Houston, Texas – As Infowars.com is launching a protest at Planned Parenthood in Austin, Texas, Operation Rescue has released four 911 records related to medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood’s abortion facility in Houston.

The 911 calls were placed on January 31, February 6, February 25, and February 26, 2015.

According to the Infowars.com web site, “Infowarriors and pro-life activists are encouraged to come and peacefully protest Planned Parenthood’s admitted targeting of the black community and all innocent children, as outlined by founder Margaret Sanger.”

Protest Details:
Time: 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST
Date: Thursday, May 21
Location: 201 E Ben White Blvd, Austin, TX 78704

The Houston Planned Parenthood, where the recent medical emergencies took place, is located an area that targets poor urban women of color.

“There is an old adage that says actions speak louder than words. After hospitalizing four women in less than 30 days, Planned Parenthood can no longer pretend to care about women,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Planned Parenthood clinics are not equipped to cope with even the most common abortion complications and must call for emergency assistance and transport when abortions go wrong. And they appear to go wrong all too often at the Houston Planned Parenthood, where unfortunately Black and Hispanic women are bearing the brunt of the abuse.”

According to the 911 records, Planned Parenthood’s Director of Nursing, Margo Trentwood, placed a call to 911 on January 31 at 12:43 p.m. requesting a medical transport for a 19-year old patient who was experiencing vaginal bleeding and other unspecified complications after a “medical procedure.” An ambulance transported the woman to a nearby hospital.

Listen to the 911 call from January 31, 2015:

As previously reported by Operation Rescue, on February 6, 2015, at 2:20 p.m. a Planned Parenthood employee who identified herself as Cecelia, requested an emergency transport for a patient suffering a possible uterine perforation. She described the woman as “awake and alert.”

A perforation is when the cannula, a plastic tube used to suction out the aborted baby body parts, or some other instrument is pushed through the soft wall of the uterus into the abdominal cavity. This can cause hemorrhaging and infection if not promptly treated, and can sometimes cause damage to the bladder, colon, intestines, or other internal organs and structures.

An unusual call to 911 was placed on February 25, 2015 at 10:29 a.m. The Planned Parenthood caller hung up, then when 911 called back, the dispatcher was placed on hold. Finally, an employee that identified herself as Nora Harper, told the dispatcher that she had a patient suffering from vaginal bleeding who required emergency transport to the hospital.

Listen to the 911 call from February 25, 2015:

The following day, on February 26, 2015, another call was placed to 911 at 4:26 p.m. A Planned Parenthood employee identified as Nadia called for an emergency transport of a patient suffering a possible ruptured ectopic pregnancy.

A ruptured ectopic pregnancy can occur when an abortionist fails to confirm that the pregnancy is in the uterus and gives either a surgical or medication abortion. In those cases, the pregnancy continues to grow in the fallopian tube, which cannot expand enough to support a pregnancy. Once the baby gets too big, the fallopian tube painfully ruptures, creating a life-threatening medical emergency.

Listen to the 911 call from February 26, 2015:

For example, on August 20, 2010, another Planned Parenthood abortionist Aqua Don Umoren, conducted a suction abortion on Roberta Clark at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Birmingham, Alabama. Umoren insisted the pregnancy was in the uterus, however, the patient was actually experiencing an ectopic pregnancy. She received the abortion and was set home thinking everything was fine, but continued to suffer nausea and lower-quadrant abdominal pain. He later reported to an emergency room and was forced to undergo emergency surgery to remove a 13-week pregnancy and her right fallopian tube. She sued Umoren and Planned Parenthood for malpractice.

It is not known if the Houston Planned Parenthood patient experienced a similar situation during the February 26 emergency, but the possibility does exists.

Abortionists at the Houston Planned Parenthood include Ann Irene Schutt-Aine, Paul Martin Fine, and Soren John Vindekilde.

Planned Parenthood in Houston has a long history of injuring women, including the following examples.

On August 23, 2012, 911 records show that a patient hemorrhaged after abortion at Planned Parenthood in Houston.

During a 911 call placed on December, 14, 2013, from the towering Houston Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, the caller is heard using medical abbreviations and “shorthand” terminology to conceal the fact that an abortion 33-year old 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 from December 14, 2013:

In fact, Operation Rescue determined from data found in court records that as many as 1,000 women are hospitalized in Texas each year due to abortion complications.

