found on reports this old. In fact, it is not known what sanctions — if any – were ever levied on the Planned Parenthood office, which is open for business and conducting abortions today.

The teenager, identified only as MR#16, first reported to the Planned Parenthood facility on April 9, 2014, seeking a medication abortion. It was determined that she was 14 and already had two living children.

There was no documentation in her medical record to indicate that anyone from Planned Parenthood could verify the signature of the adult that brought her for the abortion was indeed a parent or legal guardian.

Despite being seriously anemic with a hemoglobin count of 9.3 – too low for a medication abortion that induces heavy bleeding — she returned to the clinic on April 12 and was given drugs to induce an abortion. She received no management or consultation regarding her anemia.

Planned Parenthood’s Director of Patient Services verified to inspectors with the Alabama Department of Public Health that no report of suspected child sexual abuse was ever made.

If that was not bad enough, MR#16 returned to Planned Parenthood four months later on August 18, 2014, for counseling for yet another medication abortion.

As before, no one bothered to authenticate that the adult who brought her to Planned Parenthood was her parent or guardian. Still seriously anemic, which should have contraindicated medication abortion to the Planned Parenthood staff, she was again given drugs to induce an abortion then sent on her way.

Again, the inspectors verified with the Director of Patient Services that no report of suspected child sexual abuse made. The Director had no further information as to why this young woman was obviously sent back to her rapist for further abuse.

In fact, to this day, there remains uncertainty that anyone has even yet come to this young teen’s aid.

If a plan of correction was submitted, why wasn’t it released with the deficiency report as usual? Was the abuse ever reported? Is the young woman safe, or is she still in the clutches of her abuser? Was he ever arrested and charged?

“The fact that we currently have no answers to this questions is disturbing, at best. We hope that the ADPH reported this crime and that a full police investigation took place, but we simply do not know,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “In the meantime, allowing Planned Parenthood to continue operating in Mobile is completely unacceptable because we know this behavior is chronic.”

Meanwhile, other deficiencies found in that same report indicate a facility with serious infection control issues. Surgical equipment was not properly sterilized between patients. Everyone from the abortionist down failed to wash their hands before or after donning sterilized gloves. The two times the abortionist was observed washing hands, it was for a grand total of six and seven seconds respectively.

In addition, medical records failed to report important facts, including the type of anesthesia used during abortions. That lack of information could have proved disastrous has any of them suffered complications.

Operation Rescue has confirmed that the Planned Parenthood in Mobile is currently only doing medication abortions even though it has long supplied surgical abortions at that location. Whether this change in services has anything to do with the non-reporting incident remains to be determined.

Planned Parenthood has been accused of failing to report child sex abused for years. Investigations into their despicable practice covering up for child rapists have been politically thwarted or simply never done.

In fact, Planned Parenthood’s Birmingham abortion clinic was caught in 2009 by the Alabama Department of Public Health also failing to report child sex abuse and conducting abortions on minor girls without the required parental consent. Promised investigations ended up going no where.

Both the Birmingham and Mobile abortion facilities belong to Planned Parenthood of the Southeast, Inc., which employs Tamar Middleton and Yashica Robinson-White as their abortionists.

“If an investigation into aiding and abetting child sex abuse is to be done, Planned Parenthood’s abortionists Middleton and Robinson-White are where it should start,” said Newman. “Planned Parenthood appears to be breaking the law nine ways to Sunday, exploiting abused little girls and selling aborted baby remains. It’s time for those in authority to stop ignoring the evidence of criminal activity and bring those responsible to speedy justice.”

Tectonic Political Shift in New Mexico Prompts Life-Saving Pro-Life Legislation

By Cheryl Sullenger

Santa Fe, NM — A tectonic shift in the political climate in New Mexico following the 2014 Mid-term Elections has resulted in the filing of three important pro-life bills in a state that has previously refused to pass even the most rudimentary of abortion laws.

The House Chamber of the State Legislature is now remarkably in the hands of Republicans for the first time since 1954, when Republicans controlled by only a one-seat advantage. With Republican Gov. Susanna Martinez now publicly vowing to support pro-life legislation and the liberally-bent Albuquerque Journal calling for a vote on a late-term abortion ban, there is hope that the first-ever piece of pro-life legislation may actually make its way into law.

The three bills introduced so far deal with such issues as parental notification, local hospital privilege requirements for doctors, and a ban on abortions after viability.

On Friday, the House Regulatory and Public Affairs Committee will hear testimony on HB 390, the Late-Term Abortion Ban and HB 391, the Parental Notification of Abortion Act.

Another bill, introduced in the Senate, is SB 437, which requires physicians that do abortions to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of the facility where the abortions are done.

