No Luck of the Irish for Planned Parenthood Patient Hospitalized on St. Patrick’s Day

By Cheryl Sullenger

Ann Arbor, MI – An ambulance was spotted by two pro-life activists on March 17, 2017, at the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The ambulance appears to have transported a patient.

Video shows an ambulance partially concealed behind bushes at the Planned Parenthood office. The pro-life supporter, who took the brief video was participating in a 40 Days for Life prayer vigil. She noted that she had tried to get post-abortion healing materials to the man who accompanied the patient, but unfortunately, he was not receptive.

Previous medical emergencies that took place at the Ann Arbor Planned Parenthood occurred on March 12, May 8, and June 26, 2015.

“While we don’t have a lot of information on this obvious medical emergency at Planned Parenthood in Ann Arbor, when we look at how many of these incidents are taking place around the country, it becomes obvious that there is a health and safety crisis at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities around the nation,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “Since Planned Parenthood insists on profiting from the killing of innocent children and can’t keep their patients out of the emergency rooms and morgues, taxpayers should not be subsidizing their carnage. We must continue to urgently press Congress to defund Planned Parenthood.”

Operation Rescue has documented eight medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities nationwide in the opening weeks of 2017, but that number is far from comprehensive, and reflects the need for better abortion complication reporting laws in every state.

Please continue to contact your U.S. Congressman and Senators and urge them to defund Planned Parenthood.

Ambulance Transports Patient from NAF Abortion Facility in Jacksonville, Florida

By Cheryl Sullenger

Jacksonville, FL – Rescue units were dispatched to the Jacksonville Women’s Choice abortion facility in Jacksonville, Florida, on February 15, 2017, for a patient who was suffering a medical emergency. She required hospitalization for treatment the abortion business was not equipped to provide.

Pro-life activists on the scene provided Operation Rescue with video of the incident. Radio communications confirmed that the patient was having seizures.

“This is a sight that is becoming far too common at our nation’s abortion facilities. That is because abortionists are bottom of the barrel as far as observing patient care standards. For some reason, abortionists act like those standards and other laws simply don’t apply to them,” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “All that corners-cutting ends up endangering women.”

Jacksonville Women’s Choice is a member of the National Abortion Federation, which has been implicated with Planned Parenthood in engaging in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains.

Jacksonville Women’s Choice has been the site of previous medical emergencies. It has also been fined repeatedly for violations of abortion reporting laws and cited for multiple health and safety deficiencies.

“Reporting on medical emergencies at abortion facilities, which do not have the capacity to treat women when things go wrong, helps to expose the dangers of abortion that the National Abortion Federation wants to keep hidden from the public,” said Newman. “We hope reports and videos will reach women with the truth about abortion dangers and convince them to seek other alternatives than abortion – for their own sakes as well as for their children.”

Two Paramedic Units Respond to Medical Emergency at CA Planned Parenthood

By Cheryl Sullenger

Santa Cruz, CA – Two units of paramedics responded to the Westside Health Center Planned Parenthood on Friday, March 3, 2017. This represents the 22nd time ambulances have rushed to a Planned Parenthood abortion facility since January, 2016.

Fire Department paramedics entered the Planned Parenthood office with a rolling stretcher, but soon returned it empty to their ambulance unit. Later, the patient was taken out to the sidewalk in front of Planned Parenthood where she was seen signing papers for the paramedic team after she refused ambulance transport.

While this woman’s condition was apparently not life-threatening, other women have not been so fortunate.

Some women who have died from Planned Parenthood abortions in recent years include:

Erica Goode was just 21 when she died from a massive infection contracted during an abortion at a Riverside, California, Planned Parenthood abortion facility in 2007.
Tonya Reaves, 23, suffered a uterine perforation during an abortion at a Chicago, Illinois, Planned Parenthood in 2012. She was left to bleed internally for over five hours before being transported to a hospital where she died.
Cree Erwin, 24, died from abortion complications in 2016, just three days after a surgical abortion resulted in a uterine perforation at Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Other women have been hospitalized suffering from hemorrhaging, seizures, and other serious medical issues. (Watch a video revealing 18 medical emergencies at Planned Parenthood since January 2016.)

“Whether women are injured a little or a lot, Planned Parenthood poses a very real danger to women,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “I’m tired of reading autopsy reports and listening to 911 calls about women who are bleeding out, in cardiac arrest, or suffering some other horrible injury. Abortion is immoral because it takes the innocent lives of precious babies and because it causes harm – sometimes deadly harm — to the mothers. The barbaric practice of abortion must be abolished once and for all.”

Operation Rescue supports Congressional efforts to defund of Planned Parenthood, the prosecution of criminal referrals made by both the U.S. House and Senate against Planned Parenthood.
