Ambulance Called to Falls Church Abortion Facility with Documented Sanitation Citations

By Cheryl Sullenger

Falls Church, VA – An ambulance was called to the Falls Church Health Care Center abortion facility on February 3, 2018, to transport a woman to a nearby emergency room. Emergency responders were inside the facility for about 15 minutes before the woman was finally wheeled to the ambulance.

The incident was photographed by pro-life activist Ruby Nicado of Lifeguard, who told Operation Rescue that just as the woman was being brought out of the facility on a gurney, one clinic escort shoved an umbrella in to her face to block her camera. That aggressive move was unnecessary because the patient was completely covered with a sheet so her identity was never in jeopardy.

Moments later, the abortionist on duty that day, Jan Paul Fruiterman, emerged from the abortion facility and rode with the ambulance to the hospital.

Operation Rescue attempted to retrieve records related to the expected 911 emergency dispatch, but none existed, making it likely the abortion facility bypassed the 911 system and called an ambulance directly. This practice results in slower response times than dialing 911, delaying care for those experiencing medical emergencies.

Nicdao was able to learn that the patient was alive when she reached the hospital and “improved a great deal quickly” once there.

The Falls Church Health Care Center has a record of failed inspection reports dating back to 2012, just prior to the enactment of minimum licensing requirements in 2013.

The most recent inspection report, dated November 17, 2016, contained 13 pages of citations. It noted “the agency was not incompliance” with licensing regulations.

Citations included the failure to ensure that all employees participated infection control training. As a result, it was found that the facility had the following violations:

• Equipment was not properly cleaned between patients.
• Cleaning solutions were not prepared in accordance with manufacturer’s specifications. This can affect the effectiveness of the cleaners.
• Failed to observe sanitary practices for administering IV drugs.
• Failed to properly use personal protective equipment, such as eye protection during surgical abortion procedures.

The Falls Church Health Center also failed to ensure all employees were trained in fire safety or emergency/disaster training, engaged in shoddy record keeping, and other violations.

But perhaps most disturbing was an incident when one woman was given the abortion drug Misoprostol and a dose of Librium for anxiety prior to a scheduled surgical abortion. However, the abortionist had failed to determine the gestational age of the baby prior to dispensing abortion inducing drugs, as required. In Virginia, businesses licensed as Abortion Facilities are allowed to do abortions up to 13.6 weeks. Abortions later than that are required to be done at a hospital or Ambulatory Surgical Facility.

Uncomfortable with conducting the abortion beyond the legal limit, the unnamed abortionist discharged the patient with a prescription of birth control pills and a referral to another facility. There is no record of any follow-up to ensure the patient actually went to the other facility.

“Essentially, Falls Church Health Care gave a patient abortion-inducing drugs, then kicked her to the curb when it was discovered she was too far along. This was a huge lapse in compliance that placed the women, who was in her second trimester of pregnancy, in a potentially dangerous situation,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “With one failed inspection report after another along with practices that place the lives and heath of women in danger, this abortion facility should be closed.”

It is doubtful that will happen under the current Democratic state administration, which “eviscerated” licensing standards last year, rendering them nearly meaningless, according to Virginia Cobb, President of the Family Foundation. The Board of Health has also ended monthly reports on abortion facilities at their meetings, which had been previously required.

Crime Scene Unit Spotted at Florida Abortion Facility Under Investigation For Selling Baby Parts

By Cheryl Sullenger

West Palm Beach, FL – A van clearly marked “Crime Scene” from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department was seen yesterday at Presidential Women’s Center, an abortion facility located in West Palm Beach, Florida.

M. Susan Pine of FACE Life, Inc., told Operation Rescue that the van arrived at approximately 11:20 a.m. on Tuesday, February 6, 2018, and parked in the abortion facility’s parking lot. A uniformed officer then entered Presidential Women’s Center with some kind of paperwork in hand.

Pine reports that the abortion facility’s medical director, Daniel Sacks, was at the clinic during the Crime Scene unit’s visit.

Presidential Women’s Center was referred to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi by the House Select Investigative Committee on Infant Lives on November 30, 2016, due to PWC’s suspected involvement in the illegal trafficking of aborted baby organs and tissue.

Bondi’s office confirmed to Pine that the abortion business was indeed under “criminal review” on February 17, 2017, just two days after Operation Rescue published a report urging supporters to contact her office to ask if there were plans to act on the House criminal referral. Since then, Bondi’s office has remained silent on the status of the investigation.

However, it is unclear if the Crime Scene officer’s visit to PWC had any connection to the baby parts trafficking investigation.

“We are left to wonder exactly what the county was investigating when it sent a Crime Scene unit to the Presidential Women’s Center,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “There are any number of crimes that abortion facilities have been known to commit, such as failure to report child sex abuse, sex crimes, illegal late-term abortions, financial malfeasance, and the like, but speculation concerning this recent incident is difficult at this time.”

PWC is a member of the National Abortion Federation, a scandal-plagued association of abortion businesses that sued members of the Center for Medical Progress — including former board member Troy Newman — to block the release of undercover videos that implicated it and Planned Parenthood in crimes related to the illegal sale of aborted baby remains.

