OUTRAGE! Mean Republicans trying to defend unborn babies by telling the truth about partial birth abortion

Apparently the procedure is OK with Liberals. Butchering a baby is OK, but describing what actually happens during this “medical procedure”? GRISLY! Unbelievable, the act is not grisly, but describing it is? Moral retardation on display

The Bloomberg headline was shocking: “Grisly Language Propels Kansas Anti-Abortion Bill as U.S. Model.”

Bloomberg journalist Esme E. Deprez was tasked with informing readers about the Unborn Child Protection from Dismemberment Act, which last month was introduced in both Kansas and Oklahoma. The writing experience obviously wasn’t pleasant for her. The story began:

Activists in Kansas and Oklahoma are seeking to outlaw a common abortion technique by using the text of legislative bills to lay bare its graphic details, a tactic that may spread across the U.S.

Republican lawmakers in both states are pushing to ban what they call “dismemberment abortion” with language supplied by National Right to Life, a Washington-based advocacy group. Opponents say the bills inaccurately describe what medical literature calls dilation and evacuation, a method used in 96 percent of second-trimester terminations, according to the National Abortion Federation….

The aim is to rebrand a medical procedure with a new and unsettling name, include clinical details of what it entails in a bill and let lawmakers’ reactions guide the way they vote.

The Moral Retardadtion if Abortion and Feminism

Sick, sick, sick

In a stunningly evil and disgusting article, a feminist only willing to identify herself as “Lana” has described her decision to abort her child, based solely on the fact that he was a boy.

Lana begins her article by explaining that “the patriarchy has been well entrenched since the dawn of time,” and continues by writing about an argument she had with a man on an airplane, while she was pregnant, to summarize what she deemed “extreme patriarchy.”

The description of the argument is straight forward: Lana was flying to San Francisco to participate in an Occupy Wall Street rally. When the person sitting next to her found out about it, he swore at her, to which Lana responded by screaming at the top of her lungs “ASSAULT.”

After “contemplating” lying to the flight attendants and telling them that the man struck her, Lana decided to tell the truth. The flight attendants told her that they couldn’t force the man to move in response. And in response to that, Lana decided that she “could no longer depend on men to be an ally of the cause.”

The “cause,” in her mind, is feminism. Soon after, she went to the doctor and was told that she was pregnant with a boy. Her immediate response, she writes, was “my body had betrayed me even worse than the misogynistic suit jockey on the airplane so many months before. I was in shock, I started crying, weeping at the thought of what I was about to curse the world with.”

Over the course of several days, she decided that she could not bring another male into this world. She explains, “I couldn’t bring another monster into the world. We already have enough enemies as it is.

“I knew what I had to do,” she adds.

Lana writes that she has no regrets for what she did and was “happy” that she did something “positive,” explaining, “It went off without a hitch. My body’s betrayal was no more, I was free, and for the first time since the airplane incident, I felt strong. I had done something positive, something that would actually make a difference, something good, even though as I would find out, many others wouldn’t see it that way.”

This is the naked face of the barbarism of radical Feminism, and of abortion on demand. I cannot even fathom having a child killed because of their gender, But, whoever wrote this is obviously a psychopath, after all, no normal human being would celebrate such horror.

Melissa Harris-Perry, a special kind of stupid

I do not think Harris-Perry is a mean woman, she seems to have a genuine sweetness to her. Having said that, I must say she is what I call sincerely stupid. That is, she actually has no clue, as this illustrates

The outrageous comments were made during a discussion with Julian McPhilips, a civil rights attorney who “represents the rights of the unborn as a guardian ad litem in Alabama court because of a state law (HB 494) that allows juveniles who don’t have parental permission to petition the court for an abortion.”

Here’s what Harris-Perry had to say:

“But I want to ask one final question though: Are you at all distressed in the ways that I am about the idea that there is a separate interest between an individual and something that is happening in her body that cannot at that moment exist outside of her body? So, the idea, for example, that I would need a court’s permission for cancer treatment or the court’s permission for a surgery that would remove my hand. Like, if it’s my body, I guess I can’t understand why the state would have to give me permission.”

