Had to scan through here to find this. I thought someone in here had been looking for info on Carol Everett. Sorry it's taken me so long to supplement my previous post, but I have been buried, just buried, in paperwork. Here are some excerpts of information I have on her in my files. My file on Carol Everett, alone, is about an inch thick: From "Affidavit of Carol N. Everett, State of Texas, County of Dallas", testimony presented before the 1985 Texas Legislature: "1. My name is Carol N. Everett. I am 40 years old. My residence address is 12355 High Meadow Place, Dallas, Texas 75234. I have lived in Texas all my life. I graduated from San Saba High School in 1962. I attended the University of Texas at Austin. I have resided in Dallas since 1972. I have two children, ages 22 and 20." "2. I was actively involved with the abortion rights movement for over six years. I managed three different abortion clinics in Dallas County, Texas, as more fully described below. In addition, I frequently spoke about the subject of abortion rights at seminars, in schools and on radio and television programs. I am acquainted with many of the people who perform abortions in this State and the leaders of the abortion rights movement in Texas. "3. In my opinion, abortionists have abused the lack of regulation of the practice of abortion in the State of Texas to the detriment of the health of the women who have abortions. If the State of Texas does not regulate the practice of abortion, and enforce its regulations, abortion clnics will continue to abuse the lack of regulation. I wholeheartedly support each and every provision, including the penalty provisions, of the identical comprehensive abortion regulation bills which are being considered by the Senate (S.B. 129) and House of Representatives (H.B. 486) in the 1985 Texas Legislative Session. The penalties as provided in S.B. 129 and H.B. 486 as originally introduced are necessary and appropriate. Because of the private nature of abortion, abortionists may believe that prosecution for violation of the abortion related offenses is unlikely. Therefore, some severity of the penalties is necessary to create a deterrent to condeuct which will be prohibited by the new Chapter 23.

Everett", testimony presented before the 1985 Texas Legislature (I have a copy of the affidavit): "4. From 1977 through 1980 I was affiliated with the North Dallas Women's clinic which is an abortion clinic located at 4255 LBJ Freeway, Suite 177, at Midway, Dallas, Texas 75235 owned by Family Planning Treatment Centers, Inc., a Texas business corporation, which was a wholly owned subsidiary of DOCTA, Inc., a Texas business corporation. "5. From February 1979 until June 1979 I was responsible for setting up centers in Texas and Louisiana for the purpose of referring potential aborrtion patients to North Dallas Women's Clinic. The referral centers were established under a tax-exempt organization called Advisory Referral Centers, Inc. which was created by the owners of DOCTA, Inc. The centers were advertised by public service announcements on the radio (which were free since ARC was tax-exempt), newspaper ads and in the yellow pages and were represented to be multi-faceted counseling centers. However, the sole purpose of the centers was to solicit business for North Dallas Women's Clinic, that is, to send women to the clinic for the purpose of having abortions. "6. From June 1979 until august 1980, I managed the North Dallas Women's Clinic. During that period the clinic had five abortionists who rotated on a daily basis. The clinic performed approximately 3,500 abortions per year. Family Planning Treatment Centers, Inc. also owned South Lake Women's Clinic, an abortion clinic located on Pennsylvania Aveue in Ft. Worth which had at least three rotating physicians.

