6-day-old Baby NOT a Person, Says NY Appeals Court

A pregnant Jennifer Jorgensen crashed her car in 2008 while on drugs and/or alcohol causing her near-full-term baby to be delivered by emergency C-section.  Jorgensen was initially sentenced to 3 to 9 years in prison for second-degree manslaughter because her baby girl died six days afterward. However, the highest court in the state of New York overturned that conviction, because the case hinged on the question of intent of the state law "to hold pregnant women criminally responsible for engaging in reckless conduct against themselves and their unborn fetuses, such that they should be subject to criminal liability for prenatal conduct that results in postnatal death? Under the current statutory scheme, the answer to this question is no."

Prosecutors argued that Jennifer Jorgensen was speeding, intoxicated, and unbelted when she crossed into traffic in 2008 and hit another vehicle head-on, killing Mary and Robert Kelly. Jorgensen, of Long Island, was eight months’ pregnant at the time.

She was acquitted of manslaughter in the deaths of the Kellys but convicted of recklessly causing her daughter’s death.

But the Court of Appeals, in a 5-1 ruling, said the state Legislature didn’t intend to hold a pregnant woman responsible for such harmful conduct to herself or her fetus unless it’s intentional.

From "Court Overturns LI Woman’s Conviction In 2008 Death Of Baby" by CBS New York & Associated Press 10/22/15

Any imposition of criminal liability for actions of pregnant women where a child later dies from injuries suffered while in the womb needs to be clearly defined by lawmakers, Judge Eugene Pigott Jr. wrote. “It should also not be left to the whim of the prosecutor.”

“Conceivably, one could find it ‘reckless’ for a pregnant woman to disregard her obstetrician’s specific orders concerning bed rest; take prescription and/or illicit drugs; shovel a walkway; engage in a contact sport; carry groceries; or disregard dietary restrictions,” Pigott wrote. “Such conduct, if it resulted in premature birth and subsequent death of the child, could result in criminal liability for the mother.”

At present, that’s not in New York’s criminal law, Pigott wrote.

In a dissent, Judge Eugene Fahy wrote that he could not join in a ruling that analyzes New York statutes to determine that the 6-day-old child was not a person because she was unborn when her mother crashed. “The pertinent parts of the Penal Law speak to victims as they are, not as they were at the time the acts giving rise to the crime were committed.”

From "Court reverses mother's conviction in infant death" by Casey Seiler, Albany Times Union 10/22/15

In June 2009, Jorgensen was indicted for aggravated vehicular homicide, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol and — charges related to the death of the infant — manslaughter in the second degree and endangering the welfare of a child.

Her first trial ended with a hung jury. In a 2010 retrial, Jorgensen was convicted on only one charge: second-degree manslaughter for causing the death of her daughter. A 3- to 9-year sentence was stayed pending her appeal. An appellate court subsequently upheld her conviction.

The court said that Suffolk County prosecutors "concede that, had defendant not consented to the cesarean section with the result that the child be born alive, she would not have been prosecuted for manslaughter in the second degree." Ruling against Jorgensen, then, "would create a perverse incentive for a pregnant woman to refuse a cesarean section out of fear that if her baby is born alive she would face criminal charges for her alleged reckless conduct, jeopardizing the health of the woman and the unborn fetus."

From "Mom's Conviction Tossed for Baby's Death in Crash" by Nick Divito, Courthouse News Service 10/23/15

State legislators have put down laws to criminalize self-abortions, but has left the question "ambiguous" as to whether it's a crime to be reckless while pregnant.

"We conclude that the legislature did not intend to impose greater punishment on pregnant women for their alleged reckless conduct toward a fetus than for their intentional conduct," [Judge] Pigott wrote.

And since the baby did not die while in the womb, Jorgenson "could not have been prosecuted under the manslaughter statute because the fetus would not have fallen under the definition of a 'person'" under the law, the said.

Judge Eugene M. Fahey Fahey dissented, stating: "I conclude that the baby was a person in the eyes of the penal law, that the mother can be held accountable ... for the baby's death, and that the appellate division's order should be affirmed."

Colorado Abortionists Endorse School Candidates

As the teacher's union and myriad other liberal organizations mount a campaign to recall conservative school board members of the Jeffco Public Schools of Jefferson County in Golden, Colorado (the state's second-largest district), Planned Parenthood sees this as a golden opportunity to increase revenue and therefore has launched a campaign telling voters to dump abstinence-based sex education in favor of their $125 per student sex kits.

