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.

“Butcher of Bellevue” Strikes: 17-Week Abortion Gone Wrong At Carhart’s Nebraska Abortion Mill

UPDATE! Read the 911 CAD printout. See video with 911 recording below.

Bellevue, NE – The notorious late-term abortionist LeRoy Carhart, 75, who has killed one abortion patient and hospitalized at least 15 others in the past five years, has seriously injured yet another abortion patient, who required emergency medical intervention and hospitalization.

Emergency units were dispatched to Carhart’s dilapidated Abortion and Contraception Clinic of Nebraska, located in the Omaha suburb of Bellevue, in response to a 911 call place at approximately 3:08 p.m. on Friday, March 24, 2017. The fire unit was first on the scene, followed minutes later by an ambulance.

According to emergency dispatch radio traffic obtained by Operation Rescue, the patient was a 35-year old female who had just completed at abortion of her baby at 17-weeks gestation.

“Carhart has not aged well, and he is injuring more women as time goes by. We have followed Carhart’s exploits for many years and know that while he has always been too good at killing babies, he has never been very good at avoiding catastrophic medical injuries and patient deaths,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “There is no way he should be allowed to continue his baby-killing business that has maimed and killed so many women.”

The woman suffered from difficulty breathing and excessive bleeding that Carhart and a second physician were incapable of controlling at the run-down facility where Carhart has operated for decades.

This once again raises questions about the safety of women seeking abortions at stand-alone facilities that are not equipped to cope with the many life-threatening complications that can arise, especially during the riskier second and third trimester abortions for which Carhart is well known.

Paramedics spent 17 minutes inside the facility before transporting the injured woman using Code 2 to Bellevue Medical Center. Code 2 represents an acute but non-time critical transport that does not require lights and sirens.

Carhart was seen on the video exiting his abortion facility and climbing into the ambulance so he could accompany his patient to the hospital – something Carhart rarely does. However, the aging abortionist holds no hospital privileges and would not be allowed to continue treating her (perhaps thankfully) once she reached the hospital.

“Only a political climate that is bent on protecting abortionists at any costs has kept a shoddy abortionist like Carhart in business. Corrupt abortion attorneys shield him from the consequences of his actions, which are much more akin to those of Josef Mengle than Albert Schweitzer,” said Newman.

Carhart is currently being sued by former abortion patient Wendy Devine, who is alleging that LeRoy Carhart so severely botched her late-term at Germantown Reproductive Health Services in Germantown, Maryland, that she nearly died and will likely never bear another child.

Carhart was also under investigation by the House Select Investigative Panel on Infant Lives for suspected participation in the illegal sale of aborted baby remains, and for possible violations of the Born Alive Infant Protection Act. Unfortunately, the Panel ended before the investigation could be concluded.

Below are other medical emergencies involving LeRoy Carhart that have occurred over the past five years.

EMTs Extricate Woman from Abortion Facility into Back Alley Strewn with Trash Dumpsters

By Cheryl Sullenger

Fargo, ND – When an ambulance was summoned on Wednesday to the Red River Women’s Clinic abortion facility in Fargo, North Dakota, paramedics discovered that the gurney they used could not fit in the front door.

Instead, they went around to the back door and brought the patient out into an alley filled with trash dumpsters.

“It’s almost like the Red River Women’s Clinic sent this woman out with the trash,” said Troy Newman, President of Operation Rescue. “Their only employee seen at the scene wore a pink eared-hat that vulgarly objectifies women and reduces them to merely their reproductive parts. It is a disgusting view of women that should make the Red River Women’s Center staff blush with embarrassment.”

Records accessed by Operation Rescue show that the patient, whose head was covered with towels, was transferred to another facility – most likely a hospital – in Clay County, Minnesota, just across the state line from Fargo.

“Once again, an ill-equipped abortion facility that isn’t prepared to handle emergencies that commonly arise from abortions, must call for help to hospitalize one of their patients,” said Newman. “Abortion facilities are not equipped to handle botched abortions, yet they fight like the devil to keep doing them anyway, no matter how many are maimed or killed. We call on the North Dakota Board of Medicine to immediately investigate the Red River Women’s Clinic.”

The woefully outdated Red River Women’s Clinic is the last remaining abortion facility in North Dakota and is a member of the National Abortion Federation, a group of abortion facilities that are often found to be among the nation’s most shoddy.

The NAF also has been linked with Planned Parenthood to the sale of illegal aborted baby body parts. The NAF filed suit against Troy Newman and the Center for Medical Progress to block the release of footage that might incriminate them.
