One Marie Stopes employee refused to comply with their anti-patient protocols and threatened to expose their behaviour. He received racist comments at work along with bullying, before being given false charges of sexual assault leading to a high profile crown court trial in March 2009 with the attendant media frenzy.
- Their medical practices are shocking
Former employees have testified that the abortion industry is a money driven business. Once you have a license it is just money all the way. You don’t pay taxes because you are a charity, you employ vulnerable doctors and nurses at cheap rates and exploit vulnerable girls from Ireland, Scotland and England. The managers make huge bonuses, go on expensive skiing holidays, buy designer clothes and shoes and watch porn during working hours and organise sex theme parties. Medical decisions are taken by non-medical managers. Employees are forced to counter sign consent forms without having seen the patient and often in advance. Employees have been forced to anaesthetise against the protocols of the Royal College and they told their employees that the GMC and Royal Colleges were in their pockets. In Ealing, West London, Marie Stopes have ambulances regularly called to the abortion centre (4 in a 40 day time period in 2013), as they arrive to deal with the issue of botched abortions. An Irish woman died in the same centre in January 2012, shortly afterwards, Dr Phanuel Dartey was struck off the General Medical Register in Britain for almost killing a woman in the same centre. Another Marie Stopes employee performed botched surgery on five patients after claiming he could revolutionise their sex lives.
- They boast about providing illegal abortions all around the world
At a conference in London in 2007, Paul Cornellisson boasted how Marie Stopes promotes illegal abortion all around the world. Marie Stopes are happy to provide abortions breaking the laws of many different countries.
- The British taxpayer supports their work to the tune of millions of pounds every year
Groups such as Marie Stopes International are provided millions of pounds of funding from the British Government. MSI operate in China and show no signs of opposition to the one child policy and seem to operate under the policy. The head of Marie Stopes received £290,000 salary in 2014.
Marie Stopes International (MSI) reports an income of £250 million (not just from the UK). Thirty three employees of MSI earned between £60,000 to £100,000 a year. Britain continues to pay for an export abortion all around the world.
A former administrator at the Raleigh abortion clinic in Brixton stated:
“The more people you got booked in for terminations the better your bonus would be; then there were the consultations…girls would come in expecting to discuss it with a doctor but the clinic would use nurses because it would save time…the nurses would get them over with within ten minutes… I was under pressure to ensure people had their terminations there so that Marie Stopes could keep the money.” (The Mail on Sunday 4/9/05)
- Some of their clinics are still in the backstreets
Marie Stopes in Fallowfield, Manchester is still located in the backstreets. Dr Rachel McNair has researched abortionists, and concluded, “There are plenty of horror stories from pre-Roe days… if those horror stories have not stopped, then perhaps it’s not the legal nature of abortion that’s the problem. Maybe it’s the nature of abortion, period.” Making abortions legal didn’t magically make them safe overnight. What was happening in the backstreets, just became normal.
- Their founder was a eugenicist
Marie Stopes sent love poems to Adolf Hitler in August 1939, advocated compulsory sterilisation for the ‘unfit’ and cut her own son out of her will because he married a girl who wore glasses. She also wrote marital advice in a book called ‘Married Love’ despite having a highly dysfunctional marriage herself.
Dr Marie Stopes was a founder of the eugenics movement and believed that disabled people should not be allowed to be born. In 1920 Stopes demanded “the sterilisation of those totally unfit for parenthood be made an immediate possibility, indeed made compulsory.” Far before Hitler’s Germany, Stopes was calling for the mandatory sterilisation of parents who were diseased, addicted or guilty of anti-social behaviour.
In 1935, Stopes attended the International Conference for Population science in Berlin held under Nazi auspices. Here, she called for selective breeding in order to achieve racial purity. In 1939, she wrote to Adolf Hitler, sending some of her love poems:
“Dear Herr Hitler, Love is the greatest thing in the world: so will you accept from me these (poems) that you may allow the young people of your nation to have them?”