-- From "School Board Recall Vote in Colorado Tests Conservative Policies" by Jack Healy, New York Times 10/28/15

The question facing voters is whether to oust a polarizing school board that has championed charter schools, performance-based teacher pay and other education measures supported by conservatives. Supporters of the recall have raised more than $250,000, about $15,000 of that from the local teachers’ union. . . .

Voters here are almost evenly divided among Democrats, Republicans and independents. In November 2013, voters broke with union-supported candidates to elect a slate of school board hopefuls running as conservative reformers.

All five seats on the board are up for election: the three conservatives facing a recall and two seats being vacated by more liberal members.

“I can take it,” said Julie Williams, one of the three conservatives, who said she had received harassing emails. “For my kids, it’s been pretty hard. I come from a strong family. We believe in standing on principle, even with malicious attacks on me personally.”

From "Death threats, big money become part of Jeffco school board recall" by Yesenia Robles, The Denver Post 10/29/15

Campaign finance reports released this week show more than $450,000 has been raised by candidates and committees involved in the recall. But other organizations that act indirectly — including Americans for Prosperity, which supports the current board — do not have to file their spending. There are estimates that as much as $1 million already may have been spent on the recall.

The three union-backed candidates to replace the board members facing a recall have reported more than $144,900 in campaign contributions.

Committees supporting and opposing the recall have reported a total of about $181,000.  . . .

From "Is Planned Parenthood Targeting Schoolchildren?" by Jennifer Kerns, The Daily Signal 10/28/15

Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado, a non-profit 501(c)4 organization, has sent letters to voters asking them to become involved in the school board recalls by first signing the petition to recall their elected officials, then volunteering for the effort to oust their local school board members.

. . . the Planned Parenthood group boasts of advancing “Colorado youths’ rights to real sex education and reproductive health care.” The group still opposes the state’s Parental Notification Act passed by the legislature in 2003 that requires parents of school-aged children under the age of 18 must be notified within 48 hours prior to abortion.

. . . Planned Parenthood is selling sex kits to local schools—including schools in the county in question—which Planned Parenthood’s own national website calls “Birth Control Training Kits.”

According to Planned Parenthood’s website, each of the kits contains 10 male condoms, two “female condoms,” one intrauterine contraceptive, one package of oral contraceptives, one “dental dam,” two samples of “water-based lubricants,” “cycle beads” for natural family planning purposes, one “Today” contraceptive sponge, one “syringe” containing a Depo Provera shot, and two vaginal contraceptive spermicidal films.

At least one local official in Jefferson County familiar with the kit reports that it includes a faux “Plan B” pill to familiarize school-aged students with “the morning after” pill.

From "Vote in the Election on November 3rd For Real Sex Ed!" posted at Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado 10/15/15

For decades, abstinence-only extremists have targeted Colorado schools and students. The goal of these programs is to shame and scare youth out of sexual activity and they have proven ineffective in reducing unintended pregnancy rates.

As one of the leading reproductive health advocacy organizations in the state, Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado (PPVC) works to advocate for and protect young people’s access to age-appropriate, complete and real sex education in Colorado schools. PPVC was part of a coalition of advocates who worked with the Colorado General Assembly in 2013 to put guidelines in place for public schools who provide sex education. These guidelines require that schools that provide sex education do so in a way that is “medically accurate, age-appropriate, evidence-based, culturally-sensitive and inclusive of positive youth development.”

To help voters in choosing school board candidates, PPVC invited and collected surveys from candidates on a variety of questions concerning reproductive health and education. As a result of the survey, PPVC is issuing this list of Colorado school board candidates who are identified as “supporters” of comprehensive sex education and young people’s access to reproductive health care.

2015 Planned Parenthood Votes Colorado's School Board Candidate Supporters of Reproductive Health and Education:

    Susan Harmon - Jefferson County School Board District 2
    Ron Mitchell – Jefferson County School Board District 5

The survey includes questions about implementation of age-appropriate, medically accurate, evidence-based sex education, teaching consent and sexual assault awareness and prevention, and support of curriculum that makes LGBTQ [homosexual, bisexual, transgender, etc.] youth feel included in sex education curricula and anti-bullying and harassment strategies.  The survey also asks if the candidates support minors’ access to confidential reproductive healthcare services, and that such services should be available at school-based health centers. These services and protections are vital to ensure youth have access to the reproductive health care they need.

Must Censor Speech, Say Most College Students

A recent survey proves the success of public education indoctrination of children against freedom of politically incorrect speech:  A majority of college students across America believe that colleges should not permit faculty or students to speak freely because "hate speech" is against the law.  One-third of respondents indicated they were NOT familiar with the First Amendment of the Constitution ("whatever THAT is!"), while others say it is "outdated."

