Suffering Abortion Patient Transported by Ambulance from Planned Parenthood’s NYC Margaret Sanger Center

By Cheryl Sullenger

New York City, NY – As the 44th memorial of the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision that decriminalized abortion approached, Planned Parenthood provided us with a cautionary tale — one it hoped would never become public.

While Planned Parenthood prepared to celebrate “safe, legal” abortion, one of their own abortion patients was transported by ambulance from Planned Parenthood’s flagship Margaret Sanger Center abortion facility in New York City. The incident took place on January 18, 2017, at approximately 11:45 a.m.

Just two hours before, a pro-life activist spoke with the patient’s husband, who confirmed that the woman was at the Planned Parenthood facility for an abortion.

The woman was removed from the abortion facility on a gurney and wheeled to the ambulance, passing under a large pink banner that ironically read “Healthcare happens.”

“Healthcare really doesn’t happen at Planned Parenthood abortion facilities. There’s no way anyone can seriously consider dismembering an innocent child in the womb to be ‘healthcare,’” said Operation Rescue President Troy Newman. “In fact, Planned Parenthood is also responsible for injuring and killing women during botched abortions that their often sub-standard abortion centers. That’s not rhetoric. That’s fact and we have volumes of documentation to prove it. Abortion was never safe, and it still isn’t.”

The Planned Parenthood abortion patient was lying on her side in the fetal position on the gurney. One witness who photographed the incident told Operation Rescue that the woman appeared to be in a great deal of pain.

Pro-life activists on the scene were able to get contact information for further assistance into the hands of the husband before his wife was rushed to the hospital.

Operation Rescue confirmed through publicly available radio communications that an ambulance was dispatched to Planned Parenthood’s Bleecker Street address on Margaret Sanger Square at 11:20 a.m. No other information was available on the patient’s condition.

This represents the fifth documented medical emergency at the Margaret Sanger Center Planned Parenthood. On November 4, 2016, an African-American woman was brought out of the Planned Parenthood abortion facility in a wheelchair, placed on a gurney, and transported by ambulance. A similar incidents took place on March 1, 2016; October 14, 2015; and May 4, 2013.

“As the nation marks the 44th memorial of Roe v. Wade with pro-life marches around the country, we can see that the need to defund Planned Parenthood is more urgent than ever,” said Newman. “If Planned Parenthood wants to continue the business of aborting babies and maiming women, it shouldn’t do it with our tax money, which can be better spent on providing real healthcare to women.”

New York Abortionist Charged with Manslaughter in Late-term Abortion Death

Queens, NY – A New York abortionist, Robert Rho, 52, has been indicted on one count of second degree manslaughter in the death of one of his patients, 30-year old Jaimie Lee Morales of Buffalo, who died on July 9, 2016, after a severely botched second trimester abortion.

Rho was charged on Tuesday during a court appearance in Queens, and was released on a $400,000 bail bond. He has promised not to engage in the practice of medicine.

Rho’s attorney told news media, which have already given this case national attention, that Rho closed his abortion facility voluntarily after Morales’ death.

Morales went to Rho’s Liberty Women’s Health Care in Flushing on July 9 for an elective second trimester abortion. According to news reports, Rho thought the abortion went without complication until staff noticed she was bleeding heavily in the recovery room. Rho determined that she required a second procedure, but that did nothing to control the bleeding.

Despite being woozy and having collapsed once at the clinic, Rho released Morales to her sister, who put Morales in her car and began the trip to the sister’s home in the Bronx. Along the way Morales fell off the back seat and became non-responsive as the result of heavy hemorrhaging.

Morales was transported by ambulance to a Bronx-area hospital where she was pronounced dead later that evening.

moralesAn autopsy was performed where it was learned that Rho had lacerated her cervix, punctured her uterus and sliced her uterine artery. Any one of those injuries would cause heavy bleeding, but together, they proved catastrophic.

Prosecutors charged Rho, saying he had been “reckless” in failing to provide adequate medical attention in a timely manner.

“From statements news reports, it seems that Robert Rho’s attorney thinks we should just shrug off the death of Jaime Lee Morales as an unexpected abortion complication. But when a mistake by an abortionist takes a mother’s life, we cannot simply take a ‘things happen’ attitude,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Rho didn’t just make a small mistake, he literally butchered her then kicked her to the curb. We have high praise for the prosecutors that had the courage to seek justice.”

Operation Rescue was aware of Rho and his Liberty Women’s Health Care abortion facility, which were listed at AbortionDocs.org, but little was known about them. Rho had been conducting abortions along with female genital reconstruction surgery for 23 years. There is no record of any previous disciplinary action on his New York medical license profile that may have attracted attention.

Morales is the second woman this year known to have died after an abortion. On July 3, Cree Erwin died in her mother’s bed after receiving an early abortion by Laura Castleman at Planned Parenthood in Kalamazoo, Michigan. An autopsy is still pending in that case.

She Walked into Planned Parenthood Yesterday, but She Didn’t Walk Out

Annapolis, MD – She walked into a Planned Parenthood abortion facility yesterday morning, but she didn’t walk out.

An ambulance was called on the morning of Tuesday, October 4, 2016, for a hemorrhaging patient at the Planned Parenthood clinic in Annapolis, Maryland.

Local pro-life activist Pamela Palumbo provided Operation Rescue with photos and video within minutes of the incident that showed female patient being removed from the abortion facility on a gurney. She was then transported to a nearby hospital.

A radio traffic recording made by Anne Arundel County Police, Fire and EMS was immediately obtained by Operation Rescue.

The recording revealed that units, including an ambulance, were dispatched to Planned Parenthood, located in the Mason Building on West Street in Annapolis at about 11:08 a.m. in response to a hemorrhage.

This is the second documented medical emergency at the Annapolis Planned Parenthood this year. Another woman was transported to the hospital on Tuesday, January 5, 2016. The injuries suffered by that patient are unknown due to heavily redacted 911 records.

On February 19, 2013, the Annapolis Planned Parenthood failed its initial licensing inspection after an inspector documented improper sterilization of surgical instruments in a leaky sterilization machine. The facility was granted a license anyway.

Inspectors did not return to Planned Parenthood for nearly 2½ years. In July, 2015, the facility was found by some stroke of luck to be in compliance with Surgical Abortion Facility requirements.

“I have seen so many pictures of ambulances at abortion clinics that I lost track long ago,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “It is time for regulators to take their jobs more seriously and protect the public from being injured, maimed, and even killed at American abortion facilities, as we have seen happen all too often. Right now, women are fodder for exploitation and harm by unscrupulous, profit-centered abortion businesses. Enough is enough!”
