Pro-life group targets late-term abortionist’s enablers in public awareness campaign

Backdrop, from Created Equal:download

A group of physicians at Wright State University is enabling infamous late-term abortionist and partial-birth abortion pioneer Martin Haskell [pictured right] to keep his abortion facility in Dayton, Ohio open and running.

Ohio law requires all ambulatory surgical facilities to have a written transfer agreement with a nearby hospital. Dayton hospitals refuse to give Haskell such an agreement. However, Haskell has found a way to skirt this law through a contract with the Wright State Physicians Women’s Health Care group.

Thus, Created Equal has launched a public awareness campaign to expose the physicians who are enabling Haskell to stay in business.

The names of the complicit doctors are: Josette D’Amato, Sheela M. Barhan, Janice M. Duke, Michael Galloway, Steven R. Lindhelm, CEO Alan P. MarcoWilliam A. Nahhas, Kathryn Newton, G. Theodore Talbot, and Jerome Yaklic.

On April 21, Created Equal sent letters to the aforementioned doctors before launching its campaign, requesting that they disengage from bolstering Haskell.

None of the doctors responded.

So, on June 3, as promised, Created Equal began publicizing the names of Haskell’s collaborators through a campaign involving postcards and a truth truck.

This postcard, personalized for each physician, is being sent to neighbors of their individual residences. This is a sample of the front and back view…

The truth truck, with the collaborators’ names and photos plastered on it along with photos of abortion victims, is being driven around their their physicians’ group office building, Wright State University, two hospitals affiliated with the group and Haskell (Miami Valley and Good Samaritan), and the Dayton area in general. Below is the mock-up. View photos of the truck in action here.

ANNOUNCING: Pro-lifers to hijack late-term abortion Twitter love fest TODAY

late-term abortionist After Tiller propaganda pieceYou’ve likely heard by now that PBS, a taxpayer-funded public television station, is airing the late-term abortionist propaganda piece After Tiller throughout the month of September.

I’ll write more on that in another post. For now, stop reading me for a minute and read this incredible piece by Matt Walsh on the topic.

Meanwhile, abortion proponents are ecstatic at the prospect of glamorizing a component of what they support which most Americans assuredly don’t.

Most Americans think drawing and quartering fully formed babies whose wanted friends of the same age get super duper special medical care is too creepy for even a horror flick.

In advance of getting a ton of one-sided publicity for the most heinous of the bunch who commit abortions (which is not to say abortions of younger babies are any less heinous, but if most abortionists are even revolted at the prospect of murdering older babies, you know the procedure itself is disgusting on steroids), abortion zealots are having a tweet fest this afternoon to prop PBS against blowback from the likes of us…

Tweet fest to show love to late-term abortionists

So we pro-lifers are going to push back by hijacking this late-term abortionist love fest with our own tweets…

Pro-life tweet fest in response to late-term abortionist love fest

Note the time-frame is open ended. Organizers didn’t want to commit because they didn’t know if we would do exactly what we’re doing. They needed to be able to cut off the convo to save face if we took things over. But typically pro-abortion chats like this usually don’t last longer than 30 minutes, 60 max.

So please help us keep abortion radicals from peacefully promoting the excruciatingly painful blood bath of older preborn infants, never mind the extra danger their mothers face (hello, Jennifer Morbelli, killed last year by After Tiller star LeRoy Carhart), by tweeting about the reality of late-term abortion – there is so much to say about it – beginning at 2p EST. Use their hashtags #AbortionAccess and #AfterTiller.

If you’re not on Twitter, you need to be. It’s yet another form of social media where pro-lifers can make an impact – see above.

Thanks. And please promote this to your friends on Facebook and Twitter.

Planned Parenthood abortionist not happy pro-lifers protesting at his private practice

1275590085Abortionist Emil Felski kills babies at the Planned Parenthood of Greater Orlando clinic.

But Felski also has his own private ob/gyn practice in Casselberry, Florida, where he also covertly commits abortions.

Pro-life activists often pray and protest at Felski’s office, to let his patients and the public know about his side job, and to encourage him to stop murdering babies.

On October 1, Felski was not happy when spotting two pro-lifers holding signs as he came to work (in what looks like a Corvette).

As the video below shows, Felski stopped his car on a 6-lane highway to first snap photos of the pro-lifers and then abscond with the “Repent Dr. Felski!” sign….

YouTube Preview Image

The pro-lifers called police, who came and retrieved the bent sign from Felski. Good for them, the pro-lifers are pressing charges….

Pro-Life Action League posted a piece earlier this week proving one reason these protests are effective.

