Second Abortionist Involved in Serious Nebraska Abortion Emergency Identified

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bellevue, Nebraska – It was clear she didn’t want to be photographed. When the most recent abortionist came to work at LeRoy Carhart’s Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska in Bellevue, Nebraska, she was picked up by another employee and rushed past pro-life activists with a book over her face.

But when an ambulance came for one of their patients on May 4, 2018, she came out on the sidewalk and watched the seriously injured woman was loaded into an ambulance for transport to a nearby hospital.

Now, with the help of local pro-life activists, Operation Rescue has confirmed that Carhart’s mystery abortionist is Major Shana Melody Miles, an Ob/Gyn who also practices at an office located on Offutt Air Force Base near Omaha, Nebraska.

Perhaps not coincidentally, Miles is a 2012 graduate from the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland, where Carhart also operates AbortionClinics.org, a late-term abortion facility that conducts abortions throughout all nine months of pregnancy.

While it is unknown what part Miles played in the May 4th medical emergency in Bellevue, unconfirmed information received by Operation Rescue indicates it was a very serious abortion-related emergency that left the patient in grave danger. Operation Rescue is attempting to confirm that information.

Miles has not been seen at Carhart’s Bellevue abortion facility since.

“We hope Miles has had a change of heart about participating in the business of abortion. But if she hasn’t, we will continue to pray for her to stop participating in abortions and instead use her medical skills to heal instead of kill,” said Troy Newman.

Using AbortionDocs.org to Make America Abortion Free

By Cheryl Sullenger

Wichita, KS – Have you ever wondered what it might take to close an abortion facility in your state or community? There is an online resource that can help you do just that.

AbortionDocs.org is an informational site run by Operation Rescue that lists every abortion facility in the U.S. It includes documents that answer questions such as whether an abortion facility in your area passed its last health inspection, has malpractice judgements, or has hired an abortionist with a checkered history — and much more.

This site is an impressive resource for pro-life advocates that can assist life-saving efforts. It is also a useful, time-saving tool for those who are working to make their communities abortion free or simply want to inform women and their communities about the dangers of abortion.

AbortionDocs.org maintains the most accurate listing of abortion facilities in the US. Each year, Operation Rescue conducts a survey of every abortion facility in the nation, talking personally to a live person at each facility. It also contains the most accurate listing of known abortionists and the facilities with which they have been affiliated.

“No one else in the nation – including the CDC and the Guttmacher Institute – conducts a survey like this. They admit they have many abortion businesses that do not report to them. We gather data from every abortion facility directly. That data is important in learning abortion trends, which can help us understand the Abortion Cartel’s vulnerabilities,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Information from AbortionDocs.org, coupled with a goal-oriented strategy, explained in Abortion Free: Your Manual for Building a Pro-Life America One Community at a Time, by Troy Newman and Cheryl Sullenger, has been used successfully to send abortionists to jail, revoke medical licenses, and close many abortion facilities nationwide.

Newman and Sullenger are the most experienced team in the nation at securing enforcement actions that have closed abortion facilities from coast to coast.

AbortionDocs.org was designed by them to assist in the “research and documentation” phase of the “Abortion Free” plan to close abortion facilities, and can provide valuable documentation of abortion abuses for complaints, exposing the abuses to the public, and demanding enforcement of the laws.

A running total of abortion facilities in the U.S. appear at the upper right corner of the AbortionDocs.org home page. The Mission page explains the informational purpose of the site and displays a helpful chart that shows the percentage of abortion facilities that have closed since 1991.

But perhaps the most useful feature of AbortionDocs.org is an ever-growing number of documents related to individual abortionists and their businesses. The documents – over 13,500 so far — are a great source for those wanting to learn more about a particular abortion business or provider, and are not willing to settle for hear-say.

These raw documents consist of license applications, court records, medical board documents, health department inspection citations, criminal histories, and other important records that can help you better understand the Abortion Cartel and their historical behavior.

The site also links to thousands of articles that have appeared in print, in addition to photos, and video related abortion providers, which give true insight into the dangers associated with a particular abortion business or abortionist.

“I like to call AbortionDocs.org the best online file cabinet for documents proving abortion abuses. It is the largest online depository of documents on America’s Abortion Cartel,” said Newman. “These documents do no good sitting in our office, so we are sharing them online in order to help pro-life supporters be as informed as they can be about the true nature of abortion in this country. Information is power.”

AbortionDocs.org is easy to use with a number of ways to search. Simply go to the home page and click a state of interest for a listing of all abortion facilities and known abortionists.

