Notorious Rockford Abortion Mill License Suspended Indefinitely By The State Of Illinois!

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-30-2011 – by James – The Northern Illinois Women’s Center abortion mill in Rockford that is nationally known for the signs of racism and bigotry it has displayed and for the unsanitary conditions inside had its licenses indefinitely suspended by the Illinois Department of Public Health.

 
 
According to the suspension notice released by the Illinois Department of Public Health on September 30, 2011, “the department had found conditions at the facility that are a direct threat to the public interest, health, safety and welfare requiring immediate, emergency action.”
 
Rockford area pro-life activists have known of the horrific conditions inside of this clinic for years.  Now even the state of Illinois has recognized the dangerous conditions inside this clinic as a "direct threat to public health, safety, and welfare."
 
We don’t know how long this abortion mill will be closed but we do know that finally the women and children of Rockford will have some protection from an abortion mill that is known for its dangerous conditions and celebrating abortion as some kind of demonic victory over God.
 
Below are listed some of the frightening violations documented by the State of Illinois about Rockford’s abortion mill in a June 2011 report;
 
The Northern Illinois Women’s Center did NOT meet the requirement of a sanitary facility.
 
It was determined "that 3 of 3 operating rooms inspected failed to ensure a sanitary environment."
 
NIWC failed to prevent potential contamination of clean equipment.
 
Gynecological cannula’s were stained with a "brown substance!"  (Cannulas are surgical instruments inserted directly inside a mother.)
 
Shoes were stored inside an open box of surgical gloves.
 
Operating room #1 contained a box of opened surgical gloves stained with a dried brown substance.
The equipment used to sterilize medical instruments, called an autoclave, failed biological testing on at least two occasions!  (An autoclave is an instrument used to sterilize equipment and supplies by subjecting them to high pressure, saturated steam at 121 °C for about 15–20 minutes, depending on the size of the load and the contents.)  The autoclave should be tested weekly - they went for 4 months between testing and then failed.  That means that at some time prior to testing, the autoclave stopped sterilizing.  If it had been tested weekly, then only a few patients would have been exposed to contaminated instruments before the failure was noted.  By going so long, they exposed countless women to potential disease.  If the instruments were used twice a week, then possibly 32 women were endangered (16 weeks times twice a week) with EACH instrument pack. 
 
NIWC failed to meet the requirement that a qualified Registered Nurse be present in the operating room.  This dangerous and illegal situation went on for well over three years.
 
NIWC did not have an RN in the operating room for over three years.  It didn’t even have one on the payroll.  There was no "director of nurses" to oversee care. Unqualified and unlicensed personal were doing the work of a professional nurse.
 
NIWC failed to document who was accompanying a patient when leaving the facility post-surgical procedure.  It is possible that women were left to care for themselves after surgery.
 
Numerous instances of failing to meet state requirements in record keeping.
 
Failure to ensure physical exams was documented.  NIWC also failed to ensure development and review of policies and procedures.
 
From "brown substances" on surgical equipment and gloves, to not having a qualified nursing staff, to equipment used to sterilize surgical instruments not working properly, this report is an indictment of the very dangerous and disgusting conditions that have existed inside the Rockford abortion mill for a long time.
We have seen racism, bigotry, and grotesque hatred for God and human life displayed in the windows of this clinic building for years.  It seems this place is as careless, unprofessional, alarming, and dangerous on the inside as it is on the outside. 
 
A local nurse who read the report from the Illinois Dept of Public Health said, "Yet, even with all these violations and without a registered nurse in their employ, they were open for business the very next day.  What does it take for the IDPH to shut this place down?  Do women really deserve this quality of medical care?" 
Illinois Department Of Public Health reveals Northern Illinois Women’s Center is apparently as filthy on the inside as it is on the outside.
 
The June 2011 report from the Illinois Department of Public Health Division of Health Standards documented numerous disturbing and possibly dangerous violations inside of the Rockford abortion mill.  These pictures taken last fall show the deplorable and repulsive conditions of the outside of the Rockford abortion mill building.

