I recently got my hands on two lawsuits filed this year by former employees against Planned Parenthood Chicago Area and its CEO, Steve Trombley (Pelta v. Planned Parenthood and Chesis v. Planned Parenthood) .
One of those employees, Dr. Murray Pelta, was an abortionist for PP/CA from 1992-2007, its medical director from 1997-2007. The stories he must have to tell, and he indeed tells a couple in his complaint....
Trombley fired Pelta on Feb. 28, 2007, which triggered his complaint. He began by alleging a pharmaceutical quid pro quo....
Dr. Pelta and Trombley maintained a positive personal relationship for several years after Trombley's appointment. Trombley even occasionally asked Dr. Pelta for favors, such as discreet medical prescriptions for Trombley's personal use. Dr. Pelta wrote these prescriptions for Trombley and, in accordance with Trombley's requests, did not record or report the issuance of the prescriptions.
Pelta's complaint did not list the prescriptions dispensed, but the term "personal use" certainly broadens the speculative range.
Pelta listed the following revelation as the reason for his termination, a fitting term:
In January 2007, a pregnant former PP/CA board member and current PP/CA employee asked Dr. Pelta to perform a confidential abortion upon her....

The real story behind Planned Parenthood is explained in the film End Game. It looks at eugenics and its horrible plans.Posted by: Clell at October 31, 2007 7:14 AM
Thanks for the info, Clell.Posted by: heather at October 31, 2007 7:31 AM
first, don't assume every allegation in a lawsuit is completely accurate. Second, I don't see how these allegations, even if true, lead to the conclusion that abortion should be outlawed by the government.
4,000 people get abortions every day, it would surprise me if there weren't a couple of stories each year where someone did something objectionable.Posted by: hal at October 31, 2007 9:45 AM
Hey Hal. I've seen this 4000 a day figure several times before, and I'm wondering exactly where it comes from because according to the Guttmacher Institute, there were 1.29 million abortions in the US in 2002, which to my knowledge is the most recent statistic as far as total abortion numbers in the US goes. This averages out to about 3500 abortions a day. So I think the 4000 a day is a bit inflated, but 3500 is still huge. Of course, I'm by no means accusing you of making up a number; I just wonder if you know where 4000 comes from.Posted by: Bobby Bambino at October 31, 2007 10:00 AM
4,000 was the older daily statistic, as was 4,400 before it.Posted by: Phil at October 31, 2007 10:01 AM
No Bobby, I just picked it up at this site. I have no idea of the real number.Posted by: hal at October 31, 2007 10:03 AM
okay, thanks.Posted by: Bobby Bambino at October 31, 2007 10:12 AM
"... changing dates on ultrasounds so that patients would have to pay a higher price for abortion services...."
If probed further it might be that this could lead to charges of INSURANCE FRAUD against PP depending on who did the paying....
And is this a practice in Chicago only or is this routinely done nationwide? Immoral people doing immoral things -- no surprise here.
Just a thought. hope you or some of your pro-life allies like Mark Crutcher might be able to pursue this.
Bobby, do you see colors in numbers, i.e., do you see the different characters as different in color?