While all these incidents took place at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Houston, Operation Rescue has documented dozens of similar emergencies at Planned Parenthood clinics across America.

In 2015 alone, Operation Rescue has documented 14 abortion-related medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood facilities in eight states, including California, Illinois, Michigan, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Washington.

“Planned Parenthood poses a particular danger to poor women of color, who they aggressively target for abortions. If ‘Black Lives Matter’ to Planned Parenthood, they would stop marketing abortions to Blacks and other minority women,” said Newman.

Spokane 911 Records Censored, But Still Show Planned Parenthood Patient Hemorrhaged

By Cheryl Sullenger

Spokane, WA – New 911 recordings obtained by Operation Rescue show that a Planned Parenthood patient in Spokane who was transported to the hospital on April 15, 2015, was hemorrhaging.

“This is Angie from Planned Parenthood. We need an ambulance for a patient we can’t get to stop bleeding,” a Planned Parenthood caller told a 911 dispatcher.

The Planned Parenthood worker was transferred to a Fire Department dispatcher who asked her what happened. The rest of the recording was redacted.

“Planned Parenthood in Spokane had no ability to treat this patient who suffered a common abortion complication. Many women are not aware that free-standing abortion facilities cannot help them in the event of a medical emergency and that there will be delays in receiving emergency care,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Pro-life activists with Sidewalk Advocates for Life of Spokane shot video footage as an ambulance loaded a patient at the Indiana Health Center of Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Spokane, Washington, then sped away to a local hospital with lights flashing and sirens blaring.

As previously reported by Operation Rescue, the video clearly showed a woman carrying what appeared to be a red plastic biohazard bag who rode with the ambulance to the hospital. Aborted baby remains are often placed in such bags, but there was no way to determine from the video exactly what was in the red bag.

The abortionist responsible is currently unknown, but Sidewalk Advocates for Life of Spokane told Operation Rescue that it was the first time he had been seen at that Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

“Yet another medical emergency at a Planned Parenthood facility has endangered the life of a woman who likely thought she was going to receive quality medical care. Abortionists prey on women like this who have no idea that they could end up in the hospital or even in the morgue,” said Newman. “For all their rhetoric about caring for women, Planned Parenthood actually hurts women, as the many 911 recordings such as this one, which we have collected over the years, clearly demonstrate. After injuring this woman, Planned Parenthood in Spokane is too dangerous to operate and should be shut down immediately.”

Ambulance Transports Planned Parenthood Patient on Abortionist’s First Day on the Job

Spokane, WA – Pro-life activists with Sidewalk Advocates for Life of Spokane shot video footage as an ambulance loaded a patient at the Indiana Health Center of Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Spokane, Washington, then sped away to a local hospital with lights flashing and sirens blaring.

The woman appeared to be completely covered head to toe with blankets or sheets. An IV bag could be seen hanging over the gurney. One clinic worker with an umbrella unsuccessfully attempted to block view of the gurney from the street.

Adding a “creep factor” to the incident, the video clearly showed a woman carrying what appeared to be a red plastic biohazard bag who rode with the ambulance to the hospital. Aborted baby remains are often placed in such bags, but there was no way to determine from the video exactly what was in the red bag.

Sadly, as the ambulance was parked near the front door for over 17 minutes, women continued to enter the abortion clinic, ignoring the possibility that they could be next.

The abortionist responsible is currently unknown, but Sidewalk Advocates for Life of Spokane told Operation Rescue that it was the first time he had been seen at that Planned Parenthood abortion facility.

The incident, which took place on Wednesday, April 15, 2015, was the second known medical emergency at this Planned Parenthood facility this year.

So far in 2015, Operation Rescue has documented 25 medical emergencies at abortion clinics across the country, including 11 at Planned Parenthood facilities in seven states.

It is important to note, however, pro-life witnesses are only able to document a very small fraction of all complications that take place at abortion facilities.

“Abortion just isn’t safe. Certainly it is fatal for the baby, but women also risk their lives at shoddy abortion clinics, as we have seen over and over,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Abortion clinics generally only call an ambulance when a woman is suffering a life-threatening emergency, so every time we see one of these incidents, we know some woman’s life is on the line. In the interest of public safety alone, every abortion clinic in the nation should be shut down!”
