Ambulance Transports Woman with Breathing Difficulties from Unsanitary Abortion Center

By Cheryl Sullenger

Dallas, TX – An ambulance was called to Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas, Texas, on January 12, 2017, to aid a woman who was removed from the abortion facility in a wheel chair prior to being loaded into the ambulance.

According to radio communications obtained by Operation Rescue, an ambulance was dispatched to the abortion facility at 12:21 pm. The recording indicated that the woman in need of emergency care was having difficulty breathing.

Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center (SWSC) is considered a high-volume abortion facility, conducting approximately 50 surgical abortions per day. It is owned and operated by aging abortionist Curtis Boyd, who turns 80 in March and is said to still conduct surgical abortions there.

Boyd is perhaps best known as the owner of Southwestern Women’s Options in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the largest late-term abortion facility in the U.S. That facility was recently referred to the New Mexico Attorney General’s office for criminal prosecution related to the illegal sale of aborted baby remains and failing to provide informed consent to women.

SWSC is licensed as an “Ambulatory Surgical Center,” which supposedly requires it to maintain a higher standard than facilities licensed as “Abortion Clinics.”

However, the most recent inspection report available for SWSC, dated November 24, 2015, tells a different story about horrific conditions women have been subjected to there.

Within the 22 pages of violations were found a litany of problems, including untrained staff, unsanitary conditions, failure to maintain the sterility of surgical instruments, and failure to follow up with women who were given abortion drugs, to name a few.

However, perhaps the most shocking finding was related to SWSC’s storage and disposal of contaminated waste and aborted baby remains.

Inspectors found the Biohazard Room packed “floor to ceiling” with bags of soiled linens and biohazard boxes. There was a refrigerator that contained aborted baby remains, but the room was so junky, that the inspector could not access that refrigerator.

On the second day of the inspection, bags of dirty linens were found crammed into nearly every available space, including the patient recovery room. Again, access to the refrigerator storing aborted baby remains was not possible due to the obstructions, which the staff never bothered to remove.

If the storage refrigerator could not be accessed, one can only wonder how the remains from the day’s abortions could possibly be refrigerated, and how it was possible for a disposal firm to collect the refrigerated remains.

Unfortunately, SWSC isn’t unique when it comes to badly failing health and safety inspections. The most recent inspection reports available for each abortion facility in Texas were obtained by Operation Rescue. They showed 16 out of 17 abortion facilities failed their inspections and were cited for a wide range of violations.

In addition to the unsanitary conditions and practices found at SWSC, it also has a history of medical emergencies, including one that took place on February 29, 2016.

“Licensing regulations are only as good as their enforcement, and in Texas, the Department of Health Care Quality has not adequately enforced those laws for the protection of the public from abortion dumps like the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “That leads to women needing emergency medical care, as we just saw.”

But women seeking abortions at the Dallas facility have ready access to alternatives than can help them avoid the dangers that lurk at SWSC. Across the parking lot from the busy abortion business, Birth Choice, a pregnancy help center that is fully accredited by the Accreditation of Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC). It provides FREE help to pregnant ladies six days a week.

“We pray more women will take advantage of the help available at pregnancy help centers like Birth Choice,” said Newman. “It would spare not only the lives of their babies, but also possibly spare the women an unplanned trip to the emergency room or maybe even their own lives.”

Background on Boyd: “Am I killing? Yes, I am. I know that.”

Unlucky: 13th Abortion Patient Removed From CA Abortion Mill Covered Like Mummy

Thirteenth medical emergency in four years at this notorious California abortion facility.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bakersfield, CA – When the gurney rolled out of the Family Planning Associates abortion facility in Bakersfield, California, on the morning of January 10, 2017, it didn’t look good for the patient.

She lay motionless on the gurney — completely covered from head to toe with a white sheet — as emergency responders loaded her into the ambulance. There wasn’t even an IV attached to her arm, as is often the case in this kind of emergency.

The ambulance had been greeted at the front door of the abortion business by Donald Clyde Willis, the abortionist on duty at the time of the incident. Facility workers at first came out to deploy sheets to block pro-life activists from filming the incident, but then decided against it and returned inside the facility.

Terri Palmquist, a long-time pro-life activist with LifeSavers Ministries posted video to Facebook Live, imploring viewers to let people know what was happening. She sought prayers for the woman on the gurney and her baby.

This was the 13th medial emergency documented at the Bakersfield Family Planning Associates since August 2012.

The abortion business, which operates a chain of 22 abortion centers, has experienced difficulty maintaining an abortion provider at the Bakersfield facility. Willis is the latest in a long list of abortionists, most of which have left after medical emergencies were documented.

