Ohio Senate Passes Bill to Stop Planned Parenthood From Dumping Aborted Babies in Landfills

Yesterday [25 May 2016], the Ohio Senate approved legislation that would require abortion businesses to treat the bodies of aborted babies humanely after the abortion. The bill came about after Planned Parenthood abortion sites were caught dumping aborted babies in landfills. The abortion business pays to have aborted babies “steam cooked” before dumping them in landfills. The bill requires that the remains of aborted children are given humane burial or cremation and increases informed consent by requiring full disclosure to women pursuing abortions of their options for the aborted baby’s treatment. The legislation was introduced in December when Attorney General Mike DeWine revealed Planned Parenthood to be sending aborted children’s remains to landfills. “The more our society learns about the horrors of abortion, the more we are obligated to respond with courage and compassion,” said Kayla Atchison, director of external affairs for Ohio Right to Life. “The Ohio Senate is fulfilling that obligation with their efforts to shine a light on the abortion industry’s inhumane practices, and their work to preserve the dignity of the unborn child. We thank Chairman Coley and the Senate Government Oversight and Reform Committee for their leadership and work to preserve the dignity of the unborn child.” “With careful attention to detail and sincere compassion for all victims of abortion, the Ohio Senate is leading the state’s efforts to recognize and respect the dignity of every human person,” said Kayla Atchison, director of external affairs for Ohio Right to Life. “While we know there is nothing dignified in the act of abortion itself, we believe that this legislation is necessary for ensuring respect for...

How Ultrasounds are Shaping Women’s Views on Abortion: Commentary

“Can’t choose abortion now.” Those were the words written on a feedback form after a young woman had a no-cost ultrasound at our pregnancy center. She came into the center undecided, but the pictures of her preborn child on the screen helped her make the decision to parent. I recently spoke to a woman who had an ultrasound at her OB/GYN, but struggled to view the images. She is pregnant with 13-week twins, and after the ultrasound, she scheduled to abort them. She couldn’t go through with it, though, so she skipped her appointment and came to our pregnancy center instead. The question of whether or not ultrasounds make a difference to women considering abortion and how they influence the world’s view of preborn life is the subject of a recent Cosmopolitan article. Writer Mattie Kahn asks the question, “Are ultrasound photos affecting abortion rates?” The article is a response to statements made by Ashley McGuire, a senior fellow at the Catholic Association. In an op-ed for USA Today titled, “The Ultrasound Generation,” McGuire made the claim that the pro-life movement is growing younger and stronger in thanks to an increase in ultrasound imagery and widespread social media. I would answer Kahn’s question by sharing some encouraging statistics. CareNet is a non-profit network that has 1,100 pregnancy centers in rural and urban areas. In their most recent report, they stated that in the last seven years, CareNet centers provided 698,649 ultrasounds – free of cost to women in need – and have a recorded number of 388,691 saved preborn lives. Since providing ultrasounds is one of CareNet’s most popular...

Report Affirms Abortion Is Greatest Genocide in History

Pro-life protesters hold signs imploring onlookers to “Defend Life.” There’s an old saying that if you torture the numbers long enough, they will confess to anything. Recently, the Guttmacher Institute, which has strong ties to Planned Parenthood, published yet another dubious, politically driven report that fudges the numbers on worldwide abortion incidence. Predictably, it is funded by abortion-friendly groups like the Packard Foundation, United Nations Population Fund, World Health Organization, and others. The main problem with the new Guttmacher report is that it does not include actual verifiable data for all countries. If the “government agencies” cited refer to ministries of health and other government offices that collect service reports and data from hospitals and abortion centers, then this data is most likely reliable. However, data compiled from so-called “national representative studies,” whether published or unpublished, are highly suspicious, and this raises important questions. How did these studies obtain their abortion data from the 60 countries where abortion is illegal? Who is reporting those abortions? How is data collected in countries where abortion is under-reported? What about countries that do not have strict reporting requirements and have trouble tracking things such as basic vital statistics, let alone abortion data? It is possible to track 12.4 million actually reported abortions annually worldwide, including in the top three countries of China, the United States, and Russia. But Guttmacher’s assertion that 56.3 million abortions occur worldwide annually is highly improbable and unprovable, not to mention that their total is four and a half times more than the actual documented data available. (Actual abortion data are available here for over 100 nations and...