-- From "Notable & Quotable: Unfree Speech on Campus" posted at Wall Street Journal 10/22/15

. . . The William F. Buckley Jr. Program at Yale recently commissioned a survey from McLaughlin & Associates about attitudes towards free speech on campus. Some 800 students at a variety of colleges across the country were surveyed. The results, though not surprising, are nevertheless alarming. By a margin of 51 percent to 36 percent, students favor their school having speech codes to regulate speech for students and faculty. Sixty-three percent favor requiring professors to employ “trigger warnings” to alert students to material that might be discomfiting. One-third of the students polled could not identify the First Amendment as the part of the Constitution that dealt with free speech. Thirty-five percent said that the First Amendment does not protect “hate speech,” while 30 percent of self-identified liberal students say the First Amendment is outdated. . . .

From "Survey: 49% of College Students Feel ‘Intimidated’ When Expressing Beliefs Different From Professors" by Barbara Hollingsworth, 10/27/15

The vast majority (95 percent) of students surveyed said that the issue of free speech is “important” to them, and 87 percent agree that listening to those with whom they disagree has educational value.

However, despite their strong support for free speech, a majority (51 percent) of students favor on-campus speech codes even though only one in 10 believes that colleges should regulate speech even more than they do now.

More than half (52 percent) of the students surveyed think that their college or university should forbid certain people with a history of “hate speech” from speaking on campus even though the same percentage also believes that the First Amendment does not make an exception for speech that some consider “hateful”.

And nearly three-quarters of student respondents (72 percent) favor disciplinary action for “any student or faculty member on campus who uses language that is considered racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise offensive.”

From "College Students Say Campus Is Too PC, But Also Love Trigger Warnings" by Blake Neff, Reporter, Daily Caller 10/26/15

The survey also found that a whopping 63 percent of students support the use of “trigger warnings” by their professors in class. Triggers warnings are preemptive warnings given prior to some material (such as a discussion of racism) so that students can avoid being “triggered” and experiencing emotional trauma.

While a majority of respondents correctly said that the First Amendment protects hate speech just as it does other speech, a substantial 35 percent minority said otherwise, believing the First Amendment does nothing to protect hate speech. Some 21 percent of students even said the First Amendment is an “outdated” amendment that needs to be changed.

Unsurprisingly, there are differences among respondents based on their political leanings. Self-described liberals are three times as like (30 percent v. 10 percent) to describe the First Amendment as “outdated,” and 56 percent of them said their school newspaper should ban political cartoons that criticize certain religions and ethnic groups, while only 38 percent of conservatives felt the same way. Conservatives, though, are slightly more likely to support blocking speakers with a history of hate speech.

From "Ben Carson wants the government to monitor bias on college campuses. Can it?" by Philip Bump, Washington Post 10/26/15

Dr. Ben Carson, currently running in second for the Republican presidential nomination, told NBC's Chuck Todd on Sunday that he supports a system under which the government would investigate allegations of "extreme bias" on college campuses.

"The way that works," Carson explained, "is you invite the students at the universities to send in their complaints. And then you investigate." He later added, "It's not a violation of the 1st Amendment, because all I'm saying is taxpayer funding should not be used for propaganda. It shouldn't be."

At the end of that part of his conversation with Todd, Carson explained why he thought this was so important.

"[Y]ou have to be able to look at things from both sides," he said. "You have to be able to evaluate things in a very clear way. And if you're just always looking at things from one point of view, I don't think you're well-educated."

From "It’s Free Speech Week, and why some colleges hate it" by Hoppy Kercheval, West Virginia Metro News 10/29/15

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) reports at least 240 instances within the last decade where students and/or faculty made concerted efforts to block speakers because they thought their views objectionable.

Just last week, the invitation to conservative author Suzanne Venker to speak at Williams College in Massachusetts was rescinded by the student group that invited her because other students objected to her controversial views on feminism. . . .

The First Amendment Center’s Gene Policinski said the political correctness of college campuses is depriving students of a valuable part of their education. “Eliminating the serendipity of discovering other viewpoints or the intellectual challenge of confronting persuasive views that differ from our own drains both the meaning and value of free speech.”

From "Free Speech suffers another setback" by Ashe Schow, Washington Examiner 10/29/15

Free speech has suffered a lot of setbacks in recent years. College campuses are setting up "free speech zones" that limit where students can express their opinions without the risk of offending their more thin-skinned classmates. Expressing an opinion online or telling a joke that's misinterpreted can actually get someone fired.

. . . almost any speech that anyone doesn't like can be brought for disciplinary action. Northwestern University professor Laura Kipnis learned that the hard way earlier this year when she was accused of violating the anti-discrimination law known as Title IX because she wrote an article critical of campus "paranoia."

