‘Nothing Happened Here’ – Except Fatally Botched Abortion

Mother of four dies after abortionist severs an artery during an abortion

New York, NY – Alexandra Nunez, a 37-year old single mother of four, died after a botched abortion Monday at the A-1 Women’s Center in New York City.

Police, who are continuing to investigate the death, said that the abortionist severed an artery during Nunez’s abortion, leading to massive bleeding and eventually cardiac arrest. Nunez was rushed to a nearby hospital where she died.

A-1 Women’s Center, located in a run-down building in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood of Jackson Heights, was only recently licensed in July of last year to do surgical procedures that required anesthesia. It is operated by an abortionist Salomon Epstein, who has a long history of being protested by pro-life groups.

An unidentified clinic worker told reporters that everything had “gone well” at the abortion clinic, which also doubles as a plastic surgery center. “Nothing happened here,” she said.

“Nothing happened there – except fatal injuries during a botched abortion which cost a woman her life,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is so typical of abortion clinics to hide the truth, but this time, the truth is out. The clinic is under investigation, and we will be forwarding information about this tragedy to the New York State Medical Board and demand disciplinary action against the abortionist.”

Operation Rescue recently launched the Abortion Whistleblowers campaign, offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of an abortionist who is breaking the law.

“We urge anyone working at A-1 Women’s Center to come forward and tell what they know in the interest of protecting other women from suffering Ms. Nunez’s fate.”

    WHAT?!?! I thought all those so-called “pro-choice” people were about women’s “choice” women’s “rights” and women’s “HEALTH” and they had the gall to say “NOTHING happened here” when they killed a woman? There is your big HINT pro-aborts and women that talk about your so-called “RIGHTS” the abortionists don’t give a damn if they did a crappy job on you. How MANY more deaths will it take????? Then this crappy place even says nothing happened when something really wrong happened. People killing life for a living don’t view any life as being important (even the woman’s life)I’m VERY DISGUSTED!

    Reminds me of abortionist Laurent Delli-Bovi in Massachusetts who also used her office for plastic surgery too!

    Why can’t state boards of healing arts AT LEAST require abortion docs to have the equipment and the skill to handle emergency situations like this? When I went through EMT class, we went on a call to a doctor’s office for a woman who had miscarried at six weeks. She was bleeding out her umbilical cord and the doc didn’t have the skill or equipment to handle it so he called the ambulance. She almost died! Her BP went down to 95/45 before we got a line in her arm and started Lactated Ringers and brought it back up to 110/70, then transported her. We took her straight into surgery and the look the surgeon had on his face was “what did this quack goof up now?” I guarantee more of these atrocities will occur.

    This woman’s death emphases why abortions should be performed by medically qualified individuals and in proper medical facilities. Even pro-life advocates should support having legal and medically competent abortion services available, rather than the alternative of sending women to back alley garages and questionably qualified assistance for their abortions. In countries where abortion has been outlawed, women still get abortions. According to a study released by the United Nations in January 2007, it occurs at about the same rate as in countries where abortion is legal as in countries where abortion is illegal. The death rate to women is much higher for illegal abortions and where death doesn’t occur, there may still be serious damage done to the woman’s health.

    Jack Stewart…what is your point? I would like to point out it is the PRO-CHOICE groups like NARAL and NOW that fight even the BASIC requirements in regulating clinics to ensure situations like this don’t happen to women.

    This abortion took place in the USA where abortion is LEGAL. And yet this woman STILL CHOSE to go to this filthy rat hole and consent to surgery there. So how is this back alley? Its the pro-choice politicians and organizations that strike down bill after bill that would put places like this out of business if they didn’t clean up their act. Its the pro-choice mentality that allows abortion to only be legal but not safe. So pat yourself on the back. Now ANOTHER woman is dead. Please read Cemetery of Choice website. Women die all the time because of “safe and legal” abortion. UGH!

    Jack,the reason why pro-life encourages abortion to be illegal is because abortion is killing of a child which is immoral. If abortion is legal then why shouldn’t murder, rape, theft, drug use and so on be legal? They are all immoral but for some sad reason people think it’s okay that babies pay the death penalty for no reason other than “choice”. I’m sure when it was illegal not nearly as many abortions happened……yes there will always be abortion just like there is also still rape, murder, theft and drug use still going on. The big issue is that they legalize it, legalize the killing of the most innocent of all, which of course are babies. We are not okay with the thought that America is becomming so degraded that they encourage people to kill their own flesh in blood instead of stepping up and taking care of their actions. I watched some spanish court show on tv the other day and it put me to tears. There was a young woman, she was 19 and doing good, made good money, going to school and everything. She happened to be 2 months pregnant and wanted an abortion. The man that took her to court was her boyfriend because he didn’t want her to kill their baby. I could see the helplessness in his eyes and actions and heard them through his words. They even brought in a sonogram machine to show the woman her baby and the judge did everything in her power to get her to reconsider the abortion. I felt so bad to see the man being told that there was nothing he could do for his child because it was in the woman’s body and she has a “choice”. And the reason behind it……..because she wants to be a run-way-model! How selfish of an excuse to kill your own child! She had no emotion what so ever looking at the sonogram screen and seeing her own little baby in there. I could see the head, body, arms, legs, even perfectly formed hands with fingers and feet with toes… I was thinking how could she not care about it. That’s what happens when a country legalizes such terrible things….people become perfectly fine with it and don’t even think it’s taboo anymore and their hearts grow very cold and hard. When it’s illegal women are more likely to think twice about it.

    Abortion is a horrible choice to make , however there is a right to choose . It’s sad but reality. It’s a lil better when they do it early . I will not assist in a abortion if I can see a fetus instead of a embryo. I just can’t do it !
