Planned Parenthood Dr. Caught Breaking Ban on Partial Birth Abortions: “Laws are Up to Interpretation”

As we post this article, the U.S. Senate is deliberating over a repeal of Obamacare which will defund Planned Parenthood for one year.  NJ’s two U.S. Senators Cory Booker and Robert Menendez shamefully support using our tax dollars to fund this disgraceful organization and appeared with Planned Parenthood militants at a protest just yesterday in Washington, D.C. to advocate on their behalf.
Here in NJ, we have state legislators who continue to criticize Governor Christie for ensuring that no taxpayer money goes to Planned Parenthood. In fact, we now have 5 Republican Assembly members who have vowed to defy the Governor’s actions and force NJ taxpayers to fund Planned Parenthood. View the article here

The entire NJ Legislature is up for election on November 7th.  Please take note of how your State Senator and two Assembly members vote on this issue.  We will post the vote tallies on this website.   Any lawmaker who supports this organization also supports Planned Parenthood’s illegal activity and should be voted out of office.

Planned Parenthood Doctor Caught Breaking Ban on Partial-Birth Abortions: “Laws are Up to Interpretation”

Never-before-released undercover video shows Dr. Suzie Prabhakaran, the Vice President of Medical Affairs for Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida, graphically discussing Planned Parenthood’s late-term “dismemberment” and partial-birth abortion protocols in the context of fetal body part harvesting.

The new video comes as the U.S. Senate is debating provisions to terminate taxpayer subsidies to Planned Parenthood, the nation’s biggest abortion business.

At a Planned Parenthood conference evening reception, Center for Medical Policy investigators posing as buyers from a biotech company discuss partnering with Dr. Prabhakaran’s Planned Parenthood affiliate in order to harvest fetal organs and tissues from the 2nd-trimester abortions performed there. Prabhakaran advises that her affiliate is merging with the Orlando Planned Parenthood, which does abortions up to 23 weeks and has a high procedure volume, with eighteen abortions at 18-weeks and above scheduled for the next week.

Prabhakaran discusses how Planned Parenthood allows their abortion doctors to certify compliance with the federal Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, which prohibits abortions in which a fetus is extracted alive up to certain anatomical landmarks (18 U.S.C. 1531). According to Prabhakaran, Planned Parenthood abortion doctors can certify compliance with the law by using a feticide like digoxin to kill the fetus before the abortion, or they can simply “document” their “intent” to do a “dismemberment” abortion where the fetus is pulled apart with forceps rather than extracted intact.

“So some people train to just document that like, you know to comply with the Partial-Birth Abortion Ban, you basically have to say, ‘I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure,’” explains Prabhakaran. “So every time you do a procedure, that’s how you document. So, like, there’s like a checkbox,” Prabhakaran states, “so it would be before the procedure, you do your evaluation, you write, ‘I intend to utilize dismemberment techniques for this procedure.’”

Prabhakaran indicates she never uses digoxin to kill the fetus before the abortion, and relies entirely on the “checkbox” to “document” her intent in the abortion to certify compliance with the federal law: “I’m not doing digoxin, and we’re just going to document and there’s never been a problem.”

Prabhakaran’s description of Planned Parenthood’s loose protocols for 2nd-trimester abortion procedures corroborates statements by Dr. Deborah Nucatola, Senior Director of Medical Services for Planned Parenthood Federation of America, in CMP’s first undercover video, that show a lax attitude toward the partial-birth abortion law:

“The Federal [Partial-Birth] Abortion Ban is a law, and laws are up to interpretation. So there are some people who interpret it as it’s intent. So if I say on Day 1 I do not intend to do this, what ultimately happens doesn’t matter.”

Nucatola states in the first video that Planned Parenthood abortion doctors can make changes to the abortion technique in order to bring the fetus out intact for body parts harvesting, regardless of any initial “intent” statement: “So if you do it starting from a breech [feet-first] presentation, there’s dilation that happens as the case goes on, and often, the last step, you can evacuate an intact calvarium [head] at the end.”

