Abortion Doc:
Thirty-One
Babies a Day   

A female doctor who performs many of the abortions at the Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in St. Louis has publicly admitted that she destroys the lives of as many as 31 preborn children a day.

Abortionist Colleen McNicholas was profiled in the May issue of Marie Claire magazine.  Writer Kayla Webley portrays McNicholas as a heroine "on the front lines of the abortion wars."

The author applauds the fact that McNicholas is so proficient at her trade that she is able to "terminate 31 pregnancies a day," and quotes her as being "passionate and committed" to her work.

The article confirms that McNicholas performs abortions on a regular basis at the Reproductive Health Services Clinic operated by Planned Parenthood in the Central West End of St. Louis City.

The magazine story also states that McNicholas flies once a month to Wichita to perform abortions at the clinic formerly operated by the late Dr. George Tiller.  Tiller was notorious nationwide for doing grisly late-term abortions on children nearing their birth date.

The Marie Claire article also reveals that McNicholas will begin working at a new clinic in Oklahoma City this month.  McNicholas is quoted as saying:  "I can do one more day.  I can go one more place."

McNicholas is a prime example of the fly-by abortionists murdering unborn children in multiple metropolitan areas.  These physicians have absolutely no physician-patient relationship with the women they "serve."

They fly into a town, do abortions scheduled for that day in assembly-line fashion, and then fly right back out.  They are unavailable to treat the women should complications occur after the abortion, and their concern for their "patients" ends as soon as their jet departs from the latest runway.

McNicholas is actually a doctor at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, where she is also an assistant professor.  She serves on the staff at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Missouri Baptist Hospital.

While pro-abortion interests often complain that women have to drive too far to obtain an abortion, they have no problem whatsoever that these women live hundreds of miles more away from the doctors who are butchering babies in their womb, who are nowhere to be found when there are adverse results to the mother from the procedure.

McNicholas has earned herself a household name in public policy circles in Missouri over the past year.  Last summer she started peforming abortions at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Columbia. 

McNicholas had managed to obtain staff privileges at University Hospital in Columbia, despite the fact that she has no medical practice in mid-Missouri.  That hospital is owned and operated by the University of Missouri.

Those privileges were essential to McNicholas doing her lethal work at the Columbia facility.  A condition of licensure for abortion clinics is that doctors doing abortions must have staff privileges at a nearby hospital.

State legislators were incensed when they learned of the collusion between University Hospital and Planned Parenthood.  State law prohibits the use of state funding, state employees, or state facilities to assist in the performance of abortions.

University Hospital withdrew the privileges granted to McNicholas, and her abortion "care" ended at the Columbia clinic late last year.  She is appealing to the medical staff at the hospital to reinstate her privileges.

McNicholas isn't backing down.  "Those of us who provide abortions are an innovative, creative, and determined bunch--we will continue to find ways to make sure women have access."  Even at the cost of 31 lives a day.

Koster to Support
Appeal of Federal
Bathroom Mandate

Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster has announced he will support an appeal of a federal court decision ordering public schools to open male and female bathrooms to students of the opposite sex.  Koster says his office will file a friend-of-the-court brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to hear an appeal of the decision.

The case involves the Gloucester County School District in eastern Virginia.  In April the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that public school students are legally entitled to access the restrooms, locker rooms, and shower rooms "congruent" with their imaginary "gender identity."

In a split 2-1 decision, the 4th Circuit panel ruled that the school district policy segregating bathrooms according to biological sex violates Title IX of federal education law.  The provisions of Title IX prohibit schools that receive federal funding from discriminating against students based on their gender. 

The decision is the latest example of federal judges imposing their personal opinions on the people of our nation in contradiction to the express language of the law.  Title IX and its regulations specifically state that schools are authorized to have separate restrooms and locker rooms for boys and girls. 

Attorney General Koster announced that his office will submit an amicus brief supporting the position of the Gloucester County School District.  "We believe Missouri school districts are capable of treating all students with dignity and respect while addressing sincerely held privacy concerns.  We intend to support the ability of Missouri school districts to form lawful policy on this issue at the local level...," Koster said.

The Attorney General also stated his view that "President Obama was wrong to dictate a national mandate so quickly and unilaterally."  Koster is referring to recent renegade actions by federal agencies on the issue of bathroom privacy which are completely unsupported by law, regulation, or precedent.

Early this year, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission issued a "guidance" to school districts insisting that they permit students to use bathrooms and locker rooms that reflected their imaginary "gender identity," or risk the loss of federal education dollars.  In May, U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch upped the ante in a bizarre press conference in which she pronounced that "an individual's sex consists of multiple factors, which may not always be in alignment."

Lynch announced the release of a joint edict by the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice and the Office of Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education.   Under that lawless edict, public school authorities must allow students to invade the restrooms, locker rooms, and shower rooms of the opposite sex, or forfeit federal education funding.   Lynch decreed that schools may not adopt "broad generalizations or stereotypes" as to a student's actual gender, and that failure to conform to the policy would constitute the creation of a "hostile [educational] environment."
In his dissent in the Gloucester case, Judge Paul Niemeyer took issue with the reasoning of Attorney General Lynch and her completely bogus interpretation of the law.  "An individual has a legitimate and important interest in bodily privacy such that his or her nude or partially nude body, genitalia, or other private parts are not exposed to persons of the opposite sex."

"Courts have consistently recognized that the need for personal privacy is inherent in the nature and dignity of humankind," Niemeyer continued.  "This unprecedented holding overrules custom, culture, and the very demands inherent in human nature for privacy and safety, which the separation of such facilities is designed to protect."

In response to the Obama Administration's latest exercise of tyranny, an Ohio school district announced last week that it has challenged the unisex bathroom edicts in federal court.  The Highland Local School District has filed suit in U.S. District Court in southern Ohio.  School district officials object not only to allowing students to access "intimate facilities" of the opposite sex, but also to sharing overnight accommodations.

"The Department of Education is trying to strong-arm Highland into complying with a lawless demand to open its [private facilities] to students of the opposite sex," says Jim Campbell, senior counsel of the Alliance Defending Freedom, which is representing the school district in the case.

"Highland faces an impossible choice:  capitulate to the federal government's demands and sacrifice the dignity and privacy of their students; or protect those rights and be stripped of more than a million dollars each year in federal funds devoted to special education programs, lunches for underprivileged children, and educational advancement," Campbell explains.

Parents of students have already filed federal lawsuits against the bathroom mandate in U.S. District Courts in Northern Illinois and Eastern North Carolina.  Parents in those cases are determined to keep boys out of their daughters' showers, changing rooms, and bathroom facilities.  The Virginia case, on the other hand, involves a 16 year-old girl who insists that she is a boy,  and is demanding the right to use the boy's bathroom.