Here’s a closer look at these proposed new laws.

Late-Term Abortion Ban

In November, 2013, pro-life forces used a citizen petition process to put the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Ordinance on the ballot within the City of Albuquerque, where the largest late-term abortion facility in the country operates without restriction or oversight. While the ordinance enjoyed a 10 point approval lead in the polls, grass-roots pro-life groups were out spent and out organized by Obama’s political activism group, Organizing for Action, which is actually Obama’s renamed campaign machine that continues to advance a radical leftist agenda. Their experience helped turn out “against” votes in early voting, and as a result, the ordinance was defeated.

However, due to the public education that took place during the Albuquerque referendum, which drew nation attention, opposition to the grisly practice late-term abortions has continued to resonate in the Land of Enchantment. It now appears ready to tackle the thorny question of late-term abortions on a higher level.

HB 390, which would restrict abortions at twenty weeks of pregnancy and later, is based on fetal viability instead of the stronger fetal pain test. The legislations establishes the legal presumption of viability at 20 weeks and required that all abortions in New Mexico be done only by a physician.

Even though it contains an overly-broad “health” exception and a “sexual abuse, rape, or incest” exception and contains the weaker viability test instead of the stronger fetal pain capability standard, we encourage the passage of this bill. If it becomes law, this legislation will save some babies, and some are better than none, especially in a state that currently has no restrictions on abortion whatsoever.

According to a Huffington Post poll, 59% of Americans favor a Federal ban on abortions after 20 weeks, and looking at the procedure, it is easy to see why.

The late-term abortion process employed at Albuquerque’s Southwestern Women’s Options is known as the Induction Abortion Method. The three-four day procedure was developed in Wichita, Kansas, by the infamous late-term abortionist George Tiller.

It involves injecting the growing baby through the mother’s abdominal wall with a drug, Digoxin, which causes the baby to suffer a heart attack and die. The woman’s cervix is then packed with dilators called laminaria, that slowly expand the opening of the womb and she is sent to a hotel to wait out the abortion process. On the second day, the luminaria is removed and replaced, and the woman is given Cytotec, an ulcer drug that also stimulates uterine contractions. On the final day, with the woman in full-blown labor, the dead baby is either birthed – often into a toilet – or dismembered and removed. Often the contents of the head are suctioned out and the skull collapsed to make deliver of the dead baby faster. Some women have expressed they suffered emotional trauma and deep regret after these kinds of abortions, including a woman named Kelly, who described her horrific late-term abortion experience on the O’Reilly Factor news program.

These late-term abortions are fraught with risks. For example, in 2011, pro-life activist Tara Shaver obtained a 911 recording that revealed that a woman with a history of a previous Cesarean Section suffered a life-threatening ruptured uterus during a 35-week abortion. Shaver, along with Operation Rescue, filed complaints that were adopted by the New Mexico Medical Board against Tiller-trained abortionist Shelley Sella, resulting in four charges of gross negligence. Inexplicably, the Board lost the disciplinary case against Sella, and she was never disciplined.

Since then, Shaver has documented at least 17 medical emergencies at Southwestern Women’s Options since she began seeking such records four years ago.

“Late-term abortions are dangerous to women and horrifically brutal for the baby, who is old enough to feel pain and live outside the womb in most cases,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The majority of Americans agree that abortions at twenty weeks and older are inhumane for a compassionate society. We fully support banning these barbaric abortion procedures in New Mexico and in every other state.”

Parental Notification

Another bill that will be heard in committee on Friday HB 3091, which would require parental notification before minors could receive abortions.

But this bill is about much more than parental consent. It also requires abortionists to immediately notify authorities when they suspect a minor patient is pregnant as the result of sexual abuse, rape, or incest. It also establishes mandatory reporting to the State of all abortions for statistical analysis, which will help lawmakers and the public understand who is having abortions and why. This is important information for pro-life groups seeking to provide assistance to abortion-vulnerable women.

While this bill also has exceptions for minors who are the victims of sexual abuse, this bill would also save some babies and provide much-needed information for groups that can use it to save more babies in the future.

Hospital Privileges

Operation Rescue heavily supports legislation like New Mexico’s SB 437 that requires abortionists to maintain hospital privileges within 30 miles of the facilities where abortions are done. It only makes good common sense.

In New Mexico, the late-term abortionists employed by Southwestern Women’s Options actually live in California. They work on a rotation, each flying in to Albuquerque to do abortions for a week, then flying home. Problems arise when women experience abortion complications after these fly-in abortionists leave the state. Women have been forced to make their own way to whatever emergency room they could find to get the help that the clinics are unequipped to handle. Often, the clinic medical records and the abortionist are not available, which had caused delays in emergency treatment for women injured during abortions

“Hospital privileges add a layer of protection for women. Abortionist who cannot qualify for hospital privileges should not be performing surgical abortions in the first place,” said Newman. “This law will weed out those who are unqualified and have the potential to close abortion clinics that employ substandard providers.”

