Planned Parenthood of New York City is a member of the National Abortion Federation. I have the following dirt on them in my files:

****

In 1992, Anne C. sought judicial intervention in procuring her medical records from Planned Parenthood. Her attorney contended that Anne was injured in July 1991 during an abortion at Planned Parenthood through "negligence and medical malpractice." Her attorney noted, "in addition to the absolute right of petitioner to have these records furnished to her attorneys, these records are necessary in preparation of a complaint.... it is believed that Planned Parenthood, by withholding these records, is attempting to delay and thwart petitioner."

Planned Parenthood refusing to hand over records! Gosh! That's a first!

Anne's attorney contended that the records "will reflect the cause of petitioner's damages as well as the names of those persons who may have been responsible for said injuries. There has been an unreasonable delay." Paperwork includes a letter from Planned Parenthood indicating that "to initiate our search" for Anne's records, Planned Parenthood would require, among other things, "Patient's chart number," and indicating that there would be a $20 fee. (Kings County Supreme Court Index No. 24622-92)

****

Marisol C. sued after she underwent an abortion at Planned Parenthood on August 11, 1990. She alleged lack of informed consent, carelessness, negligence, and failure to adhere to standards of care. She suffered serious personal injuries, pain and anguish, and required further medical care. (NY County Supreme Court Index no. 7346/1992, 101971/1993)

The following deficiencies were cited in a 1989 inspection:

A suit by Pamela M. alleging incomplete abortion at Planned Parenthood of New York City. Pamela had undergone a D&C at Planned Parenthood on August 20, 1985. Staff ignored her complaints of severe lower abdominal pain. She returned September 5 for a follow-up exam, and staff failed to fully examine her and correctly diagnose the cause of her continued abdominal pain. Planned Parenthood staff "misdiagnosed plaintiff's condition and advised plaintiff that the surgical procedure had been fully and successfully performed." Pamela was prescribed tetracycline. Pamela "suffered severe dysfunctional uterine bleeding causing her to receive two blood transfusions and be confined to a hospital for a period of 1 1/2 weeks," and was confined to bed for an additional week after her release from the hospital. Pamela was "caused fright, fear, shock and anxiety ... and now suffers from feelings of marked depression brought about by continuing pain, trauma and inability to carry out as before customary and usual routines." (Kings County Supreme Court Index No. 34468/87)

****

Sharon W. alleged that she underwent an abortion by B. Kameh at Planned Parenthood on August 4, 1984. She faulted Kameh with failure to remove the entire placenta, and failure to adequately examine her after abortion. Sharon suffered "vaginal hemorrhage, acute infection, continued vaginal bleeding and pain from the date of the abortion until October 3, 1984 when a dilation and curettage and culdocentesis was performed upon her at the Baptist Medical Center." (Kings County Supreme Court Index No. 24799/86, NY County Supreme Court Index No. 13973/86)

Sherry C. alleged that she underwent an abortion at Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Medical Center on October 8, 1981. She suffered an incomplete abortion. Sherry bled profusely during and after the abortion. She was diagnosed with degenerating decidua and trophoblast, serious infection, and endometritis. Sherry faulted Planned Parenthood with failure to inform her of their negligence, preventing her from seeking other medical attention. Sherry was hospitalized November 13-15, and confined to bed and home for an additional 6 weeks. She also sued for lost wages, concealment of malpractice, and lack of informed consent. (C4039 - NY County Supreme Court Index No. 16422/1983)

****

Sandra H. alleged that she submitted to an abortion at Planned Parenthood on August 14, 1980. She sued for negligence resulting in "severe and serious personal injuries and mental pain and suffering." (NY County Supreme Court Index No. 474/1981, 21854/1981)

****

Victoria R. alleged that she had an abortion and insertion of an IUD at Planned Parenthood in March of 1978. Two weeks later, Victoria experienced "sharp needlelike pains, could not sit down and had a painful discharge." She spoke to the doctor, who told her not to worry. Additional problems developed, so Victoria requested removal of the IUD, "but the doctor told me he could not do it until some future time." Due to the IUD and subsequent infections, Victoria is "unable to give birth." Planned Parenthood would not divulge to her the name of the doctor. (C4040 - NY County Supreme Court Index No. 17333/1981)

Planned Parenthood withholding information? Who woulda thunk it!

****

According to Angela's lawsuit, "following said abortion, plaintiff was told that the fetus had been aborted and/or the pathology specimens of the abortion did not reveal any product of conception." Angela was admitted to a hospital on December 2, where a c-section was performed "for removal of a dead female child." Angela "was rendered sick, sore and disabled; sustained injuries both internal and external, sustained severe shock to her nervous system...was confined to the hospital and bed for a long period of time." (NY County Supreme Court Case 655/76)

****

Jean O. alleging lack of informed consent, and subsequent injury, in a D&C by Dr. Benjamin Campese at Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger Medical Center. The D&C was performed under general anesthesia by on November 20, 1982 at Margaret Sanger Medical Center. Jean underwent the procedure under Campese's recommendation. She faulted him with failure to disclose alternatives and risks. Her lawsuit asserted that "a reasonably prudent person in plaintiff's position would not have undergone the surgery as outlined above if plaintiff had been fully informed." Jean suffered a punctured uterus, internal hemorrhage, and miscarriage of her pregnancy. (NY County Supreme Court Index No. 25164/1983)

****

A 1979 medical malpractice suit filed on behalf of Elizabeth F. alleged personal injury. (NY County Supreme Court Index No. 19873/1979)
