Fifth Carhart Abortion Patient Rushed To Emergency Room in Maryland

By Cheryl Sullenger

Germantown, MD – For at least the fifth time since LeRoy Carhart located his late-term abortion business to Maryland, one of his abortion patients has been rushed to a hospital emergency room by ambulance.

On December 15, 2015, the Maryland Coalition for Life reports that Carhart, who is nationally known for being one of the few abortion providers to conduct third trimester elective abortions, accompanied a patient in the ambulance as she was rushed away to receive emergency help for what appeared to be an abortion-related emergency.

The Coalition provided video of the incident to Operation Rescue.

“Carhart continues to endanger women while the authorities in Maryland look the other way. We are concerned for the woman who was transported to the hospital and can only wonder how many women must suffer injury or death until Carhart’s medical license is revoked,” said Newman.

Operation Rescue has also documented Carhart’s involvement in the third-trimester abortionrelated death of 19-year old Christin Gilbert in Wichita, Kansas in 2005.

Earlier this year, while another of Carhart’s patients was being loaded into an awaiting ambulance, a videographer was assaulted by abortion activists working for Carhart as she attempted to document that incident.

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!”
