The abortion industry has decided on a public relations strategy of positioning Kermit Gosnell of Philadelphia as an abortionist separate and different from all others, using words such as substandard or illegal.
“All of us are appalled by the substandard illegal practices,” said Vicki Saporta in a May 4 AP story. Saporta, as CEO of the National Abortion Federation, represents hundreds of U.S. abortion clinics. “But to make the leap to say that’s indicative of the state of abortion care throughout the U.S. is absolutely false.”
Leap? California has had many abortionists who have operated like Gosnell – live babies, squalor, illegal activity, dead mothers, thousands of stored baby bodies, live births, and fabulous wealth.
Here are but a few examples of California abortionists who are similar to Gosnell:
Bruce Steir – convicted of manslaughter and sent to jail for the death of young black mother, Sharon Hamptlon, Riverside, 1996.
William Waddell – a nearly full-term baby girl survived an abortion by Dr. Waddell, but
according to the coroner’s report, was killed by manual strangulation. Waddell was charged with murder but was not convicted. Westminster, 1977.
Joseph Durante – in 1981 he aborted Baby Boy Sanchez with concentrated, highly poisonous saline. The nurses delivered Baby Boy Sanchez who was very much alive and they placed him in a bassinet. Later, Dr. Durante came in and without anyone in attendance, he declared the baby dead and had Baby Boy Sanchez sent to the lab for disposal. The district attorney failed to prosecute. Indio, 1980.
Morton Barke – operated Inglewood Womens Hospital, a clinic licensed by the health department just as Gosnell’s place was. After the deaths of at least three women, health department officials came in to inspect, found gross violations and closed the place, 1988. The district attorney failed to prosecute. Barke provided thousands of bodies to Malvin Weisberg who stored the bodies rather than properly disposing of them, many as large as Gosnell’s victims. The district attorney failed to prosecute.
Edward Allred – founder of California’s largest abortion chain, had deaths of four women at his sites in southern California, 1983-1984.
George Flanigan, III – accused of incompetence and negligence in the death of Baby Girl Rodriguez, 2002, criminal conviction for MediCal fraud, Los Angeles area.
Mark Maltzer – of Planned Parenthood- the health department found multiple serious violations at Planned Parenthood at the time of the death of his patient, Diana Lopez in Los Angeles, 2002
Lawrence Reich – was criminally convicted and sent to jail for sexually abusing women during examinations, 2008, Los Angeles area.
Suresh Gandotra – caused the death of Magdalena Rodriguez in 1994 and lost his medical license. San Ysidro.
Andrew Rutland – he caused the death of Ying Chen while attempting to do a second-trimester abortion on her in a dirty acupuncturist office, 2009, San Gabriel.
Lawson Akpulon -a bench warrant is still out for his arrest for raping one of his abortion patients, investigators found rat droppings, blood, rust, and trash at his site. He brandished a loaded firearm.at an investigator. 1996, Los Angeles area.
Planned Parenthood runs clinics that are supposed to be inspected by the department of health, but they usually never get inspected. I’ve seen reports that have findings of shabby conditions at PP sites. Consider the recent disclosure about the Delaware Planned Parenthoods and the shoddy conditions there.
Their strategy of lying can only win if the media fails to investigate.
Enter the Lila Rose brigades.
The media have a vested interest in suppressing any news item that redounds negatively on a “woman’s right to choose” because the media are progressive, liberal, and socialist. Anything that interrupts the smooth slide into totalitarianism must be destroyed. Thank God for alternative media such as the California Catholic Daily!
Let’s add Dr. Gordon Goei to the list. He made some headlines when Los angeles detectives found a 26 week old dead baby in a trash can and discovered that the baby’s mother was bleeding profusely after getting an abortion from Goei who was actually operating without a license!. Goei was performing abortions despite a suspended medical license. He has been charged with performing an illegal abortion and was out on bail. The really sad part is that Goei had a 99-page file with the medical board detailing disciplinary actions dating back to 1979, when he was first placed on probation. He was disciplined again in 1984, 1992, and 1997. Six days before he performed the abortion that led to his arrest, his license was suspended because he failed a competency exam required under probation.
The Los Angeles County District attorney failed to prosecute Goei for murder.
On April 5, 1998 the Los Angeles Times tried to sound the alarm about Gosnell-like abortion mills, but the abortion industry (Planned Parenthood) and health authorities were not interested. To make improvements, to raise standards, would require investment in hiring competent personnel and maintaining sanitary operating conditions. The primary concept of making high profits means that overhead costs must be minimized.
Everyone knows that the abortion clinic operators target minority women, some even hand out “discount” coupons on the streets. The political elite know that ethnic cleansing can be masked as “serving poor women and providing them with access to their rights.”
I fault the medical community for allowing the outrage to continue.
The fault is the bishops, because they see themselves as mice instead of lions.
Abortionists are not part of the “medical community.” They are on the fringe, avoided by actual doctors, often drug addicts and sexually abusive to their “patients.”
The entire community of human persons on this planet must speak out on behalf of the babies and their mothers, treated as just so much meat. Abortion is a travesty every bit as much as slavery and human trafficking.
Per an internet article in LifeNews, our pro-abortion California Senator Barbara Boxer who was reelected with the help of California Catholics was reported yesterday to have opposed a resolution in the Senate calling for hearings on abortion practitioner Kermit Gosnell and abortion.
“During the speech, Boxer said the problems at the Gosnell abortion clinic were really no different than problems at any other medical clinic.”
I myself am not the least surprised that this is ok with Ms. Boxer, but I suppose to the average California Catholic voter this too will be ignored because after all doesn’t her being a Democrat mean that she “cares for the poor”!
Abortion is the blood sacrifice first performed by Cain, that souls such as Boxer revel in.
I consider abortion not as a woman’s “right” but as an abortionist’s “rite,” akin to human sacrifice. Only in this context can you understand the true nature of abortionists—evil savagery.
You got it down, greg; abortion is a ritual human blood sacrifice to the devil.
