Planned Parenthood of Delaware halts abortions, is investigated after rash of 911 calls

Featured on Drudge now…


Planned Parenthood of Delaware has suspended surgical abortions (although not medical) at the two of its three clinics that commit them, in Dover and Wilmington, following a spate of five emergency calls since January 4….


Kudos to for breaking this story, which reported the Delaware Department of Health and the Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline are now investigating.

Two former PP employees, both nurses, are blowing the whistle. Kudos to them as well:

Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, “It was just unsafe. I couldn’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was.”

Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary.

“He didn’t wear gloves,” said Werbrich.

Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, “They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile.”

The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean.

Werbrich said “It’s not washed down, it’s not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it.”

“They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS,” added Vasikonis.

Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.

Vasikonis said, “I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed.”

EricSchaffWho “he” was isn’t named in the story, although ABC reported, “during our investigation… one doctor and two more nurses at the clinic have mysteriously left.”

We do know Planned Parenthood of Delaware’s medical director is – or was – Eric Schaff, pictured right. Schaff is a former chairman of the National Abortion Federation, perfect (HT: JivinJ). Saynsumthn’s Blog found this quote by Schaff:

In 1997, Dr. Schaff was trained by Planned Parenthood of New York City in surgical abortion. “I felt inadequate because I had to rely on other physicians for medication abortion complications. Since I learned these surgical skills, I feel empowered as a clinician because I can provide complete reproductive healthcare.”

As an aside, note Schaff’s admission that he encountered enough complications from RU486 abortions he needed to learn how to commit surgical abortion mop-ups.

Saynsumthn also found this PP of DE ad hawking for medical students – including first year… including foreign…. Desperate much?


BTW, the Wilmington clinic is where a woman assaulted a pro-life grandma when she was filming one of those five ambulance calls on March 13.  When I taped Life Talk a week later, Mark Crutcher interviewed that stalwart pro-lifer.

  1. My my my.

    It seems abortion is getting some bad press lately.

    Please explain how this front alley hack abortionist could get away with “caring” so much about women??

    Come on proaborts. Defend the indefensible.


  2. Since when are a license and sanitary conditions necesary to kill a child.
    Just a formaliity.
    Adam Lanza possessed neither.


  3. Am I the only one who’s expecting a lot of whining about the effect this will have on abortion access? 


  4. I’m amazed and impressed (and incredulous) that Planned Parenthood shut themselves down voluntarily, purely out of professional concern for their own inability to provide safe and adequate care.


  5. Just read this…they are also opening a new planned parenthood on Main Street in Newark DE. MAIN STREET!


  6. Child-killing should only happen in nice, sterile environments. Only a savage would do it on an unclean table.


  7. Its just an assembly line. Get em in suck the baby out. Its been this way. Gotta hurry n make. that money .


  8. You are right JDC, it’s our fault conditions at this Delaware clinic are so bad. If only we would totally ignore them, conditions would improve drastically! Just like water pollution, leave those companies to their own devices and we’ll never have to worry about the environment again!


  9. Why do the moon bats go into hiding whenever an abortion clinic gets bad press? Rachel Maddow you’re a WOMAN …could care less if you’re a lesbian. You of ALL people should be outraged at this war on women. Ahhh but I hear crickets when it comes to this. Excuses and free passes. And all the pro abort men seem to lose their testicles with this as well. Chris Matthews Alan Colmes….A woman’s right to choose. Even morning Joe. These guys remind me of whipped puppies. Someone speak up!


  10. Even morning. Joe sits there and is a yeas man to that smug looking attractive blonde. Idk her name. She resembles Glenn Close. He looks scared to death to disagree with her. And she always has that look on her face like she’s ready to kill someone


  11. So Planned Parenthood stops (only) surgical abortions, only after they have a rash of trouble and are put under pressure. Meanwhile, they just open another clinic. Surprise, surprise.

    So it’s not just those “other” abortion clinics that are not safe and that are unsanitary. Surprise, surprise.

    Not a good day for PP at all. Good!
