Posted on 05/03/2013 12:31:27 PM PDT by Morgana
Planned Parenthood of Delaware has temporarily halted surgical abortion services. This action makes Delaware the first state to be free from surgical abortions for any significant period of time since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision decriminalized abortion.
The Planned Parenthood clinic in Dover has temporarily suspended surgical abortions while the Wilmington affiliate has closed completely for cleaning and re-staffing, according to Planned Parenthood statements to the media and on their website. At least three employees, one thought to be troubled abortionist Eric Schaff, have quit or been fired since dangerous conditions at the facilities were exposed.
In recent weeks Planned Parenthood of Delaware was the subject of a hard-hitting series of exposés by one of the nations leading pro-life advocacy groups, Operation Rescue.
In February, Operation Rescue was the first to reveal an alarming trend of abortion-related medical emergencies at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington. In March, the group also released video footage of an attack on a peaceful pro-life grandmother at the same location. Events cascaded quickly for the abortion provider, and now, Planned Parenthood of Delaware is under state investigation after Operation Rescue filed numerous complaints and organized its supporters to email and call Delaware authorities.
Operation Rescue assisted with ABC Action News investigation that documented the Wilmington clinics conditions. The shocking news report proves the unsanitary practices at this Planned Parenthood were no different than those inside Kermit Gosnells squalid House of Horrors in Philadelphia. Gosnell is currently on trial for 5 counts of murder and a host of other abortion-related crimes.
The allegations that shuttered this clinics surgical practice include: filthy conditions, use of unsterile medical equipment, over-medicated patients, and failure to wash hands between surgeries. In addition, several former employees and patients are in the process of filing lawsuits against the abortion giant for health code violations and medical malpractice.
The two Planned Parenthood facilities are the last remaining abortion facilities in Delaware after two affiliates of the Atlantic Womens Medical Services closed in 2011 when news of their association with Gosell surfaced and numerous health and safety violations were discovered.
Filthy clinics are the status quo in the abortion industry. Kermit Gosnell is not an outlier and the complaints against Planned Parenthood of Delaware prove that Big Abortion regularly puts the lives of women at risk for STDs, HIV and even death, said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue.
Newman continued: We now have the first state that is officially free from surgical abortions, at least for now. This will undoubtedly save babies and send a clear message to the abortion industry that regulation and oversight will shut them down for good.
Rev. Patrick J. Mahoney, Director of the Christian Defense Coalition in Washington, D.C., states: We celebrate the fact that, for the first time in 40 years, we have a surgically free abortion state. Even though these clinics may re-open shortly, this serves as a powerful reminder that abortion in America will soon be on the scrap heap of history.
Like with slavery and segregation, our nation is growing tired of the violence of abortion and how it crushes human rights, justice, and equality for all. Every major poll taken shows Americans are troubled by abortion on demand and its tragic consequences.
Delaware is providing a clear blueprint of how abortion will end in America. The pro-life movement will continue to chip away at Roe v. Wade through local initiatives, regulations and laws, until it no longer has any impact or standing.

Women of America stop listening to womyn!! You can’t dance with the devil and come out okay.
I think abortion will always be legal, but I also think there are fewer “Westerners” willing to perform them. Naturally we’ve found a way around it by importing soulless Asians to do it; those seeking to kill their children will have to accept Asian standards of treatment.
...while the Wilmington affiliate has closed completely for cleaning and re-staffing....
I'll bet, lest their filthy halls of death, like Gosnell's, be similarly exposed.
And that fly-ridden miscreant islamist in the Oval Office thanks God for abortion, which by taqiyya means allah.
And he does pray to allah, probably five times a day, for ways to kill more and more Americans.
It’s still too much a liberal hellhole. And it’s still probably just temporary.
But every day that goes by without a single clinic is sweet.
Delaware? No. This is disguised.
It might make a difference HOW it’s done to some, but God creates every one of those souls. Their size is irrelevant and their pain is momentary.
Abortions in the United States
Total number of abortions in the U.S. 1973-2011: 54.5 million+
234 abortions per 1,000 live births (according to the Centers for Disease Control)
Abortions per year: 1.2 million
Abortions per day: 3,288
Abortions per hour: 137
9 abortions every 4 minutes
1 abortion every 26 seconds
These statistics include only surgical and medical abortions. Because many contraceptive measures are abortifacients (drugs that induce or cause abortions), it is important not to overlook the number of children killed by chemical abortions. Since 1965, an average of 11 million women have used abortifacient methods of birth control in the United States at any given time. Using formulas based on the way the birth control pill works, pharmacy experts project that about 14 million chemical abortions occur in the United States each year, providing a projected total of well in excess of 610 million chemical abortions between 1965 and 2009.
