Planned Parenthood Requested “Early Shutdown” to Ambulance Responding for 15-year Old Suffering Patient

Asked for the ambulance to shut off lights and sirens as they approached the Kalamazoo abortion business despite a “Priority One” medical emergency.

Kalamazoo, MI – A clip of a 911 call and other records recently received by Operation Rescue show that a 15-year old girl was transported from a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan, to a local hospital.

The recording and CAD printout show the teenager was having difficulty breathing, a critical emergency the Planned Parenthood abortion facility was not equipped to handle.

The ambulance was dispatched “Priority 1,” indicating a serious, life-threatening condition. A Planned Parenthood worker instructed the ambulance to pick up the patient from the rear delivery entrance and also requested an “early shutdown,” presumably of lights and sirens as the ambulance arrived. Shutting down lights and sirens could cause the ambulance to be delayed by traffic.

The incident took place on September 10, 2015. No further information is available on the 15-year old’s condition.

Abortionists who have been known to work at the Kalamazoo Planned Parenthood include:

Mandy Gittler, who was responsible for the abortion-related death of Tonya Reaves in 2012. Planned Parenthood paid out a settlement of $1.5 million to Reaves surviving son.
Virgil C. Reid, III, who also serves as medical director for Planned Parenthood Illinois, and worked at the same Planned Parenthood abortion center where Reaves was fatally injured.
Laura D. Castleman, who has written extensively on manual vacuum aspiration techniques for abortion procedures and provides abortion training for the National Abortion Federation.

“Once again an ill-equipped Planned Parenthood abortion business has sent a suffering patient to the hospital for emergency care it could not provide,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “The young lady is lucky to be alive, no thanks to Planned Parenthood or its dangerous staff of abortionists. There is no such thing as a ‘safe’ abortion business and our research into abortion abuses proves it.”

Operation Rescue, which works to document cases of medical emergencies and other abuses at abortion facilities, has recorded nearly 100 cases of patient-related medical emergencies at abortion centers across the United States in the past 18 months alone. Those incidents represent only a small fraction of women who are actually hurt by abortion each year.

America’s Most Dangerous: St. Louis Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes 31st Abortion Patient in 7 Years

St. Louis, MO — Mary Maschmeier, President of Defenders of the Unborn, has reported that an abortion patient of the Planned Parenthood facility in St. Louis, Missouri, was transported by ambulance to a local hospital on Friday, May 13, 2016, at about 3:00 p.m.

Maschmeier told Operation Rescue that the patient suffered a “botched” abortion that represents the 31st abortion-related medical emergency documented at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood since 2009. Operation Rescue has declared it among the most dangerous abortion facilities in America.

“The public has the right to know why so many women are being maimed at this abortion center, especially in light of the fact that Planned Parenthood continues to receive tax dollars,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

That Planned Parenthood office is the only remaining abortion facility in Missouri.

It recently came under investigation by the Missouri Interim Senate Sanctity of Life Committee, which discovered that aborted baby remains from that facility were being illegally dumped in Indiana.

The committee issued subpoenas to Mary Kogut, CEO of Planned Parenthood of the St. Louis Region, and James Miller, owner of Pathology Services Inc., (the pathology company used by Planned Parenthood’s high volume St. Louis abortion facility), seeking information about tissue disposal policies as well as the numerous medical emergencies that regularly occur at the St. Louis facility.

At first Kogut and Miller resisted the subpoenas, but once contempt proceedings were initiated by the State Senate, Kogut capitulated and agreed to turn over documents. Miller, whose pathology business would have been responsible for shipping the aborted baby remains out of state, took advantage of his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself.

Little is known about the nature of most of the medical emergencies that take place at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood, including the most recent incident. Emergency 911 records can shed light on why women are being injured, but these records have been denied to Operation Rescue by the St. Louis Fire Department. In order to preserve the right of the public to access public records, Operation Rescue sued to access the 911 records. That case is ongoing.

“The St. Louis Planned Parenthood continues to hospitalize suffering women at an alarming rate,” said Newman. “We look forward to the day when the full truth is finally told about abuses at this barbaric abortion mill, and it is shut down once and for all.”

Emergency Transport of Abortion Patient Delayed by Evasive Caller and Distracted Dispatcher

By Cheryl Sullenger

Wichita, KS — The emergency transport of an abortion patient in “urgent” condition to a local hospital was needlessly delayed by an intentionally vague abortion clinic worker and a distracted 911 dispatcher. This incident took place at South Wind Women’s Center abortion facility in Wichita, Kansas, on April 15, 2016.

Operation Rescue obtained 911 records that indicate a patient was in need of emergency transport to Wesley Medical Center, a nearby hospital. She was transported Code Yellow, which means she was an urgent patient, but not necessarily in a life-threatening situation.

Such calls usually require lights and sirens, but the caller from South Wind told the dispatcher that they were not needed.

There was essentially no sense of urgency shown for the patient in the 911 recording. The dispatcher is heard interrupting the abortion facility caller and having her wait while the dispatcher handled radio traffic with firefighters on unrelated and seemingly non-emergency calls.

The South Wind employee only noted that the patient was in stable condition, but never answered questions about what happened to her.

“Well, the patient is in stable condition, but the doctor feels that it’s indicated for her to be transported,” the South Wind caller said.

The South Wind employee seemed concerned about how long it would take the ambulance to arrive, making the delay in dispatching units even more concerning.

“Listening to the 911 recording, it seems like getting the patient urgently-needed emergency care in a timely manner was an afterthought with both the clinic worker and the dispatcher,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “The abortion caller was focused on not revealing too much about the patient’s condition, while the dispatcher was more concerned about water in the street.”

South Wind recently built a nine-foot tall fence around the property and put in a new automatic gate on the north side of the building so ambulances could avoid pro-life supporters who offer help to women at the main west gate.

“We have caught this abortion business engaging in deceptive behavior in the past. Now they are acting like they have even more to hide,” said Newman.

In 2011, the legislature passed an abortion facility licensing law that would have prevented this clinic from ever opening. Because that law has been stuck in a county court for five long years – with no end in sight — South Wind has never been inspected and remains outside of any oversight authority.

“The fact that Attorney General Derek Schmidt has dragged his feet on this law for five years is unconscionable. He is ultimately responsible for every women that is hurt by the South Wind abortion clinic,” said Newman. “It is a source of shame for an administration that claims to be pro-life.”

Please contact Attorney General Derek Schmidt and demand that he defend the 2011 abortion facility licensing law before someone dies at an unaccountable abortion business.