St. Louis Fire Department Settles Suit, Reveals Details of 58 Medical Emergencies at Planned Parenthood Since 2009

Data shows third trimester abortions are being done at what is considered the most dangerous abortion facility in America. The St. Louis Fire Department has settled a lawsuit brought by Operation Rescue in 2013, which sought to obtain public information related to documented medical emergencies at the Planned Parenthood of Greater St. Louis abortion facility. Instead of the 31 expected emergencies that required ambulance transport, the St. Louis Fire Department provided Operation Rescue with a list of 58 medical emergencies, categorized by type of problem and priority level that took place at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility between January 1, 2009, and April 16, 2016. The suit was necessary because the St. Louis Fire Department had refused to comply with the group’s repeated requests for public information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). “We consider this settlement a victory since we were able to obtain a true listing of medical problems that sent women to the hospital from Planned Parenthood. Since Planned Parenthood receives public tax funding, the public has a right to know that women are being hurt there,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The information provided to us shows that the situation is far worse than we originally suspected, and proves that the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility is too dangerous to operate. It should be shut down immediately.” Of the 58 calls for emergency assistance placed by Planned Parenthood beginning in 2009, there were 50 Urgent Priority 1 emergencies. This would include life-threatening conditions. By far, hemorrhage of a dangerous or possibly dangerous nature was the most common complication with 23 reported incidents. Medical...

Groups Protest Stericycle, the Abortion Enabling Company That Processes Planned Parenthood’s Aborted Babies

A pro-life group will protest the annual shareholders meeting of the company Stericycle, which process the bodies of the babies aborted at Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The pro-life group Created Equal says the medical waste disposal company is “enabling” Planned Parenthood to kill unborn children. “Evidence shows Stericycle has been partnering with Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry through their collection, transportation, and disposal of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them,” it told LifeNews. The waste company has unsuccessfully tried to stop the pro-life group from exposing its link to Planned Parenthood. “Created Equal launched #ProjectWeakLink — http://killersamongus.org/ — on March 29 by distributing informational postcards in the Lake Forest, IL area, which is home to Planned Parenthood business partner Stericycle. On March 31, Created Equal was notified by Stericycle’s attorneys that the company was seeking a temporary restraining order to stop the campaign,” the group said. “On May 25, Created Equal will be conducting a demonstration at the company’s annual shareholders meeting.” The meeting will [did] take place at the Double Tree Hotel at 5460 N River Rd in Rosemont, Illinois on May 25. Mark Harrington of Created Equal told LifeNews: “To date, Stericycle has not provided sufficient evidence regarding whether they have discontinued transporting and disposing of aborted children and the instruments used to kill them for Planned Parenthood and other abortion facilities. Therefore, we will be appealing to Stericycle’s shareholders to get clarification on the company’s Waste Acceptance Protocol and encourage them to consider whether closely affiliating with the Planned Parenthood and the abortion cartel is a wise financial decision.” According...

Black Abortionist Thinks the Real Reason Pro-Lifers Oppose What He Does is They’re Racist

[Comment: About 60% of all abortions done in Alabama are of Black babies. Parker primarily does abortions at abortion businesses with high numbers of Black clientele. Since pro-life volunteers are trying to prevent all women from aborting their babies, and offering them support and help, perhaps Parker should consider that he might actually be the one conducting Reproductive Racism. Black women may be ‘disproportionate’ in the U.S. population; but, if that third of all abortions every year are of Black babies, then literally MILLIONS of Black children have been aborted since 1973 when abortion was legalized. Perhaps the Black population would not be so ‘disproportionate’ if the Black community had not been so short-sighted. Furthermore, anyone calling out angry comments toward abortionists or clients is NOT pro-life and should be asked to never return.] Southern abortionist Willie James Parker has become a media darling on pro-abortion news sites in the past few years [, as he seeks national and international recognition]. He frequently talks about how his faith led him to become an abortionist and once even called his abortion practice a “ministry.” In his latest interview with Huffington Post writer Laura Bassett, Parker talked about racism and abortion. A Black abortionist who works in Mississippi and Alabama, Parker said people in the South often assume that white men are the doctors and that he is going into the abortion business to accompany a pregnant wife or girlfriend. Bassett wrote: The regular protesters at the clinics [sic] where he works hurl racial epithets at him, like “filthy Negro abortionist,” or accuse him of being a “race traitor” for performing...