“The Bakersfield FPA has such an atrocious safety record that it really should be shut down,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We plan to file another round of complaints and pray this time, the regulators in California will do their duty and close this dangerous abortion business for good.”

911 Transcripts Reveal Effort to Cover Up Serious Abortion Injuries at St. Louis Planned Parenthood

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – Operation Rescue has received written transcripts of two 911 calls placed by the troubled St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion facility that reveal serious abortion-related complications and an effort to cover them up.

The first shows a facility employee refusing to give information to the 911 dispatcher because she was worried it would show up on “the web-site.”

In the transcribed call, which took place after the Fire Department first agreed to comply with public records laws last year, the female patient suffered from “serious” vaginal bleeding, apparently due to an abortion procedure. The St. Louis Planned Parenthood is known to be high volume abortion center.

Dispatchers are trained to ask questions in order to help the emergency responders be prepared for the specific condition of each patient. A lack of information may lead to delays in receiving the appropriate medical care.

The transcript reads in part:

Planned Parenthood: We need a transfer immediately.

911: Ok, Alright. Is the bleeding serious?

Planned Parenthood: Yes.

911: Ok, Alright. I just have some questions for you, we do have an ambulance en-route. How old is she again?

Planned Parenthood: [Redacted] However we decline to give any more information, we will give it to the team when they come, because of the patient’s privacy.

911: Ok, well it’s related to us [be]cause we are sending you the ambulance. We have immunity regards to the person’s privacy.

Planned Parenthood: However, it still shows up on the web-site.

911: The call shows up on the web-site?

Planned Parenthood: Uhum.

It was unclear to what web site the Planned Parenthood worker was referring. There is no web site operated by the City of St. Louis or the St. Louis Fire Department that publishes 911 information.

“The clinic worker may have been referring to the OperationRescue.org website. Information we publish related to emergency communications is a matter of public record and is obtained legally through FOIA requests,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Refusing to answer a 911 dispatcher’s questions in just another way Planned Parenthood is attempting to evade public information laws and deny information that the public has a right to know. They are desperate to cover up the truth about the dangers their shoddy abortion business poses to women.”

The second 911 transcript was related to a patient who was suffering from multiple seizures in the Recovery Room at Planned Parenthood. Very little information was shared with the 911 dispatcher about the patient’s condition or what might have caused the seizures, but the conversation was clear that the woman was recovering from an abortion procedure.

At one point the emergency dispatcher asked, “Was she pregnant?”

The Planned Parenthood caller responded, “She was.”

The undated transcripts were produced in response to a Freedom of Information Act request after several ambulances were seen at the Planned Parenthood facility in recent months.

Operation Rescue sued the St. Louis Fire Department 2014 for access to a flood of 911 records originating from the Planned Parenthood abortion facility that had been witnessed by pro-life activists.

In a settlement agreement reached in April 2016, the Fire Department released to Operation Rescue a list of 58 calls, 50 of which were listed as Urgent Priority 1 dispatches, a designation that includes life-threatening injuries. According to the agreement specific dates must be redacted, but date ranges are allowed.

The recently transcribed incidents took place sometime between May and November, 2016. Three emergency transports were made from the St. Louis Planned Parenthood facility during that time frame, with a fourth one occurring after it.

Planned Parenthood and other abortion groups are currently working with city officials to further cover up abortion injuries and other abuses.

Two St. Louis Aldermen are attempting to limit the activities of pro-life activists by including “pregnancy and ‘reproductive health decisions’” as “protected classes” under the city’s anti-discrimination law. This would make it a crime to “interfere” with abortion decisions. Trying to dissuade women from abortion would likely fall under this law, if passed.

The Aldermen also plan to introduce a buffer zone law, which would make it difficult for pro-life activists to document medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood.

As reported by Operation Rescue, on December 31, 2016, pro-life activist John Ryan was falsely arrested on the public sidewalk outside the St. Louis Planned Parenthood. He was charged with making a “terrorist threat” to a Planned Parenthood worker, even though there were numerous witnesses that can verify he never did any such thing. The suspicious arrest is thought to be a contrived attempt to provide a reason to support the two proposed laws that would dramatically curtail free speech rights.

“Planned Parenthood is desperate to cover up the truth about its shoddy abortion business. They will lie, they will cheat, and they will mislead, or do whatever else it takes to make sure they can keep killing babies in St. Louis for profit,” said Newman. “We have more documentation that exposes additional safety issues at this Planned Parenthood abortion business that we plan to release soon that is even worse than this 911 transcript. It will show that Planned Parenthood is a dangerous victimizer that needs to be shut down for good.”
