Planned Parenthoods committing web-cam abortions

In the 2009 movie Up in the Air, George Clooney plays a guy whose job it is to fire people for other people.

One day his company gets the bright idea to fire via web-cam to save travel expenses. But the experiment ends when they learn things can go uncontrollably wrong without the physical presence of a professional in the middle of a crisis.

Surprise, Planned Parenthood of the Heartland, PP's IA affiliate, doesn't care whether things can go bad for mothers aborting their babies, as we know can happen. PP of IA is the 1st in the nation to begin committing telemed abortions. See how, as explained on KCCI News, May 17. Note that abortionist Tom Ross inaccurately refers to the RU-486 abortion as a "miscarriage experience":

Operation Rescue has been on this story for 6 weeks....

On April 22 the IA Board of Medicine notified OR it had opened an investigation against PP. OR maintains PP's practice violates IA abortion law that abortions only be committed by "licensed physicians." According to OR, PP of IA commits telemed abortions at all 16 of its abortion mills 12 of which don't have doctors.

Following are key excerpts from a lengthy May 16 piece in the Des Moines Register:

telemed abortions 1.png

The first-in-the-nation system allows a PP physician from Des Moines to visit with each patient by videoconference, then press a computer button to open a drawer in front of the patient, who could be seated up to 190 miles away. The patient then reaches into the drawer and withdraws the abortion pills.

The system is drawing interest from other abortion providers around the country....

Abortion opponents have filed a formal complaint with the IA Board of Medicine....

Dr. Tom Ross, a PP physician who uses the system, said he fulfills his legal obligation to oversee the abortion process.

"I do. Yes, sir. Absolutely," he said. He's confident the state medical board will approve of the system, which private lawyers vetted....

About 1,500 Iowa patients have used PP of the Heartland's videoconferencing system to obtain abortion drugs in the past 2 years....

The FDA says it has 8 reports of women dying of infections after taking the pills, but it says there is no proof the pills caused the infections. PP officials say they have cut down on the chances of infection by giving antibiotics, changing the way the 2nd drug is administered, and urging patients to call immediately if they have complications, including fever....

Pro-abort feminists appear fine with virtual abortionists, which also means pregnant and post-abortive mothers will virtually be without care if and when they have complications.

Personally, I'd be concerned about an outfit dispensing abortion meds that can't even spell "dispensing" correctly. (See still shots left.)

And for all the talk of bringing abortion to pregnant mothers in the hinterlands, here's the real reason, according to the Des Moines Register:

Ross said he and other abortion rights supporters hoped more physicians would offer the abortion medications once federal regulators approved them in 2000. But few physicians want to wade into the controversial practice, Ross said, which is why PP is using the videoconferencing system....

And now I see they've corrected this.

Both the Des Moines Register as well as KCCI attempted to paint this as ingenious and innovative. And MADE NO mention of any possible negative outcomes.

Even the most pro-choice people in the world ought to acknowledge that abortion is not exactly an easy or unsubstantial procedure no matter how you do it. This seems like a throwback to the days before supposedly "safe" abortions, when women took various concoctions and had abortions in their homes. Are pro-choicers going to pretend now that abortion is so "not a big deal" that you don't even need to bother to have a doctor?

If a woman does have a complication where is she supposed to seek medical attention?

Will Dr. Ross be willing to Skype if a complication occurs at 2am?

Will they be dispensing anti-biotics through thier telemed system if needed?

Will they have a spectrum, a hand mirror and a lamp in the drawer that will be used by the woman to self inspect by direction via video to check
her uterus for complications?

How crazy.

"But few physicians want to wade into the controversial practice, Ross said, which is why PP is using the videoconferencing system...."

In a risk-averse medical environment, that's called a clue. I hope women are paying attention.

Actually, this is rather brilliant.

Obamacare has passed, which means that at some point we are going to pay more for lower quality of care and longer waits. Consider PP's experiment the wave of the future.

As with other socialized medicine schemes, there just won't be enough docs to go around. Enter the tele-doctor.

I get furious anytime I hear about these "medical" abortions. We adopted a baby from foster care that was a failed "medical" abortion....Methotrexate. Our baby was poisoned and has numerous lifelong issues due to this failed abortion. I wonder how safe my daughter will think it is as she grows up? The doctors didn't keep her safe, God did.

"Note that abortionist Tom Ross inaccurately refers to the RU-486 abortion as a "miscarriage experience":"

Where did he receive his medical training??
An induced abortion is not spontaneous by definition, therefore a medically induced abortion is NOT a "miscarriage experience" by any means.

I agree with you. I think the serious nature of abortion is lost on Planned Parenthood.

Posted by: Janet at May 19, 2010 9:48 PM

Oh Marauder and Janet I don't think the serious nature is lost on PP, it just doesn't matter to them because they hear the ring of the cash register "Caaching", not the cries and pain of the women in their abortuaries. PP lies to you.

Posted by: Prolifer L at May 20, 2010 8:28 AM

I meant to add and the cries and pain of women at home aborting their babies as well. Sorry I didn't complete my thought.Just adding my thoughts, not meant to be critical of your post fellow prolifers.

With more women now choosing the pill over in-clinic abortions...

That's a misleading statement by KCCI. Are women really choosing? Planned Parenthood maximizes profits by employing fewer doctors and dispensing more regimens of RU-486, yet charges the same price to mothers for the abortion. So if a mother wants a surgical killing, Planned Parenthood tells her RU-486 is her only option.

Now with telabortions, one doctor under PP's employ can work every PP in a single state.

Killing innocent children has never been so efficient...and lucrative.

So many people are so deceived!

This mother and her father don't realize they've bought a pack of lies and are unwittingly just cogs in satan's child-killing, mother/father-wounding death machine.

And one day, they will have to give an account of their actions to the One Who gave them a child/grandchild to nurture at least until birth.

They might have killed the precious little boy or girl God intended for a special couple unable to conceive children themselves.

Lord, have mercy.

Whatever happened to the patient-doctor relationship?

This is now a patient-monitor hookup...

"miscarriage experience" ?

"Here ye, Here ye. Come one and all. Now you too can join other satisfied female customers and experience your very own miscarriage. You don't want to miss out on the miscarriage experience!

Grab that cash with both hands
And make a stash