The local offices of Planned Parenthood referred many abortion patiens to Family Planning Treatment Centers, Inc. Family Planning Treatment Centers, I(nc. bought and gave many items, including a new Cadillac automobile, to the local director of Planned Parethood. "8. In April 1981 I began managing an abortion clinic at 1625 West Mockingbird, Suite 211, Dallas, Texas 75235 called Dallas Medical Ladies' Clinic owned by a Texas business corporation named Abortion Advisory Clinics, Inc. I helped start another clinic in September 1982 at 3230 North Highway 67, Suite 107, Mesquite, Texas called Women's Clinic of Mesquite owned by Women's Clinic of Mesquite, Inc., a Texas business corporation. I was the Vice_president of both Abortion Advisory Clinics, Inc. and Women's Clinic of Mesquite, Inc. My compensation from both Abortion Advisory Clinics, Inc. and Women's Clinic of Mesquite, Inc. was $25,00 per abortion performed in the clinics and a one-third ownership interest in the corporations. I managed both clinics until July 1983. We had seven abortionists who performed abortions at the two clinics on a rotating basis. We maintained a staff of eleven "nurses." During the time that I was with the two clinics, only one of the "nurses" we hired was a registered nurse. "9. I never checked to determine whether any of the persons who performed abortions in my clinics were licensed to practice medicine in the State of Texas. "10. During the year 1982 the clnics performed approximately 5,000 abortions, and therefore my compensation was approximately $125,000. My goal was to earn $250,000.00 in 1983. I believe that I could have earned that amount during the calendar year 1983, if I hadn't changed my mind about wanting to run abortion clinics. I terminated my involvement with the lcinics in July 1983. During the seven month period January through July, 1983, I earned $93,000, at $25.00 per abortion for 3,720 abortions. I personally participated in approximately 10% of the abortions performed at the two clnics. "11. In addition to other duties, I was in charge of training counselors. We used a consent form which was prepared by a leading abortion rights' attorney, who used to be the husband of the President of the National Abortion Federation. We did not counsel our patients as to the potential emotional consequences of having an abortion. In my opinion the State of Texas should require full and accurate informed consent counseling and should require statistical reporting in order to compile data for accurate informed consent forms.

Many women who had abortions at my clinics had major complications requiring hospitalization. "13. I have heard of abortion related deaths in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Based on my experience, I believe that it is quite likely that women in the Dallas-Fort Worth area have died as a result of abortions at clinics in that area. "14. Many women who came for abortions asked what we did with the fetal remains. We told them we sent the remains to a lab, which was untrue. We usually put the remains down the disposal. Some patiens requested that Holy Water be sprinkled on their dead fetus. The abortionists would joke in the "back room" that they would run all the water out of the faucet down the disposal with the dead fetus as the girl wanted. "15. At my clinics fetal remains were not routinely examined by a pathologist. In my opinion, the State of Texas should require that fetal remains from each abortion be examined by a pathologist in order to determine whether there were any complications from the abortion which might threaten the woman's life or health. "16. Abortions were frequently performed on minors in my clinics. We did not require parental consent for a minor who was over 14 years of age, unless she was more than 14 weeks pregnant. In my opinion, the State of Texas should require parental consent for all abortions on minors." "17. "Bib baby" abortions were performed at my clnics. I personally witnessed some big baby abortions. In my opinion, the State of Texas should treat the killing of a viable unborn baby as the state treats the killing of any other human being. Signed: Carol N.

Although I would prefer to hold an old acquaintance in positive regard, I recall no good reason to dispute her claim that she was involved in the provision of abortion services primarily for reasons no more onorable than simple greed for money. I do, however, think I have good reason to dispute her current claim of moral "conversion." I seriously doubt that her motives have really changed.

West, Jr., M.D., Outpatient Psychiatry, Obstetrics and Gynecology, signed and dated 2/24/88, continued: PAGE 2 "I do, however, think I have god reason to dispute her current claim of moral "conversion". I seriously doubt that her motives have really changed. Numerous greed-struck religious frauds (and a few secular ones, as well) have in recent years developed sensationalistic, melodramatic, inflammatory, and blatantly fraudulent anti-abortion propaganda into one of their biggest and most dependable money-makers. I would not doubt that Carol Everett is being paid very well by Bill Price and his organizations to say whatever they think is likely to advance their agenda and hustle monetary contributions, with little regard for either truth or plausibility. "One thing Ms. Everett claims is that callous greed like hers is a common motive among those who are involved in the provision of abortion services. This is flagrantly untrue. She should know better. She also contends that legal abortion, as practiced in the United States today, is prohibitively dangerous. In actual fact, it is probably about as safe as having a wisdom tooth pulled and is certainly much safer than having a baby, its only alternative. She should now this. "She claims to have "seen the light" and resigned from her clinic position in 1983. Actually, she was fired and was quite bitter and fiercely vengeful about it. It seems likely that she is still seeking revenge by ragefully attacking abortion providers in general, and with outrageous dishonesty. "She was never even the owner of a clinic as she claims. This fact can be verified by reference to legal documents on file with the Dallas County District Clerk (Cause No. 85-522-L, styled Carol Everett vs. J. Harvey Johnson, et. al.). ". . .Among Ms. Everett's various fraudulent claims is her assertion that abortion surgery is deliverately performed on women who are not actually pregnant in order to get their money. Give me a break! I hope there are not many among us who are cynical and gullible enough to actually believe such garbage! "Ms. Everett's high level of dishonesty is quite compatible with that of the so-called "Pro-Life Movement". Perhaps she can thus feel more at home on that side of the fence. My question is whether she is lying or deluded, and whether she has truly converted in any real sense. . . .

