BREAKING: Carhart instructed patients not to go to ER, falsified safety of late-term abortions

wrote earlier this week that the Environmental Crimes Unit of the Maryland Attorney General’s Office has opened a criminal investigation against Germantown Reproductive Health Services in the wake of a complaint lodged by Germantown Pregnancy Choicesof it illegally dumping biohazardous and medical waste.

Although the complaint was filed in November 2012, it appears obvious the Maryland AG’s February 11 announcement of its criminal investigation came in response to the February 7 death of Jennifer Morbelli, a 29-yr-old patient of GRHS’s sole late-term abortionist, LeRoy Carhart.

There were other documents retrieved by pro-lifers from Carhart’s trash aside from those of which I posted photos.

Also collected between August 2011 and May 2012 were Carhart’s instructions to patients. There were three sheets found, all on the same color blue paper, two of three stating they were revised in October 2010. Since the previous revision was made 16 years earlier, it is reasonable to expect Morbelli was given these same instructions.

Of greatest interest, particularly in the wake of Morbelli’s tragic death, which came after the abortion of her 33-wk-old baby Madison Leigh, were Carhart’s instructions not to go to the ER in the event of an emergency, but instead to “call and we will meet you at the clinic,” which is clearly dangerous medical advice.

Furthermore, who is “we”? Carhart left the state the afternoon Morbelli’s abortion was completed.

In addition, if it is true, as was maintained by an informant close to the situation, that Morbelli’s family tried several times to unsuccessfully contact Carhart before going to Shady Grove Adventist Hospital’s ER, then this document is at the very least misleading, stating, “One of our staff is on-call 24 hours a day.” Again, that staff does not necessarily include the doctor himself.

In this case, Carhart’s self-serving motive at the expense of patient safety is to contain publicity about negative reactions to abortions.

Also, because Carhart has no hospital privileges – anywhere – his impotence as a primary care physician is that much more glaring when he is barred from an ER to provide contiguous care to a patient.

Did Jennifer Morbelli’s family delay getting her emergency medical treatment based on Carhart’s instructions? I hope they saved all their paperwork.

In addition was the following information on another Carhart document, particularly poignant in the wake of Morbelli’s death:

Death: Abortion is one of the safest operations in all medicine. The risk of a woman dying from full-term pregnancy & childbirth is over 10 times greater than that from an advanced gestation abortion.

Read bottom paragraph. 

Professor Michael New succinctly explained in a September 2012 NRO piece how “the data to back up this claim are, to put it charitably, misleading.” In fact, New explained just the opposite is actually the case, that there is “very strong evidence that giving birth is in fact safer than obtaining an abortion.”

At the very least Carhart was attempting to downplay the increased risk of late-term abortions, which even Planned Parenthood acknowledges.

Pro-life billboard towers over Planned Parenthood – for one day

Jackson Right to Life, in Michigan, followed all the rules when renting billboard space next to the Jackson Planned Parenthood.

For one glorious day a pro-life billboard towered over Planned Parenthood’s pathetic little abortion feeder with the simple but powerful message, “Choose Life = No Regrets.”

There was only one problem: The billboard was on Planned Parenthood’s property. Adams Outdoor Advertising had leased the billboard space but forgotten about Planned Parenthood’s addendum forbidding any pro-life messaging.

Click "like" if you are PRO-LIFE!

So just as quickly as the billboard went up, on June 9, it came down the next day. Adams is offering Jackson RTL other locations, and on the advice of attorneys Jackson RTL is accepting Adams’ offer and moving on.

But the snafu was all worth it for the amazing photo op, eh?

Planned Parenthood CEO’s annual salary now exceeds $500,000

Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards 2012-13 salary now exceeds $500k
According to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s 2012 IRS Form 990, CEO Cecile Richards made over one-half million dollars – $523,616, to be exact – for the fiscal year ending on June 30, 2013.

That’s a lot of money to pay the CEO of a nonprofit organization, particularly one that claims to cater to low-income women.