The only way to stop the attacks on free speech is to stand up and refuse to be bullied. College campuses need to stop giving in to the most easily offended students, and organizations need to make clear that they will not stand down in face of adversity. Opinions that are merely unpopular (conservative students know this far too well) should not be shut down.

Deny God, or Fail, Texas Teacher Tells Students

The Katy (Texas) Independent School District apologized to West Memorial Junior High School parents for a seventh-grade teacher giving an exam to students where the correct answer was “God is only a myth,” and the incorrect answer was “God is fact or opinion.”  12-year-old student Jordan Wooley testified at the Board of Education meeting Monday night, “Today, I was given an assignment in school that questions my faith and told me that God was not real.”
“[The exam was] intended as an exercise to encourage critical thinking skills and dialogue by engaging students in an exercise wherein they identified statements as fact, opinion, or common assertion and was not intended to question or challenge any student’s religious beliefs as reported by some media outlets.”

"I said it was fact or opinion," [Jordan Wooley] said, adding she answered that way because "based on my religion and based on what I think and believe, I do not think it was a common place assertion."

Jordan said her reading teacher said both her answers were wrong and that she had to admit God wasn't real.

"It was really confusing to me at first because I didn't really know what to do, so the first thing I did was tell my mom," Jordan said.

"That a kid was literally graded against her faith in God in a classroom," said [mother Chantel] Wooley who questioned who would want that to be known.

Jordan said the assignment was in fact graded, so she would have had to contradict her faith in order to pass.

[Jordan Wooley said,] “When I tried to argue she [the teacher] told me to prove it and I tried to offer things such as the Bible and stories that I’ve read before from people who have died and went to Heaven, but have come back and told their stories.”

Wooley says the discussion became a heated classroom argument that prompted one child to slam her books on her desk and another student to go home crying. When students asked the teacher why they were led to believe that God “is true if he is untrue,” Wooley says, the teacher told students to ask their pastors.

A furious Chantel Wooley, whose family is Methodist, filed a complaint with her daughter’s principal Monday afternoon and then she allowed her daughter to report her complaint to the Katy school board hours later. She told ABC affiliate KTRK that the by writing that God is not real the teacher — who has not been identified — “infringed” on her child’s “rights.”

“In New York, California, Vermont, the liberal states, I could totally see this as happening,” Wooley told KRIV. “But in Houston, Texas, where it’s red, white, and blue, and stars all over, and God bless the USA, and ‘Don’t Mess With Texas’, you know, Texas is messing with my kid.”

Acclaimed gymnastics coach, Patricia Hermann, operating at facilities in the Chicago suburbs of Hanover Park, Hoffman Estates, Mount Prospect and Roselle, was arrested at her home in Schaumburg by police on felony charges of sexually molesting two minor girls at a hotel in Georgia while they were at a competition event trip months ago.

Patricia Hermann, 48, has been charged with sexual battery of a minor and aggravated sexual battery of a minor, according to Cobb County (Ga.) Police Sgt. Dana Pierce. The alleged abuse of two disabled girls happened on a trip to Georgia between late April and early May, authorities said.

Hermann is being held without bond at the Cook County Jail, according to Cook County sheriff’s spokeswoman Sophia Ansari. Her extradition status was not immediately known Tuesday morning.

Hermann is founder and CEO of Elite Stars, an athletic program for individuals with special needs based in northwest suburban Schaumburg, according to her biography on the Elite Stars website.

Cobb County Sheriff's Sgt. Dana Pierce said the offenses occurred between April 30 and May 3, when Hermann and members of the Elite Stars gymnastics team were staying at a Kennesaw, Georgia, hotel while taking part in a competition.

"When they returned home, the two female athletes separately told their parents that the head coach of Elite Stars, Patricia Hermann, physically and sexually abused them in a hotel room during the trip," Pierce said Monday.

A warrant issued Oct. 22 states that during interviews at the DuPage County [Illinois] Child Advocacy Center, the girls -- ages 13 and 10 -- described Hermann making physical contact with intimate parts of their bodies. Each claim was corroborated by another minor who was staying in the same room, according to the warrant.

The alleged sexual abuse happened between late April and early May at a hotel in Kennesaw, which is outside Atlanta, Pierce said. Participants in the Elite Stars program had been in Georgia for a gymnastics competition, the sergeant said.

After they returned home, two girls in their early teens with cognitive disabilities told their parents separately that Hermann had abused them, Pierce said. Law enforcement agencies in Illinois helped with the investigation, Pierce said.

