What’s missing in that spin, though, are the stories of many women whose experiences at Planned Parenthood were horrific. In reviews from just a dozen of Planned Parenthood’s 700 clinics, women told stories about filthy conditions, unhygienic practices, unprofessional staff who botched medical procedures, and being forced into unnecessary repeat visits that they felt were part of some medical billing scam. -The Federalist Staff
Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions. Vasikonis said, "I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed." "Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it's needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich." In Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections.
In 1999 a gruesome discovery was made that an IL hospital was shelving babies to die in a soiled utility room who had survived their abortions. The federal Born Alive Infants Protection Act was introduced in 2000 to provide legal protection to all born babies, wanted or not, including the right to medical care. In 2002, Born Alive passed unanimously in the U.S. Senate and by overwhelming voice vote in the House. On August 5, President George W. Bush signed the bill into law.

The IDPH cited the clinic for such violations as storing food items in the same freezer that contained containers of fetal tissue, filthy floors, medication dispensing cups filled with crumbs of medication, recovery rooms with rusted walls, and other filthy conditions.

I can do what I talked about, issue a guidance opinion by March to keep the remaining health centers open. I can do that myself as Governor. That's why I said I'll do that by March to keep the remaining, uh, Norfolk is closed. Fairfax is closed, or closing, so there will be 18 left. Only one of those 18 actually meet the, the requirements so they'll all close if I don't do that. -Democrat gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe on keeping sub-standard abortion clinics open

"Abortion center closes after run of difficulties" lamented a Washington Post headline on the front page of the July 15 edition's Metro section. "New regulations hamper relocation effort," a subheadline for staff writer Tom Jackman's story noted. But deep in his 20-paragraph story, Jackman noted that the Fairfax City, Va., clinic, Nova Women's Healthcare, was sued in late 2011 and that court documents in that suit referred to sick patients "lying down in corridors... and, in some instances, even vomiting." In the 16th paragraph of his story, Jackman admitted that "One filing said witnesses would testify that this was a daily occurrence."

The state is shutting down an abortion provider in Cuyahoga Falls. The Ohio Department of Health recently issued an order to Capital Care Network, 2127 State Road, saying it was revoking the clinic’s Health Care Facility license to operate an outpatient surgical facility.

The state health department did an annual inspection at Capital Care on Feb. 14 and found numerous Ohio Administrative Code violations. The department issued a notice that it planned to revoke the clinic’s license.

In the trial of Kermit Gosnell, horrifying testimony was offered Tuesday from Gosnell’s sister-in-law’s common law husband, James Johnson, who worked as a janitor, maintenance man, and “plumber” at Gosnell's clinic. Johnson testified he had threatened to quit because he would not retrieve babies’ body parts from the toilets where they had been stuffed. Johnson said he would lift the toilet so that someone else could get the babies out of the pipes. Johnson was supposed to collect the body parts, including babies’ arms, from the toilets, which backed up at least once a week. He was supposed to shovel the body parts into bags and then put the bags in a rat-infested basement.

Agents expected to find evidence that it was illegally selling prescription drugs. On entering, they quickly realized something else was amiss. In the grand jury report's telling, "There was blood on the floor. A stench of urine filled the air. A flea-infested cat was wandering through the facility, and there were cat feces on the stairs. Semi-conscious women scheduled for abortions were moaning in the waiting room or the recovery room, where they sat on dirty recliners covered with blood-stained blankets.

A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what's happening behind the closed doors. Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside. Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, "It was just unsafe. I couldn't tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was." Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary. "He didn't wear gloves," said Werbrich. Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, "They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile." The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean. Werbrich said "It's not washed down, it's not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it." "They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS," added Vasikonis.

Detective James Wood was also on the stand today. He talked questioning Gosnell about fetuses found in the clinic's freezer. According to his testimony, Gosnell admitted that 10 to 20-percent of the fetuses found in plastic bags "may have been" over 24.5 weeks old. Gosnell is accused of manipulating the clinic's ultrasound machine to make fetuses look younger than they were. Wood testified that when he questioned Gosnell about that, "Gosnell's face changed, his color changed and he didn't answer the question."

Dr. Emily's abortion clinic in the Bronx, New York, has been formally charged based on complaints filed by Operation Rescue in January related to the illegal dumping of private medical information and aborted baby remains and other infectious waste on a city sidewalk outside the abortion clinic. In addition to the illegal dumping charges, Dr. Emily's abortion clinic lost its accreditation with the Joint Commission for Office Based Surgery, a national organization that boasts on its web site that its accredited organizations reflect quality and meet certain performance standards.

The conditions at the NIWC weren’t just unsanitary, Scheidler said — they were bizarre. Owner Wayne Webster was seen outside wearing a devil costume, and a crucified rubber chicken was hung in a window. “It’s shocking that it had to get this bad for the state to step in,” Scheidler said. “If other clinics in the state are half or even a quarter as bad as Rockford, they too need to be closed down.”