St. Louis Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes 31st Abortion Patient in 7 Years

Update: St. Louis Fire Department Settles Suit, Reveals Details of 58 Medical Emergencies at Planned Parenthood Since 2009 Mary Maschmeier, President of Defenders of the Unborn, has reported that an abortion patient of the Planned Parenthood facility in St. Louis, Missouri, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital on Friday, May 13, 2016, at about 3:00 p.m. Maschmeier told Operation Rescue that the patient suffered a “botched” abortion that represents the 31st abortion-related medical emergency documented at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood since 2009. Operation Rescue has declared it among the most dangerous abortion facilities in America. “The public has the right to know why so many women are being maimed at this abortion center, especially in light of the fact that Planned Parenthood continues to receive tax dollars,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. That Planned Parenthood office is the only remaining abortion facility in Missouri. It recently came under investigation by the Missouri Interim Senate Sanctity of Life Committee, which discovered that aborted baby remains from that facility were being illegally dumped in Indiana. The committee issued subpoenas to Mary Kogut, CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region, and James Miller, owner of Pathology Services Inc., (the pathology company used by Planned Parenthood’s high volume St. Louis abortion facility), seeking information about tissue disposal policies as well as the numerous medical emergencies that regularly occur at the St. Louis facility. At first Kogut and Miller resisted the subpoenas, but once contempt proceedings were initiated by the State Senate, Kogut capitulated and agreed to turn over documents. Miller, whose pathology business would have been responsible...

Obama & His FDA ‘Gift’ the Abortion Industry: Reckless Expansion of Mifepristone (‘Abortion Pill’) Protocol

Late Chemical Abortions = More ‘Failed Abortions = Pay Twice to get a complete abortion… RU-486 makes teen girls ‘bleed out pregnancies,’ often without parents’ knowledge. One of the leading pro-life organizations is fighting back against the Obama administration’s approval for expanded use of the controversial abortion drug combination known as RU-486, calling the government’s decision harmful for women and babies and nothing but a political “thank you” from Obama to his allies in the abortion industry. The Food and Drug Administration, or FDA, which recently clamped down on e-cigarettes and some tobacco products to protect the health of children, is allowing women seeking abortions to take the RU-486 regimen until the 10th week of pregnancy. Previously, the limit was seven weeks. RU-486 is a two-drug regimen. The first starves the unborn baby of nutrients, leading the child to die. Live Action Founder and President Lila Rose says at 10 weeks, that baby is further developed than many realize. “The heart is beating,” she told WND and Radio America. “The brain is forming, leg and arm buds. By the end of the first trimester, the child has all his internal organs and body parts. He just needs time and nourishment to grow. You’re talking about a fairly developed pre-born child.” The second drug is even more powerful. “The second drug [usually misoprostol] induces labor,” Rose said. “It makes a woman bleed out her entire pregnancy as well as the pre-born child. That process can take up to two days” […and can prove extremely painful]. In addition to the FDA giving its approval for RU-486 for an additional three weeks,...

Congress Subpoenas Abortionist Leroy Carhart, and Caught Without Lab Permit Since 2013

Update:  Carhart’s Maryland Late-Term Abortion Business Caught Operating without a Lab Permit An inspection of Germantown Reproductive Health Services (GRHS) conducted last fall discovered that the late-term abortion facility had been operating without a current medical laboratory permit. Late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, who is under investigation by the House Select Panel on Infant Lives, commits abortions at GRHS in Germantown, Maryland, throughout all nine months of pregnancy. Operation Rescue has obtained a copy of the inspection report dated September 25, 2015, that cites GRHS for failing to maintain a current medical laboratory permit. It allowed its permit to expire in August, 2013. The abortion facility was also cited for displaying an expired license. But perhaps more concerning was a citation for failing to ensure that GRHS employees were proficient in testing women for the Rh blood factor. This had the potential of affecting the health of patients and any future children that they might bear. According to the American Pregnancy Association, “The Rh factor is a type of protein on the surface of red blood cells. Most people who have the Rh factor are Rh-positive. Those who do not have the Rh factor are Rh-negative.” The APA goes on to explain that if a woman is Rh-negative and is pregnant with an Rh-positive baby, the mother can develop antibodies that can attack future babies in the womb. Those antibodies can “break down the fetus’s red blood cells and produce anemia (a condition that happens when the blood has a low number of red blood cells). . . It can become severe enough to cause serious illness, brain damage, or...