Good Freaking Grief. The folks that make up the pro “choice” rhetoric know they are lying, they are evil, but not stupid. Harris-Perry, though, is not evil she is just stupid enough to drink the Kool-Aid that evil people serve up.

Obama Regime Forced To Pay $570,000 To Pro-Life Legal Group Over Abortion Pill Mandate

Obama Admin Forced To Pay $570,000 To Company It Tried To Force To Obey HHS Mandate – Life News

.

.
The bill is coming due, literally, for the Obama administration over its attempts to force companies to comply with the HHS mandate, that compels them to pay for drugs for their employees that can cause abortions.

The pro-life legal group ADF obtained a settlement in federal court Friday that requires the Obama administration to pay an agreed-upon amount of $570,000 to ADF and allied attorneys who won a lawsuit at the U.S. Supreme Court against the abortion-pill mandate in Conestoga Wood Specialties v. Burwell.

Conestoga Wood is one of the companies that challenged the abortion mandate in court and the high court eventually sided with them and Hobby Lobby, the most prominent firm taking on the Obama mandate.

“The government does a serious disservice to taxpayers when it pursues unjust laws that force many of them to defend their constitutionally protected freedoms,” Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman told LifeNews.com. “While this case is finally over, many others remain. We hope the administration will stop defending its indefensible abortion-pill mandate and end its waste of taxpayer dollars on a fruitless quest to force people to give up their freedom to live and work according to their beliefs.”

Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys represent Conestoga Wood Specialties and the Hahn family, Mennonite cabinetmakers in Pennsylvania who appealed to the nation’s high court after a divided federal appellate court ruled against them. The Supreme Court eventually sided with the company.

“The cost of religious freedom for the Hahn family and many other job creators across the country who face this mandate is severe,” added Senior Legal Counsel Matt Bowman. “A family should not face massive fines and lawsuits just because they want to earn a living consistent with their faith.”

The mandate could have cost the family nearly $3 million per month in fines if it doesn’t agree to live contrary to its Christian convictions. It forces employers, regardless of their religious or moral convictions, to provide insurance coverage for abortion-inducing drugs, sterilization, and contraception under threat of heavy penalties by the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies if the mandate’s requirements aren’t met.

Conestoga Wood Specialties owners Norman Hahn, Elizabeth Hahn, Norman Lemar Hahn, Anthony H. Hahn, and Kevin Hahn desire to run their company, a wholesale manufacturer of custom wood cabinet parts, in a manner that reflects their Christian beliefs, including their belief that God requires respect for the sanctity of human life.

Hundreds Of Thousands March For Life In Washington D.C. (Videos)

‘The Largest Human Rights March In The World’: Hundreds Of Thousands Join DC March For Life – LifeSite News

.

.
The 42nd annual March for Life kicked off Thursday with an hour-long rally on the National Mall in Washington, DC, as hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists gathered beneath sunny skies and surprisingly warm temperatures to hear speeches from pro-life politicians and prominent movement leaders.

The rally opened with a benediction from Roman Catholic Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, KY, who was flanked by both Catholic and Orthodox clerics as he led the crowd in prayer and asked God’s blessing on the March.

After the benediction, March for Life Chairman Patrick Kelly took the podium to welcome the marchers, taking special notice of their overwhelming youth. “When I look out on this enormous crowd, I see a tide turning in America,” Kelly said. “The March for Life is getting bigger and younger every year.”

“History is on our side,” said Kelly, “because history is always on the side of those who fight for human dignity and human life.” He said that after four decades, the March for Life “has become the largest human rights march in the world.”

March for Life President Jeanne Monahan Mancini elicited happy cheers from the crowd as she took the stage and asked, “What do y’all think about this weather?” Thursday’s mild conditions stood in marked contrast to the weather during last year’s march, which took place in near-zero temperatures with biting winds, putting marchers at risk of frostbite and causing electronics to fail due to the extreme cold.

“I’m so grateful” for all the pilgrims who traveled from around the country and around the world to join the march, Mancini said. She explained that this year’s theme, “Every Life is a Gift,” refers especially to babies with prenatal diagnoses of potentially disabling conditions like Down Syndrome who are aborted at a much higher rate than the general population.

