Mothers/Babies Maimed and Killed in Planned Parenthood Clinics STOPP International |
(Stop Planned Parenthood), in a June 24, 2003 news release titled "Mother of Three Killed by Planned Parenthood Abortion," had this to say: "Diana Lopez is dead as a direct result of another botched abortion at a Planned Parenthood (PPFA) clinic. According to the report released by the California Department of Health Services last week, this PPFA clinic was cited for no less than six serious health code deficiencies that led to this death," said Ed Szymkowiak, national director of STOPP International, a project of American Life League. It's amazing, in light of this latest revelation and their lack of openness about the medical standards of their clinics, that Planned Parenthood continues to claim with a straight face that they are even remotely interested in a woman's health and well-being.
"Sadly, heinous acts of medical malpractice—including the death of patients—are nothing new at Planned Parenthood," stated Szymkowiak. "In 2001, a San Francisco court decision awarded over $650,000 in damages to a Yugoslav immigrant whose pre-born child suffered the loss of two limbs during a botched abortion at Planned Parenthood. That same year, Planned Parenthood agreed to pay a New York woman $1 million because it had repeatedly insisted she did not have breast cancer when she did. And in 2000, a Missouri woman went into a coma after a doctor at a Planned Parenthood clinic apparently placed an oxygen tube in her stomach instead of her lungs."

Citizen reports that, according to Business Week, the Buffett Foundation also made a five-year, $20 million commitment to International Projects Assistance Services the principal manufacturer of suction pumps used in abortions.
The Pampered Chef, a company that employs a number of pro-life stay-at-home moms as sales consultants, was recently purchased by Berkshire Hathaway, prompting several of them to resign rather than contribute to Warren Buffett's profit taking. http://www.family.org/cforum/citizenmag/features/a0026236.html.
Mr. Pryor is pro-life and pulls no punches. He is honest and unafraid. He is secure in the truth that all human life is sacred from conception. Here are some of his statements regarding abortion:
Will his candor lead to another filibuster by the Democrats? That remains to be seen. He pointed out that he is able to put aside personal beliefs and follow the law, even when he strongly disagrees with it. Reportedly, his record proves this to be true. No matter how it turns out, Attorney General Pryor is a breath of fresh air. He has our admiration and respect for his honesty and forthrightness.
While the Lawrence chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) called the opinion an attack on abortion providers, Kansans for Life, the state's largest pro-life group said, "Obviously, any organization or any individual who harbors pedophiles and conceals the sexual abuse of children, deserves to be prosecuted."
Last year, 88 of the 11,844 abortions reported in Kansas, or 0.8 percent, were performed on girls 14 or younger, according to the Department of Health and Environment. Mr. Kline said that a girl under 16 who is pregnant is either a victim of rape, indecent liberties with a child, or unlawful voluntary sexual relations, all felonies.
Messengers in Phoenix voted June 18, 2003 to "lament and renounce statements and actions by previous Conventions and previous denominational leadership that offered support to the abortion culture" by embracing a resolution "on thirty years of Roe v. Wade."
"It's never too late to say you're sorry," agreed Richard Land, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the SBC's moral concerns arm. "We needed to express our sorrow and our grief over the fact that for a time our convention was officially, through its resolution process, on the wrong side of this issue," he explained in an interview. The resolution asserts the 1973 decision ushered in a new and frightful era of "assaults on human life," such as human cloning and human embryonic cell research.
"The Southern Baptist Convention is now overwhelmingly on the right side of the issue," Land said confidently. The 2003 resolution is on target in saying Roe v. Wade unleashed an "act of injustice against innocent unborn children as well as against vulnerable women in crisis pregnancy situations," he said. (Baptist Press, 6/19/03)