ChastineRecall the name Cheryl Chastine? When late-term abortionist George Tiller’s Wichita, Kansas, clinic reopened earlier this year, pro-lifers learned she was hired as a circuit rider abortionist. I took part in one of several PLAL protests are Chastine’s (pictured right) Oak Park, Illinois, private practice.

So on September 30, PLAL reported:

When Total Wellness moved to their new location in July, Chastine did not go with them. Clearly, Total Wellness recognized that employing an abortionist – and, as a result, the reality that our regular protests would continue to be regular – was a liability they could not afford….

[O]ur sources in Wichita tell us that Chastine is now the only doctor doing abortions there, and that “business” is slow.  And what’s more, since she lost her family practice position at Total Wellness this summer, it appears she’s not working anywhere in the Chicago area.

chastine-protest-flyerLet this serve as a cautionary tale for other doctors thinking they can get away with “quietly” doing abortions.  Sooner or later, we’ll find out you’re doing abortions, and you’ll be protested, and the “stigma” of abortion will be attached to you.  It will most definitely make your patients uneasy, and you will lose business.

Think about it, Doc: Is it worth it?

Ideally, doctors should refuse to perform abortions because – at the risk of stating the obvious – killing babies is wrong.  But if moral reasons aren’t enough, we’ll settle for a doctor refusing to do abortions out of concern for his own self-interest.

Amen.

On a side note, Felski appeared in the movie, Parenthood….

I’m reminded of Planned Parenthood abortionist Timothy Liveright, who appeared in the movie, Blue Valentine. It would not surprise me in the least to learn Hollywood agents call Planned Parenthood for referrals.

Pro-life blog buzz 5-31-13

by Susie Allen, host of the blog, Pro-Life in TN, and Kelli

We welcome your suggestions for additions to our Top Blogs (see tab on right side of home page)! Email Susie@jillstanek.com.

  • Secular Pro-Life writes that the CEO of Sir Richard’s condom company intends to donate one condom to a developing country for each condom purchased because “if everyone bought our condoms, we could really change the world.” SPL says:

    According to the CDC, while condoms are highly effective at preventing HIV transmission, the typical use failure rate for condoms as a contraceptive is a dismal eighteen percent. People often fail to make that distinction, and therefore do not appreciate the chances of pregnancy as fully as they should. No doubt that misunderstanding will be magnified in a region that has little in the way of healthcare access and sex education.

guttmacher-graph-contraceptives

  • Reflections of a Paralytic shares a Guttmacher graphic (pictured left; click to enlarge) on the “unmet need” for contraceptives in the developing world, which actually shows that women in developing countries do not report lack of access as their primary reason for not using contraception.
  • ProLife NZ has a must-read on the dehumanization infiltrating embryology today. According to Princeton biology professor Lee Silver:

    The term pre-embryo has been embraced wholeheartedly by IVF practitioners for reasons that are political, not scientific. The new term is used to provide the illusion that there is something profoundly different between a six-day-old embryo and a sixteen-day-old embryo. The term is useful in the political arena—where decisions are made about whether to allow early embryo experimentation — as well as in the confines of a doctor’s office where it can be used to allay moral concerns that might be expressed by IVF patients.

MelindaGates_UKFamilyPlanningSummit

  • Down on the Pharm speaks of billionaire Bill Gates’ wife Melinda (pictured right), who is working with the pro-abortion arm of the United Nations at the Women Deliver Conference to raise money (despite her own personal wealth) to bring birth control to the under-developed countries of the world. Her selection of trainers is questionable: infanticide proponent Peter Singer and LeRoy Carhart, whose nurses and clinic (which “has eight pages of failures listed on its last state inspection”) are both substandard.

    LifeNews adds:

    Although Gates, a self-professed Catholic, declared at the London [2012] summit that the [reproductive healthcare] initiative was “not about abortion… not about population control,” her remarks were belied by the lineup of premiere global abortion and population control advocacy agencies in attendance….

  • Priests for Life features Kevin Burke’s blog, which notes the link between child sexual abuse and post-abortive men:

    I encountered a number of men on Rachel’s Vineyard healing programs who had a history of previous abuse and were involved in an abortion decision.

    As they explored that abortion decision they shared a powerful sense that they abandoned their unborn child when they were vulnerable… just as they were hurt when vulnerable and defenseless children. These men felt they allowed their unborn child[ren] to be abused by the abortion procedure.