Empty Parking Lot and Empty Windows At Rockford's Abortion Mill Means No Children Killed And Bigotry Silenced Again In Rockford

Rockford, IL – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-30-2011 – by Rockford Life Initiative - On Friday September 30, 2011 the Rockford abortion mill was closed tight again for the third time in two weeks as clinic workers work feverishly to try and bring this notorious abortion mill up to standards.

The clinic parking-lot was empty except for three cars, all belonging to clinic workers.  The windows that abortion mill landlord and security guard Wayne Webster has filled with signs of perversion and bigotry and used for decades to display images of hatred for God, Christians, and human life again were empty as this child killing center has caught the public attention and more than just pro-lifers have seen the depths of depravity this mill has displayed for years.

 

Because of the hard work and prayers of many pro-life Christians in Rockford an estimated 20 lives may have been saved in the last few weeks because this abortion has had to close for at least three days.

 

Starting on Wednesday October 5, The Northern Illinois Women’s Center will be back to killing babies on their regular days of Wednesday and Friday morning between 7:00am – 10:00.  Please join us in prayer at 1400 Broadway.  As we have seen so clearly, our prayers and presence are used by God to save lives and souls in Rockford.

 

 

Video Reveals Rockford Abortion Mill Sent Bodies To Be Burned Just As In Nazi Camps

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-29-2011 – by Rockford Life Initiative – A second video shot at Rockford’s abortion mill in 1990 has been posted on YouTube.   In this video we see a truck and driver who came to the Northern Illinois Women’s Center to haul away six boxes containing the bodies of children killed by abortion inside the abortuary.

The similarities between what the Nazis did to human beings and what the abortion industry continues to do to babies in the womb have always been clearly seen by people who value all human life.  That doesn’t make it any less shocking to see the actual truck that hauls the lifeless bodies of these children to the ovens.

We may ask ourselves, "How can people do this to children?" This video contains that answer.

We hear some of the most disgusting and sickening words ever uttered used by the abortion mill landlord to describe human life in the womb and what is done to women and children in this abortion mill. 

Just as the Nazis needed to dehumanize the Jews in order to kill them, in this video we hear ignorance and self-deception beyond description as human beings are described as medical waste.   

We also hear and experience in the video the driving force of the abortion business – a mocking hatred of Christianity.  Yet it is fascinating to hear a kind and gentle older lady ask the foul-mouthed landlord, who is mocking Christianity, the question  "Can you define a Christian for me?"  Then see the arrogant abortion profiteer walk away, unable to answer.

You can also notice in this video empty school buses which the mill owner strategically placed to block offers of help to mothers in need – it is quite ironic that a man in the business of killing children would use the very buses those children should be using to go to school to help get these children killed.

 WARNING:  CONTAINS FILTHY LANGUAGE.

New ad and website expose the magnitude of Obama’s loyalty to Planned Parenthood

The Susan B. Anthony List has released a catchy, informative video exposing the magnitude of Barack Obama’s loyalty to Planned Parenthood in his capacity as president…

 
 
Alert icon
SBA List’s accompanying website, TurnOffTheMusic.com, shows how President Obama has reciprocated Planned Parenthood’s $1.7 million political investment in 2008 and 2010:

During fiscal year 2009, Planned Parenthood reported receiving over $363 million dollars in government grants and contracts – an all-time record – boosting their annual budget to over $1 billion.

In February of 2011, in response to undercover videos by Live Action in which Planned Parenthood employees show a willingness to aid and abet in alleged sex trafficking of minors, Obama called it a "manufactured" issue….

When Speaker Boehner demanded that [a Planned Parenthood] cut be a part of the final Continuing Resolution deal to keep the federal government from shutting down, President Obama refused to cut a dime…. respond[ing], "Nope, zero. Nope, zero. John, this is it."

Now that states are taking the initiative to cut spending, SBA List reports how the Obama administrative is "trying to strong-arm and even bypass [their] decisions":

In June 2011, after [Indiana] Gov. Mitch Daniels signed into law a bill defunding Planned Parenthood, the Obama Administration responded by declaring their law to be "illegal." Furthermore, the Obama Administration told the state that if it did not change the law, Health and Human Services would consider pulling the state’s Medicaid funding, which totals $4.3 billion….

After declaring Indiana’s law to be illegal, HHS issued a warning to other states stating that they are not permitted to "exclude providers from the program solely on the basis of the range of medical services they provide."

