Washington's Abortion Industry: A look ahead

The past year, 2007, was a banner year for the state's abortion industry. As recounted here, the industry finally solidified gains it had sought for at least a decade prior. Only the attempted denial of conscience rights as stated by the First Amendment to the US Constitution to pharmacists, and by extension all workers, has been stalled by a Federal District Court.

NARAL, Planned Parenthood of Western Washington and the ACLU among others, have however, appealed to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The battle continues.

Furthermore, the abortion industry saw no roll-back in its hold on the levers of power at the state and county levels (judicial, legislative, and administrative branches, health departments, public health agencies, human rights department, etc.), in the education system, the media outlets, and elite opinion. The state of Washington continues to garner an A+ from NARAL, the abortion trade group. The decline in both the rate and number of abortions has stabilized. Meanwhile Planned Parenthood of Western Washington's profits rose approximately 11% each year since 1998.

So what's ahead for the industry? Here's a quick look.

More attacks on Conscience Rights, i.e. legislation of thought crimes.
For a variety of reasons the number of abortionists has declined in the last two decades. As the lack of abortionists continues to haunt the industry, the force of law will be brought to bear on those in the health care professions. People will be directly forced by employers or the state apparatuses to perform, refer for and support abortion and contraception.
Force training of doctors and nurses in abortion services.
Push for laws that further define sterilization, contraception and abortion as "health care" and do not allow for dissent in thought or action.

Move to Increased Use of Chemical Abortion.

As the original pre-Roe cadre of abortion doctors retires and dies, the industry will look to non-physician personnel -- nurses, pharmacists, physician aids -- to begin doing chemical and/or surgical abortions. Our state has already granted permission to nurses to administer chemical abortions and Arizona this week announced it will allow nurses to perform first trimester surgical abortions.

The public, ignorant by choice or chance, will look to chemical abortion as the "magic bullet" to solve the abortion wars and support its widespread use.

Prime the Pump: Increase demand for Abortion
With abortions down 20%, but still high in relative terms, profits are flat. A generation of post-abortive women and men who will support the industry with votes and dollars needs to be raised. The abortion industry will attempt to increase the number of out of wedlock and unwanted pregnancies. To do this they will promote sexual activity among teens and unmarried adults through school-based sex instruction and pornography.

Condoms, "emergency contraception" and reversible sterilization programs, i.e. pills, IUDs, the patch and Norplant implants will continue to be gateway products to Planned Parenthood's abortion services and sources of public and private revenue in their own right. An unquestioning and contraceptive addicted public will be told these devices are society's solution to abortion.

Planned Parenthood of Western Washington Emerges as Dominant Abortion Provider in State
PPWW continues to consolidate its monopoly as the state's primary subcontractor for abortion, sex instruction programs and state sponsored sterilization. Smaller abortion centers without the economies of scale and public relations and lobbying heft will be unable match Planned Parenthood's influence and marketing savvy. The Planned Parenthood brand will be presented to school children of all ages through the state mandated sex instruction program. Children will know how to call Planned Parenthood in the same way they know how to call 911. Smaller one-man abortion centers like Aradia will go out of business.

Exploitation of Women Continues
With no legal requirements for the monitoring or investigation of problems inside abortion facilities and a state health department unwilling to take a hard look at the havoc abortion is having on women's health, the exploitation of women by the abortion industry and those who support it continues into the foreseeable future. With pressure from employers, the state, society, and boyfriends/husbands/parents, the poor, teens, recent immigrants and those living on the margins will turn to abortion as the solution to their problems.

Another Seattle Abortionist Behind Bars

Here's one for the "Quack" file.

The Problems With Dr. Juice: Botched abortions, extortion, steroid trafficking, and a pool table in the exam room were just the beginning.

The pro-abortion Seattle Weekly published an article this week about former abortionist Dr. Howard Levine who was sentenced to prison for almost two years this past February. "Levine had pleaded guilty to a single count of illegal steroid trafficking, one of thousands of mostly Internet-based steroid sales he made to customers across the United States since at least 2004, prosecutors say, including some to undercover bodybuilders from the Drug Enforcement Agency."

Before he was involved in illegal steroid trafficking, Dr. Levine was an abortionist at Women's Health Care Center in Seattle in the early '80s. He only completed study at New York Medical College in Valhalla and was first licensed in 1979 so it would appear that an abortion practice was one of his first stops upon gaining his license.

Things went down hill from there.

