Issue: Maryland does not collect abortion statistics. However, 46 other states do.

There are numerous public policy reasons why the state should collect abortion statistics. Forty-six states know that data about abortion is important for maternal health, something confirmed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Not only do abortion statistics help identify the type of women who are at risk for unplanned pregnancies, but tracking abortion complications helps identify the health risks of abortion surgery and gives indicators as to how to minimize the risks.

Did you know?

  • Last year, it’s estimated that Leroy Carhart aborted 700 viable babies in Germantown, but the true number is unknown.
  • The teen pregnancy rate in Maryland is unknown.
  • Abortion erases evidence of the crime of statutory rape.
  • The infant mortality rate likely correlates to the abortion rate.
  • The number of women injured or killed annually in abortion clinics is unknown.

Action: You are receiving this alert because your legislator[s] may sit on the Health and Government Operations committee and/or the Senate Finance committee. Please contact your legislator[s] on these committees and insist that Maryland require collection of abortion statistics (SB 427/HB 967). Click here and scroll down to contact them.

Press Release – Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic Opening and Save

Press Release issued today about Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic:

Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic viagra super active generic Opens Just In Time, Meets Needs The Very First Day

Annapolis, MD, 3/27/2012: On Tuesday, March 13, a young who was scheduled for an abortion at Planned Parenthood on West Street, stopped instead at the newly opened Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic – which is literally right across the street.  Instead of ending her baby’s life that day, she was able to see her unborn child, courtesy of a free ultrasound, and reconsidered her decision.  It was the first day of business for the new clinic, and it was open only 2 hours before making a positive impact on this woman’s life.

Pamela Palumbo, CEO of the Pregnancy Clinic Ministry, one of the premier Medical Pregnancy Clinic providers in the country, had this to say about the first day of business in Annapolis, “We are so thankful for those who stood in front of Planned Parenthood for years praying for this little yellow house, for Michael Martelli who faithfully brought up opening a Pregnancy Clinic here, and for all the individuals and churches who got behind this with their financial support. Those prayers and financial support are what are needed to keep us her, offering the truth spoken in love and a cool glass of water in the name of Christ to women and men at risk for abortion.”

In addition to this young lady, two other clients were seen that first day, and took advantage of several services by the new clinic, which include free pregnancy tests, STD screening, and parenting classes.  However, on that particular day, it was the free ultrasound that made all the difference.  In addition to getting to see her baby, this first client also discovered that there were people in the area who care for her and her child, and were willing to stand by her, no matter her situation.

“This tremendous story illustrates what we in the Pro-Life movement have been saying for years – that most abortions are chosen because women feel they have NO choice. But when life-affirming medical clinics like this one offer real choices, many women choose life for their child, and avoid a lifetime of regret and heartache,” said Michael Martelli, Executive Director of the Maryland Coalition for Life.

* The Maryland Coalition for Life is a community-based, grassroots, pro-life network dedicated to bringing the many Maryland pro-life organizations, churches, elected officials, and individual citizens together peacefully and prayerfully to end abortion in Maryland – forever.

A Ribbon-cutting, an Opening, and a SAVE!!

“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those viagra professional living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” — Isaiah 9:2

The passage above was made manifest before the very eyes of over 50 volunteers, visitors and board members who gathered together Saturday morning, March 10, for the opening of the new Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic on West Street. Located just across the street from the ONLY abortion clinic remaining in Anne Arundel County, the homey, light-colored cottage stands in stark contrast to its polar opposite across the street.

Annapolis Pregnancy Clinic Ribbon CuttingAPC is as cozy as the Planned Parenthood building is cold, and as positive and life affirming as PP is death mongering. The new Clinic will offer women a wide variety of free per-natal services, including sonograms, pregnancy tests, and tests for STDs. Even better, they will offer hope to women who feel trapped into making a life and death decision when they are at their most vulnerable.

Escorts at Planned Parenthood of AnnapolisAmong those who saw a great light Saturday were four “Clinic Escorts”, brought in from DC (because they couldn’t get anyone local) to stand outside during the festivities going on across the street. It should be noted that their stony, almost impassive faces provided yet another meaningful contrast to the joy being expressed by God’s people. They did, however, respond quite politely when Annapolis Clinic CEO Pamela Palumbo invited them in for coffee and cookies. Kudos to Pamela for offering a hot cup of coffee in Jesus’ name, and, let’s hope, giving the other side something to think about.

Miss the ceremony on Saturday? Watch the video recap on Vimeo!

Then, on Tuesday morning (March 13th), APC opened for business!! And what a first day it was!!!

3D/4D SonogramIn the morning a young woman with an appt. for an abortion at Planned Parenthood parked on the side street next to APC and stood looking at the sign & door. The APC Office Manager went out, asked if she could help. When the girl mentioned her scheduled appointment at PP, the APC Office Manager offered her a sonogram, which she accepted. By time she left, she decided NOT to go for her abortion!! Pray she stays strong and can work out some difficult family issues. 2 other young women were also seen on Tuesday. One needed help with her pregnancy and another was pregnant and considering abortion. Everyone at APC is SO thankful for EVERYONE who made it possible for this new Clinic to be there, along with the 3D/4D ultrasound to share this truth of LIFE!