In September 2011, responding to a decision made by the elected members of New Hampshire’s Executive Council to reject a $1.8 million dollar contract with Planned Parenthood, the Obama Administration bypassed the state and contracted directly with Planned Parenthood. The non-competitive contract outraged local officials….

It really is breathtaking to see how far Obama has been willing to go to force not only federal taxpayers but state legislatures to continue financially supporting Planned Parenthood.

But this support is only temporal. Obama and Planned Parenthood are merely fighting headwinds.

An Open Letter To Edward N. Peters From A Catholic On A Sidewalk

Rockford, Il  (ProLileCorner.com) – 9-28-2011 – by Staff – For many years Father Frank Pavone has been a leader of the pro-life movement in America.  His contribution to the pro-life movement is incomparable.  He has helped save many lives, helped post-abortive women to overcome their loss and pain, and has worked to save the infirm and elderly as well.  Below is an open letter, written by a veteran pro-lifer, defending Father Pavone and his good works.

Dear Dr Peters,

 My name is Kevin Rilott. I am married with two children, I am a middle school religion teacher, and have stood outside an abortion clinic two days a week for fifteen years.  I do not have the education, credentials, or worldwide reputation you have.  In fact I’m a nobody, but I am deeply troubled by your continued attacks on Fr. Frank Pavone. 

While many academics and Bishops have stayed safely in their ivory towers, telling the faithful the mass murder of over 50 million Americans is wrong, Fr. Pavone has for years stood outside the killing centers where these children have been slaughtered.  Fr. Pavone has endured death threats and personal attacks and has stood in the snow, heat, and rain to minister as a Priest to unborn children, their mothers, and all people of good will who stand publicly in solidarity with the victims of the culture of death.

Yes, Fr. Pavone would be better liked if he remained silent and did not vigorously defend the unborn in both word and deed, but I can tell you the pro-life Christians who actually stand in public day after day and year after year have a Priest in Fr. Pavone who actually stands with them.  A man, like Fr. Pavone who actually does something to save the unborn, can make those who just talk or write about it seem very uncomfortable.

The children who die in these abortion mills have in Fr. Pavone a Priest who is willing to come out of a comfortable Church and share their suffering.  Mothers who are harmed by abortion have in Fr. Pavone a Priest who takes the love of Christ to where they are and doesn’t sit back and wait for the wounded women to come to the Church door for help.  Just as Christ did, Fr. Pavone goes out to the people in need.  I don’t recall Jesus sitting in the synagogue all day, waiting for people to come to Him.

It appears from your writing, Dr. Peters, that you want Fr. Pavone to give up his missionary work for the unborn, settle down, and be a nice parish Priest.

We thank God for our Parish Priests who are the backbone of the Church, but there are other ways Priests serve Christ and His people.  Was every Priest who was a missionary or educator,  ran an orphanage, nursing home, or soup kitchen, worked in a chancery,  a hospital, or school less a Priest because he wasn’t a Parish Priest?

Dr. Peters, would you have attacked Fr. Isaac Jogues for his work with the Indians of North America by saying he should have stayed in a Parish back in France?  Would you have belittled Fr. Francis Xavier because he didn’t stay a quiet parish Priest?  Fr. Pavone is doing the same missionary work as these men who did not have a parish, and your writings are filled with disdain toward Fr. Pavone. 

I don’t believe Fr. Pavone "diminishes appreciation for diocesan Priestly work" as a few people have said, who have never spent the long days and years on the streets as Fr. Pavone has done,  battling a demonic force that has murdered millions of children. 

Dr. Peters, many people have spent years in the cold, snow, and rain, watching, praying, and offering help as thousands of children are slaughtered right in front of their eyes. We need a Priest like Fr. Pavone to help us love the mothers and children in need and deal with the long years ahead, trying to minister to people suffering and dying at abortion mills.

When we have Bishops trying to keep Priests from praying at 40 Days for Life and canon lawyers attacking and diminishing the life- and soul-saving work of a good Priest like Fr. Pavone, I, a person who has spent years on the street outside an abortion mill, see the actions of people like you as a greater threat to the saving of human lives and souls than I see from the abortion supporters who have assaulted us verbally and physically outside the Rockford abortion mill.

