Safety Hazard: Houston Planned Parenthood Sends Four Patients to the ER in Less Than 30 Days

By Cheryl Sullenger

Houston, TX — The Houston Coalition for Life is reporting that in less than 30 days, there have been four women rushed to a local hospital by ambulance from the Planned Parenthood Center for Choice, located at 4600 Gulf Freeway in Houston, Texas.

Operation Rescue earlier reported that one documented medical emergency took place at this Planned Parenthood facility on February 6, 2015.

Sidewalk counselors have now reported that a previous incident took place on Saturday, January 31, 2015.

Since then, ambulances were photographed at Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Houston on February 25th and 26th.

“That makes 4 in less than 30 days!” noted a Houston Coalition for Life in a February 26th Facebook posting. “If you saw a ‘clinic’ with an ambulance leaving on average once a week, would you trust their medical practices?”

Not much is known about the condition of the four women. Operation Rescue is seeking the 911 records related to these four incidents, which may shed additional light on what happened and the dangers that exist at this Planned Parenthood facility.

“Even though this Planned Parenthood abortion clinic is licensed as an Ambulatory Surgical Center, it is evident that safety problems still exist there. It is imperative that the Texas Department of Health take seriously complaints about this facility and act to shut it down,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman.

Operation Rescue has documented at least five other medical emergencies at this Houston Planned Parenthood facility, making nine in all over the past three years. However, many more could have occurred outside the presence of pro-life activists who document these incidents.

Operation Rescue has also reported that court records indicate that as many as 1,000 women are hospitalized in Texas each year due to abortion complications.

A new abortion clinic licensing law known as HB2 has helped close 20 of the worst offending abortion facilities in Texas over the past two years.

“It is obvious that Texas has a long way to go to fully protect women from shoddy abortion practices,” said Newman.

Abortion Emergency Filmed at Dangerous Brigham-Owned Pensacola, FL Abortion Clinic

By Cheryl Sullenger

Pensacola, FL — A Pensacola, Florida abortion facility, owned by the notorious New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, transported a woman to the hospital on Thursday, February 19, 2015.

The ambulance arrived around 2:20 pm while pro-life activist Dave Halupowski videotaped the incident during a 40 Days for Life Prayer vigil outside the abortion clinic.

The condition of the woman is currently unknown.

The abortionist thought to be responsible for the medical emergency is Warren I. Taylor, D.O., a Pennsylvania abortionist who also works at several of Brigham’s eight New Jersey abortion facilities. After Brigham was ordered to stop operating abortion facilities in Pennsylvania, Taylor allowed his license in that state to lapse, but still maintains valid licenses in Florida and New Jersey.

Brigham’s own Florida medical license was surrendered years ago under pressure from the Florida Department of Health. His last remaining medical license was revoked by New Jersey in 2014 after it was discovered that he was practicing medicine without a license in Maryland and operating an illegal, under-the-radar bi-state late-term abortion mill there that was meant to circumvent the laws in his home state of New Jersey.

Brigham was arrested and charged with murder in 2010 for aborting viable, late-term babies, after police raided Brigham’s clandestine Elkton, Maryland, abortion facility and discovered the remains of over 30 late-term babies stored in a bloody freezer. Those charges were later dropped after an expert witness for the prosecution withdrew from the case.

Despite suffering license revocation or surrender in at least six states and his involvement in a number of illegal abortion operations, Brigham continues to run a chain of 17 dangerously shoddy abortion facilities on the east coast and in Florida.

In 2012, Maria Santiago died from a botched abortion at a Brigham owned Baltimore, Maryland, abortion clinic that was located in a residential condo. Maryland has since shut down his four abortion clinics in that state and banned Brigham from operating abortion facilities there.

“Brigham is among the worst of America’s abortionists. His shoddy practices rival those of ‘House of Horrors’ abortionist Kermit Gosnell. Even his hired abortionists that keep his clinics operating now are among the bottom of a very rotten barrel,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue

Operation Rescue staff members have filed numerous complaints against Brigham and abortionists in his employment and published extensively in an attempt to expose his horrific abortion abuses. OR’s complaints helped strip Brigham abortionist Nicola Riley of medical licenses in three states and aided in the closure of an illegal abortion facility Brigham was operating in Philadelphia in 2013.

Operation Rescue is urging the public to contact the Florida Department of Health, Medical Quality Assurance Division and ask for the immediate closure of American Family Planning of Pensacola.

Abortionist Places Bizarre 911 Call With Shocking Ending

By Cheryl Sullenger

Salem, Oregon – Operation Rescue has received an audio file through a Freedom of Information Act request containing a bizarre 911 call placed by a Planned Parenthood abortionist in Salem, Oregon, who appears to have actually further endangered an injured 21-year old abortion patient by trying to hide the seriousness of her injuries.

Abortionist Valerie J. King, 55, placed the call at 1:03 pm on November 14, 2014, from the Salem Planned Parenthood abortion facility, with which the dispatcher seemed to be well familiar.

King’s odd behavior and unusual drawl raised speculation that she may have been chemically or otherwise impaired at the time of the abortion. She spent most of three-minute call trying to persuade the dispatcher that the patient was “really fine” and just needed to go to the hospital for an exploratory laparoscopy.

That comment alone raised red flags. Usually abortion patients do not require an exploratory laparoscopy unless the abortionist is trying to determine the extent of internal injuries.

King volunteered to the dispatcher, “So she’s conscious, she’s alert, she’s breathing. She’s fine. She’s really fine. She’s ambulatory. She’s – everything!”

King declined Advanced Life Support assistance, and asked only for a Basic Life Support response. Basic Life Support is used for injuries that do not require invasive medical intervention.

It wasn’t until the last seconds of the call when King shockingly defined her understanding of the words “really fine.”

After the dispatcher asked if there was anything else she should know, King blurted out, “Uh — I don’t — She’s immediately post abortion and had a perforation of her uterus.”

In reality, a perforated uterus represents a life-threatening medical emergency.

Women have died from such injuries suffered during abortions. A case in point is Tonya Reaves, 24, who died at a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic in Chicago in July, 2012. Reaves’ abortionist, Mandy Gittler, perforated her uterus then left her bleeding internally for over 5 hours before calling an ambulance to transport her to the hospital. By then it was too late, and Reaves died from massive blood loss.

Fortunately, Operation Rescue was able to confirm that King’s injured abortion patient somehow survived her injuries.

“This woman was very lucky not to end up on a cold slab in the morgue, but we know that there are a long list of other abortion patients who were not so fortunate,” said Newman. “It appears that King was trying to conceal the truth about how serious her patient’s injuries really were, but by downplaying them, she may have delayed her patient in getting the emergency care she needed. That is completely unacceptable conduct, and we will be forwarding our concerns about King and Planned Parenthood to the Oregon Medical Board.”
