PA Abortion Provider-40 Lawsuits and 9 Staff in Custody

State Health Departments fail to enforce existing regulations for abortion providers and Pennsylvania is no exception.

A very astute pregnancy center executive running a highly effective linear service operation recently said, “Abortion providers are morally incapable of providing ethical medical services.” And every once in a while that truth becomes obvious. If there are regulations they are not enforced. If there are no regulations abortion proponents like NARAL, Planned Parenthood and the ACLU work tirelessly to keep it that way.

For a woman abortion is the result of her feeling trapped, like she has no choice at all. What we need is a community committed to helping women have their babies-it is then that women will not feel the need to have abortions, it is then that the American abortion trend will be reversed. Ideologically, who would NOT covet that future but the people who profit from abortion (e.g. venal coward politicians and money grubbing baby killers)? That’s right, venal cowards and baby killers. Whatever happened to nobility and virtue? Whatever happened to repentance of sin and self-sacrifice for others? Abortion is a symptom not of differing opinions about issues but rather a symptom of a culture rotting from the inside out. And the stench sometimes seeps into the sinuses of sycophantic media suck ups whose public decry is only as deep as the tears caused by the sting of a sliced onion. The government wields the sword to protect its citizenry from people like this. What happens when the government takes a moral position to call that which is evil ‘good’ like it has done with abortion? A slippery slope of moral degradation and an ever increasing amount of societal chaos over which the government is truly powerless. Today is a new day. Let us solve the problem that our forerunners were either too lazy or too morally bankrupt to solve the 38 years ago.

The time is coming when all service providers, pro-life pregnancy resource centers and abortion providers alike, will be regulated. Either we govern ourselves or we will be governed. Implementing  linear service model is the only way to ensure that services are being delivered to all clients and patients in an ethical manner according to current medical and counseling standards of care. Good intentions are not enough anymore. Learn more about the importance of a linear service model and how it can dramatically improve your center’s ability to reduce risk of liability while at the same time increase the number of abortion minded women your center is able to reach and serve. prcoptimizationtool.com

Bill of Rights for Women Facing Unintended Pregnancy

Due to the polarizing nature of the political climate concerning abortion in America, women facing unplanned pregnancy are at high risk of victimization by service organizations.

Patient Rights for Women Facing Unplanned Pregnancy

Women facing unplanned pregnancy are susceptible to unique forms of conflict of interest. An example of a conflict of interest would be abortion providers who have a vested financial interest in one particular choice over another (unless they offer abortion services for free and do not bill insurance companies for the service).

Without standardized information and support to women, good will and high ideals can easily degenerate into a tool for propagating a political agenda and the further exploitation of vulnerable women. The following “Bill of Rights for Women Facing Unintended Pregnancy” should be employed as a standard by all Reproductive Health Service organizations.

A Woman Facing Unintended Pregnancy Has The Right To:

1.      Receive services from organizations committed to integrity, free from manipulation or coercion.

2.      Receive services in an environment that supports her decision-making autonomy.

3.      Be respected enough to make a decision that is right for her by receiving a non-biased presentation of all her pregnancy-related options.

4.      Comprehensive information about her current medical status including information on the nature and physiology of her current pregnancy.

5.      Access to objective information about all her legal options related to pregnancy and pregnancy termination.

6.      Receive services from an organization with written documentation of all services and information provided to insure internal uniformity of service delivery.

7.      Receive services from an organization with a written verification process that services have been provided according to written protocol on a per patient basis by job role (e.g. receptionist, counselor, nurse, physician).

8.      Full disclosure about the nature of how an organization stands to financially profit from any particular decision a woman may choose to make at that organization.

9.      Standardized medical services by organizations held accountable to follow protocols designed to insure that all services and information are delivered ethically and objectively, the same way for every woman.

10.  Assurance of high quality medical follow-up care provided by or arranged by the physician responsible for the initial delivery of service.

11.  A non-judgmental, caring environment.

12. Access to ongoing, long term community support should she choose to carry the pregnancy to full-term.

Nothing short of this degree of effort (see items 6-8) is essential when given the responsibility by women to help them navigate this most difficult of life circumstances. Pregnancy centers as well as abortion providers must be held to the standards set forth in this document. If they refuse or simply cannot respect the rights of women in this way then they should shut their doors or advertise their ongoing political and financial conflicts of interest.