'Minion of Satan' Defied by Florida County Official

Representatives of every religion, and even atheists, have been allowed to give invocations at Lake County (Florida) Board meetings because, as Chairman Jimmy Conner explains, “It’s the law.  They opened without being disruptive, and we welcomed them.”  However, Conner says the Board is drawing the line at a self-described "minion of Satan."

It began with an email Stevens sent to the Commission on Tuesday October 20, 2015, citing the U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowing prayer at government meetings. In it, Stevens asks that he be allowed to “give a Satanic invocation” in Lake County. He claims his invocation would be “solemn and respectful in tone” and “invite lawmakers to reflect upon shared ideas and common ends."  FOX 35 asked Stevens why he wants to give a Satanic invocation.

"Satanism, that is the boogie man for Christianity, it’s about performance art, it’s the thing that was going to get the most attention, and I like the attention,” he explained. “The attention draws eyes to the cause. At least maybe I could get some people thinking that maybe this is not a good idea, 'Maybe I don't want to spend a couple hundred thousand taxpayer dollars money that could be spent feeding little kids.' Instead, they are going to fight a militant which is guaranteed me in the law by the Fourteenth Amendment."

If a legal battle erupts, Chairman Conner said, the group called The Liberty Council will represent the Commission on this issue, at no cost to Lake County taxpayers.

But commission Chairman Jimmy Conner said he has no plans to accept the "over-the-top" request.

Pro-lifers Muzzled — Maine City Must Pay $56,500

As a result of a consent judgment approved by Judge Nancy Torresen of the U.S. District Court in Portland, Maine, the city of Portland will pay legal fees of pro-lifers who were barred from public property near the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic by an unconstitutional ordinance.
“This judgment is significant because it is a formal and binding legal recognition that the city of Portland violated the plaintiffs’ First Amendment rights through its ‘buffer zone’ ordinance.

The city of Portland has settled a lawsuit filed by anti-abortion activists challenging an ordinance that established a 39-foot no-protest zone around a clinic providing abortions.

The suit alleged that the ordinance, responsible for creating the buffer zone around a Planned Parenthood location's entrance, violated their free speech rights. A 2014 U.S. Supreme Court ruling established that a similar no-protest zone in Massachusetts was in violation of free speech rights.

The Portland City Council repealed the ordinance in question soon after, but a judge determined that protesters could still seek damages for when the buffer zone was in effect.

Jessica Grondin, spokeswoman for the city of Portland, said the City Council “acted swiftly” by repealing the city ordinance at its first meeting after the Supreme Court ruled in the Massachusetts case.

An attorney for the activists – Daniel and Marguerite Fitzgerald of Shapleigh and their children and Richmond resident Leslie Sneddon – said last year, after the city repealed its buffer zone ordinance, that they wanted to continue the federal court litigation against the city to set a precedent.

From "High court voids abortion clinic protest-free zone" by Mark Sherman, Associated Press 6/26/14

The Supreme Court unanimously struck down the 35-foot protest-free zone outside abortion clinics in Massachusetts Thursday [June 2014], declaring it an unconstitutional restraint on the free-speech rights of protesters.

While the court was unanimous in the overall outcome, [Chief Justice John] Roberts joined with the four liberal justices to strike down the buffer zone on narrower grounds than the other, more conservative justices wanted.

In a separate opinion, Justice Antonin Scalia criticized Roberts’ opinion as carrying forward “this court’s practice of giving abortion-rights advocates a pass when it comes to suppressing the free-speech rights of their opponents.”

Scalia said state and local governments around the country would continue to be able to “restrict antiabortion speech without fear of rigorous constitutional review.” Joined by Justices Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas, Scalia dissented from the Colorado decision and said Thursday he would have overturned it.

From "Judge dismisses most of lawsuit over since-repealed abortion clinic buffer zone" by Seth Koenig, Bangor Daily News Staff 10/27/14

A federal judge on Monday declared most aspects of a lawsuit against the city of Portland moot, pointing out that the abortion clinic buffer zone being challenged in the lawsuit was repealed by the city months ago.

But U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Torresen stopped short of dismissing the lawsuit in its entirety, leaving alive a motion by the plaintiffs, a group of anti-abortion protesters, to seek nominal damages from the city for the period of time in which they weren’t allowed to demonstrate near the clinic on Congress Street.

City officials and Planned Parenthood representatives said the buffer zone protected the civil rights of patients to access health care services, and they accused the anti-abortion demonstrators of being intimidating and belligerent to individuals approaching the facility.

