BATON ROUGE, Louisiana, May 11, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) An abortion facility in Baton Rouge, Louisiana linked to notorious abortionist Kermit Gosnell has continued to operate even after investigations uncovered a long history of dangerous criminal and medical violations and after the National Abortion Federation (NAF) revoked the abortion facility’s membership, LifeSiteNews.com has learned.
According to the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report that uncovered the chilling practices at Gosnells House of Horrors clinic in Philadelphia, the Delta Clinic is owned by Leroy Brinkley, who also owns Atlantic Womens Medical Services, located in Wilmington, Delaware. Gosnell, who is facing the death penalty for allegedly murdering seven newborn infants as well as a former adult client, was employed at the Wilmington clinic, where he would sometimes work when not at his Philadelphia facility.
Additionally, one of Gosnells employees, Eileen ONeill, was a former employee at Delta, and was introduced to Gosnell by Brinkley. ONeill was arrested with Gosnell and is accused of falsely representing herself as a doctor to patients at Gosnells Philadelphia practice.
Delta has been the scene of Gosnell-like practices for years, with massive state and federal regulation failures, botched abortions, including the deaths of at least two women, the use of unlicensed doctors, and extensive falsification of records much of which has been frankly admitted to by the clinic.
Earlier this year Louisiana Senator David Vitter wrote to Governor Bobby Jindal calling for an investigation into the facility, and possibly its closure. Recent news reports connecting the Delta Clinic to the allegations being charged against this horrific abortionist in Philadelphia could justify shutting down the Delta Clinic, and we must take the appropriate steps to prevent endangering the lives of Louisiana women and children, he said.
However, despite the heightened public scrutiny of the facility in the wake of the Gosnell arrests, it is still business as usual at Delta.
One victim of the Delta clinic, referred to as Jane Doe for confidentiality reasons, told LSN this week that after two abortion pills prescribed by the clinic during her 2009 abortion failed, doctors at Delta botched a D&C abortion procedure which she says necessitated a hysterectomy a year later.
I tried to file medical malpractice against them, because due to the mutilation they did to me, I had to have a hysterectomy, Jane Doe told LSN.
However, the attorney says he cannot prove it because a year had passed, no doctor documented a reason. When I had the biopsy of the abnormal tissue during the hysterectomy, the OBGYN said its, Old Scarring. The only surgical procedure that I ever had was the abortion. So, I know thats why I had scar tissue.
In a witness affidavit from April 2011, Jane Doe recounted the physical and verbal abuse she suffered at the hands of the abortionist and workers at Delta.
Doe says she remembered herself and other clients being herded like cattle by rude workers at the clinic. During her D&C operation, Doe says she was yelled at and threatened physically by the abortionist and never given any type of anesthesia.
I was having surgery with no type of anesthesia whatsoever and I was told not to move due to pain or Doctor would yell at me more It hurt so badly, said Doe.
Following her hysterectomy last year, Doe attempted to obtain her record from the Delta Clinic, but without success. They are always closed when I go there. When I call they answer and are rude and dont care about my records. Plus, they say they are really not even open. I wouldnt trust the records anyway as I have read another affidavit from a former worker that explains that every patients records are the same routine answers, Doe told LSN.
Jane Doe is not the only victim from the Delta Clinic. Pro-lifers from the Baton Rouge Holocaust Memorial for the unborn, formerly the site of the old Delta Clinic, have watched the abortion facility for years. They have obtained state-documented evidence indicating child molestation, the bringing of at least one underage girl across a state line for an abortion, and numerous Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) violations.
Upon the request of Attorney Mike Johnson for the Holocaust Memorial, Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals (DHH) conducted a thorough investigation of Delta in 2009.
The result of the investigation was a 41-page Statement of Deficiencies.
Among violations noted by the DHH, Delta was accused of failing to ensure sterilization of syringes and intravenous injections to prevent infection and cross-contamination, failing to provide pre-abortion counselling as mandated by law, failing to provide required records to OPH Vital Records Registry, failing to ensure pre-op assessments for patient medical conditions, and failing to maintain confidentiality of patient information and records.
Most significantly, Delta was also found to have fraudulently pre-printed all of its state forms indicating there were no complications with any abortions; Delta has admitted to the fraud.
Pro-lifers say that Deltas falsification of reports also means that the entire states records on abortion statistics for years past are grossly underestimated.
This practice of falsifying legal documents to the DHHs Office of Vital Records is tantamount to the largest travesty of justice ever perpetrated by the medical establishment under the guise of womens reproductive health care, Richard Mahoney of the Holocaust Memorial told LSN.
While the Louisiana DHH now watches the clinic closely and conducts routine investigations, attorneys and those involved in the case maintain this is insufficient.
