What you can do at the state level:
Write to the Attorney General and Governor Christie and urge them to investigate and prosecute Planned Parenthood to the fullest extent of the law. Planned Parenthood’s top doctor, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, admitted that Planned Parenthood alters the abortion procedure, turning the baby to a breech position, in order to get the baby body parts intact and fill the orders for the day when needed. This places women’s lives and health at risk, is unethical and in violation of federal laws.

Senator Pennacchio joins NJRTL in denouncing Planned Parenthood’s selling of baby body parts; calls for investigation

Defund Planned Parenthood blue

Pennacchio Calls for Investigation, Legislative Review

Following the release of a video reportedly depicting a Planned Parenthood executive discussing the sale of body parts from aborted fetuses, Senator Joe Pennacchio joined New Jersey Right to Life Executive Director Marie Tasy in denouncing the abhorrent act. Senator Pennacchio also announced efforts to make sure the practice does not occur in New Jersey.

“Selling body parts from an aborted fetus is a sickening shock to the conscious,” said Pennacchio (R-Morris). “If true, Planned Parenthood’s participation in performing abortions to systematically sell body parts from fetuses represents a level of depravity that’s hard to fathom.”

Senator Pennacchio said he is calling for the State Attorney General’s Office to launch an immediate investigation into whether any of the Planned Parenthood facilities in New Jersey took part in the practice. Senator Pennacchio said he is also reviewing current law in New Jersey regarding the donation of human body parts and tissue for medical research to see whether changes are needed to strengthen prohibitions against selling or profiting from harvested body parts from aborted fetuses.

“This video reveals some shocking admissions that have to be fully investigated and that includes looking into the practices of Planned Parenthood facilities in New Jersey,” said Pennacchio. “This simply can not be allowed to happen in New Jersey. If it’s determined that facilities here took part in illegal activity, those responsible must be held accountable. It’s also important that we make sure New Jersey laws adequately address this issue. There should be no circumstance where a facility can get any financial gain from soliciting abortions or harvesting body parts from aborted fetuses.”

“We wholeheartedly support and commend Senator Pennacchio’s efforts to stop this barbaric practice by Planned Parenthood, the nation’s largest and most profit driven abortion provider,” said Tasy. “Additionally, we call on Congress to defund Planned Parenthood as Governor Christie did in New Jersey and urge New Jersey Democratic Leaders to abandon their yearly blind obsessive attempts to use taxpayer money to fund Planned Parenthood in the state budget.”

California Assisted Suicide Bill Stalled in Assembly Health Committee

On July 7, 2015, members of the California Assembly Health Committee pulled the bill after lack of support due to serious concerns about the bill.

Physician Assisted suicide legislation has been introduced in 24 states, To date, none of these bills have passed. A NJ bill (A2270/S382) passed the full Assembly in November of 2014 and was released from the Senate Health Committee on December 15, 2014 without recommendation.  It is still pending a full vote in the NJ Senate.Since January, 2015, physician assisted suicide legislation was defeated in Connecticut, Maryland, Delaware, Colorado, Wyoming, Maine Utah, Rhode Island and Nevada.

Please continue to call, email and meet with your State Senator to urge him/her to Vote No on A2270/S382.  Please also call the Governor 609 292 6000 and urge him to veto this bill if it reaches his desk. Thank you.

NJ AG Investigation Reveals Fraudulent Scheme by Two Disgraced Abortionists

Brigham

 

Please read the story below regarding Steven Brigham, M.D. and his associate, Vikram Kaji, M.D., two disgraced abortionists who, according to a recent complaint, engaged in a “sham transfer” which “constitutes the use or employment of dishonesty, deception, misrepresentation, false promise or false pretense.” The June 16, 2015 complaint issued by the NJ Attorney General also said Kaji “aided and abetted the unlicensed practice of medicine.”

NJRTL had written to the Attorney General a few months ago urging that action be taken against Kaji based on his past reccord once we learned that Brigham supposedly transferred ownership to him. You can read the letter at the link below.

