Bakersfield, CA — When playboy abortionist Alexander Simopoulos was confronted by a pro-life activist about his involvement in a botched an abortion that took place on July 19, 2016, the abortionist arrogantly taunted her to “prove it.”

“Proving that botched abortions are taking place at an alarming rate at abortion facilities across America is part of what we do,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “My staff gladly accepted Simopoulos’ challenge. We now have proof in the form of the 911 call placed by one of Simopoulos’ worried staff.”


Operation Rescue recently obtained the 911 records that document symptoms of a serious abortion complication suffered by a 19-year old woman, who was left in the care of staff while Simopolous moved on to conduct other surgical abortions.

Palmquist’s husband, Tim, provided Operation Rescue a photo of an ambulance taken on the day of the most recent medical emergency at the FPA Women’s Health abortion facility in Bakersfield, California, where Simopoulos works.

Records show that an FPA employee named Maria placed the 911 call for help with a patient who was suffering from dangerously low blood pressure following her abortion.

Usually it is the abortion facility personnel who attempt to minimize the seriousness of abortion complications, but this time, it was the 911 dispatcher who seemed to think that the woman’s rapidly falling blood pressure was just a matter of routine.

Maria told the dispatcher that the hypotensive patient suffered dangerously low blood pressure of 60/40. She answered each of the dispatcher’s questions about the 19-year old woman’s condition, who was awake and breathing through sobs. She was not bleeding externally and was experiencing no pain.

When asked if she was alert, Maria responded, “Somewhat.”

She told the dispatcher that Simopoulos was not with patient because he had gone on to do other surgeries.

The dispatcher told Maria that an ambulance was being dispatched with no lights or sirens at normal street traffic speed.

“No, you know, we–I don’t feel comfortable with that because her blood pressure is really extremely low. I don’t –,” Maria told the dispatcher.

The dispatcher cut her off, saying, “I understand but unfortunately that’s EMS protocol. It’s not your choice or mine.”

“But her blood pressure is 60/40,” the worried abortion worker responded.

“But she’s conscious and breathing. She has no other symptoms. That’s the problem. That’s why I asked you those screening questions,” the brusque dispatcher said, cutting Maria off once again.

Maria continued to express concerns about how long it would take the ambulance to arrive. She appeared very concerned for the patient and wanted help as soon as possible.

The standard blood pressure expected for a 19-year old female is between 115/75 and 120/80. The woman’s blood pressure of 60/40 was an indication that something is amiss, such as the possibility of internal bleeding, which left untreated could lead to a heart attack under certain circumstances.

The July 19th incident was the eleventh medical emergency documented at the Bakersfield FPA since August 2012. It is the fourth such incident involving Simopoulos since he began working at the abortion facility in July of last year.

Simopoulos is a Beverly Hills based cosmetic surgeon who has appeared on reality television shows such as Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker, where he confessed that he views women as sex objects.

An article researched and penned by Tim Palmquist explains that women Simopoulos met on the Bravo show considered him “Dr. Freak,” “creepy,” “gross,” and “Dr. Frankenstein.” One woman was so appalled by his behavior that she warned, “women of the world, stay away!”

Operation Rescue plans to file a complaint against Simopoulos with the California Medical Board.

“It appears that Simopoulos has the attitude that he can get away with hurting women because no one will be able to ‘prove it.’ It’s time for the Medical Board to take action to protect women from this obviously dangerous man,” said Newman.

    I have never had 911 ask so many questions. Just send the darn ambulance already.

  • ConservativeLady

    Also why not say she had an abortion and may be hemorrhaging? Let’s have a little honesty about what you do!

  • jreg9304

    Pathetic situation..

  • Hunt

    These types of sick so-called doctors need to be put out of business.

  • helensatmary

    It is time to shut all of these butcher shops down. These are not Doctors, doctors heal they do not butcher!!! I feel very sorry for the young lady but abortion is never the answer…….So many who cannot conceive would be so happy to provide a home for any baby they could have. That is the healthy, considerate, and comforting answer. Perhaps a bit inconvenient for a few months but we all face inconveniences of many sorts and this is one that is so precious to the baby who is entitled to life, the couple who will happily give it a happy, fulfilling life, and the mother who carried this precious bundle to fulfillment. There will be no looking back to regrets of having killed your child but allowing it to have the life it is entitled to.

  • Marie

    YES!!! Chances are she was hemorrhaging. Maria should have said so and I bet the EMT would have prioritized the patient.

  • rannan3

    w/o that “procedure ” the 19 year old would not have required EMS !

  • Marilynn Reeves

    What the hell is a plastic surgeon doing abortions for? Is this not more for an OB/GYN doctor.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    AMEN Too many ways to prevent pregnancy to even need abortion. Abortion is MURDER not BIRTH CONTROL.

  • Marilynn Reeves

    It’s all about protecting the clinic and doctors.

  • Vivavox

    Heck, the St. Louis Planned Parenthood has it as a matter of policy in writing that ambulances arrive without lights or sirens even on priority one cases. I give Maria credit for at least saying she was not comfortable with it.

  • ADRoberts

    One dispatcher needs to be fired and Simopoulos should have his license pulled and put in jail.
    But thenm as the Bible says, “becaue iniquity shall abound………”

  • J Foster

    California Medical Board, remove his license to practice and serve him with the proper papers.
    Please note Probate §4653; Health and Safety Code, Division 1, section 443 of CA law. The doctor does not have the legal right to end the life of the child, as the child, under this law, has not given consent. Please also note, the mother; by dying; did not give consent to her own euthanizing – as such, the doctor is guilty of double-homicide as written under the law. (Above stated and others, do you need those too?)

    Obama, Killery and their cronies planned parenthood want to convince the public that this is the ONLY alternative to “back alley coat hanger abortions” In my book ,all that was missing here was the coat hanger! Obama, Killery ,planned parenthood and the Democratic party platform approve of this up to and including the due date or delivering the baby only part way out of the vagina, killing it by cutting it’s neck/spinal cord and sucking out the brain, thereby collapsing the skull for delivery, otherwise known as “partial Birth Abortion” THIS is WHY pro life folks want to have wise regulations in place to prevent this kind of butchery……..clean, sanitary facilities, admitting privileges at a local hospital , and follow up care as is standard in ANY out patient facility. If abortions will happen and we all know they will, at least treat this “Women’s Healthcare Issue” as a women’s healthcare issue which planned parenthood says that is what abortion is, a women’s health care issue. So, is filling a tooth, having any number of “female” procedures done as an out-patient, in a clean facility, with admitting privileges for the performing doctor and follow up care. To provide this type of environment in the abortion mill facility, is not only common sense and decency but humane health care for women, preventing these kind of 911 calls as well. Pro choice folks insist it infringes on privacy and is unconstitutional. One article here says a mother found her daughter dead in her bed 4 days after receiving an abortion, She was experiencing post abortion trauma and in a lot of pain prior to her death. And, it would be horrible to think your daughter was safe at school, where you sent her this morning, only to get a call from the ER telling you she is post abortive and with complications or God should forbid a call from the police or morgue telling you she is dead. Legally she can get that abortion and not need her parents’ approval. Obama, Killery, planned parenthood and the Democratic Party platform approve of this !!!!!!! THIS is what pro-life warriors are trying to prevent!!!!!!
