Secret public records of non-physician abortion project demanded
The following is excerpted from a press release sent out on May 8.
On May 10, the Life Legal Defense Foundation will request in court that essential information related to the non-physician abortion Project sponsored by UCSF/ Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health must be made public.
According to the California Public Records Act, additional project information should be made public. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday, May 10 at 10:00 am in Superior Court, County of Alameda, 201 13th Street, Oakland. Earlier this year, Senator Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) introduced Senate Bill 1338, which if enacted would allow non-physicians to perform abortions after training is provided pursuant to the Health Workforce Pilot Project #171, which is managed by UCSF/ Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health.
$3.5 million for the HWPP program is funded by an undisclosed private foundation and SB 1338 was sponsored by Planned Parenthood Affiliates of California and other pro-abortion organizations.
“Planned Parenthood participates in an abortion project funded by an anonymous donor. It seems like a wolf running free in the chicken coup, but sadly we’re really talking about women’s lives,” said Dana Cody, executive director of the Life Legal Defense Foundation.
“California citizens deserve to know the facts about non-physicians learning how to perform abortions in just 2 to 5 days even though it takes physicians over a month to learn. Even licensed hair stylists get more education time.”
This court hearing is necessary because the UCSF/ Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health refused to disclose the identity of physicians providing the non-physician training and other facts, after a public records request was denied. The purpose of forcing the records to be made public is to determine whether or not the program will provide substandard and risky care by California health standards.

Posted Wednesday, May 09, 2012 7:40 AM By bud Senator Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) the lesbian senator seems to think that a non-physician is good enough for routine abortions. She is nothing but a shill for the industry and probably gets her payback thru lesbian political issues.

Posted Wednesday, May 09, 2012 7:58 AM By Camille Prayers for the successful outcome of this hearing is requested. Planned Parenthood which promotes itself as so caring and passionate about helping women to thrive, is, in truth, perpetrating the diminishing value of women’s lives and health along with the baby resting in the protection of the mother’s body.

Posted Wednesday, May 09, 2012 10:41 AM By Maryanne Leonard Hairdressers undertake a great variety of actions and use a wide variety of chemical products and beautifying procedures in in order to try to make us looked groomed and attractive, for which they are paid and tipped, as their services are generally a positive contribution to our self-esteem, social acceptability, and even to some extent our general happiness. Abortionists should not be paid at all, but rather should be paying each victim of their murderous assaults, or failing that, because their victims are no longer alive, they should be paying restitution to the families of the murder victims, because believe me, they are all affected. Since the vast majority of murderers are previously untrained and inexperienced, yet quite often manage to murder victims with no extension prior education required, murdering babies should be even easier, require even less training, and is almost always 100% effective, needing no second attempts at murder. Therefore, we should not require baby murderers to be trained, just tried on the evidence and sent to death row like any other murderer. One such untrained, back alley baby murderer in fact also happened, in the course of his murdering her child, to murder my 23-year old Norwegian grandmother. Oops. His poor murdering technique left her toddler son motherless, and believe me, it had a powerful, lifelong, negative effect on him. Oops. But the back alley baby murderer was not found, prosecuted, or murdered by the state himself. We went free. Free to go about his business of murdering babies, and sometimes their mothers. Oops. Gee, what is the problem with society letting people become baby murderers without education and experience? They seem to enjoy a terrific success rate without training, sometimes even murdering a few extra mothers along the way. If you support population control, this is the approach to promote.
Posted Wednesday, May 09, 2012 1:14 PM By Life Lady In a way this program is likely going to do a lot of good in terms of turning on the spotlight of what abortion is, and does, to unsuspecting women. When you think about the level of care that this program actually gives, and the kind of record of complications that it generated, this horrific program aimed at providing more abortionists for this bloody industry will highlight the people who supported it as nothing more than money grubbing gouls. The complication rate was something like 80%, which outdistanced the already abysmal rate when physicians perform abortions. When I mentioned that to a pro-choicer they were amazed. We must all be more than willing to speak about this, let everyone know that Ms. Kehoe’s willingness, as a lesbian, to offer substandard care for heterosexual women who are in a vulnerable state, speaks volumes of her true identity as a lesbian fem-bot. Consider the source, and then “out” that source. Unless we speak up and then speak out, no one will know what we are about: saving lives. Whether that life is for the child, or the mother, or both, does it matter? We have to be vocal, and fearless. Let’s get the facts, and then talk them up. We can’t remain quiet. Lives are at stake.
