  • At The Abortion Clinic, She Had to Reassemble Body Parts to Ensure the Baby Really Died

    One of the tasks assigned to some abortion facility workers is to collect and reassemble the body parts of babies killed in abortions; and those assigned to this horrific task are called POC [Products of Conception] technicians. This job is necessary for the abortion industry because abortionists have to ensure that all body parts are removed from the woman’s uterus. If the body parts are not removed, the woman could get an infection and potentially die. For example, Tonya Reaves died at a Planned Parenthood in Chicago after the abortionist left pieces of placenta still attached to the inside of...

    In an article in The Washington Post, Arizona abortionist Gabrielle Goodrick talks about the new abortion restrictions in Arizona and how they have affected her business. Goodrick performs abortions at Camelback Family Planning in Phoenix. In the Washington Post article, she describes how she got started as an abortionist, doing abortions in her private practice. Goodrick says: Literally I needed a pulse oximeter to monitor their vitals, a vacuum machine and staff and a recovery room, and the knowledge and skills to do it. That’s it. No crash cart, no defibrillator, no oxygen, not even a set of plastic airways...

But Operation Rescue President Troy Newman is not fooled by the façade of Roth’s business and is familiar with him. “This is a guy that likes to call his place the Laser and Anesthetic Center, trying to mask off as being, I guess, a plastic surgeon,” Newman informed. “But in reality, all...

Yet there is a long list of abortion centers that have been found to be operating under disgusting, filthy conditions. We’ve seen abortion supporters dismiss such cases and focus on pro-lifers as the enemy, rather than stopping the abortion practitioners who have hurt women. Ignored is the fact that doctors like Kermit Gosnell were allowed to fly under the radar, injuring and killing women because of the lack of clinic regulations and oversight. Keep in mind that Gosnell had already killed one woman and injured many...

    Last month the State of Ohio ordered the closing of two the state’s abortion clinics: the Capital Care facility in Cuyahoga Falls and the Center for Choice facility in Toledo. A close look at state records sheds light on why, specifically, these abortion clinics were shut down—and reveals that most previous news reports haven’t told the whole story. Inspectors from the Ohio Department of Health visited the Cuyahoga Falls Capital Care abortion facility on February 14 and found a host of violations detailed in a 36-page inspection report [PDF]. The most serious of these violations were drug-related, which is why...

    I looked in the paper and saw a doctor’s office in need of a bilingual receptionist, someone who could schedule appointments for patients – it was perfect for me. I didn’t realize it was an abortion clinic. I was a Christian but abortion was not at the top of my list of concerns. I thought it was not a great option but really depended upon the woman’s situation. In my desperation, I put my beliefs aside, only worrying about putting food on the table for my three children and one on the way. As happens with a lot of abortion...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lindsay Lohan has checked into a rehab and will not face a probation violation for leaving another treatment facility after a few minutes, a prosecutor said Friday. Santa Monica Chief Deputy City Attorney Terry White said he has received confirmation that Lohan has checked in to a rehab facility and he is satisfied with her location. He declined to say where Lohan is receiving treatment, but a source close to the actress who was not authorized to speak publicly said she has checked in to the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

    April 26, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The parallels between Kermit Gosnell’s “house of horrors” in Philadelphia and Planned Parenthood of Delaware’s Wilmington clinic at 7th & Shipley Streets are too numerous to ignore. Most people think Gosnell an anomaly among abortion providers. They are ignoring a growing body of evidence to the contrary. Untrained staff, filthy equipment, unsterilized and reused instruments, complete lack of oversight by any governing agency, and abusive, contemptuous doctors are more the norm in freestanding abortion clinics than the public is willing to admit. 3601 Lancaster Ave. and 625 Shipley St. are ample proof that abortion in...

A young women was seen driving out following the ambulance when it left, presumably the friend of an abortion client. “Planned Parenthood...

    The Hillcrest Clinic abortion business located in Virginia will close its doors after being the first facility in its region of the state to do abortions. The abortion clinic could not meet the new health and safety standards the state health board approved recently and will shut down. According to a local report in the Virginian-Pilot newspaper: Virginia’s new licensing standards for abortion clinics, coupled with a drop in demand for pregnancy terminations, have driven the clinic out of business. “It’s a little bit bittersweet,” said Suzette Caton, Hillcrest’s director. “But I also feel like for 40 years we’ve had...

    When a Planned Parenthood representative testified against a Florida bill that deals with babies born alive during botched abortions, pro-choice activists claimed that this scenario never happens. However, live births due to botched abortions have been occurring ever since abortion was made legal. A number of clinic workers, doctors, and former abortionists have broken the silence and talked about these children who were denied medical care after being born alive. Clinic Workers Describe Babies Born Alive Pro-choice author Linda Bird Francke interviewed women who had had abortions and clinic workers for her book The Ambivalence of Abortion. She quotes one...

    On February 7, 29-yr-old Jennifer Morbelli, pictured right, died at a Maryland hospital the morning after LeRoy Carhart completed the abortion of her 33-wk-old baby in the Germantown, Maryland, mill at which he worked. Ironically, the day before Morbelli died the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene issued licenses to all 17 abortion clinics in the state without ever having inspected them, even though abortion clinic regulations had been enacted in November 2012. Carhart’s clinic is still operating, but on March 12 DHMH suspended the licenses of three other clinics associated with infamous late-term abortionist Steven Chase Brigham. According...

    A California committee today approved legislation that would allow nurses and midwives to perform abortions. The bill will next be heard in the Health committee following today’s 9-4 vote. The Assembly Committee on Business, Professions and Consumer Protection voted for the bill, which comes after the state took a first step next year and putting women’s health at risk by allowing non-doctors to perform surgical abortions — even though women have been killed and injured in abortions even when performed by licensed physicians. The Capitol Resource Institute, a pro-family group, is urging pro-life Californians to ask legislators to vote against...
