Police raided the Outpatient Services for Women abortion center in Oklahoma City and arrested Patel. The arrest came after a Operation Rescue filed a five-count complaint against him with the State Attorney General’s office, the Oklahoma Health Department, and the Oklahoma Medical Board.
The complaints were based on documents and medical waste that had been discarded in a publicly-accessible trash receptacle near Patel’s Outpatient Services for Women abortion clinic in Oklahoma City. The material was received by Operation Rescue from an anonymous source on March 18, 2013.
Patel doesn’t face charges related to the rapes or dumping the bodies of abortion babies. Instead, Patel, 62, is accused of obtaining money by false pretenses. Patel lied to women and told them they were pregnant and then put their lives and health at risk by selling them the dangerous RU 486 (mifepristone) abortion pill that has killed dozens and injured thousands of women.
“The outrageous practice of selling abortions to non-pregnant women is actually a fairly common practice among abortionists nationwide,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “As the number of abortions drop, abortionists find themselves in greater competition for every abortion dollar. Every time a woman walks away from an abortion clinic with a negative pregnancy test, it represents about a $500 loss to the abortion business. Telling non-pregnant women that they are actually pregnant for the purpose of selling them abortions is a huge temptation to greedy abortionists who want to keep their profit margins up.”

Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, who is expecting a baby in December, is being denied a request to vote by proxy in the House Democratic Caucus leadership and committee member elections next week—even though her doctor advises she can’t travel to Washington in the late stages of her pregnancy.
The Iraq War veteran, who lost both legs when her helicopter was shot down in 2004, made the request in a letter to fellow Democrats. Her letter was read during a closed-door Democratic Caucus meeting on Thursday. But objections were raised, and the request was denied, with opponents including Democratic Steering and Police Committee cochair Rosa DeLauro of Connecticut and Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.
“Congresswoman DeLauro does not want to set a precedent. There are many meritorious situations where the argument could be made for a waiver, including Congresswoman Duckworth’s. The question is, how do you choose?” said DeLauro spokeswoman Sara Leonardo.
An anonymous Democrat aide reported, “Obviously, [Duckworth’s request] is a very meritorious case, but the slippery-slope argument prevailed.”
The aide noted that the caucus is allowing three members whose Election Day races have not yet been called to be allowed to vote, as if they’ve won reelection already.
“But here you have a woman, a decorated war veteran who is undergoing a high-risk pregnancy, and they can’t suspend the rules,” said the aide.

Elaine Donnelly — Now that voters have disposed of the phony “war on women,” can we talk about real women fighting future wars?
More than 92 percent of active-duty Army women said in a recent official survey that they do not want and would not take direct ground combat (infantry) assignments. Nevertheless, President Obama plans to order women into the combat arms by January 2016.
The Center for Military Readiness has independently obtained and analyzed major research findings so far, and published a 64-page interim report titled “Where’s the Case for Co-Ed Combat?” Respect for military women who have served with courage “in harm’s way” is greater than ever. However, nothing in research findings so far supports the theory that women should be considered interchangeable with men in direct ground combat.
Upper-body strength and endurance are not the only issues of concern, but both are essential for survival and mission accomplishment. In the most physically demanding environments imaginable, it matters that in timed proxy tests simulating ordnance-stowing with 95-pound artillery rounds, less than 1 percent of the men failed, compared with 28 percent of the women.
In another test with progressively heavier weights lifted over the head, 80 percent of men could lift 115 pounds, but less than 9 percent of the women could do the same.
Since fall 2012, 24 female officers have attempted the grueling Marines’ Infantry Officer Course at Quantico, Va. All deserve credit for trying, but only four survived the deliberately difficult first day. Of those, none endured through the entire 13-week course, which involves 20-mile marches and carrying loads of up to 120 pounds.
In 2013, the Marines tried to make three pull-ups mandatory for female basic trainees, but had to suspend the requirement when 55 percent could not meet it. Recent tests have found that on average, men could do almost 16 pull-ups — more than four times as many as the women.

In the 70s feminists sued the government, demanding that women be drafted just as men. The Supreme Court responded that as long as women weren’t in combat, then there was no need for them to be drafted. Thus began the decades long battle to get women in combat, so radical feminists could eventually force women to be drafted. We are now that much closer to that reality as Obama thrusts unwilling women, mother, sisters daughters into the front lines to die where he was too cowardly to go.