In your writing, Dr. Peters, you question Fr. Pavone’s "importance to the pro-life movement."  That is a question only God can answer.  But I do know because of Fr. Frank Pavone’s fulfilling his ministry as a Catholic Priest, by the grace of God, thousands of children are alive today; thousands of women have been healed of the deep wounds of abortion, and every pro-life Catholic who has spent years praying outside abortion mills has been blessed beyond words by the ministry and leadership of a this Catholic Priest. 

Dr. Peters, I am a no one.  Just a pro-lifer who stands on a sidewalk.  But I know Fr. Pavone is a man who has gone out into the streets to love and serve the least of Christ’s people in the unborn who are facing death.  I just hope instead of attacking him again, you would spend a few years actually helping people in the streets before you continue to try to destroy the ministry of a Priest who is saving lives and souls.

Sincerely,

Kevin Rilott

 

 

Congress to Investigate Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

by Steven Ertelt | LifeNews.com | 9/27/11 3:10 PM – A Congressional committee has taken the first steps in investigating the Planned Parenthood abortion business over abuses ranging from financial disparities to its compliance with federal regulations on taxpayer funding to concerns that it is covering up cases of sex trafficking.

 
 
In a September 15 letter LifeNews.com obtained, Rep. Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican who is the chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Investigations, writes to Cecile Richards, the president of Planned Parenthood.
“Pursuant to Rules X and XI of the United States House of Representatives, the Committee on Energy and Commerce is examining the institutional practices and policies of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) and its affiliates, and its handing of federal funding,” Stearns writes. “That Committee has questions about the politics in place and actions undertaken by PPFA and its affiliates relating to its use of federal funding and its compliance with federal restrictions on the funding of abortion.”
The letter asks Richards to comply with current federal regulations and legal obligations by providing Congress with a wide range of documents within two weeks of the date of the letter.
“Please provide all internal audit reports conducted by PPFA and its affiliates from 1998 to 2010. If not clearly indicated in the audit reports, please detail how much PPFA and each affiliate expended and received in Title XIX Medicaid funding, Title X family planning, and any other federal funding,” the letter says.
The letter requests any information related to improper billing related to federally-funded programs, proof that federal funds are not being improperly used to pay for abortions by PPFA or its affiliates, audits by state agencies of any Planned Parenthood affiliate, and documentation of how many affiliates currently receive Title X family planning funding.
The Stearns letter also requests documents on standards and practices related to billing issues, written policies and procedures, and it requests information on how the abortion giant keeps its family planning abortion monies separate and segregated.
The abortion business responded on Twitter, saying, “Stearns is misusing his position to attack Planned Parenthood & women’s health care.”
“Planned Parenthood is a trusted nonprofit health care provider that provides professional, reliable and quality health care, including birth control, lifesaving cancer screenings, annual exams, and STD testing and treatment to three million women and men across the country,” said Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America.  “This politically motivated investigation is a continuation of the efforts of earlier this year to undermine Planned Parenthood, and more disturbingly, women’s access to the primary and preventive care they need.”
Richards said the abortion business has “a strong record of fiscal responsibility and have, always complied with all laws and regulations applicable to the receipt and use of federal funds.”
Planned Parenthood has come under heavy criticism in recent years for covering up cases of statutory rape by failing to report abortions done on unborn children of teen girls who have been victimized to authorities and by aiding and assisting alleged sex traffickers in obtaining abortions and other “services” for the women and girls they victimize. As such, as the Stearns letter asks for information related to those concerns.