Even though the penalties for violating this law are nominal, this bill deserves support. This law has the potential to spare women from suffering inflicted by incompetent and fly-in abortionists. In addition, it has the potential to close clinics that employ abortionists that are unqualified for hospital privileges and when abortion clinics close, abortion numbers drop, and lives are saved.

“It is gratifying to see the changes in New Mexico, which was once completely hostile to any kind of abortion standards and oversight. We know these changes could never have happened without the work of pro-life activists such as Tara Shaver and her husband, Bud, who have documented so many abortion abuses and have worked tirelessly to get the truth about New Mexico’s dangerous and unaccountable abortion cartel out to the public,” said Newman. “We will be watching these bills carefully and look forward to their eventual passage into law.”

SHOCKING ABUSE! Planned Parenthood Faces Lawsuit in Child Rape and Abortion Scandal

By Deborah Myers

PP-DenverDenver, Colorado — Planned Parenthood faces a legal challenge in Colorado after Cary Smith, of Federal Heights, discovered that clinic staff failed to inquire or report about suspected sexual abuse of her thirteen-year-old daughter after giving her an abortion.

It was any mother’s nightmare.

According to the lawsuit filed on June 20, 2014, Cary’s daughter, R.Z., was only about six when it all began. Her new step-father, Timothy David Smith, began to do things that no one had ever done before. At this age, she was too young to realize that her step-father’s inordinate attention was actually a crime—a felony: sexual abuse of a minor.

Little R.Z. turned seven, then eight. The years went by, and the abuse continued. But Cary Smith never knew.

During R.Z.’s growing up years, the abuse became both verbal and physical as well. Her step-father even threatened to take her life. Timothy’s verbal and physical abuse extended to Cary, even when R.Z. was present.

Then it happened.

R.Z. got pregnant. Timothy told her to take a test and the results were positive.

On May 3, 2012, Timothy transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an abortion appointment that Timothy had forced R.Z. to schedule.

Planned Parenthood staff met R.Z. and her step-father and gave them the necessary paperwork. R.Z. filled out her date of birth and signed a few forms, but Timothy completed all the rest. R.Z. never read these documents.

Throughout the visit, four staff members spoke with and observed R.Z. and her step-father. All of them had opportunity to see that R.Z.’s birth date indicated she was only thirteen—well below the age of consent. Yet, none of them asked R.Z. about their relationship. None of them asked why their last names were different. None of them asked about potential sex abuse. And none of them reported anything to the state.

After the abortion, R.Z. walked back out to the parking lot, got into her step-father’s car, and went back home. And the abuse continued.

Two months later, on July 18, 2012, Timothy was outside of the home, and Cary was left alone with her daughter. Young R.Z. took the opportunity to tell her mom the news—her own step-father was sexually abusing her, and had been doing so for years.

Cary spun into action. She took the thirteen-year-old to the hospital and immediately reported the abuse. She contacted Planned Parenthood for her daughter’s medical records, and discovered that her husband had arranged for a secret abortion for R.Z. earlier that year.

Timothy Smith was arrested and charged with multiple counts of felony sex abuse, and pled guilty to two counts in late 2012.

But Cary was not content. Although R.Z.’s abuser was now behind bars, the system hadn’t worked.

The first medical professionals who had seen R.Z.—the four Planned Parenthood staff members—must have known that her daughter was a potential victim of sexual abuse. These were professionals who had the information to do something. They had opportunity to ask R.Z. before her mother even knew.

And they had the responsibility to act—to report suspected child sex abuse—under Colorado law.

But these professionals did nothing. Worse, they performed a dangerous, legally-restricted procedure on a minor child, without informing her mother, and turned R.Z. back over to her rapist following the abortion.

The inaction of Planned Parenthood staff, as well as their direct violation of Colorado statutes, enabled a sexual predator to continue his felonious abuse of a child for months afterwards.

Cary maintains that defendants’ negligence “created an unreasonable risk of physical harm” to her daughter. Cary is now suing Planned Parenthood of the Rocky Mountains for five claims for relief, including negligence, negligent affliction of emotional distress, and extreme and outrageous conduct.

“We applaud Cary Smith for her brave stand to hold Planned Parenthood accountable for their crime against her daughter,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “This lawsuit is another indication that Planned Parenthood is dedicated to one thing—selling abortion; and they do not care how many young girls are raped or abused in the process.”