“1.1 million babies per year, or one-fifth of babies in America are aborted every year. For babies with poor prenatal diagnosis, the abortion rate jumps to 85 percent,” Mancini said. “That’s just wrong, isn’t it?”

“The truth of the matter is that every life is a gift, regardless of if we have a disability or not… and let’s be honest – we all have disabilities,” she said. “Some of them are more obvious than others, but none of us are perfect.”

Echoing a theme that has been present at many events related to the march, Mancini highlighted the importance of social media, and urged the crowd to take out their cellphones and subscribe to the March for Life text service on the spot by texting GIVELIFE to 99000. “Social media is a huge part of getting the pro-life message out,” Mancini said. She asked the marchers to take photos throughout today’s events and “let the world know” about the March for Life and all the issues involved by posting them to social media with the hashtag #whywemarch.

“Speaking of social media,” Mancini added, “Apparently [Pope Francis] likes the March for Life!” She shared a tweet the Roman Catholic pontiff posted earlier in the day which read: “Every life is a gift. #MarchForLife,” and urged the crowd to reply to him with their thanks.

Mancini then introduced a number of politicians who took a quick break from debating a bill to bar taxpayer funds for abortion to show their appreciation for the pro-life marchers. Rep. Kathy McMorris-Rogers, R-WA, started things off. McMorris-Rogers heads the House Down Syndrome caucus and is herself the proud mother of a seven-year-old son named Cole who has Down Syndrome. “That extra chromosome has brought my family a whole bunch of joy,” McMorris-Rogers said. “Cole has reminded me anew of the value of every human life.”

“I’m proud to be a pro-life leader and a pro-life mom,” McMorris-Rogers said, to cheers. “Later on today in the House of Representatives, we will be passing the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. We are holding the federal government accountable to protect your taxpayer dollars from funding abortion.” Any taxpayer subsidies for abortion providers, she added, are “a violation of the public trust.”

McMorris-Rogers promised that despite the GOP leadership’s eleventh-hour decision to refrain from voting on the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, which would ban most abortions after 20 weeks, she and her pro-life colleagues are committed to its passage, along with the passage of a healthcare conscience rights act. “The Unborn Child Protection Act is so important because it shifts the debate” over abortion, and makes sure that people know the pain that unborn children feel is “very real and very wrong,” said McMorris-Rogers.

Senator Tim Scott, R-SC, told McMorris-Rogers, “The Senate will stand shoulder to shoulder with the House as you move forward legislation that protects life.” Taking on the tone and volume of a Southern preacher, Scott told the crowd that it was his conversion to Christianity that first made him realize the value of all human life. He then shared the story of how, while he was a small business owner, one of his employees became unexpectedly pregnant. “I did what I thought would be the right thing and took her to a Crisis Pregnancy Center,” Scott said. He said the love and guidance she was shown there inspired her to forego the abortion she’d planned on and have her daughter.

Chris Smith, R-NJ, co-chairman of the House Pro-Life Caucus, told the crowd: “We have a compelling duty to protect the weakest and the most vulnerable from the violence of abortion.” He admonished those who recommend abortion for babies with defects or disabilities.

“A prenatal diagnosis of disability should mean empathy, concern for the child and love,” Smith said, “not a death sentence.”

He praised the crowd of mostly millennials for their enthusiasm and called them “the next Greatest Generation.” He told them that the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act would be voted on “within an hour or so.”

“That legislation is historic,” Smith said. “It will end our forced complicity, our funding of abortion.” He said President Barack Obama lied when he said his federal healthcare plan wouldn’t require taxpayer support for abortions. “We will not quit until we take abortion out of ObamaCare and make the Hyde Amendment permanent,” Smith pledged. He also vowed to do everything possible to ensure the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is brought up in the House for a vote, lamenting that babies who die during late-term abortions endure “agony beyond our wildest belief.”

Dan Lipinski, D-IL, was distinctive as the only Democratic elected official to take the stage. “I’m from Chicago, I’m a Bears fan, I’m a Democrat, and I’m pro-life,” Lipinski said, to wild applause. Lipinski said that the defense of human life is an issue that people of all political and religious persuasions should be able to agree on. “Everyone needs to come together to protect life,” Lipinski said. “Women deserve better than abortion.”