There is also a search field where a facility name, abortionist’s name, street name, or city can be entered for more specific searches.

Buttons on the home screen help sort searches by category.

One other helpful feature of AbortionDocs.org is the “Closed” tab, which features a searchable listing of now defunct abortion facilities and former abortionists who have quit or been forced out of the abortion business. Just click the area of interest in the “Closed” drop down menu then enter a name in the search field.

There is also a tab that contains a listing of “Worst Offenders,” which includes the likes of convicted murderer and illegal late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell and convicted illegal late-term abortionist James S. Pendergraft, among others. “Worst Offenders” can be searched by clicking the tab on the home page and entering a term in the search field on page one of the Worst Offender’s list.

“We invest many man-hours each week ensuring AbortionDocs.org is continually being updated with the latest information available, so pro-life supporters as well as the curious can be as informed as possible about what is really going on at the abortion facilities in this country,” Newman explained.

AbortionDoc.org is a work in progress. Despite the large body of information currently available on the web site, Operation Rescue also invests a great deal of time and expense seeking additional documents and updating the site. It is a huge never-ending task.

“Our team of researchers are among the best in the nation at uncovering incriminating documents on the Abortion Cartel and using them to bring scofflaw abortionists to justice. But even so, we are always seeking help to keep the site as current and accurate as possible. We urge anyone with information or documentation concerning abuses at abortion facilities to contact us, and become part of this project to educate the American people about the true — and very unseemly — nature of abortion.” said Newman.

Seven Planned Parenthood Facilities Permanently Close Today

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, DC – Seven Planned Parenthood facilities, six of which conducted medication abortions, are set to permanently close today in three states.

Planned Parenthood officials noted that the closures were primarily an attempt to remain solvent amid fears that Medicaid reimbursements would be halted by Congress.

“It isn’t very often we see seven Planned Parenthood facilities close in one day. This may have set some kind of record. It is great news for women and their babies who will no longer be preyed upon for profit by Planned Parenthood in these communities,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Many Planned Parenthood facilities survive only on on government funding. There are so many other reputable providers of legitimate healthcare for women out there. Even if every Planned Parenthood was shut down, no one would have to due without proper medical care. We should not be funding Planned Parenthood with our tax dollars.”

Medication abortion facilities that are closing as of June 30, 2017, include:

Atlantic City Planned Parenthood, Atlantic City, New Jersey. (Cited “security” reasons for closure.)
Burlington Health Center, Burlington, Iowa. (Financial reasons.)
Sioux City Center Planned Parenthood, Sioux City, Iowa. (Financial reasons.)
Central Richmond Health Center, Richmond, CA. (Financial reasons.)
Vacaville Health Center Planned Parenthood, Vacaville, CA. (Financial reasons.)
Pittsburg Health Center, Pittsburg, CA. (Financial reasons.)

Keokuk Health Center Planned Parenthood, in Keokuk, Iowa, a center that referred for abortions, will also permanently close on June 30.

Another Iowa medication abortion facility, Quad Cities Center Planned Parenthood in Bettendorf, is set to close once the building sells.

The closures continue a national trend of abortion facility closures that appears to have intensified since the election of President Donald Trump.

In order to prevent Planned Parenthood from expanding once again, please contact your Senators today and urge them to completely defund Planned Parenthood in the upcoming legislation to repeal and replace of Obamacare, which is expected to come up for a vote after the Independence Day break.

Abortionist Admits Planned Parenthood Requested “No Lights, No Sirens” to Hide Botched Abortions

Heller also admits as an abortionist he suffered from depression and alcoholism

By Cheryl Sullenger

Cooperstown, NY – As Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson relocates into their new $2 million office in Queensbury, New York, today, an interview of their former Medical Director sheds light on Planned Parenthood practices that place the lives of women at risk.

Marc Elliot Heller worked until very recently as Medical Director for Planned Parenthood Mohawk Hudson, Inc. at abortion facilities in Utica and Schenectady, New York. On November 19, 2016, a student from the Cooperstown Graduate Program, State University of New York-College at Oneonta interviewed Heller about his work conducting abortions.

During that interview, Heller discussed abortion complications that required emergency hospitalization. While he (unconvincingly) downplayed the number of times his staff would have to call an ambulance for an abortion patient, he admitted that he ordered his staff to request that ambulances run silently and go to the back door in order to avoid bad publicity.