“Planned Parenthood works to make health care accessible and affordable,” boasts Planned Parenthood

Really? How much more affordable would Planned Parenthood’s services be were not its corporate bosses and affiliate CEOs making big bucks? For that 2012 reporting period, PPFA’s 12-member executive team tallied a combined income of $3.87 million.

When questioned by The Daily Caller in October 2012 about what was thought at the time to be an “almost $400,000 salary,” Richards responded, “None of my salary is paid for by the federal government.” 

But if “[n]early half of Planned Parenthood patients rely on Medicaid coverage,” as Planned Parenthood states, does Richards really think she’d be making the same coin were government funding – to the tune of $540.6 million in FY 2012-13 – removed from Planned Parenthood’s total revenue of $1.210 billion?

And actually, The Daily Caller was well over $100,000 off on Richards’ salary.

Turns out Richards made $583,323 during Fiscal Year 2011 (July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012). This represented a whopping 39% pay increase from the year before that, when she “only” made $420,153.

Cecile Richards campaigns Barack ObamaSo, actually, Richards’ 2012 salary of $523,616 represented a 10% pay cut.

But this was because she took time off from Planned Parenthood to campaign for President Obama’s reelection – which paid off for Planned Parenthood handsomely via windfall income via Obamacare and other government funding streams, only kept flowing by Obama and other pro-abortion politicians.

This sort of financial cushion then frees up Planned Parenthood to raise and spend money to elect pro-abortion candidates, who then return the favor.

See how the circle of loot works?

And where are the liberals – the Occupy Wall Street types – who supposedly despise such top-heavy income? They oppose Big Oil, Big Pharma, and Big Finance. But Big Abortion? Not on your life, or rather, not on the lives of innocent little babies.

South by Southwest: Pro-life laws eradicating abortion clinics

There is a mesmerizing time-lapse video at the Abraham Lincoln Museum in Springfield, Illinois, that in four minutes shows the North’s four-year takeover of the South during the Civil War (screen shots above – view a video clip here).

I was reminded of that video when viewing this GIF from Planned Parenthood. Click on the image to launch…

Planned Parenthood 5-1-14-Abortion-Disappearing-In-South-Map

The correlation between slavery and abortion makes it poignant that legal abortion is first being wiped out in the South, although the area also encompasses some of the Southwest, including Texas and Oklahoma….

Headlines: Abortion disappearing in the South

While many different types of pro-life laws are being enacted, such as late-term abortion bans, waiting periods, ultrasound requirements, and parental involvement, those having the greatest impact are what the abortion industry calls “Targeted Regulation of Abortion Provider (TRAP) laws” – abortion clinic regulations and requirements that abortionists have hospital admitting privileges.

The sudden proliferation of “TRAP” laws most certainly can be tied to the discovery in 2010 of late-term abortionist Kermit Gosnell’s House of Horrors and Gosnell’s subsequent conviction in 2013 of first degree murder in the deaths of three abortion surviving infants and involuntary manslaughter of a patient.

Whether the Gosnell case emboldened pro-life politicians, or frightened them into trying to avert the discovery of another Gosnell in their state, it doesn’t matter.

The result is both a physical and political win, physical in that these laws save the lives of children and mothers, and political in that they expose the abortion industry as medically substandard.

The Associated Press describes the toll on the abortion industry in the South/Southwest:

The [admitting privileges] requirements are already in effect in Texas and Tennessee….

If the law there is upheld, Mississippi’s lone abortion clinic would have to close….

After judges allowed Texas’ privileges law to take effect earlier this year, 19 of 33 abortion clinics closed….

In Alabama, operators of three of five abortion clinics testified last week during a trial challenging the law that they use out-of-town doctors who wouldn’t be able to admit patients to local hospitals. They said they’d have to close….

In Louisiana, opponents said the Louisiana law would close three of the state’s five abortion clinics….

Of course, states in many other areas of the country are enacting pro-life legislation, but there is a concentration in the South/Southwest that “could see an entire region of the nation with little or no access to safe abortion,” warns Planned Parenthood.

Legal sure, but “safe,” no. At least one woman a month dies from a legal abortion in the U.S.
