Planned Parenthood Abortion Biz Closes in Atlantic City, NJ

Atlantic City Planned Parenthood closes its doors

Triste Brooks, president and CEO of Planned Parenthood of Northern, Central and Southern New Jersey, said the organization ended its lease at 2922 Atlantic Ave. near South Morris Avenue because of safety concerns.

“Planned Parenthood’s top priority is the health and safety of our patients, and due to concerns about the safety of the rented facility that housed our health center, we came to the difficult decision to end our lease,” she wrote in a statement.

It was the only Planned Parenthood health center serving the southeastern part of the state. Its Stockton University location in Galloway Township exclusively serves the school.

Atlantic City patients may use Planned Parenthood’s Camden and Bellmawr sites in Camden County. All patient records are being transferred to the Camden facility in the transition.

Brooks said Planned Parenthood will look to add new health centers to the 25 locations it manages in the state.

Services for men and women include birth control, testing, treatment and vaccines for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, abortion services, cervical cancer screenings, breast exams (not mammograms) and testicular and prostate cancer screenings.

Most of Planned Parenthood’s clients are women, low-income populations and people with insufficient insurance, according to reports.

Babies in the Womb Feel Pain: Please Support A3452/S2026, the NJ Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

twenty week baby

 

There is substantial medical evidence that babies in the womb feel pain at a very early stage of gestation.  Thanks to advances in medicine, babies as young as 20 weeks post-fertilization can survive and thrive with appropriate care and treatment.  Experts in the field of Maternal-Fetal medicine routinely administer pain medication as standard medical practice because they recognize these babies as patients. There have been many instances of babies who survived abortions who were left to die or killed by abortionists.  We have to look no further than the Gosnell case in Pennsylvania.

The Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will protect babies in the womb at 20 weeks and older who are capable of feeling pain and ensure that babies born alive during an abortion will be given the same proper life saving medical care given to premature infants.  Babies in the womb experience excruciating pain during an abortion.  A recent video from a former abortion provider, Dr. Anthony Levatino, explains how these abortions are done in this video  (Warning:  viewing content may be disturbing for some.)

Take Action Now!

We are happy to report that A3452/S2026, the NJ Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act has been introduced in the NJ Legislature.  We thank the sponsors of this bill for recognizing the horrific practices of the abortion industry, who callously and with depraved indifference to human life, brutally and routinely end the lives of innocent babies in the womb and endanger the lives of women.  This bill is modeled after H.R. 36, the Federal bill by the same name. Passing this legislation is part of the 2020 Project, a collaborative effort by pro-life groups in NJ to protect pain capable babies.  For more information on this initiative, please visit www.babiesinthewombfeelpain.com

Please go to the www.njrtl.org Legislation page and Take Action here on this legislation. It’s time we protect babies in the womb capable of feeling pain.

What do medical experts say about whether babies in the womb feel pain?

We are obligated to protect the undefensible,” stated Dr. Colleen A. Malloy, who teaches in the Neonatology division at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. Testifying before the United States Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday, March 15, 2016,  Dr. Malloy said that advances in technology show the “viability” of human life at an earlier age than previously believed.

A child definitely feels pain at 20 weeks, testified Dr. Malloy, and it is certainly “viable.” Because of technological advancements “we have pushed back the gestational age” of when an unborn child “can be resuscitated and resuscitated successfully,” she said.

These children “are moving, reacting, and developing right before our eyes in the neonatal intensive care unit,” she said.

A June 2009 study of over 300,000 babies by the American Medical Association found that, among children aged 20 to 24 weeks post-conception, they had a steadily higher chance of survival with each passing week, ranging from 10 percent at the beginning to 85 percent at the end.

“Given these survival numbers, the NICU commonly cares for infants born in this gestational age range. We can easily witness their humanity, as well as their experiences with pain,” she testified.

The standard of care for NICUs requires attention to and treatment of neonatal pain,” she said. “There is no reason to believe that a born infant will feel pain any differently than that same infant if he or she were still in utero.”

“I could never imagine subjecting my tiny patients to a horrific procedure such as those that involve limb detachment or cardiac injection.”

Dr. Kathi Aultman, a retired gynecologist, said she had performed both first and second trimester abortions, had an abortion herself, and has a cousin who is an abortion survivor.

After performing second-trimester abortions, she recounted how she had to examine the remains of the unborn child and found “perfectly-formed organs.” While she worked in the neonatal intensive care unit by day and in an abortion clinic by night, her conscience began to be troubled by the fact that she was intent on saving babies in the NICU who were the same age as those being aborted in the clinic.