Heller said during the interview:

Even if people didn’t like abortion, they would take care of my patient’s medical problems. There [at Planned Parenthood], it was always like you never knew. The transfers were very rare, but we always said to the ambulance, “Please come to the back entrance. Please don’t use any sirens or lights,” because we knew that the protestors that were there every day would call the press. And there would be a press thing about “another botched abortion.” So we went quietly out and then I drove along and sat there until either they were admitted to the hospital, which only happened a couple times, or they were discharged. I tried to be quiet and nice to people. Sometimes they were nice and sometimes they weren’t, but I was an outsider and I think being an outsider was characteristic of all doctors who performed abortions across this entire country. You lose your colleagues.

“It is obvious that this dangerous practice is still going on today at Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities, even though it means that response times will be slower,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It really confirms that Planned Parenthood’s public relations are more important to them than the lives of women.”

Heller discussed an incident where one of his patients nearly died.

“There was a patient who had a complication—a serious one—and was saying to me ‘Dr. Heller, please don’t let me die. Am I gonna die?’ and we had to send her to the Intensive Care Unit.”

Heller also revealed that when he was trying to establish his own abortion clinic within a hospital setting prior to his employment with Planned Parenthood, he rewrote the bylaws in order to avoid having to submit aborted baby remains to a pathologist for examination, which could confirm whether or not an abortion was complete. Heller explained in the interview that he did it to save money.

There was a rule that all surgical specimens had to go to pathology, which would have cost 150 dollars in itself. So I quietly had to have the medical staff bylaws changed, which I wasn’t sure was going to go through. [I changed the bylaws] to say “dermatologic skin tissues and abortion”—I don’t know how we phrased it—“didn’t have to go.”

Heller described his feelings of isolation and ostracism as he moved from a hospital environment to Planned Parenthood’s outpatient abortion facilities.

When I decided to leave the hospital and be medical director, I became professionally completely isolated. There was no other doctor around when I worked mainly in Utica and Schenectady. There were virtually no sympathetic doctors in Utica and there was one in Schenectady, but I didn’t see them. At the hospital here there was a whole cadre of specialists and sub-specialists so that if there were medical problems I could turn to them. I could see my colleagues every day. One never knew at the clinic how one would be received when one called the patient’s primary doctor or specialist if they had a medical problem. So it was always sort of like a deep breath; give them a call. Some were fine. Some weren’t that nice at all.

Heller also described his struggles with depression and alcoholism while working for Planned Parenthood. Heller tries to downplay the seriousness of his mental health issues and alcohol abuse, as substance abusers are known to do. However, throughout the interview, Heller purposely attempted to make himself look good while wrongly depicting pro-live advocates as “violent.”

It was two months before my daughter was born. I had had all kinds of treatment. I had had individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, marital therapy and some psychoanalysis because I had a lot of emotional problems, which is why we didn’t have kids for such a long time. But two months before my daughter was born I really realized that I didn’t want to be a parent and drink. I don’t know. It was a gift. It was not so much difficult not to drink, but difficult in overcoming the shame of being a doctor that drank. It wasn’t complicated. I just didn’t drink and I went to AA [Alcoholics Anonymous] for twelve years. I just made that decision. I guess that’s the story of that. It wasn’t that complicated really. What it did for me was, besides it was a difficult thing, it also helped me to join the human race in a way that I never could have before.

Ironically, Heller credits his pre-born daughter for giving him the strength to stop drinking.

I didn’t drink at work. I drank at night to be able to sleep, because I think it was a treatment for my depression and not a good one, but it was what I used to sort of manage it. I used to get panic and anxiety attacks. [Laughter] When patients came with those, there were colleagues who said, “Oh they’re just crazy.” I was always very comfortable with the crazy patients, because I had known horrible that feeling is; afraid you’re gonna live, afraid you’re gonna die. It’s hard to say. I think I was less crabby. I rarely drank large quantities, but I drank enough pretty much every night to sleep, but it still makes you crabby the next day. . . I was lucky. I was really lucky. It was because of my daughter. She’s the one; I think her spirit came to me before she was born somehow and gave me that gift.

Heller claims to have done over 14,000 abortions during his career. It is hard not to wonder what “gifts” those 14,000 human beings might have been to their family and communities, had it not been Marc Heller.

Thankfully, Heller’s New York medical license profile now lists his license as “Inactive.”

“Here is a man who admits he worked for years at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities while suffering from unresolved serious mental disorders and alcoholism. His story typifies what we find over and over inside the Abortion Cartel,” said Newman. “There are abortionists with similar problems that are still working every day at abortion facilities around the country. They hide their problems from medical boards and from their patients. It doesn’t matter how new a building is or how much Planned Parenthood paid for it, because their abortionists, like Marc Heller, still pose a very serious invisible danger to women everyday.”