CMP project lead David Daleiden notes, “Planned Parenthood medical directors and abortion doctors feign compliance with the federal partial-birth abortion law on paper, knowing full well that ‘what ultimately happens doesn’t matter’ so long as no one is scrutinizing what they actually do to women and children in the operating room. And the fact that Planned Parenthood has a ‘dismemberment’ ‘checkbox’ on their abortion forms should tell the public and policymakers everything they need to know about this barbaric abortion business. The Department of Justice should open an immediate investigation into Planned Parenthood’s late-term abortion practices, and the U.S. Congress must stop forcing taxpayers to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s brutal abortion empire.”

Breaking: President Trump tells Planned Parenthood: No Tax $ if you continue to do abortions

 

The White House, concerned about the possible political repercussions of the Republican effort to defund Planned Parenthood, has proposed preserving federal payments to the group if it discontinues providing abortions.

The proposal, which was never made formally, has been rejected as an impossibility by officials at Planned Parenthood, which receives about $500 million annually in federal funding. That money helps pay for women’s health services the organization provides, not for abortion services.

“Let’s be clear, federal funds already do not pay for abortions,” Dawn Laguens, the executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America, said on Monday. “Offering money to Planned Parenthood to abandon our patients and our values is not a deal that we will ever accept. Providing critical health care services for millions of American women is nonnegotiable.”

But the outreach to allies of Planned Parenthood is a glimpse of the internal struggle inside a White House torn between trying to satisfy the conservative base that elected President Trump and responding to the views of his older daughter, Ivanka Trump, who urged her father to tread carefully on the Planned Parenthood issue during the Republican primary contest.

Mr. Trump’s older daughter has no formal role in the administration, but as an informal adviser she has made women’s issues a specific focus. She has had a mixed record of success in the administration’s early days, but during the campaign, she was able to nudge Mr. Trump toward a nuanced view of Planned Parenthood’s work.

Mr. Trump confirmed the discussions in a statement on Monday to The New York Times.

“As I said throughout the campaign, I am pro-life and I am deeply committed to investing in women’s health and plan to significantly increase federal funding in support of nonabortion services such as cancer screenings,” he said. “Polling shows the majority of Americans oppose public funding for abortion, even those who identify as pro-choice. There is an opportunity for organizations to continue the important work they do in support of women’s health, while not providing abortion services.”

In private discussions with people close to Planned Parenthood, White House officials have at times suggested that there could even be an increase in federal earmarks if the work related to abortion ends.

At various points during the presidential campaign, Mr. Trump spoke favorably of the work of Planned Parenthood, even while saying he would support withdrawing its funding if abortions continued.

Planned Parenthood denies women ultrasounds to see their babies – they only use it to perform abortions

See it all unfold in the latest undercover video: https://www.facebook.com/liveaction/videos/10154939319673728/

An ultrasound is one of the first encounters a mother has with her baby. She can see her child's heart beat, and monitor her baby's development and health — but Planned Parenthood uses ultrasounds for a very different reason…

Trump revives funding ban to groups promoting abortion overseas

If there was any doubt about President Donald Trump’s stance on abortion, he settled it Monday by using an executive order to bar U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote the procedure overseas.

The decision to reinstate the Republican policy known as the “Mexico City policy,” or the “global gag rule,” was delivered a day after the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and two days after the Women’s March on Washington and similar events across the country drew crowds to rally for reproductive rights, among other issues. During the presidential campaign, Trump vowed to appoint “pro-life” Supreme Court justices. He said that if the Roe decision is overturned, the question of whether abortion is legal would go back to individual states.

The Mexico City policy has been instituted by every Republican president since Ronald Reagan and rescinded by Democratic presidents. It prohibits NGOs that receive federal funding — including health care providers or organizations — from providing or promoting abortion or from advocating for abortion laws abroad.

The policy was issued by executive order, just as it has been done by past Republican presidents, often within days of taking office. It comes on the heels of a sweeping order Trump signed Friday evening encouraging federal agencies to dismantle large parts of Obamacare.

Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) said Trump’s move puts “ideological politics over women and families’ futures,”adding she would introduce bipartisan legislation to reverse the policy.

Abortion-right s group NARAL immediately issued a statement Monday condemning Trump’s move. “It’s telling that one of Trump’s first executive actions combines two of his favorite things: silencing anyone who disagrees with him and repressing women,” the group said. “With this action, Donald Trump has turned his anti-women rhetoric into policy, and made it more difficult for women and families all over the world to access vital reproductive care. He really is living up to the lowest of expectations.”

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.

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.