Supreme Knight Carl Anderson, head of the Knights of Columbus, reminded the crowd that the unborn are not the only ones whose lives hang in the balance with the rise of the Culture of Death. “This year we face a lot of new threats,” Anderson said, citing in particular doctor-assisted suicide, which several states have taken moves toward legalizing. “We will stand up for those at the end of life just as we have for those at the beginning of life,” Anderson promised. As for abortion, Anderson said the momentum is on the side of protecting life. “According to the latest Knights of Columbus/Marist poll, 84 percent of Americans want significant restrictions on abortion,” Anderson said, “two-thirds of Americans say the nation’s abortion rate is too high, and a majority of Americans believe abortion is immoral.”

“No amount of propaganda can cover up or change the pain that women who have undergone abortions feel every day,” Anderson added. He concluded by announcing the Knights’ plan to provide ultrasound machines to Crisis Pregnancy Centers. “Almost every woman who sees her child in an ultrasounds chooses life,” he said.

Mancini then introduced Kathleen Wilson, who operates Mary’s Shelter, a chain of maternity homes in Fredericksburg, Virginia, who was received with deafening cheers by the audience. “I’m proud to represent the nearly 400 maternity homes in this nation,” Wilson said. “We exist to help women in desperate need. Women who have low self esteem, who have lost hope.”

Wilson said that many women who seek help from maternity homes have boyfriends or family members who are trying to force them to abort. She shared the story of one woman, Angela, who became pregnant via a horrific rape. Her friends and family urged her to get rid of the baby via abortion, but she had the baby with the help of Mary’s Shelter, and her child has brought her “absolute joy.” Wilson said Angela often asks, “If not for Mary’s Shelter, what would I have done?” She said that many women who come to the shelter cry after the birth, not because they are sad about the baby, but because they are thinking about what might have been, and realizing that the people in their lives didn’t want their precious children to be born.

Dr. Gracie Christie, a radiologist who specializes in ultrasound, said her favorite part of the job is working with expectant parents. “I get to be there for that awesome moment when a mother and father see their baby for the first time,” Christie said. “Ultrasound opens a window into the womb to see that moment when we are very tiny, but very much human and very much alive.”

But Christie said that ultrasound also has a dark side: We can now see telltale signs of defects that lead parents to abort. “This is the world we are living in: Children are choices, commodities, and those that are deemed defective are eradicated before birth,” Christie said. She said that when she sees signs of Down Syndrome on the ultrasound screen, she feels sick, because she knows that ninety percent of them will be killed by abortion. Of disabled children, Christie said: “They have a heart made for joy, a soul to cherish, and a right to simply exist.”

After Christie’s somber speech, the mood turned more lighthearted as the focus shifted to the march’s younger attendees. The crowd cheered as March for Life organizers announced the winners of the annual student contest, themed “Every Selfie has a Story.” They then introduced this year’s march leaders, the entire student body and faculty of Shanley High School in Fargo, ND. The entire school – 400 people in total, filled eight buses and drove 24 hours straight to carry the banner at the front of the march. Senior Julia Johnson said, “As a school, we are humbled and honored to have been selected to hold the banner for this year’s March for Life.”

“Our cause in defending life is a noble one,” Johnson told the crowd in a brief speech, showing poise and passion that belied her age. “We are living in a modern-day holocaust… that takes the lives of 3,000 babies each day, more than one million babies each year.”

Said Johnson, “It is our job to protect our brothers and sisters in the womb and their right to life. It is our obligation to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves, for value is not determined by size or age.”

“We are willing to fight for [life in the womb],” Johnson said. “We march to stop an injustice that has taken the lives of a third of our generation. This pro-life movement was not born out of hatred for our neighbors, but of love.”

Nancy Cruzer, Chicago regional director of Silent No More, shared an emotional story of being 5.5 months pregnant and informed that her baby had hydrocephalus, or “water on the brain.” Her doctor advised an abortion, and she complied.

“At the abortion clinic, no one asked how I was or explained what was happening,” Cruzer said. “I left the clinic with no body to bury, no grave, no funeral… No one brought meals, sent cards, no one called, because I was too ashamed to tell anyone what I had done.”

