As NAF Celebrates, Video Documents Two Abortion Injuries Inflicted by NAF Member

Video reveals two urgent reasons to deny tax-funding to abortion providers

Milwaukee, WI – As the National Abortion Federation prepared for its annual conference in Chicago this week, one of its former Board members sent two abortion patients to the hospital. Two women were transported for emergency care in one day from the Affiliated Medical Services abortion clinic located at 1428 North Farwell Avenue in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The condition of the two women is currently unknown.

Both incidents took place on Friday, April 8, 2011, less than two hours apart.

The first ambulance arrived with sirens blaring and lights flashing at about 10:50 AM. Pro-life participants in a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil witnessed the incident. One recorded it on his telephone video recorder. Dan Miller, Milwaukee coordinator for 40 Days for Life provided Operation Rescue with the raw video.

After some time, emergency workers emerged from the abortion clinic with a woman on a gurney. Clinic escorts held up a blanket or dark sheet to hide the incident from the pro-life witnesses who were documenting it. The woman was rushed to Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital.

At approximately 12:55 PM, the second ambulance arrived, this time without lights or sirens. The video shows an ambulance of a different color and parked in a different place, leaving no doubt that there were two separate incidents. Again, clinic escorts held up a dark sheet to conceal the woman on a gurney that was loaded into the awaiting ambulance and taken to an unknown location.

“The abortionist cannot hide his dirty work behind ‘sheets of shame.’ While we only see a small fraction of the abortion injuries inflicted upon women, the truth about unsafe clinics and shoddy abortionists continues to come out,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “These are two more urgent reasons why our tax dollars must not fund abortion providers.”

The abortionist reportedly on duty was Bernard Smith, a current member of the NAF, who boasts on his abortion clinic web site of having “expertise in Quality Assurance and safe clinical practice.” Unfortunately, that so-called expertise failed the two women and their babies who landed in the hospital.

“Smith sent two women to the hospital. Now it’s time for the authorities to hold him accountable for the injuries he caused,” said Newman. “We will be filing a complaint with the Wisconsin Department of Regulation & Licensing based on these two emergency transports.”

    I’m sure you did, but catch the name of the ambulance and number and if no sirens are used (if it is normally mandatory) and turn them in to police, or ambulance management. No crime should be hidden. This is not Wall St.

    it’s bad enough to have one ambulance arrive but TWO????!!!! and two hours apart for that matter! someone is sloppy on the job……oh, i guess when you kill for a living you are doing a sloppy job anyways……but aleast try and do what they say they do “safe abortions” HA no such thing!

  • 1. Remember that all the information isn’t in yet. A staff person could have taken sick, or a family member passed out. A patient could have suffered complications from an ectopic pregnancy before she was even taken back and a medical history completed. Yeah, a botched abortion is the most likely scenario, but let’s not announce it until it’s confirmed.

    2. Let’s remember the confirmed deaths of women who trusted NAF members.

    Now abortion will be safe when legal!

    weather you agree or disagree about abortion rights I would think that sheilding a possible patient if it were a patient from public view and video tapeing is a respectful thing to do. What is not respectful are the individuals that think its ok to take pictures of other peoples medical misfortunes. While I would agree to a indaviduals first amendment rights on freedom of speach or peaceful demonstration I dont agree with infringing on a persons right to privacy. I wonder if those that take the pictures or videos would like it if it were them or their family.

    Its ashamed those who take a pledge to do no harm kill everyday the most innocent. They do this on the alter of convience, where no love is found .Tho shall not murder. They have surpasssed hitler on killing folks. So stop and think if they will kill the innocent , one that has done no wrong, when you get sick or your grandmother get very ill do you honestly think that they will spear you . It is more conveint to do away with you than to deal with the problem. GOD PLEASE REMOVE THIS SCERG OFF OUR NATION AND GIVE US HEARTS OF FLESH NOT STONE. The key to a good life is compassion. what do you think Ronny Groda a disciple of CHRIST for life> you can send me your comments at disciplesofchristforlife@gmail.com
