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.

The Beast of Revelation IdentifiedThe Beast of Revelation: Identified (DVD)

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?

Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!

Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.

Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)

The Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of ChristThe Real Jesus: A Defense of the Historicity and Divinity of Christ (DVD)

Who is the Real Jesus?

Ever since the dawn of modern rationalism, skeptics have sought to use textual criticism, archeology and historical reconstructions to uncover the “historical Jesus” — a wise teacher who said many wonderful things, but fulfilled no prophecies, performed no miracles and certainly did not rise from the dead in triumph over sin.

Over the past 100 years, however, startling discoveries in biblical archeology and scholarship have all but vanquished the faulty assumptions of these doubting modernists. Regrettably, these discoveries have often been ignored by the skeptics as well as by the popular media. As a result, the liberal view still holds sway in universities and impacts the culture and even much of the church.

The Real Jesus explodes the myths of these critics and the movies, books and television programs that have popularized their views. Presented in ten parts — perfect for individual, family and classroom study — viewers will be challenged to go deeper in their knowledge of Christ in order to be able to defend their faith and present the truth to a skeptical modern world – that the Jesus of the Gospels is the Jesus of history — “the same yesterday, today and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). He is the real Jesus.

Speakers include: George Grant, Ted Baehr, Stephen Mansfield, Raymond Ortlund, Phil Kayser, David Lutzweiler, Jay Grimstead, J.P. Holding, and Eric Holmberg.

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

The Silent Scream (DVD) Eight Languages

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981

Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House. More recently, it was by catching just a glimpse of what this film reveals that Planned Parenthood director and abortion advocate Abby Johnson turned and became a strong advocate for the pre-born.

The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.

“…a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Languages: English, Spanish, French, South Korean, Chinese, Russian, Portuguese, Japanese