Subj: Re: Scarlet Lady ____________________________________________________________________________ VIA: QEcho 2.66a From an interview in the Ft.Worth Sun-Telegram, 3-3-88, by Terry Goodrich, Carol Everett is quoted as follows: "My husband and I had made a deal before we got married," she said. "He'd had a bad marriage, and I had, too. I had two children, and we didn't want any more. The agreement was this if I got pregnant, I'd have an abortion." "I had an abortion, and the bottom fell out. I was running from it. I ran out and had an affair. then I went to my doctor and said, "I'm having trouble.' He gave me some mood elevators, and I started abusing them. That didn't take care of it either, so I started getting drunk." [My comments here: Now, does this person sound like a bastion of integrity or what?] More from the Sun-Telegram interview by Terry Goodrich with Carol Everett, 3-3-88: "When her boss, who sold medical supplies, opened two abortion clinics -- the North Dallas Women's Clinic and South Lake Women's Clinic in Forth Worth -- she managed them for him. When he refused to give her part ownership, she found a doctor and started her own, with an agreement that she be paid $25 per abortion, she said. They started with 45 abortions per month and in her last month before getting out of the business, "we did over 500 abortions" at the Dallas Medical Ladies' Clinic and Women's Clinic of Mesquite, she said. "I made $13,625 my last month." [My comment here: Notice the complete difference between the above "story" and Carol's affidavit before the Texas legislature.] Continuing the Sun-Telegram interview of 3-3-88 with Carol, she says: "I suspected some abortions were being performed on women who weren't pregnant, but I couldn't prove it because I was a non-medical person," she said. [My comments here: Now, contrast this to her outright statement in the movie "Meet the Abortion Providers," Pro-Life Action League, Nov. 1987, where she says that abortions were performed on women who weren't pregnant.] Also quoted in the same Ft. Worth Sun-Telegram interview is Dr. Harvey Johnson, the doctor Everett said she co-owned the clinics with and he says, "As far as the ownership, I think you should ask her to produce the papers." Now, in yet another article, from a newspaper in Midland Texas dated August 26, 1988, showing Carol's picture, with the side caption "Carol Everett who has had an abortion and owned two abortion clinis in Dallas, now campaigns for the repal of Wads vs. Roe, the supreme Court decision that legalized abortions." George Wolf, Reporter-Telegram. Below the picture is an interview by Julie Hillrichs, Staff Writer that begins ". . . .Mrs. Everett owned two abortion clinics in Dallas where more than 35,000 such procedures were conducted from 1977-83." MORE ON CAROL EVERETT THAN YOU EVER PROBABLY CARED TO KNOW, CONTINUED NEXT MESSAGE: More on Carol Everett: As you can see, she claims to have been vice-president and part owner of two clinics in her testimony before the Texas committee, which, actually was the basis for the lawsuit referred to in Dr. Westin's statement (Carol apparently was suing to be declared part owner and wasn't). Now, notice, in her testimony, she claimed to have been involved with abortion-referral services in Dallas and Ft. Worth, and to have been "part-owner" of two clinics in Dallas (which Dr. Westin and legal papers dispute as untrue to begin with).

