-"Years ago... press release Granite City


Attention: Assignment Editor


  "Years ago…
at least women knew what they were getting with a coat-hanger!

Convicted felon "botches" woman’s abortion behind the $2 million dollar "state of the art" facade of Hope for women. Woman fights for her life on operating table, doctors bring her back to life. On December 3, 2003 a young woman from Missouri seeking a second trimester abortion was rushed across the street to Gateway Regional Hospital that sits 200 feet across from the Midwest’s largest abortion mill, Hope Clinic for Women, in Granite City, IL. They perform between 10,000 and 13,000 abortions a year with price ranges from $400.00 to $2400.00 dollars. They specialize in late-term abortions and no parental consent is needed for underage pregnant girls. The woman was reportedly screaming to hospital employees to "keep Shah and Palmer away from me!" Yogendra Shah and felon Alan Palmer are the two remaining abortionists at this killing facility and both are currently on staff at this hospital. According to the St. Louis Globe Democrat, Palmer was convicted in Nov 1979, fined $5,000, and spent six months incarcerated in prison.

Only last month was it reported that abortionist Darwin Jackson Jr. was removed from Hope Clinic in Granite City, IL due to multiple gross-negligence and malpractice lawsuits from "medical complications" suffered by women during their abortions. This woman suffered a punctured uterus with at least three major arteries being severed at the hands of the abortionist, where she lay profusely bleeding for hours without emergency life sustaining treatment from Hope clinic personnel. An emergency hysterectomy was performed to save her life. Over the course of four days she has been transfused at least five times and is seeking litigation against Palmer and Hope Clinic so that another woman will not have to suffer as she has… This is the fourth documented "botched abortion" at Hope Clinic for Women this year. Not only do these two remaining abortionist, Yogendra Shah and former felon Alan Palmer butcher babies, but they also butcher women. And they get away with it. Where is the outrage from all these women's groups? N.O.W. etc. And where is the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation, or the Health Department? How can so many complaints and lawsuits against this abortion mill and these two abortionists, go un-noticed? The high-awards in botched abortion malpractice lawsuits ..could they possibly have anything to do with the mad exodus of good doctors leaving Southern Illinois because the good doctors can't afford the sky-rocketing cost of malpractice insurance due to the gross negligence of dirty doctors? It is noted that Madison County, Illinois has become a judicial hell-hole.
