Protect the mother, the unborn and the public

On Feb. 20, 2013, it was discovered during the inspection of Associates and OB/Gyn Care in Baltimore that 38-year-old Maria Santiago died during an abortion, according to Troy Newman of Operation Rescue.

She was in the 13th week of her pregnancy. She slept through her abortion, and the doctor-abortionist Iris Dominy terminated the pregnancy and left her with an unqualified worker who completed the paperwork.

By the time she got help, the patient wasn’t breathing. No CPR was done. The doctor did a sternal rub. No one was CPR-certified including the physician. He had no emergency medical equipment, meaning no crash cart. This was a blatant case of negligence.

Newman said the Maryland Board of Physicians issued a reprimand only. The laxity toward the care of this mother reflects any lack of concern for the mother’s life and, obviously, for the baby, who was aborted.

According to Americans United for Life, Leroy Carhart, a late-term Maryland abortionist, was not disciplined at all for the death of 33-year-old Jennifer Moribelli for lack of emergency care. He walked off the job and left her to die. Her family took her and she died after that.

Is this the way of the abortion industry, no real discipline or regulation, or safety? What does this say about the value of women?

Planned Parenthood intends to lower the bar by bringing in laws that allow non-physicians to perform abortions, stating it will “press forward with such a pro-active legislative agenda around the country.”

We as taxpayers continue to fund the nation’s largest abortion chain. Planned Parenthood received $540.6 million in the most recent year, equal to $1.5 million a day, from taxpayers, with a posted profit of $58 million.

According to Martin Fox of Pro-Life Alliance, Tonya Reaves, a 24-year-old with a young son, died at their Chicago clinic from an abortion where she bled to death.

According to LifeNews.com, ABC News reported that two nurses testified before the Delaware legislature that they left a Planned Parenthood clinic in that state due to “meat-market style assembly-line abortions.”

The Planned Parenthood officials never addressed these issues when notified. Where does it stop? The federal Health and Human Services mandate, that’s where it stops.

Concerned Women for America’s legislative action committee said that even the religious, the Little Sisters of the Poor, are being told by president Barack Obama that they must approve contraceptive abortifacients, annihilating all conscience rights and freedom to practice one’s religion.

According to Tony Perkins of the Family Resource Council, House Resolution 7, the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,” would assure that we are not complicit with the abortion industry.

This year it is again being brought to the House. Last year it failed. It is our hope to protect innocent, unborn life. It behooves us to assist our legislators and encourage them to protect its citizens, its most vulnerable — the unborn and their mothers.

    I’d like to pose a theoretical scenario to Cal Thomas.

    If a medical specialist said, “Cal, you’ve got a serious physical problem. Do nothing and you’ll die soon. Follow my prescription, which involves certain life-style changes, and there’s a good probability you’ll live, even if your life may be a bit more constrained than now.”