The protesters argued the buffer zone infringed upon their constitutionally protected right to free speech. The demonstrators said allegations of aggressive behavior were overblown, as evidenced by the fact that police never issued them any summonses for impeding public ways or disorderly conduct.

Abortionists' 14 Baby Parts in Car, Police Seize

Dr. Michael Arthur Roth of West Bloomfield, Michigan is being investigated on a number of fronts after police discovered fourteen jars of aborted fetus remains in his trunk after he struck a live child with his car.  State authorities raided his home and offices for evidence as he may be charged with providing illegal abortions.

The investigation was launched after the doctor was involved in a traffic accident Oct. 1 on Orchard Lake Road, according to West Bloomfield Deputy Chief Curt Lawson.

"We took [his vehicle] back to the police department and later, we went back to the vehicle at the request of the individual we’re investigating, to retrieve some items," Lawson said. "At that point, that led us to obtain a search warrant to further search. That's when the bottles and evidence were found in the trunk area of the vehicle."

Lawson said the possible human tissue and drugs were found in 13 small containers and one larger one. Lawson said police took the potential human tissue to the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office.

From "Police Find 14 Containers of Human Tissue in Abortion Doctor’s Car" by Morgan Chalfant, Washington Free Beacon 10/14/15

The doctor’s car was impounded two weeks ago when he struck and seriously injured a child in Orchard Lake, Michigan. Last week, police obtained a warrant to search the car for its “black box” data recorder. They then discovered the human tissue and medical supplies.

Roth’s practice, the Novi Laser and Aesthetic Center, was evicted from its office space last year. The practice touted its “safe” and “reliable” medical services.

“At the office of Dr. Michael A. Roth, our office philosophy is to provide safe, complete, convenient and reliable services within a comfortable atmosphere. With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Roth strives to provide the best possible care for his patients,” a web page for the doctor reads.

Roth has a history of malpractice allegations related to abortion practices.

From "Police search home of Michigan doctor after finding what seems to be fetus parts in car trunk" by Cody Derespina, 10/15/15

Roth is well known to pro-life groups in Michigan, including one which has posted at least six malpractice complaints and judgments lodged against Roth from 1988 to 2015, some involving home abortions that led to alleged complications and allegedly botched procedures that later necessitated hysterectomies.

A state health inspector found during a January 2002 check that Roth’s drug-control license had expired more than 20 years previously and resulted in Roth being placed on professional probation for six months, fined $15,000 and barred from performing abortions outside of a clinical setting.

He also has been sanctioned for shoddy record-keeping and improprieties in prescribing medication, and in 2012 was fined $2,000 and sanctioned by a state disciplinary committee for a range of violations.

From "Police Allegedly Find Aborted Fetuses In Abortionist’s Car" by Rachel Stoltzfoos, Reporter, Daily Caller 10/14/15

The New York Times quoted Roth in a 1988 story about the ethics of abortions based solely on the sex of a fetus. “I have no ethical problems with it,” Roth told TheNYT. “Absolutely not. I think that abortion should be available on demand.”

Roth has a history of alleged malpractice, public records obtained by show. He agreed to pay $200,000 for botching an abortion, and another in which the Michigan Board of Medicine fined him $2,000 for violating public health code in two abortions and for perforating a woman’s uterus.

Roth was evicted from his office space twice, records show, and as of December, 2014, was reportedly out of business. His wife filed for a restraining order against him as they went through a divorce in 2005.

Churches Sue Calif. ObamaCare: Forced Abortion $$

Three churches are suing Michelle Rouillard, the director of the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC), in federal court for First Amendment violations of requiring churches to pay for surgical abortions via the ObamaCare-forced employer health insurance.  Last year, the DMHC reclassified abortion as a “basic health service,” thus mandating all heath insurance coverage to include elective abortion as if it's a medical ailment.
“Because Obamacare requires health insurance coverage, and the California mandate requires abortion coverage in any health plan, these churches are truly left with no way to opt out of paying for abortions.  What’s absurd, though, is that the same government that rightfully does not require California churches to pay for contraceptive coverage requires them to pay for elective abortion coverage.”

-- From "California Churches File Lawsuit to Fight Mandatory Abortion Funding in Health Plans" by Lauretta Brown, 10/19/15

The California DMHC stated in an August 2014 letter to seven insurance companies that they were required to include elective abortions in their health plans with no exceptions. The letter came in response to complaints after Santa Clara University and Loyola Marymount University excluded elective abortion from their employee insurance policies on religious grounds.

The letter cites California’s Constitution and the 1975 Knox-Keene Health Care Service Plan Act, which “requires the provision of basic health care services” in justification of their abortion mandate.

