Planned Parenthood Facility Accused of 'Meat-Market Style Assembly-Line Abortions'
Kermit Gosnell was not alone in his horrific abortion practices. A Delaware Planned Parenthood now stands accused by two of its former nurses of engaging in unsafe and unsanitary practices.
A series of emergency calls made from the Planned Parenthood of Delaware this year are raising concerns about what's happening behind the closed doors.
Two former nurses who both quit are speaking exclusively with Action News about what they saw inside.
Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, "It was just unsafe. I couldn't tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was."
Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary.
"He didn't wear gloves," said Werbrich.
Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, "They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile."
The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean.
Werbrich said "It's not washed down, it's not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it."
"They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS," added Vasikonis.
Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.
Vasikonis said, "I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed."
"Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it's needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich."
One story about a horror house abortion clinic could be isolated; two may denote a trend or be evidence of an industry-wide problem. The government reacts to such evidence when, for instance, there is an oil spill. But how about when there is blood on the operating table?
Mary Peterson from the Delaware Department of Health and Human Services said, "I am not going to lie to you, we don't have the manpower to do routine inspections."
Translation: Give me more money for more staff to ignore problems. Then she claims that during their one inspection, they didn't find any problems. Alright then! Meanwhile, Planned Parenthood CEO Ruth Lytle-Barnaby acknowledges that there is a problem, in a statement released to the local news.
In my role as the new CEO of Planned Parenthood of Delaware, recently my staff and I launched a review of patient services. I determined that we need to take immediate steps to assure our patients of our high-quality care, including enacting immediate personnel changes. We do not tolerate employees that fail to meet our standards for patient care and services.
So the government watchdog didn't find any problems, but Planned Parenthood felt compelled to fire people. This does not add up.
