DOVER, Del.- Two nurses are taking a stand against Planned Parenthood of Delaware for "meat market style assembly line abortions" and unsanitary medical facilities in Wilmington and Dover.

Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich and Joyce Vasikonis, who both resigned from Planned Parenthood of Delaware after working there as nurses, testified at a Senate Committee hearing held in Dover on Wednesday. In their testimonies, Mitchell-Webrich and Vasikonis say that patient care was nonexistent, with inadequately trained staff, and contaminated medical equipment.

"I had a doctor that was abusive to patients," said Mitchell-Werbrich. "He would bring in patients on bloody examination tables, bloodied by other patients."

Mitchell-Webrich and Vasikonis provided state politicians with dozens of emails showing their attempts to notify Planned Parenthood executives and state agencies of the negligent medical practices.

"There was no real response to fix it," said Vasikonis. "Planned Parenthood is a very powerful organization."

Amelia Auner, Planned Parenthood of Delaware's vce president of public affairs, released a statement to WBOC Wednesday afternoon, in response to the Senate hearing: "Our doors have always remained open. We are providing our full range of services, and all of our staff are highly trained and meeting our promise of quality care."