Expert Witness in Brigham Case Folds to Pressure from Abortionists

A very important Update from Operation Rescue and the Prosecuter handling the case agains Brigham and Riley. The abortion industry continues to use coersion and intimidation to keep abortionists in practice, and keep organizations like Planned Parenthood alive (ref. PP’s attack on Susan G Komen when they removed funding from PP).

*****************

Expert Witness In Abortion Murder Case Recants Under Pressure From Late-Term Abortionists

While charges have been dropped for now, the investigation of Brigham and Riley’s late-term abortion scheme continues   

March 8, 2012  

By Cheryl Sullenger (Operation Rescue)

Elkton, MD – State Attorney Ellis Rollins told reporters on Wednesday that he withdrew murder charges against abortionist Steven Chase Brigham and Nicola Irene Riley on Tuesday because his expert witness succumbed to pressure “from [the expert’s] colleagues in the late-term abortion community.”

Brigham and Riley had been charged with the murder of viable pre-born babies under Maryland’s fetal homicide law that allows prosecutions of those who kill viable babies in the commission of a crime.

The two abortionists conducted a bi-state late-term abortion operation in which women would begin their abortions at Brigham’s main office in Voorhees, New Jersey, – where he was not licensed to do abortions past 14 weeks – then return the next day when they travelled in caravan to a clandestine abortion clinic in Elkton for the completion of the abortion. While Riley is licensed in Maryland, Brigham holds no medical license in that state. The operation was discovered when one of their patients suffered life-threatening botched abortion injuries that required her to be airlifted to Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore for emergency surgery to save her life.

Brigham’s defense challenged the jurisdictional authority of Maryland to charge the abortionists, alleging that the deaths of the babies actually took place in New Jersey with Maryland only being the site where the remains were evacuated from the mother’s womb.

Rollins said that the Elkton police conducted their own investigation and determined that the babies died in Maryland, not in New Jersey as the defense contends. An expert witness for the state was retained, who confirmed that the deaths took place in Maryland. The witness, who Rollins has declined to identify, is considered an expert in late-term abortions.

“He led us to believe that the medical evidence pointed to the fact that both parts of the abortion process had to have occurred in Maryland. He was unequivocal,” Rollins said.

But last week, a phone call between Rollins and the expert witness indicated that the witness had been in contact with other late-term abortionists who were pressuring him to change his views. “In the phone call, he indicated that he was feeling pressure from some colleagues. We did what we could to reassure him,” Rollins said.

Then on Friday, the witness sent an “unsolicited e-mail” to Rollins indicating that he was now unsure where the deaths of the babies occurred.

“There can be no doubt that late-term abortionists fearing for their own careers applied pressure to the witness and he succumbed under the pressure. In price on viagra other words, he was bullied into bowing out of the case,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We have seen some of the documents for ourselves and the evidence is strong that the babies were still alive when they were dismembered at that Elkton abortion mill.”

Since the passing of the Federal Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act of 2003, late-term abortionists have adopted what has become known as the Induction Abortion method. In this kind of abortion, the living is injected through the mother’s abdominal wall with digoxin or some other drug that causes “fetal demise” or the death of the baby in the womb. The woman’s cervix is then packed with laminaria, which are thin tampon-like dilators made of seaweed that gently expand the opening of the womb. The woman is then given drugs to initiate labor. Finally, the abortionist extracts the dead baby either intact or in parts.

Brigham’s defense indicated that the fetal demise would have taken place in New Jersey. This would have been done with the lethal fetal injection.

“The injection process is a tricky one, and it is not unusual for the injection to fail. But in this case, Brigham’s own records indicate that he was cutting corners on the process and skipping the fetal injection altogether. That would mean these babies were alive at the time they were aborted in Maryland,” said Newman.

According to records obtained by Operation Rescue through open records requests, there is documented evidence that at least one baby was alive at the time of the abortion in Maryland. Brigham’s own medical records in the case of D.B., an 18-year old patient whose botched 22-week abortion first drew attention to Brigham’s illegal late-term abortion enterprise, incriminate him.

A form titled Laminaria Insertion & Induction of Fetal Demise was produced at Brigham’s Voorhees, New Jersey, facility on August 12, 2010, the day before D.B. botched surgery in Maryland. On that form, Brigham documents a pelvic exam and laminaria insertion, but the section of the form that is supposed to document an injection into the baby that would bring about fetal demise is left blank.

“Without the fetal injection, nothing in the process that took place in New Jersey could have killed the baby,” said Newman. “Given the record we have seen, that baby died in Maryland.”

“We know what they (Brigham and Riley) had done, but we can’t prove where they did it,” Rollins said.

Rollins indicated that he withdrew the charges because he did not have time to obtain another expert before next week’s scheduled motions hearing. Meanwhile Rollins told the  Cecil Whig newspaper that they are still pursuing the case against the abortionists and that the investigation remains open.

“We’re still investigating. We’re going back to the drawing board and we’re starting all over,” he said.

“We have one message for Brigham and Riley,” said Newman. “Don’t lose the number to the bail bondsman.”