PWC conducts abortions up to 22.5 weeks gestation.

Take Action: Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act Scheduled for Senate Vote Today

By Cheryl Sullenger

Washington, D.C. — The Senate has scheduled a vote on the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act today, Monday, January 29, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. ET.

This bill would end abortions on babies at 20 weeks gestation and later since they are known to feel pain. Operation Rescue has long advocated for this legislation because it would save thousands of lives every year.

“Since we have an opportunity to save these babies, we should do all within our power to support this legislation,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We wish it spared all babies, but those it will save deserve our help and the protections this law will provide for them.”

The bill passed the House last year. If it passes the Senate today, President Trump has promised to sign it into law.

However, getting the approval of the Senate will be an uphill battle since he at least 60 votes are required to break the Democratic filibuster and allow a vote on the bill.

“The fact that Democrats would want to continue brutal late-term abortions, which dismember viable babies that feel pain, really shows the depths of human depravity – and how far our nation has slipped into barbarity,” said Newman. “If this bill doesn’t pass today, the blood will be on the hands of the Democrats once again.

Please contact your Senators now and urge them to vote in favor of the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act and pray today for its passage.

Abortionist Who Attempted Suicide Botches Laminaria Insertion; Woman Rushed to Hospital

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bakersfield, CA — An abortionist who survived a failed suicide attempt has injured another woman during part of a second trimester abortion procedure.

Patient J.P. was rushed to the hospital on January 17, 2018, after suffering complications to a botched laminaria insertion conducted the day before by abortionist Donald Clyde Willis at the FPA Women’s Health abortion facility in Bakersfield, California.

This is the seventh abortion-related medical emergencies caused by Willis. After injuring six women in 2017, his streak of carnage was temporarily halted after he appeared to have been involved in an accident of some sort in which he suffered a broken arm. He returned to work at the FPA abortion center earlier this month.

Patient J.P. was accompanied by her mother to the abortion facility after rebuffing her pleas for her daughter to keep her baby.

Once at the abortion facility for the completion of her abortion, Patient J.P. complained of severe pain and cramps and was seen by a second abortionist, Justin Diedrich, who called an ambulance to transport her to the nearby Adventist Health Hospital.

Upon arrival of the ambulance, the mother saw the gurney with a woman completely covered in sheets, and began to ask if it was her daughter that was being transported. FPA staff refused to respond to her as the injured woman was loaded into the ambulance for transport.

Once the ambulance left, Diedrich, called J.P.’s mother inside and explained that when Willis had inserted the laminaria dilators, he had “poked a hole” internally and that the laminaria “went through the wrong thing.”

Perforations of the uterus or cervix are known complications to laminaria insertion that are caused when the dilators are inserted with too much force.

Pro-life activists on the sidewalk befriended the mother, and later, the injured woman. One pro-life volunteer, Mary Darrah, has remained in contact with them, according to Tim Palmquist, a long-time pro-life activist who recorded the ambulance incident.

According to Palmquist, J.P. was rushed into surgery where doctors worked on repairing the damage for about two hours. She required at least two pints of blood, indicating there may have been serious internal injuries and hemorrhaging. Her dead baby was delivered at the hospital.

J.P. told Darrah the abortionist Justin Diedrich attempted to contact her while she was in the hospital, but she refused to speak with him. She said that she never wanted to return to the FPA Women’s Health again.

“Less than a week after returning to work at the FPA abortion business, Willis botches yet another procedure and sends another woman to the hospital. This illustrates Willis’ incompetence and the danger he poses to women,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The woman apparently regrets her abortion decision and now needs our prayers.”

Operation Rescue filed a complaint against Willis last year after the spate of abortion-related injuries suffered by women raised questions of incompetence. That complaint has been accepted by the California Medical Board and it remains under investigation.

In 1993, a depressed Willis attempted suicide over a difficult divorce. As he sat in a park behind his Oregon home, he put a gun to his forehead and pulled the trigger. Surprisingly, he survived. After he was well enough, Willis spent three months confined to a mental hospital.

Other medical emergencies involving Willis are listed below.

October 3, 2017: A 23-year old Hispanic woman suffered a perforated uterus during an abortion. Once at the hospital, she suffered cardiac arrest. Her heart reportedly stopped for five minutes before doctors could revive her. Her injuries were so serious that she received an emergency hysterectomy.
January 10, 2017: A woman was extracted from the abortion business completely wrapped in sheets without any visible signs of ongoing treatment. It is unknown if she was still alive.
February 4, 2017: (First Incident) A patient was wheeled out of the abortion business and transported with no lights or sirens to Kern Medical Center.
February 4, 2017: (Second Incident) A woman was transported by ambulance to San Joaquin Hospital’s emergency room. She was covered in a sheet, but was obviously receiving ongoing medical care.
February 18, 2017: A female patient was transported from FPA Women’s Health to a nearby hospital. The disturbing pattern of botched abortions caused Operation Rescue to issue an Urgent Public Safety Advisory to women seeking abortions in the area of Bakersfield, California.
August 19, 2017: A woman who appeared to be awake and moving was transported to Kern Medical where she was rushed into the emergency room.
