Breaking! Planned Parenthood Patient Rushed to Hospital Hours Ago in St. Louis

St. Louis, Missouri – Pro-life activists were on the scene at Planned Parenthood in St. Louis, Missouri, this morning at approximately 11:10 a.m. when an ambulance arrived and rushed a gurney into the abortion clinic.

According to an eyewitness report from James Capps, an intern for the Coalition For Life St. Louis, a woman was brought out of the clinic about 10 minutes later while two Planned Parenthood employees tried to prevent anyone from photographing the event.

“Two [Planned Parenthood] workers . . .were holding a large gray screen in an attempt to shield viewers from seeing the girl. But I could still see her from my position; it was a young black girl on a stretcher covered neck to toe in white sheets,” reported Capps. “Talk about a scary, heart-wrenching experience. That is something I do not want to see again. . . Simply put I was terrified for her. Please pray.”

Capps snapped photos with his cell phone of the ambulance at the scene, which raced away toward a local hospital. The condition of the woman and the extent of her injuries are unknown at this time.

This is the 32nd medical emergency Operation Rescue has documented at Planned Parenthood abortion clinics nationwide since January, 2012.

Mary Mashmier of Defenders of the Unborn has told Operation Rescue that since 2009, her organization has documented 19 previous medical emergencies at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion clinic. Complaints were filed with the medical Board and other agencies after each incident, by no action has ever been taken.

“It is wrong that women are continually placed at risk of life-threatening injury and death at this obviously dangerous Planned Parenthood abortion clinic while authorities that should be looking out for patient safety turn a blind eye,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We call on the Missouri Board of Registration for the Healing Arts to immediately halt abortions at the Planned Parenthood office in St. Louis until a full investigation in the rash of medical emergencies can take place.”

    I pray this woman’s life is spared in the process of the murder of her child. Even if she doesn’t sustain physical injury, she will always carry emotional and spiritual scars. Abortions kill children and wound so many others. I have had two abortions in the past. I have lived in denial and self hate for 11 years. I am starting to heal after going to a Rachel’s Vineyard Retreat and an eight week class called Surrendering the Secret with Care Net Pregnancy. Jesus is the answer my recovery has lead me to. He has gently let me know that I don’t have to punish myself anymore. He took the punishment for me. I have since named my children, April Eliana and Evan Xavier. Eliana is Hebrew for God has answered me and Xavier means bright new house which is were they are! I am grieving for them and from now on I will include them when I talk about my other children. Just like so many other grieving Mother’s say about their abortions, I will be silent NO MORE!!


    I hope and pray that this woman will survive whatever has happened at that clinic. She is definitely in my prayers. The link above shows my abortion experience and how I got through it. It was the worst mistake of my life. The only way I got through it was because of God. I know that it is a decision I will never make again. I finally have forgiven myself because I know that God has forgiven me. Hopefully my story will help women make the right decision to have their baby.

    Thursday, October 11, 2013, while participating for the first time in a peaceful prayer vigil at the Planned Parenthood facility located at 4251 Forest Park Ave, St. Louis, MO, shortly before 2pm, a St. Louis Fire Department ladder truck arrived and two responders entered the Planned Parenthood building. Within minutes, an ambulance arrived and a team transported a person on a gurney to the ambulance at 2:02pm. Staffers attempted to block the public view of the incident by covering the person with a sheet and using a large fabric screen to shield the transport activity.
    As I witnessed this event, my heart felt anxious and full of sorrow. My thoughts were flooding with questions, speculation and possible scenarios that could lead to a need for a 911 emergency call at a Planned Parenthood site.
    …Was this due to complications from a completed abortion which resulted in the death of a child and put a woman’s life in danger?…
    …Was this person a teen whose parents didn’t even know their daughter was pregnant and having an abortion, but will get the call that she has been hospitalized or had died?…
    …Was this a medical incident totally unrelated to an abortion?
    With hot topic issues there are always views, complaints, blame and more. With the abortion issue, one can continue to question, one can judge the women, one can blame the clinics, our government or the laws enacted; one can be shocked by all the senselessness of abortion, and disagree or get angry with Pro-Choicers and Pro-Lifers for their beliefs and stances. But, as we think, feel and act, we could do well to remember that we are all spiritual beings in human bodies-each of us created complete with emotions, a free mind, free will, and plagued with our own set of frailties and sins.
    I am of the opinion that if you want to see change, don’t bother judging or complaining-Act! One person’s action can go a long way toward promoting change. And, as a person of faith who desires change, you Act and Pray.
    The Coalition of Life community does that. They put prayer where their mouth is, where their thoughts lie and their hearts rest as they stand in peaceful vigil. The Coalition of Life St. Louis is a community based Christian pro-life organization made up of over 90 churches and thousands of individuals who are working to end abortion in St. Louis peacefully and prayerfully. From September 25th to November 3rd, Coalition of Life is one of many communities in cities from coast to coast joining together for the 40 Days of Life campaign. 40 Days of Life is an intensive effort designed to raise awareness, save lives, bring healing and lead our nation to repentance for the sin of abortion through three components: 40 days of prayer and fasting, 40 days of peaceful vigil and 40 days of community.
    During my brief, 1 hour vigil, experience, I saw firsthand why prayer is needed. Whether one is Pro-Choice of Pro-Life, all must agree that abortion is a surgical procedure and with all surgeries there is risk. Babies are dying and women’s physical and emotional health is being jeopardized. Advocates continue to address key issues existing within this issue hoping it will lead to the desired change-an end to abortion. Investigating the 911 emergency responses to this Planned Parenthood facility is a good starting point.

    As we wait, we should remain ever hopeful, trusting that prayers make a difference…praying for Agape love to reign in all human spirits…praying that each person on earth connects their spirit with God…praying for the time when love will rule all choices and, as such, all violence on Earth will cease.
