By Dave Andrusko Earlier today I read a story written by a pro-abortionist who lamented, “If you’ve been following the news surrounding reproductive rights recently, you’d be forgiven for asking yourself whether we’re living in a world where Roe v. Wade was never decided.” Of course, this was a gross over-exaggeration spurred by his underlying …Continue reading "Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act introduced in Delaware"
By Dave Andrusko It was a small portion of a larger (but still) brief story that ran on Delaware Public Media, the local NPR outlet. But the message for the coalition that is fighting physician-assisted suicide (PAS) was immense. This past weekend, Nick Ciolino tells us, The Medical Society of Delaware held its 228th annual …Continue reading "Medical Society of Delaware continues its opposition to Physician-Assisted Suicide"
Similar attempts thwarted in other states By Dave Andrusko The headline to an Associated Press story today is classic bad news/good news: “Delaware protects abortion rights, efforts stall elsewhere.” And the bad news is very bad. Planned Parenthood successfully lobbied the Delaware legislature which is about to create a regime of abortion on demand throughout …Continue reading "Delaware Gov. will sign bill that legalizes abortion on demand throughout pregnancy"
By Calvin Freiburger Premier OB/GYN in Wilmington, Delaware, has announced it will temporarily stop performing surgical abortions in light of state demands that it obtain accreditation or close its doors. Delaware health officials contend the facility has conducted abortions without legally-required accreditation since September 2014, and has ignored repeated warnings to obtain it. The Division …Continue reading "Delaware abortion clinic halts surgical abortions amid scandal"
By Dave Andrusko Last week a proposal in Delaware to legalize physician-assisted suicide ran into a buzz saw of opposition in the House Health & Human Development Committee, prompting the sponsor to table his so-called “death with dignity” legislation. Rep. Paul Baumbach (D-Newark) said he requested that lawmakers keep the legislation in committee. “We knew …Continue reading "Delaware’s “death with dignity” bill tabled"
By Dave Andrusko On Tuesday the Delaware Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline approved the disciplinary terms agreed upon last year by the state and itinerant abortionist Timothy Liveright. “According to the agreement, Liveright admitted to misconduct including: sexual harassment and failure to adequately document procedures and results of procedures in patient charts while …Continue reading "Former Planned Parenthood abortionist reprimanded and fined for behavior at Wilmington abortion clinic"
By Dave Andrusko Delaware is not exactly a hotbed of pro-life sentiment. That is why having the state Board of Medical Licensure & Discipline conduct a closed hearing to consider the case of former Planned Parenthood abortionist Timothy Liveright is so significant. National Right to Life News Today has reported numerous times on Liveright, …Continue reading "Delaware Board of Medical Licensure & Discipline to hold closed hearing to discuss former Planned Parenthood abortionist Timothy Liveright"
By Dave Andrusko All we know are the barest outlines. On Friday an abortionist operating in Delaware, whom authorities said in May represented a “clear and immediate danger to the public,” signed a consent agreement drafted by the attorney general’s office. He did so in lieu of a public hearing. “If everything is accepted …Continue reading "Delaware abortionist abruptly agrees to consent agreement; said to have been a “clear and immediate danger to the public”"
By Dave Andrusko Yesterday afternoon we posted a story about testimony from a third former employee of Planned Parenthood of Delaware’s Wilmington clinic which further documented very serious problems that had been brought to light in testimony given earlier by two former nurses. Today we update the story based on subsequent testimony. Melody Meanor, who …Continue reading "Former Nurse at Planned Parenthood of Delaware’s Wilmington abortion clinic compares it to Gosnell’s “House of Horrors”"
By Dave Andrusko When you are dealing with hard-core pro-abortion states, even a small step in the right direction is important. Especially so when the reason the law is passed is because of Planned Parenthood’s misconduct. On Monday the Delaware House passed the Senate-approved bill, sponsored by Sen. Robert Venables, described by The News Journal …Continue reading "Bill with “moderate abortion regulations” sent to Delaware Governor, measure sparked by “unsafe and unsanitary conditions discovered at a Planned Parenthood clinic in Wilmington”"
By Dave Andrusko My apologies for missing this; tightening up regulations on free-wheeling abortion clinics is very important, especially in places like Delaware. We’d written about Senate Bill 45, which was described as a proposal to license abortion clinics, inspect them annually, and be regulated by the state Department of Health. Planned Parenthood protested that …Continue reading "Weaker Abortion Clinic Regulation Adopted by Delaware State Senate"
