‘Telemed’ Abortions Under Investigation In Iowa

Des Moines, IA – Operation Rescue has been notified in writing that the Iowa Medical Board is now investigating the “care and treatment” practices of abortionist Susan Haskell and Planned Parenthood of the Heartland. The investigation is in response to complaints filed by Operation Rescue Senior Policy Advisor Cheryl Sullenger concerning “Telemed” abortions.

“Telemed” is short for telemedicine, a practice when the patient consults with a physician over the Internet via Skype or other teleconferencing hook-up.

Operation Rescue investigators found that a dozen small Planned Parenthood offices in Iowa were administering the dangerous abortion drug, RU 486, without the patient ever having been personally examined by a physician. Instead, an abortionist briefly addresses abortion patients from a teleconferencing hook up from her office in Des Moines. After explaining the medical abortion process, a button is pushed and an electronic drawer opens that contains the drugs.
