The Healthcare You Can Expect from Planned Parenthood

On July 26, 2015, Cecile Richards, President of Planned Parenthood Federation of America, visited ABCs “This Week”. In an attempt to persuade America to side with her organization, Richards made the following statement: “Planned Parenthood has broken no laws. We have the highest standards. The care and safety of our patients is our most important priority”. Let’s take a moment to examine a few examples of the care women can expect to receive in one of Planned Parenthood’s surgical centers where baby parts are collected and sold.

Emergency 911 records revealed a February 20, 2015, incident where a 38-year old pregnant patient suffered seizures and was unresponsive. The Planned Parenthood worker at first told the 911 dispatcher that the woman had no history of seizures, then corrected herself and indicated the patient had a medical history of seizures and suffered an episode just four months prior.

Ambulances were called to the Bedford Heights, Ohio Planned Parenthood abortion center on March 27 and May 11, 2015. In both cases “advanced life support” was administered on the scene, indicating that the emergencies were more serious in nature than “basic life support” incidents.

For the 28th time in less than six years, a patient of the Central West End Health Center of Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Missouri, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital for emergency care that could not be provided by Planned Parenthood.

911 recordings show that a Planned Parenthood patient in Spokane Washington who was transported to the hospital on April 15, 2015, was hemorrhaging.

In May, 2015 an abortion patient in Lincoln, Nebraska suffered a medical emergency and was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment that the Planned Parenthood facility was not equipped to provide. 

After just 42 days in business, a patient at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Victorville, CA was rushed to the hospital suffering from an unspecified medical emergency. However, the Victorville clinic is not supposed to be doing abortions. 

During late summer or early fall of 2012, Carla M. Murray complained to her supervisor, Thelma Mendoza, that the clinic was violating the law by permitting non-licensed personnel to gain access to a locked medication cabinet and dispense medication to patients after a teenager was given a Depo-Provera shot against her will. Murray was fired.

On May 3, 2012, Timothy  David Smith transported his thirteen-year-old step-daughter to Planned Parenthood in Denver, Colorado, for an abortion appointment that Timothy had forced her to schedule. None of the four Planned Parenthood staff reported or questioned Smith or his step daughter on the relationship. Instead they gave her an abortion, a birth control shot and sent her back home with her abuser who had been abusing her since she was six.

On July 20, 2012, a Chicago, Ill Planned Parenthood abortionist botched a second trimester abortion on a young African-American woman named Tonya Reaves. While Reaves’ life ebbed away, the abortionist delayed her transport to the hospital for 5½ hours. She spent the time in between scraping Reaves womb another two times, performing several other abortions

Planned Parenthood paid out $1.5 million in damages to the family of a 14-year-old, after she sustained permanent injuries from an abortion procedure performed by Colin Walters.

These are just a few examples of the health care that is Planned Parenthood’s priority. Their health care results in aiding and abetting child molesters; providing  substandard care that results in the hospitalization of patients and sometimes infertility and the ultimate price, substandard care that results in death. Women beware - Planned Parenthood’s multi-billion dollar care is a trap and snare for you, your baby and your baby’s body parts. Beware!

Abortion as Healthcare? Not so Much

Barbara Lee, D, Representative for California’s 13th district, introduced a bill to allow taxpayer funding for abortion. While many considered her offering nothing more than a publicity ploy, I think it was something more. Her offering is a deliberate write off of her Black constituents. She and many others in the Congressional Black Caucus have done this  for years - favored the Caucasian eugenics advocates who so craftily push for removal of all restrictions when considering abortion – a part of their population control agenda.  Everyone knows the open secret of abortion: Black and Latina women are routinely targeted and Planned Parenthood's Negro Project ensures population control targets are met. 

Using the usual inflammatory rhetoric, Congresswoman Lee made claims designed to incite- women are under attack because taxpayer dollars are not allowed to fund abortion. Her bill, The Equal Access to Abortion Coverage in Health Coverage Act, would allow the use of taxpayer funds in what they call abortion care. In order to achieve this lofty goal, Congresswoman Lee and those supporting the EACH Woman Act called for a repeal of the Hyde Amendment so that women can make the best healthcare decision for herself and her family. 