It is well known that Hitler did in fact bring into action many ideas that Stopes had been proposing for decades. In 1952, Stopes was involved in the creation of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, believing that no society, “should allow the diseased, the racially-negligent, the careless, the feeble-minded, and the very lowest and worst members of the community to produce innumerable tens of thousands of warped and inferior infants.”
In Radiant Motherhood (1920), Marie Stopes called for the sterilization of those totally unfit for parenthood to be made an immediate possibility, indeed made compulsory. In the control of Parenthood (1920), Marie Stopes said that “I would legislate compulsory sterilization of the insane, feeble minded… revolutionaries… half castes.”
- Marie Stopes routinely breaks the laws of Nigeria
Abortion is illegal in Nigeria and attracts jail sentence of up to 14 years imprisonment however Marie Stopes International (MSI), IPAS, Planned Parenthood (the biggest names in the abortion industry abroad) have established in Nigeria under the guise of Family planning and secretly performing abortions which is against our Nigerian law and the culture of the land.
Pro-life volunteers visited Marie Stopes International Clinic on various occasions in their below office address at
Block 223, Federal Housing Authority Estate
Karu Phase 1 (The Street opposite Nigerian Customs Estate Gate)
These volunteers pretended that they needed abortions. The first volunteer is a young man of 25 years while the second is a woman in her early 40’s.
The first volunteer asked to see the doctor to discuss confidential matter. He was directed to a young lady doctor and their conversation went as below:
1st Volunteer: My girlfriend is pregnant and we are seeking a place she can get an abortion
Doctor: We don’t perform abortions here.
1st Volunteer: But my friend referred me to this place. He said his girlfriend got an abortion here
Doctor: If your girlfriend is actually pregnant, why did you not come with her?
1st Volunteer: She is very young and does not want publicity.
Doctor: (after hesitation) How old is the pregnancy? Because we can only do the abortion if the pregnancy is less than 3 months.
1st Volunteer: I think the pregnancy is about 3 months.
Doctor: Then go and bring her so we can do it quickly.
1st Volunteer: Thank you Doctor, please may I know your name?
Doctor: Just call me doctor!
1st Volunteer left Marie Stopes International clinic disappointed that MSI actually performs abortions in Nigeria and quite secretly. He went on to say that he was further disappointed that such a pretty young lady doctor was involved in abortions.
A second volunteer, a woman in her early 40’s visited MSI on another day, pretended that she was a married woman with four (4) children, pregnant for the fifth child and was confused on what to do.
The MSI doctor first stated that they do not perform abortions as it was illegal but when she felt that this woman (volunteer) was real she offered to help her with the abortion. The MSI doctor explained the details of the cost of the procedure which is N13,000 (about $80) to the woman. She went on to explain that the cost included scan which they needed to do to know where the baby is located before evacuation– whether it is in the fallopian tube (ectopic pregnancy) or if baby is in the womb. Our volunteer said she would go home and get the money then return the following day for the procedure.
MSI has formed franchises and partnerships with some Family planning organizations in Nigeria such as Society for Family Health and majorly provides them with abortion services.
MSI established in Nigeria in the year 2009 and they stated on their Nigerian website that ‘MSI has been meeting the sexual and reproductive needs of Nigerian women, have averted 134,855 unsafe abortions as a result of family planning services in the year 2013, formed 160+ social franchisee’. Averting 134, 855 unsafe abortions as a result of Family planning services could mean MSI’s use of abortions as Family Planning in Nigeria.
They also went further to state their services are as follows
- Family planning
- Maternal health
- HIV / STIs
- Safe abortion and Post abortion care
MSI’s service of ABORTIONS in Nigeria whether SAFE or UNSAFE is very illegal and breaks the law against abortion in Nigeria. Abortion is abortion and there is nothing like ‘safe abortion’. This term is being used by these foreign pro-abortion companies to lobby for the legalization of abortion business in countries where abortion is illegal. Abortion kills the growing child and haunts the mothers when they realize their pregnancies were human and they killed their own children.
We appeal to sponsors and Management of MSI, IPAS, Planned Parenthood to desist from killing our unborn children through their abortion practices, misleading the poor ignorant women of our society in crisis pregnancy with the terms ‘my body, my choice’, safe abortion.
