Total cover-up: Planned Parenthood's health violations sealed by pro-abortion court judge

• by Ethan Huff

Reproductive Health Services (RHS) of Planned Parenthood had earlier requested to have the official "statement of deficiencies" filed by Missouri's Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) officially sealed in order to conceal from the public the horrors that had been taking place at Planned Parenthood's only abortion clinic in Missouri, to which pro-life groups vehemently objected.

But Planned Parenthood has now been granted its wish, as the deficiency report is no longer publicly available – though it was obtained and uploaded to the web by the abortion clinic watchdog group Operation Rescue before Judge Stelzer approved the document's official sealing.

In this Exhibit A are many egregious health violations committed by Planned Parenthood of St. Louis, including:

• a failed pelvic examination of a patient that ultimately led to two failed abortion attempts
• a failed abortion attempt that resulted in the patient becoming septic and requiring hospitalization
• a failed abortion attempt with no report of complications
• failure by Planned Parenthood abortion "doctors" to give informed consent to patients
• failure by Planned Parenthood staff to engage in standard practice, resulting in a patient's hospitalization and status as "critically ill" due to loss of "over two liters of blood" and the need for a "uterine artery embolization"