William_Costello

  • The Passionate Pro-Lifer updates us on Colorado’s tolerance and leniency for serial child rapists like William Costello (pictured left), who was also charged almost a year ago with assaulting an elderly pro-life man who was collecting signatures for a personhood petition. Costello remains out on bail. PPL attended his preliminary hearing on charges that he raped three females – one being a 13-year-old girl, stating, “The details I heard in the preliminary hearing are so graphic they can’t be shared here.”
  • Pro-Life Action League announces the observance of the National Day of Remembrance for Aborted Children on September 14:

    The observance will be marked by simultaneous memorial services in cities from coast to coast at gravesites of aborted babies. This is the first time in the history of legalized abortion that such nationwide memorials will be conducted and thousands of people from across the country are expected to participate.

    Organizers may be needed in your area.

Obama administration’s harassment of pro-lifers gets personal

On July 13 FBI agents Conrad Rodriguez and William Sivley paid a visit to my son-in-law, Andy Moore, at his home.

Andy is a pro-life activist who prays and protests outside the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center abortion mill in Dallas, where late-term abortionist Curtis Boyd freely acknowledges he “kill[s]” children.

Agents Rodriguez and Sivley told Andy three red flags prompted their visit:

  1. His use of a megaphone outside the mill, a one-time event on March 31, which he stopped and never repeated after police told him he was violating a noise ordinance.
  2. A complaint by the clinic manager that Andy trespassed, which he did not. There was no evidence, yet police gave Andy a warning: “I asked the officer multiple times, ‘Why are you giving me this warning, as I did not trespass?’ All he would tell me was, ‘I’m giving you this warning.’ He did not answer my question.”
  3. Unsubstantiated complaints that Andy may be too aggressive. “One of the agents told me it is acceptable to be aggressive, however there is a line. He gave examples of things which would cross the line, such as making threats of violence, or obstructing vehicle access – violations of the FACE act. I told him in no uncertain terms that I had never done anything like this and had not considered anything like this either.”

Obviously, the charges rose to the level of nada to begin with, certainly not above local law enforcement’s pay grade. Thankfully, Andy videotaped his one and only foray into megaphoning, which was clearly tame and polite:

But the FBI used these as an excuse to knock on the door, nerve-wracking to begin with, and followed by asking totally inappropriate questions clearly aimed at intimidating Andy, while also launching into a  fishing expedition about me. Per Andy and my daughter, who was home at the time,  here were questions the agents asked:

  • What affiliations do you have including church groups?
  • How long have you known your wife?
  • What belief system makes you believe in your cause?
  • What is your goal in protesting?
  • Do you know why people would make complaints against you?
  • Are there friends of yours or people you’re connected with that you could confidentially tell us are aggressive or abrasive? “Don’t be afraid to tell us.”
  • Are you involved in activism in Austin, since we noticed some entries on abortionwiki?
  • They were REALLY interested in the connection to Jill Stanek – details of internship, New Zealand speaking tour visit, did you get your activist and pro-life ideas from her? Did she train or teach you? Did you meet Jill before or after you became involved in the movement? Was it Jill who “fired you up” to become so active in the movement?
  • They were overly nice saying he wasn’t in trouble and feel free to tell us anything. Encouraged him to keep going back out there, that they represent both sides. ++they are protecting his freedom of speech++ is what they kept saying.
  • They said their task force that deals with these abortion cases also handles Hate Crimes and White Supremacy. Odd grouping with pro-lifers.
  • They knew he was an immigrant.  They said a felony on his record could/would get him deported. “You wouldn’t want to be apart from your wife and newborn.”

Life Legal Defense Fund, one of the pro-life legal firms that has successfully defended pro-lifers against prosecution by Obama’s Department of Justice, has now taken Andy under its wing. Senior Staff Counsel, Allison Aranda, shared her insights in an email:

The Obama administration is essentially engaging in a witch hunt.  From the moment the new administration took office, the DOJ has been targeting peaceful pro-life sidewalk counselors.  They have come out guns blazing on several occasions often bringing allegations that could later not be substantiated or in some cases clearly proven to be false.  Their weapon of choice – the FACE act.  The DOJ is using tactics that amount to legal extortion.  They have filed these frivolous claims against innocent people who don’t have the finances to hire big shot attorneys.  The DOJ then kindly offers to settle the case if the counselor simply agrees to stay so many yards away and pay a couple thousand dollar fine.

Pro-bono legal foundations like LLDF, Alliance Defending Freedom, and Liberty Counsel have taken a stand to defend these innocent pro-lifers.  Thankfully the sidewalk counselors have either had witnesses or video evidence to defend their actions.  The DOJ has outright dismissed charges in two cases, walking away with egg on their face.  In one case, a federal court judge issued a scathing opinion questioning the motives of the DOJ for bringing such unsubstantiated charges in the first place.  The judge suggested that there might have been a conspiracy between the government and the abortion clinic to violate the free speech rights of the pro-life advocates.

