Abortion Patient Death: Emergency Radio Traffic Spotlights Events on Fatal Night

Funeral arrangements have been set for Thursday

By Cheryl Sullenger

Battle Creek, Michigan – Operation Rescue has obtained an audio file containing Fire and Rescue radio traffic from the night that Michigan resident Cree Erwin died after having received an abortion at an unknown facility.

A dispatcher can be heard broadcasting a Code 1 medical emergency alert on July 4, 2016, at 12:41 a.m. for a female in cardiac arrest at the Battle Creek address of her mother, which is only about a block from Bronson Battle Creek Hospital, where Erwin had been treated for abortion complications on July 2.

A police unit was also dispatched.

Engine 2 responded to the alert. Moments later, the dispatcher relayed additional information about the victim, describing her as a 23-year old unconscious female who was not breathing. No Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) was in progress.

Sirens can be heard in the background as Engine 2 confirmed the address.

Engine 2 arrived on the scene at 12:43 p.m. According to a WWMT.com interview with Battle Creek Police Detective Sergeant Troy Gilleylen, emergency responders found Erwin dead in her mother’s bed with no outward signs of foul play.

A grim Engine 2 responder soon asked the dispatcher if police were in route. The dispatcher notified him that the police were just pulling up.

It was too late for emergency medical intervention, and Engine 2 cleared the scene at 12:55 a.m. The entire incident too less than 15 minutes.

While the emergency call took place on July 4, it has been determined that Erwin actually died on July 3, just five days after her abortion on June 28, and about 36 hours after the nearby hospital gave her pain medication and sent away.

Additional research by Operation Rescue and long-time Michigan activist Lynn Mills indicates it is possible that Erwin may not have received an abortion at the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood facility, which was the closest abortion business to her home. It is unclear where she might have gone as of this writing.

An autopsy has been conducted, but is not expected to be released for two to three weeks.

“We were heartbroken to hear that Cree Ervin had passed away before emergency help could arrive. We continue to pray for the family and for her surviving son,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “But we must remember what precipitated this tragedy. Something went wrong with her abortion and now she is dead. That fact must not be swept under the rug. In order to keep others from suffering Ms. Erwin’s fate, we will continue to our own investigations. We hope whoever was responsible for her abortion is found, fully investigated, and brought to justice in a court of law.”

Meanwhile, family members have made funeral arrangements for their lost loved one.

A service will be held for Cree Brianne Erwin-Sheppard on July 14, 2016, at Sanctuary of Praise in Battle Creek, followed by internment at Oak Hill Cemetery.

This is a developing story.