Kaji has a history of sexually abusing his patients and prescribing dangerous controlled substances. His license was revoked by PA and NJ’s Board of Medical Examiners for one year and he was made to surrender his controlled substance license by the Federal Drug Enforcement Agency in 1993 and 1994. Believe it or not, his license was reinstated after he admitted to these charges.

“The June 16, 2015 complaint by the NJ Attorney General calls for the revocation of Kaji’s license, a permanent ban on Kaji acting as Medical Director obtaining any ownershp in any of Brigham’s clinics, imposition of penalities and costs, including investigative costs, attorneys fees, expert fees, ” etc. The June 16, 2015 Complaint is also linked below.

We are very pleased that the NJ Attorney General is looking into this matter and is now taking action to stop these two disgraced abortionists who have a long history of flouting the law and hurting women and young teens in our state.

N.J. Attorney General: abortion doctor unlawfully owns clinics

By Susan K. Livio | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

on July 01, 2015 at 6:53 PM, updated July 01, 2015 at 7:39 PM

TRENTON — An abortion doctor who lost his license over late-term abortions is operating a string of clinics despite assuring the state that he had signed away the practice to his medical director, according to a complaint filed by the Attorney General’s Office.
The allegations are contained in a June 16 complaint accusing Vikram H. Kaji, a 79-year-old obstetrician and gynecologist of fraud for claiming he had assumed ownership of American Women’s Services’ clinics after the Board of Medical Examiners yanked Steven Brigham’s license in October for gross negligence. Brigham has appealed the decision.

The board found that Brigham skirted state law by starting late-term abortions with five women by administering a drug that killed the fetus in his South Jersey office, and ordering them to drive to his Maryland clinic, where the surgical procedure was completed.
Without his license, Brigham was required by state law to divest himself from the American Women’s Services clinics he owned in Elizabeth, Mount Laurel, Paramus, Phillipsburg, Toms River, Woodbridge and Voorhees.

But when an investigator from the Division of Consumer Affairs performed an unannounced inspection at a clinic in Hamilton April 22, Kaji denied he was the owner. During a closed-door hearing of a committee of the board on May 5, Kaji “repeatedly testified under oath that he was not the owner,” according to the complaint filed June 16 by Deputy Attorney General Bindi Merchant.
“He expressly testified that ‘there is no other person around, (Brigham’s) the only one who runs the show,” according to the complaint obtained by NJ Advance Media.

Kaji’s “ownership of American Healthcare Services is a sham transfer and thus constitutes the use or employment of dishonesty, deception, misrepresentation, false promise or false pretense,” according to the complaint, which asked the board to suspend or revoke his medical license.

He “aided and abetted the unlicensed practice of medicine,” according to the complaint.
Consumer Affairs spokesman Neal Buccino said he could not confirm or deny whether the investigation into Kaji has opened a new case against Brigham.

Brigham’s attorney Joseph Gorrell could not be reached for comment. Kaji did not return a call to the Princeton Women’s Services clinic in Hamilton.
Marie Tasy, executive director for New Jersey Right to Life, thanked the Attorney General’s Office for “looking into this matter further, and is glad that action is finally being taken to stop these two disgraced doctors’ and their schemes, which have harmed women in the state of New Jersey.”

Tasy said she hopes the actions revealed in the attorney general’s complaint “puts an end to Brigham’s attempts to practice ever again.”

“It’s pretty frightening this man could get his license back. This is another piece of evidence that shows he continues to flout the law and engage in deceptive practices.”

This is not the first time Kaji has been the target of an investigation.
In 1993, the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine revoked his license for a year after he admitted having sex with a patient in his office in Yardley, Pa. and inappropriately prescribing her steroids and tranquilizers. The patient had been a victim of childhood sexual abuse and was suffering from depression, according to the Pennsylvania order. Two other patients also accused him of sexual abuse but he denied the allegations.

New Jersey also suspended his license for a year over the offenses in Pennsylvania. The record of his New Jersey suspension is not on the state website that lists doctor disciplinary actions, however, because the law only requires online records to go back 10 years, according to the division of Consumer Affairs.