Subj: Re: Scarlet Lady ____________________________________________________________________________ VIA: QEcho 2.66a CAROL EVERETT, continued (I've lost count of my page numbers.) In an article written by Carol Everett, that appeared in the 1991 American Life Leagu "All About Issues" Magazine, Augst-September 1991 issue, she writes three full 8-1/2 x 11 pages, three columns per page, two entire columns of which are devoted to describing in the first person (from her experience) how women were tricked into having abortions who weren't pregnant. The story grows: "Together, they go to the lab. The counselor mixes the urine and the chemicals, point to a chart on the wall which shows the results of both a positive and a negative test. The woman watches the test and if it is positive, the counselor sympathizes with her. . . .If you read many pregnancy tests, you can tell at about a minute into the test if it is going to be positive or negative. If the test looks questionable, the counselor will start selling another step. "This test is not sensitive enough to pick up a very early pregnancy, but we have another test we can do that will tell you positively today. . . .A sonogram shows everything in a woman's abdomen, and a uterus will show up, pregnant or not. The doctor or technician will find a good view of the uterus, lock the screen in place, turn it around to show it to (the patient), and say, "See, there is is, you are pregnant." (The patients) does not routingely read sonograms, so she will take the expert's opinion. . . ." "I worked seven days a week doing abortions, even on Sunday. . . .In 1983, with two clinics open, I was well on the way to $250,000, with plans to open three more clinics. With five clinics open (the McDonal's of the abortion industry), my income would have been $1,000,000 annually!" ". . . .A television station in our area did an expose' on abortion clinics doing abortions on women who were not pregnant. Six women came in, dressed in blue jeans, wired for sound. We worked so hard on one woman that she had to change her tape! She was so convinced she was pregnant that she rused to her own doctor, who ran another test to confirm that she was not pregnant. As this flashed across the television screen for five days, I experienced an incredible peace that surpassed all understanding. My prayer was answered. I was not supposed to be in the abortion business!" [My comment here. I think, as I said earlier, she "got religion" when she got busted.] Now, in a national advertisement, with a picture of her across the top, that solicits contributions for the "Abortion is not Family Planning Coalition, c/o NRLC 419 Seventh Street NW #500, Washington, D.C., 20084, the following quote appears with her picture, emblazoned across the top of the ad, in QUOTE marks: "When I ran several abortion clinics in Texas, I received referrals from a Title 10-funded clinic...I know what "counselling" means: more money for the abortion industry." [My comment here: Now it's "several clinics." ] In an interview in the Catholic spirit, September 20, 1991, by Richard Cain, the article begins: "(In 1973, Carol Everett had an abortion to save her marriage. In an attempt to justify that abortion, she ended up becoming a part-owner of two abortion clnics in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area. . . ." The rest of the article is written by Carol. The interviewer asks her how much she makes now and she replies that she gets $750. a day lecturing fee. Now, interestingly enough, in this article, she makes it appear that she actually set up the Channel 4, CBA, July 1983 "expose" of telling women who weren't pregnant that they were pregnant! "In July 1983, Channel 4, the CBS affiliate in Dallas did an expose on abortion clinics doing abortions on women who were not pregnant. They sent reporters i wired for sound, to see if we would sell abortions to non-pregnant women -- and we did! I knew they were coming and I warned the staff.

Worth area from 1977 until 1983. As director of four clinics, owner of two. Ms. Everett was responsible for the clinics' daily operation as well as for all employee training programs. She had an abortion soon after it became legal in 1973 and now speaks out on what she saw in the abortion industry." This brochure says, "Each time I sold an abortion to another woman, I justified my own abortion all over again. . . .When I realized how profitable the "business" was, I wanted more money. Because my employer would not give me an equity interest, I negotiated a more lucrative arrangement with the next clinic. I was paid $25 for each abortion that was done." [My comment: "Paid" doesn't sound like "owned" to me.] She also claims that she got out of the industry because "Then we had a death. A 32 year old woman hemorrhaged to death as a result of a cervical laceration. I finally realized,w e weren't helping women -- we were destroying them." Now, contrast this to some other interviews, including ones from which I've quoted earlier, in which she says they were having deaths once a month! But now, one death (not getting busted by the TV, which she now claims to have set up), made her "see the light." The woman is a chronic liar and a fraud. She's just better paid now than before. --- QuickBBS 2.64 (Eval) * Origin: MotherBoard BBS-Greenwood, IN (317) 881-2743 (1:231/110) SEEN-BY: 114/15 18 54 113 231/110 374/14 PATH: 114/18 15 374/14 Msg # 125 Date: 12 Aug 92 05:34:00 From: Linda Thompson To: Linda Thompson Subj: Re: Scarlet Lady ____________________________________________________________________________ VIA: QEcho 2.66a #17 in the affidavit should say "Big baby" not "Bib baby" (can't type). --- QuickBBS 2.64 (Eval) * Origin: MotherBoard BBS-Greenwood, IN (317) 881-2743 (1:231/110) SEEN-BY: 114/15 18 54 113 231/110 374/14 PATH: 114/18 15 374/14
