Man, Young Child Witness Loved One Taken from Planned Parenthood by Ambulance

Twenty-third Planned Parenthood medical emergency in five months makes defunding Planned Parenthood an urgent necessity.

By Cheryl Sullenger

Bremerton, WA – As a man and a very young girl paced in the parking lot of a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Bremerton, Washington, two ambulances and a fire unit responded to a medical emergency that appeared to involve their loved one.

This represents the 23rd time an ambulance has been spotted outside a Planned Parenthood center this year.

Video of the incident was taken on June 7, 2017, by Laurie Coykendall, leader of the Bremerton area chapter of Sidewalk Advocates for Life, who provided it to Operation Rescue.

A fire unit was already on the scene when the first ambulance crew arrived and took a gurney into Planned Parenthood. A short time later, they came out with the empty gurney.

Soon, a second ambulance manned by paramedics arrived and entered Planned Parenthood. It is believed that the first ambulance was only equipped for “Basic Life Support.” The second ambulance of paramedics would have been equipped with “Advanced Life Support” capabilities, indicating the patient’s situation may have been more serious than expected.

When the emergency responders began to interact with the man and young girl, it became apparent that the woman involved in the medical emergency was somehow related to them.

The woman was taken out of the Planned Parenthood facility on a gurney completely covered with a sheet. The man and the little girl followed the ambulance in a private vehicle when it left Planned Parenthood.

“Twenty-three women in five months have walked into a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, only to be brought out on a gurney, while our tax money continues to subsidize Planned Parenthood’s life-destructive quackery,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “As the Senate considers legislation – possibly next week — to deny further funding to Planned Parenthood, I urge everyone to call their Senators today and let them know that Planned Parenthood must be defunded in the new health care bill. This is not negotiable.”

Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood Seriously Botches Abortion That Fiancé Tried to Prevent

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY – Pro-life activist Michael Sweeney stood outside of the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion facility on May 24, 2017, attempting to offer help to women seeking abortions as he so often does.

But what started as a routine shift at the abortion facility would soon change into an intense effort to save a baby, and later the life of its mother.

One man emerged from the towering Planned Parenthood abortion facility in the heart of Lower Manhattan to speak with Michael. He had just dropped off his fiancée for an abortion. At one point, Michael persuaded the man to go back inside Planned Parenthood to speak to his fiancée about possibly leaving without the abortion.

However, the security guard posted in the building entryway must have seen him speaking to Michael. Not only was the man was barred from seeing the woman, he was not even allowed to reenter Planned Parenthood’s waiting room. Frustrated and upset, he returned to speak further with Michael.

As they waited on the sidewalk, Michael put the man on the telephone with the Sisters of Life, who explained more about the abortion and about what options were available. After about an hour, Michael’s shift was over and he had to leave his new friend to wait for his fiancée alone.

Meanwhile, the man resumed his conversation on his own phone with the Sisters for Life as long minutes of waiting turned into hours. As he was on the phone with one of the nuns about three hours after Michael left, he saw an ambulance pull up.

He hoped the ambulance was not for his fiancée. What were the odds of that? But soon, the paramedics emerged and his worst fears were realized. The woman in the care of paramedics was indeed his loved one.

She was rushed to NYU Langdon Medical Center several blocks away where she underwent emergency surgery for two and a half hours. One of the Sisters for Life visited the hospital and spoke to a nurse, who confirmed the woman was in surgery. The nun left a prayer card for the nurse to give to the patient.

While the extent of her injuries remains unknown, they were obviously severe considering the length of the surgery she endured to repair the damage from the botched abortion. When Michael followed up with his new friend to see how he and his fiancée were doing, he was told the woman was recovering slowly.

This was certainly not the first time an ambulance has visited Planned Parenthood’s flagship Margaret Sanger abortion facility in New York. Operation Rescue has verified that this was the fifth documented medical emergency at the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood this year alone, making this Planned Parenthood abortion office one of the most dangerous in the country.

What might have been if that security guard had allowed the man Michael Sweeney befriended back into Planned Parenthood to speak with his loved one? Perhaps a life would have been saved and a woman spared the traumatic injury of a bungled abortion.

It was obvious that it is Planned Parenthood’s policy to keep companions from interacting with abortion patients once they have been seen so the women will not change their minds at the last minute.

“Planned Parenthood is only about one choice and that is abortion,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “If they were really interested in the woman’s well-being, they would not prevent family members from seeing or communicating their loved ones. This is a tragedy that could well have been avoided if Planned Parenthood had treated this couple with dignity instead of like a dollar bill.”

Stamford Planned Parenthood Summons Ambulance for 21st Known Medical Emergency in 5 Months

By Cheryl Sullenger

Stamford, CT — For the second time this year, an ambulance was dispatched to the Stamford Health Center Planned Parenthood, an abortion facility located in Stamford, Connecticut.

The incident occurred soon after a group of pro-life activists had left for the day. However, one activist remained in the neighborhood running errands when he happened to notice an ambulance headed in the direction of the Planned Parenthood center.

He returned to the street to pray for whoever needed assistance until the ambulance left, which was followed closely by a private vehicle that had been parked in the lot. No lights or sirens were used.

A radio dispatch recording obtained by Operation Rescue revealed that an ambulance and a rescue unit had been dispatched using the Delta priority designation, which is a non-life threatening priority code that does not require the use of lights and sirens.

The subject was a 29-year old female who had lost consciousness, but was breathing normally. It is assumed she was transported to a nearby hospital.

This follows a previous medical emergency that took place on February 15, 2017, in which an ambulance was called to the Planned Parenthood facility for a patient suffering a seizure. Photos and a radio traffic recording was included in a February Operation Rescue compilation video featuring 18 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood since January 2016, which was meant to persuade Washington legislators to defund Planned Parenthood.