For years, Cruzer thought she had put the abortion behind her, but she was plagued by horrible nightmares. Finally, she became a Christian and joined a Bible Study for post-abortive women. She found peace, and the nightmares stopped. She named her baby Melanie. “I deeply regret my abortion and that is why I am silent no more,” Cruzer said.

In keeping with the theme of “Every Life is a Gift,” Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life of America, then took the stage to recount the story of her son Gunner’s diagnosis with cystic fibrosis.

“In the last 6 years, my life has changed dramatically by Gunner’s entry into the world,” Hawkins said. She and her husband now make significant financial sacrifices to provide his costly medications, and they had to leave family and friends behind to move closer to his special doctors, but Hawkins said, “It’s worth it.” Now, she is pregnant with her fourth child and first daughter, Gracie. While she prays that Gracie will be healthy, she says she knows that if she has cystic fibrosis, she will have a big brother to help her through it and a family who loves her unconditionally.

Hawkins said she knows from experience how hard it is to raise a disabled child, and how intense the pressure can be to have a perfect baby. “But abortion and IVF don’t make these babies more perfect,” said Hawkins, “they destroy them.”

Hawkins concluded her speech with a question: Do you believe we will end abortion in this generation? Thousands of young marchers screamed, “Yes!”

“It is time to act like it,” Hawkins said, and led the crowd in a chant: “We are the pro-life generation!”

Millionaire Abortionist Busted For Raping Patients, Dumping Aborted Babies’ Bodies

Abortionist Arrested: Accused Of Raping His Patients, Dumping Aborted Babies Bodies – Life News

Oklahoma abortionist Nareshkumar Gandalal “Naresh” Patel, who once faced charges of raping and sodomizing his abortion patients, has been arrested.

Police raided the Outpatient Services for Women abortion center in Oklahoma City and arrested Patel. The arrest came after a Operation Rescue filed a five-count complaint against him with the State Attorney General’s office, the Oklahoma Health Department, and the Oklahoma Medical Board.

The complaints were based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a publicly-accessible trash receptacle near Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic in Oklahoma City. The material was received by Operation Rescue from an anonymous source on March 18, 2013.

As one Oklahoma-based news source indicates, “Patel, 62, is accused of obtaining money by false pretenses, authorities said.” But the abortion practitioner’s problems are much more pervasive.

.

.
Patel is an abortionist with a long and particularly horrific history of Medical Board disciplinary actions, malpractice claims, and criminal cases. Nevertheless, financial documents found amid the medical records and waste indicate that Patel owns $39.4 million in real estate. His personal income exceeds $1.4 million annually. His net worth is listed at $28 million.

“We are very excited about this morning’s arrest. This is the result of a collaborative effort that involved gritty pro-life work, active enforcement of state laws,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “We also want to especially thank AUL for their contributions to efforts to bring Patel to justice.”

“It’s appalling that Patel has lined his pockets by taking innocent life while flouting the law and cutting corners on women’s health,” said Newman. “Frankly, it’s despicable.”

Calls to Patel’s abortion facility this morning informed callers that no one is available to take calls.

Board discipline

In 1990, Patel was disciplined by the Oklahoma Medical Board for Unprofessional Conduct for “failing to maintain dispensing records for dangerous drugs and keep complete and accurate records of purchase and dispensing of controlled drugs.”

Records show he was also disciplined for botching an abortion in 1989. Medical Board documents state that Patel “did perform a surgical procedure on patient E.S.B., and said procedure was performed in an unprofessional manner and unprofessional setting.”

Unfortunately, Patel appealed to the Oklahoma Supreme Court, which struck the botched abortion charge from Patel’s record, allowing only the charge of failing to maintain proper drug records to stand.

In 1992, the State of Ohio issued a reprimand of Patel based on Oklahoma’s actions.

History of dumping aborted baby remains

In 1993, Patel admitted that he dumped the remains of nearly 60 babies that had been aborted at his clinic in a field near Shawnee, Kansas, and had attempted to burn them but only the plastic bags around the remains caught on fire. The bodies were discovered by two passers-by. Patel’s excuse that he could not find a service to take away the remains lacked credibility. Because at that time there were no laws in Oklahoma regarding the disposal of aborted baby remains, Patel was never charged.

