Houston Planned Parenthood Befuddles 911 Dispatcher with Attempt to Obfuscate Abortion Hemorrhage

By Cheryl Sullenger

houstonambulance08142013-featuredHouston, Texas – By now abortionists around the nation are well aware that Operation Rescue and other pro-life organizations are accessing public 911 records to verify and document abortion-related medical emergencies that are often witnessed by street activists outside American abortion clinics.

In some instances, abortion clinics have resorted to using private ambulance services that are not subject to open records laws. Others have pressured county records officials to over-redact public information in order to hide the seriousness of all-too-common abortion-related emergencies from the public.

In extreme situations, abortionists even have been known to violate patient care standards by transporting women suffering life-threatening abortion complications to emergency rooms using private vehicles so as not to draw attention to their latest medical mishaps.

However, in Texas, the monolithic Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Houston recently resorted to new tactics to obfuscate the severity of an abortion-related medical emergency and confuse anyone who might access the 911 record.

During a call to 911 placed on December, 14, 2013, from the towering Houston Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on Gulf Freeway, the caller is heard using medical abbreviations and “shorthand” terminology to conceal the fact that an abortion patient was suffering uncontrolled bleeding and heavy blood loss.

But the tactic backfired and served only to confuse the dispatcher and delay emergency care to the hemorrhaging abortion patient, who was eventually transported to Ben Taub Hospital in Houston.

Listen to the full 911 recording.

This transcribed excerpt is revealing of the lengths to which Planned Parenthood will go to conceal the fact that its abortionists are hurting women:

Planned Parenthood Caller: We have a 33-year old G-6, P-2 –

Dispatcher: Okay, what does that mean?

Planned Parenthood Caller: Um, she’s – um, been pregnant six times and has two living children.

Dispatcher: Okay. How old –

Planned Parenthood Caller: — Transport with IV running from ASC to Ben Taub. Um, she is status post complete A-B.

Dispatcher: What does that mean?

Planned Parenthood Caller: Abortion.

Dispatcher: Okay –

Planned Parenthood Caller: — With an EBL of 500.

Dispatcher: EBL?

Planned Parenthood Caller: Estimated blood loss.

Dispatcher: Oh, okay.

Planned Parenthood Caller: And she has no drug allergies.

Dispatcher: But she needs to go to Ben Taub — why?

Planned Parenthood Caller: Because she’s having some, um, bleeding that we can’t control.

Dispatcher: Oh, okay, okay, okay. That’s what I needed to know.

It took a long two minutes and six seconds into the 911 call before the dispatcher finally understood why the Planned Parenthood worker had called.

To translate, Planned Parenthood had just completed an abortion on a patient who was essentially hemorrhaging and had already lost 500 milliliters of blood in a relatively short time. The abortionist on duty could not control the bleeding, so they requested emergency transport from Planned Parenthood (an ASC or Ambulatory Surgical Center) to the hospital.

Just to give an idea of how much 500 ml of blood is in terms of American measures, she had lost approximately 17 ounces of blood – about half of the allowable blood loss for an average-sized woman undergoing surgery.

“If Planned Parenthood thinks their ‘insider lingo’ will outsmart us, they completely underestimate the Pro-life movement. This kind of nonsense is actually endangering the lives of women and delaying their access to emergency care when every minute might mean the difference between life and death,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It just goes to show that for Planned Parenthood, covering up their mistakes takes priority over the lives and health of women.”

ABORTION DEATH: 911 Records Show Cleveland Abortion Patient “Not Breathing At All”

Cleveland, Ohio — Operation Rescue has obtained a 911 recording and Computer Aided Dispatch transcript that indicates a patient of Preterm, a Cleveland, Ohio, abortion clinic, has died.

Records, which were obtained through a public records request, show that at 10:59 a.m. on Friday, March 21, 2014, an employee of Preterm dialed 911 and reported to a dispatcher there was a 22-year-old female patient at the clinic who was not breathing at all.

Preterm-03212014-featuredThe caller also indicated that the patient was unconscious and receiving CPR at the time of the call, but efforts to restart respiration had been unsuccessful.

