Virginia Beach Planned Parenthood Hospitalizes Second Woman in a Month

By Cheryl Sullenger

Virginia Beach, VA — For the second time in the span of a month, the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia, has hospitalized another patient.

On April 7, 2017, an ambulance was called to Planned Parenthood for a 22-year old who was bleeding so severely that she needed emergency hospital care. Pro-life supporters snapped photos as an African American woman was wheeled out the Planned Parenthood’s back door and into an awaiting ambulance.

Emergency radio dispatch communications, obtained by Operation Rescue, verified that the woman was bleeding.

An earlier incident took place at this same Planned Parenthood facility on March 2, 2017, when an unconscious African-American patient was transported to a nearby hospital.

The most recent emergency represents the 15th time that a Planned Parenthood patient has been transported for urgent medical care that the abortion facility was unequipped to provide.

Overall, it is the 26th documented emergency at any abortion facility nationwide so far this year.

The abortionist on duty during the April 7 incident was an unknown female provider who has an aversion to being photographed.

“We are reporting on these abortion-related injuries too often — sometimes several times per week. How many more women must suffer life-threatening injuries or death before America wakes up and realizes that the brutal and violent process of abortion hurts women and kills their babies,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “We urge Congress to move swiftly to defund Planned Parenthood as soon as possible, and stop our tax money from benefiting a business that maims women and destroys the lives of innocent babies.”

Planned Parenthood Abortion Facilities Hospitalize Two More Patients

By Cheryl Sullenger

Virginia Beach, VA – Operation Rescue has learned that two Planned Parenthood abortion facilities have recently transported two African American patients to emergency rooms in two states.

Planned Parenthood in Boston, Massachusetts, called 911 for an emergency transport of an African American female patient on March 28, 2017. Photos taken on the scene by The Boston Rescuer show the patient slightly inclined on a gurney as she is being readied for ambulance transport.

This is the fifth medical emergency transport from the Boston Planned Parenthood documented by Operation Rescue. No further information about her condition is available.

However, much is known about another incident that took place on March 2, 2017, at a Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

An ambulance and fire unit responded to a call placed at 5:49 p.m. for an unconscious African-American patient. The Planned Parenthood worker called for emergency assistance because there was no doctor on the scene.

Louantha Kerr, a prolife activist who photographed the incident, saw abortionist David Peters return to the Planned Parenthood facility just minutes after the ambulance arrived. He had left the abortion facility before all patients had been discharged so he could get to A Tidewater Women’s Health Clinic (ATWHC), an abortion facility in Norfolk, where more abortion patients waited.

ATWHC abortion facility is approximately 10 minutes driving time from the Planned Parenthood in Virginia Beach. When he returned to the Planned Parenthood facility, he left a “parking lot full” of patients.

Peters, a former employee of the notorious New Jersey abortionist Steven Chase Brigham, is known to work at abortion facilities in four communities, often pulling double shifts.

Shoddy practices appear to be habitual with Peters. In 2001, while in Brigham’s employment, Peters was charged by the Virginia Board of Medicine for prescribing drugs “outside of a bona fide practitioner-patient relationship, as required by law.” He further “authorized the prescriptions without obtaining a medical or drug history, performing a comprehensive physical examination, providing information about the benefits and risks…and without initiating additional interventions and follow-up care.”

It took the Virginia Medical Board six years to issue discipline. Peters was reprimanded for those violations and ordered to take supplemental education courses.

After the March 2, 2017, incident, Kerr lodged a formal complaint with the Virginia Department of Health concerning Peters and his hectic schedule that often leaves surgical abortion patients still in recovery without a physician present.

Kerr was notified by the Virginia Department of Health in a letter dated March 21, 2017, that an investigation was conducted and that her allegations were, in fact, substantiated. However, there would be no action taken against Peters because the Department found no “deficiency” in deserting surgical abortion patients before they were stabilized.

“Unfortunately, we are seeing that African-American women are the ones injured and killed at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities, mainly because Planned Parenthood primarily targets Black communities for abortion,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “That says a lot about Planned Parenthood — and none of it is good.”

Operation Rescue released a chart last week detailing 37 known medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities since January 2016. The total is now to 39, including the death of Cree Erwin-Sheppard, who succumbed to a fatal uterine perforation received at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on June 30, 2016.

Please contact your Congressman and Senators and urge them to completely defund Planned Parenthood.

Safety Crisis: Planned Parenthood in St. Louis Hospitalizes 65th Patient While Congress Fiddles and Media Ignores

By Cheryl Sullenger

St. Louis, MO – While the main stream media looks the other way, Planned Parenthood abortion facility in St. Louis has sent hospitalized another woman on March 24, 2017 – just an 13 unlucky days after its last medical emergency on March 11.

This represents the 65th documented patient hospitalized with abortion complications by Planned Parenthood in St. Louis since 2009.

“We consider this the most dangerous abortion facility in the U.S.” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “If any other medical office in the country was calling for emergency assistance for patients as often as this facility is, it would be a public scandal. Investigative reporters would be falling over themselves trying to expose this safety crisis. But since abortion is involved, there is not one word from the media. Their silence is enabling this dangerous abortion business to continue the carnage of babies and mothers alike.”

A photograph of the incident was taken by a member of the Coalition for Life St. Louis during a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. The picture was snapped moments before Planned Parenthood workers deployed tarps, known as the “Sheets of Shame,” to block pro-life supporters from documenting the emergency.

The photo showed a woman on a gurney who was completely covered with sheets as she was removed from the notorious Planned Parenthood abortion facility for emergency transport.

Health Department records show that conditions at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood are also deteriorating along with patient care standards.

In January, Operation Rescue reported on five Statement of Deficiency Reports that showed Missouri state inspectors have cited the Str. Louis Planned Parenthood for 39 classes of violations involving 210 incidents – 53% (111) of which were related to failure to provide a safe and sanitary environment. [Read the full report.]

Those Deficiency Reports indicated that from 2013 through 2016, the violations at the St. Louis Planned Parenthood abortion facility have become more numerous and serious, including failure to properly clean the facility or properly sterilize surgical instruments used on patients.

“The failure of Congress to defund Planned Parenthood last week only ensures that more women will suffer and possibly die due to shoddy abortion facilities like the St. Louis mill, which will continue to prey on vulnerable pregnant women,” said Newman. “Congress needs to get down to business and figure out a way to defund Planned Parenthood now, as they promised the American people they would do.”

While Planned Parenthood insists that no tax money goes to abortions, Medicaid is currently reimbursing Planned Parenthood and other abortion businesses for abortion costs – another public scandal that the main stream media refuses to report.

With the pro-abortion news media covering up for Planned Parenthood’s widespread abuses – including a flood of patient injuries and safety violations – not much is likely to change at Planned Parenthood without Congressional action.