The lawsuit states that the churches have been searching for a way to “provide health insurance coverage to their employees in a way that does not also cause them to pay for abortions,” as they believe that “abortion kills an innocent human life.”

The lawsuit also charges that the DMHC “realizing that Plaintiffs and others have sincerely held religious beliefs against paying for or providing coverage for abortion,” still “encouraged the insurers to hide these changes by informing them that they may ‘omit any mention of coverage for abortion services in health plan documents.’”

From "California Forces Churches to Fund Abortions, Churches Refuse to Comply and File Lawsuit" by Steven Ertelt, 10/16/15

ADF filed the lawsuit, Foothill Church v. Rouillard, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California on behalf of Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The Shepherd of the Hills Church in Porter Ranch.

Last year, ADF and Life Legal Defense Foundation filed formal complaints with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services against DMHC regarding California’s mandate and its violation of federal conscience law. Those came on the heels of a complaint filed directly with DMHC, which responded by affirming its decision to force all plans to cover all abortions without any explanation as to how that decision squares with the Constitution and contrasting federal law.

From "Churches forced to cover abortion file federal complaint against Calif. agency" posted at Alliance Defending Freedom 10/9/14 (last year)

The complaint explains, “DMHC is an arm of the State of California and purports to be interpreting and applying the law of California, a state that receives billions of taxpayer dollars…. California accepted those funds with full knowledge of the requirements of the Weldon Amendment, but it has chosen to ignore this law. The need to remedy this discrimination is urgent because it is immediately depriving Complainants of a health plan that omits elective abortions.”

“The DMHC created this abortion mandate in response to political pressure from the abortion lobby,” said LLDF Legal Director Catherine Short. “DMHC would have us believe that, while the Legislature exempted these churches from the state’s contraceptive coverage mandate, it nonetheless intended to force them to cover all abortions under the rubric of ‘basic health care.’ This move was a pure power play, and we trust that the Department of Health and Human Services will take the necessary steps to bring the state into compliance with federal law.”

“Forcing a church to be party to elective abortion is one of the utmost-imaginable assaults on our most fundamental American freedoms,” said ADF Senior Counsel Casey Mattox. “California is flagrantly violating the federal law that protects employers from being forced into having abortion in their health insurance plans. No state can blatantly ignore federal law and think that it should continue to receive taxpayer money.”

From "Churches war with state over religious freedom" by Bob Unruh, World Net Daily 10/19/15

Evidence that Rouillard was specifically targeting churches, the complaint says, was demonstrated by the fact that the mandate “does not apply to health benefit plans offered by the California Public Employees Retirement System and other policies.”

“Defendant imposed the mandate with full knowledge that it would coerce religious employers and churches like plaintiffs to violate their sincerely held religious beliefs.”

[The complaint] cites violations of the First Amendment and creates a pages-long list of damages, including chilling religious exercise, a government-imposed coercion regarding religious beliefs and exposing the plaintiffs them to damages and penalties.

“Defendant issued the mandate to suppress the religious exercise of plaintiffs and other similarly situated churches and religious employers,” it states.

Arizona School Sex-laden Quiz Exposed by Students

The Phoenix Union High School District claims it is investigating an unnamed teacher now on leave after being caught testing about 100 students aged 14 to 18 on their sexual proclivities.  The 200-question quiz was said to determine character and personality traits at Betty Fairfax High School in Laveen, Arizona, but after kids tipped off their parents, the school administration is now pressing students to talk to their principal rather than squealing to their parents or the media.

A Phoenix high school teacher has been placed on leave after assigning a personality quiz that asked questions about sex, wife-swapping and other personal topics.

Dozens of students at Betty Fairfax High School received the 200-question quiz. The self-scoring survey had questions ranging from "Are you irritable sometimes?" to "do you prefer ordinary sex?"

The Betty Fairfax principal sent an apology letter to parents calling the quiz inappropriate and offensive. District officials say the survey was not approved and policies were not followed.

“It is regrettable it happened,” district spokesman Craig Pletenik told Phoenix CBS station KPHO. “We apologize to our students for being exposed to that. We apologize to our parents that something like this was given to four classes at the school.”

Pletenik said the teacher did not submit the survey to district officials for approval.

Karina Vega told KNXV that her 15-year-old son was so embarrassed by the quiz that he wouldn’t repeat the questions.

The personality survey was given to juniors and seniors in two psychology classes and freshmen and sophomores in two AVID classes, which are designed to help students improve their study skills and get them on track for college.

