Help Put a Front Alley Butcher Out of Business
Please note: this article contains some material which may be offensive to some readers.
Tim Wilson is in a position to put the nation's largest abortionist out of business, but he needs our help! Wilson and his wife have been protesting outside of one of Edward Allred's abortion mills for many years, saving two to five babies weekly. Recently, Wilson searched through Allred's trash (legal in California) and discovered that the medical records of 10,000 of his clients had been discarded. These records are supposed to be kept confidential. Wilson spearheaded a drive to notify each woman by mail, and many of them joined in a class-action suit against Allred. Personnel have jumped ship, leading to a 25% reduction in abortions at one abortion mill. Allred proceeded to sue Wilson. The lawsuit has no merit, but Wilson cannot afford to defend it. If Wilson can fight this lawsuit effectively, he will be able to depose Allred's personnel, leading to more defections. Furthermore, all the time spent in depositions will be time not used to kill babies. These depositions will be reasonable and necessary. But unless Wilson can defend the suit, this will never happen. Allred is responsible for approximately 100,000 abortions annually, so putting him out of business is well worth our while! Wilson is being defended by the Life Legal Defense Foundation.

Aside from this, I request that you join me in praying for Edward Allred and his family.Allred's record of butchery of women
Denise Holmes, 24. Died December 21, 1970, at Allred's Avalon Hospital. Cause of death, according to the coroner, was acute cardiac insufficiency. Her uterus was covered with a yellowish-pink material, and there was hemorrhaging where the placenta had been.

Patricia Chacon, 16. Died March 3, 1984, at Avalon Hospital. The abortionist was either Allred or Leslie Orleans. Ms. Chacon received two second-trimester abortions: the first was incomplete. Cause of death: hemorrhage of the uterine muscles and of the cervix. The coroner found frothy liquid in her lungs and extensive hemorrhaging in her lower pelvis.

Mary Peņa, 43. Died December 16, 1984. Mother of five. Abortionist was either Allred or Ruben Marmet. Done at San Vicente Hospital, Los Angeles. Allred was apparently operating this facility under the license of the former owner. Cause of death was uterine and cervical hemorrhage due to damaged lining and lacerations. An emergency hysterectomy failed to save her life; she died on the operating table. There was an apparent attempted coverup. The coroner found that the victim's flesh had been cut away, and that she also retained five ounces of blood clots, and a 22 week gestational aged baby girl, whose head had been cut off.

Laniece Dorsey, 17. Died February 6, 1986 at Allred's facility Family Planning Associates. After the abortion, Ms. Dorsey slipped into a coma and died at a nearby hospital shortly arterwards. Cause of death was cardiorespiratory arrest due to anesthetic. The coroner found blood clots and hemorrhaging surfaces in her uterus. The surface was also covered with a "thick adherent layer of fibrinous material containing moderate numbers of acute inflammatory infiltrates and red blood cells", and a large number of uterine blood vessels were blocked with blood clots. The coroner further found maroon-purple congestion, hemorrhaging, and fluid in her lungs.

Donna Heim, 20, died at the hands of Mahlon Cannon. Cannon also mistreated seven other women, according to an article in the Los Angeles Times, 6/17/91. Cannon was ordered to turn in his medical license in July, 1991, but not before he went to work for Edward Allred. Cause of death was hypoxia from anesthesia complicated by asthma. An administrative law judge found that Cannon did not do physical exams, take medical histories or administer standard tests. Had he done so in this case, he might have known about the victim's asthma. Cannon also perforated the uterus of another woman, making a hysterectomy necessary, according to the Times article.

Deanna Bell died under the hand of Stephen Lichtenberg, who worked at one of Allred's clinics. She is not related to Becky Bell.
Additional information here, under Edward Allred.
Next, I provide a summary of several health inspections that were made of one of Allred's facilities. Bear in mind as you read that this is just one facility, and that Allred owns a chain of them. His chain has performed hundreds of thousands of abortions. That is a lot of women being put at risk. The sources of this information are health inspections done by the State of California in October 1971, February 1972, April 1971, July 1974, October 1976, October 1978, September 1980, September 1982, March 1984, July 1984, and October 1984. The facility is Avalon Memorial Hospital. These health code violations are given as quoted in Victims of Choice.
Patient Care Deficiencies
Medical Records Deficiencies
Staff and Procedure Deficiencies
This is a total of forty different kinds of health code violations. Does this sound like something other than a front alley abortion mill to you?
More updated information will be supplied as soon as I have it.
Allred is filthy rich. He owns many select racing horses, and a race track, among other things. There is no excuse for him shortchanging women this way.
Finally, please note that Family Planning Associates, Allred's group, is listed numerous times in Selected National Abortion Federation Member Clinics. If the N.A.F. thinks nothing of the carelessness that Allred displays toward women's lives, what does that tell you?
We who are pro-life feminists have been saying all along that all we accomplished when abortion was legalized was to move the back-alley abortionists to the front-alley, where they hung out a shingle and kept practicing.
