Delaware Abortionist Deemed ‘Danger to the Public’ (3208)

DOVER, Del. — The Delaware State Board of Medical Licensure and Discipline has filed a complaint against local abortionist Timothy Liveright for unsafe and unsanitary conditions in his facility.

During this year alone, Liveright’s procedures at his Planned Parenthood business have sent five women to the emergency room, prompting the board to label him a “clear and immediate danger to the public.”

Two of Liveright’s former employees, Joyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, testified before the Delaware state Senate citing “meat-market style assembly-line abortions” as the reason they quit their jobs.

Vasikonis said the clinic was using instruments on patients that were not sterilized and that operating tables were left soiled and unclean in a rush to move patients through as quickly as possible, WPVI News reported.

“Vile conditions and disregard for the health and well-being of women are problems endemic to the abortion industry,” Susan B. Anthony List's president, Marjorie Dannenfelser, said in a May 31 statement.

Susan B. Anthony List has long been calling for more rigorous inspections of Planned Parenthood, saying that the U.S. abortion industry is wrought with abuse and unsanitary conditions.

“America’s largest abortion provider, Planned Parenthood, claims to be a principle advocate for women’s health. They need to own this problem,” she said.

Oftentimes, clinics do not undergo routine inspections because the Delaware Department of Health and Human Services lacks the manpower to perform them.

“Rather than attack their former employees for exposing Gosnell-like unsafe and unsanitary conditions,” Dannenfelser said, “(Planned Parenthood) should spend their time going through their facilities nationwide in order to get to the root of this problem and protect women.”

The reports come the same week that four abortion facilities in Maryland were closed for similar violations. The Maryland Board of Health found that “the public health, safety or welfare imperatively required emergency actions.”

Maryland state inspectors discovered in March that a woman had died at Associates in OB/GYN Care’s Baltimore facility. The abortionist and staff at the facility were not certified in CPR, and a defibrillator at the clinic did not work.