Some of the 200-plus questions were obviously geared toward determining personality traits and career interests, but others were shocking, including:
Do you prefer ordinary sex?
Do you watch pornographic videos?
Would you go to a wife-swapping party?
Have you ever felt the urge to kill someone?
The teacher, who we are not identifying because he has not been charged with a crime and is going through the district’s due process procedures, reportedly left the survey for a substitute teacher to distribute.

Also read the extent of sexualization in America's public schools:  It flows from the top, including President Obama's demand for communal nudity in schools by forcing the Gay Agenda on schools using taxpayer dollars; and it comes from elite educators who teach kids how to be homosexual including teaching kindergartners about sex change as well as homosexual teachers indoctrinating 8-year-olds, and teachers training pre-teens in masturbation; and schools even hire abortionists and sex workers to teach sex education, while judges rule abstinence education illegal, so it's no surprise that this public school sexualization is making criminals of children nationwide.

Birth Control Device Hazardous: Gov't Wrong Again

In 2002, the federal FDA approved Essure, a device consisting of metal coils and other synthetic materials designed to be permanently implanted into the fallopian tubes of healthy women in order to sterilize them.  After years of negative health effects by thousands of women, the FDA is reconsidering the safety of this device produced by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
"This is a high priority issue for the agency.  The FDA plans to review the findings of this study, along with the latest medical literature on the Essure device . . ."

-- From "Essure Sterilization Device Causes 'Serious Safety Concern': Study" by Maggie Fox, NBC News 10/14/15

Dr. Art Sedrakyan of Weill Cornell Medicine in New York and colleagues analyzed data from 8,048 women who got Essure implants and compared them to 44,278 who had standard surgery to block or "tie" their fallopian tubes between 2005 and 2013 in New York State.

"A more than 10-fold higher occurrence of reoperation during the first year following Essure-based surgery is a serious safety concern," the team wrote in their report.

"And that surgery is likely to be much more complicated than the laproscopic approach that they should be considering."

The FDA is not considering pulling the device off the market, but will determine whether extra warnings should be added.

From "Essure sterilization method under fire" by Elizabeth Cohen, Senior Medical Correspondent, CNN 9/27/15

From November 2002 through May 2015, more than 5,000 women complained to the Food and Drug Administration about the sterilization device, saying it caused problems including unintended pregnancies, stillbirths and debilitating pain and bleeding. On Thursday, the FDA held an all-day hearing on Essure, taking testimony from patients and experts, and promising to announce next steps in the near future.

. . . [Kristiana] Burrell, who also has three stepchildren, said she became pregnant while using the Essure device, even though at the time she was also using a back-up method of birth control.

That baby, whom she and her husband named Ariel Grace, was born in June, nearly three months early. She never took a breath.

Burrell said her obstetrician blamed Essure for the stillbirth, saying the device's coil ruptured her amniotic sac, causing Burrell to go into labor prematurely. She said she now needs a hysterectomy because the device has perforated her uterus.

From "Essure Birth Control Implant and Reoperation Need" by Randy Dotinga, HealthDay Reporter (posted at WebMD) 10/13/15

Sterilization with Essure (called hysteroscopic sterilization) does offer benefits compared to other kinds of procedures, Sedrakyan team said, and it's not clear how many of the reoperations were required due to serious medical problems.

Essure procedures were more expensive (a median of $7,800 compared to $5,100) than surgical procedures, the researchers said. And 30 days after the procedure, the odds of a major medical complication were lower for Essure procedures than for surgery.

However, 2 percent of Essure patients required reoperations later on compared to just 0.2 percent of surgical patients. The difference remained after the researchers adjusted their statistics to account for age and other health problems.

From "F.D.A. Panel Weighs Complaints on Essure Contraceptive Implant" by Sabrina Tavernise, New York Times 9/24/15

A panel of experts convened by the Food and Drug Administration excoriated the manufacturer of a contraceptive device for not collecting data that they say could have helped predict risks for women. . . .

Women told of autoimmune problems such as eczema, lupus, celiac disease, of cysts, abscesses and tumors, of severe fatigue and losing control of their bowels, and of odysseys through the health care system in search of diagnoses. Many women have sued the company. The company’s supporters say it is not clear what share of those problems, if any, were caused by the device.

Perhaps most troubling was an account by Gabriella Avina, who said she had taken part in the original clinical trials and had worked for the company, explaining the device to women when it first came on the market. . . . She was found to have celiac disease, a thyroid disorder and myasthenia gravis, illnesses that required multiple hospitalizations, chemotherapy and transfusions.

. . . Bayer continued to stand by the device, saying its safety “is supported by more than a decade of science, with more than 10,000 women studied.” . . . It estimates that a million Essure devices have been distributed around the world, about 60 percent of them in the United States.