In 1996, Brigham hired Kaji, and in 2010 promoted him to medical director, according to the complaint.
In 2013, New Jersey’s physician disciplinary board required Kaji undergo a neuropsychological examination because of “memory loss/impairment” issues. The evaluation found “mild cognitive impairment” but he was deemed fit to practice.

Christie reversal on why he cut Planned Parenthood funding cuts sparks protest

By Susan K. Livio | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

on June 22, 2015 at 1:52 PM, updated June 23, 2015 at 7:43 AM

TRENTON — Gov. Chris Christie’s boast that he is the only governor in New Jersey history to eliminate state funding for Planned Parenthood may play in conservative states, but it alienates most New Jerseyans who want women to have access to family planning services, protesters said Monday.
Chanting “My health! My life!” about three dozen women and a few men gathered in the Statehouse courtyard with state Senate Majority Leader Loretta Weinberg (D-Bergen) and Pamela Lampitt (D-Camden) to draw attention to the governor’s remarks last week about cutting $7.5 million in 2010 for women’s health centers.
At the time, the governor said the cuts were driven by a budget crisis, adding gynecological services and health screenings could be found at other state-supported facilities. Republicans who supported the money before refused to override the governor’s veto based on the financial considerations.
Christie said in 2010 he eliminated the funds as part of a wide array of cuts to close a budget gap. But in speeches to conservative groups in February and again last week, the Republican governor, who is mulling a bid for president, boasted he had “vetoed Planned Parenthood funding five times out of the New Jersey budget.”
But now that Christie has dropped “the facade” and explained his motive, Weinberg and Lampitt said they would push to reinstate the money in the budget, and call upon their Republican legislative colleagues to vote their conscience.
“Those of you who voted year after year to uphold the governor’s veto because it was a budget issue, you know very well this is not a budget issue,” Weinberg said. “This is New Jersey, a progressive state who cares about our families, who cares about our women, who cares about their health care. it is time to restore this money in the budget.”
Roslyn Rogers Collins, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan New Jersey, said her center serving Essex, Hudson and Passaic counties, have had to do without $1.2 million a year since that funding cut. It forced them to close a clinic in Passaic County last year, she said.
“This is playing politics with people’s lives,” Collins said.
A Planned Parenthood Action Fund of New Jersey reported last month said 1.1 million women in 2013 were in need of contraception services because they did not have coverage or could not otherwise afford it.
Kathleen Fisher, president and CEO of the Family Planning Center of Ocean County said the Affordable Care Act expanded insurance coverage for many, “but it does not totally fix the problem.”
She said 15 percent of women ages 18 and 54 lack health insurance still lacked consistent coverage because they bounce between Medicaid and employer-sponsored plans.
“If we do not adequately fund family planning services and expand Medicaid to cover family planning services we are hurting those among us who are the most vulnerable. It’s time the governor recognize this and get on board,” Fisher said.
“I hope the governor will take a good look at the constituents who stand here today. They come from the north and the south, female and male, from all walks of life,” Lampitt said. “It’s time to look at the real faces of the people of New Jersey and the fact that access to good health care keeps our economy going and keeps our women healthy.”

Marie Tasy, executive director for New Jersey Right to Life, praised the governor and offered harsh words for the legislators who intend to revive the issue.

“This is nothing more than a shameful election year maneuver to use taxpayer money to fund the abortion industry, sadly one of the leadership’s favorite core constituencies. Thankfully, Governor Christie has sided with the hard working taxpayers of New Jersey and rejected these measures,” Tasy said.

Physician Assisted Suicide bill fails in Maine

Despite passage by the House, Senate support falls one vote short.

AUGUSTA – Maine lawmakers have defeated a bill that would have allowed doctors to provide lethal doses of medication to terminally ill patients.

Republican Sen. Roger Katz’s bill died Tuesday because the Senate and House failed to agree on the bill.

Katz and other supporters said that people who don’t have much time left to live should be free to end their life when they are ready. But opponents said lawmakers should focus on expanding access to palliative care. They said they feared it would send the message that the state of Maine condones suicide.