Oklahoma & Kansas De-fund Planned Parenthood, OK Medicaid Agency Cancels Its Contracts

The state of Oklahoma is taking steps to divorce itself from the Planned Parenthood abortion business after the company was caught selling the body parts of aborted babies. A Medicaid agency is canceling the contracts it has with the abortion company. Last year, Oklahoma pro-life Gov. Mary Fallin called for defunding Planned Parenthood after a state review discovered that the abortion giant’s state affiliates may be over-billing Medicaid. Fallin that the Oklahoma Health Care Authority end its contracts with the abortion business’s affiliates that operate in the state. Her call came after a state review of Planned Parenthood found a high rate of billing errors to Medicaid, 20.3 percent in one review and 14.1 percent in another, according to a letter Fallin submitted to the state Health Care Authority Board director, Nico Gomez. In the past two years, the state gave the two Planned Parenthood affiliates more than $300,000 for Medicaid claims, according to Fallin’s office. “These results are alarming,” Fallin said in the letter. “These errors result in over-billing to the Oklahoma taxpayer. Research strongly suggests that Planned Parenthood and its Oklahoma and national affiliates regularly, whether intentionally or negligently, engage in a pattern of practices resulting in the over-billing of state Medicaid programs.” Now, those contracts are ending: Oklahoma Health Care Authority Chief Executive Officer Nico Gomez said the agency notified Planned Parenthood of Central Oklahoma and Planned Parenthood of Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma in February of its intent to terminate provider agreements with the two affiliates. “My decision in February was made based upon what I firmly believe to be the best interests of this agency...

Planned Parenthood Announces Abrupt Closure of its Abortion Facility in Dubuque, Iowa

STOPP International has publicized that Planned Parenthood announced the abrupt closure of its abortion facility in Dubuque, Iowa this past Friday [29 Apr 2016]. STOPP has worked closely with Iowa Right to Life for the last 20 years. In that time, we have helped close 16 Planned Parenthood facilities and stopped the opening of SIX NEW ONES there, for a total of 22 abortion businesses. And now one of its largest death centers is closed in Dubuque. No sooner than the closure was announced, it was discovered that the Obama Administration had quietly just given “Planned Parenthood Heartland” $5 Million of our tax dollars under the guise of “sex education” for children as young as five. [BTW, “Planned Parenthood Heartland?” What an absurd name. It’s like saying “Nazi Care Center.” Ridiculous.] As of the end of April 2016, seven Planned Parenthood abortion facilities have closed or failed to open in just the first four months of this year. The government just gave this disgusting organization $5 Million. We have never received one penny from the government, nor would we want one, ask for one, or take one.

U.S. Late Term Abortion Numbers

On 15 March 2016, the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee conducted a hearing entitled ‘Late-Term Abortion: Protecting Babies Born Alive and Capable of Pain’, during consideration of late-term abortion ban legislation. In conjunction, Operation Rescue released a report on the number of late-term abortion facilities in the nation. Currently in the USA, there are 511 active surgical abortion sites. Of those, 162 surgical abortion places abort babies at 20 weeks gestation or later, and 122 of those say they do not abort babies after 24 weeks. Five abortion sites openly abort babies throughout all nine months of pregnancy, including Martin Haskell’s Women’s Med Center in Dayton, OH. [April-May 2016, Cincinnati Right to Life Ed. Fdn. Inc.

