Delaware state officials have launched an investigation of two Planned Parenthood locations after reports of unsanitary and unsafe conditions. “Planned Parenthood should no longer be self-regulated,” says a former employee who describes herself as radically pro-abortion:
The state Division of Professional Regulation has launched a new investigation into the conduct of several licensed medical professionals at Planned Parenthood of Delaware . . .
Surgical abortions have been halted for now at the Wilmington and Dover offices, Lytle-Barnaby said, but outpatient medical abortions continue at both sites. Training for new staff is under way, she said. . . .
At least two former employees of Planned Parenthood Delaware – both registered nurses – have publicly called for investigations into the operation’s practices.
“What I believe should happen is that Planned Parenthood should no longer be self-regulated,” said Joyce Vasikonis. . . .
Vasikonis describes herself as “radically pro-abortion,” but said she could not continue to work under the conditions she saw. . . .
Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich of Newark could not bear the conditions, either. She worked part time for about three months, kept copious notes, pressed for reforms and resigned last August.
“I cannot continue to work in such an unsafe, unhealthy and hostile environment,” she wrote in her resignation email.