“Please provide a summary of how PPFA detects criminal conduct and the policies and procedures in place to prevent it or report it,” the letter reads. “Please provide the policies and procedures PPFA and its affiliates have in place to ensure that all Planned Parenthood clinics report all cases of suspected sexual abuse, including statutory rape, to proper authorities.”
“Please provide the policies and procedures PPFA and its affiliates have in place to ensure that suspected sex trafficking is reported to the proper authorities,” it adds.
The letter also includes four pages of legal instructions on how the abortion business should comply with the requests Stearns makes in the letter.
Stearns said earlier this year that he was planning an investigation of the abortion giant: “I believe my Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee should review the findings of this report and possibly hold a hearing on why taxpayers are funding Planned Parenthood with its record of abuse and violations of state laws,” Stearns told Politico. “The American people deserve a concrete reason for funding Planned Parenthood; a reason I do not believe exits.”
The letter follows a request from AUL, members of Congress, and other pro-life groups urging an investigation. Americans United for Life issued a report featuring a groundbreaking analysis of the nation’s largest abortion business and saying it has uncovered evidence of systemic financial irregularities within the abortion giant, which receives more than $363 million in federal and state taxpayer funding, and that Congress should investigate.
AUL staff combed through 20 years of Planned Parenthood financial data and the report documents the known and alleged abuses by Planned Parenthood, including the misuse of federal health care and family planning funds, failure to report criminal child sexual abuse, failure to comply with parental involvement laws, assisting those engaged in prostitution and/or sex trafficking, and dangerous misuse of the abortion drug RU-486.
AUL officials held a press conference with Rep. Renee Ellmers, a North Carolina Republican, and Rep. Randy Hultgren, an Illinois Republican, who have invited other members of Congress to join them in calling for a congressional probe of the abortion giant. Congressman Doug Lamborn, a Colorado Republican, Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, and Rep. Bill Huizenga, a Michigan Republican, joined the event as well.
In a letter to her colleagues, Ellmers wrote, “I invite my colleagues to review the findings of this report and to join us on Thursday as we voice our concerns about the issues raised  and express our renewed commitment to seeking accountability for taxpayers and for investigating whether taxpayers are funding an organization that misuses government funding and violates state laws.”
Stearns later told Americans United for Life more about his feelings on the matter of Planned Parenthood, saying, “Taxpayers deserve accountability, and the report prepared by Americans United for Life demonstrates egregious abuses of taxpayer funds by Planned Parenthood. The legal team at Americans United for Life reviewed two decades of reports, audits, and financial statements regarding Planned Parenthood.”
“The report outlines Planned Parenthood’s record of violating state sexual assault and child abuse reporting laws, and of encouraging young girls to lie about their ages to circumvent state reporting laws. They also found as government funding of Planned Parenthood rises, so does the number of abortions. They found repeated instances of overbilling government health care programs,” he added.
Planned Parenthood previously responded to the report claiming the information is false.
“We are proud of the trust millions of women place in us every year to provide high quality health care. We approach our work with a deep sense of responsibility to the patients we serve, and recognize that the importance of our work is growing because in many communities we are often the only source of affordable quality health care for women,” the abortion business said. “This so-called report is a politically driven attack by an organization opposed to birth control and expanded access to birth control. It uses discredited, recycled and misleading claims to attack Planned Parenthood and should be viewed with a skeptical eye.”

