MS NOW prez: Pro-lifers the real problem at clinic skirting the law

JacksonRobertsMississippi’s only abortion clinic continued seeing patients Tuesday, the day after a federal judge temporarily stopped the state from closing it.

Several people wearing florescent yellow vests labeled “Clinic Escort” helped women find parking places and walked with them into the cherry pink building in a Jackson retail district. Outside an iron fence that separates Jackson Women’s Health Organization from the street, abortion opponents stood on a sidewalk and implored women not to end their pregnancies.

The last standing abortion clinic in Mississippi, Jackson Women’s Health Organization, pictured above, may be forced to close next month, thanks to a commonsense new law requiring abortionists to have admitting privileges at local hospitals.

Mississippi’s last remaining abortion clinic’s last hope: the courts

  • Live Action begins a four-part series chronicling the Medicaid fraud lawsuit brought against Planned Parenthood of the Heartland by former longtime clinic director Sue Thayer. Thayer was let go after voicing reservations about telemed abortions:

    Charges filed include forcing patients to receive “C-mail” (birth control by mail at their homes and dormitories), prescribing drugs without physician involvement, failure to provide follow-up exams after a patient had been on birth control for at least a year, and falsifying documents in order to get taxpayer monies through various state and federal agencies.

  • Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton (predictably) vetoed another pro-life bill:

    Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday, April 30, vetoed bills requiring doctors to be present when abortion-inducing drugs are administered and creating a health care compact.

    The governor said he vetoed the abortion bill because it’s another attempt to place a regulatory burden on certain health procedures, existing options are safe and it intrudes on federal medicine and medical safety practices.

  • In the Washington Times, Cathy Cleaver Ruse discusses the depths of Representative Jerrold Nadler’s ignorance:

    Mr. Nadler did make one concession at the committee meeting. “On the other hand,” he said, “an 8-month-old fetus or a 9-month-old fetus, in my opinion, is a human being.” Some concession. Can we not in 2012 call even a nearly born infant a human being as a matter of fact rather than opinion?

  • Erin McCann, a student at the University of Maine, provides your typical assertion-filled, argument-free piece opposed to the Genocide Awareness Project.
  • Mississippi’s governor has signed the bill to tighten abortion regulations. Abortion advocates claim the legislation could put the state’s lone abortion clinic out of business since two of their three abortionists don’t have admitting privileges:

    The clinic’s owner, Diane Derzis, said in a telephone interview this month that all her doctors are obstetrician-gynecologists, but only one has admitting privileges at an area hospital. She vowed to fight to remain open.