.

.
Rape and sodomy charges

In 1993, Patel was charged with one count of “forcible oral sodomy” and one count of sexual battery after a patient alleged that he had sexually assaulted her on an examination table prior to an abortion. She then recorded two phone conversations with him in which she alleged that he asked if she was angry about the assault and apologized for it.

Three victims came forward and told of their encounters with Patel.

First patient’s testimony

The first victim described how after her abortion, Patel came to the recovery room where she was recuperating. She alleged that “he then started using his penis to rub my hand.” She moved her hand away but told Patel she was cold, so he had her moved to a chair in his office where she dozed.

“When I woke up, I felt like two hands in my mouth trying to open it wide. Then I felt another sensation in my mouth,” she said.

When asked what was causing the sensation in her mouth she replied, “Dr. Patel’s penis.”

When she turned her face away, the victim, “saw him discharge some white substance coming out. And he rushed to the bathroom.”

Second patient’s testimony

The second women to come forward alleged that after she was drugged, she was taken to an examination room and put on a table. She said she heard him unzip his pants and saw him pull them down.

“I felt Dr. Patel enter my rectum with his penis,” she said in response to questioning. She indicated that when he finished sodomizing her, he completed her abortion. When she began to come to afterwards, she told the court, “His penis was in my mouth.”

Once fully awake from the sedation, the victim said she was in “severe pain” and bleeding heavily. It was later that she discovered, “I had a tampon in my vagina, and I had a tampon in my rectum.”

Third patient’s testimony

The third patient to make allegations came forward after hearing news reports about Patel and allegations of sexual abuse made by another woman. She noted that she was injected with an unknown drug, after which claimed Paten began to fondle her breasts. While on the examination table, she said, “I heard the zipper of his pants, and he started moving back and forth. And I felt the pressure inside of me.” In response to questioning she indicated that the sensation was in her vagina.

After having his way with her, Patel allegedly called a nurse into the room and completed an abortion on the woman.

Patel was somehow acquitted by the jury that heard this graphic testimony.

“Again and again, Patel has slipped away without consequences. If he really did what the women say, it is an atrocity that he got away with it. What is more disturbing is that Patel continues to be in a position where further abuse of this nature can occur,” said Newman. “People who are sexual deviants just don’t change overnight.”

But that was far from then end of allegations against Patel.

Employee obtains protective order

In 2003, one of his employees sought and received a protective order after she told the court that Patel became angry over a difficult patient took it out on her. She said Patel “pushed me hard” in front of patients and other employees. Upset, she took refuge in the women’s restroom until Patel allegedly burst in without knocking. According to court records, she said she felt “harassed” and told Patel she did not want to work at his clinic anymore.

Malpractice

Patel has also escaped relatively unscathed from a long list of malpractice cases filed over the years he has been in practice.

A judge ordered Patel to pay $240,000 in damages to a 15-year-old girl left permanently injured following an attempted abortion in June 1989.

According to a news article published in April, 1992:

The medical assistant who witnessed the 1989 abortion attempt on the 15-year-old girl, described how she saw Patel “pull out some tissue and take it in his hands. ” Then the woman testified she heard Patel say, “‘That’s her small intestine,’ and he put it all inside…” The doctor then told his assistant to call an ambulance and the girl was rushed to Oklahoma Memorial Hospital. She later underwent emergency surgery for a perforated uterus, where a male fetus was found floating in blood inside her abdominal cavity.

In another malpractice suit, one patient alleged that Patel ignored her medical history of having a previous Cesarean Section delivery and went ahead with a second trimester abortion, during which he seriously injured her. While she lay bleeding profusely, Patel delayed calling for emergency help until one of the patient’s friends intervened and insisted that he do so. She was forced to undergo emergency surgery to save her life. That case was dismissed by the court.

Another malpractice case was filed by a patient who underwent an abortion by Patel only to find out later she was 20 weeks pregnant. That suit was also dismissed.

Agreement with University of Oklahoma

Despite Patel’s frightful history, the University of Oklahoma entered into an agreement with Patel and Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic on February 5, 2013, to provide training services to UO students.

