Young mother’s death brings lawsuit

Tuesday, December 18, 2001
By Torsten Ove, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Staff Writer

Abortionist committed 10 incidents of malpractice

The family of a Cranberry woman who died after surgery at UPMC Passavant Hospital following a miscarriage has filed a wrongful death suit against the doctor who performed the procedure, saying he improperly started the operation in his North Hills office and was unprepared for the emergency that resulted.

The suit also charges that the doctor, Gerald Applegate, has a history of hospital suspensions and malpractice lawsuits and was under suspension by Magee-Womens Hospital at the time of the operation.  In addition, it says Applegate lied about his previous lawsuits when he applied for staff privileges at Passavant, and that Passavant knew about Applegate’s problems and allowed him to stay on the staff.

The suit was filed yesterday in Allegheny County Common Pleas Court by David K. Speicher, whose wife, Julie, died at Passavant on Feb. 27, 2000, after Applegate’s second attempt to remove the fetus. Also named as defendants are Passavant, Magee and UPMC Health System.

Applegate, a prominent abortion doctor with offices on Perry Highway in Wexford, could not be reached for comment. A UPMC spokesman said officials could not comment on pending litigation.

Julie Speicher, who had two children with David, was expecting their third in June 2000. But when she went to the doctor for her monthly checkup on Feb. 24, 2000, the fetus was dead. Applegate decided to perform the removal procedure, called an evacuation, in his office. When complications arose and Speicher stopped breathing, Applegate called 911. Paramedics inserted a breathing tube and took her to Passavant.

On Feb. 25, Applegate tried to evacuate the fetus again. But Speicher’s condition deteriorated and the next day she died. The Allegheny County coroner’s office classified the death as “therapeutic misadventure.” She was 32 and left behind her husband, their son, Adam, 6, and daughter, Alyssa, 4.

The suit says Applegate should have begun the operation in a hospital because he and his staff were unable to deal with an emergency in the office. The doctor had no nurse anesthetist, did not monitor Speicher’s vital signs, did no blood testing and, when Speicher stopped breathing, didn’t know how to intubate her because he’d never done it, according to the suit. The doctor also did not perform a procedure called osmotic dilation to soften the cervix, which the suit said is a mandatory precaution in second trimester evacuations.

Applegate, who still has staff privileges at Passavant and Magee, had been under a three-month suspension by Magee at the time of the procedure, according to the suit, because of failure to respond to pages to deliver babies. He didn’t tell Speicher about the suspension, however, and used a Magee consent form for the procedure. Because Magee operated the obstetrics unit at Passavant, according to the suit, Applegate’s suspension at Magee meant he should have been prevented from using the Passavant facility.

According to the suit, he also used his own equipment at Passavant, a violation of hospital policy. The suit alleges that Applegate lied on his original 1993 application for privileges at Passavant by claiming he had no lawsuits against him when he actually had five. He was kept on junior active status for three years instead of one because he had 43 violations for failure to complete hospital charts on time, the suit says. In all, Applegate has had nine medical malpractice lawsuits brought against him in 10 years and has changed insurance carriers three times, according to the suit, but Passavant did not suspend him.

Why Creeds and Confessions? (Book)

High Quality Paperback — 219 pages

Foundations in Biblical Orthodoxy

Driving down a country road sometime, you might see a church with a sign proudly proclaiming: “No book but the Bible — No creed but Christ.” The problem with this statement is that the word creed (from the Latin: credo) simply means “belief.” All Christians have beliefs, regardless of whether they are written.

Yet a single book containing the actual texts of the most important creeds of the early Church will not often be found. Out of the multitude of works on the evangelical Christian book market today, those dealing with the creeds of the Church are scarce.

Why Creeds and Confessions? provides a foundation of biblical orthodoxy as a defense against the false and truly heretical doctrines advanced by the spirit of this age.

Massacre of Innocence (DVD)

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion

This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.

Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.

“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Go Stand Speak (DVD)

With “preaching to the lost” being such a basic foundation of Christianity, why do many in the church seem to be apathetic on this issue of preaching in highways and byways of towns and cities?

Is it biblical to stand in the public places of the world and proclaim the gospel, regardless if people want to hear it or not?

Does the Bible really call church pastors, leaders and evangelists to proclaim the gospel in the public square as part of obedience to the Great Commission, or is public preaching something that is outdated and not applicable for our day and age?

These any many other questions are answered in this documentary.

Dr. Francis Schaeffer - A Christian Manifesto (DVD)

That Swiss Hermit Strikes Again!

Dr. Schaeffer, who was one of the most influential Christian thinkers in the twentieth century, shows that secular humanism has displaced the Judeo-Christian consensus that once defined our nation’s moral boundaries. Law, education, and medicine have all been reshaped for the worse as a consequence. America’s dominant worldview changed, Schaeffer charges, when Christians weren’t looking.

Schaeffer lists two reasons for evangelical indifference: a false concept of spirituality and fear. He calls on believers to stand against the tyranny and moral chaos that come when humanism reigns-and warns that believers may, at some point, be forced to make the hard choice between obeying God or Caesar. A Christian Manifesto is a thought-provoking and bracing Christian analysis of American culture and the obligation Christians have to engage the culture with the claims of Christ.