In the 90s at "least nine patients accused him of violations ranging from verbal abuse and refusal to don surgical gloves to perforating the uteruses of several patients who later required emergency surgery—in one case, a lifesaving hysterectomy."

By 1999 he and his wife divorced and Dr. Levine turned to homosexual sex, prescribing Viagra over the Internet, and extortion and wire fraud.

Finally, on June 17, 2007, which interestingly is also Father's Day, (A triger date?), "Levine's 20-year-old son called police to the doctor's drug-strewn house on 14th Avenue, where the 58-year-old Levine was threatening suicide. [A] police inventory turned up thousands of pills and drug vials around the house. He wound up in a mental ward, committed for 14 days at Harborview Medical Center. At the hospital, a toxicology screen showed he'd shot meth and swallowed uppers and downers."

Here's what one person left in the Reader Comments box about Dr. Levine:
This article does not BEGIN to tell the story of his crazed behavior. The line "...recently resorted to having sex with multiple partners..." is crazy. Howard was online cruising for sex constantly. He has spent the past decade screwing around with any man he could find, including the porn stars and rentboys he worked with (a missing piece of this article is that Howard provided drugs to dozens of porn stars around the country). He was out at the bars nearly every night of the week trolling for sex.

What. Absolute. Despair.

Even worse, this man doesn't appear to have a friend in the world. The people quoted in the article saying they will stand by him seem clueless about depths of this man's utter darkness and hopelessness. Why did no one stop him from getting into abortion? Or, better yet, who encouraged him to get into the abortion business in the first place? Does he have anyone he can truly confide in? Do the people at NARAL and Planned Parenthood of Western Washington know how badly one of their own is hurting? Do they care?

Abortion kills babies. It hurts women and it hurts abortionists.

Please pray for Dr. Levine.

Local "Non-Profit" Abortionists: Making a Killing

By Jonathan B.
Below is a listing of the salaries for some of the top employees of Washington's largest chain of abortion centers -- Planned Parentood -- and the Cedar River Clinic. Remember your tax dollars go to pay the salaries of these people, which makes them essentially sub-contractors for the state.

Wow. Look at those numbers! We've got a suggested recruitment tagline for the local abortion industry: "It may be killing, but it's one heck of a living!"

Planned Parenthood of Western Washington
Christine CharbonneauCEO$259,418
R. Campbell McIntyreVP, Med. Affairs$243,626
Michael RomoCOO$206,185
Mary GrinnellCFO$170,705
Lucile K. ArendtVP, Ext Affairs$148,565
Carole WilliamsVP, HR$129,615
Stephen McCallisterVP, IT$119,615
Anna Kaminski**Asst. Med. Dir$118,063

Planned Parenthood of Central Washington
Anna FranksCEO$127,000
Sarah CateMed. Dir.$101,420
Elizabeth BianchiPart Time Abortionist$97,905 (NOTE: This is for just 12 hours a week!)
Karl EastlundCOO$92,700

Planned Parenthood of Spokane
Penny M. PalmerMD/FT$144,102
Elizabeth BianchiPT Abortionist$102,290 (NOTE: Same woman as part time for Central Wa. Hours for Spokane not listed)

Cedar River Clinics
Dr. Robert L. KothenbeutelFull Time Abortionist$327,390
Dr. Charlie BrowneFull Time Abortionist$156,050
Beverly WhippleFounder & CEO$71,346

(**a.k.a. The papaya abortionist.)

Isn't it time to get the profit motive out of the abortion industry? All of the above are "non-profits". Just how much sacrifice do you think is involved for these individuals? Do we really want a society where an individual can make a very comfortable full-time career doing (or arranging) abortions?

NOTE: All salaries include benefit plan contributions, not just salary total compensation. Numbers are from 2005 and 2006. Names in blood red are for those we know or are almost certain are actually involved in bringing beautiful, innocent lives to an end with their own hands.

Planned Parenthood Advocate Geoff Simpson Arrested

One of our least favorite legislators Geoff Simpson has been arrested on domestic violence charges, specifically for "Assault, Fourth Degree" and "Interfering w/Reporting of Domestic Violence."

Simpson has been an avid supporter of Planned Parenthood and seems to be fond of picking on the little guy, i.e. trying to deny pharmacists their First Amendment rights.

I do worry about anyone who holds this much anger and aggression toward women. Is there something in Geoff Simpson's past that would make him love Planned Parenthood and hate women? Or maybe he hates himself. Please pray for Geoff Simpson.