  • The squeamish may want to delete this. At 15, my parents left it up to a CHILD to decide whether or not to have an abortion. Where in God’s name were the parents/adults in all of this? If my mom would not have come in that night, you would not be reading his. I was lying on a soaked mattress in my own blood bleeding out. You see, 1 in every 2000 women are born with 2 uterus’ but never know it for it doesn’t have anything to do with being unable to carry a child to term, but it is a better home for twins. The abortionist butcher never did a check to see if I was indeed pregnant, nor did he give me a pelvic, which he would have immediately felt two distinct uterus’. Throughout my 20’s, I would miscarry every year like clockwork. I would place a sieve on the seat of the toilet so the blood could be strained out but the baby would be intact. Thankfully, I lived on my parent’s ranch and I buried every single one of those babies who were taken from me as if by sheer will. Finally, when I was pregnant with twins, the upstairs neighbor rushed me to the hospital where they did an immediate emergency D&C(if you do not know what that is and you are a women, please google it), and a chance to have children. He and his group said they had read about an operation but had never actually done it. It was a risk, but for me that meant the possibility of children…I had no second thoughts. They believed they could repair the damage done to me by that abortion, and also reconstruct my uterus which was also damaged by that abortion. 10 long days went by after that surgery and they told me it was a complete success! Just one thing: do not get pregnant for 6 months as my womb was not strong enough and only by C-Section. 7 long years went by. No more miscarriages, but no pregnancies either. I had put it out of my mind as hopeless. Then in the 8th year, I was found to be 2 months pregnant. I was walking back to our car as if I was walking on water. My baby, what joy she has been and the first words I heard was a nurse exclaiming what a beautiful baby girl! Her father had been positioned, as he watched everything and was the first to hold her. Hannah, named after my beloved Russian grandmother, is has just turned 24 on the 9th of this month. It seems as though it was yesterday when I held her in my arms, I was 34 at the time. She is everything her father and me weren’t. I guess 2 very negatives really do make a positive. She works full time, goes to school full time, has her own apt. and doesn’t smoke or drink and is a beauty, for she never wears makeup as she doesn’t need to. I couldn’t be more prouder. She is the dog trainer for Petco while working towards that degree for entrance into the K-9 division of either the police of the FBI. She has had scholarships and I have only had to pay for that first semester; she made “A’s” in every class…but by all that is right she and myself were betrayed and 7 sisters or brothers would have surely been born if not for that one mistake. I cannot tell you how rabidly pro life I am. And those “friends” who take you secretly to have an abortion, if what happened to me happened to another teen, she would be left by those great friends in an alley with nothing for the police to go on except that she recently had had a botched abortion. You never hear these stories. I wonder why. I also wonder why adults let a child make a woman’s decision. I have mourned my loss for each and every child buried out on that ranch. I WAS BETRAYED. And I say it is the Supreme Court’s utter disregard for the Constitution, and too eager to make their ideology known by all. All must obey these 9 black robed bureaucrats, for they are not elected, given no term limits, and make law for the minority regardless of what the WE THE PEOPLE want…the majority. To close, I want to see the end of Roe v Wade either in my lifetime or at least my daughter’s lifetimes. We must stop this stealing of souls, or I fear, but it is better put by Jefferson as he said, “I tremble for my county when I know that God will not long sleep for he must seek out His murderers. These NATIONAL SINS OF ABORTION AND GAY MARRIAGE are sins that we Texans do not want to be visited upon our heads as he has so blessed our piece of the sky. Texas has all but run them out of town, but the ROBED GENIUSES yet again ruled on a social issue decree that what Texas has done is unconstitutional! I am just happy to be living in the freest part of this entire county. P. Kathy Kleiman

    She cast aside God’s gift so he revoked his gift of life he gave her. You reap what you sow. In God’s eye it was the murder of his child. You anger God by harming one of his then expect no less than his judgement.

    This is what liberals and women libers wanted,abortions any time ..on demand…no hospital conditions required. Every nut job and butt head is now an abortionist. I feel bad for the young lady. Abstinence until married, or condoms on men and IUDs for children,girls(where the hell are the parents ,why weren’t they watching their daughter and being a part of her life) and women. Also pepper spray is a pretty good deterrent, or a swift kick with all their might in the nuts usually stop them. very sad , very sad

    That is a very harsh statement. You make God sound like a tyrant out for blood. I to had an abortion 40 years ago. I thank God that he has forgiven me through the blood of His son Jesus.

    It is reasonable to assume that we should not expect God’s protection while WE are purposely killing our own children. However, I would be less harsh in my statements. Not every woman who has killed their offspring has in turn died themselves, so we cannot assume God will deal with everyone in that way. I suppose God deals with each of us as He sees best. We also must REMEMBER that these younger people are victims of social engineering-they’ve been led to believe abortion is NORMAL. And when God has been ‘taken out of the picture’ in these girls’ lives…who can they go to for answers to this personal stuff?
    Those of us in Society, who live by godly standards, had better be cautious when we blame these girls. We must ask ourselves ‘WHAT HAVE WE BEEN DOING to correct this social wrong before the girls lose themselves in situations such as these.
    Preaching is not necessary, but teaching them by example works wonders.

    It’s the BLOOD of the innocent crying out to God for the HARSH treatment they’ve received… having been torn limb from limb or burned to death, for how many years now?

    When HE answers their screams for justice, there’s nothing harsh about that, the victims of abortion deserve no-less from our merciful God than you or anyone else.

    We all share the burden as a nation having allowed 60 million + children to be slaughtered and sold to the highest bidder… where is the outrage for this atrocity?

    How many will continue to vote for people who do nothing to stop this and only make it more available?

