Planned Parenthood Nurses to Testify About “Ridiculously Filthy” Abortion Clinic

Two former Planned Parenthood nurses are set to testify before the Delaware state legislature tomorrow about the “ridiculously” unsafe and filthy conditions they saw while working for the nation’s number one abortion business.

Joyce Vasikonis and Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich will testify before the Delaware state Senate to recount the unsafe, unsanitary conditions which led them to quit their jobs. Last month, the women told WPVI-TV ABC News of the “meat-market style of assembly-line abortions” occurring inside the clinic.

“Planned Parenthood is America’s number one abortion business, which in a single year ended the lives of 333,964 children,” said Susan B. Anthony List president Marjorie Dannenfelser. “The standard bearer in Big Abortion cannot claim Gosnell’s ‘house of horrors’ was isolated while their own employees expose them for ‘ridiculously unsafe’ conditions.”

Dannenfleser said that, in Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections and pointed out how Kermit Gosnell, recently convicted of the murder of three newborn infants and the negligent death of one patient, was also employed at Atlantic Women’s Medical Services, a Delaware abortion clinic with offices in Wilmington and Dover, Delaware.

Ellen Barosse, founder of the Delaware pro-life group A Rose and A Prayer, also commented on the expected testimony tomorrow.

“Delaware has the highest abortion rate in the United States. But this is not just a statistic. If what these nurses say is true, real women—especially poor women—are being hurt as Delaware abortion providers provide sub-standard, third-world medical care, regardless of the human cost,” she said. “We are grateful to these brave women for caring enough about their patients for being willing to share their stories.”

Earlier this year, a Delaware Planned Parenthood abortion clinic was closed down after botched five abortions this year alone — but additional reports show the clinic in question was so filthy women were at risk of contracting the AIDS virus.

LifeNews reported on the closing of the clinic but an ABC news report highlights the horrific conditions at the clinic. Two former Planned Parenthood nurses are speaking out about how unsanitary the conditions were at the abortion clinic.

Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich, former employee said, “It was just unsafe. I couldn’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was.”

Werbrich alleges conditions inside the facility were unsanitary.

“He didn’t wear gloves,” said Werbrich.

Another former employee, Joyce Vasikonis told Action News, “They were using instruments on patients that were not sterile.”

The former nurses claim that a rush to get patients in and out left operating tables soiled and unclean.

Werbrich said “It’s not washed down, it’s not even cleaned off. It has bloody drainage on it.”



“They could be at risk of getting hepatitis, even AIDS,” added Vasikonis.

Both of these nurses said, they quit to protect their own medical licenses, stunned by what they called a meat-market style of assembly-line abortions.

Vasikonis said, “I felt I could be held liable if a patient was harmed.”

“Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it’s needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained, said Werbrich.”

In Delaware, abortion clinics are not subject to routine inspections and Mary Peterson from the Delaware Department of Health and Human Services admitted in the report, “I am not going to lie to you, we don’t have the manpower to do routine inspections.”

She claims the state inspected the abortion clinic in October and found no problems.
