Three Louisiana abortion clinics cited for failure to report child rape

Jill Stanek

Three of Louisiana’s seven abortion clinics have been cited by the Louisiana Department of Health and Hospitals for failure to report suspected child rape.

The LDHH complaints against Causeway Medical Clinic, Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge, and Gentilly Medical Clinic for Women (now shut down) were revealed in court documents filed June 15 by LDHH, the Louisiana Attorney General, the Louisiana Department of Justice, and Alliance Defense Fund to dismiss a 3rd* lawsuit waged by 5 Louisiana abortion mills challenging Act 490, a law passed in June 2010 to enhance abortion clinic health and safety regulations with a “zero tolerance policy” for certain infractions.

Two of those clinics were among those reprimanded by LDHH for failing to report suspected child rape to authorities, as mandated by law.

Causeway Medical Clinic

LDHH investigators paid an unannounced visit to Causeway earlier this year, issuing its report on May 23.  Four medical records reviewed revealed minor girls ages 14-15 were given abortions with no report filed with the state.

Incredibly, unnamed Causeway “Administrator S1″ admitted “there was no policy in the facility regarding mandatory reporting of abuse of minors as it relates to carnal knowledge, incest, or rape. S1 further indicated it had not been the practice at the facility to obtain the sexual history of minors regarding the age of the father of the unborn children to determine if reporting would be required as per Louisiana Law.”

So this abortion mill has NEVER reported ANY suspected child rapes to Louisiana authorities.

Other findings at Causeway:

  • One of the “Physician[s],” a term I always use loosely when speaking of abortionists, “had restrictions on his medical license that did not allow him to perform deliveries.” So this guy has committed such gross malpractice in the past that Louisiana authorities have banned him from delivering patients.
  • Patient confidentiality was lax: Aborting mothers had to sign in with first and last names that others could see.
  • Ack: The vaginal ultrasound probe was not cleaned properly between uses.


Delta Clinic of Baton Rouge

LDHH investigators paid an unannounced visit to Causeway earlier this year, issuing its report on February 8. While Delta had a policy on hand to report suspected minor sexual abuse, one medical record reviewed revealed the boyfriend of a 15-yr-old patient was 18. He had committed statutory rape, but a report was never filed.

This facility also failed to ensure notarized parental consents were received for minor aborting patients, also in violation of Louisiana law.

Gentilly Medical Clinic for Women

Gentilly, a particular blight on the New Orleans community, was shut down May 26 under Louisiana’s new, aforementioned “zero tolerance” law for “significant health and safety risks to clients.”

A May 6 LDHH report gave more insight why.

Paramount was “there was no policy in the facility regarding mandatory reporting of abuse of minors…. [Administrator] S1 indicated she would assume that the patient would automatically tell the physician if they had been raped. S1 indicated it had not been the practice of the facility to notify the police when age differences between the patient and the father of the unborn child revealed Misdemeanor or Felony Carnal Knowledge. S1 indicated she had not been aware of this law.”

So here was another abortion mill that had NEVER reported suspected child sexual abuse.

Other infractions found:

  • Contrary to Louisiana law mandating a 24-hr waiting period before abortions, several patient records reviewed showed late-term abortions – including minors – were initiated the same day as the consent was signed by insertion of laminaria into the mother’s cervix.
  • No licensed nurse on staff.
  • No current fire marshal inspection.
  • No recovery period: Patients were released as soon as their abortions were finished. “S1 confirmed these sedated patients had not been observed in the Recovery Room post procedure…. [T]he patients did not spend any time in Recovery Room.” Furthermore, “Observations… revealed the entrance to Gentilly… to be a spiral staircase leading to the clinic located on the second floor of the building” with “no elevator,” and there was “no documented evidence of the patient’s mode of transportation or the responsible party to whom the patient was discharged.” Most patients were given 5 milligrams of Valium by mouth and 25 milligrams of Demerol by injection before their abortions.

Why are abortion mills persistently and perpetually found to neglect their patients, subjecting them to significant health and safety risks?

* The 1st federal lawsuit filed by the 5 abortion mills was dismissed because it was filed in the wrong district; the 2nd was dismissed for lack of “ripeness” – no real case yet because there was no reasonable fear of LDHH moving against the Plaintiffs’ licenses, which these LDHH complaints corroborate.

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.