 

8th Video Released. Warning: Some Viewers may find the content disturbing

This video shows Cate Dyer, CEO of Stem Express discussing baby body part procurement with undercover investigators. Dyer calls Planned Parenthood “a volume institution” and admits they handle a number of “intact cases”; i.e., whole bodies of aborted babies, which she says they “have done a lot of.” She also said they “ship those (intact cases) back to our lab in its entirety.” She also admits that contamination is an issue, including yeast contamination. Dyer also calls the problem with bacteria “rampant” and hints that many of the clinics shouldn’t even be in business. Dyer is asked what would make her happy, and she says, “50 livers a week and then goes on to explain “it’s volume for us, we still need more. A lot of volume is what we do.” She also says that they don’t expect to be hitting capacity for the next 10 years. When asked if she felt it was not profitable for abortion clinics to procure the baby body parts, she said “I haven’t seen that.” She also says the lab technicians “freak out” and have “meltdowns” when they see the baby body parts, with some requesting that the hands and feet not be attached. She also admits that this is why a lot of researchers are getting away from using baby body parts and are instead using adult-human sampling. In speaking about neural tissue (i.e., brain tissue), she said it is “insanely fragile” and the “hardest to ship” and admitted that is why they procure and ship the whole calvarium (head). This is the video Stem Express did not want viewers to see and it is no wonder. Please continue to spread the word and educate others about these videos. Thank you.

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.

Graham Introduces Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act

 

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) was joined by pro-life and pro-family leaders today in introducing the Pain Capable Unborn Child Protection Act in the United States Senate.

 

Graham said:

 

“There are only seven countries that allow wholesale abortions at the 20-week period including China and North Korea.  The United States should not be in that club. 

 

“I don’t believe abortion, five months into pregnancy, makes us a better nation.  I look forward to leading this long-overdue effort and pushing for a roll call vote in the Senate.

 

“Today is the start of a journey, much like the one we used to pass the Unborn Victims of Violence Act and the Partial Birth Abortion Ban.  I have no doubt the legislation will one day be passed by Congress and signed into law. 

 

“America is at her best when she’s standing up for the least among us and the sooner we pass this legislation into law, the better.  We are on the right side of history.”

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is based in science, has overwhelming public support, and is necessary to protect unborn children from painful and untimely deaths.

 

  • Companion legislation passed the U.S. House of Representatives in May by a vote of 242-184.

 

 

BACKGROUNDER:

PAIN-CAPABLE UNBORN CHILD PROTECTION ACT

 

At the age of 20 weeks post fertilization, scientific evidence tells us an unborn child can feel pain.  Pain medication is administered directly to the unborn child in second-trimester fetal surgery, in addition to anesthesia.  The unborn child shows physical, chemical, brain and stress responses demonstrating pain at this stage of development.

 

The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act is based in science, has overwhelming public support, and is necessary to protect unborn children from painful and untimely deaths.

 

Summary of Provisions:

 

  • The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act would make it illegal for any person to perform, or attempt to perform, an abortion without first making a determination of the probable post-fertilization age of the unborn child.

 

  • If the post-fertilization age of the unborn child is determined to be 20 weeks or greater, an abortion shall not be performed, unless –

 

    • It is necessary to save the life of the pregnant woman;

 

o   The pregnancy is a result of rape and the woman has received medical treatment or counseling at least 48 hours prior to the abortion; or if she chooses to do so, has made a report to law enforcement; or

 

    • The pregnancy is a result of rape or incest against a minor and the abuse is reported to either social services or law enforcement.

 

  • In the case of the exceptions –

 

    • the abortion may only proceed in a manner that provides the best opportunity for the unborn child to survive unless that would pose a greater risk of death or serious bodily injury to the pregnant woman; and

 

    • the abortion provider must receive informed consent from the pregnant woman, informing her of the child’s age, a description of the law, and the woman’s rights under the law.

 

  • A woman on whom an abortion was performed in violation of this Act may bring a civil action against the abortion provider in court to recover damages.

 

  • The abortion doctors are required to submit annual data to the National Center for Health and Statistics providing statistical information about abortions carried out after 20 weeks post-fertilization age.

 

  • The criminal punishment for a violation of this Act is imprisonment of up to five years, fines, or both.

 

  • The Act makes clear that a woman who receives an illegal abortion in violation of this act may not be prosecuted.