Since then, Operation Rescue has documented a total of 48 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities since January 2016 – twenty-one of which took place within the first five months of 2017.

“Whether it is a minor condition or a life-threatening abortion complication, the public need to be aware that ambulances are being summoned to Planned Parenthood abortion facilities at an alarming rate,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Planned Parenthood’s inability to guarantee the safety of their patients and the fact that their facilities are ill-equipped to handle even a minor incident, provided an urgent reason to stop propping up Planned Parenthood with our tax money.

Ambulance Transports Fourth Woman This Year from Planned Parenthood’s Margaret Sanger Abortion Center

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY – In what has become a tragically routine occurrence, an African-American abortion patient was transported by ambulance from the Margaret Sanger Planned Parenthood abortion facility, located at 26 Bleecker St. in New York City.

This represents the fourth emergency ambulance transport from Planned Parenthood’s flagship New York abortion facility in 2017, and the 17th overall medical emergency documented at Planned Parenthood abortion businesses around the nation this year.

Photos of the incident taken by an alert pro-life activist on the scene are the only evidence available to document the medical emergency. Operation Rescue’s repeated efforts to obtain the 911 records have been completely ignored by the New York Fire Department. A search of the radio traffic archives for the most recent incident showed either static during the time of the emergency or had audio files missing altogether.

Medics arrived at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility at 10:56 a.m. on May 13, 2017, and entered with a rolling chair. However, the patient walked out of Planned Parenthood under her own power with a bit of assistance from another woman who had accompanied her to the abortion business.

As Planned Parenthood’s blue-aproned “escorts” looked on from the sidewalk, the patient climbed into the ambulance for transport to the hospital for care that Planned Parenthood could not provide.

“After so many women have been injured and killed by so-called ‘safe’ abortions at Planned Parenthood, one would think that defunding them would be an easy thing for Congress to accomplish,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “It is unconscionable for our tax dollars continue to enable Planned Parenthood despite their butchery – not to mention the criminal referrals made a few months ago by House and Senate investigatory panels.”

Earlier this year House and Senate separately issued criminal referrals to the Department of Justice and state attorneys general seeking criminal investigations and prosecutions of Planned Parenthood Federation of America and five affiliated Planned Parenthood organizations after uncovering evidence that Planned Parenthood engaged in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains and other crimes.

Operation Rescue encourages everyone who opposes tax funding for Planned Parenthood to contact their Senators right now and ask that they vote to defund Planned Parenthood as soon as humanly possible.

Planned Parenthood Abortionist Forces Botched Abortion Patient to be Dangerously Transported to ER in Private Vehicle

By Cheryl Sullenger

Dover, DE — It was the stuff of nightmares. A woman walked into the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Dover, Delaware, last Friday thinking that she would be getting a “safe” abortion done by a competent provider. She couldn’t have been more mistaken.

Instead she received a botched, incomplete abortion by done by Larry Roy Glazerman, a former Florida doctor who has hurt a woman during surgery before.

To make matters worse, Planned Parenthood refused to properly call an ambulance for the woman who was suffering from a tremendous amount of pain. Instead, clinic workers walked her and her boyfriend out to their private vehicle.

A pro-life activist on the scene at the time of the incident spoke with the boyfriend about what happened at the Planned Parenthood facility.

She told Operation Rescue that he said Glazerman started the suction abortion procedure but the baby “wasn’t in the right position” and “would not fit into the suction tube.” He instructed the boyfriend to take the patient to the emergency room.

“The doctor there can do the abortion,” Glazerman reportedly told the boyfriend, who took information from the pro-life activist, but turned down further assistance.

The woman was then rushed via private vehicle to Kent Hospital’s emergency room where her abortion was presumably completed.

“It is outrageous that Planned Parenthood would refuse to call for an ambulance transport for a woman in the middle of a painful botched abortion,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It shows Planned Parenthood is more interested in covering up their mistakes than taking proper care of women.”

In 2013, the Dover Planned Parenthood abortion office temporarily suspended surgical abortions after dangerous conditions and practices were uncovered, thanks to two former Planned Parenthood workers who came forward to testify before the Delaware Legislature and the news media about what they saw.

Jayne Mitchell-Werbrich and Joyce Vasikonis told WPVI-TV of a “meat-market style of assembly-line abortions where the abortionist refused to wear gloves, surgical instruments were reused without being cleaned, and “bloody drainage” remained on abortion tables between procedures, exposing women to blood-borne diseases.”

“It was just unsafe. I can’t tell you how ridiculously unsafe it was,” said Mitchell-Werbrich. “Planned Parenthood needs to close its doors, it needs to be cleaned up, the staff needs to be trained.”

Glazerman is licensed in Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Florida. While working in Florida, he performed a routine overian cyst removal procedure on Lisa Marie Carter, a former Department of Defense intelligence analyst. Carter sued Glazerman in 2012, after she experienced severe complications from the procedure. According to news reports, Glazerman sliced through her bowel during the procedure, causing a massive infection. As a result of the infection, Carter suffered the amputation of her hands and feet and a portion of her lower legs. She must now live in a nursing home.

“Perhaps it’s no wonder that Planned Parenthood never called an ambulance for their botched abortion patient. Could it be that they were trying to conceal the complication in order to avoid further trouble for the abortion business as well as the troubled abortionist? With their federal funding currently at risk, it’s possible,” said Newman.

So far in 2017, there have been 17 documented medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities across the nation.

“Incidents like these at Planned Parenthood abortion businesses should give the Senate a sense of urgency when it comes to defunding Planned Parenthood,” Newman said. “A business that makes their living killing and maiming women while dismembering their pre-born babies must not be enabled with our tax money to continue inflicting harm.”