Two years ago, while presenting opening arguments in the trial of Kermit Gosnell, the most heinous serial killer in the nation’s history, Defense Attorney Jack McMahon said:  “They want to put Mayo Clinic standards on a West Philadelphia clinic. If you want Mayo Clinic standards, go to the Mayo Clinic.”  This opening salvo framed the reality that the healthcare pro-abortion supporters are willing to allow poor women entering a “low-cost, urban, poverty-stricken clinic” to face are Gosnell like conditions even if it may cost them their lives. Never mind the odors, rusted and blood stained equipment, pipes and toilets clogged with aborted baby parts. Ignore the aborted baby parts lining the walls and separate but equal waiting rooms. Ignore the reality that those giving you anesthesia are high school students and ill equipped to respond to an emergency.  

Pro-abortion forces say the expectation of these women should be an environment of substandard medical care that may render them infertile or dead as has been the case with so many young, vibrant Black women that entered abortion centers in a growing list of states including California  Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, NY, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Massachusetts, and Maryland.  After all that is what they face each time they go into one of the centers the states have not inspected or enforced the laws against. McMahon, Planned Parenthood, National Abortion Federation, National Abortion Rights Action League, and others have worked tirelessly to ensure that abortion centers remain below the medical standards most expect of a facility where surgery is performed. They repeatedly defy state efforts to raise the medical standards in the centers, almost always stating raising the standards would require the closing of facilities because most abortionists can't meet them. Almost every salvo launched by those supporting abortion creates the illusion that women are being harmed by abortion restrictions. Yet, the facts show that the harm not from the restrictions, but from the abortion industry itself.
All across America there are reports of woman after woman being injured, molested, and/or assaulted in one of the unregulated abortion centers that dot urban areas.  Planned Parenthood has strategically placed more than 79% of its surgical centers within a two mile walking radius of a Black or Latina neighborhood. The stories surfacing from these and other abortion centers are not only horrifying, but life and fertility threatening
- Tonya Reaves bled for more than five hours in a Chicago Planned Parenthood. By the time they sought emergency medical treatment, it was too little to late and Tonya died.
- Twenty year old Rasheedah  Dinkins sought abortion services in a New Jersey center where she suffered massive hemorrhaging, a coma, a stroke and a hysterectomy in a second trimester abortion. Because of the abortion care she received, she will never have children and barely escaped with her life.
- Despite a finding by the Florida Medical board that abortionist Randall Whitney’s behavior created a danger to public health and safety, he was only fined $7500 after slapping a patient. 
-On March 10, 2015 James Scott Penderegraft, IV was observed sneaking into one of the five abortion centers he owns in Florida and was the only abortionist on the premises that day. Although his license is suspended and he is not authorized to practice in Florida, he performed abortions on several women before the police arrived. The police, however, refused to take action or ask questions. Florida media refused to report the story. 
- In his abortion career Arizona abortionist Brian Finkel had more than 30 complaints filed against him that ranged from allegations he "felt up" some of his patients to negligence. The complaints went unheeded until 2001 when he was arrested on 16 counts of sexual molestation, one victim stating he held his hand over her mouth as he assaulted her. By the time of the trial in 2004, Finkel was facing 67 counts of sexual abuse and molestation. Of the one hundred women who contacted the police stating they were victims of his abuse, thirty five actually testified. No one knows the actual number of women assaulted in his center.

These are just a few of the numerous stories of substandard care provided in America’s abortion centers and state after state refuses to prosecute or hold accountable those abortionists that violate state civil and criminal laws. This is the abortion care that Congresswoman Barbara Lee and others want taxpayers to pay for. Abortion care is not healthcare and more often than not, your daughter, niece, cousin, sister or auntie will pay the price. We pray it is not with their lives…..