“The lack of a sense of urgency really struck me as I was listening to the 911 recording,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “A woman was dying or dead, and there just seemed to be no real hurry to respond to the dispatcher.”

The CAD transcript, which lists event chronology for 911 emergencies, showed that units were dispatched just moments after the 911 call began and that it took paramedics three minutes to arrive at the clinic at 11:02 a.m. when they began emergency measures.

At 11:21, paramedics transmitted information about the patient’s condition to the University Hospital Case Medical Center and began to transport her to the emergency room, arriving at 11:26 a.m. The ambulance listed its status as “cleared” at 11:27 a.m.

At no time during the 28 minutes that emergency responders were in contact with the patient was there any indication that the patient ever resumed respiration.

The CAD Transcript contained the “9-E-1,” the most serious of life-threatening medical emergencies, along with the notations “Cardiac or Respiratory Arrest/Death” and “Not breathing at all.”

Pastor Dale Henkel was on the scene and took video and photos of the incident, which have been released by Operation Rescue in a video that also features the 911 audio. He told Operation Rescue that the patient was African-American, as are about 80 percent of the high-volume clinic’s abortion business.

The video clip showed that emergency workers were not performing any kind of treatment on the woman as she was wheeled on a gurney to the awaiting ambulance. There appeared to be a small towel over the woman’s face.

As a matter of practice, paramedics or EMTs do not pronounce death at the scene, but instead transport the victim to the hospital where a physician can pronounce a time of death.

Pastor Henkel told Operation Rescue that after the ambulance left the Preterm abortion clinic, it was followed by a woman thought to be a nurse wearing blue surgical scrubs, the office manager, and a man believed to be abortionist Mohammad Rezaee.

Last year, an Ohio woman sued Rezaee for malpractice after an abortion done by him failed and she later birthed a healthy “miracle baby.”

This is not the first abortion complication recorded at Preterm. On April 13, 2013, activists photographed clinic escorts loading an injured abortion patient into a private vehicle for transport to an unknown location.

“It’s ironic that the abortion cartel has complained so loudly about the new abortion clinic standards in Ohio. Based on Friday’s incident, it appears that the regulations aren’t strict enough,” said Newman.

“If it had not been for alert pro-life activists, this tragedy surly would have been swept under the rug. But now, we plan to submit complaints in order to hold the Preterm abortion clinic and staff accountable so this doesn’t happen to another woman.”

Six Emergency Vehicles Swarm Boston Planned Parenthood During Medical Emergency

Boston, MA – Pro-life activists photographed two ambulances responding to a medical emergency at Planned Parenthood in Boston, Massachusetts, on Wednesday, March 12, 2014. A patient was loaded into one of the ambulances and whisked away to a local hospital for emergency care.

During the incident, which was reported by Operation Rescue Boston, additional responders descending upon Planned Parenthood included a third EMT vehicle, a fire truck, and at least two Boston Police cruisers.

Bill Cotter of OR Boston reported that a “well-placed source” informed him that the woman “suffered an allergic reaction to an anesthetic.”

It is unknown whether the reaction was experienced before or after the abortion took place.

“It is outrageous that Planned Parenthood abortion clinics continue to injure women and kill children while masquerading as a legitimate health care provider,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Because Planned Parenthood receives over a half-billion dollars of tax-payer funds each year, this kind of quackery is indefensible. We renew our call to defund Planned Parenthood of all tax money, which is all that is keeping most of them open. If we want to stop abortion from hurting women and killing babies, pulling their public funding would probably do the trick.”

In separate incidents, pro-life activists documented ambulances transporting women from this same Planned Parenthood abortion clinic on September 5, 2012, July 7, 2012, and January 7, 2011. It is highly likely that more medical emergencies than this occurred at this location outside the presence of pro-life supporters.

Planned Parenthood of Boston has been the subject of lawsuits and other actions. Operation Rescue has acquired dozens of documents reflecting their problems that can be viewed at AbortionDocs.org.