An attorney for the Holocaust Memorial told LSN that the Delta case indicates the kind of activity that could be going on at any number of abortion clinics without public knowledge. He has demanded that corrections be made to all Deltas falsified records and adequate penalties issued for offenses.
Witness Jane Doe also testified to the need for greater public awareness. The public needs to know that you only have one body and that child is one unique innocent child. Delta offers no counselling, she told LSN. The Doctor butchered me to say the least. That is my opinion.
I live life every day in mourning that I wish I never had the abortion and grieve for the child I should be raising, she said. I wonder if I was having a girl or boy. I dream at night about a little baby girl, so I refer to the unborn baby as she. I even named her without even knowing that the baby would have been female.
I have to live with the choice I made, the scars that I have and the images I see at night. There is always a better way. Seek it!
So, this abortion mill is so bad that even the other baby butchers won't have anything to do with them.

I can never understand “pro-lifers” trying to get such places shut down. These houses of horror are one of the best advertisements against abortion.
I mean, c’mon...Somebody expects a death-house to be a loving, cheery place? Full of smiling, happy people serving the well-being of their fellowman? Ha.
This “Jane Doe” creep sounds like a john complaining because the whore he hired had a padded bra. Or a junkie complaining he got stiffed with a nickel bag of Italian seasoning. You enter that world, you deal with its inhabitants.
The house-of-horror effect is part and parcel of the evil business of butchering babies. You want your baby made dead? You have to deal with butchers. Florence Nightingale doesn’t work there.
For Florence Nightingale, go someplace where they value life.
A baby is aborted EVERY 24 SECONDS in America and you think that the abortion rate would go down in pro-lifers quit protesting?
Your post has "concern troll" written all over it.
What position is that? You mean my pro-life position?
Tell ya what, if you want to dispute my position, start by summarizing it honestly.
Hey troll, I QUOTED your position, how can it get more honest than that.
Here we'll try it again.
I can never understand pro-lifers trying to get such places shut down. These houses of horror are one of the best advertisements against abortion.
Your post has "agree with me 100% or you're pro-abortion" written all over it.
I've never said that a person who doesn't completely agree with me is pro-abortion, but I will say that a person who OPPOSES SHUTTING DOWN ABORTUARIES is pro-abortion.
Hope I cleared everything up for you.
What was your point in posting to this thread?
Sounds like you want these butchers to adhere to “safe” and “legal” practices. Maybe pretty-up their death-dealing a bit. Why do you want this great evil shined and polished? Is it that you don’t want the house of horrors to give “honorable” abortuaries a bad name? What’s your deal?
Me, I want their evil to be ugly and gory, not clean and sanitary. I say let the world see it for what it is, in all its ugliness and goriness. Let these places utterly reek with the blood and death that pays their salaries. That way no mother who hires out her child’s murder can claim ignorance. She’ll know what she’s getting into before she hands them the blood money.
Your mileage may...well...yours may be completely off in the ditch, I dunno.
So you want to keep abortionists doing their job so that more people will realize how horrible abortion is.
Is that correct?
So you want to scrub away the ugliness from the house of horrors so that mothers-to-be will be fooled into thinking they’re going for a “clinic visit”?
There are, I’m convinced, plenty of young, pregnant, mothers-to-be who have been conned (often willingly) into believing it’s not a child growing inside them, that abortion is just another “visit to the doctor” to have a “growth” removed. All the white lab coats and hospital smell and insurance paperwork and medical terminology enhance the charade that this isn’t about death.
Well it IS about death. It’s ALL about death. And the more young, gullible, foolish women realize that this is a death industry, the more will have the CHOICE to spare their babies’ lives.
So no, I don’t want death all sanitized and prettied up. I want it to look, sound, smell, feel and taste like death. That way anyone who doesn’t like death can look for another CHOICE.
I want abortionists closed up.
Do you? Or do you want them to continue to ply their trade?
Imho, you’re not pro-life. You may be anti-abortion, but I’m not sure of that, either.
My sister (who I’ve pinged to this thread) is a RN and she works for a clinic which offers free pregnancy tests, free STD tests and free parenting classes. The do not offer abortions and do not refer to abortion centers, but she also doesn’t call those who decide on abortions sinners.
I think she would agree with everything you have said.
Ignore those who are calling troll on you.
I forgot to add, my sister’s clinic also offers free ultrasounds.
Back off wagglebee, he is not a troll.
There’s a world of difference between being anti-abortion and pro-life, imho. Someone who is pro-abortion may accept euthanasia. They may accept suicide. They may find the killing of the disabled or depressed to be acceptable.
