Less accountability, less safety for women

Willie Parker (abortionist)A member of the abortion industry is responding to allegations a former patient has made against him, and one pro-life activist believes the claim calls for a deeper investigation.

Willie Parker claims to be a Christian and uses Scripture to justify his pro-abortion position and to soothe his patients before and after he performs abortion procedures. Cheryl Sullenger's organization, Operation Rescue, has conducted an investigation into the abortionist and has discovered that "at least one woman has come forward and admitted that he had an improper sexual encounter with her."

The patient, Candice Russell, went public with the accusation on her Medium blog post saying Parker molested her while she was intoxicated. At least one of Parker's previous supporters thinks the allegation is substantial?

"It looks like the National Network of Abortion Funds, [which] has an abortion fund named after Willie Parker, is removing that, merging it with another fund," the pro-lifer relays. "They're going to totally rename it here in the next few months. So they're trying to distance themselves from Willie Parker after these allegations of improper sexual conduct have surfaced."

Parker's blog post in response to the accusations tells a different story, as he denies being intimate with anyone without their consent. But Sullenger believes medical boards in each state where he practices the termination of preborn children should investigate, and if appropriate, take action.

Operation Rescue also thinks there is good reason to believe abortions in New York might be getting less safe for the mothers. Sullenger tells OneNewsNow two ambulances recently responded to a call for help for an abortion victim at the Planned Parenthood in Manhattan.

Sullenger, Cheryl"An African-American woman was brought out of the Planned Parenthood in a wheelchair because a gurney won't fit into the elevator, and she was loaded to an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital," the pro-lifer details.

No other information is available on the patient because of privacy considerations, but Sullenger says this is the 15th incident in which a woman was rushed from that facility for emergency care in the last 26 months.

Since New York has liberalized abortion laws and done away with some of the accountability requirements for abortion clinics, Operation Rescue predicts "that we're going to see a lot more medical emergencies."

"When abortion clinics know that they don't have to be accountable, they usually get a little bit sloppy," Sullenger notes. "We saw that in the Kermit Gosnell case … in Pennsylvania."

Gosnell's clinic was filthy and had not been inspected for 18 years because of the lack of accountability. Pennsylvania has since adopted more stringent requirements for inspection, and Gosnell is serving life without parole for killing babies who survived his abortion procedures.