A New Brochure Exposes The Dangers Of Abortion In Rockford

Rockford, Il – (ProLifeCorner.com) – 9-27-2011 – by Rockford Pro-Life Initiative – The Rockford Pro-Life Initiative has produced an easy-to-read, professionally printed brochure that details the horrific and dangerous conditions inside the Rockford abortion mill.  This full color brochure also presents the facts of just some of the malpractice cases that have been brought against the abortionist who founded the Rockford abortion mill.

 
 
This brochure is an excellent tool that can be:
 
Placed in brochure racks in churches, schools, and doctors’ offices.
 
Given to people who are confused about abortion.
 
Left on gas pumps, in waiting rooms, or placed anywhere people might pick one up.
 
If you would like to order this brochure to distribute please email Kevin at everlifematters@comcast.net
This is a powerful tool to get the word out on the horrors of abortion in Rockford.  
 
Below is some of the information contained in this brochure.
 
Kelli W. sued after an abortion performed at the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.  Kelli had sought an abortion due to complications with previous pregnancies and had selected Ragsdale because he "had been publicized as a promoter of safety and proper procedure through abortion clinics."  Within 24 hours after the abortion, Kelli suffered severe pain and blood loss. She called Ragsdale and was assured this was normal and would dissipate. She was later admitted to a hospital where physicians found "a large percentage of the fetus" still in her uterus.  Kelli required additional surgery. (Winnebago County Circuit Court Case No. 89L580)

Trace O. sued after an abortion performed at the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.  Trace said that the abortion failed to terminate the pregnancy, and she underwent an additional abortion. She sued for the loss of her right ovary and fallopian tube, continuing pain, and medical expenses. (Winnebago County Circuit Court Case No. 85 L 101)

Cindy W., age 19, alleged that she underwent an abortion at the Northern Illinois Women’s Center.  There, a counselor noted that Cindy was "new to pelvic exams – extremely immature, will go along with this without much thought as she is very dependent on male." Cindy’s attorney faulted Ragsdale with failure to diagnose a tubo-ovarian abscess, and said that Ragsdale did not wash Cindy prior to initiating the abortion.  Cindy returned to the clinic on June 29with severe pains in her side beginning a week and a half after the abortion.  Ragsdale diagnosed "her left ovary had blood clots" and prescribed ampicillin and Empirin.  After two weeks the medication ran out, and the pain returned, but Cindy tolerated the continued pain for two more weeks.  On July 16 Cindy’s father took her to the ER because she was doubled over in pain.  The hospital referred her to her family doctor, who gave Cindy medication.  On July 17 the family doctor prescribed medication and told Cindy to return in 10 days.  She returned on July 27 per instructions with such severe abdominal pain that her doctor admitted her to a hospital, where she was diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) with bilateral tubal ovarian abscesses, diverticulum, and periappendicitis related to the PID.  Cindy underwent a laparoscopy, lysis of pelvic adhesions, a right salpingo-oophorectomy, an appendectomy, and a diverticulectomy.  She had been admitted on July 27 and remained hospitalized until August 8.  Her operative report indicated "right adnexal inflammatory mass completely filled the pelvis, was intimately adherent to the posterior leaf of the right broad ligament and to the peritoneum of the right lateral pelvic wall…. There were several loops of small bowel adherent to the inflammatory mass."  The operative report also noted a smaller adherent mass on the left side.  Cindy was subsequently re-hospitalized with recurring pelvic infection.  The case was dismissed. (Winnebago County Circuit Court Case No. 82-2-319)

Linda M. alleged that she underwent an abortion at the Northern Illinois Women’s Center. The suit charged Ragsdale with failure to properly examine Linda prior to discharging her from the facility.  She suffered pain and infection due to Ragsdale’s failure to remove all fetal parts.  Linda required a total hysterectomy. (Winnebago County Circuit Court No. 81 L 116) 

 
 These are just some of the frightening violations documented by the State of Illinois in June 2011, concerning conditions inside Rockford’s abortion mill;
 
The Northern Illinois Women’s Center did NOT meet the requirement of a sanitary facility.
 
It was determined "that 3 of 3 operating rooms inspected failed to ensure a sanitary environment."
 
NIWC failed to prevent potential contamination of clean equipment.
 
Gynecological cannulas were stained with a "brown substance!"  (Cannulas are surgical instruments inserted directly inside a mother.)
 
Shoes were stored inside an open box of surgical gloves.
 
Operating room #1 contained a box of opened surgical gloves stained with a dried brown substance.
 
The equipment used to sterilize medical instruments, called an autoclave, failed biological testing on at least two occasions!    
 
NIWC failed to meet the requirement that a qualified Registered Nurse be present in the operating room.  This dangerous and illegal situation went on for well over three years.
 
NIWC did not have an RN in the operating room for over three years.  It didn’t even have one on the payroll.  There was no "director of nurses" to oversee care.  Unqualified and unlicensed personnel were doing the work of a professional nurse.
 
From the description of  "brown substances" on surgical equipment and gloves, to not having a qualified nursing staff, to equipment used to sterilize surgical instruments not working properly, this report is an indictment of the very dangerous and disgusting conditions that have existed inside the Rockford abortion mill for a long time.
 
We have seen racism, bigotry, and grotesque hatred for God and human life displayed in the windows of this clinic building for years.  It seems this place is as careless, unprofessional, alarming, and dangerous on the inside as it is on the outside. 
 
A local nurse who read the report from the Illinois Dept of Public Health said, "Yet, even with all these violations and without a registered nurse in their employ, they were open for business the very next day.  What does it take for the IDPH to shut this place down?  Do women really deserve this quality of medical care?"
