In 2009-2010 while working as interns with Operation Rescue, Bud and I worked on various projects. One of those was to compile an accurate updated list of free standing abortion clinics in the US, you can access this data at abortiondocs.com. This project revealed that over 70% of abortion clinics have closed since 1991. While compiling this data, Tara called a Planned Parenthood in Iowa and discovered “telemed abortions.”
Telemed abortion is a process where dangerous abortion pills are dispensed via teleconferencing hook-up. An abortionist sits in front of a webcam and pushes a button to electronically open a drawer in the faraway clinic containing the drugs. A licensed physician never physically examines the woman at anytime.
Operation Rescue did their part in alerting authorities in Iowa and things started happening to change the law there. Shortly after this discovery we went to Iowa and during an interview that I did with Iowa Public Radio Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) revealed that expanding medical abortions into every Planned Parenthood clinic in the country through the use of the “telemed abortion” scheme was part of PPFA’s Strategic Plan for 2015. This according to Operation Rescue would have represented the, “largest expansion of abortion services since Roe v. Wade.” We had no idea where this research would lead but as a result 13 other states have subsequently restricted telemed abortions.