Doctor Refuses to Say What Happens to Babies After They’re Aborted at Planned Parenthood

Missouri state legislators are closer to learning what goes on behind the scenes at Planned Parenthood, but their state investigation faced a new roadblock this week after a pathologist who works with the abortion giant refused to testify. State legislators launched an investigation of Planned Parenthood last year after undercover videos revealed some of the abortion business’s top officials discussing the trafficking of aborted babies’ body parts. One of the undercover videos mentioned the abortion chain’s St. Louis clinic as an “untapped supplier” of baby body parts. Planned Parenthood leaders in Missouri stalled the investigation when they failed to answer a state subpoena for information in November. Late last week, the abortion group finally reached an agreement with state lawmakers to hand over documents pertaining to its disposal of aborted babies’ bodies, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Keep up with the latest pro-life news and information on Twitter. However, pathologist James Miller, the owner of Pathology Services of St. Louis, which works with Planned Parenthood to analyze fetal tissue, is refusing to testify after he also was subpoenaed for information, ABC 17 News reports. An attorney for Miller told the news outlet that he planned to use his fifth amendment rights against self-incrimination to not testify in front of the state Senate. Miller and Mary Kogut, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region and Southwest Missouri, had been summoned to testify in front of the state Senate on Monday to explain why they did not answer the subpoena; but the meeting was canceled when Planned Parenthood finally agreed to comply, according to the report....

Alabama Abortion Business Inspected: Aborting ‘Viable’ Babies, Expired Equipment, Hospitalizing a Patient

Alabama Department of Public Health has detailed how an Alabama abortion facility sent a patient to the hospital, failed to document whether 16 unborn children were viable before aborting them, and possessed expired medical equipment. The patient was transferred from the West Alabama Women’s Center to a hospital in repository distress in August 2015, according to a deficiency report detailing the facility’s lack of compliance with health regulations. Contradicting protocol, sixteen out of 22 records that inspectors examined didn’t list whether the unborn child aborted was viable. According to the ADPH report, protocol dictates that, “If the physician determines that the fetus is viable, the pregnancy shall not be terminated at the abortion or reproductive health center except when an immediate abortion is necessary to preserve the life or physical health of the mother.” In addition to not recording whether 16 unborn children were viable before aborting them, the West Alabama Women’s Center also failed to document: Results from a patient’s lab/ultrasound work The size of a suction cannula that was used in abortion Whether an unborn child was aspirated out of his or her mother’s womb manually or electronically A patient’s estimated blood loss from a surgical abortion and whether the child who was aborted “appeared normal or abnormal” The fetal age of an unborn child, the condition of the mother following the abortion, if the “products of conception was [sic] normal for the gestational age,” and “if the patient requested to see the products of conception and if pregnancy tissue was seen.” According to the deficiency report, inspectors found 15 cannulas, 16 curettes, 46 disposable rigid curettes,...

What Happened to ‘Safe, Legal and Rare’? Abortion Today is All About Profit

When was the last time you talked to a woman who had suffered, with regret, through the abortion process? As you listened to her tell her story, what did you learn? Did you hear her regret, frustration, embarrassment, and confusion? Any time abortion becomes part of the public debate, many people run to their corner with their predetermined position. Their mind is made up, and they have their position on the issue. I, like many women, return to one simple question that has served as a trustworthy guide over the years: “Who is being harmed?” Learning about harm comes from listening to women, learning their stories. This is not merely intellectual content; it is discernment about what is in the heart of each of us. The modern abortion culture that once said it was all about “safe, legal and rare,” has today set mothers against their own children as though they are enemies. Instead of providing genuine counseling and support for women during a difficult time and a hard decision, staff members add up tallies on white boards listing the business’s abortion quotas for the month, according to what we have heard from former managers of abortion businesses. Managers of those places recount being told that “everyone who is pregnant who comes through the door gets an abortion.” Clinic workers are told to “up-sell” everyone with additional testing, products, and services — all to improve the bottom line. Basically, these abortion ‘clinics’ are looking for profit. Abortion businesses that 15 years ago would’ve spent an hour with young pregnant women now brag that they see five women in an...