    And typically under the cloak of “I’m not voting for that, it’s this other reason I vote for that candidate”

    Which is always a self-serving ‘I want what I want and nothing else matters’ thing… just like abortion.

    We deserve no-less than God’s wrath… still HE remains merciful, but for how much longer?

    Wouldn’t that be your question as a victim of abortion?

    How is that harsh?

    “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD. Lev. 18:21 When ancients sacrificed their babies to Molek they thought their lives would prosper and their future children would, also. Jesus said “seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”Matt 6:33 I plead for Christ Jesus’ sake that you seek Him first. Second, “If we confess our sin He is faithful and just to forgive our sin and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1John 1:9. In the name of Jesus I tell you the truth.

  • I do feel sorry for the young woman and her family, but she made a choice and the results were not good, the same as the baby that was aborted. Thou shalt not kill [ meaning murder ], and God does and will always stand by his 10 Commandments. I do hope they find the ones that have done this and not just slap their hands, but put them in prison for murder.

  • P Kathy, God has a plan and soon enough there is a new time coming, called the 1000 years of peace and during that time, you will see your children [ those that died ] and will raise them. You have learned much and have become wise in your learning. God loves you and knows your story…a good time is coming.

    I grieve at the harsh comments that DO make God seem like a tyrant!
    I think there is such a PHARISITICAL mindset in the Body of Christ (meaning: Pharisees were rule followers with pseudo-righteousness. Their sin was PRIDE. Did they lead many (any) to the truth of God. No, they even rejected God Himself! He didn’t follow the “Rules”!)
    They were the spiritual leaders of the day – with the ONLY truth that could save and they made it a stench because of their own lack of humility and love.
    As believers we don’t love by tolerating sin – we call it what it is – but it is the manner in which we do it.
    Jesus never apologized for being holy and sinless. But He didn’t parade His purity and tell His disciples “You will get what you deserve!”
    Yes, the wages of sin is death – BUT the rest of this verse is “The gift of God is eternal LIFE in Christ Jesus our Lord!” (Romans 6:23)

    Do we have an attitude of loving the sinner and hating the sin?
    Or an attitude of condemnation, a critical spirit, and a judgmental attitude?

    How do we teach a grace we most likely have not experienced!
    If we in the Body of Christ want to see change we must first humble ourselves, seek God’s face, turn from OUR wicked ways, and ask for forgiveness.
    Then He will hear from heaven, forgive OUR sins, and HEAL our LAND.
    (2 Chronicles 7:14)
    Judgment starts in the house of God first (1 Peter 4:17).

    I am Pro-life. I am a Believer. I have not had an abortion.
    I GRIEVE at the blood that has been shed for mercenary materialistic gain BECAUSE GOD GRIEVES FOR THE SHEDDING OF INNOCENT BLOOD!
    We should grieve because He grieves – not because we want to point fingers, call names, or play the “blame game!”

    Jesus gave us the example of what to do.
    Call the sin what it is – Sin. (Good biblical example: John 8:1-11)
    BUT — do so in the love of God Himself — who loved us so much that when we were yet sinners (and in opposition to HIM) HE DIED FOR US. (Romans 5:8)
    Until we can set aside our Pharisee attitudes WHY would anyone believe there is a different way to live?
    Why would they want to be a Pharisee?
    I tried it for years and FAILED miserably!

    In 1 John 1:9 God tells us that if we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness.
    That doesn’t mean I still don’t have the capacity to sin.
    But when I am living day by day and moment by moment in His presence, filled with His Holy Spirit – sin loses its appeal. I don’t want to sin!
    I am more aware of my sin. I am more willing to quickly turn aside from it and ask God to forgive me. (1 John 1:9) and that is how I found the true GRACE God offers to His children.

    That is what I want to offer to others who are lost, hurting, and so desperately searching.


    Stay in God’s Word, Pray, confess your sins, receive God’s forgiveness, cleansing and grace.
    Humble yourselves before the Lord.

    THEN share (preach) this precious gift of grace to the lost of this world!

    You can’t change a sinner’s heart – only God can do that! (John 6:44)
    As we walk in light of His presence we become the fragrance of Christ (a Christian). and those walking in darkness will be drawn to Him too!
    (2 Corinthians 2:15 and Matthew 5:14)