In fact, so cozy is the relationship between Patel and OU that Don H. Garret, M.D., President of the University of Oklahoma School of Medicine, personally invited Patel to attend the Alumni Association’s Annual Awards Dinner, which was held last May.

“In light of the new investigation into Patel’s abortion operation, we call on the University of Oklahoma to end their agreement with Patel and any other abortionists with which it might be affiliated,” said Newman. “The last thing we need is medical school students being trained by an apparent quack like Patel.”

Privacy rights trashed

After analyzing the material from Patel’s abortion clinic trash receptacle, Operation Rescue determined that violations had occurred and filed the appropriate complaints.

Operation Rescue submitted copies of dozens of documents from Patel and Outpatient Services for Women that included original patient consent forms, signed procedure logs, appointment calendars, financial information, and competed abortion forms, all containing patient names, contact information, and other identifying data.

“Abortion clinics claim to be concerned about patient privacy, yet we have found that abortion clinics are among the most negligent when it comes to disposing of detailed patient information,” said Troy Newman, president of Operation Rescue. “Women who get abortions should pretty much expect their contact information, medical records, and financial information to end up where it can be easily accessed by the public, thanks to shoddy abortion clinic practices.”

.

.
discovered among the cache of documents received by Operation Rescue were numerous original Individual Abortion Forms. Oklahoma requires that abortion clinics report each abortion that is done. The presence of the completed forms in the trash indicate that these abortions may not have been reported and that further investigation is required.

Failing to report abortions within 30 days of the abortion is a crime in Oklahoma punishable with a $500 fine per report.

Bloody refuse

Operation Rescue submitted photos to the authorities that showed several large bloody sticks of laminaria dilators that had been improperly discarded along with other bloody refuse from what appeared to be a second trimester abortion. Also discarded with the bloody trash was a blood-stained broken tenaculum, which is a scissor-like grasping instrument.

The discarded laminaria and broken tenaculum both fall within Oklahoma Administrative Code 252:515-23 that prohibits “the improper disposal of regulated medical waste, including untreated sharps and items contaminated with blood or other human body fluids.”

Sensitive employment information

Operation Rescue also found two employment applications that had been recently submitted. The applications contained sensitive private information about job applicants including the height, weight, and date of birth for one individual.

Both state and federal laws and administrative code require certain minimum retention schedules and disposal protocols for employment records, none of which were observed by Patel or his clinic staff.

.

.
24-hour informed consent violations

Perhaps the most serious of allegations brought by Operation Rescue is that Patel’s staff failed to observe the 24-hour voluntary and informed consent laws.

One of Operation Rescue’s investigators place a call to Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women posing as a woman seeking an abortion. The receptionist at the abortion clinic gave the caller a faulty web address for the “Women’s Right to Know” website. The caller was told to read the website then call back for an appointment. About 30 minutes later, Operation Rescue’s investigator called Patel’s abortion clinic back and scheduled an appointment for a 17-week abortion on the following day.

The caller was not given the name of the physician who would perform the abortion, the medical risks associated with the second-trimester procedure, or other information required by Oklahoma Statute 63 § 1-738.2, nor was the information provided during a consultation in with the Operation Rescue investigator was able to ask questions of the physician.

However, the caller was given detailed information about the clinics limited payment options. This included an emphasis on the fact that the fee for a 17-week abortion started at $1,450, but would likely cost more, and that there would be a 4% surcharge if a credit card was used instead of cash.

Failure to comply with the provisions of the 24-hour informed consent law are serious and are subject to civil contempt, hefty fines, and the suspension or revocation of their medical license.

OR calls for license revocation and clinic closure

“While certainly the results of our investigation don’t compare in severity to the rape and sodomy charges he has faced in the past, they do show that in spite of all the legal problems Patel has been through over the years, he still displays a pattern of disregard for the law and a lack of respect for the rights of his patients,” said Newman.

Operation Rescue received notification earlier this week that an investigation has been initiated into the allegations.

“We hope that Patel’s medical license will be revoked and his clinic permanently closed. If nothing else, the public should be aware of Patel sordid past and proclivity to ignore the law. We hope that by filing these complaints and making his record known that women will be spared the trauma and tragedy experienced by so many of Patel’s patients,” said Newman.