Exposed: REAL Reason FDA Chemical Abortion Guidelines Changed

Visit http://www.physiciansforlife.org/exposed-abortion-pill-ru-486-mifepristone-mifeprex-whatever-they-call-it-it-harms-women-kills-babies/ to learn about the consequences of these recently ‘relaxed but reckless’ FDA Guidelines for Abortion Pill Use Main Article On March 30th, 2016, the FDA, under the guidance of the Obama administration, made big changes to the rules regarding the use of chemical abortions. Many on the pro-choice side are claiming this move was to expand women’s abortion access. However, in a new video series by Life Dynamics called The Real Story, President Mark Crutcher states that abortion clinics have been providing chemical abortions at one-third dosages for pregnancies that were well past the cut-off date since day one. He reveals that the real reason for the FDA’s decision was to protect abortion industry profits. FDA Smoke and Mirrors – the decision to protect abortion industry profits. (FDA chemical abortion) Mark Crutcher gives the real story behind the decision to change FDA chemical abortion guidelines in the video, The Real Story: FDA’s Strategy to Protect the Abortion Industry’s Profits   (see link  below) Crutcher adds that the abortion industry realized that smaller doses and performing them at much later stages of pregnancy is “a gold mine.” “One-third dosages increase profits, and using it past the specified cut off date grows the customer base.” But with such measures come increased risks and complications. Life Dynamics knows this perhaps better than anybody. For the past 20 years, the pro-life organization has been providing litigation support services to attorneys who sue on behalf of women who have been killed, injured or sexually assaulted while having abortions. Traditionally, incomplete abortions accounted for a small number of cases that they assisted with. But...

Planned Parenthood & Entire Abortion Industry Killed Women By Misusing the Chemical Abortion Pill, So Now FDA Relaxes Protocol Requirements Even More

The Planned Parenthood abortion corporation has long ignored FDA rules and subjected women to dangerous abortions by giving them the abortion drug outside the guidelines the FDA had put in place. The abortion drug is responsible for the deaths of dozens of women worldwide, including several in the United States alone, and it has injured at least 1,100 women in the United States alone as of 2006 figures from the Food and Drug Administration. But that hasn’t stopped the agency from deciding today to change the rules and guidelines the abortion industry once had to [were supposed to] follow to protect women’s health. The dangerous RU 486 abortion drug has nearly claimed the lives of two million unborn children in the United States since its approval at the end of the Clinton administration. In addition to the number of unborn children whose lives have been lost to the abortion drug, women have suffered as well, as a Planned Parenthood study admits at least one woman is seriously injured from the abortion pill daily. Because of the high failure rate and the risks involved with RU-486 in later pregnancies, the FDA originally limited approval for use only in the first 49 days from the start of a woman’s last menstrual period. Planned Parenthood, by its own admission, ignores this limitation. Now, the Food and Drug Administration announced on Wednesday, that it had caved to Planned Parenthood’s demands and altered the approved use of Mifeprex, (also known as Mifepristone or RU486), to come in line with off-label protocols used by Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses. The FDA has announced that...

Abortion Business Shown Pushing “Group Purchasing Program” To Make Money Selling Aborted Baby Parts

The citizen investigators behind the series of undercover videos exposing Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry selling the body parts of aborted babies have released yet another video. This new undercover video exposes more of the profit motive behind the sales of the body parts. In the new footage, taken of executives with the National Abortion Federation, abortion industry leaders are shown pushing a “group purchasing program” to provide more profits for abortion facilities selling aborted bay parts and financial kickbacks for the clinics involved. Previously unreleased covert video of representatives of the National Abortion Federation shows the Planned Parenthood-allied group suggesting a “group purchasing program” to supply aborted fetal tissue to buyers and encouraging them to exhibit at its annual meeting. NAF is currently seeking to permanently enjoin The Center for Medical Progress from releasing any footage obtained at its annual meetings in 2014 and 2015. The new footage shows NAF’s Training & Education representatives, responsible for planning the organization’s abortion trade shows, in conversation with actors posing as representatives of a start-up company to harvest and sell aborted fetal body parts. When the actors in the video explain, “We do donate the fees that we get from our researchers, we give a portion back to the clinics as just a thank you for letting us come in,” one NAF representative replies, “Yeah, it definitely sounds like something some our members would be really interested in.” The second NAF representative affirms this kickback arrangement to split the money from fetal parts as “a win-win” for the abortion clinics. As the video depicts, both NAF representatives also suggest that...