It now seems that the unscrupulous Eric Holder is at it again.  This time when the government determined that the evidence wasn’t quite what they thought it would be to proceed on a FACE claim against Andy, they turned their intimidating interrogation into a fishing expedition about the personal life of Jill Stanek.  Targeted bullying by our government because of an individual’s viewpoint and willingness to share that message in the public square is intolerable.  LLDF is committed to aggressively defending the rights of pro-life advocates.  We will not back down, and we will not be threatened.  We will continue to fight so that the freedoms of all are protected and preserved.

It stands to reason that the Obama administration would be interested in me.  This has probably been a long time coming.  But to reiterate Allison’s point, we will not back down, and we will not be threatened.

Florida Dept. of Health warns infamous late-term abortionist: Pay $120k fine or else

Florida late-term abortionist James Pendergraft’s rap sheet is so long it is hard to believe he is still walking the streets, never mind practicing medicine. It’s only because Pendergraft is an abortionist that he has gotten away with so much for so long. Here’s a thumbnail of his history, via ForeRunner.com

Pendergraft spent time in federal prison in 2001 for extortion and perjury. He has had his license suspended four times for various reasons including performing late-term abortions in an outpatient facility in violation of Florida law….

Last July, Pendergraft was [successfully] sued for $36.7 million for a 2001 incident in which a botched late-term abortion resulted in a live birth. The baby girl who was born alive was left severely handicapped for life.

Many pro-lifers will also remember that Baby Rowan was aborted alive at one of Pendergraft’s mills but consigned to death when clinic workers turned an ambulance (called by his mother) away.

In addition to owning five Florida abortion mills, last year Pendergraft launched a new late-term abortion site  in the Washington, D.C., area, where he kills babies by lethal injection but doesn’t finish the job: He sends the mothers home to deliver their dead babies.

But now it appears an overdue fine of $121,303.21 for a 2010 suspension may finally be Pendergraft’s undoing. On April 20 the Florida Department of Health issued an administrative complaint that concluded:

WHEREFORE, the Petitioner respectfully requests that the Board of Medicine enter an order imposing one or more of the following penalties: permanent revocation or suspension of Respondent’s license, restriction of practice, imposition of an administrative fine, issuance of a reprimand, placement of the Respondent on probation, corrective action, refund of fees billed or collected, remedial education and/or any other relief that the Board deems appropriate.

Stay tuned.

  • The Passionate Pro-Lifer has a revealing piece on infamous late-term Colorado abortionist Warren Hern, who is apparently an environmentalist doing his part to eliminate humanity, which he calls “a malignancy – in the planetary ecosystem.

  • John Smeaton points out African mothers’ desire for real maternal healthcare. Most of the government funding goes toward groups like Ipas for abortion funding, while mothers who choose to give birth do so in substandard conditions.
  • Human Life Matters points out Canada’s seeming disdain for the disabled, as evidenced by the open public discussion of euthanizing disabled children as well as the support for the parents who kill them. Would the same support be shown to parents if they “mercifully killed” their healthy children?

    Wesley J. Smith has thoughts on this topic as well.

  • Reflections of a Paralytic asks, “what is normal?” as it relates to individuals with disabilities:

    Do we not all develop our own sense of “normalcy” based on our individual likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses, abilities and disabilities? Why would children with disabilities, though they may not be the picture of perfect health, be any different?

    In fact, researchers at Newcastle University recently… demonstrated that “disabled children… have the same range of happiness and unhappiness as all children.” As they grow up and develop their sense of self, “they see their disabilities as part as who they are… (and) they perceived their position in life no differently as their friends in the general population.” In other words, yes, children with disabilities will develop their own sense of “normalcy” just like anyone else and they will enjoy their lives immensely… if they’re given the opportunity.

Central character of new HBO drama, “Wichita,” will be a Kansas late-term abortionist

Hollywood Reporter reported October 21:

Alan Ball [pictured right] is switching genres.

The True Blood showrunner is developing Wichita, an hourlong drama about a Kansas surgeon who inadvertently becomes the focal point of a contemporary political, cultural and ethical war.

Ball is set to executive produce the HBO project with writer Devin Friedman, the author behind the 2010 GQ article “Savior vs. Savior” about the late Dr. George Tiller, a Wichita, Kansas, doctor who was one of the few physicians who provided late-term abortions.
